Playing with the Anointing

This was when he began to play with the

anointing on his life. It is so dangerous to play with the

anointing of God. He delivered himself into the hands of

the Philistines, then broke the cords easily. He was

mocking them, but in reality, he was setting himself up

for his final undoing. He began to compromise what he

believed. Many people compromise what they believe in

order to be accepted.

 

Samson had a great anointing, but he played the

fool and lost the anointing. Samson got to the place in his

life that he thought he could do anything he wanted and

get away with it. I’m convinced that men of God get to

that place because of what God’s doing in the ministry.

 

Because of the anointing, the signs, the wonders, and the

miracles, they get into the place where they think, I can

do anything I want.

 

And if that’s so for the men and women of God,

how much is it for everyone in the Body of Christ? God

blesses them just a little bit and they get to the place

where they think, I can do whatever I want. No, you

can’t. Your life is not your own. You don’t belong to you.

You belong to the Most High God.

 

Then went Samson to Gaza, and saw there an harlot,

and went in unto her.

 

And it was told the Gazites, saying, Samson is come

hither. And they compassed him in, and laid wait for

him all night in the gate of the city, and were quiet all

night, saying, In the morning, when it is day, we shall

kill him.

 

And Samson lay till midnight, and arose at midnight,

and took the doors of the gate of the city, and the two

posts, and went away with them, bar and all, and put

them upon his shoulders, and carried them up to the

top of an hill that is before Hebron.

Judges 16:1-3

 

The Prostitute and the Gates

 

The walls of some of the cities in those days were

so wide, they could ride six or eight chariots on the top of

them. So you can imagine how big the gates of the city

were. This man has just been with a prostitute. He gets up

out of bed, takes the city gates, and walks away with

them. He says, “I’ll show you. You lie in wait for me. I’m

going to take your gates away.”

 

And it came to pass afterward, that he loved a woman

in the valley of Sorek whose name was Delilah.

 

And the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and

said unto her, Entice him …

Judges 16:4, 5

 

You see that’s what the devil wants to do to you

He wants to entice you. He wants to draw you. He wants

to lure you. He wants to get you to that place of

compromise so that at your weakest time, he can destroy

you.

 

Entice him, and see wherein his great strength lieth

(find out what the key is), and by what means we may

prevail against him, that we may bind him to afflict

him: and we will give thee every one of us eleven

hundred pieces of silver.

Judges 16:5
