The Angel of
The Lord to Manoah
Foretelling Birth of Samson

Judges 13.2-25

A remarkable person flashes across the pages of the Old Testament. He is called "the angel of the LORD." On several occasions at crisis times for God's people, this amazing being appears. He speaks with incredible authority. He acts with startling power. Sometimes he brings severe judgement; sometimes he brings gentle comfort. He leaves those who see him in awe.

On one very ordinary day in the time of the judges in Israel, one very ordinary couple had a visit from the angel of the Lord. They were certain of one thing when he left—he was no ordinary angel!
