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.
