Identifying demons and different spirits in the Bible.
Just some important revelation on the Jezebel spirit.
I asked God to reveal and explain to me why it is called and identified by this name. I heard a person say that Jezebel died and by saying so tried to explain and reason away the fact that there is such a thing as a Jezebel spirit but this is typical of satan’s realm of deception through the natural mental ascent of the fallen human mind.
Why is it called “the Jezebel spirit?
It’s because it’s the same spirit that influenced and worked through the wicked queen Jezebel and we identify it’s evil characteristics by studying the ways in which this woman operated.
Jezebel was the wife of the wicked king Ahab during the days that Israel had almost completely abandoned the faith of their fathers.
She was the daughter of a foreign king who brought her alien religion into lsrael, and because of the weakness of Ahab, she dominated the religious life of the nation, destroying the true prophets of God and establishing the prophets of Baal and Asherah. (see I Kings 16:30-32, 18:4, 13, 19.
The same is true of every other spirit named by God and identified in the Bible. You learn and study the characteristics and ways of the person who were controlled and influenced by it.
For example the “Ahab spirit” operates with the Jezebel spirit. Ahab was the husband of Jezebel and to understand the spirit that influenced Ahab, you study his ways to identify it.
Remember that it’s dark spirits that influences people and the Holy Spirit uses the lives of different people in His word to reveal, expose and identify the kind of spirit we are dealing with because as we see in Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heavenly places.
Another example is identifying the spirit which operated through king Saul that caused him to rebel against God, or the “Absalom spirit” which caused him to do and act in certain ways or the spirit of Cain that murdered his brother. Even the “Delilah spirit” that destroyed the vision of Samson and seduced him and caused his destruction.
The same spirit that controlled queen Jezebel influenced Herodias to have John the baptist beheaded because it hates God’s prophets.
You study the works of the sprits and what they caused through the lives of different people throughout the Bible by revelation of the Holy Spirit to identify it.
