Isaiah 59:19: 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.
Isaiah 59 speaks about God’s response to the corruption and decay that was in Israel’s culture (and our culture today). In Isaiah 59, there is no truth and no justice. God looked for someone to stand in the gap but there was none. “Stand in the gap” means to intercede and plead for God’s mercy. Isaiah 59 describes a society that has been TOTALLY CORRUPTED where there is NO TRUTH, NO EQUITY, and NO JUSTICE. Because there is NO FEAR OF GOD in the land, things are not the way that they should be. Among a people (Israel) where the majority claim to “know God”, corruption and moral decay are running rampant. This is very similar to the book of Judges, where everyone is doing what is “right in their own eyes”.
In Isaiah 59, there is a FLOOD that is happening. The enemy has come in like a FLOOD🌊. The enemy has come in AGGRESSIVELY. He (Satan) has come in STRATEGICALLY and INTENTIONALLY😈.
God’s response was to LIFT UP A STANDARD🚩, that was currently missing or was existing but needed CORRECTION.
The enemy wants to REmake man in his own image – the image of the beast.😈. Ever since the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, Satan has been attempting to REmake man in his own image and likeness, setting his own twisted and perverted values up as the world’s “standard”.
In order to do this, the enemy works on the MIND to “fundamentally transform” our way of thinking. He calls evil good and good evil. He plants wrong ideas in the minds of the masses, glorifies those ideas and at the same time, demonizes the Biblical Worldview. This is the new “woke” religion, which isn’t really new. Woke VALUES are Babylonian values repackaged for a new generation.
“There is a new religion. It is moving like a tidal wave🌊 through every facet of western culture, shaping and redefining society as it goes. This religion masquerades under the guise of compassion and justice, but underneath is an evil ideology😈 that is incompatible with western values and incongruent with the Christian worldview. This movement did not start in Minneapolis on May 25th, when George Floyd was murdered. That event acted as a watershed moment for an ideology that has been growing for decades. If left unchecked, this “new religion” could lead to a complete unraveling of western culture.
There are many names for what we currently find ourselves in; wokeness, political correctness, and cancel culture are some of them, but these only encapsulate a portion of the phenomenon. Cultural Marxism, neo-marxism, social justice, identity politics, and Critical Theory are broader descriptors.
Wokeism is a religion. Although it has not been organized into any formal religious structure, it has all the functions of religious doctrine. It has a unique epistemology (theory of knowledge), an evaluation of the human condition, and a “redemption narrative”. But from where did it come?
In the early 20th century, a German school of philosophy called the Frankfurt School developed a social philosophy called Critical Theory. In a nutshell, Critical Theory critiques culture and challenges the underlying power structures of society. It is a movement to “liberate human beings from the circumstances that enslave them,” reinterpreting western culture as a story of the oppressor vs. oppressed. In Critical Theory, the only things that exist are hierarchies of power, and those hierarchies must be torn down. The goal of this movement, whether stated or not, is nothing less than the complete dismantling and rebuilding of western culture from the ground up.
The narrative of redemption that Wokeism puts forward is entirely antithetical to the Christian narrative. The biblical stories present the pattern of the individual, in relationship with God, as the primary mechanism for the redemption of the world. This pattern culminates with Christ as the perfect man and sacrifice for the sins of the world.✝️ Our belief in his finished work and submission to his Lordship is our motivation to act justly within the world. Therefore, the ideal Christian behavior is one of mercy, peace, kindness, and forgiveness. 💕
Wokeism, on the other hand, presents the redemptive pattern of various groups vying for power within an inherently oppressive system. 😈In this MARXIST vision of the world, the only thing that exists is power, and if only power exists, then power and control are necessary to tear down a “corrupt system“. In this narrative of redemption, violence is easily justified. For this reason, we have seen violent riots and not just peaceful protests sweeping America (and the world).
