Cyrus and Christ

Here is a great article comparing Cyrus and Christ.  The downfall of the Babylonian and Papal systems are compared.  And the resettlement of Isreal back then and in our day are compared.  http://www.biblestudentarchives.com/documents/CyrusChrist.pdf

The 70 years desolation are compared from our day and back then.  But there is a wider similarity.  Just as it was decreed to rebuild Jerusalem and then the Messiah would came, so it will be in our day.  Messiah came 70 weeks or 490 years later.  The same will be true in our day.  Exactly what the start date is, is not yet known, whether it be 1874 or 1911 or some other.  Jesus will come at Armageddon 490 years later.
