The Seven Spirits of Deuteronomy Seven - and The One that Comprises Them All

What could be worse than the seven demonic spirits of Deuteronomy 7? To have them all rolled up together in one clever, attractive package. The seven 'nations' or spirits mentioned in Deuteronomy 7:1 are:

Hitittes – descendants of Heth, the second son of Canaan (Genesis 10:15) who lived in Hebron in the West Bank, south of Jerusalem – what is today the second largest area for terrorists.  A terrorist (“Sons of Terror”). 
·        Deception resulting in extreme manifestations of fear and terror (fear, dread, depression); subliminal torments (paranoia’s).
·        Left handed (underhanded) deceit who’s end game is death of the victim – see Judges chapter 3 (Ehud and Eglon)

Girgashites - "clay dwellers" -  earthliness, thickheaded stubbornness dealing in unbelief in what cannot be seen resulting in faithlessness.;
·       promotes a focus on earthly, temporal, things, and...

produces a disdain for things that are "spiritual" and eternal.
·       People infected with this type of spirit tend to focus on things that are visible in the physical with no knowledge of the unseen
·       The Greek word for ‘seen’ in 2 Corinthians 4:18 is blepo, which means, "to discern mentally".
Girgashites are very analytical people who base their life's decisions on the pros and cons that their minds are able to perceive. For this reason the Girgashite spirit is the most common type of evil spirit with current day believers – preventing Christians from focusing on the unseen and getting them to focus on the visible (see 1 Corinthians 2:14).

Amorites – “Mountain people”.  Just as mountains tend to dominate over the landscape they are in, Amorites are people who like to dominate and rule over others. They tend to establish an imposing and seemingly immovable presence.

·        The Amorite spirit is one of self-promotion, ego and pride. (In most of scripture the word “Mountain” refers to “kingdoms” - Revelation 17 for example -  and in Matthew 17:20  - but here it is literal). 
·       When you do a search of Old Testament verses that contain either of these 7 names in Hebrew along with the Hebrew word for king, melek, the Amorite spirit dominates:

Verses referring specifically to...
Amorite kings
Amorite and Canaanite kings
Canaanite kings
Hittite kings
Kings of all 7 nations except for the Girgashites

·        Amorites resent subjects who disobey their commands because they claim to have heard the voice of God giving them a different command – they are false prophets and the Amorite spirit is in every false prophet.

·        It was and is the most prevalent evil spirit, with pride leading the pack.

Canaanites - "Lowland people" deal in earthly passions, perversions and addictions and seek to please others resulting in compromising beliefs in favor of not rocking the boat.
·        Think of Sodom and Gomorrah which were Canaanite cities (Genesis 10:9).
·        Alcoholics, drug and sex addicts are infected with a Canaanite spirit.  
·        The spirits of homosexuality and lesbianism, along with all other sexual perversions, are Canaanite spirits. 
·        These spirits operate through people's emotions (the flesh) and make a concerted effort to shut off the person's mind, since the mind is the part of the soul most related to making judgments of right and wrong.

Perrizites - "Village people" are lazy and lack vision. Small thinkers with a low self esteem and extremely apathetic resulting in lulling believers in a spirit of sleep.  
·        People infected by the Perizzite spirit see themselves as having little potential whose only task in life is to live a quiet existence and to stay out of the way of the people who are "really" important in this world.
·        They have very low self esteem and this carries over to how they think of the "villagers" around them, including their offspring. 
·        Perizzite spirits tend to produce successive generations of spiritual and literal poverty due to stagnation…a true generational curse.
Like Jonathan’s son Mephibosheth, the cripple, Perizzites are lame due to lack of  self-worth. They feel unworthy and spiritually unable to walk on their own.

"Walking" in Scripture is a spiritual description of the ability to conquer and to establish kingdom authority. In the natural, walking is considered one of the first signs of growth and maturity in babies. Perizzites are spiritual cripples, unable to walk in kingdom authority due to unbelief that God has given them His own power, so they never mature in their faith.

Hivites – means “"belonging to a village", which is very similar to the meaning of "Perizzite". Everything said about the Perizzites also apply to Hivites. Hivites also have a limited vision of life. What makes them different from the Perizzites, however, is the way in which people under the influence of Hivite spirits limit their life.

·        The word "Hivite" is derived in Hebrew from the word chavvah, which means "life" or "living". In fact, chavvah is the original version of the name "Eve".

"And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living." (Genesis 3:20)

·        Since "Hivite" is related to the concept of "life" in Hebrew, we can infer that the Hivites' vision of life is not one of limitation, poverty, and self-deprecation, as is the case with the Perizzites. On the contrary, Hivites love to "live it up" – but in the most depraved ways of self indulgence.

Another interesting aspect can be derived from the only other appearance of the name "Eve" in the Old Testament:

"And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD." (Genesis 4:1)

The name "Cain" means, "possession".  This is why Eve said, "I have gotten a man from the Lord". The name "Cain" refers to possessing an inheritance handed down by someone else. From this, we can infer in the Spirit that Hivites are people who have acquired some type of inheritance that allows them the "freedom" to live "la vida loca". This is why the Hivite spirit is so prevalent in the sons and daughters of the very wealthy. 

Jebusites – Descendants of Jebus, who inhabited Jerusalem prior to its conquest by Joshua (Joshua 11:3 and 12:10), meaning “Threshers” or “to stomp”.

