A Prophetic Word for Japan: Prophet Charlie Shamp
The death of a leader in Asia will reshape a region and the mending of fault lines between nations will begin. The Lord spoke and said, “Behold the man Kim Yong-nam; his departure from the earth will mark a change in North Korean politics and policy with Japan and South Korea. I am shaking out the old to usher in the new. I will open up the heavens and talks will begin between these nations to heal the division and hurt from the past. Fault lines will vanish as intercessors stand in the gap. Even now I am paving the way to transformation and change. Answers will come to bring closure to the past abdications that took place in Japan and South Korea. Some will return alive and others will finally be laid to rest in their homelands.” I saw the Japanese red camellias bloom beautiful and bright and not one flower fell to the ground in that season, but were given to those that returned from captivity. Some were held in hands of returning prisoners, others were laid at graves of those that had passed while in captivity to bring closure to the pain. The flower at full bloom from that time forward will be marked as a symbol of healing for these nations and closure to the past pain. I heard the Lord say, “See! The winter snow still falls; but the tears are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth while the snow lays upon the ground; this season of singing comes to end the weeping of the those lost in the past. The cooing of doves is heard in your land, a stirring of the Spirit is about to begin to bring a generation to Christ from sin.”
Then I looked to see the word Dynasty resting over the nation of Japan and suddenly the word changed to Destiny. I heard the Lord say, “Watch as I reshape the Dynasty of this island to release the Prophetic Destiny of this nation. The passing of an Emperor will mark the moment of great transition for the nation. That moment will release momentum for transformation in the nation’s youth to turn from the past and embrace the future of Japan. I saw the news headlines that read, Emperor Akihito’s passing makers an end of a Japanese era.
I looked towards the mountains of Japan and saw a tragic event. I heard the Lord say, “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you Japan will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed, I will have compassion on you.” I could see a large mountain with snow on its peek shaking and then it erupted. I again heard the Lord say, “The mountains melt beneath and the valleys split apart, like wax before the fire, like water rushing down a slope. The people will lift up their eyes to the mountain that shakes and say, ‘Where does our help come from?’, but I say to you Japan your help comes from me, the maker of heaven and earth. Yes in the midst of a tragedy I will bring transformation, reformation and restoration. Your cities will be unto me as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego: you shall go through the fires, but in the end you will come out without the smell of smoke. I will not allow you to be fully destroyed or left in total ruin, but I will gather nations to you to bring restoration. I will send relief and blessing from nations abroad, even North Korea will help to heal your land. I will send missionaries from foreign lands to preach the cross and heal the broken and wounded. You will say, ‘How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Japan, Jesus Christ reigns! This will be a time that old religious structures fall and many will experience the freedom and reality of Jesus Christ. What many interceded for in the past will crash upon the shores and breakthrough the wall of resistance. A door to Japan’s destiny will open that will bring new Growth, Innovation, Technology, and Wealth. What the enemy meant to use to destroy, God will use to redeem and bless.
