The exciting story of Samson and Delilah is found in the Book of Judges chapter 16. "What is sweeter than honey? What is stronger than a lion?" (Judges 14:18).
 

The story of Samson and Delilah is an end of the world scenario!!

The story of Samson and Delilah is a thrilling visual aid acted out in history (circa 1000 BC) by real people. Samson (Heb. like the sun) was bound and blinded by the Philistines and turned into a beast of burden....That was Darwinism in reverse.

At the end of time, the Holy Bible says that the United States of Israel will be like Samson before he regained his strength:

Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked (Revelation: 3:17).

The Bible also predicts that the last days Congregation will be seduced by Jezebel:

Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce my servants to commit fornication and to eat things sacrificed to idols (Revelation 2:20).

Since the ecumenical movement began in 1962, Rome has lulled the Christians in the United States of Israel into a sound sleep....The Philistine spy Delilah (Heb. feeble) was from the Valley of Sorek (Heb. choice vine), and she was offered huge bribes: 1100 shekels of silver from each of the 5 lords of the Philistines to betray the Army of One Samson.

The Philistines worshipped Dagon–the Babylonian or Assyrian FISH-GOD:

Then the lords of the Philistines gathered themselves together 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" (Judges 16:23).

DAG is the Hebrew word for FISH . . . so Dagon means great or big FISH....The most infamous Philistine was Goliath of Gath whom David killed with a sling and a sword. Joshua of Nazareth–the descendent of King David–was the BAIT that JEHOVAH used to hook and land the great fish Satan the Devil.

The leader of the first great apostasy after the universal Flood of Noah was a giant named Nimrod.

The arch-rebel Nimrod built the Tower of Babel (circa 2289 BC) as an astrological observatory so JEHOVAH confused their languages.

Nimrod was later called Dagon by the Philistines.

The stories surrounding the demise of Nimrod are legion. Some historians say he was cut in pieces by Shem, the son of Noah, and his body parts thrown into the Euphrates River, where he emerged as a fish. With the confusion of tongues at Babel, the names of false gods changed, but the name of JEHOVAH Elohim remained the same in the Hebrew language.

There is something fishy going on . . . and there is definitely rot on top . . . because the Pope wears a fish-head mitre!!

The Bishop of Rome wears a mitre that resembles a fish's head.

There is no such position as Pope or Bishop in the Christian Congregation.

Saint Paul mentions 3 offices only: episcopus, presbyter, and deacon!!

The Vatican claims to be following the custom of Moses, who crowned Aaron the high priest with a special headdress. That headdress was a TURBAN and the Jewish high priest of JEHOVAH was clearly recognizable by his headdress!!

Dagon mitres were first used by the Popes and their bishops around 1000 AD.
Mitre comes from the Latin MITRAS!!

The ancient Jewish high priests–beginning with Aaron–wore TURBANS:

And he (Moses) set the headdress upon his (Aaron's) head; and on the headdress, in front, he put the gold frontlet, the holy diadem–as the LORD had commanded Moses. (Leviticus 8:9, The Tanakh).

The corrupt Latin Vulgate Version changed TURBAN to MITRE:

He put also the mitre upon his head: and upon the mitre over the forehead, he put the plate of gold, consecrated with sanctification, as the Lord had commanded him. (Leviticus 8:9, Douay-Rheims Version).

The English word MITRE comes from the Latin MITRAS. MITRAS (MITHRAS in English), was the Roman equivelent of Dagon–the Philistine fish-god:

They made also fine linen tunics with woven work for Aaron and his sons: And mitres with their little crowns of fine linen (Leviticus 39:25-26, Douay-Rheims Version).

Fecerunt et tunicas byssinas opere textili Aaron et filiis eius et mitras cum coronulis suis ex bysso (Leviticus 39:25-26, Latin Vulgate Version).

Mithras was the most abominable and secretive pagan solar cult in the Roman Empire. His worshippers were mainly soldiers, and his temples were found throughout the vast extent of the Empire. Mithras was also called Sol Invictus Mitras, and Emperor Constantine was one of his numerous devotees.

Mithras was the most secretive and deadly pagan cult in the Roman Empire.

The Mysteries of Mithras required 7 steps to prepare the initiate for the Mithraic "heaven."

December 25th was the birthday of Mithras and his devotees went door to door in their red caps handing out presents!!

