Jezebel Character Part III
Galatians 5:19-21 (New Living Translation)
19 “When you follow the desires of your sinful nature, the results are very clear: sexual immorality, impurity, lustful pleasures, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, outbursts of anger, selfish ambition, dissension, division, 21 envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and other sins like these. Let me tell you again, as I have before, that anyone living that sort of life will not inherit the Kingdom of God.”
Witchcraft (sorcery) is a form manipulation, intimidation and domination over another person, situation or circumstances.
Control is a by- product of witchcraft because it is in total contrast to the nature of God.
Jezebel carries this witchcraft spirit very strongly. They will stop at nothing until they get what they want. They are determined, stubborn, mean-spirited, selfish, jealous, prideful and relentless.
They desire to make you feel abandoned, hopeless and fearful. The purpose for this is to make you totally dependent upon them. They want to control you!
To a Jezebel there is no price too great, no higher authority, no one too precious to get in their way to accomplish their desires, regardless of the consequences.
They strongly believe the end will justify the means. They will do whatever it takes to get what they want.
The Jezebel personality has no conscience, their hearts are hardened and their spirit is in direct conflict to God’s will.
The Jezebel is strong willed and determined to get what they want and they will wait for the opportunity.
Jezebel wants to control, dominate and intimidate.
God is totally opposite! He has given us a free will and He refuses to violate that gift. He is always wooing us into His presence but He allows us to make the decision to choose Him or not.
He never forces Himself upon us and He never stops loving us in spite of our choices.
So when Jezebel tries to control and dominate you, he/she is in direct violation of God’s law. They have crossed the line over into Satan’s kingdom and now live under his authority, power and destruction.
Jezebel will destroy the fruit of the Spirit in themselves and likely in others they associate with.
Jezebel has no fruit in their lives. They are in the same place they were last week, last month, six months ago and even a year ago or more. Nothing has changed!
They are still complaining about the same people, situation and same problems. They are usually in the same place they were the last time you spoke to them. It always seems things are getting worse rather than better.
It is always someone else’s fault for their circumstances, problems, rejection and/or disappointments. It is never their fault and they are never wrong. They see life through negativity and would rather die than accept the blame for their problems or why life has not been fair to them.
Beware; some Jezebels will pretend to be remorseful or maybe temporarily sorry. But NOT changed because they love the taste of power!!!!!
Few truly change because they have a hard time of letting go of control, anger, unforgiveness, bitterness and they lack the discipline of taking their thoughts captive. They dwell upon their offenses, hurts, anger, selfishness and deviousness.
18 “Listen then to what the parable of the sower means: 19 When anyone hears the message about the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in their heart. This is the seed sown along the path.
20 The seed falling on rocky ground refers to someone who hears the word and at once receives it with joy. 21 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. 22 The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful.
23 But the seed falling on good soil refers to someone who hears the word and understands it. This is the one who produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” Matt. 13:18-23 NIV
