"For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them." -Matthew 18:20
I don't want to give you false hope and say that everything will work out in 2 seconds flat, but it WILL work out and you WILL be freed.
The length of time solely depends on how much is needed to be done (i.e. how many soul ties you have) or how strong they are, and other details that pertain to your life. Of course I never discount God's miraculous healing at any time and any amount, so all I'll say is: wait in expectation, a great thing is about to happen.
I mentioned the above verse because I STRONGLY advise you to:
1. JOIN with 2 or 3 other people to PRAY.
I pray that you seek godly counsel. People of prayer, people who are MATURE in Christ and know about the spiritual realm and are fully CONTENT in helping you BREAK the chains. If you go with someone who's not fully involved in helping you, it's not going to really be a battle, so you need people who are going to fight with you in the spiritual realm.
I encourage you to seek people you TRUST, but if you don't know anybody yet, ask your pastor about the prayer team, and their gifting if necessary, and also pray for God to lead you to the right people.
2. Be OPEN with those people. They need to know everything. They will help you IDENTIFY what is in your life that needs to be taken out (e.g. if it's a spirit of greed or a generational curse etc.) It doesn't matter how humiliating or scarring it might've been, there's nothing that Jesus hasn't heard about and that He doesn't' know about and didn't die for, He's ready to hear you say it and come to Him for healing. Also in this case, if they're going to help you break the soul ties and move on, you'd have to confess any activity you might've done, or what was done to you and so forth, out loud. It might lead to a lot of forgiveness as well and proclaiming all these things, but it has to be spoken out loud. These people will be praying for you and with you whilst you do this so you can break the chains.
It might seem like the first two would've done it all, but if let's say the people spend an hour with you, you'd still need to go back and talk to God. It's now more about anticipating a breakthrough in your life. I would STRONGLY suggest three days fasting (morning to 5 or 6pm), but like I said, it also depends on your conviction as well.
4. Exchange other things for PRAYER.
It will be time to sacrifice.
I once read that in order for you to know that you're being deceived or that things are not in line, you'd have to be so FILLED with the light that you can IDENTIFY what's NOT of light. It might take time, but start filling yourself with light and also reading about the area you're going through (e.g. how break soul ties or how they are formed etc.) Get knowledgeable about it because one day God's going to use you to help somebody else.
5. MOVE ON.
Literary move on. You're ready for a new life. No more connections with the past. Clean your room, clean your closet, clean your boxes. It's time to get rid of all things that come from those soul ties. It's time to move on.
When I think of this part, what comes to mind is Luke 17:32.
Luke 17:32 has one line and it says: "Remember Lot's wife!"
Now, you know that if there's an exclamation mark it means something. It's very important that you remember her.
If you don't know the story, Lot, and his wife were escaping Sodom and Gomorroh which was a place full of sin and God had rained down burning sulfur to destroy it. God told them that whatever they did, NOT to look back. Lot's wife, looked back, and she turned into a PILLAR of SALT (Genesis 19:26).
Remember Lot's wife.
Don't look back.
Once you're done, you're done. You might be "tempted" to go back there, but don't look back. If you want an accountability partner, I encourage you to get one, otherwise keep praying for God to take that urge away and any pull as it was a soul tie that needed removing.
It later on says in that passage: if you CLING to your LIFE, you will LOSE it, and if you let your life GO, you will SAVE it (v.33)
Jesus want's to take it all from you. He wants to save you. It's a process, but it is one that is worth it.
God bless you in your process and journey of removing soul ties! God wants to see you healed and He loves you very much! I'll be praying for you as well.
God bless you!
In Christ we pray,
When 2 souls are tied (or held together) in the SPIRITUAL realm, they are called "soul ties." If they are tied in a negative way, or restrictive way, they are negative or ungodly soul ties (i.e. from demonic behavior).
I felt a sense of urgency to post about this. I feel like a lot of people have or are creating ungodly soul ties and they are in bondage because of it.
God wants to free you from what you're going through, and He wants to see you through it. He wants to guide you through healthy relationships and healthy dynamics. It will happen according to God's grace.
