VISIONI was examining our glue and I saw that the contact cement was not the right kind of glue needed, but the rubber cement was. Contact cement is an instant aggressive and clingy bond.  Rubber cement dries slower and is more flexible, like pliable rubber.  It is used as temporary bonding material that can come off with easy removal and damage free. 


As I ponder this, I understand the level of bonding the Lord is asking of His people in relationships and soul ties is to remain flexible so that there is total freedom to come and go as the Lord leads.  We love others with a commitment as unto the Lord, but we give them freedom to come and go more freely.  The level of tenacity and grip expects less commitment and is more pliable to honor people’s free will.


There are different levels of bonding between people.  Soul ties are when 2 souls are knit together as in the case of David and Jonathon.  Their commitment to one another was life and death that was a vow that lasted between their descendants.  This is in essence Contact Cement.  Super glue is another name for contact cement and anyone who has ever accidently put a drop on their finger and touched it to something, knows the ripping of the flesh in tearing the finger away! 


1 Sam 18:1-4 NKJV

Now when he had finished speaking to Saul, the soul of Jonathan was knit {7194} to the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul. 2 Saul took him that day, and would not let him go home to his father's house anymore. 3 Then Jonathan and David made a covenant, because he loved him as his own soul. 4 And Jonathan took off the robe that was on him and gave it to David, with his armor, even to his sword and his bow and his belt.


OT:7194  KNIT

qashar (kaw-shar'); a primitive root: to tie, physically (gird, confine, compact) or mentally (in love, league):

KJV - bind (up), (make a) conspire (-acy, -ator), join together, knit, stronger, work [treason].


1 Sam 20:41-42 NKJV

As soon as the lad had gone, David arose from a place toward the south, fell on his face to the ground, and bowed down three times. And they kissed one another; and they wept together, but David more so. 42 Then Jonathan said to David, "Go in peace, since we have both sworn in the name of the Lord, saying, 'May the Lord be between you and me, and between your descendants and my descendants, forever.'" So he arose and departed, and Jonathan went into the city.


We remember how Jacob was knit to his son Benjamin.  This was the same soul tie, beyond the grave.


Gen 44:30-31 NKJV

"Now therefore, when I come to your servant my father, and the lad is not with us, since his life is bound up {7194} in the lad's life, it will happen, when he sees that the lad is not with us, that he will die.


Jonathon was the son of Saul who was a type of king that did not obey the Word of the Lord, even though he sacrificed to the Lord.  Later the Lord took the anointing off Saul and passed it to David who was a man after His own heart.  This is a parable of the sons from denominations being knit together with those of the chosen, anointed ones who are called by God to lead.



The use of being knit together in the NT is being knit in God’s Agape love for one another. This is a healthy, united, affectionate love where we are glued together in God and His family. The word agape has its base in a logical choice to love, as in a decision and less of a clingy emotional love.  When we are knit together, in the Gk it means to be organized and framed together where we connect in united association and fellowship.


Eph 4:15-16 NKJV

Speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head — Christ —  16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together {4883} by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.



sunarmologeo (soon-ar-mol-og-eh'-o); from NT:4862 and a derivative of a compound of NT:719 and NT:3004 (in its original sense of laying); to render close-jointed together, i.e. organize compactly:

KJV - be fitly framed (joined) together.



sun (soon); a primary preposition denoting union; with or together (but much closer than NT:3326 or NT:3844), i.e. by association, companionship, process, resemblance, possession, instrumentality, addition, etc.:

KJV - beside, with. In composition it has similar applications, including completeness.


Col 2:1-2 NKJV

For I want you to know what a great conflict I have for you and those in Laodicea, and for as many as have not seen my face in the flesh, that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together {4822} in love.



sumbibazo (soom-bib-ad'-zo); from NT:4862 and bibazo (to force; causative [by reduplication] of the base of NT:939); to drive together, i.e. unite (in association or affection), (mentally) to infer, show, teach:

KJV - compact, assuredly gather, intrust, knit together, prove.


Other types of soul ties


PARABLE:  Today our grandson played with a sticky hand, that is made out of rubber.  He tied the sticky hand between the 2 railing posts that are like gates opening to our sunken living room.  So in essence, it was like a rope saying no access, but it was also a parable of bridging the gap to form a wall.  He was leaning against the stretching line and when I saw him do this, it reminded me of David’s sling shot and Goliath.  Papa warned him that it would break and finally it did and flung wildly.  It broke the tie and the little “o” at the bottom of the line landed in the other room.  It looked like a little rubber life saver.


As I ponder the rubber “hand” I see that it connects with the buzz word, “contact” glue.  The fact that he was inappropriate leaning on the tie put too much weight on it and caused it to break.  This is true with inappropriate ties we have with people, the Lord only wants us to lean on Him and keep our ties with people pliable movable.  When I consider the rubber, I feel the Lord is saying that He wants us to understand the difference between the types of contact we have with people that He brings into our lives. 



Tao’s Vision: I stood in front of a big door which 2 sides of the door were held together by the rubber string. I needed to untie the string in order to come in. I started untying the string and I did it with great care. It took me longer that I expected to untie it. Finally the door was open.


As I pondered on it, I sense that untying the string is the time of transition; we need to walk prudently in the transition time. Since rubber is a resilient material, I consider it is important to be resilient, flexible in going through the door.


A new season/beginning is upon us, what is on the other side of door? I was impressive in reading the scriptures:


"But I will stay on at Ephesus until Pentecost, 9 because a great door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me." (1 Cor 16:8-9)


We just passed the Pentecost; verse 9 above is coming into view.

{End Tao Word}


SANDY COMMENTS:  The Lord gave Tao his Word on the same day as my rubber Word, they were meant to connect.  As to the application of soul ties, I feel the Lord is saying that in order to open a new door, old soul ties with the past need to be separated without breaking, so there is access to a new place. 


For me personally, I was raised a lonely and only child and when I found what it was like to join a Christian community, I married the whole concept of cement – soul tie - glue, hook line and sinker.  As the years passed it was difficult for me to say goodbye when it came to important decisions of letting go in order to follow the Lord.  I finally learned to guard my heart so that it was not so painful, and yet still truly love with His heart in the process.  I have learned the same lessons in intercessory assignments, where I am willing to come and go as the Lord leads me and not take life long vows and pledges in these regards.  God honestly does not like vows and we are warned against them. 


James 5:12  NLT

But most of all, my brothers and sisters, never take an oath, by heaven or earth or anything else. Just say a simple yes or no, so that you will not sin and be condemned.



Dear ones, you have gone through a very long season of many people coming and going out of your life.  You have rolled with the punches and grown up learning to lean on Me and no other.  Good job!  Yes I do want you bonded with those I have placed in your life but knitted in such a way that does not grasp, only honors free will and freedom to follow My will. 


Always remember to guard your heart so that you hold others with an open palm, and not with a grasp that wont let go.  I AM not asking you to make vows and commitments that last until death and beyond. Rather I AM asking you to simply love people with My compassion as you walk into new open doors with great opportunities to reach people with My Word.  Enjoy the relationships that I bring you with a new freedom away from your past.  Remain flexible in your expectations of people and allow them to come and go as they please. 


Prov 4:23 AMP

Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life.


Eph 4:15-16 NKJV

Speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head — Christ —  16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together {4883} by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.




HEARD:  Sacrifices.  To let go in order to hold lightly.  It’s a concept few understand.  Pure, untainted. It’s volunteer love without strings.
