This is from my experience, seeking the LORD, reading various books, and getting hit by a Jezebel spirit because of mistakes I’ve made through words or actions or because I had an open door for it to enter to attack me.
NOTE: I am purposefully not capitalizing the names of the spirits, I’m choosing not to honor them, with the exceptions of if a name begins a sentence or when I am talking of Jezebel in the Bible.
IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER AND BE AWARE OF THESE THINGS:
- Always remember you are praying about the spirit of jezebel, not that the person is a jezebel. Saying a person’s name, says that you are saying they are that spirit. They are not the spirit, but they might have the spirit within them. When you attach a person’s name to it, then you are opening a door, for the enemy to take you before the LORD, for judgment in saying that someone is a jezebel, which opens the door for the enemy to attack you.
- A jezebel spirit is an end time spirit. So it is nothing to ignore in a church or in a person. It is named in Revelation 2:19-23 (NLT)
“I know all the things you do – your love, your faith, your service, and your patient endurance. And I can see your constant improvement in all these things. But I have this complaint against you. You are permitting that woman – that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet – to lead my servants astray. She is encouraging them to worship idols, eat food offered to idols, and commit sexual sin. I gave her time to repent, but she would not turn away from her immorality. Therefore I will throw her upon a sickbed, and she will suffer greatly with all who commit adultery with her, unless they turn away from all their evil deeds. I will strike her children dead. And all the churches will know that I am the one who searches out the thoughts and intentions of every person. And I will give to each of you whatever you deserve.”
- A jezebel’s main assignment in a church or a relationship is to divide and conquer or take over the church or relationship from top to bottom. So a jezebel operates with spirits of death and destruction.
- If there is one jezebel in a church, then there are usually many. There will usually be one main jezebel spirit that operates as the “queen or king” and the rest will be baby jezebel’s in training to rule and reign. Someone with a jezebel spirit loves to be admired and idolized.
- Because there are usually many, your first strategy, is to recognize or identify who the queen or king is, and then who the jezebel babies are, so that you know your enemies. Ask God for greater discernment consistently, and to show them to you, or speak to you about them or in other words to expose the enemy wherever he is at, to those who need to know, so that when you see a jezebel spirit in action, you will know what they are, as well as the partners that operate with them. Ask God also that you, and all those He exposes the spirits to, will know the truth, accept the truth, and be obedient to whatever God tells them to do, in Jesus Name, amen.
- A jezebel spirit can operate out of a man or woman. We usually notice them in women first, because the Biblical Jezebel was a woman, so it is easier for us to think of women operating with this spirit. Those operating through men, are usually harder to detect, and are more subtle in their words and actions. If you think someone is operating with this spirit, then ask the LORD for confirmation.
- A jezebel spirit will do everything it can to close the mouth of the prophets or those speaking the truth. They will also do everything they can to get rid of or destroy those with a prophetic voice / anointing or get control of them.
- A jezebel spirit will target the leadership first, so pastors, worship leaders, apostles, elders, anyone who is in leadership and has a voice that is heard are likely targets. They will work from the bottom up, if needed, to be best friends with them or to become them.
Their next target or objective is either a worship leader or leader of youth. Why, you ask? If they become a worship leader they can manipulate the service to their advantage for attention or religion, which they like.
When they are a youth leader, they can target those with a prophetic anointing and get them under “control” at an early age, to quench the prophetic in them, and because the one with the jezebel spirit has a close relationship with religion and legalism, it will also quench freedom in the youth.
The greater the earthly or physical authority a person has, the greater the spiritual authority that dwells within them. So a person in leadership with a jezebel spirit will have greater spiritual authority than a person in the congregation or among the body of the church who does not have a “title”, thus, less authority, unless God has given them an anointing to deal with it.
This is not just physical authority in the church. A CEO of a company would have greater spiritual authority than an employee’s spiritual authority.
Jehu was given the authority by God to overcome Jezebel. 2 Kings 9:6-10,
“And Jehu arose, and they went into the house. And the prophet poured the oil on Jehu’s head and said to him, thus says the LORD, the God of Israel: I have anointed you king over the people of the LORD, even over Israel. You shall strike down the house of Ahab your master, that I may avenge the blood of My servants the prophets and of all the servants of the LORD (who have died) at the hands of Jezebel. For the whole house of Ahab shall perish, and I will cut off from Ahab every male, bond or free, in Israel. I will make the house of Ahab like the house of Jeroboam son of Nebat and like the house of Baasha son of Ahijah. And the dogs shall eat Jezebel in the portion of Jezreel, and none shall bury her. And he opened the door and fled,” (fulfilled in 2 Kings 9: 33-37).
