The Corruption Of Lust
The seductress thinks she's pretty hot and vainly thinks she's a queen in beauty. She's a lusty sort and more often than not, consciously or subconsciously equates sex as love and love as sex, and feels she needs a good man (a prince) to provide for her luxurious desire for creature comfort. It's in her instinctual (carnal) nature and she feels spurned and unloved when men don't lust for her. The Oxford Guide to People & Places of the Bible states that the name Jezebel, is "best understood as meaning 'Where is the Prince?'"
Who can find a virtuous wife? For her worth is far above rubies. The heart of her husband safely trusts her; So he will have no lack of gain. She does him good and not evil all the days of her life.Proverbs 31:10-31
Men will naturally lust after a seductress, but any man with an uncommon degree of common sense (wisdom) won't fall for her wiles or marry her. That's because, though all men and women have lust in their instinctual nature, all good (virtuous) men, consciously or subconsciously, want a virtuous wife, a good woman. Just as all virtuous women, consciously or subconsciously, are looking for their prince, a good, virtuous man, who'll truly love them, and they can truly love.
God is the Great Omniscient Deity of absolute, undying, true love and absolute, undying, true love is not religious. Absolute, undying, true love is absolutely and majestically virtuous by character. The virtues, in all their might and glory, are the characteristics of true love's divine nature.
The instinctual, egocentric nature of the flesh however, is not gender specific and as we all know, there are many male seducers too.
All those in God's League of True Love (Heaven), are similar in character. While their character's are portrayed uniquely, they're mutual by nature and are all perfect gentlemen and gentlewomen (kings or queens) of true love, according to true love's crowning, glorious virtues and their every thought, word and deed, is governed and dictated by absolute, undying, true love, through its majestic virtues, and everyone dwells in absolute peace and serenity (heavenly bliss), because everyone's the best that everyone trusts them to be and they truly want to be, deep down in their heart of heart's (soul).
To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness (majestic virtuousness) of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: Grace (gracefulness & graciousness) and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord (role model), as His divine power (Holy Ghost) has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that THROUGH THESE you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust (and other characteristics of the instinctual, egocentric nature).2 Peter 1:1-4
The Seductress is one of the worst offenders, a tare (injurious, noxious weed), against true love
Virtue of the Week
Gentleness is moving wisely, touching softly, holding carefully, speaking quietly and thinking kindly. When you feel mad or hurt, use your self-control. Instead of harming someone, talk things out peacefully. You are making the world a more civil, gentler place.
But you, O man of God, flee these things and pursue righteousness (virtuousness), godliness, faith, love, patience, gentleness.1 Timothy 6:11
