The Name: Jehovah Sabaoth

· Jehovah is the personal, intimate name of God

· Sabaoth is usually translated “Hosts”, the idea is “He is God of angelic hosts”

· Lord of Heaven’s Armies

· The idea of Jehovah Sabaoth is the God of Heaven’s armies will accomplish His will for His people (Jeremiah 19:15)

· This is one of the last revealed names of God used in the Old Testament

The Stories: Israel in Disobedience & Desperation

· Hannah asks Jehovah for a son (1 Samuel 1:1-20)

· The Ark of the Lord of Hosts is captured (1 Samuel 4:1-11)

· David slays Goliath (1 Samuel 17:45)

· Babylon destroys Jerusalem (Jeremiah 39:16-18)

The Takeaway: God’s mission will be accomplished

· As you follow Jesus, He will help you fight the battles and give you protection (Psalm 46:1-2, 7; 2 Kings 6:16-17; Hebrews 1:14)

· When we are in a mess because of our rebellion and disobedience and will humbly turn back to Jesus, He will protect us as we face the consequences of our disobedience (Jeremiah 38:17)

· If we continue on in our sin and rebellion, the Lord of Heaven’s armies will not protect us, but will allow the consequences of our rebellion to destroy us, ultimately to accomplish His plan in our life (Hebrews 12:6)
