There is a verse in Isaiah that states when the enemy comes in like a flood that the Lord will raise up a standard against this onslaught:
When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. (Isaiah 59:19 NKJ)
However, blogger Kim Balogh believes that the comma has been put in the wrong place. She feels the verse should actually read this way:
When the enemy comes in,
like a flood the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.
With this adjustment, the verse says that the Spirit of God will raise a rushing flood (lit. rushing river) against an invading adversary.
She adds that the Hebrew word nûs (translated” lift up a standard” in the New King James) is better translated as fleeing or escaping.
Using these two adjustments, Balogh believes that the verse should read “When the enemy shall come in, like a river the Spirit of God will make him flee.”
And with the US being pummelled on every side by Covid, state governors going tyrannical and rioting led by left-wing radicals, it could be argued that the US is under a spiritual onslaught.
But people are praying and there evidence that the Holy Spirit may be starting to push back.
And this may have been demonstrated recently in Florida where worship leader Sean Feucht held another of his “Let Us Worship” meetings in Orlando and West Palm Beach.
It was pouring rain when they set up in Orlando, but God was pouring out his Holy Spirit at the same time. It had such an impact that people were running to the stage to get saved.
In an Instagram Post, Feucht wrote:
“Last night drug addicts and prostitutes off the streets were running to the altar to get saved!! The harder it rained, the more God kept pouring His Spirit out!!”
The next night, they were in West Palm Beach where the city tried to hinder the meeting by using barricades to prevent the group from using the stage at the Meyer Amphitheater.
Of course, this is not the first time this has happened. In Chicago, the city actually put up a fence around the park where Feucht originally scheduled the group’s outdoor meeting. But the group responded by turning the worship service into a worship protest (that is apparently legal in Chicago).
But the Holy Spirit showed up again in Orlando.
It seems whenever believers make an effort to get out of the church building, the Holy Spirit is moving.
A week ago, a church unrelated to Feucht’s group, Calvary Chapel Church in Chino, CA, held an outdoor service and reported baptizing nearly 1,000 people at Corona Del Mar State Beach.
