Finding it, and passing it on to you.

Balaam had a little ass...

...a servant of the Lord,

And when the prophet went astray,

The ass rebuked the bard.



To prove that we are on biblical ground... here is the story from the King James Bible with the Bible text in red and my uninspired thoughts in brackets . --

Numbers 22:1 And the children of Israel set forward, and pitched in the plains of Moab on this side Jordan by Jericho.
2 And Balak the son of Zippor saw all that Israel had done to the Amorites.
3 And Moab was sore afraid of the people, because they were many: and Moab was distressed because of the children of Israel.

Moab was the son of Lot by incest with his daughter-- Here is the fruit of strong drink and lust.  Would you expect a prophet of God to join in "ecumenical unity" with such a one as Balak?

4 And Moab said unto the elders of Midian, Now shall this company lick up all that are round about us, as the ox licketh up the grass of the field. And Balak the son of Zippor was king of the Moabites at that time.
5 He sent messengers therefore unto Balaam the son of Beor to Pethor, which is by the river of the land of the children of his people, to call him, saying, Behold, there is a people come out from Egypt: behold, they cover the face of the earth, and they abide over against me:
6 Come now therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people; for they are too mighty for me: peradventure I shall prevail, that we may smite them, and that I may drive them out of the land: for I wot that he whom thou blessest is blessed, and he whom thou cursest is cursed.

Whenever a sinner (in this case, Israel) escapes from the Egypt, or sin, to The Lord Jesus Christ, the devil's crowd calls up a scummy washed out preacher to curse and distract the new saint-- A classic example is the infiltration of Bible believing churches by Opus Dei, the Pope's Storm Troopers for the 90s.

7 And the elders of Moab and the elders of Midian departed with the rewards of divination in their hand; and they came unto Balaam, and spake unto him the words of Balak.

When a preacher cuts a deal with God-haters like Caesar, Pat Robertson, or TBN, he has in his hand "the rewards of divination."  Such is the case with Tony Campolo, Bill Clinton's buddy at large, and with Cardinal Jack Van Impe, ambassador to Fundamentalists for Pope John Paul II.

8 And he said unto them, Lodge here this night, and I will bring you word again, as the LORD shall speak unto me: and the princes of Moab abode with Balaam.
9 And God came unto Balaam, and said, What men are these with thee?
10 And Balaam said unto God, Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, hath sent unto me, saying,
11 Behold, there is a people come out of Egypt, which covereth the face of the earth: come now, curse me them; peradventure I shall be able to overcome them, and drive them out.

Note that Balaam promised these wicked ones that he would get them revelation from Jehovah.  Then he tried to hide from God the identity of Israel by not naming them-- playing dumb.  So much like the dumb foxes at Bob Jones University, eh?

12 And God said unto Balaam, Thou shalt not go with them; thou shalt not curse the people: for they are blessed.
13 And Balaam rose up in the morning, and said unto the princes of Balak, Get you into your land: for the LORD refuseth to give me leave to go with you.
14 And the princes of Moab rose up, and they went unto Balak, and said, Balaam refuseth to come with us.
15 And Balak sent yet again princes, more, and more honourable than they.

Jack Van Impe, Billy Graham, and Peter LeLonde at first rejected Rome and the Pope.  They have been begged over and over to "not go with them."  But then "more honorable men" came along and flattered these spiritually "bastard" children, and they grabbed the candy and danced for the Papal Piper.  

Hebrews 12:6 "For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.  7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?  8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons."  Those are BASTARDS who go to fornicate with the Roman Whore and are not chastised severely.
16 And they came to Balaam, and said to him, Thus saith Balak the son of Zippor, Let nothing, I pray thee, hinder thee from coming unto me:
17 For I will promote thee unto very great honour, and I will do whatsoever thou sayest unto me: come therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people.

And so it is today.  The church down the block with its mealie-mouthed mumbling muppet-headed preacher will raise you to "very great honor" if you will just come along to the next ministerial "fellowship" and give the devotional.  Paul Appalling Crouch will raise you to world fame if you will kiss the ring of the Pope.

18 And Balaam answered and said unto the servants of Balak, If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the word of the LORD my God, to do less or more.

