Jezebel is one of the most dangerous spirits you will come into contact. If you are not careful, this spirit can damage or destroy your relationship with others, your marriage, and ministry. With the rise of social media such as Facebook, we see more and more Jezebel spirits building discipleship groups. The risk for you being ministered to by someone that has a Jezebel spirit is increasing.
The danger is not being able to recognize Jezebel’s characteristics and being lured into her circle of disciples. If you don’t understand how dangerous this spirit is, you need to do some study. The Jezebel spirit is a demonic spirit pretending to be concerned with your wellbeing. Don’t get deceived.
The Bible talks about Queen Jezebel in the Old Testament that was married to King Ahab. Remember Queen Jezebel was wicked and murdered many of God’s prophets. In the New Testament, the name Jezebel comes up again. Obviously, this is not the same person in the Old Testament, but a spirit called Jezebel that appears again. We can learn much by studying the characteristics of a Jezebel spirit. Here is the New Testament Scriptural reference.
"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. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works." Revelation 2:20-23)
Notice five short descriptions of the Jezebel spirit above. She calls herself a prophetess, teaches, seduces, lives in rebellion, and has a turbulent life.
God called this person a Jezebel. The Jezebel spirit is a demonic prophetic teaching spirit. She likes to have students sit at her table and eat what she prepares. Many times she will form little clicks (groups) of people she can minister to. Most the time, Jezebel’s teachings are not authorized by local church leaders and are used to build her influence in your life, not Christ’s influence in your life.
The Jezebel spirit is a prophetic divination spirit similar to the damsel that Apostle Paul ran into. (That spirit tried to sneak its way into Apostle Paul’s ministry.) The Jezebel spirit is especially drawn to prophetic circles and comes across very spiritual. There is a big difference between spiritual and Biblical. Jezebel is good at hiding her fear and insecurities. She is moody, has a temper, and often has bouts of depression. She loves being fed with personal information about your life and will use that information against you.
The spirit of Jezebel is a seducing spirit. Seduce means to lure or entice away. She knows how to build controlling soul ties by connecting with your hurts, pains, spiritual needs, and hunger to hear a prophetic word from God. The problem with Jezebel is that this demonic spirit will lead you away from the only one that can help you, Christ. Christ is the author and finisher of your faith. Apart from Him, you can do nothing. (Continued next page below.)
