Jezebel Spirit In The Bible

For those of you who don't believe in a Jezebel spirit, what about this scripture? Revelation 2 "I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols."

//She is dead.//

Luk 16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also [like Lazarus] died, and was buried, Luk 16:23 And in hell [unlike Lazarus] he lift up his eyes and sees Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

Mar 9:2 [Jesus] was transfigured before them [Peter, James, and John]...
Mar 9:4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Jesus.

So, Lazarus, the rich man, Elias, and Moses (all dead) have a fact, everybody has a spirit, dead or alive...but, Jezebel is the only one in history who is not permitted to have one.
---aka on 12/24/10

Thank you MarkV, that is exactly what I was trying to say.
And for the record I am not Kathr but we certainly share the same views on scripture.

aka, Jesus never said Lazurus spirit come forth. He said Lazurus come forth.
Jesus did not call it a spirit at all.
These things are the spirit of the anti-christ. Jezebel in both stories was under the influence of the spirit of the anti-christ. So the spirit is of the anti-christ not the spirit of jezebel. She is dead.
---ginger on 12/7/10

I do not understand what Kathr is saying because I am not responding to her here. Is Ginger kathr? I wouldn't surprise me but Ginger has more patience so far. I understand very much what she is saying. She doesn't want to use the name Jezebels spirit because it does not mention that in Scripture. What we are saying is the Jezebels spirit is the anti-Christ. And is the spirit in all who are speak and are against Christ. That was all. It was not to change someones opinion. It was in response to what was said. Nothing more. I can accept what she said. And so I ask, why do they have names, and what difference does it make? All are the same.
---Mark_V. on 12/4/10

AKA ... It seems to me that it is Mark who does not understand what Kathr is saying.

Let's put it in a secular context.

If I suffer a severe illness, we would say the "Alan is suffering from (say) polio" We would not call the illness "Alan"

If someone else suffered the ilness, we would say "X has ploio, same as Alan"

What Kathr is saying here (I think, 'cos she does make it complicated) is "Jezebel suffered from an evil spirit. That does not mean the evil spirit was named Jezebel"
---alan8566_of_UK on 12/3/10

I do not think that you are really understanding MarkV's posts, and he is trying to clarify and you are taking it as an argument.

//Why do you keep trying to say that I said ... when I never said that at all?//

You did it to me...what is a man to do?

//It is the spirit of anti-christ..just like you said. So call it that and not give a dead woman too much credit//

Every bad spirit is from the spirit of antichrist.

What you are saying is that if a spirit has a name in the Bible., then, it has a name... like Lazarus or Beezlebub. But, if not specifically named it is a work of the flesh like the dead rich man or the legion of devils that enter the pigs. Interesting.
---aka on 12/3/10

MarkV, Now you are taking me agreeing with you as an arguement..really?

We who are in Christ have the discernment of him to know what an evil spirit is. We also have the Bible to explain it to us.
Why do you keep trying to say that I said God doesn't know when I never said that at all? God certainly knows who and what they are and he told us through his word. I never said you cast out evil spirits. But then what is rebuking one? If you say that Jezebel had the spirit of the anti christ, then why not call those who are like her the same thing?
The Bible is very clear on this issue. There is no jezebel spirit. It is the spirit of anti-christ..just like you said. So call it that and not give a dead woman too much credit.
---ginger on 12/3/10

Ginger, one thing I do not do and that is, I do not go around casting out evil spirits. I really have nothing to do with them. I do not call any of them by name either. That is all conjured up by many today. Why not call it what it is, spirit of the anti-Christ. Why do they have to have a name? That is just silly. Anyone who opposes God is an anti-Christ. You said they have a name, what happens if you got the wrong name? God will not know? When we pray, God is doing the Work against evil that is against us. So I ask, do you not think God knows who it is? And if we have it wrong, He won't help?
Jezebel's spirit was the anti-Christ.
---Mark_V. on 12/2/10

//According to scripture there is no spirit named jezebel. // ginger

By sheer repetition of the same point using different words, you win.

Now, please answer these questions...

1.) Did the bible actually say Berean Jews and

2.) Did Paul call them "works of the flesh" or "spirits of the flesh" in Gal 5?

Even though I anticipate you will answer in the spirit of a Berean, i hope you answer in the spirit of a Jew in Berea.
---aka on 12/2/10

MarkV, Again, I agree with you.
My point has always been why call them a jezebel sirit when that is not the name of the spirit? there is no such thing as a jezebel spirit.
How can you cast out an evil spirit if you do not call it what it is?
You can't. So why not just call it the spirit of the anti-christ, or the spirit of rebellion, etc. Why do people always have to complicate things.
And like leej said earlier, people now use it to degrade women. Or when a woman is in disagreeance with her husband.
---ginger on 12/2/10

Revelation 2 thou sufferest that woman Jezebel,.. and to eat things sacrificed unto idols."
1 Kings 16:31 And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him.

