In a recent dream I had I found myself standing on one of the oldest pieces of property in the US, on the coast in the northeast part of the states. In the dream, John Paul Jackson (the late minister who was a powerful endtime prophet) is standing there delivering a message to the nation. He’s talking about immorality. He’s talking about each nation/world power before us (the United States) all fell due to crossing a line in rampant immorality. As he continues to talk, he describes how although our nation has matched some of the sins of previous world powers, our nation has exceeded their immorality in this respect: fathers committing sexual sin with their daughters. He said that even previous world powers never crossed this line as a whole, but America has.

Next, I’m standing there alone. John Paul Jackson is gone, and I’m beginning to become frozen & paralyzed. There’s some kind of invisible force which is suspending me, paralyzing me... I’m fighting to wake up, but I can’t. I hear outside the dream world my family gathering around the bed while the doctor describes a unique kind of coma or catatonic state that I’ve fallen into. I’m afraid. Then I wake up.

So it’s interesting, I actually learned about dream interpretation and these kinds of dreams from John Paul Jackson originally, back in the years 2004/2005 when I was first being introduced to the prophetic movement as a teenager. I remember going to John Paul’s website back then and listening to hours of his messages where He talked about the prophetic ministry and dream interpretation. I’m forever grateful for the invaluable contribution He made into my life as a young man who was establishing a relationship with the Lord as a teenager.


John Paul standing on ground which Puritans landed on, established colonies on which became the foundation for this great nation, is a call for “pure prophets” to arise in this hour. It’s no coincidence to me that a group of people that had a call to holiness and purity, calling themselves “puritans” paved the way for the colonies in their day. The prophetic call is a forerunner call, and often people who carry holiness mantles/anointings go before others when God is about to do something great. Yes we’ve drifted from our foundation as a nation, but look how hard it’s been for the enemy to wrest us from that original trek. It’s taken him many generations, countless hours, billions of dollars, and co opting whole industries to bring forth the level of propaganda and cultural idolatry necessary to really lead the nation astray. In times of Israel’s straying God would always raise up prophets who would hold the line and refuse to go with the culture as they went after other gods, mingled with the practices of other nations (the world), and profaned the worship of Jehovah. This is what I see in John Paul Jackson standing there preaching this powerful message of morality on puritan ground in my dream. It’s a call to come back to God, to come back to the foundations and restore this nation. But this message to return is not a part from the call to repentance and purity. If the nation is to be saved, if the nation is to return to God, then we must repent, recognize the err in our ways as a people, and see the wisdom once again in holiness unto the Lord. I fear that things are going to have to get much worse before the nation gets this message. But no matter how far we have to slide deeper into our sin and immorality there will be no turning without the 11th hour prophets like John Paul Jackson arising and taking their stand while proclaiming this message. Where are the pure prophets who will call the nation back to the Lord with repentance & power?


Now, having done the research since I’ve had the dream, I cannot say that John Paul in my dream was speaking about where we are now currently as a nation. I believe this to be a clear warning for where we are heading if we do not repent and turn from the present immoral trajectory we’re on. In most states incest is still illegal at the time of this writing. Some might say, “Stephen, that will never happen… it’s just inconceivable”. But I say it’s already happening with the other sins and abominations that we’ve legalized and even celebrated as love, beauty, and courage. Putting a teenager through re-gendering surgery, castrating a little boy who wants to be a girl, is not currently thought of to be child abuse but beauty & courage in many places in the western world. Children can be murdered when born alive now under current infanticide laws. The Supreme Court in 2020 ruled that abominable sexual sins were to be protected by “civil rights laws”. So abominable sin has the same protections as minorities and women in the workplace, and is classified in the same way, as a civil rights issue. This is how far we have fallen already, where this nation doesn’t think twice about murdering children born alive and making homosexual sin into a civil rights issue. There’s already a movement among the perverse to classify pedophilia as a sexual oritentation. We know, based on evidence and eye witness testimony that has come to light during the “Trump era of exposure” that the elite and powerful consider child pedophilia and human trafficking a delacacy for the rich and powerful. It really is sick but it’s true unfortunately. There is an evil faction of people in this country and throughout the world that is intent on completely shattering what used to constitute moral conscience in a society springing from Judeo-Christian values and biblical morality. If the prophets don’t arise now and quit playing their hyper-grace games, how long does a nation on this path have? How long will the slide over this moral cliff take? Years? Months? Days? The condition that John Paul was describing could be much closer than we realize.


After John Paul Jackson disappeared in my dream, I found myself coming under a terrible paralyzation of sorts and I came to my senses and realized I was in a dream inside this dream that I was having. I fought to get free, to move, to awaken out of it, but nothing worked. Then I became even more frightened as I could hear my family members gathering around my body outside the dream world as the doctor described my terrible condition. I believe this to represent the state that we’re in currently as a nation or are going to be in very soon. In this state we’re no longer just asleep spiritually, but we’re catotonic, we’re in a coma spiritually and we don’t even know it.

This paralysis came on me the moment John Paul Jackson disappeared, and I believe another level to this nation’s spiritual slumber/paralysis comes when the prophets that proclaim the message of repentance can no longer be found. Without the gospel being preached with power, purity, holiness, and a call to repentance, there can be no true awakening. People talk about awakening in terms of culture, in terms of Donald Trump and MAGA, but I’m telling you saints, it will not be enough. Even if all our dreams are realized, and the election is overturned, and Trump wins a second term and keeps all his promises, it will not be enough to divert what’s coming if we do not repent and turn from our wicked ways as a people. Heed these words saints and prayerfully consider what I’m saying here today. Where are the John Paul Jackson prophets? Where are the Finneys and Wesleys that our nation so desperately needs for true spiritual and moral awakening?


21 “I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran. I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.

22 But if they had stood in My counsel, and had caused My people to hear My words, then they would have turned them from their evil way and from the evil of their doings.”

(Amos 9:8)

“Behold, the eyes of the Lord God are on the sinful kingdom, and I will destroy it from the face of the earth; yet I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob,” says the Lord.”


“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.”

True prophets who have stood in the counsel of God Almighty always manifest the fruit of turning a people from their evil way. A prophet or prophetically called person will bear the weight of intimate understanding as it pertains to the consequences of a sinful kingdom, a sinful nation, turning from the Lord. The fires of that nation’s imminent destruction will burn hot on the prophet’s face. The pain and suffering that’s to come will be borne in the prophet’s very soul. He/She will have fellowship with that suffering in a supernatural way which will fuel their message all the more. They will be intimately in touch with the righteousness which is able to exalt a nation, and they will grasp the horror of the cultural sin which has come as a reproach against a people. Let the prophets arise in this hour and begin to proclaim the gospel again from the ground of the puritans!
