The “Spirit” of “Balaam the Son of Beor from Peor/Pethor”: The ENEMY OF YAH’S TRUE CHILDREN

SHALOM!

In the Hebrew Language, Balaam means “DEVOURER”.

 In Biblical the meaning of the name Beor is: Burning, foolish, mad.

The Spirit of Balaam is all about luring YAH’S People into disobeying YAH by doing the very things that cause them to be impure before YAHUVEH/ YAHWEH GOD, for example, eating unclean foods, sexual immorality, sexual relations with unequally yoked people. Note that as seen in John 1 and elsewhere, LIGHT and DARKNESS can NOT mix or dwell together!!!

Just like the “Spirit of Jezebel” lives on and is mentioned in both the Old and New Covenants/Testaments, the “Spirit of Balaam” does live on and is mentioned in both Covenants. Both the Spirits of Jezebel and Balaam are so wicked. They both dealt in witchcraft and Ba-al / bel worship.

Both the Spirits of Jezebel and Balaam hate the TRUE CHILDREN OF YAH (a.k.a Spiritual Israel / Spiritual Jews) with complete hatred and will do anything to get them destroyed even by their own MAKER.

It takes the GRACE OF YAH to stand up against them. Elijah did and so did some Children of Israel, such as Phinehas (Numbers 25).

Revelation 2:14 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

14 “But I have a few things against you. You have some there who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who was teaching Balak to put a stumbling block before Bnei-Yisrael, to eat food sacrificed to idols and to commit sexual immorality.

YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH wrote letters through Apostle Yahuchanan (a.k.a John) to the Seven Messianic Communities of that time. Those Seven Messianic Communities actually formed the FOUNDATION for the various Messianic Communities to day. The Communities are all meant to be ONE (a.k.a “ECHAD” in Hebrew) in YAH. They are different in their own ways but they all form the BODY OF YAHUSHUA (not the Church!). They each have one thing they do that YAHUSHUA does not appreciate and they need to correct it ASAP (as soon as possible).

 

2 Peter 2:15 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

15 They have abandoned the straight way. They have gone astray. They have followed the way of Balaam the son of Beor,[a] who loved the wages of wickedness.

Apostle Peter also had something to say about the SPIRIT OF BALAAM. This shows how persistent the spirit is.

 

Jude 11 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

11 Woe to them! For they went the way of Cain; they were consumed for pay in Balaam’s error; and in Korah’s rebellion they have been destroyed.

Inspired by RUACH HA KODESH (a.k.a HOLY SPIRIT), Jude also had something to say about the Spirit of Balaam.

Note that Cain is a representation of the anyone or any spirit that hates YAH’S COMMANDMENTS! After Cain sinned against YAH by murdering his brother Abel, he was separated from his parents and one of his sisters. YAH created a specific section on the earth for him to dwell where SIN would prevail the way Cain and his generation desired until they died. Unfortunately, due to lack of self-discipline, it was Cain’s descendants who ended up creating what we now call NEPHILIM, RAPHAIM, etc as a result of succumbing to having sexual relations with “The Sons of YAH”. The account can be seen in Genesis 6 as well as the Book of Jasher and The Book of Enoch gives more information on who the “Sons of YAH” actually were. You can read more on this by clicking here.

 

Reference is made to Balaam the Son of Beor throughout the HOLY BIBLICAL SCRIPTURES as seen in the image below:

Beor was the father of Balaam. What about him?

The name Beor in the Bible 

(http://www.abarim-publications.com/Meaning/Beor.html#.WkadFt9l_IU)

 The name Beor is applied twice in the Bible:
  • First as the name of the father of Bela, the first king of Edom (Genesis 36:32), which lies due south of the Salt Sea.
  • Secondly as the father of Balaam of Pethor (Numbers 22:5; spelled בער in Numbers 24:3 and 24:15). The apostle Peter calls this man Βοσορ (Bosor; 2 Peter 2:15).

Balaam’s father Beor was from Pethor, which is situated in Aram-naharaim (Deuteronomy 23:4), meaning Aram of the Two Rivers. This Aram of the Two Rivers is traditionally interpreted to be Mesopotamia, but recent research suggests that this Aram-naharaim is the Jordan/Jabbok region. See the discussion under Pethor.

