Who is the Lord of Hosts?

In this post, I will be sharing with you a bunch of Bible verses that have led me to believe that when the Bible speaks of the “Lord of hosts”, they are actually speaking of a whole different person than when speaking about the Lord. Since I started noticing these things in the Bible it has changed a lot of how I am interpreting the information that I read. It really does change a lot of things in it. If I am right that is. If you have never read any of my previous posts then I will give you an update on what I am all about.

I am very new to the Bible. I have only been studying the Bible for the last year or so. I started studying the Bible because of certain happenings in my life. If you would like to read more about that then check out my posts Mistaken All Our Lives.

So I do not claim to know crap about crap really when it comes to the Bible. I know that there are many out there who are way more knowledgeable when it comes to the content that is inside the Bible. What I share in my posts is what I seem to be finding and I am searching for the truth that I believe is hidden somewhere inside the Bible. So possibly I will learn something from others out there by sharing what I am finding. And uncover some of the truths that seem to be hidden in there. I guess we will see.

So I am not claiming to be anyone special at all. I am just trying to share what I feel like I am being led to share. So feel free to comment if you have anything that you would like to also share. And I hope that some of you out there may try out what I am introducing to you in this post. Try reading the Bible with what I am proposing to you. The Lord of hosts is a separate character in the Bible from the Lord God. And then see what you think about how it changes your reading of the Bible. I believe it is so much less confusing.

When I was first starting to read the Bible I have to say I was so very confused. I mean the fact that they spoke so much differently than what we do these days makes it hard enough to really understand the Bible. Let alone how they are wording parts of it. You will have parts in it where the Lord will be referring to himself 2 or 3 times in one sentence. Confusing as Crap! Then I started noticing how “God’ seemed to be speaking of a whole separate person in many areas. I started looking it up online. To find out who the Lord of hosts was. And all that I got was that it was God when he was ready to do battle. That did not help at all.

Then I started reading the “Lost books of Adam and Eve”. And I started noticing how they kept referring to the Devil’s angels as his host. And I had heard over time something about a host of angels. And that thought kept on sticking in my head. So to go a step further and put the label of Lord of hosts to the Devil is not stretching it too far in my opinion. He obviously would be the Lord to his host of angels. I mean I could be wrong about putting the label to the Devil. It could possibly be someone different. But it does seem to fit. Especially when you see how the LoH seems to be a hell of a lot meaner than the other character. As you read through some of my examples below you will see what I am talking about when it comes to the LoH.

But first I will share some definitions with you. That way if there are words in the following topic you did not understand, hopefully the definitions I am sharing will shed a little light.

Definitions:
Host

Baal: Ancient Deity. As a Semitic common noun, Baal meant “owner” or “Lord”, though it could be used more generally; for example, a ball of wings was. a winged creature. Baal was designated the universal God of fertility, and in that capacity his title was Prince, Lord of the Earth. He was also called the Lord of Rain and Dew. In Ugaritic and Hebrew, Baal’s epithet as the storm god was He Who Rides On The Clouds. Baal was also worshipped as a local God, What made the name Baal anathema to the Israelites was the program of Jezebel, in the 9th century BCE, to introduce into Israel her Phoenician cult of Baal in opposition to the official worship of Yahweh (I Kings 18).

I am 47 and have 3 grown daughters. And I have 1 granddaughter who I am crazy about! I am a recovering heroin addict who has now been clean for over 7 years now. Well I should say clean from needles for that amount of time. I can’t say completely clean because my Dr’s had me on methadone pills for a while when I was first released from the hospital. I then self medicated myself and went to a Dr for a while for suboxone. Which I then used to get myself off of the methadone pills. I was paralyzed as a result of using needles. My Dr’s never thought that I would walk again with the amount of infection they had to remove from my spinal cord. Yet I am now walking! Unassisted even. I do not require a cane or anything to walk now, is what I mean by unassisted. I do better with a cane but I can actually do it without it. So I have been back to school and almost have my associates degree in general studies. I was focusing on going to school to be a drug and alcohol counselor. I have changed my mind on that now and I have been focusing on doing affiliate sales and working on my website. These projects that I have been doing for the last 4-5 years is what has been literally saving my life! And keeping me off of the drugs! I am trying to bring about some awareness concerning addiction and what can happen to a person if they use needles with my website. Though I changed my mind on working as a counselor I still want to try and help others out there who are still struggling with their addictions. So I hope that you will follow me either on my blog or my Facebook pages and help support getting addicts the help that they really need. Instead of the stereotype labels they get here in America as well as the criminal label they acquire when they cannot just quit their use of drugs or alcohol.
