The spirit of bondage is constantly seeking its next victim while trying immensely to not lose those that are already in captivity. When people create bonds with things and other people, those bonds are known as Soul Ties.
Soul Ties can utterly destroy your life because it tends to trap you and make you feel like you can’t live with it but at the same time that you can’t live with out it. Your mind is saying no, but you are fighting a war in the spiritual realm that is screaming yes. It is telling you that you know that the person or situation is horrible but you’ve went too far down that road to just up and turn around.
In life you have to be careful about who you interact with because simple interaction can easily turn into a long-term, unhealthy bond. Take relationships for example. In most cases, physical infidelity doesn’t just happen immediately after two people speak to each other. The temptation to sleep with a person outside of your relationship and the probability for it to happen, is measured by the bond that is created.
That bond starts with simple conversation and then is eventually followed by longer, deeper conversations. Those simple hellos start turning into lunch dates or texting each other all throughout the day. In time, the bond between the two of you start developing stronger and stronger. Eventually, not only did infidelity happen emotionally but also physically.
1 Corinthians 6:16 tells us that when a person fornicates, the two souls are combined. So not only did you cheat, but you also brought another soul and the baggage that comes with them into your relationship.
Many people that seem to be good people find it difficult to be in a long-term, loving relationship because of the evil spirits that they gained through sex, especially if they had a lot of partners. Their soul is fragmented and is not able to easily bond with their new partner.
Many look at soul ties as just a sexual bond between two people but it’s much deeper than that. It can be with your friends also. If you have known your friend for a majority of your life but than you two grow apart tremendously, the soul tie that bound you may still be there and need to be broken.
During your early adult years, you two may have drank together, went to the club together, or whatever it is that bound you. In time, if you are growing and maturing yet they are still doing the things that you all did 20 years ago, you will outgrow them.
I have friends that I love dearly and at one point we were bound together. I felt compelled to always keep them in my life because of the history that we shared. But I realized that the way that I live and the way that they live are polar opposites.
I no longer found our conversations meaningful and had no desire to do those things that I did in my youthful for years, so I severed the friendship. But to sever the friendship, the soul tie had to be broken.
Just like there are ungodly soul ties there are Godly soul ties. Marriage is one of them. Ephesians 5:31 tells us that a man will be joined with the woman and those two will become one flesh.
If you are a victim of ungodly soul ties, it is not too late to get rid of them and to lead a healthy life. It’s not enough to just know about them, get rid of them. Pray that you will be delivered and that the desire inside of you that is caused by the spirit of bondage will be destroyed.
The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” Romans 8:15
