That Woman Jezebel

Something striking that I notice about this sculpture is that although the woman is made to look beautiful, there is something very masculine and androgynous about her. The same could be said about our "statue of liberty"...the intense look of the face and it's strong and subtly angry features, the posture, and the position of the shoulders to the collarbone, seem to lend it a "masculine air". Interesting that Michelangelo often used male models for his artwork of women and simply "added breasts" a search on his works and you can see this is true.

This series of videos has some startling information about "that woman Jezebel" that when seen together show us a portrait of a "spirit of deception" that has taken a deep hold on modern society. From terms such as "Mother Earth", Gaia, Venus, Diana, Lilith, we see the strong female "liberated woman" of today who has control over her body, her finances, her destiny, her men, and even in positions of power over many men, women in high leadership positions of today's government systems. Mrs. Obama also is much more active and visible than "first ladies" of the past. The fact that Jackie Kennedy was as forward as she was (much more so than first ladies previous to her) led some to criticize them at the time, though many more idolized her...

What does the Bible tell us about the spirit of Jezebel?
Rev_2:20  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.
(also do a word search on Jezebel and read about her interactions with Elijah in 1 and 2 Kings.)

I knew much of what is said in these video clips already, but it helped me to organize my thoughts about what I already knew, and filled in some gaps of info on this that I didn't know, and helped me better understand how far we are in God's timeline here on earth....

Rom 13:11  And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
Rom 13:12  The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
Rom 13:13  Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
Rom 13:14  But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