Because some consider Pethor to be located in Canaan, it becomes rather tempting to suggest that the Beor/Bela couple of Edom is in fact the same as the Beor/Balaam couple of Pethor:

Genesis 36:32
בלע
Bela
בן־בעור
son of Beor
Numbers 22:5
בלעם
Balaam
בן־בעור
son of Beor

In the Edom king-list of Genesis 36 we see kings being imported from all over the place (even from, what do you know, the Euphrates — 36:37). However, in Numbers 20:14 Edom is already a kingdom. The king of Edom refuses Israel passage, and even comes out with an armed force against Israel. It seems unlikely that the nerdy, donkey-riding Balaam of two chapters later is the same as Edom’s valiant first king Bela, who stayed king onto his death (36:33).

 

 

Balaam started his practise of witchcraft from a young age. It seemed as he had been trained from a young age in that field.

Balaam’s origin is first mentioned in Book of Jasher Chapter 61.

Book of Jasher, Chapter 61

1 And it came to pass at that time Pharaoh king of Egypt commanded all his people to make for him a strong palace in Egypt.

2 And he also commanded the sons of Jacob to assist the Egyptians in the building, and the Egyptians made a beautiful and elegant palace for a royal habitation, and he dwelt therein and he renewed his government and he reigned securely.

3 And Zebulun the son of Jacob died in that year, that is the seventy-second year of the going down of the Israelites to Egypt, and Zebulun died a hundred and fourteen years old, and was put into a coffin and given into the hands of his children.

4 And in the seventy-fifth year died his brother Simeon, he was a hundred and twenty years old at his death, and he was also put into a coffin and given into the hands of his children.

5 And Zepho the son of Eliphaz the son of Esau, captain of the host to Angeas king of Dinhabah, was still daily enticing Angeas to prepare for battle to fight with the sons of Jacob in Egypt, and Angeas was unwilling to do this thing, for his servants had related to him all the might of the sons of Jacob, what they had done unto them in their battle with the children of Esau.

6 And Zepho was in those days daily enticing Angeas to fight with the sons of Jacob in those days.

7 And after some time Angeas hearkened to the words of Zepho and consented to him to fight with the sons of Jacob in Egypt, and Angeas got all his people in order, a people numerous as the sand which is upon the sea shore, and he formed his resolution to go to Egypt to battle.

8 And amongst the servants of Angeas was a youth fifteen years old, Balaam the son of Beor was his name and the youth was very wise and understood the art of witchcraft.

9 And Angeas said unto Balaam, Conjure for us, I pray thee, with the witchcraft, that we may know who will prevail in this battle to which we are now proceeding.

10 And Balaam ordered that they should bring him wax, and he made thereof the likeness of chariots and horsemen representing the army of Angeas and the army of Egypt, and he put them in the cunningly prepared waters that he had for that purpose, and he took in his hand the boughs of myrtle trees, and he exercised his cunning, and he joined them over the water, and there appeared unto him in the water the resembling images of the hosts of Angeas falling before the resembling images of the Egyptians and the sons of Jacob.

11 And Balaam told this thing to Angeas, and Angeas despaired and did not arm himself to go down to Egypt to battle, and he remained in his city.

12 And when Zepho the son of Eliphaz saw that Angeas despaired of going forth to battle with the Egyptians, Zepho fled from Angeas from Africa, and he went and came unto Chittim.

13 And all the people of Chittim received him with great honor, and they hired him to fight their battles all the days, and Zepho became exceedingly rich in those days, and the troops of the king of Africa still spread themselves in those days, and the children of Chittim assembled and went to Mount Cuptizia on account of the troops of Angeas king of Africa, who were advancing upon them.

…..etc……

(http://www.sacred-texts.com/chr/apo/jasher/61.htm)

 

Whenever the King of Africa and later the Zepho the King of the Children of Chittim wanted to war, they enlisted the help of Balaam’s wizardry/sorcery/divination to predict what would happen. On some occasions, YAUVEH/YAHWEH GOD Almighty did not allow him to succeed in seeing the future.

 

Balaam once collaborated with The Children of Esau because they seemed to be victorious over many people on the earth, that was after the Children of Israel/Jacob.

Book of Jasher, Chapter 64

1 And Balaam the son of Beor was at that time with Angeas in the battle, and when he saw that Zepho prevailed over Angeas, he fled from there and came to Chittim.

