Balak was the king of Moab, and the meaning of his name was waste or lay waste. It also means devastator; a destroyer, an emptier.

That is to say according to his name and his deed, it can  be concluded that he was a man who lay to waste and destroy anyone that stands on his way with evil jealously.

You will remember that the city called Moab came to existence through immorality and an incest committed by the eldest daughter of Lot, the nephew of Abraham. See Genesis 19:30-38.

So, it wasn’t a surprise that Balak was their king. Frightened by the king of the lands of the Amorite and Bashan, the king of Moab and Midian are implacable foes for many generations, and they united for the common purpose of attacking the Israelites.

Balak the new king of Moab had been put in charge of the plans. He decided that the only way to destroy the victorious Jews was to outdo them in magic by a spell stronger than theirs. This made Barak therefore sent messenger to Balaam, the greatest magician and also a powerful soothsayer of those days, asking him to come over  to Moab in order to curse the Israelites, whom he said were threatening to overthrow their lands.

At last, Balaam got there, but instead for him to curse them as agreed, it was blessings, he was blessing the children of Israel, saying, “how can I curse whom God has not cursed?” See Numbers 23:8.

By this, Balak was really angry and he ordered Balaam to return home. But before he left, he told Balak that the only way to harm the Israelites was to seduce them into sin, for then will God punish His people.

Later on, the king of Moab and Midian acted upon this shrewd advise of Balaam. And many among the children of Israel fell for this, and it caused thousands of the Israelites to die.

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
