Discussion for Isaiah 11:8

  • Gary on Isaiah 11:8
    Do babies and toddlers who die go to heaven? This verse says a clear "yes " - they go as happy babies totally safe and playing for eternity. This description is of a world that has not existed since the Garden of Eden - is it not limited therefore only to being a description of the world after Jesus returns in power?! Praise God!
