Discussion for Lamentations 5

  • A disciple
    We read these very dreadful words, and can't help but think of the doom of our own Country because of apostasy and sin, and so much innocent blood! Jeremiah 25 speaks about these things. What is most tragic, is how that most are too hardened and indifferent to the things of God, and so, to their own eternal welfare; that they will never benefit from the Spirit's words through the Prophets.

    Well let's not forget not to judge person for what they eat, drink or how they keep their Sabbath days. Prayer is most powerful and speak everything in love we all get deceived but God will guide Xavier. He did it for Paul and us.

    We should not look at these verses as anything but what they are; A Lamentation. It says in Moses how that after ages and generations of sinning and defiance; if one finally come to himself and repent, and accept the punishment of his sins, and the sins of his ancestors; that God would then accept him: (Lev. 26). We too have to accept God's judgment against our whole history, in the things coming.
