SEVEN WHITE HORSES
compiled by Dee Finney
The seven white horses signify the seven days of creation and represent the breath of our Creator.
|10-16-04 : 1:33 a.m.- DREAM - I saw seven separate,
all white drawings of white horses. Part of the description in each
drawing was highlighted in pale green rectangular bars.
I tried to see what the pale green highlighted words were, but I can't remember what they were.
(True color of the cosmos revealed, pale
10-16-04: 2:33 a.m. DREAM - I was trying to see the dream again and find out what the pale green words were and found myself in my apartment. I wrote my dream of the seven white horses in my dream notebook.
Then two men came to the apartment and I told them of the dream of the seven white horses. I also explained the pale green highlighted words.
One of the men said, "The last time we were here, you scared the hell out of us with your dream."
I replied, "After you left, I dreamed about you two and the group you belong to."
They looked very frightened at that.
My friend Alyse was there then and she made light of my dream.
(She is a 7th day Adventist and she told me she believes that dreams come from Satan) (A Kona, Hawaii case had its genesis in 1980 when Marik, a Seventh-day Adventist intern minister, began relating "dreams and visions," which he said came from God, to his congregation during worship services. Drew Some Objections - Local church authorities "frowned on that," Marik said in a telephone conversation from California, where he is holding up until the case is resolved. The following July, Marik was fired for "insubordination.")
My husband was there also and he was busy doing some maintenance work because the bathroom plumbing was stopped up and their was dirty water all over the floor, and the living room furnace grate was full of dirt and had been clogged by someone's old birth certificate. There was dirt all over the living room floor as well.
I went back to the men who were still looking at my white horse dream in the notebook and contemplating it.
I went to get Joe's 'King James Bible' to look for the white horses.
One of the men saw the Bible and said, "Oh, you have the good book!" He stood there holding his Bible and the other man had a small red book of the Psalms!
Their two sons were there now too, and the oldest boy lit a candle on the dresser and began to pray.
The other boy gave me a tiny basket with little seedlings planted in it and he said they would grow for me if I cared for them and tugged on them a little from time to time.
I then went to find my previous dream book so I could read the men the dream I had about the that I had had after the last visit, but to my dismay - someone had scribbled over some pages in my dream book where the men had diagrammed my previous dream and marked it all up with pale green highlights just like the description of the white horses.
"And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand; and I heard the number of them."
(This is 200 million)
Revelation 1911: And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him [was] called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean.
19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.
20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.
21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from
the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled
with their flesh.
|Matthew Henry Commentary:
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. 17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God; 18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. 19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. 20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
No sooner was the marriage solemnized between Christ and his church by the conversion of the Jews than the glorious head and husband of the church is called out to a new expedition, which seems to be the great battle that was to be fought at Armageddon, foretold ch. xvi. 16. And here observe,
I. The description of the great Commander, 1. By the seat of his empire; and that is heaven; his throne is there, and his power and authority are heavenly and divine. 2. His equipage: he is again described as sitting on a white horse, to show the equity of the cause, and certainty of success. 3. His attributes: he is faithful and true to his covenant and promise, he is righteous in all his judicial and military proceedings, he has a penetrating insight into all the strength and stratagems of his enemies, he has a large and extensive dominion, many crowns, for he is King of kings, and Lord of lords. 4. His armour; and that is a vesture dipped in blood, either his own blood, by which he purchased this mediatorial power, or the blood of his enemies, over whom he has always prevailed. 5. His name: The Word of God, a name that none fully knows but himself, only this we know, that this Word was God manifest in the flesh; but his perfections are incomprehensible by any creature.
II. The army which he commands (v. 14), a very large one, made up of many armies; angels and saints followed his conduct, and resembled him in their equipage, and in their armour of purity and righteousness--chosen, and called, and faithful.
III. The weapons of his warfare--A sharp sword proceeding from his mouth (v. 15), with which he smites the nations, either the threatenings of the written word, which now he is going to execute, or rather his word of command calling on his followers to take a just revenge on his and their enemies, who are now put into the wine-press of the wrath of God, to be trodden under foot by him.
IV. The ensigns of his authority, his coat of arms--a name written on his vesture and thigh, King of kings, and Lord of lords, asserting his authority and power, and the cause of the quarrel, v. 16.
V. An invitation given to the fowls of heaven, that they should come and see the battle, and share in the spoil and pillage of the field (v. 17, 18), intimating that this great decisive engagement should leave the enemies of the church a feast for the birds of prey, and that all the world should have cause to rejoice in the issue of it.
