Of Jezebel also has the Lord spoken, saying, ‘The dogs will eat Jezebel in the district of Jezreel.1 Kings 21:23
The spirit of Jezebel uses seduction and soul ties to isolate, manipulate, and control. Jezebel’s whoredom include fornication, adultery, and sexual sins of all kinds. They are spirits of the unfaithful, they break vows, they abandon you when you are no longer of any use to them, and they will sell you out with their dangerous network of messengers.
They entice gullible men. By using sympathy and promises of loyalty, they rob them of what they have left and leave them naked and dry in their death. People fooled by Jezebels in the church, are usually plain fellows possessing shaky foundations in their faith. These men are not people who lack in church attendance or those who did not declare their allegiance with Christ often enough. But they are those whose soul is abandoned by the Holy Spirit because of their persistent iniquities, and due to this, they are desperately short of God’s protection against things that harm them and are easily deceived.
Network Of Spirits
The spirit of Jezebel has friends. The spirit of Jezebel doesn’t work alone; she has a network. The Jezebel spirit is the most wicked of spirits. Historically, the rise and fall of spiritual power within the Church of Christ have been related to the acknowledgment and opposition toward demonic principalities and powers.
Christians are in spiritual war, whether we want to be or not. There are high-level spiritual assignments against believers and the real church. One of the most powerful, working against the church, is the Jezebel spirit. That spirit works with a network of others spirits to steal, kill and destroy life, marriages, families, and ministries. Success to defeat Jezebel and her influence depends on our ability to see this spirit’s operations. You can’t fight what you can’t see. But you can see.
Spiritual warfare is part of Christianity, and spiritual warfare is never over as long as we are in the flesh. Jesus did not ignore demonic influence, and he didn’t teach his apostles to ignore them either (Matthew 10:1).
The Apostle Paul pulled the natural curtain back to see what goes on in the spiritual realm. He taught the church in Ephesus how to battle unseen spirits, saying, “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand (Ephesians 6:10-13).
Tolerating Jezebel, A Bad Idea
The Jezebel spirit is discussed in both the Old Testament and New Testament. Elijah had contact with Queen Jezebel and the governing church of Thyatira with a person carrying a Jezebel spirit. There are thousands of years between Elijah’s face-off and the Thyatira testimony. THIS GIVES EVIDENCE THAT THE JEZEBEL SPIRIT DID NOT DIE WITH A WICKED QUEEN.
The church in Thyatira was commanded not to suffer the spirit of Jezebel. 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. (Revelation 2:20)
“Suffer that woman Jezebel” means to allow, to permit, and to let. To allow one to do as he wishes, not to restrain, and to let alone. To give up, to let go, and to leave.
This means the church knows the Jezebel spirit is working through a particular person, but refuse to do anything about it. One thing for sure, to ignore the Jezebel spirit is ministerial suicide. The church cannot beat this devil by leaving it alone. Either ignore it and suffer the consequences, or confront it and be victorious.
A Strong Man Spirit
The Jezebel spirit is a “strong man spirit”. Strongman spirits watch for gatekeepers. Gatekeepers control the access to something whether it’s wealth, power or influence. A strong man spirit uses other weaker spirits to advance its ambition of dominion.
Jesus mentioned strong man spirits, saying, “No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house” (Mark 3:27). It’s the collective of evil spirits and Jezebel’s team that makes the Jezebel spirit a strong man spirit. The network consists of many different wicked spirits including whoredom spirits, divination spirits, and witchcraft spirits.
Jezebel And Spirit Of Whoredom
The whoredom spirit is part of Jezebel’s network of evil spirits. The great sins of Jezebel include whoredom. Jehu mentions the whoredom and witchcraft of Jezebel. “Now it happened, when Joram saw Jehu, that he said, “Is it peace, Jehu?” So he answered, “What peace, as long as the harlotries of your mother Jezebel and her witchcraft are so many?” (2 Kings 9:22).
Jezebel’s whoredom includes adultery, fornication, prostitution, debasement and sexual sins of all sorts. Whoredom also refers to a betrayal of faithfulness, breaking of vows, and prostitution of self and others for advancement.
