continue to track the architect of the spirit of Jezebel so we can be prophetically
equipped in dealing with it. We have reached a critical point in understanding how
this spirit gets to infiltrate the community of God’s people and society.
no better way to unveil the mystery of a spirit or character than being able to
discover how such a spirit in the first place gets into such human space and heart.
The formation of Alliances has always been one of the most effective instruments
used for nations to prevent or stop protracted wars and battles between the two
most cases, this alliance is made through the payments of dowries and ransoms;
and the given away of certain key villages, cities, or territories. But the
most effective one is the giving away in marriage of the princess in most
cases, or Prince in some case from one kingdom to the other as a seal of peace.
idea as further been adopted by very wealthy and influential families across
nations through the centuries for the purpose of keeping their riches, name,
and fame from being corrupted by those deemed as the commoners or the ignoble
of society. In the cases of Princess, often, they are usually prepared and
groomed to be given away in marriage to other Kings or kingdom as a pawn that
might become a very powerful and influential entity in the strategy of building
or reinforcing alliance.
God, in his covenant sovereignty, wisdom, and relationship with the nation of
Israel had pre-warned them never to go into any form of alliance with foreign,
gentile nations. Not even ordinary Israelis citizens are allowed to marry from
other nations under the Old Testament biblical law. They’ve been forbidden to
marrying from countries that serves and worship foreign gods.
from nations that serves other gods outside the God of their fathers is a
serious offense that carries severe punishment. Unfortunately, this violation
has been of the greatest sins the children of Israel had committed in the sight
of God by marrying and given their children in marriage to nations that
plan of the Father for the children of Israel as a nation of a kingdom of
priest was one of the reasons this law was promulgated. The issue of divine
separation as a nation that will reflect the standard and glory of God to the
rest of the world was and is still a major objective in the call to stand out
from the rest of the world.
The easiest way for the enemy to infiltrate the prophetic activity of the Father in the earth is through wrong connections and alliance. As powerful as relationship means to the prophetic advancement of the purposes of God, particularly, a marriage relationship, so is relationship one of Satan’s key strategies in seeking to cripple, pollute, and destroy the agenda of God.
We today live in a world where what informs our connection to people is basically sensual and material base, and this has made it even easier for the enemy to carry out his diabolic attacks. If all we are preoccupied with is a pleasure to be derived from a relationship without considering another critical impact such a relationship will usher into our lives and space, then it means we really do not understand the effects of spiritual things around our lives.
life and objective of a relationship cannot be genuinely comprehended through
emotion or intelligence as highly important as they may be. We need spiritual knowledge, insight, and
wisdom in going into any kind of activity that we bind us with other people, so
we are not taking advantage of through ignorance. Humans are carriers of
spirits; these spirits can the right or wrong spirit.
the issues we are trying to resolve or make sense of in marriage or in our
workplace are more of spiritual than just a position of bad attitude, and even
in cases of bad character, these characters or attitudes can be traced to
spiritual issues that seek to get us to a place of point of compromise by the
enemy. This is one of the major reasons
we should be careful regarding who we define to be it friends or relationship,
and worst still, who we finally decide to choose to be our life-partner in
marriage. These are major, life decisions that cannot be made on face value or
in the context of emotional excitement.
is not just about two people coming to live together because they both claim to
‘love’ each other. Love is a big part of our lives we, unfortunately, know very
little about. There is great advantage to marriage when we understand its main
purpose and objective from God’s perfect ice, after all, marriage was his idea.
Unfortunately, there are also serious consequences to marriage when we
ignorantly ignore the foundational values and framework that ought be in place
before we go into a covenant of marriage.
Joshua chapter 6 we see a terrible mistake made by the children of Israel under
the military leadership of Joshua regarding the Gibeonite. The children
ignorantly allowed themselves to be tricked into false alliance to present the
Israelites from attacking the Gibeonite.
is one of the highest levels of blood covenant and when it’s made ignorantly
without a precise, biblical, prophetic direction, we can directly or indirectly
bind ourselves to certain obligations, contracts, covenant, or even influence
of the powers of darkness.
to the people of God, insecurity and the lack of trust is what pushes most of
the kings to join affinity with other nations, particularly, through the medium
of marriage. In the cases of others, it’s just the issue of lust like we see in
relations to King Solomon and King Ahab.
of the main things that brought Solomon with his great wisdom, wealth, and
power down as the Son of one of the greatest Kings ever lived in human history,
King David, was his love for foreign women, and the scripture told us that
Solomon foreign wives turned his heart away from the love of the God of his
Father David. The bible told us that they tuned Solomon heart away from God
when he began to get old. As we begin to track the fall of great kingdoms,
empires, and ordinary people right from bible days to this present day, one can
see is clear that great men and leaders fall due to marrying the wrong person.
marriage of princess Jezebel the daughter of King Ethbaal, a Phoenician empire
was a serious crime in the sight of God that brought terrible consequence to
the house of Ahab, and the entire nation of Israel. Ahab, the son of Omri did
not just marry Jezebel due to the issue of protecting his kingdom, at least,
the scripture never suggested this; Ahab took Jezebel in marriage due to
arrogance, and lust in disobedience to the command of the Lord.
many theologians will further confirm that Jezebel was not just a mere Princess
but in fact, she was a priestess of Baal. She was a direct worshipper of
Beelzebub, and we will later see how she turned the capital of Israel that
became Samaria to the capital of Baal worship. Beyond the sin of Jeroboam that
was committed by Ahab, he further angered God by going to join hands in
marriage to a nation that is openly committed to the worship of idols. Idolatry
is one of the highest crimes any human, family, or society can commit before
Because of the leadership position and influence of Ahab, he exposed the entire nation to the spirit of Beelzebub, and this is where the judgement of God took another turn regarding the nation of Israel. As we can see the scripture that the direct judgement of God against Baal worship was is an attack on the economy and that’s because Baal worshippers believed that Baal is the provider of rain and good crops.
Another powerful strategy of the enemy which is part of the narrative of the spirit of Jezebel is the altering of words and their meaning, and I’ll like to highlight this point briefly we before begin to deal with the issue of how Jezebel infiltrate our lives, families, community and society.
Words, language, phrases are some of the most powerful tools in capturing and expressing culture. There’s absolutely no way we can capture the spirit of an Age or civilization without understanding the lingua of such society. Today, new language is be coined while old, relevant words are systematically being eroded, and this is what I’ll like us to briefly consider.
there are all sorts of languages in the world, yet none of them is without meaning.
11 If then I do not grasp the meaning of what someone is saying, I am a
foreigner to the speaker, and the speaker is a foreigner to me. 1 Corinthians
more I look into the scripture in the context of what we are assigned to
represent in the 21st-century society, the more I see a lack of
preparation and almost the sense of total disconnection in terms of awareness
and understanding of the nature of the season.
a sheep among wolves requires a deeper sense of the operation of the Spirit of
wisdom, and being wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove is certainly
operating from another realm of life that gives us the edge to effectively
represent the eternal intentions of the Father is an ever-increasing hustle
nature and character of the days we’ve been brought into demand we are skilled
in all the langue of the Chaldeans, the Babylonians, and the Egyptians, and we
should stop seeing this idea as a foreign idea or unbiblical. As we know, Jesus spoke Aramaic because that
was the language of the day. The big
question we should be asking ourselves is, what is today’s language?
