      Cyrus Habib announced that instead of being on the ballot in November for a second term as lieutenant governor, he would leave office to become a Roman Catholic priest. In the books of Ezra and Nehemiah, we find four royal commands issued by Median and Persian kings that could possibly qualify as the “commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem.” The first command was by Cyrus in Ezra The second was by Darius in Ezra and The third was by Artaxerxes in his 7th year in Ezra

    He devoted the later years of his life to writing various historical memoirs, the two most important of which that have come down to modern times are, first, the narrative of his own expedition, under Cyrus the Younger, and, secondly, a sort of romance or tale founded on the history of Cyrus the Great.   The book of Daniel tells us that on the night that Cyrus made his way into Babylon, Belshazzar, the king of Babylon was having a great feast in the palace. Belshazzar the king made a great feast for a thousand of his lords, and drank wine in the presence of the thousand. ~ Daniel That very night Belshazzar, king of the Chaldeans, was slain.

      Why Trump Reigns as King Cyrus. he picks up a Bible and turns to the 45th chapter of the book of Isaiah, The great thing about kings like Cyrus, as far as today’s Christian nationalists. Cyrus was the founder of the world’s first major empire and “is mentioned 23 times by name and alluded to several times more” in the Bible. And a few of his titles include, “shepherd”, “anointed” and “smoothing the way,” which meant Jews’ trouble free return from captivity.
