“Error of Balaam - 23”

“Error of Balaam - 23”

Blessings folk!

Balaam was about to leave.
He had spoke the blessing of the Lord.

Balak was furious.

I suspect Balaam was trying to assuage Balak’s anger…and get a reward?
Balaam told Balak that he would now “advise” him of the future…

Num 24:14-16

“And now, behold, I am going to my people; come,
and I will advise you what this people will do to your people in the days to come.”

He took up his discourse and said,
“The oracle of Balaam the son of Beor,
And the oracle of the man whose eye is opened,

The oracle of him who hears the words of God,
And knows the knowledge of the Most High,
Who sees the vision of the Almighty,
Falling down, yet having his eyes uncovered.

Note what we learn about Balaam…

  • Son of Beer
  • Spoke oracle
  • Has eye opened
  • Hears the Words of God
  • Knows the knowledge of the Most High
  • Sees the Vision of the Almighty
  • Falling down, yet having his eyes uncovered

Think on that.
Hears words of God.
Sees visions of the Almighty.
Knows the knowledge of the Most High.

Yet, he was still distracted by money and honor.
