Many western pastors and leaders use My name from platforms across America with many thousands coming to a salvation experience, yet they are using My name in vain.
To the onlooker, it appears wonderful and totally kingdom, but in the inner circle it is very apparent that something is rotten at the core. The fact is that My name is being used to build a man’s kingdom, not mine. Promoting one church over another, lifting up men as gods, turning the kingdom into a market place, offering whatever the people want. If it will draw a crowd lets do it! People are saved, healed, and baptized in My Spirit, so no one would ever question the authenticity of the leaders. However, when people learn to walk in the Spirit, something unusual begins to happen called spiritual depression.
Up until this time everything was new, fresh and exciting, then suddenly one day you leave the meeting with a sadness, feeling that something is wrong. At first you blame it on yourself and pass it off as a bad day. But as time goes on, service after service and meeting after meeting you see and hear things that turn your depression into grieving. From grieving it moves to the unbearable state, and you look for reasons not to attend meetings. Let Me put your mind at ease, it’s not you, it’s My Holy Spirit that is the source of your inner man grieving, Ephesians 4:30.
You are feeling the grieving of My Spirit at the fact that a Jezebel spirit has caused men to use My name in vain, to build a church founded on the doctrines of men. Doing all the right things for the wrong reasons. Feeding, clothing, visiting even giving their lives, but without love! In the kingdom they are just noise, 1 Corinthians 13.
The love expressed by Jezebel is a very conditional human love, as long as you are in agreement and promoting the man made kingdom, you have the favor and blessing of the leader. However to question or challenge any decision of the rulers, brings great disfavor, reprimand and rebuke.
No amount of scriptural proof is accepted as a reason for your so called rebellion! Any further questioning will label you rebellious and in-submissive and possibly part of an insurrection, with a need to be closely watched with suspicion. Now what about your grieving Spirit? The grieving you are experiencing is My grief over you having any part of My name being used in vain. He is grieving over you encouraging innocent people to support something that you can’t stand being a part of. He is grieving over you covering up your grieving, for the sake of your comfort. He is grieving over you not speaking what I have told you to speak for fear of rejection. Your grieving demands that you take action! Your inaction brings increased grieving. Continued grieving with no action will lead you to compromise and a lukewarm state!
Remember: No one walks on eggshells in My kingdom, John 8:36. Everyone in jezebel’s palace walks on eggshells, to keep her happy! 1 Kings 19:1-3.
Jezebel is a great seducer and when that does not work she resort to fearful threats. You must overcome and break free or support her use of My name in vain! By your inaction she will destroy you and others, but by your action you will throw her down, 2 Kings 9:33. Your toleration of her will not be taken lightly:
Notwithstanding I will say: I have a few things against thee, because you tolerate that woman Jezebel, which calls herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce My servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.  And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.  Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.  And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am He which searches the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your action or inaction,” Revelation 2:20-23.
