Hey Owen, I'm sorry I didn't reply. I read your reply before but wasn't able to answer then.

That's a relief to know!
Yeah, that describes it... I'm glad I'm not the only one that's going/gone through that.

What are some other reasons?

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.

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.

This is one of my experiences:

As to HOW to pray, I can't give the exact words but just confront the spirit and tell it that it will NOT intimidate you. WHEN to pray? Prayer is absolutely essential before being around this spirit (and SOS prayers work too if you're caught unprepared). If you look at how Elijah responded to Jezebel in the Bible, you'll see he was intimidated by that spirit.

I looked someone in the eye once who was trying to manipulate me and I said simply, with authority, "NOW is NOT the time." That Jezebel spirit backed off. I hope this helps.

John Bevere has a good Bible study on initimidation; I would HIGHLY recommend it to you if you're serious about stopping this spirit in its tracks in your life. I hope this helps.

Thanks so much Deborah. I looked at buying that resource a while back but didn't..so thanks for reminding me. Intimidation is exactly what's been holding me back, sos prayers I've done many of those,and God has given me peace and His protection at those times but i've not confronted this spirit..that's the problem. It's like I'm going around the same mountain again and again. Please pray for me to grow in courage and for Him to help me stand in the authority He's given me.

You'll find this spirit is like a bully--when it sees you mean business it WILL back down. I'm glad I could be used by the Lord to bring a little insight.

Oh! And one last thing: This really helped me, Psalms 18: 17-19.

He delivered me from my strong enemy, from those who hated me, for they were too strong for me.
They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the Lord was my support.
He also brought me out into a broad place; He delivered me because He delighted in me.

Wow...I am learning a lot about the Jezebel spirit...I appreciat this collective lesson. I don't have many people that are in my life with this spirit, but have wondered about a woman who I just sensed in the spirit that something was wrong...she said she loved God and she always seemed passionate about running here or running there for a concert or to hear a Christian speaker, but I always got a check in the spirit every time she invited me...and I wondered if she had a Jezebel spirit, because she pressured me in ways that seemed fearful to my spirit....totally out of peace. But I thought wow, this lady knows so much...could it be possible that she is just an immature Christian, knowing the ways and the words of God but not applying them? what do you think?

Does this Jezebel spirit appear as an immature Christian,walking the walk but not talking the talk?

I've seen it in non Christians, but usually I've found this spirit in people who are very Christian-looking on the outside--diligent church workers, if you know what I mean. Immaturity does show up in Jezebels during crisis--crisis, afterall, has a way of showing our fruits or lack thereof.

I would hesitate to say your acquaintance has this Jezebel spirit--some people are just pushy because that's their personality or that's how they were raised--but it's possible.

Well, I didnt really know what it was, because in the experience this church lady always called to talk about the latest Christian author and prophet and always going here and there and reading all the latest books. I mostly depend on all my food directly from God, so I didnt really share her enthusiasm for the manymany people that she talked about. But she seemed to say the right things, yet in the spirit I wondered if she was a witch mascarading as a Christian because someing wasnt right. I knew it for sure, when after knowing her casually for a few years, one time she shared that her son was living with a girl and the girl got pregnant.
The woman was enraged and said the girl had "trapped her son" and now she and her husband had advised the son to shake the dust off their feet and have nothing to do with the baby, basically to abandon it as the girl was strange and it was all a plot from the enemy.
I told her straight up, that to abandon the child, was like the Bible says, the man who will not take care of his family is worse than an infidel. I never heard from her again.

Not to be confused. I knew it for sure that something was "not right" with her spirit...I still do not know if she has witchcraft connections, but then rebellion is a form of witchcraft as well.

I'm revisiting this post because I recently saw a lady preacher called a Jezebel on Facebook just because she was a LADY preacher. The person cited that scripture about how women are to remain silent in the church. Women who have anointing from God to preach teach and prophesy are NOT Jezebels just because they're female!!!!!!

Amen! "Jezebel" is a name people will attach to anyone now a days. I really believe its a tactic of the enemy to water it down so people won't be aware of it any longer. We have to stay on the wall of prayer.

I know I began this post two years ago and it was before I was ordained as a prophet. Now that I am, it's amazing the amount of manipulation that takes place around me. I'm not saying they are Jezebels, but the are Jezebel-esque. There is a young girl who also has a strong prophetic gift who is ALWAYS in my face. She always has a word for me and she can be quite annoying. Most people are afraid to give me words and they go to my pastor to relay the word to him, but not her. She seems to be so overly confident and it appears she is trying to build herself up in her own eyes by doing that. My Pastor has had to call her on giving "parking lot" prophecies...over and over again. She feels as if she has words or people so she gives them no matter what...that is rebellion.

