   The same Lord God Jesus that Luke is following, inspired Jeremiah, Ezra, Nehemiah, Isiah and Daniel.

   Christian patriotism to countries should be to the degree that its Godly. Israel’s history gives us many clues. God allowed the Babylonians burn down God’s temple, wall of Jerusalem and fortified buildings, destroying all its valuable items. The king of Babylon deported all who escaped from the sword, until the Persian kingdom rose to power. This took place to fulfill the Lord’s message spoken through Jeremiah and lasted until the land experienced its sabbatical years. After the time of its desolation the land rested in to fulfill the seventy years. See 2Chron 36:20-21.

   (According to the books of Ezra–Nehemiah, a number of decades later about 538 BCE, the Jews in Babylon were allowed to return to the Land of Israel, due to Cyrus’s decree. He had been named by Jeremiah and Isaiah years before his birth. God made Cyrus the Persian Empire’s king in modern day Iran spanning several centuries, ‘from the sixth century B.C. until the twentieth A.D. His empire became one of the largest in history stretching across Europe.)

   According to the Bible, Cyrus the Great, king of the Achaemenid Empire, was the monarch who ended the Babylonian captivity. In the first year of his reign, he was prompted by God to decree that the Temple in Jerusalem should be rebuilt and that Jews who wished could return to their homeland for this purpose. (The Proclamation of Cyrus) (2Chron 36:22-23; In the first year of King Cyrus of Persia, in fulfillment of the LORD’s message spoken through Jeremiah, the LORD motivated King Cyrus of Persia to issue a proclamation throughout his kingdom and also to put it in writing. It read: “This is what King Cyrus of Persia says: ‘The LORD God of heaven has given me all the kingdoms of the earth. He has appointed me to build a temple for Him in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Anyone of his people among you may go up there and may the LORD his God be with him!”) This was prophesied in Leviticus 26:34; “‘Then the land will make up for its Sabbaths all the days it lies desolate while you are in the land of your enemies; then the land will rest and make up its Sabbaths.  )

   Jeremiah 26:5-12; You must pay attention to the exhortations of My servants the prophets. I have sent them to you over and over again. But you have not paid any attention to them. If you do not obey Me, then I will do to this temple what I did to Shiloh. And I will make this city an example to be used in curses by people from all the nations on the earth.’” The priests, the prophets, and all the people heard Jeremiah say these things in the LORD’s temple. Jeremiah had just barely finished saying all the LORD had commanded him to say to all the people. All at once some of the priests, the prophets, and the people grabbed him and shouted, “You deserve to die! They are prophesying lies to you and claiming my authority to do so. But I did not send them. I, the LORD, affirm it! “For the LORD says, ‘Only when the seventy years of Babylonian rule are over will I again take up consideration for you. Then I will fulfill my gracious promise to you and restore you to your homeland. For I know what I have planned for you,’ says the LORD. ‘I have plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I have plans to give you a future filled with hope. When you call out to Me and come to Me in prayer, I will hear your prayers.) 

   Daniel 9:1-5: In the first year of Darius son of Ahasuerus, who was of Median descent and who had been appointed king over the Babylonian empire: in the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, came to understand from the sacred books that the number of years for the fulfilling of the desolation of Jerusalem, which had come as the LORD’s -message to the prophet Jeremiah, would be 70 years. So I turned my attention to the Lord God to implore h=Him by prayer and requests, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. I prayed to the LORD my God, confessing in this way: (“O Lord, great and awesome God who is faithful to His covenant with those who love Him and keep His commandments, we have sinned! We have done what is wrong and wicked; we have rebelled by turning away from Your commandments and standards.) 

