There are Elijahs and Jezebles in this world. And it’s a battle for power. It may be at work, at home, or at church – but these spirits are present. God tells us to test the spirits. Not every spirit is from God. And not every spirit is friendly.
I recently received an interesting comment on a blog post about Jezebel. You can read it here – STOP TOLERATING THE JEZEBEL SPIRIT. A person thought that the Spirit of Jezebel was just about sex. I have not found that to be true. Yes, the Spirit of Jezebel uses her sexuality to control others, but it’s more than that. So today I thought I would compare and contrast these two spirits.
Leave me a comment if you think of more characteristics to add to these – thanks!
Spirit of Elijah
Stands up for truth and is bold and fearless
Has intimate relationship with God and receives instruction from God. (See 2 Kings 9)
Has the God given Authority to overthrow and overturn Jezebel and her kingdom
Is a Prophet and sees the future and declares it
Is a Minister of Fire and destroys the enemies of the Kingdom of God (See 1 Kings 18)
Confronts Jezebel and her blind followers
Spirit of Jezebel
Seeks her own agenda. She is bold and fearless as well.
Uses Power and Control to manipulate and destroy others
Mocks God and His people
Uses Witchcraft and other dark arts
Puts herself on the throne and sees herself as God
Sets up her own false kingdom where the subjects worship her
Kills, steals, and destroys anyone who does not agree with her
Note to self – Elijahs and Jezebels can be men or women. Its not about gender – it’s a spirit.
As a body of Believers, let us pray for the Lord to raise up the Elijahs to defeat the Jezebels in our Churches, our Schools, our Workplaces and our Homes. Show us your glory Lord, and RAISE UP THE ELIJAHS TO DEFEAT THE JEZEBELS, in Jesus Name.
I recently started a new book from my Pastor. It’s written by a Pastor Tim Baker, and it’s called DEWITCHED – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE DANGERS OF WICCA & WITCHCRAFT. It’s written from a Christian Perspective and compares Christianity, Wicca, and Satanism.
I have teenagers. And I have worked in the school district. Have you been to a Scholastic Book Fair lately? How about the Young Adult Section at the library? Wicca and Witchcraft books abound. They are enticing our children, and this is one mom who says NO! So, I am arming myself – and preparing for battle. Our children’s lives are at sake, and their salvation. I admit, I used to be ignorant. No more. Our children are reading about it at school. Yeah, really. It’s time we wake up.
Here is an excerpt from GoodReads:
Wicca is the fastest-growing religion on today’s college campuses, and is even featured on the covers of popular teen magazines. Christian teens need to know what to believe when it comes to witchcraft. Dewitched equips teens to carry on intelligent conversation with someone from a Wiccan background, know how to defend their faith to a Wiccan, and notice signs of Wicca or witchcraft in their culture.
Dewitched is the must-have resource for any teen, youth pastor, or parent who wants good solid information and advice from a Christian perspective about this popular but dangerous religion.
We all worship something. Some of us worship God, some worship Mother Earth and other gods/godesses, some worship Satan – but we all worship. We all follow something/someone. We all have a ‘code’ we live by. And we all get to choose. I am not here to dishonor your choice. Your choice is your choice. And my choice is my choice. I would ask you to honor that as well.
After my post about How To Recognize a Witch That Comes to Church I had a very good conversation with a member of Wicca. She was kind and helped me understand their beliefs. I am not her Holy Spirit, and she is not mine. Thank you Cat for your comments. But today, more than ever we need to know what we believe an why we believe it.
According to DEWITCHED, in Wicca they believe there is more than one God. They believe there may be many gods or goddesses. This may be based in old Celtic religion. Wiccans do talk to dead spirits/family members. I don’t understand why someone would want to talk to a dead spirit. They are dead! To me that is dancing with death.
Also from the book, Wiccans usually meet outside and worship there with circles and pentagrams. There is a ceremony. They honor and worship the earth. They will use objects for their magic and create personal spell books. They may take objects from someone who they are trying to convert. In the book there was a ceremony using a lock of hair, an object from another person, and then they sealed it with their blood claiming that this person join their coven. Wiccans believe in magic (or magik) and harness this power/energy when they perform their rituals. This energy may be used for good, or for evil, it is up to the Witch.
In the book, Wiccans may go to church, and then make friends with other teens there. Even attend youth group. But then they will ask their new friends to come to one of their services. Or maybe they will ask your teen if they could do a tarot card reading, read an ‘aura’, or practice exiting your body and going into another plane of existence. It may start as simply as giving your teen a pentagram necklace to peak their curiosity. But I am only on Chapter 11, so I’ll have to fill you in on the ending…
It’s real, and it’s time we talk about it church. Because our kids are.
