f you are a woman who has been called Jezebel, you are in great company. Some of the most creative, intelligent, resourceful, unique, ministry-minded, brilliant women have been called by that name. Usually it's because somebody wanted to squeeze them into a religious box and they decided to follow God instead.
There is not one reference in the Bible to the "spirit of Jezebel". Jesus met hookers and adulteresses and troubled women of all kinds and He never ever referred to any of them as having a Jezebel spirit. In fact, he treated them all like royalty.
If the spirit of Jezebel made a habit of running around glomming onto women and turning them into Medusas, I think we would have heard about it somewhere in the Bible. But there is no mention of anything like that.
This label is usually administered as a control measure. But in years gone by many outstanding women would have been called a witch and burned at the stake, so I guess things are improving.
The real Jezebel was not someone I would have liked to meet in a dark alley. I guess the reason men do not really have an equal and opposite insult commonly thrown at them, ("the spirit of Ahab", for instance), is that there are so many men who were really bad in the Bible that there isn't one particular masculine baddie name which stuck. Just think, if it hadn't been for Jezebel, when someone gets angry at a woman, all they could say would be, "You, you... spirit of, of,.... badness you!"