   (Isa 44:24-28; This is what the LORD, your Protector, says, the one who formed you in the womb: “I am the LORD, who made everything, who alone stretched out the sky, who fashioned the earth all by Myself, who frustrates the omens of the empty talkers and humiliates the omen readers, who overturns the counsel of the wise men and makes their advice seem foolish, who fulfills the oracles of his prophetic servants and brings to pass the announcements of His messengers, who says about Jerusalem, (‘She will be inhabited,’ and about the towns of Judah, ‘They will be rebuilt, her ruins I will raise up,’ who says to the deep sea, ‘Be dry! I will dry up your sea currents,’ who commissions Cyrus, the one I appointed as shepherd to carry out all my wishes and to decree concerning Jerusalem, ‘She will be rebuilt,’ and concerning the temple, ‘It will be reconstructed.’”)

   Ezra 1:1-11; In the first year of King Cyrus of Persia, in fulfillment of the LORD’s message spoken through Jeremiah, the LORD motivated King Cyrus of Persia to issue a proclamation throughout his kingdom and also to put it in writing. It read: “This is what King Cyrus of Persia says: “‘The LORD God of heaven has given me all the kingdoms of the earth. He has appointed me to build a temple for him in Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Anyone of his people among you (may his God be with him!) may go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and may build the temple of the LORD God of Israel – he is the God who is in Jerusalem. Anyone who survives in any of those places where he is a resident foreigner must be helped by his neighbors with silver, gold, equipment, and animals, along with voluntary offerings for the temple of God which is in Jerusalem.’” Then the leaders of Judah and Benjamin, along with the priests and the Levites – all those whose mind God had stirred – got ready to go up in order to build the temple of the LORD in Jerusalem.  All their neighbors assisted them with silver utensils, gold, equipment, animals, and expensive gifts, not to mention all the voluntary offerings. Then King Cyrus brought out the vessels of the LORD’s temple which Nebuchadnezzar had brought from Jerusalem and had displayed in the temple of his gods. King Cyrus of Persia entrusted them to Mithredath the treasurer, who counted them out to Sheshbazzar the leader of the Judahite exiles. The inventory of these items was as follows: 30 gold basins, 1,000 silver basins, 29 silver utensils, 30 gold bowls, 410 other silver bowls, and 1,000 other vessels. All these gold and silver vessels totaled 5,400. Sheshbazzar brought them all along when the captives were brought up from Babylon to Jerusalem.) 

   Now some six thousand years or so years later this same Lord God Jesus is demonstrating who He is and sends Out the Twelve Apostles

Luke 9:1-6; Jesus called the twelve together, He gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases, and He sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. He said to them, “Take nothing for your journey – no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, and do not take an extra tunic.  Whatever house you enter, stay there until you leave the area. Wherever they do not receive you, as you leave that town, shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them. Then they departed and went throughout the villages, proclaiming the good news and healing people everywhere. 

Herod Is Perplexed by Jesus

  (Luke 9:7-17; Herod the tetrarch heard about everything that was happening, and he was thoroughly perplexed, because some people were saying that John had been raised from the dead, while others were saying that Elijah had appeared, and still others that one of the prophets of long ago had risen. Herod said, “I had John beheaded, but who is this about whom I hear such things?” So Herod wanted to learn about Jesus.) (Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand,) When the apostles returned, they told Jesus everything they had done. Then He took them with Him and they withdrew privately to a town called Bethsaida. But when the crowds found out, they followed Him. He welcomed them, spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and cured those who needed healing. Now the day began to draw to a close, so the twelve came and said to Jesus, “Send the crowd away, so they can go into the surrounding villages and countryside and find lodging and food, because we are in an isolated place.” But He said to them, “You give them something to eat.” They replied, “We have no more than five loaves and two fish – unless we go and buy food for all these people.” (Now about five thousand men were there.) Then he said to his disciples, “Have them sit down in groups of about fifty each.” So they did as Jesus directed, and the people all sat down. Then he took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven he gave thanks and broke them. He gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. They all ate and were satisfied, and what was left over was picked up – twelve baskets of broken pieces.) 

   This Creator Jesus is now the Christian’s Mediator in heaven, He’s being worshiped by angels, saved people whose spirits are being perfected and will return with Him.
