The harvest is here and prodigals returning to the Lord is a big part of it.
Be encouraged and share this with everyone you know...the prodigals are coming home! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
Lately, the Lord has been speaking to me about how ripe the harvest is. I believe that at least one-third of the Billion Soul Harvest, that Prophet Bob Jones and so many others have prophesied about, is made up of prodigals. What I mean by "prodigals" is they are those people who were once Bible Believers, raised in Christian homes, attending church and ministering to people. These prodigals are ones who once had a burning heart encounter and passion for Jesus, but have somehow become cold and lukewarm.
I believe these prodigals are being called out of the caves by the very voice of God. There is a great awakening happening and the Lord is causing hard and rocky hearts to turn and to return to Him. The Lord is calling them out!
"Don't you have a saying, 'It's still four months until harvest'? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest." (John 4:35)
The harvest is ripe and the sickle is sharp. The Lord is wanting to harvest souls now! Even as we've just celebrated Passover, which literally commemorates God's people passing through the River Jordan of judgment and crossing over from death to life, the Lord is prompting the prodigals to cross over today.
The Prodigals Are Coming Home!
Just about one month ago, I was told that my very own older brother who I have been praying for, went up on a two-day retreat with my father's Korean church group and while there, he rededicated his heart and life back to the Lord. Hallelujah! Growing up as a pastor's child, there were many complications and difficulties, but the arm of the Lord is not too short to save!
I believe that this is exactly what we are experiencing right now in the Body of Christ. The prodigals are returning to the Lord and are coming home to the Father. We are in a season of family miracles. We are in a great season of awakening. And a sign of this is that there will be a mass abundance of prodigals returning home. I declare it unto you, the prodigals are coming home!
One Lamb Per Family
According to Scripture, each family in Israel was responsible for slaughtering a lamb and partaking of it: "Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household" (Exodus 12:3).
I believe that the Lord is releasing holy communion within the family units! All of our families will experience the saving power of Jesus Christ. None will be exempt. (Photo via Unsplash)
"This promise is to you, to your children, and to those far away – all who have been called by the Lord our God." (Acts 2:39)
"They replied, 'Believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, along with everyone in your household.'" (Acts 16:31)
The Lord is causing a divine synergy and unity within our families' homes. There will be peace and rest in your family's home. The warfare will cease and there will be a distinct glory in your home!
The Spirit of Adoption
I believe the Church is meant to be the greatest adoption agency in the world, and we are about to see the greatest adoption of sons and daughters the world has ever seen.
The prodigals are returning not to a divided house, but to a united home. This will only be possible by the Spirit of God! The prodigals are returning not to a home of judgment, but to a home of mercy. The prodigals are returning not to a task-master but to a loving Father. The Lord is repairing and piecing together the broken places again.
The arms of the Father are wide open and He is running down the road, meeting His sons and daughters halfway. The Father is waiting and is about to celebrate with all of Heaven! It's time to get the fattened calf. It's time to get the robe, the ring and the sandals, for the lost ones are about to be found!
"....But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him." (Luke 15:20)
A Season of Recovery
It's time to recover and rescue your loved ones and lost ones. The Lord will bring all of them back. As David recovered everything, so will you. As David rescued his loved ones, so will you. Nothing shall be missing! You will bring back every single thing that the enemy has tried to steal from you.
"David recovered all that the Amalekites had taken, and David rescued his two wives. Nothing was missing, whether small or great, sons or daughters, spoil or anything that had been taken. David brought back all." (1 Samuel 30:18-19 ESV)
The Davidic heart of God is running into the enemy's camp to plunder what was stolen from him. The Davids will war with the heart of worship and they will see the recovery of the Lord. Your worship will recover what was lost and stolen. Worship your way into recovery, rescue and redemption!
The Lord is Sending You Help!
Even as the Lord caused a stubborn Peter to begrudgingly come to the home of Cornelius, the Lord is causing many to come to you and to your home. I prophesy that the Lord is causing many to visit your home and loved ones. Your loved ones will experience divine encounters and appointments. They will not be able to escape or run away from the radical pursuit of God. The Lord is sending people to you, to surround you and to see your loved ones saved!
"And he stared at him in terror and said, 'What is it, lord?' And he said to him, 'Your prayers and your alms have ascended as a memorial before God.'" (Acts 10:4)
The Lord has heard your prayers, He has seen your faithfulness. The Lord remembered the giving and prayers of Cornelius and the Lord remembers all that you've generously done for and before Him. He will remember and bless you in His due season of favor!
Your salvation and your miracle have been long overdue, but there shall be no more delay! Opposition and warfare are at many times present before your blessing's breakthrough, but now is the favorable time of the Lord. It's time to breakthrough (2 Corinthians 6:2)!
Road to Damascus Conversions
The hardest of hearts are coming to the Lord Jesus Christ, and nothing can stop it! Not only will they repent and be saved, but they will become powerful instruments of God's Kingdom here on Earth. (Photo via Unsplash)
"So Ananias went to the house, and when he arrived, he placed his hands on Saul. 'Brother Saul,' he said, 'the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here, has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.' At that instant, something like scales fell from Saul's eyes, and his sight was restored. He got up and was baptized..." (Acts 9:17-18)
Saul was an extreme persecutor and a murderer of the Christian people. The Lord caused the hard heart of Saul to be softened and opened up the blind eyes of this evil and religious man. The Lord is opening up the eyes of His people!
I declare over you that the scales and the blinders are falling. The scales and the chains are falling. The strongholds and the pride of man are falling!
There will be radical "Road to Damascus" encounters and conversions in these end times. We will not only see an influx of the most difficult and influential people come to the Lord, but they will become radical messengers of His "End Times" Gospel. These raw evangelists will preach the Gospel and see masses and scores of souls saved!
There will be true brothers and sisters, like Ananias, who will be ready in and out of season. These Ananiases will be ready to reach out to the Sauls of the world, instead of religiously putting them outside of the Church-fold. Great people of influence are coming to the Lord. Road to Damascus conversions are about to happen at a rapid pace!
There is no heart too hard or soul too difficult for the Lord to reach. Expect the Sauls to turn and transform into Apostle Pauls in this day and hour.
Declaration: Begin to agree with the Word of the Lord and decree and declare in this season: "....But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord" (Joshua 24:15). Expect family miracles to take place! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
