In this blog post we will continue our expose’ of the spirit of Ahab. (Please see my youtube channel for part one and two.) (Please see my book for a detailed battle plan)
I wrote about this unclean spirit in my book as I was shown he is one of three demons that rule the hierarchy of Babylon “(And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs, leaping from the mouth of the dragon, and from the mouth of the beast and from the mouth of the false prophet; for they are actually spirits of demons performing signs .” Revelation 16:13) .”
I was shown that they currently lead the religious system, the political system and the family .
I vowed to God that I would gut them like fish and expose them before the world so that men and women could be free, by casting them down forever.
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds ; casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God,and bringing in to captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:4-5
In this writing I will update you more on this spirits characteristics ,hoping that you all have been working towards the same thing that I am, leaving spiritual Babylon in the dust and following the true kingdom of God, built by the true Jesus.
“Then a single powerful angel picked up a boulder like a great millstone and flung it into the sea, saying ,” Babylon the great will be hurled down (by the sudden judgement of God), and will never again be found.” Revelation 18:21
One of the saddest things about Ahab men is there lack of remorse and repentance, even though they are “provokers” and responsible for most of the dysfunction in their “kingdoms”.
Ahab did more to provoke the Lord God of Israel than all the kings of Israel before him. 1 Kings 16:33 amp
Provoke- to deliberately make someone annoyed or angry; stimulate or incite (someone) to do or feel something
The fact that Ahab does this to God himself is mind blowing and shows his total lack of reverence and respect. He honestly believes he is getting by with it, he thinks he is slick because he doesn’t admit any wrong doing. He foolishly curses his own self to death.
And the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying, Arise, go down to meet Ahab King of Israel,which is in Samaria: behold, he is in the vineyard of Naboth, where he is gone down to possess it. And thou shall speak to him,saying,Thus saith the Lord, Hast thou killed, and also taken possession? And thou shall speak unto him ,saying, thus saith the Lord, in the place where dogs licked the blood of Naboth shall dogs lick your blood. 1 Kings 21:19
I have seen this spirit in operation hundreds of times, and during deliverance sessions you will walk away feeling frustrated and hopeless for the people who sit under this spirit. Ahab’s role in the world is so prolific,but few seem to care about the great damage it has caused or how much earthly power it actually wields.The dysfunction is something everyone seems to sit in and because of Ahab and his lack of self reflection and repentance very few will ever escape its evil ways.
“Therefore confess your sins to one another ,and pray for one another ,that you at be healed and restored.” James 5:16 AMP
The spirit of Ahab stops healing and restoration mainly because he does not engage in true confession and repentance. Sessions with them are always about your sin and how you have grieved them . Try to discuss something with an Ahab and you will quickly learn everything you have done wrong! Repentance cannot be one sided to actually work, but it will be when you deal with this spirit.
In deliverance sessions ,I have seen very few actually get free, leaving the people around them helpless and trapped.
We see this clearly in scripture in the account of 1 Kings chapter 18, there had been a severe famine in the land because of the actions of King Ahab,
However , when the prophet Elijah came to show himself to him, he began to blame the prophet of God. He took no responsibility himself because he is a blameshifter!
The saddest part of this tale is the total lack of remorse or repentance from Ahab! Instead of humbling himself, and asking God to remove the curse and the famine that was afflicting the whole country ,he actually blames the prophet !
“ When Ahab saw Elijah, Ahab said to him ,”Are you the one who is bringing trouble to Israel?” Elijah said, I have brought no disaster to Israel, but you and your fathers household have, by abandoning the commandments of the Lord and by following the Baals.” verse 17
Men with this spirit do this to this day!
The modern term for this is Blameshifting.
According to dictionary.com it means ; A tactic to always push fault on another person.
When you leave a meeting with an Ahab, you will leave being the only one that apologizes or repents. Why? Because he will always put the direct focus on you. In personal relationships it quickly becomes a form of abuse. Blameshifting is an emotionally abusive behavior or tactic. It is very harmful to those pursuing deliverance. It produces a “famine” spiritually and physically.
God is calling all men and all women to repent ,so knowing this we must confront the incessant lack of it in todays world.
I am calling on all men , fathers, sons, bosses, and leaders to rid themselves of Ahab and this starts with confession and repentance! Go to those that you have harmed and apologize! Don’t be like the original Ahab and refuse godly instruction! Take responsibility before it is too late!
Let us pray:
Father we thank you for speaking truth to us and we ask for ears that will hear you and hearts that will obey you. We tear down the walls of false pretense and ask you to shine a light upon our ways!
I bind the spirit(s) of Ahab from our minds and I cast him down. I ask that you would deal swiftly with this spirit and that you would set the captives free! Help us to honor and reverence you mighty God, in Jesus name we pray!
