What is\nthe Jezebel Spirit?\n\n\n\nJezebel is a character in the Old Testament from the book of Kings. She was the wife of King Ahab (King of Israel). Jezebel and her husband told the people of Israel that they could worship the two Gods known as Baal and Asherah. She was also known to get rid of God\u2019s (Yahweh) prophets. In the end, Jezebel suffered in death when she was cast out of a window. \n\n\n\nJezebel was\nalso involved in arranging for an innocent man\u2019s death. In the book of 1 Kings, King Ahab is said to\nhave done more wicked acts than any other previous king of Israel before him. \n\n\n\nIt is\nbelieved that Jezebels father Ethbaal may have had something to do with his\ndaughter marrying King Ahab because he worked for the government. It is\npossible that he introduced the two to one another for marriage. \n\n\n\nBoth Jezebel\nand her husband were evil and therefore promoted the worship of false\nGods. When you have two evil minds\nworking together, it is often the perfect recipe for disaster. \n\n\n\nJezebel put in an order to have an altar built for the God Baal. This altar was built in Samaria. The people of Israel were confused as to who was the true God. Was it the God of Israel (Yahweh) or Baal? This was a problem that was created by King Ahab and Jezebel. \n\n\n\nOn many occasions,\nJezebel would put the Lords (Yahweh) prophets to death. While Jezebel was working her evil, a good\nman by the name of Obadiah was hiding Gods true prophets in caves and feeding\nthem. He knew that these prophets were\nof Yahweh and his goal was to keep them safe. \nHe protected one hundred prophets in total. \n\n\n\nThe\nProblem with Prophet Elijah and King Ahab\n\n\n\nBecause of\nthe prosecution of death of so many of God\u2019s prophets, Elijah said that he was\nthe only prophet left. The God Baal had\n450 prophets. Elijah said that he was the only prophet at Mount Caramel. \n\n\n\nProphet Elijah decided to do a test between his God Yahweh and the Prophets of Baal. He took 2 bulls. He had them both cut into pieces. One of the bulls was for the prophets of Baals God and the other bull was for Yahweh. \n\n\n\nElijah told\nthe prophets of Baal to call upon their God to ignite a flame of fire to cook\nthe meat. The prophets of Baal tried to\ncall upon their God and even cut themselves in order to make him light the\nfire. However, nothing happened. No\nmatter what the prophets of Baal did, there was no fire. The prophets of Baal\nwere gashing themselves until blood flowed out of them. \n\n\n\nElijah\nordered that a trench be dug around the alter where the pieces of meat were. He\ntold them to fill it with water 3 times. He also added 12 stones to the alter to\nrepresent the twelve tribes of Israel. \n\n\n\nElijah then began\ncalling upon the Lord God of Israel (Yahweh) to light the fire. Within seconds, fire appeared and even\nconsumed all the water. The people were in awe of the truthfulness of Yahweh\nand that He was the one true God. \n\n\n\nAfter this demonstration,\nElijah ordered them to kill the prophets of Baal. When Queen Jezebel found out about this\nkilling of her prophets, she wanted vengeance upon Elijah. \n\n\n\nElijah ran\nto the wilderness and hid under a Juniper tree. He feared what Jezebel might do\nto him. \n\n\n\nWhat\nHappened with Naboth and Jezebel? \n\n\n\nNaboth was a\nman that owned a vineyard by inheritance of his ancestors. The vineyard was close to King Ahab\u2019s\nplace. King Ahab wanted to plant an herb\ngarden and demanded that Naboth give it to him. \nHowever, Naboth refused his request because this was something given to\nhim by his ancestors and didn\u2019t want to part with it. \n\n\n\nHowever, the\nwicked Queen Jezebel didn\u2019t care what Naboth had to say. She wanted this vineyard and decided to get\nit in her own way. She was not taking no\nas an answer. \n\n\n\nQueen\nJezebel decided to conspire against Naboth by accusing him of blasphemy against\nGod. She got two people to lie against\nNaboth saying that they heard him blaspheming against God. She forged the seal which was supposed to be\nsigned by her husband King Ahab. However, Jezebel signed the order herself and\nput in the order that Naboth be stoned to death. \n\n\n\nWhen King Ahab\nheard of the death of Naboth, he went and seized the land. When the prophet Elijah heard of this wicked\nact, he came out of the wilderness and confronted King Ahab in the vineyard. The prophet Elijah told him that his evil\nactions have caused Israel to sin. \n\n\n\nIn 1 Kings\n21:23, the Bible tells us that the Lord was angered by Jezebels actions and\nblamed her for the death of Naboth since she was the one that forged the seal\nfor him to be put to death. It further\ngoes on to say that King Ahab was the most sinful king that Israel ever had,\nand he was provoked by his wife Jezebel. \n\n\n\n\nWhen King\nAhab heard the words of Elijah, he finally realized what he had done. He realized it and then began to fast and put\non sackcloth because he was in sorrow for his actions. \n\n\n\nSince King Ahab\nchastened himself, the Lord told Elijah that he would not bring punishment upon\nhim. However, judgement would instead fall upon his sons. \n\n\n\nKing Ahab\nlived for another 3 years and then died in a war against Syria. Jezebel was eventually pushed out of a window\nand fell to her death. \n\n\n\nWhat is a\nJezebel Spirit?\n\n\n\nIf you or\nsomeone that you know has ever been called a Jezebel, it means that you have a\nspirit that is all about yourself. You\nonly want what you want and will do anything to get it. You will deceive or even kill to get what you\nwant no matter what the cost. It means\nthat you are a wicked person. \n\n\n\nThe spirit\nof Jezebel was all about her doing whatever she felt like and not caring what\nGod had to say about it. The Jezebel\nspirit is one that is wicked because it does evil and does care who she is\nhurting.
