Jesus Christ Is Lord of Hosts (Armies)
In both the struggle for and perpetuation of Jewish freedom after
the Exodus, Jesus Christ Himself was called the "Lord of hosts,"
which means that He was the Lord of the armies of Israel (2 Kgs. 19:
31-34). In the Book of Joshua, He is called the "Captain of the Lord's
host." This means that Jesus Christ was the Commander-in -Chief,
while Joshua was the Chief of Staff (Josh.5:13-6:2). Every command
to annihilate the enemy that Joshua received came from the Lord Jesus
Christ; and this command always meant to kill--wipe them out!
"Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest."
O God of all comfort, bring quietness and calm to hearts
worried about what the day may bring.
In Christ name I pray
