We are first introduced to Jezebel in 1 Kings 16:27-30
So Omri slept with his fathers, and was buried in Samaria; and Ahab his son reigned in his place. In the thirty-eighth year of Asa king of Judah began Ahab the son of Omri to reign over Israel: and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty-two years. Ahab the son of Omri did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh above all that were before him. It happened, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took as wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshiped him.
Not only did Ahab walk in the sins of the previous kings but he now marries Jezebel and the Lord considers this the worst evil committed by any of the apostate kings of Israel.
The city of Sidon is named after the firstborn son of Canaan. When Ham mocked his father Noah after the flood, it was Ham’s youngest son that Noah cursed, as to curse his own son (in those days) would be a reflection upon himself. So the curse transmits to Canaan, the youngest son of Ham, and thence to Sidon, the firstborn son of Canaan. In order to comprehend the Jezebel spirit it is important to understand this direct lineage to the curse of Noah, and what that curse was trying to identify and isolate.
We know the cause of the flood was the extraordinary wickedness of man, wickedness so great that God admitted He was grieved that he had ever made man. We are told the root cause of this great wickedness in Genesis 6:1-7
When men began to multiply on the face of the ground and daughters were born to them, the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were fair; and they took to wife such of them as they chose. Then the LORD said, "My spirit shall not abide in man for ever, for he is flesh, but his days shall be a hundred and twenty years." The Nephelim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown. The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the LORD was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart.
So the LORD said, "I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the ground, man and beast and creeping things and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them."
Note that the Nephelim are mentioned in verse 4, and then the great wickedness of man is mentioned in verse 5. Verse 4 is an obscure reference about the result of a union between the daughters of men and the “sons of God.” Now the book of Jude alludes to angels that did not keep within their proper sphere and incurred great judgment. There was great argument when our current Bible was being finalized in the African Synod of Hippo in 393 AD, where our current (protestant) New Testament was approved, as it stands today, together with the Septuagint books, a decision that was repeated by the Councils of Carthage in 397 and 419, other branches of Christianity included several other books, most important in our study is the book of Enoch which was accepted by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, one of the earliest and purest Christian communities.
The book of Enoch goes into great detail about an order of rebellious angels that could take human form and procreated with human females. The offspring of these unions are the Nephelim mentioned in Genesis 6:4. These were famous men, men of tremendous deeds, heroes of old. Nearly every ancient civilization has its myths of gods, and the offspring of gods. The Greeks have Hercules and Prometheus, the Norse have Sigmund and Gunnar, even earlier is the Babylonian epic of Gilgamesh.
The ancient myths of Titans and Gods, and half-god, half-men like beings are the distorted oral traditions passed down to the descendents of Noah after the flood, it is the dim awareness of the ante-diluvial age and the great evil that was loosed by the consorting of angels and humans. In some respects it was Satan’s perverted anticipation of the incarnation of God in man, and his miserable and evil attempt to produce a “christ.”
Now this line of Nephelim did not end at the flood, for Genisis 6:4 informs us that the Nephelim were on the earth in the days of Noah, and also afterward. Following is the Etymology of the word Nephelim:
The Hebrew word נְפִילִים (nephilim) may mean "those causing others to fall". Abraham ibn Ezra proposes that they were called this because men's hearts would fail at the sight of them. Jean Leclerc and Peter of Aquila among others suggest that it is derived from the warlike nature of the Nephelim; it can also be argued it means “giants.”
When Ham sinned against his father Noah, and the response of Noah was so extreme, it seems to point to the fact this was not just a son with a passing rebellion, something deeper was happening, some deep transference that Noah cursed on the spot. This “Nephelim,” input via Ham and his offspring descends down to Jezebel’s father Ethbaal who is the King of the Sidonians. This is the reason God says Ahab was the most evil of all the Kings of Israel.
We continue with our text in 1st King chapter 16:32-34
He reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria.
Ahab made the Asherah; and Ahab did yet more to provoke Yahweh, the God of Israel, to anger than all the kings of Israel who were before him.
