The desire here is to bring to light the error that so many have been taught and still believe concerning the false doctrine of the spirit of Jezebel. Jacob Prasch is one who fully embraces this false teaching and who continues to add to this error. The damage that it has and continues to cause the body of Christ, something one could liken to the Salem Witch trials, no proof, no evidence, and very little scripture that is taken out of context, causes much damage to the body of Christ and His Word. There is so much error here it’s difficult to get through because it’s not just one error and lie, it’s multiple; adding to the mounting confusion on the subject. Jacob uses very little scripture; nothing is in context, no sound hermeneutics and spiritualizes almost everything. Therefore, it’s very difficult and frustrating to get through. Having to prioritize the errors and for the sake of time and length of the article, there are just some errors that must remain unaddressed here. Jacob is quoted (in bold) from several of his video teachings on the Ahab and Jezebel spirit, followed by comments and scriptures this hopefully will clearly show the error and bring clarity and understanding to a topic that has far too long remained unchallenged .
QUOTE: 5:13 (1)“We are sons of Adam and daughters of Eve. Whether we like it or not we all have an old nature, we don’t like it, but we have one and there is an element of Adam and an element of Eve in all of us. When we’re born again, we’re of the last Adam but when we’re born we’re of the first Adam we see their nature in us. Secondly, we have the father of all who believed Abraham. A gentile who God converted to Judaism. He is the father of all who believe, abba Abraham and his wife Sara ….. There’s an element of Abraham and an element of Sarah in all of us. A bit of Adam and bit of Eve a bit of Abraham and a bit of Sarah in all of us.””
By separating the husband and wife i.e. the sons of Adam and daughters of Eve, Jacob separates the one flesh, lest we forget that Eve came from Adam. So, in his theory men can only have elements and character like Adam, Abraham and Ahab and vis versa for women concerning Eve, Sarah and Jezebel. There is literally only one flesh by which sin entered the world. It seems a trivial thing but remember Eve came from Adam’s own flesh. Additionally, there is no place in the scripture that says we have elements and characters like Abraham, Sarah, Ahab or Jezebel.
Rom 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
Rom 5:14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam’s transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.
Quote: 20:09 (1) “Eve, she was seduced first. Satan didn’t go for Adam he went for Eve and this was before the fall. Once the fall happened, now she’s super vulnerable to seduction. He (Satan) comes when the man is not there. if the man is not being the spiritual covering and protector, she is super vulnerable. “
Genesis 3:6 6When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
By the statement that Adam was not there and the last statement that if the man is not being the spiritual covering and protector then she is super vulnerable; he is also saying that Adam was not exercising his spiritual covering and protection over Eve …..EVEN BEFORE THE FALL.
For everyone reading this, there should be alarms and red flags going off in your heads. There is no way Jacob Prasch doesn’t know full well what scripture says. Also, before the fall there was no “spiritual covering” from Adam.
Gen 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
Deu 4:2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you.
1 Corinthians 4:6 6Now, brothers and sisters, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, “Do not go beyond what is written.” Then you will not be puffed up in being a follower of one of us over against the other.
QUOTE: 18:00 (1) It’s easy to say that there is an element of Adam in every male and Eve in every female, it’s easy to say that …..Christians know that certainly. And its easy to say that there is an element of Abraham and Sarah in all of us. Extreme Godliness, virtue and at the same time the old nature. People know it’s true….at least Christians do. But now we come to the third case, which makes us much less comfortable…..there can be an element of Ahab in every male and an element of Jezebel in every female.
Prasch uses Adam and Eve, Abraham and Sarah and then Ahab and Jezebel (a godless couple) as a springboard for Christian married couples and the church, to identify not only trouble within their own marriages but in the church and leadership as well. Why is it, then, that Prasch doesn’t teach on the “spirits” of Adam and Eve or the “spirits” of Abraham and Sarah? If he is correct in his teaching here on Ahab and Jezebel then this would be the correct terminology for all three couples, not just one. For throughout the rest of his teachings and other videos, he clearly identifies Ahab and Jezebel as “spirits” and “demons” but no mention of the others being spirits. When humans die we do not turn into demons, nor roam the earth. This smacks of the hyper-charismatic teachings where there are “spirits” and “anointings” everywhere, the spirits of the dead Charismatic renewal leaders showing up in visions and dreams amongst the Charismania circles; of “grave soaking” where they lay on graves to soak up the dead’s “anointing”…..Prasch is selling the same snake oil it seems, only in a slightly different bottle. Keep in mind that hyper charismatic is a breeding ground for false teachings such as this.
