The Jezebel Spirit (Part III)
Jezebel and Ahab: a Match Made in Hell
But there was none like unto Ahab, which did sell
himself to work wickedness in the sight of the LORD, whom Jezebel his wife
As I pointed out previously the name Jezebel means 'Baal exalts' so an overview of his traits is in order. Just as Jezebel worshiped and was ruled by this goddess spirit (1 Kings 18:19 KJV) her husband king Ahab was equally under the influence of Baal. Generally speaking, while Jezebel's actions are overt, Baal's are covert. Baal will try to use diplomacy to remedy a situation whereas Jezebel will seek to outright destroy her enemies.
And Naboth said to Ahab, The LORD forbid it me, that
I should give the inheritance of my fathers unto thee. And Ahab came into
his house heavy and displeased because of the word which Naboth the
Jezreelite had spoken to him: for he had said, I will not give thee the
inheritance of my fathers. And he laid him down upon his bed, and turned
away his face, and would eat no bread.
Notice how Ahab pouts like a petulant child when he doesn't get his way? He puts on quite the show for his wife Jezebel whom he is emotionally dependent on in an unhealthy manner. Ahab seems to have 'mommy issues' which I may get more into later. Suffice to say, between the two Jezebel is definitely the dominant force in this relationship.
But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said unto him,
Why is thy spirit so sad, that thou eatest no bread? And he said unto her,
Because I spake unto Naboth the Jezreelite, and said unto him, Give me thy
vineyard for money; or else, if it please thee, I will give thee [another]
vineyard for it: and he answered, I will not give thee my vineyard. And
Jezebel his wife said unto him, Dost thou now govern the kingdom of Israel?
arise, [and] eat bread, and let thine heart be merry: I will give thee the
vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.
A perfect example of how this pair deal with others can be seen in the story of the neighbor's vineyard that Ahab lusted after in his heart. Once his diplomacy failed to yield the desired result Jezebel sprang into action and got the job done.
This tag team approach is often used by the churches to deal with those who question their apostasy. At first attempts are made to smooth things over diplomatically. They may call the person into the church offices and flatter them. Instead of dealing directly with the subject at hand they will seem to agree in a non specific way that something is wrong and try to smooth things out. Perhaps they will even offer the person a leadership role. But it is a trap; because if you accept it and keep your mouth shut it is a bribe, and in addition makes you complicit in their apostasy.
If you turn down their offer you will be given over to the wrath of Jezebel. She will stop at nothing to be rid of you; innuendo, false accusations, lies and even outright threats. Meanwhile the clueless Christian is left scratching their head in disbelief. Surely the pastor is mistaken or merely confused, perhaps a little slow to understand. But these wolves are neither mistaken, confused or stupid; they are evil.
Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou
hast, that no man take thy crown.
But most of us either cannot or will not allow ourselves to accept this reality. We trusted them with our salvation! They are the authorities, we reason to ourselves, it must be my fault. We have been programmed from birth to obey the authorities and they are perfectly aware of this. We must understand that it is this lukewarmness that allowed Jezebel to creep into the churches in the first place.
Her Many Whoredoms
But when Herod's birthday was kept, the daughter of
Herodias danced before them, and pleased Herod. Whereupon he promised with
an oath to give her whatsoever she would ask.
As we know Jezebel seduces men to commit fornication, the flip side of that is that Baal is especially susceptible to her seductive powers. We see this perfectly illustrated in the story of how Salome the daughter of Herodias danced for Herod.
Forgive me, but I need to be a little indelicate here for a moment. Let's apply some spiritual discernment, common sense and read between the lines, shall we? Does a king normally promise to give a girl anything they ask just for a dance? Salome didn't do the “Macarena” for the king's court; whatever she did was sexually charged and aroused these men. Perhaps there was even some sort of lap dance involved. The point is that Herodias exploited Herod's lust for her daughter in order to slay the prophet John the Baptist. He got played by Herodias' Jezebel spirit.