Jezebel was from SIDON / ZIDON she caused Gods people to worship the SUN ( Baal) and EASTER. her marriage to Hebrew kings gave us easter, and christmas. which the bible calls "commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols."

1 Kings 11:5 For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians
---francis on 12/2/10

Ginger, when they say "Jezebel's spirit" they are not speaking of one spirit called Jezebel. Jezebels spirit was the anti-Christ. Every evil spirit out there is the spirit of the anti-Christ for it is oppose to Christ. I don't know how much more I can explain it to you.
"The spirit of the anti-Christ is the spirit of error" 1 John 4:6.
"The spirit of the anti-Christ is already in the world" 1 John 4:3.
"To overcome these anti-Christ, Christians must abide in the doctrine of Christ" 2 John 9.
There are many as scripture declares controlling people as with Jezebel.
---Mark_V. on 12/2/10

One thing I notice about Jezebel is that the Lord gave her space to repent and she did not.
The word says because sentence against a matter does not come immediately it is in the heart of man to do evil.
While the Lord waits some may think evil is not being avenged or stopped but it is the Lord allowing people to bring themselves to destruction.
When he finally passes judgment it is too late and the person is without excuse.
---Frank on 12/1/10

aka, doesn't the Bibble say to study and show yourself approved rightly dividing God's word? yes it does.
What did the Bereans do? They studied the word of God and showed themselves approved rightly dividing God's word. They searched scripture for the truth. And so should we. They did not take Paul at his word. They measured what he said up to scripture.

According to scripture there is no spirit named jezebel. There are spirits called rebellion, heresies, anti-christ, pride, adultery, but no spirit of jezebel...NO WHERE.
Scripture has spoken loudly on this. In fact I believe Kath has very rightly divided God's word on what jezebel is.
---ginger on 12/2/10

ginger, no scripture I found said Berean Jew. There were Jews in Berea. There were also non-Jews in Berea. So, "to study like a Berean" is not biblical and may be hazardous. Berean Jew was added by you from the different texts that I read.

In Gal, Paul calls them 'works of the flesh not 'spirits of the flesh.'

You have rebuked someone for bearing false witness against you, yet you said that I keep calling these spirits (pl) Jezebel. I never said that.

MarkV, very good posts.
---aka on 12/1/10

Concerning this particular post.
---anon on 11/30/10

Where did I say anything you posted? Why are you bearing false witness?
And why are you on here trying to stir up strife if you are a Christian?
Anon, you have the spirit of pride and iching ears and the Bible certainly DOES speak about these spirits. So in the name of Jesus I rebuke it and your lie.
I did not say a woman cn't be prideful, etc. I said the name of the spirit is NOT Jezebel. It is pride, rebellion, and heresies!
No where in the Bible is a spirit named Jezebel. It is a false doctrine that man has made up.
---ginger on 12/1/10

Yes, MarkV, that is true they connect her with the anti-christ and that is true. But the evil spirit that was over Jezebel was not called the Jezebel spirit and it is still not called that.
It is rebellion, and heresies but certainly not a spirit named jezebel.
That is what I am speaking about.
---ginger on 11/30/10

Ginger, my point been that false teachers, those who speak against the gospel of Christ are moved by the spirit of the anti-Christ. For any spirit not of God is anti God. The bringing of up of Jezebel in Revelation, was to connect people reading this book to Jezebel a false prophetess who influenced the church in the way Jezebel influenced the O.T, Jews into idolatry and immorality (1 Kin. 21:25,26).
So when people speak about that spirit, they are connecting Jezebel works against the gospel and are reminded by John in Rev. 2:20.

Hey everyone, did you hear that God gave ginger EVERY single revelation there is to know in the bible? That the Holy Spirit only reveals things to her and not the rest of us? "Let Him who has ears, HEAR what the Spirit of God is saying." NOT EVERYONE KNOWS ALL THINGS, i.e., ginger. Just by your arguing this out shows you probably have a jezebel's a control and manipulation demon.
---anon on 11/30/10

aka, you wanted scripture..
Acts 17
"11 Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. 12 As a result, many of them believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek women and many Greek men. "

We are to examine to see if it be truth. Scripture does not speak of a jezebel spirit. It does speak of a person who is following after her flesh on both accounts. So we are not to be like her. We are to follow after Christ. The spirits that you keep calling jezebel are not called by that name. Galatians 5 tells what they are. Its rebellion not jezebel.

