  • - I want you to look with me
  • 00:00:33.210 --> 00:00:34.280
  • today in Revelation 2,
  • 00:00:35.090 --> 00:00:38.090
  • and I'm going to begin reading
  • 00:00:38.090 --> 00:00:39.280
  • with Revelation 2:17.
  • 00:00:39.280 --> 00:00:42.200
  • "He who has an ear to hear
  • 00:00:42.200 --> 00:00:44.050
  • what the Spirit is saying,"
  • 00:00:44.050 --> 00:00:47.010
  • -- I don't have time
  • 00:00:47.010 --> 00:00:47.190
  • to read that.
  • 00:00:47.190 --> 00:00:48.050
  • Revelation 2:18.
  • 00:00:48.050 --> 00:00:49.150
  • "And the angel of the church
  • 00:00:49.150 --> 00:00:51.170
  • in Thyatira write,
  • 00:00:51.170 --> 00:00:54.040
  • 'These things, says..."
  • 00:00:54.040 --> 00:00:56.110
  • -- who's saying this?
  • 00:00:56.110 --> 00:00:57.110
  • The Son of God.
  • 00:00:57.110 --> 00:00:59.080
  • "Who has eyes like
  • 00:00:59.080 --> 00:01:00.020
  • a flame of fire,
  • 00:01:00.020 --> 00:01:01.150
  • and His feet like fine brass:
  • 00:01:01.150 --> 00:01:03.280
  • 'I know your works, love,
  • 00:01:03.280 --> 00:01:06.010
  • service, and faith.
  • 00:01:06.010 --> 00:01:08.170
  • Your patience,"
  • 00:01:08.170 --> 00:01:09.210
  • -- as your --
  • 00:01:09.210 --> 00:01:11.010
  • "...as for your works,
  • 00:01:11.010 --> 00:01:13.150
  • the last are more
  • 00:01:13.150 --> 00:01:14.270
  • than the first.
  • 00:01:14.270 --> 00:01:16.070
  • Nevertheless I have
  • 00:01:16.070 --> 00:01:19.020
  • a few things against you,
  • 00:01:19.020 --> 00:01:20.200
  • because you allow
  • 00:01:20.200 --> 00:01:21.140
  • that woman Jezebel,
  • 00:01:21.140 --> 00:01:23.240
  • who calls herself a prophetess,
  • 00:01:23.240 --> 00:01:25.230
  • to teach and seduce
  • 00:01:25.230 --> 00:01:26.280
  • My servants to commit
  • 00:01:26.280 --> 00:01:29.050
  • sexual immorality
  • 00:01:29.050 --> 00:01:30.290
  • and to eat things
  • 00:01:30.290 --> 00:01:31.240
  • sacrificed to idols."
  • 00:01:31.240 --> 00:01:33.220
  • Listen to this:
  • 00:01:33.220 --> 00:01:35.010
  • "And I gave her time to repent
  • 00:01:35.010 --> 00:01:37.010
  • of her sexual immorality,
  • 00:01:37.010 --> 00:01:39.050
  • and she did not repent."
  • 00:01:39.050 --> 00:01:41.030
  • "Indeed I will cast her
  • 00:01:41.030 --> 00:01:43.150
  • into a sickbed,
  • 00:01:43.150 --> 00:01:45.240
  • and those who commit adultery
  • 00:01:45.240 --> 00:01:47.110
  • with her into great tribulation,
  • 00:01:47.270 --> 00:01:50.270
  • unless they repent
  • 00:01:50.270 --> 00:01:53.180
  • of their deeds."
  • 00:01:53.180 --> 00:01:54.220
  • And then, I want you
  • 00:01:54.220 --> 00:01:55.190
  • to really focus in on this,
  • 00:01:55.190 --> 00:01:57.150
  • Revelation 2:23.
  • 00:01:57.150 --> 00:01:59.040
  • "I will kill her children
  • 00:01:59.200 --> 00:02:02.220
  • with death,
  • 00:02:02.220 --> 00:02:04.120
  • and all the churches shall know
  • 00:02:04.130 --> 00:02:07.130
  • that I am He who searches, "
  • 00:02:07.130 --> 00:02:09.100
  • -- notice this now:
  • 00:02:09.100 --> 00:02:11.250
  • "The minds and hearts."
  • 00:02:11.250 --> 00:02:13.220
  • Everybody say,
  • 00:02:13.220 --> 00:02:14.070
  • "Minds and hearts."
  • 00:02:14.070 --> 00:02:16.290
  • "And I will give to each of you
  • 00:02:16.290 --> 00:02:18.180
  • according to your works."
  • 00:02:18.180 --> 00:02:20.270
  • Revelation 2:26.
  • 00:02:20.270 --> 00:02:21.260
  • "He who overcomes,"
  • 00:02:21.260 --> 00:02:23.050
  • -- overcomes what?
  • 00:02:23.050 --> 00:02:23.290
  • The spirit that
  • 00:02:23.290 --> 00:02:24.230
  • He just described:
  • 00:02:24.230 --> 00:02:27.040
  • "He who overcomes
  • 00:02:27.040 --> 00:02:28.090
  • and keeps My works
  • 00:02:28.090 --> 00:02:29.140
  • until the end,
  • 00:02:29.140 --> 00:02:30.120
  • to him will I give power over
  • 00:02:30.120 --> 00:02:32.020
  • the nations --
  • 00:02:32.020 --> 00:02:33.210
  • 'He will rule them
  • 00:02:33.210 --> 00:02:34.190
  • with a rod of iron;
  • 00:02:34.190 --> 00:02:35.140
  • They shall be dashed to pieces
  • 00:02:35.140 --> 00:02:37.090
  • like potter's
  • 00:02:37.090 --> 00:02:38.050
  • -- clay --
  • 00:02:38.050 --> 00:02:39.150
  • "...like potter's vessels..."
  • 00:02:39.150 --> 00:02:40.130
  • What's beautiful about this is
  • 00:02:40.130 --> 00:02:41.290
  • He said, "In the end,
  • 00:02:41.290 --> 00:02:43.210
  • I'm gonna give authority
  • 00:02:43.210 --> 00:02:45.010
  • to people who have
  • 00:02:45.010 --> 00:02:45.250
  • been broken vessels.
  • 00:02:45.250 --> 00:02:48.000
  • I'm gonna give broken vessels
  • 00:02:48.000 --> 00:02:49.190
  • power and authority to rule
  • 00:02:51.100 --> 00:02:54.100
  • in mighty ways."
  • 00:02:54.130 --> 00:02:57.130
  • I wanna talk to you about
  • 00:02:57.130 --> 00:02:58.180
  • something very different today
  • 00:02:58.180 --> 00:03:00.100
  • that God laid on my heart
  • 00:03:00.100 --> 00:03:02.220
  • that I believe is a word
  • 00:03:02.220 --> 00:03:04.120
  • very much in season
  • 00:03:04.120 --> 00:03:05.190
  • for our lives.
  • 00:03:05.190 --> 00:03:06.120
  • I'm preaching today
  • 00:03:06.120 --> 00:03:07.230
  • on Jezebel's children.
  • 00:03:09.140 --> 00:03:12.140
  • We've all probably heard
  • 00:03:12.140 --> 00:03:13.150
  • people refer to Jezebel,
  • 00:03:13.150 --> 00:03:16.050
  • but I wanna talk about
  • 00:03:16.050 --> 00:03:17.240
  • Revelation 2:23
  • 00:03:17.240 --> 00:03:19.110
  • where He makes reference
  • 00:03:19.110 --> 00:03:20.150
  • to Jezebel's children.
  • 00:03:20.250 --> 00:03:23.250
  • And I believe the Lord
  • 00:03:23.250 --> 00:03:24.200
  • is going to speak to us today.
  • 00:03:24.200 --> 00:03:27.070
  • The first three chapters
  • 00:03:27.070 --> 00:03:28.250
  • of the Book of Revelation
  • 00:03:28.250 --> 00:03:30.130
  • describe seven churches,
  • 00:03:30.130 --> 00:03:33.080
  • and it is a picture,
  • 00:03:33.080 --> 00:03:34.220
  • and it gives the characteristics
  • 00:03:34.220 --> 00:03:36.220
  • of what the end-time church
  • 00:03:36.220 --> 00:03:39.070
  • is going to be like.
