WHEN DONKEYS HAVE BETTER VISION THAN PREACHERS?

VISION BEYOND SIGHT

By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com

I do this in a two part sermon.

WHEN DONKEYS HAVE BETTER VISION THAN PREACHERS?

Numbers 22:21-34 And Balaam rose up in the morning, and saddled his ass, and went with the princes of Moab.

22: And God’s anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the Lord stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his

ass, and his two servants were with him.

23: And the ass saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and the ass turned aside out of the way, and went into the

field: and Balaam smote the ass, to turn her into the way.

24: But the angel of the Lord stood in a path of the vineyards, a wall being on this side, and a wall on that side.

25: And when the ass saw the angel of the Lord, she thrust herself unto the wall, and crushed Balaam’s foot againt the wall: and he smote her again.

26: And the angel of the Lord went further, and stood in a narrow place, where was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left.

27: And when the ass saw the angel of the Lord, she fell down under Balaam: and Balaam’s anger was kindled, and he smote the ass with a staff.

28: And the Lord opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?

29: And Balaam said unto the ass, Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee.

30: And the ass said unto Balaam, Am not I thine ass, upon which thou hast ridden ever since I was thine unto this day? was I ever wont to do so unto

thee? And he said, Nay.

31: Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the

Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.

32: And the angel of the Lord said unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten thine ass these three times? behold, I went out to withstand thee, because

thy way is perverse before me:

33: And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times: unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive.

34: And Balaam said unto the angel of the Lord, I have sinned; for I knew not that thou stoodest in the way against me: now therefore, if it displease thee, I will get me back again.

TEXT:

Acts 3:1 Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being t

he ninth hour.

2: and a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they

laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered

into the temple:

3: Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.

4: And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.

5: And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.

6: Then Peter said, silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: in the name

of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

7: And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up and immediately his feet and ankle

bones received strength.

8: And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into

the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

9: And all the people saw him walking and praising God.

10: And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful Gate

of the temple; and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened

unto him.

11: And as the lame man which was healed held Peter and John, all the people ran together

unto them in the porch that is called Solomon’s, greatly wondering.

12: And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, ye men of Israel, why marvel ye

at this? Or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had

made this man to walk?
