really good points,Rose. Balaam taught Balak to entice the Israelites through sexual immorality
after the likeness of the pagans worship of theirgod. Balak hired Baalaam tocurse the Israelites
but God wouldn't allow it. So Balaam taught/counseled Balak tolead them into sexual
immorality/idolatry. through Baal of Peor worship.so that God's anger would be roused up....
and 24000 died of the plague .. Idid a study awhileback about BaalofPeor worship..and
read about strippers,eroticdancers[pole] dancing is tied into the worship associated with
Baal of Peor,in ourday.
Hi Shelia ,
For me the eating foods sacrified into idols that also leads to sexual imorality ?
I always think of the children "rose up " to play when Moses was up on the mountain receiving the law written on two tables of Stone by the Finger of God
and think of Jesus being one of those Stones as the law and prophets are the other one
How Jesus is the Stone of stumbling and Rock of offence for those whom believe the LIE and do not take pleasure in the truth
King James Version (KJV)
21 They gave me also gall for my meat;
and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink
22 Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.
23 Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake
King James Version (KJV)
8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.
9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them:
10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway
1 Corinthians 1:23
But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness
Isaiah 8:14 And he shall be for a sanctuary
; but for a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
As it is written, Behold, I lay in Sion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
1 Peter 2:8 And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
we are told to eat His body and drink His blood that we have life in us , we are do this in rememerance of Him till His return
I still belive this judgment will be to the shame of their nakedness/ sins exposed before Him
lots more too , I am in awe!!
