Isaiah 45 – A pattern

The Old Testament Prophet Isaiah prophesied about King Cyrus of Persia approximately 150 years before Cyrus was born. We find this prophecy in Isaiah 44 and 45 in the Bible. This prophecy, along with many others, show the providential Hand of God over princes and kingdoms that do not know Him — how He raised up Cyrus on behalf of His people, that they might be delivered; and though Cyrus did not know it, he would be used as an instrument in the hand of God moving according to the divine Will of God.

ISAIAH 45…..

This is what the Lord says to Cyrus His anointed,
Whom I have taken by the right hand,
To subdue nations before him

And to undo the weapons belt on the waist of kings;
To open doors before him so that gates will not be shut:

I will go before you and make the rough places smooth;
I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through their iron bars.
I will give you the treasures of darkness
And hidden wealth of secret places,

So that you may know that it is I,
The Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name.

For the sake of Jacob My servant,
And Israel My chosen one,
I have also called you by your name;
I have given you a title of honor
Though you have not known Me.

I am the Lord, and there is no one else;
There is no God except Me.
I will arm you, though you have not known Me,
So that people may know from the rising to the setting of the sun

That there is no one besides Me.
I am the Lord, and there is no one else,
The One forming light and creating darkness,
Causing well-being and creating disaster;
I am the Lord who does all these things.

Let’s reflect on this for a moment. One hundred and fifty years before this Prophecy found it’s fulfillment, Isaiah ACCURATELY predicted that God would RAISE UP a Gentile (Non Jewish) king, who did not know God, CALL him BY NAME, PROSPER him, and CHOOSE him to be God’s instrument to release the Jewish people from Babylonian captivity and send them back to rebuild Jerusalem and the Temple. To put this into even greater perspective, this prophecy was written DECADES before Cyrus was born, before Jerusalem and the Temple were destroyed and before Judah was taken into Exile in Babylon.

Can you imagine how this must have sounded to the Jewish people in Isaiah’s day? Isaiah was telling them that Jerusalem and the Temple would be destroyed and that THEY would be sent into exile, but ultimately God would raise up a Gentile (non-Jewish) King as His chosen instrument to rebuild the city and the Temple. I would imagine this prophecy did not “sit well” with either the kings of Judah or the people who could not fathom a world in which this was possible. In-fact, ancient Jewish tradition tells us that Isaiah was martyr’d by Judah’s evil King Manasseh, son of Hezekiah. According to the tradition, Isaiah was tied inside a sack, placed within the hollow of a tree trunk, and then sawn in two (Hebrews 11:37). Yes, I’d say that Isaiah’s prophecies regarding Jerusalem and the Temple were not popular. Israel believed that the Temple would stand forever and that Jerusalem would be their FOREVER HOME.

But, as Isaiah heroically pointed out, Israel sinned by forsaking God’s laws and precepts, and embracing the idols and ‘gods’ of the land. God had warned Israel, all the way back in the days of Moses, that this WOULD happen, but God did not leave them without hope.


Deuteronomy 29:25: Then people will say, ‘It is because they abandoned the covenant of the Lord, the God of their fathers, which He made with them when He brought them out of the land of Egypt. 26 And they went and served other gods and worshiped them, gods that they have not known and whom He had not assigned to them. 27 Therefore, the anger of the Lord burned against that land, to bring upon it every curse which is written in this book; 28 and the Lord uprooted them from their land in anger, fury, and in great wrath, and hurled them into another land, as it is this day.’

Deuteronomy 30:1 “So it will be when all of these things have come upon you, the blessing and the curse which I have placed before you, and you call them to mind in all the nations where the Lord your God has scattered you, and you return to the Lord your God and obey Him with all your heart and soul in accordance with everything that I am commanding you today, you and your sons, 3 then the Lord your God will restore you from captivity, and have compassion on you, and will gather you again from all the peoples where the Lord your God has scattered you.

History tells us that Israel (Judah/Jerusalem) DID sin against God and that as prophesied by Moses about 1000 years earlier, they were uprooted from their land and taken into captivity into the land of Babylon. But it was here in Babylon that the Jewish people, whose HOPE was rekindled by the prophecies of Isaiah, Ezekiel, and Jeremiah, REdiscovered their Jewish identity. They cried out to God, and God heard their cries.

As spoken first by Moses, and affirmed by the Old Testament prophets, God would be MERCIFUL to His people and RETURN them to the Promised Land. As prophesied by Isaiah, Cyrus of Persia would issue the decree to return the Jews to Jerusalem and help them RE-build Solomon’s ruined Temple. The rebuilding of the Temple is written about in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah.

Isaiah 44:28: It is I who says of Cyrus, ‘He is My shepherd,
And he will carry out all My desire.’
And he says of Jerusalem, ‘She will be built,’
And of the temple, ‘Your foundation will be laid.’”

Some 150 years after this prophecy was written by Isaiah, God brought it to pass when Persia’s King Cyrus issued the DECREE to restore and rebuild Jerusalem.

