This week, we look at the operation of #SoulTies in the life of the Christian who has not spent time renewing his/her mind with the Word of God. We see from the scriptures that #SoulTies are actually used by the devil to draw the believer into sinful conduct. This is a very powerful teaching you dont want to miss reading.
•    Well start by looking at some scriptures that pertain to #SoulTies before we proceed to analyse them
•    Col 3:5a: “Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection…”
•    The Bible defines #SoulTies as inordinate affection that should be mortified or put to death in our conduct as born-again believers
•    Ezekiel 23:11: “…she was more corrupt in her inordinate love than she, and in her whoredoms more than her sister in her whoredoms.”
•    Hebrews 11:15: “…if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to return.”
•    From Heb 11:15, we see that #SoulTies were developed through our lifestyles in Egypt as unbelievers. We learnt a lot of them in Egypt
•    From Heb 11:15, we see that if our minds are not renewed with Gods word, well seek opportunities to return to practice our #SoulTies
•    From Heb 11:15, we also see that the memories of our previous #SoulTies are not hazy. They are clear, vivid and reproducible.
•    Yes, you are now born again but you didnt forget how your last boyfriend in Egypt made you feel
•    Yes, you are born again now and tongue talking, but you cant forget that super experience your last girlfriend gave you
•    Yes, you are now moving up the spiritual ladder in church, but that last girl keeps nagging you to come for more
•    From Heb 11:15, we also see that there is an entire country we left practicing #SoulTies we are supposed to mortify
•    From Heb 11:15, we also see that we make comparisons at certain crucial moments between our previous #SoulTies and our new life in the Spirit
•    When the Israelites were challenged, they always reminded God of their #SoulTies: leek, onion, garlic, cucumber etc
•    There are times in your wilderness experience where Satan tries to show you that your #SoulTies should be returned to
•    Satan is wrong. He is only trying to rob you of your inheritance with God
•    From Heb 11:15, we also see that satan will hardly bait you with new stuff but with stuff youre already conversant with
•    Someone once said satan is running out of material, if he uses old stuff against you
•    However, theres enough unhandled old stuff already that can cause mega problems if youre not prayerfully on the Word
•    Lets look at another scripture passage and then gain some altitude afterwards. James 1:13-15
•    Please bear in mind that giving ourselves to the Word and prayer will reduce the effects of #SoulTies to the barest minimum in our lives
•    James 1:13: “Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man…”
•    James 1:14: “But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed”
•    James 1:15: “Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”
•    James 1:13-15 shows that the acts of sin in our lives stem out of our lusts i.e. cravings. Inordinate affections aka #SoulTies
•    We see that if Satan will tempt you, hell draw you through old stuff (#SoulTies) lodged in your heart called lusts
•    If you were into sex and no drugs before you got saved, satan will hardly entice you with drugs. Hell use sex
•    So your weak point is where you get hit the most by Satan. Samsons own was women so satan didnt bring drugs to him
•    When you want to be recruited into secret intelligence, they scrutinise your habits over a period of time
•    They want to know the weak points the enemy can use in honey trapping you. #SoulTies may be money, cars, food, orgies etc.
•    Until we renew our minds with Gods word in those areas and get transformed, satan has entry points he can capitalise on
•    There is a lifelong assignment for both the pew and the pulpit to renew our minds. Else stuff will happen and the pew gets confused
•    And believer not committed to the mind renewal process with Gods word will be susceptible to #SoulTies, irrespective of status in church
