If you have loved anyone who ever had a Jezebel or a Judas spirit, I have great sympathy for you. And I use the word love, for I could be talking about a lover, or a friend.
The example, I am going to use is in friendship, and only friendship. Because I have not seen it in family, and I pray I never do.
Let me try and explain what this is first. So you can understand.
A Jezebel spirit, is someone who is not loyal. Its someone, who has a whorish spirit. I would even venture to say, someone who is very vain. Very self-centered. Narcissistic. Someone who tries to impress others. But behind the scenes, pits one against another. Instigating….
AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JEZEBEL HEARD THAT NABOTH WAS STONED, AND WAS DEAD, THAT JEZEBEL SAID TO AHAB, ARISE TAKE POSSESSION OF THE VINEYARD OF NABOTH THE JEZREELITE, WHICH HE REFUSED TO GIVE THEE FOR MONEY, FOR NABOTH IS NOT ALIVE BUT DEAD. I KINGS 21:15 KING JAMES.
The Jezebel spirit, is someone who plays the victim. Never accountable. Makes excuses, and this last thing, sadly, I see is someone who initiates witchcraft. Or who makes friends with someone who has satanic ties. Not good.
AND IT CAME TO PASS, WHEN JORAM SAW JEHU, THAT HE SAID, IS IT PEACE, JEHU? AND HE ANSWERED, WHAT PEACE, SO LONG AS THE WHOREDOMS OF THY MOTHER JEZEBEL AND HER WITCHCRAFTS ARE SO MANY? II KINGS 9:22. KJV.
All of these things God abhors. You may see all or some of these characteristics.
The Judas spirit, is someone who will betray you. As Christ knew. Someone, who will not be loyal to you. Someone who will be a false witness. Someone, who will drop you, and not stand by you. Someone who will be used by the devil.
AND SUPPER BEING ENDED, THE DEVIL HAVING NOW PUT INTO THE HEART OF JUDAS ISCARIOT, SIMONS SON, TO BETRAY HIM. MARK 14:10 KJV.
The love for money, also caused Judas to betray Christ. So if you see a love for money, from someone, beware.
AND SAID UNTO THEM, WHAT WILL YE GIVE ME, AND I WILL DELIVER HIM UNTO YOU? AND THEY “COVENANTED” WITH HIM FOR THIRTY PIECES OF SILVER. MATTHEW 26:15 KJV.
Judas, who was supposed to be Christs friend, could have repented of his sins, toward Christ. He gave Christ the Judas kiss. As if to say, my kiss, is enough to betray you. Accept it.
BUT JESUS SAID UNTO HIM, JUDAS BETRAYEST THOU THE SON OF MAN WITH A KISS? LUKE 22;48 KJV.
But Judas was not accountable. He did not repent. Christ would have forgave him, even at the cross, but he never went to the cross, instead he took his own life.
Pride…. One can see that. Pride is always evident when folks, make excuses, or is not apologetic, or accountable.
I think you might get the drift of this. So, let me just say, its hard to love folks, when you see these characteristics.
But yet you do. Or you can fall victim of that. Love can cause one to sin. Love can make one blind. Even in friendship.
This is why love of anything besides Christ, can become an idol. And you have to be careful of this. Love of money, with secret jealousies, that reveal the truth about a person.
Because all of those things I express, can not only be a betrayal to you. But to God. If you only knew how jealous God is. How He hates for any of us to wander off, and seek other entities.
Folks, if you are not reading your KJV bibles, and seeing what God hates, you are doing your own soul, a disservice. I know. The hard way. If I can spare any soul, curses, or pain, or sorrow, yes I will. And God knows that.
God is not mocked. We reap what we sow. And why would anyone want to sow, into things from the enemy? Choosing to walk out of love, in friendship of Christ. When KJV scripture says, “a friend loves at all times.” See KJV Proverbs 17:17
And well, one may see an alliance, which could also be a “covenant” with someone, who does have satanic ties.
THOU SHALT MAKE NO COVENANT WITH THEM, NOR WITH THEIR GODS. EXODUS 23:32 KJV.
Social media is very revealing, about folks. And their friends….
If you are truly a Christian why would anyone want to follow someone on social media, who has ties to satan? Thats making a covenant with them if you follow them. Because you like that? Why? I suppose one would need to ask themselves. Yet God hates it. No thank you….I would pass on that quickly. And I have….
