SozoLife: Healing for your Soul

Healing for your Soul

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.[1]

“My life is falling apart! I ache inside for peace and love, but I don’t know why I cannot have it. Does God really love me?” That day I was sitting with an anxious, thirty-something year old, who was over weight and appeared to be forty-something. The stress line map on her face indicated dashed dreams, fragmented expectations, and shattered promises. This is not the life Father God wanted for her. She continued, “I always have a sense of cold darkness around me. I feel like I’m isolated, alone, depressed, and hopeless. There have been times that it is all I can do to get out of bed in the morning. It is like a dark depression that is mixed with fear and anxiety.” I am not sure if anyone in my 30 year counseling ministry experience had as many words to describe her condition. I thought, how could someone so in touch with his or her feelings be so far from hope? There is a difference between knowing what you feel and knowing how to resolve emotional conflict.Continue Reading..

The Signs are Here! Awakening!

The signs and wonders in our midst. Behold, I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion. Isaiah 8:18 KJV “’Signs, signs, everywhere are signs. Can you see the signs?’ is what God was saying to me. God is asking the Church, his body; can we rightly discern the signs of the times and understand them?” Is what John Harris greeted me with as we were sitting down for coffee. Then he said, “I had a vision, I saw two major earthquakes hitting the US, both as a result of our government turning its back on Israel. We must repent for the sins of the USA. We must stand in the gap and ask the Lord for mercy, grace, and life. As a nation, we have been given much, more than any other nation in history. To whom much is given, much will be required. I have also seen this country go into great revival, but in this vision we were also in a place of humility on our knees before the Lord. As we were kneeling in prayer the Lord elevated the church to a high place, a place above not beneath. There were coliseums full of people being saved, healed and delivered. I could hear the testimonies Continue Reading..

Breakthrough Prayer

Do you remember being told as a child not to ask for anything? I remember, don’t ask for anything when we get to your friend’s house. I also remember telling my children not to ask. Don’t ask for candy, for favors, for friendships, for special treatment, or for what they wanted.

Now I see this was a big mistake. If you do not ask, you can’t receive. If you do not want, you will not have desire. Faith is predicated on a desire, and an appropriate time to ask. Jesus said ask and it shall be given you. He also said my father knows what you need before you ask.

So instead of teaching my children how and when to ask, I was teaching them to be their own source, and only to expect in life what they could produce through their own efforts. I apologized to my children, but now they will have to establish a new strategy for living. Hopefully, they will learn what I was unable to teach them.

I believe God loves to give his children what they want. This issue came up in me when my oldest son Steven and his wife Jen needed a car. Continue Reading..

Do you have demon oppression? 20 Question Guide

A life with demon tormentors is not fun. It is torment and oppression, with fear continually. They will try to pass themselves off as good, human, and your friend but nothing is FARTHER from the truth. They have a clear purpose that was taught by Jesus. In the first century, Jesus, the Son of God talked about demons on a number of occasions and here are a few…Continue Reading..

How to have Peace of Mind

Have you ever needed peace of mind? Has peace alluded you? As if peace was just within your grasp, but faded away at the last second. It seems that an absence of peace, effects our sleep more than any other part of our life.

Sleep studies have been made, for example: “According to the National Institutes of Health, 50 to 70 million Americans are affected by chronic sleep disorders and intermittent sleep problems that can significantly diminish health, alertness and safety. Untreated sleep disorders have been linked to hypertension, heart disease, stroke, depression, diabetes and other chronic diseases. Sleep problems can take many forms and can involve too little sleep, too much sleep or inadequate quality of sleep.”

Why So Much About Demons?

Are they there? Can an invisible being hurt me? Why so much about demons? Many people are tormented and do not know why. I have felt a massive urgency to write about demons or fallen angels. (Job 1:6,7) Many times disease is driven by a demon. Disease is invisible and torments the soul of man. Like the picture in this post, the artist paints angels and demons, but seeing them and dealing with them is another matter. Mystery surrounds the spirit realm, but do not fear Jesus was manifested to destroy the works of the devil. (1 John 3:8)

And there was war in Heaven

And there was war in Heaven

It is absolutely astonishing to me how many people in the west; Europe, England, America and Canada believe that the Spirit realm is a myth. I have talked to people who live by their wits and they will say heaven is not real, hell is not plausible, angels are a work of your imagination, and demons are the ghosts of dead people. In other words, “IT IS ALL IN YOUR MIND!!!” But when Jesus walked on earth he taught his disciples and his followers how to defeat them. He said, the enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but I have come to give you life and life more abundantly. (John 10:10) First, satan is you enemy not God’s. Two, the enemy’s purpose is to steal, kill, and destroy. Third, the way to defeat him is Continue Reading..

