Every generation has faced sexual temptation and engaged in sexual sin, says author and national radio host Dr. Michael Brown, and there is nothing new about it.
But what is new is the technology that makes sexual temptation ubiquitous.
"By 'ubiquitous,' I mean anywhere, anytime, with almost anyone, doing virtually anything," Brown writes in his soon-to-be-released book, Jezebel's War with America: The Plot to Destroy Our Country and What We Can Do to Turn the Tide. "It's all there, fully accessible, and only one click—or tap—away. No generation in history has ever had to deal with sexual temptation at this level. It is nothing less than the sexual seduction of America—and the nations."
In Jezebel's War with America, Brown writes specifically about "the most wicked woman in the Word of God"—Jezebel—and how her demonic spirit is not only alive today but waging a war against America and the American church, especially by way of sexual immorality.
"There is nothing new about sexual immorality," Brown writes. "It has been here throughout human history, which is why the Bible frequently addresses sexual sin. One of the Ten Commandments states, 'You shall not commit adultery.' Jesus warned that sexual immorality could damn us to hell. Paul placed sexual sin at the beginning of his lists of moral prohibitions. And the last chapter of the book of Revelation tells us that the sexually immoral will not enter God's eternal city."
And yet, despite the biblical warnings, sexuality immorality, and namely the extremely high incidence of pornography, has permeated the American culture. It's Jezebel's spirit at work, Brown says.
"You don't have to subscribe to a pornographic magazine," Brown says. "You don't have to go to a seedy part of your city to find a porn theater. All you need is a computer. Or tablet. Or cell phone. And within seconds, you have access to more sexual material than all previous generations combined. And this is not just something teenagers and adults are confronted with."
For instance, he says, consider how this generation has been flooded with porn through these facts, outlined in Jezebel's War with America.
- One parenting website reports: According to recent data, 90% of young men age 18 have been exposed to pornography—much of which is hard-core (meaning it often involves violence and overtly explicit imagery). Of the 90%, the average age these young men were sexualized by pornography was between 8-11 years old. Similarly, 60% of young women by the age of 18 have been exposed to porn as well. Almost 80% of this exposure, which isn't always voluntary, is happening in the perceived safety of their homes.
- Divorce lawyers and others have indicated that porn plays a role in around 60% of divorces.
- "Porn sites receive more regular traffic than Netflix, Amazon and Twitter combined each month."
- "35% of all internet downloads are porn-related."
- "34% of internet users have been exposed to unwanted porn via ads, pop-ups, etc."
- "People who admit to having extramarital affairs were over 300% more likely to admit consuming porn than those who have never had an affair."
- "At least 30% of all data transferred across the internet is porn-related."
To put this in context, Brown adds, in December 2017, it was reported that an average of 197 million users visited Amazon.com, and 127 million visited Walmart.com each month. Yet a leading pornography site draws 125 million visitors per day, with roughly 5 million adult videos uploaded to the site in 2018 alone—enough for 115 years of continual viewing.
"What deadly, often unnoticed, side effects," Brown says. "This is an epidemic of porn.
In Jezebel's War with America, Brown also explains how the forces of radical feminism come together with the extreme pro-abortion movement, among other spiritual and cultural forces, in an attempt to destroy America.
Brown's eye-opening book not only unveils the satanic plot to destroy America, beginning with an all-out assault on the church, but it will equip believers with tools to defeat the enemy in their own personal lives as well as in the nation. Jezebel's War with America reveals how the spirit of Jezebel is at work in the 21st century through sexual immorality, abortion, radical feminism and even the fascination with witchcraft and sorcery, and equips readers to defeat the spirit of Jezebel on a personal and national level.
