Welcome to #SoulTies 2. In #SoulTies 2, we look at the operation of #SoulTies in the life of the Christian who has not spent time renewing his/her mind with the Word of God. We see from the scriptures that #SoulTies are actually used by the devil to draw the believer into sinful conduct.
Please find below Flickr & iCloud links for the Soul Ties 2 Tweetcast
- We continue from where we stopped a few days ago. We stopped at identifying common soul ties.
- In Soul Ties, we’ll look at #SoulTies that operate mainly in the emotional realm, if time permits, we’ll look at the sexual realm too
- Please note that this is a tweet cast to Christians who desire to live to their maximum God-given potential
- Hence, the #SoulTies stuff we are sharing here is bible-based. If you’re allergic to the Bible, please fasten your seat belts
- Because we’ll be dishing bible stuff here on #SoulTies that may make you a bit uncomfortable at some point
- Some of the terminology will also be detailed and graphic so bear with us
- We’ll start by looking at some scriptures that pertain to #SoulTies before we proceed to analyse them
- Col 3:5a: “Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection…”
- The Bible defines #SoulTies as inordinate affection that should be mortified or put to death in our conduct as born-again believers
- Ezekiel 23:11: “…she was more corrupt in her inordinate love than she, and in her whoredoms more than her sister in her whoredoms.”
- Hebrews 11:15: “…if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to return.”
- From Heb 11:15, we see that #SoulTies were developed through our lifestyles in Egypt as unbelievers. We learnt a lot of them in Egypt
- From Heb 11:15, we see that if our minds are not renewed with God’s word, we’ll seek opportunities to return to practice our #SoulTies
- From Heb 11:15, we also see that the memories of our previous #SoulTies are not hazy. They are clear, vivid and reproducible.
- Yes, you are now born again but you didn’t forget how your last boyfriend in Egypt made you feel
- Yes, you are born again now and tongue talking, but you can’t forget that super experience your last girlfriend gave you
- Yes, you are now moving up the spiritual ladder in church, but that last girl keeps nagging you to come for more
- From Heb 11:15, we also see that there is an entire country we left practicing #SoulTies we are supposed to mortify
- From Heb 11:15, we also see that we make comparisons at certain crucial moments between our previous #SoulTies and our new life in the Spirit
- When the Israelites were challenged, they always reminded God of their #SoulTies: leek, onion, garlic, cucumber etc
- There are times in your wilderness experience where Satan tries to show you that your #SoulTies should be returned to
- Satan is wrong. He is only trying to rob you of your inheritance with God
- From Heb 11:15, we also see that satan will hardly bait you with new stuff but with stuff you’re already conversant with
- Someone once said satan is running out of material, if he uses old stuff against you
- However, there’s enough unhandled old stuff already that can cause mega problems if you’re not prayerfully on the Word
- Let’s look at another scripture passage and then gain some altitude afterwards. James 1:13-15
- Please bear in mind that giving ourselves to the Word and prayer will reduce the effects of #SoulTies to the barest minimum in our lives
- James 1:13: “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man…”
- James 1:14: “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed”
- James 1:15: “Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”
- James 1:13-15 shows that the acts of sin in our lives stem out of our lusts i.e. cravings. Inordinate affections aka #SoulTies
- We see that if Satan will tempt you, he’ll draw you through old stuff (#SoulTies) lodged in your heart called lusts
- If you were into sex and no drugs before you got saved, satan will hardly entice you with drugs. He’ll use sex
- So your weak point is where you get hit the most by Satan. Samson’s own was women so satan didn’t bring drugs to him
- When you want to be recruited into secret intelligence, they scrutinise your habits over a period of time
- They want to know the weak points the enemy can use in honey trapping you. #SoulTies may be money, cars, food, orgies etc.
- Until we renew our minds with God’s word in those areas and get transformed, satan has entry points he can capitalise on
- There is a lifelong assignment for both the pew and the pulpit to renew our minds. Else stuff will happen and the pew gets confused
- And believer not committed to the mind renewal process with God’s word will be susceptible to #SoulTies, irrespective of status in church
- I’ll take a short break here so we can look at emotional #SoulTies
- Lets look at emotional soul ties now.
- The most influential #SoulTies are between humans and the most powerful ones are between the opposite sex
- First we need to realise that men and women operate slightly differently in this area of emotional #SoulTies
- Each time a man and a woman are emotionally involved in a relationship, their souls become tied together
- In a typical worldly relationship the lady is more involved with her heart and the dude is more involved with his organ
- Reason is that women react more to what they hear and the touch they feel while men react more to what they see
- It explains why a lot more men are into porn while the most decent women detest porn #SoulTies Men get stimulated by what they see
- It explains why men get attracted to naked avis on twitter
- Some follower put a raunchy pic up as her avi two days ago and my TL was buzzing in about 30 minutes with follow back requests from men
- Men are easily enticed by what they see. Also, women are enticed by what they hear and how they are touched
- Women are touched in very many ways by words, flowers, money, gifts, tenderness etc.
- This creates a law of supply and demand where men supply what women want and women also supply what men want
- My assertion of men being led by their organs is validated by the fact that they even pay for sex. Only abnormal women pay
- Slowing down a bit, when you come into Christ, debris of those experiences are still lodged in your soul as memories
- Your 5minute salvation prayer did not remove those memories. You still cherish those memories secretly
- Mind is not renewed and those that practiced this stuff with you are still looming out there. Y’all forming holy right?
- These emotional experiences are like fingerprints on our souls that harbour the entry point for satan
- As a man, say your attraction was exaggerated physical features before you entered the kingdom. Now you are saved attending a big church…
- …filled with variety of sizes. Though prayerful, you ended up dating only the ones with exaggerated physical features and then you married one
- You even testified that God spoke to you in a vision and bamboozled us with church speak. Oga, God didn’t say anything, was your #SoulTies
- Some even say arrogantly, ‘we are socially compatible.’ Oga your social compatibility came from your #SoulTies not your spirit
- Listen, there is a way I liked women in Egypt and God had to deal with me using hard knocks before I saw Moni. You are not alone
- Let’s hit the ladies small. How come God has never spoken to you about that truck driver in church?
- You always wanted him 6ft4 so you could never have heard God say anything about that 5ft8 dude. isn’t it?
- You always wanted him romantic but you attend MFM. Suddenly you say God spoke to you about that unsaved ex boyfriend
- My point is even our so-called good tastes in Pentecostal circles and leadership are borne out of #SoulTies
- You walk into a Pentecostal church and almost think that all the ushers were carefully selected by your unsaved colleague at work
- Our basis of fraternization is not the Word but the alignment of our social features brought in from Egypt
- On Sundays, we are bombarded in church with the same sights we used to see in the night clubs before we got saved
- Something doesn’t add up. Don’t you think guys? We’ll continue with emotional #SoulTies tomorrow night at 9pm. Lot more stuff
- We’ll call it #SoulTies 3 tomorrow. We may possibly close with# SoulTies 4 on Tuesday night. Let me know if you are happy or upset so far
