What does Isaiah 24:12 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Isaiah 24:12

In the city is left desolation
And nothing else, palaces, houses, and temples burnt, and inhabitants destroyed; none but devils, foul spirits, and hateful and unclean birds, inhabiting it, ( Revelation 18:2 Revelation 18:8 ) : and the gate is smitten with destruction;
or "gates", the singular for the plural; none passing and repassing through them, as formerly, and themselves utterly destroyed. This, according to Kimchi, shall be in the days of the Messiah, in the times of Gog and Magog.
