In this podcast I continue talking about the deliverers of Israel. With each person, I try to draw out lessons we can learn from their lives and also show how God used them to represent Jesus. Our deliverer for the day will be Samson. You can find his story in the book of Judges, chapters 13-16. Here we have another example of what not to do, yet God used him. In fact, God chose him before he had a chance to do anything right or wrong, announcing his birth with an angelic visit.
When the Holy Spirit enabled Samson, he was probably the strongest man who ever live, yet in terms of character, he was one of the weakest. It seems like God went through every possible flaw a man could have in the people he chose, but He used them all to accomplish His purpose. Listen as we learn about the strong deliverer and see why Jesus is the only one who could truly deliver.
