Jezebel Spirit Loose in the City

Mad Firing Frenzy Claims another Victim

        A spirit of retaliation has over taken the six members of the rogue board of trustees led by Alma Denise Killen and Clarence Jackson.  This group that seized control of the church in a hostile takeover have committed yet another act of defiance this time against one of Jericho’s finest.  Yesterday Sunday Dec 11, 2011 one of the most humble, spirit filled and caring brothers in our ministry Trenillo Walters (known as Tree) was fired by the rogue six.  Brother Tree the  Supervisor of the Audio Ministry at the Jericho City of Praise became the latest victim of an ‘Out of Control’ rogue board bent on retaliation spawn by a vengeful, controlling, Jezebel spirit.  The unelected rogue board led by Alma Denise Killen and Clarence Jackson with Gloria McLam-McGruder as a figure head reportedly became incensed by Brother Tree’s participation in both the Occupy Jericho protest march held in early November and the intercessory prayer vigils held on the past two Sunday mornings prior to the one unified 10:00 am service. The unelected rogue board’s decision to blatantly disrespect our current Pastor Joel R. Peebles Sr. as well as to retaliate against Brother Tree is another sad chapter in this hostile takeover story. When they changed the locks on the church buildings November 1st, and then lied about the reason for doing it, that was the catalyst that God used to push Brother Tree into that movement. The six rogue members finally retaliated against him on Sunday.

Witnesses reported that Clarence Jackson placed Alma Denise Killen in front of the door to the Audio Sound equipment room yesterday morning along with two PG County Sheriff deputy’s to keep Brother Tree (the Audio Supervisor) from entering that room. He was later fired.  This controlling Jezebel spirit that has a firm grip on these six rogue members has also claimed other victims. This mad firing frenzy has hit long time Attorney for the church Bobby Henry, long time Chairman of the board of trustees William Meadows, trustee Anne Wesley and one the maintenance staff Mr. Smallwood.  Mr. Smallwood was fired for helping out Pastor Joel and First Lady Ylawnda.  Get this, myself and others included never knew the first name of Chairman Meadows until the six rogue members sued him in court because Apostle Peebles (mom) always called him Chairman Meadows, Hmmm!!

Brother Tenillo Walters has been a member of the Jericho City of Praise for 36 years.  He has unselfishly served the audio ministry for over 15 years since before the new edifice was built. He has served under both of the founders of Jericho, Bishop James R. Peebles Senior and Apostle Betty P Peebles, their three sons Pastor James Peebles Jr., Elder John R. Peebles Minister of Music and Pastor Joel R. Peebles Sr.  Brother Tree has many years of experience working in the audio & visual production area for large corporations such as Bet and ESPN to name a few.  Over the years he has dedicated his god given talent to make Jericho’s audio ministry a ministry of excellence.  He often comes in early and either stays late or takes work home with him. Brother Tree has also propped up this ministry by bringing and utilizing his own personal equipment. When there are special event at church such as a conference or concert, Brother Tree could be seen hauling in needed speakers, sound boards, cables & wires, etc., you name it.  He transformed the Audio ministry into a ministry of excellence.

Kudos to you! Brother Tree

    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. (page 59)

    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 his wrong actions or behavior, he also is quick to take credit for benefits for which he 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. One pastor wrote a six-page letter to his elders about a situation in the church. The context was so vague that no one was without confusion. 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. He seemingly has endless (nervous) energy and eagerly looks for opportunities to be in charge of projects. Although he will work hard, his motive is never pure, and eventually his secret agenda cannot be hidden.

    7. Lies

    A Jezebel lies convincingly. No one can lie better than he can. He can turn on the charm and make you believe blue is red. He always fools those whom he’s just met while those who have been victimized by his 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 him. 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 controller.

    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. He just cannot bring himself 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. He has to be the one who looks good, so he will quickly sharply criticize anyone who makes a suggestion or plan. Even though he likes the plan, he can only criticize it because the idea did not originate from him. Criticizing others elevates the controller in his own mind.

    11. One-upmanship

    A person with a Jezebel spirit will always upstage another person. He feels threatened by anyone who dares to steal the limelight or anyone who is a threat to his 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, he will push to be the “first” to know it. He seems to know everything about everyone. Where he gets all his 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 him 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, he does all the talking, whether it is about sports, the weather or the Kingdom of God. Because of this form of control, he is unable to receive input from anyone in his life. All conversation with him 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 a problem; I don’t.”

    16. Is insubordinate

    A Jezebel never takes the side of the employer or a person in authority, unless it is a temporary action to make himself look good. He often will take credit for someone else’s idea. His 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. He 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. He fraternizes with no one unless it is to get you to “cooperate” with his agenda.

    29. Is religious

    A Jezebel dwells in the local church but doesn’t like authority unless he is in the position of authority.

    30. Hides

    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 himself, to communicate, to like or dislike and to express his taste and creativity.

    Those who control are in worship of their own wills and their own ways. Thank God for freedom.

    If you recognize any of these traits in your own life, begin by praying this prayer.

    Father, I acknowledge that I have yielded myself to the spirit of Jezebel.I come to you, humbling myself before you. I desire your standard of righteousness and holiness. I ask you to forgive me for my tolerance of the Jezebel spirit and for being sympathetic to its ways. Please forgive me for every way I have opened myself up to this spirit. Help me to ruthlessly reject every type of this thinking and the desire to control and manipulate other people. I renounce and bind this demon of Jezebel, and I pull down this stronghold in my life. Through the Holy Spirit I will live by your standard of righteousness, holiness and conduct. Open my eyes and cause Your light to expose any darkness, and help me to walk in humility and truth. In Jesus Name, AMEN!
