Sozo – a dangerous “inner healing and deliverance ministry”

Before I get to Kim Olsen’s blog post, those who are unfamiliar with Sozo prayer need to know more about it.  First of all, Sozo prayer is the brain child of husband and wife team Bill (self-proclaimed modern-day apostle) and Beni  (New Age guru) Johnson, both of whom are pastors of the infamous Bethel Church in Redding CA.  The word comes from the Greek “save” or “deliver.”  Allegedly Sozo is “a unique inner healing and deliverance ministry in which the main aim is to get to the root of those things hindering your personal connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.”

The Berean Call describes Sozo thusly:

Although claiming to be biblical, Sozo is a problem-solving approach based upon discovering root issues that are blocking spiritual growth. The issues supposedly reside in the subconscious memories of the individual and are identified as a person is regressed by the use of guided imagery and suggestion by the Sozo therapist. Of course, the Sozo therapist is trained to believe that the guided visualization is superintended by the Holy Spirit. This again is spiritualized psychotherapy, using techniques drawn from occult methodologies. (Source)

Sozo is decidedly unbiblical.  And it is dangerous!

Now to Kim’s piece over at DiscernIt.

Guided imagery

Sozo – The Seeking of the False Jesus

Learning about SOZO occurred when I was working with a woman who was dealing with oppression and darkness. Many are deceived when they enter into a spiritual realm that they have no business delving into.

Today we easily find  mysticism, false teaching, divination, abuse of spiritual gifts, and love of experience trumping the Word of God. When you fall into this area the problem is that the spirit world will deliver. Those seeking to be in the “presence of Jesus” will indeed find themselves in the company of a entity but it will not be  Jesus of the Bible. Remember that “Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.” 2 Corinthians 11:14.

Satan is the prince of darkness and well-meaning Christians will fall into the trap and deceitful workmen will also masquerade as “apostles of Christ.”  2 Corinthians 11:13

There are so many who love the Lord and want to serve Him with all their hearts but the way we do this is laid out in the Epistles to the church in the New Testament. We also find many warnings of false teachers in the scriptures.

When we read about Jesus as our shepherd and recognize ourselves as the flock, it must be remembered that sheep are not very smart. They need to be led. They often cannot discern the enemy among who are clothed in sheepskin but inwardly are wolves. These wolves will be found IN the church, they are among God’s people.

Acts 20:29
For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.

The false self-claimed apostles, Bill Johnson, Mike Bickle, Todd Bentley, John Arnott, Todd White, just to name a few, are promising that people can walk among the streets and in the power of the Holy Spirit, heal people of their diseases. Of course this speaks of the pride of man, to be just like the apostles in the book of Acts. These early  men were hand selected by Jesus and therefore Apostles. Paul was the last Apostle. God does still does heal today but not like what we are seeing in these false ministries.  Continue reading

    That is just the old David Seamand’s healing of memories. Jesus was your Spirit guide. david was raised in India where he bought into that. It was big in the 70’s practiced by many. David was a little God at Asbury Seminary even after he got caught in adultery.

      Kate,
      The BEST place to go is the Bible.
      It has ALL the answers you need for your troubles.
      Matt 6:31, 33
      Phil 4:6, 7
      Psalm 46:1 (The whole Psalm)
      Psalm 51
      Psalm 34:4
      Psalm 40:1,2
      Psalm 43:5

      Put your faith in Him and not on man. He WILL get you through the “rough spots”.
      Stay in prayer.
      Remember, you have value. God created you for a reason. Seek that reason.
      When I did, the answer was almost immediate. I have been given a servant’s heart.
      When I put all my effort to serve where ever and when ever I attained a peace that is, as Jesus promised, indescribable (passes understanding).

      God bless you. Stay in prayer and trust in Him.

      In Christ,
      Lupe

      I pray Christians would read their Bible daily, pray and ask God to help us to be obedient to his word. Preferably the KJB. You will not be confused as to what sin is, the reality of hell, or the suffering in this life. Listen to teachers like Justin Peters, Bill Randles, Chris Pinto, if you really want truth, God will lead you.

