Cyrus, The Kings of the East, & Mystery, Babylon

CYRUS, THE KINGS OF THE EAST, & MYSTERY, BABYLON

Many Bible teachers, exegetes, and commentators consider the various “beast” kingdoms (Daniel 7 & Revelation 13, 17) referred to in scripture as evil empires opposed to God and His will.  It might surprise some to know that Cyrus and the Persian empire were (unknowingly by Cyrus) used by God for His purposes and Cyrus was actually named as a type of messiah by God in the writings of Isaiah.

From The Cyrus Prophecy 04/01/14 by Dr. Stephen Jones
NOTE:  All indented paragraphs are quotes by Dr. Jones from the above article (other than scripture verses)

The Cyrus prophecy begins in Isaiah 44:24, where God had spoken of Cyrus, king of Persia, by name, calling him God’s “servant” (Isaiah 44:26), His “shepherd,” (Isaiah 44:28), and His “messiah” (Isaiah 45:1).  These chapters of Isaiah prophesied that the second beast empire would be ruled by a “messiah,” in that “he will perform all My desire” (Isaiah 44:28). In the same verse Cyrus was also to declare that Jerusalem would be built and that the foundation of the temple would be laid.

Daniel 5 contains an account of the fall of Babylon by the army of Cyrus, king of Persia.  The storyline of the fall of Babylon can be considered a type or a pre-prophetic account of the eventual fall of the present day Mystery, Babylon.  The current Babylon the Great is a world-wide banking empire, controlled by wealthy families who own the large international banks and most central banks of the world.  Several blog and internet writers refer to these so-called elite cabal as the Khazarian mafia mainly because the bulk of them are Khazarian converted Jews originally from the Khazarian area consisting of Ukraine and areas east of Ukraine between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.  They were Jewish converts of Japheth linage conquered by the old Russia (Russ) and the Persians (Iran) and deported into southern Russia and Eastern Europe.  Several hundred years later some of the Khazarian faux-Jews moved into Western Europe and referred to themselves as Ashkenazi. 

The Khazars
Japheth had seven sons:  Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan, Tubalm, Meshech, and Tiras.  The seventh son of Togarmah, who was a son of Gomer, was Khazar, from which the nation of converted-Jews acquired their name.  Togarmah and Ashkenaz were brothers according to Genesis 10.  The Khazar Jewish line became known as the Ashkenazi apparently adopting the name of uncle Ashkenaz. 

Do the names in the previous paragraph sound familiar?  They should because the majority of them are mentioned in Ezekiel 38 and 39 as those people prophesied to launch an invasion of the unwalled villages of the “mountains of Israel”.  However, this invasion has already happened, starting in the 1930’s when the Khazarians from Russia and Eastern Europe immigrated to Palestine, formed gangs, killed the native Arabs, and confiscated their land which they continue to this day.  The other nations listed in Ezekiel 38 also contain Khazarians who came to Israel.

Those who believe that Russia is Gog and Magog and that Russia will attack the Israeli state to fulfill Ezekiel’s prophecy are unaware of the history of Eastern European Jewry and its roots in the Khazar Kingdom that converted to Judaism more than a thousand years ago.

Not only are the Khazarian mafia elites operating the international banking system (Mystery, Babylon) and the so-called Federal Reserve, but they are attempting to create a one world government with the Khazars (of course) in charge and everyone else a servant or slave.  They have been using the high-jacked US military to perform their armed services and for a supply of weapons.  We have recently seen their use of Turkey and Saudi Arabia as well as paid terrorists to do their purposes in the Middle East and Northern Africa.

Babylon today is a secret, or hidden government that uses presidents and prime ministers, parliaments and congresses as their agents while remaining hidden in the background. This form of control was chosen in order to give the illusion of freedom and “democracy,” perpetuated by the editors of the controlled news media.

This illusion will soon end, however, and we must be prepared for the coming of a great disillusionment as men discover that much of what they believe has been a lie. Most important, we must know that God is the Author of this huge shift in world history from the illusion of freedom to actual freedom found in the Kingdom of God.

