There are invisible ties between human beings: alive and alive, alive and dead, between human beings and spiritual beings, between human beings and animals. There are demonic ties, soul ties, ties of curses, witchcraft ties, and bands or bondage.
Most Christians do not believe that demons control any part of their lives. If they only knew how much, they would be aghast and would begin to take action against the forces of darkness. I spend my time primarily studying what happens to people when they do not obey the Law of God. I study God's Law of Justice. Most people want to study Gods's Law of Love. The Law of Justice equally balances the Law of Love.
Do you feel as if there is something that ties you to another or as if there is pressure around your body? Think about ties to men, women and animals: both dead and alive, and to inanimate objects and demons.
We believe that God has setup an invisible system of ties that we can not see but we can feel the results of these ties. We are knit together with God as His Body. We are also knit together with others and by demonic forces.
The impression that we have is that there are good ties with God and bad ties with the forces of evil. You could visualize being tied up, bound up, in chains and fetters, tied to others, weighed down, under pressure, etc. You are either tied to others or tied-up within your self. You are carrying heavy loads on your shoulders or within your body.
God can either put you into bondage or remove you from bondage. It is your choice, not God's. You either do or do not follow God's Law. You pay the consequence for your actions; you sow what you reap.
If you have a cursed object in your house, you are cursed. A cursed object does not just sit idle in your house. It will cause trouble for you. There are demons that live in or around the cursed object. Do you feel an unusual attraction or repulsion to some object in your home, office or car? You may have a demonic tie to it.
Some friends of ours were ministers who went to Haiti. One time they brought us some carved figurines as a gift. These statutes caused us strife in the family. Our daughter, Marie, felt like there were eyes watching her as she walked across the room. The Lord finally got our attention and we destroyed the wood figures. The wood would not burn normally and finally I had to soak them in charcoal-lighter fluid. When they finally burned, a green flame came out and shot toward us. These dolls were probably made by Voodoo worshipers who blessed them so that they would be sold. After getting rid of the statutes, the strife left our family.
SEX WITH DEMONS
There are demons that have sex with humans that may be against their will. There are worshipers in Voodoo that invite demons to have sex with them during their rites. These demons are called incubus for women and succubus for men. It may be possible to form a soul tie with a demon.
SPIRIT, SOUL AND BODY
The human being is composed of eternal spirit, intellectual soul and fleshly body. God imparted the spirit into the womb at the moment of conception. The soul is normally thought of as mind, will and emotions. The soul and body grow as we develop as humans. When we die, God will take our spirit and soul into the spiritual world leaving our fleshly body behind. We will recognize each other when we get to Heaven because we will have our souls which contain our memory.
An animal is composed of soul and body but no spirit. When the animal dies, there is no indication in the Bible that God preserves any part of the animal or that any earthly animals will be found in heaven. There are heavenly animals that are there now, such as horses, and will probably be there when we arrive.
Demons have a spirit and soul but do not have a body.
When we unite with another, we unite in the soul. A demonic tie is formed between men and women depending on what the sin is all about. A soul tie or some form of demonic tie may be formed with beasts, demons and objects.
Soul ties are simply becoming one flesh according to the Bible; the souls are united. Soul ties are invisible ties between live humans, live humans and dead humans, and live humans and animals. Soul ties between live humans would include husband and wife, man and whore, woman and gigolo, man and man, and woman and woman. Soul ties between humans and animals would include sex with animals by men or women. Soul ties between live humans and dead humans would include any inability to give up the dead and influence of the dead on the living.
Have you been married before and divorced or separated? Is your former mate dead? If so, you have a soul tie with that person that needs to be broken, unless you plan to reunite with that person after temporary separation.
GODLY SOUL TIES
There is a good soul tie between godly married mates. This was established by God as one of His Laws. Earline and I had a godly soul tie. This was our only marriage and we did not have any other former mates. We were one flesh. We became one flesh when we united in sex. Marriage in the Bible was consummated when the couple came together sexually. They simply went into the tent, had sex and they were married in the sight of God. There is no need for paperwork or formalities in the sight of God; these are needed for man's world.
FORNICATION AND ADULTERY
Fornication is all sexual acts outside of godly marriage union. Fornication would include sex between men and women before marriage even if the consenting adults got married after sex. Most people think that if they get married after a child is conceived, it is not illegitimate. In the sight of God, the child is a bastard.
A soul tie is formed immediately upon the sexual act. God made the woman to have a strong attraction to the first man that she had sex with. It is going to be very difficult for the woman to forget her first sexual partner even when she gets married to another man. She may want to go back to her first partner as she goes through life.
