The Cross Applied to Demonic Torment

15 May

The true power and meaning of the cross is often overshadowed by an emphasis on sin yet what about torment? So many today are suffering from some sort of torment inflicted by demons. Perhaps that is because it has not been sufficiently taught and emphasized that the Lord Jesus Christ also bore our torment for the chastisement of OUR peace was upon Him and with His stripes, we are mentally and emotionally HEALED. Why should we endure torment when the Lord has already done so on our behalf so that we might not have to endure it?

Something to think about.

there are certain circumstances wherein God allows torment.  He has His reasons.  If He did not allow it, these entities would not be able to cause torment. God allows it for several reasons.  The most important is to let you know that something is wrong. Torment is a sign that points to the work and influence of deception. In such cases, you would never know the truth and you would continue to give the enemy more control over you by your ignorance. Overcoming the torment will make you ready to help others who are enduring the same affliction that you have overcome. 


Did not the Father suffer cause Jesus to suffer mental and emotional torment as He died on the cross?  Why? So that He would overcome death forever for Himself and for those who believe on Him.  
I have a course on torment.  Below is a small sample, an article and a video. I offer the course for free so send an email request to getreadyfoethelord@gmail.com and you will be sent the complete free source.

Herein, let us focus upon the prophetic report of both Isaiah and David, a word revealed to them hundreds of years before the Lord went to the cross and endured our torment for us.

Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, And as a root out of dry ground. He has no form or comeliness; And when we see Him, There is no beauty that we should desire Him. He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way; And the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment, And who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; For the transgressions of My people He was stricken. And they made His grave with the wicked— But with the rich at His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was any deceit in His mouth.

Did not the Father cause His Son to suffer torment on the cross for US? Take a look at two key prophecies declared by two Old Testament prophets, Isaiah and David.

Therefore I will divide Him a portion with the great, And He shall divide the spoil with the strong, Because He poured out His soul unto death, And He was numbered with the transgressors, And He bore the sin of many, And made intercession for the transgressors.Isaiah 53:1-12 –
This was God the Son’s personal torment on the cross, as prophetically foreshadowed the prophet Isaiah centuries before it happened.


David saw it too. the Father revealed to David the Lord’s mental anguish and torment.


My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? Why are You so far from helping Me, And from the words of My groaning? O My God, I cry in the daytime, but You do not hear; And in the night season, and am not silent. But You are holy, Enthroned in the praises of Israel. Our fathers trusted in You; They trusted, and You delivered them. They cried to You, and were delivered; They trusted in You, and were not ashamed. But I am a worm, and no man; A reproach of men, and despised by the people. All those who see Me ridicule Me; They shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying, “He trusted in the Lord, let Him rescue Him; Let Him deliver Him, since He delights in Him!” But You are He who took Me out of the womb; You made Me trust while on My mother’s breasts. I was cast upon You from birth. From My mother’s womb You have been My God.

Be not far from Me, For trouble is near; For there is none to help. Many bulls have surrounded Me; Strong bulls of Bashan have encircled Me. They gape at Me with their mouths, Like a raging and roaring lion. I am poured out like water, And all My bones are out of joint; My heart is like wax; It has melted within Me. My strength is dried up like a potsherd, And My tongue clings to My jaws; You have brought Me to the dust of death. For dogs have surrounded Me; The congregation of the wicked has enclosed Me. They pierced My hands and My feet; I can count all My bones. They look and stare at Me. They divide My garments among them, And for My clothing they cast lots.

But You, O Lord, do not be far from Me; O My Strength, hasten to help Me! Deliver Me from the sword, My precious life from the power of the dog. Save Me from the lion’s mouth And from the horns of the wild oxen! You have answered Me. I will declare Your name to My brethren; In the midst of the assembly I will praise You. You who fear the Lord, praise Him! All you descendants of Jacob, glorify Him, And fear Him, all you offspring of Israel!

My praise shall be of You in the great assembly; I will pay My vows before those who fear Him. The poor shall eat and be satisfied; Those who seek Him will praise the Lord. Let your heart live forever! All the ends of the world Shall remember and turn to the Lord, And all the families of the nations Shall worship before You. For the kingdom is the Lord’s, And He rules over the nations. All the prosperous of the earth Shall eat and worship; All those who go down to the dust Shall bow before Him, Even he who cannot keep himself alive. A posterity shall serve Him. It will be recounted of the Lord to the next generation, They will come and declare His righteousness to a people who will be born, That He has done this.Psalm 22:1-31 –
So to all those in demonic torment, on the cross, Jesus took your torment upon Himself. He bore it SO THAT YOU WOULD NOT HAVE TO BEAR IT. So Tell your demons THAT!!!!!!

I have been born again for 43 years and I have not been tormented even one day, before or after. What is the difference between me and you? Nothing other than your mind has been a garbage can that allows evil spirits to have its way and my mind has been at peace, shielded by His shed blood for me on the cross.

Once you receive the work that God Himself suffered for your torment, your obsessions will stop and the evil spirits in your mind will be cast out and bound by His cross where He was crucified with the chastisement of Your peace taken upon Himself.
