The most wicked of all Anti-Christ spirits operating in the church worldwide is the Jezebel spirit.
This spirit goes for church leadership or tries to form its own spiritual groups and authority structures by any means possible. A person hosting this spirit is driven by a hunger for power and material gain but the spirit’s main aim is to drive as many people as it can to hell.
This spirit operates more often in women than men.
A person hosting a Jezebel spirit is a master of counterfeit and deceit. She will fool you and her closest associates for years.
I have personally come across this spirit in only one christian man but I am now losing count of the number of women that I have met that are in the early or later stages of this spirit. I have mentioned elsewhere that the nature of man makes them less likely to be used by the devil as a host of this spirit. I am sure that there are some men out there who have this spirit.
A person carrying this spirit cannot submit to any authority, let alone a husband. This spirit has no respect for holiness and purity that comes through the gospel or does it respect Godly structures like marriages and churches.
Such a person is showy in everything, wants to portray perfection when its visibly not there. They always have the right spiritual jargon to fool you.
This is the same spirit that operated in queen jezebel, the wife of Ahab.
“And it came to pass when Joram saw Jehu that he said, ‘Is it peace, Jehu?’ And he answered, ‘What peace so long as the whoredom of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcraft are so many?’” (2 Kings 9:22).
Whoredom also refers to a betrayal of faithfulness, breaking of vows, and prostitution of self and others for advancement. The whoredom spirit will sell itself and you out. The Jezebel spirit is not faithful in relationships, word, or deed.
If you fell in love with a person hosting the Jezebel spirit you will certainly get your heart ripped out.
“For a whore is a deep ditch, and a strange woman is a narrow pit. She also lieth in wait as for prey and increaseth the transgressors among men”
The Jezebel is the strange woman. Give this spirit a lea way in your life and chaos and destruction will follow.
Avoid a personal relationships with those having a Jezebel spirit at all costs.
If it’s a family member, sort it out with God. Pursuing a relationship with someone that has this spirit is a spiritual suicide
This spirit operates mainly through three other spirit; whoredom , witchcraft and the spirit of divination.
Many servants of God with sincere hearts for ministry have been brought down by Jezebels.
One sure way of knowing that you are dealing with a Jezebel is a sudden opposition for anything prophetic, anti deliverance and a sudden surge of impure thoughts . If you entertain more fellowships with this woman, there will be more issues and it will lift God’s anointing from you.
The best thing is to cut any relationship, pray, enlist someone else to pray with you and if you are married enlist your spouse. This is not a joking matter, you are dealing with a satan-woman spirit. Weather you are married or not, run. A jezebel has two sides, the seductive side when she wants to get you or your position and the extremely vile side when she is attacking you. Don’t be fooled by her seductive side.
This spirit is characterised by broken relationships, broken or troubled marriages, pure deception, mockery of the work of deliverance, character assassination of the prophetic voices in the church, cold battles between worshippers and church splits.
Where a Jezebel spirit is tolerated and operates freely, everyone is at war with each other. Spouses , friends , children, parents and worshippers.
It’s also an opportunistic spirit seeking friendships with those who have been hurt by their loved ones and are nursing wounds. The jezebel host comes in to comfort them and in the process wins their confidence.
A Jezebel is always sniffing for any crack in your marriage or other relationships. If they sense that, they then position themselves to be your fallback. If they have an opportunity of defiling you or your spouse spiritually they won’t hesitate. They will do it even if it means using sex to inject a spirit of rebellion in you via your spouse.
A Jezebel does not care about sex as in marriage. Sex is a tool for punishing non compliance partners, gain power or gain material in her environment . Sex is also like an opium dose to calm her restless and wickedly sad heart.
Although many jezebels have looks that are not anywhere close to beauty queens, they use the demonic seduction that makes them irresistible to their targets.
Some women in the church will not even suspect a Jezebel to be a danger to her own marriage because of her deceptive looks and by the time they know it, it’s too late. This normally happens to her close friends who get so psychologically affected after discovering the evil side of the Jezebel that they may never recover.
Through her loyalists, a Jezebel will spread rumours that the affected person is mad or has a demon spirit.
Sex is used by the Jezebel not only to gain power, proof her worth, but also to defuse any moral/spiritual authority in that person or family.
