I saw a worried mother walking with her children. They were searching for her prodigal son/ daughter. She was so worried about this child and thought that he was hopelessly lost.
I saw the Lord’s hand and in it, were gold rings. T he Lord says to you worried parents and grandparents, “Daughter/ Son, do not fear. Your son, your daughter is coming home. It is the year of restoration.
I AM bringing your sons from afar and your daughters from the ends of the earth. I will place the golden rings on their fingers Myself. O afflicted one, storm-tossed and not comforted. Behold, your faith and your prayers have not been in vain.
Lift up your eyes and look around; all of your children shall gather and come to you. Your sons will come from afar, and your daughters will be carried in the arms. Then you will see and be radiant, and your heart will thrill and rejoice.
As surely as I live,” declares the LORD, “you will wear them all as ornaments; you will put them on, like a Bride.”
“And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ But the father said to his servants, ‘Quickly bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet; and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found,” Luke 15:21-24.
“Lift up your eyes round about and see; They all gather together, they come to you. Your sons will come from afar, and your daughters will be carried in the arms. Then you will see and be radiant, And your heart will thrill and rejoice,” Isaiah 60:4-5.
“Do not fear, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and gather you from the west. “I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ And to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring My sons from afar and My daughters from the ends of the earth,” Isaiah 43:5-6.
“O afflicted one, storm-tossed and not comforted, behold, I will set your stones in antimony,and lay your foundations with sapphires. I will make your pinnacles of agate, your gates of carbuncles,and all your wall of precious stones. All your children shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children. In righteousness you shall be established;you shall be far from oppression, for you shall not fear;and from terror, for it shall not come near you,” Isaiah 54:11-14.
