There is a church in the book of Revelation called Thyatira, which is known for different types of people that are part of it. One group of individuals that are faithful to God and are known for doing good works, charity, and service towards others. Their faith is strong and they do things through the patience that God gives them. However, among these people, there are some that are two-faced, and others that are simply not faithful to God at all, which have sex outside of marriage, have affairs, and/or look at pornography when not at church. What they have done is allowed themselves to be given over to women who have the Jezebel unclean spirit in them. These women are led by Satan in their seducing of people in the faith, which God’s wrath is upon. John wrote, “and unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. 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.” (Revelation 2:18-20)
God has given different women space to repent of their seducing and immodest ways, but they have not repented or come to God in their confessions. Therefore, all the men that she sleeps with, the children will die in her womb in miscarriages. Every man who is caught up in such sexual sins will also fall into great tribulation. God searches people’s hearts and knows who is for or against Him. That is why in death or Jesus’s coming, they will get exactly what they deserve. John continued and said, “and I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. 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. 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 2:21-24) Satan is causing so many people to forget God and get entrapped in sexual affairs, which is so saddening. Did you know that most of the internet searches today have to do with pornography? No wonder why many people are sex-crazed.
No matter what you are caught up in, God is able to forgive You and change your life in return. His power is able to do a work in our lives that we are unable to do on our own. Through His power, we can live like Jesus, which is our greatest example. It is also wonderful when men and women of faith rise up in the government, in order to rule the country under God’s guidance and direction. What God through us is so amazing. Don’t forget God’s words when he has called us to repent and hold fast in the faith. Don’t ever think that you can live like the world and repent later, for it could very well be your last. However, repent of your wicked deeds, especially fornication, adultery, homosexuality, and pornography. Give it all to God and you will no longer be mixed up with the Jezebel spirit, but the Holy Spirit. John ended with, “but that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” (Revelation 2:25-29) You are a blessed church member for God if you submit your lives to Him.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that we will all listen to You and do as You say and not what our flesh desires. I know that if I was not giving heed to Your direction and warnings for my life, I would be like other people in the world where sexual sin would rule my life. I give You thanks for conforming me into a new person that has the power to resist temptation. It was earlier today that I saw an ad on the internet about a topless picture of a famous women singer. And although I was intrigued at the moment because of lust, You helped me quickly click away and close out the page. Thank You for helping me get over the urges of looking at pornography. In the past, these ads would have sparked something in me to look at porn and gratify the flesh. But I didn’t have You in my life then. Thankfully, I surrendered my life to You and now my desires are to give and not to receive. You have been able to tame my lusts and keep them at bay. Sure, at times I fall, but You are able to get me right back up when I do. In these moments, You hear my cries and all my confessions. Thank You for hearing me and seeing how sorrowful I really am. I can’t believe how patient and loving you are. I don’t deserve Your love and forgiveness, but You give it nonetheless. Thank You, God. I give You honor and all my respect and praise! I love You. Amen.
