Chapter 8

The Altar of the Kingdom of Yahuah


Now that the spiritual Kingdom of Yahuah has been announced by Yahusha and the 7th Covenant has been consummated by the blood of the true Passover Lamb, let us examine the Altar of Yahuah in the Kingdom of Yahuah.

In the last chapter we clearly demonstrated that the Temple of Yahuah is the human body, the sum total of the sons of Yahuah; Yahusha being the Chief Cornerstone of that Temple. The physical temple in Jerusalem was but a prototype or shadow of this greater Truth revealed by the Messiah. We discovered that each of the sons of Yahuah are living Arks of the Covenant. Just as with all things previous in 6 physical covenants:

  • The Passover Lamb
  • The Levitical Priesthood
  • The Aaronic High Priesthood
  • The Temple
  • The Altar
  • The Law
  • The Ark of the Covenant
  • The Sacrifices


The Altar was transposed to the Kingdom of Yahuah in the Yahushaic Covenant. Therefore, in what way was the Altar of Yahuah transposed from physical shadow to spiritual reality?





What is the Altar of Yahuah in the body temple? The “heart and mind” is the Altar in the body temple.

The Altar of Yahuah now resides in the body temple as the “hearts and minds” of those so chosen by Yahuah as sons! It is still very much a “working altar” with the proper daily oblation (daily sacrifices) being offered up to Yahuah in those Chosen Few by Melchizedek our Eternal High Priest.

In fact, it is still in keeping and putting our faith in Passover that Yahusha (as High Priest) faithfully makes the proper sacrifices before the throne of Yahuah. Expressing our faith in Passover by keeping it is the spiritual equivalent of “sacrificing a lamb”. As we keep Passover in faith, Yahusha’s “blood” is poured out on the altar of our hearts and minds covering the death decrees in the Law that held us captive to the fear of death. We see below, Yahusha set the righteous example of keeping Passover and the significance of keeping Passover going forward in “remembrance” or “faith” in him.

We see Yahusha clearly say the Passover will find its fulfillment spiritually in the Kingdom of Yahuah and only then will Yahusha eat Passover again with us.

Luke 22

7 Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. 8 Yahusha sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover.”… 14 When the hour came, Yahusha and his apostles reclined at the table. 15 And he said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. 16 For I tell you, I will not eat it again until it (Passover) finds fulfillment in the Kingdom of Yahuah.”

17 After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, “Take this and divide it among you. 18 For I tell you I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until the Kingdom of Yahuah comes.” 19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This (Passover meal) is my body given for you; do this (keep Passover) in remembrance of me (Yahusha commands us to keep Passover in the Yahushaic Covenant and that is how we express our faith in him).” 20 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This (Passover) cup is the new covenant in my blood (the Yahushaic Covenant was consummated by blood on the Passover), which is poured out for you. 21   And I confer on you a kingdom (we are co-heirs), just as my Father conferred one on me (His Kingdom), 30 so that you may eat and drink (Passover) at my table in my kingdom (Passover is kept in the Kingdom of Yahuah) and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

The Apostle Sha’ul confirms that Passover is kept as we put our faith in the sacrifice of Yahusha thereby his blood is spread over the Altar of Yahuah (in our hearts and minds) covering our sin:

1 Corinthians 11

23 For I received from the King what I also passed on to you: Yahusha the Messiah, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, 24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This (Passover meal) is my body, which is for you; do this (keep Passover) in remembrance (faith) of me.” 25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This (Passover) cup is the new covenant (the transposition of Passover literally inaugurated the Yahushaic Covenant) in my blood; do this (keep Passover), whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” 26 For whenever (once a year as commanded by Yahuah) you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim (your faith, which is the spiritual sacrifice, in) the King’s death until he comes (and his blood is poured out over the Altar of your heart). 27 So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the King’s in an unworthy manner (eating ham on Easter for example, violating Yahuah’s command and Yahusha’s instruction to keep Passover) will be guilty of sinning (you will not have the proper sacrifice for sin offered by the eternal High Priest on Yahuah’s altar which is your heart and mind) against the body and blood of the King. 28 Everyone ought to examine themselves (purify the Altar of Yahuah) before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. 29 For those who eat and drink without discerning (that) the body of the Messiah (is the Passover Lamb not the Easter pig) eat and drink judgment on themselves (because the blood is only poured out to cover sin on the Altars of those who keep Passover)

Above, Sha’ul is talking about examining ourselves before we keep Passover. He is speaking of the physical to spiritual parallel of ritually cleansing the Altar in the Torah:

