The achievement of King Cyrus of Persia was written in the Bible. As you know, the Bible is a book that testifies about the Savior (John 5:39) and it’s given us for our salvation. Why was his achievement recorded in the Bible? Cyrus, a Gentile king, represents the Messiah.

This is what the LORD says to Cyrus, his anointed one, whose right hand he will empower… (Isaiah 45:1)

The word Messiah literally means “anointed one.” Cyrus had never been anointed and was not the Messiah. King Cyrus represents the Messiah who will appear in these days. Just as Cyrus, a Gentile king, freed the Jews from the physical Babylon, so the spiritual Cyrus, a Gentile, will free the spiritual Jews [the people of God] from the spiritual Babylon [a false church].

Actually, there is a record about the spiritual Babylon which would be fallen.

After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor [by the splendor of the Passover]. With a mighty voice he shouted: “Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. (Revelation 18:1-2)

It’s prophesied that the spiritual Babylon, a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, would be fallen in the end. Babylon was full of idolatry (see the book “Daniel”). Likewise, the spiritual Babylon, which is a home for demons, is also full of idolatry.

Then, who is the spiritual Cyrus who will unveil the truth and destroy the spiritual Babylon? The prophecy of King Cyrus is about Christ Ahnsahnghong. Christ Ahnsahnghong revealed the identity of Babylon through the Passover. When King Josiah celebrated the Passover, he was able to recognize every kinds of idols within the temple and destroyed such idols (2 Kings 23:21-24.) Whenever the people of god keeps the Passover, they can recognize the idols within the church. The light that exposes a home for demons is that of the truth of the Passover.

From the east I summon a bird of prey [eagle]; from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose. (Isaiah 46:11)

The above prophecy was fulfilled by King Cyrus first. But the main fulfillment of it is by Christ Ahnsahnghong who came from the east, a far-off land or Korea. Today, there are many churches and denominations around the world. However, most of them follow man-made rules such as Sunday service, Easter and Christmas, and forsake the teachings of the Bible. Will be there holy angels in a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit? The World Mission Society Church of God, established by Christ Ahnsahnghong, observes the Passover of the New Covenant and all other feasts of God including the Sabbath day by following the teachings of the Bible. Please believe in Christ Ahnsahnghong, the spiritual Cyrus, who freed us from the spiritual Babylon.
