Why was the temple project successful?
1. GODíS SOVEREIGNTY
God said the temple would be built and it was. Godís sovereignty was particularly evident in lives of two kings - Cyrus and Darius.
a) Cyrus the foreordained king - Isaiah 44:28 & 45:1.
b) Darius the formidable king - Ezra 6:11 and Daniel 6:24.
2. GODíS SERVANTS
Ezra 6:14 "Haggai the prophet and Zechariah the son of Iddo". Just two men among 42,000 but God used them mightily as they preached His word.
3. GODíS SUPPLY
a) Financial supply - Ezra 6:4+8 "Let the expenses be given out of the kingís house...Moreover I make a decree what ye shall do to the elders of these Jews for the building of this house of God: that of the kingís goods, even of the tribute beyond the river, forthwith expenses be given unto these men".
b) Ceremonial supply - Ezra 6:9 "And that which they have need of, both young bullocks, and rams, and lambs, for the burnt offerings of the God of heaven, wheat, salt, wine, and oil, according to the appointment of the priests which are at Jerusalem, let it be given them day by day without fail".
Eíer since, by faith, I saw the stream
Thy flowing wounds supply,
Redeeming love has been my theme,
And shall be till I die.
