Discussion for Isaiah 35:5

  • Margaret Mead for verse 5
    I used to sing this in a song in the Salvation Army from when I was a child. I had always thought that this was a literal prophetic word. That healing of body, mind and spirit would happen on the Day of Redemption whenever that might be . I still think that, but now I also have a different angle on this scripture, and can see how it was a prophetic word for the day when the Messiah would come and save His people from their sins and heal their hearts and minds, infusing joy. I thank God for giving me this new insight. I think it also refers to Heaven, though, as "only the redeemed will walk there".. and will "enter Zion with singing"! Even those who are tone deaf will sing. Glorious thought.
