The Jezebel Spirit What Is It, How You Get It, & Where It Comes From

In this post, I am going to talk about the Jezebel spirit because as a Christian you always, ALWAYS hear me say that spirits are very real and it is about time that we start to understand how they manifest in us. It is not in like the movie the exorcism or like goons or goblins or none of that.

They manifest in very everyday ways that people are used to in the sense that we have become so used to the imperfections of man that all of this abnormal behavior has become normal to us. As I said in my understanding the devil and how he works video (which you can watch here) God’s intention was for us (as in mankind) to be perfect and not to have all of this emotional damage or even physical illnesses. It was not until Adam and Eve decided to eat of the fruit that they gave away their perfection and allowed the devil to contaminate us with all of this imperfection.

As then as through one trespass [Adam’s sin] there resulted in condemnation for all men. Romans 5:18

 And the Jezebel spirit is one of those condemnations. A very prevalent imperfection especially among women. Now before we get into what the signs of the Jezebel spirit is there are a few things that you need to understand.  If you or someone you know has the Jezebel spirit you do not have to have all of these signs, you can have some of them. The more you feed into it the more you will get it. I talk about my struggle with lust and how my friend told me I had the Jezebel spirit and how that made me reflect on my issues and ultimately I chose to heal from it (click here to read). I did not have all of these signs but that just goes to show that you do not have to. Before we get into the signs there are some key things that I want you to remember:

  • Jezebel was mentioned in the Bible as coming against Elijah BUT it is a spirit, not just a person. A spirit that was mentioned again in the book of Revelations (along with her specific characteristics) long after the original Jezebel was dead. Therefore, there are always characteristics of the Jezebel spirits that one can possess. Don’t just think because you do not act like the original Jezebel that you do not suffer from the Jezebel spirit. Because the traits can vary. Also, check out my YouTube video where I go into great detail on this below, and don’t forget to subscribe to my channel by clicking here.

  • Know that if you or someone you know suffers from the Jezebel spirit it does not mean that you are going to hell. The fact of the matter is that demons come against all us all day every day, not just this one. And oftentimes we are not aware of them. Heck, Mary Magdalene had 7 demons in her (Luke 8:1-3) and she got it together and was one of Jesus’ most loyal disciples. For the Bible clearly states:

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood [contending only with physical opponents], but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this [present] darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) places. Ephesians 6:12

So know that you are not condemned to a life full of torment and burning in the lake of fire. Simply be aware, put on the armor of God, and fight against it. Now that we got all of that out of way, let’s get into the signs, shall we?

#1 The Most Prevalent Sign Of The Jezebel Spirit Is Sexual Immorality

But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants to practice sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols. Revelation 2:20

Many people think that this is the ONLY sign of the Jezebel spirit but this is just one, oftentimes it may be the only one and often it may even be the first one to show up. It is because the flesh is so easy to feed. And lust has become so acceptable in this day and age. It is a lot easier to give in to this aspect of the Jezebel spirit and dismiss it as okay as opposed to any other aspect of the Jezebel spirit traits. Because we all want to believe that casual sex is a wonderfully liberating experience when it is not.  

I highly recommend that you read my works of the flesh blog to understand more on sexual immorality but things like having orgies, having sex outside of marriage (I know you don’t want to hear that but…ts true), having sex with many many men creates souls ties (click here to read my blog on that), all of these things are not only sexually immoral but can even make you susceptible to the Jezebel spirit. For the Bible clearly states:

Do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, The two shall be one flesh. But the one who is united and joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him. Run away from sexual immorality [in any form, whether thought or behavior, whether visual or written]. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the one who is sexually immoral sins against his own body. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is within you, whom you have [received as a gift] from God, and that you are not your own [property]? You were bought with a price [you were actually purchased with the precious blood of Jesus and made His own]. So then, honor and glorify God with your body. 1 Corinthians 6: 12-20

Meaning to NOT get the Jezebel spirit stay away from sexual immorality because it can enter you through other people and when that spirit comes in then literally it will be fighting against the spirit of God that is within you and as someone who has been there, that is not something that you want.

Indications that you do have the Jezebel spirit would be to feel like you cannot STOP having sex. If you feel like you have to have it, you have sex with many men, even ones that you do not know. Sex is an intimate act you are naked I mean think about it, this should not be a casual thing. If you are addicted to porn or you have lustful thoughts all the time. This is an issue. To heal yourself from it, once again check out my blog here and watch my video below on celibacy as this is what you should do and don’t forget to subscribe to my channel by clicking here. 

