The Jezebel Spirit…

The Lord has been doing a work in my heart with regard to the Jezebel spirit…

I have been exposed to this spirit and have also operated in this spirit in various aspects of my life…

I have seen others operating in this spirit and watched those close to me who relate to me operating in this spirit…

A lot of the operation of this spirit is “under the radar”…

It is so hidden and so “deep” that we don’t really consciously realize what is going on but we are conscious that it is wrong – we just know this…

I have been doing some reading and focusing on the effects of the Jezebel spirit in terms of mothers not nurturing their sons and not giving the mother love which sons need to be balanced as they grow into manhood…

The mother love – the Love which God gives mothers for their sons – if not present in the upbringing of a son can lead that son into pornography and a false view, a false neediness of women…

If the mother withholds trust or only gives trust if the son is “controlled” by her – doing what she wants – then this is abuse and this leads to a hole in the sons life which can only be filled with pornography in his later life…

This intimacy between a son and his mother in those first few months of life where he is breastfed and nurtured if it is pure will give the son the nurture which he needs – the trust and the “letting go” from his mother – to make wise decisions later in life with respect to relationships with the opposite sex…

If this nurture is lacking or non-existent then he has a hole, a hole which the Jezebel spirit will gladly “fill” with all sorts of “attention” from members of the opposite sex – I am speaking from a position of hetrosexuality – which he just cannot handle – there is something so “needy” in him that any attention given from members of the opposite sex is just “drunk up”, “devoured” and “gulped down” without any “filter” or control or “protective barrier”…

He truly is open to whatever comes his way as he has this “gaping void” to fill in his heart where he has not had the experience of the love of his mother – that true acceptance and unconditional nurture from his mother – which he needs to be able to “rationally” assess the approaches of “other women”…

“Other women” being any other women in his life…

Because of Adam’s sin – my sin – I have caused a world where this is a real problem…

If I had had “stuck up for” my wife when she sinned in the Garden of Eden – I am “owning it” here – then this spirit would never have been a problem…

Because I did not – I unleashed a “weakness” which the enemy knows all about and exploits and continues to exploit in my life and in the life of countless millions of males all around the world every day…

It is our problem – the male race – it is our problem – we are the creators of our own problem – “her desire will be for you” – meaning “she will seek to control you” and “you will rule over her” – meaning, “instead of the cowardice which you showed in the Garden you will actually have to learn how to be the authority in your home – through pain and suffering you will actually have to learn how to do this without taking control – while leaving freedom for your wife to choose whether she will submit or not”, i.e. “you took control and now you will have to ‘un-learn’ this the hard way” (it is His Love which does this to bring back Godly Order in our lives – He loves us so much)…

Not that the Lord is being “mean” – He gives us these frustrations so we can see that He is opposing us…

God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble…

He opposes us and “hands us over” for our own good so we see the misery and the pain and cry out to Him to rescue us…

For so long with the Jezebel spirit I have felt that it is an impossible victory to win…

The male race is under this definitely – there is no doubt in my mind that this has been a significant stronghold which the male race has been “under”…

I personally have been “under” this spirit both in my upbringing and in my marriage…

I also have been a perpetrator of the effects of this spirit both in my upbringing and also in my marriage…

I have both been “under” it and also a perpetrator of it…

I am “doubly guilty”…

I am speaking of a position which I am coming to where I am seeing freedom from this spirit in my life and also seeing the potential for the freedom of the male and female races from the presence of this spirit in our lives…

It is not a hopeless task…

It comes from a place of admitting defeat that I am a coward, I am a weakling, I am no match for the Jezebel spirit, I am no match for the cunning, the “advances”, the allure, the shear sensuality (even in a “spiritual” way) of this spirit – it approaches you in your weakness and “gets between” your relationship with God – it literally comes between your relationship with God or your relationship with your wife or your relationship with your children or your relationship with your parents, your brothers and sisters and your family – between your relationship with anyone and it promises you to “feel good” to meet those “semi-conscious to unconscious” deep needs of being “nurtured” and “loved” and “accepted” by your mother – your first contact with “love” in the physical world…

Wow…

That place of humility where the Lord shows us we are so “deceived”, we have been “seduced” so many times by so many people and guilty of seducing so many people so many times with our “wiles” as we operate out of that perverted power base which the Jezebel spirit provides…

Hallelujah for her destruction…

Obviously it’s not a her but a him – it is a demon operating out of the feminine side of our nature – that is so sad – the deception is so strong…

O God, Thank You for the victory in the Blood – I am “walking out of this” I am not completely free – I am still suspectible – I am not healed but I see myself “walking out” of this and walking in to the light of Your Presence…

To that “strong place” where I know that You have everything which I need…

Even if I never know the love of a woman in this life – even if I never know what it means to experience that “understanding”, that “nurture”, that “acceptance”, that “unity”, that “given-ness” which I have always wanted to experience – it is OK with me…

I have yielded this to the Lord…

No one can give this to me but the Lord Alone…

My wife cannot give this to me unless it is given to her by the Lord…

I cannot give to my wife what she needs and has “always wanted” unless it is given to me by the Lord also…

Neither can I give to my children or to my parents or to my grandchildren or to my sister or to any sister or brother in the Lord what they have “always wanted” unless it is given to me by the Lord to do so…

I am “coming out” of this “Jezebel spirit” and it’s influence in my life and this “coming out” has begun with an admission that I will never beat it and can never beat it – only the Lord rising up within me can beat it and He will beat it and give me greater insight into it’s operation as time goes on and as I “walk out” of it more and more and more…

Hallelujah Lord for Your Freedom…

We worship You…

We need You…

We do not need each other…

We need You…

As You bring us across other brothers and sisters in Your time let us give to them what You have told us to give – we have that “aching void” in us hoping that they might just meet some of these “deep needs” but please Lord shut this down, turn it off, reverse it, remove it, irradicate it, the devil and his demons know our weaknesses, they are too strong for us, we can’t “stand up” and oppose them otherwise when we “sit down” (I am speaking “in the flesh”) we will be overrun by them – actually even when we’re “standing up” we’re still being overrun with them 🙂 (nothing done in the flesh makes any difference – only the Holy Spirit within us can “stand up” within us and “kick butt” in the spiritual realm :-))…

Anyway, we are free as we submit our “yet to be practically crucified” flesh up to the Lord – we don’t have to try and crucify it – we just offer it up to Him and He takes it and places it on the cross where we (our flesh) were – I was going to say was – crucified with Christ – our flesh died on the cross that day with Christ – did you know that?

Our flesh – all of us who have been chosen by God for salvation – who He has saved – was crucified with Christ on that cross that day and died…

When we came to know Him we gave it to Him – all of it – and now it’s just a matter of mopping up the decaying parts and offering them up to Him for crucifixion – practical crucifixion – and believing that He will create His new nature in us – it is in us but is being practically added to as the old is practically dying…

Thank You Jesus – once that new is created “Christ is formed in you” – then we are free from the results of the fall – in the sense that sin will no longer be our master – and if sin will no longer be our master then neither will the Jezebel spirit be our master…

Praise You Jesus…

You have overcome the world…

We are not trying to prove anything for You – only You can do anything…

When we read those sad stories of those used by the Lord “falling into sin”, getting divorced, remarrying – things which break my heart – we don’t feel “depressed” in the sense that “no one can overcome” – we just see that that was the unredeemed flesh of these ones which the Lord has already crucified with Christ and which is being practically exposed – I am speaking of those who truly know the Lord and have been born again of His Spirit – we see that there is no victory for the devil even in the one whom is tormented by demons and takes their own life there is no victory in this for the devil because Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life and those who believe in Him will live even if they die…

I am “sticking it” to the devil in this post – I am doing so because I know that if I am to fall – “the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord and He delighteth in his way though he fall, though he fall he shall not be cast down for the Lord upholdeth him with His Hand” as the song says…

There is no victory for Satan in the life – even in the failings of their flesh (which is not them as they are a new creation) – of any saint of God…

Nothing we do or do not do “taints” our new self…

It is pure…

The devil cannot taint the new self – the new person – which is who we are because God has said we are – of any saint of God…

Any saint of the Living God…

This is the place of victory…

Though we fall, though we fall we shall not be cast down for the Lord upholdeth us with His Hand…

The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand. (Psalm 37:23-24 KJV)

The steps of a man are established by the LORD, And He delights in his way. When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong, Because the LORD is the One who holds his hand. (Psalm 37:23-24 NASB)

When he falls he will not be hurled headlong because the Lord is the One who holds his hand…

O Praise You Jesus…

Who is stronger than You?

Who would I rather have holding my hand?

No one…

No one is like unto You O Lord…

No one…

You are the Lover of my soul…

“My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand.” (John 10:29 NASB)

About andrew james horton

Hi, my name is Andrew James Horton... I am a Kiwi (New Zealander), born in Christchurch (05 September 1971), now in my mid-forties (I feel so old saying that)... I am blessed to be married with five children and six grandchildren... :-) I am at present a Principal Structural Engineer, Director working in Christchurch, New Zealand... I am passionate about prophetic intercession and about revival both in New Zealand and throughout the world... I am passionate to pray that the Church, the Body of Christ, the Bride of Christ, will be all that He - the Lord Jesus Christ - desires her to be in our generation... I felt that the Lord gave me the name of this blog site, "a house of prayer for the nations - prophetic intercession for worldwide revival" and wanted me to "put it out there" and start recording the prayers which are on my heart to pray in the hope that others would also be encouraged to share the prayers which are on their hearts to pray and that in the unity of the Spirit we could participate together in this activity in different locations around the world as He leads us... If the Lord leads you, let's join in prayer for the Lord's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven in our generation... Love in the Lord, Andrew

  1. No one likes to be controlled…

    There is nothing more powerful than control other than the Love of God…

    Freedom is in God…

    Love is in God…

    Unconditional Love is from God…

    Greed is stronger than fear…

    That desire which wants more – that desire which “wants” full stop…

    There is nothing stronger than greed other than the Love of God…

    I am sorry Lord for every form of control which I have ever exercised over anyone…

    Anyone at all…

    Expectations…

    Subtle expectations…

    Overt expectations…

    “I’ll do this if you do that”…

    I’m sorry Lord…

    “I’ll do this because You’ve told me to”…

    That is my new “mantra” – not that I like that word – but that is my new “modus operandi”…

