What is Jezebel Spirit and How it Operates

Last updated on:

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.

  1. Please pray that God will break this jezebel spirit causing me to eat foods in my dreams and break the curses off my relationships and friends and God break the curses of familiar spirits that people in my dreams that are dead. I am single and 52 and every person that comes into my life leaves…please pray for God’s covering over me, my 3 sons and the people that are in and come in my circle that are my friends and have relations with..Thanks man and or woman of God…my name is Andrea

  2. Nice to see lots of comments in here, I was reading the bible today I finished off where Jezebel was thrown out of the window and trampled on by Jehus horse, then the dogs ate here corpse and scattered it just like the Lord said.
    I am going on 30 soon and my eyes were opened to the truth close to 5 years ago. I grew up in a christian home but never took it serious. I always thought just believing in God would take me to heaven if I died, but I believe if I would have died I would have went to hell. I was hanging around people that opened me up to alot of sins, drinking, smoking, porn, lusting after woman, playing to much video games, swearing/ cursing, fighting, pride, money and too many sins to list. I cant believe how blind I was and also deceived thinking that the way I was living was okay. But one day while I was working I believe I encoutered Jesus Christ and it changed my life. I was working in the woods by myself and all of a sudden it was like Jesus appeared in front of me and I just stopped what I was doing and just sat there, and from that day I was changed. He saved me and opened my eyes to the truth. I still sin, I am not perfect, I have some days where I feel like I am under attack and feel weak, but then I have other days where I feel so strong and close to God that I would never sin. Its those days where you feel weak and are being tempted all day are the days where you need to stop what your doing and pray to God and rebuke the devil, the temptations, the weakness or tiredness so you do not fall into the devils trap.
    I pray we all stay close to God, our last breath could be any minute and then where will you be.
    Praise Jesus Christ and thank him for what he has done for us and continues to do for us, who is sinless and holy

  3. Hello,
    I have been suffering for years and trying to determine if I am living out the affects of Trauma or if the Jezabel spirit has attached itself to me. My story is long and I can’t go into all detail yet I am hoping for direction so I know how to best seek healing. I grew up with mentally ill mother and watched tremendous violence with fighting between my parents that destroyed our family. I never wanted to be like my mother. I married the love of my life 30 years ago yet the past 15 years have been extremely difficult. My husband left corporate america and started a business in 2007. That business ended up failing and so he started another business that after 7 years, still has not launched. I have been the major financial provider for my family for the past 15 years and I am angry. I feel unsafe and unprotected. My husband is a Godly man and has a vision for his business that he says is ordained by god and that he is annointed to help the poor through his business. This is all wonderful except I have had to work harder than I ever wanted to support this. I have had to move multiple times to lower our expenses and I am getting more bitter and angry. I love him so much, he is so kind and would do anything for anyone. The fact that this business is being done “as ministry that will help many” gives my husband reason to press on when the uncertainty, lack of savings and constant change and chaos are simply too much for a person with a traumatic childhood. I am 55 years old and yes I am angry. I can feel like I want to explode with anger and I am being told that I have the Jezabel spirit. I have been prayed over in the past as I believe my mother also has this spirit but I don’t feel change. Instead, with each month and year that passes when my husbands business seems to take priority over the fact that the pressure I have lived under has caused me to snap. How do I know if Jezabel is operating in me or if the trauma of my background and living in such financial uncertainty for so long has caused me to be broken hearted and worn out with a just anger. Please offer some insight. I do not want to cause my husband pain yet I am in so much pain carrying so much pressure that I might act like I have Jezabel in me. It scares me.

    • Dear Kas,

      I have little to no experience in this arena and I am not replying under any pretense of such; but I do have a question for you. Who, exactly, is tellling you that you have a Jezebel spirit?

      I’m praying that God’s glory will fall on you in a great way and make some things clear to you about the truth of what is going on in your situation. I’m also praying that you will not be influenced by a spirit of fear or a spirit of manipulation, but by His love and His truth and the courage to speak and deal honestly with your husband about this situation. I’m also praying that your husband will begin to cherish and honor you in a new way and in a way that nurtures you. Blessings.

