tribes names (2).png

Dan was the fifth son of Jacob with Bilhah, a handmaiden of Rachel.  His name means “judge”.

Genesis 30:6 - Then Rachel said, “God has judged my case; and He has also heard my voice and given me a son.” So, she called his name Dan.

Samson the Nazarite came from the tribe of Dan, he was the last judge of Israel. One day, an angel that appeared to his mother telling  her that she would give birth to a son who would one day deliver the Hebrews from the hands of the Philistines.

Samson’s death ends up being his greatest victory against the Philistines. The Philistines bring Samson down to Gaza and bind him to two pillars in their temple as a display for the amusement of the Philistine worshipers. Here Samson prays to God, asking for his strength to return to him one more time.

God responds by sending Samson a final burst of strength, and Samson pushes against the pillars and brings the entire temple down, killing himself and all those in the temple with him. The text concludes: “Those he killed at his death were more than those he had killed during his life” 

God is loving, kind, merciful and he is perfectly righteous and perfectly just.

God is just – What does it mean? It means that he will judge between right and wrong and he will administer justice in accordance with his standards.

Pursuing biblical justice means we follow God's way to make right that which is wrong, To correct, not just punish.

Deuteronomy 16:20 - Follow justice and justice alone, so that you may live and possess the land the LORD your God is giving you.

Psalm 33:5 - says: “He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.”

Lack of compassion for those who suffer injustice prevents us from fulfilling our priestly role.

God is not indifferent; he cares about mankind! 

May God's righteousness be engraved on our new nature.
