Revelation chapter two and the epistle to the assembly at Thyatira warns about a mysterious prophetess called Jezebel. Who is Jezebel of Thyatira, and what are the deep things of Satan which she taught? What does it mean to have a "Jezebel Spirit"?

I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. (Revelation 2:20)

Number 9 in the series Apocalypse of John

The city of Pergamum was one of the most famous places in the Roman world. In addition to a spas, hospitals, and a healing center there, the city boasted an enormous altar to the god Zeus. The story of Satan's throne in Pergamum and the martyr Antipas has a frightening corrolary in the modern world. Listen to a teaching on Revelation 2:13 to discover the meaning behind these cryptic references:

I know where you dwell, where Satan's throne is; and you hold fast My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. (Revelation 2:13)

Number 8 in the series Apocalypse of John

Yeshua rebuked those who claim to be Jews but are not Jews, and he makes reference to the "synagogue of Satan." Who are “those who say they are Jews and are not Jews” who worship in a “synagogue of Satan”?  How do you know if you might not be one yourself? In this teaching, Pastor Lancaster presents an abbreviated version of his article "Synagogue of Satan," an article that appeared in Messiah Journal 113 and is to be included in the appendices of the forthcoming casebound edition of Torah Club: Chronicles of the Apostles.

I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan. (Revelation 2:9)

Behold, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan, who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie—behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and they will learn that I have loved you. (Revelation 3:9)

The release of two stunning new statements, one by the Vatican and one by The Center for Jewish-Christian Understanding & Dialogue (CJCUC) constitutes a Chanukah miracle and a “cease fire” of theological hostility which has characterized the relationship between the Church and the Jewish people for most of the last two thousand years. Listen to excerpts from the Vatican’s Commission for Religious Relations with Jews’ new paper titled “The Gifts and Calling of God are Irrevocable” and the response from the CJCUC paper “To Do the Will of Our Father in Heaven: Toward a Partnership between Jews and Christians.”

For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. (Romans 11:29)

Number 13 in the series 26 Answers to 26 Reasons

Was the New Testament written by eye-witnesses, or was it written generations after the life of Jesus? Reason Numbers 17 of Asher Norman’s book Twenty-Six Reasons Jews do not believe in Jesus states, “The Epistles and the Gospels were not written by the actual witnesses to the events they describe.” The argument attempts to prove a late date for the composition of the gospels, more than one hundred years after the events they purport to describe.

This teaching tells the story of the origin of the Gospels the origin of the New Testament cannon. Learn why critical scholars are so critical, and learn why the Gospel of John sounds different than the Synoptic Gospels.

The book of Revelation revolves around sevens: seven lamps, seven stars, seven spirits, seven churches, seven angels ... This teaching takes a plunge into first-century apostolic angelology to unravel the mystery of the seven spirits before the throne.

As for the mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand, and the seven golden lampstands, the seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches. (Revelation 1:20)
