The Angel of the Lord

Throughout the Bible, you see references to “angels of the Lord,” “an angel of the Lord,” and “the angel of the Lord.” But when you see the definite article “the” used, it often specifies a unique being. You can read an article that we recommend here: I wrote each verse in this song from the point of view that “The Angel of the Lord” is a theophany, an appearance of God in physical form. If you listen from that perspective, the stories of Abraham and Isaac, Gideon and the retribution of God against the armies of King Sennacherib and the Assyrian army take on whole new meaning. There is no power on earth (mankind or demonic) that can stand against the Most High God. That is why we are His followers. There is none like Him. HOLY is His Name. – Tom Denlinger
