I am in the process of working on a wonderful book that I hope to finish in the next couple of weeks and publish soon after that. One of the chapters deals with Jezebel—the woman and the spirit—but last night while writing, I noticed something interesting. When Jehu, the man anointed to kill Jezebel, came to her house to kill her, he did not actually have to dirty his hands killing her—her own eunuchs did.
“Now when Jehu had come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she put paint on her eyes and adorned her head, and looked through a window. Then, as Jehu entered at the gate, she said, ‘Is it peace, Zimri, murderer of your master?’ And he looked up at the window, and said, ‘Who is on my side? Who?’ So two or three eunuchs looked out at him. Then he said, ‘Throw her down.’ So they threw her down, and some of her blood spattered on the wall and on the horses; and he trampled her underfoot,” (II Kings 9:30-33).
Now some of you may wonder why on earth I am discussing Jezebel and her death in a blog about writing and entrepreneurship. What does it have to do with you? Great question!
What Is a Eunuch?
A eunuch, according to Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary, is a castrated man placed in charge of a harem or employed as a chamberlain in a palace; a man or boy deprived of the testes or external genitals; or one that lacks virility or power. In other words, these men have had their ability to reproduce cut off as a symbol of bondage and servitude to an individual.
There are also those who have been made spiritual and mental eunuchs through circumstance or even through a personal decision. They might not have had a physical cut or procedure, but in their minds and spirits they are eunuchs just the same. These people are completely incapable of fulfilling the blessing and commandment of Genesis 1:27 that commands us all to “be fruitful and multiply”.
Are You a Eunuch?
The eunuchs who served under Jezebel were once strong boys and men, full of capability to procreate and be their own men, but through time and circumstance, they became enslaved and that ability removed from them. They might have even been born into servitude. This represents two forms of eunuch 1) circumstantial and 2) generational. The question is, are you a eunuch? And if so, which kind are you?
You might be working a dead-end or even a wonderful job, but yet in still a job that does not allow you to fulfill your purpose in the earth and provides you no enjoyment. Oftentimes, when you work for a company or individual and never leave, you are employed not to realize your own abilities and dreams, but to fulfill the dreams of your employer. You could also be in a relationship or environment where you are constantly told, and thus programmed, to believe that you cannot accomplish anything and your dreams are pointless. Therefore, your ability to reproduce your dreams is stifled and squashed, just like a castrated man.
You might also be part of a family that has a history of mediocrity, lack, or not chasing their own dreams. They expect you to be just as unaccomplished in life as they are and anytime you dare to hope for something more, your dreams are smacked down and your visions are declared lunacy. You are a eunuch.
The worst type of eunuch in my opinion is the type who purposes to be so. Now I am not talking about the Apostle Paul or any other celibate person who has dedicated their life to God. This is a rare and honourable calling, yet not one most people are called to. I am talking about the people who have stifled their own dreams and ability to multiply. If you are doing anything worthwhile, someone will always tell you that you are crazy. These are those who do not have the revelation of what you are doing in the world. You must not allow the nay-sayers to castrate your dreams.
If you are one of these individuals, it’s time to adopt the same spirit as Jezebel’s eunuchs and throw the wicked queen to her death!
Reverse your Castration and Captivity
This does not mean you should actually start tossing people out of windows. Please don’t do that! But you can cast off your restraints and ask God to renew your ability to be fruitful and multiply. All it took was Jehu calling out to the eunuchs for them to snap and come back to themselves. Consider me your Jehu calling to you and come back to yourself in Jesus’ name!
God has so many ideas, concepts, businesses, books, and inventions that He wants and expects you to birth into the world. “Be fruitful and multiply” does not just mean have a lot of babies. That’s well and good and godly, but it also gives us the know-how to dominate the world. What is your area of dominance? What is your realm of influence? That is the world you are supposed to be fruitful and multiply in which will inevitably allow you to dominate. When you reclaim your ability to reproduce, you bring life to your own dreams and visions and thus become a blessing to others as you serve your gift.
What are the dreams God has placed on your heart? Where has your ability to bring those dreams to past been cut? Submit it to God and watch a creative miracle happen! Write your books! Start your businesses! Create your inventions! God has specific people assigned and connected to your world that will only be touched through those “brain children”. Take the promises of the word that tell you you have the power to get wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18) and your gift(s) will make room for you (Proverbs 18:16) and claim them as your own.
God wants to multiply His image, His heart, and His Kingdom in the world and it can only be done through you. Submit yourself, your abilities, and your dreams to Him and He will prosper you in due season!
Don’t be a eunuch!