The elite of the world are working non-stop to tear down the current power structure (ie nation-states) so they can place THEMSELVES in power (global antichrist kingdom/NEW WORLD ORDER). They are using a number of strategies to achieve this, including fake (stolen) elections throughout the world, putting puppets who will bow to the New World Order into positions of power. (JB, current “President” of the US who has dementia and can barely complete a coherent sentence on his own)
The WOKE religion is how they gain a huge public following by introducing a FALSE REDEMPTION NARRATIVE. This false redemption narrative allows for the individual to continue in their sin without the fear of Eternal consequences. The woke people do not worship a Supreme Being. They look not to God, but to the State for the answers to life’s problems. In the woke religion, THE PROMISED LAND IS NOT IN HEAVEN, BUT HERE ON EARTH, and it can be achieved once the woke people tear down the current world order and take the reins of Government. 😲 Violence is an acceptable means to an end in the woke religion.
Love of others is not a tenet of Wokeism, which turns this Biblical principal on its head. In the world of woke, brutality is the name of the game. Insults, canceling, doxxing — all are considered virtuous acts that somehow enhance one’s moral standing. This is a religion that has no doctrine of atonement, no concept of forgiveness, and no possibility of real redemption.
2 Corinthians 11:14: No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.
Jude 1: 3 Beloved, while I was making every effort to write you about our common salvation, I felt the necessity to write to you appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith that was once for all time handed down to the saints. 4: For certain men have crept in unnoticed, who long ago were marked out for this condemnation, ungodly men, who turn the grace of our God into lewdness (promoting sexual sin) and deny the only Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Galatians 1:8: But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
Today, I read a new statistic that shows the enemy’s schemes are working on this last-days generation…
Death 💀 of a Biblical Worldview in America: Most Parents of Young Children Do not Believe in Jesus for Salvation
Millennial moms and dads aren’t passing on a biblical worldview to their children, according to research conducted by Dr. George Barna at Arizona Christian University’s Cultural Research Center.
The numbers also show only 1% of this parent group in Catholic, mainline Protestant, and black Protestant churches have a biblical worldview, compared to just 9% in evangelical, charismatic, and non-denominational churches. Dr. Barna says this trend has been on the decline for about 25-years now and it’s getting down into the very low single digits with each succeeding adult generation. As millennial parents become the majority, Barna worries those numbers could get worse as they’re seen as least likely to have and share a Christian lens.
“It’s very sobering from a Christian perspective and Christian worldview but I’m not surprised,” said Dr. Danny Huerta, vice president of Parenting and Youth at Focus on the Family. “Really, culture has done a great job of messaging the fact that – ‘Hey, let’s just live free and limitless.‘ We’ve created ultimately a consumer-focused culture.Death of a Biblical Worldview in America: Most Parents of Young Children Don’t Believe in Jesus for Salvation | CBN News
The enemy’s woke religion is not just coming in like a flood, it is sweeping this world like a MASSIVE TIDAL WAVE. 🌊💀 The result of this is what we saw above….only 1% of young parents who self-identify as Catholic or Mainline Protestant hold a Biblical Worldview. ONE PERCENT!!! Though a little better, we also find that only 9% of young parents in evangelical, charismatic, and non-denominational churches hold a Biblical worldview! These are the supposed young (millennial) believers of the world who say they believe in Jesus Christ, but do NOT have a Biblical Worldview and are NOT teaching the Bible to their children. 😲
What is a “Biblical Worldview”? Simply put, a worldview is the way that a human being looks at life—the way we perceive things. Everyone has a lens through which they look at the world. And the way we look at the world makes all the difference in the world. It determines how we define reality, as well as how we relate to each other.
A Biblical worldview🔎 is one that views the world through the lens of Scripture. It starts at Genesis 1:1 and ends at Revelation 22:21.
- It explains the cause for the universe,
- the purpose for mankind,
- the mission of Jesus Christ to redeem those who are cut off from God by their sins (Isaiah 59:2), which included all of us.
- We see suffering as just a vapor in time compared to the glorious eternity that’s coming (Rom 8:18).
- We understand that whatever happens will be for our very best, regardless of what it feels like at the time (Rom 8:28).
- And it shows us how God can use evil for His own good purposes (Gen 50:20), We need look no further than the cross ✝️ to see that (John 3:16).
- It explains why the world is in the mess that it is.
- and where this mess is heading, along with the future for not only mankind, but also the earth.
