Day 165


Yahweh of Hosts

"Listen to this, house of Jacob- those who are called by the name Israel and have descended from Judah, who swear by the name of the LORD and declare the God of Israel, [but] not in truth or righteousness. For they are named after the Holy City, and lean on the God of Israel; His name is Yahweh of Hosts."
Isaiah 48:1-2 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

"Yahweh of Hosts" speaks to headship of Yahweh over all natural as well as spiritual powers... in the physical and spiritual universes... in all of creation. This is of course only natural as Yahweh is the Creator of all there is... and as creator He reserves the right of dominion over creation.

Man.... in his arrogance attempts/assumes that the powers and attributes contained in the invoking of the Name "Yahweh of Hosts" are Man's to control/use... in other words... Man would put himself in the position of being lord over Yahweh and His Name.... using the powers of "Yahweh of Hosts" for Man's own personal pleasure/benefit/protection.

This is taking God's Name in vain.