    • Wanda July 5, 2017 at 1:23 pm #

      Being selective about the church you attend is important. I use Sonlife Broadcasting Network to keep myself grounded in the truth. Check your channel line up. they are also on line.

    hello kate – watch Christian Pastor counselor Patrick Doyle on you tube (the dove) and he has great biblical counsel on almost every relationship problem. he teaches how you can discern who are safe people, hoe to determine if you can trust someone. many professing Christians (even some pastors), today are false teachers, wolves in sheeps clothing. Watch Patricks free you tube videos such as topics titled, unsafe relationships, or setting boundaries, reconciliation, several on abuse and addictions and on depression and forgivness. Also men’s roles and womens roles are also just awesome for helping with our walk with Christ! They are all great and very practical and biblically based. Without resolving conflict/problems Gods way, we may get temporary relief from pain, but we won’t truly resolve anything fully and problems will expand and multiply! it is never too late to turn to Christ and rely on Him fully. Only He can truly heal us! Also, what state and city are you located in and I may know of a bible believing church in your area!

    Sozo is not a good thing to participate in. It has ruined my marriage, my finances are screwed up, my so called friends have disappeared. Life was not a fairy tale but I wish I could go back to the one I had before Sozo. This is hypnosis. I know this now because I am a student of psychology now. PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM SOZO. If you need help speak to a professional counselor or pastor and don’t let anyone talk you into needing Do so.

    The devil cannot masquerade himself as Jesus.

    • Manny1962 March 23, 2017 at 3:47 pm #

      “13For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, masquerading as apostles of Christ. 14And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light. 15It is not surprising, then, if his servants masquerade as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their actions.”

      2 Corinthians 11:13-15

      Satan doesn’t need to masquerade as Jesus, he masquerades as an angel of light. Why go through the trouble specially when ignorant sheeple follow his servants.

  8. Karl April 7, 2017 at 8:07 pm #

    I don’t practice this sozo stuff, but I see nothing unbiblical about it. It is just another form of prayer. Are you saying prayer is unbiblical? I see a lot of stuff being made up about this and stuff taken out of context which is pretty bad for a site that claims to be like the bereans. Can any of you say that the Holy Spirit isn’t working in this manner? No you can’t. If you think you can, you are a fool. If you say that the work of the Holy Spirit is of the devil, then you are worse than a fool because you are opposing God. Remember the Pharisees who said Jesus was of the devil. Well that may as well be you.

    Even if I thought this were unbiblical, I wouldn’t warn people against it, i’d just say to be wise about it.

    • Amy Spreeman April 7, 2017 at 8:59 pm #

      Karl, “SOZO” is a psycho-spiritual deliverance and inner healing methodology. It came out of Bethel church, invented by false “apostle” Bill Johnson himself. The Bethel website says SOZO will heal your “broken connection” with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, so that you can walk in the destiny to which you have been called.

      This is not biblical Christianity. There’s the problem.

    • Manny1962 April 7, 2017 at 10:22 pm #

      “Even if I thought this were unbiblical, I wouldn’t warn people against it, i’d just say to be wise about ”

      Why wouldn’t you warn people about it? Please don’t say because it’s judging!

      • Jean Baue May 25, 2017 at 8:40 am #

        I wish our daughter had been warned away from it. After “counseling” she falsely accused her brothers of gross misconduct toward her, bordering on the criminal. She and her husband live and work 15 minutes away from us, but she refuses to have any contact from us and they have broken off contact with his parents, too.

        Now, we are trying to learn as much as we can about this so we can, hopefully, find a way to get our daughter and son-in-law back. We’re heart-broken.

    • Karl April 9, 2017 at 3:30 am #

      Amy, at some point you can say a teaching isnt scriptual, but we do have a lot of leeway in interpretation of scripture in some respect. Sure, there is no verse in the bible that says “Everyone practice sozo”. So from that point of view you can say it is not biblical. But there are so many practices in the christian church that isnt biblical, like worshipping on sunday and not the sabbath, communion in its common form, tithing as it is generally used, celebrating easter/christmas. None of that is biblical, but I dont think it is a problem when taken in the right context and understanding the purpose behind the practice.

      We all have a broken connection with God. Jesus died to bring us into connection with the Father. Our life experiences bring hurt, pain and affect us in ways we don’t always consciously realise that create obstacles to us being in better connection with God. Now i don’t practice sozo, but I know people who do. At the simplest level, sozo is having an experienced christian helping us to ask the Holy Spirit in prayer to reveal lies that we believe about ourselves that hold us back from enjoying a full relationship with God. There is nothing unbiblical about that. The facilitator is just a helper, but it is the Holy Spirit that does it all. I have seen some people radically changed through this so I know it can be a great tool to help people. I can’t speak against that. Sure you do get the occasional nut who goes off on a tangent and takes things too far, but at the simplest level, I don’t see the problem with sozo and other similar things. Don’t you want to use prayer to remove obstacles in your relationship with God? Or do you want to just struggle for the rest of your life? Of course in all things I tell people to exercise caution and always look to scripture for guidance.

