Your prophets have seen for you false and deceptive visions; they have not uncovered your iniquity, to bring back your captives, but have envisioned for you false prophecies and delusions.
All who pass by clap their hands at you; they hiss and shake their heads at the daughter of Jerusalem: “Is this the city that is called ‘The perfection of beauty, the joy of the whole earth’?”
All your enemies have opened their mouth against you; they hiss and gnash their teeth. They say, “We have swallowed her up! Surely this is the day we have waited for; we have found it, we have seen it!”
The LORD has done what He purposed; He has fulfilled His word which He commanded in days of old. He has thrown down and has not pitied, and He has caused an enemy to rejoice over you; He has exalted the horn of your adversaries. Lamentations 2:14-17 (NKJV)
The enemy had overcome the people of Jerusalem and defeated her. They then rejoiced over her.
If the Christian is not careful to maintain a proper walk, and relationship with the LORD we too can be overcome. Then, the enemy will mock, and enter the places of our worship and boast against us, and our Lord.
Let us continue in the word of the Lord and prayer if we are doing so, and never slack from it. If we are not in the word of God and prayer, loving the Lord, then let us get to it. Our freedoms depend on it.
