What if I told you that an unseen world exists all around you? Filled with angels and demons, this invisible reality is a battlefield where an ongoing war wages for the heart of humanity.
With so much fascination focused on the supernatural in our culture, I felt led to dive deeper into this topic on Joni Table Talk this month. As believers, it’s critical we get a biblical perspective about spiritual beings and the role they play in heaven and on earth, which is why we’ll hear about it from two of my favorite guests.
October 24-26, the late John Paul Jackson and former Satanist, John Ramirez, will dispel many of the misconceptions about the supernatural world as they share powerful stories you don’t want to miss. From encounters with angels and demons to the seductive lure of witchcraft and the occult, they’ll separate fact from fiction to strengthen your faith!
Uncover the truth about the forces of darkness as you discover how to boldly engage in spiritual warfare and protect your family. My prayer is that you’ll tune in for these special Joni Table Talk programs and find answers and insight, empowering you to break free from demonic influences and live with divine purpose!
Josh in Brazil!
As a parent, it’s always a joy to see my children lift up the name of Jesus! That’s why I’m so proud of my son-in-love, Joshua Brown, who recently traveled to Brazil to speak at the Extreme Worship Conference in Rio de Janeiro.
Hosted by worship artists, Emerson Cruz and Fernanda Brum, this event was an incredible opportunity for Josh to share what the Holy Spirit has laid on his heart for this generation. He and Rachel were so honored to be a part of an experience created to inspire the world to pursue God with passion and purpose!
From how to become an “atmosphere changer,” to thriving while waiting on God’s promises, to walking in supernatural breakthrough – Josh spoke truth in love and lives were transformed for eternity!
When I think about God’s faithfulness in guiding our children and their spouses, I’m overwhelmed. Watching Him use their gifts and talents for His glory is an answer to prayer and an indescribable blessing! Having said that, I want to encourage you today.
If you have a child that’s not living for Christ, put your trust in the Lord. It’s hard to imagine, but He loves your kids more than you do and knows exactly how to capture their hearts.
Your son or daughter’s past, present, and future is secure in God’s hands. So freely surrender every fear and frustration, and receive His peace. In doing so, I believe you, too, will one day experience the joy of watching them lift up the name of Jesus!
Our baby girl is married! Rebecca is now officially “Mrs. Weiss” after a stunning
ceremony filled with Jewish traditions like blowing the shofar, a chuppah, and breaking
the glass. We feel so blessed to welcome Jonathan into our family and can’t wait to
share the wedding with you on Daystar in the coming weeks!
We’re so grateful for your prayers and support of Jonathan and Rebecca, and I hope you
enjoy seeing some of our favorite pictures of this beautiful couple!
Painting with Purpose
Over the years, I’ve come to think of motherhood as an opportunity to create a work of art. With each brushstroke, carefully guided by the Holy Spirit, I’ve made it my mission to paint the truth of God’s love on the canvas of my children’s hearts.
In Proverbs 22:6, it says, “Point your kids in the right direction—when they’re old they won’t be lost.” That’s a powerful promise for every parent!
The many movements of your brush may not be perfect, but they can always point to the One who is. Even our mistakes can provide teachable moments for our kids that success could never inspire. Don’t let past failures discourage you from speaking life over their destiny!
Today, my children are all adults and I have the blessing of a beautiful relationship with each one. They are uniquely gifted, and their love for the Lord brings joy to my heart as I see them pursuing Him with passion.
Through many seasons of life, I continued to paint with purpose. Not knowing how the end result would look, I trusted that if the Word of God remained my source, the picture would always reflect His grace, goodness, and mercy.
Looking at their lives now, I see it. The brushstrokes on each one tell a story of faith. They form an intricate map showing me where they’ve been and where they’re going. Not every path they’ve taken has led to peace, but I’m thankful to God that painting with His love and pointing them to Jesus means they’ll never be lost.
Remembering John Paul
There are rare moments in life where you meet someone and have an instant connection. I’ll never forget the first time I met my dear friend, John Paul Jackson. He just seemed to carry the presence of God with him. And he always had such wisdom to share.
It’s been a few years since John Paul was promoted to heaven, but many of his teachings and messages are truly timeless. So in 2017, we decided to revisit some of our favorite programs with him on Table Talk, and your response was tremendous. That’s why I’ve decided to bring back another series of John Paul Jackson programs this month.
The week of February 19th we’re bringing back five John Paul programs that were powerful and informative. So mark your calendars because you don’t want to miss him sharing about the hierarchy of angels and demons and what that should mean to us. Plus, he’ll teach us the importance of power and authority, how to recognize and overcome the Absalom Spirit, and what is sin.
It’s a week-long celebration of our beloved friend and the wisdom and anointing he carried. So make plans to join us at the table as we celebrate my dear friend, John Paul Jackson, this month on Joni Table Talk.
By now you may have heard the news that our youngest daughter, Rebecca, is engaged! This spring she’ll be marrying Jonathan Weiss, a young man we absolutely love and can’t wait to welcome into our family.
I hope you’ll look through the engagement pictures we’ve included below and share our joy in celebrating the happy couple. It was no easy task to keep this proposal a secret. Jonathan carefully planned all the details and waited for the perfect moment, choosing to surprise Rebecca at Marcus’ 60th birthday party!
We are so incredibly excited for this beautiful couple as they begin their journey together. Until then, Marcus and I hope you’ll join us in praying and believing for God’s best in their lives as the future unfolds!
