Jezebel's End

"And also concerning Jezebel the Lord says: 'Dogs will devour Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel."

God's servant Jehu carried out the execution of the wretched, idolatrous, adulterous, bloodthirsty Jezebel.  The dogs consumed her body, and Jehu noted the fulfillment of this Word of the Lord given by Elijah.

While I've never heard of anyone naming their daughter Jezebel, many people live like Jezebel, pressing their agenda of greed, pride, idolatry, and injustice until the end falls upon them!  God's Word carries many warnings to the ungodly.  Take heed, enemies of God!  Take heart, children of God.  His Word of judgment will come upon all His enemies!

In the end, God always prevails, and His Word is always fulfilled.  Let us repent and cling to Jesus, that we may avoid ever becoming like Jezebel!

O Lord, so many around us today live as Jezebel, in superstition, in idolatry, in greed, in violence, in utter rebellion against You.  Enable us to see and believe that Your judgement will certainly come.  In this way preserve us from all temptations to evil, and keep us in repentance and faith in Jesus.  Amen.
