“Error of Balaam -12, Steaks”

“Error of Balaam -12, Steaks”

Blessings folk!

Balaam had met with Balak.

He now goes with Balak.

Read what happens next…

Num 22:39-41

And Balaam went with Balak, and they came to Kiriath-huzoth.

Balak sacrificed oxen and sheep, and sent some to Balaam and the leaders who were with him.

Then it came about in the morning that Balak took Balaam and brought him up to the high places of Baal, and he saw from there a portion of the people.

Balak offers sacrifice of oxen and sheep…to the gods he worshipped…Baal, et al.

Balak than sent some of the of the sacrifice to Balaam and the leaders with him.

Apparently Balaam received this steak/mutton and ate?

By doing so, Balaam was obliquely participating in the sacrifice.

The next morning, Balak and Balaam went up to the high places of Baal - a primary god - to see a portion of the people that Balak desired to be cursed.

Balaam slowly was going step by step more into the “camp of Baal”.

Beware, this is a strategy of the evil one…to slowly lead into deception those who do not keep their eyes upon the Lord.
