SAMSOM’S RIDDLE REVEALED


“SAMSON’S RIDDLE REVEALED”

Where we last left Samson, his mother had just given birth. Which I explained is an allegory of “christ” being formed In us, and Birthed In us, as everything in scripture is an allegory of you and me! The bible is OUR STORY as much as it is the story of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Ruth, David, Jesus, etc… So when we come across these wonderful stories like the one of Samson, it’s good to ask God to break it down for us so we can better understand what REALLY is going on.

What was the deal with the STRENGTH being in Samson’s hair? Did he really kill the enemy with a jaw bone? Did he really tie a bunch of fox tails together, light them on fire and burn down a harvest, or is this a PARABLE for us to learn from.

Now before you go getting all upset, I’m not saying that these things NEVER LITERALLY HAPPENED, what I’m saying is IT DOESN’T MATTER if they did or not. What matters is what we LEARN from them.

So let’s pick back up at CHAPTER 14 in Judges. Which speaks of Samson’s FIRST MARRIAGE… That’s right, he married TWICE. And yes there is a great reason for this as well.


Judges 14
1 Samson went down to Timnah and saw there a young Philistine woman. 2 When he returned, he said to his father and mother, “I have seen a Philistine woman in Timnah; now get her for me as my wife.”

I want to point out, something many don’t SEE. Samson (a picture of Christ In us) WENT DOWN… he descended, as Christ descended into hell, so we see Samson doing the same. Samson WENT DOWN to TIMNAH which in Hebrew means PORTION. Samson went down for his PORTION (what was rightfully his) and he sees a young PHILISTINE which we now know in Hebrew means immigrant.

Leviticus 25:35
And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.

Now a Philistine would be a stranger and sojourner to Samson and his family. But here we see Samson, went down to FIND THIS BRIDE. As Christ does. So many people get hung up on whether or not a person is of God or not. But all are God’s. Let’s not forget that. Now our ego and our religious upbringing may disagree with this, but God is God of all.


Romans 9:25
As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved
.

You see God has made a new convenant at this point. And Samson is a picture of how this happens. The story of Samson, our story, is all about the inward work. It is how God brings ALL to the knowledge of the truth and the stature of the perfect man.

Jeremiah 31
32Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD: 33But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

Notice, Jeremiah writes ALL people, from the least to the greatest. This is God’s work, and NONE are left out. This is why SAMSON went DOWN, this is why CHRIST (the annointing and higher understanding of God’s truth, the word, the truth) has to descend to RAISE others up out of their own personal hell. And this happens in EACH OF US, when the time is appointed. (which is different for everyone)

3 His father and mother replied, “Isn’t there an acceptable woman among your relatives or among all our people? Must you go to the uncircumcised Philistines to get a wife?”

Now, Samson’s Pop and Mom, could not accept this. They are like those in religion today that think you need to be with those that agree with whatever their creed or doctrine states. This is the same Father and Mother, that didn’t believe it was possible to birth the child of promise to begin with… And who is this FATHER AND MOTHER that is pictured here? What are they an allegory of?

Job 17:14
I have said to corruption, Thou art my father: to the worm, Thou art my mother

Job called his Father and Mother, the very natures that corrupted and tormented him.

Oh I know what you’re saying, we are supposed to honor Mother and Father, well if the Father is God and Mother is Wisdom then yes we must… But in many cases the FATHER is the carnal mind and the Mother is the ignornat soulish ego. And if you have ears to hear this, this is why Christ came to set child against his parents.

Matthew 10:35
For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother

We need to break free from the sins of the OLD MAN and enter into the promise of the NEW MAN. Like our physical parents who also can curse us, by planting doubt and worry in our head, our Egotistical thoughts within, our ignorance and pride will also try and convince us that what we are doing is wrong, when in fact, we are doing right.

This is what is being pictured here with Samson. He is calling those HIS OWN, that were once called enemies. And even though, his parents disagreed strongly with Samson’s choice. Samson, as Christ would do, said…

But Samson said to his father, “Get her for me. She’s the right one for me.” 4 (His parents did not know that this was from the LORD, who was seeking an occasion to confront the Philistines; for at that time they were ruling over Israel.)

