Oh yeah , she exists so arogantly in Churches with the tendency and ability to in dwell both genders. For most of us are mindlessly fixated with the idea , that she resides in the female, simply based on the inception as it was initially expressed in that woman , Jezebel.
Today we now know by revelation that this was a spirit captured in Jezebel , which is essentially the Spirit of forceful control, demonstrative amidst arrant disrespect of authority by displacement through evil means, the nature being the manifest endorsement of evil and crude display of evil power, devoid of fear of God .
These vices or horrid behaviour can be found in both sexes , and must be constantly checked not tolerated and vamoused from all systems, government and the Churches . The tendencies here are total abandonment of protocol , hierachical establishment , a ramification of tyrany translating into decadence as it abuses and debases power .
How do these powers,so contrary to Gods plan find expression in the Church and even remain there ? Strange even as it is totally in variance with Gods will, even as we read in the Book of Revelations evidently somewhat undermined and tolerated, making it impossible for the perfect will of God to operate in this individual and even in the Church .
God says and is still saying , this is unacceptable, the vision is for us to be transformed not for us to conform.. The Jezebel Spirit must be eliminated consciously resisted, exorcised and totally anhilated to avoid retrogression and the embracement of sinful lifestyles . Solomon is a good example , what he tolerated , he became as he began to yearn after strange gods .
To look away , exposes us to systemic rot and eventual base and obtuse behaviours so strange violating Church setings.
This was exemplied in a first hand experience , as i encountered a very dedicated individual.in the local assembly. The tenacious zeal caught my attention , as,she readilly cleaned the sanctuary , availed herself continously for evangelism , appeared to be outstandingly conversant with the word and attentive to the needs of the Pastor and Ministry.
Incidentally in a jiffy, she was in our faces, her dedication and apparent commitment , so challenging this mode rendering most Church workers to focus, falling over themselves ,trending and agitating towards catch ups or matching her commitment as she remained relentless even whilst most gave up , throwing in the towel .
Total amazement and exhilirating fufillment came with this addition and many became flippant , to the extent that arrant rudeness displayed were undermined, ignored or even justifiable .
A complacency so common was exhibited for example, when she even expressed to me, irritation at a member this time a man for that matter, as i pondered on her impatience was disgustingly aghast as she fiercely promised to beat up the man.
How ? I retorted, this is a man, longstanding member and someones husband. In retrospect ,my response met with insolence and arrant bravado as her counternance challenged me to watch her , I looked for Pastor but he had gone to Minister ,in an outreach in the Suburbs .
This woman was manifesting her real persona , seeing we have all been sucked in, she eventually beat someone up, this time a woman, leading to her anticipated dismissal, her total exit confirmed as she married an unfortunate guy , needless to say she left the Church gasping for breath ensuring most did not forget her in a hurry . This can be worse,permissable only when we tolerate such attroocities, with carelessness the serpeant venomously does subtilly enter into the system to poison and distabilize the Church .
Another encounter was observed in this, elderly woman who based on age and duration had secured the sympathies of most members in her assembley .
This coupled with the fact that she was a woman of affluence and great means . Most heard as,she claimed to have been so provoked by a certain man of God , with this provocation, she promised to deal him a slap and tear up his clothes anywhere.
This man in question being so discerning ensured that such encounter never happened but she in turn had managed to outstrasize the man and others. For a while she got away with much slander and defamation of dignitatries till that evil spirit of control became unbearable driving her out of the assembley .Note that no attempt was made consciously to curb her execessies. This is a majour flaw, crying for attention teanslating to. many being suppressed and oppressed in the Christian fold .
Men are also culpable ,as many in the name of dedication and zeal have crushed many , subverted many in their good cause and intention. Forgetting that the Church have many parts and must engage many hands .,The Bible says sometimes rather than present self as the only living sacrifice we should prefer one another.
In refusal to be intimidated by the gifting of others as we celebrate God in others, we are more secure. Any form of readiness to castigate , defame or ill representation of others is a reflection of insecurity and vain glory. This attitude has turned many out of the fold, a reflection of flawed motives in Gods house and assembly.
To remove these anomally , the Chuch must never slip into oblivion in carrying out Gods mandate, rather we must arise to crush the sleep mode. Through endless prayers, inclusive of care with avoidance in breaking ranks, we must stick to vehement discipleship , intollerance and conscious restoration, by the discouragement of sins and manifest wickedness being the fundamental criteria with punitive and disciplinary measures and application in place which must be adhered to, always. Praying ceaselesly with revelation that Christ is the cornerstone .
