God Uses Cyrus
1 This is what the Lord says to His anointed, to Cyrus [king of Persia], whose right hand I have held to subdue nations before him, and I will ungird the loins of kings [disarming them]; to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut:
2 “I will go before you and level the mountains; I will shatter the doors of bronze and cut through the bars of iron.
3 “I will give you the treasures of darkness [the hoarded treasures] and the hidden riches of secret places, so that you may know that it is I, The Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you (Cyrus the Great) by your name.
4 “For the sake of Jacob My servant, and of Israel My chosen, I have also called you by your name; I have given you an honorable name though you have not known Me.
5 “I am the Lord, and there is no one else; there is no God except Me. I will embrace and arm you, though you have not known Me,
6 That people may know from the rising to the setting of the sun [the world over] that there is no one except Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other,
7 The One forming light and creating darkness, causing peace and creating disaster; I am the Lord who does all these things.Isaiah 45:1-7 (AMP)
