๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ‘‘ What Does “the Lord of Sabaothโ€ Mean?

โ€œBehold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaothโ€ (James 5:4).

The King James Bible twice uses the title โ€œthe Lord of Sabaoth.โ€ One instance is todayโ€™s Scripture. The other is Romans 9:29: โ€œAnd as Esaias said before,ย Except the Lord of Sabaoth had left us a seed, we had been as Sodoma, and been made like unto Gomorrha.โ€ Interestingly enough, if we search the Scriptures to find the words of โ€œEsaiasโ€ (Greek form of โ€œIsaiahโ€), we will learn what โ€œthe Lord of Sabaothโ€ means.

When the Apostle Paul penned Romans 9:29, the Holy Spirit led him to quote Isaiah 1:9: โ€œExcept the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.โ€ Notice the accuracy of this divinely-inspired translation! Has anything been โ€œlost in translationโ€ as modern Bible textual critics often claim? No.

The Holy Spirit through Paul took the Hebrew words of the Book of Isaiah and translated them into Koine Greek to form part of the Book of Romans. We find the meaning of โ€œthe Lord of sabaothโ€ by simply reading Isaiahโ€™s original wording: โ€œthe LORD of hosts.โ€ Actually, sabaoth is the English transliteration of the Greek word (sabaoth) derived from the Hebrew word tsaba. Tsaba, or โ€œhosts,โ€ is the same word the Prophet Isaiah used.

In summary, the title โ€œthe Lord of Sabaothโ€ means โ€œthe Lord of Hosts.โ€ Now, what does that mean? It signifies Godโ€™s military mightโ€”that is, His strength to fight and win battles. The LORD is commander-in-chief of the angelic soldiers and the human armies of Israel (โ€œthe LORD of hostsโ€ is defined in 1 Samuel 17:45 as โ€œthe God of the armies of Israelโ€). Romans 9:25-29 and James 5:4 look forward to the day when the Lord Jesus returns to Earth in wrathโ€”His Second Comingโ€”to conquer Satan and destroy the wicked, Jew and Gentile (non-Jew) alike. source


I am blessed with two amazing kids and Iโ€™m a Christian Music fanatic! I also love to write and my websites and bible studies keep me busy as well.

At this point in my life, my focus is on fellowship and my existing relationships with God, my children and with family.

In Christ,