OF SPIRITS & DEMONS
Quote (1): 36:10 Wanetta Byrum and her husband …..36:24 “They have a Jezebel”
Quote (1): 40:00 there is a woman with males on her board, who on her website and on her radio program, actually has people she knows to be heretical, people who teach that Christians are not under the new covenant and the male Christians on her board let her do it…she’s not married. That is the jezebel spirit. That’s the Jezebel spirit and she appeals to other women. It’s the Jezebel spirit. When the Jezebel spirit is there the woman will get involved in some kind of false doctrine.
Quote (1): 49:00 “Where the Jezebel spirit is, you will see an unleashed hostility, you must confront it. Hell hath no fury as the scorn of a Jezebel. Now there’s always a factor, that sooner or later becomes apparent. It’s usually not apparent at first but given enough time it will manifest. She wanted Naboth vineyard.
It’s worthy of mention here that Jacob says that Jezebel wanted Naboth vineyard. Again Jacob is re-writing scripture. While it’s true that Jezebel had Naboth killed, it was for Ahab. Ahab is wanted Naboth vineyard not Jezebel.
1Ki 21:2 And Ahab spake unto Naboth, saying, Give me thy vineyard, that I may have it for a garden of herbs, because it is near unto my house: and I will give thee for it a better vineyard than it; or, if it seem good to thee, I will give thee the worth of it in money.
1Ki 21:4 And Ahab came into his house heavy and displeased because of the word which Naboth the Jezreelite had spoken to him: for he had said, I will not give thee the inheritance of my fathers. And he laid him down upon his bed, and turned away his face, and would eat no bread. 1Ki 21:5 But Jezebel his wife came to him, and said unto him, Why is thy spirit so sad, that thou eatest no bread?
1Ki 21:6 And he said unto her, Because I spake unto Naboth the Jezreelite, and said unto him, Give me thy vineyard for money; or else, if it please thee, I will give thee another vineyard for it: and he answered, I will not give thee my vineyard.
1Ki 21:7 And Jezebel his wife said unto him, Dost thou now govern the kingdom of Israel? arise, and eat bread, and let thine heart be merry: I will give thee the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.
It seems like a little lie doesn’t it? Just like Adam not being with Eve in the garden. Or Ahab and Jezebel being demonic spirits, now Jezebel wanted Naboth’s vineyard. Adding to, taking away, twisting verses, cherry picked scripture, no scripture, spiritualizing, not in context etc.. This is the entire play book of deception and false teaching; Jacob uses them all. Deu 4:2
Quote (2): 6:32 The meaning of the Jezebel spirit is in-submission of the church to Christ. Or the church and Israel being spiritually seduced by false religion; by a demonic spirit working in the character of Queen Jezebel
Quote: 4:48 but understand it’s about spiritual seduction. The spirit of Jezebelis something spiritual. It’s illustrated between the marital relationship between Ahab and Jezebel but that’s the illustration.
