Mt Deliverance Worship Center sermon.
The donkey being trapped 3x between the angel and Balaam is a foreshadow of Balaam being brought 3x to curse the Israelites.
Common Jewish belief that animals and humans had a common language before the fall.
Balaam operated by witchcraft, not by God.
When you are blessed by God, no one can put a curse on you. He even forbid Balaam, a man of sorcery, from cursing God’s people.
God has power all over creation. The donkey spake, the fish with gold in its mouth was in the right place at the right time, and the rooster crowed at the right time. Mature is evidence of how big God is and He speaks through nature and animals.
The word of the Lord comes alive through study of the bible. He speaks through reading, praise, prayer, and the Holy Spirit. God can speak through any part of His creation.
Hebrews 1:1 – God spoke through his prophets in old, but now He speaks through Jesus, the highest of all that He uses.
Superstitions are tied to witchcraft. They tie God’s people down. Luck comes from Lucifer? (Regardless, Christians are blessed by God, not lucky)