A SozoLife Weekend: Columbia, SC

A SozoLife Weekend: Columbia, SC – March 20-21, 2015

SozoLife4I invite you to A SozozLife Weekend: Columbia, SC  March 20-21, 2015

Can one week-end really change your life? This weekend will be a weekend to remember. Life is not only measured by the moments that pass on the sundial, life is measured by the moments that mark our heart with God. You can map your life with these memories.

A SOZOLIFE WEEKEND is planned to give you a new GOD WORLD VIEW, give you the tools to fight the good fight of faith, show you how to resolve the unresolved conflicts in your soul, and teach you how to bring healing to others. YES, this weekend can change your life. There is no charge for the weekend, but a offering will be taken.

A friend stopped by and told me His story, and now I want you to hear a part of it.

“What do you do after you go to the altar and give your heart to Jesus? After I received Christ many years ago, I found myself without direction, and began to blow as a leaf in the wind. I did not know what to do. I asked many people during the years, “what do I do now?” They said, “Do you have a Bible?” “No.” “Then go get one.” So I went and got one, but did not understand what I read.

As a result, I had and kept a truckload of baggage. I did not know what to do with all of the garbage, so I began to be disillusioned with the churches I attended, because no one could tell me what to do with my sin, and how to change my life. As a result, I was caught between two worlds, between the bondages that were pleasurable, and I really enjoyed, and the life that I did not have any understanding of. Now, where were my friends? I didn’t have any.

After many years of breaking I moved to the mountains of western North Carolina and during the course of conversation with one of my oldest and dearest friends, I hear the word Sozo. The word was so silly sounding that it caught my attention. I said, “What is that?” And he said, “It is a process of how to deal with all of the baggage and garbage in your life, after you become a Christian.” In that moment, I knew I wanted to know more about it. And in that moment, I was pissed off and said, “How long has that been around?!” I drew out the word long to exaggerate my sense of frustration. I am sixty-one and have lived a life of pain, suffering, fear, anxiety, disappointment, and failure. It was like living hell on earth, because I had no idea about what to do next. I had been living in the misery of darkness and confusion, been through four wives, and have three sons that I haven’t seen in over twenty years. Because I did not know how to deal with all the garbage or how to live in my new life. There was no practical guide book. I needed someone to take me aside and say, “I am in the business of spiritual garbage recycling. Let me show you how to get rid of this crap and turn it into fertilizer.”

I had a desire to walk with God, but I did not have the experience of knowing how, until SozoLife. I even had a voice that came to me and said, “God hates you and that is why your life went the way it did. He wanted you to be in pain.” But the Lord used the process of SozoLife to open me to the Lord’s eternal Love, give me a way to resolve past conflicts, and show me how to walk with God. Now, I know how to hear God, I am dealing with all of the garbage in my heart and life, and I am free. Now I know what to do after you give your heart to Jesus. God is not finished with me yet, but I have more hope than I can ever remember.

If you find yourself anywhere in this story, or you know someone who is, the process given in A SOZOLIFE WEEKEND will help. This weekend will be a weekend to remember. Life is not only measured by the moments that pass on the sundial. Life is measured by the moments that mark our heart for God. You can map your life with these memories.

Lightning Strike

The day that Pope Benedict resigned, lightning struck the Vatican’s most holy building, not once but twice. Was this a chance happening? Here is a picture and a video that someone recorded.

Lightning striking the vatican twice

When I was in grade school, I was taught that you could never know where the lightning would strike. I was taught that an electrical charge created by the environment of a storm would discharge its power at random. So I was taught to take shelter and wait for the storm to pass. Now that is good advise, and I have lived by that advise.Continue Reading..