      Manny I guess it is semantics. I always caution people to understand the scriptures themselves and decide for themselves and not believe stuff because some eloquent speaker says so. I don’t attend a Bethel affliated church and I am very cautious about the pentacostal/charismatic movement swinging too far towards the signs and wonders and away from being based upon scripture. But having said that, when taken in the right context, I havent heard anything wrong come out of Bethel. Yet.

      So I’m not going to call them not of God and a bunch of heretics and anyone who follows them will burn in hell. The fact is I don’t know, but I’m not willing to speak against something that could be a move of God and the work of the Holy Spirit. A lot of what I see on websites speaking against churches like them is stuff taken out of context, stuff that is totally misunderstood, hearsay and gossip which in itself a sin.

      But I do like hearing the stories of the people who come out of those churches as it gives me insight into how they operate. So I read these websites to be informed and help inform others, but I am also very cautious speaking against those things.

    glad to have found this article..
    we lost our daughter to this kind of “counseling.” in fact, many have lost their daughters at the hands of mercy ministries (now known as mercy multiplied..referred to as ‘mm’ by me), a residential counseling program. our daughter was there for 8 months to help with her depression. we learned too late that a form of memory regression therapy was in process. she accused us of sex abuse and sex trafficking then rejected us, blocking us from her life. we haven’t seen her since march 17, 2012. mm claims to not conduct theophostic/RMT/sozo .. but the proof is in the pudding – additionally backed up by young women who realized years later what really happened. as long as i have breath i’ll speak out against this heresy, no matter who panders it to the unsuspected and vulnerable. we lost our only child… if not on earth then at the throne of God will they pay for their wicked deeds.

    I haven’t had tons of experiences with sozo, but I am involved in a ministry called Wellspring that works very similarly. I have been doing this ministry weekly for over a year with a woman who went through the process herself 10 years ago and now ministers to other younger women.
    It took me some time to work through bitterness with my family and I was distant for a while. Whenever I have mentioned the prayer ministry I’m doing my family acts weird and it seems to make them feel uncomfortable. I have only brought it up so they are aware there is a process I am going through and deep down I would love it if other family members could get the revelation of truth and healing that I am receiving for themselves. But I have come to a place of resolve that if that kind of healing is not for them I need to be ok with that too. So it sets me apart from them in a way, which is hard. I am experiencing a deepening in my relationship with the Lord and understanding truth and hearing His voice and I want the same for others. But it is a process. And the hurts that are uncovered are deep wounds sometimes. Not everyone knows how to handle this and it is hard. You need a healthy strong support system, and sometimes family cannot be the ones to understand the journey (as I have experienced). But my heart desires to fully heal, experience the truth more clearly and use the freedom from the past to love other people (including and especially my family more). It changes your thinking for sure. But I think an important aspect of this kind of healing is pairing all of it with scripture. The hunger for the Holy Spirit and the supernatural should not be completely overshadow digging into the word for yourself. It’s about an intimate and personal relationship with your Father and creator through Jesus. I am not opposed to sozo and I plan to attend Bethel school of supernatural ministry in the fall. But I appreciate your article and the concerns posted here. I am sorry for those who have experienced a deep disconnect from their loved ones. Let them work out their process.. careful not to be antagonistic to it, which could push them away. Ask the Lord what He wants to show you about yourself through what you’re experiencing from that. I don’t think sozo ministry has any intention to pull people away from their loved ones. But to heal and understand the love of Christ fully. And the process can be quite hard and painful like cleaning out infected wounds. Be patient. Seek the Lord. And love them through their pain and their process. God is so faithful and His love always prevails. Romans 12:9-21 is a good one to pray over yourself and family members. I keep going back to that one the last few years.

    It’s interesting that the name is Sozo and it’s a deceptive practice because there is a phenomenon among many Ouija board users ( i’m not one by the way) but there are many many reports of interactions with an evil spirit who calls himself ZoZo. Theres videos on youtube and articles about ZoZo.

    • Manny1962 July 7, 2017 at 3:46 pm #

      That is correct Maurice.

      “The original symbol was used by Cardano in 1557, which he used as the magickal sigil for saturn, the planet that rules capricorn, Jimmy Page’s Sign. Jimmy took this sybol and changed parts of it. The true meaning is one only known to him. In short it is an adapted occult symbol”

      If you don’t know who Jimmy Page is, he is one of the icons of rock music, he owned Alistair Crowley’s manse at one time, he’s an ardent fan of Crowley, a man so wicked his mother referred to him as The Beast and an antichrist.

