The Lord of Sabaoth

For the last couple of months we have been meditating each day on one on the many names of the Lord.  Today’s post sounds like yesterday’s (The Lord of the Sabbath), but the meanings are quite different.

“Sabaoth” comes from Hebrew through Greek and simply means “armies.”  It is often translated as “hosts.” Thus, saying “The Lord of Sabaoth” is equivalent to saying “The Lord of hosts.”

The Lord of Sabaoth is a Lord who is all powerful because of the innumerable forces He has under His control.  God is not alone.  He has many, many servants.

We remember Jesus in the days of His flesh as a lonely figure.  However, He is not alone in the spirit.  He is attended by many!

We worship an all-powerful and almighty Jesus Christ.  Let us leave the ranks of the rebellious today and join the ranks of His many servants.

Call on His Name:  The Lord of Sabaoth

Bible notes on this post.

The purpose of this blog is to proclaim Jesus Christ to those who want to hear about Him without having to join a church – or anything else – but Him.

  1. ‘We remember Jesus in the days of His flesh as a lonely figure. However, He is not alone in the spirit.’

    This is true for us too 😉

    He will turn you toward the light and simply stay with you when you feel lonely and empty inside. Existing from day to day will become living in love and wonder all the way. From sunrise to sunset the one thing you can count on in your life is about Him being there for you like no one else.

    Don’t worry nor think the worst about the future; just take the next step. And finally you will be on top, because you will be baptized further and further into sacred oblivion (i.e., self-forgetfulness) by the Holy Spirit (Eph 5:18).
