The angel of the Lord who spoke to Manoah had a look to her that terrified her:

Judges 13:6 Then the woman came and told her husband, saying, A man of God came unto me, and his countenance was like the countenance of an angel of God, very terrible...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77693203


The news from the angel filled her with surprise and joy, so much so, she never thought to ask the angel's name or anything else for that matter:

Judges 13:6....but I asked him not whence he [was], neither told he me his name
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77698679


Manoah repeated the wonderful news to her husband that the angel gave her:

Judges 13:7 But he said unto me, Behold, thou shalt conceive, and bear a son; and now drink no wine nor strong drink, neither eat any unclean thing: for the child shall be a Nazarite to God from the womb to the day of his death.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75139059


Thinking the news was possibly too good to be true - she prayed to the Lord to have the angel come again and teach them how to do right by the child:

Judges 13:8 Then Manoah intreated the Lord, and said, O my Lord, let the man of God which thou didst send come again unto us, and teach us what we shall do unto the child that shall be born.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77713876


And just as God has done for so many others - he agreed to her prayer request:

Judges 13:9 And God hearkened to the voice of Manoah; and the angel of God came again unto the woman as she sat in the field

Jesus said - when we see ALL these things - this is the generation that will see all prophecy fulfilled.

Luke 21:31 ...Behold the fig tree, and all the trees;

30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.

Matthew 24:33 ...likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things

---

When you literally see shoots on a tree - you know summer is close.

LIKEWISE - when you SEE all these things:

Matthew 24:10 ...many offended...and shall hate one another

Food Production: God is Closing the Window
By Todd Strandberg

Unless you live in Death Valley or another country, you’ve probably noticed that the US has had an abundance of rainfall. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Centers for Environmental Information, May 2018 to April 2019 was the wettest year on record in the contiguous United States.

This year’s corn crop is a little over a month old and it has already been negatively impacted by all this moisture. In fact, it is one for the record books, with planting at the slowest pace in 40 years. There comes a point where there just may not be enough days for the plants to mature before a hard frost, so millions of acres will now have to wait until the 2020 growing season....

Chinese farmers are also very perplexed over why 2019 has become such a disastrous year for food producers. While their weather has been normal, China faces a biological threat on three fronts:

1. Some 30% of pig farms in mainland China are rumored to have been hit by African swine fever....

Bible prophecy may be the explanation for why food production is experiencing so many difficulties. If the tribulation hour is near, the earth is going to go from a time when food is generally plentiful to a time when a loaf of bread will cost a day’s wage. Since 2019 is now certain to be a shortfall year, we may be seeing the beginning of the predicted end-time famine....

To their surprise and wonderment, when the 'man' vanished for good, they realized they had been conversing with an angel of the Lord:

Judges 13:21 But the angel of the Lord did no more appear to Manoah and to his wife. Then Manoah knew that he was an angel of the Lord.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77772564


Manoah saw this as a bad omen - but his wife said otherwise:

Judges 13:22 And Manoah said unto his wife, We shall surely die, because we have seen God.

23 But his wife said unto him, If the Lord were pleased to kill us, he would not have received a burnt offering and a meat offering at our hands, neither would he have shewed us all these things, nor would as at this time have told us such things as these.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76499491


Just as the angel of the Lord told them - they had a baby:

Judges 13:24 And the woman bare a son, and called his name Samson: and the child grew, and the Lord blessed him
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75540701


Samson had a calling - and in time he would know what it was.

Judges 13:25 And the Spirit of the Lord began to move him at times in the camp of Dan between Zorah and Eshtaol.

Judges 14 reveals a weakness Samson displays his entire life; a passion for beautiful woman.

In the first verse, he spots a beautiful woman and immediately without thinking it through - tells his parents he wants to marry her.

Judges 14:1 And Samson went down to Timnath, and saw a woman in Timnath of the daughters of the Philistines.

2 And he came up, and told his father and his mother, and said, I have seen a woman in Timnath of the daughters of the Philistines: now therefore get her for me to wife.

Re: Prophecies Jesus gave in Mathew 24 and Revevelation require internet and smartphone
The surprising sayings of Jesus

Small excerpt:

Discerning the signs of the times

Daniel had foretold a foreign invasion of the Holy Land and the placement of the abomination of desolation within the temple complex (Daniel 11:31). If we follow the historical fulfillment of the Daniel 11 prophecy, it becomes apparent that this was accomplished under the Syrian invader Antiochus Epiphanes, who caused a pagan defilement of the temple around 168 B.C.

Yet this was long before Jesus spoke. So Jesus must have been declaring that this past fulfillment of Daniel’s prophecy was not a complete fulfillment—that the past event was a prototype or forerunner of something still to come...

Is it possible to discern if we are in the end time?

Jesus said it is, giving the example from nature of the branches of a fig tree becoming tender and putting forth leaves as an indicator that summer is near (Matthew 24:32). “So you also, when you see all these things [leading to His return], know that it is near—at the doors!” (Matthew 24:33). Jesus chided the religious authorities of His day for failing to “discern the signs of the times” concerning His first coming (Matthew 16:1-3). He could do the same today with regard to the signs for His second coming.

Obviously we have not entered the Great Tribulation yet. Rather we appear to be in the escalation of initial birth pains. Indeed, for ages wars, famines, pestilences and natural disasters were somewhat static with occasional spikes in activity. But in the past century, mankind has seen a huge increase in all these indicators...

THE SYMBOLISM OF THE LION AND THE BEES: ANOTHER IRONIC TWIST IN THE SAMSON CYCLE

...The Samson story holds a number of rather unique features in comparison with the other cycles in the book of Judges, notwithstanding those features that make it so much like other accounts of the careers of judge- ̃gures.

Thus, even a cursory reading of the book will show that the story of the “last”3of the judges is far more biographical in nature than any of the preceding episodes.

Only the Samson cycle commences with a birth narrative, and that chapter 16 includes an account of Samson’s death also sets the cycle apart as the only one that evokes the notion of a well-rounded story about a judge’s life. It is in the birth narrative that we ̃ndthe conspicuous angelic announcement, which itself is unprecedented in the book of Judges...

...We have noted earlier that the lion’s cadaver was an unlikely host for a“community” of bees. But so was Canaan for Israel. For although the prom-ised land was introduced as a “good land” (see above), initially God’s holynation (cf. Exod 19:6) entered an “unclean” zone....