#2 Idolatry, Which Can Be Many Things

But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants to practice sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols. Revelation 2:20

The Obvious Idolatry Traits

Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and began to serve Baal and worship him. 1 Kings 16:31

In the Bible when people think of idolatry they tend to think of a golden calf in which one falls down and worships. These are obvious idols. As a Christian, there may not be many of you out there worshiping a golden calf but you may engage in idol worship in other ways that you may not know about. And the fact that you do these things does NOT mean that you have the Jezebel trait, but adopting certain traits does make you more susceptible to getting the other ones.  

Jesus answered, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, everyone who practices sin habitually is a slave of sin. John 8:34-36

So if you notice that you start to get some of the traits of the Jezebel spirit it is better to start to deal with them now then just fester, and possibly pick up new ones and then take on the whole Jezebel persona altogether. 

Ways in which you may be idol-worshiping:

So what is this whole idea this New Aged stuff about there is God AND the Universe. UMMMM no there is God and God is the Universe. There is no two different entities.  

It was shown to you so that you might have [personal] knowledge and comprehend that the Lord is God; there is no other besides Him. Deuteronomy 4:35

I am the [a] Alpha and the Omega [the Beginning and the End], says the Lord God, Who is [existing forever] and Who was [continually existing in the past] and Who is to come, the Almighty [the Omnipotent, the Ruler of all]. Revelation 1:8

There are no two separate things and there is no asking two separate entities. There should be no asking God and then no asking the universe. Because then you would have two separate Gods. That goes for no praying to angels or praying to anything other than God, the ONE GOD. God does send angels to us to answer our prayers but we do not pray to them.

I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. And when I heard and saw them, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. But he said to me, Do not do that. I am a fellow servant with you and your brothers the prophets and with those who heed and remember [the truths contained in] the words of this book. Worship God. Revelation 22:8-9

And to those who believe in astrology, now I will admit that I am guilty of looking at a horoscope for entertainment and that is me being honest. It is one thing to be entertained and it is another thing to base your entire life decisions on astrology, who you date on it, and what you think about a person without even meeting them based on an astrological sign. I know that I am a Pisces but I cannot tell you who I am compatible with or my traits or anything like that according to a sign. I know plenty of people born near my birthday and we are nowhere near the same. So to base life on that is not reality. Entertainment is one thing, I am not going to make a life decision on a horoscope. It’s just not that serious. Because now you are being guided astrology when your guidance should come from the Holy Spirit.

And beware that you do not raise your eyes toward heaven and see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the host of heaven, and let yourselves be led astray and worship them and serve them, [merely created bodies] which the Lord your God has allotted to [serve and benefit] all the peoples under the whole heaven. Deuteronomy 4:19

If none of these hit home for you then let’s go more so into your everyday stuff. 

Not so obvious Idolatry

When it comes to the not so obvious idol worship that is anything that you love more than God. It can be money and for many women (such as Jezebel it can be your man). It is anything or anyone, that you are willing to break the commandments of God for and you love more than God. 

Granted Jezebel is not a Christian, but in your case, you may be. And if you are willing to lie, cheat, steal and kill for your man then you are placing that man over God because God tells you, NOT to do these things and therefore the man is your idol, not God. And so here we see the start of Jezebel’s reign of terror when her husband was denied land from a man named Naboth. Which led to a Bonnie and Clyde type of revenge on this man.

As soon as Jezebel got their message, she told Ahab, Now you can have the vineyard Naboth refused to sell. He’s dead. Ahab got up and went to take over the vineyard. Kings 21:15

Even if you do not love your man more than God. What about money? Take for example, when Jesus said the parable about it is easier for a man to fit a camel through an eye of a needle then it is for a rich man to get into heaven, he was saying that because the man made his money his idol.

