Persecution and Soul Ties

Grace and peace, Saints.

While writing this, the Spirit took over, meaning there is someone for whom the result is intended.  If, therefore, I seem to have diverged somewhat, from the original sense, forgive me.

I have returned from my trip to St. Louis, completing my relocation to Germany.  As many of you know, I am somewhat of a reluctant missionary to Germany.  Why wife, who is from Congo/Angola, and I have been married for fifteen years, but we have never lived in America as a family.  My wife simply does not want to live in America.  Fortunately, this has resulted in the furtherance of the Gospel here in Munich, which is doubtless the way God had intended (Read Romans 8:28).

This ministry was started under similar circumstances.  My original intent for starting this blog was to relate my experiences of being persecuted by gang stalking/mind control activities which I ultimately attribute to the Roman Catholic church.  My Roman Catholic and Muslim neighbors, both in St. Louis and here in Munich, were and have been active participants in that persecution.  Victims of this kind of persecution are under surveillance 24 hours a day, which means that your daily routine is basically a matter of public record, and any plans you make are known by others well in advance of their execution.

So it was with my arrival in St. Louis and my plans to relocate permanently to Munich.  Though the entire neighborhood was involved in my harassment in St. Louis, there were three men, who went to extraordinary steps to let me know it.  I won’t go into the specifics, because it is frankly very sad how Satan has destroyed these men.

You must understand that many of the people that have been contracted to harass me and others like me have ceded complete control of their will and morality to these people.  In other words, they are merely puppets–marionettes, if you will–who can be moved any which way at the will of the puppetmaster.  Most, if not all, of these people have been destroyed emotionally, psychologically, in many cases financially, and morally, which means spiritually, and a destroyed person is very easy to manipulate.

I have seen grown men behave in ways that would disgrace any sane, sober, mature individual.  These men, unfortunately, have had their moral centers compromised, and are, thus, merely clay in the hands of an evil potter.  They will do what they are told to do, when they are told to do it, and precisely in the manner they are told to do it.  Believe that.  I can therefore testify along with Charles Chiniquy, Dr. Alberto Rivera, and others to the fact that there are many Roman Catholics and Muslims who will do literally anything their leaders command them to do.  This is the plain truth.

So, here I am, packing my things and cleaning the house, when my doorbell rings.  When I open it, there stands one of the three with the most innocent and saintly of countenances.  I mean, if the two of us were standing next to a broken storefront window and he had a brick in his hand, I would be the one going to jail.  So, I ask him what he wants, and he asks me if he could use my garage, “because I have two cars.” Can you imagine?

Now, this man had actually avoided a personal meeting with me for six years, but, upon learning that I would be leaving permanently, he could not help himself.  He simply had to invent some reason to come to my home, and there was no better reason he could come up with, because there was actually no good reason for him to do so.

Now, to show you how Satan works, at one point, there was a woman, an enemy, masquerading as a sister in Christ, with whom I spoke and corresponded when this ministry was in its infancy.  This woman would frequently mention a next-door neighbor who, she said, would act very strangely, and who she claimed was harassing her.  Now, I knew in my spirit that the purpose for her doing this was to get me to focus on this neighbor who came to my house, for he was the most active of the three.  But, because I didn’t want her to suspect that I was onto her, I didn’t let her know this.  What I did was tell her the truth.  And that truth was that Satan uses a person for one purpose, unbeknownst to him, while actually harboring a secret agenda that is intended to destroy both he and the other person.

You see, while the woman wanted me to focus on the neighbor for one reason, Satan had something else in mind.  Satan actually wanted me to focus on my neighbor for the purpose of creating a soul tie.  A soul tie is a spiritual connection between two people that is only rivaled by the spiritual connection between a man and a woman in holy matrimony and that spiritual connection that exists between a man and God Almighty through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Now, there are good soul ties and there are bad soul ties.  The soul tie created by the sexual union of a man and a woman outside of marriage is a bad soul tie, a devastating soul tie.  Jesus told us that a man and a woman who come together become one flesh (Genesis 2:24).  If that coming together is within the sanctity of marriage, then that union is holy, because God has ordained marriage.  But if that union is not within the context of marriage, then the flesh that the man and the woman become is defiled.  They have become a whore (1 Corinthians 6:16).

When a man and a woman have sex, there is an exchange of things: physical things, biological things, chemical things, and emotional things, among them.  This we know.  What most of us don’t know and appreciate, however, is that there is also an exchange of SPIRITUAL THINGS.  Now, there are two types of spiritual things: the divine and the demonic.  Divine things are ordained of God, while demonic things are ordained by Satan and condemned by God.  Marriage is ordained by God, therefore if a married couple has sex, then the spiritual exchange is divine.  Fornication, however: that is, sex outside of marriage, is condemned by God.  Therefore, if an unmarried couple has sex, then the spiritual things they are exchanging are not ordained by God.  Their spiritual exchange is, therefore, by definition, DEMONIC.

Have you ever noticed that even after a person is no longer with another with whom he or she has carried on a long term sexual relationship, the person will retain certain characteristics of the other person?  He will often say certain things the other person said, like certain things the other person liked, and behave somewhat like the other person.  We normally think that this happens because they were together for awhile.  We think it is natural.  But, if this were the case, then why don’t we talk and act like our teachers?  Throughout our lives we spend more time, on average, with our teachers than we spend with anyone else, including our parents.   Yet, the vast majority of us don’t retain any of our teachers’ characteristics.  Why?  It is because we have not established a spiritual connection with our teachers.  There is no soul tie.