Mithraism is a diabolical perversion of the great doctrine of redemption through the Messiah found in Genesis Chapter 3:

And I (JEHOVAH) will put enmity between thee (Satan) and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; HE shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel (Genesis 3:15).

In their perverted iconography, the BULL symbolizes the Messiah . . . who is slain by Mithras . . . while a dog and snake drinks his blood:

In the Roman mystery cult of Mithras, seven degrees of initiation enabled the neophyte to proceed through the seven celestial bodies, allowing a reversal of the descent of the human soul into the world at birth. To achieve this, the initiate ascended the seven heavens and walked through the Milky Way, returning to the origin of the Soul. The initiates worked with the four elements and seven planetary energies, and the initiations involved the undergoing of purification and "ordeals." The seven sets of symbols on the floor mosaic in the Mithraeum of Felicissimus, in Ostia, Italy, show the emblems for each of the seven grades. (Nabarz, The Mysteries of Mithras, p.30).

Their dark rites were performed in caves, and the initiates were sworn to secrecy. Nothing was put in writing, as their diabolical doctrines were conveyed by means of signs and symbols only.

The 7 steps corresponding to the Latin Church's 7 sacraments were:

Corax (Raven), Nymphus (Bride), Miles (Soldier), Leo (Lion), Perses, (Persian), Heliodromus (Sun-messenger), Pater (Father).

The cult of Mithras was exclusively MALE but the second degree was called Nymphus (Bride)!!

The Mithraic cult was exclusively MALE but the second degree was called Nymphus (Bride) under the protection of the foul demon called Venus. What kind of bride could an exclusively male cult member have but another male? This was the beginning of diabolical same-sex marriages!!

The city of London was once a Roman colony called Londinium and the Roman legions erected a temple to Mithras on that very spot.

In 43 AD, the Mithraic worshipping Roman legions invaded Britannia.

The cult of Mithras was married to the super-secretive Druid religion, creating a deadly hybrid, which later evolved into the Papal Roman Empire.

Entry to the first degree was by water baptism!

Mithraic baptism symbolized the candidate's death and rebirth:

The first degree was that of Corax (Raven), under the rule of Mercury. This stage symbolized the death of the neophyte. (In ancient Persia, it was the custom to place the bodies of the dead on funeral towers, to be eaten by ravens.) At this first stage the neophyte would die and be reborn into a spiritual path. A mantra was given to him to repeat, and his sins were washed away by baptism in water. (Nabarz, The Mysteries of Mithras, p.30).

The Church of Rome and the Church of England produces "Christians" by exactly the same method:

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua), and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: "Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word." (Catechism of the "Catholic" Church, 1997, Part Two, Article 1).

The 3rd degree called Miles actually involved placing a cross on the Mithraic devotees.

From the Euphrates River to Hadrian's Wall, the cult of Mithras followed the Roman legions wherever they went.

Saint Patrick's parents and grandparents would have seen Roman soldiers with the Mithraic cross on their foreheads.

The Mithraic cult had a special appeal for the Druids because of the extreme secrecy surrounding their rites, and the fact that they never put anything in writing.

The Philistines proclaimed a "holy day" to celebrate the downfall of Samson!!

The Philistines rejoiced and made merry over the victory of Dagon over JEHOVAH....They proclaimed a public holiday; and all went to the temple to worship Dagon, while Samson was put on public display as their trophy of victory.

Sampson was blinded by the Philistines and made to work like an ox.

The Pope symbolizes the fish-god Dagon . . . not Saint Peter the Fisherman.

The Philistines symbolize all the members of the Latin Church.

Gog and Magog symbolize the 2 pillars of the temple of Dagon.

At the end, Sampson regained his strength and brought down the house on the Philistines.
At the end, Samson regained his strength, and he brought
the house down on the heads of the Philistines.

As his hair began to grow again, the blind, wretched, miserable Samson regained his strength, and brought down the temple of Dagon on the heads of the Philistines:

And Samson called unto JEHOVAH, and said, "O JEHOVAH Elohim, remember me, I pray thee, and strengthen me, I pray thee, only this once, O Elohim, 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 (Judges 16:29-30).

That is where the expression "bringing down the house originated."

The Jewish Messiah is our only Intercessor and Mediator. He is praying right now that all true Christians regain their spiritual sight and become Samsons for Christ.