Many people will teach you should have nothing to do with those that aren’t of your particular faith. But Samson knew better and the Christ In Us knows better.

Acts 10
11And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending upon him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth: 12Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
13And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat.
14But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean. 11And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending upon him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth: 12Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. 13And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat. 14But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean. 15And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.

Even Peter had a problem with this. He doubted, but God said, EVERYTHING HE HAS MADE IS CLEAN! Don’t call it otherwise. So Samson, like the Christ In Us, forced Mother and Father to do his will… You see even when our carnl mind doesn’t want us to do a certain thing, Christ is stronger than our carnal mind, and HIS WILL IS DONE.


“GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN ME THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD”

5 Samson went down to Timnah together with his father and mother. As they approached the vineyards of Timnah, suddenly a young lion came roaring toward him.

Now when we do the WILL OF GOD, we will find many LIONS coming against us. Roaring and trying to scare us away from our purpose. And what is a YOUNG LION, symbolically mean?

Psalms 17
9From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about. 10They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly. 11They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth; 12Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.

The funny thing about the Lion, in some cases it is the wicked, it is described as satan, and also christ. Indeed a lion is a paradox. But in this case, the LION was standing in the way of SAMSON and his purpose. And we saw what he did.

6 The Spirit of the LORD came upon him in power so that he tore the lion apart with his bare hands as he might have torn a young goat. But he told neither his father nor his mother what he had done. 7 Then he went down and talked with the woman, and he liked her.

You see, there is nothing that can stand between God and his will. It doesn’t matter how many lion’s dens you find yourself in, how many Lions come across your path, Christ is bigger and stronger than them all. And good will always come out of this. When the STRONG MAN (carnal man) of the house is bound, it is then that the Truth can be revealed and found within the House.

8 Some time later, when he went back to marry her, he turned aside to look at the lion’s carcass. In it was a swarm of bees and some honey, 9 which he scooped out with his hands and ate as he went along. When he rejoined his parents, he gave them some, and they too ate it. But he did not tell them that he had taken the honey from the lion’s carcass.

It is odd that a swarm of BEES making HONEY would be found in a LION’S DEAD carcass… unless of course this was an ALLEGORY.

Bees are known in scripture as being something that chases after you and stings you. They are often referred to as ENEMIES.

Psalm 118:12
They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the LORD I will destroy them.

In this carcass of the DEAD LION, in DEATH we find a SWARM OF BEES. Picture this LION as the religious system, it is DEAD, but filled with BEE’S working to make HONEY. Which is symbolic of enlightenment and WISDOM.

1 Samuel 14:29
Then said Jonathan, My father hath troubled the land: see, I pray you, how mine eyes have been enlightened, because I tasted a little of this honey.

Which even in the midst of enemies, even a donkey can speak. Christ can look past the DEAD teaching of RELIGION and reach in there and SCOOP some wisdom out of it. I can’t tell you how many times I am listening to someone on the radio who is teaching something, which I know to be completely wrong, but then I hear something and a LIGHT goes off inside me… And in the midst of those BEES, in the MIDST of that DEATH, there is HONEY! God teaches us in all things. Just listen, and ask God to show you and teach you the truth and you too can find the WISDOM in the midst of DEAD TEACHINGS. And this is what Samson did, he tore down something that would KILL HIM (the law/religious mindset) ripped it in two (the veil) found bees in that DEATH, and still was able to GLEAN HONEY and share it with his MOTHER AND FATHER… As Christ shares wisdom with our soul.

Now here’s the fun part: THE RIDDLE

10 Now his father went down to see the woman. And Samson made a feast there, as was customary for bridegrooms. 11 When he appeared, he was given thirty companions. 12 “Let me tell you a riddle,” Samson said to them. “If you can give me the answer within the seven days of the feast, I will give you thirty linen garments and thirty sets of clothes. 13 If you can’t tell me the answer, you must give me thirty linen garments and thirty sets of clothes.”
“Tell us your riddle,” they said. “Let’s hear it.”

Ever wonder why there was 30 companions, and he gave 7 days to COMPLETE THE WORK of this riddle? At what age, did CHRIST begin his MINISTRY? 30 🙂 … And what is the reward for answering this riddle, new garments.