VI. The battle joined. The enemy falls on with great fury, headed by the beast, and the kings of the earth; the powers of earth and hell gathered, to make their utmost effort, v. 19.
VII. The victory gained by the great and glorious head of the church: The beast and the false prophet, the leaders of the army, are taken prisoners, both he who led them by power and he who led them by policy and falsehood; these are taken and cast into the burning lake, made incapable of molesting the church of God any more; and their followers, whether officers or common soldiers, are given up to military execution, and made a feast for the fowls of heaven. Though the divine vengeance will chiefly fall upon the beast, and the false prophet, yet it will be no excuse to those who fight under their banner that they only followed their leaders and obeyed their command; since they would fight for them, they must fall and perish with them. Be wise now therefore, O you kings, be instructed, you rulers of the earth; kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and you perish from the way, Ps. ii. 10, 12.
|"A horse" signifies the understanding of the
Word, may also appear from the following passages:--
Was Thy wrath against the sea, O Jehovah, that Thou didst ride upon Thy horses, and Thy chariots of salvation? Thou didst tread the sea with Thy horses, the mud of the waters (Hab. 3:8, 15).
The hoofs of Jehovah‘s horses are counted as flints (Isa. 5:28).
In that day I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness; and will smite every horse of the people with blindness (Zech. 12:4).
In that day there shall be upon the bells of the horses holiness unto Jehovah (Zech. 14:20).
Because God hath made her forget wisdom, neither hath imparted intelligence. What time she lifteth up herself on high she laugheth at the horse and his rider (Job 39:17, 18).
And I will cut off the horse from Jerusalem, and he shall speak peace to the nations (Zech. 9:10).
At Thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and the horse are cast into a deep sleep (Ps. 76:6).
And I will overthrow the throne of kingdoms, and I will overthrow the chariot and those that ride in them, and the horses and their riders shall come down (Hag. 2:22).
By thee I will destroy kingdoms; and by thee I will disperse the horse and his rider (Jer. 51:20, 21).
Gather yourselves on every side to My sacrifice; thus shall ye be satiated at My table with horse and chariot, thus I will give My glory among the nations (Ezek. 39:17, 20, 21).
Gather yourselves together unto the great supper of God; and ye shall eat the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them (Apoc. 19:17, 18).
Dan shall be an asp upon the path, that biteth the heels of the horse, so that his rider shall fall backwards; I wait for Thy salvation, O Jehovah (Gen. 49:17, 18).
Gird on Thy sword, O Mighty One, mount, ride upon the Word of truth (Ps. 45:3, 4).
Sing unto God, extol Him that rideth upon the clouds (Ps. 68:4).
Behold, Jehovah rideth upon a cloud (Isa. 19:1).
Sing psalms unto the Lord that rideth upon the heaven of heavens of old (Ps. 68:32, 33).
God rode upon a cherub (Ps. 18:10).
Then shalt thou delight thyself in Jehovah, and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth (Isa. 58:14).
Jehovah alone did lead him, and made him to ride upon the high places of the earth (Deut. 32:12, 13).
I will make Ephraim to ride (Hos. 10:11).
Ephraim also signifies the understanding of the Word. Because Elijah and Elisha represented the Lord as to the Word, therefore they were called "the chariot of Israel and his horsemen." Elisha said to Elijah:--
My father, my father, the chariot of Israel and the horsemen thereof (2 Kings 2:12).
And king Joash said to Elisha, O my father, the chariot of Israel and the horsemen thereof (2 Kings 13:14).
Jehovah opened the eyes of Elisha’s boy, and he saw, and behold the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha (2 Kings 6:17).
A "chariot" signifies doctrine from the Word, and a "horseman," one that is wise by means of it. The same is signified by:--
The four chariots which came out from between the mountains of brass, and by the four horses harnessed in them, which were red, black, white, and speckled, which are also called the four spirits, and are said to have gone forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth (Zech. 6:1-8, 15).
In these places, by "horses" is signified the understanding of the Word, or the understanding of truth from the Word, and in like manner in other places. It may appear still more clearly from the mention that is made of "horses" in the opposite sense, in which they signify the understanding of the Word and of truth falsified by reasonings, and likewise destroyed; as also one‘s own intelligence; as in the following passages:--
Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, but look not unto the Holy One of Israel; for Egypt is man and not God, and the horses thereof flesh and not spirit (Isa. 31:1, 3).