    I’ll do this because You’ve told me to not because someone else has told me to, not because it is a “politically correct” thing to do or will save me from the wrath of my wife or my children or my grandchildren or my parents or my friends or my colleagues or my boss or my CEO…

    I’ll do what you’ve told me to do…

    I will “hear” everything which anyone else “tells” me but I will offer it up to You and if I don’t hear the same thing from You I will leave it “parked” where it belongs – with You…

    I do not have to worry about it, think about it, chew it over, meditate on it, I don’t have to reject it either… I just need to give it to You…

    No one can “force” me to do anything…

    I have no excuses left…

    No one can force me to do anything…

    No one can manipulate me…

    I choose to let people do this to me…

    And I choose not to let people do this to me – from now on…

    I might not practice this perfectly but I have chosen it…

    This means I’m suddenly standing in a very “high and scary” position – I feel like I’m at the pinnacle of some high mountain about to “tip off” the edge…

    I have no “defense mechanisms”, I’m aware I can be attacked from any angle and I’m aware I will be attacked in the major areas – the “over the top” areas – where the enemy will buffet me and try and make me “recluse” back into that position of relative “safety” where I’m allowing control to “have its way” with me…

    But I cannot do that anymore…

    I will not be controlled…

    God does not control me…

    Yes, He is in control of me but He creates the willingness in me to submit to Him so that He can control me…

    He is not “putting my hand up behind my back” threatening me and forcing me to follow Him or to submit to Him – He is Free and His Path is Freedom…

    He creates the desire in me to do His Will…

    He does not threaten me or give me “deadlines” – He is the Perfect Employer and I work for Him…

    I know that this will be tested…

    I will be tested but I will come through as gold – as the Lord has promised me that I will know Him and this is the only path to know Him – to come into His Presence and have “no other gods before Him”…

    Fear is not stronger than Love…

    Fear – in the sense of “Fear of Punishment” – nothing is stronger than Love and Love is Unconditional…

    “If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13 NIV)

    The power which will break the Jezebel spirit is the power of God’s Unconditional – no strings attached – Love…

    True Love is awesome…

    And God is the Author of True Love…

    True Love says, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore I have drawn you with lovingkindness.” (Jeremiah 31:3b NASB)

    True Love says, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” (Hebrews 13:5b NIV)

    True Love says, “All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.” (John 6:37 NIV)

    True Love tells us through the Apostle Paul, “Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his unlimited patience as an example for those who would believe on him and receive eternal life. Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.” (1 Timothy 1:15-17 NIV)

    The Grace Revolution is about the Freedom to receive the Unconditional Love of God knowing that in that place – that true place of understanding the Grace of God – you are set free – you are set free from your sin…

    Nothing you can do can stop God Loving you and finishing the work which He has begun in your life – whether you are faithless or whether you are faithful – you are safe because you are going to grow in the Knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ because that is what He has said you will do…

    No control…

    Divine Plan…

    Divine Proclamation…

    “for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.” (1 John 5:4 NIV)

    Who is it who has been born of God?

    “Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves the father loves his child as well. This is how we know that we love the children of God: by loving God and carrying out his commands. This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.” (1 John 5:1-5 NIV)

    The one who believes that Jesus is the Christ, the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God – remembering that the Son of God had no beginning and no end (Hebrews 7:3), i.e. that the Son of God is the I AM – God Himself – the one who believes that Jesus is God has been born of God and that one – in that simplicity of the trust and the surrender which comes at regeneration – will overcome the world…

    The path may be long and be hard and depression and despair and “giving up” and even disillusionment may creep in and even remain for seasons of your life but He will carry you – He will carry you because He Loves you…

    It doesn’t matter who you are, how far you have fallen, He will carry you if you belong to Him – if you have been born of Him, He is Your Father and He will never forsake you, never leave you, never abandon you, He will carry you all the way to Glory…

    For His Name is the Lord…

    He is the Great I AM…

    He will never leave you or forsake you…

    Nothing – no threat – that anyone can ever make to you – no deprivation which they may “threaten”, no “holding back” or “withholding” can ever compare to the Love which the Lord offers us…

    There is a huge offer from the Lord – a huge offer that He will be with us – and if He is with us who can be against us – He has everything we need – He is Enough…

    He is more than Enough – He is All Sufficient…

    More than Sufficient He is Over and Above Everything which we will ever need…

    Even if we have His Peace and nothing else we have more than we need to carry us through anything which we could ever be asked to go through by our Loving Heavenly Father…

  2. The fear of being controlled comes from our love of the praise of men…

    We all want to be loved…

    Part of being loved is to be accepted…

    Part of being accepted is to be validated in our thinking…

    To have people agree with us and not question our integrity…

    To not question our rationality or our sanity…

    When these things are withheld if the desire to be accepted or receive the praise of men is too strong then it can lead to a submission to the spirit of control – part of the Jezebel spirit – to “enable” that “flow” of acceptance…

    The only thing is that the enemy understands this and he will not give that acceptance as he is incapable of giving it…

    He can give flattery, smothering relationships, coddling, false love, false acceptance, conditional love and over-inflation of our egos but he can not give genuine, real, unconditional love…

    Only the Lord can give that…

    If we look to men – for any of the above – we will be disappointed…

    If we look to God for all of the above He will take us through a process of humbling and removal of our flesh and the creation of His Life within us from which He can begin to pour His Unconditional Love into our regenerated hearts…

    The hearts which He has created in all holiness and righteousness of the truth…

    Nothing of the flesh counts for anything…

    It is pure poison…

    We need to surrender all our desires to the Lord – all of them – even the ones we believe are of Him – so that He can destroy and sift through them to discover which are of Him and which will not remain…

    We do not know our own hearts – only He knows our hearts…

    What is established in one human being – through the power of intercession – can be replicated in the hearts of many thousands of human beings all around the world – that is our goal in intercession…

    Go to the heart – in ourselves – and get “clean” and then as the Lord “comes upon us” we can pray into the hearts of all of our brothers and sisters all around the world what He “creates” in us – the cleanness which He creates in us…

    That is why Jesus – who was already “perfect” – prayed “for their sakes I sanctify Myself that they also may be sanctified in the truth”…

    He laid down His Life unto death that we may partake in His Holiness…

    He was “perfected” – even though He was already perfect – through sufferings…

    This process of practically offering up our hearts to the Lord for Him to cleanse our innermost beings from the presence of the flesh and the demonic entities which cling to the flesh is the act of spiritual worship which the Lord requires of us…

    This “I die daily” process is the process of practical worship in the believers life…

    It is this process which brings great joy to the Lord…

    Great joy to the Lord…

    He sees our struggles…

    He could have saved us and made us “practically perfect” in the blink of an eye but He chose not to…

    It is the “walking through” of this “messy relationship” in which we see His Love and Acceptance so clearly – we see the flesh – the remains of the flesh – and yet we see His Unconditional Acceptance of who we really are in the Spirit – in the new self – and we see that the power of sin is broken in us – who are born again to a new and living way by the power of God working in us…

  3. If we suppress the flesh – what remains of the flesh – in our lives – it’s outworking – then we actually find ourselves serving Satan…

    The suppression of the flesh, i.e. “burying it” “deep down” and hoping no one will notice it, hoping that we won’t “notice it” actually renders us inactive in the service of the Lord – turns us into “religious christians” who have an “appearance of godliness” but deny its true power…

    When the process of the death of the flesh is “out there” and “real” and we’re “letting it out” and letting the Lord “deal with it” then the scripture is true in which the Lord says, “Behold great darkness shall cover the people but the Lord shall arise… Arise, shine, for your light has come and the glory of the Lord shall be seen upon you”…

    In the place of humility where we admit what we are – we are not trying to hide and be “good christians” – but admit what we are – in that place the power of God is present to heal…

    The Jezebel spirit is defeated with true humility…

    True humility to “walk out” the brokenness which is present in our lives – not to try and “hide it” or “bury it” or “suppress it” but to walk it out and let the Lord destroy it as we don’t try but trust Him to change us into His Image…

    I have been walking through this process for a number of years now…

    It was “freaky” when I began…

    It was a dropping of my “religious facade” my “good christian image” – which was quite good in the eyes of many – and a surrender to let the Lord change me – radically change me from the inside out so that I naturally would do the things which He wanted me to without thought or effort on my behalf…

    A laying down of my “image” and “reputation” so that He could “come through” and make me what He wanted me to be…

    Things in me which were “undealt with” were exposed – and are still being exposed…

    I’ve looked “stupid” a number of times…

    I’ve been “deceived” a number of times…

    I’ve shared things with brothers and a sister which are not “flattering” about myself but I have done this to expose in myself and come clean with myself and my brothers and this sister the things which have been going on in my life…

    I have been misunderstood by some of the brothers which I’ve shared with – too deep for them to handle but I know that the Lord told me to share with these brothers for whom it was too deep and I know He taught me through their “rejection” of what I shared that their approval was not what I was seeking but it was obedience to Him that I was seeking – although I wasn’t aware of that at the time…

    The sister I shared with also I felt the same sort of concern about acceptance but I knew that even if my sharing jeopardised our relationship I had to be obedient to what I felt the Lord wanted me to do and to share…

    The scripture says, “confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed”…

    When we do this – a complete loss of “face” before our brothers and sisters – we are set free…

    There’s something powerful about “naming” what we are in the flesh…

    Not just saying, “I’m a terrible sinner”, but actually naming what we are…

    Owning it…

    This is true repentance – not confession only – but in that act it releases true repentance and an ability for that sin, that stronghold, to die…

    If we have a peace from the Lord to confess to someone we trust the inner workings of our flesh and be honest and know then that those ones could use that information against us or could publish it anywhere they so choose but trust God that this is what He is telling us to do and know that we are constrained by the Holy Spirit to do it – then this is powerful with God…

    I have experienced this and I know that it is powerful…

    There is such a release after you’ve confessed…

    You’ve already confessed to God but now you’ve also confessed to your brothers and sisters…

    There is no mystery about you – there is no “secrecy” about you – you are what you are and any way in which the Lord uses you those brothers and those sisters will know that it is all the Lord and not you – its a humbling place but a place of security…