MarkV, just wanted to say I totally agree with your post.
The spirit that moved Jezebel in the Bible, the first time was rebellion.
The one in Revelations, was the spirit of the anti-christ.
So, no jezebel spirit here. Let's call these spirits what they truly are.
---ginger on 11/30/10

Darline, I completely agree with you in your explanation about how it is not always evil coming from the enemy but that evil is within us. But in the case of Rev. 2:20 it was a false teachers in the same way as Jezebel. The churches mentioned in Revelation represent churches that existed at some time, but also represent churches today. And that same spirit which moved Jezebel in her story is connected to this passages. Though spirit is not mentioned but the acts of anyone who goes against the gospel are considered the spirit of the anti-Christ in 1 John 4:3. Jezebel's spirit was the spirit of the anti-Christ that move her to do what she did.
---Mark_V. on 11/30/10

ginger, funny, my last post was not directed at anyone specifically, but you spoke.

"need to be like bereans." Scripture please. The Holy Spirit in 1Jn 4:1 says, "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world."

There is a reason that Jesus named Jezebel in Rev. You said yourself Jezebel represents a church. Every church system has a spirit.

people keep pounding the pulpit on each side, and calling it 'rightly dividing'.

//Again, you need to check out Galatians 5.//

All works of the flesh are overcome by the Spirit also listed in Gal 5. You always point out the lusts but never the fruit.
---aka on 11/29/10

---aka on 11/26/10

No one is denying that there is a spiritual realm, aka. No one is being hypocritical either, just rightly dividing God's word. And God,s word does not even mention a spirit named Jezebel so there is not a spirit named Jezebel.
Again, you need to check out Galatians 5.
We should all be like the bereans and check the scriptures to see if something is truth. and again, no Jezebel spirit.
But there is the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and the pride of life. There is anger, jealousies, enies, heresies, pride, etc...

ironically, the same heavy handed (and hypocritical) tactics that people use to try to control people by manipulating the term "jezebel spirit" to control rebellion in the church are being employed to argue against it.

to deny that there is not a spiritual realm that interacts with humans is anti-scriptural and borders on the spiritual adultery that Jesus speaks of in Rev.

Donna5535 on 11/23/10

Excuse me but the Holy Spirit has revealed it to me. And no where in the bible is there a SPIRIT named Jezebel. So who really needs to take it up with God? you. I go by what the word says not man's interpretation of it. Jezebel is a woman who is head of a disobedient church, not an evil spirit.
If you want the names of the spirits that cause people to sin, read Galatians 5. I am also assuming you have never studied the fruits of the flesh, either or that God tells us that the sins of this woman come from the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life.
So, who needs to study this particular issue?....the ones who keep claiming that there is a jezebel spirit causing women to be apostate.
---ginger on 11/26/10

aka, I can agree with that. It's just that If your definition of Jezebel is symbolic of your verses, then NO WAY can one be lurking around someone's house.

The Woman Jezebel is referenced to the WOMAN who rides the beast. APOSTATE christianity, those who will be thrown into the great tribulation and judged and destroyed unless they repent.

So donna, you say it was Just her. Boy she must really get around. She seems to have been in a lot of people's houses. Being spirits are not as God, everywhere at one time, I wonder where she went.

Why didn't you cast her out into a pig or something. That's what Jesus did. Then she wouldn't be around bothering anyone.

I do find it interesting she was in your home and not in you. I don't see any incidences in scripture of spirits just lurking, but were aways in people.

i am not supporting man's traditional abuse of Jezebel. ADD/ADHD is a real disorder that was abused to control a generation of children and build the profits of the pharmaceuticals.

The Salem witch trials were used to control church goings-on. But, does that mean there is no witchcraft in churches everywhere? No. I dated a girl that attended church regularly. When I went to her church, I felt strange, and I would weep without control. I found out later that she regularly practiced white magic.

ginger, I would strongly urge you to go to GOD with your argument. "Let him who has ears HEAR what the Spirit of God is saying."

Unless the Holy Spirit reveals this to you about a jezebel spirit, you will not be able to see or understand it.

I was saved 27 years before the Holy Spirit revealed to me that "she has a jezebel spirit." For years I thought it was her controlling and manipulating personality and it was "just her." But I believe the Holy Spirit warned me because she was in my house and I haven't let her in my house since.

ginger, argue this out with God, not us because UNLESS THE HOLY SPIRIT reveals something to YOU YOURSELF, you will not be able to see it.