I speak of language, please note that I am not merely referring to lingua
franca but the generation ideological, operating interface within societies; a
manner of thinking that connects people, places, things and even machines in a
manner that allows a general communication and understanding. Every generation
developed and operated through this kind of language they adopted in promoting
certain values, beliefs and ideologies we sought to promote.
ideologies, traditions and captured within the language. Language is the total
sum of what defines our identity.
we can notice, the past three decades or so, the world and its philosophers
have been busy developing a new language that has almost become matured in use
to promote their ideology today but the church has been caught sleeping in
combatting the wrong ideology behind this language.
unique thing we witness throughout the scripture that gave the people of God
the edge to stand out even in times of captivity is their ability to quickly
learn and use the language of their captors as an advantage to advance the
purposes of God. Indeed, language is a
medium of communication. However, we are seeing various forms of communicating
today that goes way beyond two people merely talking. Communication today has
become a very powerful tool to imprint and establish a philosophy that is
weaponized to kill, steal, and destroy.
art of communication has become one of the most lucrative 21st-century
business that yields lots of profit. My point, however, is not just about the
profiting side of communication but to highlight the deliberate war on
destroying the meaning and definition of words, as they are today viewed to
serve the certain narratives and agendas.
is being assaulted from all angles by those whose agenda is to destroy the very
fiber of society and sought to change the order of things redesign. Language
today, has transcended to the level of ideology; an ideology that should
promote certain ‘progressive beliefs’
live in a day where we are constantly being bombarded by various voices,
opinions, and ideologies that society seek to impress upon us regardless of our
interest or not. Unfortunately, many within the community of the Church have
not been adequately sensitized and prepared for these kinds of subtle
Indeed, these voices, when we face them, come across aggressively, demanding we take a side, and of cause, they want us to take their side because they’ve tried to desensitize the minds of many us using phrases the promotes their ideology of the new world order they are trying to create.
spiritual leaders are yet to fully comprehend the nature and complexity of the
battle before the Church, and I do hope this few points will wake us up as we
confront the spirit of Jezebel and other powerful Satanic principalities.
I strongly believe the Father gave the Church the platform of social media to
propagate the gospel of Christ to the lost, and to serve as a melting point to
speak redirection to the disgruntled members of the lost sheep of God. We are yet
to understand that the social media just like other platforms is actually a 21st-century
language we must learn like Daniel and his friends learnt the language of the
Babylonians in other to carry out the mandate of the kingdom.
who are masters of language will determine the direction of society, its
philosophy and economy. Everything today has a coded language that should be
learnt in order to utilize its power or influence. We, as the ecclesia is in
the midst of powerful warfare, and this war is all about influencing other
POWER OF LANGUAGE IN THE DEVELOPMENT CIVILIZATION
of the main reasons countries like America and China are fighting what is
termed as economic war is for the single reason of language. As I said,
languages, which the scripture also refers to as voices, has gone beyond voice
communication to an ideological war that is playing out on every form of system
that made has created to establish his dominance.
other words, those who are skilled in computer language have the edge of power
and influence. Introducing computer program language from early childhood is
necessary and highly critical for any nation or society to service.
of the wealthiest companies today is those dealing with computer language and
pregaming. I have used these points to further stress the point I am making.
world of social media has become a tool to increase the volumes of the voices
and noises to distract many away from the pathway of sound moral
judgement. There is all kind of voices
today that have been empowered and indeed, amplified through the tool of social
media that has brought more confusion and challenges regarding being able to
ascertain what the Spirit of the Lord will have many knows.
we talk about information overload, we are dealing with a reality that has come
to define the culture and structural fabric of today’s society. We are at the
twilight of a new sociocultural revolution; a revolution that is not fought
with guns and sword but with language and what I define as New Age opinions.
the last three decades or so, the English language has dramatically revolved to
the point that the meanings of certain key words that defines our social
lifestyle have been forced to change their meaning, or in some cases have been
reduced to obsolescence. Words are losing
their true meaning, and this is a deliberate act in reconfiguring how we
process thoughts, meaning, intentions, and actions.
agenda of the powers of darkness in this season carries various faces of
expression as we have earlier discussed, all depending on the position of the
battle line they find themselves and the objective they seek to achieve. As we continue to witness the systematic
introduction of certain phrases and words into the society the idea is to
reprogram how we see, process and accept meanings. One of the keyways the enemy can infiltrate
any heart or space is to change the meaning of words, particularly, if those
words expresses certain sense of morality, accountability and demand to
The American society and a larger part of Europe have lost a major ground during the first battle around language in the last three decades, and the loss opened the door for certain ideologies and philosophy to be introduced their society to the point that an average teen or adult today are struggling to comprehend or appreciate the meaning of certain words that ought to give them moral definition and a deep sense of correctness.
Right from the beginning of time, language has played a major role in the development of humans and the desire to build a strong, shared community, and we saw this greatly impressed during the building of the tower of Babel. Every time there’s a need to build a tower of [Babel] rebellion, human always seeks for a common language to implement such a task, even if they have nothing in common with each other. The enemy also play behind the call and support for
unity for as long as such call play towards its diabolic agenda.
Principle of spiritual warfare and kingdom authority over the high places
By Isaiah-Phillips Akintola
JEZEBEL ATTACKS THE PROPHETIC
we have noticed, this is a spirit that is not afraid to charge against the
gift, ministry, and office of the prophet. Arguably, the office of the prophet
is one of the highest governmental position of spiritual authority,
representing the activities of God’s affairs within the church and around the
realms of societal affairs across earth.
are in a day of the awakening of some dark, ancient, governmental spiritual
activities within the realms of men that need urgent, but bold, courageous and
strategic intervention. Let me highlight
at this point that all that is unfolding from the powers of darkness,
assaulting the very nature and identity of both the Church and the nations,
specifically, today from the house of Ahab with his wife, Jezebel is a direct
response or confrontation to the prophetic awakening and engagement of God’s
Saints across the earth.
Mount Carmel, a type of the gathering of the nation under the false leadership of Jezebel will be the very place and point where the power of God will finally judge this evil spirit of Jezebel and the male prophets who have yielded their authority and ministry under her illegitimate authority due to her financial economic influence. Jehu reflects the personification character the Lord will employ to finally destroy this character or entity that has sought to capture, incarcerate, and change the desired order of God for man and the society but it will take a courageous spirit of Elijah to stand instead of running from her.
Jezebel had that prophet, Elijah had commanded the execution of her false
prophets on Mount Carmel, she sent words to the prophet of God that by this
time tomorrow, your head will be given to the vulture to feed. This was a
direct confrontation to intimidate and neutralize the authority and the
position [influence] of the prophet of God in the land.
Spirit of Elijah.
Spirit of Elijah is shifting things back to the Father’s ordained program for
the earth. The Spirit of the two witnesses is being released to prepare the
ecclesia for the great showdown. The Spirit of Exodus is characterized through
the anointed grace of Moses while the Spirit of Elijah is the Spirit that
breaks the hold of identity bondage from the illegitimate power of Jezebel;
this is also known as the Spirit of fire.
