I guess anyone could have done that, couldn't they? LOL


hahaha Yea. I did that myself but still am confused as to what it means. Help out a sister here. What is it saying?

or figurative things, The things that He has made, makes up the host.

Whenever I see the word host, I always think of angels but they were already created right?

host doesn't apply to any, one thing. some have a host of problems. lol


Hi Tammy,

I've always believed that the "Host of heaven" were the angels.

Luke 2:13-15, :And suddenly there was with the angel a heavenly host praising God and saying: (14) Glory to God in the highest, "And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!" (15) So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heave.................."(N.K.J.V.)

There are about 10-12 references in the Old Testament mentioning God and the heavenly host........some folks wanted to worship them.........which might refer to the heavenly (sun, moon, stars, etc.) also.

Grace and Peace.

Thank you Richard. That's what I've always known 'host' to mean as well. I was just wondering why he mentioned it here because they were created before us.

In Scripture we find the Hebrew word translated as "Hosts" in Genesis 2:1 in over 460 verses. Most refer to "The Lord of hosts" or The Lord God of hosts" or some form that states basically the same thing. In Daniel 8 we get a snapshot that will help answer your questions and also in 3 verses found in the Psalms that will also add clarity to the answer.

Dan 8:10-15 NIV84 It grew until it reached the host of the heavens, and it threw some of the starry host down to the earth and trampled on them. (11) It set itself up to be as great as the Prince of the host; it took away the daily sacrifice from him, and the place of his sanctuary was brought low. (12) Because of rebellion, the host of the saints and the daily sacrifice were given over to it. It prospered in everything it did, and truth was thrown to the ground. (13) Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to him, "How long will it take for the vision to be fulfilled—the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, the rebellion that causes desolation, and the surrender of the sanctuary and of the host that will be trampled underfoot?" (14) He said to me, "It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated." (15) While I, Daniel, was watching the vision and trying to understand it, there before me stood one who looked like a man.
