Some people are able to lie with a straight face continually with no reservations whatsoever without feeling even the slightest hint of guilt.
Though liars may be quite successful and never face justice in the here and now, in the eternal sense, they do not pass Go. They do not collect $200. In the next world there will be no Get Out of Jail Free card. Barring repentance (a very unlikely scenario for the vast majority of those who habitually bear false witness as a way of life and for getting ahead), they will go straight to hell:
“But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” [Revelation 21:8]
But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted. [1Timothy 1:8-11]
But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron… [1Timothy 4:1-2]
AHAB AND JEZEBEL
Ahab was a proud Israelite of royal blood. He came from a line of kings who were each generally more treacherous than the one before. “How can I top my forebears on the wickedness scale?” thought Ahab. “I know! I’ll marry an immoral, lying, demon-possessed Baal-worshipping daughter of a foreign king!
Her name was Jezebel. It is pronounced in the original Hebrew as Ee-zeh’-bel. She hated anyone determined to serve the Lord but had an especially powerful and passionate hatred for God’s prophets. She hated Elijah most of all.
Why so much hate? –Because she was so closely aligned with the devil. One could figure out the devil’s demeanor by her actions. She was a great barometer for the way demons think and operate. Thus, modern Jezebels hate real Christians more than anybody else. They hate real Christians with a prophetic anointing the most. And they absolutely despise the most mature real Christians with a prophetic anointing.
The original Jezebel set her heart on murdering Elijah but failed. The man who later came in the spirit and power of Elijah, the great forerunner John the Immerser, did not fare as well. The Jezebel of his time, the evil Herodias, succeeded in killing him. John’s murderer, like Jezebel, was also an adulterous queen married to a king (Herod Antipas) in defiance of the law and used her own daughter’s dirty dancing to complete the dirty deed.
Ahab said to Elijah, “Have you found me, O my enemy?”
And he answered, “I have found you, because you have sold yourself to do evil in the sight of the LORD. Behold, I will bring evil upon you, and will utterly sweep you away, and will cut off from Ahab every male, both bond and free in Israel; and I will make your house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah, because of the provocation with which you have provoked Me to anger, and because you have made Israel sin.
“Of Jezebel also has the LORD spoken, saying, ‘The dogs will eat Jezebel in the district of Jezreel.’ The one belonging to Ahab, who dies in the city, the dogs will eat, and the one who dies in the field the birds of heaven will eat.”
Surely there was no one like Ahab who sold himself to do evil in the sight of the LORD, because Jezebel his wife incited him. He acted very abominably in following idols, according to all that the Amorites had done, whom the LORD cast out before the sons of Israel. [1Kings 21:20-26]
THROW HER DOWN
Now in the eleventh year of Joram, the son of Ahab, Ahaziah became king over Judah.
When Jehu came to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it, and she painted her eyes and adorned her head and looked out the window. As Jehu entered the gate, she said, “Is it well, Zimri, your master’s murderer?”
Then he lifted up his face to the window and said, “Who is on my side? Who?” And two or three officials looked down at him. He said, “Throw her down.” So they threw her down, and some of her blood was sprinkled on the wall and on the horses, and he trampled her under foot.
When he came in, he ate and drank; and he said, “See now to this cursed woman and bury her, for she is a king’s daughter.” They went to bury her, but they found nothing more of her than the skull and the feet and the palms of her hands. Therefore they returned and told him.
And he said, “This is the word of the LORD, which He spoke by His servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, ‘In the property of Jezreel the dogs shall eat the flesh of Jezebel; and the corpse of Jezebel will be as dung on the face of the field in the property of Jezreel, so they cannot say, “This is Jezebel.”’” [2Kings 9:29-37] 
It seems the longer justice awaits, the bolder Jezebels become, and the more bullet-proof they think they are. But one thing is certain. There is always Jezebel justice in the end.

This word is speaking to me as well, of current events going on in the here and now in our own country. Brought to mind Habbukuk 2, also, http://biblehub.com/nasb/habakkuk/2.htm

There are many prophets of Baal. There is no doubt about this. They are hidden to most because they appear as upright and respectable, and are thus accepted by the culture. People are blinded to their presence and agendas because of their own personal sin, lack of Biblical knowledge, refusal to do any historical research, and refusal as well to have a close walk with the Lord Jesus or be filled with His Spirit. Any culture that refuses the leadership, presence, and mind of the Lord Jesus cannot help but be deceived by evil spirits, Jezebel spirits, Judas spirits, prophets of Baal, etc. All of these have an agenda. It is to obey their ruler, do his will, and attend to his agenda, which is obviously contrary to that of the Lord.
The sad thing about all of this is that many Christians and Christian leaders are also fooled, and deceived due to the same reasons as stated above. Jezebel went after Elijah because he knew exactly what she really was and she could not hide from him. He exposed her. He did his best to reveal her. She had managed to deceive almost all of Israel but could never deceive God’s real prophets.
Herodias did the same toward John the Immerser for the same reasons. Sometimes the Lord will raise up a person who is not a prophet to expose evil, mainly because His own people refuse to act. Jonah had the anointing but ran. The Lord turned him around, though. Most Christian leaders are not prophets to begin with so they can’t be turned around. They do refuse to act, however. Many refuse to act at exposing evil spirits and corruption because they don’t want the spotlight on their own corruption. They don’t want a target on their back. They are afraid of the devil.
There is no doubt that a strong prophetic voice exists in America, but most of these prophets are unknown, obscure, and are forced to make it on their own since most are always rejected by both the culture and by unreal Christianity of whatever form. Most Christian leaders are in league with the culture, have their own personal agendas, are more concerned with success and status, are compromised, and are thus blind to the real perpetrators of spiritual evil. They even fight against the prophetic voice.
Regardless, the Lord Jesus is still fully in charge, will have His way, will take good care of His own, and will continue to expose evil. He must work through His people, however, and thus, His people must be willing. They must remain in a state of repentance and allow the Blood of Jesus to keep them clean, they must stay filled with the Holy Spirit, they must be very knowledgeable of the Word of God, they must do their own research, know history, and stay read-up to discern the times. They must honor the Lord Jesus at all times. They will otherwise be deceived.
This is why so many Christians ARE deceived. There are too many substitutes and counterfeits, and too many are compromised. America is about to go in the tank and these people are still doing the worthless things they have always done, insisting on methods that keep people blind to truth and the presence of the devil. The times have changed dramatically but they’re still playing church.
Elijah and John showed us how to defeat Jezebel spirits, but there is a price to pay.
“A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his own household.” [Matthew 13:57]
