SORT BY Relevancy
The Jezebel spirit is born of witchcraft and rebellion. This demon is one of the most common spirits in operation today, both in the church and in the world, and it is a powerful enemy of the body of Christ. She operates freely on sincere believers whose hearts are for God individually, and has also attained positions of power as powers and principalities within the Church. This spirit establishes its stronghold primarily in women; however, many men have been victimized by it as well, where it functions as a "controlling" spirit.
The Spirit of Jezebel is basically a controlling spirit working through the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life. It has, in general, two aims:
To gain identity, glory, recognition, power, and satisfy the need for the "praises of men". This is a consequence of the desire for love and self-worth focussed on SELF.
Secondly the Jezebel spirit is a men hater and seeks to emasculate all men, and divest them of their authority and power over others. It fosters a distrust and hatred of men in general. The "Jezebel spirit" is in a constant agitation, terribly aggressive, very determined, callous, controlling, selfish, power-hungry, manipulative, unrepentant, deceitful spirit, an overwhelmingly evil spirit. Join us as we go into greater detail to rid our homes and lives of this deadly principlity!
When we have been abused or neglected as children it can leave us feeling wounded, deprived, and wronged by those we love and trusted.

As teens develop emotionally, they are heavily influenced by experiences in their relationships. Healthy relationship behaviors can have a positive effect on a teen’s emotional development. Unhealthy, abusive, or violent relationships can have severe consequences and short- and long-term negative effects on a developing teen. Youth who experience dating violence are more likely to experience the following:
Symptoms of depression and anxiety
Engagement in unhealthy behaviors, such as tobacco and drug use, and alcohol
Involvement in antisocial behaviors
Thoughts about suicide
Additionally, youth who are victims of dating violence in high school are at higher risk for victimization during college.
Communicating with your partner, managing uncomfortable emotions like anger and jealousy, and treating others with respect are a few ways to keep relationships healthy and nonviolent. Teens receive messages about how to behave in relationships from peers, adults in their lives, and the media. All too often these examples suggest that violence in a relationship is normal, but violence is never acceptable. There are reasons why violence occurs.
Violence is related to certain risk factors. Risks of having unhealthy relationships increase for teens who —
Believe that dating violence is acceptable
Are depressed, anxious, or have other symptoms of trauma
Display aggression towards peers or display other aggressive behaviors
Use drugs or illegal substances
Engage in early sexual activity and have multiple sexual partners
Have a friend involved in dating violence
Have conflicts with a partner
Witness or experience violence in the home
A wife who takes the responsibility to submit to her husband seriously, does not mean silencing her voice. To the contrary honoring God’s standard for headship, means that he is respected and supported. In order to have agreement, they must work toward the same direction, setting common goals and reaching them together. Mutual respect in a marriage is displayed by “oneness” a unity that is deep,intense, profound and intimate. It embodies the paradox of our faith: lose your life to find it. You lose control to walk in control.
When we have been abused or neglected as children it can leave us feeling wounded, deprived, and wronged by those we love and trusted. Even if the hurt is caused by complete strangers, if not resolved, it can continue to affect us and our subsequent relationships. Join us as Sheryll Roberts author of From Victim to Vessel shares insight on dealing with the emotional pain of abuse; How to avoid and overcome addictive behaviors resulting from abuse; And learning the importance of God’s timing in working through painful memories.

I'm excited to welcome back our phenomenal guest Licensed Professional Counselor/Mental Health Professional, Verily Harper for "Emotional Wellness" Part 3. I shared last week in my early twenty's my emotional outburst were a result of the repressed pain from my mother's death, only I didn't realize that was part of the pain. I saw a doctor for what I thought was horrible PMS! Her prescription changed my life. I didn't take the medication, even at that age, I knew there was more; I didn't want to medicate the problem, I needed deliverance and emotional healing. I AM NOT AGAINST MEDICATION!!! I do believe it must be combined with deliverance and steps toward healing. Join us tomorrow morning August 4, 2015 at 10:00am Call in to listen live at 657-383-0095. We will deal with grief and loss. Many only associate grief with the loss through death, but it encompasses so much more!
