It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1

Manasseh was the grandson of Ahaz(the king who lacked faith in GOD and would not listen to Isaiah) and the son of Hezekiah. Manasseh is know in scripture to be the most wicked king. Interestingly enough however even though Manasseh did much evil in the sight of the LORD to provoke HIM to anger, GOD was merciful and offered Manasseh forgiveness (2 Chronicles 33:10-13)but he would not listen so the LORD sent the captains of the army and hooked him and bound him with bronze fetters and carried him off to Babylon. When he was in affliction he called to the LORD and humbled himself greatly and prayed to GOD. The LORD heard his prayers and took him back to Jerusalem to his kingdom and the he knew that the LORD was GOD.

An example that GOD will take the least likely!

Often times like Manasseh we must first hit rock bottom before we look up! Do you recognize your captivity in order to avoid being hooked by the enemy? Are you crying out to HIM to reveal the yokes that bond you? Do you repent for your sins?

In order to experience freedom we must repent.
