In the Body of Christ we are in the midst of a major transition and realignment. The face of Church is changing. We are moving from mega churches to the apostolic reformation. The Lord is raising up His apostles and prophets and five-fold ministers to raise up apostolic church houses and hubs. These apostolic houses represent a governing body of believers with an prophetic voice to speak into their region and govern it.
Anytime the prophetic voice begins to rise, the Jezebel spirit will be found close by. Jezebel's mission is to shut down the prophetic voice at all cost. As revival hubs and apostolic houses are rising, we must be careful not to entertain Jezebel in our midst. Revelation 2:20 says, " 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." Jezebel represents a false prophetic voice."
The Jezebel spirit is hard to recognize at first, because they are able to prophesy just like anyone else. But the source and the spirit from which they prophesy is not the spirit of God. Jezebel will flatter you and stroke your ego, all the while you're spiritual senses fall under the Jezebel's spell unable to recognize Jezebel's true motive. Many leaders in the Body of Christ are in a vulnerable time, and need to guard against Jezebelic assignments. Intercessors need to be praying and covering their leaders more than ever.
I see the Jezebel spirit seducing leaders away from strategic alignments, causing them to open the door to sin in their lives, and sabotaging their ministry. Many times we think Jezebel's agenda is about control.but as Jennifer LeClaire has stated, "The Jezebel spirit is about seduction." To seduce means to persuade to disobedience or disloyalty, to lead astray by false promises, to entice (merririam-webster.com). No one is bulletproof to Jezebel's seductions. Even one the Bible's greatest prophet's, Elijah, succumb to Jezebel's intimidation (1 Kings 19).
More than ever our leaders need our prayers. Jezebel is on the prowl, seeking to pervert and take out the prophetic voices and ministries. Intercessors need to cover their leaders, and the prophetic voices around them can't be afraid to call out Jezebel when it's there. Leaders it's important to submit yourself to leadership, and learn to embrace correction. Correction can save your life or ministry. Many are resisting correction in this hour, allowing rebellion to open the door for Jezebel to come in. In the next couple years we're going to see leaders fall that we least expect. Let the prophetic voices arise and expose the plans of the enemy, We must stop tolerating Jezebel in the Body of Christ.
