But I have a few things against you: You permit that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess …Revelation 2:20
Jezebel’s ultimate goal is always control. The Jezebel spirit is always motivated by its own agenda, which it relentlessly pursues.
The Jezebel spirit attacks, dominates or manipulates, especially male authority. Queen Jezebel usurped political authority of the kingdom. This spirit’s ultimate goal is to conquer or neutralize the prophet because a discerning leader is its greatest enemy.
Jezebel causes fear, flight and discouragement. This spirit often causes a spiritual leader to flee from his appointed place by CHARACTER ASSASSINATION and RUINING HIS REPUTATION.
People under Jezebel’s influence are natural leaders, although often covertly. The Jezebel spirit attempt to seek out people of influence to win their ear, gain credibility and win endorsement for their toxic cause.
People under Jezebel’s influence are often insecure and wounded, with pronounced egocentric needs. They are often trying to fill a love deficit, they have deep, unhealed wounds from sources such as rejection, resistance, fear, insecurity, self-preservation and bitterness that spreads its defilement to many.
The Jezebel spirit functions subtlety and deceptively. They use flattery to win you over, they are masters of manipulation by guilt and undermining or discrediting another’s influence. They are extremely jealous of anyone they perceive to be a threat.
Ultimately, people under Jezebel’s influence are proud, independent and rebellious. Rebellion is their sin & their witchcraft and they will attempt to control others through any means.
It takes an “Ahab” to let a Jezebel spirit operate unchallenged. Those under Jezebel’s influence do not operate without someone under an Ahab-like spirit influence enabling them to function.
A Jezebel spirit is always in alignment with a religion. Both Jezebel in the Old Testament and Revelation in the New Testament OPERATED UNDER THE COVER OF RELIGION. Its religious deeds are done for all to see.
The families of people under Jezebel’s influence are often out of order. Those under Jezebel’s influence control their partners and cause their children to take sides, grow up insecure, disrespect their fathers, feel manipulated and become distrustful toward true authority.
