Revelation Lesson 5 Day 3

The false prophetess in Revelation is referred to as Jezebel likely to describe her similar character and influence. She taught and seduced (caused to wander). The word translated as seduced “never means mere error as such, but fundamental departure from the truth.”

This situation sounds similar to the Nicolaitans mentioned in the warnings to other churches. It appears this heresy was a widespread problem among the Asian assemblies and perhaps other areas also. It needed to be dealt with quickly and decisively. God wanted the congregations to deal with it themselves.
