Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

May 3 - Evening

"The Lord spoke to Manasseh and his people, but they paid no attention. So the Lord brought against them the army commanders of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh prisoner, put a hook in his nose, bound him with bronze shackles and took him to Babylon. In his distress he sought the favor of the Lord his God and humbled himself greatly before the God of his ancestors. And when he prayed to him, the Lord was moved by his entreaty and listened to his plea; so he brought him back to Jerusalem and to his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord is God.

Afterward he rebuilt the outer wall of the City of David, west of the Gihon spring in the valley, as far as the entrance of the Fish Gate and encircling the hill of Ophel; he also made it much higher. He stationed military commanders in all the fortified cities in Judah.

He got rid of the foreign gods and removed the image from the temple of the Lord, as well as all the altars he had built on the temple hill and in Jerusalem; and he threw them out of the city. Then he restored the altar of the Lord and sacrificed fellowship offerings and thank offerings on it, and told Judah to serve the Lord, the God of Israel. The people, however, continued to sacrifice at the high places, but only to the Lord their God."

- Second Chronicles 33:10-17

Manasseh Repents in Babylonian Prison and Returns to Restore Jerusalem    

While in prison Manasseh repented before the Lord and the Lord restored Manasseh to his throne in Jerusalem. For the remaining six years of his life Manasseh got rid of the foreign gods and removed the images from the temple. He restored the temple and temple services and told the people of Judah to seek the Lord.

Besides seeking the Lord and leading the people back to God, Manasseh also was concerned about national defense. Manasseh had lost his desire to cooperate with the evil world powers. He no longer sought to compromise with the forces of darkness once he returned from captivity. He returned to his throne concerned with fortifying the cities of Judah and rebuilding the defensive walls of Jerusalem because he had seen and experienced the wicked and evil forces that now threatened his people.

The people did not listen. Manasseh’s son Amon would have a short, evil reign for two years but this would be followed by Josiah who took the throne at the age of eight. Josiah would have been born the year his grandfather Manasseh returned from his Babylonian prison. Josiah’s first six years of his life would have been lived during King Manasseh’s six years as a believer who was trying to restore the proper worship of the Lord. It is very likely that the godly King Manasseh in his final six years of his life influenced his young grandson Josaih in the ways of righteousness. And, when Josiah became king he would lead the whole nation in that same path of righteousness.

  Christian Quote from Church History

“I am profoundly convinced that the historic revelation of God in Jesus of Nazareth must be the cornerstone of any faith that is really Christian. Any historical question about the real Jesus who lived in Palestine nineteen centuries ago is therefore fundamentally important.” – Montgomery

Something to Ponder??

The book of 1 Chronicles begins by listing around 2,000 names. Obviously, this was important information that connected the contemporary Jewish people of 530 BC with their past and their national heritage.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information

Do I recognize God's influence on others through me?
My righteous actions, gracious words and life filled with hope are simple single seeds that can grow to a bountiful harvest in another person’s life.
Especially in the life of a child.
I will offer children righteousness, grace, hope and love that I have received through Jesus Christ.

his rebuke,
