If you've read the teachings on Religious Spirits & Leviathans you've gotten the foundation of how Pride and control have kept 'The Church' from becoming the powerful army that GOD has called them to become. Now we'll examine the nastiest spirit that got it's biggest hold in American government, social practices, families AND in the church.

This Spirit is known as JEZEBEL and she can have no power unless there is a AHAB spirit in a position of authority to BOW down to her demands. AHAB can be represented by easily manipulated husbands, politicians, deacon boards or Pastors.

For the purpose of this teaching, I will refer to 'Jezebel' as 'she' since this is the PRIMARY place we see it operate. In truth, the Bible clearly teaches us that angels as well as demons do not have a 'sex.' They are neither male nor female.

This teaching is NOT an attack on women. In fact, my teachings stress the fact that I support and work with many women in ministry. This includes women Pastors. As long as they are 'under authority' and accountable to male church leadership then it is biblical and I have 'no problem' with them. We are ALL to be accountable to someone. The ones who SCARE me are the ones who are not under anyone and call themselves prophets/Apostles. Their teachings end up going off in left field somewhere and will bring confusion. I admit they MEAN well and are trying to serve GOD with everything they are...BUT they have opened doors for spirits that mess them up. None of the women I've worked with fit that description since I RUN from those types of women (AND MEN TOO!)

In fact, I've found most women in ministry are MORE OPEN to the truths of the existence of demonic oppression and listen to GOD's voice. Many of the Pastors GOD has sent me too admit they have NEVER heard GOD's voice and just do as they "feel like they should." GOD manages to use them sometimes but mainly they do as they believe they are SUPPOSED to or are 'told to.'

I would rather have work with ten women who can HEAR THE VOICE OF GOD and obey than 200 men who limit GOD to what they are trained in Seminary or as they are commanded by a denomination! Those type of leaders aren't open to teachings on miracles, healings and deliverance.

As you read it you'll see that the Bible tells us that this is the VERY spirit that will be in operation and coming against the church in the end-days. Revelation tells us:

'These things says the Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet like fine brass: "I know your works, love, service, faith, and your patience; and as for your works, the last are more than the first. "Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. "And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. "Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds.' Revelation 2:18-22 (NKJV)Bible quote(verse 18) And 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;

(verse 19) I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last [to be] more than the first.

(verse 20) Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

(verse 21) And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

(verse 22) Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.Revelation 2 (KJV) verses 18-22

GOD tells us that the church in the end times (which is right now) will have works, faith, service and patience... YET they bow to the spirit of JEZEBEL in the church. They will have anointed praise and worship, they'll be feeding the hungry, supporting missionaries and teach FAITH, HOWEVER they bowed to the 'iron will' of JEZEBEL and kept the prophetic from flowing. You read that JEZEBEL DEMANDS to have the 'ultimate authority' by claiming to be a 'prophetess' or be seen as the 'most anointed' in the church. See how she TEACHES to lead people into her LIES and CONTROL and SEDUCES people with her words? BUT those who participate in her IDOLATRIES and HARLOTRY'S will NOT go to Heaven but rather 'into her great tribulation'! Does that bring anyone 'to mind' in your church?

This Spirit Can Manifest Through a Man As Well!

It is usually seen operating through women but men can operate in it as well. Usually a MAN may operate in all the spirits that Jezebel does (such as: defiance, stubbornness, rebellion, idolatry, control, pride, vengeance, lies, division, witchcraft, religious spirits (Pharisee/Saducee), Leviathans, seducing spirits, lust, fantasy, false gifts, etc.) but he does not have the spirits 'HATRED OF MEN,' which is NECESSARY for JEZEBEL to get her hold. This is the difference. I've run into MANY male Pastors who manifest many of those spirits BUT they do NOT have the JEZEBEL spirit.

GOD has shown me some situations where a man does, because of rape/molestation, physical/emotional abuses or other acts in their childhood committed by another man, where they do open the door for 'hatred of men' and other spirits to to enter the doorway. Then this spirit will operate through the man as it does with the females. He will rule his church (and family) with a 'rod of iron' if he is the Pastor or Head Deacon.

Usually the 'hatred of men' is not on a CONSCIOUS level but the victim is DRIVEN by the spirits of 'HATRED OF MEN' along with the spirits 'destruction of priesthood' and 'Defiance of Authority.' In most instances, the women do NOT realize that this is deep within them or that they opened the door for it. Like most Jezebels they just know they want control and have a NEED TO MANIPULATE THOSE WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IN AUTHORITY OVER THEM because NOBODY is going to MANIPULATE AND HURT THEM AGAIN!!!!

In both the men and women, the spirits of fear, hurt, doubt, rejection, fear of man, fear of rejection go DEEP DOWN INSIDE and bury themselves. They don't want the person to be CONSCIOUS of the trauma/pain that opened the doors. Despite the fact the memories may be disassociated or forgotten at the conscious level, they ferment deep within. This pain opens more doors and for more spirits which helps JEZEBEL to build strength. Soon she will move to DRIVE the person to successfully manipulate and control others. To get this strength she needs the assistance of other spirits such as defiance, stubbornness, rebellion, control, pride, vengeance, lies, division, witchcraft, leviathans, seducing spirits, perversion, lust, fantasy, false gifts. As you read the scriptures below you will see she is guilty of using SEXUAL IMMORALITY to obtain her goals.

She uses RELIGIOUS SPIRITS (pharisee/saducee), to keep herself SAFELY HIDDEN within the church. She uses vengeance, and division to destroy anyone that gets in her way. Once the spirit gets entrance it manipulates circumstances to cause the person to open doors to bring in other spirits called: 'destruction of priesthood' and 'Defiance of Authority.' Control over everything around her is her ULTIMATE goal.
