Prophet Samson

Then Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” And he pushed with all his might, and the temple fell on the lords and all the people who were in it. So the dead that he killed at his death were more than he had killed in his life. And his brothers and all his father’s household came down and took him, and brought him up and buried him between Zorah and Eshtaol in the tomb of his father Manoah. He had judged Israel twenty years.

The Spiritual Meaning of Colors

Mankind has his own interpretation to the meaning of colors for their usage in life. The types of colors we make use of in our daily clothing and activities, are our desire, feelings, thoughts and perceptions reflected through them. History has told the relation between men and colors in their societal, economic and political duties which he himself has emphasized. We have watched many parades, festivals and marches utilizing different types of colors to forward messages, slogan or else advertisement.

Colors might have their meaning to us but our Holy Church teaches about their spiritual meaning. It is impossible to talk about meaning of colors without stating the rainbow mentioned in the Book of Genesis. And God said: “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.” (Genesis 9:12-15)