Holman Bible Dictionary http://www.studylight.org/dic/hbd/view.cgi?number=T5157

The altar for sacrifice was purified so that it would be prepared for worship (Leviticus 8:15; Ezekiel 43:26 ). The objects of gold used in the tabernacle and Temple were also pure in this sense; this would be true of the incense in Exodus 37:29. The Levites were to purify themselves for service in the tabernacle (Numbers 8:21). When that which was unclean or impure came into contact with that which was holy, danger resulted and could even lead to death. This is probably the background for the preparation made for the theophany, a manifestation of Yahuah's presence, in Exodus 19:1 and for the death of Uzzah when he was unprepared (not purified) to touch the ark of the covenant, a most holy object ( 2 Samuel 6:1-11 ). Malachi 1:11-12 contrasts the pure offerings of Gentiles with blemished offerings given by Yahuah's people; such a state necessitated purification ( Malachi 3:3-4). Purity qualified one to participate in worship, an activity central to the life of ancient Israel. Breaking that purity was a serious matter.

In the book of Hebrews, we see the Apostle Sha’ul address the reality that, instead of the Law being abolished, the Law has literally been transferred to the Kingdom of Yahuah to define the role of Melchizedek the Eternal High Priest. The main point I want to establish here is that the Law pertaining to the High Priesthood that gives authority to offer sacrifices on the Altar (the hearts/minds) on behalf of the sons of Yahuah has been transposed to define the role and to give authority to Yahusha as High Priest:

Hebrews 7:12
"for when there is a transfer (of position from Earth to Heaven or transposition) of the priestly office (of Levi to Melchizedek), out of necessity there is ALSO A TRANSFER of the LAW of the priesthood (by which the Priesthood has authority)"

And now, Yahusha as High Priest makes those sacrifices on behalf of only those whose faith is put in Passover in light of his sacrifice. That was the entire “point” of the physical portrait of Passover. It was a rehearsal designed to teach us the greater spiritual Truth found in Yahusha’s sacrifice. We are instructed not only by Yahuah in His Law to keep Passover but also by Yahusha and the Apostle Sha’ul. Passover was the beginning of the Yahushaic Covenant and was transposed to the Kingdom of Yahuah spiritually.

In keeping with transposition, the Passover shadow was pointing to Yahusha and faith in Passover is as essential today as it ever was or even more so.


We see below the description of Yahusha, the High Priest in the Order of Zadok, being called by Yahuah to assume the role of making sacrifices on behalf of men before Yahuah. As we showed earlier, those sacrifices are made on behalf of those who do this or keep Passover in remembrance of his sacrifice:

Hebrews 5 - The Perfect High Priest

1 For every high priest taken from among men (Yahusha was a man when chosen by Yahuah as heir to High Priest Yahusha III) is appointed on behalf of men in things pertaining to Yahuah (the High Priest, including Yahusha, is not Yahuah but is a mediator), in order to offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins (this is Yahusha’s eternal role, these offerings/sacrifices are defined in the Law which has been transposed to serve him in the Kingdom of Yahuah); 2 he can deal gently with the ignorant and misguided, since he himself also is beset with weakness; 3 and because of it he is obligated to offer sacrifices for sins, as for the people, so also for himself. 4 And no one takes the honor to himself, but receives it when he is called by Yahuah, even as Aaron was. 5 So also (like every human High Priest) Yahusha did not glorify himself so as to become a high priest (he was chosen by blood in the Order of Zadok being the heir to Yahusha III, he is the High Zadok or Melchizedek), but He who said to Him



So now Yahusha is offering the daily oblation (sacrifice) for sin on the Altar of Yahuah and offers his slain body as the final Passover Sacrifice. This is performed for those who put their faith in and keep Passover as he commanded.  The “Altar” has not disappeared as many assume, and in error claim there are currently no daily sacrifices being made. The Altar and the sacrifices being made on it, are still alive and very active. It has simply been transposed to its final spiritual state in the Kingdom of Yahuah along with Passover.

We see a “picture” of this spiritual reality in Revelation as Yahusha is seen as the Passover Lamb that had been slain in on the Altar of Yahuah in Revelation 5.

Revelation 5

6 Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne… 11 “Worthy is the (spotless) Lamb, who was slain (on Passover), to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!”

