First you need to understand that emotions towards earthly things have a spiritual threshold. When you have strong emotions towards something, whether good or bad, and it exceeds the threshold, it opens the door for Satan to work in your life.
The soul of man has capacity to love and hate, but when soul love or soul hate becomes excessive, it becomes a soul tie. According to Dr Isaiah Wealth, a soul tie is the result of the violation of soul love threshold or the unleashing of soul hate. When love exceeds a threshold, it becomes worship, and any worship of a thing or a person other than God is a sin. It becomes idolatry, which creates a highway or channel for demons to travel in and through your life.
It’s okay to dislike someone for what he or she did, but when dislike grows to become hatred, you would create a soul tie with that person even without knowing. Hatred for someone is an inverted worship, because it takes all your attention just like worship does. Let me show you a few scriptures:
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
Did you see that? You need all your mind and soul to love the Lord acceptably. If someone else occupies that position, then that’s a red flag. According to Exodus 34:14, God is a jealous God, and He doesn’t expect you to worship any other god.
When you realize that you are loving or hating someone beyond a point where you cannot obey God’s word, then a soul tie has definitely been established. It was a soul tie that made Solomon – who had done many great things for the Lord, marry many strange women and even worshipped their idols at the later end of his reign. It was a soul tie that made David kill Bathseba’s husband even after sleeping with her. Generally, when you love or hate something so much that you’re willing to violate God’s word for that feeling, then a soul tie is involved.
Many people didn’t know this, but God was simply trying to break the possibility of a soul tie between Abraham and Isaac when He told Abraham to sacrifice the only son he loved. God needed to be sure that Abraham would still obey Him despite loving his son. Many people will disobey God ten times if they were in Abraham’s shoes.
You may love your child, but when it is to the point where God wants him and you cannot give him up, there is a soul tie. Love your husband, love your wife, love your child, but do not love them to a point where if God wants them, He cannot have them.
Soul ties are very dangerous, the devil can move or transport things to you through the people you have a soul tie with. You must have heard many cases of wives that died few days after their husband died. They were so tied to their husband that the devil could easily transfer the spirit of death to them.
Speaking of hatred, as Christians, we are permitted to be angry, but it mustn’t last till the morning. If you do, you may be establishing a soul tie without knowing, which will eventually give room for the devil to operate in your life. Let’s see how scriptures put it:
26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
27 Neither give place to the devil.
You cannot be angry with someone for years and expect nothing to happen to your soul. Hate is the opposite of love. When you allow yourself to hate, you are opening up your soul for a spiritual link to be created, and demons are always set to reinforce that emotion and use that soul tie as a channel to travel to and fro your life. This explains why devoted Christians still go through unexplainable challenges. A soul tie with someone naturally and supernaturally permits attack in your life. So no matter how much you pray and fast, you can’t avert the effect except you forgive and forget.
I’ve since learnt that forgiveness isn’t a choice, it’s a necessity for a sound Christian life. I’m very quick to forgive, and that’s because I don’t want to create an opportunity for a possible soul tie.
As I conclude, the bible speaks of a body tie and spirit tie, these are different from a soul tie. A body tie occurs when you have sexual intercourse with someone (Gen 2:24, 1 Cor 6:16). A spirit tie occurs when you consciously align with a spirit. 1 Corinthians 6:17 says, “But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit”. It is this oneness that allows passage of blessings from God to you.
I hope this has brought enlightenment to someone.
Remain ever blessed, in Jesus precious name!
