UNMASKING JEZEBEL’S ARCHITECTURE OVER THE NATIONS. PART 2

2 Corinthians 10

4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 6 And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, once your obedience is complete.

SEASONS OF INCREASED TRUTH INCREASES SPIRITUAL COMPETENCE

Revelation 17:1-2

One of the seven angels who had poured out the seven bowls came over and spoke to me. “Come with me,” he said, “and I will show you the judgment that is going to come on the great prostitute, who rules over many waters. 2The kings of the world have committed adultery with her, and the people who belong to this world have been made drunk by the wine of her immorality.”

Our [kings] political and spiritual leaders have falsely joined themselves in sexual intercourse with the spirit of the harlot to pervert the holy seed; Churches within the nations are today infested with a familiar spirit, occultic practices has almost replaced authentic worship; ministry born through the influence of fallen angelic beings with the daughters of men are replacing the voice of true apostolic ministry. Strangers have become a legitimate voice within the house of God demanding the worship of the Saints.

A different believe the system has become the accepted culture and ideology that rules and guide the leadership within the walls of the Church. Idolatry has replaced the worship of the true God. The worship of mammon, [charm] beauty, gifts, talents, personality drive, have all been exchanged for the position of truth and the values of kingdom validation.

Our paradigms have been distracted and shifted from the journey to Zion, to now turning back to the way to Egypt. We have been invaded; we have been captured, and we are now being led into captivity within the unregenerated minds of our soul. [Exodus 32:1-5] Many have now gathered for themselves teachers that only tells them what they want to hear. If what they hear does not suit their narrative of political correctness and religious tolerance, they discard such truth, and claim, we don’t have love. [2 Timothy 4:1-5]

Jezebel’s high places have almost replaced true worship centers across the nations. We are not only seeing high places being built for the worship of Baal and other foreign gods within our societies and its various government institutions, but these high places are also powerfully being built within our homes and various communities.

Behind the so-called worship, praise, sermons, teachings, training, and programs we offer, are unbelievable spirits of compromise found. Many of our leaders have dedicated themselves to the worship of foreign gods; Satanic and demonic activities are taking place behind the cotton walls of our worship center to stir the heart of the Father to jealousy. Read Ezekiel chapter 8.

They’ve been numerous teachings, books, and materials released from time to time in the Body of Christ regarding the spirit and character nature of Jezebel, which I believed were quite interesting and helpful in many ways to the Body of Christ, particularly, amongst those graced in the spirit of intercession and spiritual warfare.

We have, however, witnessed in the past two decades, an increase in the ascended, revelation of Christ, and the use of advanced, prophetic tools within the context of the ministry of wisdom, even as the light of the kingdom of God becomes more visible in our day.

These two inputs have exponentially increased our position of light within the systemic darkness of the day and have also accelerated our understanding regarding the subtle operations of the forces of darkness, both within the Church and across the shifting sociocultural identity battle within the nations. Indeed, only in the ever-increasing light of Christ do we have increased light to recognize and uncover the various systemic, Satanic activity of darkness in this Age.

Both the operation and weapons of darkness in our day have changed from how we used to be able to identify them in the past, to a more vicious, but subtle form of an attack playing out on the platforms of what defines our identity, faith, morality, family values, and economic provision.

However, the deadliest attack of this New Age Jazebelic attack is directly targeted toward disfiguring human identity and destroying the biblical spiritual foundation and framework of godliness. The mystery of iniquity is viciously attacking anyone who desire to live by the mystery of godliness, but we know that the mystery of godliness at the long run will overcome these forces of darkness.

I do not believe that the challenge regarding this subject is merely around the exposure of the spirit of Jezebel as a present-day Satanic, operating system, as important as this is. I, however, believe that the Church’s focus should be more about developing the required leadership, governmental wisdom, courage, and attitude, willing to precisely identify, confront, and uproot the systemic architectural layout of the spirit of Jezebel within the Church and in the society.

The Saints needs to be resourced on around sound, biblically governmental, intercessory maturity and authority in confronting this wicked, territorial, spirit, and this is what I hope to achieve through these series of teachings.

