As the popular saying goes, “If you have found something you love, release it and let it go. If it comes back to you, it was meant for you.” The Jezebel spirit would add, “If it does not, hunt it down and kill it.”
By now it is apparent that Sarah Palin has no depth or content as she is establishing herself as a “new, conservative feminist”.
It’s a 22 year ministry that I’ve been obedient to and consistent in. I stand for the precepts and principals of GOD at the Alaska State Fair, and this year it was made clear to me that I’ve been called to confront many different issues personally as a Christian, as well as belief systems other than Christianity.
I’m not just to affirm the TRUTH of Christ but to confront those in opposition of Jesus Christ with respect and of course love. Sarah Palin has created a whole new set of obstacles in this endeavor.
Two things have always plagued the Church- control and the desire to dominate. This power struggle has always divided and short –circuited secular institutions as well as the power of the Church. The desire to control and dominate, if not mastered or confronted, can lead to witchcraft, since witchcraft is nothing more than illegitimately controlling the will of others. Witchcraft which is the work of the flesh Galatians 5:20, manifests in three ways—manipulation, intimidation and domination.
Sarah Palin has set herself up as an illegitimate authority, as the symbol of Conservatism and Christianity in these last few years. Palin has NO real knowledge or life experience that could benefit anyone in these areas, but, she never the less has been given illegitimate authority by just demanding it. She has essentially hijacked and laid waste to common sense and accountability in politics and even more devastating in the Christian church. She has wielded power with the help of media, who doesn’t require credibility from those who are popular celebrity types who provide a draw or in this new modern age of computers–click ability. The Jezebel is fierce, vindictive and seductive. Those who are weak in spirit WILL NOT or CAN NOT confront what is obviously a spiritually sick human being who believes that they are either solely ordained by GOD or perhaps that they are GOD. Sarah Palin is the epitome of a controller, being totally possessed by the Jezebel spirit. This spirit, in full maturity, is in total rebellion against God, and it tries to turn everything into the opposite of what God intended. Basically, it hates all order that God has set up in life.
CONFRONT: Face up to and deal with (a problem or difficult situation)

Confronting Jezebel– Discerning and Defeating the Spirit of Control. By Steve Sampson
Through prayer, things eventually came to a head. You don’t have to be Christian to catch Sarah Palin in several inconsistencies in her words and deeds. Jezebels don’t release power easily. She draws sympathy from family, friends and fanatics whom she has already craftily intertwined in her life. Keeping to the function of the Jezebel spirit, Palin has sown damaging seeds in so many lives but was able to skillfully portray herself as the innocent person who has been treated unfairly. Taking on the spirit of a martyr, she has quickly enlisted many in her “cause”.
Confrontation is the ONLY ‘cure’ in dealing with a Jezebel. The unconfronted person’s roots will go down deeper, more lives will be tainted until the person is ultimately confronted. These people simply have worked their way into these positions of influence because they’ve never been confronted, they are seemingly immovable. Naturally, God desires that Christians mature into His divine love, abandoning selfish gain, motives and ambitions.
But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your heart, do not boast and lie against the truth. What they impart is not from above but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self- seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing will be there. James 3:14-17
Discerning Christians who could have potentially been a blessing to that individual or organization senses the influence of a strong Jezebel personality (male or female) and NOT the person of the Holy Spirit.
FYI, God is doing some housecleaning in these days. Judgment begins in the household of God. 1Peter 4:17. HE is raising up leaders who, like David, have a heart after God Himself. They have NO agenda or need for recognition.
While reading this book, I quickly claimed it as an answer to my prayer. I have tried to confront this wicked Jezebel spirit that I discern in Sarah Palin for several years now. If not for the fact that mislead people won’t quit trying to make the idea of Sarah Palin the Jezebel happen, this all would be primarily her personal spiritual lesson. But, instead secular and Christian tenants are being manipulated, vilified and marginalized by the person of Sarah Palin. And if those who have perpetuated her have taught us anything over the last few years, it’s that the more the media takes you as a serious contender and literally ignoring this Jezebel personality, the more people start to forget that you’re completely disingenuous, and revealing prominent characteristics which are greed, manipulation and lying.
