What a soul tie is

The Bible speaks of what is today known as soul ties. In the Bible, it doesn’t use the word soul tie, but it speaks of them when it talks about souls being knit together, becoming one flesh, etc. A soul tie can serve many functions, but in it’s simplest form, it ties two souls together in the spiritual realm. Soul ties between married couples draw them together like magnets, while soul ties between fornicators can draw a beaten and abused woman to the man which in the natural realm she would hate and run from, but instead she runs to him even though he doesn’t love her, and treats her like dirt. In the demonic world, unholy soul ties can serve as bridges between two people to pass demonic garbage through. I helped a young man not too long ago break free from downright awful visitations from demons, all due to an ungodly soul tie he had with a witch. The man was a Christian, and the only thing that allowed her to send demonic torment his way, is through the soul tie. Other soul ties can do things such as allow one person to manipulate and control another person, and the other person is unaware to what is going on or knows what is going on, but for no real reason, allows it to continue.

How soul ties are formed

I believe there are other ways which soul ties are formed, but here are some that I am aware of.

Sexual relations: Godly soul ties are formed when a couple are married (Ephesians 5:31, “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.”), and the Godly soul tie between a husband and the wife that God intended him to have is unbreakable by man (Mark 10:7-9). However, when a person has ungodly sexual relations with another person, an ungodly soul tie is then formed (1 Corinthians 6:16, “What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.”). This soul tie fragments the soul, and is destructive. People who have many past relationships find it very difficult to ‘bond’ or be joined to anybody, because their soul is fragmented.

Close relationships: King David and Jonathan had a good soul tie as a result of a good friendship (1 Samuel 18:1, “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.”), but bad soul ties can form from bad relationships as well. Idolizing somebody can cause a bad soul tie.

I have heard too that you can create a soul tie with a rock group by becoming obsessed with their music. Which explains the strong pull towards certain music that seems almost irresistible.

Vows, commitments and agreements: Vows are known to bind the soul (Numbers 30:2), marriage itself consists of vows and binds the two people together (Ephesians 5:31), therefore I have little reason to overlook the concept of vows or commitments as being a means to create a soul tie.

How to break a soul tie

1. If any sins were committed to cause this soul tie, repent of them! Fornication is perhaps one of the most common ways to create nasty soul ties.

2. If gifts were given to you by the other person in connection with the sin or unholy relationship, such as rings, flowers, cards, bras, etc. I would get rid of them! Such things symbolize the ungodly relationship, and can hold a soul tie in place. If you are still friends or in a relationship (just know it’s no longer an ungodly relationship), like say a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship, except you’ve repented of and forsaken the unholy practices you used to do in your relationship, then I don’t feel it is necessary to destroy all the gifts and things that you have been given. I would still encourage you to get rid of anything that symbolizes the ungodly practices in the relationship though, such as if a guy gives a girl a bra and panties with his initials on them during fornication. I wouldn’t encourage you to hang on to such things that symbolize sin or that are wrong to give each other before marriage. Things such as flowers and love letters given during adultery should be destroyed.

3. Any rash vows or commitments made that played a part in forming the soul tie should be renounced and repented of, and broken in Jesus’ name. Even things like “I will love you forever”, or “I could never love another man!” need to be renounced. They are spoken commitments that need to be undone verbally. As Proverbs 21:23 tells us, “Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.” The tongue has the ability to bring the soul great troubles and bondage.

4. Forgive that person if you have anything against them.

5. Renounce the soul tie. Do this verbally, and in Jesus’ name. Example, “In Jesus’ name, I now renounce any ungodly soul ties formed between myself and ______ as a result of _______________ (fornication, etc.).”

6. Break the soul tie in Jesus’ name! Do this verbally using your authority in Jesus. Example, “I now break and sever any ungodly soul ties formed between myself and _________ as a result of ______________ (fornication, etc.) in Jesus’ name.”

It Ain’t Nothing But a Soul-tie Pt. 2

soul-ties-2I was reading part one of this title and thought that it was time to write part two because I am in a different place right now. You see there was something that I was looking at and watching recently (a soul-tie), but I’ve stopped watching the situation this last month. So as I read part one, I was thinking about what God as done since I wrote part one.

I remember so clearly, last year around Valentines Day, God sent me a very strong warning that if I did not fast and pray then, something was going to happen that would greatly affect my destiny.  Since I’ve learned the  hard way in the past, I obeyed God. I fasted that time and a few other times concerning this particular soul-tie and God stopped whatever it was from happening.  So I did my part.

The truth is, I really don’t know what is going on right now because I am not paying attention and there is no need to anymore. God showed me that season is up and watching, no longer serves a purpose (it just annoys me), so God said stop looking at it. But as I read part one of this post something did come to mind that is not so good for the parties involved.

