The Jezebel spirit is something many people have heard of but don’t understand. Author and prophetic evangelist Jennifer Eivaz unpacks this evil entity in her latest podcast series.
“We always look at certain kinds of women … and we presume they have a spirit of Jezebel if they’re a little too strong in their personality, especially their prophetic, or perhaps have a moment of anger or they don’t do things quite right,” Eivaz says on the Take 10 With Jenn podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. “And we like to slap that label ‘Jezebel’ on people like that. And then we basically can wash our hands of them. And I understand that tendency with people, but a lot of times it’s a missed label, or it’s a misunderstanding of that dimension.
Eivaz continues, “Years ago on our staff, we had a moral failure on our pastoral team. It was right when my husband and I stepped into the role of ministry here at Harvest Church. … We were new ministers, new pastors [and] we actually experienced a moral failure on our team.
“And you know, it was devastating. And not only was it devastating, but the circumstances of this affair were very hard to accept. It was just a very sick, disgusting situation. And the reason why—and this is part of it—was there was a woman who orchestrated the adulterous relationship behind the scenes. I mean, she didn’t have the affair, but she helped bring it to pass, and she did it intentionally.
“And what was hard to accept was that this woman appeared very spiritual. And she was prayerful, even prophetic. She would literally know things about you that you never told her, things [she] couldn’t possibly know. … And so she was considered prophetic. And so it was all quite confusing at the time about how somebody could be … prophetic and spiritual and prayerful and then have this whole other sinister thing going.
“Well, I learned after some research that this woman—the one that orchestrated the affair behind the scenes, secretly, stealthily and intentionally—fit the classic definition of a person under the influence of a Jezebel spirit.”
