THE LORD OF HOSTS-3
1Samuel 17:45 “Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied”
When David declares God as the Lord of hosts, he was telling Goliath that he is coming against him with the might of the ruler over every force whether in heaven or on earth.
David knew that, as the LORD of hosts, God is the all-powerful Ruler over the entire universe. All power and authority are His. He alone intervenes to provide victory for His people. There is no other God like this.
The word hosts is another interesting word. I’m sure you always know hosts as the armies of heaven or angels but I’m glad to let you know it goes beyond that. Saying that is a limited view or understanding of the capacity and capability of God!
That thinking is a wrapped one cunningly and gently introduced by the enemy. Hosts here is not just about angels it is about demons, spirits and devils as well!
Isaiah 37:16 “O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, that dwellest between the cherubims, thou art the God, even thou alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth: thou hast made heaven and earth.”
He is the God of all the kingdoms of the earth which means He is the Lord over sickness, war, poverty, diseases, witches, wizards, wickedness, evils, Goliaths, troubles, principalities and every host of darkness you can think of.
He is the God that nothing resists. This is a dimension of God you must master. Nothing argues with his bidding. That is why I know that whatever the enemy has put together against you must give way today!
Knowing this truth was the difference between Elisha and his servant:
2Kings 6:14 “Therefore sent he thither horses, and chariots, and a great host: and they came by night, and compassed the city about”
