Soul Ties  

For a complete study on Soul Ties visit the www.b4prayer.org site


Deu 10:20 Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God; him shalt thou serve, and to him shalt thou cleave, and swear by his name.

1 Cor 6:17 But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

1 Cor 2:16 for who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

A soul tie is the knitting together of two souls that can either bring tremendous blessings in a Godly relationship or tremendous destruction when made with the wrong persons.

A soul tie in the Bible can be described not only by the word knit, but also by the word cleave, which means to bring close together, follow close after, be attached to someone, or adhere to one another as with glue.


GODLY SOUL TIES

  2 Cor 11:20 For ye suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take of you, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face.

1 Sam 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.

1 Sam 18:2 And Saul took him that day, and would let him go no more home to his father's house.

1 Sam 18:3 Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul.

David and Jonathan actually formed a covenant because they loved each other so deeply. Their souls were knit together (tied or joined together)

The stronger the bonding or soul ties between friends the deeper and more lasting the relationship is. The emotional and mental strengths of one sustain the other in times of adversity. (Difficulties or misfortune) and allows them to rejoice with the other in the time of triumph.

When love between friends is pure and not polluted by any selfish desire, the bond between them works well in their lives.

Jesus speaks of this kind of love in John 15:13 "Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends."  That is the kind of love Jonathan and David had, and that is why it was a Godly soul tie. Because of this type of Godly soul tie, it formed the basis for a good marriage and a enduring relationship.

In deep and pure friendships and relationships the two souls draw strength and encouragement from each other as well as security and love.

In order to have this kind of friendship, you have to very selective and get wisdom from God. The Holy Spirit will teach you how to have this kind of relationship. It takes people that have a pure and giving heart and puts their love in action. If you have a close friend in your life right now and they have these characteristics that is good. If they are selfish and controlling you need to pray and get the wisdom from above on what to do, because the friendship could become dangerous, because your souls are knit together, emotionally and this is not a Godly soul tie.

Eccl 4:9  Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

Eccl 4:10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

Eccl 4:11 again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?

Eccl 4:12  And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Mat 18:19 " Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven."

The early church in the book of acts was so explosive and experienced such power and the reason was they were unified.

Acts 4:32  And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.

Acts 4:33  And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.

Acts 4:34 Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold,

  UNGODLY SOUL TIES

While a soul tie will develop between any two people who are open to one another, the strength of those soul ties depends upon how deeply involved with another their heart becomes. You can become soul tied to family, friends, co-workers and the leadership you are under. Unity we have with others is an open expression of our soul ties.

Carefully examine our friends (male or Female) before it becomes a covenant or relationship, because people that come into our lives can influence the shaping of our lives and our walk with Jesus.

Check their motives, here are a few things to watch for.

1.  Is this person a compromising person or is it their way or no way.

2.  Are they self-centered?

3.  Do they have a giving spirit or do they always want to take?

4.  Are they kind, gentle and above all loving?

5.  Are they saved and walking with Jesus?

6.  Are they controlling or manipulative? Beware

When a person who is bonded to another is governed by impure motives or the desire for selfish gain, the soul tie between them can enable (make able) that selfish one to manipulate and abuse the other. A person can actually control another through soul ties, because the mind of the two are open to one another.

Rom 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

Ungodly soul ties can potentially establish if the relationship is not under the Lordship of Christ.

God demands first place in our hearts, spouses are to be second, followed by children, family, friends and associates.

In ungodly relationships these soul ties may place us in emotional and mental bondage to others and causing us to do and say things to our own hurt.

Even in seemingly good relationships ungodly soul ties can develop if these relationships

Are not in divine order. When you get married you must break the soul ties with the parents.

Ungodly soul ties can potentially establish if the relationship is not under the Lordship of Christ.

God demands first place in our hearts, spouses are to be second, followed by children, family, friends and associates.

When our strongest soul tie is to God, there is a divine covering and protection that will enable us to withstand forming ungodly soul ties. The Holy Ghost.

Isa 54:5  For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called.

  Sexual Soul Ties

  Since the sexual union of marriage ties two souls as one, what do you think happens if a person commits fornication or adultery with another person?

Outside of the marriage. Actually, your soul becomes mysteriously knit and tied to the other person also. They cleaved together just as in marriage. The soul ties formed through illicit sexual involvement can be as strong and binding as those formed through the marriage covenant.

Gen 34:1 And Dinah the daughter of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob, went out to see the daughters of the land.

Gen 34:2  And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her.

Gen 34:3  And his soul clave unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spake kindly unto the damsel.

