THE WAY OF BALAAM 1

Rev 2:12-14[NET]
12 "To the angel of the church in Pergamum write the following:
"This is the solemn pronouncement of the one who has the sharp double-edged sword: 13 'I know where you live - where Satan's throne is. Yet you continue to cling to my name and you have not denied your faith in me, even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, who was killed in your city where Satan lives. 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.


Satan is not omnipresent but can only be in one place at the same time. By the time Jesus wrote this letter to the church in Pergamum, Pergamum was the city where Satan lived. There was a magnificent pagan temple on the top of the tallest mountain in Pergamum, and sacrifices were offered to Satan on that mountain every day.

That city was infested with strong demonic activity, but that little church there was stronger than the gigantic Satanic temple if they continued to walk accurately. Satan had initially tried to destroy the faith of the Christians in the church by using his followers to persecute and kill them, but it did not work; they did not deny the faith (see Rev 2:13).

By the time the Lord wrote this letter to the church in Pergamum, the devil had changed tactics from attacking the church with persecutions from without to now seducing the church with error from within. Balam’s teaching instructed Balak to seduce the people of God into iniquity so that they would lose God’s covering and be destroyed.

Go into today remembering that the greatest threat to your security is not if Satan himself lives in your city or neighborhood. It is if you allow in ‘new doctrines’ that continually reduce your hatred and dread for sin.
