Now this is what I call the ultimate Liberation Theology…
Isa 26:17 Like as a woman with child, that draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain and crieth out in her pangs; so have we been at Thy presence, O LORD.
Isa 26:18 We have been with child, we have been in pain, we have as it were brought forth wind; we have not wrought any deliverance in the land; neither are the inhabitants of the world come to life.
Isa 26:19 Thy dead shall live, my dead bodies shall arise – awake and sing, ye that dwell in the dust – for Thy dew is as the dew of light, and the earth shall bring to life the shades.
Isa 26:20 Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee; hide thyself for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.
enter … chambers — When God is about to take vengeance on the ungodly, the saints shall be shut in by Him in a place of safety, as Noah and his family were in the days of the flood (Gen_7:16), and as Israel was commanded not to go out of doors on the night of the slaying of the Egyptian first-born (Exo_12:22, Exo_12:23; Psa_31:20; Psa_83:3). The saints are calmly and confidently to await the issue (Exo_14:13, Exo_14:14).