Lord is restoring his wind and fire in this third day. We are told that before
the dreadful day of the Lord, the Lord will send Elijah who will turn the
hearts of the Father’s back to their sons, and the hearts of sons back to their
Father. This prophetic activity in the earth is activating the closer proximity
and visibility of their kingdom of God.
coming or emerging reality of God’s presence and glory to the earth is shaking
the foundations, ideologies, beliefs, philosophy and the dominant political
cultures that have ruled and reign in the minds of men for centuries. The day
of the Lord is emerging with great noise and the rolling away of everything
that can be shaken.
said to Jeremiah, this day, I have made you a prophet over nations…the
jurisdictional matron authority of a prophet in most cases, especially, a
seasoned, well-matured prophet reaches far beyond his or her place of
prophet based on one end of the continent can speak authoritatively, of course,
according to the directives, guidance and wisdom of the Spirit into another
city or nation. This is often carried according to the prophetic seasons and
initiatives of the Father around realms and continents. We saw Samuel,
Jeremiah, and many of whom we call minor prophets, operated in the apostolic,
governmental grace over nations. The
seven churches in the book of Revelation were all positioned prophetic across
Asia minor to spiritually influence the realms as we shall later examine
regarding the church of Thyatira.
governmental authority of prophets always creates a deep panic in the camp of
the enemy, and therefore, the assigned, principalities, powers, and wicked spirits,
over such realms gets agitated and therefore, tries to shut down or frustrate
the influence of the prophetic voice within such regions.
Spirit and operation of Jezebel are primarily assigned as a corrupt,
illegitimate, governmental spirit assigned to attack and frighten the prophets,
and their prophetic position and authority over cities and nations. The enemy is quite aware that if they can
stop or frustrate the operational initiatives and assignment of the prophet
over any community, city or region, such a region is already captured, it’s
only a matter of time.
and the fight for the Soul of America
cities, nations, and regions carry or wear certain unique character or
personality traits that heaven identifies, relates to, and engage in judgement
accordingly to such persons. It is critically important that the Saints,
particularly, those called and grace with the spirit of intercession to
identify the image and personality each city or nation wear, so that when they
are praying, they can address such personality.
city or nation in the Bible can be related to in particular name character.
Some cities, however, exhibit more than one character just as ordinary humans
can have more than one name or character expression. Most times in the
scriptures, the Lord addresses, cities by their predominant character
personality. In other words, the name of Israel can be exhibiting the character
of Sodom, therefore, when the Lord is addressing Israel in a context of a
certain issue, he will rather address Israel in the appropriate name that
captures the spirit he is addressing amongst is people.
nation has got a soul that allows certain inflow or outflows of values,
beliefs, and philosophy. This is one of the reasons we are called to war for
the soul of cities and nation. To effectively address the predominant spirit
over an atmosphere, you need to identify the spiritual personality, such city
or nation is operating, and in most cases, not always, such spirit can be found
within the character framework of the founding fathers of such society.
character trait that defines the image-soul of the nation is then passed down
the ages through those thoroughly vetted and initiated into key leadership
positions of such society. This is one of the reasons why we need to understand
that there’s another election behind the so-called democratic election citizens
votes are important, but not as important as the vote of those who are
following the agenda and narrative of what has been covenanted by the dedication
of what such city or nation should maintain.
An alliance is formed on behalf of cities and nations through certain
foreknowledge agreements that are sealed by blood, and this is where compromise
is reached regarding how such cities or nations should express themselves in
all manners of policies and values.
have said, my main objective in is article is to unmask the subtle, but a
powerful operational spirit of Jezebel within the current global affairs which
is unfortunately now shaping the narrative of most political debates and
discussions as the battle for the position of power in the new world order
reality is, the sociocultural ideologies of societies, including many, who
today claimed to be Christ-followers unfortunately has almost been eroded by
this wicked spirit of Jezebel to the degree that if what you think and say
don’t fit into the narrative of political correctness, then you’re labelled as
the enemy of God or enemy of the state.
powerful Satanic system has almost capture, crippled, and redefine the
identity, culture, and authority given by God to men to be responsible in presenting
themselves, families and communities at large before the Lord as kingdom
priests. As we shall later study, we
will highlight the main purpose of the spirit of Jezebel which is to mainly to
emasculate, frustrate, and neutralize the identity and authority of manhood
within society, and that is the current agenda across most countries in the
name of democracy but in particular, in Europe and America.
the institutionalized power of governance
are today seeing one of the greatest, satanic assault against the church and
the lives of ordinary Americans. There are various ancient, demonic stronghold
with being awaken today with the objective to disrupt, capture, and change the
very prophetic identity of the people of America and the rest of the world as
the Jezebel spirit leads this campaign.
assault should be worrisome to all awakened sons of God, particularly, those
with an advanced intercessory, leadership spirits, and elders within the order
of the fivefold ministry. America is a strategic nation that plays a role in
shaping the cultural and socioeconomic status of many continents. Whatever is
birth, established and accepted within the context of the America society, it’s
only a matter of times before such in adopted. The influence of America,
globally, is a two-way stream; it all depends on the school of thought or
agenda that is sought to be promoted from the political leadership class.
political party is an ideology that seeks to promote an ideological belief.
these beliefs are systematically integrated into the political process that
shapes and forms the policies that inform society. Therefore, we need to adjust
our understanding and narratives about economic struggle. Behind the agenda of
fighting for equality and prosperity, there are invisible key players that seek
to manipulate the outcome of things. [Rev 18:} speaks about global trade and
whom the world trades with.
is not just about goods and services; the heart of global trade is about the
influence of lives, territories and mineral resource, and no doubt America is a
key player in this global trade as we can with the current trade war between
the two parties biggest economy-China and America.
nation of America has never been so divisive on almost everything, and there’s
a reason for this. The election of Donald Trump as the president of America was
a game-changer. His appointment was a statement that will shake the very
foundation of certain narrative that seeks to utter and change the prophetic
program of God not only for America but for the world at large.
war between the nation of America and China is far beyond the idea of goods and
service; the is about the control of power, and it’s important we have precise
prophetic insight into what is going on. We have always taken the stand that
God has a definite, prophetic program for each nation. No nation exists by
their own effort or plan; God has set nations and regions where they are for
his prophetic mandate. Just like Egypt, Mali empire, Rome, and Greece to
mention a few, were a powerful trade route in the early century, United
Kingdom, America, China and Russia are today, some of the most powerful economies,
and this is translated to global influence or power.
is currently being invaded by the spirit of Jezebel, and it’s critical for us
to study what’s going on as we reexamine the word of God in finding the
prophetic weapon to paralyze this spirit. What makes this study important is
the fact that Jezebel operate under a false, illegitimate authority. Therefore,
it is highly important we understand what leadership and spiritual authority
mean, and how it’s designed to function, so we are not captured by false spirit
in the name of leadership influence.
this point, I’ll like to highlight some concerns I believe needs to be
addressed in the context of the revelation of the spirit of Jezebel in relating
to what is today known as political correctness, which is my strongest point
has almost crippled the leadership authority ordained to guide and protect
families and individuals from the assault of the forces of darkness.
