Profile: John Paul Jackson

john_paul_jacksonJohn Paul Jackson is a fifth generation Christian. Before he was born his mother carried him in the womb for exactly eleven months. While she was still pregnant, an angel appeared to her and told her she was to name the child John Paul. The angel explained to her she was carrying the child for eleven months as a prophetic sign because the child was going to have an eleventh hour ministry warning people about end times events.

From a very young age, John Paul was gifted in seeing things before they happened. His parents encouraged him to use his gifts by pursuing a prophetic ministry but John Paul did not want to do that. He went to work in Fort Worth, Texas, working in the corporate world. While he was in his office working one day, the Lord orchestrated an event that changed his life.

The Lord instructed prophetess Ruth Ward Heflin to go to Dallas because there was a young man there who was gifted in dreams and visions but was resisting the call of God on his life. God instructed her to do a radio program on dreams and visions to awaken this young man and that he would call into the program and when he did it would change his future.

So when Ruth Ward Heflin was broadcasting this live radio program John Paul was listening to the program in his office. As Ruth Ward Heflin shared what God had told her to do and told about the young man God spoke to her about, John Paul was listening and started praying for that young man, not realizing he was that man. The dreams and visions discussed on this program touched John Paul so greatly that he closed his office door and cried out loud. Even then, he thought he was crying because he was interceding for that young man. He then felt the Lord prompted him to call into the live radio program, still unaware that he was that man. As he was calling in, the Lord started showing him, “It is you!” Still not convinced, John Paul said to the Lord, “If they take my call live, then I will believe it is me.” Normally, callers were put on hold and very few were put on live radio. However, when John Paul called in they answered the phone saying, “Hello, you are live on the air!” Immediately, Ruth Ward Heflin said to him, “Young man, what took you so long to call?”

John Paul started Streams Ministries International. Today, through his books, videos, webinars, dream interpretations, and speaking engagements he is using his prophetic gifts to interpret dreams and share visions of things God has shown him about the future.

John Paul Jackson finished his race on February 18, 2015 when he died of cancer.

I don’t know which preacher to listen to anymore. I used to listen to a certain Bible teacher and his bunch. But everything changed since the late eighties and early 90’s. Now with them it is all about the money. If you don’t give the full tithe, and the first fruits, like another Bible teacher said, (and I had to back it up and listen again) you will go to hell! And another said the people who don’t tithe should be taken out back and shot! I had to go back and hear that again. I thought I was trippin! If these people are right, it is a miracle Jesus didn’t turn to the thief who was on the cross next to him and say, did you pay your tithes this week?

I came across John Paul Jackson recently and felt inspired to listen to teaching again. Because for a long while I didn’t trust anyone’s teaching anymore. And now I found out he died! The comments on your website here have helped me to cope with that. Because I was like why God? Now I feel that there may have been a reason for his death. Because in some way it was like a seed planted for something to grow inside of me. Like the eleventh hour had now past. And perhaps John had finished his work so now it was time to go home. Because the 12th hour has now begun. at his death. This morning I was distraught about it all, now i read these comments and feel like I needed to hear this. Thank you.

James, I have been going over the stream media teachings of JPJ the past days on an intense level. The grieve in me will not leave. I have had what I would call mentors in the past by book and media. Kenneth Hagin, Norvel Hayes, Derek Prince and David Wilkerson…etc and others. When they died I did not struggle with their death, though when Wilkerson died, I did for a few days. Wilkerson was the only man with the guts and divine authority to rebuke the excesses and abuse of Benny Hinn and others. We need his correction today among the prostitutes on TV and in ministry, especially the seed faith bunch. Trust me. However, JPJ had the most amazing ministry that I am beginning to appreciate more and more. Did his death ignite something in me? Is it igniting something in others? Fruits of the spirit were his strongest suites. He had amazing gifts but was humble. I can not believe that just when I was starting to focus on his ministry and life he died? How do you see his death? The timing? The gifts? He appeared to have been surgically healed of a soft tissue sarcoma and then dies of inflammation of the lungs? Pleurisy? it is difficult for me to get my mind around all this and his life? His incredible ministry. We need this guy. Desperately. He was rare.