Cyrus and Babylon
The army of Cyrus diverted the water of the Euphrates river which flowed through the city and then they crossed over in waist deep water without Babylon being aware of the invasion.

From Herodotus Book 1 of The Histories, paragraph 191.
Then taking with him all his non-combatant troops, he withdrew to the spot where Nitocris had excavated the lake (which was then a marsh) and in this way [reopening the canal] so greatly reduced the depth of water in the actual bed of the river that it became fordable, and the Persian army, which had been left at Babylon for the purpose, entered the river, now only deep enough to reach about the middle of a man’s thigh, and, making their way along it, got into the town….

Isaiah prophesies the river waters will be dry in the presence of Cyrus.

Isaiah 44:27 KJV  That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers:

Isaiah then identifies Cyrus as the Persian king who would do God’s work in overthrowing Babylon.

Isaiah 44:28 KJV  That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.

In the next verse God, through Isaiah, refers to Cyrus as a messiah or “anointed one”.

Isaiah 45:1 KJV  Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut;

maw-shee'-akh  From H4886;
anointed; usually a consecrated person (as a king, priest, or saint); specifically the Messiah: - anointed, Messiah.

With the above scripture references, it would be reasonable to consider Cyrus and the Persian army as agents of God.  Cyrus would also be a type of Christ, the conqueror of Babylon.  He later rode into the city riding a white horse during the month of October which is the time of the feast of Tabernacles.  It is also written that Jesus will return on a white horse (which is symbolic).

Revelation 19:11 KJV  And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

As king, Cyrus did not rule from Babylon but from the city of Elam which is now in southern Iran and this was also predicted by Jeremiah.

Jeremiah 49:38 KJV  And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the LORD.

Cyrus diverted the water of the Euphrates river and conquered Babylon.  Could it be that the historical actions of Cyrus is a prophesy or type of the overthrow and destruction of the mostly unseen Mystery, Babylon?

The sixteenth chapter of Revelation describes the outpouring of the wrath of God upon the earth.  Verse 19 portrays the falling of cities and the great Babylon receiving the fierceness of God’s wrath.

Revelation 16:19 KJV  And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

However, prior to this in verse 12, we have the Euphrates river having its water dried up to prepare for the coming of the kings of the east. 

Revelation 16:12 KJV  And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

The Kings of the East
The kings of the East are essentially recognized as China and Russia, with possibly Iran and India.  Although many Christians and Americans consider China and Russia as enemies due to the propaganda of the USG and the Khazarian owned news media, they can and will be used by God for His purposes.  Therefore China and Russia are currently performing various prophetic roles than the majority of Christians and Zionist Christians may consider.  Both countries are performing certain aspects of their prophetic roles now, such as bombing terrorists and setting up a gold backed banking and monetary system.  The USA and NATO appear to be inciting Russia into a war.  If so, it is a war that NATO cannot win.  However, RT news posted an article saying several officers have stated the military bigwigs and the arms industry are denouncing Russia to increase the military budget which would buy more equipment.

Daniel, in chapters 2 and 7, saw four world empires rising prior to the establishment of the Kingdom of God, which would be the Stone kingdom of Daniel 2.  In Daniel 7 an extension of the fourth beast, which is the Roman Empire, is pictured as “the little horn”.  This little horn would be the Roman Church which temporarily assumed power as the Roman Kingdom.  Daniel 7:22 clarifies that the little horn extension would be overthrown and the dominion would be given to “the saints of the Most High”, which some consider the “overcomers” and not everyone claiming to be a Christian.

We are now watching the fall of the final beast system, as Russia and China dry up the river of Babylonian money and introduce a new banking system.

This collapse of Mystery Babylon is playing out by the original pattern of the fall of Babylon at the hands of Cyrus and Darius. In other words, it is as if we are seeing the rise of Medo-Persia all over again, except this time it is no longer those original nations, but Russia and China, “the kings from the east.”