Yes, we all get to make our own choice. And again, it is up to each of us. As a parent I want to train my child in the way to go so when he/she is older they will not depart from it. It’s not about who goes to church on Sunday; it’s about who has a relationship with Jesus Christ, the ONE and only true God. He is the Author of LIFE and lives in them and through them. I want my kids to know Him, to love Him and follow Him. Let them be a witness and a prayer warrior/warrioress. Let them to be the one their friends come to when they need prayer because they know that God hears their prayers and answers.
Children of the King, who have received the deposit on their inheritance already; children who have been adopted into the family of God, no longer orphans, no longer comfortless – but comforted and secure in who they are in Christ. Children who know that they have been redeemed and forgiven by the blood of Jesus; children who know that Jesus died on the Cross for their sins. That His death was a substitute for theirs – yes, the Passover Lamb. And now, there is no need to be afraid. The price was paid for our disobedience.
Children who have been baptized in the NAME OF JESUS, and who hold within them the Power of the Living God with the Holy Spirit. Children who talk in tongues and bring the Kingdom of Heaven to the Kingdom of Earth. Children who are led by Jesus Himself! And greater is the One who is in us that he who is in the world!
Be bold, courageous, and fight my Warrior Princesses and Princes. This is not the time to hide. There are many battles to be won by the Kingdom of God. Yes, the Lord will fight for us, but we need to show up to the battlefield with our armor on!
The wicked flee when no man pursues them, but the [uncompromisingly] righteous are bold as a lion. (Proverbs 28:1 AMP)
Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9 AMP)
In the day when I called, You answered me; and You strengthened me with strength (might and inflexibility to temptation) in my inner self. (Psalm 138:3 AMP)
Since we have such [glorious] hope (such joyful and confident expectation), we speak very freely and openly and fearlessly. (2 Corinthians 3:12 AMP)
There is still a battle going on my friends. And these days the darkness is increasing. We have two choices:
1. Run and hide
2. Shine the Light in the darkness.
I have been silent the last few days. After my last blog post about “How to Recognize a Witch that comes to Church” I have been bombarded by negative comments from practicing witches. Especially on my Tumblr sight. There have been over 40 likes, reblogs, comments etc.(click here to read them for yourself)
And my sister, a practicing shaman, has attacked me as well. I had to choose which way to respond this week. I chose to stand. To stand on the Word of God, the Blood of Jesus, and used my testimony to share what I believe. Some were open to sharing beliefs and thoughts and others just attacked.
It is sad, they have been lied to. Satan is the father of all lies. They have been decieved. They are worshippers, but talk to dead people and spirits instead of Jesus. And their lives eventually will end in death and hell. If they curse us, the curse comes back to them 3 times over. And like the slave girl in Acts 16, they are being used for profit. As we were on our way to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who was possessed by a spirit of divination [claiming to foretell future events and to discover hidden knowledge], and she brought her owners much gain by her fortunetelling.
She kept following Paul and [the rest of] us, shouting loudly, These men are the servants of the Most High God! They announce to you the way of salvation!
And she did this for many days. Then Paul, being sorely annoyed and worn out, turned and said to the spirit within her, I charge you in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her! And it came out that very moment. (Acts 16:16-18)
Yes, “Greater is He who is in us than He who is in the world.” But how will they know if we do not open our mouths and testify? Yes, there will be persecution. But isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be? Be be bold with your faith my friends. Wake up from slumber and apathy. There are souls to be won and lives to be changed. Pray for Light to shine into the darkness, and be willing to take it there. No, not all witches will respond to the light – but that is their choice. That doesn’t mean we don’t shine it. There is a war to be won, and we know who wins!
After doing research on the Jezebel Spirit and how she was a witch, I decided to dig further. I am not an expert in this area. I am a willing vessel of the Lord and share what He shows me. It may be that I am more sensitive to this spirit because I have lived with it. Both of my exs had this spirit. And I have a sister who practices witchcraft and sorcery. I have seen this spirit and know it intimately. I have seen it operate in my home, in the workplace, and in churches. It can operate in a man or a woman. I have seen both.
I am not a fan of witchcraft – black or white. I have seen too many people get deceived by spirits. I search these things out to learn more – from both sides of the fence.
I do find it interesting that both Christians and Witches have this phobia of each other. It’s insane. We all worship something. I am not here to bash what you worship. And I hope you are not here to bash what I worship. Let’s just agree to disagree ok?
Now it happened, when Joram saw Jehu, that he said, “Is it peace, Jehu?”
