«Spirit of Elijah vs Jezebel by Tracy Eckert I want to talk to you this morning about the Spirit of Elijah and the ...»
Kingdom lives, ministries, and businesses in these last days. I am going to share with you some of my own personal experiences with this spirit throughout the message.
Malachi 4:5- 6, Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, And the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.” I The Spirit of Elijah was on John the Baptist before Jesus came the first time, and will rest on the generation before the second coming of the Lord.
The purpose of the Spirit of Elijah is to PREPARE the way for the coming of the Lord by turning the hearts of the fathers to the children and the hearts of the children to their fathers…TURNING THE NATION BACK TO GOD.
They are a company of PROPHETS who are walking in signs and wonders with the word of the Father in their mouths releasing heaven to earth. They awaken the people from living OFF of the earth (from the earthly realm), and remind them of their identity and mission.
Generational reformation. Their voices will begin to take on the political powers and shake the thrones of witchcraft, religion, lawlessness and iniquity in the land.
The evil of selfishness and love of self in the last days will create a generation of fatherlessness so people will not receive their identity as son
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Ephesians 6:12 I am going to talk about this in terms of the church and business and how destructive it is.
Read Rev 2: Church in Thyatira: aka. TOLERANT CHURCH.
Church is growing spiritually.
Calls herself a prophetess who is given a position of influence to TEACH the people (mentioned to give note that she prophecies accurately and is walking in power, person of influence). Influence is due to her nearness to those in authority.
Seduced the bondservants of the Lord to be involved in immorality (physical pleasure outside the will of God) and idolatry (accessing God through any other way than the Holy Spirit).
1 Cor 10:20- 21–idol worshippers are interacting with demon spirits, an encounter with power but they are not by the power of the Holy Spirit. I cannot take you or lead you into a heavenly encounter with God, I can tell you how to posture yourself, and give you testimonies and practical examples, but it is the Holy Spirit who leads you into all truth. Him and Him alone.
Immorality defiles us physically (sexual immorality defiles us on the inside) and idolatry defiles us spiritually. Net result is that it shuts people down to fellowship with God and with people. THIS is a hindering spirit so we don’t advance and even go backwards.
Jerusalem counsel–Early church fathers decided that a Gentile didn’t have to become a Jew to be saved.
They decided that had to do 4 things: stay away from sexual immorality, things sacrificed to idols, things strangled and from blood.
Allow: it means to ALLOW one to do as he wishes. (The first commandment in the satanic bible is DO WHAT THOU WILL). The Jezebel spirit is subtle and works through spiritual intimidation, lying, fear, deception. There are examples of this also playing out on a national/political level. The Jezebel spirit does not allow freedom to address/correct. If there is someone in your life, church or business that you dread confronting, it’s possible there is a spirit there.
In order for there to be a Jezebel spirit operating, she needs an Ahab to control. There has to be one who
“…and he (Ahab) went and served Baal and worshipped him. Then he set up an altar for Baal in the temple of Baal which he built in Samaria” 1Kings 16:31- 32 C.
Jezebel hires 850 occultist prophets and feed them at her table.
Ahab provoked the Lord to anger more than any other king before him.
God sends Elijah to declare to Ahab that he will proclaim judgment on the land.
“As the Lord God of Israel lives, before who I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years,
except at my word”. 1Kings 17:1
As long as you have authority, this spirit will try to attach itself to you. They are so wounded that they have to control people to keep from feeling rejected. Robert Morris of Gateway Church said, “The most subtle way that a Jezebel spirit gets into a leaders life is through a friend or close associate. They want to be your best friend, they feel called to you, called to minister to you, called by God to serve you, or God called me to be your intercessor.” We have people who work here and we have intercessors who pray for the church, but I only have one personal intercessor and that is my spiritual mother who wakes up at 4 am daily to pray for me. I am called to serve you. Again, this is not a person but a spirit that enters into a person through rebellion/rejection issues.
Fear – When Jezebel found out that Elijah had been successful, she threatens to kill him and Elijah ran for his life. People that have a Jezebel spirit have to control. The minute we addressed this spirit, out came the accusations that were filled with spirit of murder and rage. Gripping, suffocating fear.
Isolation – when you want to get away from everybody and everything – a.
Solitude is different than isolation; solitude is getting alone with God. Isolation is I want to get away and be with me. I want to run and get into a cave. I wanted to leave town, leave reality and escape, watch TV while eating a gallon of ice cream.
Exhaustion – where you can hardly keep going. Energy sapper.
