FTA: So what is Sozo?
The Sozo ministry or Sozo prayer started in Redding, California, in 1997 by Bethel Church — a nondenominational charismatic megachurch. The idea was inspired after a healing evangelist, Randy Clark, held a prayer training at the church.
“Sozo” is a Greek word that the ministry’s founders, Dawna DeSilva and Teresa Liebscher, two leaders at Bethel, say is found in the New Testament 110 times. Strong’s Concordance translates the word as “to save, keep safe and sound, to rescue.” Liebscher defines it specifically as “to be made whole.”
My comment at Beth’s blog:
FTA: The Bethel Sozo website describes Sozo ministry as “a unique inner healing and deliverance ministry aimed to get to the root of things hindering your personal connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.”
~sigh~ Only those who don’t pray for forgiveness of sins, which is what comes between us and our forgiving, merciful God, will think they need to learn this but they will find the enemy of their souls deceiving them into thinking this technique has restored them to His good graces.
