Many things like sin and trauma can fragment our soul. The fragmented parts of our soul can be within our body, while other parts can be outside of our body.  A captive soul is where a part of your soul is fragmented and separated from the core of your soul and held prisoner by the enemy.  More often than not it is outside of your body.  When I first learned of the captive soul I struggled to believe that parts of our soul could be outside of our body. The Lord showed me that there is no time or space in the spirit realm and trying to analyse all this from an earthly perspective is impossible.  I have been shown also that some captive souls can be held in Hades or even the second Heaven where satan operates from. When in these places there is an element of torture involved.

When experiencing a traumatic event, as a means of self-preservation, a portion of your soul fractures and remains disconnected until both the trauma and any associated wrongdoing are addressed and resolved. The enemy will take up residence around that fragmented part and cause torment. The part of the soul that is fragmented remains trapped in that trauma suffering it repeatedly.

The Lord once told me that the soul cannot be taken captive unless there is rebellion, disobedience or a sin involved.  This may also include ancestral sins. In regard to the captive soul we see in the Bible when the children of God are rebellious or disobedient against God they get handed over to the opposing nations to be captured as slaves.   Isaiah 5 shows us that disobedience toward God enabled the Godly hedge of protection to be removed, and the disobedient people being taken into captivity. When we are rebellious or disobedient a part of our soul can be handed over to the tormentors. And his master was angry, and delivered him to the torturers until he should pay all that was due to him. “So My heavenly Father also will do to you if each of you, from his heart, does not forgive his brother his trespasses” (Matthew 18:34-35, NKJV). In this example a fellow servants master forgave him his debt, and in turn the fellow servant refused to forgive another their debt towards him.  The unforgiveness was the sin that enabled this man to be handed over to the tormentors.

The following Scriptures show us that we need to be released from captivity -

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord” (Luke 4:18-19, NKJV). The word bruised in Greek is Thrauō and means to break in pieces, shatter, smite through.

The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound. (Isaiah 61:1, KJV).  The word captives in Hebrew is šāḇâ and means to transport into captivity:—(bring away, carry, carry away, lead, lead away, take), drive (take) away.

For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. Those who sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, Bound in affliction and irons— because they rebelled against the words of God, and despised the counsel of the Most High, Therefore He brought down their heart with labor; they fell down, and there was none to help. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, And He saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their chains in pieces. Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He has broken the gates of bronze, and cut the bars of iron in two (Psalm 107:9-16, NKJV).

“I, the Lord, have called You in righteousness, And will hold Your hand; I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people, As a light to the Gentiles, To open blind eyes, To bring out prisoners from the prison, Those who sit in darkness from the prison house” (Isaiah 42:6-7, NKJV).

Releasing the Captive Soul
This is the method the Lord has taught us to use in Ministry. 

(PRAY) - “I ask the Holy Spirit to please show me if there are any areas of my soul in captivity.” (Wait on God - If He has shown you areas of captivity continue with the next parts).

“Father God please show me the trauma that caused my soul to be held captive”. (Write it down).

Repentance - “Father God please show me all sins which enabled parts of my soul to be handed over to the tormentors.” (Wait on God, **** If any sins are shown repent and/or forgive as needed.  Break any ungodly soul ties between yourself and anyone involved and cast out any demons shown then pray also the prayer below.

I am sorry for all rebellious, sinful and disobedient acts on behalf of myself and my bloodline against You God, Your Son and Your Holy Spirit and also against mankind, those You have placed in authority and Your creation.”

Releasing False Protection - I speak to the wall of protection I have created and tell you I no longer need you to protect me, as this is false protection.  I declare that My protection is my God given walls and they are called salvation (Isaiah 60:18).”

“I now ask the Godhead to release me from captivity.” (The reason I have put to pray and ask the Godhead is I have found many people struggle with trusting God the Father or even Jesus. Wait on God and He will show you a picture of Who is rescuing you (Father, Son or Holy Spirit).  Interact with them as you are lead by the Holy Spirit.  It may be that you are reluctant to go with a certain member of the Godhead due to lack of trust.  You may need to repent for not trusting and ask them to help you to trust. The Holy Spirit will lead and guide you as to what you have to do before you can be rescued. Once you have discerned that you have been rescued pray the healing and integration prayer below.

Healing - (Pray) - “Lord, please minister to the wounded soul. Please restore and place back into alignment all pieces that were held in captivity. Pour in the healing balm of the Holy Spirit and cause your healing to radiate all around through spirit, soul and body. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. (Psalm 23:2-3, NKJV). I ask that You would destroy all prisons of captivity.  Thank You for rescuing me, In Jesus name, Amen".
