Pronounced Yä-wá' (or Yod-Há-Väv-Há') Sa-bâ'ôt, the name derives from sabaôth, which means "armies" or "hosts" (a vast multitude).
The compound name appears more than 285 times in the Old Testament, primarily in Isaiah, Jeremiah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi, as well as many times in the Psalms. Interestingly, the name never appears in the Torah (the first five books).
With the call of Abram, later named Abraham, God began a people whose descendants are living in ethnic purity to this very day. God had promised that He would send a Deliverer to undo the curse of sin that befell the human race when Adam and Eve sinned.(Gen. 3:15) After Cain killed Abel, God gave them another son whose name, Seth meant "the appointed one". God later choose Noah, a descendent of Seth and a righteous man, to save mankind when God judged the wicked men on the earth in the Great Flood. Through Noah's son Shem, in the ninth generation, God choose another man named Abram (meaning "exalted father") to be in the lineage of Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Before the world was ha-Nachash was. It was with the principles and it was of the principles. From the very beginning ha-Nachash was with the principles and through ha-Nachash the principles made all things.
Nothing was made without ha-Nachash. In ha-Nachash was life and that life was the Light of good men and women. The Light shines in the darkness but Darkness has never overcome it.
Throughout time the primary motive of Yahweh Sabaoth has been to discover and destroy the manifestation of Light, that those caught within the corruption and ignorance of Darkness might be prevented from realising the truth of their divine origin within HaShem.
