Numbers 24:17-19 “I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near . A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel.  He will crush the foreheads of Moab, the skulls of all the sons of Sheth. Edom will be conquered; Seir, his enemy, will be conquered, but Israel will grow strong.  A ruler will come out of Jacob and destroy the survivors of the city.”*

The Scene: The Star of the East, representing the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

*Balaam was a heathen diviner that the Lord used for His own purposes against Balak, the head of the Moabites. “Then he uttered his oracle:  ‘The oracle of Balaam son of Beor, the oracle of one whose eye sees clearly.'” Numbers 24:15

The Star of the East in the oracle of Balaam occurred about 1452 B.C.–spoken as a promise of the coming of the Jewish Messiah. The Star of the East–God’s promise of His coming.  See Matthew 2:1-2.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they might have life and have it to the full.”  John 10:10
