The Jezebel Spirit
Jezebel: The End Time Queen of Heaven Demoness
No study of demons is complete without a thorough examination of Jezebel. This demoness, who is mentioned more than any other in the New Testament, controls modern society. Indeed, I have never met a living soul who was not under her influence at some time of their life, including believers.
As a Bible-believing Christian you are bound to have heard Jezebel mentioned at some time, and usually in connection with feminism and the attempt by women to dominate men. And this is most definitely one of her chief hallmarks for one of her rôles is to overturn male headship (especially in marriage) and to establish matriarchy. Religions that specifically promote her (though mostly using different names) such as Wicca extoll the 'goddess', 'Maia' and so on, and present her as a benevolent mother earth-spirit and as the 'original' deity that pre-existed the biblical God. But Jezebel is far more than an anti-patriarchal demon as we shall see. The entire spirit of this current depraved 'age' is under her invisible government.
Jezebel (in the Hebrew, Izevel) is one of the most carefully concealed demonic powers there is, and one of Satan's Ace cards. She cannot be discerned except by the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) because her enchantment over the carnal nature or flesh is total. She cannot be seen until the flesh has been conquered by the Ruach (Spirit).
And that is why the evil world system is moving forwards at such a rapid pace - even Christians interceding as prayer warriors against her are, often without realising it, cooperating with her. Jezebel not only controls the psychic 'atmosphere' in which we all operate whilst awake but controls the dream state of those who have not uprooted the carnal nature too. Millions of Bible-believing Christians are having dreams whilst they are asleep, and 'spiritual impressions' and 'inspiration' while they are awake, which they believe is the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) but which, in fact, is demonic ... the power of Jezebel. It is for this reason that so many believers will be swept away by the end-time delusion and fall for the deceptions of the end-time Antichrist when he publicly manifests himself ... until he reveals his true colours and they can see the grizzly evidence of his satanic origin for themselves. By that time, however, it will be too late - they will already have received the Mark of the Beast (Revelation 19:20-21(verse 20) And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
(verse 21) And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which [sword] proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.Revelation 19 verses 20-21). It should be obvious, then - if what I am saying is true (which I of course firmly maintain that it is) - that exposing the spirit of Jezebel is a major priority for deliverance ministers.
The Biblical Jezebels
Historically, as most Bible students know, there were two Jezebels. The first one was the pagan queen of apostate Israelite King Ahab who supported and promoted idolatry in the Kingdom and who came dangerously close to eliminating the true worship of Yahweh (1 Kings 16:30-33(verse 30) And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that [were] before him.
(verse 31) And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him.
(verse 32) And he reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria.
(verse 33) And Ahab made a grove; and Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel that were before him.1 Kings 16 verses 30-33; 1 Kings 18:4For it was [so], when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the LORD, that Obadiah took an hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.)1 Kings 18 verse 4; 1 Kings 22:2And it came to pass in the third year, that Jehoshaphat the king of Judah came down to the king of Israel.1 Kings 22 verse 2; 2 Kings 9:22And it came to pass, when Joram saw Jehu, that he said, [Is it] peace, Jehu? And he answered, What peace, so long as the whoredoms of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts [are so] many?2 Kings 9 verse 22). The queen demoness who ruled Queen Jezebel back then is now accomplishing on a global scale what she accomplished two and a half millennia ago in the northern Kingdom of Israel. If you want to know what the spiritual condition of our age is, just go back and read the accounts of this wicked queen. There were then, as there are now, only a handful of true worshippers of Yahweh. The vast bulk of the population were either raw pagans or had compromised true worship with the worship of idols - they were religious syncretists. They would have used the Name of God (Yahweh), participated in the rituals of the Mosaic Law (to varying degrees), but at the same time included the worship of pagan deities alongside Yahweh. They would, in short, have imitated the foolish ways of 'wise' King Solomon who, by gradual steps under the influence of foreign pagan wives which Torah had forbidden him to marry because of this very danger, became more and more of a pagan (1 Kings 11:1-11). How could it have happened to so blessed and wise a king, who built the most magificient temple ever which Yahweh graced with such power as has never been seen since? Though the later Queen Jezebel will give us some more concrete information about the demoness of the same name, we will begin with Solomon because his life shows us the gradual way in which most foolish people slip into apostacy.