30 Amazingly Consistent Traits of the Jezebel Spirit
“Jezebel is a spirit, but it has found access through uncrucified flesh.”
Although the Jezebel spirit seems to be more prevalent in women, there is no doubt that it functions just as proficiently through men.
1. Refuses to admit guilt or wrong
A Jezebel spirit is never wrong, unless it is a temporary admittance of guilt to gain “favor” with someone. To accept responsibility would violate the core of insecurity and pride from which it operates. When a Jezebel apologizes it is never in true repentance or acknowledgment of wrongdoing but rather “I’m sorry your feelings were hurt.”
2. Takes credit for everything
While a strong trait of Jezebel is to never take responsibility for her wrong actions or behavior, she also is quick to take credit for benefits for which she contributed no effort.
3. Uses people to accomplish its agenda
The Jezebel spirit lets others do its dirty work. The Jezebel gets another person’s emotions stirred up, then lets that person go into a rage. The Jezebel sits back looking innocent, saying “Who me? What did I do?” This behavior makes it difficult for even the most ardent truth seekers to pin one down. The Jezebel spirit is clever in its agenda.
4. Withholds information
This is a form of control. A Jezebel wields power over you by knowing something you don’t know in a situation. In the eyes of a Jezebel, having information you don’t have is a powerful weapon of control.
5. Talks in confusion
It is impossible to converse with a Jezebel in logic. This is a way to maintain control and domination. When confronting a Jezebel, the subject may be changed five times in one minute. Confusion keeps them “undiscovered” and unexposed.
6. Volunteers for anything
A Jezebel volunteers in order to establish control. She seemingly has endless (nervous) energy and eagerly looks for opportunities to be in charge of projects. Although she will work hard, her motive is never pure, and eventually her secret agenda cannot be hidden.
A Jezebel lies convincingly. No one can lie better than she can. She can turn on the charm and make you believe blue is red. She always fools those whom she’s just met while those who have been victimized by her tactics stand by helplessly. The fact that Jezebel can look you in the eye and lie just shows how strong and adamant this rebellious and recalcitrant spirit is.
8. Ignores people
A classic ploy of a controller is to ignore you when you disagree with her. This tactic is frequently used by leaders when someone doesn’t agree with their plans, and they isolate the person by ignoring him. Some in these situations have been ignored for months, just because they chose not to be a puppet and say to every idea or whim. This puts the person out of the leader’s grace and forces him to either “come around” to the leader’s way of thinking or be indefinitely ignored. One is not free to disagree with a Jezebel.
9. Never gives credit or shows gratitude
A Jezebel will rarely acknowledge another person’s actions, not even for something that turned out to greatly benefit the Jezebel. She just cannot bring herself to say thank you or to acknowledge that someone else did something right. There are those who have gone out of their way to bless a Jezebel by being the catalyst of sending him on a trip or giving a gift. Yet never will there be a thank you. This again puts the controller in a position of power.
10. Criticizes everyone
This is a characteristic of a controller. She has to be the one who looks good, so he will quickly sharply criticize anyone who makes a suggestion or plan. Even though she likes the plan, she can only criticize it because the idea did not originate from her. Criticizing others elevates the controller in his own mind.
A person with a Jezebel spirit will always upstage another person. She feels threatened by anyone who dares to steal the limelight or anyone who is a threat to her power and control. If you are with such a person and tell of your accomplishment or victory, you can be assured he will quickly tell of something he has accomplished.
12. Sequesters information
A Jezebel loves to be in control of information. If there is ever a situation where information is important, she will push to be the “first” to know it. She seems to know everything about everyone. Where she gets all her information is beyond comprehension, but he can dictate to you data and details about people’s lives and actions in mass quantities.
13. Uses information
A Jezebel uses information as a leverage for power and then shares tidbits with you, often things told him in confidence. This gives her a sense of power, even to the point of trying to impress people by “knowing things” that others do not.
14. Talks incessantly
Many people talk habitually, but a Jezebel uses talking as a form of control. In a typical conversation, she does all the talking, whether it is about politics, the weather or the Kingdom of God. Because of this form of control, she is unable to receive input from anyone in her life. All conversation with her is one-sided. You are doing the listening.