Quote: 23:00 (3) It’s a Jezebel spirit and it will inevitably result in false doctrine. The fault however is with Ahab for not taking responsibility. We live in a world where increasingly the men are wearing the skirts and women are wearing the trousers. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to see an American Margaret Thatcher in the White House …but to see all these crazy women going nuts in Washington, stupid women saying stupid things…..this is because of that spirit. That’s the world but when you have it in the church you’ve got a problem and it’s in the church. Yes God can use a Priscilla but only where there is and Aquila, yes God can use an Esther but only where there’s a Mortdecai …….. Satan can use a Jezebel but only where there is an Ahab.” You understand this is the reality of the time in which we live. The wicked woman, in Revelation chapter 2, in Revelation 17 and 18, this whore spirit. This whore spirit is in the church. It nearly destroyed Israel and is destroying much of Christendom today
And what are we to make of these “demonic spirits”? As stated earlier, there is not one verse or scripture that says that Ahab and Jezebel were spirits/demons. This fact alone is enough to not only question everything else said and taught, it’s simply not found in scripture. Don’t forget that demons influence and oppress Christian men and women but they are NOT omnipresent. However, according to Jacob there are a host of Christian men and women who are plagued and oppressed by the spirits of Ahab and Jezebel worldwide. How can a demon spirit of Ahab and a demon spirit of Jezebel travel the world and oppress so many at one time? Remember not even Satan is omnipresent, he roams to and fro; how then can Satan command demons that seem to have more power than himself? And what of Satan not being able to use or command the Jezebel spirit without an Ahab spirit? Again, it implies that Satan does not have power over these two demons, they seem to have more power than himself. Also worthy of noting is, it’s odd that Jacob would tie the two spirits together as inseparable as one demon, so to speak…..yet he is quick to separate Adam and Eve from the beginning, where they truly are one flesh (Gen. 2:23). Confused yet? Food for thought isn’t it? One other critical point here that needs to be addressed; he blends the Jezebel of Rev. 2 with the harlot of Rev. 17 and 18 and calls it a whore spirit, and there is no presence of Ahab. He is taking the letter to the church of Thyatira and cramming it into the harlot of Revelation 17&18. It’s noted here briefly but it’s no small thing. (4)
Rev 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
QUOTE: 34:04 (1)“Once this wild stallion is escapes from the corral it is pointless bolting the gate. Once this wild stallion gets loose it is nearly impossible, nearly impossible to get it back in…….Once the relationship, maritally, has gone that far, once this kind of thinking takes root in the church, once it gets going it becomes very very difficult to stop it. “
So these two demons are terrorizing so many Christians couples and the Church at large and it seems that both Christians and the Church are powerless over them; including Satan himself to a point. Why is it that according to Prasch men are to attempt to “corral” it? When scripture is clear. Scripture teaches us to cast out demons by the power of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit? In all the videos and teachings Jacob has done on this topic he is quick to demonize Ahab and Jezebel, limits Satan’s control over them, makes them omnipresent, places Christian marriages and the Church at the mercy of such evil, but never once has he talked about prayer, or fasting, or casting the demon out. His solution is for men to corral the demon spirits. It’s in complete contradiction to the Word of God.
Mar 3:15 And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
Mat 10:1 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
Mar 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
QUOTE: 25:06 (1) “We are talking about the Jezebel spirit and the Ahab spirit. The Ahab spirit is obvious, it is when a male is not the spiritual head. With the Jezebel spirit we have to talk about predisposition from two aspects. “
The first is vulnerability and the second is targeting. What kind of women are predisposed to this? ……I’m not into psychobabble or psycho theology; however, it is undeniable, and it is common sense and I can find scriptural examples. Women who have had bad fathers, such as Michal, king Saul’s daughter. Women who have had bad paternal relationships with or have been hurt by a male in some devastating way naturally tend to carry that baggage into their own marriage. You have to understand the principle of new creation you marry that man, not your old man, you marry this man not the man that hurt you. But there is a predisposition to carry that baggage. Women who have been hurt are the most vulnerable to be taken in by the Jezebel sprit. Second, women who are married to men in leadership. The pastors, evangelist, missionaries to eldership or leadership in the church. The people in full time ministry. Women who are married to men in leadership the devil is going to go after the man through his wife.
Prasch tries to normalize and psychologize Ahab and Jezebel by saying that we all have elements and characters of them due to the fall. But then goes on to say that both are spiritual in nature and demonic, always pointing to Rev. 2; but don’t forget she’s given space to repent. One has to take note of his disclaimer of psychobabble, by stating: “I’m not into psychobabble or psycho theology”. Many that are still blind will not see what he does next; he says “however It is undeniable and common sense.”
By stating this he is verifying that in fact psychobabble and psycho theology is indeed a valid tool he uses. He then goes on to play armchair therapist to the entire female population. There is more than enough evidence here to prove and show the error this man teaches and there was more that couldn’t be included. Please fact check these things with the Word of God, pray for wisdom and discernment in this matter.
