Spirit Traps Meeting
For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matthew 6:21 AKJV)
A treasure is something of great worth. It stirs up our soul: We think about it, we desire it, and it inspires our passion. When your soul is continually stirred up, what you focus on may cause your spirit (heart) to be tied to that thing. This is like opening a door to your soul which is your mind, will, and emotions. When that door is open, there is an opportunity for a spiritual influence to come and take root.
His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be held with the cords of his sins. (Proverbs 5:22)
When we are emotionally stirred up for something that isn’t from God, we can be bound with ties in the spirit. One way technology opens a door in the spiritual realm is when we come into agreement with someone:
...if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven…” (Matthew 18:19 AKJV)
When we come into agreement, our spirits are united in Heaven. This creates a spiritual bridge that leads back to our physical bodies on Earth which the enemy can see and use. This is what we call a soul tie between the two people. In this modern day and age, this can be done as we watch things through the internet and TV. There is no distance in the spirit.
Can two walk together, except they be agreed? (Amos 3:3 AKJV)
The Hebrew word ya`ad is translated agreed, however it also means betrothed or come together to become allied or similar in nature or quality. When we come into wrong agreement even if it is to protect ourselves or someone else, this agreement unites us in the spirit realm. It may allow spirits to flow into our lives from the spirit realm. This is often done with words alone. We see a warning about giving wrong words a place in our lives as well:
The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to the inmost parts. (Proverbs 18:8 NIV)Words are powerful. If we entertain gossip and join in, a tie goes down to our “inmost part” or our soul. We don’t have to be physically with the person, even if it is through written words or videos, we can partake of gossip and find ourselves under attack. When we like, share, or even watch a video on YouTube, we are supporting these things. As a Christian, we should consider what we are supporting. What endeavors are you lending your voice to? What spirits are you giving a place to by agreeing (liking, sharing) or listening to, as you watch videos? You may be thinking about films with sex, violence or witchcraft in them. It is true that we should guard our heart against these, but I found a “free” one hour version of a video about religious leaders on Youtube and was very disturbed by what I saw. While watching this video, a deep fog settled around my head. I knew the video was wrong, but I couldn’t put two thoughts together to understand why. The evidence presented was short clips taken out of context with a lot of accusations and a lot of people saying how great the full video was. The only thing I could pinpoint was that it was nothing more than an hour-long teaser for the version that you had to pay for.
This is the same tactic used in the Garden of Eden. Eve had added to what God said and Satan used that:
“But of the fruit of the tree which is in the middle of the garden, God has said, You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.” (Genesis 3:3)God only said not to eat it. Eve added the touching. The snake (Satan) urged Eve to touched it and perhaps when she found that it didn’t harm her, so she also ate it. When things are twisted and taken out of context, when things are added to it, the enemy has an opportunity to lead us astray.
This tactic of inflaming facts to draw attention is not new. The evening news figured out years ago that more people watch bad news. Videos may slant the facts, presenting a wrong view to stir up fear and condemnation so that you will like and share so they can make money!
Short comments in this particular video was taken out of context to condemn others - this is not honest or the TRUTH and God is TRUTH. It is easy to pick things apart and stir up a mob, but can you dig through some of the flesh and see the gold underneath? If you have a correction for these men, send them an email.
It was the Pharisees who stirred up the mob to condemn Jesus.
When His disciples wanted to call down fire on those preaching the Gospel but not associated with Jesus, the Lord said, "No. He who is not against us is for us."
“Touch not my anointed, and do my prophets no harm.” (1 Chronicles 16:22)When someone has been anointed by God, we are not to come against them. King David was a man after God’s own heart. When Saul was being tormented by demons and sending armies to kill him, David would not attack Saul because he was anointed by God even though David, himself, was also anointed by God.
In 2 Samuel 12 God sent a prophet to correct David for the killing of Bathsheba's husband. The prophet strongly rebuked David for his actions. Nathan the prophet was sent to David to give correction, not to stir up the populous against him. Unless you are a prophet and are sure you are hearing from God to give a correction, you should not touch God's anointed!
Because I had listened to the words of this video that were meant to stir up anger and outrage, a spiritual influence had come upon me. After I spent time in God’s intense presence and broke all soul ties, the fog lifted and I could think again. That was when I knew I had to write this article and warn others to be careful of what you are exposing yourself to.
Don’t entertain things that stir up your passion for things that are not God, His Word (Jesus), or the Holy Spirit! It creates an open door that may let the enemy hinder you from receiving guidance from the Holy Spirit. When something is coming against an anointed man or woman of God, this is the most dangerous type of video; listening to it may cause a spiritual hindrance.
What you find in some videos and posts are meant to stir up people who will LIKE, SHARE and WATCH, so that a profit can be made. Because they are invoking intense emotions in a skewed manner, it leaves our spirits open to influences that are not from God. If you like or share prayer requests and say amen, you may be coming into wrong agreement which could bring an attack from the enemy as well.

Be careful not to come into agreement with wrong prayers. God doesn’t work through fear and condemnation.
DON’T LIKE, SHARE or even WATCH these types of things!If you have learned something today and would like to learn more:

Believers' Boot Camp series
Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
- Knowing what weapons are available
- Learning how to use those weapons
- Receiving orders and following them
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father.
The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.