- It also explains the existence of a spiritual world that we cannot yet see, but directly affects us on earth. This spiritual realm includes unseen (SPIRITUAL FRIENDS ✝️😇 The Godhead (Father/Son/Holy Spirit) and His Holy Angels) who seek the best for us – ETERNAL LIFE. It also includes unseen (SPIRITUAL ENEMIES 😈 Satan, demons and the fallen angels) who seek our destruction – ETERNAL DEATH. 💀
The religion (cult) of wokeism is CHOKING OUT the Biblical worldview. It has even infiltrated MANY lukewarm churches, and it is attempting to KILL TRUE (Biblical) Christianity and replace it with the woke cult.
Satan, the “enemy” of mankind, the avowed enemy of Christ and His people, has come into the world, and into the church in these latter days “like” an impetuous flood, 🌊introducing a…..
- flood of immorality and profaneness, as in the days of Noah and Lot, to which the times of the Son of Man’s coming are likened, ( Luke 17:26-30 ) ( 2 Timothy 3:1-5 )
- a FLOOD OF ERROR AND HERESY OF ALL SORTS; see ( Revelation 12:15 )
- a FLOOD OF DECEPTION (1 Timothy 4:1, Matthew 24:24, 2 Thessalonians 2:3)
- and likewise a flood of persecution, as will be at the slaying of the witnesses, that hour of temptation that will come upon all the earth, to try the inhabitants of it, ( Revelation 3:10 ) ( Revelation 11:7 Revelation 11:8 ) .
The IDOLATRY of Wokeism is FLOODING the earth🌊. Sins are multiplying as good is called evil and evil good. Self-proclaimed Christians are now no longer believing the Word of God or viewing the world with a Biblical Worldview. At the same time, we have record pandemics (Covid 19 and now Monkeypox??), Unprecedented censorship. Stolen elections around the globe. The World Health Organization is meeting TODAY, May 22, 2022 to vote whether or not to ratify the amendment proposed by the Biden administration where all nations of the earth cede their sovereignty over their national health care decisions to the WHO.”💀😲 On May 22: WHO will have authority to lock down all of America (israel365news.com)
Isaiah 59: For our transgressions are multiplied before You,
And our sins testify against us;
For our transgressions are with us,
And as for our iniquities, we know them:
13 In transgressing and lying against the Lord,
And departing from our God,
Speaking oppression and revolt,
Conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.
14 Justice is turned back,
And righteousness stands afar off;
For truth is fallen in the street,
And equity cannot enter.
15 So truth fails,
And he who departs from evil makes himself a prey.
The Bible states that the Last days will be a time of terrible trouble such as never was since there was a nation and never will be again. ( Daniel 12:1 ). At the time of GREAT TRIBULATION and SORROWS, when the enemy comes in like a FLOOD🌊 (as he is now), theN the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard🚩 against him (Satan).
Isaiah 59:15: Then the Lord saw it, and it displeased Him
That there was no justice.
16 He saw that there was no man,
And wondered that there was no intercessor;
Therefore His own arm brought salvation for Him;
And His own righteousness, it sustained Him.
17 For He (JESUS CHRIST) ✝️put on righteousness as a breastplate,
And a helmet of salvation on His head;
He put on the garments of vengeance for clothing,
And was clad with zeal as a cloak.
18 According to their deeds, accordingly He (jesus christ) will repay,
Fury to His adversaries,
Recompense to His enemies;
The coastlands He will fully repay.
19 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.
The enemy is a terrible and powerful foe, coming in like a TIDAL WAVE🌊, of moral decay and rot (iniquity), LIES and deception, persecution, false doctrines, injustice and inequity.
What will God do? Does God SEE? Oh, yes, God definitely SEES 👀all that is happening.
2 Chronicles 16:9: For the eyes👀 of the Lord roam throughout the earth, so that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His. You have acted foolishly in this. Indeed, from now on you will have wars.”
Hebrews 4:13: And there is no creature hidden from His (YHWH’S) sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes 👀of Him to whom we must answer.
In response to this FLOOD 🌊by the enemy, The SPIRIT of the LORD (YHWH) WILL “lift up” a standard! 🚩against him (against Satan’s advances)” The Hebrew word for “standard” is spelled “nus” (pronounced noos) and normally means (142 times in the Old Testament) “to flee.” But here that meaning does not exactly fit. Partly because of the phrase “against him,” opposing the enemy. (The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.)