There are also good soul ties.  The soul tie between very good friends, for instance, is a good soul tie.  The Bible speaks of the friend you love “as much as your own soul” (Deuteronomy 13:6).  The Bible also teaches that when David first met Jonathan, the son of King Saul, that “the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul” (1 Samuel 18:1).  The spiritual connection established by a married man and woman is also a healthy, in fact, holy soul tie, because God Himself is in the middle.

There is yet another type of harmful soul tie, and that is one that is created when a person becomes obsessed with another person.  An example of this can be found again in 1 Samuel 18, where we find that King Saul had become so obsessed with David, that at times he could think of nothing else but killing him.  His obsession with David eventually led King Saul to pursue the young man for years.  

Soul ties of this nature can cause a person to become a voyeur or peeping-Tom, or, worse, a stalker.  In just about every detective movie I have seen where the detective had to conduct extensive surveillance on someone, it was inevitable that he would become obsessed with his subject.  People who have indulged in this kind of behavior have become obsessed to the point of doing something reprehensible, like stalking, rape, and even murder.  

This actually happens.  Last night, I read the testimony of a Christian pastor who Jesus delivered from homosexuality.  The man testified of having been raped by a man who had a homosexual obsession with his father, who was also a pastor.  He said that the man raped him, because he knew he couldn’t have his father and was jealous of his mother.

Things like this happen because obsessive soul ties are caused by demonic activity.  We read in 1 Samuel 18 that Saul’s deadly obsession with David was actually caused by an evil spirit (v. 10).  With time, the unnatural affinity of spying morphs into an obsession.  The Bible teaches that a double-minded man is unstable in all his ways (James 1:8).  The person who obsesses over another will over time lose his grip with reality and will eventually become mentally unstable.  And an unstable person cannot discern between good and evil.

Moreover, the person, who engages in spying will begin to despise his own existence. Jesus said:

“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other” (Matthew 6:24).

The person who spies on another will almost certainly come to hate his own life.  Proof of this is a comment one of my neighbors, who has been spying on my family for more than a decade and whom my wife actually caught spying on her, made some years ago:

“You are in shape, I am in shape, your wife is in shape, but my wife? Yuk!”

Translation: “You have a beautiful wife and I have an ugly wife.”

Now what self-respecting man would make such a comment about his own wife?  After all, he married her, so what does that say about him?  

Indeed, the person who spies on another will come to hate his own life, and, with it, his wife, his children, his house, his job, and, eventually himself.  Why?  Well, for one, the grass is always greener on the other side, they say.  But more than this, it is because the person obsessed with another will inevitably begin to covet what that person has: be it his wife, his car, his house, his kids, or whatever.  Satan will make sure of it.  This is because, besides the Tenth Commandment prohibition against coveting, Colossians 3:5 teaches that covetousness is idolatry, and idolatry will earn you a generational curse (Exodus 20:3-5, 34-7).  When you are under a curse, you are living in sin.  When you are living in sin, you are a slave to sin.  And when you are a slave to sin, Satan is your master.

The obsessed person, then, who begins to covet, commits idolatry and is hit with a double-wammy:  he has become the enemy of God and a pawn of the devil.  

When you spy on a person, you develop an obsessive soul tie with that person.  And Satan will use that soul tie to destroy you.  Remember that Jesus said Satan comes to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10).  So, if Satan is in your life, you can bet that it is for that purpose.  By creating a soul tie with another, a person invites Satan into his life, and through that soul tie, Satan 1. steals that person’s joy and his discernment, 2. kills his satisfaction with his own life, 3. ultimately destroys that person’s soul in Hell.  So the peeping Tom is miserable in this life and in the next.  What a pity!

So, to return to my neighbor in St. Louis, knowing what Satan was up to, I completely ignored him, no matter what he did, though, for years, he went to great lengths to become the object of my attention.  And I do the same here in Munich.  Several individuals have taken their turn trying to get me to focus on them and their actions.  But, instead, I keep my eyes on Jesus.  Rather than take their actions personally, I just pray for my neighbors.

And that’s the key.  We must pray for our enemies, not become obsessed with them.  We are to resist the temptation to wish harm on them or to expend mental energy on them reciprocating their hatred towards us.  Jesus told us that we are to love our enemies and to bless those who hate us and to do good to those who spitefully use us.  That includes our persecutors.   The Bible teaches that we are not to be ignorant of Satan’s devices, and one of his most successful devices is to get men to hate each other and forget all about him.  We must remember that we, as Christians, “wrestle not against flesh and blood” (Ephesians 6:11).  Our neighbor is not our enemy, even if we are his.  Satan is our enemy, and we are to resist him with all of our being.  In so doing, we avoid becoming obsessed with a neighbor, and, consequently, Satan cannot create a dangerous soul tie between us and that person.  

Satan can and will, however, use a neighbor’s obsession with us to bring him further under bondage, which is an even greater incentive to pray for him. 

I love my wife and family, and I love the life I live in Christ Jesus.  Even with everything that has happened to me and will happen, I wouldn’t trade my life with anyone, though I might consider trading with Jay-Z for a day…

On second thought, maybe not.

Be encouraged and look up, for your redemption draweth nigh.
