Live with the enemy, die with the enemy.
Live like the enemy, die like the enemy.
"And Samson said, 'Let me die with the Philistines!' And he bent with all his might so that the house fell on the lords and all the people who were in it. So the dead whom he killed at his death were more than those whom he killed in his life."
Samson died with God's enemies, because, Samson lived with God's enemies. He lived like God's enemies. He even betrayed the secrets of God to the enemies of God. It's the same today for Christians. Live with the enemy, die with the enemy.
If he had judged himself, He would not have been judged with the world. This is a principle that is also true today. But Samson's sorrow was over his lost eyes not his lost heart.
1 Corinthians 11:31-32
"But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world."
The great God of gods would not be made a mockery by the gods of the Philistines. At the same time the Holy God judged Samson, He glorified Himself in the death of His weakened and blind servant. Samson's faithlessness became the platform for a great demonstration of God's faithfulness. God would never deny His own name.
2 Timothy 2:13
'If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself."
In one single blow, God disciplined His servant and glorified His own name!
For me to live is Christ.
