Over the last few months, the Lord has been opening up the workings of the Jezebel spirit to me. I’ve been feeling a pressing need to learn about her character, methods, schemes and motives, as the Lord is wanting to clear the smoke before our eyes, which keeps us from seeing her operating in our midst. For Jezebel will be our biggest demonic opponent in this End-Time battle for the nations. She works through deceiving us with her lies by using terminologies that give the impression that what she builds is for the better good, but her motives are wicked, and whatever she puts her hands to, and wherever she gains ground, is for the establishment of the institution of Baal.
What does Baal worship entail? Involving many idols, it is overtly focussed on sexual immorality, depravity, elevating the body over everything, sacrificing their children in the hope of winning favour. It is overtly opposed to the Word of God and God’s People, for everything in the Bible opposes Baal. The Jews living in this society, took on her pagan rituals and customs, following her lies, they killed the true prophets and made room for the false. The judgment of the Lord was upon her and God’s rebellious people who followed her.
The Lord is giving a warning to us, His Church. ‘Come out from among them! Cleanse your hands and hearts and give the devil no ground. For by your silence she will rule, by your mutings, you align yourself just as the rebellious house of Israel did, breaking My First Commandment.’
Come out from among them and be bold! Speak Words of Truth and Righteousness! For the Kingdom of God will be established by your obedience, when you pray and live according to this,
9Pray then like this:
“Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.a
10Your kingdom come,
your will be done,b
on earth as it is in heaven.
11Give us this day our daily bread,c
12and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.d
Flee from the lusts of the flesh and pursue righteousness. Raise up a generation who fears the Lord, who will be His Warriors in the End-Time Battle. Our children are His Arrows, they are His Delight. Let’s train them in the way they should go, protecting them from the lies and deception preached by the pagan religion of Baal which promotes sexual promiscuity and immorality, elevating the body over the soul and spirit.
Stand up for what is right! Be bold and courageous and see the Lord work on your behalf in changing the tide, setting a new course, and establishing His Kingdom in our land. It does demand faith and courage to stand against evil, being willing to suffer as Christ did, through accusation, mockings, and slanderings.
6Train up a child in the way he should go;
even when he is old he will not depart from it.
God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness
18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world,g in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.
24Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
26For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
28And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.
19“‘I know your works, your love and faith and service and patient endurance, and that your latter works exceed the first. 20But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants to practice sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols. 21I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her sexual immorality. 22Behold, I will throw her onto a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her I will throw into great tribulation, unless they repent of her works, 23and I will strike her children dead. And all the churches will know that I am he who searches mind and heart, and I will give to each of you according to your works. 24But to the rest of you in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not learned what some call the deep things of Satan, to you I say, I do not lay on you any other burden. 25Only hold fast what you have until I come. 26The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, 27and he will rulec them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father. 28And I will give him the morning star. 29He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’
