Characteristics of the Ahab Spirit

(* The pronoun ‚he‘ used to describe Ahab is for grammatical purposes only. The Ahab spirit can reside in a male or female. –www.facebook.com/spiritofjezebel-)

Where there is a Jezebel spirit in the pulpit, the congregation has to have a spirit of Ahab… –Henry Walker, Don’t tolerate the spirit of Jezebel!

Passive versus Aggressive character traits

Over-merciful
versus
over-legalistic

Passive people like Ahab tend to be overmerciful, seeing the best in every person and overlooking too much. They forgive others too quickly (not making them aware of their offense) and also forgive people who have not asked for forgiveness and are not even remorseful. This almost certainly guarantees the abuser’s continued behavior. Aggressive people like Jezebel are on the other extreme — harsh in their expectations and unforgiving when people do not meet their unrealistic expectations.

Walking away from a person
versus
walking over a person

People with passive Ahab personalities quickly give away their power and walk away in order to avoid conflict. They find it easier to push their feelings inside. On the other hand, people with aggressive personalities seem to have no concern or conscience about whom they step on and use, as long as they get their way.

THE AHAB SPIRIT

By Steve Bell

In Isaiah there is a picture of a breakdown in Yahweh’s order for the family: „I will give
children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbor: the child shall behave
himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable… As for my people children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths .“ (Isaiah 3:4-5, 12)
This is a picture of the end times with a complete inversion of leadership. In the last two verses of Malachi, Yahweh emphasized family order. „Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of Yahweh: and he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.“ (Malachi 4:5-6)
When moving into deliverance, you must obey the principles of Yahweh’s order for the
home and for the assembly. Deliverance cannot be held unless we do it according to the
dictates of Yahweh’s Word. This calls for a greatdeal of dying to self because of the nature of the society in which we live today. This all goes back to the assembly, for if it is not in order, then society is out of order. Without order in the home, there will be none in the assembly. Yahweh is sending forth an Elijah spirit in these last days to bring order out of chaos. At the same time the vicious Jezebel spirit was raging through Israel, Yahweh sent an Elijah forth. As it was Yahweh’s way in those days, so it is today.
