The Jezebel Spirit
Jezebel vs. Jehu

To continue the post on Jezebel, I have done some research, since I am in a battle against this powerful spirit and it is apparent that Jezebel will be wreaking havoc in peoples lives in these last days. [She] is in comparison, Satan’s bride. The female demon The author of this article is giving their 'opinion' or 'belief' here about demon gender, but spirits have no gender. The jezebel spirit is NOT a 'he' or 'she.' It is a 'spirit' which can dwell in both men and women. Therefore when speaking about this evil spirit it is referred to sometimes as a 'it" or 'he' or 'she,' but it is really an 'it.' All spirits are neither male nor female.
When speaking about the jezebel spirit it has nothing to do at all with a woman's make-up, or dress., however, she can work through a male or female.
The people that are enslaved by Jezebel, rarely know this unless they read the Word of God and start to understand how this demon operates. This demon uses witchcraft to overpower a persons mind and usually tends to use the facade of the church as her cover. The church is a very nice hiding place for Jezebel.
As I stated in my last post, Jezebel made her first appearance in the human form in 1 Kings and appears once again in spirit form, in the book of Revelation. The church of Thyratira in Revelation 2:18And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet [are] like fine brass.Revelation 2 verse 18 is where the angel speaks about the fact that the church is responsible for tolerating her immorality and the influence she has on others. Even in Galatians, Paul speaks about those who have been "bewitched" as he reprimands these "foolish Galatians." (Galatians 3:1O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?Galatians 3 verse 1) The translation of this word is "by witchcraft."
Jezebels traits should be studied and if you are a spirit-filled believer, submitted to God, you will easily discern her operating. She loves to play the queen bee and usually tries to emasculate the men around her, and belittling everyone else.
[She] has her victims doing her dirty work for her. [She] likes to remain hidden and even though she constantly sows seeds of discord and hatred, [she] does not want to be exposed. [She] will lie compulsively and is a psychopath. [Her] conscience has been seared.
[She] does not repent for anything and if [she] even begins to sound like it, that is usually only cursory to maintain control. It’s always a false sense of humility, because [she] is filled with pride.
It’s a sad demise for Jezebel, but usually only by someone like the prophet Jehu, the person operating under this spirit can be free. The male/female that the spirit Jezebel is operating through, must first acknowledge that they are indeed being influence by this demon, and then they must repent. This is the beginning of their deliverance, however, the person must recognize that this spirit can come back if they are not filled by the Holy Spirit. The Lord tells us that the "house must be swept clean and filled or the spirits will return."
There is quite a bit of resource information on this spirit and on Ahab and in these days it is quite important for people to know their enemy!
The Lord revealed to me something that had just happened in my life and it was the classic Jezebel move. A man of God told me that this was the Lord letting me know where the enemy was at. However, after I discovered this episode lined up with scripture to a tee, the Lord reminded me that He was not just letting me know "where" the enemy was at, but "Who" the enemy is. This is very important when we are doing warfare and praying for those to be released from the deception of the enemy in their own lives. Most people under her power, or any demons, for that matter, rarely realize that they are under it’s control.
...and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will. 2 Timothy 2:26 (NIV)And [that] they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.2 Timothy 2 (KJV) verse 26
This is why we stand in the gap and do battle on their behalf.
I noticed something of interest as well in the last book of the Old Testament. The final prophecy before the return of the Lord.
I noticed that Elijah is the one that confronted Ahab and Jezebel in 1 Kings and spoke the word of the Lord to put an end to their rein of terror. Here we see Elijah appearing once again, right before the return of the Lord and who is also working her charms? That's right, in the last days before the return of the Lord, there [she] is in Revelation, Jezebel. And we know from the past that Jezebel, hated the prophets of God. [She] had them killed because she worshipped Baal.
"See, I will send the prophet Elijah to you before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes. He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents; or else I will come and strike the land with total destruction." Malachi 4:5-6 (NIV)(verse 5) Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.
(verse 6) And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.Malachi 4 (KJV) verses 5-6
Even though she is hiding in the church, [she] isn't hidden to those walking in the spirit, with true discernment. [She] is serving herself and she is surrounding herself with puppets. [Her] life has not been consecrated to the Lord, she only worships Him with her lips to proliferate her plans of deception.
[She] hated Elijah and she will not tolerate the prophets trying to disrupt [her] plans for her victims. [She] needs to remove them from her sphere of influence so that she will not be exposed. True hatred spews from this spirits mouth toward the followers of Christ who choose to live according to His words. [She] falsely accuses them to make them appear the opposite of the life they choose to walk in and this spirit "glory's in her shame." Making it appear to even the most intelligent victim, that she is very noble in her acts of corruption.
Now in the end, as I stated, it will be Jehu that comes and destroys this work. He knew his mission and would not allow himself to be captivated by this witchcraft. "She painted her eyes, arranged her hair and looked out the window" (2 Kings 9:30And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard [of it]; and she painted her face, and tired her head, and looked out at a window.2 Kings 9 verse 30). ([She] uses this seduction as part of [her] power, it is sensual and carnal.) As Jehu entered the gate she asked, "Have you come in peace, Zimri, you murderer of your master?" (2 Kings 9:31And as Jehu entered in at the gate, she said, [Had] Zimri peace, who slew his master?2 Kings 9 verse 31)
Without even being caught up in her accusations or any conversation whatsoever, Jehu called out, "Who is on my side? Who?" Two or three eunichs (she surrounded herself with men that were emasculate, a picture of what type of spirit this is), looked down at him (2 Kings 9:32And he lifted up his face to the window, and said, Who [is] on my side? who? And there looked out to him two [or] three eunuchs.2 Kings 9 verse 32). "Throw her down! Jehu said" (2 Kings 9:33And he said, Throw her down. So they threw her down: and [some] of her blood was sprinkled on the wall, and on the horses: and he trode her under foot.2 Kings 9 verse 33).
We know the rest, Jehu had her thrown from her palace wall. [She] is haughty and thought that she could overpower everyone, but "greater is He that is in me, than the one who is in the world" (1 John 4:4Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.1 John 4 verse 4). Jehu was a mighty man of God.
This is the proverb that speaks of all of the characteristics of a Jezebel spirit, "There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to Him (Proverbs 6:16-19(verse 16) These six [things] doth the LORD hate: yea, seven [are] an abomination unto him:
(verse 17) A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
(verse 18) An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
(verse 19) A false witness [that] speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.Proverbs 6 verses 16-19):
- haughty eyes
- a lying tongue
- hands that shed innocent blood
- a heart that devises wicked schemes
- feet that are quick to rush into evil
- a false witness that pours out lies
- and Seven, remember is detestable to Him; a man who stirs up dissension among his brothers."