So he answered, “What peace, as long as the harlotries of your mother Jezebel and her witchcraftare so many?” (2 Kings 9:22 NKJV)
Anytime that you get domination by one person over another the force behind this is evil and very often it is actually witchcraft. Sorcery can work through objects, music, etc. But witchcraft is a dominating satanic force, it is the force that dominates, captivates, and controls. And it works by spells, by curses, and personal domination.
It is NEVER the will of God for one person to DOMINATE another. Anytime you get domination of one person over another the force behind it is evil. That is witchcraft. Wives should not dominate husbands; Husbands should not dominate their wives; Parents should not dominate their children. Pastors should not dominate congregations. The Spiritual is one thing, but the soulish man is another.
Heavenly Versus Demonic Wisdom
Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. (James 3:13-18)
When anybody tries to get somebody to do what they want them to, they are in the ‘soulish’ and it often enters into the demonic. There is a down-gredation. (Earthy, soulish, demonic). Much prayer is soulish. Prayer is not a way to get God to do what we want Him to do. Prayer is not a way to get other people to do what we want them to do. Soulish prayers do not bring the Spirit of God into it but they bring dark, evil, and oppressive power (earthly ,soulish, demonic).
When a person, in the name of being ‘spiritual’, becomes soulish in order to assert to exert his own will over another, express his own personality, get his own desires and ambitions fulfilled, get other people doing what they want, (and it’s usually a woman) that person is in danger of coming under the influence of witchcraft.
According to Derek Prince there are 2 types of witches.
1. Those that know they are witches. They practice with curses and spells. They intend to be witches. They cultivate it. They deal in Satan’s power.
2. Those that do not know that they are witches, and other people do not know they are witches. She is more dangerous. She is usually a good church member. But she is bent on controlling others. (we call them Jezebels)
Pentecostal Witches – Operate in Pentecostal congregations and try to control the Pastor and the Congregation.
Charismatic Witches – Operate in home prayer groups and try to control the prayer group and their husbands as well.
EFFECTS OF WITCHCRAFT
There is a domination present – Many, many women unwillingly dominate their husbands and their families. They try to get everybody doing what they think they should be doing, usually with the best of intentions. In those homes the husband never really takes his place of headship in the family. Though he may be very successful in business, he never develops into the full spiritual person at home due to the pressure in the home that keeps him from developing – that pressure is witchcraft in the wife.
It usually produces rebellion in the children.
It causes a home to break up.
Witchcraft is the #1 home-breaker in the World.
It is the prevalence of witchcraft in the US that causes 1 out of every 2 marriages to end in divorce.
Broken homes are in direct proportion to the power of witchcraft in a Nation.
Measured by that standard, the United States has more witchcraft at work here than any other Nation on the Earth!
But there is hope. There is peace. There is deliverance available. Have your Pastor pray with you and be delivered today from this spirit. Ladies, let your husbands be all who God made them to be. We are not their Holy Spirit. Let go of trying to control your men. God can heal them just like he heals us.
For those seeking deliverance – a word of caution – get a bucket. Often times when you are delivered from this spirit it may come out as a ‘black slime’ as it did in me. Yes, I have been delivered from witchcraft. I know. Repent today, and know peace again. There is hope my friends. Jesus still heals and delivers. And GOD is on the throne, not Jezebel!
Jezebel is a witch. Yes, her father was Ethball, king of the Zidonians, and was both the king and priest of Baal worshipers. Their gods were Baal and Ashtaroth or Astarte. Ahab installed a temple to the Sun-god in Samaria with 450 priests. Jezebel had another sanctuary erected where she fed 400 of them at her table. Cruel and licentious rites were associated with Baal worship. According to BibleHistory.com
Baal (ba’al) was an ancient Canaanite and Mesopotamian deity associated with agriculture. He was believed to be the “giver of life” and mankind was dependant upon him for providing what was necessary to sustain the farms, flocks and herds. He was also called the “son of Dagon” (who was in control of the grain), and “Hadad” the storm god who would provide plentiful rains after hearing his voice (thunder).
And the most amazing thing I found in my research today. Ahab was a Jew and King of Northern Israel at the time. Yet he denounced his Hebrew faith and “took her to wife, and went and served Baal and worshiped him.” (1Kings 16:31) There is a great history lesson on Jezebel here:
Ahab turned his back on God for his relationship with Jezebel. He left his faith, and followed her wicked ways. He was ‘bewitched’ and taken hostage by Jezebel. And he ended up doing things he had not done before – all to keep her approval. Yet, she used him. And all like him.
