SOZO LOVE ministry’s goal is to show God’s love for ALL His children by sharing the Gospel and Leslie Jackson’s personal testimonies.

Because SOZO, a Greek word, is translated as
SAVED, HEALED and DELIVERED. 1Peter 2:24 is a verse that speaks to the magnitude and LOVE of what Jesus has done for us. “Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”
SOZO contains the entirety of being made whole or well, it is a “package deal”, and is used 110 times in the bible. Shown below are the bible verses where you will find SOZO used in the Greek translation. The partial verses shown here are the King James Version. To fully understand the verses you will want to read the verses before and after.
