10 . Jehovah Shabaoth (Lord of Hosts)
The word Jehovah Shabaoth is mentioned 281 times in Word of God. “for the battle is the Lord’s” was the keyword which strengthened the Israelites whenever theywent out to fight. Their enemies were stronger and greater in number than them. But Lord of Hosts ws with them to lead them and fight for them. Only because of God they won their battles. Their stories of wars znd their victories appear like fairy tales.
At red sea Lord went before them and led them through dry ground . This was the most fantastic event in their history. (Exodus 14)
At rhe war with Amalekites Joshua fought the actual war. Moses fought the war spiritually through continuous prayer. (Exodus 17)
The war between David and Goliath is thrilling. David won the war not because of his strength but only because he went outin the name of the Lord. (1Samuel 17) The war in Jeriho where the fort was very strong and the enemies were very tough,is equally wonderful. Lord guided their strategy and they had a very miraculous victory. And so on.....
They never won the warsbecausr oftheirstrength, horsesorweapons. If God be for uswho can be against us? Yes, the Jehovah Shabaaoth was always for them in their battles.
