Conclusion to Jeremiah
The Lamentations of Jeremiah

October 14, 2007
Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition,
upon whom the ends of the world are come.
I Corinthians 10:11
For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning,
that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Romans 15:4

"Ensamples" from whom to learn, not "examples" for us to follow!

Conclusion to Jeremiah

(Today's written online notes for SS are partly from Haleys Handbook - the oral portion of the class will be taken from these notes in 'free comment' form (my few written comments are in blue).  Yes, I am aware that Haley's Handbook has some errors in it - specifically often a different version of the Bible is used on the online book - and their detailed history of the Bible itself is wrong but the historical OT facts help me greatly to understand all the different reigns, battles, etc. of Biblical history!)

Prophecy in the OT proves the truth and accuracy of the King James Bible - it will right the wrong facts in the history in our school textbooks, etc.

Conclusion to Jeremiah

Jeremiah 46. Egypt Jeremiah 47. The Philistines Jeremiah 48. Moab Jeremiah 49. Ammon, Edom, Syria, Hazor, Elam Jeremiah 50–51. Prediction of the Fall of Babylon Jeremiah 52. Captivity of Judah

Lamentations of Jeremiah

 A Lament over the Desolation of Jerusalem

 It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
The LORD is good unto them that wait for him,
to the soul that seeketh him.
It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait
for the salvation of the LORD.
 Lamentations 3:22–23, 25–26

This short book is Jeremiah’s lament over the city he had done his best to save Jerusalem. Yet, in his sorrow he also expresses his true and proven hope that Jerusalem will rise again from its ruins (Lamentations 3:21, 31–32). Jerusalem did indeed rise and gave its name to the capital of a redeemed world of eternal glory, the New Jerusalem (Hebrews 12:22; Revelation 21:2).

As we read about the desolation of Jerusalem, consider the attack and 'near' desolation

An Acrostic

Chapter Overview

It is not easy to define the subject of each chapter. The same ideas, in different wording, run through all the chapters: the horrors of the siege and the desolate ruins, all due to Zion’s sins. Jeremiah, stunned, dazed, and heartbroken, weeps with inconsolable grief.

Lamentations 1. Zion Desolate

Lamentations 2. God's Anger Lamentations 3. Jeremiah’s Grief  - "I am their Musick." Lamentations 4–5. Sufferings of the Siege

No Lesson Learned!
The next time folks will see consequences like Jeremiah saw will be the Tribulation
and that won't come until AFTER the rapture!

So we won't see what Jeremiah saw - at least not from down here!
Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
Romans 5:9