You see when God says to let someone go, it really important to let them go totally and completely. I am not saying it’s easy, but it’s best to be obedient because if we are not, there will always be consequences. In the case of this soul-tie that I had been observing, the Lord showed me several dreams in which there would be a very bad ending to this thing and honestly, if  this is still going on, I can see why.

Coming out of something is not always easy, but if it’s online, it should be a breeze. Well, I did my part (prayer and fasting) and now someone has to walk it out, but the warning is, the longer it takes, the more of the possibility that it will have a very bad ending. Tell the person, this is not going to happen and then leave them alone.

God showed me this is necessary though (bad ending). Some patterns of behavior will never be broken until we suffer grave consequences. So in the long run, it will work out for the good of all involved. But it’s time for a complete break. Leading someone on is never good when you already know what God has said.

Love Series: The Deficiency

iron-deficiencyRecently, I had to take counsel about a matter I was concerned about. I have a friend who has formed a unusually strong attachment with someone online and honestly, I have been concerned about it. There’s been no meeting, but yet and still this bond seems impenetrable. Well God gave my counsellor some great words of wisdom.

The counsellor first mentioned that this bond was not normal (I explained the situation) and that the person involved (the one I was concerned about) has some sort of deficiency. As I listened I realize that this was the truth. You see God was letting me know that my friend was not complete inside and that is why they were susceptible to this luring in. It may have started out as ministry, but the motive was incorrect and it later turned into more.

So now what should my friend do? Well if you feel like you cannot imagine your life without someone (really?) and you have never even met them, that is not normal and it may be time to seek counsel. It’s time for God to deal with the deficiency.

The more I see this situation, the more I realize that it’s going to end ugly. There is no avoiding it. The strange thing, is I’m not mad. I have compassion for the person and I am motivated to pray for this bond to break. It serves no purpose, other than a hinderance to the Will of God, so it’s time for it to end.

Here is a warning though. I have lived through not wanting to, or being able to let something or someone go, If it’s time, (it is) God will help us and usually it doesn’t happen in a good way. Don’t make God rip it out your hands! But I think that is what is going to happen and I think that is the purpose of this all. God told me there was a purpose, but it was not marriage and it may be for a breaking. But have not fear. If God allows it, he has a reason.

Isaiah 58:6

King James Version (KJV)

Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?

Love Series: Breaking Soul-ties

If you are a Christian, I’m sure you have heard this term before. So what is a soul-tie? Soul-ties are bonds that are formed between two individuals. It’s based on the story of David and Jonathan’s souls being knit together in friendship.

There are many different kinds of soul-ties. There are friendship soul-ties, family soul-ties, and male/female soul-ties which includes marriage ties. Soul-ties are generally formed by spending time with someone. Soul-ties can be both emotional and physical. Physical ties are formed by having sex with someone.

I was recently reading where someone wrote that they felt an emotional soul-tie was stronger than a physical one. But it really doesn’t matter which is stronger. Sex creates a bond between people even if they are NOT emotionally connected. And the reason I know that is because if you are so disconnected, why do people keep going back to that same individual for sex? It is because they have a sexual soul-tie. And let’s be honest. A lot of ex girlfriends and boyfriends are still having sex. Even divorced couples sometimes still have sex. It’s because they are physically bonded.

The reason I am visiting soul-ties is because a family member of mine who is now married, went through an experience where the man who God told her was her husband was soul-tied to this other woman. Not a good way to have a relationship. It was very painful to her because she loved him and in a way he loved her too, but he was soul-tied to someone else. Through fasting and praying the “other woman” was finally extracted from his life and they got married and are very happily married to this day. But it wasn’t one of those magical “love stories”. She had to fight (in the spirit) to get the man who rightfully belonged to her.

To make a long story short, I had a dream that I would walk through exactly what my family member walked through and that is happening. Soul-ties take a while to break especially when people “proclaim” a lot of things and feed it and spend time with each other.

So what should you do, when you are dealing with a unhealthy, ungodly, or hindering soul-tie? I recommend prayer and fasting. God will indeed break the tie. But you also must be willing to allow things to run it’s course. Release it unto God knowing that God has everything under control. It may not feel good, but don’t you worry about a thing!

1 Samuel 18:1

Amplified Bible (AMP)

 1WHEN DAVID had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own life.
P.S. When I did a google search to find this scripture I was shocked at the number of websites in the search engine saying this relationship was a gay one (David and Jonathan). Nothing could be further from the truth. The bible is clear that David lusted so much after Bathsheba, that he had her husband killed to be with her. Those are not the actions of a gay man.
