Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.
1 Timothy 4:1-3
The Ways in Which the Jezebel Spirit Will Operate
By: Michael Bradley
Last updated on: December 29, 2018
In part 1, What is a Jezebel spirit.
Here are 11 specific things I have isolated on this spirit once it moves in on someone to set up shop. Again, this type of spirit likes to play the same kind of games every time it moves in and attaches to someone.
- The Evil Personality Traits of the Jezebel Spirit
- The Spider Web Analogy
- There Will Be a Charismatic Type Energy on the Host
- Likes To Attach to Sharp, Intelligent, and Attractive People When It Can
- Will Always Seek to be the Center of Attention
- Will Seek to Infiltrate, Attack, and Undermine Everything
- Will Go After Anyone in a Leadership Position
- Runs in Tandem With a Mocking Spirit
- Especially Hates Prophets, Prayer, and Spiritual Warfare
- Will Occasionally Expose Itself on a Photo
- The Host Usually Will Not Know They Have This Kind of Spirit in Them
Now I will briefly discuss each one of these so you can see how this type of spirit will attempt to move against you and bring you and everything you are connected to completely down.
1. The Evil Personality Traits of the Jezebel Spirit
I want to start this off with the actual traits of this evil spirit, so you can have all of this information right at the top of this section. Below is a list of the personality traits of this kind of evil spirit.
The Jezebel spirit will try to infect and contaminate the person it is in so they too will operate with these same kinds of evil traits. It has always amazed me over the years that this kind of spirit can get very smart and intelligent people to do its evil bidding so easily.
Some of these people will say and do some of the most horrible things, but yet find some way to rationalize it and think they are perfectly justified in doing what they are doing. This spirit will play some of these people like fiddles, like a puppet on a string, with the puppet master being the Jezebel spirit itself.
Here are some of the evil personality traits to look for with a person who has been operating under this spirit’s evil influence for quite some time.
- Pure Evil and Hate
- Maximum Pride
- Highly Lustful and Seductive
- Highly Self-Centered and Narcissistic
- Will Always Seek To Be the Center of Attention
- Very Judgmental, Critical, Condescending, and Demeaning
- Overly Demanding and Manipulating
- Cold, Ruthless, Cunning, and Calculating
- Very Combative and Confrontational
- Very Good at Lying and Cheating
- Cannot Stand Any Type of Constructive Criticism
- Hates All Prophets, Prayer, and Anything to Do With Spiritual Warfare
- Will Be Capable of Giving False Prophecies, Visions, and Dreams
This spirit operates with maximum pride in it. As a result, it will try to infect the host with that same kind of pride. And once it does, the host will no longer be able to accept any type of constructive criticism from anyone. The host will seek its own throne and they will now have to be the total center of attention. Everything will now be about them and them alone.
They also will no longer be able to bond with anyone because they are now totally self-sufficient in their own blown-up egos. The only true friends they will have are the people who will get duped into falling into their web of deceit and lies, where they will now become their mindless followers.
These people will have all of their true friends leave them because no one wants to be around this kind of evil spirit and around these kinds of negative, evil, and destructive personality traits.
And then sooner or later it happens, this person completely fails and falls, as well as losing anything that is close to them.
And this was all due to them allowing this kind of evil spirit to get on the inside of them in the first place, and from there, blindly follow this evil spirit’s leadings to do what it wanted them to do.
I have seen this spirit literally play some people right over the edge of a cliff where they ended up losing everything. And this was all because they were too blind and ignorant to see what was really going on behind the scenes in the spiritual realm.This kind of spirit is a master at setting up train wrecks and then orchestrating for them to actually occur with individual people, ministries, churches, and companies.
This is why every single Christian church should be teaching their people the basics of true spiritual warfare in the Lord so they will have the knowledge on how to combat these kinds of evil spirits.
Again, the Lord has already given us fair warning when He tells us in His Word that without His knowledge, that His people will go into captivity and perish.
2. The Spider Web Analogy
When someone is walking with this kind of evil spirit deeply entrenched in them, they will initially move and operate on what I call the spider web analogy.
Just like a spider creates a web so it can trap its prey so it can then devour them, the Jezebel spirit will start out in the exact same way once it moves into a certain environment to try and work.
These people are very good at playing the good cop-bad cop game. They will always start out playing the good cop.
