It is sometimes surprising how violent the Bible can be. Jezebel’s death at the end of 2 Kings 9 is fairly brutal. One of the things you have to respect the about the Bible is that it is real and it holds back nothing. God is loving and He is just. Jezebel was evil and God judged her for her evil acts and He did not hold back in painting the picture of judgement on her. We must look to God for His love, but anyone who mistakes His ability to love for His ability to judge misses the whole picture of the nature of God. Let us not short-change God for who He is and what His expectations are of us.
