Juntti: Samson and America – the similarities

Time changes NOTHING. NO matter the date of the original publication of that which follows – as with many of Granny’s posts – nothing really changes. Hopefully you are reading this for the first – or 50th time – and it finally sinks in.

Samson and Delilah, by Rubens

August 1, 2012 ~ America was a very strong country – similar to the strength of Samson in the Bible. Samson was the strongest person on earth – all due to his God given strength.

America, like Samson, allowed Delilah (the ENEMY WITHIN) to beguile and to rob that strength by deceiving Samson with things that are against God’s Word.

As long as Samson kept his covenant with God and obeyed God he was filled with that superhuman strength. – As long as America and Americans worshipped God and obeyed His word America was strong, healthy and prosperous. Then The People began to look at other things not of God – to participate in things that were an abomination to God. They listened to the lies of the ENEMY WITHIN, they began to rely on *government* (Dagon) to provide them with monthly checks and food stamps and housing and that free sex, drugs, alcohol could be *enjoyed* without punishment.

They were blinded, like Samson, to the reality of what they were/are doing. They turned from being industrious, hard working, honest, God worshipping People and they lost their Strength and became a debtor nation with little industry to support their People. They have to IMPORT clothing – food – and anything else they need in everyday life. Totally DEPENDENT upon the ENEMY to provide for their needs. Had they remained true to God they wouldn’t have been in this mess but they forgot WHO they owed that long ago healthy, wealthy, nation. They are now slaves in their own country.

There is only ONE thing that Americans can do to reverse what is happening – only ONE thing and that is true Spiritual REVIVAL – a return to God, the Creator. Survival of America depends completely upon REVIVAL of Americans…. – REVIVAL = SURVIVAL. Failure to accomplish that means a repeat of what happened to the Philistines and their god, Dagon and that Temple they built for Dagon. America under the OCCUPATION FORCE and the ENEMY WITHIN (SATAN) has become the modern day Temple of Dagon….. and it will fall just as it did way back then when Samson took hold of the two pillars and brought it down.

America’s downfall was straying from God just as Samson’s downfall was his straying from God.

The Bible records that Samson broke all of his Nazarite vows. He drank wine, he ate grapes, he touched a dead body and he did not dedicate himself totally to the Lord God. When he touched a dead body he found honey in the dead body of a lion. He scooped out the honey and ate some of it then took the rest of the honey to his parents without telling them where he had gotten it.

Samson’s great weakness was beautiful women. Samson fell in love with a beautiful Philistine woman named Delilah. Night after night he visited her residence to spend hours with her. He thought that he was hopelessly in love with her because of her great beauty and charm.

Delilah had been promised a great sum of money from the Philistines if she could discover the secret of his incredible strength. Every day Delilah teased and begged Samson to tell her the secret of his tremendous strength. To get her to stop begging him on several different occasions he told her false things that would destroy his strength He told her, “If you tie me with seven bowstrings I will lose my power.”

Key Concepts:

1. God answers prayer when He sees that we are earnest in our prayers and that we will use the victory we receive in prayer for the good of us, our families and for God’s kingdom.

2. When we have sinned and have fallen away from the will of God He will forgive us for those sins if we are sincere and confess those sins. If we have meant the prayer God will not only forgive us, but He will find a way to use us again for the good of the people and of God’s kingdom.

3. If we believe strongly in God and ask for good things to happen, even when it seems that very bad things happen they can be turned around and be used for good. This can happen if we confess to God and ask God to let good come from a bad situation.

4. Even when it seems that we have been waiting much too long for an answer to our prayers we need to be patient and wait for the answer to come.

Look around this nation today at all that is going on – then look at HISTORY of the many nations that came before us and how they fell into destruction. Ignoring that only leads to another repeat of history. Why not CHANGE your life now and place your HOPE in God?

Faith is believing in what is true. Faith has two elements: 1) being convinced of the truth, being certain of reality, having evidence of unseen things, and 2) believing, hoping in, embracing, seizing the truth.

Heb 11:1 (KJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

    People don’t want to hear that. They act like what is wrong with our country is akin to a problem with the engine in their car. They thing by going down to the voting booth and changing a few ‘parts’ they can fix what is wrong in America.

    Your option requires that they themselves do something, and that entail work and responsibility. They don’t like that.

    you are absolutely right, Neal, but it is upon the record of those of us who KNOW this to keep telling the Story – over and over because we never know when one of those who have had their ears plugged will suddenly have their ears opened and HEAR what we are saying. We can’t hammer the information or knowledge into anyone – we must keep saying it though as we never know when one of those may actually open their eyes and ears to TRUTH and change their lives. If we don’t, who will?

