King Cyrus gave Ezra a command to go back to Jerusalem and rebuild the temple. Ezra gathered everything together and the people who wanted to go back some 42000. As a begin to rebuild the temple persecution came. The people of the land did not want him to have their nation back again. Ezra went back to the king to get a letter from him saying that he was to rebuild the temple. Through all the persecution Ezra knew that he was supposed to rebuild no matter what. He never gave up hope he never gave up anything. He still was going to do what God told him to do. Through any persecution in our lives, we are to see this and not what we see right in front of our face. When we see the end we looked through God’s eyes. And when we see the end we can walk through it and go to the other side. As it says in The Bible in the Lord’s prayer, Thy will be done on Earth as it is in heaven.
