THE RETURN OF THE PRODIGALS

By Tiffany Bretana 



On February 27, 2017, I heard RETURNED PRODIGAL & EXPECT SUDDEN TURNAROUNDS. 

I saw a sewer from the underground perspective. You could see the light through the sewer grate. The prodigals are tired of being in the dark, wet, damp, dirty, and cramped quarters they have found themselves in. They want to come out into the light, and smell the fresh air.  

On February 16, 2017, I heard the fields are ripe with harvest! Will you be found like the Father awaiting the prodigal’s return??? 

There is a religious spirit out there that would say that the prodigals would have to clean up before they come home but the Father shows in the parable the willingness to embrace the prodigal son while he is yet filthy from having been in the pig’s pen.  

When the Lord speaks something to me personally, I await for confirmations. A few days later, I was on a prophetic prayer call when it was confirmed by my close friends, sisters, and prophets friend Maili and Rebecca on March 2, 2017. 

Jennifer LeClaire said in her book, WAGING PROPHETIC WARFARE: Effective Prayer Strategies to Defeat the Enemy, “The Lord told me that these prayer calls—these calls in which we pray out the many prophecies that have been declared over our state in the decades past—are an arrow in our quiver. ………. In other words the prayer call is a new weapon for the season in which we find ourselves. This arrow in the quiver is a prophetic strategy that can be used to hit our prayer target.” (p. 112).

 Maili saw my prodigal, but it was a corporate sense for the prodigals out there, wallowing in the mud. They were tired and filthy. They knew at the Father’s house there was plenty for even the hired servants. The prodigals are starving, spiritually and physically. They were willing to eat the pods for the pigs, which speaks of they were willing to eat anything that the world dishes them. She confirmed what I heard from the Lord and somethings the Lord had spoken to me over time through the parable of the prodigal, Luke 15:11-24.  

1. The Lord has always impressed on me the Father was in a stance of expectation for the prodigal son’s return.  

Luke 15:20 So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him. 

2. The Father did not condemn or did not have a laundry list of expectations of how the son had to change before receiving his son. The Father embraced the son before his confession. 

Luke 15:20 “So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him. 

-Separation for emphasis-

Luke 15:21 His son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against both heaven and you, and I am no longer worthy of being called your son.’ 

3. The Father is so glad he throws a party and dresses the son in the finest. 

Luke 15:22-24 “But his father said to the servants, ‘Quick! Bring the finest robe in the house and put it on him. Get a ring for his finger and sandals for his feet. And kill the calf we have been fattening. We must celebrate with a feast, for this son of mine was dead and has now returned to life. He was lost, but now he is found.’ So the party began. 

The Father restores the son stature and reputation. The robe speaks of righteousness, the ring speaks of authority, and the sandals speak of peace. The celebration speaks of the Father’s heart rejoices just as it is written in Luke 15:7, 10 In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away! In the same way, there is joy in the presence of God’s angels when even one sinner repents.” 

Many of you may be asking how can this be? 

In a previous vision I received on February 27, 2017, the Lord showed me tightly packed ground, the ground was being shaken, where it was tightly packed (hardness of hearts) was being broken up where I saw little dirt particles rattling on the ground where it was tightly packed before, from being shaken. I was then reminded of scriptures I had prayed for my prodigal:

The NLT used to say: Ezekiel 36:25-27 – “Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean. Your filth will be washed away, and you will no longer worship idols. And I will give you a new heart with new and right desires, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony heart of sin and give you a new, obedient heart. And I will put my Spirit in you so you will obey my laws and do whatever I command.”

Ezekiel 36:25-38 Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your uncleanness and from all your idols. Moreover, I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you, and I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put my Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My ordinances and do them. You will live in the land that I gave to your fathers; and you will be My people, and I will be your God. I will also save you from all your uncleanness, and I will call for the grain and make it abundant, and I will not bring famine on you. I will multiply the fruit of the tree and the produce of the field, so that you will not suffer again the disgrace of famine among the nations. Then you will remember clearly your own evil ways and your deeds that were not good, and you will loathe yourselves in your own sight for your sins and for your outrageous atrocities. I am not doing this for your sake,” says the Lord God. “Let that be known to you. Be ashamed and humiliated for your wicked ways, O house of Israel!” ‘Thus says the Lord God, “On the day that I cleanse you from all your sins I will also cause the cities of Israel to be inhabited, and the ruins will be rebuilt. The desolate land will be cultivated instead of being a desolation in the sight of everyone who passes by. Then they will say, ‘This land that was deserted and desolate has become like the garden of Eden; and the waste, desolate, and ruined cities are fortified and inhabited.’ Then the nations that are left around you will know that I the Lord have rebuilt the ruined places and planted that which was desolate. I the Lord have spoken, and will do it.” ‘Thus says the Lord God, “This too I will let the house of Israel ask Me to do for them: I will increase their people like a flock. Like the flock for sacrifices, like the flock at Jerusalem during her appointed feasts, so will the desolate cities be filled with flocks of people. Then they will know with confident assurance that I am the Lord.”’”
