I read about a new fiction book called, “The Church of Jezebel: Hijacking the Gospel” by Derik Girdwood. It’s billed as a suspenseful novel about a murder revealed and the subsequent discoveries a young Christian woman makes as she finds out all is not what it seems in the world of the church and its missionaries. I haven’t read the book, but the author says it doesn’t have a happy ending.
Here’s a bit about the book from the author’s marketing team:
Eighteen year old Christina has entered a Bible college with the purpose of becoming a warrior for God. Her roommate, Becky, begins dating the pastor’s son and soon finds she is pregnant, but to Christina’s surprise the college announces that Becky has committed suicide and that a foundation has been formed in her name. When Christina is told by a detective that Becky has been murdered and that Christina is a suspect, a strange journey begins of a mission’s trip to Haiti. Derik Girdwood uses his tale of twists and turns to expose the dangers of faith healing, false prophets, Christ-consciousness, the Jezebel spirit and other anti-Gospel doctrines that threaten a Christian these days. The novel cites appropriate scripture along its dramatic path and is based on Genesis 3: 4-6, where the serpent tempts Eve to disobey God so that Eve and Adam can become as God.
I thought this was interesting. The spirit of Jezebel has certainly hijacked parts of the prophetic ministry. Could the jezebel spirit hijack the Church? Unfortunately, many have seen the spirit of Jezebel ruin their lives, rob their inheritance and otherwise make them miserable with manipulation and control. The good news is we don’t have to stand for the spirit of Jezebel - we can stand up to it with the authority we’ve been given in Jesus Christ. In fact, we have a responsibility to stand up to the spirit of Jezebel rather than coming under this wicked influence.
Check out my book, “The Heart of the Prophetic” to read more about Jezebel Prophets, how to avoid them - and how to avoid becoming like them.
