The Cyrus Anointing
God is a merciful Being. He calls and anoints
His people to fulfill His plans and purposes for the world. God’s
people are to be kings and priests before Him, serving Him and
ruling with Him as He brings all things under Christ (Revelation
1:5, 1 Peter 2:9; Psalm 110: 1-3).
The Jews of the Old Testament were captured by
the Babylonians. God told Jeremiah that they would be in bondage for
70 years. When the seventy years were about fulfilled, God anointed
the king of Persia, Cyrus, and commissioned him to free His people
so they could return to Jerusalem.
God is, I believe, anointing people and
commissioning them to serve Him as He brings His people out of their
bondage to the "spiritual Babylon," which is ruled by the mother of
all harlotry (Revelation 17:5). God is calling His people to come
out of Babylon (Revelation 17:4). The ways of Babylon are
characterized by living wantonly, without moral restraint, and by
living sensuously, pleasing ourselves and trusting in our own wisdom
and strength (Revelation 18:7).
In Christ, we have been brought up into the
heavenly Mount Zion, the New Jerusalem (Hebrews 12:22-29). In Christ
we have access to the throne of God, where we can come for grace to
bring about the reign of Christ in all the spheres of influence He
has given to us (2 Corinthians 10:13-15). In Christ we are to
declare the destruction of the ways of Babylon, so that the ways of
God’s kingdom can be established on the earth as they are in heaven
(Revelation 18:5-6; 2 Corinthians 10:3-6; Matthew 6:10).
God is, I believe, anointing people with the
anointing of Cyrus to participate in these tasks. The Cyrus
anointing includes the following:
is given so those who are called can do all His pleasure (Isaiah
44:28). Great grace is required and great grace is given under
this anointing, but the purpose is for ALL of God’s pleasure to
be accomplished. This is the heart of His anointed ones--to live
solely for the pleasure and glory of God.
this anointing are to declare that Jerusalem shall be built and
that the foundations of the temple will be laid (Isaiah 44:28).
God’s people are to experience the reality of living in the New
Jerusalem. We have been brought here, in Christ. The ways of the
New Jerusalem are to be brought into us, and then we are to
bring about the ways of the New Jerusalem into our spheres on
the earth. We are God’s temple. Jesus has come into us to
cleanse His temple, to fill us with His Spirit, and to unite us
with Himself, so that the world will know that God has sent Him.
These foundational truths and behaviors are to be in us and to
come forth from us. The nature of God in us will accomplish
these things (2 Peter 1:3-4).
God will lead
His anointed ones into places of darkness that are ruled by
ungodly kings, so that His people who are being held captive in
these places can be freed. God will prepare the way for those
under this anointing to walk, and He will give them victory so
they can bring His people out of bondage (Isaiah 44:1-2).
God will reveal
the strongholds of evil that have held people and nations in
bondage so that His anointed ones can prophetically declare His
Word and see the strongholds destroyed. He will reveal His plans
and purposes for peoples, lands and nations to His anointed ones
so they can declare them and watch as they come about (Isaiah
God will share
His eternal plans and purposes with His anointed ones so they
can pray and seek Him to fulfill the desires of His heart
God will give
great grace to His anointed ones so they can walk in all of His
ways, continually receiving and walking in the flow of His
righteousness from His Holy Spirit. Every day they will see His
kingdom advancing. They will learn more from the Heavenly
Kingdom, and will bring it onto the earth. His anointed ones are
to be walking in faith with Him, not looking to people for
provision (Isaiah 45:13; Is 9:7).
provide for His anointed ones by having men of wealth need their
revelation and their anointed services. These men of wealth will
recognize the great presence of God upon His anointed ones