In 538/7 BC Cyrus decreed as follows:

Ezra 1:2: “The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah. Anyone of his people among you … let him go up to Jerusalem in Judah and build the temple of the Lord, the God of Israel.”

As foretold by the Prophet Isaiah, the decree by Persia’s King Cyrus released the Jews from captivity and permitted their return to Judea to rebuild JERUSALEM and THE TEMPLE.

Fast foward to today. God works in Cycles and patterns. What was will be again, there is nothing new under the sun. Did you know that Donald J. Trump is the 45th President of the United States? Here is what the Lord God told a sister in Christ in a recent dream (Joel 2)…

“This land (USA) was dedicated to serving God. As such, this land is under His rule and therefore under His judgment. He gave many chances for them to turn from their wickedness. He sent the man like CyrusThe 45th President has been written about in a foreshadowing of Isaiah 45.


Donald J. Trump is a type of King Cyrus. Like Cyrus, he is a Gentile (non-Jewish) man who did not know God before he became President. Many Christians were dismayed at his prior youthful escapades, his arrogant attitude and his unruly tongue. But still, God can use whom HE WILL. And Donald J. Trump is a man like Cyrus. It is no coincidence that Donald J Trump is the 45th President, and the prophecy about “King Cyrus” was written in Isaiah 45. You see, our God is just that awesome that He can even pull together Biblical numbers thousands of years in advance to be used for HIS GLORY. King Cyrus was the leader of Persia, the gobal superpower at that time. Today, the United States of America is the world’s most powerful nation. Like Cyrus, God placed Donald J. Trump (The Last Trump) in the seat of power to be used by God to bless Israel. And like King Cyrus, Donald J. Trump has been slowly coming to the realization that it is GOD ALMIGHTY who has RAISED him up and is using him in these last days. Donald Trump did not know God, but I believe he does now. Repentance at any stage of life is a beautiful fragrance in the nostrils of our God.

First family Trump: The words “TOO LATE” can seem discouraging and hopeless, but let me remind you of a few things—

  • It should have been too late for Abraham and Sarah to have a child.
  • It should have been too late for Lazarus to raise from the dead.
  • It should have been too late for Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego when they were thrown into the fiery furnace.
  • It should have been too late for David when he faced Goliath with only a sling and a stone.
  • It should have been too late when the Israelites were stopped at the Red Sea with Pharaoh at their backs.
  • It should have been too late for Paul and Silas when they were thrown into prison.
  • It should have been too late when Jonah was swallowed up in the belly of a whale.
  • It should have been too late for the prodigal son to return back home.
  • It should have been too late for Daniel in the lion’s den.
  • It should have been “TOO LATE” for Jesus himself to raise from the dead after three days in the tomb.

The nation of Israel also sees President Trump as a “type” of Cyrus, even putting his profile on their Temple Coin along side of ancient Persia’s King Cyrus. Ironic that there may be a war between the United States and Persia (Modern day Iran), both nations that are represented by this Temple coin.

Donald J. Trump, like Cyrus, is a blesser of Israel. Since becoming President of the United States, Donald J Trump has…

  • named Jerusalem as Israel’s Eternal Capital forever.
  • moved the American Embassy to Jerusalem. It was said that this could never be done….Mr. Trump accomplished this.
  • publicly recognized that the Golan Heights belong to Israel and are a part of their land.
  • pulled the US out of the terrible Iran nuclear deal that was designed to ultimately destroy Israel.
  • forged numerous peace deals throughout the Middle East, including the UAE, BAHRAIN, SUDAN…and more will follow. The Abraham Accords. More nations will follow, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and others.

But now it looks like President Trump is in trouble in the United States. It appears that he will lose the election because MOST of the Mainstream Media outlets are declaring Joe Biden the winner and the new President – ELECT. Now we know that Joe Biden is not pro-Israel and will dismantle all of the good things that President Trump has done for Israel. How can this be?

Things are not always as they seem. The American public DID vote for President Trump; however, there has been WIDESPREAD VOTER FRAUD in which it now appears that the elite power brokers in Washington (The Swamp), some State and local Government swamp members throughout the US, the Shadow Governments of the world, foreign political enemies such as the Chinese Goverment and Iran, are all in collusion with the Mainstream Media to falsify the US election results and rip the Presidency from the hand of Mr. Trump. Their goal is to usher in the antichrist global kingdom, the New World Order. This is happening now, and so far, they appear very successful. There are many people under the veil of deception who think that Mr. Biden is the winner of the American Election.

