We’re human, so we have a natural desire for companionship. This can take many forms, most commonly through a friendship, partnership or relationship. If you carefully look at all these words, you would notice that they have one thing in common which is the verb ship. This is defined as a large boat for transporting people by sea. It transports, which means it moves from one side to another side. However, within relationships, there are certain connections that can cause your spiritual growth to waver without you even realising it. This is called a soul tie, where two souls are tied together in the spiritual realm. Soul ties can be formed in a variety of ways.
One of the most dangerous soul tie is the one that is formed through a sexual relationship. As Christians, a good sexual tie is formed only when one is in marriage, as this tie is then ordained and favoured by God (Ephesians 5:31). There is something peculiar about the soul tie of a husband and wife, which is meant to remain unbroken. That’s why it is not advised for a couple to enter into sexual relations before marriage. This is also for the simple reason that when a relationship ends, and the bond is broken, the two will still carry a piece of the other person with them.
When someone has an ungodly relationship with someone else, their soul is tied and this causes the ship that was meant to transport you to your marital destiny to sink. People who have had relationships that included sexual encounters often find it very difficult to move on because they are still connected spiritually. Becoming “one” with someone in spirit is much deeper than the physical act alone. I would advise all women to keep themselves pure and wait until marriage to have sex. This will enable you to tie your soul to just one person who was intended and ordained by God.
Moreover, King David and Jonathan formed a good soul tie as a result of their friendship. Jonathan had love for David as his own soul (1 Samuel 18:1). A soul can be defined as ”the spiritual part of a human being which lives on after an individual has passed away” or as ”a seat of one’s deep desires and a flow of feelings.” Usually the longer you are friends, the closer you become. When Jonathan and King David became friends in the physical, their souls recognised each other in the spiritual. This is why it is hard to break off friendships at times; your souls could have formed a bond in the spiritual realm, which makes it hard to break the physical bond.
Soul ties can bring forth a multitude of sins. As previously mentioned, fornication is one of the ways in which a soul tie is created and this in itself is already a sin. Breaking the tie and asking God for forgiveness will give you freedom back. A covenant with the soul can also be made by the giving of gifts or physical tokens. If you have received any of these from someone, make sure these items are eliminated or out of sight for your own good. Have you noticed ladies, that the moment you stop talking to someone and you start reading old text messages, it rekindles the feelings and thoughts you once had? This is because your soul hasn’t processed the separation yet and you’re refuelling an old bond.
In conclusion, a soul tie can be broken, but, you need to first realise and accept that there is indeed a soul tie. If there is any soul tie you would like to break, I would advise to verbally acknowledge the soul tie, confess what has happened and then break it off in the Name of Jesus. You can be set free from a soul tie but then it’s up to you to keep all of it in the past.