He wants to let you know that He will see you through it and BE with you if you trust Him.
This is such an important issue and I can't even stress this enough.
Many of us are so unfamiliar with this and it is very important.
UNgodly soul ties are what prevent us from going on in our lives. They prevent us from moving forward. If you ever feel like you are moving along quite fine but then there was a hold on you for some reason, there might (not in ALL cases) be some ungodly soul tie going on, which all relates to some type of demonic activity.
Soul ties can also be different in other ways. Let's look at a few:
1. Sexual relations --> the good kind.
This is between a married couple. Ephesians 5:31 says that a man will leave his father and mother, and shall be JOINED to his wife, and they two shall be ONE flesh. This is the good kind to all you healthily married couples!
For those unmarried, who are you playing "house" with? Who are you "marrying" spiritually, emotionally, and with your body? Who are you bonding with?
2. Sexual relations --> the bad kind.
This is when one has sexual relations with another (even those who are already married are involved when they go outside of their marriage looking for something more).
Under the context of Sexual immorality (-so pay attention!-) 1 Corinthians 6:18 tells us that, "do you know that he who UNITES himself with a prostitute/harlot is ONE with her body? For it is said, The two will become ONE flesh." (v. 16)
I can't stress on this enough. It is so important.
We, as humans, have become accustomed to saying: "it's my body, why can't I do what I want with it?" or "I've been hurt before, so I'm going to get back all the people who've hurt me by sleeping with others," or the VERY famous, "God INVENTED sex, so why can't I have it as I please?"
God's not RESTRICTING you from sex. In fact, sex is a beautiful thing between a healthily married couple as it BONDS them together.
God doesn't want you to get HURT. The devil doesn't want you to know these truths, and wants you in bondage forever.
3. Close relationships
A GOOD example, one that I admire, is from 1 Samuel 18:1 which is the friendship of David and Jonathan. It says, "After David had finished talking with Saul, Jonathan became ONE in Spirit with David, and he loved him as himself."
I have to say, that was an amazing friendship that David and Jonathan had, and for Jonathan to go against evil in his family for a friend was very commendable.
The BAD soul ties that could come from CLOSE relationships is when one starts to IDOLIZE something, to idolize someone. It is important to know that there is a balance between all friendships and relationships.
I was doing some research on this, and on the GreatBibleStudy website, I read about how soul ties can also be made via vows, commitments, and agreements! I didn't know that! And I repented straight away!
You see, I made a promise/vow to someone months ago, and it was a bad soul tie. In breaking that, I tried to figure out what it was that was making me stay connected with them, and I realized it was the vow, the vow was dangerous.
Many of us make ungodly vows, and statements. Many of them are "innocent" or from a good place, and we say them to be nice, but the spirit world has a big paaaarrttttaaayy over them because we'd be giving them PERMISSION to take over those lines.
Ever wonder why words like: "I'll always love you, I'll never leave you, I'll always do this..." have a hold on us? As sweet as it may be, you can't ALWAYS be there, and you can't ALWAYS do anything, unless you're God. Didn't Jesus say, "I'll never leave you or forsake you?" Think about it.
We need to humble ourselves and acknowledge that it is only done by God's grace and His doing. In pride we say these things to keep a hold on another, and we form ties that we end up paying for.
What comes to mind is Proverbs 18:21 which says, "The TONGUE has the power of LIFE and DEATH and those who love it will eat of its fruit."
Have you ever thought of that? Have you ever really thought of that?
This is why ungodly soul ties bring an abuser and their victim back together. You don't even have to be a Christian to know this, but there will be times where you logically know that you need to get away, and so in the NATURAL realm you want to run away and be safe. Then there are times when you are pulled back and you say, "there's just something about them, there's just something that keeps bringing me back." So the victim goes back as it's all they know, and that's because in the SPIRITUAL realm, the unholy soul tie serves as a CONNECTION, a standpoint, a CONTROL point, for the victim to go back to.
It's unlikely that the victim would go back if they didn't have this problem with the soul tie.
You can read on how to BREAK these soul ties.
Keep safe, and keep trusting Christ,
With love always.