The biblical spiritual quality standard that will uncover and neutralize the operation of Jezebel today will have to carry a more advanced, governmental position of authority than what was exercised under the Old covenant for several reasons we must identify.

In other words, our current apostolic position of hindsight, insight, and foresight of biblical history, doctrinal balance, and the discerning knowledge of the present ecclesia position us in a better spiritual location to proceed and maneuver our strategies in confronting this high-power principality of a spirit called Jezebel.

The abdication of leadership position

Read Genesis chapter 6

The only reason why we are seeking to deal with this issue today is due to the rebellion and the abdication of leadership position and authority from Church leaders just as we saw in the Garden. When Adam abdicated his governmental position and influence over the space heaven authorized him to dress and watch, Satan came in to displayed and dispossessed him of his identity as a man, as a husband, and of course, as a father.

“But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way”.

[Mathews 13:25]

The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one. The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels [Mathews 13:38,39]

And I will keep on doing what I am doing in order to cut the ground from under those who want an opportunity to be considered equal with us in the things they boast about. 13 For such people are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will be what their actions deserve. 2 Corinthians 11: 12-15

IMAGE OF THE BEAST AND THE BATTLE OF

THE WOMAN’S IDENTITY IN UNCOVERING JEZEBEL.

There’s no doubt that we are dealing with the same spirit that showed up during the days of Elijah, but the current operation and manifestation of this spirit has become even more advanced, systematic, and governmental in appearance according to our text scripture in Revelation 2:18-23

Arguably, this topic is one of the most sensitive subjects, and to an extent, divisive in many parts of Christian communities. However, the relevancy and timing of this subject are extremely important to the present emphasis of the Spirit, if the mandate of the kingdom must become a true, effective reality in our day and generation.

Due to the Immature mishandling and the imbalance approach to the doctrinal and prophetic teaching around the understanding of this subject, many, particularly, women, have become offended, resistant, and in some cases have outrightly rejected the notions around the spirit of Jezebel because they deem it as a direct attack on their gender, and to a large extent, they are right.

The point however is, the lack of understanding regarding how to precisely diagnose and interpret what the Lord is showing us through this character that took the woman’s persona to manifest its atrocious evil on humanity is what needs to be dealt with in this season of increased hate, division, and destruction.

Accurate biblical kingdom principle, values and interpretation of truth relating to this subject are critical, especially when the false narrative behind the character and authority of women has almost been accepted as the truth. The fact is, they’ve been many instances where men, in political and spiritual leadership, have sought to use inaccurate interpretation of the word of God to promote their own religious, traditional beliefs, bias, and false, masculine agendas against women.

We should never forget that most of what we claim to be biblical in terms of beliefs and practices are nothing more than the extension of our ancient, cultural beliefs and values. Many are still practicing what I term as environmental Christianity. This Christianity accepts the predominant societal values and practices, embraces ancestral rites, beliefs and practice, it imports humanist values, racial prejudice, gender superiority, and other forms of biases that are totally misrepresenting the ordained order, value and standard of God for his creation, and of course, against the established apostolic framework of the function of the Ecclesia’s community.

The Church of the Lord is not the extension of our culture, tradition or even patriotic national identity; the Church has been called out of such values, and it should be related to from such ascended, perspective regarding any matter or subject we are dealing with.  The Church was assigned to set a better quality of lifestyle and relationship in society.

How ideologies that shaped societal practice.

Often, when dealing with certain issues in society or even within the context of the Bible, we forget that the world we live in today has been shaped by various beliefs, values, ideologies that were embraced by those who ruled and reign during the ancient civilizations. These philosophies were approved on the backdrop of imperial decrees, political status and influence, which are products of powerful men in the society with economic advantage who often occupy high religious positions.

 These beliefs and wrong values established by men were centered around state security and the power of family and business succession. It was a general belief that the male child will be in a better position to secure the name and wealth of the family, and this belief filtered into the extended society.

These nations divide society into compartments, of Royal born, The high class, low class, and slaves. Men were defined and seen as instrument of strength, war, and political rulers. The woman on the other hand were also classified into Royal born, high class, priestess, middle class [those born into the home of merchants, servant of Royal born or military generals] and slaves.

