The JEZEBEL Spirit

Post by Cholette on Wed Dec 29, 2010 7:11 am

I will explain more about this later, but there was a "jezebel" spirit that had been harrassing me over the years. No matter where i went, that spirit seemed to follow me through other people.

I just started this new job over a month ago and one of the girls, who was the sweetest girl in the office, all of a sudden, flipped on me and her attitude just changed. I didn't get it, but God pointed it out to me. I had always thought that Jezebel was ONLY in church, but it's more than that (this will require more study for me).

Anyway, God showed it to me in prayer and on my way to work yesterday I went off in the spirit against it. I also asked God to give me an opportunity to encourage her. He did that PLUS yesterday was the best day ever with this girl. She was talking to me, instead of growling at me or being rude. I had an opportunity to be one on one with her in the kitchen and I told her that I have discerned her stress and that everything is going to be okay. She just looked at me in shock and then I rubbed her back. I heard the Lord say "its the anointing that breaks the yoke". It was after THAT moment where everything turned around.

You gotta love how God does things. It's been a long 6 weeks on this job...BUT GOD!!!!

Amen, thanks for sharing this, Cholette! It's a great reminder of the spiritual warfare that we encounter at work that we sometimes overlook. When we remember who we're dealing with, we can stand in our spiritual authority, take back our place in the work setting and continue our spiritual and natural assignment in that space. :hallelujah:

Amen, amen, Cholette-chica, it's true! The enemy is a liar. He just uses that spirit to cause conflict and division between people -the things we see-, when he knows good and well, that the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, mind, attitude, but of the spirit of Almighty God, which pulls down the thick walled defenses and deep entrenchments that satan has made in peoples' lives.

I know this post is kind of long, but I feel led to share about my experience with the Jezebel spirit:

Prophets have at least one (usually several) showdown(s) with Jezebel or they aren't really prophets, in my experience. People in my life who have this Jezebel spirit (I've fought off probably at least 50 of these) operating through them:

are usually pretty intelligent
write notes (sounds weird, I know see 1 Kings 21:8)
tend to be control freaks
pride themselves on getting things done, no matter what the price (I Kings 21: 5-16)
use intimidation, are masters at subtle intimidation
use the silent treatment
are good at getting other people involved in the fray (1 Kings 21:25)
like embarassing their victims publicly
are very intimidated by people who can expose them [anyone with prophetic or discernment giftings]
seem to get along with everyone but prophets--like to make you feel like you're crazy, use invalidation
like stripping people of their power (I don't think it was an accident that eunuchs threw Jezebel out the window in the Bible)
aren't necessarily women
use flattery in masterful ways

Again, this has been my experience and what I've learned from reading the Bible. Prayer is absolutely the best defense. I've seen this spirit completely muzzled by prayer.

The people who have this spirit operating through them are hurting people. Deep down I think they feel defenseless so they use control to cover their fear. I feel especially sorry for the spouses of these people. If you look at 1 Kings 21:27-29 where Ahab humbled himself and God had mercy on him, I think it had to do with God knowing all the heartache Ahab had had having Jezebel for a wife.

One last thing I've learned about dealing with this spirit is that it likes to bite you after you think you've defeated it. I thought I was completely reconciled with a person who had this spirit and she turned around and really, really hurt me, so beware.

Thank you so much for this Deborah. Your list describes EVERY single Jezebel that has been in my life, over the years...especially my coworker. I do know that she is a sad young girl who has been given "some" power in the office and has run with it, so to speak.

Your last statement is EXACTLY what the Lord told me. He said that even though things are going well, don't stop praying...stay on the offense. I've been doing this and I will continue to do it, in this situation, and those situations that will TRY to come my way in the future.

I would like to say something tha I think may help.

Jezebelic spirit is actually rooted in insecurities and fears esp. fear of man. This spirit tends to control anyone when it is threatened. Also, this spirit brings bondage and injects fears if not detected or discerned through the eyes of the HS. The impact of its work depends on the degree as we allow it to manipulate us. In church as a whole, it masks as religious spirit, which is a counterfeit power of the HS.

This spirit is really dangerous!!!!!

Blessings!

Hinds, there are several manifestations of this kind of spirit, and it takes the working of the Holy Spirit to unmask this destructive spirit. From the day that I have encountered this spirit in my life, I learned that each one of us has this kind of spirit to some degree and manifestation. To say that I dont have this kind of spirit would be an indication that I do have, as far as my experience in concerned. This kind of spirit is so subtle and it is hard to detect, nobody can be delivered with this without the genuine working of the HS. I could even say that sometimes I am deceived and fooled with this spirit.

rofl you 2!!!

Thank you Owen!!
I do know how subtle it is. Looking back I can see how God has been bringing it to light in my life. Subconscious ulterior motives are the WORST!!! I'm always thinking about my motives now and so often I notice that they aren't quite innocent. Even when asking God for help I catch myself trying to manipulate Him. It makes me angry because I don't want to do that but it's so sneaky. When I do realize that I'm praying manipulative prayers I always apologize but because I'm so frustrated with whatever I'm praying about it happens again with a different manipulative prayer tactic. I know that comes from not having faith. I have trust issues in general.
That's only one thing I've been dealing with lately!

D, in your experience, how can you tell who is free of that spirit and in whom it is part of their personality?

The good thing is, you are aware of it, that is a sign that the HS is working. I really understand how it feels, it is like a combination of self pity, a bit of condemnation but combined with a strong sense of conviction. I did struglle during those times, and you are right one of the reason is lack of trust and faith in him, this is why we do what we think is right according to how we see things.

During those times, God is always reminding me that I have to carry my cross everyday, means I have to die daily, because if not, the big ´I´will usurp the throne of God, and become vulnerable of this destructive spirit. So I learned if we are caught off guard spiritually, this spirit will take the control, even so, Im still learning it until right now.

Hi Deborah, this is a serious question: what type of prayer do you pray to muzzle this spirit? And when do you do this? Do you need prayer covering from others when facing this type of spirit?
I'm dealing with some people that are operating in this spirit and I'm finding it increasingly hard. God has kept me from bonding with most of them, which at the time I didn't know but have come to see that as His protection. I'm having an increasing amount of dreams where I'm having confrontations with this type of spirit. It's pretty full on. My natural inclination has been(and still is) to avoid anyone with this spirit as much as I can, but somehow God keeps bringing this issue to my attention. I obviously can't run from it and I think confrontation is imminent some time in the (near?)future. So, back to my original questions: how/when to pray? And not less important, how to counteract/withstand the fear/manipulation/intimidation that this spirit hurls around? All I can find in the Bible is that which is mentioned in 1 Kings and Rev.2:20-23 which shows the severity.
