THE BOOK OF JUDGES. Samson’s Victorious Death.

Samson, day after day continued his imprisoned existence, working tediously at the prison mill, pushing in circles the heavy machinery at the strength of an ordinary man, with absolutely no sight!!

His whole body was wracked with pain.

One thing that the Philistines forgot to check, was his hair! So at about the rate of about a half an inch a month it grew and grew, unnoticed in the dark prison yard.

There came a day when the Lords of the Philistines gathered to offer a great sacrifice to their God DAGON.

His name meant (little fish) representing the reproductive powers of nature. (a fish could reproduce 100,000 eggs anually.) He was the god who brought increase to the Philistine number of people.

And when they were drunk and merry hearted, they said, “Let’s call Samson out to entertain us,” They amusing themselves, taunted him, and gave praise to Dagon saying,

“OUR GOD HAS DELIVERED OUR ENEMY TO US! THE ONE WHO KILLED SO MANY, IS NOW IN OUR POWER”

The people roared and Samson could feel the hot air of their roar upon his flesh.
Then they placed him where everyone could see, those on the ground, those in the balconies and those high upon the roof tops.

Samson said to the lad that was leading him, “Son, place my hands upon the pillars that the whole house leans upon.”

There were at least 3,000 officials, the Lords with their families and all those who could squeeze into the temple, the place was packed with Philistines.

Then Samson lifted his eyes toward the Lord, then secured his hands on the two main pillars, then earnestly prayed ..

Lord God, please remember me and strengthen me, that I may pay back the Phillistines this once, for the loss of my two eyes.

The lad did as he requested.

“He slowly used all his weight and leaned with all his might against them ..

The Strength of God surged through his whole body, and the whole building shifted and cracked and a deep rumbling permeated the atmosphere.

The Lord had heard his desperate prayer and his mighty – strength – returned!!

This reminds me of the verse written in the Psalms.

“THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH AND MY SONG. HE HAS BECOME MY SALVATION”

This promise is for you my dear reader..to encourage you in difficult times.

Phil 4:13. is a truth waiting for you to claim, when things things are insurmountable and beyond your natural strength. Jesus gives you supernatural strength.

“HIS STRENGTH!” is made perfect in our utter weakness.

“I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST,WHO STREGTHENS ME.”Phil 4:13.

NEXT IN OUR TRUE STORY…. THERE WAS SHEER PANIC!!!

The horrific sounds of screaming people were heard from a far distance, coupled with the horrific sounds of cracking, and crunching of the temple.

The whole building began to collapse, as the pillars holding the huge house broke into pieces and gave way.

Above the confusion of panic and cries for help, Samson shouted finally …

“LORD, LET ME DIE WITH THE PHILISTINES!!”

The whole temple fell on every person in it, including himself!

So he killed more people when he died, than he had in his lifetime!

God can always use us despite our flaws. He can still use you if you as Samson return to Him with all your heart.

Note..

There are times when God removes His protection from you, especially when you knowingly and willingly choose to sin. He does not forsake you, but He stands back and waits until you call upon him for Mercy, Truth and Forgiveness, and then He will deliver you.

Samson’s strength did not lie in his hair alone, it was a token of his vow to God from whom he drew his strength.

This was a Divine act of the Holy Spirit which came upon him, see Chapter 13:25, and 15:14.
Coupled with his faith, the Lord heard and answered his prayers. Read Heb 11:32-40.

Repentace is the only way to approach a Holy Righteous God. Be honest with God. “Lord You are right! …. I am so wrong.”

“WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL UPON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE… SAVED!!” (DELIVERED)

Why don’t you pray this Prayer..

“Lord Jesus, l am a sinner, l have not listened to you and now l am in this mess!! Thankyou for shedding your blood on the cross of Calvary.”

“Forgive me Lord and come into my life. Please forgive me now and save my soul.”

“I surrender everything to you. Please fill me with your Holy Spirit to empower me to live for you.” Please turn my circumstances for your good Roms 8:28.

Thankyou Jesus you gave your life for me that I truly may live.”

Amen.
