Tolerance of Jezebel

12-27-06

I have this against you: you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess… she misleads my servants… she is unwilling [to repent].
Revelation 2:18-21

Jezebel is used here as an epithet for a prominant woman in the congregation who’s undermined loyalty to God by promoting tolerance toward pagan practices. She is a spiritual mother to all who pursue antinomian doctrines ( a person who maintains that Christians are freed from the moral law by virtue of grace as set forth in the Gospel).

I am not to tolerate the behavior of those who are compromising the Word of God and His children’s faith.

Lord, please keep this in my remembrance, but also help me to forgive. Through You I have strength. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
