The Lord of Sabaoth

The Lord of Sabaoth

Apostle James says, “…the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.” James 5:4

The Lord of sabaoth is commonly known as “Lord of hosts,” “Lord God of hosts,” meaning Jehovah is God of armies or of the unseen armies of angels. Thus, another way of saying “LORD of hosts” is “God of the armies of heaven.”

Believers should know that God “LORD of hosts” is the true Leader of armies, in spite of your low spiritual condition, he will fight for you. God is the universal ruler over every force whether in heaven or on earth. It is necessary for believers to realize that Yahweh is King over all, even of every nation and kindred out there – whether mighty, strong, rich or poor, and James chapter 5 proves so. This kingship of the LORD of hosts is strongly expressed in Psalm 24:10: “Who is this King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.”

All power and authority are His.

“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.” Isaiah 37:16

There is no other God like him

The LORD of hosts, God is the all-powerful Ruler over the entire universe. He alone intervenes to provide victory for His people. He alone brings world peace. At the same time, He is available to hear the prayers of His people (Psalm 80:19).

The sovereign LORD of hosts has the grace to always be there for the one who comes to Him through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The King of glory, who commands the armies of heaven and who will eventually defeat all His enemies in this world, is none other than Jesus Christ. He is the LORD of hosts (Revelation 19:11–20).

Are you crying?

“Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord….Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.” James 5:7-8

Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.” James 5:13

Always remember “…the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.”

“Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.” James 5:11
