Demons can grow stronger over time with a secular environment cultivating them.
Believers are to put on the Armor of God (Ephesians 6:11) – fitted and worn every day to combat with this spiritual war that rages against our flesh and soul.
I’ve experienced the oppression of demons (pride, bitterness, anger, seduction, selfishness, control and other spirits), then expelling them from myself by the authority He gives us. In the past year, I expelled such spirits from a few other people too – thank you, Lord!
I read the testimony of how a father expelled a Jezebel spirit (rebellion), from his teenage daughter. Her deliverance from this vile/rebellious spirit was so obvious/evident that a social worker/counsellor assigned to her care became a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ after observing the positive change in the girl’s temperament and countenance. Her “personality change” came after her father’s 40-minute deliverance prayer one evening over a cell phone!
Marianne has posted many topics on Jezebel. Each one is worthy of your reading and application.
- Jezebel is the evil queen (1st Kings 16-21 and 2 Kings 9) and a prophetess of Baal. She is the spiritual warfare nemesis of Elijah.
- Jezebel and the worship of Baal (sexual perversion, control/rebellion) are spoken in the same breath. She ruled King Ahab, influencing the idolatry pollution of the children of Israel with pagan worship practices. She continues to pollute the church (believers) today (Revelation 2:20-23).
- She is also the adulterous woman in Proverbs. This spirit is working in “the world” (represented by Babylon and/or Egypt).
- Jezebel is evident in women, men and even children.
This evil spirit of control /rebellion is noted in Revelation chapter 2 as an antagonist/enemy to the church of Thyatira (which represents many believers) in the last days.
There is a direct correlation between Jezebel, Wormwood and the Church.
“And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; I know thy works and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. 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. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication, and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. But that which ye have already hold fast till I come. And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” (Revelation 2:18-29).
