THE RISE OF NARCISSISM / SPIRIT OF JEZEBEL IN THE WORLD AND THE CURE

You may have noticed that there are more people than ever before in the world who would be diagnosed as a Narcissist today. One Psychologist suggested as much as 50% of the world now. What does the Psychological community look for as symptoms that would diagnose a person as to being a Narcissist? According to the Mayo Clinic’s website:

Signs and symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder and the severity of symptoms vary. People with the disorder can:

Have an exaggerated sense of self-importance
Have a sense of entitlement and require constant, excessive admiration
Expect to be recognized as superior even without achievements that warrant it
Exaggerate achievements and talents
Be preoccupied with fantasies about success, power, brilliance, beauty or the perfect mate
Believe they are superior and can only associate with equally special people
Monopolize conversations and belittle or look down on people they perceive as inferior
Expect special favors and unquestioning compliance with their expectations
Take advantage of others to get what they want
Have an inability or unwillingness to recognize the needs and feelings of others
Be envious of others and believe others envy them
Behave in an arrogant or haughty manner, coming across as conceited, boastful and pretentious
Insist on having the best of everything — for instance, the best car or office
At the same time, people with narcissistic personality disorder have trouble handling anything they perceive as criticism, and they can:

Become impatient or angry when they don’t receive special treatment
Have significant interpersonal problems and easily feel slighted
React with rage or contempt and try to belittle the other person to make themselves appear superior
Have difficulty regulating emotions and behavior
Experience major problems dealing with stress and adapting to change
Feel depressed and moody because they fall short of perfection
Have secret feelings of insecurity, shame, vulnerability and humiliation

Unfortunately the psychological community states that they do not know what causes people to become Narcissists. In my experience the reasons why people become Narcissists is because they have been hurt deeply by various ways:

One or both parents (or step parents) who treated them with harshness, hurtful words or actions, abuse (always verbal, sometimes physical or sexual) and were usually unloving
Sexual violations when younger (playing doctor, touched by a sibling / neighbor / friend / adult, viewed pornography, molested, raped, addictions to sex)
Verbally, Physically or Sexually abused by anyone multiple times
What is the spiritual root of Narcissism?

When a person gets wounded multiple times growing up, demonic spirits have legal right to speak thoughts to the person in their mind. The thoughts remind them of all the injustices that were done to them so that the person develops an anger, hatred and bitterness in their hearts towards the people who wronged them. Once we start to agree with the thoughts from the demons we give legal right to more thoughts and desires of vengeance which can consume us.

Hebrews 12:14-15 New King James Version (NKJV)

14 Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: 15 looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;

There was a woman in 1 and 2 Kings who lived her life like a modern-day Narcissist. Her name was Queen Jezebel and she was married to King Ahab. She controlled the people of Israel and killed the prophets of the Lord. She was given her authority by marrying King Ahab and was very prideful, controlling, manipulative, lied, seductive, evil and felt she deserved the best of everything. Ahab did more evil in the sight of the Lord because Jezebel stirred him up. Ahab benefited from being married to her by getting things he wanted but would not take the evil steps that she would to make it happen (i.e. she had Naboth killed by lying about him coming against God and the King by 2 scoundrels all because Ahab wanted Naboth’s vineyard but Naboth would not sell it to Ahab so when Ahab told Jezebel about it she took action to have him framed and killed.)

Today people operate in the same demonic evil as Jezebel did because of being wounded in their pasts and then giving access to demons to torment their minds with evil thoughts due to the bitterness and anger that they suffered from growing up. Jezebel came against the true prophets of the Lord and had them killed. People who are operating in the spirit of Jezebel also try to get into their church and become leaders so they can control and shut down God’s true prophets and humble servants. When people who operate with Jezebel get married they take out all their pain and wounds from their past on their spouses. They control, manipulate and demand that their spouse does everything that they want. They are prideful and selfish. Jezebel is also in people who try to control governments, states, cities, towns, schools, health care, churches – wherever there are people. The spirit tries to pervert justice and comes against those who are trying to do what the Lord wants.

What are the symptoms to look for to determine if you are operating in the spirits of Jezebel / Leviathan (Job 41) and Ahab?

These symptoms tend to describe most everyone in the world as we usually see about half the people operating more in Jezebel and the other half more in Ahab. They are accomplices to come against what the Lord wants. We see most marriages where one person operates in the spirit of Jezebel and the other in the spirit of Ahab.

So how do we overcome the spirits of Jezebel / Leviathan and Ahab?

We must ask Jesus to come and speak to us about our past wounds and pains to have him give us a word to heal those injustices and wounds so we can truly forgive them in our hearts. Then we take authority and command the demons that attached to those wounds and tormented our thoughts to go to the pit in Jesus name. We repent for our pride and our sins and as we get right with the Lord then we no longer give the demonic spirits legal rights to torment our thoughts. We can then actually walk every day having the fruit of the spirit instead of the flesh. We can actually become a true Christian in every sense of the word.

Galatians 5:16-26 New King James Version (NKJV)

Walking in the Spirit

16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.

19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

There is hope for the narcissists / spirit of Jezebel affected people and its found in Jesus, forgiveness, humility and true repentance.
