1 Kings 16 30-33
30 But Ahab son of Omri did what was evil in the Lord’s sight, even more than any of the kings before him. 31 And as though it were not enough to follow the sinful example of Jeroboam, he married Jezebel, the daughter of King Ethbaal of the Sidonians, and he began to bow down in worship of Baal. 32 First Ahab built a temple and an altar for Baal in Samaria. 33 Then he set up an Asherah pole. He did more to provoke the anger of the Lord, the God of Israel, than any of the other kings of Israel before him.
1 Kings 21:25-26
25 (No one else so completely sold himself to what was evil in the Lord’s sight as Ahab did under the influence of his wife Jezebel. 26 His worst outrage was worshiping idols[d] just as the Amorites had done—the people whom the Lord had driven out from the land ahead of the Israelites.)
23 They will teach my people the difference between what is holy and what is common, what is ceremonially clean and unclean.
Jezebel (/ˈdʒɛzəbəl, -bɛl/, Hebrew: אִיזֶבֶל) was the daughter of Ithobaal I of Sidon and the wife of Ahab, King of Israel, according to the Book of Kings of the Hebrew Bible (1 Kings 16:31).
According to the Biblical narrative, Jezebel, along with her husband, instituted the worship of Baal and Asherah on a national scale. In addition, she violently purged the prophets of Yahweh from Israel, damaging the reputation of the Omride dynasty. For these offences, the Omride Dynasty was annihilated, with Jezebel herself suffering the gruesome death of defenestration.
These scriptures teach us what Jezebel has done and how she operates. The name Jezebel is used in the New Testament in Revelation 2:18-29. She is described as a prophetess, a false teacher, an immoral woman and an idol worshipper.
The Bible teaches us in 1 Peter 5:8 to be on alert, on guard for our adversary, the devil walks around like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. Make no mistake, satan is angry. He knows where his end is and he wants to take as many there with him as he can. So, will he use his deception and deceiving spirits to seduce? You betcha.
Matthew 24:24 NLT
For false messiahs and false prophets will rise up and perform great signs and wonders so as to deceive, if possible, even God’s chosen ones.
These things are not written in a special code, we do not have to try and figure them out. Just read the word of God. Knowledge is power. The Lord says in Hosea 4:6 that His people perish for a lack of knowledge. Let’s not be among those perishing. Understand His word. There has to be change. Heartfelt, eye-opening, soul gripping change!
Pray with me please
Oh, how we love You. We magnify Your name. We cry all power and glory are Yours. There is no-one like You in all the earth. Today, it is our prayer that You would open our eyes to any and all false teaching that we may have followed before. Lord, if there is anything AT ALL that does not line up with Your word, I pray that it would be exposed right now in the name of Jesus, to everyone reading. Lord, take our blinders (2 Corinthians 4:4) off and let us see the truth, as outlined in Your holy Scriptures. Let us be true believers, rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15).
Your word says in Galatians 1:8 – “But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse!”
Lord, if we have blindly followed wrong doctrine, please speak to our hearts right now and let us know where, how and why it is wrong. I pray for a great revival across this world and it has to happen within Your church. We have to be cleaned up and ready, so we can point others to the right Way. Have Your way in our lives Lord and we will give You all of the praise, for it is in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
We are instructed to bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2), so if there are any prayer requests feel free to leave them in the comment section. I would be honored to pray with you. If it is more private you can always contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org I check that every day. Blessings to you all, till we meet again, tomorrow, if the Lord is willing. Peace.