Thou shalt set him king over Israel whom Jehovah shall choose; but only he shall not multiply horses to himself, lest he bring back the people into Egypt to multiply horses (Deut. 17:15, 16).
These things were said, because by "Egypt" are signified science and reasoning from one’s own intelligence, whence comes the falsification of the truth of the Word, which is here "a horse."
Asshur shall not save us, we will not ride upon a horse (Hos. 14:3).
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses, but we will glory in the name of the Lord our God (Ps. 20:7).
A horse is a false thing for safety (Ps. 33:17).
Jehovah delighteth not in the strength of the horse (Ps. 147:10).
The Holy One of Israel saith, in confidence shall be your strength; but ye said, No; for we will flee upon a horse; we will ride upon the swift (Isa. 30:15, 16).
Jehovah will make Judah as a horse of glory; the riders on horses shall be ashamed (Zech. 10:3, 5).
Woe to the city of blood, it is all full of a lie, the neighing horses, and the leaping chariots; the horseman lifteth up (Nah. 3:1-4).
I will bring against Tyre the king of Babylon, with horse and with chariot, and with horsemen; by reason of the abundance of horses their dust shall cover thee; thy walls shall be shaken at the voice of the horsemen and of the chariots; with the hoofs of his horses shall be tread down all thy streets (Ezek. 26:7-11).
By "Tyre" is signified the church as to the knowledges of truth, here such as are falsified in her, which are "the horses of Babylon," besides other places (Isa. 5:26, 28; Jer. 6:22, 23; 8:16; 46:4, 9; 50:37, 38, 42; Ezek. 17:15; 23:6, 20; Hab. 1:6, 8-10; Ps. 66:12). The understanding of the Word destroyed is also signified by the "red, black, and pale horse," mentioned below. That it is from appearances in the spiritual world that "a horse" signifies the understanding of truth from the Word, see the small tract concerning The White Horse.. And he that sat upon him had a bow, signifies that they had the doctrine of truth and good from the Word, from which they fought against the falsities and evils which are from hell, thus against hell. By "Him that sat upon the white horse," as mentioned in (Apocalypse 19:13), is meant the Lord as to the Word; but by him that sat upon this white horse, is meant a man-angel as to the doctrine of truth and good from the Word, thus from the Lord; in like manner as by:--
The Lord‘s army in heaven, which followed the Lord upon white horses (Apoc. 19:14).
Of Him that sat on the white horse (Apocalypse 19:15), it is said that:--Out of His mouth went forth a sharp sword, that with it He should smite the nations. And by "the sword out of His mouth," is signified the Divine truth of the Word fighting against falsities and evils (n.52, 108, 117); but here it is said that he who sat on this white horse had "a bow," and by "a bow" is signified the doctrine of truth and good from the Word fighting against evils and falsities. To fight against falsities and evils is also to fight against the hells, because evils and falsities are from thence, therefore this also is signified. That "a bow," in the Word, signifies doctrine combating, in both senses, may appear from these passages:--
The arrows of Jehovah are sharp, and all His bows bent, the hoofs of His horses shall be counted like flints (Isa. 5:28).
The Lord bent His bow like an enemy (Lam. 2:4).
Thou, O Jehovah, ridest upon Thy horses, Thy bow shall be made naked (Hab. 3:8, 9).
He gave the nations before Him and made Him rule over kings. He gave them as dust to His sword, and as stubble to His bow (Isa. 41:2).
In these places "a bow," because it is applied to Jehovah or the Lord, signifies the Word, from which the Lord fights with man against evils and falsities.
I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the bow of war shall be cut off; and he shall speak peace to the nations (Zech. 9:10).
They bend their tongue, their bow is a lie, and not the truth (Jer. 9:3).
Behold the wicked bend their bow, they make ready the arrows upon the string, to shoot in the darkness the upright in heart (Ps. 11:2).
They shall sorely grieve Joseph, and shoot, the archers hold him in hatred; but he shall sit in the strength of his bow, from the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob (Gen. 49:23, 24).
Put yourselves in array against Babylon, all ye that bend the bow, shoot at her, spare not the arrow, for she hath sinned against Jehovah (Jer. 50:14, 29).
David lamented over Saul to teach the sons of Judah the bow (2 Sam. 1:17, 18).
In that lamentation the combat of truth against falsities is treated of.
Thus saith Jehovah of Hosts; Behold I break the bow of Elam, the beginning of his might (Jer. 49:35).
Jehovah hath made me a polished shaft, in His quiver hath He hidden me (Isa. 49:2).
