Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
John Paul Jackson is now face to face with his Savior.
The news was posted on John Paul’s Facebook page Wednesday afternoon. His condition had been degrading through the weekend and urgent prayer requests had been sent out Monday because of falling oxygen levels.
Jackson was diagnosed with cancer in May 2014 when doctors found a large growth in his leg that they identified as an aggressive form of cancer. The tumor was described as “nerf football sized” and weighed 12 pounds when it was removed through surgery.
At the time, Jackson praised God for allowing his sciatic nerve to be saved and that he would be able to walk again. He also said he would be fighting through prayer.
“I am pursuing the kingdom of God and equipping people to do the same as vigorously as I am able. I refuse to allow the enemy a stronghold in my thoughts. God is great and all-powerful,” Jackson said in 2014. “I believe He will take me through this battle. In the process, God will gain a great victory and His name will be glorified.”
Jackson was internationally known for his prophetic gifting and dream interpretation. His The Streams Institute for Spiritual Developments has trained thousands to understand and use their revelatory gifts for the benefit of the Kingdom of God.