    • sorry but your husband sounds like he is the one with the problem.if God wants him in a certain business to help the poor, it would be doing well by now. hes the one with issues and he needs to wake up to the fact that you are tired being the provider whilst he continues to fail to provide for his own family, let alone any poor people.

    • It doesn’t sound as if you have a Jezebel spirit. A Jezebel spirit’s key function is to bring down (intentionally) the people of God and preferably his prophets or what we know now today to be our pastors. Jezebel wants to destroy God’s church. You are just tired and exhausted. Keep in mind that God’s intent for woman was never to be the provider, when we as women go out and work that is a choice we make on our own. I understand your frustrations In having to hold up the household, I’ve been in this position for a while . What you need to do is Repent of anything that you in know God is not pleased with, even if it’s your attitude. Then fast and go into prayer seeking direction from God asking him what is his will and what do you need to know and what do you need to do in this season you’re in. Sometimes the Lord will allow a situation in our life to occur to get our attention so we will pray (commune, fellowship, build a relationship) with him. He wants you to know who he is and what HIS vision is for you, that way no one not even your husband can take you down a path that God hasn’t approved (not saying this is the current case). Develop a relationship with Jesus Christ now to settle this.. be Baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost if you haven’t done so already, Jesus is coming soon! God bless ❤️

    • So sorry KAS; I think you are conflicted because your home is not in godly order. God did not make the female to carry this kind of load so you are out of place. Your husband needs to take his rightful headship spiritually and emotionally. I don’t blame him for wanting out of Corporate America – Surely there is something out there for him so you can be free from the weight of responsibility. I think the adversary is using your mother to accuse you. 13yrs seems long enough and the economy is really unstable now; but God can make a way where there dosen’t seem to be a way when we are willing to do it his way and His Word says that a man who does not provide for his own family is worse than an infidel. His anointing rests upon His Word. All Love in Him ..

    • You are angry and frustrated because you are operating in a role that belongs to your husband. Your husband has abandoned his role. He is not upholding the vows he made to you at the marriage altar. How can he want to help the poor through his business if he is unable to provide for his own household? If the business has not launched after so long, what does your husband do with his time? What are his daily activities like? He does not have to return to corporate America in order to provide for his family. He can learn a skill and earn from it. there is no excuse for not providing for ones family if you are physically able to.

      1 Timothy 5:8
      But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

      This is a difficult situation but remember to respect and honor your husband always despite the challenges.

      Pray and seek counseling from a godly pastor who will be able to influence your husband to do the right thing by obeying God and providing for his household. Remember to seek God always through prayer and by reading the Word.

      I wish you well

    • Pray to god &Jesus ask jesus to take control and lead you life ,,please do read holy bible , there is power in God’s word , keep pray and live in God’s word and his principles, God will heal you and evil spirits will eventually fade away, keep in mind god is grater one in the whole universe. And Satan and his demons has been kick out of heaven , Jesus has conquered them and the deaths. Keep close to God you will be saved and you family will be blessed!!

    • I too had a narcissistic mother, that has caused me to be connected to men who are also narcissists, very destructive and self centered. Even though your husband appears to be Godly, he is using it as a front for his agenda. Satan is very subtle. You can seek counsel on this, but in general, in order to preserve ourselves and our lives, we need to separate from narcissists, or they will seek our demise. Only God can have dominion over a spirit such as this. Have nothing whatsoever to do with this evil spirit. Ephesians 5:11

    • Thanks for sharing your heart, Sis! It can be very upsetting to be the main financial provider as things may seem & feel “out of order” Biblically.

      I am not sure if there is a spirit of Jezebel present; however, there seems to be a lot of built up anger and resentment (equally deadly/destructive). The Bible calls this a “root of bitterness”.(Hebrews 12:15) We’re told to guard against because it “defiles many”.