  • 00:03:39.070 --> 00:03:41.140
  • Seven stages of Christianity,
  • 00:03:41.140 --> 00:03:43.100
  • seven prophetic churches.
  • 00:03:43.230 --> 00:03:46.230
  • In most of those churches,
  • 00:03:46.230 --> 00:03:49.050
  • there's things that
  • 00:03:49.050 --> 00:03:49.270
  • Jesus Himself complements,
  • 00:03:50.220 --> 00:03:53.220
  • and there's things that
  • 00:03:53.220 --> 00:03:55.050
  • He confronts and combats.
  • 00:03:55.230 --> 00:03:58.230
  • He said, "Now,
  • 00:03:58.230 --> 00:04:01.240
  • in the church of Thyatira,
  • 00:04:01.290 --> 00:04:04.290
  • there is something
  • 00:04:04.290 --> 00:04:07.120
  • that you have done right,"
  • 00:04:07.120 --> 00:04:09.080
  • but then He shifts
  • 00:04:09.080 --> 00:04:10.100
  • the focus and He says,
  • 00:04:10.100 --> 00:04:11.220
  • "But I have something
  • 00:04:11.220 --> 00:04:12.170
  • against you,
  • 00:04:12.170 --> 00:04:14.020
  • because you're allowing Jezebel
  • 00:04:14.020 --> 00:04:16.270
  • to seduce and bring
  • 00:04:16.270 --> 00:04:18.090
  • sexual immorality
  • 00:04:18.090 --> 00:04:21.080
  • into the church,
  • 00:04:21.080 --> 00:04:23.040
  • and into people's lives."
  • 00:04:23.240 --> 00:04:26.240
  • Jezebel was a reference
  • 00:04:26.240 --> 00:04:29.240
  • that goes all the way back
  • 00:04:29.240 --> 00:04:31.020
  • to 1 Kings 18-19.
  • 00:04:31.020 --> 00:04:33.130
  • She was a woman
  • 00:04:33.130 --> 00:04:34.150
  • who married Ahab,
  • 00:04:34.150 --> 00:04:36.220
  • and she was exceedingly
  • 00:04:36.220 --> 00:04:38.070
  • wicked, and immoral,
  • 00:04:38.070 --> 00:04:40.230
  • and even though she had been
  • 00:04:40.230 --> 00:04:43.120
  • dead for over 1.500 years,
  • 00:04:44.020 --> 00:04:47.020
  • maybe up to 1.800 years
  • 00:04:47.020 --> 00:04:49.070
  • she had been dead,
  • 00:04:49.070 --> 00:04:50.260
  • her spirit was very much alive
  • 00:04:51.240 --> 00:04:54.240
  • in a new generation.
  • 00:04:54.240 --> 00:04:57.100
  • And notice what He said,
  • 00:04:57.100 --> 00:04:59.060
  • He said she had children.
  • 00:04:59.130 --> 00:05:02.150
  • Every generation,
  • 00:05:02.150 --> 00:05:04.050
  • the spirit of Jezebel
  • 00:05:04.050 --> 00:05:05.280
  • will produce children,
  • 00:05:06.030 --> 00:05:09.030
  • and these spirits,
  • 00:05:09.030 --> 00:05:10.260
  • if you entertain them,
  • 00:05:10.260 --> 00:05:12.090
  • if you shelter them,
  • 00:05:12.090 --> 00:05:14.060
  • if you feed them,
  • 00:05:14.060 --> 00:05:16.010
  • they will grow up.
  • 00:05:16.010 --> 00:05:17.180
  • And that's why He said
  • 00:05:17.180 --> 00:05:18.070
  • in Revelation 2:23:
  • 00:05:18.070 --> 00:05:19.200
  • "Her children have to die,"
  • 00:05:19.200 --> 00:05:22.190
  • -- you cannot --
  • 00:05:22.190 --> 00:05:23.230
  • notice what He tied 'em to.
  • 00:05:23.230 --> 00:05:25.100
  • You cannot allow them
  • 00:05:25.100 --> 00:05:26.240
  • to dominate your mind,
  • 00:05:26.240 --> 00:05:28.180
  • did you catch it?
  • 00:05:28.180 --> 00:05:29.120
  • They're after the reins
  • 00:05:29.120 --> 00:05:30.110
  • of your mind, and your heart,
  • 00:05:30.110 --> 00:05:32.080
  • to turn you away from God.
  • 00:05:32.080 --> 00:05:35.040
  • And they come as small things,
  • 00:05:35.040 --> 00:05:37.160
  • and if you feed them,
  • 00:05:37.160 --> 00:05:38.200
  • shelter them, feed lust,
  • 00:05:38.200 --> 00:05:41.060
  • shelter the characteristics
  • 00:05:41.060 --> 00:05:42.280
  • that I'm about to give you
  • 00:05:42.280 --> 00:05:44.070
  • concerning Jezebel,
  • 00:05:44.070 --> 00:05:45.180
  • they will take over your mind,
  • 00:05:45.180 --> 00:05:47.100
  • take over your heart,
  • 00:05:47.100 --> 00:05:48.180
  • and destroy your life
  • 00:05:48.180 --> 00:05:49.280
  • in every way.
  • 00:05:50.070 --> 00:05:53.070
  • Number one,
  • 00:05:53.070 --> 00:05:53.280
  • the spirit of Jezebel
  • 00:05:53.280 --> 00:05:55.100
  • is a spirit of manipulation.
  • 00:05:55.220 --> 00:05:58.220
  • She manipulated and wanted
  • 00:05:58.220 --> 00:06:01.000
  • to control Elijah, the prophet,
  • 00:06:01.000 --> 00:06:04.000
  • and Ahab, the king.
  • 00:06:04.000 --> 00:06:06.290
  • She absolutely even controlled,
  • 00:06:07.280 --> 00:06:10.280
  • like a puppet, everything
  • 00:06:10.280 --> 00:06:13.060
  • that she could control.
  • 00:06:13.060 --> 00:06:15.070
  • And it's -- I'm saying 'she',
  • 00:06:15.070 --> 00:06:17.170
  • but it's not about the gender,
  • 00:06:17.170 --> 00:06:20.100
  • it's about the spirit
  • 00:06:20.100 --> 00:06:21.190
  • that is very much alive
  • 00:06:21.190 --> 00:06:22.240
  • in our culture,
  • 00:06:22.240 --> 00:06:23.100
  • and you're gonna see it
  • 00:06:23.100 --> 00:06:24.030
  • in just a moment.
  • 00:06:24.030 --> 00:06:25.280
  • There's a difference between
  • 00:06:25.280 --> 00:06:27.140
  • manipulation and motivation.
  • 00:06:28.150 --> 00:06:31.150
  • When I motivate someone,
  • 00:06:31.150 --> 00:06:33.160
  • or when someone motivates,
  • 00:06:33.160 --> 00:06:35.020
  • it's for our good.
  • 00:06:35.020 --> 00:06:37.110
  • But when manipulation
  • 00:06:37.110 --> 00:06:39.010
  • is at work, it's for my good.
  • 00:06:39.110 --> 00:06:42.110
  • I'm manipulating somebody
  • 00:06:42.110 --> 00:06:44.000
  • not for our good,
  • 00:06:44.000 --> 00:06:45.140
  • but for my good.
  • 00:06:45.140 --> 00:06:47.170
  • And Jezebel tried
  • 00:06:47.170 --> 00:06:48.210
  • to manipulate leadership
  • 00:06:48.210 --> 00:06:51.060
  • for her good.
  • 00:06:51.060 --> 00:06:52.290
  • It's a spirit of control,
  • 00:06:52.290 --> 00:06:54.130
  • it's a spirit of manipulation.
  • 00:06:54.130 --> 00:06:57.040
  • Secondly, the spirit of Jezebel
  • 00:06:57.040 --> 00:06:59.120
  • is clearly seen
  • 00:06:59.120 --> 00:07:00.160
  • in the Old Testament
  • 00:07:00.160 --> 00:07:01.120
  • through this
  • 00:07:01.120 --> 00:07:01.210
  • real woman who lived,
  • 00:07:01.210 --> 00:07:03.130
  • and she was exceedingly wicked.
  • 00:07:03.130 --> 00:07:05.180
  • She was a married woman
  • 00:07:05.180 --> 00:07:07.010
  • with an unmarried spirit.
