What can you simply NOT tolerate in church?   

In the letters to the seven churches in Revelation, Jesus never complains about the music, the temperature, the meeting times or sermon topics. But there are things He can’t tolerate. 

What do you think of when you hear the name Jezebel?  

You can read her story in 1 Kings 16-22. She was Queen of Israel who incited her husband King Ahab to make the sexual worship of Baal and Asherah the state religion. She killed those who stood in the way of her husband’s advancement, and all the prophets of God she could find. Even Elijah was afraid of her. God made sure she wouldn’t worshipped after her death—by having her eaten by dogs before her body was recovered.   

If she was brought back from the dead, how would you like to have her as your Children’s Director? 

Or youth chaperone?  

Better yet, what would you think if you looked at your husband’s calendar--and saw her name down for a lunch date?  

In this letter from Jesus to the church of Thyatira, God complains that they are tolerating a prophetess in the church who was living and teaching like Jezebel.  

Come Sunday and see how that worked out for them – and what it means for us.
