"For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another."(Psalms 75:6-7)
God will take care of His Own and He often uses unusual chosen vessels to do so..... Pharaoh fed Israel for over 400 years, Cyrus of Persia (Iran) delivered Israel from the Babylon captivity, Moses used Egyptian Gold to build the Tabernacle in the Wilderness!! King Solomon made business deals with Hiram, King of Tyre, to get the magnificent "Temple of Solomon" built and ready for Worship!! Prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel denounced Tyre but years later when Jesus visited Tyre He was well received!! It could quiet possibly have been a harvest on the good work of King Hiram by helping King Solomon establish a House of Worship in Israel centuries earlier!! God doesn't forget anyone that helps His people!!! God sees the "Big Picture" and works among nations in unusual ways using unusual people to accomplish His Purpose at various times!!! Trust Him!!!