  • 00:07:07.180 --> 00:07:10.180
  • And one of the manifestations
  • 00:07:10.180 --> 00:07:12.030
  • of the spirit of Jezebel
  • 00:07:12.030 --> 00:07:14.040
  • is when you're married,
  • 00:07:14.040 --> 00:07:17.000
  • and you have a ceremony,
  • 00:07:18.160 --> 00:07:21.160
  • but you have
  • 00:07:21.160 --> 00:07:22.010
  • an unmarried spirit.
  • 00:07:22.010 --> 00:07:23.150
  • And a lot of people
  • 00:07:23.150 --> 00:07:24.040
  • don't realize that
  • 00:07:24.040 --> 00:07:25.230
  • they're operating
  • 00:07:25.230 --> 00:07:26.250
  • under a spirit of Jezebel,
  • 00:07:26.250 --> 00:07:29.020
  • but one of its manifestations
  • 00:07:29.020 --> 00:07:31.210
  • is even for married people,
  • 00:07:31.210 --> 00:07:33.230
  • when you're married,
  • 00:07:33.230 --> 00:07:35.070
  • but you have
  • 00:07:35.070 --> 00:07:36.010
  • an unmarried spirit.
  • 00:07:36.010 --> 00:07:37.200
  • I don't have to keep
  • 00:07:37.200 --> 00:07:38.100
  • my marriage vows,
  • 00:07:38.100 --> 00:07:39.110
  • I don't have to keep
  • 00:07:39.110 --> 00:07:40.080
  • my mind clean,
  • 00:07:40.080 --> 00:07:41.130
  • and my heart clean.
  • 00:07:41.130 --> 00:07:42.170
  • I don't -- many people today
  • 00:07:42.170 --> 00:07:45.030
  • are being affected
  • 00:07:45.030 --> 00:07:46.070
  • by the spirit of Jezebel;
  • 00:07:46.070 --> 00:07:47.270
  • They have an unmarried spirit.
  • 00:07:47.270 --> 00:07:50.150
  • It's a lustful spirit,
  • 00:07:50.150 --> 00:07:52.000
  • it's an unclean spirit,
  • 00:07:52.000 --> 00:07:53.190
  • it's an immoral spirit.
  • 00:07:53.190 --> 00:07:55.100
  • He even goes on to say,
  • 00:07:55.100 --> 00:07:56.230
  • "I gave her a space to repent
  • 00:07:56.230 --> 00:07:59.000
  • of her sexual immorality,
  • 00:07:59.000 --> 00:08:01.220
  • and she would not."
  • 00:08:02.140 --> 00:08:05.140
  • And notice what He said,
  • 00:08:05.140 --> 00:08:06.260
  • thirdly, about the manifestation
  • 00:08:06.260 --> 00:08:08.220
  • of this spirit.
  • 00:08:08.220 --> 00:08:10.070
  • She has children.
  • 00:08:10.070 --> 00:08:12.190
  • Why does He say
  • 00:08:12.190 --> 00:08:14.000
  • her children have to die?
  • 00:08:14.000 --> 00:08:16.210
  • Because you have to kill them
  • 00:08:16.210 --> 00:08:18.000
  • when they're young.
  • 00:08:18.000 --> 00:08:19.000
  • You have to stop this spirit
  • 00:08:19.000 --> 00:08:21.150
  • from operating in your life
  • 00:08:21.150 --> 00:08:23.010
  • in embryo stage,
  • 00:08:23.010 --> 00:08:24.240
  • because if you let it grow
  • 00:08:24.240 --> 00:08:26.090
  • and you feed it and shelter it
  • 00:08:26.090 --> 00:08:27.250
  • and take it in,
  • 00:08:27.250 --> 00:08:28.260
  • it will destroy and captivate
  • 00:08:28.260 --> 00:08:31.250
  • your mind and your heart,
  • 00:08:31.250 --> 00:08:33.210
  • and turn you away
  • 00:08:33.210 --> 00:08:35.060
  • from everything good
  • 00:08:35.060 --> 00:08:36.070
  • Don't let the children mature
  • 00:08:38.030 --> 00:08:41.030
  • spiritually that
  • 00:08:41.030 --> 00:08:41.270
  • she's preaching about.
  • 00:08:41.270 --> 00:08:43.060
  • The spirit of manipulation,
  • 00:08:43.060 --> 00:08:45.030
  • the spirit that does
  • 00:08:45.030 --> 00:08:47.120
  • not respect authority,
  • 00:08:47.120 --> 00:08:49.110
  • but it attacks authority,
  • 00:08:49.110 --> 00:08:51.100
  • and manipulates.
  • 00:08:51.100 --> 00:08:52.160
  • The spirit that is married,
  • 00:08:52.160 --> 00:08:55.030
  • but has an unmarried spirit.
  • 00:08:55.030 --> 00:08:56.210
  • It's unfaithful.
  • 00:08:56.210 --> 00:08:57.220
  • It doesn't keep covenant.
  • 00:08:57.220 --> 00:08:59.210
  • And she had children,
  • 00:08:59.210 --> 00:09:01.100
  • and He said,
  • 00:09:01.100 --> 00:09:02.010
  • "You have to understand
  • 00:09:02.010 --> 00:09:04.190
  • that you have to stop it.
  • 00:09:04.190 --> 00:09:06.270
  • Don't let it grow in your life,
  • 00:09:06.270 --> 00:09:09.130
  • don't feed it."
  • 00:09:09.130 --> 00:09:11.140
  • In recognizing those --
  • 00:09:11.140 --> 00:09:13.130
  • these characteristics, He said,
  • 00:09:13.130 --> 00:09:15.090
  • "I gave her a space
  • 00:09:15.090 --> 00:09:16.240
  • to repent of her, "
  • 00:09:16.240 --> 00:09:18.050
  • -- the King James says
  • 00:09:18.050 --> 00:09:19.090
  • fornication,
  • 00:09:19.090 --> 00:09:20.100
  • from which we get
  • 00:09:20.100 --> 00:09:21.060
  • the Greek word porneia,
  • 00:09:21.220 --> 00:09:24.220
  • from which the word
  • 00:09:24.220 --> 00:09:25.160
  • pornography comes from.
  • 00:09:25.160 --> 00:09:27.060
  • Now, I want you
  • 00:09:27.060 --> 00:09:27.230
  • to think about this.
  • 00:09:27.230 --> 00:09:29.060
  • Jesus said the end-time
  • 00:09:29.060 --> 00:09:31.110
  • predominant spirit --
  • 00:09:31.110 --> 00:09:33.180
  • before modern technology,
  • 00:09:33.180 --> 00:09:35.080
  • this was written
  • 00:09:35.080 --> 00:09:35.220
  • thousands of years ago,
  • 00:09:35.220 --> 00:09:37.020
  • and Jesus appeared
  • 00:09:37.020 --> 00:09:38.000
  • to John on the Isle of Patmos,
  • 00:09:38.000 --> 00:09:39.140
  • and He said,
  • 00:09:39.140 --> 00:09:40.040
  • "There's coming a spirit
  • 00:09:40.040 --> 00:09:41.070
  • against the end-time church,
  • 00:09:41.070 --> 00:09:43.180
  • and I'm gonna name it
  • 00:09:43.180 --> 00:09:44.260
  • pornography."
  • 00:09:44.260 --> 00:09:47.110
  • And that spirit
  • 00:09:47.110 --> 00:09:48.210
  • goes with the spirit
  • 00:09:48.210 --> 00:09:50.100
  • of Jezebel.
  • 00:09:50.100 --> 00:09:52.060
  • Pornography is the visualization
  • 00:09:52.060 --> 00:09:54.190
  • of something that is immoral.
  • 00:09:54.190 --> 00:09:56.170
  • It is lustful looking.
  • 00:09:56.170 --> 00:09:58.290
  • And the spirit of manipulation,
  • 00:09:58.290 --> 00:10:01.220
  • the spirit of lust
  • 00:10:01.220 --> 00:10:03.280
  • will run concurrent,
  • 00:10:03.280 --> 00:10:05.190
  • at the time that's happening
  • 00:10:05.190 --> 00:10:07.230
  • in society and culture,
  • 00:10:07.230 --> 00:10:09.260
  • the Bible says that God
  • 00:10:09.260 --> 00:10:11.140
  • is going to send --
  • 00:10:11.140 --> 00:10:12.230
  • this is a prophecy in Malachi,
  • 00:10:12.230 --> 00:10:14.190
  • He'll send
  • 00:10:14.190 --> 00:10:15.140
  • the spirit of Elijah.
