What was God’s purpose in raising up Cyrus to save Israel?
God wanted to anoint Cyrus, king of Persia, and give him the power to make the nations surrender. God will enable him to conquer Babylon and its treasures. Although Cyrus did not know God, God called him by name for the purpose of saving His servant Israel, just as the Ten Commandments proclaimed. The righteousness that pours down from the heavens and the firmament, and the salvation that springs from the earth, are acts of God’s power and gifts of generosity. It is God’s will to create all things in the world and the world, and it is also out of His righteousness that God raised up Cyrus.
