OUR HARDWOOD LOG CALL r bulk By thousand ! : "SS SINCE.1952:: A column by Rev. Bobby Thornhill, Pastor Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "The joy of our heart has ceased; our dance has turned into mourn- ing. The crown has fall- en from our head. Woe to us, for we have sinned!" Lamentations 5:15-16 (NKJV) Jeremiah speaks here concerning the fall and de- struction of Jerusalem at the hand of Nebuzaradan, the Capitan of Nebuchad- nezzar's army. After years of pleading with the Is- raelite leaders to surren- der as God commanded so that their city and their lives might be spared; the unimaginable has become reality, Jerusalem is de- stroyed, it's people taken to Babylon as slaves of the Chaldeans. The words of Jeremiah have proven to be not his own, but as he declared so often for 40 odd years, "thus says the Lord." The leaders of God's people had rejected God's word for so long that the unthink- able was now upon them and Jerusalem is no longer a great city and they are no longer a great nation. The days of their important status in the world is over; their kings are dead and gone and it would be gen- erations before they would again rebuild and inhabit the once great city. A trag- edy has befallen God's cho- sen people; might we who live in this modern day also hear and harken to Jeremiah's words so that a similar tragedy not be ours to bear? Remember; they dJd not think it possible either that a pagan na- tion could destroy their cit- ies and entire nation. In a sense they were right; the Chaldean's were only the tip of the spear that God used to bring about His judgment on a disobedient people.
