Sunday Inspiration: A Tribute to John Paul Jackson

22 Feb

What do we who live in the Jacob generation do?

Psalm 24:1-10 – The earth is the LORD’S, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, And established it upon the waters. Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the LORD, And righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face. Selah. Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah

On February 18, 2015, John Paul Jackson, a respected spiritual giant and hero of mine, went to be with the Lord peacefully at his home surrounded by family and loved ones. I have felt such a grief in my spirit since even though I never met John Paul in person. As I write this message, I have tears in my eyes – tears of sadness and tears of gratitude for the mark this man left on my life.

I AM - 365 Names of GodJohn Paul played a big role in developing my faith to help me persevere through tremendous trials to get to where I am today. After purchasing John Paul’s CD “I AM – 365 Names of God” in 2009, I listened to that more than 1,000 times. That helped me understand my true identity and authority in Christ.

Several years ago, John Paul visited my good friend Lynne Lee in the U.K. Lynne and I had talked about hosting John Paul on a webinar about dreams. John Paul Jackson was perhaps the foremost authority in the world teaching about interpreting dreams and knowing how to do that.

My friend Phil Zaldatte, founder of Prolific Leadership Solutions, traveled around the world for six years with John Paul Jackson learning to interpret dreams at a master level.

It’s interesting that in early October 2014, Gary Beaton prepared his outline for the 12 topics he would cover in his Soaring Into Your Destiny training and the Week 7 topic happened to be Life is Like a Dream. Several weeks ago before messages were sent globally to pray for John Paul, Gary emailed his outline for Life is Like a Dream to me and in that included a message about John Paul Jackson, Streams Ministries International, and Dream symbol cards by category.

Who would have ever guessed that Gary Beaton would be scheduled to release his message “Life is Like a Dream” on the day after John Paul’s passing? We had several hundred people from around the world on that webinar and Gary paid a special tribute to John Paul. I felt that was the most profound message Gary has delivered thus far in his Soaring Into Your Destiny series and because of these most unusual circumstance, I have been inspired to make this video for Soaring777 members available to the public for five days (until Noon EST on Friday February 27).

A world shaking event will take place between Sept 2014 and Sept 2015. Are you ready?

John Paul Jackson (30 July 1950 – 18 February 2015) was an author, teacher, conference speaker, and founder of Streams Ministries International. Jackson often focused on supernatural topics like dreams, visions, and dream interpretation as found in the Bible. He developed a number of prophetic training courses. He was the host of Dreams & Mysteries on Daystar television. He was also a recurring guest on many shows that include The 700 Club, Sid Roth’s It’s Supernatural, Benny Hinn’s This Is Your Day program, and Joni Lamb’s Table Talk among others.

Yesterday, I was led to this outstanding short video – “John Paul Jackson: A Father’s Blessing” and recommend you listen to that to receive that precious gift from above.


This morning while preparing this message, I was led to find and watch this prophetic video with John Paul – “The Coming Perfect Storm – A Vision of America’s Future 2008 to 2018”. We are living in turbulent times and it’s important to understand the times and who to respond.


Blessings to help carry the torch that John Paul Jackson lit!
