What is Jezebel Spirit and How it Operates

Without question, the nastiest, evil, most disgusting, cunning, and seductive spirit in Satan’s hierarchy has to be what many call the Jezebel spirit.

This evil spirit has been responsible for not only tearing down churches, pastors, and different Christian ministries, but it has also been responsible for breaking up many marriages, friendships, companies, along with getting many people to commit cold-blooded murders and suicides.

For those of you who have been hit and slimed by this evil spirit, or have encountered it in some way, you will know exactly what I am going to talk about in this article. It is without question, one of the most evil and vile things I have ever come across in my life. Like Satan, this type of spirit is simply pure evil.

Over the last 20 years or so, I have encountered this spirit myself at least 5 different times, with it being attached to a specific person each time I had encountered it. As a result of meeting this spirit head on a good five times, I have developed quite a bit of information and knowledge on how this spirit works and operates.

I believe the Lord allowed me to have access to these 5 people when I did so I could end up writing an article like this one so I could teach people how to spot one if they ever had one come into their midst, whether it be at home within their family, in the middle of a church or ministry, or even at their place of work.

What is a Jezebel Spirit?

What is the Jezebel spirit? The Jezebel spirit is not just one spirit like Satan is.

This is a “type” of evil spirit in Satan’s kingdom. There is only one devil, one Satan, but there are many spirits that would be considered a Jezebel type spirit, as they all have a particular type of personality and a specific way in which they like to operate.

The reason many deliverance ministers have used the term, “Jezebel spirit,” is because of the nature of its personality and the way it operates once it sets up shop within someone.

The word “Jezebel” is coming from the OT story of Queen Jezebel back in the days of Elijah. She was a ruling queen back at that time and she had cold-bloodedly killed many of God’s prophets back at the time she was ruling.

As we explained to you in our article titled, “The Different Kinds of Demonic Spirits,” demons have two different names. They have their created name given to them by God when they were first created, and they also have a function name, which will tell you what kind of spirit you are dealing with.

For example, some of the function names of demons would be spirits of lust, spirits of anger, spirits of murder, etc. The function name of the demon will tell you the nature of their personality and what they like to specialize in once they move in and attach to a person.

A spirit of anger will try to get a person to act out in fits of rage and anger. A spirit of murder will try and get someone to commit cold-blooded murder. A spirit of lust will try to get a person to commit fornication and/or adultery.

However, when you come across a Jezebel spirit, it is something quite different. Some people have called this a “master” type spirit. Not that it is a master spirit in the sense of being like God, but that it is much more intelligent and cunning than a lot of the other demons are.

Many believe that this type of spirit may be Satan’s smartest and most cunning and evil spirit he has, and he thus dispatches this kind of spirit on specific targets so he can get the most bang for his buck.

Simply put, a Jezebel spirit is one of Satan’s higher-ranking, more intelligent demons if not the smartest kind of demon he has in his kingdom.

And with it being much more intelligent than many of the other lower-ranking demons will be, this makes this type of spirit much more evil, cunning, and harder to deal with once it moves in and attaches to a person.

And with this kind of evil spirit being much more cunning, intelligent, and evil than some of the other lower-ranking demons will be, it will cause a lot more trouble and destruction if it is not quickly dealt with and cast out.

Looking back over my 5 encounters I have had with this spirit, the one thing I have noticed are two specific things:

One, this spirit operates in basically the same way every time it moves in on someone. As a result, it is actually easy to spot after a certain length of time. In other words, it keeps playing the same types of games every time it moves in on a person or a situation.

The second thing I noticed is that this spirit is much more intelligent, cunning, and seductive than many of the other types of demons will be. It will thus be capable of playing more than one type of game with you.

For example, a spirit of anger will only try to make you mad and angry, but a Jezebel spirit will play a number of different games with you as I will show you below when I start to describe the way it will operate and the different kinds of games it will use to try and bring you down.

As a result of this type of spirit being capable of playing more than one kind of game with you, this makes this kind of spirit much more deadly and destructive.

If this spirit is not properly exposed and dealt with within a reasonable length of time, it can totally destroy and completely bring down a marriage, church, ministry, company, or an individual’s life.

The Bible tells us in Matthew 12:43 that there are levels of wickedness in Satan’s kingdom. And if there are levels of wickedness in his kingdom where some demons are actually more evil than some of the other ones will be, then I believe there may different levels of intelligence among the demons as well.

The Jezebel spirit, since it is much more intelligent than some of the lower ranking demons will be, is very good at playing head games with people. It is a total control freak, and it is also very good at manipulation and getting people to do its evil bidding.

Over the years, I have developed quite a bit of information on this type of evil spirit and how it operates, and I now want to share it with all of you so you will be able to spot one if it ever moves into your circle of influence – whether it be in your marriage, in your church, at your place of employment, or in between any of your personal friendships, as this evil spirit loves to break up good and godly relationships.

