    When the devil lifts up opposition and all kind of circumstances, God starts at the climax of that situation and shows His power. God is always above all
  • Wisdom Mwale on Isaiah 59:19
    The standard resembles the word of God which the Holy Spirit empowers us to use to overcome all the attacks of the enemy. The devil is the enemy and he does not respect the level of annointing someone has, if it were so Jesus would never have been tempted but he is always stopped by the word of God spoken by revelation unction of the Spirit of God .
  • Yvonne on Isaiah 59:19
    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
  • Faye39 on Isaiah 59:19
    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)
  • Adrienne on Isaiah 59:19
    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.
  • Stewart on Isaiah 59:19
    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 .
  • Oteng Ntlotlang on Isaiah 59:19
    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.
