May I make a suggestion? I did a study on God’s judgment of Israel and Judah in regards to child sacrifice, the shedding of innocent blood, and King Manasseh. When I finished, 2 months later, the whole history of the Old Testament fell in place. My Bible is the NASV Study Bible and has the parallel times of prophets and kings in charts for most books, which helped immensely. I also used my own concordance and went through every reference, reading every chapter, sometimes the whole book. Definitely an eyeopener and I learned a lot about God and judgment...

“However, the LORD did not turn from the fierceness of His great wrath with which His anger burned against Judah, because of all the provocations with which Manasseh had provoked Him. And the LORD said, “I will remove Judah also from My sight, as I have removed Israel. And I will cast off Jerusalem, this city which I have chosen, and the temple (house) of which I said, ‘My name shall be there’.”

“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 23: 26 & 27 and 24: 3 & 4

I am a post-tribulationalist and I keep putting off my next major study of God the Avenger of the Innocent.

Have ¥you read “The Chronicles of the Kings”, by Lynn Austin? It really helped me understand those times better.
