Love Series: Twin Souls??

I was reading this thread about the concept of “twin souls” which I believe is a theory about one “soul” that was joined together at one time (not sure when) and they separate (not sure how), and they search the earth until they find one another and then when they do, they should be joined together as soul-mates. What the heck?

twin soulsThis is why it’s important that people first of all are saved, secondly know and study their Bible. When I was reading this concept, and I did some research I learned this is a New Age teaching.

The Bible is clear that God took a rib from Adam and formed a woman. That was in the beginning. No where in the bible does it say that you have been separated from our soul-mate. I think this is something the enemy can use to make people think they belong together when they really don’t.

It’s kind of sad when people don’t really know and respect the Bible, they become susceptible to all kinds of false theories and theology. Experience does NOT trump the Word of God.

I believe God shows us his best possibility where a mate is concerned. He sees what is up ahead and He knows who will be the best choice. And since He knows all and sees all, I think I would trust Him more than my own judgement. You can fall in love with someone who is not right for you even though it seems they are. And the Bible is clear that AFTER you marry the two will become one.

Christians should not adhere to New Age teaching. It’s false and will lead you into deception.

Mark 10:7-8

New International Version (NIV)

‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,[a] and the two will become one flesh.’[b] So they are no longer two, but one flesh.

Love Series: The Breaking of a Soul-tie Pt.3

Soul-TiesThis part is for the person who finds themselves in a situation where their mate/fiance/promised mate, has left them and formed an attachment with someone else. It can be the most painful and intimidating thing in the world, but I want to say, DON’T LOSE HOPE!

The first thing you have to do is decide you are in it for the long haul. Decide NOW, if you still want that person, in spite of all the hurt and pain and mess. Once you know the answer is yes, get ready to FIGHT! Not a physical or verbal battle, but more in the spirit than anything else.

Today, God told me that the rest of this battle I am dealing with will be won through prayer and fasting and sometimes that is the only way it will be done.

I had a relative who went through this before she married her husband. Her now husband was soul-tied to this woman and she fasted and prayed and gave up Thanksgiving dinner to get him lose and sometimes that is what you have to do if you want YOUR mate. Get over the hurt and the pain and/or bruised ego and get in the realm of the spirit. The battle is already over! You just have to pull that person out of the enemies hands!

I am dealing with a situation like this. God showed it to me BEFORE it happened. Most of the battle is over, but I am tired of looking at the residue. God prepared me for this years ago. He even showed me WHO the woman was, through dreams and even people I know had dreams about it. I can’t let go now. I at the finished line. Sometimes people don’t have the strength, so you step in and be their strength. I am decreeing IT’S OVER!

Matthew 17:21

King James Version (KJV)

21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

Love Series: The Breaking of a Soul-tie Pt. 2

Soul-TiesI’ve not been posting like I should because I had to catch up on my rest (not sleeping). I also was thinking  it was not necessary, but even after God speaks, we still have to walk it out. The assignment is not over.

Now here is how you break relationship soul-ties:

1. You put DISTANCE between you and the person you can’t seem to let go of. When God told me that Pastor was not the one for me, I left the church. There was no reason for me to be around him anymore. When you are breaking a soul-tie, you need to stop communicating. It may seem like you are being rude, but the first step is to distance yourself, by not being in that persons presence, and or not responding to their emails, text messages or calls. Delete them off Facebook, twitter, etc. You don’t need to keep up with what is going on with them if you are trying to break a tie.

2. Resist the temptation of telling them “let’s just be friends”. I never could understand people who remain friends with their ex. Perhaps it’s an insecurity thing. They don’t want the person to be mad at them. But remaining friends with ex. is dangerous in my opinion, especially when you have been involved sexually. There is ALWAYS that chance of restarting the relationship up again.

3.Redirect your attention to something else. I didn’t say someone else, I said SOMETHING else. The reason I say that is because if you move on to someone else, it’s just a rebound relationship and that is not fair to the person who you are using to get over your ex.

4. Focus your attention on GOD for a change. Especially, if you are someone who goes from one relationship to another. Perhaps it’s time to be alone for once in your life.I have a relative who was like that. He started setting up his next relationship when he knew he was leaving his current one. Well that is juvenile and immature.

5. Pray and fast. Nothing will break a tie faster than prayer and fasting.God is able to easily disconnect you from someone you shouldn’t be with. God has a way of breaking up the fantasy and let you see why you can’t be with that person.

6.Be clear about your intentions. Don’t tell someone, “we’re not done” when you know that you are. Stop sending mixed messages and be very strong in your resolve. Tell the person, “yes, I care about your deeply, but I don’t want to waste you time because I know we don’t have a future together.

7. Finally, stop fantasizing about the wedding, the honeymoon, the children and what life is or was going to like. Fantasy, is a dangerous practice because if God changes your course, you are left with a FALSE imagination  Yes, you also have to break the soul-tie in your imagination as well.

