Zimbabwe went to the polls en masse on Monday July 30th in the first general election since it’s President of 37 years, Robert Mugabe was deposed. This election represents an opportunity for the country to break from its repressive past and step into the bright future that has been prophesied over the nation.
Voter turn out has been high as incumbent President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his main rival, Nelson Chamisa wait to see who will be the country’s next President. Whoever it may be, Zimbabwe has been set on a new course following Mugabe’s ousting and there is hope that the country will see a great turnaround as leading prophetic voices have prophesied. One of these is Cindy Jacobs of Generals International, who has a series on GOD TV entitled ‘God Knows’.
Zimbabwe will be like a jewel
In 1998 Cindy prophesied that God would use Zimbabwe like a jewel, bringing reconciliation between black and white and that the country would once again feed the world. “Zimbabwe has the ministry of reconciliation that will reunite the African people,” she said. “The anointing of reconciliation will be all over Zimbabwe. ‘Although it looks like you are going backwards,’ the Lord says, ‘I have a plan for you. Satan thinks he is advancing but I will expose wickedness at high levels. Do not be afraid.’
“Satan will try to bring war, but the people will stop war and bloodshed… Zimbabwe will bring healing to the nations. It will come through trickery, and God will restore it,” Cindy said.
Zimbabwe – a nation restored
This was an extraordinary prophecy yet the situation got worse. Then, in October 2001 Cindy gave another word of encouragement. “The Lord has a word for Zimbabwe,” she said. “Weeping only endures for a night but joy comes in the morning,” she said quoting Psalm 30:5. And the Lord says, ‘I am going to raise up an Army of Intercessors that will go in deep like the palm tree in times of drought. This Army of Intercessors will cling to the word of the Lord, so therefore I will use them to heal Africa,’ says God.
” ‘And I am going to release a mighty prayer army that will go forth from this land.’ And the Lord says, ‘I am going to stay this spirit of violence and I am going to begin to reverse things in this land. Don’t look at what you see now, but understand that I am going to make this a peace-making nation.’
“Finally, the Lord says, ‘I the Prince of Peace am going to enthrone myself in miraculous ways there,’ says God. ‘This country will be peaceful. Restoration will come’.” Cindy concluded by sharing how God had given her scriptures from the book of Joel for Zimbabwe. “God is going to restore the years the locust has eaten,” she said prophesying that the country would become ‘a Joel nation’.
GOD TV – making a difference in Zimbabwe
Over the past 16 years, GOD TV has been available free to air via satellite in Zimbabwe with many people regarding the network as a lifeline. Viewers have been able to receive encouragement from God in the face of enormous trials, even farmers living in remote areas trusting God for justice, righteousness and peace to prevail. It is no wonder then, that Cindy prophesied in 2004 how GOD TV would make an impact in the country.
“I see Africa opening up to you, especially Zimbabwe. I cannot tell you the urgency there is for believers in Zimbabwe right now. Of all the nations of Africa, Zimbabwe must have your teaching right now.”
GOD TV Africa and the team in Cape Town remain as committed as ever to help Zimbabwe achieve its God-given destiny. Let’s continue to pray for the nation’s leaders and for the people of Zimbabwe. Through inspirational programming, GOD TV will continue to encourage the people of Zimbabwe to believe God for great breakthrough and reach further in Him as they rebuild their country.