    Most times folks don’t think of maintaining their cars until the car quiets running – by then it is too late to do much and the COST to do so is many times out of their financial reach. Perhaps they would be SAVED had they heard someone telling them they should change the oil and filters to keep things running…. Also, putting gasoline in the tank rather than sugar makes a difference as well.

    Dirty pagan Jews did this. But, then again, they did the same thing to Christ. Go figure. If you still trust the Zionist(read Jew)Bankers, you deserve the Hell on Earth they have planned for you. “It was for Freedom, that Christ sacrificed his earthly life!” Do not forget!!

      O boy just cannot pass this one up. Man Hippy you are barking against Zionism on the wrong site please pedal that anti-Semite crap elsewhere.

      J.D. Longstreet begs to differ with you hippy and he has a slot as a contributing author on this site so his views are i would think much closer to the host views than yours (though i am certainly surprised and saddened at this revelation…how about you?)

      Here’s JD’s take on the Jews of Israel and their relationship to the US.

      “Romney and Netanyahu know each other,. Many years ago they worked together in a firm in Boston. If Romney is elected, and Netanyahu remains Prime Minister of Israel, look for things to change in the US relationship with Israel. That would be a good thing.”

      “When a nation turns its back on Israel bad things happen to that nation. It is a promise, or a curse, as old as the founding of the Hebrew people. When one considers Obama’s shunning of Israel and the problems visited on the US since, can anyone really doubt the veracity of that promise?”

      Now that’s just from an article still current on this site.
      I challenge you to do some research on ole JD see if you like any of what you find but i digress.

      I’m so sorry but Christ is going to do nothing in the material/physical world. Christ is only concerned with Spirit and has already done all he is ever going to do for you in that regard.(sorry you missed it)
      If you are looking for a material/physical manifestation to take place here on earth (thousand year reign of Christ on Earth) you my friend have been deceived by Saul of Tarsus and the Judeo-Christan wholesale mixing of Christianity and Mithraism later reinforced and even more basterdized by Constantine and are blind as a bat. believers have no useful knowledge whatsoever just a product of the religion machine that spits out nonthinking idiots to go and spew lies and hate cloaked as love and tolerance throughout the world.

        You are sadly mislead. The infestation of Palestine has no relationship with the God of our fathers. Christ himself told us in the 8th chapter of John who the false ones were. They have not changed. They are the same ones who told Pilot…”We have no king but Ceasar!” Those are your chosen ones. I choose King Jesus!

      2. hippybiker

        Let me further add. Like i give a Rats ass what you think of me. I’m a citizen(read armed)not a sick little subject like you. Crawl back into your hole and bury yourself….Putz!

        1. Motomojo

          Ahhhh there it is.
          I just love it when intellect runs out and all that is left is childish
          name calling and temper tantrums.

          And i agree you are truly a “Citizen”.

    Cripes! I wrote that first thing this morning when I was still half zombie. I can’t believe I made so many grammatical errors in 4 sentences. I am ashamed.

  5. Ed

    Love it, born again for 35 years….GOD IS THE ANSWER. Narrow is the way that leads
    to eternal life. Most people are blind and cannot see…..

    As old Paul Harvey would say…Here’s the rest of the story or in this case the real story.

    Samson is the great warrior, powerful and invincible, until a woman, Delilah, cuts his hair. It has been recognized for centuries that Samson is a sun god or solar hero and that Delilah is the moon goddess absorbing his solar rays.

    As an example of how a sun god has been turned into an Israelite hero we can cite the story of Samson, written ????? Shimshown, the first three letters and root of which are ??? or shemesh/shamash, the Semitic word for “sun” and name for the sun god. Indeed, Samson’s name means “like the sun,” and his story possesses a number of solar and soli-lunar elements, such as the tearing down of the two pillars of the temple, a solar motif likewise found in the myth of Hercules or Herakles, as is the tale of a lion killed by the hero’s bare hands. Another soli-lunar motif is the loss of strength when the sun god or solar hero’s “hair” is cut by the moon goddess, symbolizing the moon absorbing (and reflecting) the sun’s rays.

    In reality, there is no reason to believe that Samson was a “historical” figure but every reason to aver that he is a typical solar hero or sun god, the Jewish version of Hercules, reworked to revolve around the “chosen people.”