Ezekiel 44:17
And it shall come to pass, that when they enter in at the gates of the inner court, they shall be clothed with linen garments; and no wool shall come upon them, whiles they minister in the gates of the inner court, and within.

Once you figure out the RIDDLE, after it is complete 7 DAYS, you are allowed to enter into the INNER COURT. This is all an allegory of how Christ brings us into the kingdom. A feast is prepared, and the RIDDLE of life is before us… and what is that RIDDLE?

14 He replied,
“Out of the eater, something to eat;
out of the strong, something sweet.”
For three days they could not give the answer.

15 On the fourth [a] day, they said to Samson’s wife, “Coax your husband into explaining the riddle for us, or we will burn you and your father’s household to death. Did you invite us here to rob us?” 16 Then Samson’s wife threw herself on him, sobbing, “You hate me! You don’t really love me. You’ve given my people a riddle, but you haven’t told me the answer.”
“I haven’t even explained it to my father or mother,” he replied, “so why should I explain it to you?” 17 She cried the whole seven days of the feast. So on the seventh day he finally told her, because she continued to press him. She in turn explained the riddle to her people.

Notice on the 4th day (symbolic of the wilderness journey) the anger, frustration, and threats come. We want to know the MEANING OF THIS. And so Samson’s wife (his body/soul of mankind) pleads until the seventh day… And finally it is revealed. Notice it is REVEALED before the SUN SETS.

18 Before sunset on the seventh day the men of the town said to him,
“What is sweeter than honey?
What is stronger than a lion?”
Samson said to them,
“If you had not plowed with my heifer,
you would not have solved my riddle.”

So now many people would have no clue as to what this means. What the heck kind of an answer to a riddle is another riddle. Well the TRUTH is found, by searching the scriptures to find out WHAT IS SWEETER THAN HONEY and STRONGER than a LION.

Psalm 19:9-11
9The fear of the LORD (BEGINNING OF WISDOM) is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
10More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: SWEETER THANK HONEY and the honeycomb.

Psalm 119:103
How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

That which is sweeter than HONEY, is EVERY WORD AND WISDOM that comes from God. It is the fear of the Lord, it is unity with his spirit. This is the answer TO THE RIDDLE OF LIFE. Even Solomon on his worst day said this in ecclesiates.

Ecclesiastes 12:13
Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

And now unto understanding the second part of this riddle answered riddle. WHAT IS STRONGER THAN A LION?

Hebrews 11:33
Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions.

FAITH, that’s right. That is what is stronger than LIONS. FAITH.

the meaning to LIFE is summed up in SAMSON’S RIDDLE for those who search out the matter. – FAITH, FEAR OF GOD, HEARING GOD, UNDERSTANDING GOD.

This is the COMPLETE WORK that is finished after SEVEN DAYS. When we learn this WE ENTER INTO GOD’S REST.

And at that point out of the EATER (those who eat only) comes meat (they begin to feed) out of the STRONG (proud) comes something sweet. (salvation)

2 Corinthians 2:15
For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:

SAMSON’S BIRTH

THE BIRTH OF SAMSON

Many have heard the story of the strong man Samson, who was raised up as a powerful judge but always had poor choices when it came to women. And like FABIO, lost all his strength when his hair was cut off. For Samson’s strength, much like the model Fabio was indeed his long flowing locks, LOL… In any event much like every story in scripture there is a great hidden truth, and today I hope to share the answer to the “riddle of Samson” as well as also solving the literal riddle he put forth.

So the best place to start is the beginning, so let’s Rock and Roll.

Judges 13
And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD; and the LORD delivered them into the hand of the Philistines forty years.

Let’s start by looking at something that is often overlooked. ISRAEL has children. Many read this and think of a literal land, but this is allegory. The Children of Israel, were born of Israel… And who is ISRAEL?

Hosea 11:1
When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt.

ISRAEL is another name for CHRIST (son of God) – This is the second name given to Jacob, and the second Adam. This is MANKIND’S second nature. The word ISRAEL in HEBREW means “God prevails”. Which is simply understood when you consider what God must prevail over… THE WORLD (Man’s Lusts and Carnal Nature)

So the CHILDREN of Israel, were people who once knew God and the Truth of God, but strayed. So God hands them over to the Philistines forty years.