These scriptures give an illustration of how fornication and immorality form soul ties

Actually Shechem did not love Dinah he just lusted for after he had raped her. Gen 34:8  And Hamor communed with them, saying The soul of my son Shechem longeth for your daughter: I pray you give her him to wife. Sexual involvement can form such entangling tentacles of soul ties that it is extremely hard to break off the relationship.

God designed the universe to function with natural and spiritual laws that bring freedom when obeyed, but bondage and destruction when broken and violated. Just as two souls can be knit or made to cleave together in a covenant relationship, they can also be tied or knit together to form bondage and enslavement. Sexual union was ordained by God to make two marriage partners one flesh before God, but promiscuous premarital and extramarital affairs can mysteriously tie ones soul to many partners.


SOUL TIES Part 2

God designed the universe to function with natural and spiritual laws that bring freedom when obeyed, but bondage and destruction when broken and violated. (Blessing and Cursing)

Two souls can be knit or made to cleave together in a covenant relationship, they can also be tied or knit together to form bondage and enslavement.

Sexual union was ordained by GOD to make two marriage partners one flesh before GOD, but promiscuous premarital affairs and extramarital affairs can mysteriously tie ones soul to many partners.

We just donít have any conception of  promiscuity ( sex) outside of marriage scatters their souls and destroys their ability to commit to one partner.

Prov 5:15 Drink water from your own cistern, running waters from your own well.

Prov 5:17 Let them be yours alone, never to be shared with strangers.

Prov 5:18 May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.

Prov 5:19 A loving doe, a graceful deer-- may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be captivated by her love.

It is very important that married couples keep their sexual life to satisfaction, because if not the other may become strongly tempted to seek sexual fulfillment elsewhere. Remember if you are your spouse become tempted and start thinking about a picture will develop in your mind if you think on it enough. Eventually it will manifest.

1 Cor 7:5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. KJV.

1 Cor 7:5  Do not deprive each other except by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. NIV

Mat 5:27  "You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery.'

Mat 5:28  But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman  lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. NIV

Matt 5:27  "You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery.'

Mat 5:28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. KJV

Prov 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

2 Cor 10:5  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

2 Cor 10:6 And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

If you get into an affair you suffer more than you imagine.

1.     You will eventually start feeling guilty after the newness wears off and the flesh is satisfied

2.      You have committed adultery and take the chance of losing your spouse.

3.      Your soul has now become tied and scattered, causing confusion and strife

1 Cor 6:16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh."

1 Cor 6:17 But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.

1 Cor 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. KJV

1 Cor 6:17  But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. KJV

You may be involved or thinking of becoming involved in a sexual affair now. DONĒT, you may make all kind of excuses on why you should.

Here are some common excuses that people use to justify what they are doing, but do not fall in the trap of deception

1: We are in love and it wonít hurt anything because we are going to be married someday.

2: He said it would be ok if we did just this once and we will wait until we are married to do it again.

4.      I wonít think badly of you, we are meant to be together.

5.      God wonít mind because we are going to get married

If you are already married here are some of the lies the devil can throw at you.

1.      My husband doesnít love me any more and our sexual life is the worst

2.      If I have a one night affair, no one will know   GOD DOES

3.      I will get back at him and he wonít know the difference.

God says it is a sin and it will bring eventual destruction and not: blessings God never makes exceptions to his laws for you or anyone else.

A relationship began in righteous and holy actions will often bring forth blessed and holy branches, on the other hand, a relationship begun in sin and fornication will many times bring forth-evil branches and fruits. This could include adulterous cheating, divorce and even children that indulge in immortality.

Prov 5:20 And why wilt thou, my son, be ravished with a strange woman, and embrace the bosom of a stranger?

Prov 5:21  For the ways of man are before the eyes of the LORD, and he pondereth all his goings.

Prov 5:22 His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.

The consequences of a casual affair can be harmful and enduring. The soul ties formed can actually bind a person for life. The Word says ( Rom 8:15  For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father."

God has so built every woman that the first man who has sex with her takes a form of dominion over her. Gen 3:16 Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.

Her human spirit and soul is built to respond to the man by nurturing him, supplying affection to him and being that mans fountain of satisfaction to him all through his life

God made woman to develop a longing desire for their first lover (supposedly their husband) Read Gen: 3:16 again.

These scriptures are warnings to women:

2 Tim 3:4 Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;

2 Tim 3:5 having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

2 Tim 3:6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, KJV

2 Tim 3:3  without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,

2 Tim 3:4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God--

2 Tim 3:5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.

2 Tim 3:6 They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, NIV

The dominion a soul tie gives a man over his lover is often so binding that he can insult and mistreat her but she seems helplessly enslaved to him. Many women will tolerate all kinds of abuse and they wonít understand why: They end up hating themselves, because they donít understand about soul ties. Whenever you hate yourself it is hard to give real love or receive real love.