of the things that have become almost the trademark of the current political
landscape of the European society and of cause, the larger American political
narrative is the subjects on the accuracy of truth definition and other concepts
around moral values, issues relating to biblical position of sociocultural and
institutional development. These important fabrics of strong, family and
institutional structures are almost no longer accepted, nor is room given to
teach and debate on these subjects due to what is now known as gender
we are increasingly seeing certain important subject that speaks to the issue
of moral correctness, faith, identity, the natural definition and
characteristics of the male species, and the concept of womanhood from a sound,
biblical perspective are today seen as unaccepted In the promotion of the idea
of progressive beliefs.
push for humanist value has almost eroded the right order of human existence
and this is being promoted by the ideology of the new world order global
narrative. Therefore, the idea of gender-sensitive has become a weapon the
powers of darkness are today using to short down the voice of truth that needs
to be had regarding the current distortion of the identity and structure of
human values within society.
many within the Church are almost crippled to speak out regarding certain laws
and institutional practices that are contrary to their faith and believe due to
the fear of powerful political backlash against their organization, this is
totally unaccepted. Issues that deals with order, leadership and correctness
regarding homes, family, marriage, manhood, and womanhood are all today left untouched.
children are becoming more and more confused and dysfunctional without the
right leadership identity and authority to bring nurturing, correction,
direction, and affirmation to them because the authority of father has almost
been stripped from them through the Satanic influence of the spirit of Jezebel
controlling the state powers.
promotion of feminist power is destroying the very structure and order of
family and societal values, and this is presenting feeding into how many now
view the principle of God’s word. Many are now interpreting the word of God
with the humanist and feminist lens view and this totally unaccepted.
perversion of sexuality and the right order of identity, which speaks into who
we are as the male man or a female, are almost now known existence. The moment
you begin to deal with subject that points to certain wrong values connected to
the female entity, suddenly it becomes an issue of the lack of gender
spiritual leaders are increasingly become frustrated due to the fact that they
are not able to exercise the spiritual authority God has given to them in
dealing with issues as they should be because they are afraid of not being
politically correct. The idea of political correctness or gender equality is an
idea that was systematically introduced into the political space through a
Satanic agenda to create a false narrative of inequality on issue of gender so
that the feminist agenda can use such a platform to promote the various program
they desire to push to society and the various institutions of society.
truth is, this has been the plan of Satanic agenda in promoting Jezebel
influence as the economic system, empowered by state and global institutions to
silence the voice of truth and to discredit and neutralize the authority of
faith and God’s word in their so-called New Age, progressive society.
this, I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and
the earth was illuminated by his splendour. 2With a mighty voice he shouted: “‘Fallen!
Fallen is Babylon the Great!’ a She has become a dwelling for demons and a
haunt for every impure spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for
every unclean and detestable animal. 3 For all the nations have drunk the
maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery
with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive
The spirit of Jezebel which today has taken the form of political and economic authority and has infiltrated almost every arm of government institutions and sociocultural view.
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.

Unmasking the architecture of Jezebel
WHO DEFINES YOUR RIGHT AND WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF JEZEBEL?
this part three we are going to be defining the spirit of Jezebel, but before
we do that, lets conclude the thought of line we’ve established in our former article
on part 2
The enemy the Church is confronting today is not interested in fighting a random battle; he is very deliberate, precise, and strategic in his use of weaponry and the nature of how the battle should play out.
Therefore, we must never put ourselves in a situation where the enemy can define the battleground or the weapon of warfare.
When we allow the enemy to use his narrative of weapons known as gender inequality, gender insensitivity, feminism, gay right, child right, human right, social justice, and the so many ideas of reasons, defined through its own paradigm narratives, values, and belief system, we will eventually become entrapped and defeated.
The enemy has mastered the art of using State machinaries in circumventing legitimate reasons for specific laws and policies of the land.
The devil today is using sensual, humanist, ideologies, and wisdom as an effective tool in trying to frustrate and prevent the values and standard of the kingdom of God from being established in society.
our rights to another definition of rights and false advocacy is the most foolish
thing we can do, and am afraid, we have done.
our rights to some advocacy with a different agenda that refuses to acknowledge
the values and moral identity of God’s definition is indirectly abdicating our authority
to the lies of the enemy who is entering our gardens again to challenge the authority
and influence of heaven’s values over our space.
afford to make the same mistake the first man-made in the Garden. We cannot afford
to get into slumber as women again; we cannot allow the enemy to use our inherent
power of influence persuasion to manipulate things against the order of God.
allow the enemy to pervert and corrupt your administrative capacity to destroy what
we are called to build and protect, and lastly, women, you cannot afford to offer
your Bodies to fallen [spirits] angels’ knowns as sons of God to birth illegitimate,
rebellious sons in the earth again. Genesis chapter 6
today is women today engaging in sexual intercourse with demonic spirits to gain
influence, power, authority to push their agenda of male dominance.
one of the seven angels with the seven bowls came and told me, “Come, I will show
you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits on many waters. 2The kings
of the earth were sexually immoral with her, and those who dwell on the earth were
intoxicated with the wine of her immorality.” … Revelation 17:1-2
carry no gender
we deal with a Satanic force like Goliath, we should know that we are dealing with
in terms of the spiritual character that would manifest on the battleground. In
most cases, we might find ourselves dealing with an intimidating, domineering male
figure kind of character, that takes advantage of our lack of spiritual covering,
insecurity, fear, and of course, the lack of the assurance of the presence of God.
things are not limited, or necessarily defined by the gender they dress to manifest
themselves. I shall further explain is concept
later, because I do think it’s highly important we deal with this misconception
the enemy has often used to shut down certain important issues and teachings we
need to carry out in the Body of Christ or even in the society because we don’t
want to sound to be offending the opposite sex.
no room for ignorance or sentiment in this season of advanced warfare. There’s a reason why the Father sent his Son to
die for humanity as a male man and not a woman, and there’s a reason why wisdom
is often referred to as a figure of a woman. If you study the book of revelation,
you’ll immediately notice that the ultimate battle is between two women and not
two men. In fact, the battle of creation right from the book of Genesis to the book
of the end-revelation is about two women, two kinds of wisdom, and two types of
not create the woman as the man’s competitor; no. Elohim, in his sovereign wisdom,
authority, and power created the woman as man’s [complement] completion. If this
perspective is not clear, we will always embrace the humanist narrative of the New
Age which has almost succeeded in putting the woman against the man, and this is
the number one reason many Churches, marriages and families are imploding and collapsing
the Father does, carries a unique, prophetic, fingerprint objective, and we should
carefully seek to understand his ways and arrangements of life in the light of these
objectives, including the role and position of the female and male, man, so we don’t
fall into the deception of the New Age spirit that is pushing certain feminist narrative
that is painting God as bias or sexist. We must track and unravel the nature of
spirit manifesting through an antagonistic, feminist and humanist character.
neglect to address this important aspect, am afraid that we have bought into the
very narrative the enemy wants the Church and the nations to accept. Both the beautiful
image, character, and inherent administrative value of women is currently under
relentless assault, and many of our sisters, particularly, our church women have
not yet truly identified this attack, even though we all can see these devastating
assaults against our homes and family institutions. So, let us attempt to define what the spirit of
Jezebel is as we continue to unravel the operation of this evil spirit.
