Traits of A Jezebel

by Wenessa Nunes

The name Jezebel is spelt in Hebrew as “LYZEBEL” and it means “Baal exalts, un-husbanded one, without cohabitation and unchaste”. This spirit hates authority, despises correction, hates being subjected to authority and loves attention.

“Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. 12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.” 1 Timothy 2:11-14

“Jezebel is a widely rampant spirit of rebellion that is hard to get rid of, rooted in pride, self-will, and self-sufficiency. Only the LORD can deliver but only if the individual truly repents and submits to Him, to His Word.” Anita Villarreal

Its Traits and Character

This spirit especially hates men of God who are faithfully doing the work of God. She will come in that church to pollute it and quench the flow of the Holy Spirit. If she goes in a weak church, there will begin to be little revelation of God’s word during sermons and there will barely be any testimonies. That church would need to be strong in prayer. If you are in ministry or you are anointed and not yet married it is very important that you walk in the gift of discernment because the devil will try and pair you up with a Jezebel partner to infiltrate your anointing, calling and influence. It will usually be someone who is knowingly or unknowingly involved in forms of witchcraft, in order to make sure that you quench the Holy Spirit. Remember, witchcraft is not always about spells, but it can find ground to operate through jealousy, pride, envy or hatred.

When a leader who has a Jezebel spirit is in ministry, due to lack of revelation of the truth of God’s word, he/she will twist scripture, manipulate the congregation, direct worship to themselves instead of God and lastly, in some cases he/she will practice subtle witchcraft, false religion or divination even by use of biblical principles and Scriptures.

Jezebel hates men and women in authority who are over her position. She will do just about ‘anything’ to get someone’s place of prominence especially those who speak the truth or have a genuine/pure heart. Jezebel hates the Truth and those who speak it and seeks to destroy those who openly speak the Truth, especially if the Truth exposes her ugly ways and motives.

A Jezebel spirit in a woman will not submit to a man, if she does it will only be in pretence in order to gain ground or favours; her submission is conditional. Some wives allow this spirit to entice them and they end up submitting to their husband only when it is beneficial to them; this is rebellion in the marriage bed. When heaven looks at the marriage bed of such a couple it sees it as impure. Wives ought to know that their submission adds to the purity of their marriage bed (in the same way godly headship from the husband adds to the purity of the marriage bed with his wife). Submission is powerful and invites God’s blessings but the enemy lies to some wives enticing them to operate in a Jezebelic manner.

A person with a Jezebel spirit may look innocent and be widely known as being very helpful and friendly, but he/she is deceitfully cunning and subtle; likely trying to gain ground and favour. Jezebel only looks out for his/her own selfish ambitions. Jezebel is only helping today in order to gain the upper hand tomorrow.

A Jezebel places themselves in the place of prominence subtly and by craftiness with objectives of popularity, if possible even to the degree of being worshipped. Those with a Jezebel spirit long to be praised and adored like a god. When a church is run by a leader with a Jezebel spirit, that leader will be worshipped by the congregation and he/she will encourage it indirectly usually through manipulation. The leader will not do anything to stop people from worshipping them. Apostle Paul did great works for God to the point where people’s admiration of him was slowly turning into an obsession and worship but he discouraged this in this account written in Acts 14:11-15. The only way to overcome and hate self worship is through humility. If you are a leader but not humble, you will be in danger of walking with the Jezebel spirit.

A Jezebel never forgets when they are wronged because they struggle to forgive others. Therefore, he/she will not be at peace until they find revenge, even if it takes years to achieve. Jezebels do not forgive nor forget. Such a person is capable of killing you or destroying your life. Such was the case with the Pharisees, they found Jesus’ teachings offensive and very hurtful to them and they eventually sought to kill and destroy Jesus.

A Jezebel is secretly compulsive and desperately stalks those he/she envies, being obsessive in finding every single piece of detail about those he/she hates. The person with this spirit will try and find out even the smallest of details about their opponent to use for a plot. Jezebels are demonically intelligent and will keep information for years before using it against their victim.

A Jezebel has no identity of her/his own, no real gifts or talents; like a leech they feed off others by stealing ideas and counterfeiting other people’s gifts in order to establish themselves or become popular. If a gifted or talented person has a Jezebel as a friend that person will suffer greatly because Jezebel will act like a friend, yet he/she is an enemy seeking to sabotage them and their gifts.

A Jezebel will volunteer for anything and everything in the church. You will see them participate in 3 or more ministries in the church. They don’t do so because they want to help or are called to be there but because they are controlling and want to lead many things for the purpose of receiving admiration. They also don’t know their purposeful place in the Body of Christ. This is why leaders in the Bible would only choose workers for a ministry area in the Church, after prayer and fasting (even for minor ministry areas like food distribution). Jezebels can quickly be discerned when prayer and fasting is involved but sadly in many of today’s ministries some leaders don’t fast or pray before they place people in ministry roles, they choose people based on friendships or character rather than anointing and purpose; this is why their ministries end up infiltrated by Jezebel.

A Jezebel has no close friends but has many friends because he/she is not genuine, trustful nor faithful. He/she knows that they cannot be too close to anyone as this exposes them.

Those under Jezebel in position whether in the workplace, ministry or family dynamics; will tend to fear him/her because when a Jezebel is in power, he/she has an authoritative and threatening demeanour. He/she will cunningly make you believe that you need him/her and you’re nothing without their help. They will convince you that your destiny is tied to theirs and without them you will be a failure. This is a lie from the pits of hell.

A Jezebel thinks he/she can have any man/woman they want, even if the person is already with someone. This is because Jezebel finds a thrill in destroying relationships and feels powerful knowing that another woman’s man or another man’s woman is giving them attention. A Jezebel in a woman doesn’t care if he’s your boyfriend or husband. A Jezebel in a man doesn’t care if she’s your girlfriend or wife. He/she doesn’t respect you nor your relationship and if he/she wants your man/woman, they will do whatever they can to get him/her because the assignment of Jezebel is to destroy the relationship or marriage.

He/she is the opposite of everything 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 says about Love. A Jezebel is impatient, a show off, proud, rude, selfish, provoking, thinks of evil, rejoices in sin, unbearable, unbelieving and unendurable. However, it takes one who abides in the Word of God to be able to discern this because these actions will be very subtle and unnoticeable.
