Dear reader, you may find it hard to believe what I am about to tell you, but it is the truth. Despite the fact that Samson made sinful mistakes and his life ended tragically, God forgave him and he is now one of the saints in heaven.
This action saved Samson from descending into Hell.
In the last hours of his life, Samson did something that saved him from perishing in hell. He remembered God our Father and repented from the depths of his heart.
Samson wept in his heart as he begged God for mercy and forgiveness. He realized that some of his actions were sinful and had brought embarrassment to God’s name.
As Samson continued to cry in his heart, he pleaded with Heavenly Father not to allow the devil to drag him to hell.
Samson repented of his sins.
Samson painfully begged God to cleanse him and blot out his sins so that his name would appear again in God’s Book of Life. Listen to how Samson wept:
Then Samson prayed to the Lord,
“Sovereign Lord, remember me.“
God heard Samson’s prayer.
God’s miracles never cease. At this moment when Samson was at his greatest point of spiritual need, our Father in heaven heard his prayer for mercy.
Soon after Samson’s prayer, two miracles happened. First, our Father in heaven washed all Samson’s sins away, and secondly God gave Samson the supernatural strength he desperately needed.
Samson died a forgiven man.
Because of Samson’s repentance, and as a result of God’s great mercy, Samson died a forgiven man.
Samson is in heaven.
God’s warning to all Christians.
Our Father in heaven is warning all Christians not to wait for the last minute to repent and change their sinful ways. God gave Samson a rare divine favor and enough time to repent.
But many times Satan and demons bring sudden death to Christians so that they don’t have time to repent.
In many cases, sudden death takes a Christian to hell because there was no time for repentance.
Repent and change your ways now,
Then you will get my favor for eternal life.
Says the Lord.
God later forgave Samson.