These people will initially seem to have their act all together. They will know how to talk the talk. They will know Scripture well enough so they can impress every one with their high level of spiritual development.
They will know how to smooth talk people and use false flattery to gain favor so they can then start to work to get their claws worked into them.
And before you know it, you will be caught in their web. And then once they have you comfortably caught in their web through false flattery and deceit, they will then start to attack you and try to tear you to pieces.
3. There Will Be a Charismatic Type Energy on the Host
Another thing that helps these people lure unsuspecting people into their webs is the amount of charismatic energy they are carrying on them.
When you initially meet these kind of people, you will feel a certain type of energy coming off them and you will initially feel very drawn to them. You will feel like a moth being drawn towards an open flame. This charismatic type energy on them will have a major drawing power to it.
You initially may think it is the presence of the Holy Spirit on them because they will be so good at sounding like they are very spiritual and that they are walking very close to God.
I remember when I first started to see this type of drawing power on these people, I found myself being amazed that an evil spirit could emit this kind of energy off a person. You would think if an evil spirit was attached to someone, that you would be initially totally repulsed and repelled by it.
You would not think demons could have this kind of seductive, drawing power within their evil natures and then be able to project it through their host. But some of these evil spirits do, and the Jezebel spirit has this kind of seductive, drawing power within itself, and from there, it will project this drawing power through the person it is living in.
This is why this spirit has been so successful over the years in bringing down individuals, churches, marriages, and good friendships – all because it has the ability to draw people into their well spun webs, and then before the person knows it or realizes what they have been caught up in, it then moves in for the attack to either kill that person, or try and completely take the person out of commission on whatever their calling is in the Lord.
And this will now take us right into the next caption.
4. Likes To Attach to Sharp, Intelligent, and Attractive People When It Can
As a result of having a very seductive and high energy in its evil nature, the Jezebel spirit likes to attach to sharp, intelligent, and attractive people when it can. Not that it won’t attempt to attach to a less attractive person, but it will make much more headway with want it wants to accomplish if it can find a physically attractive person as will be explained below.
On the 5 cases I have seen, 4 of them were women, and the other was a man. And in each case, each of these people were sharp, intelligent, and very attractive.
I believe the reason this spirit likes to target these kinds of people is because it wants total control of everything. It wants to be just like Queen Jezebel.
It wants the throne for herself and it does not want to share it with anyone else.
As a result, they look for personalities that can help them climb to the top of the heap in whatever environment they are trying to work in.
In a marriage, if the woman is the one with this spirit, she will try and usurp her husband’s authority as the head of the household and will try to totally replace him as the spiritual head of the household.
If this spirit is working in the middle of a prayer group, it will try and work its way to the top so it can be the new leader of the prayer group.
If this spirit is working within the church itself, it will try and work its way to the top to be the right hand man of the pastor, and from there, start to directly attack him so she can completely take him out and knock him right out of his call for the Lord.
You saw what Delilah did with Samson. I believe there was a good possibility that Delilah may have had this kind of spirit operating on her.
And through her very seductive charms and allure, she completely brought down the man with probably the greatest physical strength anointing anyone has ever had with the Lord. And she did it with pure evil seduction.
This is why this kind of spirit is so deadly, because it knows how to use seduction, especially a sexual kind of seduction, to gets its way and then to eventually bring down the person or ministry they have targeted.
As we all know, many men are easily lured into illicit affairs by pretty women. Many have used the expression that some women know how to get a man wrapped around their little fingers. I am sure most you have seen this phenomena occur over and over again. Sex is a very powerful weapon, and this kind of demon will always try and use whenever it can.
This is why it likes to attach to attractive people whenever it can, because it knows it can use that person’s physical attractiveness to draw people into its web.
You think we would all learn our lessons from the past with so many people being brought down by this kind of seductive game, as this same game has been played over and over throughout the centuries by these types of demons. But many people never learn from the past, and just as many people now fall for this same kind of game as they did years ago.When you combine the power that this spirit has to emit a seductive, charismatic type energy off a person, and then they attach to a person who is naturally attractive, sharp and intelligent, you then have a very deadly combination that this spirit can work with to achieve its ultimate goal.
And that goal is to get total control so it can then work to take down and completely destroy either a person, marriage, church, ministry, friendship, company, or a government.
