In Isaiah Decoded, Gileadi identifies seven levels (or categories) as rungs on a ladder ascending toward God, who sits at the top. Each of the levels or rungs represents a set of spiritual characteristics, and the idea is that people ascend or descend as they attain these characteristics and gain either salvation or damnation. So true salvation, and ultimately exaltation, results when people repent of their sins, perfect themselves, and ascend to heaven, or the reverse: continue in their sins and rebellion and descend toward hell. Gileadi's levels are as follows:
Whenever I hear people praise Gileadi, they gush about his Hebrew scholarship and literary discoveries, but I found zero evidence of that in the book.
