Revelation 2: Thyatira, Jezebel

Sister/Professor Joanne, thank you for this wonderful blog: Revelation 2: Thyatira, Jezebel.

And I quote: “It is the first thing Jesus spoke about. Jezebel was not a prophet by the Spirit’s anointing and appointment.
She was a prophet by her own choosing and pronouncement.
Credentials are only valuable when God gives them. Credentials from human institutions do not necessarily carry God’s divine anointing, God’s approval, God’s authority, and God’s supernatural empowering.
Jezebel claimed credentials that were, in God’s eyes, false.” graceandpeacejoanne

This was so fascinating and propelled me to look deeper into this piece of very important history that I thought might offer some additional insights that are very relevant today! And oh was I sensing revelation in the air as I began to formulate a clearer vision of what this all could offer to the current people of this gravely troubled world perhaps in the nick of time for some, including me of course!

To me there must have been too much pride involved in her not relenting and admitting fault, in order that she might repent and reconcile with God her error. But another thought came to my mind that I was thinking does delve into the question of whether or not her being a woman in and of itself could have played a role in her self-inflicted demise via another snare of the Devil. The following statement I quote was one that jumped off the page because I think there is a parallel with events occurring today.

“Jezebel was teaching God’s easing of boundaries.”

That word boundaries is to me so very important to understand what Jezebel was up to and how being tempted by Satan comes in many forms of outward behavior and inner thinking that can ensnare a soul.
I began to look at how “boundaries” have been stretched, altered and in some cases done away with in today’s haphazard social order and even the natural biological constructs! And if I’m correct in this then think of how many people are not only overriding God’s “will” by basically rebelling but are also blaspheming Him.
The whole transgender thing to me is absolutely a blatant affront and denial of God’s authority and absolute truth.

This Scripture came to mind immediately!

Genesis 5:2 “Male and female He created them, and He blessed them. And in the day they were created, He called them “man.” 3When Adam was 130 years old, he had a son in his own likeness, after his own image; and he named him Seth.…”

Grace and Peace, Joanne

Jesus was not concerned that Jezebel was a woman overseer in the church. Jesus was concerned that Jezebel was a bad leader, one who falsely claimed God’s anointing, and led God’s own astray.

Bad Leaders

Bad Leaders are bad leaders, whether male or female.

Self-Proclaimed Prophet

Now there are varieties of gifts but the same Spirit, and there are varieties of services but the same Lord, and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in -everyone.- 

To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.

– To one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom

– and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit,

– to another faith by the same Spirit,

– to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit,

– to another the…
