The real roots and history of sozo: Randy Clark of Toronto Blessing, jungle and barnyard animal behaviors, Bethel Church, Argentina and more
Please check out my book for more in-depth information on this topic! Thank you!
In 1997 Randy Clark, a healing evangelist, held meetings at Bethel Church. At that time, Pastor Clark would send a team to train a congregation how to be prayer servants. A small portion of that training was a model of ‘deliverance’ from Argentina. This model became our first tool ‘The Four Doors’.
The above is a direct quote from http://www.bethelsozo.com in the history section. Elsewhere in this section, it states that the “Lord introduced” these tools for this healing ministry.
- Father Ladder
- Four Doors
- Presenting Jesus
- The Wall
- Trigger Mechanisms (Advanced Tool)
- Divine Editing (Advanced Tool)
Johnson and the Arnott’s hold conferences together. Here is the Arnott’s position on wild animal noises, another cultic behavior, but one that is definitely not their most sociologically damaging.

you confirmed my suspicions
Yes…test the spirits..n counter check with the scriptures.. there was never such a thing even when jesus was healing..n exorcising demons..these are not scriptural …luke ..11.35…This is new age mysticism from the mystery religions…demonic at best
what's the fruit
Good- isn't it amazing those suspicions are God watching out for us? I praise Him for His mercy and goodness.
Mysticism, yes absolutely.
A friend of a fb friend of a Christian acquaintance asked to be my friend. What's the harm, I asked myself, and added him. All seemed fine at first, until he was blogging on Christians need to be performing miracles as Jesus did by…. \”levitating\”, and we should be \”Teleporting\” across miles as miracles to draw others to Christ. I wasn't quite sure of what the proper term was, but felt the need to warn not only this man, but his audience as well. I told him that what the Word of God said was that Jesus rose to the Father, and levitating was NOT what Jesus did. I said it was a new age term or something, and we are not to mix ourselves up with new age. After telling him that he was risking being a false teacher, and leading people astray I deleted him from my fb friends, because he continued to blog his false teaching. Over the past 10 yrs or so, I have heard of some churches ignoring the \”test the spirit according to the Word\”, and just doing whatever draws a crowd I guess, or allowing all kinds of craziness. It worries me, because they sprinkle bits of the Word into what they are saying to make their comments/teaching sound solid biblically. Yet, upon close examination, adultery, fornication, sexual sin, covetness, unforgiveness, gossip, and every evil work is running rampant. We must absolutely test all teaching using the Word of God to validate its soundness.