Jezebel is out for blood. You cannot negotiate with her. She is not interested. She wants to murder you and your children. Seriously. She is out to destroy true worship of Jesus. She is against the Word. She is a witch and will charm her way in to many people’s lives and churches and businesses. Don’t trust her. She is not who she says she is. She is a witch.
God gave Jezebel time to repent. And God gives those with this spirit time to repent. God gave Ahab time to repent too. It could be weeks, months, or years. We don’t know.
I gave her time to repent, but she has no desire to repent of her immorality [symbolic of idolatry] and refuses to do so.
Take note: I will throw her on a bed [of anguish], and those who commit adultery with her [her paramours] I will bring down to pressing distress and severe affliction, unless they turn away their minds from conduct [such as] hers and repent of their doings. (Rev 2:21-22 AMP)
If you have helped a Jezebel, or submitted to one in your past, I urge you to break the soul-ties with this person and repent. Jezebel uses her bewitching powers of seduction to lure her victims in and create soul ties. She pretends to be your friend. She lures you in. Then she uses witchcraft, divination, and the spirit of seduction to tempt and entice you into doing something they would normally not do. She sends spirits to torment your mind, emotions, and imagination. She wants to control you. I found myself falling into all sorts of old destructive behaviors when influenced by this spirit. And I didn’t know why. Even after the relationship/friendship ended there was a ‘residue’. I awoke the other morning with a vision of a snake coiled around me trying to squeeze me to death. It was a ‘leftover’ from the Jezebel. I rebuked it in the name of Jesus and commanded it to leave me, my family, my finances, my health, my home, and my church. Soul ties are created in many ways. It’s not just sex that opens the door to a soul tie. According to Jonas Clark:
Soul ties can be created by :
shared life experiences
loss of a loved one
flattery of the prideful
reaching out to the lonely
agreeing with Jezebels’ offenses, hurts, wounds, and unforgiveness towards those in authority or leadership
Once these soul ties are established, she has won. Jezebels are Narcissistic. They have no concern for you or your feelings. They are out to conquer and win. They lie and they believe their own lies. The justify everything they do. They are never wrong. And they are incapable of forgiveness.
End the relationship. Change your phone number. Do not allow the Jezebel into your life anymore. It is not just her, it is all the demons she caters to that you are letting in as well – into your home, into your peace, into your head. End it.
I awoke last night about 2:20 am. Came downstairs, sat on couch and started to pray. God gave me a vision. I saw a black horse and a black panther with red eyes looking right at me. It was so clear, only lasted a few minutes, but I can still see it in my mind. I asked God what it meant:
From the Bible:
Revelation 6: 5-6 AMP
When He broke open the third seal, I heard the third living creature call out, Come and look! And I saw, and behold, a black horse, and in his hand the rider had a pair of scales (a balance).
And I heard what seemed to be a voice from the midst of the four living creatures, saying, A quart of wheat for a denarius [a whole day’s wages], and three quarts of barley for a denarius; but do not harm the oil and the wine!
“To see a panther and experience fright, denotes that contacts in love or business may be canceled unexpectedly, owing to adverse influences working against your honor. But by killing or overpowering it, you will experience joy and be successful in you undertakings. Your surroundings will take on fair prospects.
If one menaces you by its presence, you will have disappointments in business. Other people will likely recede from their promises to you.
If you hear the voice of a panther, and experience terror or fright, you will have unfavorable news. coming in the way of reducing profit or gain, and you may have social discord; no fright forebodes less evil.
A panther, like the cat, seen in a dream, portends evil to the dreamer, unless he kills it.”
“If you dream of seeing or riding a white horse, the indications are favorable for prosperity and pleasurable commingling with congenial friends and fair women. If the white horse is soiled and lean, your confidence will be betrayed by a jealous friend or a woman.
If the horse is black, you will be successful in your fortune, but you will practice deception, and will be guilty of assignations. To a woman, this dream denotes that her husband is unfaithful.
To dream of dark horses, signifies prosperous conditions, but a large amount of discontent. Fleeting pleasures usually follow this dream.
I rebuke the wild cats — leopards, lions, jaguars, which represent higher occult powers–that would attack my life, city, or nation in the name of Jesus.
And in another article I read from Prophetic Dreamers says the Black Panther represents a High Degree of Witchcraft or Occult. Perhaps the Lord is going to put this in the scales and make a judgement for those who practice this lifestyle. Lord, lead them all to You in Jesus Name. We all want someone to worship and they have been lied to. The Devil has come to kill, steal, and destroy. But you Lord have come to give life and life more abundantly. Show them the truth Lord. Give them all a Saul to Paul experience Lord, in Jesus Name!
Very interesting this comes on Election Day. Thank you Lord for Revelation.
