Comments for Lamentations 1:1

Bob K's comment on 2015-04-18 10:55:13:

If you go through the book of Lamentations line by line, word by word, you 'll see that God 's spiritual temple, those people of God, are completely shattered. No people have ever been punished more than those who are discussed in the book. Their falling away was a spiritual disaster of astonished proportion. Still, the central theme of this book is an expression of hope-a people waiting for God 's "perfection of beauty. " The light in all of that black, black darkness is that God is getting His people ready for a marriage! He will do everything He can to bring them into His Family.
