Before Jesus came, God dwelt with the people first in a Tabernacle (tent) and then in the Temple. The Temple was God's house on earth.

2Ch 7:1-3 Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the house. (2) And the priests could not enter into the house of the LORD, because the glory of the LORD had filled the LORD'S house. (3) And when all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the LORD upon the house, they bowed themselves with their faces to the ground upon the pavement, and worshipped, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

Because it was God's house, He demanded that worship could only take place there. Worshiping in "high places" was the first act of rebellion against God after the Temple was built. They started out worshiping the one true God in the little temples they as constructed in the high places but soon converted them to worshiping other gods.

The temple was a picture of Jesus Christ. There is only one way today to worship God, and that is through Jesus Christ.

Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Why was sacrificing in high places bad in the eyes of the Lord? Seems this was a sin evil the Kings did right by the eyes of the Lord? I saw the comment before me that it is explained in Chronicles. I guess I'll just have to wait.
