Notwithstanding 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.
BEWARE OF THE JEZEBEL!
presented by Rev Dr David P Griffiths PhD DD with additional information from the revelation God gave Rev Dr Suresh Ramachandran over these matters(Rev. Dr. Suresh Ramachandran is Principal of Mount Carmel Theological College,Sri Lanka and was a College Student with Rev. Dr. D.G.)
Ephesians 5:10-12 (King James Version)
Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.
How does Jezebel infiltrate families and Church families ?
1) Rev. 2:20 Teaches and Seduces to Commit Fornication
Notwithstanding 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.
The sexual side is always there with Jezebel. They use it as a form of control over their male "Ahabs" making them perform immoral acts and through their controlling hypnotic spirit bring them to support sexual freedom in society.
Others are brought into the equation by gaining support for these immoral activities through their use of respected liberality, a concept rife in society today. Jezebels flourish in societies where there "is no living in sin" - only living with a partner!
Jezebel Comes in therefore = WHERE SIN ABOUNDS!
Today's society is often dominated by the Renaissance thinking of Florence, that it intellectualism and philosophy. The traditional Church will allow conviction of sin to take place but the Jezebel influenced operations we have in Britain today would treat such a conviction as an offence.
This means that Holy Ghost anointed Preachers are not allowed into pulpits anymore in fear that they may offend the congregation. The Prophet of God in families will be isolated and often called "mad" as he is an offence to the family that has put aside their holiness Church past to embrace the new non-offending culture of today.
Jezebel provides a sexual escape route for those overwhelmed by sin. Its called escapism and anyone who comes near to trying to face the sinner with the depravity of his/her position will be clearly isolated, pulled down through backchat and called "crazy".
The Biblical Ahab was overwhelmed by his sin, sins that exceeded the sins of Jeroboam, the consequences of which came before the judgment of God as they will today, the perpetrator Jezebel being in danger of the eternal fire.
Today's Ahab's have a similar fate, although we see what was a physical battle in the Old Testament as a spiritual one today. There was a whole family around the physical Ahab. He was the authoritative one as King, the one of power and those who came against this Kingly authority where in fear of losing all they had, like Naboth. There are Naboth's today facing the same ultimatum of losing family inheritance. The Jezebel controlled Ahab will look to destroy those who look to stand against a society riddled by sin even if this means a complete destruction of a fellow family member or Church body. This will occur through backchattings and plottings to bring to nothing the isolated remnant who do not play the newly respected games of a society bent on pleasure rather than on the fear of God.
We as a family have had to face up to this several times and know there are so many out there devestated and hurt by roaring Jezebels with quiet calculated Ahabs under the remote control of the Jezebel.
The end result of Ahab and Jezebel is clear in the scriptures but for those going through these attacks or recovering from them, a "haven of rest" is required. That is what this Church in Rhos is all about. We understand!
2 Kings 9:8-10 (King James Version)
For the whole house of Ahab shall perish: and I will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel: And I will make the house of Ahab like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah: And the dogs shall eat Jezebel in the portion of Jezreel, and there shall be none to bury her. And he opened the door, and fled.
2) Jezebels use Biblical Principles to Operate
Isaiah 14:12-15 (King James Version)
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.
We study the scriptures and discover Lucifer proclaiming that he shall be "like the most High". In other words he will copy the ways of the one true God, the one true God making his habitation in the bodies of believers.
In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
As the Born Again believer becomes built together for an habitation of God, so Jezebel will control and manipulate the very mind and being of the Ahab she inhabits. Through the weak vessel she can manipulate her operations of destruction against the prophets of God. On one occasion we had one so called "Elder" of a Church ring up people on our mailing list to tell them how terrible I Was. I had exposed his Jezebel only weeks before and now the Jezebel attack came to blacken our name to those who could well give financially to the ministry.
I asked one such mail-out receiver if she had asked of the relationship the "Elder" had with the Jezebel for we had previously exposed sexual relationship in the so called Charismatic Leaders Church with her elder. These things are common with Jezebel. Their activities
3) Jezebel will always go after family inheritances often through her Ahab as she went after Naboth’s Vineyard.
We are well aware of this both in our own family life and in our ministry. If there is a set plan of inheritance or ongoing money supply into a home or ministry Jezebel will hypnotise and I include even Christians to take decisions contrary to their previous codes of behaviour.
This happenned with the physical Jezebel, it being even more common today through the spiritual one.
1 Kings 21 (King James Version)
And it came to pass after these things, that Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard, which was in Jezreel, hard by the palace of Ahab king of Samaria.