2 And Zepho and the children of Chittim received him with great honor, for Zepho knew Balaam’s wisdom, and Zepho gave unto Balaam many gifts and he remained with him.

 

…..

25 And Zepho the son of Eliphaz the son of Esau king of Chittim, and Hadad the son of Bedad king of Edom, and all their camps, and all the children of the east, and children of Ishmael, a people numerous as sand, encamped together in the valley of Pathros opposite Tachpanches.

26 And Balaam the son of Beor the Syrian was there in the camp of Zepho, for he came with the children of Chittim to the battle, and Balaam was a man highly honored in the eyes of Zepho and his men.

27 And Zepho said unto Balaam, Try by divination for us that we may know who will prevail in the battle, we or the Egyptians.

28 And Balaam rose up and tried the art of divination, and he was skillful in the knowledge of it, but he was confused and the work was destroyed in his hand.

29 And he tried it again but it did not succeed, and Balaam despaired of it and left it and did not complete it, for this was from the Lord, in order to cause Zepho and his people to fall into the hand of the children of Israel, who had trusted in the Lord, the God of their ancestors, in their war.

30 And Zepho and Hadad put their forces in battle array, and all the Egyptians went alone against them, about three hundred thousand men, and not one man of Israel was with them.

 

After the death of Zepho who was the son of Eliphaz, the son of Esau, and his successor as king (Janeas), Balaam fled from the Kingdom of the Childen of Chittim to Egypt where Pharoah received him very well. He was highly promoted and honoured.

However, Balaam’s arrival and promotion in Egypt was the beginning of the most serious troubles that the Egyptians experienced.

 

Book of Jasher, Chapter 67

1 There was a man in the land of Egypt of the seed of Levi, whose name was Amram, the son of Kehath, the son of Levi, the son of Israel.

2 And this man went and took a wife, namely Jochebed the daughter of Levi his father’s sister, and she was one hundred and twenty-six years old, and he came unto her.

3 And the woman conceived and bare a daughter, and she called her name Miriam, because in those days the Egyptians had embittered the lives of the children of Israel.

4 And she conceived again and bare a son and she called his name Aaron, for in the days of her conception, Pharaoh began to spill the blood of the male children of Israel.

5 In those days died Zepho the son of Eliphaz, son of Esau, king of Chittim, and Janeas reigned in his stead.

6 And the time that Zepho reigned over the children of Chittim was fifty years, and he died and was buried in the city of Nabna in the land of Chittim.

7 And Janeas, one of the mighty men of the children of Chittim, reigned after him and he reigned fifty years.

8 And it was after the death of the king of Chittim that Balaam the son of Beor fled from the land of Chittim, and he went and came to Egypt to Pharaoh king of Egypt.

9 And Pharaoh received him with great honor, for he had heard of his wisdom, and he gave him presents and made him for a counsellor, and aggrandized him.

10 And Balaam dwelt in Egypt, in honor with all the nobles of the king, and the nobles exalted him, because they all coveted to learn his wisdom.

11 And in the hundred and thirtieth year of Israel’s going down to Egypt, Pharaoh dreamed that he was sitting upon his kingly throne, and lifted up his eyes and saw an old man standing before him, and there were scales in the hands of the old man, such scales as are used by merchants.

12 And the old man took the scales and hung them before Pharaoh.

13 And the old man took all the elders of Egypt and all its nobles and great men, and he tied them together and put them in one scale.

14 And he took a milk kid and put it into the other scale, and the kid preponderated over all.

15 And Pharaoh was astonished at this dreadful vision, why the kid should preponderate over all, and Pharaoh awoke and behold it was a dream.

16 And Pharaoh rose up early in the morning and called all his servants and related to them the dream, and the men were greatly afraid.

17 And the king said to all his wise men, Interpret I pray you the dream which I dreamed, that I may know it.

18 And Balaam the son of Beor answered the king and said unto him, This means nothing else but a great evil that will spring up against Egypt in the latter days.

19 For a son will be born to Israel who will destroy all Egypt and its inhabitants, and bring forth the Israelites from Egypt with a mighty hand.

20 Now therefore, O king, take counsel upon this matter, that you may destroy the hope of the children of Israel and their expectation, before this evil arise against Egypt.

