The Bible says,
“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against EVIL SPIRITS in the heavenly places.” Ephesians 6:12 NLT
The Jezebel Spirit is one heck of an evil spirit that fights men to take away their God-given authority. In order for someone to have the evil spirit of Jezebel, this person must be a woman! Jesus made this very clear while admonishing the church of Thyatira. He told them:
“But I have this complaint against you. You are permitting that woman—that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet—to lead my servants astray.” Revelations 2:20 NLT
Here, Jesus specifically emphasizes the word “THAT” – you are permitting “THAT WOMAN” – that Jezebel. Jesus was referring to the infamous, wicked woman, Queen Jezebel, from the Old Testament days, who was known for undermining the authority of her husband, King Ahab, by controlling and manipulating him, and taking over his leadership. (See 1. Kings 21)
The reason the Jezebel Spirit only pertains to women is because men have been given natural authority from God. It’s not something they would need to fight to get as they already have it, as the Bible says,
“But there is one thing I want you to know: The head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.” 1. Corinthians 11:3 NLT
The evil Jezebel Spirit is designed to turn God’s order upside down. The woman becomes the man and the man becomes the woman, causing men to be completely emasculated!
It is for this reason, that the apostle Paul instructed the church,
“I do not let women teach men or have authority over them.” 1. Timothy 2:12 NLT
But the Jezebel woman hates it and gets very offended when she is being told what to do. Being corrected makes her feel extremely uncomfortable and worthless. It’s not in her DNA. She will always fight and argue to keep the right to be the leader and have the final say. She needs to be the one in charge. She loves for others to praise and worship her as being someone very special. She is prideful, self-centered, and has no empathy. She is a narcissist, someone who is not able or willing to admit any wrongdoing. She thinks she is never wrong, and therefore she will never repent or take any ownership!
As Jesus said:
“I gave her time to repent, but SHE DOES NOT WANT to turn away from her immorality.” Revelation 2:21 NLT
The Jezebel woman is not a true Christian believer, but a deceiver who loves to prophecy and teach on behalf of God. In reality, she leads you away from worshiping God into worshiping and adoring her. The Christian Church has allowed Jezebel women to rule for decades, causing much harm, and the lives of many to be destroyed! Despite this, she is more than ever being tolerated, allowed, and revered. The Jezebel Spirit represents strong, stubborn, rebellious women, who defy God’s authority.