And Ahab spake unto Naboth, saying, Give me thy vineyard, that I may have it for a garden of herbs, because it is near unto my house: and I will give thee for it a better vineyard than it; or, if it seem good to thee, I will give thee the worth of it in money.
Jezebel will always look to do a deal, to be seen to do the "right thing" even to the point of apparent generosity to get her way.
And Naboth said to Ahab, The LORD forbid it me, that I should give the inheritance of my fathers unto thee.
The Prophet will always refuse the deal, preferring to be led of the Lord rather than the subtle pressure of the Jezebel.
And Ahab came into his house heavy and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him: for he had said, I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers. And he laid him down upon his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no bread.
But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said unto him, Why is thy spirit so sad, that thou eatest no bread?
Jezebel will always show sympathy and be nice to her Ahab.
And he said unto her, Because I spake unto Naboth the Jezreelite, and said unto him, Give me thy vineyard for money; or else, if it please thee, I will give thee another vineyard for it: and he answered, I will not give thee my vineyard.
And Jezebel his wife said unto him, Dost thou now govern the kingdom of Israel? arise, and eat bread, and let thine heart be merry: I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.
So she wrote letters in Ahab's name, and sealed them with his seal, and sent the letters unto the elders and to the nobles that were in his city, dwelling with Naboth.
Jezebel will appear to the pride of her Ahab. This can be an elder in a Church or someone who sees himself in position in a family, and so activity will take place from the Jezebel to blacken the name of the Naboth.
And she wrote in the letters, saying, Proclaim a fast, and set Naboth on high among the people: And set two men, sons of Belial, before him, to bear witness against him, saying, Thou didst blaspheme God and the king. And then carry him out, and stone him, that he may die.
This scenario is rife in Church life today and I tell one story publicly of it that will cause a stir, but I don't care - I tell the story with a heart to set so many victims of Jezebel free. We were pleased to get to know Rev Dr Roy and Pauline Harthern when God call him back to the City of his natural father Charles.
Charles was Uncle of a lady in our Church called Sheila and so she was related to Roy. Roy and Pauline had been given charge of one of the many AOG churches Charles Harthern had pioneered in Stoke On Trent, the Church needing to be restored back to the ancient landmark his father had set. I had prophesied he would be there two weeks and before you knew it a Jezebellic confrontation had taken place, the new elders in line with the respectability of the day taking the side of the Jezebel above the Prophet God had returned to the landmark seat of his father.
Communications were rife as in Jezebel's physical day, the spirit of Jezebel causing great division, the Prophet was blamed for. The gossip that followed was a spiritual stoning of the Prophet taking away his reputation in the area, an area he still weeps over today.
The authorities of Baal are still set forth to hinder the Prophets of today, to remove their inheritances and remove their reputations. We experience this in our own family and so we having been through this believe we are qualified of the Lord to set upon this understanding "haven of rest" in Rhos On Sea
And the men of his city, even the elders and the nobles who were the inhabitants in his city, did as Jezebel had sent unto them, and as it was written in the letters which she had sent unto them. They proclaimed a fast, and set Naboth on high among the people.
And there came in two men, children of Belial, and sat before him: and the men of Belial witnessed against him, even against Naboth, in the presence of the people, saying, Naboth did blaspheme God and the king. Then they carried him forth out of the city, and stoned him with stones, that he died.
Then they sent to Jezebel, saying, Naboth is stoned, and is dead.
With the spiritual Jezebel this takes place in the context of destroying the credibilbilty of the Prophet.
He is made to look "mad" and out of his mind whilst the Ahab sits as King on his throne with all his faculties together.
The outward appearance will make the Jezebel controlled Ahab to look very strong. The reality is somewhat different.
2 Corinthians 10:6-8 (King James Version)
And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? if any man trust to himself that he is Christ's, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ's, even so are we Christ's.
For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the Lord hath given us for edification, and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed:
And it came to pass, when Jezebel heard that Naboth was stoned, and was dead, that Jezebel said to Ahab, Arise, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give thee for money: for Naboth is not alive, but dead. And it came to pass, when Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, that Ahab rose up to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, to take possession of it.
God will always bring forth reinforcements in time of need.
And the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying,
Arise, go down to meet Ahab king of Israel, which is in Samaria: behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth, whither he is gone down to possess it.
And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, Hast thou killed, and also taken possession? And thou shalt speak unto him, saying, Thus saith the LORD, In the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick thy blood, even thine.
And Ahab said to Elijah, Hast thou found me, O mine enemy? And he answered, I have found thee: because thou hast sold thyself to work evil in the sight of the LORD.
Behold, I will bring evil upon thee, and will take away thy posterity, and will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall, and him that is shut up and left in Israel,
And will make thine house like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah, for the provocation wherewith thou hast provoked me to anger, and made Israel to sin.
