I Said, Don’t Touch

Then 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.

Judges 16:17-20


You see, Samson had reached the place where he

thought even if they shaved his hair off, he was

invincible. “I’m going to get up and shake myself and go

out like I did the other times.” That’s what he thought.

And he wist not that the Lord was departed from him.

Judges 16:20


The Anointing Has Left and Some Don’t Know It


Now, I want you to see something here. Samson

lost the anointing and didn’t know it. There are people

today in churches who have lost the anointing and don’t

know it. They’re deacons, elders, ministers, and

congregation members who have lost the anointing and

don’t know it’s gone.


That’s a sad thing, that people who have had the

anointing of God upon their lives can go into an area

where they still think the anointing of God is on them, yet

it’s gone. That is one of the most dangerous places to be.

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

it was shaven.

Judges 16:21, 22


The Results of Losing the Anointing


The first thing that happened was Samson lost his

covering; he lost his hair. And in losing his hair, he lost

his strength. I believe he not only lost his hair, I believe

he lost his joy. Because the Bible says the joy of the Lord

is our strength. The hair of Samson was his strength. He

lost his hair and he lost his strength. Here he is a bald,

weak man.


The second thing that happened to him was that

he lost his eyesight. They poked his eyes out and he lost

his ability to see. When the anointing goes from you, you

lose your ability to see into the Spirit. You’re like a blind

man stumbling around in a room.


You can’t see clearly. You stumble around in

darkness, crying, “O God, show me, show me.” And there

never comes an answer because you can’t see.

Samson lost his eyesight. He lost the ability to

see. He lost his freedom. They put him in captivity. They

bound him with chains. Then they took him and made

him do the work of a donkey. When you lose the

anointing, you become like a donkey. His job was to

grind the corn. How hard it becomes.
