Shadow Behavior – Satan’s Counterfeit Soul Tie

Good Morning Friends, Family and Guests. I trust that the affirmations of Faith in which we all share are speaking to you and inspiring you to live with hope and courage! Let’s open with a prayer this morning…..

Our Father who art in Heaven,

Hallowed be Thy name,

Thy kingdom come,

Thy will be done,

on earth as in Heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.

and forgive us of our trespasses

as we forgive those who have trespassed against us.

Lead us not into temptation

but deliver us from evil.

For Thine is the kingdom, the power,

and the glory forever.


OK, here we go!!!! This morning God has put on my heart to talk about that behavior, that bad behavior that we sometimes engage in that leads us away from Kingdom living, that behavior, that sneaky act or thought that leads us down a road to sin….we all get them from time to time, but with God as our shield, How do we keep them in check….ok, let’s get into it…

Here is an example…A dear friend of mine has just informed me that he is leaving his wife of 31 years. They are both Christians. She has been the choir director and a SS teacher at her church for years. He has been active, also, at church and in men’s Bible studies. He’s a quiet, seemingly stable kind of guy. My friend knows he has no Biblical grounds for divorce, but he is the one initiating this action. My heart is so heavy. The question to you is, “What would you say? How does one respond?” Understand this first, I’ve been on him about his shadow behavior for some time…His…being on the computer at all hours of the night, NOT WORKING, the occasional 2nd turn around stare at an attractive lady at the mall as he passes her by…I’ve had to ask him to check his neck! several times in my company..his “I will be right back” Phone calls from work where he steps outside and speaks real low and giggles and grins….some work call :\ …….you know the type of behavior I’m talking on, the kind that breaks the Ties between husband and wife, parents and children, friends etc…….SHADOW BEHAVIOR! How one allows Satan to counterfeit the SOUL TIE!!!! Ok here we go, let’s get into it….

!st, Let’s understand the Soul Tie


Soul ties were God’s idea to bring blessing into all of our lives. It was His plan that wherever a proper soul tie existed between two persons, there would be a mutually beneficial sharing of soul blessings. A soul tie is like a linkage in the soul realm between two people. It links their souls together, which can bring forrth both beneficial results. It is because of the existence of sin that Satan has been able to counterfeit God’s good design and use God-instituted soul ties to perpetuate his plan in our lives.

Godly Soul Ties in Marriage: God purposed and promised from the beginning that a husband and wife would be joined as “one flesh.” This would be enacted by the sexual union experienced in marital intercourse, an outward sign of the inward grace given by God for this “one flesh” promise. God designed this soul tie for our good and intended it for blessing….Ok you still with me here….let’s dig a little deeper in this…The positive effect of a soul tie: In a godly marriage, God links the two together and the Bible tells us that they become one flesh. As a result of them becoming one flesh, it binds them together and they will cleave onto one another in a unique way. The purpose of this cleaving is to build a very healthy, strong and close relationship between a man and a woman….Hello…See in Matthew 19:5

Matthew 19:5, “And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh.”

Soul ties can also be found in close strong or close friendships. They are not just limited to marriage, as we can see with King David and Jonathan:

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.” Right, Right! Somebody help me a little here…

Godly Soul Ties Between Parent and Child: Good soul ties are founded on the law of love is alive in the parent/child relationship. Parents are to be the first demonstration of the love of God for a child. As this is lived out, a union is formed—first within the womb and then throughout infancy and childhood. The parent is connected on a deep and godly level with the child and the child with the parent, as long as the love that exists demonstrates the love of the Heavenly Parent, our loving and Almighty Father God.

Godly Soul Ties Between Friends: Another kind of soul tie which is godly is deep and committed friendship as demonstrated for us in the union of David and Jonathan. “The soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul”. 1 Sam. 18:1

Godly Soul Ties Between All Believers: The family of God is realized in the Body of Christ our Lord. “The whole body joined and knit together Tight by what every joint supplies…causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love” Eph. 4:16. LOVE!!! Ok, Here we go…This godly relationship between Christians in the Body of Christ is necessary for the advancement of the Kingdom of God!!! HELLO!! We are bound together with ties that may not be physically seen, but are nonetheless the reality of our life together! Praise God!

