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...
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."
