To Look Beyond the Makeup #7

Thursday, August 27, 2020

And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she painted her face, and tired her head, and looked out at a window (2 Kings 9:30 KJV).

Removing her “paint,” what do we see?

Historical Queen Jezebel exercised immense spiritual power over the Jews. No other one woman perverted them so thoroughly with paganism. The LORD mentioned her and her “ministry” in His Book for an important reason. It is an admonition that reaches into the future even beyond our day. Another woman, sharing her name, will again contaminate Israel with false religion during the end-times. Turn to Revelation chapter 2: “[18] And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; [19] I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.

“[20] 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. [21] And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. [22] Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. [23] And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. [24] But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan [!], as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.”

Both in the Bible and secular history, sexual perversion and false religion go hand-in-hand. Whether the first Jezebel (800 years before Christ), or the other Jezebel (after our Dispensation of Grace), the Devil uses pagan idolatry to literally and spiritually “seduce” Israel. As the old adage goes, “Looks can be deceiving….”

Grace and peace! What a privilege to be an ambassador for the risen Christ here on WordPress! I am a Pauline dispensationalist Christian saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus plus nothing! My goal is to "have all men saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:3,4). I seek to preach Jesus Christ crucified for our sins, buried, and raised again for our justification as the only way to salvation. Also, I seek to edify and perfect the saints using dispensational Bible study and the Authorized Version King James Bible!