Whew…Anyone need a break…NO, Alright, let’s roll!;)

Examples of Godly Soul Ties

– created by godly bonds between humans

– founded on love

– reinforced by patterns of godly behavior

– function within godly boundaries

– leads to greater holiness

– results in blessing and wholeness

Ok, Lord give me strength….This is where the advisory sneaks in, rather where we allow him to….ready to take notes…here we go…

Ok, first, let me break this down a bit…The negative effect of a soul tie: Soul ties can also be used for the devil’s advantage. Soul ties formed from sex outside of marriage causes a person to become defiled!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!: I KNOW I just pushed some buttons….ok..BUT it says in:

Genesis 34:2-3, “And when Shechem the son of Hamor the Hivite, prince of the country, saw her, he took her, and lay with her, and defiled her. And his soul cleaved unto Dinah the daughter of Jacob, and he loved the damsel, and spoke kindly unto the damsel.”

This is why it is so common for a person to still have ‘feelings’ towards an ex-lover that they have no right to be attracted to in that way. Even 20 years down the road, a person may still think of their first lover… even if he or she is across the country and has their own family, all because of an ungodly soul tie!!!! Ok, stay with me here…we are rounding the corner…

Demonic spirits can also take advantage of ungodly soul ties! WHAT….YES!!!, and use them to transfer spirits between one person to another. I remember one young man I assisted through a deliverance and rebirth in Christ; he was facing severe demonic visitations and torment, all thanks to an ungodly soul tie. I led him to break the soul tie, and the attacks stopped completely!!!!! HELLO…This is serious stuff, somebody help me a little here…

Ezekiel 23:17, “And the Babylonians came to her into the bed of love, and they defiled her with their whoredom, and she was polluted with them.”

OK LISTEN Closely!!! Satan cannot create or function within the realm that is good or Godly. Therefore, Satan brings about a sinful counterfeit. Ungodly soul ties result from a perversion of what God designed as good and holy. HEAR THAT!!! That which God originally intended for good is marked and distorted, thereby deviating it from it’s intended right purpose. Look at these distortions: Common Let’s do this…stay with me…

Ungodly Soul Ties

– created by ungodly human bonding!!! You know what this is!

– founded on lust or selfish desire!!!

– reinforced by sinful patterns…late nights on the computer(Non WORK!!, sneaky phone calls, wandering eye…Lying, Being deceitful to spouses, friends, brothers etc etc etc…

– function outside God’s boundaries

– leads to greater sin

– results in curses and destruction!!!!!

Soul Ties Formed in an Ungodly Friendship, Relationship or Affiliation:“Do not be deceived and misled! Evil companionships(SOME PEOPLE DON’T EVEN KNOW THEY ARE BEING USEDDD!!!!! WAKE UP!!!(IF HE/SHE is MARRIED….NO MATTER WHAT “EXCUSE” THEY HAVE…STEP OFF!!!!) (communion, associations_ corrupt and deprave good manners and morals and character” 1 Cor. 15:33. God is aware we as people are influenced by our friends and associations. The fruit of soul ties that develop with sinful or evil companions, co-workers and organizations (even ministries!) produce behavior which is contrary to the Spirit of God. Ungodly soul ties created through close friendships with unbelievers are Satan’s counterfeit and are intended to bring curses and destruction. H E L L O! You have just been served!

ok ok ok…now listen…praise God, I got ya…Stay with the ol Boi!

It is possible to have Ungodly soul ties with animals, things, pastors, spiritual leaders, parents, children, the demonic and even the dead. Anything that takes our focus off of God, Jesus Christ and the leading of the Holy Spirit should be looked into as a potential unGodly soul tie. Another way to look at this concept is that these are “idols” in our lives.

