Ezra 6:3 KJV
In the first year of Cyrus the king the same Cyrus the king made a decree concerning the house of God at Jerusalem, Let the house be builded, the place where they offered sacrifices, and let the foundations thereof be strongly laid…
In that fight that supposedly ended Bukom Banku’s bragging rights as an undefeated boxer, Samir Bastie made a statement after his victory, which literally translates, “once we have come, we have come.”
It suggests that once the appointed time of anything is due, no act of man can actually prevent same from happening. To a large extent, the boxer’s comments are true. I have seen him in a few Glo commercials lately and I suspect he’s signed up as an ambassador for their brand. Who knows what’s next for him?
When the time was due for the temple to be rebuilt, after the Jews had returned home from exile, it took the King of Babylon himself, a pagan king for that matter, King Cyrus, to issue the decree. This doesn’t make sense in anyway… but the time was due!!
I believe everything has its time… and in God’s own time He makes things beautiful. If you are enduring now, I write this to strengthen you and your resolve to endure. The time will surely come and the source of the news will even keep you in awe.
Have a blessed day. #TGIF
