Salena Zito reprises "Trump as King Cyrus"

Jack Kemp

The article below is from a Christian publication. Salena Zito also borrowed the phrase "King Cyrsus Christians" to describe Christians who saw Trump as an agent to restore morality even though he was not that personally moral. It is a chapter heading in her book "The Great Revolt," about Middle American Trump voters and the election of 2016. King Cyrus was a pagan who released Persian Jews from persecution and lead to the building of Herod's Temple in Jerusalem.

This is what The Christian Post had to say in March of 2018...

Netanyahu Likens Trump to Bible's King Cyrus, a Comparison Made by Some Evangelicals
By Brandon Showalter, CP Reporter

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu likened President Donald Trump to Cyrus the Great, the Persian king who rescued the Jewish people from Babylonian captivity, a comparison some evangelicals have been making since Trump's election campaign...

"I want to tell you that the Jewish people have a long memory. So we remember the proclamation of the great King Cyrus the Great — Persian King. Twenty-five hundred years ago, he proclaimed that the Jewish exiles in Babylon can come back and rebuild our temple in Jerusalem," Netanyahu said...

Among evangelicals, arguably the most vocal proponent of the Trump as Cyrus thinking is Lance Wallnau, author of God's Chaos Candidate: Donald J. Trump and the American Unraveling. Wallnau has expressed enthusiastic support for Trump and frequently argues that it is significant that Trump is the 45th American president and that the prophecy about King Cyrus delivering the Israelites from captivity appears in the 45th chapter of Isaiah. Cyrus is the only Gentile in the Old Testament who is called "anointed" by God...

"For believers who subscribe to this account, Cyrus is a perfect historical antecedent to explain Trump's presidency: a nonbeliever who nevertheless served as a vessel for divine interest."
