The history of Japan is quite long compared to the USA and many western nations. During that long history Christianity has only been introduced, into Japan, a few times for relatively short periods of time. In other words there have been seasons when Christianity was able to grow and prosper, and even longer seasons when it was stopped or dampened completely. I have studied the history. I do not know why, from God’s perspective, Japan has not opened up to the love of the Father, the redemption of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit. But we continue to hope and work toward a new season of openness and Kingdom advance.