Luke 10:27 “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; this is the first commandment.” Anything that prevents you from that is idolatry. Anything that comes between you and God, that keeps you from serving Him and loving Him above all, is an idol, a “little god” in your life. Anything that keeps you from obeying Him and His Word is an idol and must be broken and removed from your life if you are to serve Him with a pure and whole heart and partake of the Kingdom…..Friends, Family…Hear me…How can you serve our God, if you’re hiding in yourself, actions and thoughts which control or influence your heart, conscious and mind, which keeps you separated from those who want to help you, and more especially keeps you separated from the Father, our Lord and GOD!!!! LET IT GO, LET IT GOOO NOWWW!!!!!! Warm your heart again and feel inspired to live a positive life full of all the joy and wonders of HE who loves you so much!!! Come Home!…..ok ok we are almost there, hang with me…

Ungodly Soul Ties Formed Through Sexual Sin are the worst…been there, done that, so work with me as I get you through this…. here we go…: Because God designed sexuality to be expressed exclusively in the sanctity and safety of the marital relationship, A flood of blessing comes into the couple through this bridge or cord which connects and binds their souls together. When a man and woman or a man and a man or a woman and a woman engage in sinful sexual intimacy outside of marriage, instead of receiving a blessing from the joining of their bodies, they receive a curse. Through sexual relationship outside of marriage, evil soul ties are forged. Those who engage in sex outside of marriage become the “one flesh” (God’s Law) which God intended solely for husband and wife.

SYMPTOMS OF UNGODLY SOUL TIES, See if you recognize any of these…

Obsessive preoccupation with another, to the neglect of the things of the Lord.

Tendencies to be domineering and controlling in a relationship.

Tendencies to be passive and apathetic in a relationship (easily manipulated).

Inability to truly forgive from the heart.

Another person’s voice playing over and over in the mind, like a tape-recorder.

Inability to bring a relationship under the Godly order and control of the Holy Spirit.

Patterns of anger, blame and accusations in a relationship, from guilt of one’s own actions

Fear of “being real with” or speaking truth to another (intimidation and fear of man).

Psychological abuse within a relationship.

A soul tie is a ‘channel’.

Ok, simply..Think of a soul tie as a drinking straw through which flows mental, emotional and spiritual things, be they from the human spirit, be they psychically induced, demonically inspired, or genuine and edifying from the Lord. Because demonic spirits can transfer so easily through soul ties, it’s essential to identify and destroy those that are ungodly, controlling, or emotionally binding!!!!!.

Unless these soul ties are cut, they will produce SHADOW BEHAVIOR which is a harvest of bad fruit in the life of the Christian adult and certainly in the sexual and marital life.

Is everyone ok….Praise God…ok, here we go…SO…

As we walk through the steps to cutting out shadow behaviors and ungodly soul ties, remember that these ties between your soul and the soul of another were created by a “legal contract”, enacted a legal point of access between your souls, in the spiritual realm. As we cut these ties, we are canceling a legal spiritual contract — we are rendering null and void that which sin produced and we are cutting away the souls which were bound, thereby creating a godly distance between you and the other person. CUT IT OUT and LEAVE IT OUT!!

Friends, Family, one and all…Here are the steps you may take to cut ungodly soul ties/Shadow behavior and remember, although you may follow these steps in your own prayer closet, we are called to confess our faults to one another according to James 5:16, and walking through these steps out loud with a trusted Christian friend or pastor (same gender, please!) is extremely helpful:

1. Confession & Repentance is a MUST!

2. Renounce the connection made through ungodly bonding.

3. Post a spiritual eviction notice on your soul to influences that would defile it.

4. Command any spirits which are connected to this soul tie to leave in Christ’s Name.

5. Forgive and offer God’s personal blessing on the person…very important….but they MUST GO…………………………….ok


FIRST, repentance is necessary. In ungodly soul ties, God’s laws have somehow been violated. Express any personal guilt you may have in this matter If there has been sexual sin; confess it openly, even if you have confessed before. Ask God to forgive you of any part you played in developing this ungodly soul tie. In the case of molestation or other situations where there is no sin in the person who has been abused, It is good to express the reality that sin was in the abuser and that this sin produced this soul tie.

