Today May 1, 2019 marks the beginning of a new era in Japan as the 126th Emperor begins his reign. His ascendence to the throne is historic in many ways, but one above all is very important in the times we are living. The new Emperor, Naruhito, is a Christian. Yes, the Emperor, once considered the highest authority in Japan’s Shinto religion, and worshipped as a god by the Japanese people, now worships the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. In a country where the Christian population has maintained less than 1% of Believers for over a century and a half, a move of Adonai is making ripples in the nation that evangelists around the world have referred to as hard dry ground for the Gospel of Peace. Make no mistake however, the plans of the Almighty for Japan are beyond our wildest dreams and understanding. Isaiah 45:6 says, “So that all may know, from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting, that there is none but Me. I am the LORD, and there is no other.” Japan, known as the “Land of the Rising Sun” who’s flag bears the risen sun now has an Emperor who worships the risen Son, Yeshua. Our eyes will see and our ears will hear in these end times Japan called the “Land of the Risen Son” as the glory of God fills the nation to overflow.
The Lord has called Japan to be the Catalyst of a move of the Holy Spirit that will engulf and unify the countries of Northeast and Southeast Asia. As Emperor Naruhito takes the throne of Japan, it is officially the beginning of the so called Reiwa era in the country, which according to the Japanese government means “Harmony and Beauty”. According to this Biblical season, the declaration of a new era in Japan aligns perfectly with the clock of God. The current Biblical month of Nissan ushers in the new year 5779 according to the Word of God. It marks the beginning of a year of the justice of the Ancient of Days that will see an acceleration of things done in the darkness brought to light, and a subsequent alignment of the nations to His perfect plan in the short time before the return of the King of Glory.
Japan, once the warmongering imperial power in the region, despised still by many after over 70 years of peace, with the smallest percentage of Believers in Northeast Asia will be used by Elohim to unite the Body of Christ in China, Korea, and Japan. If it seems impossible to you, ask the Father how impossible it seems to Him. Having had the joy to worship with our brothers and sisters in Japan, we can tell you first hand that they worship as the Bride of Yeshua, pure and set apart for the Lord, embraced by His presence in a double portion. The Remnant of the nation are more united than ever before. Gatherings to worship the Great I Am with no motive other than to praise Him and give Him all glory is leading to the replacement of man’s plans with the plans of the Eternal. The Bride of Christ in Japan is coming into agreement with the heart of the Father, and as the Emperor worships the King of kings, it marks the beginning of an unprecedented time in a nation with the oldest Monarchy in the world. Join us in welcoming the Lord of Hosts, the Lion of the tribe of Judah to come roaring in power to Japan so that all will know that He is the Lord, and there is no other. Abba! We welcome your wave of glory to wash over Japan, to heal the land, awaken the sleepers, and unite the region in the name of Yeshua Ha’Mashiach.
