Oprah Discerns A Demon In Eckhart Tolle’s Pain Body – A New Earth Free From Demonic Influences

While Oprah and Eckhart Tolle reviewed chapter 5 of the book A New Earth, the two discussed “the pain body” as Eckhart calls it.

Tolle: “But don’t underestimate the pain-body’s ability to draw out some, to make you unconscious again, to push some kind of button, and you will find yourself reacting again. Because pain-bodies are very cunning, very clever. And they know exactly what will make you unconscious and what will make you react.”

Oprah: “You speak of it like it’s a creature that’s like an alien force inside of us. Yeah”

Tolle: “Yes, that’s how I see it.”

Here both Eckhart and Oprah identify the demonic activity that seeks to tempt and torment us all, which ultimately causes torment and brings havoc into our lives. Jesus said the devil, whom He calls a thief, comes to “kill, steal, and destroy” (John 10:10). The first thing Satan’s demons seek to steal from humanity is their time because life consists of time. Demons seek to mentally bombard us with thoughts, temptations, and accusations so they can bog us down within the brain. To overwhelm our thoughts with excessive external stimuli thwarts the spiritual life within and causes our souls to be restless. Once our souls are inwardly troubled and restless, demons can more easily get us to a place of unconsciousness where we easily react.

A woman from Canaan came to Jesus crying that her daughter was grievously vexed by a demon spirit (Matthew 15:22).

A demon spirit vexed one man’s son causing him to be lunatic and often times making him to fall into the fire and water (Matthew 17:15).

Jesus healed many people who suffered with various diseases caused by unclean spirits who vexed them (Luke 6:18).

Peter in like fashion as Jesus also dealt with demon spirits troubling people causing illness and healed them (Acts 5:16).

Even the great apostle Paul who wrote two-thirds of the New Testament, acknowledged he was buffeted by a troubling demon spirit. Seemingly, the Lord allowed the spirit to occasionally tempt Paul to keep him dependent on the Lord’s power. The apostle Paul says in his own words: “And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure” (2 Corinthians 12:7).

So even the great apostle Paul was not above temptation and the occasional demonic visitation that he in the Lord’s power had to overcome. Concerning the demon spirit, Paul said: “For this thing I besought the Lord three times, that it might depart from me. And Jesus said unto me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you: for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me” (2 Corinthians 12:8-9).

And so too must we trust in the Lord and the Holy Spirit’s power to drive out demon spirits that would come trying to trouble us. The battleground is in the mind. Jesus was crucified at Golgotha, which is the place of the skull (Matthew 27:33). Given that there are no meaningless details in the Bible, we must see the connection between life and death. The crucifixion occurred at Golgotha the place of the skull, because after the mind and thought is adequately dealt with, we can be free to experience the power of the resurrection and live in the Spirit.

Invite Paul to your city to set people free from demons!

Lakeland, Florida Revival – Todd Bentley & Fresh Fire Ministries – God Healing, Saving & Empowering

A Pastor from Auckland, New Zealand named Rob DeLuca prophesied several months ago a revival that is now taking place in Lakeland, Florida.

A 30-year-old by the name of Todd Bentley who God has raised up from Canada (Fresh Fire Ministries) is spearheading the revival. My wife is a Canadian from Toronto, Ontario. I was up there once in February and thought I was going to die. It was so cold I could feel it in my bones.

There was an amazing amount of healings I saw occur the two evenings I attended the Florida Revival Outpouring in Lakeland – May 4th and May 5th. Diabetes was healed, as was a girl with leukemia, a man deaf in one ear, an elderly lady came out of a wheelchair, and so much more!

An adult whose parents are ministers grew up bitter thinking his parents loved the souls of the world more than him. He got born again, giving his heart to Jesus, and forgave his parents.

Who knows when my wife and I are ready to start making babies, maybe we will move back to Canada where they don’t charge ridiculous medical fees to bring newborns into the world. I pray there be many born into the kingdom of God through this revival and all those to follow from those who learn to move in the Holy Spirit with a burden for souls.

Todd is a great man of God with sincerity, humility, and a genuine passion for Jesus. It’s beautiful to see what God is doing through Todd, an ex-convict who gave his life to Jesus and has since touched 65 nations and led over 1 million souls to Christ.

Keep your eyes on Jesus and keep crying out to God to revive you and your city!

Charisma Editor Lee Grady questions Lakeland Florida Revival expressing concern, caution & warning

Charisma editor Lee Grady takes a conservative & cautious look at the Lakeland, Florida Revival.

gmail.com

On May 14, 2008 Charisma’s editor stated “honest questions” & concerns below. Thereafter Paul F. Davis an international minister & author of God vs. Religion; Supernatural Fire; & Waves of God gives his thoughts and admonition to Grady and Charisma.

Grady: “…But as the noise from Lakeland grows louder and its influence spreads, I’m issuing some words of warning…”

Davis: “What you call ‘noise’ Lee is the roar of the young lions breaking forth in the earth with the zeal of the Lord. They may not speak, dress, act, or maneuver according to the clever dictates of professional men within Christendom, but they possess faith that works by love which casts out fear and throws caution to the wind.”

Grady: “‘Beware of strange fire. The name of Jesus is being lifted up in the Lakeland revival, and three people came to the altar for salvation the night I attended. Larger numbers have come to the front of the auditorium to find Christ every night since then.”

Davis: “If the name of Jesus is being lifted up in Lakeland, we need not worry. If man’s name is being lifted up, let us beware. The two services I attended in Lakeland, Todd was careful to exalt & uplift Jesus. Should his heart, manner of ministry & focus change the glory will leave. God doesn’t share His anointing with carnal & vain men. When God’s glory leaves, the people will as well. As long as both are present, let us rejoice in the risen Christ.”

