Jude 6 NLT
And I remind you of the angels who did not stay within the limits of authority God gave them but left the place where they belonged. God has kept them securely chained in prisons of darkness, waiting for the great day of judgment.
6 And I remind you of the angels who did not stay within the limits of authority God gave them but left the place where they belonged
God has kept them securely chained in prisons of darkness, waiting for the great day of judgment.
The Three battlegrounds
Francis Frangipine
When Satan rebelled against God, he was placed under eternal judgment in what the Bible calls "pits" or "bonds" of darkness. The devil, and the fallen angels with him, have been relegated to live in darkness. This darkness does not simply mean "lightless regions" or areas void of visible light. The eternal darkness to which this Scripture refers is essentially a moral darkness, which does ultimately degenerate to literal darkness. However, its cause is not simply the absence of light; it is the absence of God, who is light. It is vital to recognize that this darkness to which Satan has been banished is not limited to areas outside of humanity. Unlike those who do not know Jesus, however, we have been delivered out of the domain or "authority" of darkness (). We are not trapped in darkness if we have been born of light. But if we tolerate darkness through tolerance of sin, we leave ourselves vulnerable for satanic assault. For wherever there is willful disobedience to the Word of God, there is spiritual darkness and the potential for demonic activity. Thus Jesus warned, "Take heed that the light which is in thee be not darkness" ( KJV). There is a light in you. "The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord" (). Your spirit, illuminated by the Spirit of Christ, becomes the "lamp of the Lord" through which He searches your heart. There is indeed a holy radiance surrounding a true Spirit-filled Christian. But when you harbor sin, the "light which is in thee" is "darkness." Satan has a legal access, given to him by God, to dwell in the domain of darkness. We must grasp this point: The devil can traffic in any area of darkness, even the darkness that still exists in a Christian’s life.

Let's Look at Potential Dark Areas

 No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.
1. Secrets ** hidden things*** The power of secrets: they divide people, they deter new relationships & they freeze the development of individuals.
2. Manipulation: the exercise of undue influence through mental distortion and emotional exploitation, with the intention to seize power, control, benefits and/or privileges at the victim’s expense.
3. Insecurity:

 Pride precedes a disaster, and an arrogant attitude precedes a fall. (GOD’S WORD)

Arrogance -vs- Ignorance

Arrogance can be defined as having an attitude of superiority and being full of self or having an extreme form of pride. It can be manifested in an overbearing personality that makes it hard for others to be around. They usually have an inflated ego and sense of self-worth that is highly overestimated and an arrogant person can be presumptuous or claim to be superior and all others are deemed to be far inferior and that they feel that they are so much better than others.

The arrogant cannot stand in your presence” () or in God’s presence and “To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns” (). A wicked person will “pour out arrogant words; all the evildoers are full of boasting” () but God will “rebuke the arrogant, who are accursed, those who stray from your commands” ().
The psalmist also wrote “May the arrogant be put to shame” (). What will be the end of the arrogant? “The eyes of the arrogant will be humbled and human pride brought low; the Lord alone will be exalted in that day” () and “So people will be brought low and everyone humbled, the eyes of the arrogant humbled” (). eas

Ignorance is preferable to error.

1. The negative state of the mind which has not been instructed in Ignorant: Destitute of knowledge; uninstructed or uninformed; untaught; unenlightened. A man may be ignorant of the law, He may be ignorant of his own rights, or of the rights of others. 2. Unknown; Undiscovered; concealment.

Knowledge is light and Ignorance is darkness

NLT () 31 Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. 32 And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
NLT () 31 Jesus said to the people who believed in him, “You are truly my disciples if you remain faithful to my teachings. 32 And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
(). 34 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave of sin. 35 A slave is not a permanent member of the family, but a son is part of the family forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you are truly free.
The eternal darkness to which this Scripture refers is essentially a moral darkness, which does ultimately degenerate to literal darkness. However, its cause is not simply the absence of light; it is the absence of God, who is light. It is vital to recognize that this darkness.
Hebrews 6:4–6 NLT
For it is impossible to bring back to repentance those who were once enlightened—those who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in the Holy Spirit, who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the power of the age to come—and who then turn away from God. It is impossible to bring such people back to repentance; by rejecting the Son of God, they themselves are nailing him to the cross once again and holding him up to public shame.
Hebrews 6:4 NLT
For it is impossible to bring back to repentance those who were once enlightened—those who have experienced the good things of heaven and shared in the Holy Spirit,