God is ready to break the soul-tie, but are you ready to allow it to be broken? If you aren’t get ready, He is about to do it NOW. Waiting will only make it worse!

Love Series: The Breaking of a Soul-tie

Soul-TiesGod knows how to break soul-ties. Especially a tie that He is not going to use in your future. Depending on how deep the tie is and how long it has been going on, is what determines how difficult this process will be.

I shared about my relationship with a former Pastor (single) and how much I wanted to marry him (he wanted me too) and even after God spoke to me to let it go, it took about a year for that tie to break. God spoke loud and clear and there was no bargaining with the Lord. No means no.

Even if I saw this man today, I might remember, but I would never go back to that because that tie has long since been broken. I don’t believe I would even be tempted. But some ties are so deep, it sometimes takes something bad to break it and that is because that tie would become a threat to the future

Let me share a story with you, just to let you know, how true that is. I was having lunch with a woman who was once engaged to a relative of mine and as we talked she began to tell me that she thought she would still end up with my relative even though she was married (with a child) and so was my relative!!!! That is what I call a dangerous soul-tie.

Years had passed and she was still hoping to be with my relative. I’ve seen it time and time again. Women, unable to let go, waiting for that mans current mate to die, so they can step back into place. It’s so sad. But in all of the cases I’ve seen this (quite a few), it’s never once happened. But what it did to the women, was ruin their current relationship because they could not let go of their former lover.

I will never marry anyone who has that kind of bond. It would have to be completely severed, and I mean destroyed with no possible chance of it coming back together and that usually means something tragic will have to happen.

I’ve seen God do it in the past by someone ending up locked up and now I understand why God was showing something like this may have to happen again. When you bind yourself to someone by using the words “twin soul” or “soul-mate”, and it’s not God’s will, usually only a tragedy can sever that bond, so that you will be free to move on and be happy about it. But it doesn’t have to end that way. But the key is to LET GO!

1 Samuel 18:1

King James Version (KJV)

18 And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.

Joseph Knows!

Mary and JosephI love the story of Mary and Joseph and how Mary had a visitation from the angel Gabriel telling her that she was the one who would carry Jesus. I can so identify with this story because Mary was ostracized for a while, when she did nothing wrong except say yes to God.

Mary must have been heart-broken when Joseph decided to put her away because he did not believe her. I’m sure Mary was viewed as “nutty” and I’m sure Joseph talked about her and everyone else did too. Mary had to carry her vision alone for a while until God spoke to Joseph.

I wonder, did Joseph run to her after he received his visitation about Mary? In his case he was probably happy. Even though it was an arranged marriage, maybe he had started to have feelings for Mary. I can imagine how Mary felt. FINALLY, she was believed!! After being disbelieved, now JOSEPH KNEW!!

If a vision from God includes two people, eventually God is going to reveal it to the one that is unsure. And even if one is still having a hard time accepting it after it’s been revealed, I personally would just be relieved that the other party knew. Even if that person needs time to process it and get untangled from something else, I would just be happy that “Joseph knows”.

God told me this recently and now I understand why God told me that I will need to have an extraordinary amount of patience. Just because someone knows doesn’t mean the circumstance will change overnight. It’s all a process and it will take a little bit of time, but that is okay, just as long as Joseph knows!!

Matthew 1:18-21

New International Version (NIV)

Joseph Accepts Jesus as His Son

18 This is how the birth of Jesus the Messiah came about[a]: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Holy Spirit. 19 Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet[b] did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

20 But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21 She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,[c] because he will save his people from their sins.”

Recognizing the Shift

computer_key_ShiftWhen you have been trusting God for His promises for a long time,sometimes it’s hard to recognize the shift. But eventually your promise will begin to shift and move toward manifestation, so you have to recognize the shift and move out of “belief” mode and transition and get ready to take that “baby” into you hands.

God gave me two visions, in the same year, many years ago, and what a journey!! But in the last two weeks, I have seen a shift. Things are no longer as they were before,about either one of my visions. The reason I know is because I have entered into a rest.

With one of the visions, the week of the change, the Lord told me, he was doing a new thing. I didn’t believe it at first, but then I began to see what God was showing me.

Then there was my other vision. This past week I was able to get something accomplished because of an unexpected harvest. God told me it was a sign. The tide is turning and this is just beginning.

No matter how long you have to wait for the promise, one day, it will all begin to shift and transition and you have to recognize it and shift gears. I can’t explain it, but I know like I have never known, that my change has come.

Ezekiel 12:26-28

New International Version (NIV)

26 The word of the Lord came to me: 27 “Son of man, the Israelites are saying, ‘The vision he sees is for many years from now, and he prophesies about the distant future.’

28 “Therefore say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: None of my words will be delayed any longer; whatever I say will be fulfilled, declares the Sovereign Lord.’”
