Battleground Earth 20: Samson 4 - David Mitts

"Then it came about on the fourth day that they said to Samson's wife, "Entice your husband, so that he will tell us the riddle, or we will burn you and your father's house with fire. Have you invited us to impoverish us? Is this not so?""   Jdg  14:15 (NASB)   Click here to listen to “ Samson 4 ” Samson, the 12 th  judge in the book of Judges  is our picture of God’s justice in unjust times that show us the kingdom in manifestation . Last chapter we look at the foundation stone of love  and the beginning of the role of betrayal in the government of God.  When I am using the term “government” , I am not thinking of it in terms of an organizational structure, like the government of the United States of the Communist Chinese  Party government structures.

Isaac also makes a covenant with the  Philistines  in Genesis 26. God honors these ancient agreements and the  Philistines  are left off the list of nations that Israel is to displace when they enter into the Land of

And I did not ask him where he came from, nor did he tell me his  name. ( Jdg  13:6) Click here to listen to " Samson 2 " We began last week to look at the judge Samson . Samson was born of a divine encounter with his mother who was a barren wom an.  "There was a certain man of  Zorah , of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah; and his wife was barren and had borne no children. Then the angel of the LORD appeared to the woman and said to her, "Behold now, you are barren and have borne no children, but you shall conceive and give birth to a son. "Now therefore, be careful not to drink wine or strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing. "For behold, you shall conceive and give birth to a son, and no razor shall come upon his head, for the boy shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb; and he shall b
