Preliminary Outline and Progress Chart on
                "The Balaam Doctrine".

I.  Balaam’s Donkey talks to him to prevent Balaam from being killed by the
angel of God, and the historical Old Testament story of Balaam as
recorded in Numbers, chapters 22 and 31.

II.  Deutoronomy 23:4,5:  an Amonote or Moabite up to the tenth
generation of his descendants forbidden to enter the assembly of the
LORD because:  (1) because they did not meet God’s people with bread
and water on the road when they came out of Egyptian bondage; and (2)
and they hired Balaam to curse the children of Israel.
III.  Joshua 13:22:  the children of Israel killed by the sword Balaam of
Beor, the soothsayer before Moses gave to Reuben his inheritance in the

IV.  Joshua 24:9,10:  Balak the king of Moab arose to make war against
Israel, calling for Balaam to curse them; but God would not let him, instead
forcing Balaam to bless Israel by delivering them out of Balak’s hand.

V.  Nehemiah 13:2:  On the day that the assembled people read from the
book of Moses, they found it written that no Ammonite or Moab should
ever enter the assembly of God because they had not meet the children of
Israel with bread and water, and they hired {personal pay and gain for
Balaam} Balaam to curse the children of Israel.  God turned the curse into
a blessing.

VI.  Micah 6:5:  God asks the people what has He done to you, and how
has He wearied you, then among other things reminds them of some of
their past history with Him whereby He “redemned them from the house of
bondage”, also what king Balak counseled against them and what Balaam
answered to the king.

VII.  II Peter 2:15,16.

“They have forsaken the right way and gone astray, following the way of
Balaam the son of Beor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness; but he
was rebuked for his iniquity; a dumb donkey speaking with a man’s voice
restrained the madness of the prophet.”  (II Peter 2:15,16)

VIII.  Jude 11.

“Woe to them!  For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in
the error of Balaam for profit,and  perished in the rebellion of Korah.”  
(Jude 11)

IX.  Revelation 2:14.

“But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who
hold THE DOCTRINE OF BALAAM, who taught Balak to put a stumbling
block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to
commit sexual immorality.”  (Revelation 2:14)
