Again the word of the Lord Almighty came to me.
Each name of God has a particular meaning and purpose to it and this is an unfortunate translation of the original Hebrew. In the Hebrew, the name used in this chapter is "Lord of Hosts" which means Lord of armies. The name Lord Almighty (El Shaddai) speaks of God the supplier while Lord of Hosts speaks of God the Commander (leader). This is important as the Jews of this time were looking for God to send a great military commander to restore the name and country of His people. The Jews of Jesus' time were looking for the same thing when He rode into Jerusalem as our Savior. They rejected Him because He was not what they expected.