So Yahusha, the final Passover Lamb, is offering his spiritual body as THE sacrifice for sin before the throne of Yahuah continually (daily oblation) now in the Kingdom of Yahuah. This sin offering is made effectual only for those who obey Yahuah and Yahusha’s command to keep Passover in light of and expressing faith in his sacrifice. This Altar is not the physical altar used by the physical priesthood of Aaron and Levi. The Altar in the Kingdom of Yahuah is intimately connected spiritually throughout the Temple of Yahuah, which has been transposed, and now is the sum total of the sons of Yahuah!

Isaiah gives us a glimpse of this very truth. We learn that in the Spiritual Kingdom of Yahuah, we will turn our eyes directly to the Holy One of Israel not “physical altars made with our hands and fingers”:

Isaiah 17

In that day (in the future Kingdom of Yahuah) people will look to their Maker and turn their eyes to Yahuah, the Holy One of Israel. 8 They will not look to the (physical) altars, the (altars made with the) work of their hands…

This spiritual Truth concerning the True Altar of Yahuah was the reason why Yahuah commanded the physical altar was not to be made of “stone” cut by human hands but only by stones cut by Yahuah:

Exodus 20:25

'If you make an altar of stones for me, do not build it with cut stones, for you will defile it if you use a tool on it.'

Why such restrictions on the construction of the physical altar? Because the physical altar was pointing to the reality that the physical altar was a shadow picture of the human heart and mind which was not made by man but by Yahuah Himself. Our hearts and minds are spiritual parallels of those stones uncut by human hands…  the physical stones in the physical altar were a physical to spiritual parallel designed to teach us this fact:

I Peter 2:5

You also, as living stones, are being built up as a spiritual house…

We have established the reality of the Temple and Altar in the true Spiritual realm where the Kingdom of Yahuah exists and how this physical world around us was designed as a teaching tool. Let us examine now the sacrifices defined by the Law. Have they been “abolished” or are they being made “daily” by the Eternal High Priest Melchizedek exactly as defined in the Law?



The sacrifices and burnt-offerings were appointed to represent (physical to spiritual parallels) the offering-up of our affections to Yahuah. The animals offered by the physical shadow, whether lamb, or ram, or goat, or bullock, were the types of principles in the mind of the worshipper. We offer these in loving devotion to Yahuah; they are spiritually represented by the physical fire of the offering. Yahuah’s acceptance of those offerings was declared by the words so often used respecting the different sacrifices. "It is an offering made by fire, of a sweet aroma unto Yahuah."-·Leviticus 3:5.

Animal sacrifices were always intended (as all things physical) as a teaching tool whereby we can come to an understanding of spiritual things i.e. physical to spiritual parallels. What Yahuah was teaching us in these physical examples is what He truly desires spiritually:

Psalm 40:6-8

6 (Physical) Sacrifice and meal offering You have not desired; My ears You have opened; (Physical) Burnt offering and (Physical) sin offering You have not required. 7 Then I said, “Behold, I come; In the scroll of the book it is written of me. 8 I delight to do Your will, O my Elohim; Your Law is within my heart.”

Transposition of all things is the “key” to understanding this physical world in which we live.

The Apostle Sha’ul taught the transposition of the Law as it related to physical sacrifices in the Yahushaic Covenant:

Hebrews 10

1 For the Law, since it has only a shadow of the good things to come and not the very form of things (the very form of things is in the spirit not physical), can never, by the same (physical) sacrifices which they offer continually year by year, make perfect those who draw near. 2 Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have had consciousness of sins? 3 But in those (physical) sacrifices there is a reminder of sins year by year. 4 For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. 5 Therefore, when He comes into the world, He says,


Psalm 40:6-8

Sacrifice and offering You have not desired, But a body You have prepared for Me; 6 In whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have taken no pleasure. 7 Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come (In the scroll of the book it is written of Me) To do Your will, O Elohim.’”


8 After saying above, “Sacrifices and offerings and whole burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You have not desired, nor have You taken pleasure in them” (which are offered physically according to the Law until Yahusha came), 9 then He said, “Behold, I have come to do Your will.” He (Yahusha) takes away (the responsibility to offer physical sacrifices from) the first in order (of the Levitical Priests) to establish (the spiritual sacrifices in) the second (order of the Priesthood of Melchizedek). 10 By this will we have been sanctified through the (daily) offering of the body of the Messiah Yahusha (who was sacrificed) once for all (as The Passover Lamb). 11 Every priest (of Levi) stands daily ministering and offering time after time the same (physical) sacrifices, which can never take away sins; 12 but He (Yahusha as Melchizedek the Spiritual High Priest), having offered one (spiritual) sacrifice for sins for all time (as he stands before the spiritual Altar of Yahuah daily or continually as a Lamb that has been slaughtered), sat down at the right hand of Yahuah, 13 waiting from that time onward until His enemies be made a footstool for His feet. 14 For by one offering He has perfected for all time those who are sanctified (because he lives eternally offering his body as the daily sacrifice before Yahuah). 15 And the Holy Spirit also testifies to us; for after saying,


16 This is the covenant that I will make with them
After those days, says Yahuah:
I will put My laws upon their heart,
And on their mind I will write them,”

He then says,

17 And their sins and their lawless deeds
I will remember no more.”


18 Now where there is forgiveness of these things, there is no longer any (physical) offering for sin (because the sacrificed body of Yahusha is ever before the Throne of Yahuah).


