Beginnings of Captivity

In the time of Pekah king of Israel, Tiglath-Pileser king of Assyria came and took Ijon, Abel Beth Maakah, Janoah, Kedesh and Hazor. He took Gilead and Galilee, including all the land of Naphtali, and deported the people to Assyria. 2 Kings 15:29

God has given many warnings that Israel will fall into Assyrian captivity. Here, we see the prophetic words are starting to come true. It will be several more years before Israel collapses totally, but make no mistake, unless the people repent, God’s judgment as spoken by the prophets is near. Alas, there is no repentance coming.
