People who grow up with fathers / mothers / step parents who hurt them by either not being involved in their lives, were overly controlling, all the way to abusive, as well as those who had sexual violations (incest, molested, touched, raped, etc) will begin to hear the enemy giving them thoughts to not trust anyone, control others so you won’t be hurt again, lie if you need to, get angry so you will get your way, which are all based in fear, and they will have a strong prideful spirit. They partner with the spirits of Jezebel (1 & 2 Kings, Revelation 2:18-23)/ Leviathan (Job 41) and are controlled by the thoughts that come to them by the spirits. They look to find marriage partners and others in relationship who have the spirit of Ahab who do not like confrontation, are weak spiritual leaders, allow people to control and manipulate them, and often times are fearful of being rejected.
Most all marriages include one spouse who operates in the spirit of Jezebel to and the other has the spirit of Ahab. Jezebel is the taker and Ahab the giver. Jezebel controls & leads and Ahab gets controlled and follows Jezebel’s lead. Many also deal with the spirit of Leviathan which causes pride, twists communication and understanding of reality, back and neck pain (as it attaches to your spine and twists like an alligator), insomnia, and drowsiness when trying to read the Bible or other Christian books. Most churches have people in leadership operating in all three of these spirits to varying degrees unless they have gone through deliverance. You see a lot of pastors who are Ahab’s who have many Jezebels who run the church. You see some pastors who have Jezebel who control everyone. So what happens when we tolerate these spirits in people? What happens to our families, churches and society?
What happens is the mess we see in our families, churches and society today. Those who have the spirits of Jezebel / Leviathan do the controlling and manipulating of others to get their way and if they don’t get their way they get angry and make your life miserable until you give them what they demand. Thus those with Ahab come to learn that if they stand up against their Jezebel spouse, or others in the church with Jezebel, or in business, then Jezebel will make their lives a living hell. They will control them, lie about them and twist the truth in order to take them out or make them ineffective. The spirits are the main reason why relationships have strife and the number one reason why marriages end up in divorce. It explains why the divorce rate among those who attend church is the same as those who are unbelievers.
The list of characteristics of those who operate in Jezebel / Leviathan and Ahab are below:

So when society tolerates people with the spirit of Jezebel/Leviathan then they take over and try to shut down anything that is Christlike. They take prayer out of our school system and now look at the mess we have with school shootings, abortions, teachers afraid to teach and disrespect. They force the Ten Commandments out of the public courthouses and take down nativity scenes from public. They allow homosexuality to be blatantly open and forced upon us as “normal” and other sexual perverseness to prevail. They try to control the pastors from speaking out against evil and sin and to simply preach nice messages to make everyone feel happy and to tolerate sin while those hearing their messages who are married to spouses with Jezebel are living in misery at home.
So what happens when we no longer tolerate Jezebel/Leviathan and Ahab? Those who get delivered from the spirits (through choosing to truly forgive those who hurt them, repenting for their prideful spirits and then commanding the demons to go) will no longer desire ungodly behavior. Those who had Ahab no longer tolerate sin nor permit those with Jezebel / Leviathan to get their way whenever they get angry. They stand up for purity and righteousness and do not allow people with Jezebel/Leviathan to dominate them anymore. They encourage others to get delivered and to stand up and be a mighty man (or woman) of valor. We see President Trump taking a stand to no longer tolerate these spirits in our political world and society and the media and those in opposition to him literally hate him with such vitriol like we have never seen before.
When the people who have the spirits of Jezebel / Leviathan get delivered then they become an anointed powerhouse for the Lord as they are purified. They can hear the Lord’s voice more clearly than ever before because they no longer hear the demonic voices telling them to do bad things. Families get restored, churches in revival for the Lord and cities and nations changed as their hearts are now purified.
So it starts with you. Take a stand for purity and righteousness. Do not tolerate coming under those spirits in other people ever again. If you have to separate yourself from people who have the spirits of Jezebel / Leviathan then do it. Better that you listen and honor God then to tolerate people with those spirits. Its time to take back our families, churches, cities and nations for God.