Revelation 5:6

Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne

A New and Living Way

19 Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Yahusha, 20 by a new and living way which He inaugurated for us through the veil, that is, His flesh, 21 and since we have a great priest over the house of Yahuah (offering the spiritual sacrifices prescribed by the Law on our behalf), 22 let us draw near with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith (in the Passover), having our hearts (the Altar of Yahuah) sprinkled clean (by the blood of the Passover Lamb when we express our faith by keeping Passover in remembrance of him until he comes again) from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure (living) water (Mikveh). 23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope (as we keep Passover in remembrance of Yahusha) without wavering, for He who promised (that the Passover Lamb covers the death decrees in the Law) is faithful (to set us free from bondage to the threat of death); 24 and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and (to do) good deeds (of the Law, because now we have been set free from the Law of Sin and Death and live by the Law of the Spirit of Life)


The Apostle Sha’ul describes the “change” that occurred in both the physical law and physical priesthoods. Sha’ul used the Greek word “metathesis” in Hebrews 7:12 when explaining how the Law and the Priesthood of Levi defined by the Mosaic Covenantchanged” in the Yahushaic Covenant. Metathesis is Strong’s 3331 and means "transferred to Heaven"... transposition.



from metatithemi 3346; transposition, i.e. transferal (to heaven), disestablishment (of a law from physical to spiritual):--change to, removing, translation.


Hebrews 7:12

For when the priesthood is changed, of necessity there takes place a change of law also.

The word “change” above means “transferred to heaven” so the proper translation is:

Hebrews 7:12

For when the (physical) priesthood (of Aaron/Levi) is transferred to heaven (to Melchizedek), of necessity (because the Law is what gives the authority to make sacrifices) there takes place a transposition of the Law (to heaven to serve Yahusha now as High Priest) also.

It is not my intention in this chapter to teach on all the various sacrifices and what they represent. Every section in this book should really be developed fully into a book of its own. Again, this book is meant more as Cliff Notes. In this book series, we will eventually look at the most “abominable” sacrifice that could be made. Before we can identify that “abominable” sacrifice we must first establish the “true” sacrifice that this “abominable” sacrifice replaces on the altar of our hearts and minds in the Body Temple. That true sacrifice is Passover.


As we see below, the sacrifice of Passover as well as the keeping of Passover wasn’t “abolished” by the Messiah; it too was transposed over to Yahusha as “the Passover Lamb of Yahuah”. The sacrifice of the Passover Lamb is only effective now for those who have the blood of THAT sacrifice on their hearts (Altars).

We renew that “sacrifice” annually in loving obedience in keeping Passover in light of Yahusha’s sacrifice. “Easter” is not “Passover” as we will soon realize clearly later in this book series. Easter is not an Appointed Time of Yahuah, it is not a sacred assembly of Yahuah’s, it is not the day on which the Messiah’s sacrifice was made nor was it his resurrection day.

There is no commandment for Easter. It is a pagan sacrifice of a pig and a pagan holy day originating not in the Bible but in Babylon.  

ONLY, and I cannot stress this enough, ONLY those who have properly put their faith in Passover and express that faith in their actions by keeping Passover (believe Yahusha was that Lamb) as commanded by Yahuah and instructed by Yahusha and taught by his disciples are covered by the Blood of the Lamb.

The keeping of Passover to be saved from death was established clearly by the original Passover when Isaac was spared by a substitutionary ram (a male lamb). Then again in Egypt when the Angel of Death “passed over” those who had the blood of the lamb on their doorposts.

Yahusha made this clear as he kept Passover the day he died. John the Baptist made this point crystal clear when he saw Yahusha at his Mikveh and declared “Behold! The Passover Lamb of Yahuah”. The Apostle Sha’ul makes this point clear instructing us in “how” to keep Passover, Peter stressed it, John the Revelator showed us this in the Spirit; 

Passover is truly the scarlet thread (blood) of redemption running from cover to cover in the Word of Yahuah beginning with ‘the lamb being slaughtered before the foundation of the world… in the Heavenly Scroll


Luke 22:19

19 And when He had taken some bread and given thanks (at Passover), He broke it and gave it to them, saying, "This (Passover Dinner) is My body (Passover Lamb) which is given (sacrificed) for you; do this (keep Passover) in remembrance of Me."


