THE WAY OF BALAAM 3

­čöŐDevotional Audio Link☞ http://bit.ly/audio1136


Rev 2:14 [NET]
14 But I have a few things against you: You have some people there who follow the teaching of Balaam, who instructed Balak to put a stumbling block before the people of Israel so they would eat food sacrificed to idols and commit sexual immorality.


When Desmond got back to the city, he started attending another church because his experience in the village had opened his eyes to some realities. For the first time in his Christian life, he stopped running after ‘men of God’ that have ‘power’ but started seeking for where he could hear the word of God, experience the power of God, and grow spiritually. But the first church assembly he started attending seemed to be great in the word, but filled with lasciviousness and sexual immorality.

We have seen from the study of the letter to the church in Pergamum that if Satan cannot weaken people’s faith using external methods like persecutions, he tries to destroy them internally by introducing false teachings that make them incur the judgment Christ (see Rev 2:15). We can also deduce that the way of Balaam and that of the Nicolaitans would seek to trivialize lasciviousness and sexual immorality among Christians.

One of the ways you will identify a false doctrine is through the written word of God. Most, if not all false teachings will have scriptural backings, but if your understanding of one scripture makes the word of God contradict itself in several other scriptures, it is your understanding of the word that is not correct.

The most dangerous thing that can happen to a Christian is if he starts feeding on false doctrines and does not know it. Many false teachings would usually end up leading people to lasciviousness and sexual immorality.

As you go into today, determine to separate yourself from doctrines that make it easier for you to play with the idea of immorality. Ask the Lord to deliver you from every teaching and doctrine that is false.
