*JEZEBEL*: The Road to Idolatry

.
***
Matt 21:44 tells us about the stumbling stone of truth that will break men. Jesus Christ who offers salvation by faith and not by works, and thus asks that human pride be humbled. (1 Pet 2:6-8) Jezebel capitilizes on those who stumble. In fact the spirit goes further, it goes out of it's way to deceive many into stumbling on the rock of truth.
Rom. 10:2-5 - "FOR I BEAR THEM WITNESS THAT THEY HAVE ZEAL FOR GOD, BUT NOT ACCORDING TO KNOWLEDGE. FOR THEY BEING IGNORANT OF GOD'S RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND SEEKING TO ESTABLISH THEIR OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS, HAVE NOT SUBMITTED TO THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD.
FOR CHRIST IS THE END OF THE LAW FOR RIGHTEOUSNESS TO EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES."

It was this stumbling block that Christ taught about in His parable about the labourers in the vineyard. Paul in his letter to the Romans, pleads to their congregation that they pray for the Jews, because this was a major stumbling block for them.
In Paul's letter to the Hebrews he devotes much energy to explaining the old and New covenant. He also explains in detail the role of the high priest. Religion and ritual bring with it a lie. It is the lie of Jezebel.
It is the lie that salvation is earned by religiosity and good works. The word says this about salvation : Rom 10:9-10
"...THAT YOU CONFESS WITH YOUR MOUTH THE LORD JESUS AND BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT GOD RAISED HIM FROM THE DEAD, YOU WILL BE SAVED. FOR WITH THE HEART ONE BELIEVES UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND WITH THE MOUTH CONFESSION IS MADE UNTO SALVATION."
***
In order for satan to place a stumbling block before someone, he has to first convince you that you cannot go before the throne of God. This is true if you have not yet done what is required of you: namely that you accept in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord of your life.
Take note of Jezebel's tactic: first tell a half-truth - that God is a holy God and cannot associate with sin, but it is not true that we must by our works make ourselves righteous before Him. Once this half-truth has been accepted, then the laborious task of constructing a veil of self-righteousness begins.
This elaborate veil will exude much good intention. Good works, voluntarily going without etc. The only problem is that it persues the Law. A task that is impossible to accomplish. They stumble on the Rock, they stumble on Jesus, and they fall into Jezebel's embrace.

But surely we cannot be condemned for good works? This ir true! So where is the problem? Once again Jezebel uses the tactic of a half-truuh: It is true that we are expected to do good works, that good works are pleasing to God, but they are not what makes you righteous before God.
"... FOR WITH THE HEART ONE BELIEVES UNTO RIGHTEOUSNESS..."