    This is the place in which I want to live…

    Lord enable me to always live in this place…

    Thank You Lord…

    Enable Your Church to always live in this place…

    Every one of us…

    Every one of us in every area…

    No secrets…

    None…

    Enable us Lord…

    Release the Anointing of Transparency over us…

    The Armour of Light as You showed me a number of years ago – is to walk in transparency before You – that is our protection – strange armour you might think – but think about it – we serve a “strange” God 🙂 who’s ways are higher than our ways and who’s thoughts are deeper than our thoughts – He opposes the proud – those who “bury” or “suppress” or “deny” the continued existance of “flesh” in their lives – but He gives grace to the humble – those who admit it’s there, confess it, before Him and before men if He so leads and walk in brokenness before Him – to the end of themselves…

    This is the position which I would like to walk in for the rest of my life…

    Come with me on this journey and let us see what God will do on our behalf…

    “Come behold the works of the Lord…”

  4. I break the power of the spirit of Jezebel over all the men who live on the face of this planet in the Name of Jesus…

    Not me but Jesus within me, in the Mighty Name of Jesus…

    Not I but Christ…

    Holy Jesus, we will not be enslaved any longer to her wiles, to her craftiness, to her manipulation of our weaknesses, to her manipulation of the results of the fall in our lives…

    We are free, I speak this in the Spirit – we are free…

    We are free to choose the Way, the Truth and the Life which is in Christ Jesus…

    The way has been opened through the Blood of Jesus and we are free from the domination of the spirit of Jezebel in our lives, in our cities, in our territories, in our countries and in this earth…

    For this final period – where the Church is still on earth (prior to the coming of Christ) – the spirit of Jezebel will not rule over the Church of the Living God…

    We will not serve her, we will not serve satan through her, we will not bow down to her, we will be free to serve the Living God…

    We will be free to love each other – our brothers and sisters in the Lord – with the Love which comes from God…

    Not a perverted “sexual” or “sensual” type of love – even in a “spiritual” sort of way but in a “yielded” – sexual desire on the altar – sort of way – we will be free – the men in the House of God – to Love with purity our sisters and our brothers – to Love with purity our mothers and fathers in the faith…

    We will be free…

    Jezebel has fallen…

    The sons and daughters of the Living God in this chosen generation will not suffer or be in servitude towards Jezebel…

    I am speaking in faith…

    What I am saying will come to pass…

    She is defeated…

    The Church shall walk in liberty and freedom…

    The Church shall not walk in bondage any more..

    There will be no bondage in the Church in this chosen generation…

    The Lord will receive a bride who is without spot or blemish or any such thing…

    He will receive a chaste bride one who has dedicated herself to Him and divorced all other suitors removing them from her presence…

    The King shall have a chaste bride and not one overcome with the woes of the world – weighed down with the dissipation which satan brings…

    The enemy is defeated…

    He has only temporal pleasures to offer…

    He has nothing of substance to offer…

    He has nothing in comparison to the fullness of the Holy Spirit…

    He has nothing to offer me and he has nothing to offer you…

    Nothing…

    I stand clear of the devil and let him be judged…

    I stand clear of the Jezebel spirit and let it be judged…

    I stand clear of the antichrist spirit and the religious spirit and let them be judged…

    I stand clear of the python spirit, the leviathan spirit, the spirit of apathy, the spirit of unbelief, the luciferian spirit, the spirit of satan and I let them be judged…

    I stand free of the baal spirit and the spirit of molech and the queen of heaven and I let them be judged…

    Judge them Lord…

    Judge them Lord…

    Judge them Lord…

    You promise in Your Word that You will starve all the gods of the earth…

    You promise this…

    Hallelujah…

    O Worship You Jesus…

    You will starve them in this chosen generation…

    The time has come for the Lord to arise with Healing in His Wings – the time of the latter rain has come – and He has prepared for Himself a bride who will make herself ready…

    She will prepare herself to meet her Bridegroom…

    She will prepare herself to meet her Creator…

    O Hallelujah!!!

    Hallelujah Jesus!!!

    You will be met by a bride who has made herself ready – You will receive great glory on earth from Your bride in this chosen generation…

    She is now making herself ready…

    She is putting off from among her all manner of wickedness and she is coming back to her First Love – she is making preparations to meet her Lord, to meet her Maker, to meet her Creator, to meet the One who Loved her and released her from her sins by His Blood – O Hallelujah!!!

    My rejoicing has begun…

    Victory is Won…

    My rejoicing has begun…

    Hallelujah!!! For the Lord our God the Almighty Reigns…

    Let us rejoice and be glad and give the Glory unto Him…

    The Heavens declare the Glory of God…

  5. I have been drawn back to this word by Tommy Hicks – http://crash.ihug.co.nz/~revival/hicks.html – over the last few days…

    It is linked to what I have been experiencing above (I am not alone) – it is linked to what the Church has been experiencing above (there are ones from the Church who the Lord has placed this burden on and they have been interceding – we are not alone)…

    We are in a place where the giant in Tommy’s vision is endeavouring to “rise up” and break off itself all the satanic bondages which it has been encumbered by…

    We are at a place where it is near to raising its hands to heaven and experiencing the transformation where it truly loses its life and gets “underneath” in a very hidden way in prayer and lifts up all its members so that the power of God can fall from heaven on the “lowest place”…

    For this is where the power from heaven will fall – on the lowest place…

    That is why the giant needs to lose its form and become “nothing” in the eyes of the world or in the eyes of its neighbours or even in the eyes of its “christian friends” – it needs to become nothing, become “unseen” so that in that “lowest place” it can “cry out” for the salvation of the world and the salvation in the true biblical sense of the Church herself…

    This is where we are right now…

    In that “trying to be free” stage and what I see is that it is not “one man” or “one woman” or “one group” who will do this but it is as thousands of members of the Body join in seeing what the Lord is revealing to us collectively – seeing this “lowest place” where we become “nothing” and let Christ live through us even if that is not very “spectacular” – that we as the Body of Christ will break through into that space which I believe will be the last major move of God before He comes again to earth to reign as King from Jerusalem…

    It will be what Tommy saw it to be…

    I have a witness in my spirit about this – I have seen similar myself in a deep knowing in the Spirit – and I know that these things will happen and that we will witness them in our lifetime – the time is short but the Lord will receive the Glory before He comes again to reign…

    What do we do to prepare ourselves for these events?

    There is nothing that we can do to position ourselves for these events…

    The Holy Spirit is the Orchestrator of this Revival and He will do it in His time…

    We cannot help Him – we can give ourselves to Him and submit ourselves to Him but He is the One who will do what He will do…

    He has told me to do less…

    It feels strange to do “less” but as I drop my desire to do “more” I find the Lord does more through me…

    Each of us just needs to find before the Lord what it is that He is calling us to do and do that…

    None of us can make any of this happen…

    When He speaks to us to act we must act – any action which occurs without His Instruction is presumption and this will not be blessed by God…

    We are truly not islands in the sense that once freed from “neediness” the Lord will place us in teams to work together for His Glory – first the “neediness” needs to be broken then we are enabled to work together “side by side” with others for His Glory…

    We are experiencing this death and this Life, the Life of Christ, will flow through us more and more as the death to the old self continues more and more and becomes a way of life – to give up things to God for Him to remove them from us – He can achieve more in a day through a yielded vessel who has patiently waited for Him to cleanse him than we could achieve in a lifetime of striving in the flesh to improve ourselves…

    The Lord has promised that we will all reach the unity of the faith, a mature man and this will happen – this will happen before He comes again – this is the generation in which we find ourselves…

    He is at work and He will not be silenced…

    His will will be done on earth as it is in heaven…

    He will be Glorified…

    Yes, at the end – after the devil has done everything he can – He, God, will be Glorified and we will reign with Him for a thousand years in the land He promised to us – through Abraham – through the Seed of Abraham, Jesus Christ our Lord, so many years ago…

    The meek shall inherit the earth…

    We – those who have been made to learn of the meekness of Christ – shall inherit the earth…

    Hallelujah!!!

    For the Lord our God the Almighty Reigns…

    and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood–and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father– to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.” (Revelation 1:5-6 NASB)

    We are so grateful for the Blood…

    We love You Lord…

    We are so grateful for the Blood…

    We are so sorry for our sin – we are so grateful for the Blood…

    We are purified by the Blood which You shed…

    We are Holy and Righteous in Your Sight through the Blood which You Shed and we love You because You first Loved us while we were yet sinners – indicating that we are no longer sinners in Your Sight but saints by calling – that You died for us…

    We are forever indebted to You for our lives…

    We lay them at Your Feet…

    I know what I am doing here…

    I lay my life at Your Feet…

    Use me Lord…

    My death may be soon or distant…

    Use me Lord…

    May every day count for Your Glory…

    Use us all Lord – in Your Kingdom – in the Mighty Name of Jesus…

    I let go…

    Have Your Way…

    Have Your Way with us…

    Your Bride, in Jesus Name, Amen…

  6. I have an update on the above with respect to the jezebel spirit…

    When you sense that someone is appealing to your need – to the things in you which you need – the “weaknesses” which you know that you have – offering to “fill” these needs for you or telling you that they understand these needs and want to fill them – if you just get that “yucky feeling” that this is “not the real thing” – then trust your “gut instincts”…

    I see that the jezebel spirit is very much like a “limpet”…

    Sucks up so close to you and won’t let you go…

    Plays games with you…

    Plays on your need…

    Trys to get you to need it…

    Once it can get you to need it it’s like an octopus with its tentacles all around you and you don’t want to let it go because it gives you comfort…

    False comfort…

    And then it turns and condemns you for needing it and accuses you of failures which lead you into condemnation…

    It’s kind of like “all over you” and then withdraws and sees if you “come crawling back” and then if you do condemns you and then keeps coming, keeps coming back, back and then withdraws, kind of keeping you on the end of a string…

    You know its not of the Lord because its not freely given and it has conditions…

    It can’t accept you as you are…

    It has demands…

    Hoops that you must jump through…

    Once it gets control you can’t hear from God for yourself…

    It shuts your ears and keeps you in torment…

    I had a dream once – it was while I was overseas (from what I can remember – or maybe it was while we were still in Kerikeri)…

    Anyway in the dream there was this camel – seemed docile and harmless…

    I was looking at the camel and I was just unsure as to what it was all about…

    then all of a sudden the picture changed and I saw that the camel had changed into a huge spider with furry legs – the spider was scary…

    then the picture changed again and the head of the spider changed into a human skull…

    which was on fire and very angry…

    the spider appeared to have me pinned right under its eyes (with it’s body towering over mine and its legs like an enclosure with me in the middle)…

