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.
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.