THE SPIRIT OF JEZEBEL
know what is now restraining him, so that he may be revealed at the proper time.
7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work, but the one who now restrains
it will continue until he is taken out of the way. 8And then the lawless one will
be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will slay with the breath of His mouth and annihilate
by the majesty of His arrival.… 2 Thessalonians 2:6-8
the points we’ve highlighted we can begin to have a vivid image of this entity anointed
to fight and resist the plan and purposes of God for a nation, society, family,
and individuals. We must make it plain again that while the default operational
framework of this spirit function through the persona of a female character, it
is, however, not a female spirit as we have explained, nor is the spirit limited
to a woman character as much as it prefers a woman character to operate.
is an operational, governmental principality that is set up from the powers of darkness
to frustrate the redemptive and prophetic initiatives of God over nations. To effectively
identify the image and character of this spirit we will have to go to the book of
Revelation. Any spirit we see in the Old Testament that shows up again in the book
of revelation is worthy of note because there’s every likelihood that we are dealing
with a territorial and generational principality.
I’ve said earlier, Jezebel is a principality assigned over realms that seeks to
control, corrupt, hinder, frustrate and destroy in order and pattern of God’s intent.
When our Lord Jesus Christ described Satan as a thief that has come to steal, kill,
and destroy, this description perfectly fit into the character of Jezebel.
the fact that Jezebel kills the prophets of God and send the Saints into hiding,
she is in fact, a thief that forcefully takes want doesn’t belong to her and kills
the owner as we see in the case of Naboth [1 Kings 21:5-6]. This spirit goes further to destroy men’s identity
by emasculating their manhood by destroying the entire family order and system of
existence. Further still, Jezebel turns the hearts of a whole nation from serving
the true God according to the biblical pattern of worship to serving Baal which
is her primary objective.
words, the pursuit of idol worship [the worship of self, feminism] and sexual perversion
is the trademark of the spirit of Jezebel when she is unleashed upon society. The
scripture informs us that when Jehu was sent to carry out the final judgment of
God upon Jezebel that she beautifies her face and dressed her heir, postured herself
by the window to entice Jehu.
was never (empowered by the Spirit) anointed by the prophet of God for this high-level
assignment, I believe that Jehu would have been seduced by Jezebel’s charm, and
he would have been able to carry out the execution against her. All the Spirit of the Lord is highlighting regarding
this evil spirit has a direct implication and lesson for us today, so, we are not
entrapped by the seductive, destructive spirit of Jezebel.
Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that
day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness a is revealed,
the man doomed to destruction. 4He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything
that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple,
proclaiming himself to be God. 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
of Jezebel is one of the major high places that demands we collaborate our God-given
governmental grace, resources, and capacity to effectively deal with, less, our
children and the next generation continue to suffer her attack. It took a three-generational
anointing to finally destroy this spiritual entity wearing the persona of a woman.
mandate is to unmask the architectural structure of this powerful Satanic spirit
that has crawled into the very framework of society and is now expressing false
prophetic and teaching spirit within the Body of Christ.
can see according to the book of Revelation chapter two that this Satanic spirit
took upon herself a persona of a prophet and claimed the position of a teacher.
These are two profound areas that shape the minds and believe system of the people
of God, and the society we are assigned to disciple, and if we allow this spirit
to capture the office and ministry of the prophet and that of the teacher, our apostolic
thrust is as good as being compromised. It’s important we state this point clear
that there’s no bias in the Father; he does not choose sides.
our acceptance or rejection of the spirit of Jezebel on the premise of gender indeed,
reflects our immaturity and the lack of spiritual understanding regarding the ministry
of redemption, of cause, to live in some form of self-denial in the operation of
this spirit within individuals, families, community and nations is to have bought
the lies and deception of the enemy. The
Enemy throughout history as used the card of race, gender, religion, culture, and
inequality to mention a few, to perpetuate his destructive agenda, but the church
itself, in her spiritual blindness, has exacerbated this evil.
his wisdom, created male and female as part of his eternal prophetic plan and governmental
administrative executives on earth. The structure of community which begins from
the family unit is a powerful expression of the Father’s wisdom and creativeness
in growing and developing humanity. These two organs of government called man and
woman carries a unique assignment in the support and execution of the Father’s eternal
program on earth. We shall later expand on this thought as we continue to develop
the foundational framework of this subject.
time I did an intensive teaching on this subject was in the year 2001, and in fact,
I found one of the notes I wrote back then on this subject recently, and the truth
is, there’s still a great sense of relevancy and coherency to what the Spirit of
the Lord said back then to the current emphasis of the Spirit of the Lord. The only
difference is that my understanding of interpreting what was written then is now
broadened and clearer as the spirit of wisdom has brought perspective and maturity
in the arts of prophetic insight and interpretation.
of spiritual activity today has drastically changed at an accelerated level since
2001 yet, the problems back then, are as vicious and complex as they are today.
But as we can see, these challenges, particularly, the attack on race, morality,
truth, justice, and religious rights have become more hostile to the point of polarizing
society. It’s as if the stage is being set for the anti-Christ, the man of sin to
take the stage openly.
of Satanic forces of the earth has been so unprecedented, and therefore, it will
be right for us to begin to contextualize the present prophetic activity of God,
particularly when we examine what is currently playing out within the political
ideology of the nations around the world but in particular, the United State of
America due to its power and influence globally. It is important we thoroughly
examine the present battle taking place in America, to appreciate the degree of
the influence and impact of the spirit of Jezebel.

ARCHITECTURE OVER THE NATIONS
by Isaiah-Phillips Akintola
Revelation 2: 18
“To the angel of the church in
These are the words of the Son
of God, whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished
bronze. 19 I know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and
perseverance, and that you are now doing more than you did at first.
20 Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. 21 I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. 22 So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. 23 I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds.
comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life and
have it to the full.
me to start this note by defining the meaning of a thief because it gives us a
footing and a perspective into what we shall be examining at the cause of this
message. A thief is defined as a person who steals another person’s property,
especially by stealth [cautious and surreptitious] and without using force or
threat of violence.
scriptural declaration by our Lord Jesus Christ himself and the definition of a
thief give a clear, in-depth, characteristics of the subtle nature of the battle
we’ve found ourselves as the Body of Christ. This description further defines
for us how we should engage the reality of the days we’re in with a deep sense
of cautiousness, sobriety, and prophetic discernment.
are back to the very same point and method the enemy used in invading the
Garden in Genesis without the voice or visibility of the man placed in charge
to challenge the invasion of his space and territory.
the Garden was invaded and violated by Lucifer, the Church and the nations
today are being invaded by the same enemy who is now using the rebellious spirit
and persona of the woman called Jezebel.
increase of deception and seduction to lure the nations and the Saints to
follow the charming voice of the woman who sits upon many waters, according to
the book of Revelation has become increasely visible in many homes, government
institutions and Churches across the globe. The degree of compromise in today’s
Church as seen in the society is a testimony to the failure of sound
focus of this teaching, we are about to examine is the concept of a failed
leadership. Leadership is about being present and visible! Jezebel thrives
where sound, biblical spiritual leadership has been compromised as we saw
regarding King Ahab of Israel.
spirits of deception, delusion, and corruption begins to operate in a society,
family, or Church when fathers and leaders abdicate their position and
responsibility. It is my strong believe
that behind the woes of today’s civilization is the reality of leadership failure.