        I’m a new believer and almost got sucked into 7th Day adventism, and I came across this article because I have listened to Todd White since I was saved and now I’m not so sure what he teaches is scripturally sound, how can I have better discernment and make sure I don’t follow false teachings/teachers?

        • Manny1962 July 8, 2017 at 9:51 am #

          Hello Maurice,

          The most important thing for a new Christian to do is pray, pray, pray. Then read your Bible consistently, given today’s climate, I would say strive for daily bible reading, we tend to give more time to the world (tv, entertainment, laziness) than to our Creator and Savior, ironic isn’t it. I would recommend a concordance to follow along with your bible studies, Strong’s concordance is popular.

          Lyn, Rascott, Darril, Berlorac, Maggie……can you guys please weigh in?

          Maurice, stay away from anything “Christian” with these words: seeker, emergent, Apostolic, New Apostolic Reformation, Roman Catholic, Rick Warren, Word of Faith, Positive Thinking, Bethel Church, TV channel TBN, any female teachers or “speakers” Joyce Meyer, any TV preacher, health and wealth, name it and claim it, Latter Day Saints, Jehovas Witness, Adventists, Hebrew Roots, any pastor setting dates for prophecies, any pastor stating prophecies that don’t come to happen, such as “blood moons” stay away from anything “supernatural” such as shows, podcasts, they’re false and propagating a sublime false gospel. Anyone claiming direct Revelation from God that goes against scripture, stay away! Those that say you must keep The Law, dates and seasons, certain days, these are legalists. Anyone propagating Social Justice mixed with Christianity, politics with Christianity, anyone telling you we must win this country or culture for Christ, that is false, Christ cares for individuals, not masses not cultures.

          And I can’t stress this enough: ask God to be a light unto your feet:

          Psalm 119:105King James Version (KJV)

          105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

          God protects His own Maurice, it is very easy to fall into a trap as the enemy of our souls walks around like a roaring lion. But don’t be afraid, here is the best advice yet:

          Ephesians 6:10-18King James Version (KJV)

          10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

          11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

          12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

          13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

          14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

          15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

          16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

          17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

          18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

          I would ask all here to pray for Maurice and for all of us. We all know how things are rapidly deteriorating. God bless you Maurice, God bless all my brothers and sisters here. Maranatha, He’s coming back sooner than we think!

        • SusanJ July 9, 2017 at 1:06 am #

          Hi Maurice. Yes read the bible. And if nothing else read the bible asking God the Holy Spirit to teach you.

          Any book or commentary will come from the author’s own particular doctrinal stand and it takes time to figure all that out.

          Jesus and the apostles taught starting with Moses and the prophets. Luke 24:27. There is much to learn from the old testament that will give good foundations for the new testament.

          We teach people from ‘Creation to Christ’ using a book like The Stranger on the Road to Emmaus from GoodSeed. Or Building on Firm Foundations by NTM. Then follow through with their Secure in Christ, Acts, Romans, Ephesians. That will give you a good start.

          Hope that helps and may you continue to grow in the Lord.

        • Maggie July 10, 2017 at 12:32 am #

          Maurice, it’s wonderful to hear that you are seeking to learn sound doctrine. As already said, read your Bible. Study of the Bible continues to get more exciting and meaningful as you grow in understanding. I recently heard someone say that all the instruction you need in life is contained in the Bible because it addresses all of life’s circumstances.

          Simple study aids I would recommend are the website Biblehub.com and a study Bible. I have an NIV (New International Version) study Bible, but I would prefer an ESV (English Standard Version) study Bible. Both are generally accepted as very good translations.

          I agree with SusanJ: “Any book or commentary will come from the author’s own particular doctrinal stand and it takes time to figure all that out.”

          Listening to Chris Rosebrough on piratechristian.com/fightingforthefaith/ really sharpened my discernment and made me more critical (in a good way) when listening to teaching.

          I also hope you are able to find like-minded Christians for fellowship.

