A soul tie is a knitting together or uniting of one person’s soul to that of another person or various other people, it is when one person’s soul becomes tied to that of another. Sometimes it is referred to as ‘unholy alliances’ or ‘perverse relationships’
Some soul ties are good, others are godly, and others are ungodly. Soul ties approved by God represent the bonding together of people in Agape love. While good soul ties are founded on love, bad soul ties are founded on lust. Bad or ungodly soul ties are perversions of the good and godly. Whenever Satan gets the opportunity; he perverts what is pure.
How powerful is a soul tie church? Soul ties are so strong that they can bring either life or death, either blessing or curse. The Greek word for “joined” is SUZEUGNUMI” and means ‘to cleave, stick to, glue or cement. It can also be translated as “yoked together”
A soul tie happens when two people are “joined” together through: friendship, group fellowship/commitment, sexualunion – in and outside of marriage and Parent/child relationship
Firstly let us look at Friendship soul tie. Look at what the bible says in the book of I SAM 18:1 and it was so, when he had finished speaking to Saul that the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul” When we look at David and Jonathan we see a powerful soul tie, a Godly knitting together of two men’s souls that brought life and blessing. Jonathan willingly laid down his right to the throne for David. This was a pure soul tie based upon Agape love. DEUT 13:6 “If your brother,…your son or your daughter, the wife of your bosom, or your friend who is as your own soul, secretly entices you, saying, “Let us go and serve other gods,… you shall not consent to him or listen to him…” When someone whom you love very much, who is as your own soul, wants to lead you into sin, into doing anything that is ungodly, you must say no. This is a soul tie that will bring death. Even if you love your friend very much, do not agree when he or she tells you to sell your soul to the devil for money or political power and fame .that is why am saying Zambians should be careful and it’s better to keep your soul.
Group Fellowship is different with friendship soul tie. You could tell the difference when you look at ,ACTS 4:32 “Now the multitude of those who believed were of one heart and one soul;” People who fellowship in a group became one in soul – soul tied to each other. This can be good, or bad.
EPH 4:16 “From Him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does it’s work.” The Body of Christ is compared to the various parts of the human body. Good soul ties formed between these members are necessary to enable the Body of Christ to mature and fulfilit’s calling. Bad soul ties will oppose this growth in unity and try to cause division in the Body.
Now this third soul tie affects people’s behaviour .it is called Sexual Union .MATT 19:5 “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” God has ordained marriage and said that the two shall become one flesh, and thus a soul tie is formed. In marriage, this sexual union is an expression of God-approved love.
I Cor 6:16 “Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body?” Those who engage in a sexual union outside of marriage from an evil soul tie which perverts God’s purpose for marriage. These perverse soul ties are not only limited to those formed between people of the opposite sex, but also between those of the same sex.
ROM 1:26 “Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another.
An ungodly soul tie comes from an ungodly relationship. GEN 34:1 “Now Dinah…, went out to see the daughters of the land. And when Shechem…, saw her, he took her and lay with her, and violated her. His soul was strongly attracted to Dinah…” Although Shechem raped Dinah, their souls were knit together because the two became one flesh through the sexual union that took place.
A parent/child relationship is the last soul tie. Back to the bible in GEN 44:20 “… and his father loves him (Benjamin) (30) His (Jacobs’s) life is bound up in the lad’s life and his soul knit with the lad’s soul” Jacob’s love for Benjamin is an illustration of the good soul tie that exists between a parent and a child.
EPH 5:31 “… a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife…” This is not to be seen as breaking the relationship with the parents, but rather as a maturing of the parent/child relationship. Both parents should sever their soul-ties with their child in consideration of the marriage partner. If this is not done, that which was good and beneficial becomes bad and detrimental and a good soul tie becomes bad because of continued control and possessiveness.
Which is the strongest soul tie? The one formed through sexual union. Prov 6:32 “Whoever commits adultery with a woman lacks understanding; He who does so destroys his own soul.”
God very clearly points out to us that when we get united physically to another person outside of the marriage union, it can destroy our soul, which becomes knit to that of the other person. This does not apply only to adultery but to all forms of sexual promiscuity outside of marriage. When a person has had one or mare sexual partners, his/her soul is knit to each one of those partners, and transference of spirits may also have taken place.
Marriage is a one-time instituted covenant of God. Matt 19:6 “So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” A husband and wife are joined together and divorce violently rends the soul tie that God has created, causing pain, sorrow and trauma. Until the soul tie is completely broken, there will always be a longing for each other, that wanting of the other person.
Bible examples teach us that mourning the dead should be for a limited time only. When Jacob died, Josephmourned seven days (Gen 50:10) When Aaron died, Israel mourned for thirty days (Num 20:29)When Moses died, the Israelites mourned for thirty days (Deut 34:8)ECC 3:4 “a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance.” Prolonged mourning indicates that the soul tie has not been broken and the stress of extended grief may create an opportunity for spirits of sorrow, grief and loneliness to enter. Indeed Zambians should know the truth about the soul ties. Patterns of abuse through ungodly soul ties: Demonic strongholds and repetitive patterns of abuse from because of transference of spirits. When there has been an ungodly soul tie, a demonic stronghold can set itself up over the life of a person and this person will continually draw a certain kind of abuse to themselves for reasons unknown to them. Incest: When a member of the family – father, brother or grandfather, etc. Abuses a child, a pattern sets itself up and this abused child invariably becomes an abuser. Violence: A woman who divorces a violent man very often marries another violent man. Dominance: A dominated child will invariably marry someone who dominates them. God never made anyone to be dominated by anybody else. Manipulation: Husbands dominate wives and vice versa and people start living under constant manipulation (emotional blackmail). A manipulated person allows others to manipulate him/her because of this demonic stronghold in his/her life. Also: wife-beating, sexual harassment; seduction; rape; physical abuse; bitterness; verbal abuse; abnormal jealousy; sexual abuse; homosexuality, etc.
You may ask how I can break negative soul ties. Repent – even if it was done in ignorance. Ask the Lord to forgive you for every negative soul tie you have formed. Confess that Satan has no further legal claim against you. Declare that every negative soul tie that you have identified is now destroyed in the Name of Jesus. Command evil spirits associated with these negative soul ties to leave you in the Name of Jesus.
Negative soul ties are not formed only through sexual union, but also in friendships, wrong family relationships, wrong relationships in the Body of Christ, etc. Be specific when breaking soul ties – name each person by name and verbally renounce the soul tie with each one. The patterns of emotional, physical, sexual and verbal abuse must also be broken in the same way.
Keys to Freedom Zambia are to Deal with the past – allow God to remove the pain. As long as you hold on to the abuse of the past, it is going to oppress you. You cannot turn back the hands of time – you cannot change the past – not even God can, but He can heal you. Deal with the past and forget it.Sometimes it’s easier to deny than to resist – but you must resist to be free, because God cannot work in you as an individual, make you a whole human being and enable you to walk in the liberty that Jesus has called you to, until and unless you break soul ties and patterns of abuse.
Jesus died that you might have abundant life and while you’re soul tied and living under a pattern of abuse you won’t have abundant life.
Let the Lord show you areas in your life where you have been abused as a person, where certain expectations were placed upon you, and you started to operate in that expectancy over your life, where there are patterns that have operated, and where you’ve been soul tied to other people. Let the Holy spirit bring those things to your remembrance so that you can deal with it and be free.