Linda, I am glad you posted a comment on this article of John Paul Jackson that I did not know of. When he was in great pain, could have been dying from pancreatitis, God did something so amazing that reveals to us what He will do for His people. His short story starts at 2:20.

James, I apologize. I may not have explained my point very well? I agree on the 11th hour issue and the unusual gestational period of his mother’s pregnancy but I am referring to a dispersion of JPJ’s gift in “prophetic dream interpretation” to the body of Christ? I inquired with the Lord on this matter and was told to study and learn this gift from JPJ. Now this immediately caused me concern because the gifts of the HS are not learned but are divinely given. However, one learns how to be more proficient with the gift over time and with experience. You can not teach one to prophecy. For me it is a prompting and I know the first 3 or 4 words and as I write down or release those words, then the rest comes in clusters of words, until I write it all down or speak it all out. It seems like JPJ obtained a skill of understanding symbols, numbers and dream events. He states that most dreams fall into a group of 20 different kinds. He pulls out the focal core of the dream and then pulls out the connecting sub-points in the dream and relates them all together in his analysis. I wonder if this ability relates to his prophetic gift? We know Daniel and Joseph had this gift but there is no discussion of it in the NT? When I inquired on this matter, I was reminded that in the end times old men would have dreams and interpreters would be needed for the increase in this occurrence. I am apprehensive to investigate this gift and its workings because so much of it appears to be speculative or subjective?Yet, watching JPJ video clips gives the impression he is operating by prophetic insight? He has developed… Read more »

Man was I bummed when I heard JPJ went home. We need this guy. I rarely complain to the Lord on minister’s who pass but this time I went outside for a long walk and rang Heaven’s doorbell. This guy is one of the sweetest guys you could ever meet. Just had an incredible peaceful spirit on him. One of the KC prophets who ran with a group who made mistakes in the 80’s but learned, adjusted and was used in a greater way then ever before, until his death. Now that is growth and maturity. An example for us all. See ya in eternity JPJ.

A few years ago, I had the privilege of attending John Paul Jackson’s teaching session. shortly after he started teaching, his eyes scanned the room with awareness as he said, there are 2 witches here. You know who you are.” He always had keen Divine eyes to spot the dark workers since he was young.

Then he continued to teach. That session was amazingly Anointed with heavy download from Heaven.

Many years ago I was principal at an elementary school in the Klein School District in Spring,Texas. I had a student by the name of John Paul Jackson. He had a very successful father and a lovely mother and some siblings who were also in my school. Through my dealings with the family it became obvious to me that they were strong Christians. The father left his job and I think it was to go onto ministry. I met the father on only one occasion and most of my dealings were with his lovely wife. Could this Prophet, John Paul Jackson, be the father of that child? As I watch John Paul Jackson on U-Tube, I cannot help but notice the similarity between the father of that precious little boy and the Prophet, John Paul Jackson.

I have been watching John Paul Jackson on You tube . I don’t know how I came across his site and I know that it was the grace of GOD because he enlightened me about so much that I feel GOD had put this in my mist. I listened to Mr.Jackson’s topic on Strongholds and have repented to GOD as suggested on the show, by John Paul Jackson and his Guest speaker.
His teachings are so empowering, I feel he is lead by GOD and have been moved by his topics. On a different note, I would like to ask him to pray for a situation her in my island country. A visitor came to our island from Canada and has gone missing since May 2 2014 . There has been a total search but no trace of him to date and I have been distraught by this travesty along with our fellow Bermudians. I feel sadness for his family who came down recently to retrieve his wife and look for him. Please can you pray to the LORD asking HIM to show us where he can be ….. HE is 67 years old Canadian lawyer and had short memory lost. according to his family and suffered mild seizures as a result. He went for a late night walk and They feel he got disorientated and lost , frightened , and has hidden somewhere ,not knowing where he is. PLEASE Intercede on his behalf. Blessings.
