When most teachers speak of Samson, they focus their teaching on his hair. But another feature to note is his eyes, for, like Eve in Genesis 3:6, Samson's eyes had been deceived by the Devil, and the eye that offended (Mk 9:47), the eye that did not see the Devil's leer behind Delilah's smile, had to be plucked out (Mk 9:47) in order for Samson to obtain his victory over the Devil's camp (Judg 16:28). Delilah's deliciously demonic smile, the captivating and illicit glance of the wanton woman (Prov 6:25), would ironically defeat the strong man and not only defeat but actually take Samson away from G-d's people in a Golus that would drag him captive to the Philistines. And these Delilah eyes of demonic entrapment would also carry with them an exorbatant pay-per-view price-tag, costing Samson all that the eye can see. In the same way, Eve did not notice the price-tag on the alluring piece of fruit from the forbidden tree. The price tag said simply, "Paradise." What a price to pay for the lust of the eyes! What will a person give in exchange for his birthright or what will a person give in exchange for the paradisical well-being of his soul? Deceived by the devil, Esau traded all for a meal. Some who claim to be Jewish exchange Moshiach and Chayei Olam for something as worthless as shrouds and grave clothes. And Eve? Apparently something as cheap as a single apple from the corner fruit stand. This is one of the wiles of the devil. Like a wiley waiter in an expensive restaurant, he hides the bill from the revelers until the last bottle from the wine cellar has them all vomiting and ready to fall penniless into the gutter.
Many people start out in the ministry and they have an anointing in their public speaking and they think that the anointing is something that is theirs, G-d given, yes, but theirs. What they don't know is that Satan sees the anointing as G-d's and themselves as his to sift. "Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift you like wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers" (Luke 22:31-32). This Scripture is not talking about Simon, it is talking about you. You have two disadvantages: you don't know how wicked your heart is capable of being (Jeremiah says, "Desperately wicked, who can know it?") and you don't know about the wiles of the devil, that you are his target and you will be sifted. The battle is within you. Moses had a problem, but it was not with Miriam or Aaron or even Korah: Moses's problem was with Moses. At the end of the Torah we find out that Moses tripped up Moses. If you take it as a given that Satan will sift you (are you any better than Simon?), you will be a long way down the road in not being deceived by the wiles of the devil.
In the case of Samson, if only something different had happened at the outset. If only Samson's lustful eye had caught the wrathful glance of the L-rd. Then Samson might have made a covenant with his eyes (Job 31:1) to look away from the forbidden. Sometimes it is the eye of the mind that is staring at some paralyzing specter of the past. No matter how dazzling the memory may be, we dare not disobey the Moshiach's command, "to forget what lies behind, and press on" toward heaven or himel (Phil 3:13-14). Remember Lot's wife. That which was under the wrath of G-d, even the very wrath of G-d revealed from heaven, that unholy forbidden world (see 1Ti 3:2 OJB) which she had just started to depart and repent of, suddenly transfixed her attention, like a deer caught in the headlights. O the eyes of Lot's wife! O those generational curses and besetting sins! She had started a spiritual turn-around, not going the dying world's way, starting to go in the Derech Hashem, the Derech Chayim. Suddenly once again the old wickedness transfixed her eyes. It should not have been so attractive to her. What a horrendous thing it is that we can actually be attracted and fascinated by something which we know very well that G-d hates. We are warned in Scripture to set our own hatred (see Ps 97:10 and 101:3) on that very sin which the L-rd hates and not to come near it (Prov 5:8) but rather to flee from it (2Ti 2:22). The more the forbidden world she was leaving made her eyes spellbound, the more salinization of spiritual disintegration she experienced. The longer you harden your heart in backslidden halting between two opinions (see 1Kgs 18:21), the more the sweet savor of your holy sorrow for sin unto repentance and salvation calcifies into mere double-hearted instability (Ya 1:8) and mere worldly sorrow unto death (2C 7:10). When we take the eyes of our heart's devotion off of the Redeemer, we start to sink in the waves, the love of other things pulling us under (Mk 4:19). Very often Satan lulls our all-too-vain hearts during this long Slough of Dispond, this Vanity Fair, this self-pitying backslider's bog, so that we need some divine stroke to startle us back to our senses. For that "Tamar" thing that has bewitched you (2Sm 13:1-2), that forbidden (Lv 18:9), that forbidden "Achan" thing (Josh chapter 7) that Satan filled your heart (Ac 5:3) to snatch and hide in your imagination "which is wicked all the time" (Gn 6:5), hoping you won't be found out (Nu 32:23)...when you renounce it, when you forsake it, when you cry out to Moshiach Goeleinu to deliver you from its plague, its curse, its morat ruach (grief of mind, Gn 26:35), THEN, O Achan, O Amnon, Baruch Hashem, you will be like a man who awakes from a bad dream in which by a divine stroke, a klap foon Himel, a rude slap of divine compassion, you awake and are led out of bondage, out of your backslidden nightmare, only to discover that the "long night" of this backslidden period of your life was not a dream but a reality (see Ac 12:5-17). You then say, "How was I delivered, how did deliverance come to me from this backslidden bondage?" Answer: by the grace of G-d you were Messianic and it was Pesach (Ac 12:4) and many were praying for you (Ac 12:12) and consequently G-d in his compassion shocked you back to your senses (see Ac 12:7). Then it is, dear friend, that we look up and live, when we look up and cry out and come alive, when we look up and see our wiley serpentine sin set on the pole, then it is that we are healed from that firey serpent (Bamidbar 21:6-9). See Yn 3:14-15. For Moshiach, who knew no sin, became that firey serpent sin FOR US, saving us from the sting of death, so that we might become the Tzidkat Hashem in Moshiach Tzidkeinu. See 2C 5:21.
One of the wiles of the devil is seen in Acts chapter 16:17 where the Shluchim are being mocked by a demonic parody. They are there in Philippi to announce the Besuras HaGeulah and a demon is mockingly doing the same thing through the mouth of a demon possessed girl. When we come against the witchcraft Jezebel Kabalistic spirit with a power encounter to evangelize the Hasidim, very often there will arrive in the congregation a demonic parody where someone tries to take authority over the congregation or the leadership with a pseudo spiritual power encounter. But when that independent Jezebel spirit shows up, there are Scriptural teachings to counter it (see pages 198 to 217 in this book). Also see the difference between proper "under authority" ministry and lawlessness (Mt 7:23) and look here.
So rather than defer to our own thoughts as we do when we forsake the Word of G-d [this is our sin (primordially and perennially)--see Genesis chapter 3] "let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man forsake his thoughts; and let him return unto Hashem," for as we know from 2 Corinthians chapter 11, Satan wants to corrupt our thoughts away from pure devotion to Moshiach, and this is one of the wiles of the devil. The people we see in Acts are either the wheat of Matthew chapter 13's parable of the wheat and the weeds or they are the weeds. The weeds like Ananias and Sapphira and Judas Iscariot are filled with the devil and the wheat are filled with the Ruach Hakodesh. This is literally what the Greek NT says. So we must forsake our own corrupt way of thinking and, instead of thinking wicked thoughts, we must think G-d's thoughts recorded in G-d's Word. Take a look. Click here.
