Traits of the Jezebel Spirit
During the summer, it is magical to watch a storm coming from the horizon. In the distance, you can see the lightning dancing across the sky making the sky light up as if there were thousands of lights shining all over.
However, as the storm comes closer and closer there is nothing exciting about it anymore. The lightning is striking on the ground all around and the trees are popping, cracking and tumbling down. The winds have become hurricane force winds tearing and whirling everything that dares get in the way or stop it. After the storm has passed by, the destruction and devastation caused by the storm will take month’s maybe years to rebuild.
In the same way that a natural storm leaves behind a path of ruins in both property and lives, an individual who operates in a Jezebel Spirit causes a detrimental effect on all the individuals that were in this person’s path.
Ephesians 6:12 – For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
The Roots of Jezebel/ Heaven Awaits, discusses how an individual whether male or female would be open to an evil presence such as a Jezebel spirit. There are two basic types of the spirit, aggressive or sneaky and charming.
The aggressive Jezebel comes from an environment where the father is completely absent or passive in the father role, there is some form of abuse, or there is already a Jezebel spirit in either father or mother.
The sneaky and charming Jezebel comes from an environment where there is already a Jezebel spirit presence in the home and abusive relationships in adulthood.
Isaiah 65:6-7 – “See, it stands written before me: I will not keep silent but will pay in full; I will pay it back into their laps, both your sins and the sins of your fathers,” says the LORD. “Because they burned sacrifices on the mountains and defied me on the hills, I will measure into their laps the full payment for their former deeds.”
30 Traits of the Jezebel Spirit/ Truth in Reality, reveals thirty different qualities of the Jezebel Spirit that finds access through the carnal flesh: refuses to admit guilt or wrong, uses people to accomplish the agenda, withholds information, lies, sequesters information, using information, sows seeds of discord, commands attention, is vengeful and the list goes on and on.
Proverbs 6: 16-19 – There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.
The main characteristic of the Jezebel Spirit is control. Does a person with the Jezebel Spirit know he/she is operating in this spirit? Yes, but these individuals are hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared with a hot iron, 1 Timothy 4:2.
As these individuals were growing up, they probably had plenty of fights with others who let them know what they were doing and what they were like. However, they did not care.
The individuals operating in the Jezebel Spirit do not care if they destroy others. These individuals take great joy in plotting and scheming to hurt and destroy others; Psalm 52:1-7, Psalm 64:1-10, Psalm 73:6-12, 18-20, 27, Proverbs 26:24-28, 2 Timothy 3:2-5, while they acquire more and more control over a person or situation.
The Bible is not merely good reading. God’s Word is real help for real life. Deuteronomy 32: 34-35 – Have I not kept this in reserve and sealed it in my vaults? It is mine to avenge; I will repay. In due time their foot will slip; their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them.
