A Vision of Christ

Numbers 24:17

A great preacher from a couple of centuries ago began his sermon on this text by saying “Jesus is here sweetly preached—but from a heart, which never loved Him, and by lips, which never more shall praise Him.” Truth was etched upon Balaam’s mind but it never gripped and subdued his heart! Though this pagan was led to speak in the most exalted terms about Christ, his heart never loved Him or nor did he fix faith upon Him. This message seeks to renew faith in Christ by pointing faith to look unto Him cloaked in His kingly and saving glory as He is set forth in prophecy here in Numbers 24:17.
