“Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever.” ~Daniel 12:3
The restoration of refuge in the season of redemption of the latter years will become greater and more blessed than the former years when His People truly return to The Father in their hearts and He is revealed to them through His Son. In this turning and returning will be their salvation as they pray the prayers of a penitent and contrite heart as King David prayed in Psalm 90:7-17….
“For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.
Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.
The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
Who knoweth the power of thine anger? Even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.
O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.
Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children.
And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.”
Then only will they be able to hear what The Spirit of The Lord is speaking and and be willing to be sent wherever He commands them.
“Yet setteth the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock.” ~Psalm 107:41
But first they must be willing to be refined like silver and gold in the fires of affliction and suffering. To share suffering of The Lord and to share His love for the lost they must be purified in holiness. A rendering of the vessels to be of honour must take place within them.
“Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.” ~Isaiah 48:10
“In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.” ~Isaiah 63:9
Then the Judeans of the Northern Kingdom and the House of Jacob and The House of David will return to the Lord when they see His ministers working miracles, signs and wonders in the earth. And they shall surely say as it is spoken in this passage of Scripture,
“O LORD, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.” ~Jeremiah 16:19
For they will surely know that they have been lied to concerning the true identity and nature of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. He shall be revealed as their one true Messiah when their minds are no longer blinded by the lies of their priesthood when they consider the words of Zechariah 12:10…
“And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.”
“And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.”
Then those who are saved from to not love the lie but love the truth shall be purified. Some being the 144,000 who will then be sent throughout the world to preach the gospel of the Kingdom. This will be the end time harvest as in the words…
“I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.” ~Micah 2:12

“Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.” ~Micah 5:3
Then we shall see a new thing in the earth. The Lord will favor Israel and her people after they have been severely chastened for their idolatry and surrounded on all sides by the nations who come to make spoil of them. Then through the travail of becoming established as a nation on all their borders we will see The Lord defend His People when they call upon Him with true contrite hearts.

And the Lord shall repossess His People and they shall possess their inheritance as He has promised in His word….
“Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If it be marvellous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvellous in mine eyes? saith the LORD of hosts.” ~ Zechariah 8:12″For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause theremnant of this people to possess all these things.” ~Zechariah 8:12
