“The Evil ‘Good’ Man”

Numbers 22:1-22a


I. Why would many in the world call Balaam a “good” man?

1) He had a reputation as a man of God. Vs. 6

2) He was a man of prayer. Vs. 8, Vs.7

3) God did speak to him. Vs. 9 & 23:5

4) Balaam did tell Balak what God had said. Vs. 13

5)He refused to change God’s Word. Vs. 15- 18, Vs. 38, 23:3, 23:26, & 4 more times.

II. Why Balaam was evil in the sight of God. Vs. 7, 24:1, & Deuteronomy 18:10

1) He was a prophet for money. Vs. 7 A hireling John 10:12-13

2) He knew God’s Word and disobeyed it. Vs. 12 & Vs. 20-21, Vs. 19, 24:1

3) He perverted God’s people with false doctrine. Numbers 31:16, Revelation 2:14

It does not matter what the world thinks of us. What does God know? 31:8