    I woke up and as you’d imagine was very freaked out…

    I knew at the time that the camel was lust – seemed pretty harmless, seemed pretty docile…

    When it turned into the spider I saw the sinister side to it…

    When it turned into the human skull which was on fire I could see where it would lead…

    and then when it kind of had me within its reach I saw how much danger I was in…

    This shows the interaction of the jezebel spirit with us in terms of its bait – which appears docile enough – not too bad – and then it unmasks itself as the “scary spider” and you feel that you can’t escape and then it gets worse with the skull and the fire – it was an angry face (a masculine face) which was very much alive although being completely dead – and very angry (I remember that quite clearly) – and then the position of intimidation and apparent helplessness…

    The amazing thing was though – apart from the fact that I was freaked out – was that it didn’t touch me and it didn’t devour me…

    I woke up this morning early and as I was talking to the Lord this dream/picture came back to my mind and I saw again as per my previous picture which I shared under the Soul Ties post that as the Blood of Jesus flowed through me out to everyone – even those who came to me as believers but whom were really serving the devil and were actually trying to “trip me up” – I saw that as the Blood of Jesus flowed through me – that even if that spider was permitted to bite me that the Blood of Jesus would not allow its poison to spread in my system but that my system would overpower the poison and the contact of the Blood with the poison in the spiders stinger would actually cause the spider to flee…

    Jezebel cannot stand against the Blood…

    Yes, we are weak in our emotions…

    This is “her” (all demons are masculine) entry point…

    The weakness in the emotions…

    but as we admit this to the Lord – as I did last night and as I woke up early this morning – He is enabled to come through and deliver us…

    As we give up to Him all these weaknesses He has an appointed time where He will heal us – I’ve seen things before and felt deliverance only to find a few weeks or even days or whatever later when the Anointing of that experience or whatever lifts that I still have issues…

    It’s like you’re carried initially and then you’ve got to “walk through it” in terms of the actual deliverance and then there’s the layers upon layers of deliverance you go through…

    I suppose expressing this will help others who are also going through similar…

    Jezebel uses sexuality and the weakness of our natural human desire for intimacy to “shut us down”…

    She offers much but delivers less than nothing…

    She delivers emptiness…

    Condemnation…

    Discouragement…

    Worthlessness…

    Hopelessness…

    and eventually death…

    She is a mean task master…

    We cannot hold on to any part of our pleasure – in the sexual or intimacy area – and be delivered from her…

    Especially in the sexual area…

    This is why she is so strong…

    Because of the natural unwillingness of men (and women) to yield these areas to the Lord…

    She attacks the most powerful part of our personalities which God has given us – our desire and ability to trust others and commit ourselves to others – either in friendship, brother and sister relationships or in marriage or sexual relationships…

    She perverts all that is holy while promising fulfilment – deeper fulfilment than we have ever known before…

    She is a deceiver…

    Deception is her “hook”…

    She is “soft” and “gracious”…

    “Kind” and “caring”…

    And then she turns…

    Only the Lord can help us…

    Even to show us whether something is linked to the sexual area…

    We just sense it – we can’t put our finger on it – but it makes us feel sensual or “yucky” – a false intimacy – and we know it is not from the Lord…

    The most horrible part about it is that we are so “empty” that we would rather receive this “poisoned love” than the “nothing” which we are experiencing – she preys on the weak – she is evil – the power behind her is the power of hell…

    Lust in all her forms is “under” her…

    But there is power in the Blood…

    The Lord will not permit this spirit to stand in this generation…

    I know that as the Blood fills me all who are not of the Lord will be repelled from me…

    I know this…

    I can be loving to all who are attracted to me (rightly or wrongly attracted to me that is)…

    Through the Blood…

    Those who are not of the Lord will be repelled…

    Maybe not straight away but eventually they will be…

    Only those who are for the Lord will be left…

    This is my hope…

    This is my protection…

    Love in the Lord,

    Andrew

  7. I have something further to add regarding the Jezebel spirit…

    There is a movement “going around” which seems to embrace Jesus as our husband but not in the true biblical, spiritual meaning of the term (“For I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy; for I betrothed you to one husband, so that to Christ I might present you as a pure virgin.” 2 Corinthians 11:2 NASB) but with a sexual or sensual connotation…

    This is also the working of the Jezebel spirit…

    I know of two Christian women – both whom I highly respect – who have, once each, told me that they were viewing Jesus as their husband and both were “single” at the time…

    I believe this “misunderstanding” or “confusion” was genuine in their case…

    I do not believe they were endeavouring to propogate “error” with their expression of their belief but I believe none the less that this view is error and very damaging in our walk with the Lord…

    When I think of the fact that Jesus is my Husband (“Or do you not know that the one who joins himself to a prostitute is one body with her? For He says, “THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH.” But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him.” 1 Corinthians 6:16-17 NASB) or that I am betrothed to Him and will be presented as a pure virgin (as per 2 Corinthians 11:2) I am thinking in terms of Christ and the Church and that is it (I am a part of the Church) – I am thinking spiritually (“For when they rise from the dead, they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are like angels in heaven.” Mark 12:25 NASB)…

    I am not thinking in a sexual fashion…

    As it would be for women to be thinking of Jesus as their husband in a sexual fashion…

    I believe this “perversion” is from the Jezebel spirit…

    A smutty, sensual perversion…

    Aimed again at those who are true believers in our Lord Jesus Christ to try and give them an outlet for their unmet sexual desires as they wait for the Lord to bring them a godly husband or in the case of men an attack to bring in (or legitimize) homosexual lust into (in) their lives “in the name of” the Lord (an open door)…

    Deliver us all Lord from this perversion in the Mighty Name of Jesus…

    Thank You Lord…

    You are my Father…

    You are my Lord…

    You are my Husband (“But I want you to understand that Christ is the head of every man, and the man is the head of a woman, and God is the head of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 11:3 NASB) and I submit to You as my Head Lord Jesus, I bow before You as my Head, You are my Head and I submit to You Alone, I line up under You as You line up under the Father, I take my place in Your Order and I rejoice in Your Godly Order in the Mighty Name of Jesus…

    Hallelujah!!!

    That was a moment for me…

    I’d never seen before that I submit myself under Christ and He submitted Himself (although He is God) under His Father (“and God is the head of Christ”) – what humility from our Lord Jesus Christ…

    Equal with God but submitted Himself under the Father to show us (men and women) what it means to be in Divine Order…

    Hallelujah, Praise the Lord…

    The revelation is coming…

    Men and women will see this…

    Hallelujah, Praise the Lord…

    They will see this and they will be released…

    Hallelujah, Praise the Lord…

    You Jesus are my Soon and Coming King…

    and the living One; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades. (Revelation 1:18 NASB)

    Jesus has the keys of death and Hades – this means that no one dies unless He permits it…

    This means that no demon operates unless He permits it…

    We see in Revelation an amazing scripture…

    And another angel, a second one, followed, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who has made all the nations drink of the wine of the passion of her immorality.” (Revelation 14:8 NASB)

    A final “finishing off” of this spirit is yet still future but in this generation as we understand how to “get free” we will see a freedom in the Church from this spirit…

    This spirit does not have the power to take our lives – Elijah feared it and ran for his life – Jesus holds the keys of death and Hades…

    Hades is where the demons come from…

    The gates of Hades will not stand against the Church…

    Why is this?

    Cos Jesus holds the keys to death and Hades…

    No one can kill us unless Jesus permits it…

    We have feared death…

    We have feared the Jezebel spirit…

    We have nothing to fear…

    Our lives are hidden with Christ in God…

    Jesus holds the keys to death and Hades…

    The Gates of Hades will not stand against the Church…

    As we submit ourselves to Christ and our wives submit themselves to us and we all submit ourselves to God the operation of this spirit will be extinguished in the Church…

    It’s fire will be put out…

    It’s all about Authority…

    I see it very clearly…

    Christ was equal to the Father – “Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,” (Philippians 2:6 NIV) but submitted Himself under God the Father giving us forever an example of how equality has nothing to do with Authority and Godly Order…

    Men and women are equal in the Lord…

    There is no question there – “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28 NASB) – but there is a difference in function, there is a difference in Authority Structures – even Jesus we read of – “But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone.” (Mark 13:32 NASB) – wow! it is all so clear – it is a submission to Godly Order for the Christian husband and the Christian wife to lead their lives as ordained by the Lord in the same way that Christ submits to the Father, so the wife is to submit herself to the husband in the Lord…

    So powerful…

    I see it…

    So powerful…

    I am to submit myself to Jesus – He is my Head…

    He has submitted Himself to the Father – He is His Head…

    My wife is to submit herself to me as her head (on earth) but her Head (in heaven) is Christ…

    This is so awesome…

    Godly Order…

    All free…

    No compulsion…

    No one compelled Jesus to submit to His Father as His Head – He did so freely…

    He did so willingly…

    Upon seeing this truth I have submitted myself willingly, freely to Christ as my Head…

    The Anointing flows down from the Head – the Father, Jesus, the Christian husband, the Christian wife and then to the children – as God wanted godly offspring (“Has not [the LORD] made them one? In flesh and spirit they are his. And why one? Because he was seeking godly offspring. So guard yourself in your spirit, and do not break faith with the wife of your youth.” Malachi 2:15 NIV)

    I am so sorry Lord for all the damage that I have done to my wife and to my marriage

    I am so sorry Lord…

    Thank You that You have given us godly offspring – in the spirit (the spiritual realm) they are yours and the grandchildren with them – remove the remains of the Jezebel spirit from my marriage and from my life – forgive me Lord for not taking my place as the head of the household by submitting myself to Christ and giving the example to my wife, children and grandchildren of what this means…

    Forgive me for all expectations which I have had on my wife, children and grandchildren…

    I am so sorry Lord…

    I am so sorry…

    Set her free (and set them free) to do the things which You place on her (their) heart (hearts) to complete…

    Thank You Jesus – I see this…

    You are breaking down the dam between us (between us all)

    You are bringing unity – Authority flows through submission…

    Authority is given in submission…

    I see this clearly now…

    Jesus submitted and He was Anointed…

    The Oil flows down Aaron’s beard running down onto all below – Life Forevermore…

    I see it now…

    I sumbit to You Lord Jesus as You submitted to Your Father – You are my Perfect Example and I love and respect You for Your Submission…

