This is a good question that many today are asking. Let’s take a look at some scriptures to see what we can find:
1 Samuel 18:1 And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.
Apparently, their souls were somehow ‘tied’ or ‘knit’ together. The word ‘knit’ in the above verse literally means to TIE or BIND together. Let’s look at some other passages:
Mark 10:8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.
In the above passage, Jesus is saying that when a husband and wife are joined by God, they become on flesh. Does that refer to a physical flesh? Of course not - any 5 year old will tell you that! No, it’s speaking of a soulish/fleshly joining.
To say that this is a physical joining, you would have to word it this way: “The two physical bodies are united and become one physical body.” Folks, it doesn’t take a 5-year old to tell you that such a thing never happens!
1 Corinthians 6:15-20 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
In this passage, we can see that God has a problem with us “joining ourselves to a harlot.” Why would God have a problem with the “two becoming one flesh” if it were only a quick, fast and temporary thing? But no, God is concerned about an actual joining that takes place when we have sexual relations with somebody outside of marriage.
In the deliverance ministry, we meet cases where soul ties have devastated people’s lives. I worked with one young man that was being visited by demons as a result of having a soul tie with a witch, but when I led him to break the soul tie, the attacks stopped completely! Friend, this is a very real and heavy duty story of a young man who was physically visited by demons at night, where he would see the room turn jet black, blood red, and hear voices of dead people, bones breaking, and other very heavy duty visitations. It’s sad to see that witches understand soul ties better than us Christians, and they will use soul ties to pass curses on to others.
There are articles on this web site and also GreatBibleStudy.com that deal with soul ties, and how to break them. If you’ve ever had sex outside of marriage, then I recommend taking the steps to break yourself off from any ungodly soul ties that may have been formed.