      So, If you want to be free, forgive your husband. Forgive him for the unmet expectations, additional stress, and whatever else the enemy is using to keep you bound and bitter. Love deeply. This will make forgiveness easier. (1 Peter 4:7-8)

  4. A dream God gave my niece :
    I was standing on a Rock and God was in front of me. Water flowing over pebbles between us. The devil was standing quite a way from us. And depicted as a woman with a Jezebel spirit. I was holding a sword . And God showed me to lift the sword and place it point down into the water – there was such a surge of Electrical Power and such a bright light that it was Awesome! So God showed me that it was the Word of God placed into the Life giving water the Spirit of God that has this Electrical current Power ! It’s how we overcome the spiritual attacks present in the World. God showed me in my dream that it’s the Power over the Jezebel Spirit .

  5. It’s so weird. I had a court marriage with this spirit. At first, she seemed like a savior as I was going through a court case at the time. She immediately volunteered to help out even though it was not her place to do so. After this she had this need for adoration and praise as she was there throughout the entire process. Soon after we married, things started to take a nose dive; more arguments, there was a thirsty need for dominance and control. At times, when we argued and I simply said no, she’d go incredibly mad, violent, sadistic, verbal and emotionally abusive. Within the chaos I would see and hear sneers coming from her, she would have this evil voice like she was possessed or something. She would violently hit her head on the wall and objects, cut her Arm open, threaten to commit suicide if I didn’t conform to her demands and ultimately become a “monster”. There is no doubt about the smear campaign designed to destroy my image in everyone’s eyes! She would come online with these unreasonable assumptions and would be so committed to driving the knife into my already shattered heart. She would even make threats to my work, to people I knew especially girls as she was so jealous of them. They just want ultimate control over our lives. After numerous arguments I started to identify the spirit and would even say she is acting unGodly because of how rampant her bad behavior was! She had lots of self harm tactics to further emotionally abuse me. Crazy making, word salad, manipulation, guilt trips, playing victim and all out hate towards me. I started to realize when we were separated, she’d go and destroy my name to each and everyone. Her family also knew about her behavior but did nothing to correct her properly.i believe her family were also in on this form of witchcraft because I pulled her dad aside many times to complain but he just look at me with an empty stare. Her mother raised her not believing in God so this was also a little clue to their wickedness. Once when she was acting in all out rage, her mum said if anything happens to her that she’d blame me!!! Run as far away from this people as possible because all they want to do is destroy whom they can’t control. Run!!!

    • I lived with the same thing but I kept my faith in God and sad to say she died in her sleep at an early age, I cant say I was happy about it but I was releaved but sad to say I see the same thing happening to my present wife,

  6. My younger sister got roped into the circle of a woman with the jezebel spirit. After researching this person I’ve found she is connected framing people of crimes, enticing others to outright commit crimes and also connected to some who have taken their own life. She knows how to keep the law and authority on her side as she is cunning and intelligent. After more digging I found the common thread in all of her targets is that they are all believers or have some type of Christian background. My sister went from happy and healthy to suicidal and volatile after 2 months exposed to this woman but still considers this woman her savior. We were fooled by her charm and beauty. We have such a large blood family and family of believers and are shocked that somehow this jezebel spirit got its claws into someone we love. She has convinced my sister that she is all my sister has in this world. All we can do is pray for God’s grace and mercy to redeem and save. I have never depended on God so much in my life. It has truly taught me complete reliance on the Lord, a lesson I wish I didn’t have to learn this way. Praying for you all.

    • Mathew 18:18 is a scripture I lean heavily on. Each day as we bind – all principlaliteis, powers, rulers of darkness, spiritual wickedness in the heavenly places, generational and territorial demons. our loved ones eyes will open. Her 33:3 call to me and I will answer you.
      I have a husband (Pastor) with what I perceive is a Jezebel Spirit, for the 20yrs of marriage it has been horrific.
      OVERCOMING- by holding tight in prayer, confession, working hard on keeping good Christian friendships, teaching my children fervently and showing them the love of God. By His Grace all five of them, though scarred by His wickedness (constant criticism, very cruel verbal, financial, abuse, no emotional support) they are all walking with God. Each day we (me and our children) are on the alert. This article helped me by giving pointers of how to pray for him, but as the article says he is so consumed with pride, I accept it may never happen.

