"The Spirit of Jealousy," James 3;16 For wherever there is jealousy and selfish ambition, there you will find disorder and evil of every kind.
Jealousy is an emotion, and the word typically refers to the negative thoughts and feelings of insecurity, fear, and anxiety over an anticipated loss of something of great personal value, particularly in reference to another human being. Jealousy is associated with the term envy. The spirit of jealousy is a demonic stronghold that the enemy sends against mankind. This spirit stronghold is evil and deadly.
The spirit of Jealousy is a principality spirit, which stem from evil spirits in high places. Lucifer became jealous of God. Isaiah 14:12-14 and Ezekiel 28:12-19. Lucifer(Satan/devil) was once the Anointed Cherub. Lucifer wanted to exalt himself above God... rather than "just" being the Angel of God. Lucifer was the first to have the spirit of Jealously due to his jealousness of God, because he wanted to be God. Satan was jealous of God, so he turn some of the angels(known as fallen angels) against God. When Lucifer was cast out of Heaven, one third of all the angels were cast out with him. (Rev.12:4,9). Lucifer even tried to corrupted Adam and Eve(the first mankind). Lucifer whisper as (a serpent, evil spirit) in the ears of Eve to manipulate Adam to turn him against God, but Lucifer attempts failed. Sin and the Spirit of Jealousy had entered the world, and into the very nature of man through Adams transgression.
The spirit of Jealousy was present then and is still present on the earth today trying to devour every soul that it can enter. When mankind are ignorant of Satan's devices, Satan goes about to destroy mankind by entering through as the spirit of jealously and turning mankind against God and humanity. The spirit of Jealousy manifests itself in the personality of mankind; through - accusations, feelings of anger, belittling others, blasphemy, causing divisions, competition, criticism, cursing, deception, destruction, dissatisfaction, envy, faultfinding, gossip, greed, hatred, insecurity, judging, lying, malice, materialism, stealing, and suspicion. Many become jealous because of their own insecurity, this evil spirit speaks into individuals' minds. The spirit of jealous gain entrance into mankind through competition, and resentment. Proverbs 6:34 For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance. This spirit will not allow individuals to enjoy life and to be at peace with them self nor with fellowman and God. God wants us to be able to recognize and destroy the spirit of jealousy. God's words for God's people. God Bless you ALL!
