“Olly olly oxen free, Jezebel and Leviathan.” The game is over. We know who you are and what you do. You are the thieves that “come only to steal and kill and destroy…” (John 10:10) relationships, personal identities, and livelihoods. We are calling you out and banishing you to join the other unholy spirits in your hometown of hell.
You may be saying, “Wow, what’s that all about?” As I work with individuals and couples, there at times when I see the spirits of Jezebel and Leviathan working feverishly to create fear and wreak havoc in marriages. Jezebel, Leviathan, or both as partners manifest in people’s worldviews, choices, and behaviors in similar ways. Jezebel is the control freak and manipulator. Leviathan is the great relationship divider—creating separation from God and others and rejoicing in conflict and contention. Together they show up as the narcissist.
Do you have a feeling or inkling that these spirits may have any influence in your life today? If so, don’t feel ashamed, embarrassed, guilty, or even beat yourself up. These spirits are invited into a child’s life at an early age based on your parents’ behavior. When a child doesn’t feel loved, lives in fear, has his/her heart broken, and lacks a sense of security or protection, the anger and bitterness open a portal for the spirits to enter and take up residence in the child’s mind.
Were you physically, emotionally, or verbally abused in childhood? If so, you could be suffering from the influence or torment of a spirit. Unfortunately, adults who’ve been living with the Jezebel/Leviathan spirit may not be able to discern the spirits, because the spirits have a stronghold on their mind. Evidence of the spirits will be in the lack of “fruit” in a person’s life. Do you have difficulty reading the Bible without falling asleep? What is the condition of your marriage and relationships with children and colleagues. Would your friends truly be there in times of need, or do you call them “friends” because of what you can take from each other?
Jezebel is the number reason for divorce. This spirit will cause a spouse to be selfish, controlling, and abdicate any responsibility. The blame will always reside with the other spouse. Does this sound familiar?
Are you tired of failed relationships, torment, misery, anxiety, and conflict? If you believe you’ve got a spirit influence, the only way to rid yourself of them is to forgive and repent. You and Jesus hold the power to bind and caste out the devil.