We shall later consider these points as the Lord will grant us direction.
There’s no doubt the nature of the battle the Church of the Lord is currently faced with, characterize the spirit of Jezebel, and we are going to examine this spirit as we allow the Lord to open our eyes of wisdom and spiritual understanding. We shall look at what Jezebel is currently stealing, killing and destroying both the Body of Christ and within society.
no doubt we are living in one of the most intense seasons of spiritual warfare seen
the beginning of human history, and this battle will continue to increase even
as the Church and the nations enter the scope of the visibility of the
manifestation of the kingdom of God.
closer we step towards the declaration of the appearance of Christ’s government
on earth, the more intense our battles, birth pang, and of course, our tribulation.
sociocultural war of ideology and identity dysfunctionality we are seeing today,
even in the Church, reveals without a doubt the narrative objective the enemy
desire to see. However, this battle is far from you a cultural war; it is a
spiritual battle that is geared toward a total annihilation of human dignity,
morality, and obedience toward the standard of God and his kingdom.
those aware of this diabolic attack and have been well built and equipped with
the sevenfold spirit of Christ will stand their ground in facing this deadly assault.
Ignorance of the ways of the Lord and his dealings both within human affairs and
the Church of the living God is already costing many in the Body of Christ in a
great deal, but I hope that through some points that will be highlighted
through this note will help you see things in divine perspective.
is everything when it comes to understanding and responding to the demands and
challenges of our day. Both reading and studying the word of God in the light
of revelation and spiritual understanding in such a manner that gives clarity
and illumination is a high virtue required today in dealing with many of the seemingly
complex questions being asked, and I hope by the end of this resource note, with
the series of videos webinars already published on this topic should add to
the insights and keys of the kingdom to
effectively bring answers, solution, and direction.
current assault to change God’s moral code, order, values, and standard of
existence is a deliberate attack on the wisdom of God that has intensified in a
manner that is almost eroding the position of spiritual authority and
leadership within the community of God’s people, and this is where we need to walk
in reclaiming our position of biblical truth and its foundation.
The assault of Satanic powers through the spirit of Jezebel is one major battle today’s church and society is faced with, and unfortunately, many, including some of our spiritual leaders are not adequately equipped nor prepared to face. This is a battle that has already claimed many lives in the Body of Christ.
My joy however is, the Lord does not wait for everyone to be ready before he begins to equip his Saints to rise and fight the enemy already causing casualties across the nations.
We are now being giving spiritual tools, for divine upgrade; additional kingdom keys to unlock truths that will allow us to strategically address certain challenges that may seem as complex, or even mysterious to us at this end of days. Getting the keys and access the realms in the Father are two different things.
It seems to me while ready Mathews 16:20 that the first key to access within the bunch of keys is the revelation of Christ. And Jesus Christ said to his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ.
look at some scripture to give us perspective.
I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the
gates of Hades will not prevail against it. 19 I will give you the keys of the
kingdom of heaven. Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and
whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” 20 Then He admonished
the disciples not to tell anyone that He was the Christ. Mathews 16:18-20
foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was
clearly portrayed as crucified. 2 I would like to learn just one thing from you:
Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by believing what you heard?
3 Are you so foolish? After beginning by means of the Spirit, are you now trying
to finish by means of the flesh?
the angel of the church in Thyatira write: These are the words of the Son of God,
whose eyes are like blazing fire and whose feet are like burnished bronze. 19 I
know your deeds, your love and faith, your service and perseverance, and that you
are now doing more than you did at first.
I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet.
By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of
food sacrificed to idols. 21 I have given her time to repent of her immorality,
but she is unwilling. 22 So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make
those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways.
23 I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am he
who searches hearts and minds, and I will repay each of you according to your deeds.
ten horns are ten kings who will rise from this kingdom. After them another king,
different from the earlier ones, will rise and subdue three kings. 25 He will speak
out against the Most High and oppress the saints of the Most High, intending to
change the set times and laws, and the saints will be given into his hand for a
time, and times, and half a time. 26 But the court will convene, and his dominion
will be taken away and completely destroyed forever.…
the reality of the season
live in days where the prevailing culture of Babylon and the ancient, established
high places has almost swallowed the moral compass and spiritual identity of many
who claimed to be followers of Christ and members of his kingdom.
culture of the New Age spirits and the awakened occultic, eastern demonic worship
order has almost succeeded in changing the names, language, diet, and apparels of
many, particularly, in the Western world concept of Christianity as we’re now seeing
in Africa and the rest of the world.
Satanic agenda that seeks to change times and set laws, continue to harass the Saints
and the nations, [ set time and laws, meaning, moral, ethical standards of human
existence and biblically sound spiritual values] many, unfortunately, have given
into this false agenda and lies because they were never grounded in the spiritual
philosophy of a sound, apostolic biblical paradigm.
of Christians today are now being assimilated into the very way of life we’ve been
empowered and commissioned [sent] to change; the people we are called to redeem,
disciple, and deliver for the Lord have almost managed to capture our weak spiritual
position and ideology of ‘Christianity’. They are pursuing the agenda to change
the times and the laws of God before our very eyes while we hide in caves and holes
as we see during the reign of Ahab and Jezebel.
that captured the kings of the earth have managed to bewitch and seduce society,
they’ve been charmed and bewitched; the spell of Jezebel is today written all over
our desires, actions, conducts, our pattern of thinking, desires, spiritual, and
emotional preferences, unfortunately.
INTERPRETING WITH ADVANCED SIGHT REGARDING GOD’S INTERVENTION OVER THE PRESENT BATTLE OVER THE NATION OF AMERICA, SOUTH AFRICA, AND THE REST OF THE NATIONS.
Several parallels, or do I say paradox is taking place within the nations, particularly, in America, South Africa, Nigeria, as well as the UK but it will take a genuinely advanced, prophetic ( spirit) sight to bring clear prophetic, perspectives and interpretations to these things to the extent that we are not overrun by our views or well ingrained religious and nationalistic or globalist prejudice in our analysis.
13 Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, “Are you for us or for our enemies?”
14 “Neither,” he replied, “but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.” Then Joshua fell facedown to the ground in reverence, and asked him, “What message does my Lord e have for his servant?”
Only those who have explicit, in-depth knowledge of biblical definition and spiritual perspective regarding present, global crisis are able to clearly see things, and correctly separate truth from their own human (views) interpretation and expectations.
When Joshua saw this man standing, he immediately placed a presumption perspective and expectation on the stranger without allowing the man with a draw sword to introduce himself, and this is the unfortunate stand or view many Christians have chosening in approaching the many complex issues of life. Sometimes, the place or point where we stand regarding the battle of life can preoccupy and overwhelm our thoughts to the degree that they negatively impact or blur our judgement.
