Where deliverance from demonic oppression is concerned, torment can be a blessing. Torment wipes out the delusion that “all is well” and knocks off the rose-colored glasses. The tormented one is pressured to search for answers and solutions–something that he would not have even considered if he had not desperately sought release from the torment.
Everything I know about torment comes from working with others because I have never personally been tormented by either devils or demons. Tee has had some excellent insights on the subject:
If you have some desire to go back to your “former” ways of trying to get relief from your torment, then you will not be set free. You don’t desire the truth. All you want is relief from torment, and you will do anything to get it, not realizing that the very vomit you keep returning to will take you deeper and deeper into deception. This is a key thing that is missing with a lot of folks who come to us. They are DESPERATE for relief from torment. We get that. But, instead of submitting to truth, they take desperate measures and end up going right back to the very situations that have put them in torment in the first place. So whether it’s something religious you are used to doing, or something from the occult, you’ve got to realize that you are addicted to those things…and THAT IS THE ENEMY’S HOOK ON YOU!!!! You will have to use your God-given will to resist the temptation to return to those things.
I have cast out demons from the tormented and they were set free from torment but still in bondage to other things. In such cases, they still maintained the same belief system, personality and character flaws that served as both strongholds and demonic doorways for the tormentors. Will the torment come back on them? Maybe, maybe not. One thing I know as of now. NONE OF THEM ARE BORN AGAIN.