    For Your Submission to Your Father – in Love and Trust and Respect You bowed Your Head and submitted to Him in Perfect Trust as do I to You right now – I can do nothing else – from where I am standing – seeing what I am seeing – I can do nothing else…

    Praise You Lord Jesus…

    I worship You Lord…

    I Love You…

    Andrew

  8. I feel to add something yet further on this topic – I seem to be doing all the talking on this thread 🙂 – and that is to do with what Jesus had to say about this topic in Revelation…

    “And to the angel of the church in Thyatira write: The Son of God, who has eyes like a flame of fire, and His feet are like burnished bronze, says this: ‘I know your deeds, and your love and faith and service and perseverance, and that your deeds of late are greater than at first. But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. I gave her time to repent, and she does not want to repent of her immorality. Behold, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of her deeds. And I will kill her children with pestilence, and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds. But I say to you, the rest who are in Thyatira, who do not hold this teaching, who have not known the deep things of Satan, as they call them—I place no other burden on you. Nevertheless what you have, hold fast until I come. He who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, TO HIM I WILL GIVE AUTHORITY OVER THE NATIONS; AND HE SHALL RULE THEM WITH A ROD OF IRON, AS THE VESSELS OF THE POTTER ARE BROKEN TO PIECES, as I also have received authority from My Father; and I will give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’ (Revelation 2:18-29 NASB)

    This is quite a solemn post…

    All I know in my spirit is that there was a woman – a figure head – in the specific church at Thyatira at that time who was being used by the Jezebel spirit but that this scripture applies to all churches for all times where the operation of the Jezebel spirit is occuring at any point in time…

    I know in my heart that the Lord hates the operation of this spirit in His Church…

    He hates it at all levels…

    He hates it in Christian marriage also…

    He hates it in Christian parenting…

    I know that the principle of giving the victim/perpetrator of this Jezebel spirit time to repent is also still on His heart…

    But equally I know that if the victim/perpetrator of this Jezebel spirit is not willing to repent that He will remove them from this earth…

    After a time of chastening if there is no response, He will remove them from this earth…

    I know this…

    I feel it as I type…

    If those of us who are on the receiving end of the actions of this spirit through someone we love or through someone we are involved with through a Church connection stand in the gap for this one either of two things will happen…

    Either they will be released or they will be removed from this earth…

    Yes, during this process we will be incredibly attacked…

    We will come to a place where we’ve laid down our lives…

    After this the Lord – as we intercede – will give us a release that He is going to act…

    Either the person will repent and line up under Godly Authority and in line with His Order or if they will not they will be removed from this earth…

    The person under the control of the Jezebel spirit is not capable of lining up or submitting under Godly Authority or Godly Order…

    They just can’t do it…

    They are a hinderance to God’s work but make out to those around them that they are “spot on” and as such they lead many astray…

    The Lord has to remove them for the true Authority – in those He has established it, i.e. the true submission to Himself, to be heard and established…

    It saddens me to write this but there is a time coming and now is where we will experience the fulfilment of this scripture in our lifetime and in our generation…

    The fruit of the Jezebel spirit needs to be removed for the truth of the Unity of the Gospel to be expressed in our generation…

    It has been prayed for…

    It is spoken for…

    He – and He alone – will now do it…

    We will see it and we will fear (reverentially) and tremble before Him…

    We will submit or we will die…

    We will line ourselves up under Him and His Authority Structures or we will die…

    He will deal individually in our hearts to show each of us what these Authority Structures are in our individual cases…

    We can take from scripture that He will make it plain and He will give time to repent…

    He decides how long…

    He makes the choices…

    He will remove all who do not repent in the time which He allocates…

    He will set free all who have submitted and repented from the abuse and oppression of those who will not so that we can serve Him in freedom all the days of our lives after we’ve suffered and learnt all that we need to from being abused by those who are under this spirit…

    There is release and freedom…

    It’s all in His timing…

    It behoves us to be sure that we are surrendered and submitted to Him and all who He places on our hearts to voluntarily line up under…

    If we are in this position we are in a position of safety…

    What He does with those who will not submit and line up is His prerogative…

    He will not leave us “hanging” forever…

    He knows that the call He has on our lives depends on the “lining up” of all parties accordingly…

    If this will not occur then He will make alternative arrangements on our behalf…

    We do not undertake this…

    We do not wish for this…

    But if He tells us that this is what He is going to do after we’ve cried out to Him over this then we can receive His word – His release – in these situations…

    Love never fails…

    Our hearts can be pure but there are still situations where the Lord chooses not to come through in terms of deliverance (for the person) but instead to remove (the person) and in that way bring deliverance to us (from the actions of the person)…

    When this happens we are to take no pleasure in it but to serve the Lord in reverence and awe knowing that we are no better and that the deliverance which we’ve experienced is only by His Grace (we are no better)…

    We cannot fight “fire with fire” or “control with control” (I am sorry for doing this Lord) but as we wait and submit to wait for the rest of our lives the Lord will speak to us about His solution and give us a release – I believe I have experienced this myself in the last couple of weeks…

    He will not leave us “hanging” forever…

    Praise His Wonderful Name…

    I speak this in solemnity…

    But there is justice for those who submit themselves to the Lord…

    It may tarry but it will surely come…

    Love in the Lord,

  9. I went back today and looked again at the scripture quoted in my above comment…

    http://interlinearbible.org/revelation/2-23.htm

    “And the children of her I will kill with death”…

    This is what the Greek says…

    All those who side with their spiritual mother, Jezebel, God Himself will kill with death…

    All those who refuse to submit to the Authority and Godly Order which God Himself ordains and set themselves up as an authority “behind the throne”, God Himself will kill with death…

    Jezebel, Ahab’s wife, did just this…

    When Jehu came to kill her, she put on her makeup and made herself look as alluring as possible…

    Jehu was resolute…

    He was not deceived by her charms…

    When Jezebel knows her time is up she suddenly becomes charming…

    You start to wonder if you’re really doing the right thing for confronting her and “pulling her down”…

    Jehu was resolute and told the Eunuchs surrounding Jezebel to throw her out the window…

    God Himself prophesied through the Prophet Elijah regarding Jezebel’s demise…

    When Jehu came to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it, and she painted her eyes and adorned her head and looked out the window. As Jehu entered the gate, she said, “Is it well, Zimri, your master’s murderer?” Then he lifted up his face to the window and said, “Who is on my side? Who?” And two or three officials looked down at him. He said, “Throw her down.” So they threw her down, and some of her blood was sprinkled on the wall and on the horses, and he trampled her under foot. When he came in, he ate and drank; and he said, “See now to this cursed woman and bury her, for she is a king’s daughter.” They went to bury her, but they found nothing more of her than the skull and the feet and the palms of her hands. Therefore they returned and told him. And he said, “This is the word of the LORD, which He spoke by His servant Elijah the Tishbite, saying, ‘In the property of Jezreel the dogs shall eat the flesh of Jezebel; and the corpse of Jezebel will be as dung on the face of the field in the property of Jezreel, so they cannot say, “This is Jezebel.”’” (2 Kings 9:30-37 NASB)

    Another scripture which shows God’s hatred for Jezebel is,

    Now Elisha the prophet called one of the sons of the prophets and said to him, “Gird up your loins, and take this flask of oil in your hand and go to Ramoth-gilead. When you arrive there, search out Jehu the son of Jehoshaphat the son of Nimshi, and go in and bid him arise from among his brothers, and bring him to an inner room. Then take the flask of oil and pour it on his head and say, ‘Thus says the LORD, “I have anointed you king over Israel.” Then open the door and flee and do not wait.” So the young man, the servant of the prophet, went to Ramoth-gilead. When he came, behold, the captains of the army were sitting, and he said, “I have a word for you, O captain.” And Jehu said, “For which one of us?” And he said, “For you, O captain.” He arose and went into the house, and he poured the oil on his head and said to him, “Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, ‘I have anointed you king over the people of the LORD, even over Israel. You shall strike the house of Ahab your master, that I may avenge the blood of My servants the prophets, and the blood of all the servants of the LORD, at the hand of Jezebel. For the whole house of Ahab shall perish, and I will cut off from Ahab every male person both bond and free in Israel. I will make the house of Ahab like the house of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, and like the house of Baasha the son of Ahijah. The dogs shall eat Jezebel in the territory of Jezreel, and none shall bury her.’” Then he opened the door and fled. Now Jehu came out to the servants of his master, and one said to him, “Is all well? Why did this mad fellow come to you?” And he said to them, “You know very well the man and his talk.” They said, “It is a lie, tell us now.” And he said, “Thus and thus he said to me, ‘Thus says the LORD, “I have anointed you king over Israel.”’” Then they hurried and each man took his garment and placed it under him on the bare steps, and blew the trumpet, saying, “Jehu is king!” (2 Kings 9:1-13 NASB)

    We note that as Jehu approached Jezebel made herself look pretty (seduction) but her tongue was condemning…

    When Jehu came to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it, and she painted her eyes and adorned her head and looked out the window. As Jehu entered the gate, she said, “Is it well, Zimri, your master’s murderer?” (2 Kings 9:30-31 NASB)

    I was chatting with a brother from the USA this afternoon – I started this post earlier on – and the significance of these verses took my attention – Jezebel is both seductive and condemning – encouraging “immorality” (either in the physical or in the spiritual sense) and yet condemning it and using the resultant shame (of the failure) as a loss of authority and an ability to control…

    She hates male authority…

    Jehu didn’t listen, he’d heard from the Lord – a clear word – and without even pausing to consider Jezebel’s condemnation – “your master’s murderer” – he called for those who were “for him” and commanded them to throw her down…

    We cannot consider Jezebel’s condemnation – when it comes we can’t even consider it – we must stick to what we heard from the Lord in His Presence – this is our protection…

    Anyone levering that kind of seduction – spiritually or with sexual overtones – over us and then using that to bring condemnation and control – we must reject and “cast down” from any high place in which we hold them in our lives or in our hearts…

    The Lord is against them…

    He will give them time to repent…

    If they do not want to repent he says that He will kill them with death…

    http://interlinearbible.org/revelation/2-23.htm

    They are the spiritual children of Jezebel…

    So that “all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds.”

