Jezebel Is Also A Political Movement
author | Mack Major
Often when we speak about Jezebel, we leave out the number one thing about Jezebel that actually matters the most: she was a queen. Meaning, Jezebel above everything else was someone who lived and moved in the political realm first and foremost as a politician.
Without her political connections and influence Jezebel would have had no power whatsoever to enact her evil agenda.
Let's back up for a sec.
Jezebel was the daughter of a powerful pagan king named Ethbaal. We know these were pagans because they literally took the name of their god Baal (also pronounced or spelled as Bel) as part of their names and official titles.
This is why JezeBAAL was given the name that she's famous for. This was nothing unique. Many Jews also carried the name of their God in their own names, as evidenced by the Yah or El in their names. For instance: MariYAH (Mariah), HannYAH (Hannah), JeremiYAH (Jeremiah), IsaYAH (Isiah), ElijYAH (Elijah), EzekiEL, YAHhoshaphat (Jehoshaphat), etc.
In order to keep peace with the neighboring kingdom of Israel, King Ethbaal decided to give his own daughter in marriage to King Ahab of Israel—something that would cement their peace and allow for them to conduct uninterrupted business together. The problem with this arrangement was that the kingdom of Sidon represented by Ethbaal were notorious Baal worshipers.
Baal in the ancient world (and in many ways in our present world too) was the main rival to God for the hearts, affection and worship of the people.
The practices of Baal worship were very similar to those practiced by the Aztecs and Incas a few hundred years ago here in the Americas. Besides the wanton sexual orgies and feasts where the spirits of the dead ancestors and demonic nephilim kings were honored, the most repugnant of their practices was wide-scale ritual child sacrifice.
So when King Ahab of Israel made peace with King Ethbaal of Sidon, they made a pact and covenant that ultimately brought the full scale practices of Baal worship straight to Israel.
Once Jezebel became married to the king of Israel, she immediately reached the status of queen. With that status came all the political sway and power she needed to begin to influence the people of Israel away from worshiping God alone, and to incorporate the practices of Baal worship into their daily spiritual practice.
When Christians speak about the Jezebel spirit, or Jezebel as a principality, they often fail to mention that this type of spirit also seeks to influence the Christian Church via politics.
So we could totally expect to see the use of political bribes, the desire to be networked in the ruling power structure and political party at the root of how this spirit gains so much influence among Christians.
We talk about how the spirit of Jezebel manipulates. But HOW? It's right there in the Bible: Jezebel manipulated through her political office and position of being the queen.
Jezebel killed off an untold number of true genuine prophets; she violently suppressed the righteous for the selfish desires of herself and her husband; and she ruthlessly merged the pagan practices of Baal worship with the worship of God until the worship of the one true living God was barely discernible from the worship of the demigod Baal.
This is something else that the spirit of Jezebel does: it successfully neuters the efficacy of the power of Jesus Christ by mixing paganism with Christianity. And it could only do this as effectively as it has and does via its close proximity to political power.
Beware of the spirit of Jezebel when you see church leaders seeking alliances with worldly political movements and political parties more than they seek unity with the body of Christ.
Beware of the spirit of Jezebel when you hear Christians making statements that God is a Democrat (or Republican). That's the true voice of the spirit of Jezebel at work.
Jesus Christ and his Body (the Church) are never to be under the influence of any one political party, unless its a party we have formed to represent our own interests in power. Outside of that a believer (in America at least) is free to use their own wisdom and understanding of God's Word and His desires in order to vote however their conscious leads. (And if you're really walking in the Holy Spirit as you should, you would know which party that is, and which one it clearly is not.)
When you see an entire political party using its influence to move the church to support something like abortion, it doesn't take the voice of an angel thundering from the heavens to know that Jezebel is at work.
Abortion in fact is an obvious clue that Jezebel is at work. Because under her time of rule alongside King Ahab, Israel practiced a type of abortion of its own, known as infanticide. Look up the word 'tophet' when you get a chance for greater clarity.
When you start seeing dogs given greater honor in society than humans; that's a sign of Jezebelianism at work right before your eyes. Under Baal worship dogs and family pets were given a highly honored place in society; above that often of even humans. Reminds me of America today, especially where I live where it seems that to own a dog and to treat it like a human is some sort of rite of passage or something. They even have doggie restaurants where I live so folks can grab a bite to eat and drink and bring their pets too...in the hopes of meeting other pet owners. But you know society has lost its way when dogs are treated with more care and respect than the human gestating in its mother's own womb.
I could go on and on, but the main point I wanted to make was that Jezebel as a spirit is a political movement that seeks power and influence over Christian ministers via its close proximity to politics.
So you'll see many Christian ministers 'selling out' just to be down with some organization that goes under the guise of promoting civil rights, but that also requires you to look the other way on the other issues they openly support: such as LGBTQ issues, abortion, open corruption, etc.
If you are a minister reading this, please don't become guilty of trading in the calling of a prophet of God to become a prophet of Baal, because Jezebel offered you a seat at her table. Her food and victuals make look stunning, and her guest list may be a who's who of political, social and economic power: but the trade off is to one day find yourself standing before the Lord of the whole Earth declaring "Lord Lord - didn't I prophesy in YOUR name?!" Right before he confines you to an eternity in the lake of fire.
That's a dire warning with very real consequences!
We live in interesting times. Prophecy seems to be happening at a break-neck speed. The pages from the Bible are literally jumping from the book and into modern headlines. The dark and the demonic seem to be gearing up for a massive confrontation with the Church and God's holy angels. And we have a front row seat to these events; not to mention we are also active participants in what's unfolding.
Stay prayed up. Do more fasting. Put away the sin that so easily causes you to fall and miss the mark. There isn't a piece of flesh in this world worth missing an eternity with Jesus Christ over. Cling closer to Jesus Christ more than ever before, and to one another.
God is about to do some massive cleaning up in the Church. And you don't want to be in the dirty clothes basket when it's laundry day.
Jezebel has got to go. And so does anyone who's content to lay in bed with her. We know Jesus as a lamb. But there's another side to His nature that He doesn't show very often: His LION side. That's the ferocious Jesus; the side of Him that if we're honest makes all of us uncomfortable. Because a lion is not as tame or predictable as a lamb is. It's not as soft and cuddly. And it's a lot more dangerous...and deadly.
"20 But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants to practice sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols. 21 I gave her time to repent, but she refuses to repent of her sexual immorality. 22 Behold, I will throw her onto a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her I will throw into great tribulation, unless they repent of her works, 23 and I will strike her children dead. And all the churches will know that I am he who searches mind and heart, and I will give to each of you according to your works." Revelations 2:20-23
