Lesson points:

Revenge, revenge, revenge! Samson’s commission from God was to cause havoc among the wicked Philistines and he certainly fulfilled his calling! They called Samson ‘the destroyer of our country’. The circumstances in Samson’s life that were negative were used by Samson to bring about victory. Firstly: he returned to his wife’s father with a gift of a kid goat, but he had given her to Samson’s best man as he thought he didn’t want his daughter. In response Samson collects 300 foxes, pairs them up and sets fire to their tails. The result when they ran to the fields was the destruction of the Philistine crops, vineyards and olives. (Spiritual application: We often assume that Samson was merely a warrior with ‘limited intelligence’ - this is not the case! He had amazing organizational skills, his riddle was clever, and although quick to anger, he displays a sensitive heart - we must be careful not to judge anyone). Secondly: with their crops devastated, Samson’s wife and her father were taken out and burned by his enemies which fueled a deep rage within Samson - in v8 he smote the Philistine with a ‘great slaughter’ before climbing to the rock Etam to be alone. It is sad that 3000 of his own people - men of Judah, came to arrest him instead of help him. On their promise not to kill him, Samson submits, was bound and handed over to the Philistines. Thirdly: Samson breaks loose, picks up a jawbone and with the Spirit of the Lord on his side, mightily slays 1000 men! After the battle he asked God if he was going to let him die of thirst - God answered and (like he did for Moses) provided water from a rock - endorsing Samson as the rightful judge of Israel. He would continue to judge for 20 years. (Spiritual application: It is encouraging that God was willing to use Samson despite the failures that he is often remembered for. Samson received no help from his own people, but continued to serve God alone. His name is recorded in Hebrew 11 alongside the great heroes of Faith!)