    This is sobering stuff…

    This has not yet occurred (I do not believe) – this is still a future prophecy which we are waiting to be fulfilled…

    I do not believe (is this right Lord?) that this scripture has yet had its full and final fulfilment…

    I don’t believe it has…

    I believe that it is still coming (yes, I believe this)…

    God is against Jezebel…

    She is a usurper of authority…

    She will not submit to Godly Authority…

    To Godly Order…

    Since submission is a voluntary, heart, activity, if someone is unwilling to submit under Godly Authority, i.e. what the Lord calls them to submit under, husbands to submit under Christ as their Head and wives to submit under husbands as their head, with Christ submitting under the Father as His Head, if someone is not willing (or does not want) to repent then the Lord needs to remove them…

    If a wife doesn’t want to submit to her husband then the Lord will remove her as her rebellion will poison the children against the Lord (and cause the husband not to be able to walk in his call with his wife – in unity in the Spirit with his wife – as One before the Lord – can two walk together unless they are in agreement?)…

    This will happen when the husband ceases all forms of control over his wife, i.e. doesn’t in any way expect or try to force her to submit (as this is a voluntary lining up under – hupotasso in the Greek) – once the husband has given himself to the Lord in this sense the Lord will act on his behalf…

    Once the husband has forgiven his wife and is wishing the best for her…

    If there is no response, after the Lord has given time for repentance, that wife will be removed from the earth by the Lord, the husband will have nothing to do with it, he has stood at his post, been surrendered to the Lord, waited, patiently waited and surrendered himself, his wife and his children to the Lord…

    He will be released in this case…

    On a more “church” level we have this record from scripture…

    Then the prophet Jeremiah said to Hananiah the prophet, “Listen, Hananiah! The Lord has not sent you, yet you have persuaded this nation to trust in lies. Therefore, this is what the Lord says: ‘I am about to remove you from the face of the earth. This very year you are going to die, because you have preached rebellion against the Lord.’” In the seventh month of that same year, Hananiah the prophet died. (Jeremiah 28:15-17 NIV)

    The Lord doesn’t like it when we preach rebellion against the Lord…

    But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. (1 Timothy 2:12 NASB)

    This issue of women “exercising authority” over men is the crucial issue with respect to the Jezebel spirit…

    This is not God’s design – for women to “exercise authority” (in the sense of trying to force submission) over men…

    Just as it is not God’s design for men to “exercise authority” (in the sense of trying to force submission) over women…

    It is God’s design for men to voluntarily line up under Christ in submission to Him as their Head and the women to voluntarily line up under men as their head…

    Equality isn’t the issue, we are all equal under God (men and women)…

    Equality also isn’t the issue with Jesus and the Father (both are equally God – along with the Holy Spirit)…

    It is the voluntary submission which the Lord is looking for…

    If He doesn’t find this in us then we are no use to Him on this earth…

    And there is a time coming where we will be removed…

    A fulfilment of this scripture (Revelation 2:23)…

    I believe that the following scripture also applies…

    Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly. For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep. But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged. But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world. (1 Corinthians 11:27-32 NASB)

    We are (the Church) the Body of Christ…

    If we do not recognise each other in the Body of Christ we are guilty of the Body and the Blood of the Lord…

    I know that what I am sharing is not popular but it is true…

    If we are unwilling (not fleetingly but solidly and repeatedly) to voluntarily line up under people in the Body who we know are Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors & Teachers – who we know, i.e. who the Lord has shown us, are these things and who the Lord has shown us that we should “voluntarily line up under” – then we are guilty of the Body and Blood of the Lord in this instance – we will fall asleep or die…

    1 Corinthians 7:39 also uses this word “sleep” in the Greek (http://interlinearbible.org/1_corinthians/7-39.htm) to clearly mean physically dying…

    I believe that the Lord will take us home if we are not willing to voluntarily line ourselves up under His God Given Authority (rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft)…

    Whether this be in the Church (the Body of Christ) or in the home…

    This is a very sober message…

    But I believe it is one – more than ever today – where we find ourselves right now – and remembering Tommy Hicks end times vision – where the Giant is trying to rise up from the “pinned” position he finds himself in…

    This is what the Lord will do, as we submit to Him, voluntarily, we will be released supernaturally by the Lord to walk in that Authority, Godly Authority, which He will clothe us with in submission to Him…

    I see this, Authority to all who would submit…

    It’s interesting how the Lord’s admonition to the church at Thyratia ends…

    He who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, TO HIM I WILL GIVE AUTHORITY OVER THE NATIONS; AND HE SHALL RULE THEM WITH A ROD OF IRON, AS THE VESSELS OF THE POTTER ARE BROKEN TO PIECES, as I also have received authority from My Father; and I will give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. (Revelation 2:26-29 NASB)

    All about Authority…

    Authority through voluntary submission…

    Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. (James 4:7 NASB)

    Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every human institution, whether to a king as the one in authority, or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right. (1 Peter 2:13-14 NASB)

    Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves. (Romans 13:1-2 NASB)

    In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, as they observe your chaste and respectful behavior. Your adornment must not be merely external– braiding the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or putting on dresses; but let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is precious in the sight of God. For in this way in former times the holy women also, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves, being submissive to their own husbands; just as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him lord, and you have become her children if you do what is right without being frightened by any fear. (1 Peter 3:6 NASB)

    Wives, be subject to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ also is the head of the church, He Himself being the Savior of the body. But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives ought to be to their husbands in everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory, having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless. So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies. He who loves his own wife loves himself; for no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, because we are members of His body. FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND SHALL BE JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH. This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church. Nevertheless, each individual among you also is to love his own wife even as himself, and the wife must see to it that she respects her husband. (Ephesians 5:22-33 NASB)

    Only the Lord can make this a reality for any of us but if we are not found willing to be “lined up” by the Lord by submitting to Him in whatever area He is instructing us to and this is our “pattern” of living for years and years at a time with no desire to change, i.e. living in rebellion, willful rebellion I might add, then God will judge us…

    His word is clear that we – who know Him – cannot remain in willful, unrepentant sin, yes, I believe we can be in bondage and be surrendered to Him in bondage waiting for Him to release us but this is different – this is living in willful rebellion (resisting His Holy Spirit) – God cannot bless that…

    If we know Him and are living in this way, i.e. we are resisting His Holy Spirit, He will take us home, I really believe this…

    This rebellion is the worst sort of sin which a believer can commit…

    Yes, there is bitterness but this rebellion is even deeper than bitterness…

    It is settled bitterness and a thumbing of our noses at the ordinance of God…

    It is original sin – rebellion against the Authority of God over our lives…

    Wanting to be our own boss…

    If we will not submit, we will perish…

    He is coming for a Pure Bride…

    A Pure Bride is a Submissive Bride…

    Not a bride in rebellion…

    A bride in rebellion is a description of Jezebel and her children – a false bride – and this false bride will be destroyed by the Lord…

  10. If anyone sees his brother committing a sin not leading to death, he shall ask and God will for him give life to those who commit sin not leading to death. There is a sin leading to death; I do not say that he should make request for this. All unrighteousness is sin, and there is a sin not leading to death. (1 John 5:16-17 NASB)

    Now Korah the son of Izhar, the son of Kohath, the son of Levi, with Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab, and On the son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, took action, and they rose up before Moses, together with some of the sons of Israel, two hundred and fifty leaders of the congregation, chosen in the assembly, men of renown. They assembled together against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, “You have gone far enough, for all the congregation are holy, every one of them, and the Lord is in their midst; so why do you exalt yourselves above the assembly of the Lord?” When Moses heard this, he fell on his face; and he spoke to Korah and all his company, saying, “Tomorrow morning the Lord will show who is His, and who is holy, and will bring him near to Himself; even the one whom He will choose, He will bring near to Himself. Do this: take censers for yourselves, Korah and all your company, and put fire in them, and lay incense upon them in the presence of the Lord tomorrow; and the man whom the Lord chooses shall be the one who is holy. You have gone far enough, you sons of Levi!” Then Moses said to Korah, “Hear now, you sons of Levi, is it not enough for you that the God of Israel has separated you from the rest of the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to Himself, to do the service of the tabernacle of the Lord, and to stand before the congregation to minister to them; and that He has brought you near, Korah, and all your brothers, sons of Levi, with you? And are you seeking for the priesthood also? Therefore you and all your company are gathered together against the Lord; but as for Aaron, who is he that you grumble against him?” Then Moses sent a summons to Dathan and Abiram, the sons of Eliab; but they said, “We will not come up. Is it not enough that you have brought us up out of a land flowing with milk and honey to have us die in the wilderness, but you would also lord it over us? Indeed, you have not brought us into a land flowing with milk and honey, nor have you given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Would you put out the eyes of these men? We will not come up!” Then Moses became very angry and said to the Lord, “Do not regard their offering! I have not taken a single donkey from them, nor have I done harm to any of them.” Moses said to Korah, “You and all your company be present before the Lord tomorrow, both you and they along with Aaron. Each of you take his firepan and put incense on it, and each of you bring his censer before the Lord, two hundred and fifty firepans; also you and Aaron shall each bring his firepan.” So they each took his own censer and put fire on it, and laid incense on it; and they stood at the doorway of the tent of meeting, with Moses and Aaron. Thus Korah assembled all the congregation against them at the doorway of the tent of meeting. And the glory of the Lord appeared to all the congregation. Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, “Separate yourselves from among this congregation, that I may consume them instantly.” But they fell on their faces and said, “O God, God of the spirits of all flesh, when one man sins, will You be angry with the entire congregation?” Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the congregation, saying, ‘Get back from around the dwellings of Korah, Dathan and Abiram.’” Then Moses arose and went to Dathan and Abiram, with the elders of Israel following him, and he spoke to the congregation, saying, “Depart now from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing that belongs to them, or you will be swept away in all their sin.” So they got back from around the dwellings of Korah, Dathan and Abiram; and Dathan and Abiram came out and stood at the doorway of their tents, along with their wives and their sons and their little ones. Moses said, “By this you shall know that the Lord has sent me to do all these deeds; for this is not my doing. If these men die the death of all men or if they suffer the fate of all men, then the Lord has not sent me. But if the Lord brings about an entirely new thing and the ground opens its mouth and swallows them up with all that is theirs, and they descend alive into Sheol, then you will understand that these men have spurned the Lord.” As he finished speaking all these words, the ground that was under them split open; and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them up, and their households, and all the men who belonged to Korah with their possessions. So they and all that belonged to them went down alive to Sheol; and the earth closed over them, and they perished from the midst of the assembly. All Israel who were around them fled at their outcry, for they said, “The earth may swallow us up!” Fire also came forth from the Lord and consumed the two hundred and fifty men who were offering the incense. Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Say to Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, that he shall take up the censers out of the midst of the blaze, for they are holy; and you scatter the burning coals abroad. As for the censers of these men who have sinned at the cost of their lives, let them be made into hammered sheets for a plating of the altar, since they did present them before the Lord and they are holy; and they shall be for a sign to the sons of Israel.” So Eleazar the priest took the bronze censers which the men who were burned had offered, and they hammered them out as a plating for the altar, as a reminder to the sons of Israel that no layman who is not of the descendants of Aaron should come near to burn incense before the Lord; so that he will not become like Korah and his company—just as the Lord had spoken to him through Moses. But on the next day all the congregation of the sons of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron, saying, “You are the ones who have caused the death of the Lord’s people.” It came about, however, when the congregation had assembled against Moses and Aaron, that they turned toward the tent of meeting, and behold, the cloud covered it and the glory of the Lord appeared. Then Moses and Aaron came to the front of the tent of meeting, and the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Get away from among this congregation, that I may consume them instantly.” Then they fell on their faces. Moses said to Aaron, “Take your censer and put in it fire from the altar, and lay incense on it; then bring it quickly to the congregation and make atonement for them, for wrath has gone forth from the Lord, the plague has begun!” Then Aaron took it as Moses had spoken, and ran into the midst of the assembly, for behold, the plague had begun among the people. So he put on the incense and made atonement for the people. He took his stand between the dead and the living, so that the plague was checked. But those who died by the plague were 14,700, besides those who died on account of Korah. Then Aaron returned to Moses at the doorway of the tent of meeting, for the plague had been checked. (Numbers 16 NASB)