SECOND, renounce the connection made through ungodly bonding. Express that this contract is “cancelled” and the soul tie is “cut.” Do this out loud in the authority of Jesus Christ. You need to hear yourself say it and certainly, the spiritual realm needs to hear that you are canceling this contract.

THIRD, post a spiritual eviction notice on your soul. Command, in Christ’s Name, that the person has NO LEGAL ACCESS to your soul through ungodly means. Pronounce your soul set free from theirs and any sin, curses, or bondage that may have resulted from this tie. Announce that the enemy has no further legal right to your soul and that every ungodly soul tie developed in this relationship is now destroyed in the Name of Jesus!

FOURTH, command any spirits which are connect to this soul tie to leave in Christ’s Name. Because we recognize that soul ties are a prime vehicle on which spirits can ride into our lives, it is good to use this opportunity to pronounce that they also are evicted!

FIFTH and finally, forgive and offer God’s personal blessing on the person whose soul you have just cut from yours. Ask the Lord to bless them, for their salvation and forgive them for any part they have played in bringing or keeping the enemy’s plan into your life.

REJOICE! Some have after-effects of a sense of peace, or even sadness. Regardless of what emotions may or may not accompany your prayerful cutting of ungodly soul ties, you have assured with confidence the cancellation of those ties in the spirit realm! Rejoice; our Lord is in the business of setting captives free and in these prayers and your conscientious follow-up, your soul has been set free from ungodly ties produced by sin!

WOW!!!!! what a morning! Are you ok 🙂 You should be, Praise God, you now know what it is and what to do, no excuse!!! No more excuses….execute….you may say, Rev. Poe, I can’t, I love them, he/she is my friend, I will miss them….ok, I say, don’t be a TOOL and a FOOL!!!! Satan is NOT your Friend, He will HURT YOU!!! You say he is your friend, so when do you get that you’re a tool…for his sins and a fool as a friend…when….after multiple out of marriage abortions, or after he abuses you into therapy, or worse after he/she hurts a child or lies on you at the job, or takes money, or whatever!!!! CUT IT OFF and CUT IT OUT, STOP BEING THE TOOL and acting LIKE A FOOOLL!!!! YOU NOW KNOW what and why your stars don’t shine!!! NOW FIGHT FOR WHAT’S RIGHT, BRING IT BACK AND START OVER ON TRACK!!!!!!:)

May the Lord Bless you, May he keep you in health, strength, love and keep you encouraged to break the ungodly ties that bind and allow you to truly enjoy his sunshine;)

You got the message, now share it! I Truly understand that no one is perfect and that life is hard, and that I have to practice this harder than most, as I too have Ties that I must CUT, but Knowing how is half the battle, the other half is START CUTTING! (Execute)…Now you know, God Bless you again and safe cutting;)

I wish everyone an outstanding Sunday, Enjoy the rest of your day:)

Father in heaven, thank you for revealing to me the presence of this/these soul tie(s) with:

__________________________________ (ALL the names of involved)

__________________________________ (ALL the names on items or issues involved)

I confess and ask you to forgive me for my sin which activated this ungodly soul tie. I ask you to forgive me for any part I played in developing this ungodly soul tie. (Note: In the case of molestation or other situations where there is no sin in the person who has been abused, confession of sin is not necessary, although it is good to express the reality that sin was evident in the abuser and that this sin produced this soul tie.)

By the power of the Holy Spirit and in the name of Jesus I “cancel” this tie and “cut” it off from me. I command, in Jesus name, that these persons/things have NO LEGAL ACCESS to my soul through ungodly means. My soul is set free from theirs and any sin, curses, or bondage that may have resulted from this tie. I command any spirits connected to this soul tie in any way, to depart in Jesus’ name.

I bless those I just released from these soul ties and ask the Lord to bless them, for their salvation and forgive them for any part they have played in bringing the enemy’s plan into my and their life by enabling this ungodly tie.

I thank you Father that I am now free, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

I hope this helps someone, if it does, then please share it.
