Like a monster, death had been swallowing all of humanity, one by one – and sometimes, if a calamity occurred, in great numbers. Yet the prophet Isaiah prophesied that one day death itself would be swallowed up in victory (Isaiah 28:5). The apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15 that the time of fulfillment for Isaiah’s prophecy was approaching (verse 54). Indeed, the prophecy was fulfilled not longer after Paul died. The great swallower was itself swallowed (Out of the Eater Came Something to Eat) and the great monster of the deep was forced to disgorge its prey (The Sea Monster Had to Give Up Jonah).
The meaning of all this, of course, is that Everyone Is Going to Heaven .
The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
