Is a woman allowed going to the altar when she is in her menstruation?

The word of God which shows that a woman must be abandoned when she is in her menstruation if from

Leviticus 15:19-33

19 And if a woman have an issue, and her issue in her flesh be blood, she shall be put apart seven days: and whosoever toucheth her shall be unclean until the even.

20 And every thing that she lieth upon in her separation shall be unclean: every thing also that she sitteth upon shall be unclean.

21 And whosoever toucheth her bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.

22 And whosoever toucheth any thing that she sat upon shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.

23 And if it be on her bed, or on any thing whereon she sitteth, when he toucheth it, he shall be unclean until the even.

24 And if any man lie with her at all, and her flowers be upon him, he shall be unclean seven days; and all the bed whereon he lieth shall be unclean.

25 And if a woman have an issue of her blood many days out of the time of her separation, or if it run beyond the time of her separation; all the days of the issue of her uncleanness shall be as the days of her separation: she shall be unclean.

26 Every bed whereon she lieth all the days of her issue shall be unto her as the bed of her separation: and whatsoever she sitteth upon shall be unclean, as the uncleanness of her separation.

27 And whosoever toucheth those things shall be unclean, and shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.

28 But if she be cleansed of her issue, then she shall number to herself seven days, and after that she shall be clean.

29 And on the eighth day she shall take unto her two turtles, or two young pigeons, and bring them unto the priest, to the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

30 And the priest shall offer the one for a sin offering, and the other for a burnt offering; and the priest shall make an atonement for her before the LORD for the issue of her uncleanness.

31 Thus shall ye separate the children of Israel from their uncleanness; that they die not in their uncleanness, when they defile my tabernacle that is among them.

32 This is the law of him that hath an issue, and of him whose seed goeth from him, and is defiled therewith;

33 And of her that is sick of her flowers, and of him that hath an issue, of the man, and of the woman, and of him that lieth with her that is unclean.

Remember we have to know that not everything that took place on Old Testament is not the must to take place too in New Testament, Other things were just as a symbol in order to present the spiritual message to the New Testament.

For example for the issue of food Jesus came and correct by saying what enters a person doesn’t make a person unclean but from what’s comes out from a person because it comes from the heart, that’s why in anyways food doesn’t make a person to do mistakes before God if the food will be eaten by gratitude. But in the past animals who didn’t ruminate they were known as unclean,Which currently revealed in spiritual that people who chew spiritual food which they have been fed, they don’t have time to meditate on what they have been taught or what God has done for them or to work on the things which they have been taught.

Even in women issue when they are in menstruation normally the blood as blood doesn’t have a problem but ask yourself why that blood which comes out from reproductive organs seems to be unclean. This reveal that the dirt that produced due to adultery known as gross uncleanness to the person.

That’s why the bible tells us and the bed undefiled…(Hebrews 13:4)

That’s why we have to keep our body far from fornication.

But this doesn’t mean that bleeding make you unclean because that is automatically issue and it is not planned by a women. So it doesn’t come from the spirit to make one unclean. God use such example to show that things are much worse which comes from committing adultery . So when a women is bleeding that doesn’t make her to do not serve on altar or pray to God.

What she supposed to do is to make herself and her environment clean.

God bless you.
