Isaiah 33 puts on the lips of the godless the question, “Who among us can dwell with the consuming fire?”  The consuming fire is God Himself.  But Isaiah’s vision sees people dwelling with God and living.   He sees people whose sins are forgiven (33:24).  Isaiah sees people who walk righteously and speak uprightly, despises the gain of extortion, shakes his hands so that a bribe being slipped into them will not be received, stops his ears and eyes from passively participating in sin.  Isaiah sees this after a vision of the exile, a type of the death of Jesus.  And since we have died with Jesus, we are a forgiven people and we are able to do as the vision Isaiah sees — to present our body parts (active like our feet and tongues and passive like our eyes and ears) to God as instruments for righteousness.