21 And the king said unto Balaam, And what shall we do unto Israel? surely after a certain manner did we at first counsel against them and could not prevail over them.

22 Now therefore give you also advice against them by which we may prevail over them.

23 And Balaam answered the king, saying, Send now and call thy two counsellors, and we will see what their advice is upon this matter and afterward thy servant will speak.

24 And the king sent and called his two counsellors Reuel the Midianite and Job the Uzite, and they came and sat before the king.

25 And the king said to them, Behold you have both heard the dream which I have dreamed, and the interpretation thereof; now therefore give counsel and know and see what is to be done to the children of Israel, whereby we may prevail over them, before their evil shall spring up against us.

26 And Reuel the Midianite answered the king and said, May the king live, may the king live forever.

27 If it seem good to the king, let him desist from the Hebrews and leave them, and let him not stretch forth his hand against them.

28 For these are they whom the Lord chose in days of old, and took as the lot of his inheritance from amongst all the nations of the earth and the kings of the earth; and who is there that stretched his hand against them with impunity, of whom their God was not avenged?

29 Surely thou knowest that when Abraham went down to Egypt, Pharaoh, the former king of Egypt, saw Sarah his wife, and took her for a wife, because Abraham said, She is my sister, for he was afraid, lest the men of Egypt should slay him on account of his wife.

30 And when the king of Egypt had taken Sarah then God smote him and his household with heavy plagues, until he restored unto Abraham his wife Sarah, then was he healed.

31 And Abimelech the Gerarite, king of the Philistines, God punished on account of Sarah wife of Abraham, in stopping up every womb from man to beast.

32 When their God came to Abimelech in the dream of night and terrified him in order that he might restore to Abraham Sarah whom he had taken, and afterward all the people of Gerar were punished on account of Sarah, and Abraham prayed to his God for them, and he was entreated of him, and he healed them.

33 And Abimelech feared all this evil that came upon him and his people, and he returned to Abraham his wife Sarah, and gave him with her many gifts.

34 He did so also to Isaac when he had driven him from Gerar, and God had done wonderful things to him, that all the water courses of Gerar were dried up, and their productive trees did not bring forth.

35 Until Abimelech of Gerar, and Ahuzzath one of his friends, and Pichol the captain of his host, went to him and they bent and bowed down before him to the ground.

36 And they requested of him to supplicate for them, and he prayed to the Lord for them, and the Lord was entreated of him and he healed them.

37 Jacob also, the plain man, was delivered through his integrity from the hand of his brother Esau, and the hand of Laban the Syrian his mother’s brother, who had sought his life; likewise from the hand of all the kings of Canaan who had come together against him and his children to destroy them, and the Lord delivered them out of their hands, that they turned upon them and smote them, for who had ever stretched forth his hand against them with impunity?

38 Surely Pharaoh the former, thy father’s father, raised Joseph the son of Jacob above all the princes of the land of Egypt, when he saw his wisdom, for through his wisdom he rescued all the inhabitants of the land from the famine.

39 After which he ordered Jacob and his children to come down to Egypt, in order that through their virtue, the land of Egypt and the land of Goshen might be delivered from the famine.

40 Now therefore if it seem good in thine eyes, cease from destroying the children of Israel, but if it be not thy will that they shall dwell in Egypt, send them forth from here, that they may go to the land of Canaan, the land where their ancestors sojourned.

41 And when Pharaoh heard the words of Jethro he was very angry with him, so that he rose with shame from the king’s presence, and went to Midian, his land, and took Joseph’s stick with him.

42 And the king said to Job the Uzite, What sayest thou Job, and what is thy advice respecting the Hebrews?

43 So Job said to the king, Behold all the inhabitants of the land are in thy power, let the king do as it seems good in his eyes.

44 And the king said unto Balaam, What dost thou say, Balaam, speak thy word that we may hear it.

45 And Balaam said to the king, Of all that the king has counselled against the Hebrews will they be delivered, and the king will not be able to prevail over them with any counsel.

46 For if thou thinkest to lessen them by the flaming fire, thou canst not prevail over them, for surely their God delivered Abraham their father from Ur of the Chaldeans; and if thou thinkest to destroy them with a sword, surely Isaac their father was delivered from it, and a ram was placed in his stead.

