So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the west, and His glory from the rising of the sun; when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. (Isa 59:19 NKJV)
In the New King James Version, the word STANDARD represents a force, like a narrow flood, that flows with great speed and force, and carries away everything before it. By the word of the Lord and by His power, the attack of the enemy shall be broken.
Here’s the same Scripture from two other versions of the Bible.
From the west, people will fear the name of the Lord, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory. (Isa 59:19 NIV)
So they shall fear the name of the Lord from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun; for he will come like a rushing stream, which the wind of the Lord drives. (Isa 59:19 ESV)
The Lord’s power shall come like a rushing stream driven along by the wind of the Lord. The WIND OF THE LORD signifies the power and might of the Holy Spirit. This word image allows us to image the majestic power and authority of our God. He is worthy of all praise!
How appropriate is the passage in Jeremiah:
There is none like you, O Lord; you are great, and your name is great in might. 7 Who would not fear you, O King of the nations? For this is your due; for among all the wise ones of the nations and in all their kingdoms there is none like you. (Jer 10:6-7 ESV)
Whenever the Lord drives the enemy to flight as described in the verses above, it will trigger a wave of humanity glorifying God and giving Him thanks, praise and honor.
If your church, community or family comes under an unprecedented campaign against you, meditate upon Isaiah 59:19 and ask the Lord to bring it to pass in your situation.