          • Maurice July 10, 2017 at 12:10 pm #

            Thank you guys I really appreciate all the thoughtful responses and advice, I thought I stumbled upon a random webpage but it seems like a very tight knit community. I’ve been reading and praying almost every day since my conversion in the end of February and started attending church about a month later, my pastor has given me some good books about the Christian Life that have been helpful as well as a friend of mine giving me a ESV study Bible. The frustrating part is that same friend also gave me a book by John Bevere that I was studying ( about the Holy Spirit) and through finding out about the false teachings of Bethel Church I found out he was a false teacher, I had a Rick Warren book ( luckily I never read it) so I threw that out, my other friend is a 7th Day adventist and when I barely converted I went to Bible studies with his uncle until I researched the adventists. I feel like i’m walking through a spiritual minefield. My goal is to strengthen my relationship with our Lord and have a rock solid foundation of faith, I see so many different avenues where Satan is working and advancing his plans while I feel many of our brothers and sisters are unaware of his schemes and tactics. I got sucked into New age Occult beliefs, psychedelic drugs, and because of it had negative encounters with demons so I know the consequences of opening those doors in ones life, now I see the New Age creeping into some churches so I have a desire to educate about those things so that Christians might be more able to identify and fight against those influences. Again though if i’m going to be any good I myself have to be well grounded in sound doctrine. Sorry If this was a bit too long but thank you guys for the feedback.

            Maurice
            If I may, I suggest that you don’t neglect the Old Testament. Too many Christians read the Bible from back to front if they read the front at all. The NT does not change the promises of the OT. The Church (Body of Christ) is not Israel or the kingdom. Christ is not sitting on David’s throne—in short, the Church does not fulfill the OT but is a new creation seated with the risen ascended God/man Jesus Christ at the Father’s right hand.

            God is superintending a purpose in history to bring about the ultimate separation of good and evil, the eternal separation of good and evil. The entire word of God (whole counsel) is revelation in regards to His plan and purposes and is beneficial to us.

            I also encourage you to stick around, read and participate in conversations here. Even when there is disagreement you will sharpen iron and practice thinking through why you believe what you believe—according to scripture of course.

          • Maggie July 10, 2017 at 2:57 pm #

            Maurice,
            Unfortunately, your assessment that church can be a spiritual minefield is correct, mainly for the reasons, in my opinion, that many pastors are not teaching rightly but chasing trends and the people are neglecting studying the Bible so they don’t know better.

            You will find yourself in situations with other Christians where you question false and even dangerous teachings, and they may not appreciate it at all. Don’t take it personally. A lot of people just don’t want to know, so don’t lose heart when you sometimes feel like the odd man out.

        • berlorac July 10, 2017 at 3:37 pm #

          Maurice, if you’ll allow me to throw in my two cents…

          I’ve learned more from reading commentaries and other theological books from the 1800s and early- to mid-1900s than I ever did in any church. Get a copy of William R. Newell’s commentary Romans Verse by Verse. You’ll have to ignore the couple of times he praises Finney. Other than that, it is the most spiritually grounding book I’ve ever read. It is a must for all believers and if you can learn this foundation of Christianity before you get side-tracked by false teaching, so much the better.

          As rascott said, learn the big picture first; that is, God’s plan for the ages. Couple that with Paul’s doctrine in Romans and you’ll have a solid foundation. I would recommend not moving on to Ephesians and Colossians until you’ve thoroughly understood Romans — I mean, backwards and forwards. Not that you can’t read those other epistles. I’m just saying, too many Christians want to do one of two things:

          1. They camp out in Yeshua’s earthly ministry, which is, primarily, NOT directed to the Church. If you get stuck here, you’ll undoubtedly be confused, mixing one dispensation with another, and may have a sense of duty or law put upon your conscience. You may even have confidence in the flesh to be able to be a “Christ follower.”

          2. They move straight on to the mystery of the Body and the grace wherein we live and walk. If this happens, it is almost inevitable that they lose sight of the righteousness of God being vindicated at the Cross through the wrath poured out on His Son and, thus, they tend to have a dim view of the seriousness of sin.

            In response to Berlorac’s comment, I just want to point out that B is coming from a dispensational view of theology, which I don’t agree with. Having said that, I respect B as a brother in Christ and value his comments.

            We have the same understanding that the work of salvation is entirely by grace, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and not by any works of the believer = the true gospel.

    Maurice, I can’t stress enough how utterly important it is to pray! From your testimony, God has opened your eyes to see how false teachings/teachers are a dime a dozen, be weary, put on the armor of God, He will guide you and protect you. Read scripture daily, give your time to God, we live in dark days, scripture is under attack, specially by those that call themselves followers of Christ, but are not! Don’t let anyone rob your joy in Christ! God bless you, keep on the narrow path!

    Hi. I left a comment about my Sozo experience last night. Did it not get accepted?