Those who sow against the Prophet will reap a destruction that is far greater.
Galatians 6:6-8 (King James Version)
Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
And of Jezebel also spake the LORD, saying, The dogs shall eat Jezebel by the wall of Jezreel.
Him that dieth of Ahab in the city the dogs shall eat; and him that dieth in the field shall the fowls of the air eat.
But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell himself to work wickedness in the sight of the LORD, whom Jezebel his wife stirred up. And he did very abominably in following idols, according to all things as did the Amorites, whom the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.
There is always opportunity for Ahab to repent -what we do not see is the repentance of Jezebel!
And it came to pass, when Ahab heard those words, that he rent his clothes, and put sackcloth upon his flesh, and fasted, and lay in sackcloth, and went softly.
And the word of the LORD came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying,
Seest thou how Ahab humbleth himself before me? because he humbleth himself before me, I will not bring the evil in his days: but in his son's days will I bring the evil upon his house.
Naboth was killed, only because he had a vineyard. Jezebel wants to destroy Christians in order to steal the vineyard which is the kingdom of God. Jezebel is the most satanic spirit – still trying to steal the vineyard – has to (a) steal churches; (b) steal people in the churches. In 325 A.D. (Constantine), Jezebel stole the entire vineyard, only to lose it to Calvin, Zwingli, John Knox etc. in the Reformation. But now, Jezebel has stolen the Reformed Church: evangelicals, pentecostals: today, there is hardly a church left without a Jezebel infiltration. There are however pockets of churches & Christians still unpolluted by Jezebel.
Conclusion:God has given you a great insight into Jezebel & her schemes. Jezebel did not win (I Kings), but had a gruesome demise 10 years later.
Already Jezebel is a defeated foe! The spirit of Jezebel is not something to be afraid of but to be careful of.
Families, fellowships and Churches need to face up to the Jezebel issue. There is no neutrality, only a calling of God to face up! Jezebels and the Prophets of Baal look in the majority. They look as if they have the power and authority. The reality is somewhat different as the Prophets of Baal found out
1 Kings 18:20-22 (King James Version)
So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel. And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word. Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal's prophets are four hundred and fifty men.
4) Chases prophets of the Lord
I Kings 18:4
For it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the Lord, that Obadiah took an hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.
The Spiritual Jezebel will do spiritually what the physical Jezebel achieved in cutting off the prophets of the Lord. Outside the context of a spiritual nation, the Jezebel will look to plot to cut off family and resources from the Prophets of the Lord, with God bringing about people to feed the cut off prophets.
We experienced this twenty years ago in Inverness when our ministry was infiltrated and we lost all we had including our home. A couple called James & Sally took us in giving us shelter and ability to survive a situation that had brought our family to nothing. They were our Obadiah and as we face Jezebel today looking to do the same thing, we know God will again supply an Obadiah if that should happen again.
We are also aware of on-line Jezebels who seeks to discredit prophetic websites as out of line with thinking of today. This applies to this site, the principle here being the importance of becoming a fool before becoming wise!
1 Corinthians 3:17-19 (King James Version)
If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
5) Association with prophets of Baal
I Kings 18:19
Jezebel will always be of the respectable system.
Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto Mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s table.
6) Causes people to forsake the covenant
I Kings 19:14-18
Britain has most certainly turned away from God. The children of Chapel goers, Mission Hall goers, Church goers, Assembly goers have fallen to the new pattern of life Baal has for them.
God, however, will always keep a remnant, but in today's culture that remnant looks stranger than ever, the wider family putting pressure on the remnant to conform.
This has happened in the once great Pentecostal movements who have moved away from the revelation preachers of the past to the conversational Higher Criticism Baal preachers of today.
We in this Church will never conform but we are conscious of having a ministry here in Rhos for those who have not conformed, but are battle weary. We understand with all of our hearts.
Yesterday, my wife listened to a dear soul who had escaped the Mugabe regime in Zimbabwe and lost all she had. We do understand - the John 10:10 reality and want to love all victims of those who have been on the front line.
1 Kings 19:14-18 (King James Version)
And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: because the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.
And the LORD said unto him, Go, return on thy way to the wilderness of Damascus: and when thou comest, anoint Hazael to be king over Syria: And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over Israel: and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be prophet in thy room.
And it shall come to pass, that him that escapeth the sword of Hazael shall Jehu slay: and him that escapeth from the sword of Jehu shall Elisha slay. Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.
7) Controls male partner by his fear of public embarrassment, knowing how to use deep emotional hurts and wounds to create soul ties.