Yeah, this is true but there is no spirit named "Jezebel". Women named that but no spirit.
And nobody is denying that the spirit of rebellion can be in a church. But see that is the spirit's name...REBELLION.
It is a fruit of the flesh. Again, you are not taking into account the works..spirits ...of the flesh described in Galatians 5. We are given the names of the spirits, yet you continue to deny them to hang on to man made traditions.

See what I mean? People will say anything to deny Jezebel.

Anyway, by my estimation the church of Jezebel along with its spirit has already arrived most prominently manifested in the middle of the 19th Century. Any church that is not in the body is committing spiritual adultery which is what said that men would do.

I agree aka, you cannot remove the spirit until you remove what is attracting the spirit.
The spirit's root is one of the acts of the flesh described in Galatians 5. But there is no jezebel spirit. The bible mentions spirits but not that particuler one.
Jezebel mentioned in Revelations is a woman who is head of an apostate church that is soaked with the acts of the flesh described in Galatians 5.

Also notice when the many spirits in side one person said they are legion BECAUSE they are many.
Now one spirit may envy, or anger, or malice, etc.
The point is that these are the names of these spirits and they are conjured up by we humans being weak instead of strong. By us NOT putting down the lust of the flesh, lusts of the eyes and the pride of life.
---ginger on 11/20/10

Aka,wih due respect to you and your opinions I must say it isn't always Satan or a demon in operation when a perason acts evil. There's a saying the "Devil made me do it",no he didn't. The Bible says we are tempted when led astray by our own lusts and we know lust is a part of the fleshly nature,the old man. Sometimes people act evil simply because its flesh,their own behavior uncontroled and uncleansed. There are some pretty terrible acting people who frankly have a rotten personility which they never try to control. Even some Christians fall back on this terrible behavior sometimes which just shouldn't be.
---Darlene_1 on 11/20/10

[Jesus] asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.

Eph 6:12 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.

The Spirit can only reveal to each of us what the Spirit can reveal.

It does not matter if we call it anger or the spirit of anger, the root is in the Evil one and he has a Legion of angels that go where they are allowed.

She answered my question,thanks Donna. I had an experience with my Aunt which reminds me of that. Dad had to handle their Mothers estate when she died and she called him a thief for stealing part of the money,he hadn't,he paid his Mothers bills. I called her a liar,she was ranting,in public,and I said I rebuke you in Jesus name,She replied you know what it is don't you.

Actually Donna5535, She is guilty of the flesh. Pretty simple. Check out Galatians 5.
It is there. She was guilty of anger.
One of the symptoms of the pride of life.
That is the spirit she is guilty of an that is its real name. ANGER. These spirits have names of course. But not people's names.
They are jealousy, anger, malice, lust, etc.
People like to give them names but they don't realize if you don't call it by its real name it will not leave and you cannot rebuke it without it's name and in the name of Jesus(his power).
Jezebel was guilty of the lusts of the flesh, list of the eyes and the pride of life. The Holy Spirit should have shown you that and not some denominational mess.

Darlene 1, if the Holy Spirit hadn't showed me and said to me last year when my friends face contorted, the pupils of her eyes dialated, and she put her face up to mine and in a very viscous tone of voice, she asked, "sooo did you change the locks on your door this time? where's my key?" We had a disagreement and hadn't spoken for a year. She was very angry with me. I did change the locks and she got very angry for not giving her a's control and manipulation.

It was ONLY THEN that the Holy Spirit said, "She has a jezebel spirit." In non-biblical terms, it's called a covert-aggressive personality, but you know how doctors like to put labels on things and call it a disease and they don't call a demon, a demon.

You see I'm not against discernment but that so many things have become popular labels or paractices due to hearing it said by some preachers or churches. A lot of those things aren't spelled out in specific Bible verses but originated from what people thought. The name Jezebel has been applied to impudent,shameless,immoral,golddiggers,tramp women by secular sources hundreds of years,but not as a spirit.

So I told my mother that and she still, to this day, doesn't believe that she was condemming the Holy Spirit...she still thinks it was me but HE told me she was condemming Him.

Since you're convinced what you say is right Iggie, far be it for me to try & convince you otherwise. Rev. 2, in context to the whole of Scripture, speaks for itself. Your skewed interpretation (fairy tale) of what I said makes it plain you don't understand the Spirit & intent of what Jesus "is saying" to the Thyatira "type" Church.

You believe Jesus was talking about a specific woman, rather than a type of woman, named Jezebel in the Thyatira Church. With that view, no wonder you've missed the point.

