I alluded to the issue of soul ties earlier this week when I posted in the article “Sexuality, a blessing or curse.”  The Urban dictionary defines ‘soul ties as a spiritual or emotional connection you have to someone after being intimate with them, usually engaging in sexual intercourse. To the point that when you want to be rid of them from your mind and your life, even when you are far away from them and out of their presence you still feel as if they are a part of you… Causing you to feel un-whole…’. Soul tie is a God idea, when carried out per his instructions it leads to mutually beneficial relationships. It was intended to bring blessing and joy into our lives. Every person is a living soul “and the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul “Genesis 2:7.

 God made Eve to be a companion to her husband, in God’s kingdom two is better than one. In our own relationships I’m sure we are all grateful for our spouses and children etc, I’m lumping here all human relationships .They help to bring meaning, provide comfort and sustain us as we journey through life. We have soul- ties with all these individuals, but like everything else God has made beautiful the interloper comes and destroys or changes things around. Its Satan counterfeit ties that are running amok and trying to destroy all that is beautiful in the world, Satan cannot succeed if we don’t corporate with him. Mankind has to stop seeing each other as the enemy and unite to expose the real enemy.

If you read the Bible you won’t find the term soul tie but instead you’ll come across choices as knit together, one with another, one flesh, and members of one another and so on. Essentially they all mean the same thing soul tie.The Hebrew word for “knitted”: means “to weave.” Other times, the word is translated “to cover, screen, or protect.” Knitting also means companion. As I said previously two are better than one, God in his wisdom instituted the concept of two becoming one. Joining together has certain privileges and benefits a union is a strong bond; the Bible enforces this principle throughout the scriptures. Deuteronomy 32:30 “one have chased a thousand, and two have put ten thousand to flight. 

 Remember we are all living souls so all our relationships involve some association of the soul. I’m writing on spiritual matters and we are getting to the bit on sexual soul ties but I would be remiss if I don’t shed light on the other soul tie connections. The soul is from God, so it is a conduit or pathway to spiritual things. We know that there is the negative or positive spiritual(or supernatural. When we are living according to God’s divine agenda and obedient to his word it’s more difficult for the enemy to enter. The Christian is not exempt from demonic manipulation unless a person adheres to Godly instruction he is just as open to attack as the ungodly. One’s will, mental, spiritual and emotional capacity is tied into our soul. We are made in the image and likeness of God and were created to interact with our creator and the rest of his subjects.

Examples of Soul connections or ties:

As a group of people

Judges 20:11 “So all the men of Israel were gathered against the city knit together as one man” (having one common purpose).

Romans 12:5 “For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another” ( the body of Christ, one people) 

Through friendships

1st Samuel 18:1 “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.” 

Brothers and sisters within the Body –

Colossians.2:2 “That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love.”

A man and his wife

Genesis 4:1 “And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived” (One of the most binding ties, its core is spiritual in nature but many enter into this relationship unawares of its significance).

Parent and children ties-

Genesis 37:34 “Then Jacob tore his clothes, put on sackcloth and mourned for his son many days.  All his sons and daughters came to comfort him, but he refused to be comforted. “No,” he said, “I will continue to mourn until I join my son in the grave.” So his father wept for him.

(Parents are the first individuals that nurture and love children. Our formative years are spent in the care of these people who love and teach us the basics and foundational requirements for living. Everything else we learn in life is an additional layer. Loss and death involves more than grief, it is the actual severing of a soul tie hence its painful nature. Divorce also presents with the same implications because the souls are so intertwined with each other damage is done to the lives when they break apart).

Bonding is happening at many levels, these are just a few, and many types exist in other social contexts and institutions. Soul ties can be polluted and become toxic; if all was well we’d all be free of problems. There are many examples of destructive soul ties and many Biblical examples proving this issue has been prevalent with mankind for generations. They persist largely because of ignorance, our careless and selfish natures and primarily because of our lose lifestyles. Many people are in bondage today and it’s by prayer and sometimes fasting God can and will intervene to break the ungodly soul ties. This is too wide a topic to get into all at once so I’m focusing on the sexual aspect of the ties.

Caribbean, the Caribbean Sea, more than 7,000 ...

You know in the Caribbean we say “old fire stick easy to catch.” What it means is that previous lovers make up back after some time apart from each other. Sometimes whole families are caught up in the tangled mess as the soul ties are so strong. It literally forces the couple involved to leave their inhibitions behind and their morals to fly out the window. Their sense of right and wrong is severely impacted, and many wonder how they could be so callous. Considering they have children and separate lives, but unbeknownst to onlookers these men and women are tied together or bound in the spiritual realm. It’s an unseen bond but its binding nevertheless. How did this occur? The moment a man enters into a woman’s body he is connected to her on many levels. He has entered into her spirit and she, his because their sexual organs are gateways, to their spirit man. I’m here to debunk the theory today that ‘old fire stick catching easy.’ What’s catching old affairs and bringing them back together is the old soul tie that has not been dealt with and broken off.

