Is ‘Sozo Healing’ Biblical?

I am not familiar with Real Life Ministries; however, I have found this message to be true.  “Sozo healing” is not Biblical.  It is a rather new practice invented by a lady named Dawna DaSilva from Bethel Church in Redding, California.  Many religions perform healing rituals.  This one (sozo) was never done by earlier Christians nor the disciples.  Sadly, this healing ritual is spreading like wildfire into churches that should know better and “test the spirits” as Jesus commanded His followers to do (1 John 4:1).  I have done my research on… Read More

Beni Johnson posts another photo of herself on Instagram in cemetery!

  I am so thankful that a reader of Bethel Sozo Research sent in a photo of Beni Johnson’s Instagram page from about a week ago.  Thank you! I have seen a similar photo before on Beni’s Twitter page.  She is posting these photos of herself in cemeteries hugging or somehow embracing the gravestones of dead people.  I wrote about that previously and posted a photo of her hugging a gravestone. What do you think of this?  Would God command someone to go hug a gravestone containing a dead body?  The spirit… Read More

Escape the Lie, An Interview

Update: For some reason, the link provided is not working as it once did.  Hopefully ‘Escape the Lie Radio’ can fix the problem soon.   Update 2: Use this link instead to listen to interview – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAAqatnhPms&feature=youtu.be Here is a great interview of M’Kayla Kelly by Escape the Lie Ministries. God is using M’Kayla to lovingly inform and warn the Body of Christ of the dangers of a movement that is spreading like wildfire. M’Kayla was once involved in this movement and by God’s grace, she has escaped. This movement has already penetrated… Read More

Proof that there is a similarity between Gnostic teaching and Bethel Church doctrine

Gnostic heresy in churches today: a post from Bethel Sozo Research Group and a reminder of the upcoming ‘Holy Spirit Conference’ at International Church of Las Vegas (ICLV; Paul Goulet) in July 2013

http://www.bethelsozo.blogspot.com/2013/06/gnostic-heresy-interesting-find-in.html The above is a new post from Bethel Sozo Research concerning Bethel Church (Redding, CA; Pastor Bill Johnson) and their public teaching about Christ’s lack of divinity.  This is the same church that International Church of Las Vegas (Pastor Paul Goulet) invites to their conferences to speak. There is another upcoming “Holy Spirit” Conference this summer on July 28-31, 2013 featuring Bill Johnson from Bethel Church and Banning Liebscher from Jesus Culture (Banning is also from Bethel Church). Please browse this site for further research conducted on these teachers and their… Read More

An online question about sozo: What do you observe from this photograph? An interesting discovery…

Update: The photo below is of a ministry by a man named Avi Segal called Healing With the Light.  Christians, please be aware that this is a ministry which is similar to sozo in the testimonials, but this ministry supports the theory of “past lives” as seen in a session with “the light” many years ago, and therefore is unBiblical according to Hebrews 9:27.  Be very alert and test all things!  Even though people claimed nice results after their sessions, it does not mean the ministry is Biblical/Christian.  We must compare everything… Read More

International Church of Las Vegas (Paul Goulet) and Bill Johnson Connection

Proof: Three Pieces of Evidence that Bill Johnson Teaches a Non-Divine Jesus Walked this Earth A few churches in the Las Vegas area openly support and are publicly affiliated with Bill Johnson of Bethel Church in Redding, California.  One of these churches is International Church of Las Vegas (ICLV).  ICLV’s pastor (or some say apostle) Paul Goulet can even be found in Johnson’s public favorite friend list which lists many questionable ministries, even some who have promoted strange manifestations in Christian circles such as acting totally drunk and acting like a (quote from their own ministry… Read More

Sozo and ‘Healing of Memories’

“And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”  Luke 9:62  During sozo sessions, practitioners may have the client close their eyes, use visualization and go back to a memory of the past – “speaking into” that memory or to a person in that memory.  Closing Stages Ministry explains, “There are a variety of memory-healing psychotherapies masquerading under Christian terminology today, the most deadly are ‘regressive’ therapies designed to probe the unconscious for buried memories to be… Read More
