The lord urges us to be sober and vigilant because the wiles of the devil can deceive a true believer. The wiles of the devil work privily and devour the souls of those who work against God. Those who haves strong convictions shall never be corrupted with the lies of the devil when they are enticed through lust. When we use righteousness to prevail over the wickedness of the devil, the devil flees from us and looks upon other souls to devour.
Consequently in 1 Kings 21:23
The seductress Jezebel worshiped the pagan God Baal and became destructive therewith. Overtime Jezebel became very manipulative and corrupted the lives of her husband, the king, and all of Israel. Just as Elijah had prophesied Jezebel would die a slow painful death before she could correct her mistakes. Jezebels actions contributed to her demise and she experienced a violent and brutal untimely death.
