Jesus, the SERVANT of JEHOVAH is typified by CYRUS the SERVANT of JEHOVAH.

Isa.44:26-28
That confirmeth the word of his SERVANT, and performeth the counsel of his messengers; that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof: That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers: That saith of CYRUS, He is my SHEPHERD, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to JERUSALEM, Thou shalt be built; and to the TEMPLE, Thy foundation shall be laid.

King Cyrus, as the Servant of Jehovah served God to release God¶s people from captivity, build God¶s house, and built up God¶s kingdom (signified by the city); When the Lord Jesus Himself was on the earth, He also did the same thing ± He released the captives, he built up the church as the Body of Christ, and He established God¶s kingdom among people on earth. Cyrus issued the decree to rebuild Jerusalem and the temple.

These are all TYPES of the work of MESSIAH to build JERUSALEM (New Covenant Zion) and the temple, both referring to the CHURCH and the KINGDOM.

Isaiah 45:1-3
Thus saith the LORD to his ANOINTED, to CYRUS, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: And I will give thee the TREASURES of DARKNESS, and HIDDEN RICHES of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which CALL thee by thy NAME, am the God of Israel.

Cyrus was God's ANOINTED. Jesus is God's ANOINTED. Cyrus was called by name. Jesus was called by name. God used CYRUS to open the gates of Babylon and plunder the treasures of darkness. Jesus came to SPOIL the STRONGMAN and SPOIL his goods.

WE are the TREASURES of DARKNESS that JESUS TOOK. We are the HIDDEN RICHES of SECRET PLACES. Jesus laid the foundation of the church, the Messianic temple, and built up Zion, just as Cyrus did for earthly Jerusalem.

We believers are also the servants of Jehovah, doing the same thing as the Lord Jesus and Cyrus: we preach the gospel to release God¶s people from captivity, we build up His temple (the church, the house of God), and we build up His kingdom (the city).
