In the past parts of this study, we say already many fruits from Jezebel and Ahab described. In this part we are going to look at the specific fruits. But before you continue, please keep in mind that it doesn’t mean that someone has the spirit of Jezebel or Ahab, when you see one or two fruits that you recognize. It is possible, but it’s not a fact until the Holy Spirit confirms it or when you start to recognize other fruits as well. We need to test everything before we draw any conclusions, otherwise we can damage and divide, which is also an aim of satan. Gods aim is to unite and to have a united bride. But not at any cost.
Before this world was created, there was a time when satan was called “Lucifer”, the carrier of Light. He was a beautiful creature, he was the worship leader of heaven. Even his body was some sort of instrument to worship God with (Ezekiel 28:13). Back then he was the only anointed cherub, covering the throne of God (Ezekiel 28:14). No other creature was ever so close to God then he was at that time. If there is someone who knows what worship, anointing and wisdom of God are, then it is satan. He also was very familiar with the FIRE of God. After all, he served God in the midst of all those things for a long long time. Until he was banned from Gods holy mountain, because of his pride.
The story of Jezebel and Ahab contains many patterns in behavior where we can learn a lot from. First there is seduction. This seduction causes spiritual blindness and deafness, when someone falls for it. Jezebel seduced Ahab and he fell for it. Then there’s the next step in the process, which is gaining more authority by marrying Ahab. The fact that Ahab married the daughter of the king of Tyrus wasn’t the bad thing. The bad thing was that she was a priest of Baal, a worshiper of idols, and that she had no intention to turn her back to those idols, to serve the One and only God.
It turns out that the father of Jezebel wasn’t just the king of the Sidonians. Sidon was a city that was part of the district Tyrus (Tyre). So in fact, we’re talking about the king of Tyrus, who is mentioned in the Bible as well. When we look Ezekiel 28, then we see a description of the king of Tyrus in verse 1 till 10. But strange enough, he is not called a king, but a governor.
When our Lord Jesus Christ came to this earth, His goal was to restore the relationship between men and God. The relationship between Father God and His children. By His ultimate sacrifice, He enabled this for all of us, through faith. We were made to worship our God in spirit and in truth. Not just by singing a few songs, but by living a lifestyle of worship in spirit and in truth.
