Free from bondage: Break the soul-tie

A soul tie is a spiritual tie between individuals. In the Bible, it doesn’t use the word soul tie, but it speaks of them when it talks about souls being knit together, becoming one flesh.  Soul ties between married couples draw them together.  Soul ties between unmarried people such as those who are fornicating, may cause a battered woman to run towards her abuser as opposed to run away from her abuser.  Soul ties are links in relationships that can be extremely unhealthy.  When we consider that a soul tie is formed through fornication, friendships, marriages, and other commitments, we have to wonder how a soul tie can be broken.  Soul ties can be broken through prayer and fasting.  One can be set free or delivered from an unhealthy relationship with determination to live a Godly life.
 
The most common way that a soul tie is formed is through sexual relationship.  That is why the Bible tells us not to fornicate-have sex outside of the marriage covenant. An unholy soul tie can serve as a bridge to bring demonic influence and activity to the other person.
The three major ways that soul ties are formed:
 Sexual relationships: Godly soul ties are formed when a couple are married (Ephesians 5:31, “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.”), and the Godly soul tie between a husband and the wife that God intended him to have is unbreakable by man (Mark 10:7-9). However, when a person has ungodly sexual relations with another person, an ungodly soul tie is then formed (1 Corinthians 6:16, “What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.”). This soul tie fragments the soul, and is destructive. People who have many past relationships find it very difficult to ‘bond’ or be joined to anybody, because their soul is fragmented.

Close relationships: King David and Jonathan had a good soul tie as a result of a good friendship (1 Samuel 18:1, “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.”), but bad soul ties can form from bad relationships as well. Idolizing somebody can cause a bad soul tie.
I have heard too that you can create a soul tie with a rock group by becoming obsessed with their music. Which explains the strong pull towards certain music that seems almost irresistible.

Vows, commitments and agreements: Vows are known to bind the soul (Numbers 30:2), marriage itself consists of vows and binds the two people together (Ephesians 5:31), therefore I have little reason to overlook the concept of vows or commitments as being a means to create a soul tie.
 
As difficult as it may be, break the chain of bondage and live for God.  Ask the Lord to “create within you a clean heart.” Soul ties can bring about much guilt and frustration.  On the other hand, we never want God to give us over to our desires, to where we are calling right wrong, and wrong right.  Be encouraged and know that breaking a soul tie is a spiritual act that must be taken seriously.  Pray without ceasing until your change comes.  Read and study the word of God so that you can live sanctified and holy before Him.  God can use a clean vessel.  Holiness is right.