      • Hi Sis, yes there is hope first understand your Authority, you have AUTHORITY over that jezebel spirit that’s operating. This cometh out but by PRAYER and FASTING. Ask Holy Spirit how long should your fast be for? Ask him how long etc? Bind that spirit up and cast it out. You will have to be radical. Speaking into the atmosphere. I declare and decr my husband is filled with The Holy Spirit I dec and decr my husband loves God and serves God w his whole heart. Pride is Leviathan spirit get scriptures on God slaying the dragon(Leviathan) with your strong sword O God. It must be spoken DAILY. maybe 6 months maybe a year. Go to park, your back yard keep speaking w AUTHORITYIN THE NAME OF JESUS No demonic spirit should be usurping Gods power in your home. Jesus is head over your husband and you arent to be tormented but you should be free. Take Authority and USE YOUR POWER. Jesus said I give you POWER TO HEAL THE SICK, RAISE THE DEAD, AND CAST OUT DEVILS.. Bind up JEZEBEL, LEVIATHAN (USE SWORD OF SPIRIT) WORD OF GOD, NARCISSISTIC SPIRT ANY THING OPERATING IN YOUR HOME NOT LIKE GOD…and yes I’m a Minister of the gospel and a praise and worshipper and had to deal with this in my relationship prior to marriage through the Power of the Holy Ghost…
        More grace.

        • From what you said, you absolutely do not have a jezebel spirit no ma am not at all, you are weighted down from responsibility who wouldn’t be, that’s a heavy load to carry, people will label you certain things and have no idea what they are talking about, anger is a natural emotion, God told us we could be angry but sin not, pray and ask the Lord to deliver you from being angry and ask him Lord how do I cope with the pressure and the weight that is placed upon me, Lord teach me how to turn to you in every situation, I pray you be blessed and learn to not vent to everyone, find one God fearing person to confide in that will tell you what this says the Lord, and pray and tell God about your problems more that people, he hears you, he cares all about what you are going through and he wants to help you, pray pray pray, tell Jesus all about. You don’t even have to let anyone know that you are praying but just pray and watch God turn your situation around, it may not be how you planned it, but give your control up and let God have his way. Be blessed!

  7. But it’s not the person, right? I mean, the person needs deliverance , healing and restoration, to be restored to God and themselves and whatever Godly relationships were destroyed ? I’m reading some comments where it appears as though the Person was evil. Once deliverance is obtained the demonizéd person is delivered, they can begin to be the person God created them to be, correct ?

    • Correct, but you also have to be aware of the person until they seek deliverance and that’s even if they truly want it or not. Continue to pray for the person until the Father truly delivers them.

    • Yes, you are right. The person is being used and oppressed by the demonic force. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. (Ephesians 6:12) We have to remember that God calls us to love one another and that we are all His children. When we cast judgement on the person who is suffering affliction, we become no better than the Pharisees. Jesus, is the only One who was without sin. Whenever, He casted demons out of men not once did He pass judgement on the person. Instead, He had compassion on them. (See, Mark 5:18-20)

    • I do think it is the person James 1 13-15 says
      “When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.”

      No where does this verse mention demons. We are tempted to sin by our OWN desire and our OWN sin nature! The verses used to justify a lot of what is being stated on this page and in these comments (such as Ephesians 6:12) are being twisted to fit a specific viewpoint that is not inherent within the text. I believe that it’s far more dangerous for us to blame people’s sin on demons affecting them than to wrestle with our own depravity.
      Additionally, as temples of the Holy Spirit, no demon can possess us (if we are redeemed in Christ), so when we sin it is our flesh, not some evil spirit’s manipulation. Once we blame spirits, we absolve ourself of guilt and risk abandoning the practice of repentance.