A Jezebel often operates under a counterfeit spirit , the opposite of the Holy Spirit , this is a mixture of the spirit of witchcraft and the spirit of divination. Witchcraft clouds the minds of those around her for easy deception, divination is the counterfeit of discernment that makes a Jezebel look spiritual.
In the Jezebel spirit world, it’s not about Jesus , its about self, it’s about her, it’s about personal achievements, it’s about class, it’s about titles (e.g. prayer warrior), it’s about power and it’s about wealth. You can debate on anything or plan whatever, but the attention should always come back to her. She feeds and lives on praises from men (and women).
Many God fearing men and women have started churches and ministries that eventually collapsed from a mixture of ignorance and compromise. They set out for an easier option of operating under soulish powers but denying the power of the Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 3:5). They could not survive the onslaught of the Jezebel spirit.
Where the Holy Spirit is, there is discernment , humility and obedience. A counterfeit spirit will not flourish around a spirit filled individual walking in humility and obedience . We are supposed to drive out evil spirits not to cohabit with evil spirits. The disciples in the early church did just that. Acts 13:6-12 , Acts 8:1-25
You will be surprised by how many genuine pastors are willing to ‘face’ the enemy without the power of God. This is mainly because of operating under a spirit of religion, personal pride , personal achievements, not genuine but doing it to for financial gain,unwillingness to learn from the Holy Spirit and lots of other reasons. They resist the Holy Spirit guidance instead of yielding. We are supposed to resit the devil and submit to God.
James 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you
The presence of the Jezebel spirit in the church creates a cloud of witchcraft hanging over the worshippers. This brings doubt, strife, demonic fear and encourages worldliness to operate freely within the members.
Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
My experience shows that many women hosting this spirit are not even aware they have it. This makes them very dangerous. Jezebels negative words and curses are laced with evil. They have profound effect on unprotected targets.
Jezebels unknowingly recruit followers who marvel at her rebellious nature. The unsuspecting believers in the church and sometimes her own children take this behaviour as a virtue from a strong woman.
Jezebels plan and plot to create parallel power structures within the body of Christ. The power structures have nothing to do with redemption of man from evil, but sinisterly formed groups to satisfy personal egos , to edify themselves and trap other influential persons around them.
Most do this unknowingly from the spirit in them that pushes them to elevate themselves to a position of recognition and influence. They seduce their ways into leading prayer , choir , youth and women groups. Elbowing out legitimate leadership from these groups. Once they are on top of these groups, they start influencing and undermining all decisions made by the church leadership. Some people call this Jezebels, Pentecostal witches.
Jezebels are attracted to each other like a moth to a light bulb. Prayer groups and social clubs with highly religious practices are formed. Jezebels in general are very religious which is part of the deception. They are also easily deceived. If a Jezebel was once speaking in tongues, normally they don’t cease but the devil uses them to blind people. Paul emphasised that we should focus on love not speaking in tongues . 1 Corinthians 13:1
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
Witchcraft prayers are said against targeted individuals in these groups. Targets could be a pastor or another group or an individual who is opposing one of them. You will be surprised to know that most, if not all, in that group are not even aware they have become part of a witches coven. Prayers come us requests for a concern, a claim or some good course , but it’s the the way the payers are said that ushers in an opportunistic spirit making the outcome witchcraft. You can’t pray for people’s will to be bend to your will. That’s witchcraft. God never intended that humans dominate others by forcing their will. Even God does not do that. He let’s us make our own personal decisions.
NB: Many of us confuse whitcraft and occult. Occult involves making a deliberate contact with impure spirits in acts of idolatry directly or through a human agent of the devil. God hates it just like He hates idolatry. Impure spirits are enemies of God.
What really is a Jezebel spirit in many people’s minds?
I don’t know when and where I first heard of the Jezebel spirit but the picture I had in my mind is a complete distortion of what this spirit is! I marvel and get scared every time I think of how wrong I was and how dangerous it is to live in such ignorance. Before we look at what this spirit does, lets see a summary of its destructive nature to the units within the body of christ
This spirit like any other antichrist spirit, has only one mission, to eventually make your soul end up in hell from practicing idolatry and abandoning God.
It does so by first defiling your honest worship of God, then erases memories and evidences that will make your reliance on God look genuine. Eventually making the history of your testimonies and the supernatural work of God in your life become more of your personal achievements
Every person living around a person hosting this spirit is a target and is in danger of spiritual and emotional frustration. Long exposure and frequent conflicts with this person, results in unexplained self destructive traits. This could be taking drugs, alcohol, drop in personal productivity index (if a student, drop in grades ), loss of identity, divorce, prostitution, unfaithfulness, mental confusion, suicide or a combination of several of these traits.
