SO many Ahabs…. WHERE O WHERE are the Elijah’s of today?
“Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” 1 Timothy 2:11-12
Beware of the weak moral coward Ahabs who promote jezebel ….. This is exactly who Jesus rebuked in Revelation 2:20-24 because these spineless, gutless pansies allowed a woman named Jezebel to be an elder in the church at Thyatira. Case closed.
“Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. 21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. 22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. 23 And I WILL KILL HER CHILDREN WITH DEATH; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. 24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known THE DEPTHS OF SATAN, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.” Revelation 2:20-24
“Brother, quick question… The Bible often speaks against Jezebel… My question is… why doesn’t the Bible likewise speak against Ahab for allowing Jezebel to dominate?”
Well it does…. Read Rev 2:20-24 closely and notice that Jesus is confronting the MEN for suffering/allowing jezebel. This is why we call these type men Ahab. Ahab allowed/suffered his wife Jezebel to rule, to function outside her God-ordained role and the devil wreaked havoc as a result. And the horrific fruit of this is spoken of by Jesus in this Revelation 2 passage, in His letter to the church at Thyatira. This is a life changing revelation.
Ahab was the husband of Jezebel! He was a sinful man who allowed his wife to manipulate and control him. A weak constitution, void of the life of Christ is the makings of a man like Ahab. Only the unrepentant have no conviction or strength in the truth. God says all moral cowards (“the fearful”) are hell bound (Revelation 21:8).
Do you know who Ahab was? He was Jezebel’s husband. She controlled him (1 Kings 21:25; 2 Kings 9:22). Jesus primarily condemned the weak moral coward Ahabs (men) in the church at Thyatira for allowing Jezebel to function. Are you getting familiar with Revelation 2:20-24? If not, you will not see the full severity of allowing any woman to function outside of her divinely ordained order. Elders in Christ’s body are men, only men, never a woman (1 Timothy 2:11-12; 3:2). This is God’s non-negotiable order and it’s for her protection and the protection of those who would be victimized by a woman in an eldership position. Read and meditate upon Jesus’ words concerning the weak men who allowed “that woman Jezebel” to function (Revelation 2:20-24).
“Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest (allow) that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.” Revelation 2:20
Today’s Ahab’s are jezebel enablers! (Revelation 2:20-24) Jesus will condemn! Instead of standing on God’s Word, they acquiesce sentimentally to the woman’s fallen nature and her desire to rule over the man (Genesis 3:16). Beware of such deceivers.
BEWARE OF TODAY’S AHABS
A woman preaching to men?
Sharing, communicating God’s Word among the brethren yes but never arguing, preaching to, overtly correcting, or taking the position of an elder which is reserved exclusively for men (1 Timothy 2:12; 3:2). Observing the severe threat of Jesus when He spoke specifically to the MEN at Thyatira tells us much about the Ahabish MEN today who are telling and enabling women to preach to men in today’s modern church (Revelation 2:20-24).
GOD’s men must never allow women to lead where they are called to lead (1 Timothy 2:12; 3:2; Revelation 2:20-24).
To put ones self under the ministry of a woman who is acting as an elder among God’s people, is to defy Christ, and to agree with His arch enemy and his jezebels and to bring severe destruction on the people of God (1 Timothy 2:12; 3:2; Revelation 2:20-24).
Beware of the half-baked spineless moral cowards who enable and defend jezebel! By doing so they shake their fists in the face of the LORD Jesus Christ (Revelation 2:20-24).
The reason such counterfeits – weak moral coward men/ahabs – have no conviction or holy fear of God is because their own personal lives are compromised in sin (2 Chronicles 12:14). They are therefore moral cowards due to not being real and right with God – who would otherwise give them His holy boldness, conviction, fear, and strength.
“SUBMIT yourselves therefore to God” (James 4:7) – Are we submitted to God as Christ’s disciple? Are we submitted to God in His role as a man, as a woman? Roles.
Jezebels know who they can manipulate/control and who they can’t! They know when they’ve hit a brick wall when they encounter a man to truly fears and walks with God – and therefore will not be manipulated (Eccl 7:26). Elijah. Like a shark that smells blood and hastens to capitalize on its prey, so the jezebel is skilled at knowing where men are vulnerable! Beware.
No man of God allows the women around him to operate outside of the God-ordained role of the woman! (1 Timothy 2:11-12) This was the very sin of the Ahabs in Thyatira! (Revelation 2:20-24)
As is the case when Jesus castigated the men in the church at Thyatira, Ahab men are manifested – brought into the light out of darkness – when jezebel is exposed! These sinful, compromised moral cowards come to the aid of their counterpart rebel – jezebel! Beware!
True men of God speak the truth and stand on the truth – no matter what.