Such zeal.  He sounds like a rip-snorting Fundamental Baptist, right?  Watch out, some of these preachers are all gas and no guts-- "all squeal and no bacon" (Spurgeon).

19 Now therefore, I pray you, tarry ye also here this night, that I may know what the LORD will say unto me more.

Oh yes!  Did the Lord tell him what to do the first time?  YES.  But Balaam thought he could get God to re-negotiate the Word of revelation.  Are you inviting the scholars, preserved unto God's wrath, to "tarry here this night" in your home or pulpit?  "Better rendering" coming soon, right?  Must be some vindication in the NIV or RSV. 

20 And God came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him, If the men come to call thee, rise up, and go with them; but yet the word which I shall say unto thee, that shalt thou do.
21 And Balaam rose up in the morning, and saddled his ass, and went with the princes of Moab.

 Does it say in vs. 21 that the men called Balaam? NO!  Balaam went anyway.  So, today pastors and Bible teachers all over the world are rising up early and going with the devil's agents.

22 And God's anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him.

Jack Van Impe rides along on the backs of faithful supporting saints, accompanied by his two servants Pope John Paul II and Paul Crouch, all the while quoting the King James Bible, and headed to deceive the saints.  One thing we can say for Balaam though-- At least he didn't have his wife there fawning over him, like....                

"O, Balaam, I'm so amazed at your great wisdom, what a mighty prophet you are, we have a video of  your wise words for the folks, dear Balaam, for just $25 shekels, etc, etc, uuuurp."  "Sho nuf, Rex Allah?"  There are many other examples of this process in our world today.

23 And the ass saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way.

Here is where we get our biblical foundation for this journal.  We can see the Lord, and we love His sword, The King James Bible. We want to obey The Lord, so we turn away from rebellion.  For that, we get a thrashing from the great prophets, trusted "scholars," and Nicolaitan potentates.  Praise God, what a blessed thrashing.   Lay it on harder you bumbling blasphemers. Benny Gehanna Hinn says he would like to get a machine gun and kill us all.  It may come sooner than we think if we don't talk back pretty soon... oops, I gave away the rest...

24 But the angel of the LORD stood in a path of the vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side.
25 And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam's foot against the wall: and he smote her again.

If they are going to beat us, we have permission here to at least crush their foot.  Maim them a bit to see if we can slow them down.  Make a scourge of thongs (not a bull whip), and beat them charitably about the spiritual head and chest.  Overturn (pull down) their money tables.

26 And the angel of the LORD went further, and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left.

The Angel of the Lord is Jesus Christ in the Old Testament, and here He takes His stand on the Narrow Way.  In the Gospels, He then taught this as an absolute requirement for obedience (Matthew 7:14).  The Narrow Way today is mocked and degraded by the TBN crowd, Promise Keepers, and many so-called Fundamentalists-- like the GARBC, Sword of the Lord, BBF, and IFCA boys who have no stomach to resist their milk-toast leaders to the face, like Paul withstood Peter.

27 And when the ass saw the angel of the LORD, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam's anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with staff.

The dirty dogs of the devil who have climbed on our backs are a burden too heavy to bear.  The "staff" reminds me of the staff, or faculty, of every seminary in the world which smite their students until they submit to their doubts and damnations.  Then the "staff" of the ordination committee approves the broken victim and sends him out under threat of defrocking if he ever resists their "staff."  Example:  The Bob Jones I, II, and III Gestapo and Dallas Seminary.

28 And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?
29 And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee.

Now, isn't that a flip-- The first case of speaking in tongues.  That donkey only knew Hee Hawes.  When God opened her mouth to speak in a tongue she didn't know, why the Hee Haw speaker spoke perfect Hebrew.   Right here we settle the "sign" of tongues-- It is to give understanding to someone who doesn't speak the listener's native tongue.

Also amazing!  These thousands of years later, Panosian, Custer, Rushdoony, the Manifest Sons of God, the Mormons, Benny Hinn, Paul Crouch, Siliven, and many more have said the very same words of Bible believers.   When we call them back to the King James Bible plus nothing, they accuse us of mocking them.  People are funny aren't they.

