your nest is set in a rock;
yet you Kenites will be destroyed
when Ashur takes you captive.” Numbers 24:22
Balaam cursed a man, not the church itself.
Someone once asked: do we, in knowledge, experience, or profession excel Balaam?
"Simple dependence on the Redeemer's atoning blood and sanctifying grace, cheerful submission to the Providential hand, and constant endeavors to glorify God and benefit His People, these are less splendid but far more excellent gifts, and always accompany salvation... . The feeblest believer has something of them, and is daily praying for more of them."
That's it. Daily praying for more of Him. He must increase; I must decrease.
