by Debi Pearl from No Greater Joy – The Jezebel Profile
Editor’s note: So this is the last part of what Debi thinks you should not be like. Next piece Debi makes some, um, interesting interpretation of the Proverbs 31 woman. Blows my mind that she thinks that saying your husband would not allow you to do something is an evil cop out. This is a religion that forbids any type of independent action or thought, constantly using the excuse of the husband not being served by these things. You really cannot do a darn thing right in this theology.
Jezebel knew that she was not the rightful head, so she invoked her husband’s name to give her word authority. Did you ever say, “Oh, my husband will not let me do that,” when you knew in truth he really would not care? It is a way to maintain control and stop those who would question you. When a woman does this, she stops any ministry God has to her.
Jezebel was deeply concerned about spiritual matters and took steps to help promote her spiritual leaders. In the process, she provoked her husband to destroy those in spiritual authority she did not like. Have you ever influenced your husband to think evil of those in authority because you did not like something about them? When a woman comes to this place she might as well sign her name “Jezebel.”
God has a plan for women. He revealed his will in many verses in clear, concise commands. He gives a revealing picture of what he abhors in a woman by introducing us to Jezebel, then reaffirming in the New Testament just what it was about her character that he found so despicable.
