The Bethel Sozo at Lapis Lazuli Ministries Nigeria, is a unique inner healing and deliverance ministry in which the main aim is to get to the root of those things hindering a personal connection with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is not a counselling session but a time of interacting with The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit bringing about freedom and wholeness.
With a healed connection, you can walk in the destiny to which you have been called. This ministry is from The Bethel Church in Redding, California, that is run by Pastor Bill Johnson. The ministry was founded by Dawna Da Silver and Theresa Liebscher.
‘Sozo’ which is used 110 times in the New Testament, is a Greek word σῴζω meaning “to save or make well or whole”. “Sozo” also means, “to save, deliver, heal and preserve”.
Phonetic Spelling: (sode’-zo).
Examples of New Testament, verses that describe the three aspects of “Sozo are as follows:
“That if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you shall be saved (Sozo).” Romans 10:9
“But Jesus turning and seeing her said ‘Daughter take courage your faith has made you well (Sozo) and at once the woman was made well (Sozo).” Matthew 9:22
“And those who had seen it reported to them how the man who was demon-possessed had been made well (Sozo).” Luke 8:36
BACKGROUND TO THE BETHEL SOZO MINISTRY
In 1997, Dr. Randy Clark, a healing evangelist, held meetings at Bethel Church, Redding, California. He sent a team to train a congregation on how to be prayer servants. Some of the training was a model of “deliverance” from Argentina. This model became the first tool, “The Four Doors”.
Dawna DeSilva, the leader and founder of the Bethel Sozo Ministry, attended this training at Bethel. Afterward, Dawna began to use the concept of “The Four Doors” when she prayed for people. Seeing a miraculous difference in people’s level of freedom, the “Bethel Sozo Ministry” was birthed. As Bethel Sozo Ministry developed, the Lord introduced other tools that have aided in people being healed and released from the wounds and lies which have hindered those individuals from being connected to the Godhead and to their destiny.
From 1998, The Bethel Sozo Ministry team started travelling world wide to train and equip other churches and organizations, to start their own Bethel Sozo Ministry. The Bethel Sozo Ministry has expanded quickly and it’s being carried out in over 75 nations of the world.
