God’s Exquisite Timing

Q: What significance did the Bible prophet Ezra have?

A: After the pagan King Cyrus suddenly offered to finance the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the Temple, and return all the sacred Temple vessels, which had earlier been carried off by the Babylonians (this decision by Cyrus was a great miracle … second only to the miraculous conversion of the Roman Emperor Constantine, in new testament times) Ezrah volunteered to get the work done.

This set everything in place for the advent of Jesus, the Messiah, a few hundred years later.

God’s timing is always exquisite.
