Continued Deliverance from the Jezebel Spirit

 

Thirty-five years of casting out devils has taught me many things about evil spirits. I frequently hear people speak of the jezebel spirit as some spirit that should be feared. The jezebel spirit is a spirit of witchcraft having its origin in a female and operates in both male and female. There is no reason to fear this spirit or any other spirit for that matter. Evil spirits occur in various strengths. In other words some are much stronger than others. When I first began to cast out devils I could only get the weaker ones to go. A person's faith and love is developed by God to perform the task God wants to have done. You cannot just do this, as you will. Obedience is better than sacrifice.

 

Mark 9:14-29 will show us differences in faith {i.e. The Lords compared to His disciples}

 

"And when he came to his disciples, he saw a great multitude about them, and the scribes questioning with them. v.14

 

And straightway all the people, when they beheld him, were greatly amazed, and running to him saluted him. v.15

 

And he asked the scribes, What question ye with them? v.16

 

And one of the multitude answered and said, Master, I have brought unto thee my son, which hath a dumb spirit; v.17

 

And wheresoever he taketh him, he teareth him: and he foameth, and gnasheth with his teeth, and pineth away: and I spake to thy disciples that they should cast him out; and they could not. v.18

 

He answereth him, and saith, O faithless generation, how long shall I be with you? how long shall I suffer you? bring him to me. v.19

 

And they brought him unto him: and when he saw him, straightway the spirit tare him; and he fell on the ground, and wallowed foaming. v.20

 

Spirits see me and they are afraid of the power in me. They will scream, run away from me, or accuse me saying, "I am the devil."  The demons in those people are talking, and the demons are afraid of the power of God in me.

 

And he asked his father,  How long is it ago since this came unto him? And he said, Of a child. v.21

 

And ofttimes it hath cast him into the fire, and into the waters, to destroy him (This is the devils goal to destroy you. You cannot let demons take you away from the power of God): but if thou canst do any thing, have compassion on us, and help us. v.22

 

Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth. v.23

 

And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief. v.24

 

When Jesus saw that the people came running together, he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him. v.25

 

And the spirit cried, and rent him sore, and came out of him: and he was as one dead; insomuch that many said, He is dead. v.26

 

But Jesus took him by the hand, and lifted him up: and he arose. v.27

 

And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out? v.28

 

And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting." v.29

 

These passages tell us that some devils have a greater hold on people than others and they can only be cast out with prayer and fasting.

 

Mark 1:21-27, "And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught. v.21

 

And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes. v.22

 

And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, v.23

 

Notice Mark says a man with an unclean spirit and he (one single spirit) is speaking.

 

Saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy (loose away) us? I know thee who thou art, the Holy One of God. v.24

 

It is apparent that there is a spokesman for a group of demons that is in a person.  The spokesman knew who Jesus was.

 

And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. v.25

 

And when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him. v.26

 

The unclean spirit (singular), being the spokesman, cried with a loud voice and came out of him.  The spirit had torn him and cried (cried out) with a loud voice (sound).

 

And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him." v.27

 

I came to Plano on August 1, 1980 with this ministry and moved into this building January 4, 1981.  Some time after that a young man from Plano began coming to the front of this church. He first spoke with Terry Mai. He would not enter the building, but he would stay outside and talk with Terry briefly. It is possible that he attended one service before he spoke with Terry.  He told Terry that he didn't want to be around me, because I was too strong for him. I began to go out front and talk with him. I made friends with him. One day I got him and brought him in and set him on the back seat in the sanctuary.  I told him I was going to pray for him today, and at the end of the service he got up and went out.  I followed after him and got him by the arm and said, "Come on let's go back in here." He was reluctant. Those demons did not want him to be with me. They were afraid of me because of the power of God in me. I brought him and set him on the front row in the sanctuary, and I started praying, casting devils out of him. There were some releases in the spirit as I prayed. I said to him, "How do you feel?"  The devil in him said to me, "We are not all gone." I put my hands on his head, and I commanded the devils out of him, and they left. He said, "It felt like a covey of quail flew out of my chest." I share this testimony because there were many devils that came out of him. What always amazed me, they did not come out until I laid hands on his head. Which makes me believe that the intellect has something to do with controlling these demons. Just a matter of interest, he testified to the fact, that he and his friend could go into a Charismatic church and through meditation could cause the preacher to be confused. He also related to me that through meditation they could use their eyes and put holes through automobiles and doors. He apparently had great supernatural power.

 

God gave me several experiences in casting out devils and healing the sick prior to 1983.  In 1982, I made two trips to Mexico, and there I saw many devils cast out and miracles of healing. One miracle was a young man fourteen years of age who was healed of blindness in an Assembly of God Church in Rio Bravo. In September 1983, God directed me to take Word of Faith satellite. I took eight seminars a year for three years.  During that period of time, my faith came under severe attack. Those people talked of casting out of devils, but I never saw one devil cast out by any of them. In January 1985, God sent me to Zimbabwe to Forward in Faith Ministries.  I saw many devils cast out and many people healed in that two-week period. All of these paths were for the perfection of my love and my faith to deal with God's people.

 

As my faith and love grew, God led me more and more to deal with the jezebel spirit amongst his people. In February 1992, my television ministry went national in Joplin, Missouri, Tulsa, Oklahoma, South Bend, Indiana, Indianapolis, Indiana, Houston, Texas, Southern California, and so on. When my television ministry went national, I was teaching scriptural teaching that the law is not made for a righteous man (I Timothy 1:9) and exposing more of the jezebel, which brought great affliction and persecution. God has sustained me in every attack. The jezebel is a teacher of the law, but it does not want to live by the law.  It only uses the law to establish its opinions.

 

 

God bless you,