Ultimately Ahab’s and the Jezebels they enable are not rebelling against men (males) but rather God!
Listen to what Paul spoke to a deceiver:
“Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him, 10 And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?” Acts 13:9-10
Many today want to redefine what a man is to be by their own sinful heart imaginations (false images). The word “gentleman” or “gentlemen” never once appear in Scripture. A man of God, as defined by God, is one who will and does serve the LORD according to His Word … true love – Read Proverbs 27:5-6.
“Open rebuke is better than secret love. 6 Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.” Proverbs 27:5-6.
The jezebel doctrine and spirit want to quiet and condemn truth-speakers! They are of the devil!
Grasp this revealing picture, this illustration:
“And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her.” Ecclesiastes 7:26
The devil takes over when we disobey God. When a woman is put into a place of undue authority that she’s not fit to be in, then the enemy comes in through that disobedience – that is, by 1) men not doing what called them to do to servant lead, and 2) when men ignore the Scriptural mandate and allow any woman to fulfill a calling or assume a position of leadership forbidden by God for her role (teaching or usurping authority over men).
“But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.” 1 Timothy 2:12
Remember, Psalm 17:4 says, “By the word of thy lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.“
See, it’s through obeying God, through the Word of His lips, obeying what God said in his Word, which he uttered, and gave us in written form that we keep ourselves from the paths of the destroyer. I’ve seen so many church environments where the enemy has come in through men who are Ahabs, moral pansies. They’re moral cowards. They do not fear God, and they’ll let women usurp authority over men, and teach them in an authoritative, dominating way, and then comes the devil, and he will “kill her children with death,” Jesus said and those people will experience “the depths of Satan.” (Revelation 2:20-24) That Jezebel comes right on in when weak, Ahabish men abdicate (hand over) their calling to lead over to women and “sufferest” or allow Jezebel (Revelation 2:20-24). If you find yourself in an environment like where a women is allowed to teach or usurp authority over men, I encourage you to flee immediately (1 Timothy 2:9-14). Don’t question it. Just obey God and get out of there.
WHERE are the men who will stand and speak the truth-no matter what?!
The Ahab spirit per se is simply what we classify as a weak-minded, weak-hearted man who is not truly serving Christ although he has a mere “form of godliness.” (2 Timothy 3:5) If he were serving Christ instead of the self-life, he would be infused with divine power and be standing up, speaking the truth, and operating as the head of his home in all meekness and godly wisdom, fearing God knowing he will one day give full account before His Majesty.
A Jezebel cannot and will not function where there is a true man of God. Godly men men who refuse to be moved off of truth are the rage, the sworn enemies of jezebels! (Revelation 2:20-24)
The lack of God’s strength in men facilitates, allows, suffers jezebel….. jezebels are no match for God’s power in a crucified man as is seen in the ultimate victory of Elijah over the original jezebel witch 1 Kings 18 amen Jesus!
Here’s a commentary someone wrote on Ahab:
“The Ahab spirit causes a man to be wishy-washy and unstable in all his ways. King Ahab was efficient and strong in manipulative and administrative powers. He was weak and vacillating in the face of his powerful wife, Jezebel. He gave his authority, as king, to his wife and even when she abused it, he remained passive, voiding confrontation, and let her have her own way.
The wife receives the Head position of the home because the Ahab husband doesn’t want it, it takes too much energy. Most people do not realize that if a home is out of order God will allow it to come under a curse. Too many fathers, through rebellion and lust, have not lived a godly example to their wife and children. The end result of this neglect opens the door for rebellious spirits to enter the wife and children. Too many men fail to provide spiritual leadership in their homes and then, too often, the spirit of Jezebel surfaces in the wife causing the wife to be forced into headship of the home which is totally demonic. This is a very serious part of the Ahab spirit at work.”
“The fall of mankind occurred as a result of the woman leading, and the man following. This is the exact opposite of God’s non-negotiable order. As we see in the church at Thyatira, when men allow women to lead there will be chaos every time.” Jeni
Prayer for men by sister Verna D.
“Most Ahab’s Are Cowards and Need Jezebel To Empower Them Because They Are Too Fearful To Stand Alone With God And Too Fearful To Stand Against Jezebel!
A Weak Coward Man Is No Match For Jezebel And He Knows This And Will Willingly Submit To Her Power And Authority Over Him Which Is Demonic! What Is Sad is when a Man Really Wants To Come Out But Doesn’t Know Or Understand The Power Of God Over This Or How To Stand Up! I Pray God Empowers The Men That Are Willing And Desire To Stand That They Will Conquer This Evil Spirit And Territory By The Power Of Christ Jesus And That God Will Give Them The Faith, Strength And Determination To Overcome It All In Jesus Name……”
