    What was meant in Isaiah 26:20?

    Isaiah 26 NIV

    19 But your dead will live, Lord;
    their bodies will rise—
    let those who dwell in the dust
    wake up and shout for joy—
    your dew is like the dew of the morning;
    the earth will give birth to her dead.

    20 Go, my people, enter your rooms
    and shut the doors behind you;
    hide yourselves for a little while
    until his wrath has passed by.

    21 See, the Lord is coming out of his dwelling
    to punish the people of the earth for their sins.
    The earth will disclose the blood shed on it;
    the earth will conceal its slain no longer.

    First The Lord reminds us in verse 19 that we do not need to fear natural death. For it is not eternal death, but those who trust in Him will have eternal life.

    In 21 The Lord says He will bring judgment on the world for it’s sinful ways; BUT He says in verse 20 that His people do not need to fear this judgement. But we are also not to mock this judgement but we are to hide ourselves in our rooms until it has passed.

    We have seen many mock this pandemic and then many of them have been judged by the very thing they mocked. We are not to fear but we are to be humble and to take precautions to protect ourselves from it. It is not good to mock God.
