As was typical of the people of God then again doing evil, again Samson is where he does not belong. This behavior reaches its climax in the house of Delilah as she finds the source of his strength and removes it
Samson returns for his wife only to find that she has been given to another. Enraged, he sets the fields and groves of the Philistines on fire, causing the Philistines to retaliate, yet Samson slew them by God’s strength.
Samson disregarded the explicit command of God for His people to not marry unbelievers. On his way to make marriage arrangements he faced a lion, later deceivers, which lead to his killing of Philistine men.
God showed Paul the apostle “how many things he must suffer” for Christ (Ac 9:16). The apostles work was built upon knowledge of Scripture opened to them to teach others from the Scripture, even in terrible times.
The announcement of Samson’s birth to righteous parents marks and exciting beginning to the life of God’s strongman. With such a remarkable beginning we come to hope for a glorious ending but it would not to be.