47 And if with hard and rigorous labor thou thinkest to lessen them, thou wilt not prevail even in this, for their father Jacob served Laban in all manner of hard work, and prospered.

48 Now therefore, O King, hear my words, for this is the counsel which is counselled against them, by which thou wilt prevail over them, and from which thou shouldst not depart.

49 If it please the king let him order all their children which shall be born from this day forward, to be thrown into the water, for by this canst thou wipe away their name, for none of them, nor of their fathers, were tried in this manner.

50 And the king heard the words of Balaam, and the thing pleased the king and the princes, and the king did according to the word of Balaam.

51 And the king ordered a proclamation to be issued and a law to be made throughout the land of Egypt, saying, Every male child born to the Hebrews from this day forward shall be thrown into the water.

52 And Pharaoh called unto all his servants, saying, Go now and seek throughout the land of Goshen where the children of Israel are, and see that every son born to the Hebrews shall be cast into the river, but every daughter you shall let live.

53 And when the children of Israel heard this thing which Pharaoh had commanded, to cast their male children into the river, some of the people separated from their wives and others adhered to them.

54 And from that day forward, when the time of delivery arrived to those women of Israel who had remained with their husbands, they went to the field to bring forth there, and they brought forth in the field, and left their children upon the field and returned home.

55 And the Lord who had sworn to their ancestors to multiply them, sent one of his ministering angels which are in heaven to wash each child in water, to anoint and swathe it and to put into its hands two smooth stones from one of which it sucked milk and from the other honey, and he caused its hair to grow to its knees, by which it might cover itself; to comfort it and to cleave to it, through his compassion for it.

56 And when God had compassion over them and had desired to multiply them upon the face of the land, he ordered his earth to receive them to be preserved therein till the time of their growing up, after which the earth opened its mouth and vomited them forth and they sprouted forth from the city like the herb of the earth, and the grass of the forest, and they returned each to his family and to his father’s house, and they remained with them.

57 And the babes of the children of Israel were upon the earth like the herb of the field, through God’s grace to them.

58 And when all the Egyptians saw this thing, they went forth, each to his field with his yoke of oxen and his ploughshare, and they ploughed it up as one ploughs the earth at seed time.

59 And when they ploughed they were unable to hurt the infants of the children of Israel, so the people increased and waxed exceedingly.

60 And Pharaoh ordered his officers daily to go to Goshen to seek for the babes of the children of Israel.

61 And when they had sought and found one, they took it from its mother’s bosom by force, and threw it into the river, but the female child they left with its mother; thus did the Egyptians do to the Israelites all the days.

It was because of Balaam that the Children of Israel lost their male children during longest period of their stay in Egypt. He advised the King based on the dream which Balaam had dreamed that he should destroy all the male babies so that any chance of giving birth to a deliverer would be destroyed. Pharoah’s plan was to cause the Israelites to remain as his slaves in Egypt forever. He did not know that YAH/ELOHIM (a.k.a GOD) had a plan.

Based on the following account, the blood of the Israelites must be crying out in the land of Egypt. See what happened that would bring this about in the account below:

Book of Jasher, Chapter 69

1 And the king of Edom died in those days, in the eighteenth year of his reign, and was buried in his temple which he had built for himself as his royal residence in the land of Edom.

2 And the children of Esau sent to Pethor, which is upon the river, and they fetched from there a young man of beautiful eyes and comely aspect, whose name was Saul, and they made him king over them in the place of Samlah.

3 And Saul reigned over all the children of Esau in the land of Edom for forty years.

4 And when Pharaoh king of Egypt saw that the counsel which Balaam had advised respecting the children of Israel did not succeed, but that still they were fruitful, multiplied and increased throughout the land of Egypt,

5 Then Pharaoh commanded in those days that a proclamation should be issued throughout Egypt to the children of Israel, saying, No man shall diminish any thing of his daily labor.

6 And the man who shall be found deficient in his labor which he performs daily, whether in mortar or in bricks, then his youngest son shall be put in their place.

7 And the labor of Egypt strengthened upon the children of Israel in those days, and behold if one brick was deficient in any man’s daily labor, the Egyptians took his youngest boy by force from his mother, and put him into the building in the place of the brick which his father had left wanting.

8 And the men of Egypt did so to all the children of Israel day by day, all the days for a long period.

9 But the tribe of Levi did not at that time work with the Israelites their brethren, from the beginning, for the children of Levi knew the cunning of the Egyptians which they exercised at first toward the Israelites.