While standing before a type of a Jericho’s resistance challenge, we should never allow our prophetic perspective of approach to be compromised. Keeping a perspective of balance of judgement in decision without being pushed into a comer of concluding on issues we are get to get divine judgement could cost us.
We must be cautious that we don’t continue to promote the narrative of God is for us, and he is against them. The perspective of Which side God is regarding certain issues must require well matured, biblical and spiritual insight. Our battle must always be on. The point of principle and value and never on the personality. The rules of engagement regarding the battles of life, especially in this season demands we excercise the finest of redemptive approach to any situation as kingdom regents. Joshua was taught a good listen that Jehovah is not a politician; God is neither a Republican nor is he a Democrat.
The God of America, as he is likewise the God of the rest of the world is not on the side of our religious or political biases.
He maintains his position of neutrality in his redemption purpose of all human.
It is us that must align our belief, motive, and agendas to his define standard.
For us to precisely see and appreciate the deliverance methodology of the Father for our nation and generation, we have come to the place of circumcision.
The Lord of Host wants to remove the reproach of our nations, including that of the United States of America, but it will not be done on some charismatic, believe or manipulation of intervention.
Hearts must be brought to God in sincere repentance from our blind spots, religious prejudice, our ingrained superior complex attitudes.
Pride must come down, and humility must be exalted and allow to flow like a river starting from the heart of the head of state to the ordinary Jones on the street.
Everyone needs to be circumcised by heart as we approach the battle of Jericho.
This battle will only be won through the power of obedience and the presence of God.
The priest must now take their place as the undress themselves from the spirit of pride and arrogance that kept them blind. It’s time to be redressed to bear the government of the nation upon their shoulders again.
The governing authority that will bring healing to the nation of America, South Africa and the rest of the world will flow from shoulders that have perfected the sacred call of carrying the (ARK) Presence of God.
May the Lord continue to grant us his grace and wisdom to both see and share in his truth with the finest of redemptive spirit, and ascended revelation in this season.
Iron must continue to sharpen iron for us to develop and maintain clearer, biblical, prophetic insight and wisdom in our interpretation!
Thanks for stopping by to read the concluding article on this subject, I hope it will help to realign your heart to the current emphasis of the Lord, or maybe, reaffirm the things you already know regarding this vital subject.
There are still lots of loose ends regarding our understanding of redemption we need to carefully address, especially in this period, heaven is inviting us to a more ascended, position of governmental authority and representation.
Countless many, as we can see in the word of God and in modern history were defeated by the enemy during their prime days of strength and glory. A very good example of this is that of Rehoboam, Son of King Solomon. The scripture affirms that when Rehoboam’s position as the King of Israel was firmly established with all the fortified cities he had built and the great numbers of armies at his disposal, he and the rest of the people abandoned the laws and ways of God.
It was clear that this king did not understand the principle
of redemption, solidly built on an ongoing, developmental relationships. He thought
he could use God to achieve something grand for himself and the nation with maintaining
a heart of love and commitment to the ways of God. This is the same value system many have
applied towards their relationship and interaction with the things of the
Spirit, and this is the reason why many are struggling to find joy, peace, and righteousness
in their so-called Christian faith.
2 Chronicles 12:1-2
After Rehoboam’s position as king was established and he had become strong, he and all Israel a with him abandoned the law of the Lord. Because they had been unfaithful to the Lord, Shishak king of Egypt attacked Jerusalem in the fifth year of King Rehoboam.
For us to effectively present ourselves as accompany of them ready to represent the Father’s prophetic intention for this season, we must close the various gaps of truth, insight, Revelation, and wisdom within the basic philosophy of our spirituality.
Becoming an integrated, spiritual, kingdom entity is a must in our qualification of advancement to the next frontier, and I do believe this is one of the main reasons the Spirit of the Lord is calling our attention to this subject of the salvation of the Soul.
What differentiates David from Saul was where they stand regarding the work with God in leading the people, and how they responded to the voice of God when they were both found wanting. Perfection is never about a sinless life as critically important, we daily press towards a sacred life of consecration, but about how we honestly respond to our sinful acts.
King Saul responded with lies, deceit, and self-glory to the voice of God’s judgment while David responded in repentance, humility, and submission to the judgment of God. These two individuals highlight the configuration of the hearts of those called and anointed by God to carry out an assignment for him. Pride and self-deception are one of the most powerful weapons the enemy has used right from the days of the fall of the first man and his wife in the garden.
To effectively deal with the dysfunctional character, nature
within us, we must be honest, truthful and willing to allow God into every
aspect of our lives. Those who hide behind the term, ‘am a Christian’ without
adhering to the value standard of a Christ-like life are deceiving themselves,
and the enemy loves such individuals.
Apostle Paul, in his
letter to Timothy, who was the resident Elder of the Church of Ephesus,
highlighted this critical point, which is still the main challenge of today’s
Church, which is, the idea that we can replace authenticity with a form. A form
is that which looks like, feels like, sound like, but in fact, it’s fake. This
text speaks of having a form of godliness but denying its power is something
that should seriously concern any true spiritual leader and any serious
follower of Christ.
The form of godliness has almost replaced the authentic,
particularly, amongst spiritual leadership, and this has unfortunately opened
the many lives to the lies of the enemy, particularly in the arena of
spirituality. Many of the messages, teachings, and so-called biblical
initiatives we see being practiced today are nothing but products of forms of
godliness while the power of the gospel of the kingdom is being denied.
This lie has eaten deep into how the majority see and relate
to the salvation’s relationship. There’s a lot of activity to show some sense
of commitment to the ways of God while deep beneath the hearts of this
professed believers this a disconnection. The mismatch in the Church today is a
serious issue of not understanding the nature or function of the operation of
the Soul, which I believe needs to be urgently addressed before it’s too late.
THE COST OF PRESUMPTION
To presume, and generalize knowledge, and the progressive
experience in spiritual subjects is to make one of the greatest errors in the
art of spiritual journey. Spiritual things from biblical perspective are often
not related to formulas. Secondly, when it comes to the issue of Spiritual
maturity, you begin to talk about the reality of kingdom principle and Christ
lifestyle which is alien to what many have come to believe and accept as
Most of the teachings and traditions being practiced in our
Christian gathering and denominations are a clear extension of the refined
Roman-catholic Spirit and Judaism, traditional practice. These two schools of
thoughts are the most influential customs that influence what today known and
called the Christian religion is, and of course, they are not consistent with
what Christ established as his ecclesia.
You must have noticed that this two-main influence, with many others,
carries a form of godliness, but denies the power of right biblical value
A FORMULA OF RELATIONSHIP, WHICH ONE SHALL IT BE?
A formula by design will always give a predicted result as
long as your calculation is defined and precise in relating to your expected
result. However, in spiritual dealings and realities, you can accurately get
all the formulas right and still not arrive at your predictive, expected
outcome. Why? The Father never intends to relate to his body of the earth from
a mentality or perspective of some formulas or laws. Yes, in our early days of the
salvation experience, we might assume that the Father can be related to from a
position of specific formulas.
