The commencement of apocalypse occasions from various predictions of the sacred texts is regularly viewed as the space of prophets, for example, Daniel and John. Aside from the way that these men are viewed as roused hirelings of God, their devotion as individual devotees REQUEST A PROPHETIC WORD has supported the certainty of their listeners. Subsequently, it persuades that the Lord just talks through individuals who are dedicated to Him. Be that as it may, the scriptural record of an insubordinate prophet in Numbers 22-24 appears to show the inverse.
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 rapscallion foes. Nonetheless, by an awful unforeseen development, this prophet who was once viewed as the steadfast mouthpiece of God has unexpectedly tainted himself by his over the top want for grimy lucre. Be that as it may, regardless of his flawed good goals, the Lord has powerfully utilized him to foresee the apocalypse in the grandest and holding commencement of occasions associated with the Second Advent.
The entire thing began with a pretentious solicitation by this pagan King of Moab called Balak. Balak needed the prophet Balaam to revile his kin, Israel. Each prophet deserving at least moderate respect would normally dismiss any such solicitation, but since this barbarian ruler had guaranteed Balaam significant privilege and wealth he chose to go. Although the Lord was not satisfied with the malicious course of this prophet, He allowed him to go on this excursion with the sovereigns of Balak, advised 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 celestial 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, gifts approached. The three solicitations from Balak to revile Israel were just met with expressions of harmony and flourishing 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 powerful works of God through His selected ruler, the prophet announced:
“He will spill the water out of his cans, and his seed will be in numerous waters, and his lord will be higher than Agag, and his realm will be magnified. God delivered him out of Egypt; he hath the quality of a unicorn: he will gobble up the countries his foes, and will break their bones, and penetrate them however with his bolts. He framed, he set down like a lion and as an extraordinary lion: who will work him up… ”
This specific prescience sounds very like an apocalypse prediction gave by the patriarch Jacob, concerning his child Judah, found in Genesis 49:9, 10. It is likewise 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 pole of iron and annihilate the lords of the earth.
As Balaam keeps on the gift the offspring of Israel, notwithstanding himself, the lord of Moab turned out to be extremely furious and was prepared to excuse him from his essence. Be that as it may, the prophet made him comprehend that he can’t talk something besides what God has placed in his mouth. Thus he continued his languishment telling the lord of Moab what will befall his kin in the last days. Here is the commencement to apocalypse from the expressiveness 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 obliterate all the offspring of Sheth.” Num. 24:17
In affirmation of the end-time use of this prescience concerning the decimation of Moab, the prophet Isaiah made a most intriguing forecast concerning the Second Coming. This is the thing that he forecasted:
“Furthermore, it will be said in that day, Lo, this is our God; we have sat tight for him, and he will spare us: this is the Lord; we have hung tight for him, we will be happy and celebrate in his salvation. For in this mountain will the hand of the Lord rest, and Moab will be trodden down under him, even as straw is trodden down for the dunghill.” Isa. 25:9, 10
This is unmistakably a prediction that relates straightforwardly to the Second Advent. In the commencement to the furthest limit of the world from the viewpoint of the Old Testament, you will for the most part discover the majority of these predictions given in Old Testament symbolism, yet the proof is certain that it is of end-time criticalness. This is exactly the situation with Balaam’s prescience. There are numerous such predictions in the Bible, and we have to consider them to improve our comprehension of a day ago occasions.
