Prophetic words from Jezebel's prophets can get you killed. Jezebel was the daughter of Ethbal, king of the Sidonians. Her father was the high priest of the goddess, Ashtoreth a female deity. She was given to wed Ahab, king of Israel, to form a covenant between the two nations. Jezebel was a wicked queen. She set out to murder the prophets of Jehovah by the thousands. The few that remained hid themselves in caves. Others compromised their prophetic ministries and gave themselves to her.
