So far in our historical account of Israel and Judah, we’ve seen the bad kings of the northern kingdom of Israel with their capital city of Samaria, resort to paganism and corrupt ways. As a result, God sent the Assyrians to take them captive and haul them away as judgment. The prophets Hosea, Amos and Micah warned them, but they didn’t listen. That kingdom and its people are now gone. In its place are a new breed of half-Jews, half-Gentiles in Samaria. The rest of the 10 tribes of Israel are scattered all over.
The only tribes out of the 12 left are Judah, Benjamin and the Levites, who were the priests. Paul was from the tribe of Benjamin and of course, Jesus was of the tribe of Judah. Those had to stay in existence for God’s plan of salvation to happen. Part of that, was the promise that the royal lineage of David would continue.
We’re jumping back to 2 Kings before we study the next part of Isaiah’s prophecy, so you can see the detestable things that this next king did. Meet Manasseh, the worst of the worst. How bad was he? Let’s dig in…
It’s time to GET RIGHT WITH GOD!
Are you ready to meet God today? You may just meet God today!
If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then…
Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.
Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly…
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. I surrender my whole life to you and I will follow you for the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
