Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 59:19


59:19 Fear - Worship the Lord. The west - The western part of the world. His glory - The glorious God. The rising of the sun - The eastern parts. When - At what time soever the devil, or his instruments shall make violent irruptions upon the church. A standard - God shall make known himself to take their part and defend them, by his spirit alone.

    Verse 21: The divine teaching and truths that we receive from Jehovah God will never depart from his servants mouths.

    Verse 21 is saying that the children of Israel (Deuteronomy 28:68) that agreed with the holy covenant are his seed forevermore. They transgressed his laws and despised his judgments therefore they suffered greatly for it (trans Atlantic Slave Trade). Ezekiel 37 reveals their sleep state and how they will begin to wake up and clothe themselves with the garments of righteousness such as Sabbath Day

    V. 19 and Ch. 62:10 - "............the Lord shall lift up a standard against him"; The 'standard' is the word of God, and it will be done in his spirit - which is in his people. "............without me ye can do NOTHING."
