About Dr. Jones
Dr. Stephen E. Jones was born in Marion, Indiana January 29, 1950. At the age of three, his parents went as missionaries to the Philippine Islands under the Christian and Missionary Alliance, and they spent a total of nine years in that far-off land. Upon returning to America, they lived in Minnesota, where Stephen finished high school and then went to St. Paul Bible College and the University of Minnesota, majoring in Philosophy and Humanities. He later received his masters degree and doctorate from the Minnesota Graduate School of Theology.

He met his wife-to-be, Darla, while attending St. Paul Bible College, and they were married in 1971. She, too, was from a minister's family, as her parents were in the ministry under the Christian and Missionary Alliance. They have six children, and as of the year 2019 they have seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
From 1975-1981 he worked as an assistant pastor for a small independent church in Phoenix, Arizona and then helped establish a church in New Mexico for a short time. However, God intervened in 1982, changed his life, took him out of pastoral ministry, and the Spirit led him into the "wilderness" for a ten-year time of training in the principles of intercession, spiritual warfare, and the revelation of the divine law. In late 1990, God called him out of secular work and back into the ministry full time.
Dr. Jones' most important writings came after God brought him back into the full-time ministry. It is here that all his earlier years of searching the Scriptures began to come into clearer focus. He combines a knowledge of the Old and New Testaments with a personal revelation of God that began and developed during the "wilderness" period of his life, which he often refers to as God's True Bible College.
In addition to writing topical books and commentaries on various books of the Bible, he was led to conduct numerous prayer campaigns and engage in spiritual warfare, especially from 1993-2001.
The revelation of timing was helpful at every step of the way, especially the revelation that the "seven times" contract to rule the earth, given to the beast empires (Daniel 7), expired in October 2017. The transfer of authority to the Saints of the Most High was then declared in the divine court, and the power of these beast empires began to crumble.
Christian believers will have a greater anointing in the next Age to extend the Kingdom of God into all the earth. Those who think they will be removed to heaven and will sit on a cloud unemployed for eternity are sadly mistaken. The Kingdom of God will grow from a stone to a mountain range and will fill the whole earth (Dan. 2:35). This will not happen by itself, but through the witness and teaching by Christians who know God and who have the anointing to bring world history to its historic climax--the seventh millennium, the great Sabbath of history. It is Dr. Jones' purpose to shed light on God's purposes for the earth, and the Christian's role and calling in the years to come.
