you tolerate that woman jezebel: spiritual deception in the last days

JEZEBEL AND AHAB: BAAL WORSHIP VERSUS WORSHIP OF THE LORD

Ahab son of Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord more than all who were before him. And as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, he took as his wife Jezebel daughter of King Ethbaal of the Sidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him.He erected an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he built in Samaria. (1 Kings 16:30-32)

Prior to the reign of Ahab, King Solomon’s drift into idolatry set the scene for Israel’s spiritual degeneration, eventually resulting in Israel’s split into two separate parts, Israel in the north and Judah in the south. Jeroboam son of Nebat became king of the northern kingdom and he replaced the true worship of the Lord with idolatry. He made two calves of gold (Exodus 32), built houses on high places (places of idolatry) and he also replicated the festival at Judah. Ahab committed the same sins and set up an altar for Baal in the temple of Baal (the Canaanite storm god) which he had built in Samaria and he also made pole(s?) dedicated to the goddess Asherah.

The often used phrase "to walk in the sins of Jeroboam" was the negative example held up time and again against the evil kings of Israel. Ahab had gone down the wrong path and followed his immediate predecessors by committing the same sins. It was not ‘a light thing’ to walk in the sins of Jeroboam, but if that wasn’t bad enough, Ahab’s marriage to the Baal worshipping Phoenician princess Jezebel took him to a different level of wickedness. He earned the dubious reputation of doing more evil than any of his predecessors:

There was none who sold himself to do what was evil in the sight of the LORD like Ahab, whom Jezebel his wife incited. (1 Kings 21:25; 1 Kings 16:30-33)

Ahab was probably insecure in that he felt that he needed to make alliances with other nations to strengthen his position as Israel’s king. It appears that his marriage to Jezebel was for political reasons to strengthen relations between Jezebel’s father Ethbaal, king of the Phoenician empire and northern Israel. He was looking for his security in earthly alliances, something which always involves compromise. Ahab was also very selfish and immature. When he failed to acquire Naboth’s vineyard he went home resentful and sullen - He lay down on his bed, turned away his face, and would not eat. (1 Kings 21:4) Jezebel clearly had the knack of keeping Ahab happy by getting him what he wanted.



The Chilling Character of Jezebel 


· Jezebel was an enemy of Yahweh.

· She was idolatrous – Baal worship and Asherah worship

· She was a murderess – Jezebel killed off the prophets of the Lord. (1 Kings 18:4,13) The true prophets of Yahweh were her principle victims so that she could inflict Baal worship onto the population by force.

· She instilled great fear causing the remaining hundred prophets to hide for their lives in a cave. (1 Kings 18:13)

· The way that she acquired Naboth’s vineyard for Ahab is very revealing:

She was unscrupulous, clandestine, subversive and sinister; she had no respect for the rights and wishes of others; she was guilty of plotting and scheming against the innocent, involving others in her evil plans with lies and deceit producing false witnesses; she abused her power, stopping at nothing to get what she wanted, the result being Naboth’s death. (1 Kings 21:7-16)

· She patronised 850 false prophets of Baal and Asherah who ate at her table. (1 Kings 18:19)

· She issued a death threat to Elijah and instilled great fear in him. (1 Kings 19:2-3)

· She incited Ahab to do evil. (1 Kings 21:25)

· She was guilty of many whoredoms and sorceries ( witchcraft) - When Joram saw Jehu, he said, "Is it peace, Jehu?" He answered, "What peace can there be, so long as the many whoredoms and sorceries of your mother Jezebel continue?" (2 Kings 9:22)

· She was a seductress and attempted to beguile Jehu - When Jehu came to Jezreel,Jezebel heard of it; she painted her eyes, and adorned her head, and looked out of the window. (2 Kings 9:30) {see also Proverbs 7 - the adulterous woman}

· She was described by Jehu as a cursed woman. 2 Kings 9:34

THE WHEAT AND THE TARES





THE BOOK OF REVELATION - THE CHURCH IN THYATIRA 


Jezebel’s name comes up again in the book of Revelation:

But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants to practice sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols. (Revelation 2:20) .....But to the rest of you in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not learned what some call "the deep things of Satan”, to you I say, I do not lay on you any other burden;only hold fast to what you have until I come. (Revelation 2:24-25)