MY PERSONAL JOURNEY
Example, I could still
remember when I was growing in the Lord, often times when I pray regarding
certain issues of need, I will usually get my prayer answered almost exactly
the way I have requested it. I had somewhat mastered the formula of my approach
to God in terms of what I desire him to do in my life, and to some level, it
seems the Father was playing along in relating to me in terms of this limited,
somewhat religious mind frame I was using to approach him.
I was innocent, naïve, or even ignorant regarding the ways of
the kingdom. Back then, I am not sure if I do understand what salvation truly
means and how to experience the spiritual life within my new relationship with
All I did was an extension of what I see many do around. I
didn’t understand that there’s anything like spiritual development or the right
protocol value of approaching the things of the kingdom. All I understood was
the language of the word of faith; confess it and claim it, and then, a lot of
hype in my praise and prayers; and of course, a passionate sense of worship
without necessarily understanding what I was doing as long as there’s the
result. I was result oriented and not principle and value focus like many
believers back then.
If I can pray the more and worship with more passion, God
will answer my prayers. As you can see, my motive of doing those things was
already predicated on what God can do for me, rather than, doing those things
because I am a son, called and chosen to give glory to my Father who has
already given all things to me.
RITUAL OR SPIRITUALITY?
The unfortunate thing however was, these powerful spiritual principles
of approach back then were taught from a perspective of what I can gain or get
in return for my benefit. Basically, this concept, or idea of spirituality, is
a user-friendly philosophy of spirituality’. Everything is passionately pursuit
if it is going to bring me a blessing, increase, promotion personally, and
prosperity regardless of the alternative Father may have in store for me.
As you can see, the principles were right, but the motives
were utterly wrong. Unfortunately, this is how many are still approaching the
things of God, which is formula based. This is an approach of a slave, orphan
spirit many are still expressing in their spiritual quest. The Father does not desire to deal with any
of his children from this fallen, humanist, religious value. Formula is a deep
reflection of the ministry of the law still operating in our lives.
We are called to journey in the redeemed nature of our Spirit
in a true relationship; a relationship that is born out of trust, faith, and
complete obedience to the ways and life of the kingdom of God.
The term relationship is one of the most abused and
misunderstood words today, both in the body of Christ and generally in society.
And this is a deliberate, strategic plan from the kingdom of darkness to
corrupt, dilute, and desensitize the power and value the word, like many others
within the hearts of men.
WHEN SPIRITUALITY MEANS SOMETHING ELSE
There’s no strategy as powerful as reducing or nullifying the
meaning of something in the public domain until such a thing means something
else from its original meaning of intent. This is one subtle way the enemy has
tried desensitizing our spiritual sight and values, especially in this
contemporary Age. The battle to reduce the meaning of words and discredit the
power of God’s values and philosophy has been ever-increasing warfare in our
We live in a day where truth today is viewed as relative.
People now have the audacity to challenge the truth and value behind every word
spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ. Keeping
the true meaning and intention of words in it’s original, intended, context has
become critical to the objective in maintaining the very essence and value of
The purpose and value of truth are reduced if the words used
in conveying such truth is not clear or understood to be saying what it is
intended for. Therefore, if I say I love you, and you don’t understand the original
meaning and purpose of the word love, you will undoubtedly borrow the general
meaning and value system society uses to measure the value of what I am saying
to you. This is a grave matter that needs those in the apostolic ministry to
clarify, at least this is one of the core objectives of those in the office of
the authentic apostolic governmental ministry.
Words are no more words if they’ve lost their very essence, values, and
RELATIONSHIP, A JOURNEY TO SPIRITUALITY
Therefore, to say that relationship is the very essence of
our spiritual development is a serious statement when we capture the true
essence of the word term relationship from divine meaning and perspective. A relationship is the single thread that ties
the mystery of the Godhead together in that order of perfect unity that makes
them one in three. My point is, there’s more to understand in the very nature
and life of God in relating to relationship than we can comprehend with our
unregenerated frame of thought.
The idea of a religious formula, rituals, and the inscription
of the laws is easily understood from the carnal, humanist frame of thinking,
but God does not live in such a realm. Even when he gave us the law, a type of
formula, was for the objective of schooling us to understand certain
fundamental principles required to build the necessary character values have
been in living in slavery, abusive lifestyle for a long season. It’s more
challenging to manage freedom if one has been in bondage for as long as one can
You need to set specific guidelines and rules in place to
protect those coming into this freedom. Freedom can soon have turned to
self-bondage when the right values and understanding of lifestyle has not been
taught. This is what the Lord did when he gave the children of Israel the
commandment of approaching him and relating to one another in the camp.
The moment we move into the art of living according to his
eternal design, the good, elementary principle of formula and laws no longer
suffices or applies to us because we’ve transited into the lifestyle of the
covenant through the blood of Jesus Christ, for this is the heart of our
calling in kingdom order of relationship.
Back to the point, I was trying to make about the idea of
maturity. I have highlighted all this explanation to make this critical point
that I hope you’ll now be able to appreciate. You cannot presume or jump into
conclusion when it comes to spiritual development and maturity. Therefore, to
assume the fact that you stand shoulder to shoulder with your teacher at
school, or boss at the workplace suddenly makes you equal with them.
Or better still, to
assume the fact that you have the same matured body features and figures with your
parents suddenly make you equally developed as your mother or Father is to
express utter ignorance that can cost you dearly according to the word of God.
Maturity, in particular, spiritual maturity, is not merely
defined by a person’s Age; if your definition of maturity or the respect of
individuals is merely limited to their age gap or material acquisition and
influence in society, then you’ve certainly proven that you lack the knowledge
of basic life principles and the core values that drives human existence.
I see this sense of
disrespect within the body of Christ in the name of spirituality, especially on
social media. If you have ‘knowledge’, such knowledge, regardless of how potent
must function within an atmosphere of humility, honour, wisdom and respect. If
your quest for knowledge exhibit pride and arrogance, you have nullified the
law that makes truth work within your life, and therefore, you will be rejected
from accessing divine things.
The template that gives you the code to access spiritual
Revelation is a template of humility to those who are given the mission of
spiritual apostolic stewardship. Because many have not been taught that
spiritual things operate through the ministry of what could be likened to the
ministry of certain folks within kingdom called gatekeepers, they assume they
can just walk into the presence of the Father to ask for anything in terms of
THE PROTOCOL OF BIBLICAL SPIRITUALITY
Spiritual things work through divine protocol and these protocols
work through specific underpinning value systems that interfaces between heaven
and earth. If you lack the knowledge of the ways of the Spirit, you will be
denied access to the ascended life of God, or the things of his kingdom,
especially in a position or atmosphere where there’s a corporate gathering of
There are people within the body of Christ who are designed
over regions to be portals of revelatory access. These elders at spiritual
gates of nations, cities and communities regulate and carefully administrate
the apostolic construction, or prophetic engagements that generally flows into
regions and atmospheres according to heaven’s divine season.
This is the idea behind the Church and the angle position
within the seven nations in Asia minor according to the book of Revelation.
Those churches are planted to regulate the spiritual, socioeconomic, and
political destiny of their cities for Christ. They are the original governing
leaders of their communities.
