Revelations 2:20 (NIV) …I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet…
This is the most wicked of all anti-Christ spirits operating in the church worldwide. Persons carrying this spirit are very hard to deal with. They can go to extremes by becoming control freaks. They impose themselves as leaders or teachers in all matters.
The unclean spirit make them very deceitful, sometimes very religious, critical of others, bullies and architects of character assassination. Faithfulness to this spirit is a lip-service. It specialises in betrayal and backstabbing! They will never say anything good about someone else especially if they think that they are being out-shined, perceive them as a threat to their position of influence or can exposure their dark side. A Jezebel will only say something nice about someone else as a tactical approach to deceive the listener.
A Jezebel does not have a repentant heart. The word sorry is not in their vocabulary.
Although this spirit is found to operate mostly through a specific gender, it can also be genderless.
In a personal level, where this spirit is, gossip is the main medium of communication. The aim of this spirit is to control people by breaking good relationships between them or breaking their relationships with the Creator. It mocks anything that is worshiped other than itself or what is done in any other way other than it’s way. Persons who have this spirit hate straight and independent minded people. They take your freedom to think and make you feel like a child when you are reasoning with them.
The Jezebel spirit can operate within any religion or culture. A Jezebel isn’t always religious but when it is, it’s subtly mixed with antichrist practices. Jezebel is one of the most subtle antichrist spirits out there. It may only be second to the religious spirits that have taken captive parts of the world population and effectively blocked most of them from ever hearing or knowing the lovely truth.
In general, this spirit sets camp in homes, organised groups, companies and the political arena. It takes people within it’s environment as captives of its ideas. This siege and deception can last for years. The person hosting this spirit controls the rest and is driven by a hunger for power, social influence and material gain. The ultimate aim of this spirit is to set up a system that sells its rotten agenda.
In a Christian setup, this spirit has no respect for holiness and purity that comes through the gospel or does it respect God ordained structures like marriages and genuine worship groups!
The Jezebel spirit is showy in everything, wants to portray perfection when its visibly not there. If religious, they will always have the right spiritual jargon to fool you.
This is the same spirit that operated in the historical jezebel, the wife of Ahab king of Israel.
“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. It simply means that sex is a tool. It’s used for manipulation and power! .
If you fell in love with a person hosting the Jezebel spirit you will certainly get your heart ripped out. Sex will be used to bring you to submission!
Proverbs 23:27-28 “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. Jezebel is not a prostitute as depicted by some scholars, she is a whore. Prostitutes want money for their services, a whore wants your soul! That’s the difference!
Keep off from a Jezebel, avoid any personal relationships with anyone that has a Jezebel spirit at all costs. If it’s a family member, sort it out with God.
I have covered more on this spirit in my book below!
