Considering the prophet Isaah:

instead of concerning ourselves with exact scripture, how does a sign get interpreted into the future of the/a prophesy? I am not making presumptions here, but everybody is agreed (if they're at this site that prophets do exist, or at least messengers exist concerning attitudes people of different spatial locality) that for the existing materialism of the World messages exist passed by messengers. For example, there was Herodotus in ancient Greece who travelled extensively in the middle east. Today the AL-qaeda travelled in the middle east; then Isaah, after, more or less, (according to the right, as these mercenaries are) the house of David crumbled in Israel, prophesied of such journeys for messages about other interesting parts where the Lord (for the lack of a better term) had solutions to the Bronze age turning into the Iron age.

Was Isaah a prophet for further wishing of promises, or a prophet for the actually fulfilled signs of the temporal completed ? It is not a symbolic excursion of the literature of the times then, but a realization of communication with living presence of peoples in the region (like Bush said). Much was written in those period of humanly communicated history, and hence without doubt it is a real writing of historical tends and ideas in the fashion of the Greek God Hermes. Of course I am blind now. LOL. Besides Hermes there was the constant referring to the off-springs of Abraham, Iahmael and Isaac. Our understanding, recollects then for the events understood commonly then, and importantly to many this is an archaeological exercise. Some, like I do, just mean the rationalizing of the history of Time unfolding metaphysically for good willed projects of tasks which never are sufficiently possessed to the Consciousness, "mankind's Task", which remains the un-decyphered in the divided object for the consciously apprehended language and proprietous matter of contingent counter-Promise. That remains hypothesis in the future, according to Hegel for the past.

Promises, wishes or prophecies?

Actually, what we see printed in the Bible as the Book of Isaiah is actually three shorter works that have been stitched together--and they present all three: promises, wishes AND prophecies.

And this is possible because they were written by three different people at three different times. The oldest (written by the person we think of as Isaiah) was written before the Exile. The two later sections came afterward. So they approach the theme from different perspectives.

It's important to understand this before declaiming on Isaiah's message.
