What is Behind the War on Gender in America?
Dr. Michael Brown has written a new book to be released in August 2019, Jezebel’s War with America: The Plot to Destroy Our Country and What We Can Do to Turn the Tide. In an article he recently wrote for TownHall.com he discusses what he believes to be behind the “gender-neutral” agenda in America:
“‘Today,’ he writes, ‘gay activist curricula dominate our children’s schools, beginning with preschool, and drag queens read to toddlers in libraries. Today, students have been expelled from universities and workers have been fired from their jobs for daring to differ with gay activist talking points. As I began warning in 2004, those who came out of the closet have wanted to put us in the closet. They have been incredibly successful in their actions.
“‘Today, in state after state, it is against the law for minors with unwanted same-sex attractions to get professional counseling, with the end goal being a ban on all professional counseling for people of all ages struggling with same-sex attractions.
“‘Today, elementary school children are encouraged to question their gender identity, and under President Obama, high schools would lose federal funding if they refused to allow 15-year-old boys who identified as girls to play on the girls’ sports teams and share their locker rooms.
“‘…The spirit of Jezebel is at work in the 21st century through sexual immorality, abortion, radical feminism and even the fascination with witchcraft and sorcery.’”1 Believers must be equipped in a new generation to defeat the spirit of Jezebel on a personal and national level.
“But I have this complaint against you. You are permitting that woman—that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet—to lead my servants astray. She teaches them to commit sexual sin and to eat food offered to idols.” (Revelation 2:20; NLT)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
- Jezebel is an age-old enemy of God’s purposes and His people. It is a spirit, not a person. It borrows people of both genders to carry out its demonic plans and purposes. Educate yourself on this spirit. Click here and here for a couple of resources.
- Read 1 Kings 18:13 through 19:3, 1 Kings 21:1-16, 2 Kings 9, and Revelation 2:18-29 for the story of the woman Jezebel for whom this spirit is named.
- Repent for any place you have participated with the Jezebel spirit, especially if you have been compassionate toward its agenda. Please be compassionate toward those deceived by it.
- Intercede for those struggling with their gender identity in this nation, understanding that there is a spirit behind this sudden wave of confusion, especially among our youth and young adults.
- Pray for your state and local school boards to realize how harmful the gender-neutral agenda is. Pray that they come to their senses.
- Pray the same for governors and state legislators. Pray the same for national leadership.
A prayer you can pray:
Lord, Jezebel is a spirit in Satan’s camp that perverts sexuality. It manipulates, controls and threatens to get its way in the earth. This genderless spirit is attempting to make humans genderless, as well. However, your plan is that male and female together would show forth Your nature and glory. We are to multiply and fill the earth with Your glory. You created men and women differently for a purpose and we can embrace who You decided we would be. Teach us about the Jezebel spirit, this enemy of the cross and our nation. It is working hard to turn the natural mind its direction. Forgive us where we have not heeded your Word, or where we have remained ignorant of it. If we do not deal with this, we will suffer in a nation that persecutes the Church. Let school board officials in our localities and states come to their senses and reverse course, shutting Jezebel out. May our national leaders “see” the long-term effect of allowing this spirit free-reign. This is not compassion! People need to be set free from deception. Jezebel will destroy them, and then destroy our society, attempting to limit the Kingdom-advancing activities of the Church. Teach us to pray against the Jezebel spirit in Jesus’ name, amen.
