Make no mistake about it: as I have said before, the rich man in the Parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man (Luke 16) represents the Jews of Judah. Judah the man, after whom the Israelite tribe was named, had five brothers, and Judah the tribe acquired great wealth, great privilege. If Mr. Sumptuous, upon dying, goes to Hell, almost all the Judah Jews of history go there as well. It isn’t enough for them to go through the Holocaust. They must also be placed in a locus of everlasting torture.
But it is hard to believe any Jew will be damned in Hell when it is declared by Isaiah that “all the descendants of Israel will find deliverance in the Lord and will make their boast in him” (Is. 45:25, NIV). The prophet who wrote Ezekiel 37 seems to confirm this—seems to be teaching the universal salvation of the Jews. The words above from Isaiah 45 follow the staggering statement about ALL people swearing what is probably allegiance to God. Saul and Jeroboam are left out of this, and will simply suffer forever?
