Balaam
« on: October 02, 2006, 11:15:15 PM »

    Hi Ray,
     
    This is your sister Rene' from Virginia.  Once again, I wanted to tell you how very blessed I feel to have been able to attend the Bible Conference in Mobile.  The spiritual food and fellowship was incredible!  I feel much love and affection for all of you.
     
    Question:  In the book of Numbers, chapters 22-24, the story of Balaam and Balak, I am wondering who Balaam represents.  In chapter 24, vs. 2, it states that "...the spirit of God came upon him.  Vs. 3 states "...The utterance of the man whose eyes are opened,....Who falls down, with eyes wide open."
     
    I hope this isn't too much to ask in an email.
     
    Love, peace and grace,
    Rene'

     
    Dear Rene:
     
    Good to hear from you.
    Balaam obviously represents all prophets who desire worldly goods over teaching the truths of God.  That is why were are warned of Balaam several times in the New Testament.  The doctrine of Balaam is to lead God's people astray into idolatry and spiritual fornication, all the while linng their own pockets.  And don't think that Balaam was unique in that he knew some of God's truths, but preferred to teach lies for gain.  I have always marveled at the statement of Nichodemus:
     
    "There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, A RULER of the Jews:  The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto Him, Rabbi, WE KNOW [that is, 'we RULERS of the Jews,' K-N-O-W....] that You are a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that You do, except God be with Him" (John 3:1-2).
     
    And just as sure, many of the rulers of the Chrch today, KNOW what God's word teaches on such subjects as immortal soul, eternal hell, etc., but they will not teach or acknowledge these truths to those they consider to be THE DUMB SHEEP.  There are many Balaam's in the Church today--many antichrists.
    God be with you,
    Ray
