The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him The church is protected by the standards the Spirit has in place The church is separate from the world different blood bought We should look different and act different These standards are what keeps us from being inundated by worldly things The enemy isn t coming into the church like a flood he is coming into the world like a flood The church is safe protected when we follow God s plan of holiness

In Isaiah 59 19 God is the creator and sustainer of the universe He is in control of all events in the universe And in our relationship with him He needs our worship and serve as Lord and God in our life We must not fear the devil when God is on our side It doesnot matter how angry our enemy may be the tHoly Spirit will encounter and defeat him In Christ we are well protected and the enemy can do us no harm

Let scripture interpret scripture do not try and put your own interpretation in Read Revelation 12 15 and you will see the devil does use a flood Study the meaning of raising up a standard and you will find the power of God in the Standard He raises against the enemy when the enemy comes in like a flood as in Revelations

When the enemy shall come in like a flood: that's what it means look up the word flood ( flood-an overflowing of water onto land that is normally dry) a flood causes destructions and destroys can be overwhelming ( the enemy is out to steal kill and destroy)

When the enemy shall come in.....Like a FLOOD the Spirit of the Lord will raise up a standard against him. The Lord says how He washes us clean. The Prayer of Jabez : KEEP us from evil. The Lord's Prayer: AND deliver us from evil.

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. Explain this
