Establishing Demonic Strongholds through Soul Ties
Understanding Soul Ties Today’s Focus: Establishing Demonic Strongholds Through Soul ties Scripture: Exodus 34:6,7 Greetings Sons of God: Exodus 34:6,7: And the Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed, The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the father upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation. How do the demonic build strongholds through soul ties? When a person submits or subjected (voluntarily or involuntarily) to any form of abuse (sexual or non-sexual), covenant with person, group or organization, the demonic lay a foundation within the person which they build upon during subsequent actions related to the soul tie formed. Some of the ways these demonic strongholds include: 1. Manipulation – Person’s will is controlled by another through fear, threats, sex..etc 2. Violence - Coming out of violent situations which perpetrates violence within the individual 3. Domination - when a person is undermined to the point of losing their ability to make decisions 4. Incest – Continual sexual harassment by a member of the family 5. Transference – From father to son or mother to daughter in situations of adultery, domestic violence, illegitimate children 6. Jealousy – Suppression of character by another person 7. Verbal abuse – Continuous undermining through negative speech (stupid, useless..etc) 8. Sexual Abuse – By one or many people and this include homosexual abuse. 9. Failure – Not succeeding in life and meeting expectations 10. Alcoholism and Drug Abuse – Utilization and abuse of drugs and alcohol in attempt to solve problems These are a few ways that the demonic establishes strongholds in our lives. Usually when someone allows themselves to stay in those situations for a long time the demonic builds such a stronghold that the demon becomes a familiar spirit to the individual, understanding how to manipulate the mind of the individual to accept and continue in the situation and sin. For example a common familiar spirit is homosexuality. Now that we understand through these soul ties the demonic builds these strongholds in the individual to enslave them and oppress them from coming to the freedom of Christ and identity of being a son of God, in the next message we will examine how we are hindered from freedom from soul ties.
