How Much Would You Pay for 1 of Jezebel’s False Prophecies?

by | Jan 7, 2016 | Blogs, The Plumb Line

Jezebel calls herself a prophetess but is anything but. In fact, the spirit of Jezebel is a false prophetic spirit that works in divination and smooth sayings to seduce God’s people to commit immorality and worship idols (Rev. 2:20).

Far beyond control and manipulation, the spirit of Jezebel works over time to muzzle—or kill—prophetic voices. If Jezebel’s witchcrafts against your mind don’t intimidate you, this principality works to pervert the prophetic voice through compromise. 

Of course, the Jezebel spirit also works through false prophets—those who set out to deceive—to wring money out of your pocket with sensational prophecies that tap into the idolatry in your heart or fearful prophecies that manipulate the soul.

Why do so many people give so freely to so many of Jezebel’s prophets? Why are some Christians supporting Jezebel’s false prophets instead of sowing into the true kingdom of God? Selah.

3 Sources of Prophecy

Prophecy comes from one of three sources: the human spirit, a demonic spirit or the Holy Spirit. Our human spirits have plenty of edification, exhortation and comfort to offer, but that doesn’t make our utterances God-breathed prophetic words. On the flip side, demonic spirits are prophesying to many in the body of Christ through diviners. I’m not talking about the fortune tellers with the tarot cards and crystal balls in those creepy little shops of horrors. I’m talking about those who prophesy in the name of the Lord (Matt. 7:22).

From the Old Testament to the New, God has a strong rebuke for what we call the spirit of Jezebel and those operating in it. Jehovah had something against Queen Jezebel. (You can read Jezebel’s story in 2 Kings.) Likewise, Jesus had something against the church at Thyatira, who tolerated that women Jezebel (Rev. 2:20). 

Both Jezebels led God’s chosen ones to celebrate sexual sin and worship idols—and the fate of both is clearly described in the Bible. The Old Testament Jezebel was thrown down from her lofty position and eaten by dogs, and Jesus said He would cast the Revelation 2 Jezebel into a bed of suffering—along with her followers—if there was no repentance.

Seeing the fate of Jezebel, why would anyone want to eat at her table? I understand what’s in it for false prophets—plenty of payment. Queen Jezebel had hundreds of prophets on her payroll, and they ate at her table (1 Kin. 18:19). I understand how eunuchs fall into Jezebel’s trap. It get why Ahabs tolerate Jezebels and how some rise up as Jezebel’s children. I talk all about this in my brand-new book, Jezebel’s Puppets.

But I still don’t understand why Christians would pay for a prophetic word from one of Jezebel’s false prophets. Jezebel never uttered a Holy Spirit-inspired prophetic word in her life, but rather she preys on the hurts, wounds, wants and needs of the soul with divination. The only answer I can come up with is that believers are desperate to hear for supernatural direction—so desperate that they will listen to any voice that says it is of God.

Why We Fall for Jezebel’s Divination

Before I got saved, I used to go to Tarot card readers, palm readers, crystal readers—and even call divination hotlines looking for direction for my life. I was going through major trials and I didn’t know which way was up—and I didn’t know the Lord. I was desperate.

Many believers are just as desperate. Although Jesus clearly said that “My sheep know My voice and the voice of another they will not follow” (John 10:27), I’ve discovered that many believers can clearly hear the voice of the devil telling them to sin, condemning them after they do and otherwise selling them a pack of lies. Many have not been taught that they can hear the voice of God—or trained how to discern and identify the many ways He speaks.

True five-fold prophets equip the saints for the work of the ministry. They not only declare what God has said and is saying and teach believers how to apply the rhema words they release—they school believers on testing the spirits and inclining their ear to the Lord. Jezebel-inspired prophets profit from this lack of training by making people dependent on them for a word from the Lord rather than pointing them to the One who freely shares words of life.

You can hear from God for yourself. True prophets can confirm what the Lord is saying to you or reveal something new to your heart, but don’t be fooled by Jezebel and her witchcrafts (2 Kin. 9:22). Don’t fall into the pay-to-pray trap. Don’t buy into the Internet diviner’s thievery. Read a book, take an equipping class or just go hard after God, and you will find the direction you need for your life.
