The spirit of Jezebel in marriage
We will take a gander at three models in the Bible of a Jezebel Spirit.
1. 1 Kings 16:30-31 we read about sovereign Jezebel the spouse of ruler Ahab. Jezebel was the little girl of the esteemed minister of Sidon. She revered the symbols of Baal and Ashtoreth. The love of these divine beings was connected to sexual corruption and desire. She lived in an environment where sex was utilized to pick up impact and authority. She controlled and controlled her significant other Ahab to acquaint Baal revere with Israel. She was compelled to the point that she turned every one of the men of Israel away from God with the exception of a little gathering of 7000 that would not go under her impact. The spirit called ‘Jezebel’ existed sometime before Queen Jezebel existed, yet was given her name since she was so totally constrained by this devil. This equivalent evil spirit is obvious today in the congregation and in our general public.
2. The case of Herodias in the New Testament. We read about her in Matthew 14:1-12. She was the spouse of Philip the sibling of King Herod. She was clearly associated with a two-faced association with Herod. At the point when John the Baptist reproached the lord about this relationship, he was placed in jail and later executed in line with Herodias. There are numerous likenesses among Herodias and Jezebel in the Old Testament. One of the primary qualities is that the two of them contradicted spiritual power. Similarly, as Jezebel was against Elijah in the Old Testament, Herodias was against John the Baptist, who came in the spirit of Elijah.
3. Jezebel in the Book of Revelations 2:20-22.”Nevertheless, I have a couple of things against you, since you permit that lady Jezebel, who considers herself a prophetess, to educate and seduce my servants to submit extramarital perversion and eat things yielded to symbols. Furthermore, I gave her an opportunity to atone for her extramarital perversion, and she didn’t apologize. To be sure I will cast her into a sickbed, and the individuals who submit infidelity with her into incredible tribulation, except if they apologize for their deeds.”
We will take a gander at three significant parts of the spirit of Jezebel. Firstly, how would we be able to know whether we have this spirit? Also, how we can know whether we are under the influence of this spirit originating from others. What’s more, thirdly, how to wreck the impact of this spirit over our lives.
The qualities of the spirit of Jezebel:
– Control and control: Jezebel in the Old Testament controlled and controlled her powerless spouse Ahab. In 1 Kings 21:8-10, we read, about the passing of Naboth. Jezebel utilized the authority of the ruler and controlled the men of Israel to murder the honest Naboth and take his vineyard. We likewise have the case of Herodias, who had a Jezebel spirit, control Herod to slaughter John the Baptist.
This spirit is obvious today in the congregation where spiritual pioneers control and control those under them. Similarly, as Jezebel abused the authority of the lord, so these pioneers abuse their spiritual power and control and compromise the individuals that they lead. They regularly control individuals to give cash. This spirit can likewise show in the family, where a spouse will command and control her significant other. In spite of the fact that this spirit can impact the two people, it jumps at the chance to control and control individuals without power. Along these lines, it is more much of the time showed in ladies than in men. Be that as it may, there are numerous men who likewise have a spirit of Jezebel. This spirit is predominant in specific religions where the ladies are completely controlled and overwhelmed by men, particularly by their spouses.
The spirit of Jezebel doesn’t care to be under spiritual power and will just have connections where it can control individuals. On the off chance that it can’t control individuals, it pulls back from individuals. “Jezebel” signifies, “without “co-habilitation.” at the end of the day, an individual with a Jezebel spirit has an autonomous spirit and doesn’t care to be a piece of a group. The person will frequently pull back from cooperation with different Christians.
– Intimidation: We read how Jezebel scared Elijah and took steps to slaughter him. The day preceding, Elijah was strong to the point that he called down fire from paradise and killed the prophets of Baal. In any case, when Jezebel undermined him, he was so loaded up with dread that he fled into the wild. At the point when we become terrified of spiritual pioneers, it is frequently a sign that they have a spirit of Jezebel. A spiritual head may utilize this expression, “In the event that you leave this congregation you will take a hike.” A spouse with a Jezebel spirit may state to her better half, “On the off chance that you do this, I will separate from you.”