  • 00:10:15.140 --> 00:10:17.020
  • Isn't that something?
  • 00:10:17.020 --> 00:10:18.000
  • Even though we're thousands
  • 00:10:18.000 --> 00:10:19.120
  • of years removed from
  • 00:10:19.120 --> 00:10:20.150
  • the story of 1 Kings 18-19,
  • 00:10:20.150 --> 00:10:23.090
  • of the confrontation of Elijah
  • 00:10:23.090 --> 00:10:25.070
  • and Jezebel and Ahab, God says,
  • 00:10:25.070 --> 00:10:27.200
  • "It's going to be rebirthed,
  • 00:10:27.200 --> 00:10:30.050
  • and it'll have children
  • 00:10:30.050 --> 00:10:31.130
  • that will move from
  • 00:10:31.130 --> 00:10:32.020
  • generation to generation."
  • 00:10:32.020 --> 00:10:33.220
  • And when you see the spirit
  • 00:10:33.220 --> 00:10:35.030
  • of Jezebel manifesting, He said,
  • 00:10:35.030 --> 00:10:37.230
  • "I'm going to send on
  • 00:10:37.230 --> 00:10:38.290
  • My church and My people
  • 00:10:38.290 --> 00:10:40.230
  • the spirit of Elijah
  • 00:10:40.230 --> 00:10:42.020
  • to deal with it."
  • 00:10:42.020 --> 00:10:44.200
  • It's really something.
  • 00:10:44.200 --> 00:10:46.010
  • Let me show you another
  • 00:10:49.050 --> 00:10:49.270
  • characteristic of how
  • 00:10:51.110 --> 00:10:54.110
  • the signals that the spirit
  • 00:10:54.110 --> 00:10:56.010
  • of Jezebel puts out.
  • 00:10:56.010 --> 00:10:57.110
  • It's a signal of lust.
  • 00:10:58.010 --> 00:11:01.030
  • It's a signal
  • 00:11:01.030 --> 00:11:02.120
  • of prayerlessness.
  • 00:11:02.120 --> 00:11:05.050
  • It's just like a tower,
  • 00:11:05.050 --> 00:11:06.160
  • putting out a signal.
  • 00:11:06.160 --> 00:11:07.240
  • It's always beaming out
  • 00:11:07.240 --> 00:11:09.210
  • and broadcasting.
  • 00:11:09.210 --> 00:11:10.290
  • Notice this about Elijah,
  • 00:11:10.290 --> 00:11:13.000
  • a signal of depression.
  • 00:11:13.000 --> 00:11:15.090
  • Because the Bible said --
  • 00:11:15.090 --> 00:11:16.100
  • follow this in 1 Kings 19,
  • 00:11:16.100 --> 00:11:18.220
  • that when Jezebel turned her
  • 00:11:18.220 --> 00:11:20.280
  • attention to the prophet Elijah,
  • 00:11:20.280 --> 00:11:23.000
  • she threatened him,
  • 00:11:23.000 --> 00:11:25.130
  • and when she threatened him,
  • 00:11:25.130 --> 00:11:27.040
  • he became fearful,
  • 00:11:27.040 --> 00:11:29.010
  • he became discouraged,
  • 00:11:29.010 --> 00:11:30.200
  • he became depressed.
  • 00:11:30.200 --> 00:11:32.150
  • The Bible said in
  • 00:11:32.150 --> 00:11:35.120
  • 1 Kings 19:2-3,
  • 00:11:35.120 --> 00:11:36.020
  • he ran to a tree
  • 00:11:36.020 --> 00:11:37.290
  • and sat under it,
  • 00:11:37.290 --> 00:11:39.020
  • and begged God to die.
  • 00:11:39.020 --> 00:11:41.050
  • He had just called down
  • 00:11:41.050 --> 00:11:42.120
  • fire from heaven.
  • 00:11:42.120 --> 00:11:43.150
  • But it said Jezebel
  • 00:11:43.150 --> 00:11:45.070
  • sent a threat to him,
  • 00:11:45.070 --> 00:11:46.240
  • and when she started
  • 00:11:46.240 --> 00:11:48.080
  • broadcasting her spirit,
  • 00:11:48.080 --> 00:11:50.210
  • notice what it affected,
  • 00:11:50.210 --> 00:11:52.040
  • it affected his emotions,
  • 00:11:52.040 --> 00:11:54.160
  • and he said, "It's enough.
  • 00:11:54.160 --> 00:11:55.200
  • I give up.
  • 00:11:55.200 --> 00:11:56.120
  • Take my life, for I am no,"
  • 00:11:56.120 --> 00:11:59.000
  • -- he said, "I wanna die.
  • 00:11:59.000 --> 00:12:00.150
  • I want You to kill me.
  • 00:12:00.150 --> 00:12:02.010
  • So what I'm saying
  • 00:12:07.140 --> 00:12:08.060
  • to you is this.
  • 00:12:09.140 --> 00:12:12.140
  • There are four areas
  • 00:12:12.140 --> 00:12:15.100
  • that if you open the door
  • 00:12:15.100 --> 00:12:16.230
  • to Jezebel's children,
  • 00:12:16.230 --> 00:12:18.090
  • they come in as small things,
  • 00:12:18.090 --> 00:12:20.020
  • in embryo stage,
  • 00:12:20.020 --> 00:12:21.220
  • and they come in,
  • 00:12:21.220 --> 00:12:22.160
  • and if you open the door,
  • 00:12:22.160 --> 00:12:25.100
  • and you feed them,
  • 00:12:25.100 --> 00:12:27.250
  • those -- Jezebel's children
  • 00:12:27.250 --> 00:12:29.200
  • begin to affect --
  • 00:12:29.200 --> 00:12:30.170
  • notice what Revelation 2:23
  • 00:12:30.170 --> 00:12:33.080
  • said, your mind
  • 00:12:33.080 --> 00:12:35.000
  • and your heart.
  • 00:12:35.000 --> 00:12:35.270
  • That's what the enemy's after.
  • 00:12:35.270 --> 00:12:38.000
  • And here's the --
  • 00:12:38.000 --> 00:12:38.200
  • Jezebel works with
  • 00:12:38.200 --> 00:12:40.000
  • these four areas:
  • 00:12:40.000 --> 00:12:41.110
  • lust, fear, discouragement
  • 00:12:44.120 --> 00:12:47.120
  • -- I feel like giving up.
  • 00:12:47.120 --> 00:12:49.170
  • I feel like quitting.
  • 00:12:49.190 --> 00:12:52.190
  • I just wanna give everything up.
  • 00:12:53.200 --> 00:12:56.200
  • What is that?
  • 00:12:56.200 --> 00:12:57.120
  • That's the spirit of Jezebel.
  • 00:12:57.120 --> 00:12:59.070
  • Lust, fear, tormenting fear.
  • 00:13:00.150 --> 00:13:03.150
  • What's gonna happen?
  • 00:13:03.150 --> 00:13:04.070
  • Something bad's gonna happen.
  • 00:13:04.070 --> 00:13:05.160
  • I'm expecting --
  • 00:13:05.160 --> 00:13:06.050
  • and you walk in fear.
  • 00:13:06.050 --> 00:13:08.060
  • This is the end-time spirit
  • 00:13:08.060 --> 00:13:10.040
  • Jesus said would come,
  • 00:13:10.040 --> 00:13:11.110
  • because all --
  • 00:13:11.110 --> 00:13:12.000
  • this is the effect,
  • 00:13:12.000 --> 00:13:13.040
  • when you read the story
  • 00:13:13.040 --> 00:13:14.000
  • of what Jezebel --
  • 00:13:14.000 --> 00:13:15.140
  • the effect she had on Elijah,
  • 00:13:15.140 --> 00:13:16.260
  • he -- she had lust,
  • 00:13:16.260 --> 00:13:19.230
  • that's very easy to see,
  • 00:13:19.230 --> 00:13:21.170
  • but her signal that hit
  • 00:13:21.170 --> 00:13:23.060
  • the prophet was fear,
  • 00:13:23.060 --> 00:13:26.060
  • discouragement.
