Judgment on Jezebel, 8/10/16


So many of America's women have a Jezebel spirit infection, the vast majority I believe, in varying degrees. Even a lot of women who belong to the Lord have it. This haughty spirit horribly distorts their thinking and leads women to think the most inappropriate things about relationships with men. Because so many of the men are of the Ahab spirit they are attracted to it. I used to be. But it repulses me now. It has them saying, "I'm so strong, I'm so sexy, you want me, don't mess with me, I am in control, can you handle me?" It is totally antithetical to true womanhood and it makes real men who want a relationship with a good woman want to vomit. Real womanhood is humble and gentle and feminine not bold and audacious. God is about to judge those with this spirit in a serious way in our nation:

Isaiah 3:16-26 New King James Version (NKJV)
16 Moreover the Lord says:
“Because the daughters of Zion are haughty,
And walk with outstretched necks
And wanton eyes,
Walking and mincing as they go,
Making a jingling with their feet,
Therefore the Lord will strike with a scab
The crown of the head of the daughters of Zion,
And the Lord will uncover their secret parts.”
In that day the Lord will take away the finery:
The jingling anklets, the scarves, and the crescents;
The pendants, the bracelets, and the veils;
The headdresses, the leg ornaments, and the headbands;
The perfume boxes, the charms,
and the rings;
The nose jewels,
the festal apparel, and the mantles;
The outer garments, the purses,
and the mirrors;
The fine linen, the turbans, and the robes
24 And so it shall be:
Instead of a sweet smell there will be a stench;
Instead of a sash, a rope;
Instead of well-set hair, baldness;
Instead of a rich robe, a girding of sackcloth;
And branding instead of beauty.
Your men shall fall by the sword,
And your mighty in the war.
Her gates shall lament and mourn,
And she being desolate shall sit on the ground.

Real, godly womanhood is exemplified in the bible in the stories like Ruth and Esther, women of humility, loyalty, grace and courage. Peter said this to women:

1 Peter 3:1-6 New King James Version (NKJV)
Submission to Husbands
3 Wives, likewise, be submissive to your own husbands, that even if some do not obey the word, they, without a word, may be won by the conduct of their wives, 2 when they observe your chaste conduct accompanied by fear. 3 Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel— 4 rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 5 For in this manner, in former times, the holy women who trusted in God also adorned themselves, being submissive to their own husbands, 6 as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, whose daughters you are if you do good and are not afraid with any terror.

How many American women do you know who are like that? Precious few, if any. The selfie-mad culture of most American women today is directly the opposite of what Peter taught. No wonder these pitiful women are unmarried and not respected, they are driving all the good men away. How sad. I wish they would listen when I tell them they are making themselves repulsive with their behavior that they think is so sexy. God help them. It makes me want to wretch.

(Prayer) Lord, bring the spirit of judgment and the spirit burning to purge the Jezebel spirit out to the women who will be a part of the remnant:

Isaiah 4:4 New King James Version (NKJV)
4 When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and purged the blood of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and by the spirit of burning,

Bring the judgment that will lead to repentance so that those who will let you humble them can be set free. Have mercy, Lord, have mercy and judge so that this sickening madness will stop. Thank you Mighty God. Amen.
