A Jezebel Spirit - Summary

1 Kings16:23-33; 18:4, 13, 19; 19:1-2; 21:8-11; 2 Kings 9:22, 36-37; Revelation 2:20-24

Jezebel spirits appear in the forms of false religions, cults, and false teachings. The primary manifestations of a Jezebel Spirit is deceit, pride, false teaching, manipulation, control, and destruction of God's people. A Jezebel Spirit must contain all of these qualities or it can't truly be classified as a Jezebel Spirit.

On occasion, an individual may not know or realize he is being used by or operating in a Jezebel Spirit. If that is the case, the individual may lack much in the area of discernment and submission to Godly authority.

People operating in a Jezebel Spirit...
...attack God's people thinking they are doing God's will.
...embrace extra-Biblical thinking, practices, and beliefs.
...attempt to detour or override leadership authority.
...are convinced that they are always being persecuted by God's people.
...are very cunning, manipulative, smooth talkers, and skilled at turning people against one another.
...use excess flattery and intimidation.
...are very self-centered.
...insult people around them to help feel better about themself.

A person operating in a Jezebel Spirit practices all 8 of the above points.

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. 1 Corinthians 5:4-5

It’s not our individual duty to spiritually kill Jezebel. The pastor and the deacons of the congregation can confront the person in an appropriate manner without taking matters into our own hands.

Always keep in mind that our war is not with flesh and blood but against Satan and his demons:
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12
