Cyrus does not know God yet He used him as His instrument for His people. In 2016, God appointed Cyrus to rule over the US to be His instrument is part of His grace. In the past 4 years, Cyrus did everything God wanted to give His people.
As New York Times puts it,
When President Trump won the White House four years ago in a surprise victory, conservative Christians could not believe their good fortune.
At every turn of his presidency, he gave them everything they wanted: Two hundred federal judges appointed for life. An embassy in Jerusalem. Anti-abortion policies. Two Supreme Court Justices, and then in the final hours, a third. He was their bulwark, their defender, at a time when the country as they knew it, and their place in it, was changing. And he brought their movement to a pinnacle of political maturity.
Now the election of Joseph R. Biden Jr. marks a new chapter for conservative Christian power, which reached a peak under Mr. Trump. As Republican evangelicals around the country processed the week’s events, they reflected on how much they had gained in the last four years and on their fears over what could happen under a Biden administration. They also wondered when and how they would regain power.New York Times1
God’s warning to repent
Will Cyrus rule again? As in words of Amos, I am no prophet, Nor a son of a prophet (Amos 7:14). Unlike Amos, I was not called to prophesy either. However, just as a son would know the will of the father and know what he would do based what he had seen, we can clearly see our Heavenly Father is warning America of its coming persecution just on the horizon upon Christians and its ultimate destruction if they don’t repent.
He answered and said to them, “When it is evening you say, [‘It will be] fair weather, for the sky is red’; and in the morning, [‘It will be] foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot [discern] the signs of the times.Matt 16:2-3
As we can clearly see, Jezebel’s policies3 are all anti-Christian, demonic and against God’s commandments – and God must show mercy to His people.
Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden [His] face from you, So that He will not hear.Isa 59:1-2
It is very important that we repent of our sins and turn back to Him, then He will hear.
Cyrus will be honored
Someone said to me the other day, ‘you’re the most famous person in the world by far.’ I said, ‘no, I’m not’… they said, ‘who’s more famous?’ I said, ‘Jesus Christ’ I’m not taking any chances … I’m not having any arguments — Jesus Christ! And let me look up and I’ll say it’s not even close, … Masks, no masks, everything, you can do all you want, but you know, you still need help from the Boss.Trump, Campaign rally in Greenville, N.C2
Cyrus wasn’t ashamed to declare who is really in charge and gives glory and honor to God and His Son, Jesus Christ.
… the LORD says: … for those who honor Me I will honor, and those who despise Me shall be lightly esteemed.1 Sam 2:30
Cyrus will be honored. A defeat in election and losing his presidency is not an honor from God.
God is in control
And the LORD said to Gideon, “The people who [are] with you [are] too many for Me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel claim glory for itself against Me, saying, ‘My own hand has saved me.’Judg 7:2
Like the red sea before and the armies of Pharoah behind, like the Assyrian army of Sennacherib encamped around Jerusalem, like famine within Samaria and Ben-Hadad’s army surrounded in the days of Elisha, God is teaching us that He is our only hope and salvation, and to trust only in Him who will reveal His power and glory to do wonders for His people. God doesn’t need a huge army or weapons to defeat a massive army but rather just 300 brave men with pots and torches.
For the kingdom [is] the LORD’s, And He rules over the nations.Ps 22:28
God is in full control. Cyrus is the grace given to the US by God, who doesn’t care about the prophets of Jezebel in the media. Just as in Dan 2:21, God removed a judge to rise up another. God had prepared an arena where it seems impossible to win the giant yet He is looking for one brave soul to step in and fight. All it took was one brave boy and a stone. God had chosen Cyrus correctly, who is not a coward to concede but trusts in the LORD.
I will go before you And make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze And cut the bars of iron.Isa 45:2
This is why I believe Donald Trump will continue as the next president. While Cyrus can do many things like appointing judges, court cases etc, he cannot take the life of a judge – God did. Only after God took the life of a judge, He used Cyrus as His instrument to appoint another. While Cyrus can campaign and try to win votes, he cannot prepare an arena of razor-thin margin on several states for the battle to continue, even allow the enemy to rejoice – God did. How then can God show that He is in control before the media prophets of Jezebel?
Who among the gods is like you, LORD? Who is like you— majestic in holiness, awesome in glory, working wonders?Exod 15:11
God did all these to show that He is in control and can do wonders so that the world may know that He is the LORD who rules over nations.
