The Prophet Isaiah

Uttered some of the most comprehensive and glorious of all the statements of this doctrine ever framed by human lips or pen.

He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord God will wipe away tears from off all faces. Isa. 25: 8.

If we have any doubt whether this teaches universal deliverance from death and sorrow, in other words, whether the prophet inculcates universal life, and happiness, we have but to turn to 1 Cor. 15, where Paul quotes it, and applies it to the final resurrection, so that if Paul has not made a mistake, Isaiah, in this language teaches the restitution of all things to God.