Another truth to consider here can be discerned within the interaction between Herodias and her daughter. We can plainly see why she is given the title of Mother of Harlots. Herodias taught Salome well; to be just like her, and at least symbolically, pimped her to Herod for her own selfish purposes.
You see, Herod is a prime example of someone playing the Ahab/Baal role just as his wife Herodias plays Jezebel/Asherah. Men who allow themselves to fall into a Ahab/Baal role are used to paying for um, 'getting their jollies' in one way or another. Herodias' daughter, his step daughter, performed a service and just like her mom expected payment. After all, that's what whores do, right?
The wife hath not power of her own body, but the
husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but
Wives, do you reward your husbands with sex when they please you in some way? If so you are playing the role of this harlot too! And it doesn't matter if it's done in exchange for money or mowing the lawn. It is quid pro quo, a transaction, and is a sin. A wife must not allow her affections to be purchased. To do so draws her husband into playing the Baal/Ahab role You may not like it, but scripture tells us that our bodies belong to our spouse.
Men do you buy things for your wife or do things for her expecting sex as a reward? If so you are equally guilty. Sex should never be used as currency by either spouse in a marriage.
Baal, Jezebel and the New World Order
Why are Baal and Jezebel so important? Because they work together on every level of society. When the New Age talks of the masculine and feminine 'energies' they are really talking of these two. They are the Yin and Yang, and the reason that Baphomet is androgynous.
Now therefore send, and gather to me all
Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred
and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which
eat at Jezebel's table.
Take note that the prophets of Asheroth (the groves) ate a Jezebel's table. This is because she was their sponsor. To this day Jezebel controls the Church (religious authority) and Baal the state (government authority). Baal provides Jezebel her authority and Jezebel gives Baal his legitimacy. When we understand that Baal represents world government and Jezebel represents the one world church it is plainly obvious that to oppose them is to oppose the New World Order. These two are the seat from which the Antichrist will rise to power.
From the earliest beginnings of America men like Thomas Paine realized that like mixing two volatile chemicals, the combination of church and state would result in a totalitarian government and a blueprint for world domination. So what the deist founding fathers of this country did was create the illusion of a separation of church and state. This allowed both to grow ever the more powerful individually without attracting the attention of the masses. As time wore on Americans forgot what it was like to be under the rule of the church of England and the crown.
These days you don't hear too much about separation of church and state anymore, and for good reason. That wall of separation is being gradually torn down for good. The fact of the matter is that for years the State has been gradually taking control of the church and bringing it under subjection whilst maintaining the illusion of separation. No more reading the bible in school, and no more prayers in government buildings the state has declared. That isn't separation, it's submission. But the death blow to the separation of church and state is the 501(c)(3) tax exempt status.
The churches in America are even now working in cooperation with the government. As I wrote in my article “Mystery of Iniquity (Part X)” signing up for 501(c)(3) tax exemption puts every US church in partnership with the Government. Part of this agreement is that the church will not participate in any illegal activities. Sound reasonable?
With gay marriage as the law of the land refusing to marry a homosexual couple will soon result in church seizures. Once this happens the only churches left will be government sanctioned. And you won't be able to simply refuse to sign the 501(c)(3) exemption form; the last church to do so was seized by the IRS for income tax evasion.
Make no mistake, if your church hasn't yet succumbed to the Jezebel spirit its days are numbered. It will either be seized for violating the terms of the 501(c)(3) agreement or assimilated into the Jezebel system.
Persecution of the Saints
Which of the prophets have not your fathers
persecuted? and they have slain them which shewed before of the coming of
the Just One; of whom ye have been now the betrayers and murderers:
Church and state working together is what killed Jesus. The religious authorities convicted Him and the state carried out the sentence. Herodias deemed she wanted the head of John the Baptist and Herod gave it to her. This my friends is what we can expect for ourselves if we take a bold stand for the gospel so prepare your hearts now.
And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the
saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I
wondered with great admiration.
They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the
time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God
service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known
the Father, nor me.
Just as the religious authorities had Christ crucified, it will be the Great Whore Jezebel (the World Church) will turn the true Christians over to the state for execution during the time of tribulation.