The Turning From Light Brings You Into Darkness

Ignorance: is darkness.. place’s where there is ignorance in a Christians life, things we have turned away from God in. Satan has access… You ever heard someone say i was in the dark, i had not clue what was happening. This is why we must study the word of God… Pray and seek the Face of God.
The History Of Jezebel
Revelation 2:20 NLT
“But I have this complaint against you. You are permitting that woman—that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet—to lead my servants astray. She teaches them to commit sexual sin and to eat food offered to idols.
Jezebel evil Phoenician wife of King Ahab. She was responsible for replacing the worship of the Lord with the worship of Baal in the northern kingdom of Israel
29 *And in the thirty and eighth year of Asa king of Judah began Ahab the son of Omri to reign over Israel: and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty and two years. 30 And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the Lord above all that were before him. 31 And it came to pass, †as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him. 32 And he reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria. 33 And Ahab made a grove; and Ahab did more to provoke the Lord God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel that were before him.

(No one else so completely sold himself to what was evil in the Lord’s sight as Ahab did under the influence of his wife Jezebel.
She killed many of the Lord’s prophets, and tried but failed to end the prophet Elijah’s life
4 Once when Jezebel had tried to kill all the Lord’s prophets, Obadiah had hidden 100 of them in two caves. He put fifty prophets in each cave and supplied them with food and water.

2 Kings 9:30–37 KJV 1900
And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she painted her face, and tired her head, and looked out at a window. And as Jehu entered in at the gate, she said, Had Zimri peace, who slew his master? And he lifted up his face to the window, and said, Who is on my side? who? And there looked out to him two or three eunuchs. And he said, Throw her down. So they threw her down: and some of her blood was sprinkled on the wall, and on the horses: and he trode her under foot. And when he was come in, he did eat and drink, and said, Go, see now this cursed woman, and bury her: for she is a king’s daughter. And they went to bury her: but they found no more of her than the skull, and the feet, and the palms of her hands. Wherefore they came again, and told him. And he said, This is the word of the Lord, which he spake by his servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, In the portion of Jezreel shall dogs eat the flesh of Jezebel: And the carcase of Jezebel shall be as dung upon the face of the field in the portion of Jezreel; so that they shall not say, This is Jezebel.

Her name has many meanings:

Jezebel: translated means without cohabitation
simple put: she refuses to live together or co-habit with anyone. This spirit will not dwell with anyone unless she can control and dominate the relationship. When it seems submissive or servant like’, its only for the sake of gaining some strategic advantage.
From her heart she yields to no one.
JEZEBEL (Jĕzʹ ə bĕl) Personal name meaning “Where is the prince?” perhaps derived from Phoenician name meaning “Baal is the prince Jezebel’s name became so associated with wickedness that the false prophetess in the church at Thyatira was labeled “Jezebel” ().
The daughter of Ethbaal, the king of the Zidonians This was the “first time that a king of Israel had allied himself by marriage with a heathen princess; and the alliance was in this case of a peculiarly disastrous kind. Jezebel has stamped her name on history as the representative of all that is designing, crafty, malicious, revengeful, and cruel. She is the first great instigator of persecution against the saints of God.
Guided by no principle, restrained by no fear of either God or man, passionate in her attachment to her heathen worship, she spared no pains to maintain idolatry around her in all its splendour. Four hundred and fifty prophets ministered under her care to Baal, besides four hundred prophets of the groves [R.V., ‘prophets of the Asherah’], which ate at her table ().
He looked up and called to her chamberlains, who instantly threw her from the window, so that she was dashed in pieces on the street, and his horses trod her under their feet. She was immediately consumed by the dogs of the street (), according to the word of Elijah the Tishbite (
Eth-Baal—with Baal, a king of Sidon (940–908), father of Jezebel, He is said to have been also a priest of Astarte, whose worship was closely allied to that of Baal, and this may account for his daughter’s zeal in promoting idolatry in Israel. This marriage of Ahab was most fatal to both Israel and Judah.
Ashtoreth—the moon goddess of the Phoenicians, representing the passive principle in nature, their principal female deity; frequently associated with the name of Baal, the sun-god, their chief male deity (; ; ).
These names often occur in the plural (Ashtaroth, Baalim), probably as indicating either different statues or different modifications of the deities. This deity is spoken of as Ashtoreth of the Zidonians. She was the Ishtar of the Accadians and the Astarte of the Greeks (; , ; )
There was a temple of this goddess among the Philistines in the time of Saul (). Under the name of Ishtar, she was one of the great deities of the Assyrians. The Phoenicians called her Astarte. Solomon introduced the worship of this idol (). Jezebel’s 400 priests were probably employed in its service (). It was called the “queen of heaven” ().
Baal the name means “lord” or “master,” and refers to a number of Canaanite gods. During Israel’s history in Canaan, the people often turned away from God to the worship of false gods such as the Baals Under King Ahab and Queen Jezebel, the worship of Baal became the state religion of Israel, and the worship of the Lord was outlawed (). In a contest on Mount Carmel, Elijah the prophet stood up against the prophets of Baal and proved that the Lord was the one true God ().
The Ashtoreth The Pole: ( See Picture) all pictures
Ritualistic Baal worship, in sum, looked a little like this: Adults would gather around the altar of Baal. Infants would then be burned alive as a sacrificial offering to the deity. Amid horrific screams and the stench of charred human flesh, congregants – men and women alike – would engage in bisexual orgies. The ritual of convenience was intended to produce economic prosperity by prompting Baal to bring rain for the fertility of “mother earth.”

Pg. 1-2 talk about
Leadership Turned Israelis heart away from God
Jezebel Worship of false gods: Allowed the children of Israel to explore sexual desires male & female, male & male, female and female, male with beast, beast with female. This Worship also entailed sacrificing children..
This abomination caused God to raise up Elijah
This abomination caused God to raise up Elijah
And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the Lord God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.
As a countermove, Satan raised up his messenger to silence God’s prophetic voice. It came through Ahab’s wife—Queen Jezebel.
Pg 2.5-3.5
While the term “Jezebel spirit” is used in some charismatic circles, few people truly understand how this demonic force operates. It's important note that Jezebel is attracted to anointed ministries.
And it's primary target is the Leader but it's main opponent is the prophets & intercessors. These two office’s will be the hiding place for this spirit.. Wherever Elijah is, Jezebel is near by.. it’s like peanut butter and jelly..
3.5 Jezebelic strong hold:

influences the activity of others:

 (No one else so completely sold himself to what was evil in the Lord’s sight as Ahab did under the influence of his wife Jezebel. A Jezebel spirit, like a virus, is designed to shut down the network and kill the host, as well as anyone who does not disconnect The overall objective is to take control of the ministry and then kill the ministry and anyone connected to it.
Have you ever meet a man or women who prided themselves in destroying a marriage by (taking her man)
What's interesting is they never really wanted the man they just didn't want that person to have them..
(share what happened In Memphis) the night she preached, what she did while we where in service, what she said in her message, and what i did after that....
Opening your soul to operating in a Jezebel spirit is a process that occurs over time, and there are no clear-cut indicators of when a person steps over the line. The longer someone operates in a controlling and manipulative way without repenting from doing so, the stronger this spirit grows. Eventually, it will become a way of life for those overcome by this spirit.

Let’s Discuss Opening Up Ones Soul to This type of spirit..