  • 00:13:26.060 --> 00:13:27.210
  • Went and sat under a tree,
  • 00:13:27.210 --> 00:13:29.100
  • and prayed to die.
  • 00:13:29.100 --> 00:13:30.180
  • That's called depression.
  • 00:13:30.180 --> 00:13:33.170
  • And there are people
  • 00:13:33.170 --> 00:13:34.160
  • by the millions
  • 00:13:34.160 --> 00:13:35.080
  • who are listening to me
  • 00:13:35.080 --> 00:13:35.270
  • by television,
  • 00:13:35.270 --> 00:13:37.020
  • who are listening to me
  • 00:13:37.020 --> 00:13:38.050
  • in this room,
  • 00:13:38.050 --> 00:13:39.020
  • and at all of our campuses,
  • 00:13:39.020 --> 00:13:40.210
  • and there are four areas
  • 00:13:40.210 --> 00:13:42.060
  • the enemy is working on you.
  • 00:13:42.060 --> 00:13:43.250
  • I'm telling you,
  • 00:13:43.250 --> 00:13:44.220
  • I've never seen it
  • 00:13:44.220 --> 00:13:45.160
  • in a generation.
  • 00:13:45.160 --> 00:13:46.160
  • This is why I'm preaching this.
  • 00:13:46.160 --> 00:13:48.010
  • God would not let me
  • 00:13:48.010 --> 00:13:48.220
  • come off of this.
  • 00:13:48.220 --> 00:13:50.020
  • He said, "This is a word
  • 00:13:50.020 --> 00:13:51.150
  • in season."
  • 00:13:51.150 --> 00:13:52.050
  • He said,
  • 00:13:52.050 --> 00:13:53.020
  • "There are four spirits
  • 00:13:53.020 --> 00:13:54.140
  • that have been released.
  • 00:13:54.140 --> 00:13:55.190
  • They all are Jezebel working
  • 00:13:55.190 --> 00:13:57.250
  • through these four areas."
  • 00:13:57.250 --> 00:13:59.120
  • Lust, fear, discouragement,
  • 00:14:02.050 --> 00:14:05.050
  • and depression.
  • 00:14:06.220 --> 00:14:09.220
  • And if you don't watch it,
  • 00:14:09.220 --> 00:14:11.120
  • you will pick up --
  • 00:14:11.120 --> 00:14:12.280
  • when you entertain
  • 00:14:12.280 --> 00:14:14.080
  • the children of Jezebel,
  • 00:14:14.080 --> 00:14:15.250
  • when you don't kill them,
  • 00:14:15.250 --> 00:14:17.110
  • when you don't stop them
  • 00:14:17.110 --> 00:14:18.140
  • in the embryonic stage,
  • 00:14:18.140 --> 00:14:19.270
  • when you don't say,
  • 00:14:19.270 --> 00:14:20.240
  • "No, I resist that,"
  • 00:14:20.240 --> 00:14:22.160
  • "No, I'm not feeding that,
  • 00:14:22.160 --> 00:14:24.000
  • I'm not giving that."
  • 00:14:24.000 --> 00:14:26.180
  • And let me show you
  • 00:14:26.180 --> 00:14:27.100
  • something astonishing.
  • 00:14:27.100 --> 00:14:29.060
  • John the Baptist --
  • 00:14:29.060 --> 00:14:31.140
  • I wanna prove to you
  • 00:14:31.140 --> 00:14:33.020
  • that Jezebel has children.
  • 00:14:33.020 --> 00:14:35.090
  • Your Bible said that
  • 00:14:35.090 --> 00:14:36.240
  • John the Baptist
  • 00:14:36.240 --> 00:14:38.170
  • came in the spirit of Elijah.
  • 00:14:39.020 --> 00:14:42.020
  • That's a remarkable thing.
  • 00:14:42.040 --> 00:14:45.040
  • He came in the spirit of Elijah.
  • 00:14:47.270 --> 00:14:50.270
  • And I want you
  • 00:14:50.270 --> 00:14:51.130
  • to see what happened.
  • 00:14:51.130 --> 00:14:52.200
  • He came in the spirit of Elijah,
  • 00:14:52.200 --> 00:14:54.260
  • he's the forerunner of Christ,
  • 00:14:54.260 --> 00:14:56.180
  • and when he comes
  • 00:14:56.180 --> 00:14:57.160
  • in the spirit of Elijah,
  • 00:14:57.160 --> 00:15:00.120
  • what happens?
  • 00:15:00.120 --> 00:15:01.140
  • The children of Jezebel
  • 00:15:01.140 --> 00:15:02.290
  • attack him.
  • 00:15:02.290 --> 00:15:03.230
  • What do you mean?
  • 00:15:03.230 --> 00:15:04.240
  • The Bible said that Herod
  • 00:15:04.240 --> 00:15:07.020
  • the Great had married
  • 00:15:07.020 --> 00:15:08.180
  • his brother's wife.
  • 00:15:08.180 --> 00:15:10.110
  • He was living in adultery,
  • 00:15:10.110 --> 00:15:12.110
  • and John the Baptist attacked
  • 00:15:12.110 --> 00:15:14.280
  • that immoral, sexual spirit,
  • 00:15:15.030 --> 00:15:18.030
  • and rebuked the king openly,
  • 00:15:18.030 --> 00:15:20.190
  • and when he did,
  • 00:15:20.190 --> 00:15:21.260
  • the king had him thrown
  • 00:15:21.260 --> 00:15:23.200
  • into a prison.
  • 00:15:23.200 --> 00:15:24.240
  • Watch this.
  • 00:15:24.240 --> 00:15:26.100
  • And the king's wife
  • 00:15:26.100 --> 00:15:28.160
  • was so embarrassed
  • 00:15:28.160 --> 00:15:30.100
  • at him calling out
  • 00:15:30.100 --> 00:15:31.200
  • her sexual immorality
  • 00:15:31.200 --> 00:15:33.260
  • that she came
  • 00:15:33.260 --> 00:15:34.240
  • and conspired up a plan.
  • 00:15:34.240 --> 00:15:37.020
  • She took her own daughter,
  • 00:15:37.020 --> 00:15:38.290
  • younger daughter,
  • 00:15:38.290 --> 00:15:40.150
  • and got the king to throw
  • 00:15:40.150 --> 00:15:42.040
  • a banquet and a wild party,
  • 00:15:42.040 --> 00:15:44.040
  • and they had her come out
  • 00:15:44.040 --> 00:15:46.030
  • and dance, a lewd dance.
  • 00:15:46.030 --> 00:15:49.010
  • It was so sexual,
  • 00:15:49.010 --> 00:15:50.150
  • it was so sensual,
  • 00:15:50.150 --> 00:15:52.000
  • I don't know what
  • 00:15:52.000 --> 00:15:52.250
  • moves she was doing,
  • 00:15:52.250 --> 00:15:54.090
  • I don't know what --
  • 00:15:54.090 --> 00:15:56.040
  • how she was doing it.
  • 00:15:56.040 --> 00:15:57.220
  • I don't wanna know.
  • 00:15:57.220 --> 00:15:58.260
  • Let's keep this clean,
  • 00:15:58.260 --> 00:15:59.280
  • come on now.
  • 00:15:59.280 --> 00:16:02.080
  • But, folks,
  • 00:16:02.080 --> 00:16:03.000
  • this is a Bible story
  • 00:16:03.000 --> 00:16:04.110
  • in your Bible.
  • 00:16:04.110 --> 00:16:05.240
  • When she danced,
  • 00:16:05.240 --> 00:16:07.040
  • the demon of Jezebel
  • 00:16:07.040 --> 00:16:09.130
  • came on her so strong
  • 00:16:09.130 --> 00:16:11.110
  • that the king said,
  • 00:16:11.110 --> 00:16:12.290
  • "Whatever you want, "
  • 00:16:12.290 --> 00:16:14.100
  • after she danced,
  • 00:16:14.100 --> 00:16:15.110
  • up to half the kingdom,
  • 00:16:15.110 --> 00:16:16.220
  • "I'm gonna give it to you."
  • 00:16:16.220 --> 00:16:18.000
  • Now, watch,
  • 00:16:18.000 --> 00:16:18.110
  • and the Bible said she went
  • 00:16:18.110 --> 00:16:19.200
  • back to her mother.