In his days did Hiel the Bethelite build Jericho: he laid the foundation of it with the loss of Abiram his firstborn, and set up the gates of it with the loss of his youngest son Segub, according to the word of Yahweh, which he spoke by Joshua the son of Nun.
It seems wildly out of context, why jump from the story of Ahab and his marriage to Jezebel to mention the act of some man from Bethleham? The answer is because it is not out of context; the scripture in its condensed way is telling us what happens when the spirit of Jezebel comes into a nation (or our own individual hearts). Jericho was the first city taken by the children of Israel after wandering for 40 years in the wilderness. It was the most important battle of the conquest of Canaan. Jericho was a fortress city with huge impenetrable walls.
The method of the destruction of Jericho is very informative and should instruct us of the beginning steps for the conquest of the earth under Christ, in order to present to our returning King a subdued and submitted kingdom. It is important to think of the external world and all the nations, and all the realms of science, government, arts, culture, education, health etc. All those realms will be made to submit to Christ. But always more importantly is the subduing of a wild and carnal nature in each of us that is unable to submit to God, it is an enemy to God. Churchianity does not adequately address the depth of our need for Christ.
Indeed the early Church was so effective for its first 100 years because the early disciples were eye witnesses to the terrible price paid for our redemption, that price has grown dim under the clutter of church and pagan traditions mixed together during the last two thousand years. Paul could labor more abundantly than all the other Apostles, because Paul saw the depths of his rebellious nature, a nature that he came to realize hated God, even if it parades under a religious fig leaf.
The conquest of the high walled city of Jericho is instructive to what must take place within our person, what must take place on a deep and individual level. Now the people walked around Jericho for six days while the priests blew the trumpets, but the people were instructed to remain silent, but on the seventh day they walked around the city seven times and when the priests blew the trumpets the people shouted all at one time and the walls fell outward and the people went up and each man killed his foe.
This is a picture of two thousand years of Christianity where we were separated into clergy and laity (the sin of the Nicolaitans as shown by Christ to John in the book of Revelations). The clergy spoke the word of God, the people are silent. It is a reflection of the people demanding Moses go up on Mount Sinai to meet God, but they were afraid. This same theme is retold when the people requested a King during the days of Samuel the Prophet, and it grieved both Samuel and the Lord, as Samuel said on that day, “I desire that all the people of God would be prophets” (hear from the Lord themselves).
Yet a day is upon us when we will focus upon our objective and circle our enemy seven times greater than at any other time, and this time when the prophetic trumpets are blown, all the people raise their own prophetic voices, this uncovers the protective shell of our flesh that has remained impervious to our onslaughts for the ages, just a few spies making it into that realm, but no lasting or permanent victory. (Story in Joshua 6)
The verse back in 1st Kings 16:34 now makes sense, showing us when the spirit of Jezebel is tolerated, then your flesh again becomes an impenetrable fortress city. And the loss of Hiel’s sons was not some accident that happened to this man, it was the custom of the worshipers of Baal to sacrifice their sons when they laid the foundations for new buildings, in other words to maximize material wealth. That is actually the practice of abortion today where babies in the womb (I refuse to call them fetuses) are sacrificed so that our lifestyles are not inconvenienced.
I am reminded what Obama said at a stop in Pennsylvania during his 2008 campaign:
…"But it should also include -- it should also include other, you know, information about contraception because, look, I've got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old," he added. "I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby," Obama said.
How can someone not seared in his conscious talk of morality and in the next breath advocate abortions for his daughters? An ancient prophet of Baal could not put it more succinctly. It is important to note that the greatest distinguishing practices of the worship of Baal were infanticide and militant homosexuality. In fact the children of Israel were commanded to annihilate all the inhabitants of Canaan because of these despicable practices and worse. All the children, male and female were forced to serve as female and male prostitutes in the temples of Baal before they reached a certain age. The animals had to be annihilated because they were used sexually in these temples, and were now perverse and polluted.
Present day America is no better, as there are organizations that promote using children for sex, and uncountable internet websites where every sexual deviant practice is viewable for free with just a few clicks of the mouse. It is beyond coincidence that the original party of slavery (Democratic Party) has as a driving force the demand for free and unfettered abortions that have nothing to do with the life or health of the mother, they are simply abortions of convenience, and it is the political house for militant homosexuality and the attack on marriage.
