There are many prophets today who say they are speaking for God, but they are speaking only for themselves. False prophecy is a deep and dark pit, it’s a trap that feeds us emotionally but is terrible for us spiritually. Throughout the Bible false prophets and prophecies are spoken against. The New Testament also rings the bell of warning in several locations. Let’s take James 3:1 as an example, “My brethren, let not many of you become teachers, knowing that we shall receive a stricter judgment.” In our reading today, we learn about Balaam. While not an Israelite, Balaam was a man who heard God. Unfortunately, he was not one of the many men and women outside of Israel who loved God. When God communicated to him, he would listen and obey to a point. Interestingly, the error of Balaam was not false teaching but was something else, which we will explore later in the year.
