Samson’s death

Hello, God has given me something in Judges 16:29 which says, “Then Samson reached toward to two central pillars on which the temple stood. Bracing himself against them, his right hand on one and his left hand on the other.”

I’m also going to look at Judges 16: and the first part of 30, which says, “Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!”

So what God has given me, is that Samson’s death, is just like Jesus’ death on the cross, where He took away our sin, and let us be pure. And the reason that Samson’s death is like Jesus’ death, is because first of all, he put his hands out, extending his arms so that it would look something like a cross, and when Jesus died, He died on the cross, putting His arms out that way (His hands were nailed out). And the second reason, is because Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!”, and the Philistines were Samson’s enemies, just like we were God’s “enemies”, not that He fought us, we fought Him, and Jesus died with us (because we were in Him). So Samson died with his arms outstretched, and Jesus died with His arms outstretched, also Samson died with His enemies, the Philistines, and Jesus died with His “enemies”, us.

Also, Samson’s birth was like Jesus’ birth because in Judges 13:3 which says, “The angel of the Lord appeared to her and said, “You are sterile and childless, but you are going to conceive and have a son.”

Also in Judges it  13:4-5 applies so Judges 13:4-5 says, “Now see to it that you drink no wine or other fermented drink and that you do not eat anything unclean, because you will conceive and give birth to a son. No razor may be used on his head, because the boy is to be a Nazarite, set apart to God from birth, and he will begin the deliverance of Israel from the hand of the Philistines.”

So, at Jesus’ birth and angel of the Lord told mary that Jesus would save the world, and at Samson’s birth, an angel of the Lord told Manoah’s wife that Samson would “Begin the deliverance of Israel.
