A year ago at this time, when France was between the two rounds of its most recent presidential election, Samuel Rhein said this, “Either Sarkozy or Royale needs to be a Cyrus in God’s hands at this time.” Recently, on Martin Scott’s blog, I posted a resume of the new “Mediterranean Union” proposed by Nicholas Sarkozy during his election campaign. Just now, I’m listening to a two-part teaching by Mike Bickle about “The Cyrus Anointing.”
This teaching was given in the context of IHOP’s “Joseph Company” marketplace-ministry. Mike is speaking mostly in a context of business leaders with respect to the Cyrus Anointing, though he does place it in a larger perspective as well. He probably wasn’t primarily thinking, however, about leaders of countries. Well, I was thinking about Samuel Rhein’s call to intercessors to pray for the next president to become like “Cyrus in God’s hands.” Consequently, when one sees what is proposed by the Mediterranean Union, the call for Nicholas Sarkozy to be like Cyrus and listens to this teaching, there are all sorts of interesting possibilities. Most importantly, however, I think that this is a call for intercessors to birth the purposes of God during this hour of history.
So, whether you listen to this specifically with respect to Sarkozy or just to understand the Cyrus anointing in the end times, I commend to you an excellent resource in these teachings to fuel your intercession.
