Soul Ties Part Two: Breaking the Bonds

Soul Ties Part Two: Breaking the Bonds

Last week, we discussed blood covenants and soul ties formed out of operating outside God’s perimeter of marriage. It is good to note that it is possible tie oneself up even with words. Proverbs 18:21 talks about the power in the tongue and the words. So use your words wisely. The promises people make to each other, the guarantees we give, do have power. Power to hold us accountable.

When life seems unfair and you feel defeated, it is always wise to do a spiritual checkup and align your soul with God’s purpose and plan for you. It’s prudent to seek help from those who are able to teach you about spiritual principles that are operating in your life. No one knows it all. That’s why we all need to be learners before the Holy Spirit.

Often ministers have encounters with people whoare struggling in their marriages. A woman once approached a minister at a prayer meeting, weeping bitterly over her marriage which was about to be broken. She had been married only for a year now, but everything was dark. The minister, being aware about soul ties and the oppression it brings to a person, asked her about her pre-marital relationship. After some hesitation, she admitted to it and said that she was in a relationship for 6 months, which she later broke off. Unbeknownst to her, her thoughts, mind and emotions were still being influenced by her previous relationship. The promises she made then, began to negatively affect her marriage. She needed to learn to pray, to trust in Jesus and surrender to God. The minister prayed for her in Jesus name and taught her to pray and she was comforted. She was able to complete bury the past and its influence over her. In a matter of months, the relationship was saved.

The past cannot be ignored. It can’t be hidden from God. The scars and the brokenness need the touch of Christ. Only through the redeeming blood of Christ, can we forgive and forget about things and people that previously held influence over our life. For the blameless, innocent, precious blood of Christ can cover every humiliation, every shame, guilt and fear. The God who cares for you has a plan for you that’s much better than your past.

 Matthew 6:21 talks about “where the treasure of a man is, there is his heart as well.” If you keep your treasure in anyone else other than Jesus, you are running a risk of your treasure being stolen. Because the thief comes to steal. (John 10:10)

For those of you, who need freedom from soul-ties, from past mistakes and heartbreaks, SPEAK THIS PRAYER ALOUD AND WITH YOUR HEART.

Father in the name of Jesus, I take control and break every ungodly tie that is holding me captive. I forgive every person that hurt me and seared my soul. Let your grace enable me to completely forget. All the authority that my past had on me, I take it back. My past shall not rule me but Jesus. I release the freedom of Christ in every area of my life. I shall no more be a prisoner of despair and disappointment, but a prisoner of hope as your word says in Isaiah. Lord, I declare your blood up on my emotional health and relationships. I ask for godly relationships in my life. In Jesus name, Amen!!

Soul Ties: Gaining the world only to Lose Your Soul (Part one)

Soul Ties: Gaining the world only to Lose Your Soul (Part one)

As the name suggests, a soul-tie is when the soul of an individual is inter twined with another individual. Soul tie made with the wrong person(s) is a deadly situation that leads to a plethora of complications and unnecessary damage. People can be in a soul tie with anyone. And what makes it so dangerous is that the individual is unaware of its consequences. Hosea 4:6 says that God’s people are being destroyed because of lack of knowledge. Ignorance is a very big risk in modern day Christianity. Let’s dive a little deeper into the subject.

Have you ever wondered why Jesus had to shed his blood on that cross? Why couldn’t He have chosen a simpler form of death that would have been less excruciating?

Deuteronomy 12:23 and Leviticus 17:11 makes it clear that God forbade his people to eat blood in the meat because blood carries life and on the altar, the blood is for remission of sin, returning man into covenant with God.

In other words, Jesus made a blood covenant with us by shedding the last drop. He had to give His life which was in the blood to redeem our lives. The blood covenant is the strongest covenant ever formed. In the olden days, two allies would make a small cut on their hands and mix their blood. It was a sign that now they are not two but one blood, that their lives are now binding and intermingled with each other. When you enter into a sexual relationship, you enter into a blood covenant with the other person. Your life is now intermingled with your partner. Such a powerful bond becomes dangerous when one enters into such relations outside the perimeter of marriage, which is ordained by God.

We are living in a very volatile space in today’s world. Our colleges and work places are often under the influence of things that do not follow godly principles. It’s very easy to follow their footsteps and go down the road which is contrary to the nature of God. But the risk is huge. It’s a common practice now a days to have multiple partners with whom soul ties are created. Suppose, a boy and girl comes together before marriage, they chase this lifestyle of fulfilling their own carnal desires. But what happens is that they begin being governed by each other in various ways. We can see jealousy, insecurity, fear and overbearing tendencies make its way into their lives.

2 Samuel 13 tells a story about Amnon and Tamar. If you go on reading that story, after having a sexual encounter with Tamar, the Bible says that Amnon hated Tamar. The same girl for whom he fell head over heels for, is now the object of his hate and disgust. A soul tie operates powerfully in each person.

Truth doesn’t change over time. Lessons about the spiritual realm might sound like old fashioned notions to young ears, but that doesn’t make it irrelevant. The word of God reveals to us the foundational principles that this world has been built on. The Holy Spirit gives us the strength and wisdom to walk in God’s path. Until we are delivered from influences on our soul, we will remain hindered from discerning the direction of the Holy Spirit. The Bible comforts us, teaches us, and enlightens us but the Word also warns us. We are in a fallen world. Nothing here is as it was meant to be. It’s been perverted from its original purpose. None of it is worth gaining at the cost of our soul. But we can be made right with God through Christ Jesus. When Jesus shed his blood on the cross, God raised the value of each of us to be worthy of eternal, abundant life.  Our soul is now worth the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. So treat your soul as the precious treasure of God, purchased by the blood of Christ. Guard your soul from outside influence.

Philipians 4:7 says “..the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Make no mistake about it, the only place your soul is safe is in the hands of the one who died to redeem it!!
