Jesus, Our Horn Of Salvation

I was reading about the horns of the altar when Holy Spirit lead me to Exodus and 1Kings. As I began to read about these horns, I began to see Jesus.

What’s pretty exciting about this is that when Jesus called me into ministry, in an open eyed Vision, I was at the Brazen Altar, and the coal was touched to my lips.

“And thou shalt take the blood of the bullock, and put it upon the horns of the altar with thy finger, and pour all the blood beside the bottom of the altar.” Exodus 29:13 KJV

The horns of the altar are on the four corners.

Exodus 27:1-2 KJV says this,

‘And thou shalt make an altar of shittim wood, five cubits long , and five cubits broad; the altar shall be foursquare and the height thereof: shall be three cubits. And thou shall make the horns of it upon the four corners thereof: his horns shall be of the same: and thou shalt overlay it with brass.”

These things were actually done by the priests. The priests at this time in biblical history were Aaron and his sons. What they were actually doing was consecrating themselves. Now, moving briefly forward to the New Testament, in the Book of Hebrews, in the new covenant, all born again believers are priests with Jesus being our high priest in the Order of Melchizedek, but I will save that for another post.

The horns of the altar. So what are they and what do they represent? Obviously they are very important for God to tell the priest to put the blood of the sacrifice on them.

In 1Kings, the Word of God tells us this story about the horns of the altar.

Mercy Found At The Horns Of The Altar

In this story in 1Kings, chapter one, there is a confict between two brothers. The sons of king David, Solomon and Adonijah and who would be the next King of Israel after their father, King David dies.

“And moreover the king’s servants came to bless our lord king David, saying God make the name of Solomon better than thy name, and make his throne greater than thy throne, and the king bowed himself upon the bed. And also thus said the king, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, which hath given one to sit on my throne this day, mine eyes even seeing it. And all the guests that were with Adonijah were afraid, and rose up, and went every man his way. And Adonijah feared because of Solomon, and arose, and went, and caught hold on the horns of the altar.” 1Kings 1:47-50 KJV

The ending is of course king Solomon showed his brother mercy.

“So king Solomon sent, and they brought him down from the altar. And he came and bowed himself to king Solomon: and Solomon said unto him, Go to thine house.” 1Kings 1:53 KJV

In the case of Adonijah, he was wanting a safe place. His brother, king Solomon, granted him that safe place.

In the days of king David, Solomon and Adonijah, they had God, but Jesus had not come into the world yet. When that did happen, Jesus became the one to go to for mercy. There was an exchange that happened the day when Jesus said “It Is Finished”, then that veil was torn from top to bottom, thus removing that separation and now all have face-to-face access. If you don’t know Jesus. Pick up a copy of The Gospel. I recommend the KJV or NKJV.