Spouses, children, relatives, social group and church members are prime culprits of this spirit due to their close social interaction.
Men are complete failures in homes and church groups where this spirit is operating freely. They feel demasculinized. No wonder in these prayer groups and churches, the male to female ratio is 1 out of 10.
The nature of a male makes them losers when it comes to witchcraft and the devil knows that.
Please note that the opposite of a witch is a wizard . This is male who practice the same thing as a witch with same destructive traits. Although extremely rare but they exist among the devils agents .
Unveiling the Jezebel Spirit
I personally think that the picture of a Jezebel in many people’s mind is a religious picture that is imprinted in us from a depiction of a supposed image of the Phoenician queen by some bible scholar.
2 Kings 9: 30 When Jehu came to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it, and she painted her eyes and adorned her head and looked out the window
In my carnal world , the Jezebel spirit was a woman with painted eyebrows, eyelashes with a visibly and obvious loose morals in her very nature .
Now I know that if you ever see a woman with this type of description, they are either prostitutes , spiritists , members of a society, religious adornment, cultural requirement or a combination of some these. Women do paint their faces in eastern religions as part of their cultural requirements for protection from evil.
If the severity of these women’s activity to the body of Christ is measured from 1 to 10. The level of danger such women pose is 1 to 2 which is more less the same danger level we also pose to the church. I believe our enemy wants us to believe that these women represent the true picture of a Jezebel living among us.
A real Jezebel is a level 10 and can only be identified by closely looking at the fruits of the Holy Spirit in an individual or through discernment.
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness.
The Jezebel spirit operated undiscovered for many years until Jesus named it in the book of Revelation 2:18-29.
It’s my guess that this spirit was behind what queen Jezebel (the wife of Ahab) did to the Israelites. She led them to do evil like never before which made Ahab’s legacy as king, the most evil reign ever. During her time, the people were spiritually defiled the temple of God was full of idolatry and adultery. Some of the things that happened in there are a complete abomination to God. A reflection of what this spirit is in general doing to the body of Christ.
Rev 17: 3 And the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, where I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. 4 And the woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls. She held in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality.
1 kings 21:25
There was never anyone like Ahab, who sold himself to do evil in the eyes of the LORD, urged on by Jezebel his wife.
Jesus saw the same spirit operating in a woman in the church of Thyatira . This must be why He gave the evil spirit this name. He warned the church about tolerating this spirit. Whereas there are many evil spirits in our churches today , Jesus singled out this spirit because of its deceptive and destructive nature to the body of Christ .
Because of its seriousness Jesus promised a reward to those that will come against this spirit. Revelation 2:26-28.
No wonder, Elijah the prophet who first came out against this spirit , did not face death like other people. God had to reward him by taking him away physically. 2 Kings 2:11
I was for many years a church going christian but I didn’t believe in evil spirits, demons or impure spirits. You will excuse me for using terms that mean more less the same thing. I frustrated many of my family members because I had a very atheistic mindset. The spiritual world was a no go zone because it was to me, foolish. I grew up not believing in the effect of demons on us through someone else for example witchcraft, occult and related. I was a ‘modern’ human not living in ‘ medieval ‘ and ‘backward ‘ ideologies, so I thought .
The jezebel spirit thrives among people who don’t believe in the existence of evil spirits just like I did.
When I started believing in the existence of evil spirits and accepted to be delivered from all that operating through me and in me, my world changed. I started living in sincerity, my mind changed from being carnal to spiritual, my perspective to everything changed. I became aware of my spiritual me and spiritual environment. The activities and the effect of this environment started to become clear. I was aware that my suffering then and spiritual limitation was due to exposure to evil from a young age. Read my testimony here.
When Jesus and His disciples walked here on earth, impure spirits came out of many. Some of these people were in the synagogues and could have counted themselves as living right but harbouring impure spirits that opposed God in their very lives.
Luke 7:21 At that very time Jesus cured many who had diseases, sicknesses and evil spirits, and gave sight to many who were blind
Acts 8:7 For with shrieks, impure spirits came out of many, and many who were paralyzed or lame were healed
If you hear anybody mocking deliverance and spiritual warfare, look no further, they are a host of evil spirits. It does not matter if they are Pastors, Vicars or they call themselves Prophets!