5. Will Always Seek to be the Center of Attention
Once this spirit has gotten a foothold into the environment it now wants to work in, the next thing it will do after it has lured you into its web by playing the good cop, is to then start to always be the center of attention. And this is where you can really start to pick up and spot this spirit in actual operation.
We all have a natural need and desire for a certain amount of love and attention.
We all need proper encouragement and attention, not only from our parents as we are being raised up, but also from all of our friends and loved ones as we become adults, as we all help each other in keeping up our levels of self-confidence and self-esteem.
However, when a person has this type of spirit operating through them, their need for attention and glory will be way off what would be considered normal. And this is when this spirit starts to get itself exposed to those around it. But it does not really care at this point.
It will do everything it can to get the host to always seek to be the center of attention, with the ultimate goal in mind being to get to the top of the heap in whatever environment it is working in.
Since these types of people usually have that charismatic energy flowing and operating through them from this kind of evil spirit, they initially will be very good at working themselves up the ladder in the environment they are working in.
With this kind of demonic energy operating through them, combined with their natural good looks and high degree of intelligence, these people will sometimes be able to easily talk and play their way right up the ladder.
And then once they have worked themselves up to where they need to be, this spirit will then start to viciously attack and operate with both barrels blazing.
And this will now take us right into the next caption, which will take us right into the real heart of how this spirit will attack and completely undermine everything in its path.
6. Will Seek to Infiltrate, Attack, and Undermine Everything
This evil spirit simply has a two fold mission:
- Seek to infiltrate and once in
- Seek to attack, undermine, and destroy everything in its path, taking absolutely no prisoners. It’s goal is total death and destruction. Plain and simple.
If you are dating a person with this kind of evil spirit on them, they will try and get you to marry them. And until you do, it will be playing good cop with you the whole time so it can continue to lure and draw you into its web. But once you end up marrying this person, that is when the bad cop will emerge, and that is when all hell will literally break out in your life.
If you are a woman dating a man who is a physical abuser, many times he will not show his true colors until after you marry him.
But once you marry him, that is when the actual abuse will start – after he has gotten you totally caught in his web, with the web being the actual marriage itself.
If you are a man dating a woman who has this kind of spirit on her, she will say and do all of the right things as you are dating her. But once you marry her, that is when the tables will be turned and she will start coming directly after you, trying to tear both you and the marriage completely apart.This spirit first seeks to infiltrate the environment it wants to try and work in. And once it is in, it will then set up shop and start attacking and undermining literally every single thing it can.
This spirit is an attack dog and it will literally attack anything and everything it can, depending on how far the host will cooperate with its evil promptings.
Here is a breakdown of some of the kinds of attacks you can expect once this spirit has gained a good foothold into a certain environment.
A) Will Start Playing Major Mind Games
The one thing I have noticed about this spirit is that it is very good at playing mind games and head games with people.
It will know where your weak spots and jugular veins will be at, and the attacks will always be targeted at your weak spots so it can start to weaken and demoralize you and bring you down.
It will come after your levels of self-confidence and self-esteem. It will come after your calling for the Lord.
It will come after your specific personality traits, both good and bad, to see if they can convince you that you are a nobody and that you will never amount to anything good and worthwhile in this life.
It will try and make you think you are the crazy one and that they are the ones who have all of the knowledge and wisdom.
They will try and make you feel inferior so they can gain the upper hand in the relationship and that you then need to be totally guided by them and dependent upon them.
Before you know it, this kind of spirit can throw you into a depression, along with causing major confusion and indecisiveness. You will feel disoriented and feel like you are caught up in a fog.In other words, this evil spirit will try to suck the life out of you and tear you down every which way it can so you can no longer function in your calling for the Lord.
The prophet Elijah himself was so distraught and depressed after coming into direct contact with Queen Jezebel and the spirit operating on her, that he almost wanted to throw in the towel and quit until God strengthened him through an angel and then gave him a direct word.
This spirit is very good at being very critical and judgmental and before you know it, it will have you believing in all of the lies it has been throwing your way.
This is where you really have to know who you are in Christ, and that you never allow a person with this kind of spirit on them to be able to bring you down like they almost did with Elijah.
Let this part of Elijah’s story be a major lesson to all of us on how far this spirit will try and go – to literally try and get you to quit and walk out on God’s calling for your life. I believe a lot of the suicides we see may be as a result of this spirit’s evil influence over a person and the mind games it knows how to play with them.
If they can do this with a great man of God like Elijah, they then will be able to do it with some of us.
