Welcome to #SoulTies 3. In #SoulTies 3, we are looking at how your associations with sinful people serve to strengthen your evil #SoulTies. We see that evil #SoulTies will not be cut, if you don’t do away with these associations that you practise sin together with.

- Last night we started looking at emotional #SoulTies. We continue today and hope to knock the door into sexual #SoulTies.
- As is our custom, we will start by reading the scriptures and then start moving swiftly through the gears.
- Ephesians 2:3a “Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh…”
- “… fulfilling the desires of the flesh & of the mind; & were by nature d children of wrath, even as others.”
- We see from the scripture that Paul said that we developed our #SoulTies in association with other children of disobedience.
- Tonight we are sharing on #SoulTies you developed and sharpened with your friends in the world. They are very destructive.
- If you look at your life today and you find any bad habits, you will also find people in your life with whom you practice them.
- Habits aka #SoulTies are rarely practiced in isolation. Smokers usually go downstairs in packs to smoke together. They rarely go alone.
- A #Naija friend of mine said she didn’t know her #SoulTies so I should figure out what they are. I told her I couldn’t all d way from here.
- I said if I lived in her house for a week I’ll figure out her #SoulTies. You’ll instantly think I’ll go there to watch her. No!!
- I’ll be watching her friends not her. Your friends tell me who you are because you fraternize on the basis of #SoulTies. It’s that simple!
- Geeks fraternize with geeks. Drug addicts fraternize with drug addicts. Holy people fraternize with holy people.
- Prostitutes fraternize with prostitutes. Alcoholics fraternize with alcoholics. Musicians fraternize with musicians.
- Spiritually serious people fraternize with spiritually serious people. Womanizers fraternize with womanizers.
- Who are the people you love to be with or you feel most comfortable being with? That tells us what your #SoulTies are.
- I tell singles to keep an eye on who their date has as closest friends. They reflect the real him not what he’s showing you.
- I can accurately predict your future by observing your friends. You may pretend to me but your friends show who you are
- In addition to seeking spiritual deliverance from #SoulTies habits, the associations that brought you there must be TERMINATED.
- Over 12 years ago, a friend of mine coughed strangely on the phone. I knew that cough because I used to smoke in Egypt.
- It was a smoker’s cough. She’s saved & she sang in the choir. I confronted her and she owned up to doing a packet a day.
- She said she wanted to be out of it so I figured out quick that there must be a group. I asked if her best 3 friends smoked.
- Answer was YES for all 3. In fact they all lived together & all sang in the choir. Their boyfriends also attended same church
- I told her that deliverance would only come by her packing out of that house. No use wasting time tongue talking there
- Dangerous sexual habits are hardly developed as lone wolves. They are mostly developed with friends of like minds.
- Most smokers and alcoholics were introduced to those addictions by friends. Others by intense remote observation.
- 1 Corinthians 15:33 “Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.”
- Your efforts at deliverance and discipline fall apart like a cheap 2 dollar suitcase when your evil associations remain intact.
- Many sincere and well meaning Christians never reach their full potential because of #SoulTies they practice with evil associations.
- If your 3 friends boast of how many girls they have been with this month, what will you also boast of? Soon you’ll find one to be with the same way!
- If you don’t do the same, you can’t measure up to the standard of that group. So you either do what your friends are doing or vote with your feet.
- Ladies, your turn. Your 3 closest friends described what they did with their boyfriends last weekend. You don’t have any.
- Next week, you’ll give in to a guy who’s been nagging you or you’ll vote with your feet out of that association.
- Alcoholics boast about how many pints they can consume before they get smashed. Men don’t like being inferior so they drink on
- …switched to the phone, can tweet while hair is being cut.
- If you have a sex addiction, you MUST cut off completely from the sex partner and your pressure group who practice same.
- Same with alcohol, drugs and porn. You must terminate those relationships that brought you into those addictions.
- You are not to hang in there trying to convince them to come with you. If you want to be free, you flee.
- This is in addition to renewing your mind with God’s Word and also removing your eye gates from these addictions.
- If you want to beat a sex problem you need to cancel your subscription to the porn channels.
- Lot and his wife saw nothing wrong in Sodom & Gomorrah because they had stayed too long there watching the wrong people.
- You are a virgin. Don’t make those who have no value for chastity your closest friends. They’ll talk you out of it.
- You are more likely to arrive your desired destination if you forsake evil associations that breed #SoulTies in your life.
- These #SoulTies also need to be starved to death by cutting their supplies to your eye gates. Very important.
- You know the areas where satan has continually buffeted you. Relocate yourself away from your partners in crime.
- I was so messed up before I got saved that I moved in with the fellowship leaders for 2 weeks to cut my evil associations.
- The sexual ones are worse. You just can’t hang out with them if you want to be free.
- If you hang out with people who talk profane, ultimately your mind will become profane.
- We have upheld the role of the renewal of mind in the process of beating #SoulTies but if you don’t relocate as well, you’ll fail.
- Your continual rubbing of minds with experts in that area of #SoulTies will continue to frustrate your efforts to be free.
- There are some #SoulTies that are practiced in deep secrecy by people. These are equally dangerous.
- Cousins, siblings, friends practice certain #SoulTies under a pact of secrecy. But I have news for you.
- Proverbs 9:17: “Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”
- Proverbs 9:18: “But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.”
- Proverbs 20:17: “Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.”
- These #SoulTies include porn, masturbation habits etc shared with your very tightest of friends with whom you share a pact of secrecy.
- I have a female Christian friend who married another Christian in her church. Leading up to the wedding, no sex. Happy right?
- Fast forward to wedding night still no sex. The lady wasn’t bothered. She was relaxed that the dude wasn’t that sexually active.
- On his birthday, a card came through in the post addressed from a dude who called him his darling. Hmmm! Scary!
- It then came to light that he had a secret and illicit sexual pact with another man while married to my friend.
- Those are dangerous #SoulTies that involve secret pacts. They taste sweet to those who practice them but fill your mouth with gravel.
- Forbidden love may be sweet but it will fill your mouth with gravel ultimately.
- Dude in church hoped to be married to my friend while perpetuating a secret same-sex relationship with another dude. Divorced.
