400 Years - Tracks Description
1. Babylon – Babylon echoes a cry of desperation for freedom and a yearning to return to the God of Salvation. The song captures the experiences of the people of God while they were in 70 years Babylonian captivity, as well as sets the stage for the next scene in history – The birth of the Deliverer of mankind from sin - Jesus Christ.
2. 400 Years – Up until the time of Malachi’s prophecy, Babylon had been the major world power. Nonetheless, the center of world power began to shift from the East to the West and Babylon was soon succeeded by the Medio-Persian. Hence, social uprisings, wars and the rise and fall of many kingdoms, were the order of the day during the 400 "silent years (the time in scripture after the last of the inspired prophets spoke and the first of the New Testament writers began to write)." The Nation of Israel had gone through times of pressure and had failed in their efforts to re-establish themselves, and had given up all hope. There was a growing air of expectancy that the only hope they had left was the coming at last of the promised Messiah. Ultimately, the need for a Deliverer who would not only ‘free’ the nations but would set up a new world order and rule and reign as King was imminent. Consequently, under Roman rule, the world experienced the miraculous birth of Jesus Christ. He is the Greatest Emancipator who lives to free mankind from sin’s oppression and break the silence that had long existed for 400 Years.
3. Forerunner - A profound and exciting testimony of deliverance from barrenness by Elizabeth, mother of John the Baptist, the forerunner of Jesus Christ.
4. Secret Things – When the light of God illuminates our heart, it is only then we are free to worship him. Mary, the Wiseman, and many others as recorded in scripture, had the secret of the promised Messiah hidden deep within their hearts. Thanks to God for the day when the star shone brightly in the eastern sky. It was a glorious day!
5. Gift of Life – “For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son Jesus..” Christmas time is a very special time of year that certainly reminds us of God’s love shown to humanity.
6. Adoration – ‘O Come Let Us Adore Him, Christ the Lord’. This song was inspired from the Gospel of Luke 2. The star that shone so bright and lit up the night sky still shines bright today into the hearts and lives of many. As we receive this light, we are in awe and adoration of the one who left His home above and came to earth to set the captives free.
7. Emmanuel – Scripture declares: “She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins". "All this happened to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet: 'Behold the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel, which being interpreted is God with us.'
8. Joy – This song delivers a message of redemption. Ultimately, with redemption, then comes joy. Be blessed!
9. Freedom – Freedom! Claim it! Listen carefully to the message of this song of freedom. This zouk style riddim really get your hands clapping and feet stomping.
10. Zion – The Shofar is used at the beginning of this song to announce the reign of King Jesus, as well as the establishment of a new world order. Jesus Christ, through His birth, death, and resurrection, has come to free the nations from the bondage of sin. He is the consolation of Israel and Joy of the Whole Earth. Does it alarm you that as the nation of Israel now returns from 70 years of Babylonian captivity to Zion, they did so with singing, dancing and praise to God Almighty?
11. Christmas Time – During the silent, dark ages and in a world where sorrows grew at an exponential rate because of sin, Jesus Christ, our Yeshua, Freedom's Son and the Light of the World, was born at Christmas.
For the countless broken hearts that have been captivated by God's gift of love and who now humbly worship Him, they can truly testify that, 'healing has come to the bruised.'.
Come! Let us sing and rejoice, with open hearts! Moreover, let us with all sincerity, like little children, declare His name and let the nations know that it is Christmas time everyday because of Jesus. It is the time for sharing, caring and for cheer.
12. Bitter Cup (Bonus Track) – This bonus song on the album takes us to the next phase in Jesus’ life and mission to free humanity from the bondage of sin. It covers the journey from Gethsemane to Calvary and reminds us of what it meant for Jesus Christ to drink the 'Bitter Cup' of suffering for humanity.

5. Destiny – A beautiful love song of worship and adoration to the Lord coupled with a melodious reggae riddim, sweeter than honey, this song was inspired by the Holy Spirit to my heart one morning after devotion. In the fullness of time, Christ came to earth as a babe but for a purpose. It is God's redemptive work through his Son Jesus Christ that is worth all our worship, love and praise that resonates with every beat of our heart. He was destined to come to earth to die for the sins of mankind and show us a better way to live. Simultaneously, we are destined to go back to God after we exit this earth.

Believers are also called and commissioned to use their gifts and talents to go and deliver souls.
9. Jehovah Shalom – Just when you ask yourself, does God really care about the situation that I am facing, how I can't sleep at night or even find a job in this economic instability?'

It echoes a message of one being “destined for greatness, beauty, and dignity.” We must pray and cry for them to heed this holy calling.
