Jezebel on Display
Yesterday was “Get Even Day”...a day for the Left to vent vile hatred of a man - and his supporters - who thwarted their agenda for the last four years. In today’s post, I could talk about the blatant hypocrisy of the Left, of Congressional Democrats, and the weak, politicized Republicans who have suddenly “awakened” to the evil of violent protests, but that is so obvious there really is no need. I could elaborate on the fact that any honest person could listen to the speeches at last Wednesday’s rallies in Washington. D.C., and realize there was no call for violence, that the rhetoric of the Left over the last four years makes anything said that day sound like a lovefest. No one wore a pink hat and spoke of blowing up the White House, no one shrieked about chasing Democrats or Biden supporters out of restaurants or told Trump supporters to chant in front of liberals’ homes or threaten Senators and their wives as they left events at the White House. But that would be a waste of time because most honest Americans know this.
A much better use of time would be to point out the spiritual forces and motivation behind what occurred yesterday. One of the lesser considered benefits of Trump’s presidency has been the exposure of the swamp. We now realize it is far deeper, muckier and smelly than we realized. Yesterday, the veil was pulled back even more and the vile, hateful and vengeful spirit of the swamp spirits manifested fully. They speak of love and peace but their fangs were on full display yesterday.
One of the spirits leading this group is the spirit of Jezebel. This spirit is clearly seen in Scripture as a hater of God and a worshiper of Baal. It is immoral, seductive, controlling, and vicious. If Jezebel is not in full control, it will do everything possible to destroy those standing in its way. In Scripture, this spirit motivated the woman, Jezebel, to literally kill the prophets of Yahweh and promote the prophets of Baal (a demon who, among other things, loved child sacrifice). It is a vicious spirit.
One of the evils carried out by this spirit through the woman Jezebel was the killing of Naboth. Jezebel’s husband, Ahab, wanted a vineyard belonging to Naboth. Naboth would not sell the Vineyard to Ahab, stating as his reason, “The Lord forbid me that I should give you the inheritance of my fathers,” (1 Kings 21:3). Jezebel had him murdered, took the land, and presented it to Ahab. God was furious with this act and sent the prophet Elijah to prophesy Ahab’s and Jezebel’s destruction.
The parallel to today is striking. Jezebel has determined to take from America the inheritance of our fathers. She will do anything to succeed in this. Seduction, immorality, child sacrifice, murder - anything and everything is an option. A weak church in America has enabled this. God rebuked the church at Thyatira in Revelation 2:20 for tolerating the spirit Jezebel. The Greek word translated “tolerate” does not mean “partner with” or even to “excuse the activities of.” It means “to leave alone.”
This is exactly what the church in America has done: Put her head in the sand and act like the evil does not exist. “Leave it alone” and hope it goes away. Many have done this in our elections - stay out of politics, leave it alone. And it is certainly what many have done in this current spiritual battle over the elections - leave it alone. Sadly, for some, it is worse than that. They would rather allow a Jezebel spirit to operate and rule this nation than for God to use a person with an immoral past, but whom God is now using in an incredible way. They are completely blinded by a religious spirit.
As I said, Jezebel must have control, therefore, anyone who opposes this spirit must be removed. And that is what has been attempted for the past four years. President Trump has been used - probably unknowingly - by Yahweh to stop the momentum of this spirit trying to take from us our fathers’ inheritance in America. By strengthening the church, aligning with Israel, fighting globalism, stopping Isis, fighting for the unborn, and more, God has been using him to oppose this spirit’s takeover. And Jezebel is furious. She was on full display yesterday.
However, Jezebel‘s fate is sealed. Just as surely as the woman in Scripture was destroyed, this spirit’s attempt to steal from America that which our fathers gave us will be destroyed. Her immorality, hatred of God, exalting of false gods, and slaughter of our children will end. The spirit of Elijah, Elisha, and Jehu is in the land. It is found in the Ekklesia, the church of Jesus Christ, and is being manifested by an apostolic and prophetic company of determined followers of Yeshua. And God will use them to rid our nation of this spirit, and see a righteous government raised up in our land.
Yesterday did nothing to change that.
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Read the story of Naboth in 1 Kings 21.
Ask God to show you the various ways where the spirit of Jezebel has infiltrated and ruled America.
Ask Him to forgive us, the church, for tolerating this spirit.
Decree boldly that the evil this spirit has released in our government will be exposed and removed.
Ask God to show you how to pray for our President and other righteous leaders in America as they rise up against this spirit.
Pray for leaders in the church that they will make a stand.
A prayer you can pray:
Father, forgive the American church for tolerating the spirit of Jezebel. Our passivity and complacency - leaving this spirit alone - has allowed it to be entrenched in our land. She is now determined to be in complete control. But this spirit is powerless against the blood of Jesus. And we are determined to see it removed from our nation.
Bring a great awakening to the church. One that awakens us from our slumber, denial, and compromise. Give us hearts that will challenge this spirit and say “no toleration” - we will not leave you alone. No detente. No cease-fire. No shared control. Cause Your prophets to speak with boldness and Your apostles to rise up in authority.
And Lord, we pray for our President. In the midst of this unwarranted political fiasco, give him much grace. Use this to humble him in an appropriate way, and look to You for his salvation and deliverance. You have called him and You can sustain him. We ask You to transform him into a God-loving, covenant-keeping, warrior for You. And finish with him what You started.
And Lord, we affirm our faith in You and Your plans for America. You will deliver us from evil, You will restore us fully to the destiny for which You created us, and America will accomplish everything You have determined for us to do in the coming revival and great harvest.
The spirit of Jezebel will not control America. We are being saved!
