The Truth About Soul Ties

What Is A Soul Tie?

A soul tie is exactly what it sounds like, the tie of souls in the spirit realm. 

Why this topic?
Honestly, I've been studying this for some time (a couple years off and on) and I feel equipped to write about it. Also, I don't want you all going into 2016 not understanding soul ties on a deeper level (there may be some you need to renounce before the new year).

Does the bible talk about soul ties?
Of course the bible does, but it doesn't address soul ties using the verbiage and dialogue that we do today, but it does talk about the knitting together of souls and becoming one flesh by the way of sexual intercourse. 

Do I have to have sexual intercourse to create a soul tie?
Absolutely....NOT and I'm going to explain it in detail providing you with sound scripture!! Because every time I've mentioned soul ties, people think fornication, which isn't always the cast. There are few type of soul ties, which I will inform you of in this post. Here we go, PLEASE STICK AROUND!!! (I want you to be well informed)

David and Jonathan
1 Samuel 18:1 says "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."

Jonathan was a good friend to David, he loved him as much as he loved himself. 
This scripture clearly tells us that Jonathan and David were tied together via their souls. 

Later in 1 Samuel 18:3-4 it tells us that "Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul. 4 And Jonathan stripped himself of the robe that was upon him, and gave it to David, and his garments, even to his sword, and to his bow and to his girdle."

COVENANT = an agreement
Jonathan made a covenant with David, because he had agape (sacrificial) love for him. He took off his garments and handed them to David proving his loyalty to him in a time of need. Jonathan was Davids, ace coon boon, ride or die, he was about that life, done for the cause and I know you have friends like that!! People that you know will have your back through thick and thin, those that support you, and would be willing to take the clothes off of their back and give them to you! People that are willing to give you their last just so they don't have to see you go withoutThose are the soul ties we need!! GOOD, FRUITFUL, HEALTHY soul ties. 

BAD SOUL TIE: Let me be VERY clear when I say this, a bad soul tie can be established via a friend or ANYTHING for that matter; when you begin to obsess over your friend or celebrity...you must have everything they have, want to be just like them, are going to great lengths to be in their presence (neglecting your responsibilities) and can't stop thinking about them and agree with everything they do and say. That is when a bad soul tie has been established. 

Words, promises, vows
Proverbs 18:21 says "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof."
In a previous post I stressed the importance of words and the power thereof. (click to read: Words Have Power). And as cliche as it may sound our word is our bond (literally) because Numbers 30:2 says "if a man vow unto the Lord, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth. 

A lot of times we say certain things out of our mouth without thinking of the consequences of some of the words we speak. We make agreements with people when we are in friendships/relationships not thinking that when we "want" out of those friendships/relationship we are still bonded to those persons via our souls then we wonder why the heck we can't stop thinking, wanting, and longing to be with/around that person.....

It's because of those word agreements, vows, promises you made to that person saying things such as "I'll be with you forever" "I'll never let you go" "I need you" "I can't live without you" and even thinking these things can be dangerous "For as he thinks in his heart, so is he..." Proverbs 23:7

YES! I know this is probably too deeeeeeeeep for you but this is the truth of the matter. 

SEXUAL Soul Ties:
Fornication & Adultery
FIRST we must talk about the oneness of marriage, Genesis 2:24 says "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be ONE FLESH" (Godly soul tie)
Meaning that because they have such a intimate love and are sexually active their souls have now become ONE! They are connected via souls and are to be connected in every way possible: intellectually, spiritually, emotionally, and financially. 

1 Corinthians 6: 15-16 says "15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not! 16 Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her?For “the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.”

ONE FLESH; this type of connection is to only happen when in marriage, but due to fornication and adultery people are walking around connected to multiple souls. Every time you have sex with someone out side of marriage you take on a part of their soul as do you and every other person that you have ever slept with. It's DEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP, I know!

Let Us Pray
Father God, I thank you for the Word that is still living and still speaking in a world full of distractions. I lift up your sons and daughters to you. I ask that you would give them wisdom to discern every relationship and person that wants to connect to them in this season. I ask that you would sift every attack of the enemy that tries to come to be a distraction in their life. I speak against the unhealthy soul ties that have been formed and I tell them to flee from their heart, mind, and soul! in the name of Jesus Christ! I renounce every word agreement, vow, promise, and commitment that they have made that is holding them hostage to the agreements that have been released into the atmosphere! I ask that you would teach them how to let go and stay free. Show them there value and worth. Help them realize that you never met for them to be bond, that's why you sent your precious Son that died on Calvary. Thank you for the blood that covers a multitude of sins and makes them white as snow and born again. My God you are amazing, thank you for simply being a ruler over all things and because they are a part of you they have victory over unhealthy soul ties. I ask that you would bring people in their lives that would be a support system, accountability partner, positive, loving, honest, trustworthy, and authentic!! We bless your name O God because you alone are worthy!! It is in Jesus Christ name we pray, AMEN!!!