30 And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto thee? And he said, Nay.

This journal, BLESSED QUIETNESS JOURNAL, is here to speak back to the Balaams of this age.  We may crush their foot, but we have no lust to kill them, as they lust to kill us.  99% of them need to be born again, for they have never repented unto Salvation.  Killing them, or finally damning them, leaves them no opportunity to repent and be saved.  So, we call to them to listen to the Lord Jesus Christ, and they thump us regularly.  Let's not give up. There are those rare cases of saints and sinners who repent.  

31 Then the LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.

They have never seen the Lord.  They are NOT saved.  Get it straight, friend, it is very uncharitable to accept the profession of a hell-bound sinner who is not serious.  In doing so, you just give him comfort on his way to hell. TALK BACK !!! You may be the only voice of the Lord he will ever hear.

By the way, you Charismatic fakirs, who teach your people to fall on their backsides before God-- "slain in the spirit..." You are falling the way men fall before Satan.  Why?  Answer: You  are not even Balaams-- twice damned, you worship, face up and unconscious, at the feet of Lucifer himself.

32 And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to withstand thee, because thy way is perverse before me:

He is a pervert.  Let's get it straight friend, these Balaams of our day are ALL perverted.  Many of the "best" of them are sexually perverted, in adultery, and sodomites.  The Balaam of Hammond, Indiana preaches a sermon called "Merits and Demerits" in which he claims that a preacher can arrogantly go into adultery.  God has to keep using him though, because this adulterer has gone door to door so much for the Lord that this Balaam is just too valuable to discipline.  He also teaches his college victims a class in restoring adulterous preachers. Do you suppose....... ? Oh, never mind.

These Balaams also love to twist and pervert the Word of the Lord-- they are the peddlers of these profane copyrighted funny books (Captain Marvel) called the New International Version, NASB, and the Living Bible.

33 And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times: unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive.

Who does Jesus favor?  You, jack ass!!! IF, that is, IF- IF- IF you are a hard nosed, narrow minded, brittle brained, knee jerk Bible bigot, and I say that charitably of course.  I may have understated the thing.  :-)

34 And Balaam said unto the angel of the LORD, I have sinned; for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore, if it displease thee, I will get me back again.

"If it displeaseth thee... !!!"  Oh, how humble!  So caring!  So loving!  So precious!  So nice!  So...   BUNK!!  What a jerk!  To say that to God the Son...  "Some noive," as the New Joisey Bible bigots say.

35 And the angel of the LORD said unto Balaam, Go with the men: but only the word that I shall speak unto thee, that thou shalt speak. So Balaam went with the princes of Balak.

As you recall, Balaam went, and God prevented him from cursing Israel.  But did that cure the rebel prophet? Not a chance.  We read in

Revelation 2:14 (Christ speaking to one of the churches in Asia Minor), "But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication."

Some time after the event in Numbers, Balaam found a way to cause Israel to backslide, and they were punished by Jehovah for it.  What did Balaam think up?  Answer:  Eat things dedicated to idols.  Today, the saints are being invited back to Rome.  Many already are eating the cannibalistic corpse of the Mass, the ultimate blasphemy, and Monsignor Jack Van Impe, The Archbishop of Canterbury, and Cardinal Billy Graham are pimping ("buggering" in the UK) on the street corner-- inviting more saints into the Whore Church.

Balaam also taught Israel to commit fornication.  Again, TBN, Pat Robertson, Schuyler, Swindol, MacArthur, Masters, BJU, Biola, Edinburgh, AIM, SIM, OMF, OM, and many more, are teaching the saints to mutilate the Word of God and fornicate away the precious doctrines of separation, salvation by Grace alone, the Blood of Christ at work right now, and the absolute authority of the English Bible, King James Version.  We believe that God uses the ordinary Jack Asses of this world to talk back to these spiritual fornicators.

Again, for Americans who are having problems with "Jack Ass,"  we mean ONLY a donkey, as the English and most of the rest of the world use it. 

In this journal, we hope to show you these whore-preachers for what they are.  If that's too strong for you, well then, may I ask you, "Are you sure you are born again?"
