Nothing. Your reply just didn't sound like that to me; it rather sounded as if you thought that having armies behind you was a sign of strength.
Anyway, I don't think there's much to discuss - if you believe in Jesus' divinity and in the omnipotence of God, obviously he would have been able to do anything he wanted. However, he only said
he had those armies at his command, something anyone could claim, so there's little evidence for the truth of his claim.
