Regeneration: to be Born Again


Yes this is what Nicodemus was so perplexed about as he was a teacher of the laws that he had studied for so many years and when Jesus came along and threw all the natural and super- natural laws into chaos, he knew this was no ordinary man. He snuck into the night to meet him. Being somewhat of a coward, but just having a need to meet with Him, and that is exactly what  takes place in all of our lives in order  to meet the Saviour, he asked the pivotal question, “what must I do to enter the kingdom of God?” “I tell you the truth, a man must be born again,” Jesus answered, just as simple as that.

And as natural minded as he was, Nicodemus answered, “how can a man enter his mother’s womb a second time?” “That which is flesh is flesh, but that which is Spirit is Spirit.” Now of course, Jesus was speaking of the Holy Spirit and the regeneration. An experience that takes place with a confession of faith that cannot happen in a religious experience, which is based on a person trying to work out their salvation by covering up their discretion by works, which is a useless exercise. Dead ritual, which the Lord referred to when He spoke to the Pharisees many times. He hated these attempts of hypocrisy because they lead so many others astray. “White washed tombs filled with dead mens bones.”

The real experience is evident because it will show the new life. “Behold the old life has passed away and the new life has come! ” How many have entered into the baptismal water only to walk right back into their same life? It’s ridiculous. This is not what the Lord has asked from them. The Lord wants their whole life. This is what others want to see. Then they try to use other people as the example. The reason for this is they haven’t been sold out. They’re still holding on to self. We can’t hold on to self and be born again. The Lord expects us to give it all.

Paul said, “imitate me as I imitate Christ.” We are to be the epistles being read. It is our lives that our followers are reading. We will be the example that others are  to follow. Pray with them to receive Christ. You don’t need  a pastor to do this. We have been given all authority, that’s right, in heaven and on earth. Our Lord gave us this power when He left this earth, which means, we are ordained. Yes, give them the drink of water that they are longing for . The spiritual drink that every person needs Then they shall never thirst again!!!

Jezebel vs Jehu


enslaved by Jezebel

enslaved by Jezebel

To continue the post on Jezebel, I have done some research, since I am in a battle against this powerful spirit and it is apparent that Jezebel will be wreaking havoc in peoples lives in these last days. She is in comparison, Satan’s bride. The female demon, however, she can work through a male or female.

The people that are enslaved by Jezebel, rarely know this unless they read the Word of God and start to understand how this demon operates. This demon uses witchcraft to over power a persons mind and usually tends to use the facade of the church as her cover. The church is a very nice hiding place for Jezebel.

As I stated in my last post, Jezebel made her first appearance in the human form in 1 Kings and appears once again in spirit form, in the book of Revelation. The church of Thyratira in Revelation 2:18 is where the angel speaks about the fact that the church is responsible for tolerating her immorality and the influence she has on others. Even in Galatians, Paul speaks about those who have been “bewitched” as he reprimands these “foolish Galatians.” (Galatians 3:1) The translation of this word is “by witchcraft.”

Jezebels traits should be studied and if you are a spirit-filled believer, submitted to God, you will easily discern her operating. She loves to play the queen bee and usually tries to emasculate the men around her, and belittling everyone else. She must be the center of attention and if she thinks that a true Christian, can discern her, she does not want you to have contact with her victims. She has her victims doing her dirty work for her. She likes to remain hidden and even though she constantly sows seeds of discord and hatred, she does not want to be exposed. She will lie compulsively and is a psychopath. Her conscience has been seared.

If she senses she is losing control over her victim, she will do anything to hold on. Jezebel needs an Ahab to exist. This is the mind control that is spoken of. Totally giving their will over to Jezebel, just as Ahab did in 1 Kings, she has total control of her victim. She feels powerful and usually she destroys other people to elevate her own position.

She does not repent for anything and if she even begins to sound like it, that is usually only cursory to maintain control. It’s always a false sense of humility, because she is filled with pride.