    There is a fire beginning to burn in my bones regarding this topic of rebellion against the Lord and against those whom He has appointed in places of authority in our lives…

    As I said in a previous post if we know that there is an authority figure in our lives that we are not willing to submit to and we try to undermine their authority or resist their authority or outright challenge their authority and refuse to submit to their authority – knowing that the Lord has set that one over us then we are committing the sin of rebellion…

    And in the Eyes of the Lord this is a sin which leads to death…

    It is the sheer Sovereign Mercy of the Lord if He chooses not to put us to death in this instance – I am speaking of those who know Him…

    I am not saying that ones who know Him who are put to death in this instance will lose their salvation – they will not…

    But they will lose their lives…

    They will be removed from the earth…

    Nothing has changed in the way God treats His People throughout time…

    His Character is still the same…

    He still hates rebellion…

    There is a place where we are safe and that place is the place of surrender…

    Surrender to the Fire…

    If we have placed ourselves into the Lord’s Oven (so to speak) – placed ourselves onto His Altar – or like Daniel’s three friends are walking in the midst of the Firey Furnance (so to speak) – then we are OK…

    We still might have a lot of sin in our lives but we have surrendered to the Lord for Him to do whatever He wants with us…

    We are not usurping any authority…

    We are submitting to the authority of the Lord…

    We are in a place where He says to us, “Do not strive in My Presence” and also conversely, “Do not resist My Holy Spirit”…

    He has said this to me…

    There is no striving but when He moves there is no resisting…

    This is a place of surrender…

    This is the only safe place for us…

    If we are here then we will know who to surrender to in terms of Godly Authority structures in our lives…

    And we will…

    And this will be our safety…

    If we hold ourselves aloof and are unwilling to submit then we are guilty of the sin of rebellion…

    If we will not line up voluntarily under Godly Authority then we will be subject to the Judgement of God – whether we are a believer or whether we are not…

    When I say the Judgement of God I am not speaking of the Wrath of God but I am speaking of, “For it is time for judgment to begin with the household of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?” (1 Peter 4:17 NASB) and I am also speaking of, “But if we judged ourselves, we would not come under judgment.” (1 Corinthians 11:31 NIV) and by this I am meaning that if we are submitting ourselves to the Fire of God onto the Altar of God in the way I have described then we have “judged ourselves” – this is Romans 12:1-2 – offering our bodies as living sacrifices – if we have done this we have “judged ourselves”…

    If we have not done this then we have not “judged ourselves”…

    And we will be judged by the Lord…

    I see that those who “stand clear” of those who are in rebellion – who have given them to the Lord – who have cried out for them – who have suffered under their rebellion – who have burdened themselves with prayer for these ones who are in rebellion – Jezebel’s grasp – these ones who have let go of any control and any “pay back” but are standing defenseless from her attacks trusting in the Lord – these ones will not be left “high and dry” by the Lord…

    If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; For you will heap burning coals on his head, And the LORD will reward you. (Proverbs 25:21-22 NASB)

    When we cease to hold on to bitterness, seek nothing but the best and “let go” of the way people treat us to the Lord we release ourselves from the “control” of having to requite them for the evil which they’ve caused us – we “let God be God” (as “there is only One Lawgiver and Judge”) and in doing this, this frees the Lord to judge, to vindicate on our behalf…

    Perhaps the Lord will have Mercy on them – that’s good for us as they will be reconciled to us and gain forgiveness with us…

    Perhaps the Lord will remove them – that’s good for us as they will no longer be able to cause us pain…

    Either way it is good for us – yes, it is sad if they are a loved one and that has flow on consequences for others in our sphere of influence but if the Lord does it – it is Just and it is Righteous and it is the Lord’s doing…

    At the end of all our intercession at the end of all our tears and our crying and our pleading before God – there are two outcomes…

    As long as we are totally surrendered before the Lord and have lost all control – either those who will not take their place in our lives will be removed from us and from this earth or they will be restored to us and work with us for the Glory of God…

    There are no other options – the Lord will not leave us hanging…

    Praise You Jesus – for You always “make a way”…

    Thank You Lord…

    I know that there are those who will read this post and know what I am speaking of…

    I believe these ones will be blessed by what I share…

    I pray so…

    In your own personal lives you have gone through this struggle and you know what I speak of…

    There is vindication and freedom for you as there is for me and for all who will submit themselves to the Lord and to His Fire…

    Love in the Lord,

    Andrew

    I attach the above as I was recently invited to go to some prayer gatherings to be held here in Christchurch which are run by those involved with IHOP.

    I have a real “unease” in my spirit regarding IHOP.

    It appears that IHOP are promoting the belief that I mentioned in one of my earlier comments on this post – the one about Jesus being our “lover” in a sexual or sensual manner…

    I do not believe that I will be attending these events…

    The sad thing is that these events are promoting 24/7 prayer which is very strongly on my heart…

    https://ahouseofprayerforthenations.wordpress.com/2012/06/04/a-house-of-prayer-for-the-nations/

    I wrote the above on this earlier on this year…

    I would just like to make one thing very plain…

    A desire to live in the Presence of God, i.e. “one thing I have asked of the Lord…” (Psalm 27) is not an escape from reality…

    When I say that and that I have a desire to seek only the Lord’s Face it doesn’t mean that to achieve that I have to quit my job, leave my family, go find a cave somewhere and live like a monk or a hermit only communicating with God for the rest of my life…

    When I say that I have a desire to seek the Lord’s Face it means that He is the only One on this planet who has anything to offer me…

    All those who know Him who He brings across my path to bless me are a blessing from Him…

    My focus is to be on Him but this is not in any way, shape or form in a sexual manner…

    It is so sad to me that the enemy has got in here and twisted something so beautiful…

    The Beauty of Holiness, to make it about sex…

    I have experienced sexual healing – I’m not saying I’m perfect sexually – but I have experienced sexual healing and I know what it is to love the Lord with no sense of sensuality or sexuality associated with my relationship with Him…

    He is my Lord, He is my Friend, He is my God, He is my Saviour, He is my Father and He is my Brother, He is also my Comforter and at times He shows His Tenderness like a Nursing Mother but He is Masculine – and He is not sexual…

    Jesus wasn’t sexual when He was on earth…

    He had no sexual interest while He was on earth…

    I have experienced this side of the Lord – His Love is Pure…

    There is nothing corrupt or selfish in His Love…

    He has explained to me that He will enable me to love my wife sexually and her me (when He makes this a reality in my life) with no thought of selfish pleasure…

    This is because He views all things in a pure manner…

    The sexual intimacy is only to be between a husband and his wife…

    The Lord told me a number of years ago, “I will meet all your sexual needs through your wife”…

    He then said there would be a time of deprivation before that occured…

    I have been experiencing that deprivation – that deprivation is what has brought the deliverance which I have experienced in the sexual area…

    I praise God for this deprivation…

    When we are young and single we are vulnerable to these sort of lies – that Jesus is our “lover” in a sexual sort of way or sensual sort of way as it fills a “void” in our lives as we are not “active” sexually…

    Only God – and marrying the person who God tells you to – can make sex real and meaningful in your life…

    Sex, like everything else must be freely given and freely received…

    Without that it is nothing…

    Even if we do marry the partner who the Lord tells us to there still may be sexual deprivation – as there has been in my life – to bring about the purity in us which the Lord requires…

    Sex isn’t everything – I’ve learnt that – and the Knowledge of the Lord – hearing His Voice, knowing His Presence, experiencing His Peace, His Joy, His Love, etc, is so much more than any earthly experience could ever be – if I can never have sex again for the entire remainder of my life I am very happy as long as I have the Lord’s Peace and an assurance that I am in His Hands – that He is looking after me…

    I have surrendered to be a eunuch for the sake of the Kingdom of God…

    I have surrendered to this – only fairly recently (2010) and again within the last week or so (2012) – if this is the Lord’s will for me – as Paul says so that I can focus on the work of the Lord…

    The Lord often brings us to surrenders which are very real for us and then will turn around and say, “I just wanted to see your heart”, sometimes He will take us up on these things and sometimes He will not, He just wanted to know if it was yielded…

    Scripture says, “If someone can receive it then they should receive it”, I’d never been able to receive it until He asked me in 2010 and then I received it…

    It wasn’t hard cos He’d prepared me…

    Again recently it was costly and hard because He’d given me that promise, “I will meet all your sexual needs through your wife” but I was able to submit to this because greater to me is my relationship (non-sexual) with the Lord than any promise which He has made me…

    I am aware that I am sharing very openly here and I am aware that there will be some who will not understand what I am sharing…

