Numbers 24: 9b “Blessed is everyone who blesses you, and cursed is everyone who curses you.” Who spoke these wonderful words? A prophet? A patriarch? No, a diviner, a prophet for profit; whose name, Balaam, means “destroyer of the people.” One of the last acts of Moses was to destroy this charlatan. But you see, like the donkey who had previously spoken to Balaam, God can speak truth through anyone or anything. Truth is truth, no matter the source.
