The subject is ‘THIS SPIRIT CALLED JEZEBEL -Part 1
The book of REVELATION chapter 2 verses 18 to 29
“And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like a flame of fire, and his feet are like unto burnished brass: I know thy works, and thy love and faith and ministry and patience, and that thy last works are more than the first. But I have this against thee, that thou sufferest the woman Jezebel, who calleth herself a prophetess; and she teacheth and seduceth my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed to idols. And I gave her time that she should repent; and she willeth not to repent of her fornication. Behold, I cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of her works. 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 unto each one of you according to your works. But to you I say, to the rest that are in Thyatira, as many as have not this teaching, who know not the deep things of Satan, as they are wont to say; I cast upon you none other burden. Nevertheless that which ye have, hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and he that keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give authority over the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron, as the vessels of the potter are broken to shivers; as I also have received of my Father:
and I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches”
From the passage, we see the church of Thyatira, one of the seven Churches of the book of Revelation as shown to the Servant of God, John in Island of Patmos. They were commended for their works, charity, service,faith,patience and last deeds by the Son of God who has His eyes like a flame of fire and His feet like fine brass.
The last word in the passage shows that the Church outdid herself. Her works was greater toward the end of her lifetime than they were at the beginning.
BUT, there were some deep rooted problem as well.
This drew our attention.
What was the problem?
We see it in verse 20 of the passage.
“But I have this against thee, that thou sufferest the woman Jezebel, who calleth herself a prophetess; and she teacheth and seduceth my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed to idols”
The church allowed a germ which gave a big name to herself. God said, "that woman" is His problem. Her duty was to teach and seduce God's servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. No wonder, the holy God pronounced judgement against her and her followers. God gave a space for her repentance but she prefer to suffer by the hands of an angry God in the great tribulation.
Friend, I'm talking about the spirit of this woman.
One may ask " What? Jezebel? Didn't she die back in the book of second kings? How can this woman be threatening the church in Asia?
Obviously, the literal person of Jezebel was not present in Thyatira. The reference is a prophetic parallel. The influence in this city was under the spiritual control of the same demonic influences that controlled Jezebel of old.
