Don't Be Yoked with Jezebel
This is a re-post. However, I encourage each of you to read my article on the Elijah List posted 9-16-16 that talks about being in a "narrow place" and the need to "travail." This article will also empower you!
Dear believer, I truly believe that we must continue to gain wisdom and understanding of the deceitful and manipulative tactics of the Jezebel spirit. As many of you know, I have written extensively on this seductive stronghold in my books and various articles. For the sake of this blog post I will cut to the chase and quickly expose how we can become yoked with a Jezebel spirit.
First, let's observe the word yoked. This is a word which implies "agreement." The Jezebel spirit desires that we agree with her many witchcraft assignments (control and manipulation) and lies. Ultimately this spirit threatens our lives with premature death just as she did to Elijah. When battling a spirit of death, be on guard to NOT come into agreement with it!
Jezebel is Seductive!
Keep in mind how seductive a Jezebel spirit is...it will lie to us and suggest that we have no hope and soon we will begin to confess a death wish. Remember, when Jezebel threatened to kill Elijah that he believed her, and then ran off to the desert and prayed to die. Aren't you glad God doesn't answer all our prayers? I certainly am! But I'll tell you the truth, I've been like Elijah at times and confessed "this is too hard," "I can't do this anymore," "Lord, just take me home, I'm not doing anyone any good!" Maybe you can relate.
To agree with the enemy will yoke you with the enemy! Yes, we will be bound up and chained with his lies and many deceptions. In my recent book, The Jezebel Yoke; Breaking Free from Bondage and Deception, I provide a "test" which is a check-list to determine whether or not someone is yoked with a Jezebel spirit. Let me ask you do you relate to any of these symptoms which point to someone being yoked with this evil stronghold?
- Patterns of desolation, barrenness, lack of fulfillment and/or hopelessness
- Patterns of fear, terror and anxiety attacks?
- Addictions and/or eating disorders?
- Insecurity and inferiority?
- Extreme jealousy and competition?
- Chronic dissatisfaction
- Performance oriented
If you can relate to any of the above, it's quite possible you are yoked with a Jezebel spirit.
Dear one, I want you completely free! So, allow me to pray for you and break off this yoke from the enemy and then you are free to be yoked with the mantle of authority from the Lord. If you want more information on this spirit, you may order my book from our bookstore at lifegatechurch.org (click above). I highly recommend reading this book as it will empower you to slip out of many different yokes from a Jezebel spirit. (I go into detail on the manifestations of desolation, death, sickness and disease, sin, legalism, idolatry, and more!)
My prayer for you:
Father, in the name of Jesus I take authority over every Jezebel spirit that lies, seduces and oppresses Your children. I especially bind up all premature death assignments in the name of Jesus! I declare complete freedom! Thank You for empowering this reader to slip out of the yoke of oppression, depression, sin and slavery in the mighty name of Your Son! You , oh Lord, are our Rock. We choose to be yoked only to You and Your Word. Thank You, Lord, for being a merciful God. Now, Lord, mantle each reader with a new level of spiritual authority. I thank You for their being powerfully anointed to fulfill divine destiny and promote Your Kingdom. Amen!