NOTWITHSTANDING I HAVE A FEW THINGS AGAINST THEE, BECAUSE THOU SUFFEREST THAT WOMAN JEZEBEL, WHICH CALLETH HERSELF A PROPHETESS, TO TEACH AND TO SEDUCE MY SERVANTS TO COMMIT FORNICATION, AND TO EAT THINGS SACRIFICED UNTO IDOLS. AND I GAVE HER SPACE TO REPENT OF HER FORNICATION; AND SHE REPENTED NOT. REVELATION 2:20-21 KJV.
Anyway…. Its easy for me to forgive someone. To extend grace. But when that grace is not extended in return. It has to have some spiritual reinforcement, that does not come from Christ. Because Christ is love. And those spirits, can make someone do things, that goes against the spirit of Christ.
All these little things, have made me to conclude to see a Jezebel spirit, and a Judas spirit. This can destroy friendships. And thats besides the point. Know more then anything that gets God very angry. His wrath will be revealed.
So you have to beware of the ties you make with people. Because they can turn into soul ties. I am older now, but wiser. I made a lot of mistakes, and yes sins, with folks, I trusted in my youth, and even as an adult.
But when it comes to friendship, I am hard to make friends with now, because I have seen these things in friends. And it scares me. To trust folks any more. Anyway….
Sin can come in somehow. But somethings can break chief friends.
A FROWARD MAN SOWETH STRIFE: AND A WHISPERER SEPARATETH CHIEF FRIENDS.
PROVERBS 16:28 KJV.
Loyalty to God must be evident with me. This is one thing I strive to give my Lord. And I long from friends. So it must be evident by others, as an indicator, so I can be friends with someone. God has proved His loyalty to me, time and time again. He is my example. Not people.
And heres a thought about loyalty….If someone, purposely makes friends with your sworn enemy, that says a lot. That I cannot just justify as o.k.
If you see someone who has satanic ties, it should grieve you, so much that you NOW, understood, more then ever, how much it grieves God. And depart. Have nothing to do with people like that.
So one can now stay away, loyal to God. It may make you sad, but now see it very clearly, with clarity.
Beware of the Jezebel and Judas spirit. Pray about it. If you see signs, this could be God showing you. Take heed.
And as an added thought if you do see any of these characteristics on yourself. Then don’t hesitate. Make it right with God, by repenting. And actually making it right with the person, or persons, you have hurt.
Don’t forget what happened to Jezebel, and Judas. Their endings were not good. And one should avoid that. Look it up. In a King James bible. And again, I will reiterate. It has to be a King James for holiness. Other bibles are corrupted by the changing of words.
Maybe this is how you will learn. By repenting, and researching yourself, so you can see what God truly does say, about a Jezebel and Judas Spirit. I hope you find your way in our Lord Jesus. Who calls us to be holy.
And I just want to conclude my thoughts to say, I do forgive people. I do wish people the best. I have no ill feelings toward anyone. Thats not who I am in Christ. No matter how hurt I have been. I pray, God bless people. Lessons of life. But, I pray not to come from a place of judging, but warning. God sees. And I know that. So I say all of this in friendship and love. But I plead the blood of Jesus, and say, no weapon formed against me will prosper.
ISAIAH 54:17 NO WEAPON THAT IS FORMED AGAINST THEE SHALL PROSPER; AND EVERY TONGUE THAT SHALL RISE AGAINST THEE IN JUDGEMENT THOU SHALT CONDEMN. THIS IS THE HERITAGE OF THE SERVANTS OF THE LORD, AND THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS IS OF ME. SAITH THE LORD. ISAIAH 54:17
Holy King James word.
I saw an example of someone apologizing today, and it released the other person. It took the blow of it away. It was not toward me, but it is someone I do love, and I saw how that person, struggled, because of the offense. I could relate. But after a day, the other person apologized, and released this person I love. That did my heart good. So good I am writing about it.
I do, admire when someone apologizes. It takes courage, it takes truth, a humbleness, an ability to throw away pride, and say, I am sorry. I made a mistake. I was wrong, please accept my apology.
It seems like many do not know how to do that, any more. It seems like pride, takes over often. And to admit ones fault, they think is beneath them. Or makes them look inferior. But not to God, He sees….And He will judge.
So many times, its not that one might not even have the right, to be offended, with someone, but its the way, they handle it.
With either, grace or accusations, or even jealousy. Thats the wrong approach. Getting into someones business.
Pride, is such an ugly spirit, that holds one back from apologizing, and it hurts us. It really does.