Jezebels just love to minister in the fears and emotions realm, getting to know the partner's vulnerable areas. Knowing glances keep the partner under control this being in line with Revelation 2:20 in the context of the seduction of those who alreally called to ministry.
8)Views personal prophecy as a tool to control you whilst own life is of chaos, confusion, instability, broken relationships and destructions.
The Jezebel will control the life through personal words of advice and control, doing what's "best" for her Ahab. She will sympathise with him like the physical Jezebel sympathised with the physical Ahab. She will look to have so much sympathy and bring the Ahab to behave in an un-charticteristic way - with a view of killing any prophet that might oppose, gthat killing in these days being achieved by cutting off resources and relationships with family.
The Jezebel's own life will have been one of insecurity and chaos looking for her Ahab to be her slave that brings some kind of order to her life.
Literal Meanings of the Name "Jezebel"?
Jezebel Meaning 1 ‘chaste’ or ‘loving kindness’
The physical Jezebel showed loving kindness to Ahab; that is why he did not divorce her.
She was also loving & kind to the prophets of Baal & Ashtoreth. Even today, this spirit brings false love & false kindness into churches and families.
It is God who is love & kindness; we do not need to import this! Therefore, ministers have to show ‘love & kindness’’. Within the hypnotic trance of the Jezebel family members and Pastors in churches have to tread carefully so as not to bring offence.
We – ‘love’ the sinner too much to show him his sin – we let them dwell in their sins, so as not to hurt them. Pastors & elders cannot ‘hurt’ believers. If the Word of God ‘hurts’ someone, we must change it to a new translation, etc. – everything is done so as not to ‘hurt’ people.
NB the case of Ananias & Sapphira in Acts. The Church is born in Acts 2. This is a young, immature Church – yet there is the story of Ananias & Sapphira (Acts 5). Where is the ‘grace & loving kindness’ of God in the New Testament? God says “I am Love – but don’t mess with me!!”
The kind of love that operates so as not to bring offence is not the God kind of love.
1 Peter 2:7-9 (King James Version)
Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,
And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;
Jezebel Meaning 2 ‘Where is the Prince?’
NB we are kings, seated with Christ in heavenly places. Jesus is the King of kings. But Jezebel will say “Where is that prince in you?” “Show them who you are!” This is pride. It is the same as Satan did with Jesus at the end of his 40-day fast. “If you are the Son of God…” Jezebel questions our position in God. Do not listen to Jezebel; listen to the Word of God. We do not have to show who we are. The demonic forces already know! Pride is such an evil (Proverbs – ‘it goeth before destruction’).
Jezebel Meaning 3 ‘not exalted’ –
This is false humility. The same spirit on the one hand will trigger your pride; on the other, will show you as a ‘worm’ - this is irony! It brings false despondency “I can’t do anything!”
Jezebel Meaning 4 Husbandlessness’ (no husband) –
You would say this only if someone was (a) a widow or (b) divorced/separated. You would not use it for a spinster. The spirit of Jezebel knows we have a husband/bridegroom – Jesus. So now, Christians influenced by Jezebel will say “I belong to the Body” - but say “I have not surrendered to the Head – why should I?” They will not obey Christ, or the apostolic leadership of the church. Therefore they are disobedient to proper Biblical leadership.
Question: How does Jesus manifest himself now? Answer: Through the Word of God.Any Christian who disobeys the Word is husbandless! The Word of God is something we need to learn, seek after, and study. Many Christians today are husbandless; therefore have to go behind freemasonry, witchcraft etc. and false Jezebel “Bibles”.
How to Deal With Jezebel!
The solution is simple: Expose the THIEF!
Remember too - unlike Naboth we have the Holy Ghost today and the fearless Power we have in confronting the Jezebel is absolutely awesome to the Jezebel. WE ARE BOLD IN HIM and we all need to stand to protect our families, churches and loved ones setting them free from the hypnotic clutches of Jezebel.
Jeremiah 2:25-27 (King James Version)
Withhold thy foot from being unshod, and thy throat from thirst: but thou saidst, There is no hope: no; for I have loved strangers, and after them will I go.
As the thief is ashamed when he is found, so is the house of Israel ashamed; they, their kings, their princes, and their priests, and their prophets.
Saying to a stock, Thou art my father; and to a stone, Thou hast brought me forth: for they have turned their back unto me, and not their face: but in the time of their trouble they will say, Arise, and save us.
Jezebels will always plot behind the scenes using Church members under her control or family members. The solution is to bring it all out in the open. If Jezebel is "occult "- and "occult" means unseen - then the solution is to bring it all out into the open and name the Jezebel. we know that works and sets the repentant Church or Family Members who have been under the control free!
Proverbs 6:30-32 (King James Version)
Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry; But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house. But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding:he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.
