Jezebel versus Ahab

‘Blind cyaan lead blind,’ A dat wi seh ina Jamroc

I found these two characters to be an interesting set.  They both complimented each other.  When we talk about compatibility, these characters are a true example. 

It is funny, as i read i observed that Ahab’s laziness and lack of manhood fueled Jezebel.  Their union is built on trust and loyalty.  Did you know even Satan’s advocates are capable of being loyal and trust worthy to their kind and their mission?

Ahab knew that where he falls weak that Jezebel would stand.   As i read further, i realized Jezebel did not rob Ahab’s ‘PANTS’ she wore his pants permissively.  She also trusted Ahab’s ability to be a king who doesn’t delivers, a king who is confused, a king who slumbers, a king who is unwise and foolish.  Like wise, Ahab trusted Jezebel to take charge and to get things done.  Jezebel’s position as a wife demonstrated an encourager/motivator, giver, a fighter, a comforter, a defender, a disciplinarian, a story teller, a planner, a navigator….in short she gets things done.  Jezebel was dominant, her personality is the ‘DRIVER’ the ‘EAGLE’ .

Would you say Jezebel was indeed a great wife?

Would you say Ahab was the typical husband?

Or would you say they both played their part well?

Let us now flip the story as it reveals.  The same spirit that runs through Jezebel, is the same spirit that led Eve to disobey God.  Have i gotten your attention?

As i read i wondered to myself why is it i have always heard if you are seductive, lustful, competitive etc chances are you are walking with a Jezebel spirit?  Here is the thing.  As i got deeper in 1 Kings, i discovered all of the kings of Israel walked with the same spirit that Jezebel walked with, so then how is it we have not said you are walking with a Jeroboam’s spirit?

This is what i discovered.  Jezebel’s character spoke loudly as she played the bisexual vilan in Ahab’s life.  She understood what it meant to dominate, to take charge, to navigate and to devour not only that but she knew what she wanted and what she believed.  She worshipped her ownself and taught others to worship her by worshipping baal.  So by bisexual i meant she knew when to unzip her pants and when to pull up her pantihose.

Now is she an ideal wife to copycat? No, why?

Jezebel is never wrong in her own eyes!

Was Eve an ideal wife to follow? Yes, why?

Eve knew how to receive corrections and knew how to supplicate.

Was Ahab an ideal husband to learn from? No, why?

Ahab was a sloppy man who was inconsistent with his balls (what we may refer to as guts)

Through 1 Kings, with emphasis on the story of Jezebel, it is evident as wives we must be careful what we encourage/motivate, why we comfort and how, where we plant and what, how we discipline and why etc.  Because just as how Jezebel restructured the natural order of man and wife, if we are not careful what we entertain, the under wears we wear becomes confused.  We become in between roles of wife and husband.  Jezebel played priest in the home because Ahab failed to consistently play a priest, he failed to accept satisfaction because of greed causing Jezebel to activate the provider in her. 

The language we speak and the words we speak really constructs the home of our soul.  Jezebel’s language was that of baal so her language and life became mirrored by baal’s demons.  Their decisions were a result of their language. 

What is your language?

If Ahab spoke from a soul of confidence in the God of Abraham and Moses to uphold his commands, do you think Jezebel would have caught his eyes?

I believe you are what you attract.  Where there is Jezebel, there is an Ahab.  Where there is baal, there is destruction.  Where there is God there is life in all situations.

What will you attract?  Will you attract life or death?

Prayer:

Mighty God, the God who answers by fire, the God of Abraham and Moses, i ask that you forgive me if at any point i change the natural order of my marriage, of my ministry, of my friendships or of my relationship with you.  Father grant me strength to overcome the temptations of this life that i may always surrender to your will.  Lord i pray that i will be the wife of much Grace that you want me to be, the woman that you want me to be, the husband you want me to be, the man you want me to be, the child you want me to be, the student you want me to be, the teacher you want me to be in short the leader you want me to be.  Grant me new Grace daily in Jesus’ name Amen.
