The Great Whore Under Attack In Spiritual Warfare

Revelation 18:4
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues”.

History repeats itself, and the sins of man are likened to those from the beginning evolving into the Harlot’s spirit. In illicit sex, lies weakness from beauty akin to glamour and luxury, that are attracted to wealth. All are seductions for the yearnings and begetting of power. In power comes the seductions of many underlying evils. JonAk

Revelation 18:3
For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”

“Not withstanding I HAVE A FEW THINGS AGAINST THEE, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calls 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.”

“Behold, I will cast her into a bed and them 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 which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.”
Revelation speaks of an O.T. character named Jezebel. She is mentioned in, 1 Kings 16:31 and II Kings.

What do we know about her? Why does Jesus refer to her as being in the future last days of mankind?

Jezebel was a princess, the daughter of King Ethbaal, king of Zidon. Zidon is an ancient Phoenician city, in the land we now call Lebanon. Zidon, in the New Testament is written as Sidon. It is a city approximately 20 miles north of the port city of Tyre.

Jezebel was a zealous worshiper of the god Baal, Ashtaroth, and other Phoenician gods. This foreign princess became the wife of King Ahab.

Ahab was ruler, a king over the northern 10 tribes of Israel. He reigned between 873-851 B.C, a period of 22 years. His unfaithfulness to God far exceeded all the other kings of Israel. Ahab brought into the land an evil woman, a woman who introduced to the nation the public worship of many false gods and idols.

Ahab’s marriage to Jezebel brought with it, many foreign political advantages, but in time, it became a religious disaster. Not only did Jezebel introduce to the Jews the worship of the god Baal; but this idolatry gave free license to all Jews’ to indulge in every unholy excess, unrestrained by law or morality. This punctuated by religious orgies in the worship of the goddess Ashtoreth.

  1. The Lord tells us to “seek Peace and pursue it”. Truly Divine Peace is not of this world
    and does not belong to it. So we kneel, bow in prayer and reach out to Heaven
    where our Messiah sits enthroned as the King of Peace. And we find rest at last.
    We know Jezebel’s end.

    1. The kingdom of Heaven is within. God above placed man in the world. Jezebel’s spirit can be witnessed in our current spiritual, end time battles. God in Christ is our life ready to occupy our hearts. May all people in the world and those lost in contrition, open the doors of their hearts for the new and everlasting covenant. Amen.