·        They seek to suppress spiritual authority in fellow believers by psychologically trampling them the way oxen would trample grain on a threshing floor.
·        They are hyper-spiritual to the point of legalism, always pointing out the wrong and criticizing fellow believers resulting in a broken spirit.
·        This is a rapidly growing spirit within the body today;  a snooty, holier than thou spirit with a sense of entitlement. A legalistic spirit that seeks to trap with a warped definition of holiness.

Jebusites believe that everybody else is inherently inferior to them, without a right to manifest any kind of authority. Racism is a Jebusite spirit. 

When you roll all of these together into one demonic spiritual influence, what do you suppose you end up with? Jezebel! You would actually have to add to this list of spirits a seducing spirit and a lying spirit. One common trait of Jezebel is that she will only target men with an anointing in ministry. He end goal is the completely destruction of not only the ministry but the minister…and she is very active in today’s church. The closer we get into end times, the more prevalent she will become.

Jezebel seeks to intimidate others (Hittite) by way of her 'superiority' as a false prophet, always putting herself above others (Amorite). She will cause unbelief (Girgashites) in her followers by creating doubt in the word by twisted interpretations (Canaanite). She is the queen of pride, seeking only glory for herself (Amorite) and demands attention by domineering and spiritually bullying others (Hittite, Jebusite). She deals in perversions and compromise (Canaanite) both of the word of God as well as sexual misconduct or thinking (Hivite). At her heart is a very strong lack of self esteem and self worth (Perrizites), which she compensates for by coming off as superior - She has all the answers for everybody else but can't see the forest for the trees in her own deficiencies. She is extremely earthly in thought and action (Girgashites, Canaanite and Hivites) all the while preaching holiness as a deception (Hittite). She is a dichotomy of spiritual natures - the text book definition of a narcissist. She constantly criticizes believers (Jebusite) . Her hyper-spirituality (Jebusite) is always accusing others of being wrong about almost everything - the word, their ministry and their place and calling in the Kingdom of God.

·       At the very core of Jezebel was a hatred of everything about God. On this basis alone, I it is incorrect to label a believer as a Jezebel without some other leading factor – and that leading factor is always the underlying factor of Narcissism that leads to demonic infestation.
·       95% of the time Jezebel will either seemingly be prophetic or claim to be a Prophet. – but Jezebel is NOT prophetic but operates with familiar demonic spirits – they are ‘clairvoyant’, a demonic spirit, and never a true prophet.

All Jezebels were Narcissists Before “Salvation” – and what they have isn’t true salvation. Their salvation is as much a lie as every word that comes out of her mouth. She is a spiritual fa├žade.

·       Spirtualize everything claiming prophetic revelation (How can you argue with the prophetic?)

The man who ordained me, my mentor, friend and senior board member of DPMI for the last 45 years or so is Jim Croft, who wrote the very first book on Jezebel, “The Jezebel Influence” in 1971…his mother was the model.
There is a national average of 1,500 pastors leaving the ministry every month…some due to burn out but there are a good number forced out due to exposed sexual impropriety. Many others are having affairs with Jezebels in their congregation and many marriages end in divorce because of it – either way in most cases their ministry is destroyed. The proof of this ongoing Jezebelic influence is last stated in Revelation 2, starting in verse 19 – which was written 600 years after the actual person of Jezebel first appeared in 1 Kings 18…and this is to the church at Thyatira:

19 ‘I know your deeds, and your love and faith and service and perseverance, and that your [i]deeds of late are greater than at first.20 But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols. 21 I gave her time to repent, and she does not want to repent of her immorality. 22 Behold, I will throw her on a bed of sickness, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of [l]her deeds. 23 And I will kill her children with pestilence, and all the churches will know that I am He who searches the minds and hearts; and I will give to each one of you according to your deeds. 
 26 He who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations; 

·       Jezebel is a mix. It has both feminine and masculine aspects wrapped up into one entity.  
·       She was and is extremely artful and persuasive in her manner; who is capable of exerting a wide influence over others.
·       She has talents of a high order, quotes scripture but twists it’s meaning to suit her agenda, a thorough advocate of error by twisting scriptural truths.
·       She is unscrupulous in the means which she employs for accomplishing her ends and can have church leadership eating out of her hand.  She will do or say anything to wiggle her way in – with ministry destruction as her goal.
·       She is promiscuous and unprincipled in accepted rules or conventions but can be so inviting and irresistibly charismatic in her approach as to hide her true destructive nature.

Jezebel is the greatest weapon in Satan's arsenal because she is so intelligent, conniving and deceiving as to not be obvious in her approach - until she has her claws buried deep in her chosen target. She is extremely versatile, encompassing so many different aspects of the demonic, looking irresistibly attractive and enticing on the outside but demonically infested and rotten to the core on the inside - and it is all aimed at destroying ministers and ministries. This is not a spirit that will target you if you’re not doing the work of the Kingdom.

We overcome Jezebel by removing ourselves from her influence – cutting her off - identifying vulnerable areas of weakness in our life, pleading the blood of Jesus and seeking deliverance for our own demons, soul ties and familiar spirits that Jezebel can use against us. In this case, 100% of the time we must seek outside help from a reputable deliverance minister who knows Jezebel. When we do, we will have overcome by the blood of the lamb and the word of our testimony. Amen.
