It would take many books to cover the subject of Jezebel and
Ahab fully, and we can only hope to share some of the major things about these
evil spirits. Although these spirits, by
other names, were perhaps among the very first to be revealed in the Bible, the
story of Jezebel and Ahab serves to give us insight on how these spirits
manifest themselves and how to combat them.
King Ahab broke God's laws by marrying Jezebel, a non-Israelite who
worshipped Babylonian gods and goddesses.
** God considers him the most
evil king ever. ** He soon became an ardent worshipper of his
wife’s deities. *** Jezebel was a beautiful woman and Ahab was a
pushover for such. He gave way to sexual
lust and loved to participate in ceremonial sex orgies that were part of the
worship of Ashteroth, the demon wife of Baal (Baal is the general name given to
deities). ** (groves) Jezebel was the chief priestess of the cult
of Ashtorah **, which featured temple prostitution, ceremonial orgies, and all
manner of sexual promiscuity, including incest, pornography, adultery,
fornication, infant sacrifice and disdain for marriage. So it is with Ahab-infested men today, who
love pornography, masturbation, fornication, adultery and a host of other
sexual activities. Ahab’s marriage to
Jezebel was a union made in hell. Keep
in mind that the extent to which both men and women are involved in the
activities associated with these spirits depends on the intensity level or
strength of the spirits living in them.
The spirit of Jezebel is a ruler in Satan's kingdom; perhaps
of the highest rank among Satan’s strong men.
Truth be told, that devil existed long before Jezebel came on the scene,
as we will find later. Her predecessors,
one of which was the original queen of Babylon, was called the goddess of a
thousand names, including Astar, Cybele, Queen of Heaven, Virgin Mother of God,
Madonna, Pele, Mother Kali, Kwan Yin, Easter, and Mother of Wisdom and all
mankind. That spirit (we will refer to
it as a “she” for convenience sake) is a spirit of witchcraft, mind control,
manipulation and a nest of related spirits.
Of course, the companion spirit to Jezebel is the spirit of Ahab. Men can have Jezebel too, but perhaps 95% of
the time, it dwells in women. You can
read about Jezebel and Ahab in 1 Kings 16:25 to the end of 1 Kings 22:53. Go to my Spiritual Warfare Manual and to the
chapter on the Spirit of Jezebel on my website:
Women with the spirit of Jezebel are demanding, controlling
and manipulative. However, she can be
seemingly soft-spoken and clinging but in the final analysis, she always gets
her way. Such women have rejection, unforgiveness
and bitterness against male authority.
Mother is very often a person with that spirit too - controlling and
manipulative. She's the boss of the
family. Father is laid back, nice guy
and in his own world. He is also a
victim of rejection. Women tend to
counter rejection by becoming controlling, manipulative and aggressive, while
men tend to have many fears and become non-aggressive, lack ambition, are lazy
and irresponsible. A Jezebel wife does
it all. Jezebel usually marries a man
who has the Ahab spirit in him. She
needs someone to play the clown. He is a
nice guy, but wife is the spiritual one.
Jezebel in the church loves to cozy up to the pastor or
leaders. Her intent is to control the
church. Remember, it's the spirit and
not the woman, although she is the one that gives in. Here are many holy and righteous women, but
Jezebel is self-promoting and self-glorifying.
She desires to rule. She will
attend almost every meeting, promote her spiritual ideas and is known as a
Before you can cast this spirit out, you may have to first
cast out her servants - subordinate spirits under the control of this ruler
spirit. She is the queen and has many
spirits under her, such as unforgiveness, hatred of father, hatred of men,
bitterness, rejection, rebellion, fear of men and other spirits related to
rejection and the root of bitterness. She
will push her subordinates to the surface while she hides in the dungeon. She is sometimes seen as an overweight, naked
woman with attendants combing her hair and fussing with her. At other times, she is seen as a black-widow
spider with the face of a beautiful woman with dark black hair and red
In the Bible, Jezebel was a murderous spirit who killed
Naboth in order to steal his vineyard and the reins of the kingdom at the same
time. Ahab tacitly gave approval and his
seal to Jezebel because he had no guts or brains to get the vineyard of Naboth
himself. Instead, he pouted and would
not eat when Naboth refused him. 1 Ki.