15. Spiritualizes everything
When a controller is confronted, he commonly spiritualizes the situation, explaining it off on God. This prevents him from owning up to responsibility required of him. The implication is always, “You’ve got the problem; I don’t.”
16. Is insubordinate
A Jezebel never takes the side of the person in authority, unless it is a temporary action to make herself look good. She often will take credit for someone else’s idea. Her main desire is for power and control. There is no conscience when an opportunity for recognition presents itself.
17. Is pushy and domineering
A person with a Jezebel spirit pressures you to do things, seemingly ripping from you your right to choose or make a decision for yourself. She makes others feel as though they don’t have enough sense to think for themselves.
18. Is clairvoyant
Many who operate with a spirit of control also have a clairvoyant spirit. A Jezebel has supernatural help in knowning and sensing information. If he uses this against you, he may say “I can’t tell you how I know this. I just know it.” This is not the Holy Spirit, but the help of a clairvoyant or familiar spirit. Clairvoyance may be defined as the power to perceive things that are out of the range of human senses.
19. Uses the element of surprise
A Jezebel’s main thrust is to be in control, and a large part of control is catching you off guard. Therefore, the element of surprise works well when he shows up a day early for a meeting, etc.
20. Sows seeds of discord
A Jezebel will continually belittle another person in the most subtle way. The strategy is to “gain” control by minimizing the value of another person. It is common for him to tell half-truths to implicate another person in your eyes. By sowing these seeds, he hopes to eventually reap a harvest of destruction, improving his position of power.
21. Commands attention
A Jezebel likes to be the center of attention and doesn’t like to see others recognized and lauded. When someone else is recognized, he will quickly undermine the person’s accomplishments verbally.
22. Is vengeful
Since a Jezebel is never wrong, if you contradict or confront one, get ready to become his worst enemy. As long as you are in agreement with him, all is fine. But if you confront or challenge him, then look out. You are the target of his fiercest venom. A Jezebel will stop at nothing to destroy your reputation.
23. Attempts to make you look like you’re the Jezebel
A Jezebel spirit is difficult to pin down. If the person is near to being confronted, he or she will skillfully twist the entire situation, trying to make the innocent person look like the one who is attempting to control. As always, the Jezebel will do anything to look like the one who is right.
24. Insinuates disapproval
A Jezebel will often imply disapproval to those under his or her control. The controlled person feels no freedom to express an opinion, for fear of disapproval. This often manifests in a marriage or in a working environment.
25. Knows it all
A Jezebel is usually blatant regarding his knowledge of everything. Quick to express his opinion in any area, he leaves little room for anyone to point out the other side of an issue. He has made idols of his opinions.
26. Is ambitious
The Jezebel has strong desire, but all for self. “I want what I want when I want it,” describes his worship of self-will. A Jezebel leader will never use the words, “We have a vision,” but rather, “My vision is thus and so.”
27. Gift giving
Gift giving is a form of manipulation a Jezebel uses that always makes you feel obligated to him. It also compromises the victim in speaking direct and confrontive truth. Naturally, not everyone who gives gifts is guilty of control, but gift giving is a tactic used by those who have a need to control.
28. Is independent
No one has input in a Jezebel’s life. She fraternizes with no one unless it is to get you to “cooperate” with her agenda or if it benefits her personally.
29. Is religious
A Jezebel dwells in the local church but doesn’t respect authority unless she is in the position of authority.
We all want to believe that the person with a Jezebel spirit is delivered. The person may seem “normal” for a period, exhibiting none of the classic traits. Then suddenly without warning a situation will arise, once again with the spirit taking control and wreaking havoc over lives. Hopefully, true repentance will come. Only then will the person be delivered.
The good news is that God gives each individual person the freedom of choice. Everyone has the freedom to make decisions, to make mistakes, to think for themselves, to communicate, to like or dislike and to express their taste and creativity.
Those who control are in worship of their own wills and their own ways. This is in direct conflict with GOD and HIS Word.
