CYRUS OF TODAY?

Posted on May 7, 2020 at 1:10 AM

Isaiah 45 The Passion Translation (TPT)


                                                            

God’s Shepherd, Cyrus

 45 “This is what Yahweh says to his anointed one,

 Cyrus, whose right hand I have grasped as my servant

to conquer nations and dethrone their kings.

For I will open doors before him

and no fortified gate will remain closed.

2

‘I will march out in front of you and level every obstacle.

I will shatter to pieces bronze doors

and slice through iron bars.

3

I will give you hidden treasures from dark, concealed places

and wealth waiting in secret sites

so that you recognize me, for it is I, Yahweh,

the God of Israel, who calls you by your name!

4

For the sake of my servant Jacob, and Israel my chosen,

I call you by your name and give you a title of honor.

But you don’t even know me.

5

I am Yahweh, the only God there is,

and you’ll never find another.

I will strengthen you for victory,

even though you do not intimately know who I am.

 

Yet through you everyone will know who I really am.

Those from the rising sun in the east to the west,

everyone everywhere will know

that I am Yahweh, the one and only God,

and there is no other.

7

I create light, and I make it dark.

I make bliss, and I create adversity.

I am Yahweh who does all these things.’

8

“Shower down righteousness, O heavens above.

Let the clouds drip with deliverance!

Let earth’s womb open and bear salvation’s fruit,

with righteousness rising up beside it!

I, Yahweh, have created all of them!

9

Shame on the one who argues with his Creator,

like one clay pot among other pots arguing with the potter.

Should the clay say to the potter,

‘What in the world are you doing with me?

Your hands are clumsy’?[l]

10

Shame on the one who complains to a father,

‘Why in the world did you conceive me?’

Or to a mother, ‘Why in the world did you bring me to birth?’”


11     

Listen to what Yahweh,

the Holy One of Israel, the One who shaped him, has to say:

“Why do you question me about the destiny of my children

or tell me what to do with my children and what I have made?

12

I created the earth and populated it with people.

With my own hands, I spread out the cosmos

and then commanded the starry host to shine!

13

I am the one who raised him up in righteousness!

I will make all his paths straight and level.

He will build my city and release my exiled people,

not because he was bribed or hired to do it,

declares the Almighty Yahweh!”

Yahweh, the Hope of the Nations

 

                                                                             

14

This is what Yahweh says to Cyrus:

“Egypt’s wealth, Cush’s treasures, and the tall Sabeans

will all be handed over to you.

In chains they will walk behind you.

They will be brought before you and they will bow down

and address you reverently, saying,

‘Truly God is with you. He alone is God, and there is no other.’”

15

Truly, O God of Israel, the Savior,

you are a God who hides himself.”[q]

16

All the idol-makers will be ashamed and disgraced,

and each one will walk away in confusion.

17

But Yahweh saves Israel with everlasting salvation!

You will not be put to shame nor disgraced for all eternity!

18

This is what Yahweh says, heaven’s Creator, who alone is God.

He created the earth, shaped it, and established it all by himself.

He made it fit and orderly and beautiful for its inhabitants.

He says:

“I am Yahweh, and there is no other god.


19

I didn’t whisper in secret, in a realm of darkness.

I didn’t say to Jacob’s tribes,

‘Seek me in vain.’

I am Yahweh!

I speak the truth and declare to you what is right!

20

“Come together! Assemble yourselves!

Draw near, you refugees from among the nations.

Those who parade their powerless wooden idols

have no revelation knowledge.

They keep on praying to gods who cannot save them.

21

Declare what is to be and state your case.

Go ahead and take counsel together.

Who knew all about this and declared it long ago?

Was it not I, Yahweh? There is no god apart from me.

I am a righteous God and a Savior.

There is no one you can compare to me.

22

So turn your heart to me, face me now,

and be saved wherever you are,

even from the ends of the earth,

for I alone am God, and there is no other.

23

I make this solemn oath to you in my own name;

this word sent from my mouth in righteousness

will not return unfulfilled:

‘Truly every knee will bow before me

and every tongue will solemnly swear allegiance to me!’

24

All will say of me,

‘Yes! Only in Yahweh do I find righteousness and strength!’

And all who were angry with me

will come before me and regret it!

25

In Yahweh, all of Israel’s offspring will triumph and shine!”


In this chapter of Isaiah God is speaking of Cyrus; many today are calling our President “Cyrus”. Read the whole chapter knowing Isaiah 45 and see what it declares. I, for one, will agree. I raise a Halleluaj for God’s Word. Will I proclaim this IS A PROPHECY OF our President?  How can I? But within myself, I say yes, O believe he is the Cyrus of this time, and he will obey God and our world will recognize God as the true, one and only God of the universe.

 

Perhaps you disagree with me; that’s ok. I just choose to believe;

Romans 8:28

28 So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God’s perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.

 

God did not create Covig-19, but He will bring good out of it. He is capable and He is faithful to His promises. He also had a hand in placing our President in office. I trust God. This pandemic was no surprise to Him, and He is always working for our good. Thank You Lord!

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
