    One of the questions for this chapter was how many times did Balaam bless Isreal. The answer that comes up is 4, but in chapter 24, vs10 it says he blessed them these three times. Please check on this and make the necessary correction for the answer.

    "How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, whom the LORD hath not defied? For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations." Israel wears the garments of her widowhood among the Nations, and her enemies mark her sins against the LORD; but God will save Israel before all!
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    We must keep remembering that "God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?" We must keep trusting God and believing that if we stay at the centre of His will, He will do what He says He will do in our life.

    Numbers 23:19 prevents an heart attack in me every time the evil one hurls his spear of the fear of death at me, for God has promised me long life and welbeing in Ephessians 6:1-3.

    whatever God has blessed its blessed indeed, satan and his agents can try to curse it but they won 't succeed. they will end up knowing that Jehovah is God and He is above everything.
