Sozo - Healing In Music
Great Father wants you well!
is a Greek word meaning wholeness; much like the Hebrew word Shalom. God did not send his Son to condemn us but through Him we might be saved (John 3:17). Even though the writers were Jewish, the original text of the New Testament was written in the Greek language (business language of those times). The word “saved” in John 3:17 comes from the Greek word “Sozo.” Sozo is often translated "saved." We interpret that word to mean forgiveness and many have reduced “saved” to only mean forgiven. Sozo includes forgiveness, but goes much farther!
Sozo refers to the spirit, soul [mind, will and emotions] and body; and in that order. When you hear anyone referring to "body, soul, spirit," be aware that this is an incorrect order of priorities as evidenced by the Word of God and not related to Sozo or Shalom. (1 Thessalonians 5:23) God is a Spirit (John 4:24) and we are made in his image so our focus should always be on the Spirit first.
In fact, forgiveness is not even a part of this word’s definition. Sozo means to 1) save a suffering one (from perishing), i.e. one suffering from disease, to make well, heal, restore to health, deliver from peril, to be made whole! and 2) To preserve one who is in danger of destruction, to save or rescue.
We have witnessed our heavenly Father heal His people as they enter into worship in the presence of holiness, and in the power of the anointing of the Holy Ghost. We have seen deaf ears opened, bones straightened out, stage four cancer healed , confirmations of MS healing and several delivered from drug and alcohol addictions and the pains of childhood sexual assaults.(PTSD). Glory to God!
The First Nations people have long known that music glorifying Creator brings healing to the body and peace to the soul. For years folks have shared with me that the native wind flute music soothes their soul and they have received healing after listening to the “Maracle” Mohawk wind flute that I use.
I Samuel, Chapter 16 tells of a famous Hebrew King who trusted the words of his servants and music to bring peace to his soul. King Saul trusted the words of his servants; how much more should we trust the Word of God for our wellness!
