Here are the last kings of Judah, sons of Judah’s last good king, King Josiah. All of his sons that ascended the throne after him were apostate idolaters and plunged the kingdom into God’s judgment. The prophets for millennium had been warning about the coming judgments for rejecting the God of Israel. They were not joking and subsequent history records the awful reality of their warnings and the fulfillments. The New Testament apostles and writers were not joking either about the judgments of God to come to those opposed to the Son of God.