– Pride and pomposity: Jezebel consistently needs to be in the lead position. In Revelations, 2:20we read, that, “She considers herself a prophetess.”People with this spirit regularly prefer to persuade others that they have a service and a calling. They will attempt to advance their service and power themselves into places of power. Therefore they frequently scrutinize different pioneers. A minister with a Jezebel spirit scrutinizes different ministers. This spirit despises authority and attempts to wreck the individuals who have spiritual power.
– Sexual trade-off and debasement: Just a Jezebel utilized sex to oversee the men of Israel, so those with Jezebel spirit, regularly utilize sexual enticement to control and crush individuals. A lady with this spirit will regularly allure wedded men and pulverize their relationships. In Revelations 2:20we read, “Nevertheless I have a couple of things against you, since you permit that lady Jezebel, who considers herself a prophetess, to educate and seduce my servants to submit extramarital perversion… ” They like to gravitate toward spiritual pioneers and utilize their impact to accomplish their own objectives. There are numerous situations where more youthful ladies with this spirit, have utilized sex to obliterate the service and relationships of more seasoned spiritual pioneers.
This is a similar spirit that impacts a large number of movies in Hollywood. In an overview, it was discovered that around 90 percent of sexual connections that appeared in films were between individuals outside of a marriage contract. The way that Jezebel signifies, “without co-habilitation,” implies that the individuals who have this spirit are frequently not ready to remain in a sound marriage relationship.
How we can realize that we are affected by the spirit of Jezebel:
We will take a gander at how this spirit impacted others, particularly in the life of Elijah.
1. Dread: After the triumph that Elijah has on Mount Carmel, he gets a danger from Jezebel and escapes into the wild in dread. The ground-breaking devilish impact of this spirit frequently plants dread in the lives of God’s kids. That is the reason a few Christians fear their spiritual heads, in light of the fact that their pioneers move in a spirit of Jezebel. Individuals with a Jezebel spirit regularly respond brutally when they are gone up against or tested. Subsequently, in the event that we have any sort of dread, with no explanation, it might be an assault of a Jezebel spirit.
2. Misery: 1 Kings 19:4.”But he himself went a day’s adventure into the wild, and came and plunked down under a sweeper tree. Also, he asked that he may pass on … “This has been the experience of numerous spiritual heads. For reasons unknown, they need to surrender the service and even need to kick the bucket. This is regularly on the grounds that they have been assaulted by the spirit of Jezebel. In this way, in the event that we are discouraged for no legitimate explanation, and we start to stress over things that are not significant, it might be an indication that we have been affected by the spirit of Jezebel. Frequently we simply need to surrender even despite the fact that God needs to favor us and use us.
3. Unclean sexual considerations: Revelations 2:20-22.”Nevertheless, I have a couple of things against you, since you permit that lady Jezebel, who considers herself a prophetess, to educate and seduce my servants to submit extramarital perversion and eat things yielded to symbols. Jezebel in the Old Testament was raised in an air where sex was utilized to pick up power and impact individuals. Many, who are dependent on sex entertainment and desire, are frequently affected by this spirit. This spirit entices numerous who were some time ago blessed and utilized by God to burn through a ton of their time before the TV or taking a gander at sex entertainment on the web. A large number of these have lost their blessing and constantly feel denounced and futile and can’t do anything for God.
4. Disengagement: 1 Kings 19:3. “What’s more, when he saw that, he emerged and ran for his life… ” Elijah left from everybody. At the point when we want to pull back from individuals and be alone, it very well may be an assault from this spirit. Indeed, even despite the fact that it is a great idea to pull back from individuals and invest energy with God, these individuals pull back from individuals and invest their time doing useless things, for example, watching motion pictures and perusing magazines throughout the day.
