    Lamentations historically refers to the destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar, but prophetically it is a perfect picture of the Great Tribulation (like Job). The events of Lamentation will take place again in the future.(Rev.11:1-3) and (Zech 14:1-2 ).

    I think it is warning for the surviving generation to stay in league with God and not disobey Him. Lamentations chapter 1 we see a people suffering because they broke covenant with God and are being punished as a result.

    The word of God is true, and i love it.
  • 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.

    Lamentations was a warning to ancient Judah that it had reached the point of no return. What happened to Judah is only a type of what is prophesied to happen in this end time. It seems like we have reached the point of no return.
