I can say that without any fear of censure. I might go back
a few centuries for some background info to a time when a man let a barber
named Delilah give him a G.I. cut where there was nothing left but the roots.
There are several things to note about his trim and to start;
he was trusting the wrong barber with his power infused locks.
This began way back, when in disobedience to his parents he fell
in love with a Philistine woman from Timnah, whom he decided to marry. On his way to ask for her hand in marriage,
Samson was attacked by a lion. The
Spirit of GOD came upon him and he quickly dispatched that big cat.
The problem with this was he misinterpreted this event. He
thought it was an example of his anointing and his righteousness when it really
was a; “Stop don’t do it moment.”
A series of this type of warning was ignored by Samson which
finally led to his haircut and the loss of his power. When he yielded to a continual life of
disobedience his destruction was assured.
Delilah was used by the enemies of Samson as a tool to bring
him down and the enemy of your soul will use whatever or whoever to do the same
to you, man or woman.
Understand there is a barber chair waiting for you and there
is no waiting.

Samson thought he could violate the vow of the Nazarite but he was self-deceived by the lust he allowed to rule over
Every Christian who comes to GOD and dedicates himself to
God is taking a vow not unlike the vow of the Nazarite. A closer look at what the vow includes is much
of what is expected of the “born again one” today.
Know this there is a bad barber shop where you live with an
empty chair waiting for the “want-a-be” disobedient.
Let me pose this question to you; knowing you are subject to
temptation how close are you to being seated in the barber’s chair?
It is absolutely essential to avoid the hair cut for it will
destroy your testimony and ministry and do despite to the cause of Christ.
Remember Samson’s folly in thinking he could get away with
ignoring what he knew was the right way to go.
Wrong engenders evil, and evil bears bitter fruit. Say it again
“Evil bears bitter fruit.”