During this past election the Democratic party received a large percentage of its funding and staffing via George Soros money.
George Soros is a modern day Nephelim. He is the founder and leading advocate for an Open Society, and was a Nazi collaborator in WWII. His view of a modern world is utter evil, with pedophiles free to satisfy their sexual perversions and the end of Christian morality. He has made a fortune and destroyed thousands of lives by manipulating money markets, if the GOP had anyone like this pulling strings there would be a news program daily to uncover the awful deeds.
As to the fact that Soros is a Nephelim he fulfills the description given in Genesis 6:4, in that he is renown (famous) and a giant in the financial and political world. In our present time men are not physical giants, this is no longer a purely physical age, it is an age of intellect, and manipulation, of ideologies that enslave people as sure as a race of giants.
It is an age where the hatred and ideas of fallen angels are running their course through humanity, almost like plagues and scourges upon our persons. It is the doctrines of demons and fallen angels that hold sway on the earth, an obvious creation, yet billions believe via the demonic “theory of evolution,” that all this could pop into existence uncaused, by random mutations and chance. Even a stupid child should be able to see through such a miserable fabric, yet those with the most vaunted intellect among us slavishly study dead rocks to try to find the truth of life.
So even as the children of Israel came under the mesmerizing, bewitching spirit of Jezebel, so have we, enchanted now by sophisticated glib-tongued empty suits with their appropriate Jezebel wives. In our recent history we have elected three Presidents with the same characteristics as we see with Ahab and Jezebel, first with Kennedy and his wife, then Clinton and his wife, and now Obama and his wife, as if America is determined to be seduced by Jezebel. Indeed it cannot be helped when we turn from our calling to complete what Christ started two thousand years ago.
Once empowered and married to human earthly authority the spirit (actually it is a particular fallen angel with nearly the power and global reach of Satan) seeks to kill the prophetic voice, to kill the prophets.
I Kings 18:4
Once when Jezebel had tried to kill all the LORD's prophets, Obadiah had hidden one hundred of them in two caves. He had put fifty prophets in each cave and had supplied them with food and water.
Later the great prophet Elijah confronts Ahab and Jezebel and the prophets of Baal (Jezebel wisely kept back her own prophets) and kills all the prophets of Baal, but Jezebel threatens his life and Elijah is afraid (the ridiculous power of that spirit to intimidate the prophetic voice).
Yet God helps Elijah and he trains up Elisha as a prophet in his place, and several years later after Elijah is taken up by God (he does not die) Elisha almost as a casual afterthought tells one of the young men studying to be a prophet under him to take some oil and go to the military headquarters and anoint a certain military officer named Jehu to be king.
Jehu immediately gathers his troops and rides to the city in which Jezebel is resident, on the way he sees the King of Judah who had come to visit the King of Israel the son of Ahab and Jezebel, he kills both the king of Judah and the King of Israel and finally Jezebel herself. It is most important to note what Jezebel said to Jehu as he approached:
2 Kings 9:30-33
Then Jehu went to Jezreel. When Jezebel heard about it, she painted her eyes, arranged her hair and looked out of a window. As Jehu entered the gate, she asked, "Have you come in peace, Zimri, you murderer of your master?"
He looked up at the window and called out, "Who is on my side? Who?" Two or three eunuchs looked down at him. "Throw her down!" Jehu said.
So they threw her down, and some of her blood spattered the wall and the horses as they trampled her underfoot.
Jezebel names him Zimri, a man that initiated an illegal coup against the king before Ahab. This is the actual working power of the Jezebel spirit, to transfer sins from the past to your now, to constantly hold before you the rebellion and disobedience of your flesh which if you accept her accusations will keep you trapped forever in her service, much like the eunuchs at her side had been emasculated and trapped. But now they were delivered by the violence of the spirit of Jehu to NOT accept the transference of past sins, they end up participating in her destruction. The spirit of Jehu not only kills the spirit of Jezebel, but releases those that have been emasculated and enslaved by that spirit, many for all of their lives.
There is much more on the spirit of Jezebel which I will cover in part II.
