Prophet Isaiah Robertson (cross and surrounding symbols)

Prophet Isaiah refers to his 25 foot cross as a “healing cross,” and he uses olive oil to salve and heal at its base. He believes that the cross imparts its message of redemption, ‘speaking’ to all visitors. A “talking cross,” he anticipates that visitors from all over the world will come to hear its message and be saved. An inspiration for his entire site, Prophet Isaiah quotes Prophet Joel: “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions.”
