“He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you” (Lk 10:18, 19)
Recently, a young sister came to see me. In the natural, she has everything to be happy. She is a beautiful woman. She is married to a handsome man, a believer. They have a beautiful baby. They both have good jobs. So what is the problem? She said that for the past two months she has been depressed, for no good reason. She feels that she has not ‘achieved’ anything in her life. She feels ‘useless’ and ‘anxious’. Immediately I saw the shadow of Jezebel at her back. I spoke courage and faith into her. Spiritually, she was too passive. She needs to ‘wake up’ to her duty as a woman of God, wife and mother to fight back the enemy. I then prayed for her. I told her that she should not even come to see me if she does not have a testimony of victory and deliverance. She told me that just this few minutes of fellowship has strengthened her.
Please remember this: spiritual warfare is not easy. You need to prepare for it. Jezebel is not a coward. She is not afraid to fight. The so called ‘queen of heaven’ appears as a beautiful goddess dressed for war. There is no one who can win the battle against her except the one who is born again and Spirit filled! Selah!
She has her own peculiar strategy. Her primary strength is the power of witchcraft and pride. She manipulates and deceives; she speaks with confidence and lies without blinking an eye. This queen speaks confidently of her beauty, accomplishments and wealth. That boasting is intentional, designed to oppress and discourage others around. Her spirit produces anxiety and confusion; peace and joy are lost. Like a fly caught in the spider’s web, her victims feel hopeless to fight back and cannot retrieve their peace and joy. They remain passive and weak spiritually, waiting for death to come. This weakness is covered up with much activity on the outside. She introduced the worship of many gods alongside the worship of Jehovah producing doubt. Lastly she sends arrows of discouragement intended to weaken the servants of God. The great prophet Elijah runs away from his responsibility when she threatens him with untimely death.
This is a personal testimony: I remember once a woman in the church, she passed me by. She greeted me and moved on. She was not rude or loud. But I suddenly felt oppressed and intimidated. A wave of unexplained fear enveloped me. I felt like a man driving an old ‘Beetle’ car passed by an extra-long trailer at high speed. My body trembled at the passing wave of evil spirits. I could not have known her spirit except by this ‘close encounter’. These things are real; these are not just my imagination.
What is the solution? You need to be saved, born again by the Holy Spirit. It is not enough to just be religious or go to church. You are to be filled with the Word of God! Study your Bible. More than any other method, the Holy Spirit uses the Word of God to minister to you. One of His works is to convince you that the condemnation of satan and ‘the great prostitute’ is sure (Jn 16:8-11; Rev 17:1). Dwell in the presence of God! You will see the fall of satan as clear as Jesus saw it (Lk 10:18). Also, in particular, you need to trust God for her sure downfall! Jezebel’s death in disgrace was prophesied. The dogs eat her body and though she was a queen, she could not be given a royal burial. Put on your whole armor of God and do spiritual warfare until the darkness gives way to light and your victory is manifested. Fight to finish in the name of Him who declared on the Cross: “It is finished!” (Jn 19:30)
In Christ I declare:
I have overcome Jezebel spirit by the Blood of the Lamb and by my testimony!
I exercise my authority to trample and overcome all the evil spirits that attack me!
Nothing at all shall harm me! This is the promise of my Lord!
I plead the Blood of Jesus over my life and my family!
My victory is in the name of Jesus who declared that it is finished!
To the glory of the Lamb!
In Jesus name