Fighting the Jezebel war
Therefore, we cannot fight this spirit with a casual approach to spiritual warfare (See Tools of Spiritual Warfare). This spirit does not relent in this war. It’s a battle to death.
We must be fully alive in the Holy Spirit world.
We must change our way of thinking, repent our sins and give our lives to Christ without a reservation.
A Jezebel spirit operates in two ways or sometimes in two steps
- Seduction (not the sexual type) . Although if the target is a man this type is not off the table
- An all out open war against its victims
Seduction is a first step towards a person holding influence in a community or a church. This could be a wealthy person, a leader or a prospective spouse . It may take years to win this person but a Jezebel can be patient. Within this period, a spiritual and social defilement is injected in the victim. In the end the target is unable to free themselves spiritually or take counsel from other people. At this point, the only confidant and friend they have is the Jezebel. Once a Jezebel has attained that position of trust, security and influence she starts wedging a full war against her victims without any iota of mercy.
A Jezebel takes no prisoners in this war and literally pushes the victims to self destruct.
A Jezebel is a master of producing the worst reactions from her target.
A Jezebel also operates by creating fear in her victims. She creates many cowards. Nobody wants to cross her path. Many targets have gone looking for help within a jezebel spirit environment and they have been shocked to find that the very people they are confiding in are ‘cowards’ and Jezebel loyalists. It’s like holding on the very teeth of the lion you are running away from!
Psalm 22:13 Like lions they open their jaws against me, roaring and tearing into their prey.
Bottled up bitterness and anger characterises those that fall victims to this spirit . This is a spiritual defilement and one of the self destructive ways on your spiritual authority.
We need to be vigilant and guard ourselves against reacting to the jezebel spirit and losing our spiritual authority. If we are alive in the spirit, we need to learn how to get rid of these reactions. It may not be easy because it feels like performing a surgical procedure on yourself without a local anaesthesia. It’s painful to carry out when you are doing it against a reaction to someone who is spewing venom towards you.
Ephesians 4:31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice
1 Peter 5:8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
We must let the Holy Spirit create in us a new nature full of His grace, love and forgiveness towards persons that are being used by this spirit to curse and plot against us.
We cannot fight this fight religiously but spiritually. We have no choice but to unlearn the past spiritual ‘truths’ as we know them and let the Holy Spirit teach us what we ought to know.
Just like other ‘truths’ we hold on in ourselves as Christians, many of these are carnal in nature and are from bible commentaries written in theological colleges, seminaries and passed on to us by our pastors, vicars, bible teachers and others. We quote and unconsciously accept them as true sources.
Many servants of God who ought to be spending time listening from the Holy Spirit aren’t doing that instead they deliver distorted messages to congregations that are not inspired or taught by the Holy Spirit.
In order to know what a Jezebel is, you have to forget the religious picture of this person in your mind.
The Jezebel is not a person but a spirit living in a person. It’s a high level intelligent spirit that uses the person to accomplish its purpose. Although it can enter a man, but the nature of a woman makes her a perfect host for this spirit. Most women who have it are not even aware. They crave for leadership and manipulation of their environment which gives them a sense of control. People who come between them and their goal become targets of the Jezebel wrath. A person with this spirit is identified by the victims as a control freak, nasty or a pure evil person. The person has a craving for leadership and because of this nasty characteristics the victims are more willing to give away their positions of leadership to ease the mental pressure they are subjected to. Jezebel hosts are very energetic in mind games and therefore make people around them very tired. Nobody can follow through the Jezebel agenda.
The danger that the Jezebels pose to their unsuspecting victims is not in the control or loss of leadership but the defiling nature of this spirit. This spirit is an anti-christ spirit with an aim of killing the body of Christ or turn it into counterfeit groups led by it’s doctrine. It’s starts by defiling the victims spiritually then socially.
Another very dangerous characteristics about this spirit is the ability to create gangs. It creates loyal followers (eunuchs) who are mostly under its witchcraft to fight it’s battles. Sometimes forming a coven of witches with some of the persons in the group unaware that they are part of an evil scheme of the devil. They agree and say witchcraft prayers thinking that they are serving God but if they looked closely they are serving a spirit under a command of an individual among them.
