When Jezebel Manifests - A Word of Warning to Church Leadership. JEHU

I have watched the Demon Spirit Jezebel manifest for the last three years. I thought over time the demon would retreat. I hoped. I prayed. Yet she will not. In doing battle with this spirit I have come to realize that she cannot be defeated unless you call her out and then cast her out. The spirit of Jehu must do this. While I am a Prophet, I am not the one who can do this. The Jehu of the house has to. I can warn, cajole, encourage, identify. But in the end, if Jehu doesn't do what must be done, she will stay in place. I have told the Jehu of the house...I can do no more. It's not my place. Only Jehu can do this job now. It's time to saddle up the horses and go to the House of Jezebel to cast her down.

The identifiers of Jezebel are simple and pretty well developed in this narrative.

There are a few I will elaborate on because they are so clearly demonstrated.

  • To gain identity, glory, recognition, power, and satisfy the need for the "praises of men". This is a consequence of the desire for love and self-worth focused on SELF.

  • Secondly the Jezebel spirit is a men hater and seeks to emasculate all men, and divest them of their authority and power over others. It fosters a distrust and hatred of men in general. The "Jezebel spirit" is in a constant agitation, terribly aggressive, very determined, callous, controlling, selfish, power-hungry, manipulative, unrepentant, deceitful spirit, an overwhelmingly evil spirit, and those are mostly only it's good points! Indeed this spirit can be definitely named "Satan's woman".

There are two main types of the Jezebel spirit:

  • The high-profile type is generally gregarious, outspoken and highly visible. She is often seen as the "woman who wears the pants in the family".

  • The low-profile type is soft-spoken, giving the illusion of being solicitous, motherly, protective, even appearing very submissive. The low-profile type may be the most dangerous, as she is the most difficult to discern. She relies heavily on manipulation for her power, in extremely subtle performances.

CLUES TO A JEZEBEL SPIRIT - If you wonder if you have a manifesting demon Jezebel in your church or fellowship, here are some clues. If He or She manifests very many of these, you probably have a Jezebel needing casting out. JEHU, be aware. She wants your position. Jezebel is:
  • Deceiver - She will tell you want you want to hear, but her words just don't ring true. Jezebel.
  • Un-submitted - She will pretend to be a team player, but isn't. In the end she will do her thing over the purpose you provided leadership on. She resents your authority.
  • Power-Hungry - She wants to be in charge. That's why she is un-submitted. She wants power.
  • Intelligent - Sadly, she is able. She is smart. She is clever. But she is not willing to use it for YOUR good. Just her own agenda.
  • Hard Worker - She will work very hard. In fact her agenda is to make you so dependant on her you won't cast her down. She is involved in EVERY SINGLE ministry of the church. It's her way of power. Dependence. Emasculation.
  • Self Worship - In the end, it's about her. She sees herself as the star. Put her on a platform and the look at me syndrome kicks into overdrive. She craves the center of attention. Addicted to prominence.
  • Jealous - When someone obviously better than her shows up, she manifests intense jealousy and will to to great lengths to destroy her rival.
  • Manipulator - She doesn't play fair. Don't expect her to. She is only interested in her. She will coach, cajole, manipulate, anything to be the Queen Bee
  • Domineering - She will always want center stage. In charge. The queen or king. Never willing to give anyone any sunshine. In fact, you can always tell by a clock how much she needs to be in charge. She will always make up the bulk of the attention.
  • Unrealistic Expectations of Others - This is to maintain her superiority. She will pick weaker people and put them in a place where they will do badly or even fail so she can appear to bail them out. It's a way to prop up herself.
  • Perfectionist - She will push and push and push for better. It's a control system. And she pushes herself to create an atmosphere that causes others to believe they are not good enough.
  • Seduction, Control, Manipulation - She will use anything including sexual innuendo to get here way. She is a flirt when she needs to be and a witch at other times. It's all about demonic influence.
  • Ambitious - JEHU, she wants your job. She believes she could do it better. And she is going to try to take your platform from you as much as possible.
  • Convinced - She is confident she is right and everyone else is wrong. If people would just listen to her we wouldn't have these problems.
  • Murmuring, Complaint, and Criticism - Part of her strategy is to use criticism to further her cause. She will look for willing ears and fill them with venom. Jezebel.
  • Infirmities and Disease - She thrives on people's ailments. In fact she isn't happy unless you are manifesting something she can bail you out from. Worse, she is constantly plagued by some kind of disease or another. Always has. She uses disease, hers or others to maintain her position.
  • Superiority Complex - She really believes she is better than others, or at least she wants to think she is. She will try to take away any platform because she thinks she could do it better.
  • Bitterness and Resentment - When things don't go her way, she becomes bitter and angry. She resents the fact that others get exposure that SHE didn't get. A queen bee stings.
  • Jezebel and Children - This is the most insidious of all. She claims to LOVE children, but she uses them to further her means. She is always ready to help in Children's ministry because to THEM she CAN be the queen bee.

The last characteristic is the Jezebel Spirit is she wants to silence the Prophets of God. She wishes I didn't write and post this. She wishes I would shut up about all this. She knows this is about her. She would silence me if she could.

I won't stay silent. It's shut up in my bones. Until Jehu of the house throws her down, I will not be silent.

This is a word of Warning to Jehu. That's what a Prophet does.

Excellent writing, I just fled a house where the Jehu; Pastor tolerates Jezebel. So sad, God said to me exit gracefully.I will never submit to the ruling evil spirit. Saints the spirit is real, Pastors deal with and "throw down and out" the spirit or freely give your soul to satan. Shalom. Love your post on this.

Yeah, I run into those controlling types in churches-an air of superiority and self-righteousness, and critical spirit. I think she is often accompanied by a Leviathan type spirit or a weak-willed Ahab.
