In this final part of our series on the spirit of Jezebel, we’ll look at Jezebel’s demise.
Jezebel is an enemy of the apostolic because she counterfeits true prophetic operations that lead hungry believers to empty their pocketbooks for false spiritual moves that work to discredit the true five-fold ministry gifts the Lord is restoring.
But just as mature prophets are rising up with a Jehu conquering spirit to rid their lives of this menacing spirit, mature apostles are combating the false spiritual moves that Jezebel is orchestrating by refusing to compromise the truth of the Gospel for the sake of unjust gain. Notice how Paul dealt with the damsel in Thyatira.
He confronted the spirit of divination and commanded it to come out of her in the name of Jesus (Acts 16:18). This apostolic command refuted any misconception that Paul approved of her soothsaying or that his works were by the power of any spirit other than the Spirit of God.
Ultimately Jezebel’s fate – and those false prophets and apostles who follow her – is sealed. Jesus promises to throw her on a bed of anguish, bring down pressing distress and severe affliction, and strike her proper followers dead (Revelation 2:22-23 AMP).
Of course, with full knowledge of her impending doom, the spirit of Jezebel will not go down without a fight. So she remains an enemy of the apostolic.
