|In the Old Testament Joshua encountered God as|
"The Commander of the Army of the LORD"
When David faced the giant, he called upon
"The LORD of Heaven's Armies".
1 Samuel 17:45
King Hezekiah encouraged his people in the battle against Sennacherib:
"Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid or discouraged..
for there is a greater power with us...
With us is the LORD our God to help us and to fight our battles."
2 Chronicles 32:7-8
The writer of Hebrews calls JESUS
"The Captain of our Salvation".
|The above WORDfocus comes from the NKJV study Bible.|
Strong's concordance amplifies the word "Captain" further
saying it also means
Hero, Champion, Founder, and Scout.
What great titles for our Savior!
|When our way becomes a bit foggy,|
and it's hard to see the path in front of us,
it's good to know that
THE LORD OF HEAVEN'S ARMIES
THE CAPTAIN OF OUR SALVATION!
and will lead the way!
