Introduction to “The Prophecy of Balaam”
I believe the Lord did this! In the first part of the new year of 2018 I was prompted by the Lord to look deeper into an old prophecy, “The Prophecy of Balaam”. This prophecy had caught my attention because it was apparent that Balaam, a sorcerer, a false prophet and diviner; had received a true astounding prophecy from the Lord. Furthermore, this prophecy was of such significance, even to this day we are still awaiting the final fulfillment of this prophecy. I believe I was led by the Lord to carefully study the details of this prophecy, because I believed there was an important message to the people of God, recorded by Moses, the words of Balaam, as he attempted to curse the children of Israel. This happened thousands of years ago as Israel, because of their unbelief, were close to the end of the forty years of wandering in the wilderness, coming to a time of entering into a land of promise, flowing with milk and honey.
The Prophecy of Balaam is recorded in scriptures from Numbers 22 – 25, the story plays out even to ch. 31, where Balaam is killed by the sword in a battle with the Israelites.