 

SCATTERED SOULS

People that have formed soul ties with many people through fornication and promiscuity, their souls have become fragmented and scattered among all their sexual partners.

If you are unable to give yourself fully to your mate (husband) it is because your thoughts and emotions are being continually drawn back to their past lovers. This is also adultery in your heart.

If a woman has sexual relations with several men, her spirit and soul seek out every one of them. Her spirit is scattered and torn apart.

If you have ever been raped, but yet you find yourself thinking or desiring the one that raped you, it is because the two souls have knit together.

A manís spirit is so built that for each woman he enters his spirit is built to find, protect, bless and nurture and provide for that woman. Guys have you been divorced and remarried, but you still seem to want to protect or take care of your ex-wife?

Prov 6:27  Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?

Prov 6:28  Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned?

Prov 6:29 So he that goeth in to his neighborís wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent.

Prov 6:30 Men do not despise a thief, if he steals to satisfy his soul when he is hungry

Prov 6:31 But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house.

Prov 6:32 But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.

1 Cor 6:18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

1 Cor 6:19  What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

People that have been promiscuous, their souls are not only drawn to all their former lovers, but when they marry they often have sexual and communication problems with their mates. They are unable to be sexually satisfied by their marriage partner because they suffer from a scattered soul and cannot share themselves fully with their mate. They often seek satisfaction, not only with multiple partners, but also through experimentation with bizarre forms of sex that may eventually lead to perversion.

1 Cor 6:16  Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh."

1 Cor 6:17  But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.

1 Cor 6:18  Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.

If soul ties have not been broken in your life, here are some pointers.

1.You had no knowledge or understanding of soul ties.

2;you have never dealt with getting rid of your past.

3: you have not let go of emotional attachments, memories and fantasies.

Multiple soul ties will weaken your character, your will, your emotions and your mind to the point that a decision to be free is difficult to make.

Prov 6:32 but whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul.

Lust and sin are gratifying for the moment, but a person always pays later in shame, guilt, humiliation, and anger towards God, sorrow and torment. Sometimes we donít see that we are involved in those things because of denial. We tell ourselves that there is nothing in our past to deal with and we donít want to change. Fear of change keeps you in bondage and fear is not of the Lord. Years of sin have weakened our character to the point of destroying the desires for good and making it difficult to change.

There is HOPE (blueprint, picture) and that is Jesus. If you make him the Lord of your life and serve Him with all your heart, you can and will be set free if you believe and receive. You can be set totally free if you allow God to set you free, but He gives us a choice. He wonít make us do anything we do not want to do.

John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed

Mark 11:24  Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Mark 11:25  And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

Before you pray the prayer below, please take a few moments to forgive all that has hurt you in any way, whether it be mentally or physically. Even though you do not think that they deserve forgiveness, you have to do it to receive your forgiveness. We did not deserve forgiveness from the Father, but His grace, mercy and His love for us was enough.

 

LET US PRAY IN FAITH, RECEIVING

 

Father, in the name of JESUS, I submit my soul, my desires and my emotions to your

Spirit. I confess, as sin, all my promiscuous, premarital sexual relationships and all sexual relationships outside of marriage. I confess all my ungodly spirit, soul, and body ties as sin. I thank you for forgiving me and cleansing me right now!

ďFather, thank you for giving me the keys of your kingdom, the keys of spiritual authority. What I bind is bound and what I loose is loosed. In Jesus name, I ask you to loose me from all soulish ties to past partners and ungodly relationships. Please uproot all the tentacles of sexual bondage, of emotional longings and dependencies, and enslaving thoughts. I bind, renounce and resist any evil spirits that have reinforced those soul ties or may have been transferred to me through evil associations.

Please cleanse my soul and help me to forget all illicit unions so that I am free to give my soul totally to my mate. Father, I receive your forgiveness for all past sex sins. I believe I am totally forgiven. Thank you for remembering my sins no more. Thank you for cleansing me from all unrighteousness. I commit myself to you By your grace, please keep me holy in my spirit, soul, and body. I praise you. In Jesus name. AMEN.

I have a personal testimony on deliverance of soul ties and I have worked with women in a ladies Hope group and have witnessed their deliverance. They are very real and can be emotionally destructive. My heart really longs to see people set free from these soul ties.

If there are times that you seem to feel like you donít know who you are and going in so many different directions, well you probably are soul tied.

Always remember that : John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Yes God did that just for you, because He loves you no matter what!!!!!!!!
