Vision - The Sleeping Samurai

The other day I was in prayer for Japan.  Especially in prayer for the Japanese men, who are suffering from depression and alcoholism in high number all around Japan. As I was in the Spirit suddenly the LORD showed me a vision.

I saw what was very clearly a Japanese Samurai warrior and he had short hair. He was covered in battle scars and looked very haggard. He had with him three swords. They all had names written on the sheath. One was truth-Shin真 , then there was desire-Nozomi 希 and the strongest was love, a sword of fire - Ai 愛. The samurai was sitting at a red gate and there was a jar of empty sake at his feet. You could tell it was empty because it was tipped over. I could see his heart was a very small flame that beat within his chest.  Suddenly a bell rung and he opened one eye and looked around then went back to sleep.  This happened again and he again returned back to sleep. He sat up after the bell rung again for the third time. He got up and started to stretch himself. He took out his swords and examined them. Truth was not sharp enough to cut anything. Desire was broken and was just a shard of a blade. Love was a dim flame that glowed red. He started to curse himself and said out loud, "Shimatta!" What I am supposed to do now?" He then began to weep bitterly.  His tears made a puddle and as he was looking at the puddle it began to turn red. He looked up and saw Jesus on the cross and the blood was flowing down and washing away the puddle of tears and formed a puddle of blood in its place. Jesus said, "I have not forsaken you. Your legacy shall be Mine. Your honor shall be mine. Drink and have life."

The samurai then took his hand and took the blood and drank it Jesus said, " My heart shall be in you." Now Jesus was no longer on the cross.  He was dressed in white and surrounded with glory.  He touched the samurai on the chest.  Suddenly a fire burned away the samurai even to the bone. He was just a skeleton and Jesus then breathed on him and he was restored and his eyes had turned green.  The samurai had green eyes and something like armor on his skin.  His heart was a great flame and he bowed before Jesus and laid out his swords.  The LORD sharpened the sword of truth with a simple touch of his finger. He forged a new blade for desire upon an anvil.  The sword of love he dipped in a great flame at the foot of His throne. Jesus then said, " Look I have sent you to the nations, mighty and strong warrior after my own heart. Great is My love for you and great is the love you will have for the nations. You will defend them and shall fulfill your days in My service. I remember your sins no more.  

With this the samurai set out on a long journey vowed before the LORD that he shall fulfill His Word and duty.
