Beloved Names of God.....Lord of Hosts

Beloved Names of God

Lord Of Hosts

"Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of host in Jerusalem,
and to pray before the Lord."
 Zechariah 8:22 KJV
 
  • Name of God the Father
  • God is referred to as "Lord of hosts" 243 times in the KJV.
  • Lord of Hosts is often taken to mean commander of the armies of heaven." However, the phrase hosts of heaven is sometimes taken to mean everything- down to the lowliest creature.
  • God proclaimed through Zechariah that through Jerusalem's rebirth, He would speak to(or conquer) all nations and they would come to worship Him there.
Time and again, we read in the Bible of battle lines drawn and armies facing off, with God directing the endgame for Israel or Judah. But what about the private battles we wage, the ones confined to the four walls of our lives? As believers, we're privileged to have God, the Lord of host, on our side. Through the Holy Spirit, He can give us the words to say to assuage a headed or sticky situation.

Next week we will look at the name "Amen"  This should be very interesting because I had not idea that the work Amen was a name of God. Be sure and some back to see what we learn. :O)