There is that number again 40. 40 years in the desert wandering, 40 days in the wilderness, 40 less one stripe, David is king at 40, and now prisoners to the Philistines for 40 YEARS…. Forty being symbolic of a GESTATION period, ABOUT FORTY WEEKS to give birth, 3, a Tri-mester…

Now what many fail to see is that this allegorical telling of Israel being made captive to the Philistines, is actually our story as well before we are delivered. You’d be surprised to find out what the country of Philistia means “land of sojourners”. God gave us over to wandering without a true understanding of who we are, and who God is. Because ISRAEL’s children (REMEMBER all things were made by Christ, for Christ, through Christ) – we are all CHILDREN OF THE MOST HIGH, but here we see that ISRAEL’S CHILDREN are ignorant in ADAMIC THINKING = EVIL.

Psalm 52:3
Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousnes

To follow after EVIL is to follow a lie. Look, this whole thing called life is about resurrecting the TRUTH from the LIES we have believed about ourselves and others.

Let’s continue:

Judges 13:2
And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren, and bare not.

Now Manoah (Samson’s Father) was from the Danites lineage. “Dan” in hebrew means “JUDGE”. Manoah in Hebrew means “REST” – Which is a great picture of where God wants us all to be, at REST. But his wife was BARREN.

Now, the BARREN WOMB is a picture of our soul, before the TRUTH (CHRIST) has been birthed in us. The WIFE is always a picture of MANKINDS SOUL, remember we are the BRIDE OF CHRIST. Christ is the HEAD, THE RULE AND AUTHORITY of his WIFE (our soul/who we believe ourselves to be) – But the TWO must become ONE to give birth to the NEW CREATION, where there is no longer HUSBAND (CHRIST) and WIFE (SOUL) but we too BECOME CHRIST revealed in the FLESH.

The SPIRIT of God and the SOUL of Man, must become one. The SOUL is formed first (The first man was made a living soul). The second Man is made a quikening spirit. In the GARDEN the TWO were ONE, but were seperated, now when they come together again, the WIFE (SOUL) becomes subject to her HUSBAND (CHRIST) and the ELDER serves the YOUNGER. The NEW CREATION (Christ in You) rules. (Okay that may be too much for some, but it gets easier I promise)

So Manoah’s wife was BARREN … UNTIL…. she meets GOD’S MESSENGER. Some translations call this an ANGEL, but an ANGEL simply means “envoy, messenger, message” etc…

Judges 13:3
And the angel of the LORD appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son.

Now we know this is not some winged creature, not just because of the literal translation, but because of a couple of verses later…

Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, A MAN OF GOD came unto me, and his countenance was like the countenance of an angel (MESSENGER) of God

But let’s put that aside for a second. This is MESSENGER OF GOD that visits the BARREN woman. Now no one can get pregnant unless a SEED is planted, RIGHT?


Luke 8:11
Now the parable is this: The SEED is the WORD (TRUTH) OF GOD.

The WIFE (SOUL OF MAN) is only BARREN until it recieves the TRUTH of God. And of course, this is what the MESSENGER OF GOD brings, the WORD (Truth). Once the Truth is HEARD, that which is BARREN, is BARREN no more. This is of course if it is planted on good ground. And of course any WIFE to MANOAH (rest) is good ground.

Now the MESSENGER warns her…

Judges 13:4
Now therefore beware, I pray thee, and drink not wine nor strong drink, and eat not any unclean thing:

When we first come to the knowledge of the truth, it is so very important to stay away from the lies of religion and the world. Otherwise that SEED that is growing inside of us, can become corrupted by what we believe. Remember the parable of the sower, if the seed falls on the wrong ground, it can be killed.

So the MESSENGER says stay away from wine, strong drink, and unclean food. – Let’s see what these are ALLEGORIES of, to see if they line up to what I just wrote.

Proverbs 20:1
Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

Wine and Strong Drink is a symbol of deciet, lies.

Isaiah 5:21-23
21Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 22Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:

WINE and STRONG DRINK are also compared to being proud and wise in your own understanding. Which we are commanded NEVER TO LEAN ON.


Micah 2:11
If a man walking in the spirit and falsehood do lie, saying, I will prophesy unto thee of wine and of strong drink; he shall even be the prophet of this people.

