Ok, this is deep. It’s deeper than what I usually like to post, but I was so moved by this that I had to share! Disclaimer, I am not a preacher, nor do I try to be. I am not perfect–at all! My life on social media may appear to be pretty awesome, but keep in mind I am trained to share good news: public relations. I don’t share the ugly side of my so-called “fabulous” life, but that’s simply by choice. Today, I’m going to share something a little more personal, something I rarely confess, even to myself. But, whatever–here goes nothing!
I am a Christian. I love God. I believe Jesus died on the cross for my sins so that I could have eternal life. I have experienced God for myself, I mean look at all He has made possible in my life! God is so amazing, and I am an Unashamed Christian! I can’t get enough of Him!
I fight daily to be led by the Holy Spirit, because this is the key to happiness and really enjoying life. But as we know, with good comes the bad. Most churches and ministries focus on the Glory of God and his many blessings. This is great, until you start to feel personally attacked by the enemy and his worshipers. Yes, with good comes evil and we are reminded throughout The Bible to beware of the enemy because he is out to get our souls.
The Jezebel Spirit
When we hear this word, we often think of the stereotypical vesion of a Jezebel:
a loose woman who wants sex all the time. She’s gotta have it. Yet at the same time she uses sex to draw men in to get what she wants. Sometimes it is money. Sometimes it is to destroy them. (Source)
This is the stereotype, but what about the spiritual type? I’ve been studying the bible and various lectures via You Tube the past few weeks. I’m a millennial, I applaud the digital versions of information, OK? I came across this powerful lecture titled Unmasking the Jezebel Spirit and it blew my mind! I am somewhat familiar with Jezebel in our biblical text– she was a Queen in the Old Testament and cold-bloodedly killed many of God’s prophets during her reign. After doing a bit more digging, I discovered more about this Jezebel spirit:
Simply put, a Jezebel spirit is one of Satan’s higher-ranking, more intelligent demons if not the smartest kind of demon he has in his kingdom.
And with it being much more intelligent than many of the other lower-ranking demons will be, this makes this type of spirit much more evil, cunning, and harder to deal with once it moves in and attaches to a person. It will cause a lot more trouble and destruction if it is not quickly dealt with and cast out.
This type of spirit is the most common in women. It walks around as if it is the ruler, instead of submitting to her husband. God intended for us women–yes, even us “new” women– to submit to our men. No matter how much money, or how many degrees a woman acquires, when it comes to the home: it’s time to be a wife and submit to your husband. This spirit is so powerful nowadays, that a lot of women boast about “not submitting to my husband.” #OutOfOrder
I’m not married, but I want to be one day. In order to do so, I had to confront this type of spirit in my personal life and cast it out!
I come from a family, that I now realize, was negatively impacted by this very spirit. It came into my own home, and sought to destroy it. This childhood experience with the Jezebel spirit left and imprint on my life that I am just now starting to confront and cast out. Fast forward to 2016, I appear to be a pretty good woman and I’m often asked why I am single? It’s because I have been walking around here, effected by the Jezebel spirit who took over my family a long time ago! I could continue to be a product of that environment, but God gives us redemption and a chance to write our own story.
God gives us the exact answer to our own questions in order to transform us. He renews our mind. It’s never too late to get our spirits in line with the word of God.
We can start right now!
Women in “Charge”
Nowadays, women are starting businesses left and right and the media continues to celebrate the idea of women’s liberation. But, since I’m keeping it real— I’m not totally sold on this propaganda. Especially in black homes, our men are becoming more and more emasculated and we wonder why. It’s not the women, it’s the spirit of Jezebel, who is Satan’s spirit. So in fact, it’s the enemy having his way. I do believe in women’s rights and all of that stuff, but I believe even more, in the power of a strong family unit: God-fearing Father, who leads the Mother, who raises the children up to walk in Christ’s way. That’s the perfect formula to a Christian family unit that is strong enough to withstand the tricks of the enemy. But that’s not America today.
Do you want to know the perfect example of the Jezebel spirit in mainstream media? Let’s revisit some of the key characteristics of this spirit:
- Emasculates the man
- Not submissive
- Needs an “Ahab” or submissive man/being to control, and enjoys it
- Easily angered
- Does “whatever it takes” to maintain control and power over their subordinates
- Will always seek to be the center of attention
- Highly lustful and seductive
- Charismatic type energy on the host
and the winner is…..
Kris Jenner, the creator of the Kardashian Brand, inspired by a “leaked” sex-tape. All of her daughters are under her control, literally. And her former husband was emasculated so much, that he is now a woman.
Let that sink in..
Well, well, well what do we have here? Like I said, I’m not perfect, I’m not a preacher, nor do I claim to know the word so well to say what’s what and who’s who in this earthly realm: but 1+1=2. I am sharing this testimony to inspire someone who may be dealing with similar struggles in their own personal lives. Thankfully, we have the greatest book of them all to help guide us through this thing we call life. I’m happy to be surrounded by believers who are empowered by the truth. I am in a place I’ve never been spiritually, but I know it is apart of the growth that I’ve asked God for.
“These daughters go out there and get hurt more and more. We invite hurt more and more because of our thinking.. daughters are not being protected so they start protecting themselves. Next thing you know, she is acting like a guy because no one protected her. The sons impacted by Jezbel look for women to take care of them, because they don’t know how to take authority.”
Take a moment (it’s kind of long) to watch this video from Tiffany Buckner, founder of Anointed Fire, Christian ministry based out of Tampa, FL. Let me know what you think by commenting below! We are all sisters in Christ and it is up to us to help spread the knowledge of the Good Book! I pray this blesses someone, and in the meantime watch out for the Jezebel spirit, and cast it out quickly!
“God, redirect you daughters. Give us the will to seek you so that we have loving, nurturing relationships.
God, cover our hearts and our spirits. We rebuke ALL plans of the enemy in the name of Jesus! We give you all the glory and cast out all demons, especially Jezebel, that continue to destroy our families.”
