Deliverance Teaching: True Prosperity
2Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. [3 John:2 KJV]

God desires our souls prosper. Prosperity is not a once-for-all step into wealth be they material, financial or otherwise. True prosperity is steady progress in the spirit. Your soul is the covering for your spirit. Your soul is the first contact point by the spirit world. Celestial (angels) or terrestrial spirits (powers of darkness and demons) do not directly relate with your body as they are not physical beings, just like we relate with other humans on the surface, what we can see-our senses.
Once evil spirits have kept a man’s soul bound, they have held him except a higher power commands such spirits to go. This is the power of the Holy Spirit operating in the life of the believer. The name of Jesus and the blood of Jesus are important warheads that expel evil spirits that have held a man bound in the spirit. The anointing of God on oil such as olive oil blessed by a minister of God in this area of ministry can also be used to break every bondage particularly on the soul.
To properly understand what spiritual bondage means, compare it to the physical and then extrapolate this to the spiritual. Bondage is like tying of ones legs or hands or both to stakes. The person cannot move the hands. Even other parts of the body will feel the discomfort and sooner or later would start to complain succumbing to sickness. See how difficult someone whose hands or legs or both are under cuffs. If the cause of a sickness can only be traced solely to spiritual attack from the spirit world, then that soul is equally bound. This was the case of the woman who had been sick for 18 years until she was healed by Jesus [Luke 13:16]
