Renungan harian alkitab; 2 Chronicles 32, selasa; ” repent and forgiveness from God, pertobatan  dan pengampunan Tuhan.

2 Chronicles 33:9-14 (NKJV)  So Manasseh seduced Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to do more evil than the nations whom the Lord had destroyed before the children of Israel.

And the Lord spoke to Manasseh and his people, but they would not listen.

Therefore the Lord brought upon them the captains of the army of the king of Assyria, who took Manasseh with hooks, bound him with bronze fetters, and carried him off to Babylon.

Now when he was in affliction, he implored the Lord his God, and humbled himself greatly before the God of his fathers,

and prayed to Him; and He received his entreaty, heard his supplication, and brought him back to Jerusalem into his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord was God.

After this he built a wall outside the City of David on the west side of Gihon, in the valley, as far as the entrance of the Fish Gate; and it enclosed Ophel, and he raised it to a very great height. Then he put military captains in all the fortified cities of Judah.

Pemberontakan yang dilakukan raja Manaseh, adalah sangat keterlaluan, dikatakan sangat jahat bahkan dari raja – raja sebelumnya, semua hal hal yang menyakitkan hati Tuhan ia lakukan, hingga pengorban anak anak kedalam api untuk dipersembahkan kepada Iblis, ia lakukan! Sungguh jahat!.

Seharusnya Manaseh dikutuk dan dihukum sangat berat dan dicabut nyawanya serta dilempar kedalam api neraka!

Tapi Tuhan kita sungguh maha pengasih dan penyayang, ia Tuhan yang maha pengampun, ketika Manassh bertobat , merendahkan diri kepada Tuhan, dan berbalik kembali kepada jalan Tuhan, maka Tuhan mengampuninya.

Para pembaca terkasih, Tuhan tidak ingin kita  binasa, seberapa beratnya pelanggaran dan dosa kita, asalkan kita mau bertobat, dan rendah hati kembali kepada Tuhan, pengampunan akan diberikan Tuhan, sungguh Tuhan kita luar biasa, maha pengasih, penyanyang dan maha pengampun, ada jaminan bagi setiap orang yang bertobat sungguh sungguh akan di ampuni.
