When Jezebel, the queen mother, heard that Jehu had come to Jezreel, she painted her eyelids and fixed her hair and sat at a window.

~2 Kings 9:30, NLT


Evil is a parasite, not an original thing.

~C.S. Lewis

my thoughts red

Ironically, the name Jezebel means, “chaste, free from carnal connection”; but by nature she was anything but. She was a ruthless, heartless, and licentious woman. She was totally committed to luxury and sensual pleasure, with all the tawdry arts of a wanton woman. She was a slut masquerading as a queen. Thus no name could have been more inappropriate for such a despised and evil female.

You have a connection with a mother: you either are one, you are married to one or you came from one. What would a mother do upon hearing news that her son has just been killed in the prime of his life? The mothers I know would be devastated. What did Jezebel do moments after her son Joram was killed? She sat down at her dressing table and put on her make up, did her hair and then sat in the window to be seen. She didn’t even mention her son’s name. She did not mourn or weep; she was in seduction mode but her beauty and charm let her down [about three stories down].

Is Jezebel the most wicked woman in the bible? She is the most popular of the evil females but her step-daughter may be number one. Her name was Athaliah and she murdered all her grand children except one that an aunt hid.

  • Praise God from whom all blessing flow; praise Him Jack and praise Him Joe. What a wonderful rain. I would guess a quarter to a half inch. We got more at church than we did at home but we got two showers: the first settled the dust and next made mud. THANK YOU JESUS!
  • For those who missed Sunday, we are doing school supplies but they will not be given out at the BP. We are going to give them to the three Danville Schools. We are also going to adopt a teacher. Big Mama has already adopted Mr. Hardy which means a pound cake for his birthday.
  • Carmen Livingston will be at DGH a couple of more days and then go to rehab for 21 days.
