Believe it or not

Today I listened to a man tell of how he comes to terms with Trump becoming the 45th president as a christian.
God does not always choose christian people to further his plans,sometimes one that is brash and just a little different, can be chosen.
He spoke of reading in Isaiah 45th chapter that Cyrus was such a man and he believes that Trump just might be the "Cyrus" of  our days now.
One that HE will lead to help our country from the evil that has taken over.  God can do many things that man alone cannot,and I want to believe that this could be so.
I have read this chapter in Isaiah and  can see the similarities of Cyrus and Trump.
I am hoping others will read and prayerfully decide themselves if there just could be something here.
I have never seen such a movement in our country in the elections as I have this year -state after state.,"The People" have spoken.  Evil surrounds us each and everyday.
we have monuments to war veterans desecrated and even removed.  laws made and some just done without laws to back them up.   Killings and riots in the streets. family members killing their own also.
It is not safe to trust and without trust where are we?  I am saddened each day when I see more of the same.

Nearly 150 years before Cyrus was born, the prophet Isaiah foretold his birth, his name, and the tasks that the Creator God had predetermined for him to accomplish. The Bible records that certain people are foreordained to be born and carry out specific tasks for God during their lifetime and a few of these individuals are even named before their birth. Cyrus the Great was one of these individuals whom God had predestined to play a pivotal roll in his awesome plan for humanity.
King Cyrus was an extremely important person, because God destroyed the Babylonian empire through him, and brought a close to a seventy-year punishment of the Jews that God imposed on them for their rebellion against him. Also through King Cyrus, God set into motion his seventy-week prophecy that fixed the year for the Messiah's death and resurrection, and reveals the sequence of events and dates for the Messiah's return which will bring to an end human rule of the earth, and usher in the government of God to rule over the entire earth.
Although historians have slightly differing interpretations and views of the historical record concerning the dates of Cyrus' birth and death and his various accomplishments, there is ample historical documentation that Cyrus the Great was indeed a real person whose name is mentioned over 22 times in the Bible and whose tomb in Iran can be visited today.