It’s a sad demise for Jezebel, but usually only by someone like the prophet Jehu, the person operating under this spirit can be free. The male/female that the spirit Jezebel is operating through, must first acknowledge that they are indeed being influence by this demon, and then they must repent. This is the beginning of their deliverance, however, the person must recognize that this spirit can come back if they are not filled by the Holy Spirit. The Lord tells us that the “house must be swept clean and filled or the spirits will return.”

There is quite a bit of resource information on this spirit and on Ahab and in these days it is quite important for people to know their enemy!

The Lord revealed to me something that had just happened in my life and it was the classic Jezebel move. A man of God told me that this was the Lord letting me know where the enemy was at. However, after I discovered this episode lined up with scripture to a tee, the Lord reminded me that He was not jut letting me know “where the enemy was at, but Who the enemy is. This is very important when we are doing warfare and praying for those to be released from the deception of the enemy in their own lives. Most people under her power, or any demons, for that matter, rarely realize that they are under it’s control.

This is why we stand in the gap and do battle on their behalf. (2 Tim 2:26) “and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

I noticed something of interest as well in the last book of the Old Testament. The final prophecy before the return of the Lord. “See I will send you the prophet, Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the Lord comes. He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, or else I will come and strike the land with a curse.” (Malachi 4;5) I noticed that Elijah is the one that confronted Ahab and Jezebel in 1 Kings and spoke the word of the Lord to put an end to their rein of terror. Here we see  Elijah appearing once again, right before the return of the Lord and who is also working her charms? That’s right, in the last days before the return of the Lord, there she is in Revelation, Jezebel And we know from the past that Jezebel, hated the prophets of God. She had them killed because she worshipped Baal.

Even though she is hiding in the church, she isn’t hidden to those walking in the spirit, with true discernment. She is serving herself and she is surrounding herself with puppets. Her life has not been consecrated to the Lord, she only worships Him with her lips to proliferate her plans of deception.

She hated Elijah and she will not tolerate the prophets trying to disrupt her plans for her victims. She needs to remove them from her sphere of influence so that she will not be exposed. True hatred spews from this spirits mouth toward the followers of Christ who choose to live according to His words. She falsely accuses them to make them appear the opposite of the life they choose to walk in and this spirit “glory’s in her shame.” Making it appear to even the most intelligent victim, that she is very noble in her acts of corruption.

Now in the end, as I stated, it will be Jehu that comes and destroys this work. He knew his mission and would not allow himself to be captivated by this witchcraft. “She painted her eyes, arranged her hair and looked out the window. (She uses this seduction as part of her power, it is sensual and carnal.) As Jehu entered the gate she asked, “Have you come in peace, Zimri, you murderer of your master?”

Without even being caught up in her accusations or any conversation whatsoever, Jehu called out, “Who is on my side?Who?” Two or three eunichs(she surrounded herself with men that were emasculate, a picture of what type of spirit this is), looked down at him. “Throw her down! Jehu said.”

We know the rest, Jehu had her thrown from her palace wall. She is haughty and thought that she could overpower everyone, but “greater is He that is in me, than the one who is in the world.” Jehu was a mighty man of God.

  • This is the proverb that speaks of all of the characteristics of a Jezebel spirit, “There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to Him;
  • haughty eyes
  • a lying tongue
  • hands that shed innocent blood
  • a heart that devises wicked schemes
  • feet that are quick to rush into evil
  • a false witness that pours out lies
  • and Seven, remember is detestable to Him; a man who stirs up dissension among his brothers.

This is where we will see many of the traits in a person operating under this spirit. Since God does not speak of hate except in terms like this, I would pray for discernment if anyone believes they are gripped by this powerful demon and repent before the Day of the Lord. So the “hearts can be restored, to the Father.” This is first our spiritual Father and we know that Jezebel enters in, because most people influenced by this spirit, had a lost connection or skewed understanding of their own earthly father and it takes healing and restoration for this person to be delivered.

Yes, this is a powerful demon, but not more powerful than the Lord! He longs to set us free from Satans power and this is where we can see that the “ones the Lord sets free are free indeed!”
