Consider the number of daily headlines that have something to do with sex: sex trafficking charges that take down high-powered executives, sexual harassment allegations against entertainers, sexual assault, pornography, the LGBTQ agenda, pedophilia, marriage infidelity.
The list, laments author and national radio host Dr. Michael Brown, goes on and on.
What's behind this sexual seduction of America?
Brown's newly released book, Jezebel's War with America: The Plot to Destroy Our Country and What We Can Do to Turn the Tide, is creating buzz and initiating important conversations. In his newest work, Brown details how the same evil spirit of the biblical figure Jezebel is alive and well today—and how her spirit is evident through the permutation of all things sexual in our society.
"Queen Jezebel was an incredibly evil and demonically controlled woman, but the same demonic powers that operated through her 3,000 years ago are operating today in America once again," Brown says "She was a seductress, according to the Bible and ancient Jewish tradition, and we see the same spirit of sexual seduction alive and well and thriving in America today. There is more porn available than at any time in human history. There are websites encouraging adultery and every type of sexual perversion. Children as young as 8 years old are having their first encounter with pornography today. This is the hypersexualization of our culture. You can hardly go to a news website or a sports website without seeing racy pictures. You can hardly go to a checkout counter in a store without being exposed to almost naked photos. You can hardly open your emails without sexual invitations popping up in your junk folder. And modesty is all but gone. Every part of the body must be shown. Flesh must be displayed. Almost nothing can be hidden or covered. After all, sex sells! That is the spirit of Jezebel at work."
Released earlier this month, Jezebel's War with America focuses on the fact that the spirit of the biblical figure Jezebel is at work through a fascination with witchcraft and sorcery, radical feminism coupled with the extreme pro-abortion movement, along with other spiritual and cultural forces in an attempt destroy America. Brown's eye-opening book not only unveils a satanic plot, beginning with an all-out assault on the church, but it will equip every believer with tools to defeat the enemy in their own personal lives as well as in the nation.
All hope is not lost, however, Brown says, and there are action steps the faithful can take to defeat Jezebel. And it involves more than "getting mad."
"It's easy to get mad at people, at them," Brown says. "The media is not fair. The courts are biased. The schools are brainwashing our kids. The porn industry is evil. Hollywood is pumping out trash. The internet giants are anti-Christian. LGBT activists are taking away our rights. We all have our list of grievances. We all have our pet peeves. And many of them are quite valid. We do have reason to be grieved, and people are responsible for their actions. At the same time, our real enemies are spiritual. Our biggest battle is with satanic powers. And that is a major reason I wrote Jezebel's War with America—to help us connect the dots and to help us see that there is a related, integrated coalition of demonic forces attacking our nation, and those forces have the characteristics of Jezebel.
"How, then, do we defeat Jezebel on a national level?" he asks. "Obviously, if we want to help others, we must get our own houses in order. As some of us said years ago during court battles over the public display of the Ten Commandments, the biggest problem is not that we've taken these commandments out of our schools; it's that we removed them first from our hearts and homes. So first, we get our own houses in order. Then we turn to the nation."
