Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

February 21 - Evening

"While Israel was staying in Shittim, the men began to indulge in sexual immorality with Moabite women, who invited them to the sacrifices to their gods. The people ate the sacrificial meal and bowed down before these gods. So Israel yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor. And the Lord’s anger burned against them.

The Lord said to Moses, “Take all the leaders of these people, kill them and expose them in broad daylight before the Lord, so that the Lord’s fierce anger may turn away from Israel.”

So Moses said to Israel’s judges, “Each of you must put to death those of your people who have yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor.”

- Numbers 25:1-5

Israel Can Not Be Cursed, but They Can Be Punished for Sin    

Balaam could not curse Israel for the Moabites and Midianites, because the Lord had blessed Israel. Instead, Balaam’s prophecies blessed Israel, so King Balak said,

“I summoned you to curse my enemies, but you have blessed them these three times. Now leave at once and go home! I said I would reward you handsomely, but the Lord has kept you from being rewarded.” – Numbers 24:10-11

Balaam could not receive his payment by cursing Israel, but he did do his research and discovered that though Israel had not been cursed by God, they had certainly had their fair share of difficulties including being sentenced to forty years of wandering in the wilderness and among plagues, fires and death they had most recently been attacked by poisonous serpents. Balaam discovered that even though God would not curse the Israelites he would strike them in punishment for sinning against him. The way for Balaam to recover his lost financial compensation was to cause Israel to sin.

Upon Balaam’s advice King Balak sent his Moabite women down among the Israelite men to entice them to engage in immorality and to sacrifice to the Moabite god, the Baal of Peor. As a result the Lord literally commands Moses to “take the leaders of the people and impale them to Yahweh before the sun.” Impaling would be execution by being pierced through with a pole and then suspended on that pole for everyone to see and for the Lord’s judgment to be evident. After the Israelite leaders who allowed this immorality to occur where executed and exposed on a pole, then all the people who “yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor” were killed.

This is the first mention of the god Baal in the Old Testament. Israel would struggle for the next 900 years with their attraction to Baal worship.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Analogia (Gr) – Proportion (Eng) – analogia is a Greek word that means the right relation, result or coincidences in a relationship between two things or facts. Analogia is used by Paul in Romans 12:6 to say that our gifts and faith must be proportion to what God is doing or has given us.
We cannot go beyond what he has done without being out of balance.
Analogia does not mean “equal,” but it means “proportionate.”

  Several samples of the Persian coin from before 333 BC with the inscription YHD, or the Persian name for the province of Judah, have been found. The coin is a silver half gerah with a lily, a symbol of Jerusalem, on the obverse and a falcon (or, an eagle) with the Aramaic letters YHD for Yehud, or Judah, on the reverse.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information

There is always punishment for sin. Paul warns us in Galatians 6:7, "Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows."
Even though I am saved and blessed with all the spiritual blessings in Christ (Eph. 3:1), yet I will live righteously and avoid sin so that I do not come under the Lord's punishment (1 Cor. 11:31-32).

  "Haughty eyes and a
proud heart—

    the unplowed field of the wicked—produce sin."
- Proverbs 21:4
