Many people who hear about someone operating in the Jezebel spirit conjure up ideas of a seductive woman dressed scantily, trying to lure a man into a sexual tryst. In reality most people who have the Jezebel spirit operate much more demurely than that, although most all will have a secret sexual side to them that is not healthy, selfish and manipulative. So just what are the signs if a person is operating in that spirit?
People who operate in the spirit of Jezebel will always have many similar characteristics across the board, whether they are a woman or a man. The first that you will notice is that they although they are very demanding and controlling, they will always behave out of an inner fear and anxiety level which stems from not growing up in a unconditional loving home with a father (or mother) which gives them a spirit of insecurity and fear. They must be in control and get there way. They will manipulate you through statements to get you to feel sorry for them or to make you feel indebted to them. Often times it will appear very obvious to you while they think they are being discreet.
The list of characteristics include:
- Fear and anxiety
- Never at peace
- Compulsion to control and manipulate others constantly to get their way
- Outbursts of anger to make sure you are afraid of what they can do
- Master liars and deceivers (Academy Award winning actors and actresses in a bad way)
- Very prideful and arrogant (which the Leviathan spirit which partners with Jezebel exhibits). Feel that others should serve you and give you whatever you want and if they don’t they will become angry until you give in
- Sexual control through either manipulating you to not receive sex unless you do what they want, or they may want sex all the time but in a perverse way
- No peace no matter what you do to give in to their demanding ways
- Will try to shut you down if you are in ministry
- Try to gain friendship with people of influence and power, especially in the church and ministries, so they can control other people and ultimately cause confusion and obstruct true freedom in the Lord and deliverance from the enemy
- Will buy your friendship through gift giving so you will feel obligated to them so they can operate their control over you
- If you are married to them you will notice that their face will contort into a fierce look if you dare say no to their demands. That is how the demon of Jezebel manifests is to intimidate you into getting what they want
- Living a double life as they appear loving, kind and generous to the public and in front of the church, while then behaving very evil behind closed doors out of the eye of those in church or ministries
- Often times in a church setting, will try to put their hands on you as they know they can control and manipulate you if they touch you in a way that will draw you into them and giving them what they want. Will often try to pray for you and put their hands on you as they can seduce you subtly that way
- They are wearing a fake smile all the time, as inside they are always scheming to get their own way at the expense of others
- If you are not a person of influence or power in your church or ministry or at work, then they will have no time for you as you cannot help them accomplish what they want. They treat those of insignificance with disdain and will not spend time with them because they of no benefit to them
Every church and ministry has people who operate in Jezebel. The more anointed the ministry is (especially if the prophetic gifting flows frequently) the more that people with the Jezebel spirit will draw to them. And if the ministry never addresses people with the Jezebel spirit, then they will continue to operate and cause confusion, stop true deliverance, and ultimately will cause a split in the church or ministry. Therefore it must be addressed and not tolerated (just like it states in Revelation 2:20-23)
“20 Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. 21 And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. 22 Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. 23 I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works.”
I have seen thousands of people who operate in the Jezebel spirit to be delivered and set free. Then they finally become who they are in Christ, as they can hear the voice of the Holy Spirit clearly instead of being distorted by the enemy. They also will usually get healed from physical infirmities like back pain (which is usually the Leviathan spirit that causes that), neck pain, and could even have Fibromylagia, cancer and other maladies because once the spirit is gone and has no right to them, then they can be healed.
So it is time to become pure and righteous in the Lord. No longer operating covertly and secretly in evil. It is time to admit the truth, humble yourself, and become restored to freedom today. Then you will experience the fullness of all that the Lord has called you to operate in.