I do have a forgiving spirit, I guess, because I longed for it so much, growing up, but grace was not extended to me. And I know when people are gracious to me, or giving me the silent treatment. It does tick me off, because I don’t react like that. To others.
So I am mindful, that pride is not seen, by God or others. I learned early to be accountable, and not make excuses. I have learned, Christ taught us to forgive. But it also goes hand in hand, with this thing in being apologetic, and accountable.
Yet, when grace is not extended to me, I do get put off, by people, who cannot even humble themselves, to be accountable, and say. “You know what I made a mistake.” They don’t make excuses, they just say I am sorry, and then go from there.
They don’t throw other issues in the air, they admit their wrong doing, and stick with the issue.
Being mature, being humble, to say, I am sorry, I am sure, is beautiful in the sight of the Lord.
Stand your ground, when you are offended, but extend grace if someone really is sincere. But yes, I do need to reflect in this, forgive. You see, being unforgiving, is a poison. And you don’t want that in your soul. So forgive even if you don’t get an apology.
I really do respect it, and love seeing it. If someone apologizes. That tells me, they want to grow. They want to please God, and they realize, they had no room themselves, to act like they did.
But to each their own. I have learned, you cannot make someone do something like this, unless they really see the error of it.
Sad thing is, because one never knows….
I would rather, apologize, and repent to God now, before its too late, before chances go by, before even leaving this earth.
See we know when we are wrong or right, and if pride is telling us we are right when we are wrong. Its called a a “conscience” and if you don’t get that red flag, you may be far out. And you may need to do some major repenting. Because you are hearing the wrong voice. Thats not Christ.
Something to think about, “Just My Thoughts,” today….
Blessings, and love,

REMEMBER THE LOVE THE GOOD TIMES TO GO ON EVEN IF YOU ARE HURT ~ By Elena Ramirez
Sometimes, people have to speak things over us, by God so we can see it. So, this is what I will do for you, as my husband spoke this over me.
You see, I had a very dear friend, who I loved dearly. And we were friends for over 25 years. I loved this lady dearly, and you know what she loved me. She was a very generous lady, a very kind lady, in Christ. We both were prayer warriors.
But people change, and I suppose I did too. And well the enemy divided us up. I never thought, I would see that day, but it did happen.
And I won’t go into all the details, but when respect is not given or received, or when one is rejected, well one walks away. I did. Maybe I misunderstood, but since she would not clarify it, thats what I interpreted.
Anyway, long story short, its been over a month. Since we have talked. And I don’t expect her or me to budge in this. Its not that I have pride, but I know when I have done all I can and so, I know I could not add anything more.
But I found myself getting bitter about it, angry, yes I told her I forgave, and I do. But sometimes, you can war within yourself in these matters. I did.
Last night my husband and I were briefly talking about it. And I said, I just feel indifferent now. Not that I don’t care, because I do, but I just am disappointed.
He told me, you know, you need to just let it go. You outgrew each other, and just remember the good in her, she is a good person, and for what it was worth, she blessed you, you blessed her, and now its done. Its over.
Something about his words, ministered to me. I went to sleep finally at peace about it. I prayed God bless her. She is a very kind, and generous person, and she made me laugh, and we were good friends, but sometimes, things change.
People outgrow each other, for different reasons. I suppose she outgrew me, and not that I outgrew her, because I accepted her as she was.
But I accept her choices now, and I RESPECT, her reasons. Even though I do not understand. I can go on.
Perhaps, you struggle, with someone, from your past. Someone you love. A friendship, or even a love. Remember the love, the kindness, the friendship, and don’t demonize them, or hate them, but just release them, with the love, the good that bound you.
See you have to make sure poison, of unforgiveness does not affect you. You have to make sure you are doing your part according to Christ. I cannot control the situation, but I can control how I react to it. I release her in Christ, because she was a gift.
There is a saying, if you love someone, let them go, and if they are yours they will return. I love my friend, enough to walk away, and let her go. I don’t seek to return, to her, nor do I think she seeks to return to me. It is what it is. But I accept it now, with forgiveness in my heart.
But I have peace, and thank God for the times, we were friends, it nurtured me, and I rejoice in the gift of what it was then. It was a gift.
But some gifts, are returned to the sender. No matter what the heart felt intention was. If it was not true, it will show itself. See gifts are just something that is icing on the cake.
But if the sentiment, does not follow up with respect it does not prove itself.
Oh well. God bless your day.
