"Cutting Off Ungodly Soul Ties"

BY SHOFARSOUND

Are you tied to an ungodly ministry that promotes false teaching?

Are you tied up in an illicit sexual relationship?

Are you tied up to a dead traditional church?

Are you tied up in unfruitful carnal friendships?

Are tied and tangled up to a immoral pastor?

Maybe you need to pull out the “Sword of the Spirit” and cut off some ungodly soul ties!

Some people may ask the question “What is a soul tie?” A soul tie is something that has been sanctioned  and ordained by God. Good healty soul ties are the bonds between husbands and wives, children and parents, friends, and Christians with one another.

However, unhealthy soul ties are ones formed outside the will of God and unsanctioned by the Lord. Ties can be formed through sexual perversion(fornication, adultery, homosexuality, pornography, ect.), evil companions(associations, communion), perverted family ties, or religious and traditional.

The story of Shechem and Dinah in Genesis 34:1-4, shows that after Shechem raped Dinah his soul clave, or became tied to Dinah (Genesis 34:3). This soul tie was formed through lust and rape.

Solomon is a prime example that sexual perversion soul ties can have destructive elements. Although he was King of Israel  and had a great amount of wisdom and wealth, Solomon’s issue was that he married women who worshipped idol gods. 1 Kings 11:1-2 says,

“But King Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites; of the nations concerning which the Lord said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.”

Solomon’s soul was tied to all of these women.  In short, he was caught up and tied up. He took on the strange ways and served the idols gods of each woman with which he slept.  He was also double-minded.  He loved God, but served his strange wives’ idol gods. This shows that not only single people can get caught up in sexual perversion soul ties, but married people also.

Ungodly soul-ties are not just delegated to sexual perversion ties.  They can also be formed through evil companionships, through those with whom you associate.  Amos 3:3, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” 1 Corinthians 15:33 says, “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupts good manners.”

The sixteenth chapter of Numbers speaks about Korah’s rebellion.  Dathan, Abriam, and two hundred fifty men tried to rise up against Moses and Aaron’s authority. All of these men were tied to the kindred spirits of rebellion and  anti-authority of Korah.   By associating themselves with Korah the men were corrupted  by rebellion and paid a heavy price of being put to death. Proverbs 22:24-25 says, “Make no friendship with an angry man; and furious man thou shalt not go; lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.” These men learned Korah’s ways and their souls were ensnared because of their association with him.

People can become snared into religious/traditional soul ties. A good example of this is King Saul’s children Jonathan and Michal. Jonathan was David’s best friend and saw the anointing was upon David’s ministry.  He also knew that his father King Saul was not the annointed one.  King Saul represented dead religion or tradition.    However, instead of leaving his father’s dead ministry and following the flow of God through David’s ministry, Jonathan  died in religious tradition because his soul was never cut loose from his father’s dead and dried up ministry.  Michal, Jonathan’s sister,  was married to David.   But unfortunately, she  had her father, King Saul’s spirit.  In 2 Samuel 6 when the ark of the covenant was coming into Jerusalem, David broke out in a praise.   Michal despised David and the move of God. She was tied up in religious tradition, missed the move of God, and was unable to produce children.  Religious tradition will will keep you barren.

Overall, we need to examine any ungodly soul ties we may have  and ask the Holy Spirit to help us break any ties that will prevent us from going higher in God.  Let us treasure the God-ordained soul ties that we have formed over the years: husbands and wives, parents and children, friends, and saints.  Be blessed in God and let your passion be in Jesus.

  1. SHOFARSOUND ~ Thank you for such a timely word.

    This analogy is profound ….

    “King Saul represented dead religion or tradition. However, instead of leaving his father’s dead ministry and following the flow of God through David’s ministry, Jonathan died in religious tradition because his soul was never cut loose from his father’s dead and dried up ministry.”

    “Michal despised David and the move of God. She was tied up in religious tradition, missed the move of God, and was unable to produce children. Religious tradition will will keep you barren.”

    Timely article, but we must remember the scripture tells us to remember our traditions for some of those traditions were orchestrated by God to give us balance and a sense of purpose. But however all too often, we place our traditions over the plan and purposes of God because we do not use discernment, which causes us to lose true understanding of the particular tradition. I’m reminded of the great revival occuring during the time of Hezekiah, and some of the northern tribes came to partake, but were rebuked, because traditionally they had to be ceremonial clean, but when the king inquired of God, this tradition was set to the side, because although they were not ceremonial clean and prepared, but there hearts were right.

  3. Tony I agree with you some traditions are fine and even right and needed. But we run a grave risk placing any tradition above the plan and purpose of God.

  4. Matthew 15:6 says, “And honour not his father or his mother, he shall be free, Thus have ye made the commandment of God of none effect by your traditions.” We don’t want to invalidate the commandments of God for traditions and peoplle sake like the Pharisees were doing in the days of Jesus.

    Colossians 2:8 says, ” Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”

  5. Bro. Shofarsound,

    I hope you didn’t take my comment to indicate I was against what you were saying in your blog, totally on the contrary my friend. I’m sure you read my comments closely and w/an open mind, I simply gave a point of view according to scripture we know to be true. It is we as human beings who taint such things for example the commandments of God especially given in the OT were good, but as you indicated w/the above scripture it is man who tainted it by adding to it and taking from it, to suite our own purpose and to keep each other in bondage. So I simply wanted to imply traditions within themselves are not bad, it is what we do w/them because ignorance, abuse and selfishness that is. I replied to your above comment this way, because I thought you were angry w/me but if I am wrong in my assumption forgive me and disregard.

  6. @ Bro. Tony Davis, no I wasn’t upset or offended. You were making a valid point. If something is ever off or unsound in my articles, please bring it to my attention. I’m not to prideful to take correction or constructive critism.

    If I did have a problem would have address you personally. I put those scriptures in my comments because it fit the abuse of traditions making the Word of non effect.

    Keep on commenting Bro. Davis, I enjoy your insights.

  7. Excellent write. Its amazing how many of us overlook the serious spiritual ramifications of our actions in the natural. The natural world shows the consequences and affects of what happens in the spiritual world. Too many don’t realize just how serious of an impact their actions and associations have on their spiritual lives and on those around them. Many create these ungodly soul ties which often manifest in generational curses and they are often clueless as to how such a thing could have gotten started. Great use of Solomon.
