Who was the invisible leader of the army of Israel

"Behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand; and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries? And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the Lord am I now come." Joshua 5:13, 14 (1 Cor. 10:1-4).

What are we to put on? "Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil." Eph. 6:11.
