Another profound passage from the Book of Numbers. In this chapter we have Balak and Balaam trying to affect their will upon the Nation of Israel. However, Balaam can only speak what he's permitted. Instead of speaking curses, he speaks blessings.
From this preacher's perspective, the most amazing part is verse 21. Prophetically, he sees Israel from God's perspective... through grace and through the unmerited work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
We will see:
1. Balak and Balaam's Faulty View of God 2. God's Response to their Faulty Views 3. God Speaks through Balaam's Mouth
