Pastor to Pastor - Exposing The Spirit Of Ahab In Our Families and Churches

Who Is Ahab (historically) I Kings 16:28 - 34 (KJV)
 28 So Omri slept with his fathers, and was buried in Samaria: and Ahab his son reigned in his stead.
 29 And in the thirty and eighth year of Asa king of Judah began Ahab the son of Omri to reign over Israel: and Ahab the son of Omri reigned over Israel in Samaria twenty and two years.
 30 And Ahab the son of Omri did evil in the sight of the LORD above all that were before him.
 31 And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him.
 32 And he reared up an altar for Baal in the house of Baal, which he had built in Samaria.
 33 And Ahab made a grove; and Ahab did more to provoke the LORD God of Israel to anger than all the kings of Israel that were before him.
 34 In his days did Hiel the Bethelite build Jericho: he laid the foundation thereof in Abiram his firstborn, and set up the gates thereof in his youngest son Segub, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Joshua the son of Nun.

Exposing The Spirit Of Ahab
Ahab is a king of Israel who allowed his wife, Jezebel, to usurp authority in his kingdom. The Ahab spirit causes men to be weak as leaders in the home and church. This spirit works with Fear of Jezebel to prevent God's order in the home and the church.A
The result is the destruction of the family priesthood. This is a curse that must be broken before Ahab spirits can be driven out.
Ahab—a fearful male who fails to exert his God given authority with grave consequences  (see Isaiah 3:12).

"As for my people, children are their oppressors, and WOMEN RULE OVER THEM. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths."

The curse of Jezebel opens the door for these spirits to operate in a family.
The spirit of Jezebel operate by manipulating men and usurping their authority in families, churches and institutions.
