"Surely at the command (mouth) of the LORD it came upon Judah, to remove them from His sight because of the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he had done, and also for the innocent blood which he shed, for he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood; AND THE LORD WOULD NOT FORGIVE." (All caps mine)
2 Kings 24:3 & 4
Jeremiah 22:3-5 This is very important...
"Thus says the Lord, 'Do justice and righteousness, and deliver the one who has been robbed from the power of his oppressor. Also do not mistreat or do violence to the stranger, the orphan, or the widow; and do not shed innocent blood in this place.
"For if you men will indeed perform this thing, then kings will enter the gates of this house, sitting in David's place on his throne, riding in chariots and on horses, even the king himself and his servants and his people.
'But if you will not obey these words, I swear by Myself," declares the Lord, 'that this house will become a desolation"
Read the study and then do your own:
The Manasseh Judgment
was just listening to a hymn that said God's wrath was satisfied on the cross. Then I thought, so now, since Jesus has been given the throne and power and wisdom and might
we need to fear the WRATH OF JESUS.
To every veteran who ever fought in a war or even someone in a different scenario, WHEN YOU GO INTO A BATTLE WITH YOUR BROTHERS AND THEY DIE FOR YOU...IT WAS NEVER IN VAIN. There is no greater love than to lay down your life for your friend. The warrior King Jesus said this. It is eternal. No matter why the war started or who sent you and your friends, that is not the issue. Jesus was innocent too. He was following the will of His Father. He was obedient. Granted some men are evil and will create conflict for profit, but God sees the hearts of all and knows that your friend loved you.