Intellect:

The power of knowing as distinguished from the power to feel and to will: the capacity for knowledge. The capacity for rational or intelligent thought especially when highly developed.

 

Where the things of God are concerned most of us rely on intellect alone. God is bigger than the sum of our brains, if he designed it, he must be of higher intelligence than his creation. First and foremost God is a spirit. A major characteristic of spirit beings is that they operate largely unseen. It stands to reason then if we can’t see them, there are ways they communicate with us. Humans are types of beings, so are animals and angels, all created by the same God (see the account in the book of Genesis). God speaks primarily to mans hearts, there are many reasons why we don’t hear him. In the gospel of Mark 4:14:20 the Parable of the sower explains to us why it is that many do not hear the inner voice of God.

 “The sower (God) sows the word. These are the ones on the path where the word is sown: when they hear, Satan immediately comes and takes away the word that is sown in them. And these are the ones sown on rocky ground: when they hear the word, they immediately receive it with joy. But they have no root, and endure only for a while; then, when trouble or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately they fall away. And others are those sown among the thorns, these are the ones who hear the word but the cares of the world, and the lure of wealth, and the desire for other things come in and choke the word and it yields nothing. And these are the ones sown on the good soil: they hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirty and sixty and a hundred-fold.”

God can use anything to speak to a person who wants to hear him, he is almighty God he commands the winds, the seas and all his creation. In the Bible he has used talking animals, a flaming bush, angels, visions, and a “still small voice” to speak to his people. The heart is the center of the intellect, it consists of one’s intellect, emotion and volition (the act of will).Many of us search for God with our brain power alone. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts” Isaiah 55:9 says the Lord.

Mans wisdom rejects God, to get God we have to allow our other senses be open to receive him. God laughs at our wisdom, the Bible says in 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12

 “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” God allows those that don’t believe to carry on in their unbelief. He allows their behavior to catch up with them; sometimes they perish other times he intervenes. God wants our hearts and minds to be in fellowship with him, our brain (the mind) receives the word and it transforms our hearts to receive. Intellect is inherently fleshy or of the flesh, God has to speak and change our hearts by his process. When we accept Jesus the old man dies, we become new creatures and it’s this new man that accepts God transforming power in his life. This man is our spirit man; fleshy man will never get God. I believe Eve warred with her spirit. She had been preoccupied in her senses with the fruit she should not have been longing at. If her flesh had been in subjection to her spirit she would not have blundered. Apostle Paul said it best Romans 7:15-19 “ For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good. Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.”

The flesh wars with spirit when the spirit man is not in control, of the individual. The issue Paul is addressing is the fight with sin and wrongdoing; we are not able to overcome on our own but with God’s grace we can that is why we need him. What the fall or sin did was to cut us off or severe us from the power source. Satan interrupted what God was doing with mankind through Adam and Eve so he had to send Jesus to finish his work; Jesus is part of the Godhead (Three bare witness in heaven).God is a trinity, and he made man a triune being also because he was created in the image of God. God really loves mankind wow…! “God said, Let us make man in Our image” Genesis 1:26. The Holy Trinity is depicted in the Apostle Paul’s benediction “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen” 2 Corinthians 13:14.Further reference of the Trinity spoken by Jesus “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” Matthew 28:19. “I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” 1 Thessalonians 5:23.Created in the image of God, man is likewise a trinity. He has a spiritual nature that is separate and distinct from the body in which it dwells.

Jesus came to reconcile man to his SUPERNATURAL capacity and giftings. He taught and showed by example the power of the supernatural, in the multiplication of the bread and fishes and turning water into wine. Jesus as part of the Godhead is the bread of life. If you ask him, he won’t refuse you. God hides himself for many reasons, mankind can’t handle the full manifestation of the spirit of God, it is too much. Put away your books meet God in his preordained meeting place, location the church and let him talk to your heart then we can compare notes. Have you seen tumors disappear, diseases healed, lives spared in accidents tell me your stories of God miraculous working power.
I’ve seen the operation of the spirit in churches and people are scared, well the men of old really walked with God they feared and revered him. The church wants revival, God has to manifest in such a powerful way now because of the things we have done and the evil strongholds that need breaking. What I really wanted to get at today is that many individuals who say there is no God has only studied one aspect of mans tripartite nature. The Bible is the foremost authority on the spiritual nature of man. Prove that spirits don’t exist and that the king of spirits is not God, that there are some mysteries we can’t comprehend and I’ll have to change my mind too but until that time I’ve proven God is a miracle working God, He spared my life multiple times and I count no better service than his work. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow (body), and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart Hebrews 4:12.

 

 

I decree and declare a breaking and shattering now in the name of Jesus!

 Let the supernatural work of God take precedence now over the will of men.
