“DEAR READER … ARE YOU A DONKEY?”
If not you should be!
Please let me explain …
When Israel left Egypt to enter into the Promised land of Canaan, there were two tribes called Moab and Midian, who wanted to stop them and drive Israel from passing through their lands … as they were too mighty.
So king Moab engaged the services of a seer (sort of like a prophet) called Balaam to curse Israel … for whoever Balaam “ … blessest is blessed, and he whom thou cursest is cursed.” (Numbers 22:6).
So as Balaam was going to meet the king, the angel of the LORD (Numbers 22:22) with a large sword, blocked Balaam’s progress. Not seeing that the angel did this, Balaam struck his donkey. The donkey crushed Balaam’s foot against a stone wall … and so Balaam struck his donkey a second time.
The donkey lay down and Balaam struck it a third time.
The LORD then spoke through the donkey and Balaam, having his eyes opened, knew it was the LORD that had brought all this to pass.
the king of Moab asked Balaam to curse Israel … and three times Balaam
BALAAM HAD SEEN THAT IT PLEASED GOD TO BLESS ISRAEL!
the situation is similar in that the leaders of the Arab nations are
The Balaam and other Western Balaam nations, currently
curse Israel, and stop the Jews migrating to Israel … indeed … stop
their building of settlements in the mountains of Israel.
But in promoting a Two State Solution, the Western Nations, being blinded like Balaam … can’t see that it is the Lord that will bless or curse them according to how they treat Israel.
Indeed, Ezekiel chapter 35 warns those of the consequences of trying to destroy Israel.
Indeed, the Lord has been more than gracious to the Arabic people as God has given them 500 more land than Israel in which to dwell.
Dear Reader, the die is cast … and prophecy will come to bear … however in the meantime, be a donkey … and open the eyes of any blind Balaamic individuals.
CHRISTIAN … ARE YOU RIDING
