The Bible appears to be equating every house being shut up to the great tribulation. Time when God forsook the church and allowed the wicked in the body to SHUT the door in that they held the elect captive. But at the revelation of Christ, God opened the door/gates (Christ) to bring back their captivity; elect coming out of Babylon.
