“Your dead will come back to life; your corpses will rise up. Wake up and shout joyfully, you who live in the ground! For you will grow like plants drenched with the morning dew, and the earth will bring forth its dead spirits. Go, my people! Enter your inner rooms! Close your doors behind you! Hide for a little while, until his angry judgment is over. For look, the LORD is coming out of the place where he lives, to punish the sin of those who live on the earth. The earth will display the blood shed on it; it will no longer cover up its slain. At that time the LORD will punish with his destructive, great, and powerful sword Leviathan the fast-moving serpent, Leviathan the squirming serpent; he will kill the sea monster.” (Isa 26:19–27:1)
Isaiah’s passage reveals the following sequence of events:
First, the resurrection takes place.
Second, God’s people are taken to the “inner rooms” to be protected (cf. John 14:1–3, Rev 7:9–17, 21:2–3, 9–27).
Third, the Lord comes out of his place to punish the wicked during the eschatological wrath.
Fourth, Leviathan/Antichrist is destroyed (cf. Rev 19:20).
