Warfare portals pt15

Dear beloved: Another area of demonic entry in our life is through the avenue of soul ties. This is especially important to those who have had premarital sex or multiple sexual partners before or after marriage, or are in a marriage where one partner is trapped in unrepentant sin. The ties and agreements made with those partners, even if not made consciously, can come back to torment us and cause us to have nightmares or disturb our peace. God spoke to the Israelites about going into the land and the inhabitants of the land in Numbers 33:55 "But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall come about that those whom you let remain of them will become as pricks in your eyes and as thorns in your sides, and they shall trouble you in the land in which you live. v56 And it shall come about that as I plan to do to them, so will I do to you." So God tells us that the same trouble and judgment that He has in store for our enemies, he will also mete out to us if we make agreement with the enemies. Soul ties can also be established in other ways besides sexual union, such as oaths or agreements through satanic ritual or blood covenants that many cults and gangs, and even indigenous groups practice, by cutting and mixing of blood of the participants.

Regarding the union of a man and a woman, Jesus declared in Matthew 19:4 And He answered and said, "Have you not read that He who made them from the beginning made them male and female, v5 and said, 'For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh?' v6 consequently the two are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate." And so when two people become one in sexual union, they take on the soul nature, for good and for bad of the other persons. That is the reason that we need to teach our young people not to marry or even date unbelievers, because at some point those emotional ties or initial attractions can mature into a serious relationship that will yoke them to the unbelieving and demonic realm. That is a good reason to look over the family of your children's future partner, as the families reveal the demonic tendencies in the children through generational curses. Paul says it this way in 1Corinthians 6:15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take away the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? May it never be! v16 Or do you not know that one who joins himself to a harlot is one body with her? For he says, "The two shall become one flesh." v17 But the one who joins himself to the Lord is one Spirit with Him. v18 Flee immorality. Every other sin that a man commits is outside the body, but the immoral man sins against his own body. v19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own?
I believe that soul ties can even be established with people whom we have had emotional affairs with, as Jesus said that in Matthew 5:27"You have heard that it was said,"You shall not commit adultery," v28 but I say to you, that everyone who looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart."

God's standards are very high. If you have established soul ties in any of the above mentioned avenues, write down the names of the partners you have had and go down the list one by one. Confess it before the Lord, repent of it, and renounce premarital sexual relationships, cohabitation, adultery, or lust, or whatever applies to you and ask the Lord to break off any soul ties that were created because of your actions. Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. May God bless you this day as you break off soul ties before the Lord, and prepare yourself for Jesus coming. In Christ, Jim
