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 among people 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. They use words from their mouth to call evil on someone, a practice known spiritually as witchcraft! They recruit other people of similar minds to help with their evil agenda!
The unclean spirit makes them very deceitful, sometimes very religious, critical of others, bullies and architects of character assassination. Faithfulness to this spirit is a lip-service. Persons with this spirit specialise in betrayal and backstabbing! They will never say anything good about someone else especially if they think that it will build the person’s image! They will also do it if they are being out-shined, perceive the other person as a threat to their position of influence or can expose their dark side. A Jezebel will only say something nice about someone as a tactical approach to deceive the listener.
A Jezebel-spirit-driven person, does not have a remorseful heart. The word sorry is not in their vocabulary.
Although many people believe that this spirit operates mostly through a specific gender, it is genderless. Men also operate under this spirit with the same out-of-control bouts of anger!
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 its 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 person with this spirit, isn’t always religious but when they are, it is subtle, mixed with antichrist practices. Jezebel is one of the most deceitful antichrist spirits out there.
In general, this spirit sets camp in homes, organized groups, companies and the political arena. It takes people within its 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!
A person with a Jezebel spirit is showy in everything, wants to portray perfection when it is 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).
A Jezebel is not a prostitute as depicted by some theological scholars, but can be a whore. Prostitutes want money for their services, a whore is a person driven by this spirit to gain power over your life using anything, including seduction! Where this spirit is, the spirit of witchcraft is not far behind!