21:1-5. Ahab men are crybabies and
ineffective compared to Jezebel. Jezebel
will do just about anything to take over control of family, church and
workplace and to accomplish her goals.
She is ambitious, intelligent and aggressive. She thinks most men, including husband, are
either stupid or wimps. 1 Ki. 21:1-20. God’s kingdom order is reversed in an Ahab-Jezebel
Spiritually, you have to also go after the spirit of Ahab in
the husband. He's the one that allows
Jezebel to operate in his wife. An Ahab
husband could be physically strong and manly, but inside, he is a Momma's boy
and hates to fight and argue with his wife, so he takes the easy way out and
caves in to her most of the time. The
children of this relationship are often confused. The daughters often take after their mother
and the sons after father. Daughters may
become lesbians and sons homosexuals. Divorce
is prevalent in the family and mother is the spiritual head instead of father,
who was called by God to be the head priest of the family. Eph. 5:22. He capitulates and allows Jezebel to rule by
default because Ahab is irresponsible and passes the buck. God dealt with King Ahab long before He
brought judgment against Jezebel. In the
end, the men will be held responsible by God.
In Satan's kingdom, the women rule. There are ten female witches for every
male. But, not to worry; Satan and Ahab
have plans. They are just temporarily
using the women for their own gain. When
the time is ripe, they will toss the Jezebel women aside. Rev. 17:16.
Ahab men use Jezebel wives to shelter them against having to go out into
the world and confront all their inner fears.
The ease of casting out Jezebel depends on how strong this
Jezebel spirit is. On a scale from 1 to
10, a five is fairly strong and an eight is into Satanism and out and out
witchcraft. A woman with this spirit
must really desire to be rid of this insidious demon or demons. Sometimes, this spirit will pretend that it
has left, but really hasn't. She will
kick out some lesser spirit in her place and then hide.
Jezebel is a very intelligent and cunning spirit. She can make a person very intelligent. My pastor related that his once had a 14 year old girl in his church. She could multiply five numbers by another five numbers and give the answer in
seconds. When Jezebel was cast out, she
had difficult multiplying two numbers by two other numbers. Jezebel rules the roost. In the church, she strives for recognition
and control, desiring to take over the prayer ministry, Sunday School, music,
etc. She craves attention and worship. Spiritually, she kills the prophets and priests,
as in the days of Elijah the prophet.
Jezebel killed as many of God's prophets and priests as she could
find. 1 Ki. 18:13. If the affected woman is beautiful, she can
be a seducer of men and male leaders.
She works to kill and destroy the church and leadership. But no one sees her. “None seeth me.” Is. 47:** She is often behind every church
division, discord and split. She is a
gossiper or talebearer that brings strife.
Jezebel loves to control the church through prophecies. She calls herself a prophetess. Rev. 2:20.
I once had a Jezebel woman in the audience stare at me and grey worms of
death came out of her eyes and floated to me behind the podium. In the spiritual realm, she sends death
against the prophet and priest. She will
use money, flattery and seduction where possible, to gain control of the
church. She desires recognition to be
able to control.
God hates this spirit.
In Revelation 2:18-29, He promises to destroy Jezebel and all of her
children. Rev. 2:19-23. God promises that all who overcome will have
power over the nations, "and he
shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be
broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star." Rev. 26-28.
Church leaders who cannot handle Jezebel cannot handle nations
either. It takes a strong and seemingly
ruthless determination to rid the church and members of this ugly spirit. **
This spirit is a ruler spirit in Satan's kingdom. Books have been written about this spirit and
we can only give but limited insight.