  • 00:16:19.200 --> 00:16:21.010
  • She didn't say,
  • 00:16:21.010 --> 00:16:21.200
  • "I'll take a palace,
  • 00:16:21.200 --> 00:16:22.160
  • I'll take a chariot,
  • 00:16:22.160 --> 00:16:24.100
  • Mercedes-Benz chariot.
  • 00:16:24.100 --> 00:16:25.240
  • I'll take this,
  • 00:16:25.240 --> 00:16:26.180
  • I'll take that."
  • 00:16:26.180 --> 00:16:27.200
  • She went back to her mother.
  • 00:16:27.200 --> 00:16:30.050
  • This is the spirit of Jezebel.
  • 00:16:30.050 --> 00:16:31.250
  • And said,
  • 00:16:31.250 --> 00:16:32.090
  • "What should I ask for?"
  • 00:16:32.090 --> 00:16:33.140
  • And her mother said,
  • 00:16:33.140 --> 00:16:34.270
  • "You ask for the head, "
  • 00:16:36.050 --> 00:16:39.050
  • because Jezebel
  • 00:16:39.050 --> 00:16:40.200
  • hates the prophet.
  • 00:16:40.200 --> 00:16:41.250
  • Jezebel hates the ministry.
  • 00:16:41.250 --> 00:16:44.040
  • Jezebel hates the seed.
  • 00:16:44.040 --> 00:16:46.160
  • The Bible said that
  • 00:16:46.160 --> 00:16:47.130
  • she slaughtered,
  • 00:16:47.130 --> 00:16:48.160
  • Jezebel slaughtered,
  • 00:16:48.160 --> 00:16:50.050
  • every prophet and their children
  • 00:16:50.050 --> 00:16:52.120
  • and their family.
  • 00:16:52.120 --> 00:16:53.110
  • This is the spirit
  • 00:16:53.110 --> 00:16:54.130
  • we're dealing with.
  • 00:16:54.130 --> 00:16:55.090
  • It's coming -- you need
  • 00:16:55.090 --> 00:16:56.120
  • to pray for your leaders,
  • 00:16:56.120 --> 00:16:57.200
  • we need to pray
  • 00:16:57.200 --> 00:16:58.110
  • for spiritual leaders,
  • 00:16:58.110 --> 00:16:59.290
  • because if the enemy
  • 00:16:59.290 --> 00:17:00.280
  • can't get the pastor,
  • 00:17:00.280 --> 00:17:02.090
  • he'll go after his wife,
  • 00:17:02.090 --> 00:17:03.150
  • he'll go after his children,
  • 00:17:03.150 --> 00:17:04.230
  • he'll go after
  • 00:17:04.230 --> 00:17:05.050
  • his grandchildren.
  • 00:17:05.050 --> 00:17:06.120
  • We wrestle not against
  • 00:17:06.120 --> 00:17:08.110
  • flesh and blood.
  • 00:17:08.110 --> 00:17:09.220
  • And it's the spirit of lust,
  • 00:17:09.220 --> 00:17:11.190
  • it's the spirit of fear,
  • 00:17:11.190 --> 00:17:13.170
  • it's the spirit
  • 00:17:13.170 --> 00:17:14.020
  • of discouragement,
  • 00:17:14.020 --> 00:17:15.110
  • it's the spirit of depression,
  • 00:17:15.110 --> 00:17:17.180
  • and it's trying its best
  • 00:17:17.180 --> 00:17:19.080
  • to get in every home
  • 00:17:19.080 --> 00:17:20.180
  • that I'm preaching to today.
  • 00:17:20.180 --> 00:17:22.150
  • Every home.
  • 00:17:22.150 --> 00:17:23.110
  • No exceptions.
  • 00:17:24.250 --> 00:17:27.250
  • The Bible said in Revelation 12
  • 00:17:27.250 --> 00:17:30.030
  • that the serpent
  • 00:17:30.030 --> 00:17:31.070
  • opened his mouth,
  • 00:17:31.070 --> 00:17:32.140
  • and out of his mouth
  • 00:17:32.140 --> 00:17:34.000
  • poured forth filth, water,
  • 00:17:34.150 --> 00:17:37.150
  • symbolic of words
  • 00:17:37.150 --> 00:17:38.280
  • and sexual images,
  • 00:17:38.280 --> 00:17:41.020
  • and in our society,
  • 00:17:41.020 --> 00:17:42.030
  • with the advancement
  • 00:17:42.030 --> 00:17:43.000
  • of technology,
  • 00:17:43.000 --> 00:17:45.020
  • notice what Satan is after,
  • 00:17:45.020 --> 00:17:47.010
  • the mind and the heart
  • 00:17:47.010 --> 00:17:49.090
  • are more vulnerable
  • 00:17:49.090 --> 00:17:50.140
  • than they've ever been
  • 00:17:50.140 --> 00:17:51.260
  • in human history.
  • 00:17:52.020 --> 00:17:55.020
  • Script writers and producers
  • 00:17:55.020 --> 00:17:57.040
  • and artists, they don't
  • 00:17:57.040 --> 00:17:58.270
  • even know they're
  • 00:17:58.270 --> 00:17:59.240
  • being manipulated
  • 00:17:59.240 --> 00:18:01.050
  • by the spirit of lust
  • 00:18:01.050 --> 00:18:02.210
  • that brings fear
  • 00:18:02.210 --> 00:18:03.200
  • to a generation,
  • 00:18:03.200 --> 00:18:04.240
  • that brings discouragement
  • 00:18:04.240 --> 00:18:05.180
  • to a generation,
  • 00:18:05.180 --> 00:18:06.190
  • that brings depression
  • 00:18:06.190 --> 00:18:07.250
  • and suicide and opioids
  • 00:18:07.250 --> 00:18:09.060
  • and hopelessness and kids --
  • 00:18:09.060 --> 00:18:11.210
  • so many movie stars
  • 00:18:11.210 --> 00:18:13.210
  • and people who have everything,
  • 00:18:13.210 --> 00:18:15.100
  • they open the door,
  • 00:18:15.100 --> 00:18:16.150
  • and they think they
  • 00:18:16.150 --> 00:18:17.030
  • can control it,
  • 00:18:17.030 --> 00:18:18.000
  • but it takes 'em with fear
  • 00:18:18.000 --> 00:18:19.180
  • and discouragement
  • 00:18:19.180 --> 00:18:20.180
  • and ultimately depression,
  • 00:18:20.180 --> 00:18:22.020
  • and they take their lives.
  • 00:18:22.140 --> 00:18:25.140
  • It's Jezebel.
  • 00:18:25.140 --> 00:18:28.030
  • And I'm not for doing away
  • 00:18:28.030 --> 00:18:29.100
  • with internet,
  • 00:18:29.100 --> 00:18:30.030
  • God's using the internet.
  • 00:18:30.030 --> 00:18:31.220
  • Here's the point.
  • 00:18:31.220 --> 00:18:32.250
  • We have to have the conviction
  • 00:18:32.250 --> 00:18:34.090
  • of access without entry
  • 00:18:34.090 --> 00:18:36.120
  • to some things on the internet.
  • 00:18:37.000 --> 00:18:40.000
  • What do you mean?
  • 00:18:40.000 --> 00:18:41.180
  • Why did God put the tree
  • 00:18:41.180 --> 00:18:42.270
  • of good and evil in the Garden?
  • 00:18:43.030 --> 00:18:46.030
  • Why didn't He just put the tree
  • 00:18:46.030 --> 00:18:47.140
  • of good and put a prison wall
  • 00:18:47.160 --> 00:18:50.160
  • with an electric fence
  • 00:18:50.160 --> 00:18:51.250
  • around the evil?
  • 00:18:51.250 --> 00:18:54.140
  • I'm gonna tell you why.
  • 00:18:54.140 --> 00:18:56.050
  • Because God wanted us
  • 00:18:56.050 --> 00:18:57.060
  • to have access without entry.
  • 00:18:57.060 --> 00:18:59.210
  • He wanted us to choose.
