The media constantly asks me, “What demon do you deal with the most?” The answer is easy – Jezebel! That name conjures ideas of an adulterous female character. To call a woman a “Jezebel” is to evoke images of seduction, cleavage, come-hither glances, and sexual fascination. But that’s missing the point. Jezebel isn’t a one-dimensional character lifted from a grade-B erotic flick. Jezebel is mentioned 22 times in the Bible as a literal, historical figure. But this name also represents one of the most hideous demons in Satan’s kingdom, an archetype of evil and the #1 spiritual enemy of this age.
As Chapter Two of my book JEZEBEL points out, this demon has appeared in many forms and with various names throughout the ages. Some such identities include Ishtar, Ashtoreth, Diana, Aphrodite, Isis, and Kali, to name a few. Whether Egyptian, Greek, Roman, or Middle Eastern, cult worship is the focus, and the ultimate purpose is the same: Disparage the patriarchy of God the Father and displace the Holy Trinity with devotion to a matriarchal-based system of occult worship. And Jezebel is to be found in the church.
As I state on page 124 of my book, “One of Jezebel’s main purposes is the destruction of true worship. You’ll find Jezebel haunting the precincts of religion, even fervent worship of God. Jezebel especially likes to be found behind priestly robes and thunderous pulpits. What better place to subvert God’s word and purposes.” Thus, a strategy is needed to recognize when the Jezebel spirit is at work so it can be countered effectively. It’s critical to understand how this evil spirit operates to avoid the traps that Jezebel sets to destroy relationships, churches, families, and marriages.

An encouraging word: JESUS SAVES
As I was recently walking down the streets of a busy city, I saw a man carrying a hand-written sign saying, “Jesus Saves.” You’ve probably also seen such. The man didn’t stop and said nothing. He simply bore witness to a basic spiritual truth. It shouldn’t get more complicated than that. The apostle Paul declared in 1 Timothy 1:9, “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.” In America’s culturally sophisticated Christianity we emphasis, and sometimes over-emphasize, the most minute aspects of Christian living. But we must never forget that none if it matters without the foundation that will get us to heaven: Jesus saves. Are you saved?
