Samson’s Riddle PDF Print E-mail

The Deliverance of Israel

Many stories in the Bible are allegories of the gospel or types of the Messiah and His deliverance. The story of Samson (Judges 13-17) and the riddle that he proposed is no exception, being an allegory of the finished work of the cross – salvation. At first glance, its reference to the Gospel is not clear.

“Out of the eater came something to eat, and out of the strong came something sweet.” (Judges 14:14)

To understand the riddle, it is important to know what was happening in Israel during the time the story of Samson was penned. The Book of Judges records the period when there was no king in Israel and everyone “did what was right in his own eyes”. It was often tumultuous because the Philistines had dominion over Israel. They had done evil in the sight of the L-rd, and G-d delivered them into the hand of the Philistines for forty years. Then, the L-rd sought an occasion to come against the Philistines (Judges 14:4) in order to set Israel free from their oppressive rule. He chose a family from the tribe of Dan to prepare a son for this purpose.

G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, we are coming to you on behalf of Your covenant land and Your covenant people, Israel. Father, You have said that You will not break Your covenant nor alter the thing that is gone out of your lips. You have given to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and their descendants the land of Israel, and we declare that no other nation has any rightful claim to possess that which You have sworn to Your people. We declare that no weapon formed against Israel, the land or its people, shall prosper. We pray for your mercy upon the enemies of Israel because truly they do not know that they are touching the apple of Your eye.

Brother Leo lives in a beachfront community in Australia where they have a 'floating' population so that his witnessing tracts are always 'fresh'. He has numerous opportunities to speak to the many young backpackers from around the world as they wait for their next coaches to take them along their way. Brother Leo reflects on the fact that attitudes are changing among those he encounters. While some are still receptive to the Light of G-d's Word many are no longer interested and turn down the tracts offered them. He witnesses locally every morning to those to whom the L-rd guides him and the then brings them before the L-rd afterwards in prayer. 

As a result of his regular, determined witness, the L-rd has opened many doors to Brother Leo. His ministry always bears fruit in the hearts of those that receive him. He says his greatest joy is that he will be able to see all those to whom he has witnessed rejoicing in the L-rd forever and ever [in Eternity].

The Times and the Seasons That Lay Ahead

December 11, 2017

The times that lay ahead are going to be very terrible. The L-rd will protect all who belong to Him during the time that will soon be here. Many miraculous signs will appear in the sky. The Powers of Darkness will perform many miracles to fool all who do not know our precious L-rd Jesus as their Savior and they all will be lost.

During this time the L-rd will do many miracles through His Church and the Church will do mighty works to glorify the L-rd. Those days are almost upon us when many will wake up to the time at hand and come to the L-rd to receive Him as their Savior. Those who belong to our precious L-rd Jesus will purify themselves and walk in the guidance of the L-rd through this terrible time.  –Brother Leo