(http://www.sacred-texts.com/chr/apo/jasher/69.htm)

 

Balaam the Son of Beor from Peor/Pethor was a very evil man. When reading the account of the Israelites’ journey to the PROMISED LAND, we learn from Numbers 22-25 that as they neared the PROMISED LAND, a man called Balak who was the King of the Moabites at the time heard that the Children of Israel were coming towards his Kingdom. Additionally, Balak, King of Moab had heard of how great and mighty they were. He therefore sent his subjects to Balaam, the Son of Beor to ask him to place a CURSE upon the Children of Israel. Balaam really desired to do so but could not. YAHUVEH / YAHWEH GOD did not and could not allow it. Balaam ended up PRONOUNCING BLESSINGS UPON THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL (Numbers 23) and in the process announced the COMING OF THE MESSIAH YAHUSHUA who would help HIS people to overcome all evil and their enemies (Numbers 24:17-19). This angered Balak.

Meanwhile Balaam still had his eye on all the rewards that Balak had promised him if he was successful in his evil mission (Numbers 22)

Balaam ended up leading the Children of Israel to sin against YAHUVEH / YAHWEH by advising Balak, King of Moab to send the women in his Moabite Kingdom to seduce the Men of Israel. Sadly, their evil plan succeeded and in fact, YAHUVEH’S / YAHWEH’S anger was kindled against the Children of Israel and a PLAGUE BROKE OUT amongst the Children of Israel. It was a man called PHINEHAS who put an end to the mess by killing an Israelite man who entered a tent to have sexual relations with a Moabite woman while Moses was rebuking the rest of the Children of Israel. This can be found in Numbers 25.

 

Having read the Book of Jasher, I have learned that Balaam the Son of Beor had been in the lives of the Israelites before they left Egypt.

 

Note that the names of the Magicians who copied what Moses did in front of Pharoah were not mention in the Book of Exodus. However, when you read the Book of Jasher, you will find that the name of one of the Magicians is mentioned. The name echoes that of a man who later on nearly got all the Children of Israel to be destroyed by YAHUVEH / YAHWEH GOD.

 

Balaam spiritually came from Cain’s Lineage (and not Seth). He also came from Esau’s Lineage (and not Jacob’s). It is evident throughout the HOLY BIBLICAL SCRIPTURES that Balaam was either Satan himself or had been employed by Satan throughout his lifetime on earth to work against the PEACE and JOY of the Children of Israel. Note that while in Egypt, Balaam, the Son of Beor was one of the Magicians who competed against Moses in front of Pharoah. In fact, while Moses grew up in the Palace of Pharoah, he would see Balaam on a daily basis. Balaam knew the entire HISTORY OF THE LINEAGE OF SHEM beginning with Abraham. Balaam narrated it to the Pharoah so as to get Pharoah to order for the murder of Moses and the babes of Israel while he was still a child. Balaam hated the Children of Israel. According to the Book of Jasher, Balaam and everyone in the Palace knew that Moses was a Hebrew Israelite right from childhood.

When Moses, therefore encountered Balaam again in the future doing evil to the Children of Israel while in the Wilderness on the way to THE PROMISED LAND, Moses knew who and what he was dealing with.

It is also important to know that Balaam once fled from Egypt because he was afraid of Moses. Moses hated him so much when he learned that it was Balaam who kept advising Pharoah to make the Children of Israal’s Labour increase in a very bad way. Balaam fled to a nearby Kingdom where he ended up stealing the Kingdom from the King who was in-charge at the time.

Book of Jasher Chapter 70

39 And Balaam was afraid of Moses, and he and his two sons rose up and went forth from Egypt, and they fled and delivered their souls and betook themselves to the land of Cush to Kikianus, king of Cush.

 

Eventually, Moses fled Egypt as well in order to save his life from being taken by Pharoah and his subjects. Moses ended up in the nearby Kingdom where Balaam and his sons (fellow magicians) were residing and ruling. When Moses learned that Balaam had stolen the Kingdom and barricaded it with all kinds of animals (such as serpents) and objects of various kinds such as high walls, Moses with the help of the people who had been estranged from their Kingdom managed to break into the Kingdom walls that Balaam had set up. The estranged people followed all the instructions that Moses gave to the letter. It is clear through this account that Moses was full of great wisdom. Victory was obtained over Balaam and his sons. Balaam and his sons ended up fleeing

 

Book of Jasher, Chapter 72

1 And it was in those days that there was a great war between the children of Cush and the children of the east and Aram, and they rebelled against the king of Cush in whose hands they were.

