The Jezebel Spirit

Author requests article critique


Beware of immediately swallowing everything you read. I read one woman’s website where she posts some questionable stuff. One prophecy on her site promises a certain senator that a horrible disease will break out on him for wandering away from the Lord. Other messages told of graphic “visions” of unmentionable things spewing out of the mouths of preachers who had committed adultery, because God would publicly expose them. This woman teaches that the spirits of dead relatives can come back and visit you.

Another prophet, an old man, predicted that Cardinal Luistiger would be the next Pope, and the False Prophet. But that didn’t happen, someone else was elected as Pope. And he says that Michael the Archangel and Jesus are one and the same. You know that’s not true. Angels are created beings, and Jesus is the Creator who took on human flesh to walk among us and to redeem us. Despite all his false predictions that failed to come to pass, this prophet warns you you’d better take his word for it and believe that he is who he says he is, or God will punish you.

The Lord gave me this word, to remind me to be careful of which pastures I choose to graze in.

The Jezebel Spirit
I Kings 21:5-16; Luke 17:32; James 3:17; Rev. 2:20-23

Beware of the headstrong, tyrranical female who rules the roost with a rod of iron, teaches sensational doctrines unfounded on My Word, and claims immunity from personal accountability on the basis of being an exalted “prophetess”. Many souls have been hurt by strong religious personalities who mix elements of the occult with their private interpretations of My Word. And women, especially, can fall into the trap of the Jezebel deceiving spirit which masquerades as the Holy Spirit. In her own way she proclaims loudly that she is lord and never to be questioned. Jesus is dethroned in her mind, and hardly ever mentioned...just an angry, vengeful “god” who goes forth at her beck and call to lay curses upon those she doesn’t like.

I, Jesus, the true Head of the Church, have had to minister soothing Oil of the true Spirit of God to My hurting sheep who got taken in by this domineering character who is so brilliant in her own eyes she blocks out the Son in the eyes of her listeners. Many have been wounded by her, assailed by evil spirits emanating from her presence to put those she doesn’t like under yokes of heavy spiritual oppression. She doesn’t hesitate to publicly name and shame those who are brave enough to defect from her cultic prison house and reclaim their own souls. Instead of serving others with tenderhearted meekness and seeking to build bridges in the unity of Christ based upon the Word of God, she rails against her critics and prays curses upon them to maintain her dominance and power over weaker souls.

Jezebel murdered an innocent man who crossed her, to take what he had and show everybody who was boss. She even resorted to using a religious pretext to make her sin appear respectable before the whole community, to gain sympathy for herself and turn people against her victim. The false prophetess who lords it over others with “authority” to call down “divine judgment” on those who question her mystical doctrines is in reality sending out evil spirits to do her dirty work for her. That is being a religious gangster, plain and simple. I don’t deal in terror tactics to rein in My children. I discipline My rebellious kids who don’t repent and strive to go on to true holiness, but I never invested in any woman or man the power or right to terrorize My people to keep them under their thumb. That is witchcraft of the basest sort.

If you should ever feel a horrible uneasiness about any ministry, male or female, and they try to persuade you that you’ve got no right to question what they teach or listen to your own sanctified conscience, sever all ties with such a one and don’t ever look back! Remember Lot’s wife. You only hurt yourself and reopen old wounds by looking back.

Don’t even try to reason away the spiritual oppression you feel from having strayed into Jezebel’s hog pen to eat. And once you come to your senses and escape her clutches, don’t condemn yourself for failing to love her and build bridges to meet her halfway. In order to get near her you had to cross a shaky bridge over a dangerous pit, and I carried you safely back where you belonged, that you might remain within the boundaries of My Word, under the shelter of My Wings. Instead of making peace with a Jezebel who rejects sound doctrine, burn those treacherous bridges behind you and get away from her...fast! And whenever you sense a weight of oppression because you broke away from such a one, that is definitely not Me rebuking you. It is satan! Don’t try to overcome this wicked oppressing principality of satan in your own strength. Get others to pray with you. And as you war against spirits of religious deception, ask Me, the Christ within you, to contend with the spirit of antichrist controlling the life of that dangerous “ministry” which has himself or herself as the center of it, rather than Christ the Lord.
