You’ve Got the “Lord of the Angel Armies” on YOUR Side
Now therefore thus says the Lord of hosts: “Consider your ways.” Haggai 1:5
What does “the Lord of hosts” mean? “The Lord Almighty,” and it speaks of the greatness of God. One translation puts it, “the Lord of the angel armies.”
In his hymn “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God,” Martin Luther uses the Greek word for “the Lord of hosts” when he writes, “Christ Jesus, it is He; Lord Sabaoth, His Name, from age to age the same, And He must win the battle.” “Lord Sabaoth” is “the Lord of hosts, the commander of angel armies.”
When David faced Goliath, he used the same name for God. He challenged Goliath with these words: “You come to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts” (1 Samuel 17:45). Though Goliath was a huge man, he wasn’t too big to hit if God was on David’s side.
What does it do for your spirit today to know that you have with you the Lord of hosts? This same Lord, the Lord Almighty, says, “Call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you, and you will glorify Me” (Psalm 50:15).