Adultery is ungodly sexual acts in marriage with another person. Adultery is also defined as fornication. If a man or woman has sex outside of marriage with another, then a soul tie is formed with that person. When the married person goes to bed with their godly mate, it is as if they were bringing the other people to bed with them. This explains why people have some problems with their sex lives. They think about others during this time.
Sex with the harlot, whore, prostitute, gigolo (either male or female) causes a soul tie to be formed just the same as if the marriage was legitimate before God. Any soul tie outside of marriage is ungodly.
The world gets caught in the age-old trap of thinking that sex is love. Sex is not love; sex is sex. Sex in marriage should be sex with love but may only be sex without love. This may be brought about by the wife bargaining for sex with the husband to get something she wants or for some other reason. It could be that all the husband wants is quick sex.
Homosexuality forms soul ties between men and men or women and women. They have united their souls through the sexual act of sodomy. There is now a spiritual tie between them similar to the ties of being married. Sodomy causes strong demonic action.
Bestiality is the sexual union between man or woman and beast. It may be that a soul tie is formed between the person and the beast. Have you noticed that some people treat their animals as if they were their children? Why do people have an ungodly attraction for animals? It is not all for bestiality but it illustrates how a person can be attracted to animals as if they were humans.
Curses are a type of demonic tie between the living, and between the living and the dead. Curses speak of oaths, binding and lying upon. God can curse us for not following His Laws. We can curse ourselves and bind ourselves under a curse. We can curse others and bind them under a curse if we have the spiritual authority to do so (such as our children).
When the curse is broken, there is a release as if a tie had been severed. I have always wanted to see the connection in the spiritual world of the curse emanating from someone and landing on someone else. We can curse ourselves or we can be cursed by others. How does the release occur? Is the tie suddenly severed or does the demon suddenly leave or what really happens? I wish God would open my eyes so that I could see into the spiritual world and see what happens there. I would like to see what happens as we pray, war in the spirit world, etc. Practicing deliverance is the best education that I know of to help you see into the spiritual world and understand what happens.
Witchcraft is the attempt to exercise control over others for personal gain. It can be practiced by white witchcraft (so called good witchcraft), black witchcraft (evil witchcraft), or someone who doesn't even think that they are a witch. Deliberate witchcraft would be practiced by someone in the occult or Satin worship. You don't have to be a witch or warlock to practice witchcraft. Christians can practice witchcraft through psychic prayers or what they say about others.
When we go to a witch to gain hidden knowledge or something for ourselves, we are seeking to them as we would seek to God. We submit ourselves to them, become obligated to them, and they begin to exercise control over us.
Unknown witchcraft would be practiced by someone trying to control others for their benefit or even for good intentions. Parents have a right and responsibility to control children that are underage and are supported by them. Parents do not have the right or responsibility to control children that are of age and are not supported by them, especially when they are married.
Unknown witchcraft is commonly practiced in the Christian world by laymen and leaders. This is called charismatic witchcraft. A pastor or leader who tries to control his flock or group is practicing witchcraft. He or she may feel that they know what is best for their people and they try to force it to happen. They may or may not know what is best for others, but they have no right to force their will on others. The best example is God, He will not force His Will on us.
We have worked with people who have been controlled by a dictatorial pastor. The pastor has formed soul ties with those who have yielded to his control rather than the direction of God in their lives. It is necessary to forgive the pastor, break soul ties and cast out demons.
If you have left a group that truly does not follow Jesus Christ, then you need to renounce that church or organization, forgive them, break soul ties and cast out demons. The Catholic Church is a good example of an organization that tries to control their people completely. Many charismatic leaders fall into this trap of trying to control people and their money in order to build their kingdoms whether small or large.
We went to a church where the pastor seemed to let the Holy Spirit have His way in the services. There was a tremendous freedom there and you could hardly wait to get to church to see what God was going to do. Then the pastor decided that it was his church and would be run the way he wanted it to be run for his reasons. After that, the freedom left and it was like any other charismatic church.
If you went to a fortune teller to get your fortune told, then you formed a soul tie with that person. There will be an attempt to control your life by that person from then on. Attempted control forms a soul tie. Demons will be sent out to help and draw you back to the fortune teller. God will cut us off. He may kill us as He did Saul for seeking the medium. He may cut us off from His Blessings on us mentally, physically, spiritually or materially. You are allowed to be placed in bondage by God. You may lose your mind, health, wealth or relationship with God. You are cursed and God may put ties on you to prevent you from prospering.
Witchcraft causes demons to be sent to another person to affect their life. The demons may stay on the outside of the person and just talk to the person, or may affect their material surroundings. The demons may converse with the demons within the person and get their co-operation for your destruction.
There are bands that bind us. These demonic ties are bands, bonds, fetters, cords, ropes, covenants, brotherhoods, etc. that have strength, might and force in our lives.
