Bethel Sozo Resources



We get a lot of questions about Bethel Sozo ministry. For those who have been around a while, this is pretty much Elijah House counseling for the 21st century.

There are six tools incorporated into the SOZO model:
•Father Ladder
•Four Doors
•Presenting Jesus
•The Wall
•Trigger Mechanisms (Advanced Tool)
•Divine Editing (Advanced Tool)


Of these, Divine Editing probably causes the most concern, but the entire system is flawed- and mostly because it IS a system. But I'm going to let you study the material and make up your own mind. So here are our Sozo resources:

Bethel does not post a lot of information on the web, because many of their Sozo facilitators support themselves by putting in seminars and selling material. They train others to train, and so it goes (Amway model). Even the logo is trademarked.

The Freedom Resource has published a lot of material based on the Bethel sozo training.

Sozo is very closely related to Elijah House type theophostic counseling. These two documents will help you to understand what this all about.