2 So Kikianus king of Cush went forth with all the children of Cush, a people numerous as the sand, and he went to fight against Aram and the children of the east, to bring them under subjection.

3 And when Kikianus went out, he left Balaam the magician, with his two sons, to guard the city, and the lowest sort of the people of the land.

4 So Kikianus went forth to Aram and the children of the east, and he fought against them and smote them, and they all fell down wounded before Kikianus and his people.

5 And he took many of them captives and he brought them under subjection as at first, and he encamped upon their land to take tribute from them as usual.

6 And Balaam the son of Beor, when the king of Cush had left him to guard the city and the poor of the city, he rose up and advised with the people of the land to rebel against king Kikianus, not to let him enter the city when he should come home.

7 And the people of the land hearkened to him, and they swore to him and made him king over them, and his two sons for captains of the army.

8 So they rose up and raised the walls of the city at the two corners, and they built an exceeding strong building.

9 And at the third corner they dug ditches without number, between the city and the river which surrounded the whole land of Cush, and they made the waters of the river burst forth there.

10 At the fourth corner they collected numerous serpents by their incantations and enchantments, and they fortified the city and dwelt therein, and no one went out or in before them.

11 And Kikianus fought against Aram and the children of the east and he subdued them as before, and they gave him their usual tribute, and he went and returned to his land.

12 And when Kikianus the king of Cush approached his city and all the captains of the forces with him, they lifted up their eyes and saw that the walls of the city were built up and greatly elevated, so the men were astonished at this.

13 And they said one to the other, It is because they saw that we were delayed, in battle, and were greatly afraid of us, therefore have they done this thing and raised the city walls and fortified them so that the kings of Canaan might not come in battle against them.

14 So the king and the troops approached the city door and they looked up and behold, all the gates of the city were closed, and they called out to the sentinels, saying, Open unto us, that we may enter the city.

15 But the sentinels refused to open to them by the order of Balaam the magician, their king, they suffered them not to enter their city.

16 So they raised a battle with them opposite the city gate, and one hundred and thirty men of the army at Kikianus fell on that day.

17 And on the next day they continued to fight and they fought at the side of the river; they endeavored to pass but were not able, so some of them sank in the pits and died.

18 So the king ordered them to cut down trees to make rafts, upon which they might pass to them, and they did so.

19 And when they came to the place of the ditches, the waters revolved by mills, and two hundred men upon ten rafts were drowned.

20 And on the third day they came to fight at the side where the serpents were, but they could not approach there, for the serpents slew of them one hundred and seventy men, and they ceased fighting against Cush, and they besieged Cush for nine years, no person came out or in.

21 At that time that the war and the siege were against Cush, Moses fled from Egypt from Pharaoh who sought to kill him for having slain the Egyptian.

22 And Moses was eighteen years old when he fled from Egypt from the presence of Pharaoh, and he fled and escaped to the camp of Kikianus, which at that time was besieging Cush.

23 And Moses was nine years in the camp of Kikianus king of Cush, all the time that they were besieging Cush, and Moses went out and came in with them.

24 And the king and princes and all the fighting men loved Moses, for he was great and worthy, his stature was like a noble lion, his face was like the sun, and his strength was like that of a lion, and he was counsellor to the king.

25 And at the end of nine years, Kikianus was seized with a mortal disease, and his illness prevailed over him, and he died on the seventh day.

26 So his servants embalmed him and carried him and buried him opposite the city gate to the north of the land of Egypt.

27 And they built over him an elegant strong and high building, and they placed great stones below.

28 And the king’s scribes engraved upon those stones all the might of their king Kikianus, and all his battles which he had fought, behold they are written there at this day.

29 Now after the death of Kikianus king of Cush it grieved his men and troops greatly on account of the war.

30 So they said one to the other, Give us counsel what we are to do at this time, as we have resided in the wilderness nine years away from our homes.

