The Teaching of Balaam

The Message of HyperGrace today is no message of Grace at all. It is the teaching of Balaam. Anyone who believes it will follow the footsteps of Balaam.

God is King, and He sits on the Throne. When God sits in the Courtroom of Heaven, He sits on the Throne of Grace. ‭Psalms 89:14 says “righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne”. The accuser of the brethren, literally meaning Satan, comes to accuse us daily. He uses the same laws of God but with a twist, since he is the father of lies. Imagine you just sin knowingly. The enemy immediately rushes into the court to make a case against you. The devil quotes the very Scripture you violated and questions the justice system of God on top of that. What does God do? Of course, God doesn’t care what the enemy has to say. But there are two options eitherway. A similar thing happened to Jeshua the High Priest. Let’s see what went on;

‭Zechariah 3:1-2, 4-5 NLT‬
[1] Then the angel showed me Jeshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord. The Accuser, Satan, was there at the angel’s right hand, making accusations against Jeshua. [2] And the Lord said to Satan, “I, the Lord, reject your accusations, Satan. Yes, the Lord, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebukes you. This man is like a burning stick that has been snatched from the fire.”[4] So the angel said to the others standing there, “Take off his filthy clothes.” And turning to Jeshua he said, “See, I have taken away your sins, and now I am giving you these fine new clothes.” [5] Then I said, “They should also place a clean turban on his head.” So they put a clean priestly turban on his head and dressed him in new clothes while the angel of the Lord stood by.”

God showed him mercy. He rebuked the enemy with His Name, reminding Satan that Jeshua’s sin had already had its reparations. How? He tossed Jeshua into the fire of His Wrath and snatched Him out by His Mercy although He had sinned. Because God had exercised judgment on Jeshua Himself, Satan did not have the right to have him. God did not leave the filth on Jeshua, remember? He gave Him a new holy garment. Case closed. Literally! What happens if this session repeats itself multiple times because Joshua keeps on sinning? The day God decides to not show him mercy, that is doomsday. He will not only pour His Wrath on him but abandon him over to Satan.

‭Romans 1:24, 28 NLT‬
[24] So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other’s bodies. [28] Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done.

Abandoning one over to Satan is even a sign of mercy compared to enduring the Wrath of God. Like the curse of Cain, one becomes a wanderer. ‭1 Corinthians 5:5 NLT‬ says  “you must throw this man out and hand him over to Satan so that his sinful nature will be destroyed and he himself will be saved on the day the Lord returns.” Whether God will show mercy or abandon us to Satan, there is no formula to ascertain. ‭Romans 9:14-15 “Are we saying, then, that God was unfair? Of course not! For God said to Moses, “I will show mercy to anyone I choose, and I will show compassion to anyone I choose.”

Even in the living out of our Righteousness, we ought to plead for mercy. How much more when we sin? If you knew what sin does, you would fear God and depart from evil. God is just in whatever decision He chooses to make. To live in sin is dangerous. To live in sin and think grace will save you is a delusion. One thing that sin does is that it gives the kingdom of darkness bragging rights. ‭2 Samuel 12:14 AMP‬ says “because by this deed you have given [a great] opportunity to the enemies of the Lord to blaspheme [Him], the son that is born to you shall certainly die.”

Our sin gives Satan the chance to talk nonsense in front of Almighty God in the Courtroom of Heaven. What the enemy is always trying to do is to commit the trickery of Balaam. Once he can convince us to sin, he will insult God with it and hope that God will remove His Hand of Mercy from our matter. Have you seen why we shouldn’t take sin lightly? Satan doesn’t fear God, and by living in sin we become more like Satan than like God. In fact, to outrightly sin is to deny Christ and give authority back to Satan as Adam and Eve did in the garden.

2 thoughts on “The Teaching of Balaam”

  1. Christians take it for granted that God is mercy and practice the double deal of good and evil. We should put in mind that he is also just

  2. Sin must therefore not be taken lightly, because sinning might let us run out of grace and mercy of GOD, GOD bless you brother.
