Discussion for Lamentations 1

  • Michael C.
    This cup of wrath and desolation and sorrow, shall all nations drink. For if "I AM" has done so to His own people, who are called by His Name, because of their hatred and hostility, for their continually provoking Him with their sins and idols and incurable lawlessness; who are the nations of the world, that they think it shall not come to them? Still they say, Who is the LORD, that I should obey?

    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.
