Oh Lord, I am so grateful for the words that are written down in the Bible. Each time I open up to read from Your holy book, I am lifted up. I come to learn from You, my God, and my King. People have added to Your Words and they know who they are. These people are guilty and will be judged accordingly. The purity of the words that we have in scripture is able to pierce both body and soul into knowing Your will for mankind. Surely, it comes with much conviction, especially when we are in sin. So Lord, help us grow in the faith and not stay stagnant or rely on others for our faith. Truly, You are the way the truth and life, Jesus. No person will ever go to heaven unless they put their full trust in You. You are the promised Messiah, who came to take away the sins of the world. Thank You, Jesus. Thank You, Lord. Your people are truly blessed above all else. Thankfully, the gentiles now have a portion in Your heavenly home also. We were lost, but then You found us. We were blind, but we can see. You have given us sight. I may not see You now, but I will someday in heaven. I love You, Jesus. I give You glory. Amen.
Numbers 24:14-17 (KJV)
14 And now, behold, I go unto my people: come therefore, and I will advertise thee what this people shall do to thy people in the latter days.
15 And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:
16 He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:
17 I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.
A scepter of righteousness has come from Jacob and into the world. A star has come, which is Jesus, our Messiah.
