All the False Jezebel Accusations Need to Stop!

by | Sep 24, 2015 | Blogs, The Plumb Line

Jezebel. After decades of battle, this principality remains one of the most popular principalities on the spiritual warfare scene.

No matter where I go, people seem to have “trouble” with Jezebel. Even a nominal Christian I was sitting next to on a plane a few months ago was familiar with this wicked spirit. It seems Jezebel’s fame goes before her. I’ve written a few books dealing with different aspects of Jezebel, including Jezebel’s Puppets: Exposing the Agenda of False Prophets.

The problem is, though, that many discerning Christians don’t know who—or what—Jezebel really is. And this unfortunate misunderstanding is driving far too many false Jezebel accusations, ostracizing and wounding people who are not Jezebels at all. Indeed, labeling someone as a “Jezebel” is one of the most serious allegations you can make against a believer.

Jezebel hides behind the mask of manipulation and control but let’s be clear: Jezebel is not a spirit of manipulation and control. Jezebel is essentially a spirit of seduction that uses manipulation and control as a means to an end. I’ve said this many times, and I’ll keep on saying it because these misguided Jezebel accusations need to stop.

What Is the Spirit of Jezebel?

Again, the spirit of Jezebel is a spirit of seduction. How do I know? Because I’ve read Revelation 2:20. Jesus offered one of the strongest rebukes in the Bible to the church at Thyatria for putting up with this wicked spirit.

“But I have a few things against you: You permit that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat food sacrificed to idols” (Rev. 2:20).

Jezebel clearly seeks to seduce and often works through teaching and prophecy. This spirit seduces the saints into idolatry and immorality. This spirit may use control and manipulation to do it, but ultimately that’s not the end game. In fact, ultimately Jezebel’s end game is murder.

If that’s not alarming enough, consider that all those who commit adultery with Jezebel will end up on a sick bed. Hey, those aren’t my words. Our sweet Jesus said it in Rev. 2:20-23:

“I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, but she did not repent. Look! I will throw her onto a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. I will put her children to death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the hearts and minds. I will give to each one of you according to your deeds.”

Stopping Throwing Jezebel Bombs

I’ve been part of churches where people are labeled Jezebels shortly after they walk in the door. They are marked with a scarlet letter as controllers and manipulators who want to get close to the pastor for power and position. The reality is they may be controllers and manipulators, or they may not be. The real controllers and manipulators are more often, in my experience, the ones slinging the misguided Jezebel accusations.

An abusive church leader once said he saw a Jezebel spirit superimposed over my body and that I was in danger of giving myself over to Jezebel if I didn’t step in line with his wishes. I was certainly alarmed, so I submitted myself to several pastors outside that church for a thorough examination. One of the pastors asked me a startling question:

“Are you sleeping around?”

“No!” I exclaimed, not understanding why he would ask such a thing.

“Are you leading people away from Jesus?”

“Of course, not!” I said.

“Then you aren’t operating in a Jezebel spirit.”

That set me free and helped me see where the true Jezebel was operating.

Remember, Revelation 2:20: “But I have a few things against you: You permit that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat food sacrificed to idols.”

Along with “false prophet,” a Jezebel accusation is one of the most serious fiery darts you can throw at a believer. It implies that they aren’t a believer at all but that they are fornicators who will not inherit the kingdom of God and false brethren who are purposefully leading people away from Christ for their own gain.

So, like the headline of this article reads: All the False Jezebel Accusations Need to Stop! And if you do happen upon a person operating in a Jezebel spirit, why not do what Jesus did and give them a space to repent. In other words, try to help them get free instead of automatically chasing them out the door and letting the real Jezebel’s keep running around the church.
