Slide 1

Manasseh was the son of King Hezekiah and was only 12 years old when he was crowned King of Judah. – Slide 1

Slide 2

His father Hezekiah loved God. When Hezekiah had been ill and dying God had healed him and extended his life by 15 years. Once Manasseh was 12 years old, Hezekiah reigned together with his young son to train him to become a good ruler. – Slide 2

Slide 3

Manasseh knew that when the Assyrians had besieged the city of Jerusalem, his father Hezekiah had prayed to God for help. And God had delivered them from their enemies. He also knew that his father had cleansed the Temple and the land of idols and encouraged everyone to trust in God alone. – Slide 3

Slide 4

Manasseh was 22 years old when his father Hezekiah died. He was now free to rule as he wanted. – Slide 4

Slide 5

Instead of obeying God or listening to the warnings of the prophet Isaiah, Manasseh rebelled. – Slide 5

Slide 6

He encouraged people to rebuild the altars to false gods that his father had destroyed. These altars appeared on the high places throughout the land. – Slide 6

Slide 7

Manasseh then built idols to the god Baal and encouraged false worship. – Slide 7

Slide 8

Despite the fact that God had forbidden His people to worship other gods, Manasseh built an idol to worship the goddess Asherah as wicked King Ahab and his evil wife Jezebel had done. – Slide 8

Slide 9

Manasseh went from bad to worse, even putting altars to false gods in the Temple in Jerusalem – the very place God said His Name would be forever. The King encouraged people to worship the planets and stars. Again, this was something God had forbidden. – Slide 9

Slide 10

Manasseh’s wickedness increased as embraced forbidden occult practices. He sought advice from sorcerers, astrologers and mediums. He sacrificed his sons. The King filled Jerusalem with ‘innocent blood’ as he murdered those who stood in his way. He became the most evil King of Judea. – Slide 10

Slide 11

The Lord warned Manasseh and the people of Judah but they refused to listen. So God acted in judgement and brought the army commanders of the King of Assyrian to invade the land. – Slide 11

Slide 12

They captured Manasseh and put him in chains. – Slide 12

Slide 13

The Assyrians put a hook through Manasseh’s nose and led him away all the way to Assyria. – Slide 13

Slide 14

The King of Assyria was also governor of Babylon and Manesseh was taken to this city – known for its wickedness. – Slide 14

Slide 15

Manasseh was put in prison and remained there for 12 years. He was in ‘great distress’. – Slide 15

Slide 16

Prisoner Manasseh humbled himself before God and pleaded for forgiveness and help. Few would think he deserved it. God not only listened to his plea but was moved by it. God’s love and forgiveness is shown to anyone who truly repents, even to those who have done the most terrible things. – Slide 16

Slide 17

God answered Manasseh’s prayer. The King of Assyria decided to restore him to be King of Judah once more. – Slide 17

Slide 18

Once back in Jerusalem, Manasseh set about living to obey God. He got rid of the idols on the high places throughout the land. – Slide 18

Slide 19

The altars to false gods in the temple and city were pulled down and removed from the city. – Slide 19

Slide 20

The temple was cleared of idols and objects that God had forbidden. – Slide 20

Slide 21

King Manasseh restored the altar to God in the Temple and made sacrifices and peace offerings on it. – Slide 21

Slide 22

The King them told the people to serve God. He had misled them and set a very bad example, but now he urged them to repent and turn back to God as he had done. – Slide 22
