I saw this photo and status via a Facebook friend this morning on my break that read:
A must read for those who think sex demons are a joke. The only one laughing is the devil. U can be set free, but why go through needing deliverance, when it is better to ask the Holy Spirit to increase your discernment. IF u have already connected with or even married some one with this spirits, you both can be cleansed.
LADIES be careful of the Men you let into your heart and enter your body. Sex is not only a physical exchange– it is also a spiritual exchange. Sex is powerful and a direct pathway into your temple. Some of you can’t get over that low life of a man because the demons he carries within him still torment you spiritually. You KNOW in your gut that even though he looks attractive…something about him ain’t right. Yet, something still keeps luring you to him. Your mind and body wrestles back and forth with spiritual principalities and “sexual soul ties.” Sexual soul ties BIND you to that man, men his type and the dark spirits that follow him. Some women often wonder why the SAME type of dude always pursue them… Why they ATTRACT the same type of guy after they got rid of the scum bag that plagued their life.. Its that FAMILIAR Spirit he left with You !!! BE CAREFUL who you open yourself up to receive in your bed. — “If He ain’t Prayed Up, Don’t be Laid Up!”
Beware, this is a cunning one….#thebloodofJesus. #Hecametosetthecaptivesfree
I can vouch FIRST HAND that soul ties are REAL! They are as real as I am sitting here typing these words on this blog! It took me THREE years to be totally free of the soul ties from my last relationship. I wish I could say dating and physical ties are only a matter of the heart, but they are much more — they’re a matter of the soul and spirit.
Now that I’ve been celibate for going on 5 years (and counting), I truly have been able to have the space and time to actually think about the PRACTICAL importance in waiting for marriage before having sex AND the importance of looking at the full picture before making the vow to marry someone. You have to take the time to explore your significant other’s past and really pay attention to any red flags. Too many times people make excuses for being with someone because they are comfortable with who they’re with; or because they simply tire of being single. I know because I used to be guilty of it! This fact, combined with the ever diminishing morals of our society, lead us to feel like sexual acts are “expected” when navigating a relationship. After having sex with someone, we grow in the feeling that we are MEANT to be close to this person. WE can’t get them off of our minds. We ‘love’ them. No one can compare to them. We care more for them than we want to and we don’t know why. If we hold on a little longer, they will change…. blah blah blah.
All of that mental anguish, confusion and contradiction is a result of — a soul tie.
If you’re a follower of Christ as I am, you know that the Bible tells us to abstain from sex until marriage (Hebrews 13:4). The reason is actually more practical (aka real life) than you would imagine. God intended for marriages to be strong. To be between one man and one woman. For spouses to support each other and populate the earth. He designed us in a way that once we entered marriage with our spouse, we’d become one. He INTENDED for our souls to join together. (1 Corinthians 7:2, 1 Thessalonians 4:3, Leviticus 18:22)
Now think about your last sexual (relation)ship that occurred with someone who was not your spouse. Do you honestly think God would want you to become one with that person? Do they actually deserve you!?! If you’re currently married to someone who is abusive or unfaithful and you can’t seem to understand why….did you allow sex to blind you before you actually married them? Could you have actually saved yourself from months and years of pain by getting out of the relationship before you even got to the altar?
I’m not saying everyone is bad and that you’re automatically going to hell without redemption if you have ever had sex before marriage. What I AM saying is that if you, like me, did not wait — you still have the power to make the choice to stop. If you still have your virginity that is AMAZING, and I want to say that I am proud of you. Keep going! Keep waiting until marriage. It may seem hard holding on to your V-Card, but TRUST ME WHEN I SAY, it’s even HARDER getting of a soul tie. (Matthew 12:43-45) By allowing soul ties to connect us to someone who is not our spouse, we open up the door for the sin of sexual immorality to come shipwreck our lives. Yes we can always ask for forgiveness from the sin we do. Yes everyone sins at some point during their lifetime. But it’s still not excusable to WILLINGLY participate in acts that are not pleasing to God. If you adopt a sexually promiscuous lifestyle and connect with people sexually OUTSIDE of the marriage bed, not only are you hurting God’s heart…not only disrespecting the will of our Lord….you are spiritually and physically opening up yourself to spirits that mean you no good.
If you’re reading this and you are in a sexually active relationship right now; have a talk with your significant other about stopping (or at least easing out of having) sex. This will allow you to TRULY get to know them because keeping it ALLLLLLL the way real, we tend to look over and deal with some mess for the sake of our physical relationships. I’m just being honest! If you say you don’t then you’re lying to yourself and whoever else you tell that to!
Though I didn’t wait for marriage to have sex, I spent an entire year getting to know the guy I was certain I’d spend my life with — without having sex. That’s how I knew I loved him FOR REAL. There was nothing distracting me. Unfortunately distance and other factors caused us to break up, but I am almost certain that if we started our relationship off with sex, we’d still be in some hyper dysfunctional relationship now! What I’m trying to say is sex is worth the wait. I’ve been on both sides of the fence, and I’d rather experience physical intimacy with someone I know I’d have the rest of my life to spend growing with. Sex within marriage is a gift of a deep connection from God — don’t mess it up by getting tied to a demon.
