I have ministered to thousands around the world who have struggled with the Jezebel spirit. The Jezebel spirit causes people to behave very controlling, manipulatively, deceiving, and usually sexually selfishly in order to get their own way or in a perverted way. By the time they come to me, most of them truly want help and within an hour they understand how they got the spirit (through deep father wounds and sometimes extreme mother wounds), and then I lead them through powerfully anointed prayers and the spirit leaves them and they feel amazing instantly for the first time in their life.
But about 10-15% of the time, they do not want that familiar spirit to go, and so it will not have to go. For you see, only the person that operates in that spirit has the right to command the spirit to be gone. They have free will and if they desire to keep that spirit, it doesn’t matter what words they speak from a book, the spirit knows they can stay if they do not truly mean it with their entire heart. And then what happens is that they usually get worse in their desire to control their loved ones because now the person has been put on notice and they decided to keep the spirit instead of doing what the Lord wanted them to do.
So what do you do if you are the recipient of dealing with that person? The best thing to do is to give them to God and try to limit your interaction with them as much as humanly possible. If you are married to them, it may mean separating from them in order to actually live and not die. In order to have any peace whatsoever, by separating you will give yourself a well needed reprieve so you can function, and give them a chance to see that the spirit is truly within themselves and that they better deal with it or else they could lose you. If you are a child of a parent that has the spirit, then you will also be able to obtain peace by limiting your interaction with them, but since you will always be their child, there is safety in not being berated verbally all the time in person or over the phone.
If you are a pastor and the Jezebelled person attends your church – how do you deal with them? For it is truly an awkward conversation to say the least. But you simply cannot tolerate Jezebel like Revelation 2:20-23 talks about because the Lord will put Jezebel on a sickbed and literally kill her children that she teaches. I know of a church whose pastor allowed people to operate in the Jezebel spirit and after he was confronted for literally telling his congregation that there was no such thing as the Jezebel spirit, he mocked his confronter and within a year lost his entire church as the Lord shut it down. If you are a pastor who knows people within your church are operating in the spirit of Jezebel, then you must address it and either get them delivered from it or have them leave your church. Many pastors call me and have me deal with their people because of the anointing on my life and the high deliverance rate I am seeing. Some have me come in to their church and speak and then after I share my testimony the Holy Spirit convicts those operating in it and then I lead the entire church through the powerful prayers of deliverance and those that mean it get instantly freed. Their church becomes pure and clean and on fire for God as revival can now really take off. They hear more clearly from the Lord than ever before.
But if a person does not want freed from it, you simply must give them to the Lord and their life will get worse. It is up to them. Many will develop more pains in their bodies that will never get healed, some will get diseases and ultimately they could die an untimely death depending how many people in the church they are trying to influence. It is not a game that people want to play because God will win. One woman from New Zealand had the Jezebel spirit and her family came to confront her. She denied it and took 2 steps to walk away from them….and then died. The Bible talks about choosing life over death – but since the Lord gives us all freewill – it is ultimately up to each of us. If you choose to keep the Jezebel spirit, you will die and you will not reach heaven, no matter how anointed you may be. Your fruit stinks and the Lord knows it. So it is time to be pure, honest and clean.