The whoredom spirit will sell itself and sell you out. As you can read, the Jezebel spirit is not faithful in relationships, word, or deed. Take the bait and fall in love with an unfaithful Jezebel spirit, and you will get your heart ripped out. Scripture declares, “For a harlot is a deep pit, and a seductress is a narrow well. She also lies in wait as for a victim, and increases the unfaithful among men. (Proverbs 23:27-28).
Jezebel is the strange woman. Give this spirit a place in your life, and chaos and destruction will follow. The bottom line is to avoid personal relationships with those having a Jezebel spirit at all price. It’s one thing when family members carry a Jezebel spirit, but it’s another to pursue a relationship with someone that has that spirit.
As already said, the Jezebel spirit networks with the spirit of whoredom. It will profane, defile, pollute, and desecrate relationships and organizations at every level. A prostitute in the conventional sense of the word is one that sells their body for financial gain.
Jezebel will prostitute herself. It is promiscuous and unrestrained when it comes to advancing her mad lust for power, control, position, wealth, influence, and prestige. Jezebel is the wicked queen of all queens.
A loyal person is truehearted and steadfast in allegiance, in other words faithful. Jezebel has no faithful qualities. She is not looking for friendship; she is looking for control. Their interest in you is limited to what you can do for them. Once something or someone better comes along they will shell you until you become useful again, if you ever do.
The whoredom spirit is a worldly spirit. It is well versed in the things of this world like status, titles, and position. It understands what it takes to gain power within the Babylonian system, and within a church. This is an earthly, carnal, and sensuous spirit that’s not afraid to use immorality to create the most dangerous of soul ties. Soul ties are those strings that the Jezebel spirit uses to tie you to their charm. They can be physical, emotional, or spiritual.
Rebellion, Witchcraft, And Stubbornness
The Jezebel spirit conceives through whoredom and bears bastard children. A bastard child is a fatherless child. The children of Jezebel are full of rebellion. “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the Lord, He also has rejected you from being king.” (1 Samuel 15:23). Jezebel will not allow spiritual fathers to parent what she considers her children.
When Jezebel is allowed unfettered freedom, her sins lead to a land full of wickedness. Scripture says, “Do not prostitute your daughter, to cause her to be a harlot, lest the land fall into harlotry, and the land become full of wickedness (Leviticus 19:29). Spirits reproduce themselves. Whoredom produces whoredom.
Jezebel is a traitor. She will betray, two-time and double-cross you. She says one thing and does another. There are no loyalties from this worldly double-dealing wicked spirit that seeks to take you out of the plan of God for your life.
Seduce, Capture, And Control
Many understand the Jezebel spirit will use immorality and sensuality to seduce, capture, and control. Jezebel cannot control you without first seducing you. Seduction is a “spiritual force” released by the whoredom spirit. The sensual enticements come in many ways, especially through flattery. She may say things like, “Nobody understands you as I do.” Or she may flirt and get all touchy-feely. This spirit knows how to “pull on your soul.”
If need be, she will swap sex for favors. Sex is a potent weapon used to capture the unsuspecting, the sinner, and even the mighty. To the Jezebel spirit, sex is a tool and another weapon in her arsenal. Sex is only the means to an end. Jezebel is the strange woman that uses flattery to entice her victims. Scripture gives ample warning. “To keep you from the evil woman, from the flattering tongue of a seductress. Do not lust after her beauty in your heart, nor let her allure you with her eyelids. For by means of a harlot a man is reduced to a crust of bread; and an adulteress will prey upon his precious life.” (Proverbs 6:24-26)
Jezebel The Hunting Spirit
The spirit of whoredom is a hunting spirit and always on the prowl. Beware of the influence of the Jezebel’s traps. Whoredom spirits will make the homely look attractive. Spiritual seduction from a whoredom spirit has nothing to do with natural beauty. Jezebel is the seducing goddess of war.
When the Jezebel spirit releases her network of seducing spirits, they look for something in you to latch onto. Jesus said, “I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me”(John 14:30). Some may play games with God for a season, but wicked spirits don’t play games, they come to steal, kill and destroy. Close all doors to Jezebel’s weapons and beware of the spirit of whoredom.
