JEZEBEL

 

Extracts and comments from Revelation Chp. 2:20, 2:22, 2:23 & 2:24(a)

  

2:20 

Not withstanding I have against thee, because thou sufferest the woman (a)Jezabel which callest herself a prophetess, and she teacheth and (b)seduceth My servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.   

(a)  Jezebel lived circa. BC 820, (1Kings 16:30-34, 21:25, 2Kings 9:22-30, Jer. 4:30 & Nah. 3:4).  Clearly she did not act during John's life, but will in the future, in principle or fact.  She was the daughter of murderers, one of kings, and one of children (Josephus C. Apron 1.18, Ant. 8.13.1), she raised Baal/Satan; with all corruption above the True God Jehovah, requiring Israel to worship Baal/Satan.  This is always the objective of Satan, and his servants. 

(b)  Why they will allow such is a mystery at present.  However, it will happen, and have to be dealt with forcibly.  Jezebel (BC 820) was the daughter of Ethbaal King of the Zidonians.  She was a Phoenician, who were derived of the Canaanites.  The Canaanites were derived of human and Nephilim stock, and as they do not appear to have been wiped out as per the order of Jehovah, there may yet be a Nephilim gene pool in the world today.  If this is the case; it would go a long way to explaining the intense hatred of Israel that exists.  It would also help to explain how easily the Nations surrounding Israel are moved against the Jews, and the "One True God".  The fact that Elijah must yet return to act on the behalf of Jehovah, and for the Jews, prior to Christ's return, also mitigates for a similar situation as that of Elijah's first time on Earth, when he fought against Jezebel and the priests of Baal/Satan, (1Kings 18:17-40), and where also Jezebel had brought Israel to the stage where they were following her/Satan's ways; which Elijah challenged (1Kings 18:21).  In this verse, she, or her principle are using the same approach to turn Israel against Jehovah, and His Truth.  Also; in Zechariah 14:21, there is the statement that "the Canaanite shall no longer be in the house of Jehovah Zebaoth", after Christ's return; implying that He will complete their demise.  In Encyclopaedia Britannica (VII, page 232), this idea is supported by the text, that Jesus is possibly a "Nazarite", because the specific vow of the Nazarites is against the Canaanites, and their religious pagan (worship of Satan) practices and teachings.  A type of this principle is Samson.

Again the warning is not to succumb to Satan in any of his guises! 

 

2:22

Behold, I do cast her into a bed, and them that commit (a)adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of her deeds. 

(a)  “Adultery"; the physical of this is tiny compared with the spiritual.  The spiritual is certainly what is being referred to here as well as the physical.  Jezebel who controlled the priests of Baal (of Satan), was and will be a very prominent agent of Satan, and will use the same ways and means she employed in the past, all of which greatly appeals to the fallen nature of men and women.  The events in all media at the present time, are only a prelude and conditioning, compared to the terrible conditions that will prevail for the 7 Churches/ Ecclesia (groups). 

 

2:23            

And I will kill her (a)children with pestilence; and all the Churches (7 groups) (b)shall know that I am He which searcheth the reins,(d)minds/ and hearts: and I will give unto each of you (c)according to your works. 

(a)  The children of Jezebel.  Almost certainly the principle of Jezebel, as well as Jezebel's own children, (followers) therefore many of them.  As all these children are executed in judgement; and as they are known by Christ for their hearts and minds; there is the implication that they are doomed beyond redemption.   

  

2:24

But unto you I say in Thyatira, as many as have not this (a)doctrine, and have not known the depths of Satan, as they say; I lay not upon you any other burden. 

(a)  “Doctrine," i.e. teaching referred to in Vs. 20,21,22 & 23, which are clearly related to the historic Jezebel.  Her control of the Satanic priesthood of Baal, which included the practice of female prostitutes and priestesses, and many other sexual perversion and deviant behaviour as the required form of obedience and worship to Baal/Satan, seem here to have been revived, (see Isa. 28:14-18).  If this is so this verse relates to the statements in Rev. 14:4, regarding those 144,000 with Christ (The Lamb) in Rev. 14:1, and is a prerequisite to their ceremonial condition.
