The souls of men and women knit together with negative repercussions. Manipulation and control by another person can create negative soul ties. For example, One can become tormented by thoughts of a former lover. Sexual partners can pass multitudes of spirits on through sex. The souls of ex-lovers knit together, even though they no longer see each other.
Other negative soul ties include homosexual partners or anyone who played a dominant role in one’s life like a former bosses or a dominant parent. Witchcraft creates heavy negative soul ties as well.
“Do you not realize that everything that goes into a person from outside cannot defile, since it enters not the heart but the stomach and passes out into the latrine? (Thus he declared all foods clean.) But what comes out of a person, that is what defiles. From within people, from their hearts, come evil thoughts, unchastity, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, licentiousness, envy, blasphemy, arrogance, folly. All these evils come from within and they defile.” Mark 7:18-23
One lady had a demon of addiction to alcohol and drugs, she also had problems with men and love. When praying for her the Lord impressed upon us to tell her to get rid of the picture she had of Marilyn Monroe at the head of her bed. What problems (demons) did Marilyn Monroe have? – drugs, alcohol, and problems with men and love.
“And when Shechem …, prince of the country, saw her, he seized her, lay with her, and humbled, defiled, and disgraced her. But his soul longed for and clung to Dinah, daughter of Jacob, and he loved the girl and spoke comfortingly to her young heart’s wishes.” Genesis 34:2,3 Not only is it sin but you form an ungodly soul tie with that person. This is just one reason to teach your children not to have sex before marriage.
If a friend or person controls you then there is an ungodly soul tie – mothers with daughters, fathers with sons, bosses and employees with each other, just to name a few. Control is one of the key evidences that an ungodly soul tie has been formed.
One testimony we have heard is with a man that was a boy scout. When it came time to throw out the items he had kept from his youth as a scout he could not throw them away. The soul tie to the object was broken in Jesus’ Name and then the person was able to see where the control was. Any “collection” that you have and you feel that you could never get rid of is a clue that an ungodly soul tie has developed.
Remember that ungodly soul ties can be formed no matter how much you love the Lord and worship Him and serve Him.
This then is a job for spiritual deliverance “in order that Satan might not outwit us. For we are not unaware of his schemes.” 2 Corinthians 2:11
Sexual relationships outside of marriage…are also called “Soul Ties” and each one could be an entry point for demon spirits. The ties must be broken by confessing them as sin and choosing to be free from them. It would be best if you could do so by denouncing each one by name. The deliverance process involves canceling permission of evil spirits to be in our life. This prayer and renunciation will cancel consent that was granted through soul ties. The prayer can be something like this:
“Father, I confess the sin of sexual relations outside of marriage. I renounce that sinful activity in Jesus’ Name. I call back that part of me that was given to another, and I refuse that part of another that may have come to me. I denounce soul ties with and choose to be free in Jesus Christ’ Name. Amen“
We can form “Godly” as well as “ungodly” soul ties with our family, friends, pastors, other Christians, churches, movie stars, and rock stars and the list goes on.
When a soul tie is formed, a person takes on the characteristics of the person or thing it has formed that tie with. We have found that people form ungodly soul ties with movie stars or rap singers like the demonic Tupac from having their pictures, books, tapes, etc.
A TRUE STORY
In Chisasabi, Quebec at James Bay, a young native boy was completely possessed. His mother and father were holding on to him with both arms.
A minister who attempted to deliver him from his tormenter (an evil spirit) had problems in deliverance. Finally, he said, in the name of Jesus, tell me your name. No answer! Then afterward at the end of the evening, the boy blurted out, “Tupac forever!”. The evil spirit in him had to obey Jesus’ command to reveal his name. The father realized that the boy wore a Tupac or 2pac belt. When the belt was taken away, deliverance was successful. The rap singer, Tupac, who died prematurely, had been using satanic lyrics. The minister used a prayer of deliverance:
“I command the ungodly holy spirits to leave now and never return and go to the abyss in the Name of Jesus Christ, Our Lord.”
The parents destroyed all the paraphernalia, which was kept in their child’s room or which was worn.
WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?
Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.” 1 Peter 5:8,9
All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’” Luke 10:17
DO YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?
To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
- Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
- Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
- Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
- You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
- Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
- Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
- Are you attracted to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
- Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
- Do you keep hitting the same wall.