I. listening to the lies your flesh tells you
I. listening to the lies your flesh tells you
II. Developing a root of bitterness
 Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled 15 Make sure that everyone has kindness from God so that bitterness doesn’t take root and grow up to cause trouble that corrupts many of you. (GW)
(look at Pictures )

Open Soul’s

What are some things you must guard your heart from?
look for honest answers!!
Although the illustrations of Jezebel in Scripture are female-oriented, this demonic power does not simply infect women. Men have operated in this spirit as well. When this occurs, they are left weakened and emasculated by the demonic presence.
However, it is difficult for men to operate under the influence of this spirit for very long because it needs an Ahab spirit to keep it alive. Instead, the Jezebel spirit commonly operates through women, the Jezebel spirit commonly operates through women, who use the allure and seduction of this spirit to accomplish their objectives
seduce verb : synonyms lure, allure, bait, decoy, entice, entrap, inveigle, lead on, tempt, train related words coax, tease; betray, deceive, delude, mislead; enslave, entrance; overpower, overwhelm 2 to persuade or entice into sexual partnership synonyms debauch, undo related words deflower; rape, ravish, violate; corrupt, degrade, pervert, ruin
Emasculation - Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Emasculation of a human male is the removal of the penis and the testicles, the external male sex organs. Removal of the testicles alone is termed castration. Emasculation was a form of punishment in medieval Europe and sometimes formed part of the process of being hanged, drawn, and quartered.
to deprive of strength, vigor, or spirit :  weaken to deprive of virility or procreative power : castrate

The types of men that Jezebel isn't threatened by.

1.) Ahab: we will discuss later
2.) Eunuch: A Male that’s has his testicles removed, often used in harems to oversee women
3.) Emasculate male: testicles and penis removed
() 16 Then the Lord said to Moses, 17 “Give the following instructions to Aaron: In all future generations, none of your descendants who has any defect will qualify to offer food to his God. 18 No one who has a defect qualifies, whether he is blind, lame, disfigured, deformed, 19 or has a broken foot or arm, 20 or is hunchbacked or dwarfed, or has a defective eye, or skin sores or scabs, or damaged testicles.
Jezebel is never threatened by men in the church who are unable to spiritually and naturally reproduce. Jezebel is never threatened by men who naturally & or spiritually no longer have reproductive organs and who like to pretend they have female organs. So seeing a Church house full of feminine men is more common than seeing, masculine worshiping, prayer warrior, Holy Ghost Filled Men..
So we can have masculine men but still no threat because they only come to keep the dominating wife happy, but they can’t produce anything in the kingdom. So they are no threat.. Jezebel is threatened by spirit lead, spiritually discerned, productive, praying & prophetic Kings.
Recap Chapter 1
Apostasy: is falling away from God, Jesus warned folk about being the cause of others falling away
Apostasy: is falling away from God, Jesus warned folk about being the cause of others falling away
 “But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone hung around your neck.
Jezebel is going to be attracted to following types of Ministries.
Deliverance
Prophetic
Apostolic
Charismatic

Jezebel will work its way close to leadership through intercession ministry, prophetic ministry & leadership ministry.
This spirit needs to be a voice to be effective so it has to appear that leadership agrees with them.
Jezebels strategy is to influence babes in Christ, Christians that lack spiritual depth, immature & innocent people that just love God and are looking for a big brother or big sister to help them in their journey.

Jezebel works covertly to dismantle ministry while pretending its concerned for the ministry.

Objective: (Thief) Steal the ministry, Kill the ministry, Destroy the ministry
 The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

Why Females?
Soulish Realm Soul emphasizes feeling. Spirit emphasizes faith. Soul operates on emotional experiences. Spirit operates only on spiritual reality, produced by the Holy Spirit. Soul is preoccupied with one’s self. Spirit is preoccupied with Him. While there are differences, there are also points of sameness. Both soul and spirit are capable of phenomenal demonstrations of power.
➔ Spirituality. In the New Testament the adjective “spiritual” (pneumatikos) is contrasted with “soulish” (psychikos). The word “spiritual” is used to describe gifts, the law, the resurrection body, understanding, and the believing community, as well as a person. Thus a “spiritual” person or thing belongs to the realm of the Spirit. A spiritual person is, in essence, one who is not only indwelt by the Holy Spirit, but who also lives in obedience to the Spirit’s promptings.
The NIV “man without the Spirit” is psychikos, typically rendered in older versions as “the carnal man.” The word is best translated “soulish” and means persons limited to natural rather than supernatural capacities. In contrast, possession of the Spirit makes a believer pneumatikos, “spiritual,” with the supplied capacities needed to understand revealed truths and apply them in personal moral decisions
