Who Will Escape?

Isaiah 33:13-14. “Hear, ye that are far off, what I have done; and, ye that are near, acknowledge My might. The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings?”

People everywhere are commanded to hear and acknowledge God’s acts and power. The passage goes on to name the classes of people to be punished by God:  Sinners in Zion, who are afraid; hypocrites who are surprised with fear of everlasting fire.

Then the question:  Who is going to be able to escape the wrath of God?   The time of reckoning  draws near, and all who have held themselves as above reproach, above sin and its results, above God Himself, will realize that there is no escape for them.

The next few verses will tell us who will escape, though. God always leaves the door of hope open.
