12 legions of angels

12 legions of angels

Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to my father and he shall presently give me more than twelve legions of angels.

Matthew 26:53

That night the angel of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty five thousand in the Assyrian camp

2 Kings 19:35

Back in the day, a Roman legion was approximately 6000 soldiers. 12 legions would have been 72,000 soldiers. 2 Kings 19:35 tells us that 1 angel is approximately equivalent in strength to 185,000 men. Therefore 12 legions of angels would be equivalent to 72,000 x 185,000 men. Or 13.32 billion.

At the moment, the population of the world is 7.9 billion. I find comfort in knowing who is in control.
