    The Book of Proverbs hits hard, it shows us where we fall short. It's always good to return there for guidance & wisdom as we walk closer to the upward calling of CHRIST. Philippians 3:14, Proverbs 1:1,

    It may be best to encourage yourself by reading Psalms 139, Romans 8, John 17, Jude 1:24-25, while you reading Proverbs.

    Hopefully this is encouraging & helpful

    Hello Vera. Cyrus is a Persian King, whom the LORD God had chosen & appointed to release His people from captivity. You might remember, that Judah went into Babylonian captivity, while Israel went into Assyrian captivity. The prophet Isaiah who prophesied during the reign of Judah's Kings Hezekiah & Manasseh, some 150 years earlier, clearly proclaimed that a future Persian king called Cyrus would be instrumental in releasing God's people. Under the Babylonian kings, Judah found no respite, but God had planned that Cyrus would overthrow Babylon & eventually release the people.

    Isaiah 44:28 refers to Cyrus as God's shepherd. Though 'shepherd' is used to denote one who leads & guides a flock, here for Cyrus, God uses this name as Cyrus would be the one to not only release the people but would ensure that they made it home. And as God's chosen, Cyrus would be specially raised to not only destroy the city & the kingdom of Babylon, but also in delivering the Jewish captives & rebuilding Jerusalem & the Temple.

    Is then Cyrus "a form of Christ?" As far as a saviour (one who saves) goes, yes, because he was God's instrument to save His people from captivity. But could Cyrus ever accomplish what Jesus Christ has done for us? Clearly, No. Because Jesus not only rescued us out of the clutches of our enemy Satan, but secured God's forgiveness for us & giving us a new Spirit & a new life; Cyrus could never do all that for he was just a man, a heathen sinner at that. But Cyrus was merely a shadow & a revelation of the Power of God in the lives of the God-fearing & godless. God can choose whomever He wishes to accomplish His Plans, but only Jesus could fulfil that great Plan for the saving of mankind's wretched soul.

  • Andy on Isaiah 44
    Read Isaiah ch 44 and 45 .

    Put the nonsense to rest .

    44.24

    Thus saith, the LORD , thy redeemer , and he that formed thee from the womb , I Am the Lord that made all things ; ....

    No one not even Jesus ever dare makes this claim .

    I am grateful, sir.
  • Chris - in Reply on Isaiah 44
    Hello Victor. The passage of Scripture you're referring to ( Isaiah 44:26) is part of God's pronouncement (through Isaiah) of the future restoration of Israel (part of this prophecy is from verse 21-28; otherwise you will need to read all of chapters 43 & 44 to get the complete discourse).

    God begins to identify & confirm His people, that He is a God Who can blot out Israel's transgressions, but also has the power to accomplish all that He Wills (vv21-23). This God Who created the heavens & earth & filled them (v24), also can bring to nought the works of the diviners, liars & those who think themselves to be wise (v25). And this is the God that will do all that He has spoken through His servants & messengers; and this Word is His promise that Jerusalem & the cities of Judah will be built & inhabited again and the barren places will be raised up again (i.e. after their captivity to Babylon) (v26).

    This God will do through Cyrus king of Persia (after he conquered Babylon). Even though an enemy to the Jews, God will use Cyrus as His Instrument to return the Jews back to their homeland & for the rebuilding of the Temple as well. You can read more of this in Isaiah chapter 45 and then read Ezra chapter 1. Trust this will help you understand this better.
  • Victor Essiet on Isaiah 44
    That confirmeth the word of his servant, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof:

    Please, explain, thanks.

    Matthew 24:36 is all red letter so that means Jesus is speaking. Listen. Mark it in your Bible.
    "But of that day and hour knows NO man, no, not the angels of Heaven, BUT my FATHER ONLY."

    Jesus is seated at the right hand of God, making intercession FOR THE SAINTS.

    Don't wait till the last minute to be born again, tell people you love, about salvation, to talk to those who are ready to hear it. Put Chick tracts on windshields. Don't harden your hearts. Everyone spends time on Facebook and Twitter. We're all experts on talking. Make it count for a someone. It is time. Anybody remember Billy Graham? One of the greatest soul winners! He taught us on prophesy! It's not hard

    Holy, Holy, Holy, LORD GOD almighty. Heaven and earth is full of THY Glory and to YOU be all Glory, Honor and Praise.
  • JS - in Reply on Isaiah 44
    As Yahchanan indicates, the entire Bible is an invitation to accept God and praise Him as the creator and ONLY GOD. There are but two choices: receive Jesus as savior or refuse to accept Him and pay the penalty.
  • Chimfumpa Freddy on Isaiah 44
    The Holy Spirit only comes from God the True Creator of the world and man.
    Lets be careful with spiritisism We may think that we have the Holy spirit from God and yet it is the spirit from other evil gods, which claim to have the 'holy'spirit also.
    So many people are possessed with the evil spirits thinking that they have the holy spirit. Even healing in the name of the 'Holy' spirit. Beware!
  • Funke Ogunsola on Isaiah 44
    Yes, the Lord has redeemed me. He has justified me. He has removed all records of my transgressions and sins out of my life. I am free!!! Praise the Lord!!!
  • BSP on Isaiah 44
    Thanks to Jesus' ransom sacrifice we can have our sins blotted out. This doesn't mean that they completely go away but his ransom is so great that it covers over those sins and allows us to have a relationship with Jehovah God.

  • Bud on Isaiah 44
    Israel Jantzen :JESUS CHRIST has already destroyed the temple (HIS body) on the cross and is building HIS new temple by everyone that receive HIM. All christens are apart of HIS temple, which HE is the head. Are you apart of HIS temple, if not ask HIM to accept you in, HE is love and waiting for all to be part of HIS temple.
  • Israel Jantzen on Isaiah 44
    Isa 44-45 say that Cyrus would rebuild the temple, but Ezra and Neh say that it was rebuilt during the reign of Darius, three kings later. That is not a contradiction if Cyrus is actually a type of Christ at his second coming, when Ezk 37 says Christ will build his own temple. Notice that that necessarily means that Christ will destroy the third temple that Israel is planning to build.
  • A disciple on Isaiah 44
    He that is of God will hear God's words; so then, the Jews who don't believe in Jesus Christ are not of God. And the Lord Jesus said to them, If you will not believe that I AM, you will die in your sins. "Many shall come from the east and from the west, and shall sit down with Abraham and all the Prophets in the kingdom of God; but the children of the kingdom shall be cast out."
  • A disciple on Isaiah 44
    YAHCHANAN; The whole purpose of God for calling Israel, and giving them the Law and the Prophets, was for being the family through who Christ was appointed to come into the world. Jesus is the Saviour, not Israel! God hides His face from Israel and has blinded their hearts, until they repent, confess their sins, and the sins of their ancestors, and believe in Jesus: He alone takes away our sins!