In part 2, I will show you How the Jezebel Spirit Will Operate.

I just had a minister cast out this spirit from me. I'm shocked and confused. I came here for answers. I've always been quiet and usually do not like to take on roles. I however admit I have a 'know it all' attitude sometimes, and post a lot of christian-centred posts on SM, although I have never challenged authority. When I have been dissatisfied with leadership in a church, I quietly left. I however have been plagued with rejections and pastors embarrassing me in public. It has kind of made me very visibly introverted and more to myself. I do not trust others. But I would never be termed the trouble maker. In my workplace, when there was dissention, instead of being the instigator I was the one who kept holding in and only had an outburst with the instigator once. About prayer, deliverance and prophecy, I love prayer and believe God has called me to be an intercessor. I always join this ministry. In the past year, I am learning and loving the art of spiritual warfare and am always sharing such videos with family and friends. Like, it is that obvious. I believe strongly I the prophetic and love to learn from Streams Ministries and understand dream interpretation. I also dream a lot. Averaging two dreams per night. Although I have had many attacks at night. This is not in a bid to clear my name but to ask questions. My first question is, is there a difference between being possessed by this spirit and being oppressed by it? I have had lots of mental health issues and faced a lot of rejection most of my life. About sexual seduction, I agree with what you write in the sense that I believe I have had a higher than normal number of men try to seduce me. I never go after men to seduce them. I however admit that there were times when I may have dressed in tight clothing etc. But which woman hasn't? I have blocked several men who kept lusting after me. But I was never the one pursuing. Ever. I'd be grateful for am answer to my question because I am genuinely confused. I do not disbelieve the deliverance. I only am beginning to think we might not know enough about this demon and how it operates. Thanks.

Hi, need help with ridding the jesabel spirit from me. I hear it talking both beside my ears and in me at ALL times, including sleep. I have not known silence in more than 14-16 months. There are many voices occurring simultaneously, and also includes physical touching, poking, hand gripping on limbs and head.

After reading the article I still am both aware of it and what it does, God exposed it for me, and yet still I am under its influence...

Need help?

This spirit(s) is so common now, this is a wonderful article, bless you in your courage and faith. It's so sad that the sign and symptom of superiority and entitlement complex that a lot of people display gets rationalized and justified, and so few seem to know any better. They'll often use passages they find in the Bible to back up their superiority and their biases. There is no superior status of one person over another in the Lord except when a person takes up a leadership role, which is about service and responsibility to others, not domination or status. And being "submissive" to others is what all are supposed to be doing toward all the others in our lives as acts of care and respect toward our sisters and brothers, God's other children. It doesn't mean being a lower or subordinate person/being, nor randomly submitting to other people's superiority issues or domination. (Intimidation is one of the signs of the Jezebel spirit). Such entitlement status and positions are what man creates. However we as believers are specifically instructed to "Love God with all your heart" and "Love our neighbors as ourselves". Neighbors as in everyone around us, our partner, family, children, extended family, neighbors, etc. So when a person puts themselves above another, or puts a person in a lower position underneath themselves or others, they can't be "loving the person as themselves". And they're certainly not focused on "loving God with all their heart". Obviously there are positions of natural authority, but that's just about parenting and elders who are supposed to be responsible for properly guiding and caring for children and young adults. Other than that, it's just about service, not domination or higher status. And giving respect toward whomever happens to be trying to do a leadership position is part of an individual's responsibility; the leader today has the same responsibility toward the one who takes up a leadership position tomorrow. We're to help others lead when they volunteer to do so, and they're to help and support us when we volunteer to do so. And just in regular life as well.

Undermining another just because we don't want them to have a position of leadership in some capacity, because we project "inferior status" onto them as a person,is a big Jezebel spirit symptom. And that's one of the biggest destroyers of family, churches, any kind of relationships, community, etc.

Jesus said specifically, when he was asked, that these two commandments are what all the other laws/commandments are based on. So if something doesn't align with those two, then it's not valid.

I had an experience recently that shocked me. I thought this Jezebel story is a myth. However the aggression,sometimes violently and the swearing and shouting were unbearingly and started without any sound reason and without any sign of conscience or none or little recalling. The person will hurt herself and then accuses the other person for doing it which is very dangerous if is not on camera. Your private prayers would be interrupted with an excuse it is interfering with her time. Close facebook friends from the victim were invited over time by the aggressor and posts where the aggressor pleaded victim were then made to steal the infuence of the victim without the knowledge of the real victim. The victim was blocked to prevent any responses. This strange behaviour stops as suddenly as it started and then person becomes the love-able person you know. Confessions like..."I have seen the video you took and are ashamed to face the people who might have heard me shouting" were made. This habbit will repeats itself and it seems one way to stop it if all else have failed is to get a protection order.
