Jeremiah 3:25

There is different message for different time.

In Genesis 18:22-33, Abraham tried to convince God not to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah if as many as ten righteous people could be found.
In Jeremiah 5:1, God offers to forgive Jerusalem if a single honest person can be found.

While I am reading Jeremiah 3:25, I thought I saw Japan.

"Return, faithless people; I will cure you of your backsliding."

"Yes, we will come to you
for you are the LORD our God.

Surely the idolatrous commotion on the hills and mountains is a deception
surely in the LORD our God is the salvation of Japan.

From our youth shameful gods have consumed the fruits of our fathers' labor --
their flocks and herds, their sons and daughters.

Let us lie down in our shame, and let our disgrace cover us.
We have sinned against the LORD our God,
both we and our fathers; 
from our youth till this day
we have not obeyed the LORD our God."

"If you will return, O Japan, return to me,"            declares the LORD.

"If you put your detestable idols out of my sight and no longer go astray,
and if in a truthful, just and righteous way you swear,

'As surely as the LORD lives,'

then the nations will be blessed by him and in him they will glory."

Jeremiah 3:22-4:2
