When - At what time soever the devil, or his instruments shall make violent irruptions upon the church.

The Lord allowed Isaiah 59:19 to read the way it does so that it reaches us unadulterated . I believe fear will grip the west and the east after seeing how the ferocious devil is defeated .

i think its okay when it says,when the enemy comes in like a flood,the Spirit of the Lord shall rise the standard.it basically means that when the enemy comes furiously with the intention of hurting or destroying you, God Himself will raise the wall that will stop them.

I agree with Adewele Adeyi... The scripture should read."When the enemy comes, like a flood God shall raise a standard against him.

this scripture it like as its written,the standard is An emblem or flag of an army, raised on a pole to indicate the rallying point in battle, so basicly when God talking about devel coming like a flood he means that when the enemy attack he will raise the flag of victory over him which is the blood of the most high and precious lamp of God who died in our place as a sign of victory aand win. so when ever devel attack God will make it known to him that the firt battle was won by Jesus which was the cross d the dish full of our sin Jesus drank, therefore we also going to win,so there is no battle that can defeat us because God will always raises the standard

Isaiah 59: 19 says, “So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” Many people do not understand this Scripture because they do not read it correctly. It is the Spirit of the Lord that shall rise like a flood, not the enemy. People usually say, “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.” But the original version says, “When the enemy shall come in, like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall raise up a standard against him.” That is our working verse in this message.
