Review:The Spiritual Warrior's Guide to Defeating Jezebel by:Jennifer LeClaire

Cover Art
About the Book:
Is Jezebel bending you to its will?
What is the "spirit of Jezebel"--and what influence does it have on your life? Despite decades of teaching on this subject and specific warnings in the Old and New Testaments, the Church is still being distracted from her endtime purpose. This high-level principality fools sincere believers into directing their prayer power against controlling individuals in their midst, while the real enemy and its real purpose remain hidden.
Through Scripture, prophetic insight and practical experience, Jennifer LeClaire roots out the underlying workings of this evil spirit. Manipulation and control are just surface-level fruit. The devil's deeper agenda, she explains, is idolatry and immorality.
If you are a believer, then you are already being baited by this seductive spirit. This guidebook shows you how to identify the true enemy and engage in effective warfare. Here are the weapons you need to battle the Jezebel deception--and win.

My Review:
 I never really realized until after reading this book that the somewhat common spirit of Jezebel is alive and well in many of our churches. I don't know why but it just never dawned on me. The author in her book, The Spiritual Warrior's Guide to Defeating Jezebel takes us down the road to the background behind the beast, if you will. She begins by pointing out that the obvious Jezebel spirit may not be the person in your church that is the overbearing and really strong personality that is the gossiper but more often than not the one that would slip in under the radar. The one that is well liked by everyone. Apparently that is how she operates.

 The author goes on to say that while Jezebel wields the weapons of control and manipulation, she is not the spirit of control. She is in essence the spirit of seduction. She is extremely crafty and knows who to make her victims. The author states that even the biggest most active churches can be attacked and her spirit succeed in taking them down. Luckily for us the author has researched and found a way to identify this spirit and shows us how to pinpoint her and guard ourselves and our church against her and her evil ways.