Go and sell what you have and give [the money] to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me [becoming My disciple, believing and trusting in Me and walking the same path of life that I walk. But when the young man heard this, he left grieving and distressed, for he owned much property and had many possessions [which he treasured more than his relationship with God]. Jesus said to His disciples, I assure you and most solemnly say to you, it is difficult for a rich man [who clings to possessions and status as security] to enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 19: 21-23

A key indicator of the Jezebel spirit would be these women who want to just use men for their money or to be sugar babies, they are willing to be sexually immoral (also a Jezebel trait to get their idol which is money).   So much so that they are willing to do anything to do it. Other signs may be the ride or die chick type of mentality on crack. Meaning that she will kill, cheat, sell drugs, and do any and everything for her man even if it is wrong. As long as it is to her benefit of course. Once again you are making your man your idol. You are going against God to please your man and you cannot serve two masters: 

 No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon [money, possessions, fame, status, or whatever is valued more than the Lord]. Matthew 6:24

#3 Mimics the Devil’s Energy of Arrogance

But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants to practice sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols. Revelation 2:20

I know I have quoted this Bible verse three times but the last thing that I wanted to point out is the arrogance of this Bible verse in the sense that it was Jezebel who calls herself a prophetess but then when you look at what she is doing, her actions are not “prophetess like. And the idea of being arrogant is a devil trait and literally, that is why the devil got kicked out of heaven for trying to exalt himself above God (Ezekiel 28). So anything that has to do with being super cocky, arrogant, and trying to place one’s self in a position of authority (despite their evil tendencies) is a direct Jezebel trait. Which will bring me to my next point.

#4 The Jezebel Spirit Tries Gains Power Through Threats

Jezebel is from the devil so obviously, the way in which she is going to operate is going to be of that energy. It is not like the Jezebel spirit is going to be honest and gain power through being a good person or even a good leader. Instead, they gain power through intimidation and fear. Instead, a trait of the Jezebel spirit is going to gain power through manipulation, threats, and other ways that are of course are NOT of God. Take for example:

And when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the Lord, Obadiah took a hundred prophets and hid them by fifties in a cave and fed them with bread and water. 1 Kings 18:4

First, it should go without saying that Jezebel is against God’s people but more than anything who is going to go against her if she is out cutting off people’s heads. And even incited fear in the prophet Elijah and he had the power of the real God and had him running into a cave. And wanted God to kill him. And mind you Elijah was commanding fire out of the sky that is how intimidating the Jezebel spirit can be, especially toward men.

Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed all the prophets with the sword. Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah, saying, “So may the gods do to me and more also, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by this time tomorrow. Then he was afraid, and he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness and came and sat down under a broom tree. And he asked that he might die. 1 Kings 19:1-21

That is the influence that the Jezebel spirit has over people, especially over men. And she typically uses anger, manipulation, threats, and force to get their way with men or to gain power and influence. 

#5 User and Manipulator of men in romantic relationships  

 There was none who sold himself to do what was evil in the sight of the Lord like Ahab, whom Jezebel his wife incited. 1 Kings 21:25

 If you notice from the above Bible verse, Jezebel manipulated the soldiers to do her bidding but more than anything she also turned her husband into someone that was evil. A Jezebel type of woman that would:

  • Turn a man away from God.
  • Turn a man away from his family, especially if it meant that he would only lean on her.
  • Tell a man not to see or provide for his kids with another woman.
  • Encourage him to do something illegal, especially if it is profitable for her. (I.e. sell drugs, rob a bank, kill her husband so she can collect the life insurance policy).
  • She would also use her sexual influence (aka another Jezebel trait) in order to get her way with the man.

#6 The Jezebel Spirit Can Be A Toxic Motherhood

Even after Jezebel died, the effects of her stayed around to her son. 

Take the following Bible verse:

 Joram son of Ahab did evil in the eyes of the Lord, but not as his father and mother had done. He got rid of the sacred stone of Baal that his father had made. Nevertheless, he clung to the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he had caused Israel to commit; he did not turn away from them. 2 Kings 3:2

So he was NOT as evil as his mother and father but he was still evil none the less and of course, we know where he learned it from. For we know that God will bless and curse the descendants of the generations.

For I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, Exodus 20:5

Yeah, it sucks, but it is what it is. In any case, these are some of the signs of the Jezebel spirit and as I said before you just have to right against anything that is not of God but putting on the armor of God. 

Put on the full armor of God [for His precepts are like the splendid armor of a heavily-armed soldier], so that you may be able to [successfully] stand up against all the schemes and the strategies and the deceits of the devil. So stand firm and hold your ground, having [a]tightened the wide band of truth (personal integrity, moral courage) around your waist and having put on the breastplate of righteousness (an upright heart), and having [b]strapped on your feet the gospel of peace in preparation [to face the enemy with firm-footed stability and the readiness produced by the good news]. Above all, lift up the [protective] [c]shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Ephesians 6: 11-15

Remember, greater is the God that is within you than the spirit that is within the world. God can fight off any unwanted energy or spirit that is within you.