The church in Thyatira is commended for their love, faith, service and patient endurance (Revelation 2:19). This seems like a glowing report, but their toleration of "that woman Jezebel" meant that the judgement of God would result unless those involved in it repented. In contrast the Ephesian church is commended for not tolerating evildoers, that is by testing and exposing false apostles (Revelation 2:2). Some in the church at Pergamum who live "where Satan’s throne is" are also following false teaching by holding to the teaching of Balaam and the teaching of the Nicolaitans (Revelation 2:14-15). Jezebel, the Nicolaitans and the teaching of Balaam have the same traits and the terms seem to be interchangeable. Nico means to conquer and laitan means laity, and so the meaning is to conquer or subdue the laity. There are a number of heretical factions within the end time church(es) claiming to have divine insight who are in fact agents of Satan. The phrase "the deep things of Satan" are attached to the name of Jezebel, so we can expect the traits of the historical Jezebel to be present in the end time church. There are many warnings in the bible about spiritual deception. The avoidance of testing and exposing false teaching is as good as condoning it and those leaders who turn a blind eye are culpable before the Lord. Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1) The wonderful gift of prophecy comes with awesome responsibility - the true church absolutely must have the gift of spiritual discernment for its survival (1 Corinthians 12:10).

The specific errors are: Food sacrificed to idols and fornication (Revelation 2:14, 20). The Apostle Paul advised that food itself is neutral and that Christians should not be paranoid about eating food sacrificed to idols. There are some mixed messages to unravel about food sacrificed to idols in the New Testament. Participation in an idol feast would be wrong and this may be what Paul is alluding to at times (Romans 14:14; 1 Corinthians 8:4-8; 10:20-21, 25-27; see also Acts 15:29; Revelation 2:20). Some have linked this verse to Roman Catholicism and the doctrine of transubstantiation i.e. the doctrine that the whole substance of the bread and wine changes into the substance of the body and blood of Christ when consecrated in the Eucharist. The doctrine of transubstantiation would not have been known to the apostles, though it is indeed a wicked doctrine which perverts the sacrifice of Christ who died "once for all" (Hebrews 10:10). It seems to me that this error of "food sacrificed to idols" was being committed by the literal church of Thyatira in some other way as it pre-dates the Roman Catholic doctrine by several hundred years (The Council of Trent in 1551), though of course it may also have prophetic implications for Roman Catholicism as some assert. The whole point is that whatever draws us away from true worship of the Lord is spiritual fornication and that there is no separation between the physical and the spiritual as in Gnosticism. Paul taught that nothing is unclean in itself but earthly desires are idolatry: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness (Romans 14:14; Colossians 3:5). This follows on from what Jesus Christ said: …..whatever goes into the mouth passes into the stomach, and so passes on? But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a man.For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, fornication, theft, false witness, slander. (Matthew 15:17-19) Balaam’s error is also greed…. for the sake of gain (Jude 1:11). The money preachers of today are one example of Balaam’s error.

FALSE PROPHETS TODAY 

False prophets have always been with us and they are certainly here today. Jesus Christ warned that false prophets are a major sign of the end of the age:

And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. (Matthew 24:11 See also Matthew 7:15; 24:24; Mark 13:22; 2 Peter 2:1; 1 John 4:1.

As with Jezebel, true prophets and prophecy are usually the first thing to be attacked by antichrists, albeit in a very subtle way. Rick Warren of Saddleback Church discourages the study of Bible prophecy as a distraction. He quotes Jesus out of context in his book ‘The Purpose Driven Life’: Anyone who lets himself be distracted [by Bible prophecy] from the work I plan for him is not fit for the kingdom of God (Living Bible). This is an unbiblical statement considering that prophecy takes up 27% of the Bible and that the church has been given the gift of prophecy by the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 14:3). Jesus actual statement had nothing to do with prophecy: No one who puts a hand to the plough and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God. (Luke 9:62) This is how devious the enemy is in our world today and this is exactly the kind of deception Jesus and the apostles warned about in advance.

Religious syncretism is another problem. Ahab’s alliance with Baal worship is comparable to political correctness and the Interfaith movement at the expense of the one true God. While we tolerate the "mixture" of different belief systems we are actually tolerating ‘other gods’ which are an abomination to the God of the Bible (Exodus 20:3). Christianity stands alone and apart from all other religions in that it claims the exclusivity of Jesus Christ as God’s Son and Saviour: I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6) We can’t have it both ways; If the Bible is right, then all other religions must be wrong or vice-versa. A choice has to be made one way or the other - we cannot justifiably hold both opinions together:

And Elijah came near to all the people, and said, "How long will you go limping with two different opinions? If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Ba'al, then follow him." And the people did not answer him a word. (1 Kings 18:21)

Were The 2012 Olympics An Occultic Event?


The 2012 Olympics in London were the 30th Summer Olympic Games. This number includes three Olympics that have been cancelled due to World Wars: 1916, 1940, and 1944. Hence the Roman numerals XXX representing 30. XXX also has a number of other meanings, amongst other things it is a well- known pornographic symbol, and significantly in Pythagorean numerology and in occult symbolism it is 666. Both XXX and WWW are occult symbols for 666.