We have worked with people in deliverance who acted like they had bands around their heads or bands around their bodies. There would be pressure on their heads as if something was tightened around their skull or brain. Similarly, there might be a feeling of pressure around the body or organ.
We have cut a covenant with Jesus Christ. He has given us His Benefits and we have given Him our life. This is a blood covenant founded on the Blood of Jesus Christ. This is a very serious agreement and should not be taken lightly.
Beauty is a symbolic name given to one of the two staves which symbolized the Lord's covenant with the seed of Jacob, and the brotherhood of Israel and Judah. I would say that this word symbolizes the good things that God will do for us.
Bands is a symbolic name given to the other of the two staves mentioned above. Strongs Concordance lists the following for bands: twisted rope, measuring line, inheritance, noose, cord, tied together, ruin, destruction, pain, pang, snare and sorrow. I would say that this word symbolizes the bad things that God will do to us. It could also mean that God sets a measuring line for us not to go past and that is our inheritance in Him. If we exceed His limits, then we face ruin, destruction, pain, pang, snare and sorrow. We could be twisted like a rope, have a noose around our neck and tied together with a cord.
David agreed with Jonathan to be his brother. They treated each other as if they were blood brothers. This agreement lasted after the death of Jonathan. David was obligated to care for the descendents of Saul and Jonathan. David lived up to his agreement. Are you living up to your vow and agreement with God?
Have you joined a brotherhood or sisterhood outside of Christianity? Have you agreed to or signed a document that causes you to treat those in that organization as if they were your blood brothers or sisters? An example would be the Masons. Have you ever cut your wrist, mingled your blood with another, drunk mingled blood and wine out of a chalice such as in an Indian rite?
As Christians, we are brothers and sisters in Christ by the Blood of Jesus. We are a family and may form some strong ties which may seem even stronger than those with our blood brothers and sisters who turn against us as we follow the Lord. This needs to be a natural love and not a contrived false love. Calling someone brother or sister, or saying that I love you does not indicate that you really mean it but may just be putting on a show for others.
YOKE OF BONDAGE
Have you ever felt that you have a yoke of iron upon your neck, or that you were carrying a heavy load on your back or that you felt a heaviness on you? This feeling could be analogous to having bands around you. It can come about because you did not serve THE LORD YOUR GOD with joyfulness and gladness of heart.
Earline wrote a lesson called An Attitude of Gratitude - The Cure for Depression. We have seen how important it is to have gratitude towards God in ourselves and the lives others.
SPIRITUAL STRENGTH, MIGHT AND FORCE
Many Christians act as if there was no force in the spiritual world either good or bad. They may act as if God had no power or would not exercise that power in the lives of men. They may act as if Satan had no power or could not exercise that power over them.
God is all powerful, all knowing and all present: omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. God exercises those qualities in our lives whether we realize it or not.
Satan is the second most powerful being in the universe, only second to God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He and his forces can do demonic miracles to fool men. Except for Jesus Christ on our side, we are powerless before him. With Jesus Christ on our side, we have power over the enemy.
You may act as if Satan was a buffoon, or wore a red suit with a tail and carried a pitchfork. You need to know your enemy. It is Satan and his forces, not man, that is causing you problems. Satan has one-third of the angels, billions of demons and about 98% of the human race in his army. We don't need to fear this mighty enemy, but we need to respect his power and learn how to overcome the enemy's army.
TYPES OF CATEGORIES
This list would include any demons that would cause demonic ties of any type. They include general categories of sexual unions, people who would control your freewill, you practicing witchcraft on others, and demonic ties to objects, animals and demons.
Demonic ties could be thought of as holds over your life or being tied to something that you can not let go of. You are tied to anything that has a hold over some aspect of your life. What you worship and is important in your life is a key to your ties.
Demonic ties can be caused by parents abusing their children causing them to try to please their parents and get their acceptance for the rest of their adult lives. They can be caused by weak effeminate men and strong domineering women improperly raising their children. Ties can be caused by false religions or religious leaders. Addictions are a type of tie to drugs, alcohol, food, etc. Children can have demonic ties with their parents as well as godly ties.
You can be tied to your enemies because of your hatred and inability to release them from their sins against you. You can be tied to worldly systems of religion, family, occupation, education, recreation, etc. You can be tied to races, cultures and creeds. You can be tied to doctors and hospitals for treatment of body and mind. You can be tied to yourself through selfishness and only thinking about your needs. You can be tied to traditions of your elders or churches.
You can be tied to medium spirits which guide your life or to your own demons that you submit to. Familiar spirits following the descendents after the ancestor's sins could be a type of tie. You can even be tied to someone that has died. You can be tied to the Devil through occult, witchcraft and Satan worship. You can be tied to demons that you have sex with.
