Judges 16:15-30 KJV

“And she said unto him, How canst thou say, I love thee, when thine heart is not with me? thou hast mocked me these three times, and hast not told me wherein they great strength lieth. And it came to pass, when she pressed him daily with her words, and urged him, so that his soul was vexed unto death; That he told her all his heart, and said unto her, There hath not come a razor upon mine head; for I have been a Nazarite unto God from my mother’s womb: if I be shaven, then my strength will go from me, and I shall become weak, and be like any other man. And when Delilah saw that he had told her all his heart, she sent and called for the lords of the Philistines, saying, Come up this once, for he hath shewed me all his heart. Then the lords of the Philistines came up unto her, and brought money in their hand. And she made him sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him. And she said, The Philistines be upon thee, Samson. And he awoke out of his sleep, and said, I will go out as at other times before, and shake myself. And he wist not that the Lord was departed from him. But the Philistines took him, and put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza, and bound him with fetters of brass; and he did grind in the prison house. Howbeit the hair of his head began to grow again after he was shaven. Then the lords of the Philistines gathered them together for to offer a great sacrifice unto Dagon their god, and to rejoice: for they said, Our god hath delivered Samson our enemy into our hand. And when the people saw him, they praised their god: for they said, Our god hath delivered into our hands our enemy, and the destroyer of our country, which slew many of us. And it came to pass, when their hearts were merry, that they said, Call for Samson, that he may make us sport. And they called for Samson out of the prison house; and he made them sport: and they set him between the pillars. And Samson said unto the lad that held him by the hand, Suffer me that I may feel the pillars whereupon the house standeth, that I may lean upon them. Now the house was full of men and women; and all the lords of the Philistines were there; and there were upon the roof about three thousand men and women, that beheld while Samson made sport. And Samson called unto the Lord, and said, O Lord God, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O God, that I may be at once avenged of the Philistines for my two eyes. And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars upon which the house stood, and on which it was borne up, of the one with his right hand, and of the other with his left. And Samson said, Let me die with the Philistines. and he bowed himself with all his might; and the house fell upon the lords, and upon all the people that were therein. So the dead which he slew at his death were more than they which he slew in his life.”

To describe this action plan properly, we must understand how Sampson acted in the Bible. Sampson was betrayed by Delilah, his hair was cut off, he lost all his powers and was tied to the pillars of the temple where he was to be put to death. During this time, the pagan high priest did not notice that Sampson's hair had grown back. Sampson asked if all of the leadership and the temple elders were there and he was told yes. Since he was to die anyway, he then chose to pull down the pillars of the temple, thereby killing everybody in it including himself.

Israel, for many years, had a plan that they will deny exists. Because of the callousness of the non-Jewish people all through history, most especially the Holocaust, the Hebrews as a people and Israel as a nation chose that they would never go into darkness alone again. The basic plan is that when all is lost and the whole world turns from Israel, as they are in their last gasp, they shall not die alone but will unleash their entire arsenal against the enemies of Israel so that the enemies of Israel shall perish. I cannot tell you that this is in place today but it did exist at one point in time.

But, let us not forget, as you read this, that our true Samson plan is not to bring our enemies into death but into life through salvation and the fullness, power, and awareness of the one true living God through our Messiah Yeshua.

My dear Brothers and Sisters,

I wish to thank you all for the questions, answers and statements you sent me after the recent Desk of the Rabbi prayer alert. It is always interesting to me that people think that prophecy is something that comes true only in the way that we understand it. When I send you some information and ask you to pray, it is to pray for the mitigation of God’s will. It is my blessing that what did occur on the ninth of AV was not violent, with no great disasters. I believe that this occurred because of the mitigating prayer.

It is also my blessing that some of you had sent additional information to me so that I may enter it in to my prayer time as additional information which may help to direct and guide that which God would have us do.

I am watching, over the last two days, areas in governments around the United States and the world begin to move in the direction that is required for the fulfillment of the prophecy that all the world will turn against Israel. I have heard both Congressman and so called experts say that if the problem between the Palestinians and Israel would go away, Al Qaeda would no longer have a focal point to recruit terrorists. This is probably the single most idiotic thing I have ever heard. This “new” war against democracy actually began in the 1920s, led by the Muslim brotherhood, and has continued on and off to this very day. From them has sprung almost all of the other terrorists and ideologically militant forms of Islam. The religious advisor or head of bin Laden was from the Muslim brotherhood.

When I say that we need to pray, its that something is about to happen and we need to mitigate it. Our desire is not to change God's will but to bring his mercy into our presence. So, as we watch together, the events in the world take place, ever growing and expanding. We must ask the Lord to be as merciful, and kind as he can and will be in order to line up with the fulfillment of his word. We must know that it is our job to stand as warriors for the truth, to be the light in the world and to bring Gods knowledge and power.