Despite denying that the Olympic logo does not spell Zion, it is clear that the five objects do spell the word. The cost of the design for the Olympic logo was $1M! It has been said that a child could have designed the logo, but there is much more to this infamous logo than meets the eye. It seems simplistic and even childlike on the surface, but is in fact a very complex cryptogram. The YouTube link below has some very interesting observations about the geometric designs embedded within the Olympic logo which demonstrate a direct link to Satan. It has been speculated that the Olympic games was a huge occult ritual and that a major occultic event was planned for the Olympics. It is worth noting that in the satanic calendar the 20th to the 27th of July is a satanic holiday, July the 27th being the Grand Climax Satanic Ritual:

In the Satanic calendar, July 27 is the Grand Climax of night after six nights of ritual. On this night there is a blood sacrifice, oral, anal, and vaginal sex are required, and a female or child victim is captured for Lammas day to be sacrificed on August 1, a high Sabbat Day and feast of the Sun god. Human and animal sacrifice is absolutely required on Lammas Day in Satanic ritual. (balaamsassspeaks.blogspot.co.uk)

The Olympics also coincided with the Jewish day of mourning, Tisha B’Av commemorates the destruction of the two Temples. The destruction of the two Temples took place on the same day – the ninth of Av - about 656 years apart. This year Tisha B’Av falls on the 28th of July.

Apart from the logo itself, everything to do with the Olympics was saturated in the occult. The God of the freemasons is Osiris (Hiram Abiff) who is Lucifer . According to legend Osiris’ body was cut into 14 pieces by his brother Set and scattered throughout Egypt. Isis found all but one of 14 body parts and Osiris was reborn, not to live in this world, but to live in the afterlife as king of the dead. The practice of mummification is said to have originated with this legend where the 14 body parts were magically reunited. Were these 14 pyramids with their capstone lights a symbolic coming together of the fourteen body parts of Osiris (Lucifer) at the Olympics? Below the pyramids were black inverted crosses in between the seats. Biblically the number five is associated with death, 2012 added together equal 5. In the occult the number 5 is the pentagram. The fourteen pyramid lights 1 + 4 = 5, or 13+1 are designed around the Great Seal of the United States as found on the dollar bill. Novus ordo seclorum on the dollar bill is Latin for "New Order of the Ages".

The practice of the Olympic flame or torch was reinstituted in the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam having originated in Olympia, ancient Greece approximately 2700 years ago. The tradition goes back to sun worship. Prometheus stole the sacred element of fire from Zeus, the father of the Gods and gave it to mortals. The torch is a symbol of enlightenment, something the New Age movement have very high on their agenda. In 2012 Ino Menegaki who played the role of "high priestess" invoked the sun God of ancient Greece Apollo in prayer before kneeling to light the torch as the sun's rays focused on the parabolic mirror:
"Apollo, King of the sun, and the Idea of light, send your rays and light the sacred torch."

The true identity of this "god" Apollo is revealed in the bible as Abaddon which is Apollyon in Greek meaning destroyer: They have as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit. His name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek he is called Apollyon. (Revelation 9/11) The invocation said when the flame is lit is to Phoebus Apollo - Phoebus (shining one) Apollo (destroyer). The name of Lucifer means lightbearer and so the pieces of the puzzle fit together to reveal the fingerprints of Satan all over the Olympics.

If the above seems a bit "conspiracy theorist", when we examine the "Light of Olympia" invocation we can surely no longer doubt:

Sacred silence
Let the sky, the earth, the sea and the winds sound.
Mountains fall silent.
Sounds and birds' warbles cease.
For Phoebus, the Light bearer King shall keep us company.
Apollo, King of the sun and the Idea of light,
Send your rays and light the sacred torch.

Apollo God of sun
and the idea of light
send your rays and light the sacred torch
for the hospitable city of London
And you Zeus give peace to all peoples on earth and
wreath the winners
of the Sacred Race


Olympic Anthem:

Immortal spirit of antiquity,
Father of the true, beautiful and good,
Descend, appear, shed over us thy light
Upon this ground and under this sky
Which has first witnessed the unperishable fame.
Give life and animation to those noble games!
Throw wreaths of fadeless flowers to the victors
In the race and in the strife!
Create in our breasts, hearts of steel!
In thy light, plains, mountains and seas
Shine in a roseate hue and form a vast temple
To which all nations throng to adore thee,
Oh immortal spirit of antiquity!