Israel was, and is, and is always supposed to be, a 'holy', 'set apart' or 'separate' nation (Exodus 19:5-6(verse 5) Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth [is] mine:
(verse 6) And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These [are] the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.Exodus 19 verses 5-6; 1 Peter 2:9But ye [are] a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.1 Peter 2 verse 9). When the Bible admonishes us to be holy, it means to be separated and distinct from the surrounding pagan culture. Our homes are supposed to be miniature temples where no unclean thing can enter. These temples are, of course, more than our homes - they are our very bodies, which we are told are the "temple of the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit)" (1 Corinthians 6:19What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost [which is] in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?1 Corinthians 6 verse 19).
Solomon's fall occurred, as we know, through women. The spirit of Jezebel is a female demon or demoness The author of this article is giving their 'opinion' or 'belief' here about demon gender, but demonic 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 demonic 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. (the parallel male spirit of Ahab we shall speak of another time). In saying this, I am not singling out the women for 'special blame' for sin - sin is endemic in both genders, though each gender does tend to sin and get demonised in slightly different ways. Adam and Eve were both as guilty of sin as each other, as are our modern men and women. And the spirit of Jezebel (like the spirit of Ahab) oppresses and possesses both men and women alike. For political reasons (in other words, trusting in politics more than Yahweh), Solomon married foreign wives so that he would have peace on his frontiers and gain trade advantages. And this is how sin and demonisation always start - we make an unequal peace with our enemies either because we fear them or because we want to control them. Remember Jacob, and how he tried to bribe Esau with gifts when he returned home to Canaan, so that his cheated brother would not kill him? We likewise send presents to our flesh nature to appease it (Genesis 33). The only godly fear, however, is of Yahweh (Psalms 111:10The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do [his commandments]: his praise endureth for ever.Psalms 111 verse 10; Proverbs 1:7The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge: [but] fools despise wisdom and instruction.Proverbs 1 verse 7; Micah 6:9The LORD'S voice crieth unto the city, and [the man of] wisdom shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.Micah 6 verse 9; Isaiah 11:2-3(verse 2) And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
(verse 3) And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD: and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears:Isaiah 11 verses 2-3), and the only way to control your enemies is by allowing Yahweh to control you. Any other method will open the door to sin and demonic influence in your life. Our part is simply to fear Yahweh (and no one else) and to yield complete control of our lives to Yahweh through His Son Yah'shua (Jesus). It sounds so simple, doesn't it? But the truth is, in order to do this, you must wage relentless war against the flesh until you have overcome it. In short, you must become an overcomer.
Solomon's great weakness was women. Though Torah permitted him to have several wives, it was clearly stated that they must be virgins, of the covenant, and not in large numbers (Leviticus 21:14A widow, or a divorced woman, or profane, [or] an harlot, these shall he not take: but he shall take a virgin of his own people to wife.Leviticus 21 verse 14;
Deuteronomy 17:14-17(verse 14) When thou art come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that [are] about me;
(verse 15) Thou shalt in any wise set [him] king over thee, whom the LORD thy God shall choose: [one] from among thy brethren shalt thou set king over thee: thou mayest not set a stranger over thee, which [is] not thy brother.
(verse 16) But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.
(verse 17) Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, that his heart turn not away: neither shall he greatly multiply to himself silver and gold.Deuteronomy 17 verses 14-17). Power turned Solomon's head. He realised that with his wealth and power, he could have all the women he wanted. And so he helped himself, just as the fallen Watcher Angels did in the days of Noah, coming to earth and helping themselves to the daughters of men with whom they destyoyed the gene pool by internarrying with them, and created a race of giants or nephilim, provoking Yahweh to destroy the entire corrupted world by water (Genesis 6:4There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown.Genesis 6 verse 4; Numbers 13:33And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, [which come] of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.Numbers 13 verse 33). And you will remember, that the Saviour said that when He returned, the earth would be exactly as it was in the days of Noah (Matthew 24:37But as the days of Noe [were], so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.Matthew 24 verse 37; Luke 17:26And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.Luke 17 verse 26; 1 Peter 3:20Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.1 Peter 3 verse 20).
