Revelation 2:20 – But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants to practice sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols.
Anywhere the Jezebel spirit is tolerated, sexual sin is celebrated.
In 1 Corinthians 5:1, the Apostle Paul says, “It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that is not tolerated even among pagans, for a man has his father’s wife.”
In this case, the church gets naughtier than the culture. In today’s day, we’ve got a few denominations like that. Tolerance is only mentioned a few times in the Bible. It’s always negative. It’s always a vice to be repented of, never a virtue to be celebrated. And tolerance is the counterfeit of repentance.
It’s why in Revelation 2, Jesus says in effect to the church tolerating the Jezebel spirit at Thyatira, “You have tolerance and you need repentance.” The Bible says that God is good, and we are bad, that the Word of God is right and our behavior is wrong. Therefore, we need to repent of our sin. The Lord Jesus Christ lived a life without sin, He died a death for sin, and He rose to forgive sin and to defeat the demonic. We need to apologize, own, repent to the Lord Jesus our sin, receive Him as our Savior and ask Him to change us, because there’s something wrong with us.
Tolerance says you’re good, not bad. Your life is to be celebrated, not changed. You don’t need Jesus. You’re perfect just the way you are. In fact, you are Jesus.
What does this look like?
85 million people are part of the Church of England globally and they now have their first nonbinary priest. They also are now allowing people to pray to God as Father or Mother.
The United Methodist Church now has a drag queen who is finishing their ordination to become licensed clergy and their “ministry” is to go into churches, going up on stage where the Bible should be taught, and do drag queen sermons for children.
All you must do is just tolerate Jezebel and let her spirit do what she wants. This tolerance is demonic. Woke denominations have become woeful abominations.
Have you seen tolerance in the church today? Pray for churches who tolerate evil to repent and turn back to God. If you need help finding a Bible-believing church in your area, email us at [email protected].