5. Tiredness and weariness: 1 Kings 19:5. “At that point as he lay and dozed under a floor brush tree… ” The minute he escaped from the impact of Jezebel, he rested and dozed. He was clearly exceptionally worn out. In the event that we are constantly worn out and have no vitality to do anything, it tends to be the impact of a Jezebel spirit. Our service ought to reinforce us and restore us and not make us tired. Jesus said in Matthew 11:30, “My burden is simple and My weight is light.” Therefore, in the event that we have issues with rest, it might be an assault on the spirit of Jezebel. In Psalms, 127:2the Bible says, that “God gives His adored rest.” The further we escape from Jezebel, the better we ought to have the option to rest.
6. Weird and constant ailment: Revelations 2:21-22. And I gave her an opportunity to atone for her extramarital perversion, and she didn’t apologize. Without a doubt, I will cast her into a sickbed, and the individuals who submit infidelity with her.” If there is no explanation behind infection and we can’t get well through medication or supplication, it might be an assault from the spirit of Jezebel. Likewise, if the disorder proceeds for quite a while, it might be an assault from this spirit. At the point when we break the impact of this spirit, we regularly get our mending. In Proverbs 18:14we read, “The spirit of a man will support him in affliction.
But who can bear a broken spirit?”
Step by step instructions to break the impact of the spirit of Jezebel
In the Old Testament, God picked Jehu, to pulverize Jezebel and the place of Ahab. He was radical and heartless. He demolished all Ahab’s family and furthermore executed Jezebel. We too should have the spirit of Jehu in the event that we need to have triumphed over this spirit. In Revelations 2:20, Jesus says to this congregation, “You endure that lady Jezebel!” at the end of the day, we should be radical and not endure the spirit at all in our lives!
The accompanying advances can assist us in breaking the impact of the spirit of Jezebel in our lives:
Right off the bat we should apologize and get some distance from the wrongdoings of Jezebel: Revelations 2:21. “I gave her an opportunity to atone her extramarital perversion, and she didn’t apologize.” There are various significant things that we have to atone for on the off chance that we need to be free from the impact of the spirit of Jezebel:
1. The wrongdoings of controlling, controlling, or threatening others.
2. The wrongdoings of pride, haughtiness, and our basic mentalities towards others.
3. The wrongdoings of desire, sex entertainment, and sexual trade-off.
4. The wrongdoings of insubordination, of an autonomous spirit, and absence of accommodation to the spiritual position.
On the off chance that we have pulled back from individuals, we have to get again into cooperation and make a promise to a nearby church. When we have done these things, we would then be able to take authority of the spirit of Jezebel in our very own lives and the direction it to leave. We should have the spirit of Jehu and have nothing to do with Jezebel.
We should not endure the impact of Jezebel in our lives. We may need to sever associations with or go up against the individuals who have a Jezebel spirit. We have to escape from them in the event that we can. A few people may need to discover another congregation if their pioneer is controlling them through this spirit. In the event that our manager at work has this spirit, it is shrewd to secure another position! We have to “slaughter” this spirit, similarly as Jehu, who murdered Jezebel in the Old Testament. (2 Kings 9:22.”So he replied, “What harmony, as long as the harlotries of your mom Jezebel and her black magic are such a significant number of?”)
Thirdly, we should break the control of this spirit: If we have the spirit of Jezebel, we should cast it out. We can do this without anyone else or we can approach others to appeal to God for us. It might be helpful to admit this wrongdoing to other people with the goal that we can be free (James 5:18) If we have been affected by this spirit, we should utilize our spiritual position and break its impact. In James 4:7, it says, “Submit to God, oppose the demon and he will escape from you!”
Finally: There is an extraordinary gift when we are free from this spirit. We will encounter another degree of euphoria and opportunity. We will have more vitality and blessings to take every necessary step of God. May God favor you as you totally demolish the power and impact of Jezebel in your life. amen
