It’s Jezebel’s Fault #2

Jude 6 TPT
6 In the same way, there were heavenly messengers in rebellion who went outside their rightful domain of authority and abandoned their appointed realms. God bound them in everlasting chains and is keeping them in the dark abyss of the netherworld until the judgment of the great day.
Jude 6 NLT
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.
Chained in prisons of darkness/dark abyss of the netherworld
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
So 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"
The Light Which is in You be not darkness.......
Lk
1:35
Luke 11:35 TPT
35 Open your heart and consider my words. Watch out that you do not mistake your opinions for revelation-light!
KJV).
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.
The ingredients i am about to share with you is what its needed to produce the jezebel spirit. These ingredients alone are harmless but together dangerous.
Manipulation, Control, Insecurity Rejection, Pride, Arrogance
I purposely left one out because this one is the venom of this serpent.
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:
4. Rejection:
It is the sense of being unwanted and unable to receive love from others.
Manifestations of rejection: such perfectionism, fear, withdrawing from life, pride, self-reliance, people pleasing, lust, insecurity, inferiority, shame, and more.

10 Fruits of a Spirit of Rejection At Work

You find yourself comparing your circumstances or situations with others, and you never   seem to measure up.
You feel like you missed out on life’s opportunities and now it’s too late.
No amount of encouragement is enough to convince you of your worth.
You feel rejected if you are not greeted or acknowledged by leadership.
You constantly seek the approval of others and suffer from people pleasing.
You are easily offended or embarrassed from discipline or correction.
You are always trying to prove yourself in public.
You feel like you are on the outside looking in during interactions with people.
You think you could do a better job than the current leader or teacher if you are given the opportunity.

Proverbs 16:18 GW
18 Pride precedes a disaster, and an arrogant attitude precedes a fall.
Hebrews 6:4–6 AV
4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
The History Of Jezebel
Revelation 2:20 GW
20 But I have something against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. She teaches and misleads my servants to sin sexually and to eat food sacrificed to idols.
Jezebel the 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
1 Kings 1
1 Kings 16:29–33 NCV
29 Ahab son of Omri became king of Israel during Asa’s thirty-eighth year as king of Judah, and Ahab ruled Israel in the city of Samaria for twenty-two years. 30 More than any king before him, Ahab son of Omri did many things the Lord said were wrong. 31 He sinned in the same ways as Jeroboam son of Nebat, but he did even worse things. He married Jezebel daughter of Ethbaal, the king of Sidon. Then Ahab began to serve Baal and worship him. 32 He built a temple in Samaria for worshiping Baal and put an altar there for Baal. 33 Ahab also made an idol for worshiping Asherah. He did more things to make the Lord, the God of Israel, angry than all the other kings before him.
1 Kings 21:25 NLT
25 (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.
1 Kings 21:2
Influence:
She killed many of the Lord’s prophets, and tried but failed to end the prophet Elijah’s life
1 Kings 18:4 NLT
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.)
1 Kings 19:1–3 GW
1 Ahab told Jezebel everything Elijah had done, including how he had executed all the prophets. 2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger to Elijah. She said, “May the gods strike me dead if by this time tomorrow I don’t take your life the way you took the lives of Baal’s prophets.” 3 Frightened, Elijah fled to save his life. He came to Beersheba in Judah and left his servant there.
I kings 19:1
Ahab: Ran and told everything Elijah had done.
Jezebel: Sends a message
Elijah is afraid & Runs: Fear & Flight
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?”
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
1 Kings 18:19
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 (, , ).
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.”

This abomination caused God to raise up Elijah
This is Exactly what God is doing in this season. Its a Raising Up!!
Revelation 2:20 NLT
20 “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.
No Longer can we allow/permit this spirit to lead..
No Longer can we allow/permit this spirit to teach followers to commit sexual sin..