It wasn't until a year ago that the Lord opened my eyes and ears to hear and see a jezebel spirit rise up in a friend of mine and boy was I SHOCKED to say the least. After she left, I sought the Lord all night. I asked, I prayed, I fasted and the Lord showed me that, "To him who has ears, let him hear what the Spirit is saying." So unless the Holy Spirit reveals something to you in this area, I wouldn't deny this demons existence because that's satans biggest trap is to get people to believe he and demons don't exist.

Ignatius--- So true. The so-called "Jezebel spirit" does not exist. It's a convenient spiritual-sounding moniker that Christian men use to describe a strong willed "rebellious" woman. In the world such women are called by another much shorter name.

Iggie: Don't be so sanctimoniously stuck up & think you speak for all Christians in this matter. The only & final authority in this, & all other matters, is Scripture. Whether or not you choose to believe Scripture is your choice. But, don't think for a moment you can nullify what the Bible says with your pompous naysaying.

"....a certain type of woman dominating "EVIL SPIRIT" that has gotten into the Church-house (NOT THE CHURCH), i.e., heady, high-minded, insubordinate, usurping/taking (by force of personality) God-given male authority, a rebellious spirit of witchcraft." (Leon)

All this is highly speculative. There is no such thing as a Jezebel Spirit. It is man made, based on ripping a scriptura text out of context. It is a myth promoted by the niave and hyper spiriturists.

There is no clear support in Scriptures or the writings of the Fathers. Thus, it is not even worth labeling it as a "pious opinion".

There are two infamous women in the Bible, both "called" Jezebel. Was the woman in Rev. 2:20 really given the name Jezebel at birth or was Jesus just identifying her as THE SAME TYPE of wicked woman as the ungodly queen actually named Jezebel? I think the latter & as such it does indicate (show) a certain type of woman dominating "EVIL SPIRIT" that has gotten into the Church-house (NOT THE CHURCH), i.e., heady, high-minded, insubordinate, usurping/taking (by force of personality) God-given male authority, a rebellious spirit of witchcraft.

Yes Donna, the JEZEBEL SPIRIT is very real in matters of the backsliden Church of today & Rev. 2:20 gives a future glimpse, rebuke & warning against the type.

Darlene, thank you for your love and compassion towards me. I love and respect you tremendously.

My question to you would be: How does one learn about demons? About Spiritual Warfare? Certainly there's no explanations as to what demons control who, right? Except when Jesus asked, "what is your name?" And they answered and said, "Legion, for we are many."

Isn't it the Holy Spirit who reveals truth to us just like He did to Peter.

The Holy Spirit can reveal DEEP things to us especially if we have the gift of discerning of spirits .ONLY THE HOLY SPIRIT Can teach us such deep spiritual truths, amen? I Love you Darlene, please know that, okay?

Amen Iginatius!

It is man made.

"Spirit Of << something >>" doesn't always make sense.

GOD has given EACH person certain "gifts" for the purpose of building up HIS Kingdom on Earth.

However, these "gifts" can also be mis-used for the WRONG reasons. Jezebel was one example. Others might be: Televangelists, False Prophets and/or selling GOD's word in exchange for $$$, etc.

I tried going to a new charasmatic church. There was NO Men's minstry at all. I suggested starting a prayer group. That is when the Pastor told me that I had a "spirit of Absalom" and I had better not. OK, OK, I didn't, and left that church. Still not sure how starting a prayer group is a "spirit of Absalom".

Any comments?

The Scripture you posted DOES NOT say "Jezebel Spirit". There is no such thing. It is a mad made ideology, believe by the naive and hyper spiritualists.

Amen Cluny and Bruce.
---ginger on 11/16/10

As I've said before, belief in a "Jezebel spirit" is a fundagelicostal superstition, as groundless as believing black cats are bad luck, or in incubi and succubi, or that witches fly through the air on broomsticks, or in undead vampires.

Rev 2:18-25 speaks of a specific woman (Jezebel) in a specific church (Thyatira).
---Bruce5656 on 11/16/10

Donna5535,there was a Jezebel who had some very wicked ways but I haven't seen any Bible verse which says all people who have those same traits or some of them get a Jezebel Spirit. If you can show me the Bible verse which says this I am more than happy to receive and believe it. There are many sayings which have been thrown into Christianity which have come only from man not God. It is so easy to take something which sounds good or resonable and believe it but it is a snare which leads our minds to things which aren't Biblical therefore it steals away precious time we could spend in the whole Word of God,learning his truth. You know I respect and care about you so please accept this in the Christian love in which I give it. God Bless
