Judges (Program #6) – The Miserable History of Israel’s Forsaking God (5)
In the varied history of the nation of Israel that is recorded in the book of Judges, we have of course the interesting and well known story of Samson. Endued with the power of the Spirit, he was mighty and fierce in his struggle against Israel’s enemy the Philistines but he had a very specific failure that gave Satan, God’s real enemy the ground to tempt him and and ultimately defeated him. Of course the beautiful Philistines woman, Delilah typifies this failure. Samson indulgence of the lust of his flesh led to his down fall. The story of Samson and the warning that we as God’s people today must take from this case is our topic on this life study of the Bible.
