Hi, about the time Leanne wrote her post on the Jezebel Spirit, I also was writing a post to follow her soon after. A mite bit later than hoped, here it is…”
a couple of quotes to start the ball rolling…
“Jezebel crushes the will, and especially the will of man to make them passive. Jezebel’s main purpose is to destroy the image of Father God from the earth so that people will not want to reach out to Father God.” -Mariett Louw
“When a woman has a Jezebel Spirit she has first of all been Satanically seduced herself. Lets go back to the garden. The serpent came to Eve. He seduced Eve, then he used Eve to seduce Adam…” Jacob Prasch

The Hebrew word lə-ḇad-dōw translated as ‘alone’ in Genesis 2:18 means – alone, apart, bar, besides, branch, by self, of each alike, except, …and interestingly -strength (SEC). It comes from ‘badad’– a primitive root –‘to divide’:- to be solitary or alone. Brown-Driver-Briggs has this to say of the Continue reading →
