מזבח (mizbeah), literally means "place of slaughter” a sacrificial
sacrifice. This is the same word used for altar within the Bible.
The masculine noun מזבח (mizbeah) literally means "place of זבח
If we consider the second part of the word for altar, we get a
better understanding in reference to the purpose of a place of
זבח (zebah), means a sacrifice or the act of sacrificing.
But what is the significance of this word for us.?

Judges 6:6 -10 Israel was brought very low because of
Midian; and the children of Israel cried to Yahweh.When
the children of Israel cried to Yahweh because of
Midian,Yahweh sent a prophet to the children of Israel;
and he said to them, “Thus says Yahweh, the God of Israel,
‘I brought you up from Egypt, and brought you out of the
house of bondage; and I delivered you out of the hand of
the Egyptians, and out of the hand of all who oppressed
you, and drove them out from before you, and gave you
their land; and I said to you, “I am Yahweh your God;
you shall not fear the gods of the Amorites, in whose land
you dwell.” But you have not listened to my

The disobedience to the covenant that God
made with Israel was the only cause of their
trouble. But God send a messenger to help
Israel to overcome the enemy, Gideon was the
instrument God intended to use.
What disobedience caused the wrath
of God upon Israel, when we read in
verse 6 that the children of Israel
cried unto Yahweh. They knew God,
they cried out unto Him, so what stood
against them?

Judges 6:25-26 That same night, Yahweh said to
him, “Take your father’s bull, even the second
bull seven years old, and throw down the altar
of Baal that your father has, and cut down
the Asherah that is by it; and build an altar
to Yahweh your God on the top of this
stronghold, in an orderly way, and take the
second bull, and offer a burnt offering with the
wood of the Asherah which you shall cut down.”

We have been asked, why do we struggle?
The question we should however ask, is there
anything that stand against us in relation to the
covenant agreement we have with God.
Like altars that stand against us before the throne
of God, altars that we allow, altars that sacrifice to
idols as with Gideon’s father’s house.

The obvious answer would
be no!
We would not allow such
an altar to be erected.

Then Consider this :
Dhabīḥah (or zabiha, Arabic: ذَبِیْحَة dhabīḥah IPA: [ðæˈbiːħɐ], 'slaughter'(noun))
is, in Islamic law, the prescribed method of ritual slaughter of all lawful halal
animals (goats, sheep, cows, chicken) excluding locusts, fish, and most sea-life. Unlawful
animals like pigs, dogs, lions, bears, etc. are not allowed to be slaughtered or zabihah. This
method of slaughtering lawful animals has several conditions to be fulfilled. The
butcher must be Muslim, the name of God or "In the name of God" (Bismillah)
must be called by the butcher upon slaughter of each halal animal separately,
and it should consist of a swift, deep incision with a very sharp knife on the throat,
cutting the wind pipe, jugular veins and carotid arteries of both sides but leaving the
spinal cord intact.[1]
The precise details of the slaughtering method arise from Islamic tradition
educated by Muhammad, himself. It is used to comply with the conditions stated
in the Quran:

Altars in South Africa
A lot of the abattoirs in South Africa is currently
Halal certified, meaning that the animals are ritually
sacrificed in compliance with the Islamic law.
This is what God told Gideon that stood against
them and thus God allowed the Median invasion.
Let’s consider the word “halal”

Based upon what God said to Gideon, and in reference to the fact that we have abattoirs
that are halal compliant in a “Christian” country, lets look at the word halal.
The Muslim meaning of the word halal when used as a religious term, means
“permissible” , something a Muslim can do, the opposite of haram “impermissible” or
something a Muslim cannot do.
The Hebrew reference to the same word chalal is to profane oneself, defile oneself, pollute
If we consider that the two religions oppose one another, it may be considered that what is
permissible for a Muslim based on his religion, and consequent sacrifice is not permissible
to the other religion.
If God ordained that we should not eat food offered to an idol, we must acknowledge that
to the believers of that idol, the food would be permissible, but to the believers in the one
true God, and Father of Jesus Christ, that food would be impermissible.
Let us consider what the Bible say about food offered to idols.

Acts 15:28-29 For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay no
greater burden on you than these necessary things: that you abstain from
things sacrificed to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from
sexual immorality, from which if you keep yourselves, it will be well with
you. Farewell.
Rev 2:14 But I have a few things against you, because you have there some
who hold the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to throw a stumbling
block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and
to commit sexual immorality.
Rev 2:20 But I have this against you, that you tolerate your d woman,
Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess. She teaches and seduces my servants
to commit sexual immorality, and to eat things sacrificed to idols.

If then halal means to offer a sacrifice to
the god of the Muslims, and we partake in
the food offered to idols, we are in
disagreement with the covenant God made
with us through His Son Jesus Christ.
For the same Jesus that said, if you love me,
you will obey me, said in Revelation that He
have it against us that we taught to eat
food offered to idols.

Consider for yourself.
May the Lord bless you with understanding in love.
There is a testimony of a man who was part of a
abattoir who was halal compliant. His testimony is
that God showed him the error of his way to be
unequally yoked.

Consider :
In a love based relationship that is truly from within, the idea is to give oneself holy, not only give within the acceptable norm, but to give more than acceptable norm. When Jesus said “if you love Me you will obey Me’. I believe He asked unconditional obedience because we love Him. So when I read in Revelation 2:14 and verse 20 that Jesus hold it against the church that they eat and teach to eat food offered to idols I did not even want to consider to defend my eating of food offered to idols, I just wanted to say I do not want to eat it because the one I love said He have it against us. If you feel like me, please read "Halal, part of Sharia Law, the Physical Counterpart of the Mark of the Beast" by http://counterjihadreport.com

  • The emblem represents the Cross embracing a person (the bride of Christ), for it is because of God's love for all of us that Jesus died on the Cross so that everyone who believes in Him will inherit the promise of eternal life (to know God and His Son Jesus Christ-John 17:3). The emblem is not distinguished easily, since it is a prophetic action (the lifting of the veil) for it is only in the recreated life and embracing arms of Jesus Christ that we can see and truly be set free.
