Welcome to #SoulTies 7. In #SoulTies 7, we attempt to identify good #SoulTies and bad #SoulTies in the bible. We also see the potential that all the #SoulTies have to abort the manifestation of the believer’s destiny. The love of food, sleep, sex and money are major #SoulTies that we need to deal with.

- Now that we are achieving some stability in our #SoulTies study, we’ll be having the broadcast weekly on Thursday at 8pm GMT
- We have had a few intense #SoulTies sessions already
- However I want to state that we are not here to condemn anyone or stigmatize anyone who has repeatedly fallen into sin due to #SoulTies
- We are here to expose them as the works of the enemy that the blood of Jesus has been shed to purge us from
- We are also not here to provide excuses and reasons for Christians to continue in sin due to a misunderstanding of grace
- The Bible states clearly in Romans 6:23 that “the wages of sin is death” #SoulTies is no excuse for us to continue in sin
- We are here to work out our salvation (that Jesus already paid with His blood) from #SoulTies according to God’s word. In about 2-3 weeks from now our focus will shift to how we can practically work out our already purchased salvation from #SoulTies
- Now let’s get down to tonight’s business
- Tonight we want to fine tune our definition of #SoulTies make it more inclusive while highlighting the clearly dangerous ones
- If we gain enough speed, I’ll answer a popular female question which is “Why do married men cheat?” Otherwise next week Thursday
- After God called His creation good; this included man and woman. They had spirits, souls and bodies. All were good
- This also meant that their souls were good before they sinned in the garden of Eden. Nothing wrong with their souls
- Gen 2:24: “Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave unto His wife; and they shall become one flesh.
- It was part of God’s original intention that their souls would be knit together in one purpose. I’ll explain
- The soul comprises of the mind, the will and emotions. Minds cleaving together meant they had the same knowledge, memories and imaginations
- Wills cleaving together meant they would decide to do the same things in the course of their lives
- Emotions cleaving together meant that they would both love the Lord and also love themselves without reservations.
- Effectively, it was in God’s original design that Adam and Eve would have #SoulTies with each other on the earth
- Let us call this the first example of #SoulTies which really is a positive one
- After the fall, satan corrupted the whole of humanity; spirit, soul and body. So #SoulTies also became corrupted in their operation
- Next, we look at the other types of positive #SoulTies that are not necessarily sin but satan can still manipulate to derail you
- #Soulties with your children or adopted children are positive ones. Jacob had #Soulties with Joseph because of how He was born
- This reflected in his decision to sew him a coat of many colors. However these #SoulTies exposed Joseph’s dream to jeopardy
- The #SoulTies were not sexual or sinful, but they had the potential of aborting the manifestation of Joseph’s spiritual destiny
- They were valid #SoulTies but they obscured sound spiritual judgment, God still made everything end well for Joseph though
- There’s another kind of #SoulTies you’ve with your parents. It explains the grief we feel when they are departed
- When children are under their parental covering, they’re commanded by the Bible to honor and obey them
- However, your future as a child is in God’s hands and your parents don’t have the knowledge of God’s exact will for your life
- Also some parents may not be engaged in the worship of God while trying to command their children who have met with the Lord
- These #SoulTies then create a conflict when it’s time for the child to follow the mind of God for his/her life
- Jesus had to cut #SoulTies He had with His mother when He declared his followers as his real brothers, sisters, mothers etc.
- Read Mark 3:31-35. See the authoritative way his mum came to fetch Him from a crusade. He refused to leave and sent people to her
- If you’re emotionally close to your parents, you run the risk of being influenced by them and missing God’s will
- #SoulTies with parents are neither sexual nor sinful, assuming a non dysfunctional family. But can potentially block God’s will
- Another set of #SoulTies you’ve are the ones you have with your friends. They’re not sexual and are mostly the same sex
- An example is the one between David and Jonathan. It wasn’t sexual and it was an offshoot of a divine relationship between them
- 1Sam 18:1: “…that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.” That’s #SoulTies
- There are also examples of #SoulTies between animals and humans. In the West, a lot of human affection is poured out on animals
- All these are not harmful in themselves but can be portentially manipulated by satan to bring spiritual abortion
- Tonight, we’ve seen positive #SoulTies that are open to manipulation by satan if you don’t set your affection wholly on God
- Let’s look at a few more #SoulTies tonight that can bring spiritual abortion if the Christian is not watchful
- Some Christians have #SoulTies with sleep. If you’re given to excessive sleep, you expose yourself to two dangers. First one is poverty
- Proverbs 6:10-11: “Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of hands to sleep.’
- “So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man”
- You expose yourself to poverty when you’re given to excessive sleep. The second danger is prayerlessness
- If you love sleep, there’ll be no time for you to pursue a spiritual life because your days are consumed by worldly affairs
- Next level of dangerous #SoulTies is with food and drink. If you love food and drink, you cannot fulfill your spiritual destiny
- If you cannot fast and pray, your life will lack spiritual punch. Jesus denied himself for 40 days to enter His destiny
- Forgot to mention that Jesus prayed all night before choosing his disciples and yet a devil still sneaked in to the bunch
- Christian women are busy measuring height and wallet with no prayer to choose their husbands. No wonder you picked a devil
- Some sisters even did slightly better by praying some dry tongues for 10mins while their #SoulTies were still active and then said God spoke
- I see sisters on here expressing their lust for movie stars wishing their husbands would look like them. Prayerlessness!
- Back to food, that man you want to marry and cannot fast till 12noon is your passport to spiritual abortion
- Bro, that girl you want to marry that is too posh to fast with you till 3pm is your ticket to confusion
- Eve fell by food. Israelites fell in the wilderness by food, if your appetite for food is not brought under, spiritual abortion
- We are running out of time so let’s pick one more dangerous set of #SoulTies – sex.
- 3 major #SoulTies you must kill for God’s purpose not to be aborted in your life; sex, food and sex
- Let me hit the Christian men small. You are only praying for guidance about sisters with exaggerated body parts. That’s #SoulTies
- An unbridled sexual appetite is one of the quickest ways for a believer to commit a spiritual abortion against his destiny
- A few examples of #SoulTies and then we close. Let’s start with Gen 34:1-3. We see Dinah was raped here by Shechem
- Next, we see that Shechem had #SoulTies with Dinah. Because he had sex with her, though it was illegal
- Sisters, that hyper sexual guy that can’t keep his hands off your chest while dating will metamorphose into a serial cheat.
- Shechem also shows us that most carnal men will emotionally bond with ladies who offer sex
- Sisters, dudes lie to you that you’re blue when you’re red and you’re tripping. It is sex he wants. Smell the coffee
- Let’s check the last example of sexual #SoulTies. Ammon had a soultie with his own sister and raped her just for sexual release
- When Ammon was done, he just became bored with her. Why? Carnal men crave the sex and care little about your feelings, sister
- Any brother that cant love you devoid of sex till your wedding day is not the man from God
- Your sexual appetite must come under the cross before you venture into marriage. Marriage is not a cure for sexual #SoulTies
- If marriage is a cure for sexual #SoulTies, what will you do when your wife is pregnant and safe baby delivery requires sexual embargo?
- Carnal men have sex outside marriage during wives pregnancy. #SoulTies why? Unbridled sex appetite
- Many women cannot go on holidays with kids without husbands because of the man’s unbridled sexual appetite
- So I present the assertion that marriage is not a cure for unbridled sexual appetite. Your sexual appetite must come under the knife of the word
- We draw to a close shortly. Hope y’all have not been too bruised by tonight’s tweets
- Please feel free to tweet comments and questions. I’ll respond to them.