When this spirit is operating in a prayer group or church, victims feel hunted and cornered. Victims usually get themselves in trouble by questioning what they see. They unwittingly and naively find themselves confiding in Jezebel loyalists.
My best advice with such a case is to leave the group immediately. The defiling nature of the group will not help but sink you further into trouble.
1 Corinthians 5:19-11 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people—was not including the sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.
Psalm 1: 1 Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers
Seek God and ask for help in finding sincere Christians operating outside of that group. The next step will be to give yourself a period of healing and spiritual cancelling. Healing can take time.
Many people say that it’s next to impossible for a person with a jezebel spirit to come back to God. I believe everything is possible with God. If you see this spirit in a person, continue praying for them for the bible says there is nothing impossible with God.
Mathew 19:26 Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
The Jezebel Host
If you call yourself a born again christian and you have most of the following characteristics then it may spell danger or beginning of danger to you. It means you are a potential jezebel spirit host or already a jezebel spirit host.
A Jezebel host can either be a woman or a man but in most cases it’s a woman. I will use traits from a woman since they are the most common
- Delight in demasculinizing men in positions of authority in church or at home
- Have a deep craving to be identified as a prophet or spiritual
- Mock the idea demonisation of Christians
- Take rebuke or exposure of evil as an unfair judgment
- Tend to pray long prayers in public and you secretly wish to be heard and praised by people
- Thrive in controlling and manipulating people
- Not submissive but rebellious to any authority and especially your husband
- Can fall in sin and continue functioning spiritually ok without repentance and with no condemnation.
- Not faithful to your spouse or authority
- Highly critical of everybody
- Quick to attack someone by prayer, words or gossip
- Pray and ask others to pray specific prayers to control outcomes on someone [ This is called witchcraft prayers]
- Don’t believe in spiritual deliverance. Instead you mock it.
- Have a deep hunger for approval by people
- Have a deep hunger to be accepted by everyone
- Money and material possession is very important
- Get easily angered or offended (This spells the presence of evil spirits living within you. Evil spirits are easily offended)
- Don’t easily forgive and always pass blame to others
- Hold grudges even those that are not directly yours
- Train people to hate or join you in hating someone
- Inject doubt about someone’s chacrater to others
- Can’t concentrate on anything
- Are unable to sleep
- Get tired all the time without a reason
- Are restless and always worried
- Mind races all the time and knows nothing about being calm
- Unable to forgive others
- Uncomfortable or feel ashamed in the precence of a Holy Spirit environment
- Can only function in an environment where you first bring down other people
- Is happy when other people are not doing well
- Always looking out for imagined persons who are against you
- Use sex as a tool of manipulation to control spouse or social group
- The red line between what is evil and what is normal has become very grey
- Set others up to self destruct e.g Suicides, drugs (Spouses, children, etc)
- Destroy friendships between other people
- Nothing matters but your rebellion. The preoccupation and talk is about rebellion
- Pride is a virtue to you and you preach it
- If out of the blues, sincere believers near you start having impure sexual thoughts [one of the traits used by this spirits to bring down prophet voices in the church]
- Have a special craving to have sex with close friends spouses ( another trait the spirit uses to indirectly infect other perfect hosts). God new that a perfect way of passing evil spirits is through sex. This had a potential of causing a spiritual havoc to the Jews as they entered and settled in the promised land. He warned them in Numbers 31:17-18.
- Have a personal trail of persons you have closely associated with who over the years have either committed suicide, divorced , left the way of salvation or wish not to be associated with you at all
- Have a broken or a non functioning marriage
- Children rebel against authority and especially their father
- People complain of being tired by being around you
- All your friends are lame ducks and can’t genuinely correct you. It means you have turned them into eunachs
If you have a few of the characteristics above, you may not really have a Jezebel spirit but it’s good to honestly examine yourself and seek genuine help.
Persons with a Jezebel spirit may face a monumental task in getting delivered. Many of them, it’s sad to say may never get delivered not because they have committed unpardonable sin , but because of pride and living around people who are unable to discern this spirit.
Persons with a Jezebel spirit feel energetic and powerful over other people . Many don’t want to loose that power . Many are not aware that they are carrying the deadly spirit
Those that are in close fellowship with a Jezebel end up with similar disturbing traits. This could be mother to daughter, persons in a social or prayer groups.