It would be wise to pray that the Jehu anointing starts to manifest and come forth for the days ahead, to help overcome and destroy the jezebels that are rising now.
- Those with a jezebel spirit are double-minded. So, whoever they target, they try to be really nice to them, to gain their confidence and trust. They often try to be over zealous in becoming indispensible to whoever they have targeted, often building an unholy soul-tie to that person and a co-dependent relationship, where the one with the jezebel spirit rules and reigns. They talk one way to your face and the total opposite when your back is turned or you are away from them. They are not nice and will stab you in the back any chance they get.
- Once they have gained the confidence and trust of their target, they will throw a spiritual blanket over their victims. This spiritual blanket limits what the victims/ targeted ones see and are aware of, in that they see that those with a jezebel spirit only do good. They feel that others are out to attack those with a jezebel spirit and are trying to harm them. So the one who is targeted/ leader either disregards any warnings they receive from others regarding those with the jezebel spirit, that they have surrounded themselves with, or they defend those with the jezebel spirit saying they are misunderstood or being picked on. The blinded victim / leader, feels the person with the warning of the jezebel spirit, just doesn’t know those with the jezebel spirit well enough and usually ignores them or asks them to leave the church or group, if they persist.
- A jezebel spirit has many co-conspirators or partners in crime. These spirits are what operates through them or are characteristics of them and are sent against you, when they attack you spiritually. All may not be there, but it will be a combination of many of these listed.
The partners may include the following spirits: ahab, leviathan, python, deaf and dumb, religion, legalism, confusion, distraction, forgetfulness, idolatry, pride, attention seeking, gossip, independent, know it all, unteachable, mind control, double-mindedness, divination, witchcraft, occult, familiar spirits, division, co-dependence, manipulation & control, narcissist, subtly, poverty, lack, debt, death & destruction, rebellion, defiance, opposition, stubbornness, bullying, intimidation, condemnation, accusation, oppression, lying, deception, deviousness, perversion, lust, sexual sins, infirmity, sickness, disease, anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, hate, rage, self-pity, revenge, and many more.
A jezebel spirit attacks mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and financially and usually gives no quarter or once they start, it is only the LORD that gets them to stop or let go of you, in their attack against you.
Physical manifestations of an attack by a jezebel spirit may cause you to experience physical attacks or feeling like you are stabbed in the back or heart, or be confused (confusion), have headaches feeling like you have a band around your head (mind control).
You might struggle with debt, or suddenly be overwhelmed by finances or become sick suddenly.
Can’t breathe? It might be a spiritual python wrapped around your neck or chest trying to constrict and keep you from speaking the Word of God, or wanting death and destruction upon you.
Are your eyes hurting? This may be divination trying to keep you from spiritually seeing what they are doing.
Feeling like you are carrying ten tons on your shoulders, this is often oppression weighing you down.
These are examples of physical manifestations of an attack from someone with a jezebel spirit, there are more, just look at the partners of a jezebel spirit.
- When a “queen / king” jezebel leaves a church or group, there will be a power struggle between the jezebel babies, as to who gets to rule and reign next.
Also when a person with a jezebel spirit leaves, there are oftentimes others who leave with them, out of “loyalty” to them. They will leave with the one with the jezebel spirit, due to the unholy soul-ties or co-dependent spirits, as they feel they can’t live without the one with the jezebel spirit.
WHAT TO DO:
- If at all possible, have a prayer partner, remember, where two or more are gathered, it is so.
“I also tell you this: If two of you agree down here on earth concerning anything you ask, My Father in heaven will do it for you. For where two or three gather together because they are mine, I am there among them.” Matthew 18:19-20.
You will need the camaraderie and additional support and wisdom, another warrior can help provide. Sometimes it is just nice to have someone else to air your ideas to, or get confirmation from or to be able to make a 911 call to, when you need emergency prayer.
- Pray protection for yourself.
“Until now you have asked nothing of My name. Ask and you will receive, that your joy may be full,” John 16:24.
- Thank God for His protection, in all ways that He is protecting you and ask Him to continue to protect you, your loved ones, prayer partners, and pets. Remember, if the enemy can’t get you, because of God protecting you, then he will go for those you love the most, to disarm you and cause you to want to stop your offense against him.
