How Does Spiritual Warfare Affect You?

God’s word speaks about the absolute reality of a conflict we face as believers, and we often call that conflict “spiritual warfare.”  C. S. Lewis warned us decades ago, though, that believers usually fall into one of two camps when dealing with the demonic: we deny their existence, or we get fascinated with them. Either way, we too often miss the Bible’s basic teachings about this conflict.

The Bible is a book about God, not the devil.

  • We are instructed not to magnify the devil’s power but rather God’s power.

 

Satan and his demons are real.

  • The Bible reveals Satan and his demons as real, supernatural beings who oppose God and his people. Any attempt to negate the reality of Satan and his demons are inaccurate.

 

 


 

 

 

Satan Is Not Our Biggest Problem.

  • We face three enemies: the world, our flesh, and the devil (Eph. 2:1–3). In some cases, the three are so interwoven that it’s difficult to tell them apart. Our primary problem is not Satan, though. We are often the biggest problem.

 

God is in control over all things, including Satan and his demons.

  • There is a conflict between human beings and the devil because God put that conflict there (Gen. 3:15). That conflict would ultimately lead to the cross at Calvary, where the death of Jesus would break the power of sin and death. (Col. 2:15).

 

Satan is a defeated foe.

  • Satan has been bound through God’s judgment, and the cross is being bound through the preaching of the gospel and will be bound for eternity. We do genuinely wrestle against principalities and powers (Eph. 6:12), but the devil and his demons have only been allowed to do what God’s will allows for God’s ultimate purpose.

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 an evil spirit in Satan’s kingdom. There is only one devil, one Satan. Still, many spirits 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.
Many deliverance ministers have used the term “Jezebel spirit” 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 when she was ruling.
As we explained to you in our article, “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 demons’ function names would be:

Spirits of lust, spirits of anger, spirits of murder, etc. The demon’s function name 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. The 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 of 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.