However, we must stay tuned because God is not finished yet with President Donald J. Trump. They will eventually have their antichrist kingdom that will last 3.5 years; however, only Elohim (God Almighty) controls the timing, not satan, nor his minions, nor man. If this Cyrus pattern holds true, then Mr. Trump will be instrumental in the building of the 3rd Temple in Jerusalem. We are in the Last Days, and this is a reality. As we have stated in other posts, the Jewish Sanhedrin has reconvened and are absolutely intent on building the 3rd Temple. They have blueprints, they have all of the articles such as the Golden Menorrah, the Table of Shewbread, the Alter of Incense, the Bronze Altar, the High Priest Vestements, etc. They are READY. But…..Cyrus…….

OUR THOUGHTS: ALTHOUGH Donald Trump appears to be down and out at this time, don’t believe it for a minute. Ask yourself…How in the world did Mr. Trump recover SO QUICKLY from the Corona Virus at 74 years old? Just a couple of weeks after his miraculous recovery Mr. Trump was out on the Campaign Trail literally attending multiple massive rallies per day. Were the medications that they gave him THAT GOOD?….Or did GOD ALMIGHTY supernaturally heal and strengthen him for this final leg of the battle? And was it a coincidence that Ruth Bader Ginsburg died just a few weeks before the election, giving Mr. Trump plenty of time to confirm another conservative justice on the Supreme Court?

Do you believe in coincidences?

If Donald J.Trump, the 45th President of the United States, is a type of Cyrus, written about in Psalm 45….then it’s very possible that God’s not finished with him yet. The Mainstream Media will not report this, but there is an epic battle brewing in the United States Supreme Court. Mr. Trump’s legal team has EVIDENCE of massive voter and election fraud in the United States via the mail in ballots and also the Dominion electronic voting system that was designed to throw elections in favor of one candidate. When they stopped the count, President Trump was in the lead in all of the contested battle ground states. But then, a big influx of phony mail-in ballots arrived in the middle of the night, many in garbage cans, ALL of them for Mr. Biden. This is statistically impossible, AND follows the same pattern that was used in two South American nations. When the Supreme Court orders a TRANSPARENT RECOUNT (to date, many districts have not allowed Republican representatives to OBSERVE the recount, even boarding up the windows so they could not SEE), there is a very, very good chance that Mr. Trump will win this battle and be named by the Supreme Court of the Land…The President of the United States 2nd term.

This will SHOCK and ANGER the world, especially the MEDIA and the ELITE powers of the world who are already taking their VICTORY LAPS.

It is our belief that President Trump will be named President of the United States, 2nd Term. If the Cyrus pattern continues, President Trump’s support or decree for the building of the 3rd Temple will be similar, but not an exact duplicate, to Cyrus’ decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem and the 2nd Temple in 538 BC. However, these are just our thoughts, and God’s plan could unfold entirely differently!

But before this happens, here are some thoughts... For the Cyrus pattern to continue, we may see these things happen…..

  1. President Trump must win the battle in the Supreme Court. If he has the evidence they say he has…and he has the Court now balanced in such a way that there are more Conservative Justices than Liberal, then this is not only doable, this is likely. It is also possible that neither candidate gets a clear win (super thin margin around 1%)..and provided that Mr. Trump REFUSES to concede, then the US Constitution calls for the House of Representatives to decide the election. But this will be different than most expect, one vote for each state per the constitution. Currently Republicans hold 30 states (Democrats hold 19) in the House of Representatives, which will give Mr. Trump the majority vote and the win. (2/23/2023 – we now know this did not happen. Because of sin, God has allowed the U.S. and other nations to be taken by the Chaldeans/Shadow Government/Mystery Babylon)
  2. There will likely be a type of civil war in the US. The enemy will not go quietly into that good night. He already has his “troops” up and ready for a fight ,with bricks, and fireworks, incendiary devices..and other weapons of war, ready for total civil unrest and societal breakdown in America. Expect foreign nations to get involved.
  3. There may be a GREAT literal SHAKING in the United States. Many are expecting a HUGE EARTHQUAKE on the West Coast, coinciding with a possible tsunami wave and NATURAL DISASTERS. America, a bitterly divided kingdom, cannot stand. No matter which candidate becomes President, America is under judgment for leaving her first love….JESUS CHRIST.
  4. Israel/Jerusalem will likely be attacked at the same time that America is embroiled in the mess that will ensue from this election debacle. Israel has many enemies who are poised to attack (particularly Iran), and with America pre-occupied, the enemy will sense the perfect opportunity to STRIKE! Like the rebuilding of the Temple in Cyrus’ day, we expect some destruction in Jerusalem that will also require REBUILDING. (2/23/2023 – It’s looking very likely that the involvement of the US and Nato in Ukraine will lead to full-blown nuclear WWIII.)
  5. Out of the smoke and ashes, God’s 3rd Temple will arise, along with God’s FINAL Harvest of souls, and great and mighty Miracles before the Rapture and the antichrist is revealed..

Buckle your seatbelts, this ride is about to get BUMPY. No matter which man sits on the “Throne” as President in the United States, God is going to SHAKE the nations as kings and kingdoms rise and fall. We are in the LAST DAYS and God…NOT MAN is the only One who can raise up kings or take them down.