31 If we say we will fight against the city many of us will fall wounded or killed, and if we remain here in the siege we shall also die.

32 For now all the kings of Aram and of the children of the east will hear that our king is dead, and they will attack us suddenly in a hostile manner, and they will fight against us and leave no remnant of us.

33 Now therefore let us go and make a king over us, and let us remain in the siege until the city is delivered up to us.

34 And they wished to choose on that day a man for king from the army of Kikianus, and they found no object of their choice like Moses to reign over them.

35 And they hastened and stripped off each man his garments and cast them upon the ground, and they made a great heap and placed Moses thereon.

36 And they rose up and blew with trumpets and called out before him, and said, May the king live, may the king live!

37 And all the people and nobles swore unto him to give him for a wife Adoniah the queen, the Cushite, wife of Kikianus, and they made Moses king over them on that day.

38 And all the people of Cush issued a proclamation on that day, saying, Every man must give something to Moses of what is in his possession.

39 And they spread out a sheet upon the heap, and every man cast into it something of what he had, one a gold earring and the other a coin.

40 Also of onyx stones, bdellium, pearls and marble did the children of Cush cast unto Moses upon the heap, also silver and gold in great abundance.

41 And Moses took all the silver and gold, all the vessels, and the bdellium and onyx stones, which all the children of Cush had given to him, and he placed them amongst his treasures.

42 And Moses reigned over the children of Cush on that day, in the place of Kikianus king of Cush.

 

The Spirit of Balaam desires nothing good for those who of the Lineage of Shem as well as adopted by YAHUVEH / YAHWEH GOD through YAHUSHUA’S Blood.

The Spirit of Balaam the Son of Beor lives on today in various ways. YAH’S TRUE CHILDREN need to ask YAH for HIS continual protection and discernment in this wilderness called earth.

 

Numbers 31:15-17 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

15 Moses said to them, “You let all the women live? 16 Why, they are the ones—because of Balaam’s advice—who caused Bnei-Yisrael to be unfaithful to Adonai in the matter of Peor, so that the plague was on the community of Adonai17 So now, kill all the boys and kill every woman who has been intimate with a man.

Note that all the people who followed Balaam’s advise by sinning with the Children of Israel amongst the Moabites were killed by the Children of Israel. This exactly will be the fate of anyone who has lived on this earth and operates in the Spirit of Balaam.

Joshua 13:15-23 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

Inheritance East of Jordan

15 To the tribe of the children of Reuben according to their clans, Moses gave as 16 their territory: from Aroer on the edge of the Arnon Valley, along with the city in the middle of the valley, and all the tableland up to Medeba, 17 Heshbon and all its towns on the tableland, Dibon, Bamoth-baal, Beth-baal-meon, 18 Jahaz, Kedemoth, Mephaath, 19 Kiriathhaim, Sibmah and Zereth-shahar on the hill of the valley, 20 Beth-peor, the slopes of Pisgah, and Beth-Jeshimoth— 21 all the towns of the tableland and the entire kingdom of King Sihon of the Amorites, who reigned in Heshbon. (Moses defeated him with the chiefs of Midian, Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur and Reba, the princes of Sihon who were living in the land, 22 and Balaam son of Beor the diviner, whom Bnei-Yisrael killed with the sword among the rest of their slain. 23 As for the border of the children of Reuben, the Jordan was their border. This was the inheritance of the children of Reuben according to their clans, the towns and their villages.

 

It is clear from this account from the Book of Joshua 13 that Balaam was killed, that is to say that his flesh body was killed but sadly his spirit lives on ever since. Remember that every man is a spirit. Apostles Peter, Jude and MESSIAH YAHUSHUA all spoke about the Spirit of Balaam in the New Covenant/ Testament.

We are overcomers through YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH’S Blood and Name as seen in Revelation 12:11 and Acts 4:12!

 

Remember that YAH has also given us Ephesians 6 SPIRITUAL WEAPONS to help us overcome Satan and all his evil powers  plus spirits.

As seen in the Teaching called: John 10:10 and 1 Peter 5:8 Explained, we learn that Satan can appear to mankind in any form just to deceive and tempt them all the way to hell, the lake of fire.

However, YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH overcame Satan, his demons/spirits and powers. We too have the ability to do the same. We have RUACH HA KODESH with us here on earth to guide us continually.

 

SHALOM!
