Renegade Prophet

The commencement of apocalypse occasions from various predictions of the sacred texts are regularly viewed as the space of prophets, for example, Daniel and John. Aside from the way that these men are viewed as motivated workers of God, their dedication as individual adherents has supported the certainty of their listeners. In this way, it persuades that the Lord just talks through individuals who are dedicated to Him. Nonetheless, the scriptural record of an insubordinate prophet in Numbers 22-24 appears to exhibit the inverse Request Prophetic Word

The prophet that I am talking about is in all honesty Balaam, the child of Beor. This specific prophet was not just known for his dominance of the prophets of God, yet he was additionally presumed for his unfailing capacity to give curses upon his barbarian foes. Nonetheless, by a lamentable new development this prophet who was once viewed as the devoted mouthpiece of God has out of nowhere ruined himself by his extreme want for squalid lucre. Be that as it may, despite his faulty good expectations, the Lord has utilized him in a powerful manner to foresee the apocalypse in the most wonderful and holding commencement of occasions associated with the Second Advent.

The entire thing began with a pretentious solicitation by this rapscallion King of Moab called Balak. Balak needed the prophet Balaam to revile his own kin, Israel. Each prophet deserving at least some respect would normally dismiss any such solicitation, but since this pagan lord had guaranteed Balaam significant privilege and wealth he chose to go. In spite of the fact that the Lord was not satisfied with the abhorrent course of this prophet, He allowed him to go on this excursion with the sovereigns of Balak, alerted him that solitary the words that He will place in his mouth he is to talk. By this alert the Lord means to put Balaam under what I would call a ‘spell of awesome motivation’ over which he has no control.

When Balaam met with the ruler of Moab, he was taken to the high places of Baal where the lord advised him to revile the country of Israel. Yet, rather than curses, endowments approached. The three solicitations from Balak to revile Israel were just met with expressions of harmony and success for the individuals of God. The main apocalypse announcement from Balaam that stood out enough to be noticed is found in Numbers 24:7, 8. In an undeniable commencement of end-time occasions encompassing the strong works of God through His named ruler, the prophet announced:

“He will spill the water out of his containers, and his seed will be in numerous waters, and his lord will be higher than Agag, and his realm will be lifted up. God delivered him forward once again from Egypt; he hath so to speak the quality of a unicorn: he will gobble up the countries his adversaries, and will break their bones, and puncture them however with his bolts. He framed, he set down as a lion and as an incredible lion: who will work him up… ”

This specific prediction sounds very like an apocalypse prescience gave by the patriarch Jacob, concerning his child Judah, found in Genesis 49:9, 10. It is additionally as per the most recent day predictions found in Psalms 110 and Revelation 19 disclosing to us how Christ will manage the countries with a bar of iron and decimate the lords of the earth.

As Balaam keeps on gift the offspring of Israel, disregarding himself, the lord of Moab turned out to be irate and was prepared to excuse him from his essence. Yet, the prophet made him to comprehend that he can’t talk something besides what God has placed in his mouth. Thus he continued his outcry telling the ruler of Moab what will befall his kin in the last days. Here is the commencement to apocalypse from the expert articulation of Balaam:

“I will see him, yet not currently: I will see him, however not near: there will come a Star out of Jacob, and a Scepter will emerge from Israel, and will destroy the sides of Moab, and wreck all the offspring of Sheth.” Num. 24:17

In affirmation of the end-time utilization of this prescience concerning the demolition of Moab, the prophet Isaiah made a most intriguing expectation concerning the Second Coming. This is the thing that he forecasted:

“Also, it will be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have hung tight for him, and he will spare us: this is the Lord; we have sat tight for him, we will be happy and cheer in his salvation. For in this mountain will the hand of the Lord rest, and Moab will be trodden down under him, even as a straw is trodden down for the dunghill.” Isa. 25:9, 10

This is obviously a prediction that relates straightforwardly the Second Advent. In the commencement to the furthest limit of the world from the point of view of the Old Testament, you will generally discover a large portion of these predictions given in Old Testament symbolism, yet the proof is evident that it is of end-time noteworthiness. This is unequivocally the situation with Balaam’s prescience. There are numerous such predictions in the Bible, and we have to contemplate them so as to improve our comprehension of a day ago occasions.
