Cyrus conquered Babylon at the exact time the Jews had completed 70 years of captivity.  One of the first thing Cyrus did was sent the Jews back to Jerusalem to rebuild their temple.

The Trump/Cyrus connection:

It just so happens that this year, 2018 is exactly 70 years since Israel was reformed as a nation.  We have Trump moving the US embassy back to Jerusalem and all of this is right on time.  The Lord is a God of perfect timing.  So far, everything that is happening in our day is an exact mirror of what happened in Cyrus' days.  If the pattern were to continue to play out exactly to pattern, what is the next event?  Rebuilding the temple.

Time is indeed short.  We have no idea when exactly the Lord Jesus is coming back for us.  He was very clear that it would be an unknown day and hour, that it would be like the days of Noah and Lot.  Everything will be business as usual then in the blink of an eye, this world will be turned upside down.  We were told to prepare to meet our Lord.  We were told to be watching, waiting and praying for His arrival.  This world will mourn when they see Him.  We will rejoice when we see Him.  Two different groups of people with two different destinies.

Be watching and ready for the unexpected arrival of our Master.  He is coming, and when He shows up most will be unprepared.  Let us be those wise virgins who are watching, prepared and ready so we can tell the Lord "we've been expecting you" when He makes His appearance.

grace and peace
