I had a profound dream about Jezebel in November, during the election drama. Of course, it would not have been well-received then and probably won’t be well-received now but those who have ears to hear will find revelation or confirmation in the encounter.
In the dream, Jezebel organized a plot to destroy my prophetic voice. I didn’t recognize it at first. This spirit was operating through a person and was so extremely subtle that the spirit was at first unrecognizable.
This person, who was a symbol of Jezebel, was trying to woo me into a marriage covenant. Jezebel gave me all sorts of what sounded to the natural mind “strategic reasons” to engage in this covenant.
At first, I rejected all the proposals, discerning some perversion under the surface. I couldn’t put my finger on it. Jezebel in disguise persisted with all the reasoning and wisdom, even presenting contracts and rings. After giving ear to Jezebel for some time, I started to fall under this principality’s spell. I was bewitched.
A Nagging Spirit
How did it happen? While at first I was unwilling to consider a contract, Jezebel kept nagging me the way Delilah nagged Samson and I found myself willing to give an ear to the proposals. I found myself beginning to agree with what Jezebel was saying. Jezebel was pleased that I was starting to see things its way.
Jezebel in disguise then wanted to sleep in my bed. That’s when I snapped out of the bewitchment and offered a firm, “No!” (The devil always overplays his hand.) But Jezebel did not take no for answer. I said, “Jezebel, my bed is not big enough for the both of us!” In other words, I would not get in bed with Jezebel.
Jezebel continued reasoning and suggested buying a bigger bed. I persisted in saying, “No!” I rejected Jezebel. I saw the assignment for what it was and aggressively stood against it. Again, I refused to get into bed with Jezebel.
Jezebel Bewitching the Prophetic Movement
What is going on? This dream was about me alone. In this dream, I represented the prophetic movement. Remember, Jezebel is a spirit of seduction and operates in false prophecy (see Revelation 2:20). (Check out Will the Real Jezebel Please Stand Up?)
I believe Jezebel in disguise has bewitched too many in the prophetic movement. (One would be too many, right, but it’s more than one.) The fact that I gave ear to Jezebel at all in this dream shows you just how subtle and persistent the spirit can be.
The Bible speaks clearly of Jezebel and her witchcrafts (see 2 Kings 9:22). Some prophets are agreeing with Jezebel and persecuting prophets who do not agree with their error. Other prophets are eating at Jezebel’s table and she is sleeping in Jezebel’s bed. Still other prophets are staying pure, like Elijah and the 7,000 others who will now bow a knee to idolatry.
Idolatry has certainly seeped into the prophetic movement, with some prophets idolizing politicians and some believers idolizing both prophets and politicians. This is not new, but it’s a clear temptation of Jezebel. Jesus said, “But I have this complaint against you. You are permitting that woman—that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet—to lead my servants astray. She teaches them to commit sexual sin and to eat food offered to idols” (Revelation 2:20).
I wrote about these types of issues extensively in my book, Discerning Prophetic Witchcraft. In the book, I wrote about a 20-year old prophetic word the Lord gave me about a prophetic showdown. I believe that showdown, or at least the first phase of it, is upon us. With so much division in the prophetic movement, it’s easier for spirits like Jezebel to come in unaware.
Prophetic Movement Needs a Heart Check
It’s time for prophets to check their hearts for compromise with Jezebel. Jezebel is working to discredit the prophetic movement and has used idolatry to do it. Some prophets have set themselves up as infallible gods. Some prophets have set up politicians as saviors. Some believers have done the same, defending prophetic voices to the death who are clearly not hearing the Lord. This is a dangerous moment in the church.
Jezebel has seduced many with idolatry and the prophetic and prayer movements are divided. It’s time for prophets to guard their hearts from Jezebelic influences. When a prophet suggests that anyone who does not believe their prophecy is bowing to Jezebel, it’s more likely they are the ones bowing to this controlling, seductive spirit.
Some prophets have made covenants with Jezebel. Some prophets have made covenants with Mammon. Some prophets have made covenant with spirits other than the Holy Spirit. This can happen to anyone who gives ear to seductive voices too long. And, remember, Jezebel’s voice is subtle. Don’t give your ear to Jezebel long enough to fall under its spell. Rather, only listen long enough to discern the spirit’s operations and then flee immorality.
If you have been agreeing with Jezebel, eating at Jezebel’s table, or in bed with Jezebel, now is the time to repent and take your true voice back. God can restore your voice. God wants to restore your voice. Even Elijah gave in to the voice of Jezebel and ran and hid in a cave. If you’ve been listening to the wrong voice, you can change frequencies. God can deliver you from compromise and restore your office.