The Messenger of God delivers the TRUTH and warns the WIFE (US) that we are to stay away from lies, pride, falsehood etc… basically, stay away from BABYLON PEOPLE, get out of the RELIGIOUS MINDSET and move unto perfection. But the MESSENGER also says not to EAT any unclean thing.

Now you’d be surprised to find out what the UNCLEAN thing she is told not to EAT (become one with/assimilate)

Haggai 2:13-15
13Then said Haggai, If one that is unclean by a dead body touch any of these, shall it be unclean? And the priests answered and said, It shall be unclean. 14Then answered Haggai, and said, So is this people, and so is this nation before me, saith the LORD; and so is every work of their hands; and that which they offer there is unclean.

DEATH is unclean… To be CARNALLY MINDED is DEATH, relying on your OWN WORKS is DEATH and considered unclean.

When the TRUTH OF GOD is spoken to our hearts. We are warned to stay away from the lies of the world and religion and NOT TO RELY on our DEAD WORKS. We are told we must put our trust in GOD, and GOD alone.

Now look, being pregnant with the possiblity of giving birth to that CHILD OF PROMISE (WE BECOME THE BEW CREATION) is exciting, but it is also a very crucial time for our spiritual development. As a child will believe any and every little lie they are told, so a child of ISRAEL may do the same if not careful. So we see this MESSENGER warning Manoah’s wife TO STEER CLEAR… As I do to those I speak with.

Once that seed is sown, lots of things want to strangle it away. Thorns – Cares of the World, Ravenous Birds – Carnal Thoughts, and you get my meaning. There is a lot that stands in the way of our excepting the truth of who we are IN CHRIST, because to do this, that means we must DENY WHO WE THINK WE ARE… Which LITERALLY means we have to admit “JACOB” is not real, does not exist… ONLY ISRAEL EXISTS.

Our LIFE is hid IN (with/by) CHRIST (spirit of God)

The UNCLEAN things of this world PRODUCE DEATH, and it spreads like poison IVY. Think of the rumor mill. One person tells one person something terrible about another person, and that person who hears this has a EVIL seed planted in his heart about that “other” person, regardless of if it is true or not.

So, this is why when the MESSENGERS of GOD come and tell us “YOU WILL GIVE BIRTH TO CHRIST, you will REVEAL CHRIST” – it is so very important NOT TO LISTEN to anyone else who will say different.

There is BUT ONE hope of Glory, and that is CHRIST IN YOU… Which is sort of the ANSWER to Samson’s riddle.

Judges 14:14
And he said unto them, Out of the eater came forth meat, and out of the strong came forth sweetness. And they could not in three days expound the riddle.

But we’ll get to that later. Back to Manoah and his wife.

So, the Messenger of God speaks to Manoah, and he and his wife enter into an angreement that these things be true. That indeed this BARREN WIFE of his will give birth. This is an agreement our intellect and spirit enter into together… the two in fact become ONE with this agreement, that indeed it is GOING TO HAPPEN, CHRIST IN US IS THE HOPE OF GLORY.

Now, Manoah does something very hospitable here, he invites the MESSENGER to stay.

Judges 13:15
And Manoah said unto the angel of the LORD, I pray thee, let us detain thee, until we shall have made ready a kid for thee.

Isn’t that just like the ignorant. Thinking we can DETAIN the word of God. Believing we MUST do something to SAY “THANKS”…. At this point in our walks we are still so steeped in our work mentality that we feel we MUST HOLD BACK that MESSENGER until we follow the LAW. But the Messenger was all like, NAH! Don’t want what you’re serving, but if I have to stay, and you have to sacrafice, do it to GOD not to me.

Judges 13:16
And the angel of the LORD said unto Manoah, Though thou detain me, I will not eat of thy bread: and if thou wilt offer a burnt offering, thou must offer it unto the LORD. For Manoah knew not that he was an angel of the LORD.

You see, the BREAD is the understanding they had at that moment. There is no LIFE in what they believed or served, the LIFE was given by the MESSENGER. Jesus said, the MEAT that I have is to do the WILL OF GOD… We’re not talking about literal bread here.

