Isaiah 26 - Safe in the risen Savior

Safe in the risen Savior

Isa 26:19 Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead.

Who else but Messiah Jesus the living Son of God, could speak this message? People of the law do not see Messiah as dying, nor how could God die? God coming in a human did come and he did die, to be the atonement for our sins. So many law cults teach keeping laws without grace and the coming of Jesus the Messiah as God the son. They do not accept him as God, because he was flesh. God in flesh, came to shed blood, legally paying the requirement for sin. Those who died in faith shall rise as he is risen and live with him forever.

Isa 26:20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
Isa 26:21 For, behold, the LORD cometh out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.

Speaking of those going through the time of tribulation, when satan controls the world's leader and turns his wrath on God's covenant people. Come my people, the Israel of God and hide yourself for a time, in your hiding place, until the indignation be past. The indignation God's people are hidden from is from the LORD Himself: the LORD comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity. They are safe from his wrath, for it is against the evil of the world.

Mat 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Mat 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Mat 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

The stars that fall and the powers shaken are the gathering up of fallen angels and the devil to be bound during the millenium, until the end. Those who trust in Messiah shall be gathered together to be with him as he reigns on earth for a thousand years. The Jehovah's witnesses do not see beyond this, but we shall continue with the Son of God forever in the Father's dwelling place.

John 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
John 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