I can only tell you that war is eminent - that the people in charge of governments today are there not only because of their strength but also because of their weaknesses. When the disasters begin, we must be the ones who will go into that darkness and destruction and speak the truth and power of God and bring HIS light.

More specific information will be following very soon on what is going on, day by day, in the world. Please pray for us as we travel to Jamaica to take part in the consecration and dedication of pastors from 15 churches and stand with the Bishop to bless them.

Blessings on to all of you, may the Lord bless you and keep you, may His countenance shine upon you and bring you peace in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

In Service to the King,
Rabbi Moshe Laurie

~ MIDEAST UPDATE ~

I come to you this day with an update of the great and terrible day of the Lord. As I have said, this is a great day for the believer - a terrible day for the unbeliever and a worse day for the make-believer as all around us evil is coming against good and good is triumphing over evil. Look at what's going on in Gaza. Look at what's happening in England. You are required to pray and to believe if you believe that this is the great and terrible day of the Lord. You need to make sure that you are truly a believer in the one true living God through the Messiah. And, in believing in the Messiah, believing also in His promises in His word in the Bible.

Terrible things just happened in England, but they could have been very much worse. If you remember the teachings that we have been showing in our TV shows, you will remember it is the mitigation that was necessary to prevent the car bombs that were set, from going off. The crashing into the buildings could have caused many deaths in the worldly sense. You see, a syringe didn’t work and the igniter didn't work so the cell phones could not ignite the bomb.

But what happened really?

It is the mitigating power of God, because the faithful prayed and believed. We cannot change what God has ordained this day. But what we are capable of doing is praying and being faithful to God's command to stand against evil and to be the light of the world. It is past time to bring the light. We must become the light. You may ask yourself how can you become the light of the world. How can you know what to do to be obedient to God's Word. You must read the Word and do the work. You must become the voice in your wilderness - never mind going around trying to save the whole world. You must bring the truth where ever you are.

I want to thank those of you who have been faithfully watching our show. And those of you who have asked and received the information from us. Also, those of you who have begun teaching this word. We all only have the ability which God gives us this day, please use that ability.

If any of you have any specific questions about what is going on in the politics and society of today or any other Bible questions that are pertinent for today, please feel free to send it to deskoftheRabbi@aol.com and I will do the best I can to answer you. We have upgraded our technology, and if it continues and I believe it will, we will be able to send out more of From the Desk of the Rabbi.

It is my personal opinion, and that which I have received, I believe, from the Lord, that what is going on in the Mideast at this moment in Gaza and in the surrounding countries is nothing but a ploy to lead up to an open war between Islam, the Arab nations and democracy. Syria opened the roads between the border of Israel and Syria. Syria has removed all of the roadblocks between Damascus and the Israeli Syrian border and has allowed civilians to enter into the area even though the peace treaty that was made, these many 30 plus years ago, forbids any civilian entry into that area. It is still a demilitarized zone but this is to allow terrorists to enter into Israel with out accepting responsibility. Israel will not buy it and will respond to the threats and attacks. Syria has also moved 3 miles into Lebanon and set up weapons trenches and gun emplacements. Iran has now entered troops into Gaza, into Jordan and has just parachuted suicide troops into southern Iraq. In Iraq the Shiite Muslims in Basra are taking control of the oil fields and are turning from the Iraqi central Government in order to create a separate calfate with the backing of other Arab states.

I have just received word from England that ever since we brought the words of prophecy concerning impending disasters to England (July 7, 05), the believers have been praying without ceasing. They believe the mitigating power of God prevented the bombs from going off in London and the Glasgow and prevented untold death and destruction

You say to yourself, what does this all mean? It means that that which we have spoken of is about to happen and it is up to you to stand to pray and bring the truth to all who will listen. Especially those in churches who say they are believers yet buy into the false teachings of Islam and other evils of this day. I call upon you all to go forth and speak the truth as you know it.

~ BREAKING NEWS ~

Abbas, the President of the Palestinian Authority, is double dealing. On one hand, he has turned to the West and Israel to support him again Hamas, while at the same time, has authorized secret talks with Hamas in Stockholm under the guiding hands of Iranian and Saudi ambassadors. Hamas sent the Chief Operations officer from Damascus to sit with the PLO ambassador in Sweden. This meeting took place Sunday, July 8, 07 in Stockholm. The USA, EU and our national news have said nothing about this. More to come.

I'm going to keep this very short. I want to remind you again, please feel free to e-mail us or call or write to ask questions that you would like us to answer. I will be sending this out more often. I feel so strongly at this time that terrible things are about to happen. Unless we pray that mitigating powerful faith prayer, terrible, terrible things will be happening with no response from the believers. I want to thank you all for your support and for your prayers, and for your viewership.

Bless you all. May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you. May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.

In Service to the King,

Rabbi Moshe Laurie
