Sex and Soul Ties

“Guard your heart above all else, for it determines
the course of your life.” ~ Proverbs 4:23

soul tiesIf you’ve had sex outside of marriage, you formed a soul tie—or more than one—that may be the cause of the emotional, psychological, and physical problems that are now tormenting you.

What is a soul tie? A soul tie is the spiritual link that is formed between two souls during sexual intercourse. First Corinthians 6:16 describes a soul tie: “And don’t you realize that if a man joins himself to a prostitute, he becomes one body with her? For the Scriptures say, ‘The two are united into one.’ ” This uniting into one is a soul tie.

When the soul tie is created only in marriage, the link is lawful and the two souls involved are blessed because of their obedience to God’s commandment to have sex only within the context of the marriage relationship. But if the soul tie is created through sex outside of marriage, all kinds of serious problems result.

A soul tie created by sex outside of marriage is the unlawful tying together of two souls. This unlawful tying together causes spiritual bondage between the two souls for the rest of their lives unless the soul tie is broken through the power of Jesus Christ. Because of this spiritual bondage, the demonic spirits found in one person can transfer to the other person, and vice versa.

In today’s culture, we consider two people married when they have gone through the wedding ceremony. In Biblical times, two people were considered married once they had sexual intercourse. So, in God’s eyes, marriage results from sexual intercourse, not from a wedding ceremony.

Interestingly, in some states, when a couple wants to get a divorce, the judge will ask them if the marriage has been consummated. In other words, he will ask them if they have had sex yet because, according to the law in that state, a relationship becomes a marriage when the couple has had sex.

In light of this understanding, every time someone has sex with another person, she is married to that person. Not only that, but every time someone has sex with another person, her soul is tied to that other person’s soul.

So, if a girl has sex with five guys, in God’s eyes she has married five times and her soul has been tied to at least five other souls. In most cases, the number of soul ties is even greater since each of the guys may have had multiple sex partners.

Do the math. This means that a girl who engages in premarital sex with one guy can be tied to hundreds of other souls without even knowing it. Yet, all of those other souls are affecting her every day.

No wonder so many people are suffering so much emotional, psychological, and physical torment! They are in bondage to hundreds of other souls all of whom have demonic forces operating against them. And all of these demonic forces combined are operating against that one person who chose to have sex outside of marriage.

Consider this example. Let’s say a guy sleeps with a girl who is involved in the occult. Afterwards, he begins having nightmares and develops unreasonable fears. This guy, who, before sleeping with the girl was never afraid of anything, is now terrified of everything. Why? The reason is that the demons of the occult in the girl’s soul transferred to the guy’s soul when he slept with her.

Not a pretty picture, is it? Does it make you think twice about having sex outside of marriage?

Soul ties can also be caused by sexual abuse or unhealthful emotional relationships. In such cases, the same Jesus Christ who wants to deliver you from the sin of premarital sex will deliver you from the soul ties created through sexual abuse.

Remember this: Sex outside of marriage will destroy your soul. This is the reason that God forbids it. He is not out to keep you from pleasure. He is out to keep you from pain.

Questions: 1) Do you have to repent of unlawful soul ties? 2) Are you aware that Jesus Christ is the only way for you to break unlawful soul ties? 3) Will you ask for and receive His cleansing and restoration of your soul? In Psalm 23, He promises to restore your soul. The word “heart” is another word for “soul.”