  • 00:18:59.210 --> 00:19:01.120
  • Sometimes, you're confronted
  • 00:19:01.120 --> 00:19:02.210
  • with nothing but
  • 00:19:02.210 --> 00:19:03.140
  • your personal conscience
  • 00:19:03.140 --> 00:19:04.280
  • and your personal convictions,
  • 00:19:04.280 --> 00:19:06.200
  • and you -- in that moment,
  • 00:19:06.200 --> 00:19:08.040
  • when it's just you and God,
  • 00:19:08.040 --> 00:19:09.200
  • you have to have something
  • 00:19:09.200 --> 00:19:11.280
  • that says, "My mind, my heart,
  • 00:19:11.280 --> 00:19:14.040
  • belongs to Jesus,
  • 00:19:14.040 --> 00:19:15.180
  • and I have access,
  • 00:19:15.180 --> 00:19:16.290
  • I have access,
  • 00:19:20.160 --> 00:19:21.090
  • but I will not have entry.
  • 00:19:21.090 --> 00:19:22.210
  • Evil is there,
  • 00:19:22.210 --> 00:19:23.220
  • and good is there,
  • 00:19:23.220 --> 00:19:24.290
  • and by the grace of God
  • 00:19:24.290 --> 00:19:26.270
  • and by a guarded spirit,
  • 00:19:26.270 --> 00:19:29.100
  • I recognize, I'm not just
  • 00:19:29.100 --> 00:19:31.040
  • dealing with something.
  • 00:19:31.040 --> 00:19:32.190
  • This is a spirit.
  • 00:19:33.290 --> 00:19:36.290
  • Jezebel's kids
  • 00:19:36.290 --> 00:19:38.070
  • are being spawned.
  • 00:19:38.130 --> 00:19:41.130
  • And the only answer
  • 00:19:41.130 --> 00:19:44.050
  • is when you see
  • 00:19:44.050 --> 00:19:45.080
  • this spirit manifesting.
  • 00:19:45.080 --> 00:19:48.050
  • He said, "I'm gonna spend --
  • 00:19:48.050 --> 00:19:49.120
  • I'm gonna send
  • 00:19:49.120 --> 00:19:49.280
  • the spirit of Elijah."
  • 00:19:49.280 --> 00:19:52.060
  • Just like it came on John,
  • 00:19:52.060 --> 00:19:53.250
  • right before
  • 00:19:53.250 --> 00:19:54.180
  • the coming of Messiah,
  • 00:19:54.180 --> 00:19:56.070
  • just before the end-time church,
  • 00:19:56.110 --> 00:19:59.110
  • when it begins to see
  • 00:19:59.110 --> 00:20:01.040
  • the spirit of lust,
  • 00:20:01.040 --> 00:20:02.100
  • the spirit of fear,
  • 00:20:02.100 --> 00:20:03.170
  • the spirit of discouragement,
  • 00:20:03.170 --> 00:20:05.030
  • the spirit of depression
  • 00:20:05.030 --> 00:20:06.150
  • taking over a culture,
  • 00:20:06.150 --> 00:20:08.230
  • pouring in,
  • 00:20:08.230 --> 00:20:09.180
  • spewing out like a river
  • 00:20:09.180 --> 00:20:11.290
  • through the modern
  • 00:20:11.290 --> 00:20:13.260
  • technologies, every movie,
  • 00:20:13.260 --> 00:20:16.090
  • every T.V. show.
  • 00:20:16.090 --> 00:20:18.020
  • Everything from every direction.
  • 00:20:18.020 --> 00:20:20.070
  • "When you see that happening,
  • 00:20:20.070 --> 00:20:22.020
  • know that I will not
  • 00:20:22.020 --> 00:20:23.230
  • let it go unanswered.
  • 00:20:23.230 --> 00:20:25.050
  • I'm sending the spirit
  • 00:20:25.050 --> 00:20:26.200
  • of Elijah on My church."
  • 00:20:26.200 --> 00:20:29.180
  • Now, let me tell you
  • 00:20:29.180 --> 00:20:30.070
  • what happened to Jezebel
  • 00:20:30.070 --> 00:20:31.140
  • in closing.
  • 00:20:31.140 --> 00:20:33.120
  • It's an amazing story,
  • 00:20:33.120 --> 00:20:35.030
  • in 2 Kings 9.
  • 00:20:35.220 --> 00:20:38.220
  • God never used Elijah again.
  • 00:20:38.220 --> 00:20:40.280
  • He said,
  • 00:20:40.280 --> 00:20:41.120
  • "Just go anoint Elisha.
  • 00:20:41.120 --> 00:20:43.270
  • You're done.
  • 00:20:43.270 --> 00:20:45.250
  • You let Jezebel defeat you,
  • 00:20:47.250 --> 00:20:50.250
  • and you'll never perform
  • 00:20:50.250 --> 00:20:51.200
  • another miracle.
  • 00:20:51.200 --> 00:20:52.150
  • Just go pour and throw
  • 00:20:52.150 --> 00:20:53.280
  • your mantle on
  • 00:20:53.280 --> 00:20:55.100
  • the next generation."
  • 00:20:55.100 --> 00:20:57.290
  • And Elijah anointed a guy
  • 00:20:57.290 --> 00:20:59.220
  • by the name of Jehu.
  • 00:20:59.220 --> 00:21:01.210
  • Now, watch this.
  • 00:21:01.210 --> 00:21:03.080
  • And the Spirit of the Lord
  • 00:21:03.080 --> 00:21:04.130
  • came on Jehu,
  • 00:21:04.130 --> 00:21:06.100
  • and he rode in
  • 00:21:06.100 --> 00:21:07.080
  • the capital city,
  • 00:21:07.080 --> 00:21:10.010
  • rode right up to the palace
  • 00:21:10.010 --> 00:21:11.240
  • where Jezebel was living.
  • 00:21:11.240 --> 00:21:14.080
  • And the Bible said she walked
  • 00:21:14.080 --> 00:21:15.260
  • out on her balcony,
  • 00:21:15.260 --> 00:21:17.110
  • and was painting her face.
  • 00:21:20.070 --> 00:21:23.070
  • And when he pulled up
  • 00:21:23.070 --> 00:21:25.080
  • on his horse,
  • 00:21:25.080 --> 00:21:27.240
  • the Bible said she was
  • 00:21:27.240 --> 00:21:29.010
  • surrounded with three eunuchs.
  • 00:21:29.010 --> 00:21:31.260
  • Eunuchs were men who had been
  • 00:21:31.260 --> 00:21:33.040
  • castrated by the king,
  • 00:21:33.040 --> 00:21:36.020
  • so that he could know that
  • 00:21:36.020 --> 00:21:37.200
  • they would not flirt
  • 00:21:37.200 --> 00:21:38.230
  • with his bride.
  • 00:21:38.230 --> 00:21:41.120
  • I don't know any other way
  • 00:21:41.120 --> 00:21:42.040
  • to say it.
  • 00:21:42.040 --> 00:21:42.150
  • In other words,
  • 00:21:42.150 --> 00:21:43.200
  • the closer you --
  • 00:21:43.200 --> 00:21:44.190
  • listen, listen, listen, listen.
  • 00:21:44.190 --> 00:21:46.100
  • The closer you get to Jezebel,
  • 00:21:47.090 --> 00:21:50.090
  • she will produce in your life
  • 00:21:50.090 --> 00:21:52.020
  • a non-productive spirit,
  • 00:21:53.090 --> 00:21:56.090
  • a non --
  • 00:21:56.090 --> 00:21:57.020
  • an anti-revival spirit,
  • 00:21:57.260 --> 00:22:00.280
  • so that you cannot produce
  • 00:22:02.190 --> 00:22:05.190
  • like you were
  • 00:22:05.190 --> 00:22:06.020
  • supposed to produce,
  • 00:22:06.020 --> 00:22:08.240
  • and touch generations,
  • 00:22:08.240 --> 00:22:11.150
  • because you made
  • 00:22:11.150 --> 00:22:12.160
  • an affinity with Jezebel,
  • 00:22:12.160 --> 00:22:15.040
  • and she takes your power
  • 00:22:15.040 --> 00:22:17.230
  • to produce.
  • 00:22:17.230 --> 00:22:19.080
  • She's an anti-revival spirit,
  • 00:22:19.080 --> 00:22:21.230
  • but when a man with a new --
  • 00:22:21.230 --> 00:22:24.010
  • under a new generation,
  • 00:22:24.010 --> 00:22:25.200
  • with a new anointing, who said,
  • 00:22:25.200 --> 00:22:27.160
  • "I don't care what society says,
  • 00:22:29.060 --> 00:22:32.060
  • I'm confronting the spirit, "
  • 00:22:32.060 --> 00:22:34.000
  • -- he rode up to her window.
