Fools in Heaven? Isaiah 35:8

Fools in Heaven? Isaiah 35:8

Hebrew Translation: “And a highway shall be there, and a pathway of life, and it shall be pronounced and proclaimed. The way of holiness set apart and sacred, the morally unclean shall not pass over it, but it shall be for those men who are wandering to and fro in the earth, though fools stupid and silly shall not go astray.” Comment: If you were a Jew living 700 years before Christ in Israel and read this verse from Isaiah what would you think? Maybe Isaiah should be sawed in two as King Manasseh did! To the Jews keeping the law was essential for salvation! Moses gave them the law from God! The problem was no one could keep the law! Not even Moses! So the Jews must have asked who is going to provide this pathway to life? If not the law then who? No human could do this! Who is going to proclaim this pathway to life? Surely keeping the law is the pathway to holiness! How could this pathway be established for wayfaring men wandering to and fro in the earth? How could this pathway be made for fools? God could not be talking about the gentiles? Gentiles are for the firewood of Hell. Gentiles are unclean! How can God make a way for them and include us? They do not keep our laws! When Jesus arrived in Bethlehem 700 years later it was even more perplexing for them! A Jew one of us born as God into humanity to establish this pathway? Certainly he must be a sinner just like us? Crucify Him! Now He has become a sacrifice for us? How did we do this? Jesus has power over death, hell and the grave! He raises the dead! The blind see! Is this the pathway Isaiah was talking about? If not Him who else could it be? James and Hamsa Sasse. GodWhoisGod.com
