New International Version
The Year of Jubilee
8 ‘“Count seven sabbath years – seven times seven years – so that the seven sabbath years amount to a period of forty-nine years. 9 Then sound the trumpet everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement sound the trumpet throughout your land. 10 Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you; each of you is to return to your family property and to your own clan. 11 The fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you; do not sow and do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the untended vines. 12 For it is a jubilee and is to be holy for you; eat only what is taken directly from the fields.
Kenya’s 50 year Jubilee starts now and the Kenya House of Prayer reminds us that we should bring out our shofar, blow them and celebrate until end of day Saturday 14th September. Kenya is turning a corner into God’s prosperity and abundance. Join me in prayer for this great nation and her people!
You may ask, what? with all that is going on in Kenya?! Truth be told, God’s time-lines and is judgement are His alone. He is not governed by the news, opinions or viewpoints – fortunately. Anything that happens anywhere on God’s green earth starts in the spirit realm and manifests in the physical. So things are not what they seem. Arise beloved of God and walk into your long-awaited freedom!
Celebrate and commemorate this nation and her people in prayer. Praise, worship and dance to the Lord as never before! This is a time of restoration, healing, recovery, rest, new beginnings, reconciliation and harvest that none witnessed before. Like David, I will hitch up my skirts until the dance ends with those who love the Lord. He deserves our worship and thanksgiving. I pray this is only the beginning.
Happy Jubilee! Kenya is now switched on!
Father God, I thank you for raising up your nation and delivering us from all shackles and bondage. We commit ourselves to you, afresh, humbly asking for your forgiveness for all our sin. Cleanse us as only you can. Allow us to approach your throne in reverence, in readiness for this celebration. We lift up your name on high and honour you with every word we can muster. May your name be praised throughout this land forever! Amen.
