On Wednesday, February 18, 2015, international speaker, author and founder of Streams Ministries International in Flower Mound, Texas, John Paul Jackson, passed away due to medical complications.
In a statement released by his family, his wife Diane said, “On behalf of the entire Streams family, I want to thank everyone for the prayers and outpouring of encouragement we’ve received over the last year. After recovering miraculously from cancer surgery last summer and returning to the activities and ministry work he loved, we found out a few months ago that the pleurisy and inflammation John Paul was experiencing in his lungs could be a sign of something more serious. Despite the heartfelt prayers from those closest to him and many of you around the world, my husband, John Paul went to be with the Lord peacefully at our home this morning surrounded by family and loved ones.”
Known for his gift of interpreting dreams from a Biblical basis, he founded Streams Ministries as a teaching institution to empower others to exercise this same gift.
“God has told us to equip those so that when we leave this earth somebody else will know how to do what we do,” John Paul said in a recent interview. “I said to the Lord, I will teach everybody I can how to do everything I do.”
In 1993, he established Streams Ministries International as an extension of that promise! Since its inception, it has offered classes and resources as a means to teach, motivate and encourage individuals to walk in greater spiritual maturity, and John Paul shepherded its growth and development over the last two decades.
His vision to teach the world led to an invaluable relationship with Daystar Television Network, an international Christian Television broadcaster located in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. As a result, Daystar launched the program “Dreams and Mysteries with John Paul Jackson” in 2013, which reaches into every country around the world. Currently, the third season can be seen on Daystar, Tuesdays at 12:00 p.m. CT and Wednesday at 3:00 p.m. CT, or on Daystar.com.
“John Paul Jackson was not only our dear friend but one of God’s Relevant Prophetic Voices that will be greatly missed. His graduation is our loss but Heaven’s gain,” says Marcus and Joni Lamb, founders of Daystar Television Network. “Our love and prayers are with the family, his staff and all those who have been ministered to by his gifted teaching and ministry. We will see him again!”
Driven by a determination to empower generations to come, he leaves behind a legacy that he summed up best when he said, “We are to live a life for the sake of others. Not for our own sake.”
John Paul Jackson is survived by his wife Diane, son Aaron Jackson and daughter-in-law Jennifer Jackson, son Micah Jackson, and three grandchildren, Kyler, Lauren, and Brett.
