INFO ON THE SPIRIT OF JEZEBEL & OVERCOMING PRAYER
(This is an excerpt only – the article is 51 pages long – for full article please go to website)
Excerpts of article by Amanda Buys:
Ephesians 6:12 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.
So, here we see, that the war we are fighting is not against men and women, but it is against principalities, against powers, and against the rulers of the darkness. It was now about 12 years ago, that someone shared with me, that she had heard of a minister that said he would never counsel or minister to anyone, unless, he first broke the three legs of Satan. And he described it as Satan at the top, with Jezebel beneath it, with anti-Christ off to the one side of it and death and hell off to the other.
2 Corinthians 2:10-11 “Now whom you forgive anything, I also forgive. For if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ, 11 lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.”
JEZEBEL IS NOT A SPIRIT. IT IS A WORLD PRINCIPALITY AND A WORLD POWER! And we will see that, when we study Jezebel in more detail. So, I want to say that Jezebel is a world principality and a world power. Jezebel can be summarized in one word------WITCHCRAFT! Witchcraft is the one word that describes a Jezebel principality. I want you to see in Revelations 2:20 "Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.”
God was speaking to the Church and He addressed Jezebel WITHIN THE CHURCH! And this principality often works through religious or Godly people because it is so subtle….it is so sly ….that it can very, very easily affect the Body.

I also pray, Holy Spirit, that You will lead me on this new road and that You will help me in this process of renewing of the mind in all of these areas. I pray that You will take hold now of all the branching and infiltration and working of the Jezebel spirit in all parts of my body and soul, and pull it out of me until nothing remains!

He makes my feet like the hinds'; He sets me secure and confident upon the heights. He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; and Your condescension and gentleness have made me great. You have enlarged my steps under me, so that my feet have not slipped."

know his voice. They will never follow a stranger, but will run away from him because
they do not know the voice of strangers or recognize their call.".

2) a cancellation of all worship she ever received through me, my
ancestors or descendants
3) nullification of any and every covenant ever made with her

In the authority of the Name of Jesus Christ, I now take this seat in myself and hand it over to the Kingdom of God. Father, in Jesus Name I ask that You will remove the following curses and results due to my ancestors' and my own involvement with this Jezebel spirit's activities:
1. Curse of a bed of anguish and suffering
3. Curse of the utmost judgment
4. Curse of death (Rev.2:22,23)
5. Curse of humiliation and nakedness

16. Curse of loss of children
17. Loss of marriage partner
18. Curse of disasters and evil
19. Loneliness and desolation
20. Curse of witchcraft
21. Curse of persecution.
I pray that You will change each one of these curses to blessings in my ancestor's, my own, and my descendant's lives, in the Name of Jesus.
In the Name of Jesus Christ, I now bind and rebuke the spirit of Jezebel from my life.
I speak destruction over the altars where the spirit of Jezebel received worship in my life, and I erect an altar there for God. It is written:
"David built there an altar to the Lord and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the Lord heeded the prayers for the land, and Israel's plague was stayed." 2 Sam.22:25.
The stronghold in my life where Jezebel has lived, is now destroyed and a throne for Christ Jesus erected there. In the Name of Jesus Christ, I now speak withering and death over all fruits of manipulation through the spirit of witchcraft in my life.
I pray that You will remove all leaven that caused me to walk under the control of this spirit, from my habits of thinking, my will, emotions and body.
Father, in Jesus Precious Name, I pray that the spirit of Elijah will rise up within me to expose the spirit of Jezebel in the Body of Christ. I pray Father, that the hearts of the fathers will be turned towards the children according to Malachi 4:5,6. I pray that the disobedient will be turned towards the wisdom of the righteous - that You will enable me to outwork Godly principles to handle problems in my life.
I pray that more and more spiritual fathers and mothers will come forth out of our midst to show the way and to take Your children by the hand and to lead them on paths of righteousness. I pray Father, that You will see to it that, through Your Spirit, I will be prepared as part of Your Bride without spot or wrinkle.
Thank You, Abba Father, for Your great mercy and grace. Please seal this prayer now with the precious Blood of Jesus Christ and thank You that You have heard me and that You free me!