It is almost seen as a curse if a family doesn’t have a male child. The two most powerful and influential civilizations which were the Roman and Greek reconfigured how the human being is to be examined, valued and defined.

God’s word and its precise interpretation should always define where we stand in our personal or worldview. Taking one aspect of biblical truth like the popular one, where Paul said that women should be quiet in the house of God, and if they have any question regarding what was preached, they should discuss it with their husband when they get home.

Unfortunately, scripture like this has been extremely abused due to the lack of doctrinal knowledge, historic background, and what could be defined as the practice of tradition imported into the community of the Saints. This was a statement that was made to curtail an increase of wrong attitude, arguments, subordination, confusions, and disorderliness that was publicly playing out between husbands and wives who had been once culture by the general believe system and practice of the dominant philosophy of their day.

The freedom and liberty these new converts were beginning to enjoy in the community of the Saints were being perverted to the degree of almost creating anarchy in the household of God, and Paul had to step in as the Apostle of God in bringing judgement and correction.

Apparently, this was a growing problem amongst the new converts who were joining the community of the early Church. The liberty many enjoyed when they came into the assembly of the Saints were being taken for granted to the point the Church became an open ground to settle personal, domestic issues.

The liberty and recognition ordinary women were never given in the society to express their spiritual or political opinion under the Roman law and the Greek culture was something new they had in the community of the Body of Christ when the joined. Unfortunately, these liberties were being abused and misused as wives challenge their husbands openly without respect and regards to the sanctity of the house of God.

 Both the Greek and the Roman culture, and of cause, the Rabbinic Jewish tradition, impact a great deal on the belief and character ideologies of the people while they were being integrated into the early Church community just as it is today.

The point here is, Apostle Paul was establishing a different order and pattern for the Saints lifestyle; a community whose domestic expression should reflect the value, order, discipline, respect and honor in place of the compromised, prevalent culture of the environment of the day which was categorized in dominance, disrespect and lawlessness.

Ephesians 5

21 Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. 22, Wives, submit yourselves to your own husbands as you do to the Lord. 23 For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing b her by the washing with water through the word, 27and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28 In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. 29 After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— 30 for we are members of his body. 31“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” 32 This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. 33 However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. 1 Corinthians 14:34

Women are to be silent in the churches. They are not permitted to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says. Anyone who have studied the book of Corinthians one would appreciate the depth of confusion and factionist attitude in the Church while they boast of their individual gifts and preferred ministers.

1 Corinthians 11:3

But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

Luke 8:

1 After this, Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God. The Twelve were with him, 2 and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out; 3 Joanna the wife of Chuza, the manager of Herod’s household; Susanna; and many others. These women were helping to support them out of their own means.

The position of defining and understanding spiritual authority is still very vague today in the Church unfortunately. Many of the things we are doing in terms of ministry functionality and their administrations are unfortunately carried out either through some passed down denominational traditions, religious bias, or a total resistance, and defiance of the former set rules. This is what has fueled many of the breakaway in the Body of Christ, and the feminist narrative agenda even within the church space today.

My intention

My intention however on this critical subject is not one with bias, or with the agenda to offend any person, especially women, after all, we are all sons of God, assigned to address every high place and strongholds of darkness, position to exalt themselves above the knowledge and wisdom of God over the nations.

Dealing with spiritual high places cuts across gender, race, social status, age, and spiritual rankings. Everyone must understand the role we have to play in bringing down this towering spirit of a principality by the name Jezebel.  We know that the manifestation of certain spirits or demonic character uses either a male or female gender to express a peculiarity objective within the context of an assault that is launched by the enemy.

2 Corinthians 10

4 The weapons of our warfare are not the weapons of the world. Instead, they have divine power to demolish [high places] strongholds. 5 We tear down arguments, and every presumption set up against the knowledge of God; and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. 6 And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience, as soon as your obedience is complete.

One of the things that make the spirit of Jezebel more threatening and dangerous than the other forms of Satanic operatives is for the fact she has the power to alter what you think, see, believe, and ultimately worship. She has the capacity to multiply herself through her seed and the altars she builds in places known as the high places across societies. We shall later examine the characteristics of the spirit.
