I met the Jezebel spirit some years ago and quickly became intimately acquainted with her wicked ways. Shortly after our brief introduction I found myself being resisted on all fronts, yet I didn’t completely understand what that resistance was. You see, Jezebel was yet an unnamed foe. the Jezebel spirit was at that time a mysterious rival that seemed to know me quite well. It was as if she had studied my strengths and weaknesses as she prepared to wage an all-out war against me.
While I had a revelation of spiritual warfare and binding and loosing, this spiritual war was somehow different and the victory was not swift. The root of the resistance was deeply planted in the spiritual realm. Whoever this unseen rival was, it was not giving up easily. It wasn’t even backing down.
I still remember pacing around my backyard in prayer and intercession for hours at a time during those days. What felt like an intense grieving would come upon me regularly and all I could do was cry out to God to unlock the mystery. The grieving intensified and I realized I was in a spiritual war far greater than anything I had experienced in the past. It was a spiritual clash against an unidentified enemy. I can’t do justice to the feelings with mere words. Suffice it to say that I knew I was under a vicious spiritual attack. And vicious is still too mild a word. I knew I was in a spiritual war against an especially wicked foe.
This went on for months until one day I heard a minister explaining an experience that was markedly similar to mine. He described the emotions of his soul and even the physical symptoms associated with contending with a spirit called “Jezebel” and he explained that he had to learn how to fight the Jezebel spirit so he could launch his ministry.
When I heard him say that, something went off inside of me (an inner witness) and I thought, “That’s the same thing that I feel, in my spirit, when I walk around my backyard praying.” Once I knew what I was fighting against, I began to study the Word of God for revelation on the wicked wiles of this Jezebel spirit.
