House That Isaiah Built

Isaiah sign

NO, you are not in Candyland, but would you believe Niagara Falls NY — it's this is not one of the tourist attractions, although neighbors might feel differently.

Its owner, Isaiah Henry Robertson, a native of Jamaica and former home-builder, would buy houses cheap, renovate, then sell them for a profit. (A practice called flipping.) Things changed one day when he claims that God told him that he was in Niagara Falls for a reason, and it's where the world will end in 2014. And, he said that God guided him to become a prophet, guiding Robertson to transform a run down Niagara Falls house into a showplace. Its purpose was to catch people's attention so they could be saved. This home definitely does that.

Robertson complied and the house, which he lives in, is a technicolor attraction which he maintains by continually repainting the multi-denominational religious symbols — doves, trumpets, crescents, multi-pointed stars and LOTS of wheels.

At the back of the driveway is a 25-foot kaleidoscopic cross, loaded with hundreds of multi-colored wooden wheels, which Robertson claims represent God. There's more symbolism — a rock and anchor out by the sidewalk that represent the Empty Tomb of Christ.

Many people drive by the home, snap a fast photo and drive off, ourselves included. We were on our way to the train station and spotted the home. Reportedly, its owner welcomes visitors, whether church-going or not; being short on time, we didn't stop to ring the doorbell.

It's not TOO late, if you want to get information and are in the area sometime before Doomsday 2014 (unsure WHAT date). Just take a drive down Ontario Avenue in Niagara Falls, NY. — You can't this house (trust me).

No man knows the day or the hour, not even the son of God knows states the bible. But with all the prophecies fulfilled in the bible that show the coming of man (Jesus) is near; we who believe and trust in the Lord, pray it will be soon. As for me, today would be wonderful~
Doubt this house would be allowed with the HOA in our subdivision. Someone has tried to paint theirs orange (the house is red brick)… they were stopped by the HOA and there is sits… one side painted orange; Not sure what will happen? This is one reason I am glad for the Association as they will keep this from happening. Our old neighborhood someone did paint their brick house orange with green shutters and door, we all called it the “Pumpkin House”.

I am soooo very happy that house is not across the street from us. and thankful that we live in city limits that would not allow him to do this. people can't even put up more than one forsale sign on their property here...

Couldn't miss it! Lots of people try to predict - but only "God" knows.

So true, Mona.

We're thankful too, Sandra, as we are having a hard enough time trying to sell our home without any distractions.

Wow! I'm glad he isn't my neighbor! This house is something we haven't seen in Niagara Falls.

Thanks for the heads up, but prefer not to be shared on FB in the future.

I would have to stop and take a look at that house; would be fascinating to see it in person. Well, we'll see if he is right and the world will end in 2014; a prophet is only true if what he prophecies comes to be, but I'm going with the fact only God knows when its going to happen, so I'l pretty sure it won't be in 2014 on the day this man may say :)
