There are many of women out there who are very rebellious and dominating towards men. Furthermore, I have witnessed women with mouths so foul that it makes a sailor appear to be a saint. While sitting in the sauna a few days ago, I had to ask a young woman to stop speaking such vulgar and offensive language.

Loud and abusive women please look at Biblical principles. Women are made as helpers not controllers and bullies.  Genesis 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him. Genesis 2:20

And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

Believe me…..I learned that the hard way. I use to be a bully and controller. I was stupid mad until God came and rescued me. I have testimonies and experiences that I am happy to tell because I do not want anyone to go through the pain and sorrow bad manners and bad decisions bring. However, it takes a visit and touch from the Lord to turn such behavior around.

Ladies, what is going on? Do you know that Jezebel was a woman that loved to dominate men? She was nothing nice and her own husband was afraid of her mainly because of her words and actions. Here are some passages from the Bible that may give a bit of insight on her character.

Characteristics of Jezebel:

Revengeful           1 Kings 19:2

1 Kings 19:2: So Jezebel sent this message to Elijah: “May the gods strike me and even kill me if by this time tomorrow I have not killed you just as you killed them.”

A Murderess   1 Kings 21:5-13

(NLT)   “What’s the matter?” his wife Jezebel asked him. “What’s made you so upset that you’re not eating?”   “I asked Naboth to sell me his vineyard or trade it, but he refused!” Ahab told her.  “Are you the king of Israel or not?” Jezebel demanded. “Get up and eat something, and don’t worry about it. I’ll get you Naboth’s vineyard!”    So she wrote letters in Ahab’s name, sealed them with his seal, and sent them to the elders and other leaders of the town where Naboth lived. In her letters she commanded: “Call the citizens together for fasting and prayer, and give Naboth a place of honor.

And then seat two scoundrels across from him who will accuse him of cursing God and the king. Then take him out and stone him to death.” So the elders and other town leaders followed the instructions Jezebel had written in the letters.  They called for a fast and put Naboth at a prominent place before the people.  Then the two scoundrels came and sat down across from him. And they accused Naboth before all the people, saying, “He cursed God and the king.” So he was dragged outside the town and stoned to death. 14 The town leaders then sent word to Jezebel, “Naboth has been stoned to death.”

God’s curse upon Jezebel and family

When Jezebel heard the news, she said to Ahab, “You know the vineyard Naboth wouldn’t sell you? Well, you can have it now! He’s dead!” So Ahab immediately went down to the vineyard of Naboth to claim it.

But the LORD said to Elijah “Go down to meet King Ahab of Israel, who rules in Samaria. He will be at Naboth’s vineyard in Jezreel, claiming it for himself. Give him this message: ‘This is what the LORD says: Wasn’t it enough that you killed Naboth? Must you rob him, too? Because you have done this, dogs will lick your blood at the very place where they licked the blood of Naboth!’”

“So, my enemy, you have found me!” Ahab exclaimed to Elijah.

“Yes,” Elijah answered, “I have come because you have sold yourself to what is evil in the LORD’s sight.  So now the LORD says, ‘I will bring disaster on you and consume you. I will destroy every one of your male descendants, slave and free alike, anywhere in Israel!  I am going to destroy your family as I did the family of Jeroboam son of Nebat and the family of Baasha son of Ahijah, for you have made me very angry and have led Israel into sin.’

“And regarding Jezebel, the LORD says, ‘Dogs will eat Jezebel’s body at the plot of land in Jezreel.

The members of Ahab’s family who die in the city will be eaten by dogs, and those who die in the field will be eaten by vultures.”

(No one else so completely sold himself to what was evil in the LORD’s sight as Ahab did under the influence of his wife Jezebel. His worst outrage was worshiping idols just as the Amorites had done—the people whom the LORD had driven out from the land ahead of the Israelites.)

 Jezebel Met a Terrible Death

2 Kings 9:33-35

When Jezebel, the queen mother, heard that Jehu had come to Jezreel, she painted her eyelids and fixed her hair and sat at a window. When Jehu entered the gate of the palace, she shouted at him, “Have you come in peace, you murderer? You’re just like Zimri, who murdered his master!”

Jehu looked up and saw her at the window and shouted, “Who is on my side?” And two or three eunuchs looked out at him. “Throw her down!” Jehu yelled. So they threw her out the window, and her blood spattered against the wall and on the horses. And Jehu trampled her body under his horses’ hooves.

Then Jehu went into the palace and ate and drank. Afterward he said, “Someone go and bury this cursed woman, for she is the daughter of a king.” But when they went out to bury her, they found only her skull, her feet, and her hands.

 

If you think you possess a Jezebel spirit…start rebuking it now in the name of Jesus!