Grady: “Yet I fear another message is also being preached subtly in Lakeland—a message that cult-watchers would describe as a spiritual counterfeit. Bentley is one of several charismatic ministers who have emphasized angels in the last several years.”

Davis: “Cult-watchers should not be our concern, as they are not discerning themselves. True discernment begins with awakening to that which is good (Hebrews 5:14), not merely hunting that which is evil (see Romans 16:19). When we are enamored with evil, we ourselves become evil. We become what we behold (see 2Corinthians 3:18). Ultimately we attract & attend to what we ourselves are, as our perception leads to our personal detection & projection.”

Davis: “What a man or minister did several years ago, need not have any bearing upon what they believe or do today. Shall we ask what you did several years ago? A person’s past does not have to dictate their future. As for angelic visitations, these are common throughout Scripture. We should seek God, not angels. Yet should the Lord choose to send an angel to answer our prayers, we should not limit the holy one of Israel.”

Grady: “…Paul was adamant that preoccupation with angels can lead to serious deception.”

Davis: “Agreed, heard, understood & acknowledged.”

Grady: “We have no business teaching God’s people to commune with angels or to seek revelations from them. …We need to remember that Mormonism was born out of one man’s encounter with a dark angel who claimed to speak for God.”

Grady: “Beware of bizarre manifestations. …where do we draw the line between legitimate experience and fanatical excess?

Davis: “Christ never called ‘we’ His disciples to ‘draw lines’ but to love and lift people. Jesus said let the wheat and tares grow together. The Lord Himself can remove the weeds and pluck up that which He has not planted” (see Matthew 13:30; 15:13). To my knowledge Bentley isn’t teaching ‘God’s people to commune with angels,’ neither to seek them.”

Grady: “…Paul called for discipline and order …In other words, Paul was saying that no one under the influence of the Holy Spirit should act out of control.”

Davis: “The apostle Paul said ‘let all things be done decently and in order’ (1Corinthians 14:40). Before trying to harness, discipline, and order a move of God; first let it flow and ‘be done’ before endeavoring to structure and order it. Grady and Charisma can write about revival, but until they can birth and do revival they should not criticize, nor seek to contain it.”

Davis: “People under the influence of the Holy Spirit respond in innumerable fashions. Since where the Holy Spirit there is liberty (2Corinthians 3:17), people can respond to God freely and don’t need Grady’s permission to do so.”

Grady: “In many recent charismatic revivals, ministers have allowed people to behave like epileptics on stage… such behavior feeds carnality and grieves the Spirit.”

Davis: “What feeds carnality and grieves the Spirit is the arrogance of men like Grady who fight a move of the Spirit rather than supporting and birthing one. Casting out demons and healing the sick is not always pretty to the professional eye.”

Grady: “…emotional euphoria doesn’t guarantee a heart change. …When we put bizarre behavior on the platform we imply that it is normative.”

Davis: “Being a Christian critic and unbelieving believer doesn’t produce a heart change either. A heart of unbelief breeds evil and causes people to depart from the living God (see Hebrews 3:12).”

Grady: “Beware of hype and exaggeration.”

Davis: “Beware of embracing an evil heart of unbelief and becoming a Pharisee who knows the Scripture, but not the power of God” (Matthew 22:29).

Grady: “The church is in a backslidden state and our nation has rebelled against God.”

Davis: “Perhaps you and Charisma magazine are as well. Yet if you will rend your hearts and go hard after God with humble desperation, the Lord of life will revive you with the power of the resurrection.”

Grady: “In our longing for a holy visitation, however, we must be careful not to call the first faint breeze of the Spirit a full-fledged revival. If we do that, we are setting people up for disappointment….”

Davis: “Instead of trying to label and name a revival, call out for it in prayer in your own life. I find no disappointment in revival, only in those who try to deny and restrict it.”

Grady: “Some of the language used during the Lakeland Revival has created an almost sideshow atmosphere. People are invited to “Come and get some.” Miracles are supposedly “popping like popcorn.” Organizers tout it as the greatest revival in history.”

Davis: “According to your faith, be it unto you (Matthew 9:29). Better to go to God’s show than Hollywood’s. Better to get ‘some’ of God’s glory than dead religion. If Charisma and Grady don’t like ‘some’ than let them change the name of their magazine to Jesus instead of promoting their ‘some’ and new ‘someone’ on the cover every month.”

Grady: “Let’s stay humble and broken before the Lord ….miracles and crowds alone don’t guarantee a revival. …It was the few disciples who followed Jesus after Calvary who ushered in a true revival—one that was bathed in the fear of God, confirmed by signs and wonders, tempered by persecution and evidenced by thousands of conversions, new churches and the transformation of society. We should expect nothing less.”

Davis: “Thanks for providing the persecution Lee. We’re almost there! Now, please teach us humility and brokenness. Perhaps you can match the commitment of Mormons to go overseas for 2 years to birth a true revival of your own. Until you can win as many souls, birth as many churches, and transform societies be quick to hear and slow to speak. As Jesus said the fruit speaks for itself (see Matthew 7:20). I pray we all keep our hearts and eyes on Jesus. Beware of trying to steady the ark or seeking to straighten the flow of God’s Spirit lest you be swiftly judged (1Samuel 6:6-7; Micah 2:7). If this revival is of men, it will cease and be brought to not (Acts 5:38). If however it is of God, it shall continue unhindered full force with signs and wonders as God confirms His holy Word with power (see Mark 16:20); Hebrews 2:4).
