Part 6: The Spirit Of The Lord Is Patient
In the name of Almighty God, Master of the universe Ruler of all the earth
Editors Note: Brethren, we bear witness that many are lost and filled with the wicked and vile sentiments of Satan. As mis-education looms in our schools, so do the pagans in the seminaries come distorting the Bible? However, those that fall for Satan and the Delilahs of the world, holding onto Jezebel put woman, man and material things before God. But who will be at the Judgment the Last and Final Day calling out the names of the good and the evil?
Peace be unto you. To the Church and believing Christians everywhere. To those that believe in the Bible as the supreme authority that governs all of humankind. In this we give thanks to God the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit that leads and guides us the straightway.
Beloved as we continue to bring Samson up for review and love, we continue at Judges 14 and the 6th verse. Here we want to talk more about the Spirit. Realizing that the Spirit is the power of God and that God is patient with those who he bestows the Spirit upon. So before we discuss the details of the marriage to the Philistine woman and how this affair impacts on love look with us to verse 6.
Judges 14: 6: “And the spirit of the Lord came mightily upon him, and he rent him as he would have rent a kid, and he had nothing in his hand: but he told not his father or his mother what he had done.”
While Samson and his parents were on the way to Timnath to attend to the matter of engaging the Philistine woman as a wife something happened. While he was temporarily out of the presence of his parents a young lion approached him and he killed it with his bare hands.
Did this act reveal to Samson that God had sent him on a special mission? Was Samson more involved in his personal affairs than those of God? Turn with us over to I Samuel for another look at the patience of the Spirit. David kills Goliath. Also, the Bible tells us that Goliath was a Philistine and the enemy of God’s people. However, David was small man compared to Goliath and not blessed with supernatural strength. This story is told at I Samuel 17. The bracket of scriptures 32-58 tells us about the killing of Goliath. Although we suggest that you read and study the entire chapter we will refer to the following verses.
I Samuel 17: 32-36: “And David said to Saul, Let no man’s heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine.”
“And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth.”
“And David said unto Saul, Thou servant kept his father’s sheep, and then came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:”
“And I went out after him, and smote him and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him.”
“Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.”
It is no doubt that the Lord placed his Spirit upon David. Thus he had the victory. What is most important here? Still the Philistines who Samson had not destroyed were still the enemy of God’s people. This enmity against God was just reason for God to give him the victory.
Failed Seductions Of The Ungodly
I heard something always in mind body
and soul telling me that the ways of
the pagan seductress was ungodly.
The talk did not match the walk.
Which way did Samson look?
He only looked down at self and
not up with God. He also could
see, but passion blinded him as sure,
As the Philistines would later blind him
literally in both eyes. But do you need
eyes to really see God? Can you see
with your heart as the Spirit moves?
John came thinking with his heart mind
and soul. He thought; poor brother Samson
thought only with a lower part of his body
His brains failed as brawn raised up.
Surely passion would die in a fit of ecstasy
and lust. But the love of God was Spirit
bound to Peace and Golden Paradise.
Here passion equaled compassion.
