Do you think Balaam will be in heaven? Here is a bried synopsis of his Scriptural record and why I would say "probably yes": Numbers 22:8 - Balaam said that God (YHWH) would speak to him as His messenger Numbers 22:9 - God spoke to Balaam Numbers 22:13 - Balaam rejects offer to curse, saying God had directed him not to. He obeyed the Word of the Lord. Numbers 22:18 - Balaam refuses huge payment because he would not go against the 'Word of the Lord MY God'. Numbers 22:20 - God again speaks to Balaam. Numbers 22:31 - When God revealed Himself to Balaam (after the donkey incident!) Balaam bowed before God and fell down on his face. Numbers 22:32 - God condemned Balaam because he was rash in his action ('perverse' in AV) Numbers 22:34 - Balaam repents of his rashness. Yep. Repented. Numbers 23:4 - God met Balaam and was pleased with his offerings Numbers 23:7-11 - Balaam blesses the Israelis as God's people Numbers 23:19-24 - Balaam blesses Israel again (some really great verses about God and his sovereignty) Numbers 24:2 - Spirit of God comes upon Balaam (Spirit came and left men until Pentecost; now we have indwelling, PTL) Numbers 24:16 - Balaam heard the Word from the Lord and knew the Lord. Numbers 31:8 - Balaam is killed by the Israeli army of conquest Numbers 31:16 - Balaam's wrong counsel is condemned. Joshua 13:22 - Balaam is called a "diviner" or soothsayer, making a living by telling the future Deuteronomy 23:4-5/Joshua 24:9-10/Nehemiah 13:2 - Balaam's faithfulness in proclaiming the message of the Lord instead of cursing Israel Micah 6:5 - People are to remember the righteous words of Balaam Jude 11 speaks about avoiding the error of Balaam Jesus in Revelation 2 warns the church about the doctrine of Balaam ~~~~~~~~~ Your thoughts?