    What I am trying to say is that in our love for the Lord there is nothing that we would not do for Him…

    Abraham was willing to sacrifice his own son for the Lord…

    The Lord commended him for this even though Abraham loved his son…

    As we seek the Lord He will ask things from us that we are not naturally able to give Him – this is passion (non-sexual) for Jesus – to obey Him and submit to the surrenders which He requires over our lives…

    Only the Lord knows these surrenders which we each make – only He sees…

    He knows our hearts and He experiences our pain…

    He is so much better than sex…

    The Knowledge (non-sexual) of Him is Eternal Life…

    I have had some experiences of Him which are just so real and so amazing that I believe they will be etched into the very fabric of who I am for ever – for eternity…

    When He speaks to us and we know it is Him and when He shows us things about us and Him and about His relationship with us – we are overwhelmed…

    None of these experiences has anything to do with sexuality…

    Intimacy with the Lord is in the spirit (the spiritual realm) – spirit to spirit…

    There is no sexuality in a spirit to spirit relationship…

    It is pure – it is from His Spirit to our new spirit which He gave us at regeneration…

    Please if you’re a young person who “stumbles across” this comment, please offer up your sexuality to the Lord – believe what the Apostle Paul says, honestly it is better to remain single and be devoted solely to the Lord and to His work than to marry – unless the Lord specifically tells you to marry…

    Marrying doesn’t help or solve your sexual problems…

    Yes, the Lord can use the pain you go through in marriage to bring deliverance to you in these areas but if He is enabling you to stay single – please in the Name of the Lord – if He is enabling you to remain single – please remain single and let Him remove sexual immorality from you…

    At the time when He has planned for you to marry He will give you a peace – even then that does not ensure that you will have “marital bliss” in the sexual area…

    Beyond sex there is such a freedom – as I said I am not claiming to be perfect sexually – but I just know that the freedom that I’ve enjoyed since 2010 (He delivered me from a sexual stronghold before giving me the ability to receive the eunuch thing) has been so much more than ever before…

    He is faithful…

    Please don’t be deceived…

    When you come to the Lord you are not coming to a sexual entity…

    The Lord gives us those analogies so we can see how much closer we are to Him in the spiritual than a wife is to a loving husband in the physical…

    It is not literal…

    There is no marriage or sexuality in heaven – we are not going to be married or given in marriage in heaven – we will be like the angels…

    When the angels sinned and some of them (after becoming demons) went down to earth and had sex with the daughters of men the Lord needed to bring the flood to destroy all flesh from the face of the earth and those demons were thrown into the abyss and are still held in chains to this day…

    This is God’s impression regarding sexuality occuring between the spiritual realm and the earthly realm – He is completely against it…

    Love in the Lord,

    Andrew

  12. The Lord has shown me the victory over the spirit of witchcraft or the Jebezel spirit…

    It is to completely lose control yourself…

    It is not in “shouting” at it… 🙂

    It is in losing control…

    Knowing that God has given you everything you need for life and godliness…

    A new heart, a new spirit, a righteous soul and the Holy Spirit abiding in you forever…

    A sword in your hand – the Sword of the Spirit – Strength and Unity (Ehud’s sword)…

    A sceptre in the other – His Authority…

    A cloak or mantle of His Power over your back and shoulders…

    He has shown me this…

    It is very powerful…

    I am in His Hands…

    This is only given to those who let go…

    Who let go of all control…

    Of their own lives…

    Once this occurs control in others has no hold on you…

    Witchcraft cannot touch you and you can laugh at it…

    With joy in your heart – as I was last night… 🙂

    Praise You Jesus…

    You give us the victory…

    The victory is Yours and it is real… 🙂

    Praise Your Holy Name…

    Praise You Jesus…

    I love You Lord…

    You are Worthy…

    And Your Blood conquers all… 🙂

    “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!” (Revelation 5:12b NIV)

    Praise You Jesus… 🙂

    You are Worthy… 🙂

    Jezebel has fallen…

  13. I’ve really been seeing more and more regarding this spirit as the Lord has been stripping me personally of control…

    I love You Lord…

    You are so patient with us…

    But I say this…

    There is a time coming when the Lord’s Patience will “run out”…

    I sense that we are “right on the edge” of that time…

    I really sense that…

    ‘I gave her time to repent, and she does not want to repent of her immorality. (Revelation 2:21 NASB)

    I feel personally that I have been so favoured by the Lord to have been taken through this process – which is still on going – to be set free from control – my heart longs for this – but there is more – there is always more… 🙂

    But there is a time where those – who know the Lord – who are unwilling to let go of control – who are unwilling to practically submit themselves to their spiritual Husband – the Lord Jesus Christ – “as the Church submits to Christ” – and voluntarily “lining themselves up” under Him and under the Authority Structures (true Spiritual Authority which has been set in place by the Lord Jesus Himself – who gave gifts to the Church – not man-made authority structures) which He has set in His Body – will be removed from this earth…

    I am so “even” about this – I don’t feel passionate – I don’t feel angry – I just know that this is true – I have no desire for any child of God to miss the Grace of God in the sense of a bitter root growing up in them which will cause trouble and defile many but if they are unwilling to repent then the Lord will take them home…

    As I’ve said before it has nothing to do with our eternal salvation – which is eternal – we are one spirit with Jesus – as we have joined ourselves to the Lord – but if we have joined ourselves to the Lord it is then spiritually immoral for us to refuse to submit ourselves to Him as His spiritual Wife – the picture which Paul paints for us in Ephesians 5…

    He will never force us to submit…

    That is not His way but in sadness He will remove us from this earth – in His Jealousy – as He Jealously longs for us – He will make us know wisdom – with Him in heaven – so that we can be with Him where He is…

    He loves us and wants us to see His Glory…

    If we are unwilling to see His Glory – through this submission – on earth then He will remove us from this earth – as His will for us is to transform us (practically) into the Image of His Son – and seat us practically with Him in heaven so that we will know Him as we have been known by Him…

    Practically – this is from God’s perspective – His Passionate longing for us – to be with Him and to be like Him…

    But from the perspective of those looking on – they can’t see a United Church when this spirit is still in practical control of us…

    If we can’t submit to authority and are unwilling to “line ourselves up” under our brothers and sisters as led by the Lord – Him telling us directly – not anyone else telling us – but Him telling us directly – then this is rebellion and this must be and will be removed from the earth…

    The biting and devouring which Paul talks of is the result of that spirit’s operation in the believer…

    And it results – it will result and has before – in being devoured by one another…

    I have really struggled over this…

    How can we as sons and daughters of Abraham by faith who are blessed in all things possibly end up coming under the curse that those would come under who would curse Abraham or his descendants?

    And yet in some mystical way – this removal from earth – this “many of you are sick and some have already fallen asleep” or “there is a sin which leads to death, I do not suggest that he should pray about this” sort of way – somehow there are “limits” with God – I know this is hard to understand – I believe fully in Grace – but I have seen this reality and have been “living through it” and seeing it quite “up close and personal” at times…

    There are times where I go to intercede for certain people and the Lord says, “No”…

    And it really saddens me…

    I can’t “touch them” or “reach them” – my heart yearns for them to be released but He says, “No”…

    And I sense it is because of this – control…

    If you read this and the Lord convicts you – I am speaking to believers here – please take this before the Lord – the season is changing and now is the time for the harvest but He will not use those who are not “team players” who will not unite themselves with their brothers and sisters and “play their part” – who will speak against their brothers and sisters – He will remove these from the earth so that they can know Him and His Way in heaven – and support us from there after seeing the reality of what they have been doing – I am not threatening anyone here – threats are not from God – I am just “evenly” warning – it is on my heart to do so as I know this time is approaching and approaching rapidly (I believe)…

    I personally don’t want to be removed from the earth but have prayed to the Lord (yesterday and again this morning) that if I have to be that He would so that His truth can be seen…

    I want His truth to be seen…

    I want His Kingdom to come and His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven…

    Love you,

    Andrew

  14. Father, in Jesus Name I pray for release from this spirit of control for every human being living on this planet…

    I pray that in this chosen generation there will be release for all…

    I’ve known release – I’ve known that there is further release – give all on this planet all the release You’ve given me to date and all that I will ever experience in this life – I know that there is a never ending stream of release flowing from Your Presence and I know that in Your timing I and all living on this planet will experience this release – this release from the spirit of control operating through the Jezebel spirit…

    We are free – it is for freedom that Christ set us free – but let us practically experience this freedom Lord in our lives – right here and now – on earth…

    Thank You Lord – Thank You that You are Faithful…

    And that everything which You take us through is for a purpose…

  15. I am so blessed – someone from Israel – the first ever view from someone in Israel – has just stumbled across this post – searching for “overcoming the spirit of jezebel” – I am so blessed…

    We have this – the spirit of Jezebel is defeated…

    Our control – our control has got in the way – but the Lord is Mighty – Mighty to save…

    Thank You Lord for Your Freedom – Thank You for Your process of waiting on the Lord – Thank You that control bows before You – it has nothing on You…

    You give good gifts to Your children – not when they are well-behaved but because – as You showed me this morning – You don’t withhold things from those who walk uprightly…

    And how do we walk uprightly?

    We walk by faith and not by sight…

    When we walk in faith we “work the work of God”…

    That is our life-breath…

    And when we believe that God blesses us according to His will (and timeframe) and not according to our efforts to please Him or how much sin we’re avoiding or how righteous we’re trying to be – but according to His Grace – not how religious we are being – but how trusting we are being of His “delight to show us mercy” and His “abundant pardon” – it is in this place that we experience the free gift of His “every good and perfect gift” coming down from Above – from the Father of lights who does not change like shifting shadows – He is Awesome…

    We cannot make God “speed up” or “slow down” His blessing of us (His timing is perfect and not “rushed” or “bullied” by our efforts to impress upon Him the urgency of our situation)…

    The spirit of control doesn’t understand this – it can’t comprehend it – it is anathema to it…

    It is in confusion at the very thought – I feel it…

    Victory…

    Victory in our rest…

    I claim the victory of our rest over Your Church Lord – and I have this – the victory of Your rest over Your Church – we will strive no longer – we will rest in You – and in this place of rest we will know Your love – we will remain and abide in Your Love – our faith is in Your love – not our performance – we are loved and we will love because we are loved – no other reason – we will be a pure demonstration of You because we love You – no other reason – and we will do this in rest – not in striving…
