Jezebel’s footprint is all over this nation, but she is coming down! The reason she was so powerful was not that she was a witch, it was because she was a political figure. She was a Queen over a nation. That is why our nation is in a political conundrum. I was on a call with intercessors from Nigeria in late 2019 and one of them said, “Americans are going to have to fight demons they have never had to fight before.” In the midst of the demonic onslaught over our nations, the workplace has become egregiously hostile and violent.
The landscape is forcing people to embrace ideologies they would normally reject, and I am praying for you. Elijah’s overthrow of Jezebel is a call to action for the prophets of God in every generation. We are no longer dealing with a physical person but a spirit that has been passed down through the bloodline and is operating unopposed in many churches.
Revelations 2:20 says, “Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching, she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols.” It is important more than ever that we man our post, it’s time for you to be a prophet within your jurisdiction. A prophet’s responsibility is to control the traffic in and out of the region or territory they have been assigned to.
Make no mistake you are in a spiritual war. You are not fighting against flesh and blood but against principalities, powers, and rulers of darkness. Paul indicates that we are in a wrestling match. You are a contender in a ring. The Romans knew that when the Gladiators entered into combat someone was going to be mortally wounded. Let’s make sure it is not you! You do not have time to get your feelings hurt, become a victim, or go AWOL. You must stand up and fight for what is rightfully yours. The art of war is the ability to strategically identify, dismantle, disarm, defeat your enemies and benefit from the spoils of war. In order for you to establish strongholds and build an effective battle strategy, you have to understand who and what you are dealing with. Sun Tzu said, “Know thy enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles, you will never be defeated.”
If you are clear on who you are, and what your assignment is and have identified those that oppose you, your victory is assured every single time. There is no one who can hinder you or stop what God has already ordained to happen in your life or business. Everything God has promised is yours. Romans 8:37 assures us that, we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. The war in the marketplace is raging but I hear the Spirit declare, “Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him. As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God. But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.” (Psalms 68:1-2).
The marketplace is in upheaval and in a raging war. War is, "a state of armed conflict between different nations or states or different groups within a nation or state." War has been part of every civilization in history for centuries. Some have been necessary others have not. It is probably the most important part of society throughout the ages. Every nation has fought enemies both foreign and domestic. In the natural, it is highly organized and brilliantly strategized. It is emotionally ambiguous on one hand and absolutely necessary for the survival of any civilization. it has helped shape humanity, fight for freedom, and change history. In the New King James version, the word “war” is mentioned 361 times. Almost signifying a battle every day of the year. As a believer, you are fully equipped to fight Jezebel and be victorious. I decree the spirit of Jehu is rising up in you.
2 Kings 9:30-33 depicts Jezebel's demise and ends her tyrannical rule over the people of Israel.
Then Jehu went to Jezreel. When Jezebel heard about it, she put on eye makeup, arranged her hair, and looked out of a window. As Jehu entered the gate, she asked, “Have you come in peace, you 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.
