“Q. Re: Isaiah 24. To whom is the prophet referring and what time frame (s)? Is it Israel and the dispersion? Is it the last days of the tribulation? Is it the end of Christ’s millennial reign just before time passes away and eternity begins?
A. Most of Isaiah 24 is a summary of how the judgments of the end times will impact the Earth. Clues that lead us to this conclusion are in the closing verse (Isaiah 24:23). It hints of the Lord’s description of the Son and Moon in Matt. 24:29, and concludes with Him reigning in Jerusalem. The exception is Isaiah 24:14-16 which show that there will be those on Earth who will come to the Lord during that time so in various places the voices of those who give glory to the Righteous One will be heard.”
