A Tale of Kings – Persian Kings

 

 

“… and there were kings among men… ” – Anonymous

 

Here are two examples of Great Persian Kings who did the “Will of God” though they did NOT know the True God.

 

(i) King Artaxerxes of Persia

 

“Now this is the copy of the decree which King Artaxerxes gave to Ezra the priest, the scribe, learned in the words of the commandments of the LORD and His statutes to Israel:

 

“Artaxerxes, king of kings, to Ezra the priest, the scribe of the law of the God of heaven, perfect peace.

 

And now I have issued a DECREE that ANY of the PEOPLE of ISRAEL and their priests and the Levites in MY KINGDOM who are WILLING to GO to JERUSALEM, MAY GO with you…” (Ezra 7:11 – 13, NASB)

 

(ii) Legendary King Cyrus of Persia

 

“Thus says the LORD to Cyrus His anointed,

Whom I have taken by the right hand,

To subdue nations before him [Cyrus]

And to loose the loins of [other] kings;

To open doors before him [Cyrus] so that gates will not be shut: …

 

For the sake of Jacob My servant,

And Israel My chosen one,

I have also called you [Cyrus] by your name [anointed];

I have given you a title of honor [king]

Though YOU [Cyrus] have NOT KNOWN Me [YHWH, God of All].” – YHWH Speaks (in Isaiah 45:1, 5 – NASB)

 

[Emphasis in Brackets – mine]

 

Conclusion

 

Sovereignty of God.

 

P/S:

 

Persians are modern day Iranians.

 

Their kings (of the past, quoted above) together with the “magi of the east Christmas mystery of Zoroaster which originated from Persia too” is DEEP STUFF as discussed in Chapter 8 (Pages 278 – 290) in Book in link below.
