Jennifer LeClaire, editor of Charisma News, really cracks me up. She just casually rattles off some of the most ridiculous nonsense as if it were just obvious to all. Like this column, where she says that demonic activity increases in the month of May and explains why.
Every year between Lent and Resurrection Day, Jezebel’s witchcrafts wreak havoc on believers and unbelievers alike. After Resurrection Day, the spiritual climate clears up—until May.
If you live in a region where false Mary worship is rising, you’ll notice that Jezebel’s witchcrafts rise again in May. That’s because of the traditional “May Crowning” ritual that takes place to honor the Virgin Mary as “the Queen of May.”
Essentially, this means there is a hyper focus on devotions to Mary. There are two problems with this. First, Mary doesn’t want or expect our devotion—she wants and expects us to worship the Son of God, Jesus. Second, by treating Mary as an idol we’re empowering the spirit of Jezebel…
The Bible talks about Jezebel and her witchcrafts (2 Kings 9:22). The spirit of Jezebel is the same as Asherah (also known as Ashtoreth). The Old Testament Jezebel’s father, Ethbal, was the high priest of the goddess Ashtoreth, the queen of heaven. Can you connect the dots? Mary is not the queen of May, but Jesus is the king of Kings. If we’re going to build an altar to anyone, it should be to our Lord and Savior, not His earthly mother.
I’ll leave you with this: Witchcraft can cause you to grow weary in well-doing and even faint if you don’t know what you are dealing with—and how to battle it.
And what happens when she gets weary? Try a little tenderness.