The Olympic Games are an abomination to the Lord, but this is just a foretaste of the "abomination that makes desolate" spoken of by the prophet Daniel (Daniel 11/31; 12/11). It goes beyond irony that the Church of England should associate itself with the Olympics and its Luciferian connections. Nevertheless they issued special "prayers" (actually curses) to accompany the relay on its tour of England. These "prayers" were used by many of the Church of England's 16,000 churches as the torch passes through their communities or close by. The Bible says: Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. (Ephesians 5/11)

 


HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT

At the beginning of the Olympic promo film made in 2009 below there are white birds circling the stadium. These I assume are doves representing peace. At the end of the film these birds are black and form the shape of a pyramid from which they are released. Demons are symbolised as vile birds in the bible. This is very indicative of the way that the Antichrist will appear, bringing peace initially and then when he removes his mask he will reveal his true satanic nature, his so called "peace" will explode into terror. (Daniel 8/25; 11/21)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWwsxgXo7TE&feature=plcp

And when birds of prey came down upon the carcasses, Abram drove them away. (Genesis 15/11)
And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. (Matthew 13/4, 19. See also Mark 4/4, 15)

"Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! It has become a dwelling place of demons, a haunt of every foul spirit, a haunt of every foul and hateful bird; (Revelation 18/2)

The Olympic Games were loaded with occult symbolism and it seems that no detail was overlooked. This is very concerning because of the end time scenario depicted in the Bible. The word "antichrist" is made up of two roots:αντί +Χριστός (anti + Christos). "Αντί" can mean not only "against" and "opposite of", but also "in place of" and this fits exactly with the Bible narratives. For instance Lucifer said "I will be like the Most High" (Isaiah 14/14).

The term "antichrist" appears five times in the Bible. In the New Testament it appears in 1 John 2/18 where it refers to many antichrists and also to the end time Antichrist. 1 John 2/22 identifies the Antichrist as a liar who denies the Father and the Son.

…..and every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of God. This is the spirit of antichrist, of which you heard that it was coming, and now it is in the world already. (1 John 4/3)
For many deceivers have gone out into the world, men who will not acknowledge the coming of Jesus Christ in the flesh; such a one is the deceiver and the antichrist. (2 John 1/7)

From the above it is clear that there have been many antichrists (plural) in the past. These can be identified in history as people like Nero and Antiochus Epiphanes. In fact the Bible says …..the whole world is in the power of the evil one.(1 John 5/19) Biblically the spirit of antichrist denies Jesus Christ as God’s Son which is to deny the Father Son relationship and God’s plan of salvation through his only Son Jesus Christ. Peter stated: "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God." (Matthew 16/16) but the spirit of antichrist denies such a fact.

While at the present time the Antichrist is here in spirit and influences people towards evil, there is to come the end time Antichrist, an actual person who will be the culmination and fulfilment of all the previous antichrists and who Satan will fully enter into. Satan has only entered one other person in history, Judas Iscariot (Luke 22/3; John 13/27) for a very short period of time. The Man of Lawlessness, the final Antichrist, is the second person who Satan will enter into for a period of three and a half years, half way through the tribulation. Both these characters share the title "Son of Perdition"

2 Thessalonians 2 summarizes the nature, work, coming, and revelation of the "Man of Lawlessness". This passage is often regarded as referring to same person as the Antichrist of 1 and 2 John.
The philosophy of a one world government (New Word Order) is no longer a secret agenda, it is openly spoken about by politicians and the worlds so called "elite" powerful people. This approaching one world government is a clear sign of the Antichrists imminent arrival onto the world stage (Revelation 13/13). There is an explosion of the occult all around us and there is also a massive falling away (apostasia) relating to Christianity which is predicted in the Bible (2 Thessalonians 2/3; 1 Timothy 4/1; Amos 8/11 ).

It is worth noting that the Bible is 100% correct prophetically up to this point in time so it would be very foolish to ignore it as a vital source of information which is history written in advance for our protection and warning.

Sooner or later Satan is going to put his plan of world domination into action literally as the Bible predicts. Such an event as the London Olympics may be a significant stepping stone towards this event since Europe will be his first target to be dominated. The Antichrist is called the Beast by both Daniel and John. This "beast" rises up out of the sea (sea meaning peoples or nations).

It is clear that we are in the end times and that the biblical events are definitely going to take place. The question is not if but when these events will take place and whether the 2012 Olympics and all the hype about the 21st December 2012 were relevant to the timeline of the Antichrist . The New Age Movement put a lot of emphasis on 2012 as a time for a shift in human consciousness, but Satan is deceitful and it may all be a total diversion.

No one could possibly dispute that the Olympic invocation was satanic. Added to that, the obvious symbolism and the Olympic flame representing the lightbearer Satan carried a curse all around our country. Undoubtedly great evil was invoked through this event.

With such a formidable enemy, the only thing to do is trust in the Lord Jesus Christ and Him only as it says in the Bible.

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, "I am the light of the world; he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8/12)
