I have been teaching through Samson on Wed. eve. at church. The biggest question has been "Why does God not correct Samson when he violates the Nazarite vow?"
We can see many instances in Judges 14-16 where Samson is obviously not following the law yet with seemingly no consequences. He is even instructed by the Lord to pursue a Philistine wife . It isn't until Samson reveals to Delilah that he cannot cut his hair that the Spirit leaves him.
It appears to me that God was looking at Samsons heart long before the law was fulfiiled in Christ. God seemed to be more concerned with Samson's spirit in regard to the law rather than the letter.
Where does this leave the dispensationalists?
We know that Samson is compared to Christ in many ways, is this why the spirit mattered more than the letter?
If Samsons life is not a reminder that God deals with us as individuals, and that it is impossible to judge anothers heart, I don't know how we will learn it.
