Well I think we can agree that Jezebel does not meet in Spirit and truth, nor do the men that do her bidding.

1Kings 21:7 And Jezebel his wife said unto him, Dost thou now govern the kingdom of Israel? arise, and eat bread, and let thy heart be merry: I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.

1Kings 21:11 And the men of his city, even the elders and the nobles who dwelt in his city, did as Jezebel had sent unto them, according as it was written in the letters which she had sent unto them.

1Kings 21:15 And it came to pass, when Jezebel heard that Naboth was stoned, and was dead, that Jezebel said to Ahab, Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give thee for money; for Naboth is not alive, but dead.

She came to steal, kill and destroy. She is a liar and follows the father of lies. This is why it is crucial for the church to deal with sins as described in Matt 18. This is the perfect example of a leader who "stumbles" the little brother that Jesus rebuked in Matt 18 saying it would be better to have a millstone around your neck. She is the contrast to the good shepherd who seeks the lost sheep. It is an evil spirit that permeates what she is about. Then when she is exposed it is deny, deny, deny. There is no truth because the truth is that she is a liar who has come to steal, kill and destroy.
