Are You Partaking of Jezebel’s Table?
Today I feel led to write yet more about Jezebel, particularly about how Christians who are living in sexual sin are in actuality eating from her table (1 Kings 18:19 KJV). The following scripture was brought to my mind.
How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much
torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and
am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
I was once one of these type ‘Christians’, I convinced myself that God understood my needs and winked at my sexual sins. I was amongst the willingly ignorant. When Jezebel says she sits as a queen she is essentially saying she can do as she pleases without regard for experiencing any repercussions because her lord the king doesn’t care. As Christians we are called the ‘bride of Christ’ for good reason; he is our King. As such we must recognize that we must live chaste lives unless we are married, and there are no exceptions.
Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be
partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; Christ will not be joined to a harlot. We cannot be double-minded (serving two masters), by eating at the table of devils and the Lord’s table.
For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no
greater burden than these necessary things; That ye abstain from meats
offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from
fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye
I have trouble explaining to many people that quite often scripture has layered meanings, both spiritual and literal. For example, when Peter is commanded to ‘rise, kill and eat’ in Acts 10:13 (KJV) at first he doesn’t comprehend the meaning. It isn’t till verse 28 that the Holy Spirit revealed to him that the Gentiles have been ‘cleansed’ in order to receive the good news of the risen Christ. But in addition God has also literally cleansed the meats so that none are unclean.
We see Christ illustrating this in his condemnation of the Pharisees (Matthew 15:16-19 KJV) who accused Him of eating without washing His hands. He plainly said that what you put in your mouth cannot defile you, but what comes out of it.
Another example also involving Peter is how Jesus seemingly tells him to take up his physical sword in Luke 22:36 (KJV). But then just 13 verses later Peter reminds Jesus of what He previously said and acting in accordance strikes off the servant of the Chief Priest’s ear. But Jesus makes it whole again. In Matthew’s telling, (Matthew 26:52 KJV) we are told that Jesus rebuked Peter for doing so and warned him that those who live by the sword shall perish by it. He who has ears let them understand what the Lord was saying to Peter, and by extension all of us through this passage. Scripture is actually quite clear that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal.
The same applies to what the disciples were told of the Holy Spirit concerning outward sin. The fornication spoken of in Acts 15 was both physical and spiritual, yet so many are living in sin without correction. They think they are okay with God because their pastors don’t correct them, but allow them to unashamedly attend their churches with their live-in girlfriend or fiancee. But their pastors are at best hirelings who do not care for the sheep, but are in it for the money (John 10:12-13 KJV).
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but
inwardly they are ravening wolves.
In addition to the hirelings there are also ravenous wolves amongst the sheep. Jezebel aligns herself closely with the religious, she is a religious spirit. She literally fed the prophets of Asherah at her table. This is why I continually warn people who rail against the Pope and Catholic Church even while they live their compromised lives thinking no one sees their deeds. The true Great Whore spiritually speaking is both the Catholic Church and her daughters which are the Protestants and anyone else who claims to serve Christ but really serves a false one. Literally speaking, America is modern day Babylon and will indeed burn with fire, but I digress.
But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation
seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign
of the prophet Jonas:
These Christians seek after a sign that they are on the wrong road, instead of heeding the sign of the prophet Jonah. What is that? People like me warning them! Their sinful state has grieved the Holy Spirit whom has long left them, without them even noticing (Ephesians 4:30 KJV). Reality check; If the Holy Spirit has departed from you, you are no longer saved! Once again, I am ashamed to say that I was once one of them. I expected that God would somehow supernaturally stop me from fornicating. But that is not how He works.
The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall
condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a
greater than Jonas is here.
Remember the rich man who implored Abraham to send someone from the dead to warn his brothers (Luke 16:19-31 KJV)? What was he told? Even if one was sent from the dead they would not heed them! I count many from both my relatives and friends as amongst these. I have tried to warn them, but they will not listen. I am kept up at night praying that they will see the truth.
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish;
because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should
believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but
had pleasure in unrighteousness.
God has shown me that many have reasoned in their hearts to themselves that once they actually see the beast and his mark only then will they finally repent. Clearly, these people never had the faith that a true salvation experience requires. Now is the time for repentance, because once the beast arrives upon the scene this strong delusion sent from God will set in. You who live deliciously now and feast upon the sins of the flesh will quickly be taken under the influence of this strong delusion and forget what you have learned.
Speaking for myself, as I drew closer to the Lord the Holy Spirit began convicting me of where I was displeasing God. He convicted me of my excuses and convenient interpretations of what the act of sex actually entails. It was good that my heart was toward God, and many say ‘But God knows my heart’, but that isn’t enough. We must bring our flesh under control and repent of these things. Even now as you read this some of you are hearing that still, small voice pleading with you to repent. I implore you to obey.
Esau gave up his birthright for a bowl of soup. Will you give up your eternity for a toss in the sack?