She is thought of as synonymous with Babylon the Great, although the latter is
more a worldwide demonic system of witchcraft with many facets. In ancient Babylon, women were the true spiritual and
political leaders in a matriarchal society.
They called the shots. When the
Israelites were living in Babylon
during the captivity, they worshipped the Queen of Heaven. Jer. 44:17-19. Her names include "the Virgin" and
"Madonna." Is. 47:1, 5. Madonna is the Latin for “Lady.” She claims that she is God and there is no
other. She seduces God's people and
deceives them into worshipping and following
her. Is. 47:8; Rev. 2:** She is also the spirit of witchcraft. Is. 47:9-13.
All forms of witchcraft and the occult come out of this spirit,
including fortune-telling, astrology, tarot cards, spells, hexes, vexes and so
"Ishtar" or “Easter” is one of her other
names. Ishtar is the Babylonian spirit
of witchcraft and fertility, whose signs are colored eggs and bunnies. Christmas is the birthday of her son, called
Tammuz, the sun god of Babylon,
who is born on the winter solstice of each year (December 23-25) and whose
signs are green trees cut out of the forest, stood upright in the house, and decked
with silver and gold. The Babylonians
gave gifts to one another to celebrate Tammuz' birthday. Jer. 10:1-5.
Both Catholics and Protestants now worship Babylonian gods and goddesses
instead of the Jesus in the Bible. None
of these celebrations are in the Bible and neither Christmas nor Easter were
celebrated by the early church for over 325 years until the Roman Catholic
Church was formed. Read the books of Jewish
historians, Josephus and Eusebius.
God mentions the worship of Tammuz in Ezekiel 8:14-16. It is such an abomination to God that He
calls six angels with destroying weapons, one with an inkhorn. He commands the angel with the inkhorn to
mark the foreheads of only those "men
that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst
thereof. And to the others He said in
mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye
spare, neither have ye pity: slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little
children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin
at My sanctuary. then they began at the4
ancient men where were before the house.
And He said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the
slain: go ye forth. And they went forth,
and slew in the city." Eze.
9:1-7. God has not changed. He is "the
same yesterday, and today, and forever." Heb. 13:8.
We find mention of the mark of God on the foreheads of God's
true servants in Rev. 7:3 and Rev. 9:4.
God instructs His angels not to harm those with His mark on their
forehead at the end of the age and during Tribulation. Could it be that the church is worshipping
Ishtar and Tammuz? If so, we're in big
trouble with God.
There is so much more to be said about this spirit. The first Ahab and Jezebel were Adam and Eve
when they rebelled against God. Adam was
laid back and allowed his wife, Eve, to make her own decision regarding the
forbidden fruit and did not stop her.
Deliverance from this spirit can be quite daunting; but God
will anoint those that desire to do battle against this spirit. Start off by having this woman forgive
everyone that hurt her in the past, especially father and other male
figures. Break the curses that come from
unforgiveness and down the generations.
Have her repent of any controlling, manipulative behavior and
witchcraft. Bind up and cast out
rejection, unforgiveness, bitterness, fear of men, hatred of men, sexual abuse,
etc. If she was a Roman Catholic, break
all vows and dedications made over her to the Virgin Mary. Have her destroy all statues of the Virgin
Mary, Jesus or any other religious figure or painting such as Last Supper,
Bleeding Heart and Mary. We are
commanded not to make any graven or other image of things in heaven, on earth
and under the earth. She needs to
sincerely want to be set free.
Sometimes, you can go directly against Jezebel, but at other times, it
will be a fierce battle. This spirit
usually hides until you get under her skin in battle. She hides in the marrow of the spine. Some people think that she is also the spirit
of Kundalini, a Hindu spirit that is a serpent of 7-1/2 coils living at the
base of the spine. When Jezebel comes
out, she will come out with wailing or screaming. When you hear screaming during deliverance,
it is usually Jezebel or witchcraft.
Don't be afraid of this spirit. God is on your side.
