Vision- The 10 yen coins

During a prayer time with a dear brother in the LORD, Nicholas I saw a vision as we prayed into the new year of 2020, and even more exciting, a new decade for the Kingdom of God. I saw a vision before me of a Japanese 10 yen coin. The coin was lying flat but suddenly stood up and after that another coin also standing up joined itself to it and another and another and soon I saw what was a long line of coins all standing in line as far as the eye could see. And it sort of looked like a railroad track and then I saw a glorious looking train come down and ride on the coins which had become the rail for it. Even as the vision played before me I began to understand what it meant as the SPIRIT revealed the layers of meaning and significance in what I saw and how it applies to JAPAN and also the movement of the KINGDOM of GOD that is coming forth.

First of all the 10 yen coin is a number referring to a decade, a time of "ten" which we are entering into with the year 2020. Also this coin out all the other coins in Japan is probably the most unassuming in appearance, typically unless in mint condition it is not shiny like the 100 yen coin, 500 yen coin, etc. The Kingdom of God will be carried by unassuming, regular people. It also has an image of "evergreen" leaves under the 10 tied together with a bow. The everlasting life in Christ tied with the bond of perfection which is love, for it is written:

 "But above all these put on love which is the bond of perfection." Colossians 3:14 

In addition to this, the coin is made of copper which brings this Scripture to mind which is from Matthew 10 of all numbers!

 "Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them fails to the ground apart from your Father's will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore, you are of more value than many sparrow." Matthew 10:29-31

The fact that the 10 yen coin stood up reminded me of the verse that each believer ought to stand firm in the faith and then as each believer comes together in alignment, true oneness in the truth shall come forth as it written:

 "Be on the alert. Stand firm in the faith. Be men of courage. Be strong." 1 Corinthians 16:13.

Also it is written

"Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness," Ephesians 6:14 

The SPIRIT brought to my attention that 10 yen as an amount of money by itself is not a lot of resources, but even as the line of coins became a countless number of which I could not even calculate its value so it is with the people of God.  When they all come together in alignment, as one,  unlimited resources are shared through their connection, and that is the rail that the Kingdom of God rides upon, the train of glory comes as each one stands firm in the truth and in faith together with one another.

So as I shared this vision with brother Nicholas we truly began to be stirred in our spirits as to what God is going to do in Japan and in the nations. I am encouraged to share this WORD especially in a time of great uncertainty and fear for many.

God is sovereign over all these things that we are facing.  We are to arise in our faith and come together as ONE in this new decade and believe His Word for what it says, for His Spirit will guide us into the truth, all truth as He said. Blessings to saints everywhere from JAPAN!

Vision - Seven Stones and the Water Gate

This vision I received at the end of 2016 (nearly three years ago) and recently the LORD has impressed it upon me to share it written here. Because I believe THE TIME HAS COME,

This vision I received at the end of 2016 and recently the LORD has impressed it upon me to share it written here. Because I believe THE TIME HAS COME,

In the Spirit the Lord showed a vision he showed me a spring on top of a mountain. Many people in the villages below could see the spring and they knew it was very important and that it was the spring that gave them water they needed to live off of.  Yet the towns were dry and they sent teams up to the spring to fetch water. The teams went up to the mountain and brought the water back down but it was never enough.  And the people suffered because of lack of water.  Then the LORD showed me a gate with seven holes around it.  The gate was set next to the spring and the water was dammed by it.  Then the LORD said, "This is the water gate and it is shut and the people do not know how to open it."  Then the LORD gave me seven stones. They were plain upon first appearance but when held to the light they shone with many colors.  He said those with pure hearts can hold the stones. The LORD then instructed me to take the stones to the towns below.  He said to tell the people to stop trying to get the water by those who are strong and know the way, instead of that the people should take the stones to the water gate at the spring and put them in the holes at the same time. He continued saying, "Warn the people of the towns.  Tell them to be pure of heart that they should come before the LORD in humility, and then they should set the stones in the holes at the water gate." He said, "Take the seven stones which I have given you and take this message to the towns below."

As I went to the towns and gave them the message.  The people would say, "We are fine. We don't need your help.  We can survive on our own.  We are fine we have done it this way for many years.  This is the way we do things."  But I urged them to try it and said to them,"This is not only for you but to be a blessing to your future generations."  Out of all the people in the towns that I spoke to only four leaders came forth to take the stones in humility before the LORD. The remaining three I took back with me to the LORD.  He said to me, "You have done well. The people are not ready.  They still believe in their own strength and wisdom, but a time is coming, a time when the heat shall burn hot and at that time all seven stones will be put in the holes at the water gate and the water from the spring shall flow down to the people, and at that time all the people in the towns shall be blessed. And they shall see their towns filled with living water.  Then I said to the LORD, "Why must we wait?"  The LORD replied, "These people have seen trouble and they will not let go.  They believe in themselves and their hearts are still not pure enough to see this gate open.  This is because of the enemy who has shown them the wisdom they believe to be right.  Yet for all their wisdom they suffer and are foolish but God knows their hearts. And still His love is great for them.  Do not lose heart it will only be a few seasons and all the stones will be carried to the gate and the gate will shall be opened and water from the mountain of God shall pour out on the land.  As I heard these words I look at the LORD and said "AMEN" and the vision ended.

Japan to the Nations - Taiwan Mission Trip

The area around Taipei Station in Taiwan. We spent several hours there ministering to many homeless and hurting.

From February a team from Japan and I set out for Taiwan to minister and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. There were many testimonies and I have put a few videos although the audio are mostly Japanese. We spent roughly five days in Taiwan and encountered many people and saw some healed even one come to Christ.  We were limited in our language and did at times have an interpreter with us.  It was a great opportunity for growth and discipleship, taking the native Japanese believers out of their environment and learning to trust God and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. Through our various encounters we were able to sow seeds and testify to Jesus.  Sometimes in opposition even as one man was very angry we were telling people about the LOVE of JESUS. Yet others received our message and even received healing in their bodies. 

This lady who is on the streets shared with us that she had pain in her hand and has been unable to close it into a fist for a very long time.  At first we prayed and there wasn't any improvement then I asked her if she was a believer in Jesus and she said yes.  At this point I felt God wanted it to be her that speaks out her healing. I had her repeat and renounce her issue and a few seconds later we tried again and the pain left and her hand completely came together. She was amazed and began to glorify God and others began to wonder what was happening. This led to the testimony being shared with other homeless who were sitting around.

English video praying for our taxi driver a native tribal Taiwanese who needed healing in her hand. After she was healed she got so excited she told her mother who waited for us to come down the mountain so we could pray for her hurt knees. She was also healed, praise God and others in the community witnessed it and the news spread to hundreds of people as a result!

This video is in Japanese explaining how this woman was healed of knee pain. The mother of our taxi driver.  One healing led to the next and to the next and so on.

Hisako helped arrange the travel and accommodations for our trip, she also helped with translation and ministered as well. We spent some time recapping in Japanese some of the testimonies and things we learned from this trip on FaceBook LIVE. This video is in Japanese.

There are many more testimonies I could share and it truly was a honor to represent Jesus and also be a part of this new move of God, a move that is coming out of Japan to the nations of the earth! To God be all the glory!
