"Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce My servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not." Revelation 2:20-21
Who or what is Jezebel? The literal, historic person was the daughter of Ethbaal, king of the Zidonians, who became the wife of King Ahab of Israel. Of course, that Jezzy was thrown out a window, run over by a chariot, and eaten by dogs (2 Kings 9:30-37) so it isn't her, but someone or something that acts just like her. She isn't one specific woman, nor all women in general as some preach.
There are three other "women" mentioned in Revelation: the Sun-Clothed Woman (ch 12), the Whore of Babylon (ch 17), and the Bride of Christ (ch 19). Each of these is an allegory representing a group or class of people all in their own spiritual boat: the persecuted Church, the apostate Church, and the redeemed & resurrected Church. So it stands to reason Jezebel is also an allegory representing a class of people in the same spiritual condition. These are false prophets and teachers leading the people of God away from the truth of the Gospel and back into carnality and paganism.
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, speaking lies in hypocrisy: having their conscience seared with a hot iron..." 1 Timothy 4:1-2
So why do I say Jezebel is the people and not the spirit? Because Jesus said He gave her the chance to repent, an option not open to demons. Now when Jesus says Jezebel is teaching His servants to commit fornication, that doesn't mean she's demonstrating the positions! It means, she's justifying that behavior, saying God understands and it's OK and you were born that way and Jesus loves you that way, blahblahblah. It also means she's encouraging fornication through the culture and her spells.
When Joram asked Jehu if he came in peace, he replied, "What peace, so long as the whoredoms of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many?" Jezebel is all about two things: sex & magic. Idolatry, occultism, witchcraft, and fornication all go together. The media are constantly pushing both on the servants of the Lord from daycare onward. Disney is one of the biggest channels of Jezebel! Their children's films are loaded with overt and subliminal messages encouraging sex and the occult.
And it's something the church allows to go on. Instead of boycotting Starbucks' snowflakeless cups, we ought to boycott Disney's mind control programming that prepares our children for the age of the antichrist. You don't believe Disney is doing Jezebel's work? Do a little research, there's some good stuff out there. Just google the video "In Upendi" (i.e. "In Your Panty") and see for yourself. Remember the name Jezebel literally means "chaste", so we're talking about those with a name or reputation of being pure and wholesome.
How far has Jezebel gotten in the church? You need only view the Buzzfeed video "I'm a Christian, but I'm not" to witness the attitude toward sexuality that's taken hold of our youth.
And idolatry? Superheroes are our new gods & goddesses, while ancient deities from Egyptian and Canaanite fertility cults and Greco-Roman mystery religions are being resurrected in our culture as well.
Why do you care? Because Jesus Christ our Lord has decreed this punishment on all churches that allow her witchcraft and fornication classes: "Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and those that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I AM He that searcheth the reins and hearts; and I will give every one of you according to your works."
The world is always lowering her standards of sexual morality, and the Church continues to follow suit. The push for "tolerance" and pluralism have also taken hold. It would be easy to blame the church leaders, but we all have a part in this. We need to shut off Jezebel's song and listen to the voice of the Spirit of Christ. He is telling us to repent!