John 1:29

"Behold the (Passover) Lamb of Yahuah, which taketh away the sin of the world."


John 1:36

"and he looked at Yahusha as He walked, and said, "Behold, the (Passover) Lamb of Yahuah!"


1 Corinthians 5: 7-8

"Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast--as you really are. For the Messiah, our Passover Lamb has been sacrificed. Therefore let us keep the Festival (of Passover/Unleavened Bread), not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with bread without yeast, the bread of sincerity and truth."


1 Peter 1: 18-25

"For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of the Messiah, a (Passover) lamb without blemish or defect”


Revelation 5:6

"Then I saw a (Passover) Lamb, looking as if it had been slain.


Revelation 5:12

"In a loud voice they sang: "Worthy is the (Passover) Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!".


Revelation 5:13

"Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing: "To him who sits on the throne and to the (Passover) Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!"

So we see the “proper” sacrifice for sin on the Altar of Yahuah is the Passover Lamb of Yahuah, the Messiah Yahusha. We are to keep and put our faith in Passover each year as we “do this” in remembrance of the Messiah’s sacrifice. Keeping Passover is our spiritual sacrifice to Yahuah and in doing so, we are “covered by the Blood of the Lamb” and will be Passed Over the Second Death. This is the story of salvation told in the Bible.

Today, however, Christianity no longer puts their faith in Passover but rather “Easter”. We will cover this abomination in detail later in Chapter 14 as we define the Abomination of Desolation. In this chapter I am simply demonstrating the transposition of physical sacrifices defined in the Law (now “written on our hearts”) and the transposition of His Altar. In doing so I demonstrate that the TRUE sacrifice for sin is keeping Passover. Not “Easter”.



The physical sacrifices defined in the Law are physical to spiritual parallels of true Spiritual sacrifices to Yahuah. These true sacrifices in the spiritual realm are our affections toward Yahuah expressed through our actions (faith without works is dead faith). This is not a new concept limited to the New Testament. King David proclaimed this reality in Psalms; clearly illustrating the spiritual Truth later to be revealed in the Yahushaic Covenant. The true Altar of Yahuah is in the heart and mind of the Body Temple and TRUE sacrifices are made on that altar not a physical one:

Psalms 51:17

"The (true) sacrifices of Yahuah are a broken spirit (Spiritual); (offered on) a broken and a contrite heart (the true Altar), 0 Yahuah, thou wilt not despise.

The Apostle Sha’ul in his letter to the Roman Church, again, illustrates this spiritual truth concerning true sacrifices in the Spiritual Kingdom of Yahuah:

Romans 12:1

"I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of Yahuah, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to Yahuah, which is your spiritual worship."

It is in the keeping of Passover that we express our faith in the Passover Lamb and keep the memory of Yahusha’s sacrifice alive. That is the spiritual equivalent of “sacrificing the Passover Lamb and pouring the blood of the Lamb over the Altar of Yahuah” which is our hearts/minds. Many say they have “faith in the blood of the Lamb” and then keep Easter. True faith in the blood of the Lamb is expressed by “works” of the Law and Yahuah and Yahusha and Sha’ul all commanded we keep Passover!

James 2:18

But someone may well say, "You have faith (alone) and (condemn me because) I have works (trying to work my way to heaven legalistically); show me your faith without the works, and I will show you my faith by my works."

We cannot “say” we have faith in Yahusha and then not keep Passover as Yahusha commanded. That is dead faith and if we don’t keep Passover then our faith in the Passover Lamb is DEAD and your sin is not covered as we did not offer the spiritual sacrifice required. If we don’t express our faith by our works of keeping the Passover, the blood of the Passover Lamb is not poured out over the Altar of Yahuah on our behalf. Everyone (even demons) know Yahusha is the Passover Lamb, but how many express that faith in Yahusha by being obedient to his command to keep Passover? Faith expressed through actions of obedience makes us perfect.

We see that we are justified not by faith alone, but by faith combined with works:

James 2:14-26

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. 18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that there is one Elohim. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed Yahuah, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of Yahuah. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only. 25 Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way? 26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

In Chapter 12 I will fully establish the reality of the Law in the Kingdom of Yahuah.