I have personally seen several men over the years be turned into a heap of mush by women who were operating with this kind of spirit on them. And the way it was done was by the mind games they were playing with the men over a certain period of time.
They just kept beating them down with verbal assaults, tearing at their self-confidence, their self-worth in God, and what they were doing in their callings.
By the time they got done with some of these men, many of them lost their callings in the Lord due to the fear and paranoia that was now oppressing them as a result of allowing this kind of spirit to get too strong of a foothold into their lives and callings for the Lord.
B) Will Cause Major Dissension, Strife, and Chaos
Another thing this spirit is very good at doing is causing a lot of in-fighting, back-biting, and malicious type gossiping among the people that are caught in its web. This kind of spirit knows exactly how to cause major dissension and strife even among the best of friends.
If this spirit infiltrates into a marriage, it will have everyone at each other’s throats. The children will be fighting abnormally among one another.
Each spouse will be fighting with the other, as well as with the children. This spirit is a major peace disturber and it will cause all kinds of havoc and trouble in the family unless it is quickly dealt with and exposed.
If this spirit gets into the middle of a ministry or church, it will again try to get people to start fighting with one another so it can ruin the harmony and unity of a group or church.
Same thing goes if this spirit gets into the middle of an actual company or corporation. It will try and cause as much strife and dissension as it possibly can so it can try and bring down the entire division or company it has targeted.
I wonder how many companies have gone out of business over the years as a result of the destructive influence of this kind of spirit operating on the inside of their company?
You walk into these environments where this kind of spirit is running rampant and unchecked, and you can literally feel the negative and oppressive energy in the air itself.
7. Will Go After Anyone in a Leadership Position
Another major strategy of this spirit is that it will always go after those who are in any type of leadership position.
This would include pastors of churches, youth ministers, worship leaders, leaders of prayer groups and Bible studies, husbands as the head of households, supervisors, and upper level management of different companies and corporations.
If a man marries a woman who has this spirit on her, she will attack the man’s authority as the head of the household and try to get that position for herself.
If this person is working for a church, it will try and work its way as far up the ladder as it can so it can get very close to the pastor himself, and from there, start to work to bring him down just like Delilah did with Samson.
Pastors especially have to always be on the alert for this kind of spirit, as this spirit is always looking for a way to get a direct shotat them so they can bring them completely down and destroy their entire church.
I do not have to tell you how many pastors have lost their ministries over the years because they got seduced into having an affair with a woman who had this kind of spirit on her.
Lust and adultery have brought down too many good men of God over the years, and it was all because they fell under the seductive spell of this evil spirit.
If this spirit infiltrates a prayer group or a Bible study class, it will try and work its way to the top so it can be the leader of the group.
Once it is the new leader, it will then start its attacks so as to completely destroy the group with false teaching, false prophecy, spreading false rumors about other people in the group, causing dissension among the people in the group, along with trying to poison the people of the group against whoever the leaders of the church are.
The reason this spirit wants to take out those in any type of leadership position is because it wants that leadership position for itself. And if it cannot get that leadership position for itself, it will then try and completely destroy it so there is nothing left of it.
This is how some marriages end up in divorce, and this is how some churches end up closing their doors and going out of business – all due to allowing this kind of spirit to run rampant and unchecked in their environment for too long of a period of time.
8. Will Be Capable of Giving False Prophecies, Visions, and Dreams
With this kind of spirit really hating all of God’s prophets, it can only be expected that this spirit will falsely prophesy whenever it can. This kind of spirit is thus able to give its host false prophecies, false words, false dreams, and false visions – all in an attempt to make its host look more spiritual than they really are, and to also lure as many other people into its web that it can so it can build up its own base and following.
Since this spirit is operating at a higher level of intelligence than most of the other demons are, you really have to closely examine any words or prophecies that the host will be getting.
If the host is falsely prophesying under this spirit’s guidance, the Holy Spirit will show you where the errors are at so you can separate a true prophecy from the Lord from one that is coming from this kind of evil spirit.
This is why all prophecy has to be judged and properly discerned, so you can determine where it is really coming from, as the Bible warns us about false prophets being among us like wolves in sheep’s clothing.
9. Runs in Tandem With a Mocking Spirit
Another very interesting thing that I have seen occur on several of the cases I was allowed to watch and observe, is that this spirit runs in tandem with what is called a mocking spirit.