When someone with understanding shares with someone who does not. The one that does not, ALWAYS wants to share back. But those who know the TRUTH of God, will NEVER eat what they are serving. They cannot. They understand to start eating that DEAD BREAD again, would mean, it’s back to the cross for them.

Hebrew 6
4For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame

Then Manoah, like most of us who hear NEW THINGS from the KINGDOM, wanted to KNOW THE NAME (nature) of the messenger of God. “Who are you?”

And the MESSENGER REPLIES…

Judges 13:8
And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Why askest thou thus after my name, seeing it is secret?

And what is the SECRET NAME that this ANGEL (MESSENGER) was holding back? You see, if the Messenger of God revealed who HE really was… Manoah and His Wife might have backslidden. The True NATURE of Christ in man, cannot be understood by bthe BARREN, they cannot know the TRUTH of God, until the CHRIST is REVEALED (birthed) from within. This is why his name was SECRET. The WORD secret in the hebrew means “wonderful, incomprehensible, extraordinary” — In other words, they wouldn’t understand the NATURE (NAME) of this great MESSAGE God was delivering them even if the MESSENGER came right out and told them. BABY STEPS PEOPLE.

Proverbs 11:12-14
12He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace. 13A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.

You go to someone who is immature in the faith, and you basically tell them the LIBERTY you have in CHRIST and they will not only hate you and attack you, you will cause them to stumble. That is why it is always best to give the MESSAGE you are sent to give and keep the rest back, until they are ready.

Hebrews 5:12
For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.

Then they sacrafice the Kid, the Flame (sword) goes up to heaven, and the Angel (Messenger/message) ascends with it. This Messenger of God was taken out of MANOAH and his Wife SIGHT (Understanding)

Now listen, this is a wonderful telling of how we recieve revelation from God, we desperately want it to stay with us so we can learn more, but them POOF, it’s gone as quickly as it came. And this is what this story is trying to tell us.

Jesus comes (revealed) – the TRUTH of God is revealed LIKE LIGHTNING from heaven… in Spurts of BRIGHT POWERFUL LIGHT, but it doesn’t stick around for long… But it comes and comes and comes, until that CHILD OF PROMISE IS BORN, meaning UNTIL YOU BECOME GOD’S CHILD (born again).

Now Manoah, thought he had somehow gotten God all upset, because the MESSENGER was now gone. (how many of us do the same thing when the drought comes) – We think, oh darn it, I messed up… I’ve gotten to close to God (Manoah said he saw God’s face and worried now he would DIE)

We worry about the same thing. We think, Oh, I have gotten too close, puffed up with pride, and now the MESSENGER OF GOD (Thoughts of Truth) is GONE, and I will surely become CARNAL AGAIN (dead) – But Manoah’s wife assures him.

But his wife said unto him, If the LORD were pleased to kill us, he would not have received a burnt offering and a meat offering at our hands, neither would he have shewed us all these things, nor would as at this time have told us such things as these.

We have to remember that if God wanted us IGNORANT, he wouldn’t be feeding us, and leading us, like a child through life until the CHRIST (WHO IS OUR TRUE SPIRIT) is RESURRECTED from within. We have to have faith that…

“He who began this good work in us, will complete it until the DAY OR THE LORD”

And the good news is….

Judges 13:24
And the woman bare a son, and called his name Samson: and the child grew, and the LORD blessed him.

SAMSON – which in Hebrew means “Who is like the SUN/SON”

1 John 4:4
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.


“As he (Christ) is in this world SO ARE WE.”

This is the good news, so even if you feel barren like your circumstances are hopeless and beyond repair. God has a purpose and plan. The Truth will be revealed to you, and you like Manoah and His Wife will be given instruction to stay away from the lies of this world, so you can OVERCOME THE WORLD and the LUSTS THERE OF.

God will will be done, ON EARTH (our soul) as it is in HEAVEN (GOD’S TRUTH AND RULE)…

SAMSON’S STORY CONTINUES AT A LATER DATE. In the meantime, don’t get down on yourself if revelation isn’t hitting you left and right. Don’t believe you have to do more, or be more, for God to spark the CHRIST to LIFE within you… All you need to do is MARRY MANOAH (enter into the REST of God, and know that HE IS IN CONTROL)

Peace to you and yours,
Jacob
