Question: Can you explain the key messages of the Book of Isaiah to humanity?
Answer: As both a prophecy and a theology, the Book of Isaiah deals with (1) a worldwide endtime scenario called the “Day of Jehovah,” which features God’s servant who prepares the way among God’s people for Jehovah’s coming to reign on the earth; and (2) world conquest by an archtyrant who commits global genocide. Isaiah’s theology teaches ascent on a ladder to heaven that consists of seven spiritual levels. Ascent results in spiritual rebirth or re-creation of the individual to higher states of blessedness while descent results in de-creation of the individual or his spiritual degradation to a cursed condition.
