Balaam’s Curse

Balaam’s Curse

There is an interesting story in Ancient Scripture, and this occurs just before Israel crosses the Jordan and into the “Promised Land.”  We are today on the same, but “spiritual journey,” that mirrors the Exodus, so this is critical for us, because we are about to face the same problems as we are about to cross Jordan and into the Heavenly Promised Land.  Let us re-cap the situation.  Balak is the King of the Nation of Moab and is stressed out, as out of the wilderness to his south came a few people, that is… Continue reading