This is not running away from the enemy … no! WHEN GOD LIFTS UP THE STANDARD, HE IS running TOWARD the enemy! THE ENEMY HAS COME against god’s people LIKE A FLOOD, BUT now GOD IS GOING ON THE OFFENSIVE, Attacking him, counterattacking him! A careful study of the Hebrew wording of Isaiah 59 shows us that The Holy Spirit ENERGETICALLY, FURIOUSLY, WITH ALL HIS MIGHT counteracts the encroaching enemy😈 of our souls!!! God will RUN TOWARDS THE FLOODTIDE, ATTACKING IT! 💖
Jesus Christ and His Gospel, or Christ as the standard/SIGNAL FLAG/ENSIGN ✝️ shall be LIFTED UP in the ministry of the Gospel, (Isaiah 11:12 ). Some Biblical commentators believe that a LAST-DAYS set of ministers (144,000? Rev. 14:1-5) shall be raised up, having the everlasting Gospel✝️, which they shall publish to all nations (Rev. 14:6), and which shall have a universal spread; and by means of which the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the Lord ✝️ as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14, Isaiah 11:9). Censorship cannot stop this move of God that will reach the entire earth.
In the scriptures, an ensign is a flag 🚩or “standard” around which people gather in unity of purpose or identity. In ancient times an ensign served as a rallying point for soldiers in battle.
Jesus Christ, the SON OF YHWH, is our ENSIGN or STANDARD🚩✝️.
Habakkuk 2:14: For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.
Isaiah 11:9: They will not hurt or destroy in all My holy mountain,
For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea.
Isaiah 11:10: Then on THAT DAY
The nations will resort to the root of Jesse (Jesus Christ IS the Root of Jesse),
Who will stand as a signal flag 🚩✝️ (standard/ensign) for the peoples;
And His (JESUS CHRIST) resting place will be glorious.
Isaiah 11:12: And He (JESUS CHRIST) will lift up a flag🚩✝️ (standard/ensign) for the nations
And assemble the banished ones of Israel,
And will gather the dispersed of Judah
From the four corners of the earth. (Regathering His people, Jew and Gentile, One in Messiah)
Rev. 14:1 Then I looked, and behold, the Lamb (JESUS CHRIST) was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him 144,000 who had His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads. (144,000 transformed Saints singing a NEW SONG. God is doing a NEW THING)
Rev. 14:6 And I saw another angel flying in midheaven with an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, and to every nation, tribe, language, and people;
This POWERFUL GREAT MOVE OF GOD will be more than sufficient to check✔️ the enemy’s flood 🌊of DECEPTION, immorality, error, and persecution; causing the wicked 😈(those who REJECT GOD (FATHER/SON/HOLY SPIRIT) and are in league with Satan) to RUN AND HIDE!! ULTIMATELY, the enemy shall be no more. HALLELUJAH!!! Praise Jesus!!! 💕🙌
Luke 23:30 Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us,’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us.’ 31 For if they do these things when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry?”
Rev. 6: 12 And I looked when He (JESUS CHRIST) broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became as black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. (Every earthly government was disrupted)
15 Then the kings of the earth and the eminent people, and the commanders and the wealthy and the strong, and every slave and free person hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they *said to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the sight of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; 17 for the great day of Their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (The wicked will look to human government to save them from God’s Wrath)
Revelation 20:10: And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
Psalm 37:10: A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found.
We ARE in the Days of Noah, where the enemy’s WICKED schemes and devices have come in like a FLOOD, like a TIDAL WAVE. 🌊 As in the Days of Noah, this SPIRITUAL FLOOD, is a GLOBAL FLOOD, sweeping the entire earth. 🌎 As God LIFTED UP the ARK and made a way of ESCAPE, God will LIFT UP A STANDARD 🚩that will come against the enemy’s FLOOD. Jesus Christ IS God’s STANDARD, His Flag, His Ark of protection and ESCAPE. Run to JESUS NOW while there is still time! The FLOOD IS HERE! JESUS IS COMING SOON! 💕🙏✝️
Matthew 24:37 For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah.
8 For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.
40 At that time there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left.
42 “Therefore be on the alert, 🔎 for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.
Be ready! The FLOOD is here now! The TRIBULATION is casting its shadow on this earth NOW! Jesus is coming soon!
