Hello, No Woman of God Should Want To Be Like Delilah!


Reader, people online are saying that Bishop Jakes errored in his teaching of Samson and Delilah and Pastor Marvin Sapp was wrong in trying to defend him, what are your thoughts? The statement on the above flyer seems to have struck a nerve online. Bishop Marvin Sapp seems to have come to Bishop Jake's defense in the matter by trying to convince his social media followers and bible readers that Delilah was actually good for Samson: 

Marvin L. Sapp, Understand the context before you post. Don't just be his wife. Be what he desires, keep running back to and tells his secrets too.... #NowPost

 Maybe I've totally missed the point of the post like the others, but Delilah was not good for Samson. Her deception led to his demise. I absolutely would never want to be like her. The lap of Delilah was never a safe haven for Samson nor a place of trust since the Philistines were the enemy of Samson’s people.

  1. Totally exegetically incorrect because Delilah was trying to find out what made Samson strong. If you read the account of his life in Judges, the text tells us that his strength was in his head. Disclosing the secret costed Samson his eyesight, strength, and ultimately his life. Jakes has played games with the Biblical text before about Ruth and Namomi. For Sapp to even tell people online what he posted is wrong, too.

  2. AS A SAVED SANTIFIED WOMAN. H 2 NO.I WOULD NEVER EVER WANT TO BE COMPARED TO DELILAH SHE WAS A WHORE WHO WAS USED BY THE UNGODLY TO TRAPPED A MAN. WHO KNEW BETTER BUT SUCCUMBED TO HER. THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOUR FLESH TAKES OVER.AND WHEN YOU MESS AROUND WITH THE devil YOU GET BURNED. EVEN TINA TURNER HAD A SONG YEARS AGO THAT MY UNSAVED DADDY USE TO LISTEN TO. DON'T GIVE YOUR LOVE TO DELILAH. YOU MIGHT AS WELL TRY IT WITH A SPIDER.JAKES AND SAPP ARE BOTH WRONG. THEY ARE IN THE FLESH TALKING AND DEFINITELY NOT IN THE SPIRIT OF DISCERNMENT AND SAYING THE WORDS. THAT A REAL MAN OF GOD WOULD TEACH TO HIS CONGREGATION LESS MORE TO A FORUM. IT'S FOOLISHNESS LIKE THAT.IS WHY WE CAN'T GET FOLKS SAVED.THEY HEAR FOOLISHNESS LIKE THAT AND THINK THAT SIN IS OK. AND BEING A WHORE TRAPPING MEN BEING DECEITFUL IS GOOD.SMDH

    1. Exactly!!!! What kind of heresy is going on?? That is that kind of preaching from TD Jakes that had me stop watching his show in the first place!! Twisting the Scriptures to see how far he can go!

      I'm waiting on him or somebody to preach about goliath and tell the congregation that Goliath didn't deserve his bad reputation!

      HERESY in these last days!!

  3. Context matters so before people get outraged over everything they should listen to the context. Based on Marvin Sapp post I can understand the point.

  4. Delilah was a bad person. In what context do you want to be a Goliath or a Balaam? You can say anything positive about any1.

    1. Without hearing the context
      I am not sure how people can be outraged but then again there is a trend for social media to be outraged about everything.

  5. Yes, context is very necessary to rightly divide the Word of Truth and that is why there is such outrage over the Delilah analysis by Jakes. There is a difference between a man freely sharing his secrets with a woman because he loves and trusts her and a woman being used by the enemy to bring a man of God to his ruin. Sampson was not supposed to share the secret of his strength. He disobeyed God by doing so. A woman should encourage her spouse to stay in God's will. I wouldn't have asked, or allowed him to tell me the secret of his strength if I was his wife. A cunning and deceptive woman is not what I aspire to be, and I doubt if a Christian man really wants a Delilah for a wife.

  6. THIS IS WHY SO MANY SAVED ATHLETES AND CELEBERTIES MARRY MEN AND WOMEN THAT AREN'T SAVED. BECAUSE OF THIS FOOLISHNESS JAKE'S AND SAPP ARE STATING. IF ANY MAN IS TRULY SAVED HE WOULDN'T BE GOING TO THE CLUB, OR ANYWHERE ELSE THAT THE UNGODLY PARTICIPANTS ATTENDS.WE REALIZE THAT THERE BE TIMES THAT THEY HAVE TO ATTEND CERTAIN FUNCTIONS BECAUSE OF THERE JOBS. BUT TO CONSTANTLY BE IN THE ARENAS OF THE UNGODLY JUST ISN'T ACCEPTABLE. SO IF A MAN IS TRULY SAVED HE WOULDN'T BE NEAR THE PRESENCE OF DELILAH NOR WANT ONE FOR A WIFE.

