Elijah Identifies but Jehu must Defeat

The Story is in 2 Kings 9:2-37.  Elijah goes to Jehu as commander to tell him Jezebel  who murdered the prophets to silence them was to be overthrown.  Jehu confronts and Jezebel is thrown down.  Eaten by dogs.

That same conundrum goes on today. Many well meaning senior leaders of ministries and churches are made aware of Jezebel in their fellowship usually by a prophet.  They are usually hard working. They are usually the ones who the leader depends on. They get things done.  They are dependable.  They also have power.  Indispensable.

The senior leader doesn't want to eliminate Jezebel, he or she believe they can reform them.  That by pointing out behavior they are able to deal with the spirit.  Yes it is a spirit.  It has never worked and won't work now.

It cannot be negotiated with, it cannot be reformed, it can only be cast out. It is a determined demon.  It won't go quietly.  So complaining that your church or leaders have a Jezebel spirit is the wrong approach.  YOU senior leader ARE the problem (In my best Maury Povich voice).  You are playing with fire.  Evict them.  Throw them down.  You tolerate Jezebel because you are dependent on Jezebel. You fear that spirit.  The Jezebel spirit has sold you the lie that if you take a stand you will loose members.  Casting out, casting down it the only cure and then mark them well.  Don't let them back in.

You have put up with Jezebel ushers, Jezebel worship leaders, Jezebel associate pastors, Jezebel Sunday School leaders.  You are convinced that if you say something half your church will leave.

As a result you have inferior ushering, demonic worship, undermining associates and domineering Sunday school crippling the young that should be learning the heart of God.  

Hear the word of the Lord Pastor, Sr Leader, Apostle... you are accountable for this:  

I have against you that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, the one calling herself a prophetess and teaching and misleading Revelation 2:20

There was never anyone like Ahab, who sold himself to do evil in the eyes of the LORD, urged on by Jezebel his wife. 1 Kings 21:25

You are the Ahab if you tolerate and sell yourself to her.  You must throw her down.  (Her and Him are universal).  You have precious ones who are being abused and led astray.  How long will you linger between two opinions.

As a prophet I am telling you, but you must defeat the demon.. or remain cursed to go into decline as your ministry rots from the inside.

Now that you know the truth.. what will you do Sir or Madam?  Tolerance or Throwing Down?