  • 00:22:34.000 --> 00:22:35.210
  • She looked out the balcony,
  • 00:22:35.210 --> 00:22:37.150
  • and thought,
  • 00:22:37.150 --> 00:22:38.040
  • who do you think you are?
  • 00:22:38.040 --> 00:22:39.180
  • And he asked a question
  • 00:22:39.180 --> 00:22:41.050
  • to the three eunuchs.
  • 00:22:41.050 --> 00:22:42.140
  • He said, "Who's on
  • 00:22:42.140 --> 00:22:43.180
  • the Lord's side?"
  • 00:22:44.000 --> 00:22:47.000
  • And those three men
  • 00:22:47.000 --> 00:22:48.240
  • who were powerless,
  • 00:22:48.240 --> 00:22:50.070
  • looked at each other,
  • 00:22:50.070 --> 00:22:51.160
  • and suddenly,
  • 00:22:51.160 --> 00:22:52.140
  • they picked Jezebel up,
  • 00:22:52.140 --> 00:22:55.120
  • threw her off the balcony.
  • 00:22:55.120 --> 00:22:57.260
  • She -- listen to this.
  • 00:22:57.260 --> 00:22:59.100
  • Listen to this.
  • 00:22:59.100 --> 00:23:00.210
  • She hit the ground
  • 00:23:00.210 --> 00:23:02.090
  • and the Bible said her blood
  • 00:23:02.090 --> 00:23:04.200
  • splattered on the wall,
  • 00:23:04.200 --> 00:23:06.190
  • on the horses, and he, who?
  • 00:23:06.190 --> 00:23:09.110
  • Jehu, trampled her blood
  • 00:23:10.010 --> 00:23:13.010
  • under his feet.
  • 00:23:13.110 --> 00:23:16.110
  • And when I read that this
  • 00:23:16.110 --> 00:23:17.070
  • morning, I said, "Lord,
  • 00:23:17.070 --> 00:23:18.250
  • I want that to happen to fear,
  • 00:23:18.250 --> 00:23:20.280
  • I want that to happen
  • 00:23:20.280 --> 00:23:22.040
  • to the spirit of discouragement,
  • 00:23:22.040 --> 00:23:24.030
  • I want depression to be
  • 00:23:24.030 --> 00:23:25.220
  • trampled under our feet.
  • 00:23:25.220 --> 00:23:27.130
  • I want the blood of lust
  • 00:23:27.130 --> 00:23:29.280
  • and sexual immorality
  • 00:23:29.280 --> 00:23:31.110
  • to be trampled under our feet."
  • 00:23:31.110 --> 00:23:33.160
  • We are not playing games.
  • 00:23:33.160 --> 00:23:35.230
  • Messiah is coming,
  • 00:23:35.230 --> 00:23:37.200
  • the spirit of Elijah,
  • 00:23:37.200 --> 00:23:39.130
  • the spirit of Jezebel,
  • 00:23:39.130 --> 00:23:41.010
  • just like the scripture said,
  • 00:23:41.010 --> 00:23:42.290
  • is lining up,
  • 00:23:42.290 --> 00:23:44.040
  • and who's on the Lord's side?
  • 00:23:44.150 --> 00:23:47.150
  • That's the question.
  • 00:23:47.150 --> 00:23:49.030
  • Who's gonna be like Jesus?
  • 00:23:49.070 --> 00:23:52.070
  • The more wicked,
  • 00:23:52.070 --> 00:23:53.160
  • the more perverse,
  • 00:23:53.160 --> 00:23:55.110
  • the more perverted
  • 00:23:55.110 --> 00:23:56.290
  • this generation becomes,
  • 00:23:56.290 --> 00:23:59.040
  • somebody's gotta say,
  • 00:23:59.040 --> 00:24:00.180
  • "I wanna be pure.
  • 00:24:00.180 --> 00:24:02.050
  • I wanna be clean.
  • 00:24:02.050 --> 00:24:03.220
  • I want my mind clean.
  • 00:24:03.220 --> 00:24:05.210
  • I want my heart clean.
  • 00:24:05.210 --> 00:24:07.200
  • I'm going to kill
  • 00:24:07.200 --> 00:24:09.070
  • - In closing moments,
  • 00:24:16.270 --> 00:24:17.250
  • I wanna talk to you about
  • 00:24:17.250 --> 00:24:18.240
  • something that moved me and,
  • 00:24:19.020 --> 00:24:22.020
  • I don't think
  • 00:24:22.020 --> 00:24:22.160
  • I'll ever be the same.
  • 00:24:22.160 --> 00:24:23.230
  • God has opened some
  • 00:24:23.230 --> 00:24:25.070
  • unprecedented opportunities
  • 00:24:25.070 --> 00:24:27.170
  • for this ministry
  • 00:24:27.170 --> 00:24:28.120
  • And, I can tell you,
  • 00:24:30.210 --> 00:24:31.290
  • the work that we're doing
  • 00:24:31.290 --> 00:24:33.060
  • in Israel is critical.
  • 00:24:33.060 --> 00:24:35.290
  • Just in the last few weeks,
  • 00:24:35.290 --> 00:24:38.120
  • rockets, if you've been
  • 00:24:38.120 --> 00:24:39.080
  • watching the news,
  • 00:24:39.080 --> 00:24:40.080
  • have been fired,
  • 00:24:40.080 --> 00:24:41.080
  • and injuries and chaos
  • 00:24:41.080 --> 00:24:42.280
  • has plagued a tiny region
  • 00:24:42.280 --> 00:24:45.060
  • bordering Gaza, in Egypt.
  • 00:24:45.060 --> 00:24:47.130
  • A tiny region of Israel
  • 00:24:47.130 --> 00:24:49.130
  • is the Eshkol Region,
  • 00:24:49.130 --> 00:24:51.200
  • and there, we're building
  • 00:24:51.200 --> 00:24:53.120
  • the Eshkol Region Trauma Center.
  • 00:24:53.120 --> 00:24:56.010
  • We broke ground on it,
  • 00:24:56.010 --> 00:24:57.120
  • it is under construction.
  • 00:24:57.120 --> 00:24:59.110
  • the Biblical prophecy
  • 00:25:00.150 --> 00:25:02.130
  • as Isaiah spoke
  • 00:25:02.130 --> 00:25:03.190
  • in the 40th chapter,
  • 00:25:03.190 --> 00:25:04.260
  • when He said, "Comfort ye,
  • 00:25:04.260 --> 00:25:06.230
  • comfort ye, My people",
  • 00:25:06.230 --> 00:25:08.270
  • and that's exactly
  • 00:25:08.270 --> 00:25:09.210
  • what we're doing.
  • 00:25:09.210 --> 00:25:11.080
  • The Center that we're building
  • 00:25:11.080 --> 00:25:12.280
  • will have an indoor playground
  • 00:25:12.280 --> 00:25:14.160
  • for over 2.500 children,
  • 00:25:15.190 --> 00:25:18.190
  • where they can play
  • 00:25:18.190 --> 00:25:19.220
  • and dream and grow in safety,
  • 00:25:19.220 --> 00:25:22.210
  • along with elderly

  • 00:25:23.220 --> 00:25:25.050
  • in that very area.
  • 00:25:25.050 --> 00:25:27.190
  • I'm not gonna tell you
  • 00:25:27.190 --> 00:25:28.140
  • what to give.
  • 00:25:28.140 --> 00:25:30.080
  • I'm only gonna ask you
  • 00:25:30.080 --> 00:25:31.200
  • to seek the Lord,
  • 00:25:31.200 --> 00:25:33.030
  • and see what He would
  • 00:25:33.030 --> 00:25:34.040
  • have you do.
  • 00:25:34.040 --> 00:25:36.070
  • And, as we do this together,
  • 00:25:36.070 --> 00:25:37.280
  • I believe God will pour out
  • 00:25:37.280 --> 00:25:39.160
  • blessings on you,

  • 00:25:45.140 --> 00:25:46.170
  • Here's my announcer
  • 00:25:46.170 --> 00:25:48.010
  • - ANNOUNCER: Each year,
  • 00:25:50.110 --> 00:25:50.270
