You mentioned only a few of the functions of Mashiach.  If someone 
only performed those three jobs, it wouldn't be enough to consider 
them Mashiach.  Cyrus, for instance, would not be able to correct 
Torah observance and cause all of Israel to keep Torah completely.

Shoshanna



Cyrus is not just called God's anointed, Cyrus is God's anointed.
That which Cyrus does becomes the job description of any future anointed,
namely to rebuild the temple, rebuild Jerusalem, and to bring home the
exiles.
Cyrus's actions become the prototype.
Best,
