“Error of Balaam - 24"

Blessings folk!

Balaam is speaking forth an oracle.
He is telling Balak what the people of the Lord would do to his people.

Num 24:17

“I see him, but not now;
I behold him, but not near;
A star shall come forth from Jacob,
A scepter shall rise from Israel,
And shall crush through the forehead of Moab,
And tear down all the sons of Sheth.

Balaam saw someone.
Someone was coming, but not then.

Balaam could behold him, but he was not near.

Balaam describes him as..

  • “a star…come forth from Jacob”
  • “a scepter…from Israel

Balaam then tells what this one would do.

He will crush through the forehead of Moab.
He will tear down the sons of Sheth.

Wonder who this is?

It is a prophecy of Jesus.

Balaam, the enigmatic one, saw the glory of the Lord Jesus yet to come.

There is more…as we will see…
