What are the high places in the Bible?

Bible Question:

I was wondering just what were the “high places” which caused so much distress among the writers of Deuteronomy History? How many were there and where were they located? Why were they characterized as being “ “high” ”? What went on there and who participated? How were these organized and who organized them? But most importantly, why were they organized and what went on at them, so inimical to the followers of Yahweh?

Bible Answer:

And he sacrificed and burned incense on the high places, on the hills, and under every green tree. (NASB) 2 Chronicles 28:4

Some of the best-known high places are visible today such as those at Gezer and Petra. It was there that gods who were “no gods” were worshipped – the gods of stone, trees and metal (Numbers 33:52). We do not know how many high places existed in Canaan, but it is probably safe to assume there was at least one for each nation. Joshua 12:7-24 lists thirty-one nations that Israel defeated when they entered the land. Joshua 13:2-6 says that Israel had left five nations in the land (Philistines, Canaanites, Sidonians, Gebalites and all Lebanon). That makes a total of thirty-six nations in the land of Canaan. We do not know for sure how many high places existed or where they were all located.

The high places were places of religious worship. Five religious activities occurred here: a) animal sacrifices (1 Kings 3:2), b) prostitution (Jeremiah 3:2), c) the burning of incense (1 Kings 3:3), d) daughters walking through fire (Jeremiah 32:35), and e) human sacrifices (2 Kings 23:20, Jer. 7:31). It appears that there were sacred pillars at the high places (2 Kings 17:8-12). These appear to be carved pillars depicting the female goddess of fertility and male deities. It appears that each high place had priests (Num. 22:41). The “gods” that were worshipped at the “high places” included Baal (Numbers 22:41), Asherah (2 Kings 21:3), Asherim (2 Chronicles 17:6), Topheth (Jer. 7:31), and the gods of the sun, the moon, the constellations, and all the host of heaven (2 Kings 23:5, 2 Chronicles 33:3). The gods at the “high places” were depicted as carved and molten images (2 Chronicles 34:3).


Why did they use high places for worship? Were they attempting to get closer to their god? Was there a psychological appeal to being up high? Was there a spiritual experience? Sexual experiences were part of worship. Today people seek spiritual highs. It is interesting that God’s tabernacle in the wilderness was in the plain and not on a high place. God’s concept of worship is not “sexual experiences,” burning our children or making our children walk through fire. God calls us to love Him, seek Him and to know Him.

It is interesting how often Christians go to a seminar or to camp and then come home with a religious high, but two weeks later it is gone. We wonder why. The answer is that back at home we are spending less time focused on God. True fulfillment is an emotional love for God that captures our whole person (Matthew 22:36-39) and results in “I love you, God” and obedience (Romans 12:1-2).

Destroying “the High Places” – Dealing with Idolatry

There will be a temple that will be built on the temple mount and it may or may not stand because when the temple is built just before the arrival of Jesus Christ. It will built in the spirit of truth, in the guidance of the Holy Spirit. I say this because God says he hates highs place through the old and new testaments of the Bible.

Here are two video that might shad light on where the temple will really be. The first video is called, “The Holiest Place On Earth Part 1 – The Naked Archaeologist 121 – Holy Hot Spot”:

Here is video number two:

Are You Your Own Worst Enemy?

I would start out by saying what Jesus Christ would want us to do? Pray and how should we pray? The Lord’s Prayer, and how often should we pray? Continually. Why do we use the Lord’s Prayer and not some other? The Lord’s Prayer covers all the areas that is important for our spiritual being.

When we pray the Lords prayer we ask to forgive our enemies, let God’s will be done, the kingdom to come. By praying the Lord’s prayer we let go of many thoughts we have in our head and give them back to God so we can have things revealed to us.

We must overcome resentment in our heart, and in a past video I shared about Dr. Jordan Peterson talks about how resentment can destroy us and we become our own very worst enemy and Jordan goes on to say that we must talk to people what we have resentment toward to overcome that resentment. Other people who lived in the past who talked about this is Jesus Christ and someone who is living now who talks about this daily is Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson.

Women are looking for a fathers love

Women are looking for a fathers love. Its important that men understand women are looking for a fathers love and not get screwed. Woman more than anything are looking for a strong spiritual man to lead the future (the family). I think in a video Jesse Lee Peterson shares with us on his youtube channel he has been working toward and brings everything to a point of how young women are being hurt by men that are just looking to get laid instead of doing right and being in christ and setting a good example of a strong man. We must be in Christ, hate no one, love all, forgave thoses we resent, love what is right and support people who are walking with God.

Women need their fathers in their lives to be strong man to be good examples and not BETA men or weak examples of what a man should be. Its important that a man leads the way as Christ leads men, we as man need to fellow Jesus Christ to keep society from going to HELL.

Every day you can see or people watch how some men and women our living in hell without the right spiritual order then you will continue your hellish way according to 2 Peter. You can also find it in Romans. God will give you over to a reprobate mind.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient. – Romans 1:28 (KJV)

In Romans 1, Paul refers to something known as a reprobate mind. If you’re not familiar with the term reprobate, the literal definition in the Greek is failing to pass the test, unapproved, counterfeit.

How God Commands Us To Forgive Those Who We Have Resentment Toward.

All of us are tested everyday by our personal internal struggle coming from resentment of what happened earlier in our lives as children typically what our mother did to us, telling how our fathers were not good enough or driving us away from our fathers when we were children. We most go to the people that we have resentment against and forgive them. By forgiving our mothers or whoever we have resentment against, God will forgive us and we can return to the heavenly Father through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

It was said if you don’t love everyone then you love no one. People today live like the Old Testament people did. We must forgive and love everyone as God Commanded us to do according to Matthew 22:34-40.
