When God is for Israel, who can be against her? Jerusalem and the temple were destroyed. The reason was the disobedience of Israel. So the Babylonian captivity happened. After seventy years of captivity, God stirred up the heart of king Cyrus to build Jerusalem. “who says of Cyrus, He is My shepherd, and shall do all My pleasure; even saying to Jerusalem, You shall be built; and to the temple, Your foundation shall be laid.” Isa 44:28. God is calling Cyrus His shepherd. He was a gentile Persian king.
These days we hear the call of Iran (Persia) to destroy Israel. The Ayatollah Khomeini does not know the God of Israel nor what Jehovah has done for them. Jehovah will not let anyone destroy Israel. What does the world think they can do to Israel? They will stand in awe and watch the deliverance of Israel from her enemies. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
