Article: How Jezebel’s False Doctrine Distorts God’s Grace and Truth

I came across another wonderful article today!

This was a great read and say what you want LOL I thoroughly enjoyed it.

There is just something about it that makes me leap in my spirit and gets me excited and ready to combat, tear down and over throw the enemy.

There is something about setting God’s people free seeing them healed, set free and delivered from the grips of the enemy.

I pray that God uses me as His weapon of choice to destroy the kingdom of darkness and release all of its captives… but only on the condition that they want to go.

What shocks me every time is that people refuse to believe that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal. They refuse to believe that we are in a spiritual battle and not everything is as it may seem.

There are way too many people within the body who are deceived and who are being deceived and there are people who are content with being deceived because it is easier to live a lie than to confront the lie and fight to live for the truth.

We need to understand that we are most definitely in the last days.

We cannot afford to take things lightly when the end is near Jesus is coming soon and people still have no reverence and no concern of that which is holy.

Everyone is always shouting …

“YOLO!”

… and you know what you’re right..

….You do Only Live Once…

Ephesians 5 tells us:

“8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 It is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. 14 This is why it is said:

“Wake up, sleeper,
    rise from the dead,
    and Christ will shine on you.”

15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.”

Jesus!

I pray that we all wake up and come to a full understanding and realization of who Christ is and who we are and most importantly who we are in Him.

I am not saying this as though I have arrived and I have all the answers.

I don’t know it all but I serve a God who does and like Apostle Paul said

“I press”

So like my Prophetess says

“We need to grow up”

I pray that all believers begin to crave like never before God’s spiritual milk so that by it we may grow up in our salvation.

I pray that our eyes be opened and that we come into a full understanding of God’s reality.

I pray that we sharpened and quickened in our spirit man, let us no longer be dulled and desensitized by things of our flesh and the things of this world.

In Jesus Name.

So, I have already said enough!

Enjoy and Happy Blogging.

 

How Jezebel’s False Doctrine Distorts God’s Grace and Truth

Jesus clearly warned His church against Jezebel’s false doctrines, but this ancient evil has succeeded in hiding behind the mask of control and manipulation while few recognize its deeper agenda. Indeed, most do not see Jezebel as the propagator of false doctrines that give the saints a license to sin.

The Greek word for Jezebel in Rev. 2:20 is actually a synonym for false teacher. Jezebel is teaching false doctrines. I believe one of the false doctrines Jezebel is pushing is a distorted message of God’s grace.

Here’s how it works: Jezebel first seduces you into immorality and idolatry—or drunkenness or homosexuality—by telling you it’s OK. After you’ve fallen into the trap, Jezebel’s doctrine eases your conscience by telling you your past, present and future sins are already forgiven—that there’s no need to repent. In fact, Jezebel would not repent (Rev. 2:21)—and neither do those who are seduced by this spirit’s false doctrine. This is a dangerous, even damnable error.

Jezebel Would Not Repent

Despite its good works, love, service, faith and patience, Jesus had a few things against the church at Thyatira because its leadership allowed a false prophetess named Jezebel to teach and seduce His servants to commit sexual immorality and idolatry (Rev. 2:20). Jesus said:

“And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. I will kill her children with death, and all the churches shall know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts. And I will give to each one of you according to your works” (vv. 21-23).

Jesus went on to give an encouraging word to the rest in Thyatira: “As many as do not have this doctrine, who have not known the depths of Satan, as they say, I will put on you no other burden” (v. 24). That confirms that Jezebel was guilty of teaching false doctrines. But for those who did not embrace Jezebel’s false doctrine, Jesus encouraged them, “Hold fast what you have till I come” (v. 25). In other words, don’t give into this false doctrine—don’t be deceived.

Discerning Spiritual Climates and Battling Jezebel’s Witchcrafts ….

DISCERNING SPIRITUAL CLIMATES AND BATTLING JEZEBEL’S WITCHCRAFT

by: Jennifer Leclaire

Exhaustion; that’s the best word to describe how I’ve felt for the past three weeks. And there is no natural reason for it. I’ve been sleeping plenty. Drinking lots of water. Getting plenty of exercise. (Enjoying more than my quota of Starbucks!)

Yet the morning I penned this article—despite sleeping nine hours the night before—I went back to sleep for two hours after taking my daughter to school. And when I woke up, I was still exhausted—and disgusted.

I was starting to wonder what was wrong with me. And then I got a friendly reminder revelation from the Holy Spirit: It’s witchcraft. Wicked witchcraft. How could I forget? It caught me off guard. Now I’m warning you.

