Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 22:19


22:19 He said - I will give thee a distinct and true account of thewhole matter, in God's name and presence. I saw - By the eyes of my mind:for he could not see the Lord with bodily eyes. The Host - The angels,both good and bad, the one possibly on his right, the other on his lefthand. Nor is it strange that the devils are called the host of heaven;if you consider, first, that their original seat was in heaven. Secondly,that the name of heaven is often given to all that part of the world whichis above the earth, and among the rest, to the air, and where the devil'sresidence and dominion lies, #Eph 2:2|,and that both Michael and his angels, and the Dragon and his angels,are said to be, and to wage war in heaven, #Rev 12:7|, either theair, or the church.
