Discussion for Lamentations 1

  • A disciple
    "Is it nothing to you, all ye that pass by? behold, and see if there be any sorrow like unto my sorrow, which is done unto me, wherewith the LORD hath afflicted me in the day of his fierce anger." Like the women along the way out to the crucifixion weeping and bewailing Jesus, many only see the outrageous disaster of evil that came upon the Lord; but we must see its meaning to us and our children!
  • A disciple
    Remember how the Lord Jesus submitted to the authority of the priests and the Sanhedrin; and so also when they delivered Him up to the Gentiles; (which they were subject to); He submitted to the sentence that they gave upon Him? "Now is the Son of man delivered into the hands of sinners;" and now are we also to walk in His steps of submission to the powers that be, for they are appointed by God.
  • A disciple
    ".. the kingdom and dominion of the house of David was taken from them, and now the Nations of the Gentiles were given it instead, until the end." We are given light and grace and the Holy Spirit to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. We are entrusted with the Announced Glad Tidings of Christ in order to save men's lives, not to destroy them by sin's scandals and worldly lives.
  • A disciple
    Nobody realizes; and is certainly not preached or taught ANYWHERE; about what all happened and how significant was the destruction and carrying away captive of Judah and Jerusalem. Because of their incurable and unendurable defiance and sin against the LORD, the kingdom and dominion of the house of David was taken from them, and now the Nations of the Gentiles were given it instead, until the end.

    Vs. 21-22 - ".....thou wilt bring the day that thou hast called,........"; v. 22 - ".....and do unto them as thou hast done unto me for all my transgressions:.....; Chap. 3: 21-24. God is our judge, but during this time of Grace (N.T.) He is merciful and patient : as long as He tarries, of which time to come no man knoweth; now is the day of salvation. He woke me up 21/2 yrs. ago - after 34 yrs
  • 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?