As we have explained before, when a head chief demon such as a Jezebel spirit moves in on the inside of a person’s body, they will usually travel in groups and they will thus have numerous other demons under their control and authority.
One of the underlings to the Jezebel spirit will be what is called a mocking spirit, otherwise known as a blocking type spirit. It’s job will be to cover for the Jezebel spirit and try and distract people from figuring out that this person really has a Jezebel spirit on the inside of them.
Many deliverance ministers have first come across this mocking spirit when trying to deliver someone from the Jezebel spirit. This spirit can actually be quite funny and comical at times, and has literally made some deliverance ministers laugh right in the middle of an actual deliverance.
This spirit will try and distract you and get you off center so you do not stay too focused on trying to get to the Jezebel spirit.
This mocking spirit will make fun of, make light of, and make jokes about anything and everything, and it is quite funny and comical when it does.
When it moves in operation ahead of the Jezebel, it will try and take the sting out of some of the evil things that will come out of a person’s mouth and actions, as so many people get very quickly appalled when some of these evil traits start manifesting through a person’s personality.
However, do not let this mocking spirit fool you with its dark humor and jokes. Operating behind it is probably the most evil of all of Satan’s demons.
10. Especially Hates Prophets, Prayer, and Spiritual Warfare
Another very obvious thing with this kind of spirit is its absolute hatred and disdain for anything to do with spiritual warfare, prayer, and anything to do with God’s true prophets.
This spirit hates all of God’s prophets just like Queen Jezebel did back in the OT. And it also hates anyone who is actively involved with spiritual warfare in the Lord.
The reason it hates these two types of people is because prophets and those well trained in the area of spiritual warfare are its greatest threat. Prophets and those who are trained in the area of spiritual warfare can easily spot and pick up when they come across this kind of spirit, and they will then know how to get rid of it if the person is open to receiving an actual deliverance.
If you want to test a person to see if they have a Jezebel spirit on them, just bring up the subject of prophets and spiritual warfare and watch how this spirit will well up with anger and disgust, and from there, will try and change the conversation to something else. You will hit a nerve every time you do this with this kind of spirit.
This spirit also hates any form of prayer to the Lord, as it knows our prayer life with the Lord is what keeps us in the center of His perfect will for our lives.
This is why it loves to infiltrate and attack prayer groups of any kind, so it can attempt to prevent people from staying close to the Lord in their own personal relationships with Him.
11. Will Occasionally Expose Itself on a Photo
Another amazing thing I have seen occur with this kind of spirit is when it seemingly wants to let its guard down when the host is having their picture taken. Every once in while what will happen is that this spirit will literally manifest right through the person’s face and eyes, and it then gets captured by the camera. You will thus see a real, live, Jezebel spirit captured on the actual photo itself.
I do not know if this spirit is doing this just to flaunt itself, or if it wants to see what it looks like through a person’s face, but it is quite amazing how often this actually happens. I remember the first time I had one captured on a photo, you were able to see partly into its personality through the person’s eyes.
What I saw was not only pure evil and pure hate, but I saw an old, ancient spirit with a high degree of intelligence and cunning in it. You could also see that it had a very seductive quality in its personality, and that it would use that seductive quality to lure people into its web so it could eventually eat them up alive and devour them.
You could also see that this thing has absolutely no mercy in its personality and it would kill you in a second if it could do so. This thing is as creepy as it gets.
12. The Host Usually Will Not Know They Have This Kind of Spirit in Them
The saddest thing about these types of cases is that most of the time, the host will not know they even have this kind of spirit operating on the inside of them. These people never feel it moving on the inside of them, nor do they ever hear it trying to talk to them.
This spirit is very good at hiding behind the scenes, but yet at the same time getting the host to do exactly what it wants them to do.
The reason these people are usually clueless that this spirit is operating on the inside of them is because this spirit is so smooth and so cunning in the way in which it operates. This is why this spirit will try and fill the person up with as much pride as they can, so these people will be totally incapable of admitting that they could even have this kind of spirit in them in the first place.
This is how well deceived these people are, and how well this spirit has played and manipulated them during the entire time it has been on the inside of them.
As a result, many of these types of people will never receive a true deliverance from the Lord. And this is all because they have too much pride operating in their personalities, which will prevent them from admitting that they could ever have this kind of spirit operating in them in the first place.
