In God’s word in the book of Judges we read of a special man whose name was Samson. This week we will begin to study his life and see the parallels of his life in that of the life of a believer. We can venture into Samson’s life and see the amazing way that God used him and also the mistakes that he made and see just how even in his victories, and in his mistakes God remained faithful. As we study I am seeing myself in Samson and I pray that you will see yourself in him as well in some way and know that his life is recorded to help us in our walks with Christ. We can learn from his downfall and from his triumphs. God is not slack concerning His promises to us. No matter where we go or what we do, God is faithful to those who call upon His name. We will see this special, strong, vibrant man in all his glory, and we will also see him being led captive in defeat by his enemy when he let his guard down but God did not forget Samson, no He did not. God was Faithful to him and Dear One, He is faithful to you and I.
“But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for Himself: The LORD will hear when I call unto Him.”
2 Corinthians 6:17-18
“Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. And I will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.”
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.”
1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”
Author’s Notes: In our last lesson, we saw God continuing to keep His promises to Abraham. We also had an opportunity to see a picture of Christ in the Old Testament sacrifice of Isaac. As we look further into the life of Isaac, today, we will once again see a shadow of things to come, as Abraham selects a bride for his son.
Did you know that God wants only the very best for every part of your life? He wants to be the one supplying everything you need. And that includes your friends! Does God care what kind of friends you have? Yes, He certainly does. Why do you think He cares what kind of friends we have?
The people we spend the most time with are the ones who have the most influence on us. If you ask your parents, they’ll probably tell you that you pick up new habits when you find new friends. Sometimes we start to walk or talk, or even laugh like our friends do.

Horizon Christian Fellowship - San Diego. - Lamentations 3:26,27 It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD.It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is young. Dear brothers and sisters in Jesus,is it fair that we should know sorrow, pain and death? I think my answer would be,"it's not that we are supposed to experience death and pain. It's the wisdom that comes from knowing how good God is, despite our pain and sorrow. Because wisdom and understanding is way more valuable and worthwhile than all the pleasures that are marketed and pushed on us, and believing physical sex and substance abuse and pleasures that we are led to think is normal and real, are good for us. God is real and the sooner we get to know Him, the more peace we will have in the fire and turmoil. Then we can truly enjoy our lives whether in poverty or wealth. Peace or war. Beautiful or not beautiful.. 4/7/2011

This book views the New Testament within the Holy family, clarifying for the reader the time and place relationships among these events, most of which are often studied in isolation from each other in Bible studies. In this way, a reader may already know the stories of Lazarus, Jesus, Herod, etc. but may lack an integrated vision of how these events worked together in time and place. The book's interweaving of events, plus diligent detail in presenting culture and setting, will place a vivid memory of New and Old Testament events in the reader’s mind.
Your kids will delight in the timeless
tales of courage, faith & endurance with characters like Adam & Eve,
Noah, Moses, Abraham, Jesus of Nazareth, and the Apostles.
Our truly unique DVD's bring biblical stories and characters to
life. The Animated Kids Bible will cement their favorite biblical
stories and characters in their memories for all time, by first
entertaining them, and then helping them to develop deeper
understanding and knowledge. Click