Discerning Spiritual Climates
I don’t know where you live, but I live in South Florida where the spiritual climate often seems as hard as bronze. (Bronze heavens are part of the curse of the law, according to Deut. 28:23). South Florida is sometimes called the “evangelist’s graveyard.” The spiritual climate is intense.

Sometimes, it seems like our prayers hit a bronze ceiling and fall back down to the earth again. Of course, we know that’s not true because God hears the prayers of the righteous (Prov. 15:8). But prayer often feels like a heated battle when you are in a tight spiritual climate with strongholds like witchcraft and Jezebel. Sometimes you don’t even feel like praying.

The Bible talks about rebellion as the sin of witchcraft (1 Sam. 15:23). Well, South Florida is home to a cornucopia of cultural rebellion through homosexuality, an active drug scene, naughty nightclubs and the like. The Bible talks about Jezebel and her witchcrafts (2 Kings 9:22). Well, South Florida is home to a diverse population that has brought Santeria from Cuba, Voodoo from Haiti and Rastafari—and God knows what other devils—from the Caribbean islands. You might say the principalities and powers here are as eclectic as the population.

But there’s another element that contributes to the witchcraft in my region and maybe in yours too, especially during this time of year: Mary worship. My experience living here over the past decade tells me that Mary worship empowers the Jezebel spirit. Remember, I’d been exhausted for about the past three weeks. There was no natural reason for it. But there was a supernatural reason for it. It’s no coincidence that Lent started on Feb. 22—about three weeks ago.

Mary Worship and Jezebel
See, during Lent some people have a tendency to exalt Mary, the mother of Jesus. But we know that’s not God’s will. God has highly exalted Jesus and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee must bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that He is Lord, to the glory of the Father (Phil 2:9-11).

Where Mary is exalted, I believe it empowers the spirit of Jezebel and her witchcrafts. Some people in some religions refer to Mary as the “Queen of Heaven.” But Ashtoreth, the chief pagan goddess of war and sex mentioned in the Old Testament, is also known as the Queen of Heaven. And it’s the Ashtoreth spirit that’s behind Jezebel. The Lord speaks of the queen of heaven in Jeremiah 7, noting that the people of Judah were giving offerings to other gods and provoking Him to anger. The Old Testament Jezebel’s father, Ethbal, was the high priest of the goddess Ashtoreth, the queen of heaven. Can you connect the dots?

During Lent—at least in South Florida—the spirit of witchcraft gets so thick it seems like you have to cut through it with a power saw. Spiritual witchcraft (I’m not talking about practitioners of Wicca, so you can refrain from the séances and curses against me) is a spiritual force that causes you to feel like quitting and giving up. From my experience, it can make you tired in your body. The imaginations hitting your mind become more intense. And infirmities can manifest.

Indeed, witchcraft can cause you to grow weary in well-doing and even faint if you don’t know what you are dealing with—and how to battle it. So how do you battle it? You battle witchcraft like you battle every other principality, power, ruler of the darkness of this age, or spiritual host of wickedness (Eph. 6:12).

Battling Jezebel’s Witchcrafts
Always remember, we aren’t wrestling against flesh and blood, yet we do need to put on our whole armor and engage in the battle. Passivity isn’t going to deliver you from Jezebel’s witchcraft.

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,  and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled” (2 Cor. 10:3-6).

When it comes to witchcraft, we have to withstand it. The Amplified Bible says to “be firm in faith [against his onset—rooted, established, strong, immovable, and determined]” (1 Peter 5:9). It’s easy enough to give in to witchcraft, especially if you don’t know what is attacking you. So again, when you feel like giving up, when you feel tired for no reason, when you have strong confusion, when you are fighting an intense battle in your mind, and when infirmities are manifesting, it could be witchcraft. Resist it at its onset. Cast it off. Submit yourself to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you (James 4:7 AMP).

Again, submit yourself to the Lordship of Christ. Exalt His name. Thank Him for His blood. Rejoice in the Lord. This morning, before I even recognized I was covered with witchcraft I turned on some music and began to worship God. Praise and worship carry breakthrough. That’s often all it takes to change the spiritual climate in your home. And that’s where we should start because He is worthy of our adoration.

If worship doesn’t break the witchcraft, take authority over it in the name above all names. Witchcraft has to bow at the name of Jesus. But make sure you don’t have any common ground with the enemy. Repent for any rebellion in your heart and surrender your will anew to God. Remember, we are more than conquerors in Christ and no weapon formed against us can prosper—not even witchcraft. Our job is to be spiritually discerning enough to catch the devil at his onset, resist him, rebuke him and praise God for the victory. Amen.
