II Kings 24:3 Surely at the commandment of the LORD came this upon Judah, to remove them out of his sight, for the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he did;God sent other countries against Judah. His people could not just live like they wanted. The leadership should have realized that they were God’s people, God’s special nation. They did not. They disobeyed Him. Now God is come against this country. He sends their enemies to destroy them. They have sinned and their sins have consequences. This is not about an individual but a nation. So the application is not to you personally but to your country. God deals harshly with His nation if they refuse to follow and obey Him.
