WHAT ARE SOUL-TIES
“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.” (I Samuel 18:1)
Soul-ties are spiritual connections formed through intense relationships or inordinate affections with spouses, close friends, sexual partners, business partners, buddies and/or organizations such as cults, religious denominations and lodges. One can even have ungodly ties with possessions or objects which is idolatry.
Such relationships can be toxic and hindering in the life of any individual, especially believers seeking to find their freedom in Jesus Christ.
Soul-ties resemble an umbilical cord connecting one person to another in the spiritual realm. This cord must be severed for one to break loose from such an undesirable relationship.
One can have soul ties with a group or organization. Herein lies the manipulative power of cults. All such knittings of demonic nature should be broken by prayer and spiritual warfare. Often it is effective to prophetically act-out the cutting of the cords, bands or tentacles of soul-ties with a spiritual sword.
Of particular concern are relationships with ex-spouses, sexual partners, dominate or controlling individuals and control groups or cults.
Some such inappropriate relationships are usually obvious. For others, you should ask the Holy Spirit for revelation. Break these soul-ties one-by-one after you repeat the following prayer.