- Thank God for the angels that He has assigned to you.
“For He orders His angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you with their hands to keep you from striking your foot on a stone,” Psalm 91:11-12 (NLT).
- Bind unholy lookers and watchers (demon spies) sent by the enemy and those in witchcraft, and send them to the feet of Jesus. They do what spies do, spy on you to find out what you are doing or saying so they can report back to the enemy. The enemy can’t be everyplace all the time, he isn’t God. He has to depend on others to get his information.
“And he remembered the dreams he had had many years before. He said to them, ‘You are spies! You have come to see how vulnerable our land has become.'” Genesis 42:9 (NLT).
“Then Joshua secretly sent out two spies from the Israelite camp at Acacia. He instructed them, ‘Spy out the land on the other side of the Jordan River, especially around Jericho.’ So the two men set out and came to the house of a prostitute, named Rahab and stayed there that night,” Joshua 2:1 (NLT).
They sent spies to Bethel (formerly known as Luz), who confronted a man coming out of the city. They said to him, “Show us a way into the city, and we will have mercy on you,” Judges 1:23-24 (NLT).
“Saul camped along the road beside the hill of Hikilah, near Jeshimon, where David was hiding. But David knew of Saul’s arrival, so he sent out spies to watch his movements,” 1 Samuel 26:3-4 (NLT).
- Declare that you are cutting off, and disconnecting (with your spiritual sword) anything used by the enemy to spy (modern technology uses lines, wires, drones, etc). Tell them, in the Name of Jesus they will never be used to spy again, send them to the feet of Jesus.
- Command the enemy: enemy, you will not retaliate against me, my loved ones, my prayer partners, my pets, or anyone I would speak to, pray for, or do anything with today, for anything I would say, do, or pray, NO RETALIATION! In Jesus Name, amen.
- Ask God to cover you with the blood of Jesus.
“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the Blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin,” 1 John 1:7 (NKJV).
- Put a hedge of thorns around yourself.
“So satan answered the LORD and said, “Does Job fear God for nothing? Have you not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land,” (Job 1:9-10).
- Cover yourself with a garment of praise.
“To console those who mourn in Zion, to give them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they may be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified,” Isaiah 61:3 (NKJV).
- Cover yourself with the Full Armor of God
“Finally, grow powerful in union with the LORD, in union with His mighty strength! Use all the armor and weaponry that God provides, so that you will be able to stand against the deceptive tactics of the Adversary. For we are not struggling against human beings, but against the rulers, authorities and cosmic powers governing this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm. So take up every piece of war equipment God provides; so that when the evil day comes, you will be able to resist; and when the battle is won, you will still be standing. Therefore, stand! Have the belt of truth buckled around your waist, put on righteousness for a breastplate, and wear on your feet the readiness that comes from the Good News of shalom. Always carry the shield of trust, with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. and take the helmet of deliverance, along with the sword given by the Spirit, that is the Word of God, as you pray at all times, with all kinds of prayers and request, in the Spirit, vigilantly and persistently, for all God’s people,” (Ephesians 6:10-18 (CJB).
- Ask God to guard your tongue, your thoughts, words, and deeds/ actions that you would only do what the LORD wants you to do, that you would be OBEDIENT TO GOD ALONE.
Father, I lift up and give to You, anyone at ____ (place where the jezebel/ witchcraft spirits are manifesting) with the jezebel and/or witchcraft sprits.
I ask LORD that you would convict them. That they would want you more desperately, than anything or anyone else, that they want to serve and be obedient to you all the days of their lives.
Father, if they don’t choose you, then LORD, I ask that you would remove them to a place where they can’t hurt anyone, in Jesus’ Name, amen.
By doing it this way, you haven’t accused anyone of having those spirits. You have given them to the LORD, for Him to do with as He sees fit. You have asked for their hearts to be changed to follow God and if they choose not to, that He will remove and take them to a place where they can’t hurt anyone.
Pray this daily and any other time the LORD tells you to pray it.
When doing it this way you have prayed for and blessed your enemy.
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies; do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you,” Luke 6:27-28.
Does it work? YES! But it is in God’s timing, not ours. I’ve seen it go both ways, where someone’s heart is so turned to the LORD, you know only He could have done it. I’ve also seen where God has removed someone to a far, far away place.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation, and uphold me by Your generous Spirit. Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners shall be converted to you. In Jesus Name, amen. (Psalm 51:10-13 (NKJV)).
God Bless You!
