Interesting who God uses for His work...

1 Ezra 2:2 (1 Esdras 2:2 LXX)

“Thus says Cyrus the king of the Persians: Israel's Lord, the Lord Most High, revealed and indicated to me, the king of the inhabited world, that I should build a house for Him at Jerusalem in Judea."

Encouraging Words...

Here we have a case where God chooses to use a Gentile, apparently one who does not follow Him, to do His work. God does speak to those saved and those unsaved. But beyond that He uses Cyrus, a gentile king, to typify Christ. God used Him to rebuild the physical temple and set the Jews free, just as He later uses Christ, the King of Jews, to build His church and set the Gentiles free. Glory be to God for He can use me too!