She can be a sweet and loving girl, but deals with rejection and wants to be loved and accepted. I do accept her, but I have to also use discernment and protect myself. I feel that the moment my guard is down, the bite takes place. bandaid

Exactly Dee! I'm also trying to get my flesh in check as well because I really shouldn't be that irked with her...but I am. My pastor told me to connect with her so she can learn. He said that she definately has a gift inside of her, but it needs to be tempered. My responsibility is to keep watch on the prophetic side of things and because we are a "prophetic" church...EVERYBODY wants to prophesy. He allows it during our church prayers, but we have to get a handle on those who are pullling people over to the side and giving them some harsh and specific information that IS NOT of God. I didn't sign up for this, did I? lol

Your account of that girl reminds me of the girl in Acts 16:16-18 who followed Paul and Silas around for many days saying, "These men are the servants of the Most High God, who proclaim to us the way of salvation." This was a true statement but after many days it says Paul was "greatly annoyed" and rebuked the spirit that was on her and she was delivered. The. Scripture said hers was a spirit of divination and apparently she was pretty accurate in her "prophecy" because she made her masters a lot of money.

Cholette. do you think something like this could be operating in the girl you mentioned or is she just really really immature?

Re: The JEZEBEL Spirit

Post by Jazzy on Sun Nov 18, 2012 12:03 pm

Hi all,

I'm glad I came upon this post. I wonder if I am having a bout with this Jezebel spirit. Please read as follows and share thoughts.

One of my friends was telling me about her ex-roommate who was verablly abusive and made her feel oppressed and inferior. When asked if she did anything about it, when defending herself, ex-roomie basically shut her back down. I thought that was just horrible as I could not put up with that from anyone, much less a roommate. I even started to get slightly angry because my friend is genuinely nice and warm-hearted girl, but I always know there are two sides to a story so I was not quick to jump on her bandwagon.

It was a shocker for me because I know her ex-roomie and never noticed these actions from the girl. So although my friend was telling me all these bad things ex-roomie did, I knew not to have a biased opinion because I haven't seen it for myself. Do you know what I mean?

The thing that confused me is that my friend still communicates with her ex-roomie, like shopping and catching lunch. I thought hey, maybe they're better off just as friends and not living living together. Because otherwise, why would you tell me about how horrible a person treats you then hang out with them, you know?

Because I thought everyone was cordial, I invited my friend, the ex-roomie, and another girl to a basketball game (the other girl was actually the new roomie when my friend moved out. But the new girl moved out for other issues). My friend and the new girl (they both know each other by the way) talked to each other mostly. I felt bad for ex-roomie because she just sat there. So I spoke to make conversation. My friend and new girl left early because new girl was tired. New girl and I texted later that night, and apparently she and ex-roomie weren't getting along. I apologized because I had no idea since a week or two ago everyone seemed okay. She said she and ex-roomie are civil only when ex-roomie needs a favor.

Does this sound like the ex-roomie has Jezebel spirit? Initially I felt bad for ex-roomie because my friend says all these things that I don't see. I felt like giving her a chance, but after reading these posts I wonder if I should keep my distance.

This convo was a while ago... but just wondering, what if the person isn't aware they have that spirit? and say, I see this identifying things in a friend, what are you supposed to do?

Hi Jazzy... It could be that the roommate is operating in that spirit, but its hard to say. I'm very careful in saying that a person has a Jezebel spirit unless God points it out to me. Some people are just mean and don't know how to treat people. The roommate could be jealous and just treats your friend unkindly. Pray over the situation and ask God to reveal what that is and go from there.

Gracee...most people who operate in this spirit don't realize they do. It goes undetected by those around it and those who operate in it. God can tell you how to deal with it. In my case, it was me laying my hand on her unassumingly for God to break that thing off of her. It just depends...allow God to give you His strategies on how to handle that...He will! A former Pastor's wife operated in the spirit of Jezebel and everyone called her powerful and a Strong leader. It was God that showed me little things behind the scenes that she did that put her in control of the church instead of her husband. She shot his ideas down behind the scenes and eventually did that in front of people. So sometimes women in power can have that Spirit and everyone thinks she's strong. Like I said, it has to be discerned. Not all strong women leaders have the spirit of Jezebel.

Hope this helps.
