God was willing to give them everything he had, but Adam & Eve gave Satan the authority to come into their lives by biting the apple and trying to hide it. Rather than repent, this choice brought them into a world of dark struggle. This is where we still are today without Jesus.
Read the list of ways we give authority to demonic forces, then use these example prayers below to command they leave you in Jesus' name.
Example Prayers you can use to break soul ties with the darkness
Father, forgive me for allowing the enemy control over my life through______________. I cast out these demons and ask in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, that you take back the ground I’ve given over to any force that tried to control me. I now release that ground to your control.
Putting on the Armor of God
Father, thank you for your armor. I rebuke every ungodly soul tie that attempts to come my way in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. As I completely commit and fully trust my life to You, I thank you for the discernment to recognize those ties that are not of You. As I encounter new individuals or new temptations in my life, I will not lose sight of Your great plan and purpose for my life. Thank you for protecting my mind with Your armor and the helmet of salvation. For protecting my heart with the breastplate of your righteousness. For protecting my faith with your shield. For protecting my integrity with your truth. For protecting my spirit with Your sword, and for directing my footsteps with the truth of Your Gospel.
Thank you Holy Father, for breaking every chain that joined these ungodly spirits to me. Thank you for comforting me through your spirit, and saving me through grace, and through your son Jesus Christ.
Did you know that Satan can only go where he is given the authority to go? Think about that for one moment. When we agree with any type of darkness that is in direct opposition of the Word of God, we have given the enemy the authority to come in.
That's kind of a hard pill to swallow isn't it?
Read through this list and determine where you’ve allowed the enemy a foothold into your life. If you truly want to become free, you must take a serious look at where darkness may have been controlling your heart and mind.
REBUKING SINS AND UNGODLY SOUL TIES (By Pastor Forest J Gilbert)
FORNICATION - Fornication is a word that can cover any type or act of perversion including Adultery, Incest, Homosexuality, etc… You relinquish your authority over SEXUAL LUST when you WILLFULLY involve yourself with sexual perversion.
PORNOGRAPHY - Pornography is also particularly damaging when it comes to these attacks. Pornography is an act that specifically aims to contaminate your mind. The reason that these spirits come primarily at night is because our conscious minds shut down when we are tired and when we are sleeping. It thus leaves us vulnerable to their control and weakens our resistance to evil. Whatever we fill our minds with during our waking hours is what will reign over us while we sleep.
MASTURBATION - Masturbation is particularly inviting when it comes to the invasion of night demons because through masturbation you sin against your own body and subject it to evil. You become a slave to sin through masturbation.
UNFORGIVENESS/BITTERNESS - Unforgiveness cuts you off from God’s grace and therefore His ultimate protection. Bitterness gives access to every demon of hell to invade your temple and your life.
CARNALITY - Spending too much time doing non-spiritual activities — even if those activities are not sinful. Any activity that does not purposefully and deliberately build and edify your spirit in the things of God is carnal activity. Remember, we are vulnerable in our minds during the night hours or times of fatigue. That is when we must totally rely on the strength of our spirit man to keep us from evil. If we don’t build our spirit man up then it will not be strong enough to yield to the Holy Spirit and access His empowerment.
FEAR/DOUBT - Having fear and doubt in your life opens the door to these spirits because they thrive on fear and aim to increase fear in your life. They want you to be afraid because fear paralyzes you and robs you of your faith, which ultimately robs you of your relationship with God and your purpose.
WITCHCRAFT - The Bible says that rebellion is as witchcraft. Rebellion is another word for Disobedience, so in all simplicity witchcraft is to go against
God’s way to do it your own way. There are many manifestations of witchcraft that are overlooked such as - astrology, superstitions, chain letters, etc… An especially common but overlooked form of witchcraft is manipulation; manipulating our children and spouses and others that are close to us is so common and it leaves the door open for night demons to attack!
MOLESTATION - Being a molester opens doors in three ways. First, it often attaches spirits of perversion to the victim. Secondly, it subjects the victim to a mindset of victimization. In other words, you constantly see yourself as a victim. Remember night demons are sexual aggressors and they want you to feel victimized. Thirdly, molestation is another doorway to fear in your life.
ABUSE – Remember that there are many forms of abuse. These demonic spirits are likened to abusive spouses and rapists who look for victims. An abusive situation is a very comfortable environment for such demons.
EMOTIONAL WOUNDS - Demons take advantage of weaknesses. Being wounded leaves us weak and therefore leaves us vulnerable to attacks. That is why it is so important to be healed.
SOUL-TIES - Godly soul ties are formed when a couple gets married (Ephesians 5:31, "For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh."), and the Godly soul tie between a husband and the wife that God intended him to have is unbreakable by man (Mark 10:7-9). However, when a person has ungodly sexual relations with another person, an ungodly soul tie is then formed (1 Corinthians 6:16, "What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh."). This soul tie fragments the soul, and is destructive. People who have many past relationships find it very difficult to 'bond' or be joined to anybody, because their soul is fragmented.
MUSIC & MOVIES - You can create a soul-tie with music and movies by becoming obsessed with ungodly ones. Which explains the strong pull towards certain media that seems almost irresistible. Satan was the main instrument of music in heaven, and he uses music influence to SIN, and to SET THE MOOD, into the atmosphere. That's why (Col. 3:16 and Eh. 5:19) tells us, and encourages us, to listen to (psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Couples may say, "That's our SONG" and every time you hear that SONG it takes you back to the person it was tied to.
SPIRITUAL WARFARE - Spiritual warfare causes spiritual weakness. We must be properly replenished in the Word and in Worship after engaging in spiritual warfare – this is especially the case when we are warring specifically against spirits of sexual perversion.
