Whilst participating in a prayer meeting a few days ago, God reminded me that – to state the obvious – the celebrations for the Queens Platinum Jubilee are beginning: Platinum because she is celebrating 70 years on the throne, and significant because the number 70 in scripture is to do with fullness, release from captivity and the restoration of promise.
- Jeremiah 29:10 ‘for thus says the Lord: when 70 years are completed for Babylon, I will visit you, and I will fulfil to you my promise and bring you back to this place’
- Zechariah 1:12 ‘then the angel of the Lord answered and said, “O Lord of hosts, how long will You not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah against which You were angry these seventy years?’
- And Daniel 9:2 ‘ In the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of years specified by the word of the Lord……..that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.
(other scriptures – Isaiah 23:15)
This fulfilment of the promise to Israel was dependent on timing, and as Daniel recognised the prophetic opportunity, he turned to a new level and a new focus of prayer. ‘ Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting…..’
This Jubilee season is a time to celebrate the life of our queen, to pray for her, for her family and especially for the succession, but it is ALSO a time to recognise or remind ourselves of the great promises and call that lie upon this nation and to focus afresh upon them.
There have been many prophetic words over years concerning the significance of England and the British Isles, but some are time sensitive. There is now a window of opportunity to see a significant turn, not only for a harvest of salvations, but also in terms of the nation fulfilling its call – to model righteousness and justice to other nations, and to walk in blessing and be a blessing, but it is a window which we need to grasp for this opportunity will not stay open forever.
The church is always God’s key for a nation – but while we are individuals and we have individual calls upon our lives, our focus can no longer be on our own comfort or interests.
The Spirit of God is calling His people to rediscover their corporate call, and part of that is to recognise or remember the call upon this land.
The blessing for a nation concerns a turning back to Him, it is about righteousness and justice, and a fulfilment of its prophetic destiny but it also concerns how that nation is connected and aligned with others.
So this is a Jubilee time, a time to take hold of the grace flowing from Heaven for the fullness of restoration, recovery and fresh anointing, but again to set our faces regarding the call upon this land.
So in the Name of Jesus, we continue to declare:
Isaiah 62:1-4 NLT
“Because I love England (Bible: Zion) I will not keep still. Because my heart yearns for this Nation (Bible: Jerusalem) I cannot remain silent. I will not stop praying for her until her righteousness shines like the dawn, and her salvation blazes like a burning torch.”
We continue to declare, this is a nation marked out in Heaven for Divine Purpose, and for the Kingdom of God to come in all its fullness – that every demonic presence shifts or bows to the King of Kings and the Lord of Glory – where God’s Presence will dwell, transforming atmospheres, spheres and individual lives. We declare shift and change into the heart of our nation, that according to Your Word in 2 Corinthians 10:5 every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God will be brought down and that His name will again be exalted in this land.’ Psalm 34:3
The following are some more specific declarations – please use them as a reminder and to shape your own prayers – Every Blessing Suzanne
- We thank You for every prayer that’s been prayed regarding the freedom for the church in these days, bringing heart change, bringing mindset changes, and emotional wholeness – that a new ability to walk according to Your Spirit is released.
Across this nation, we declare “This is the Season of Revival,” and we declare His people will have a revelation of the shift of season which has taken place.
- Over the Royal family – we continue to ask that the legacy the Queen leaves of Her knowledge of You will be passed on to the generations to come – and we speak strength and wisdom to those with the Royal Family who already know You. As the future is planned and roles are given, we decree and declare every title, role, headship, place of authority, responsibility and position of influence will go to those of Your choosing.
- In this season when You are re-aligning nations, we agree over every alignment for this land, whether financial, political, security, military or trade – that which God would disconnect will be disconnected and that which He would connect would be connected.