  8. Miss Ann,

    I agree!

    No woman who has been saved by the blood of the lamb should demean her self and be a seductive mate to her husband. What reward is there for her?

    Proverbs 31 defines what a woman should aspire to and her reward is detailed therein.

    Jakes and Sapp may have women who are their Delilahs but they shouldn't preach to those who have purposed to live according to the precepts of God to turn to worldly ways and become a point of destruction to the men in their lives.

    PS - While Samson did have a wife (Judges 14), Delilah was never is wife (Judges 16).

    So those talking about context should revisit the scriptures like the Bereans and prove that it is so.

  9. Thanks for the correction about Delilah not actually being Samson's wife. I don't have a problem with Jakes personally, but I don't know much about him except he is a great preacher. I just think this interpretation of Delilah and Samson's relationship is flawed and I understand why it has caused a less than positive reaction by many believers who study the Word.

  10. THE WORD OF GOD STATES: CALL FOR THE MOURNING WOMEN. VIRTUOUS WOMEN. NOT A SLUTRIOUS WOMAN. JAKES NEEDS TO STOP PREACING AND TEACHING FALSE DOCTRINE AND FALSE INTERPRETATION OF GOD'S HOLY WORD.RUTH AND NAOMI WASN'T LESBIANS NOR WAS DAVID AND JONATHAN. THAT'S WHY THESE FOLKS THAT HAS JAKES AS THERE COVERING ARE LIVING HELLISH LIFESTYLES. LOOK WHO THERE LEADER IS.THE APPLES FALL FAR FROM THE TREE.

    1. ....but someone said if you listen to the whole thing the point he was making,would make sense. If that's the case then Jake's not preaching teaching a false doctrine. I'm just saying!

  11. Lady B, We have listened to the whole matter and it is still false doctrine no matter how you say it. Preaching and Teaching it is a LIE.JUST cause of who JAKES is doesn't make him perfect nor does it make him speak the TRUTH AT ALL TIMES.He is now more of a life coach and celebrity than A MAN OF GOD. It's about the BENJAMINS NOW NOT SOULS.You was and is on point with what you have stated. And the others that responed with the statements of TRUTHS OF CORRECTIONS.

  12. I just noticed on the picture posted, the name is written Sampson and NOT Samson.

    Who is Sampson? And why would this name be used instead of Samson?

    Was it intentional? Or is it a way to display that what Jakes is actually talking about is false just like the name Sampson doesn't exist in the bible?

    Mmmmh!

    And what has the entire subject of "Sampson" and Delilah got to do with leadership?

    Our savior declared that if we want to be the greatest in his kingdom, we have to be the least. We have to be servants (Matthew 20).

    Jesus also said we have to deny ourselves (Luke 9) and that if we give up what is close to us for the sake of the kingdom, we will receive "an hundredfold" and inherit the kingdom (Matthew 19).

    Why would anyone who has received such truth turn back to flesh, and therefore death? (Romans 8)

    2. So I took the trouble to review and try to understand the context of Jakes' teaching from Sapp's post:

      "1. It was directed to wives.
      2. The instructions wasn't to take on her character but to look at the reasons he kept coming back and apply those positive principles to your relationship with your mate/husband:
      a) she was what he desired
      b) because she was what he desired he kept running back to her
      c) he trusted her so much he shared his deepest secret with her.

      As a man I promise you this is what every man wants. You can be whatever biblical figure you please. However, you better make sure you do those 3 things for your future mate..."

      Compare and contrast with Proverbs 31:

      "Give not thy strength unto women nor thy ways to that which destroyeth kings... Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life... Her husband is known in the gates... strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness... and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children... call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her... Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised... let her own works praise her in the gates." (Proverbs 31:3-31)

      In reviewing Judges 16 vs Proverbs 31, I find glaring contrasts:

      Samson gave the secret of his strength to Delilah and she destroyed him.

      Delilah was easy find because she wasn't virtuous.

      Samson didn't trust her and that's why he kept telling her tall tales about his strength.

      Delilah did Samson evil.

      She didn't open her mouth with wisdom. Constantly wearing him out with trying to find out the source of his strength.

      She ate the bread of idleness always trying to come up with a way to trick Samson.

      Above all, she had no fear of the LORD.

      If these "men of God" can, without fear of breaking God's commandments, recommend for men to look out for a Delilah and women to aspire to her; there is no holiness or righteousness left in their hearts.

      Let us contend for the faith which was once delivered to the saints (Jude 3) and treat Jakes' and Sapp's strange doctrines (Hebrews 13:9) with the contempt they deserve.