Behold, sons are an heritage of Jehovah, happy is he that hath filled his quiver with them (Ps. 127:3-5).
"Sons" here, as in other places, signify truths of doctrine.
The Hero of the bible is Zerubbabel, the reason being the connection to the 11:11 where the two trees stand up after 3 1/2 days refers back to Zechariah 4 where the two olive trees stand on each side of the lamp stand with the 7 lamps. known as the Menorah. These are the two anointed - Joshua the high priest and Zerubbabel the Governor - A king in the bloodline of Jesus.
In Haggai, it says that Zerubbabel is the Signet Ring of the Lord, which is related to the mark on the forehead.
While we talked about this, a commercial came on where the God Mercury delivers the flowers and it sings - "BE A HERO!"

THE LETTERS OF LIFE - THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE
Note here, and it is very important that it be noted, that there are four compound bases, in the "SPIRAL DNA COMPOUND." These four compounds were given the letters, "A, T, C, and G," by scientists. These four letters, according to scientists "A, T, C, and G," are the basic "ALPHABET OF LIFE." These four letters, which are four chemical compounds, spell out the WORD OF LIFE. They call this written WORD OF GOD, THE GENETIC CODE.
THE WORD OF LIFE IS THE WORD OF GOD
The dictionary says of the word "CODE:
code (k½d) n. 3.a. A system of signals used to represent letters or numbers in transmitting messages. b. A system of symbols, letters, or WORDS given certain arbitrary meanings, used for transmitting messages requiring secrecy or brevity.. 5. Genetics. The genetic code--code v. cod·ed, cod·ing, codes. --tr. 1. To systematize and arrange (laws and regulations) into a code. 2. To convert (A MESSAGE, for example) into code. --intr. 1. Genetics. To specify the genetic code for an amino acid or a polypeptide
Observe that in the above definition of the word "code," that the dictionary says that a code is really a word. Or to be more accurate IT IS A CODE WORD THAT IS MEANT ONLY FOR THE RECIPIENT. It is written in a language that only the recipient can understand.
Scientists gave these four chemical compounds, discovered inside the DNA of all living cells four letters. These four letters were given for identification purposes. These four letters given to these four chemical compounds of DNA were, "A, C, T, and G." These four letters, according to scientists, constitute a genetic alphabet, and spell out THE GENETIC WORD OF LIFE. Scientists call this WORD OF GOD the Genetic Code.
THE DNA INSIDE EACH ONE OF THE CELLS THAT MAKE UP YOUR BODY IS YOUR WRITTEN NAME
THE GENETIC WORD OF LIFE is written in the nucleus of all living cells. These four letters is the alphabet that is used to spell out THE WORD OF LIFE. Your DNA is your genetic identity, and your genetic name. Your Genetic Name identifies who you are from everyone else. Everyone has his or her own genetic identity, and this identity (his or her NAME WRITTEN) is set of commands and instructions. And your set of commands and instructions are meant only for you.
Your genetic identity is written in the heart of every one of your cells that makes up your body. Genetic scientists say that this genetic identity is "YOUR GENETIC NAME." No one else on earth has your genetic name. All of the cells of your body HAVE THE SAME IDENTICAL NAME WRITTEN THAT NO ONE CAN KNOW EXCEPT YOU.
Scientists say that the four chemical letters in the ALPHABET OF LIFE" spell out THE WORD OF LIFE that is written in the nucleus of all the cells that make up your body. These four chemical letters are actually "THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD."
This WORD OF GOD written in the elements that make up your DNA, "is the physical manifestation of the unseen spiritual forces that spell out the MYSTERIOUS GENETIC CODE. This genetic code is written in all of the cells that make up your body. Scientists say that this alphabet of life is the connection between the ANIMATE (mysterious unseen spiritual forces), and the INANIMATE matter (non-living elements) within a cell.
Here again you can see the same thing in the mysterious white stone. The mysterious white stone is a connection from the ANIMATE (the spiritual-Word of God) to the rider on the white horse (the inanimate-mortal). In this case the ANIMATE CONNECTION to the rider on the white horse would be THE NAME WRITTEN THAT NO MAN KNEW BUT HE HIMSELF. And through this rider on the white horse, the name written inside the white stone will manifest itself upon the whole earth. You will see this truth as you get further into the study of this mysterious white stone.
The genetic alphabet of life is the physical manifestation of the spiritual WORD OF GOD written within a living cell. This ANIMATE-INANIMATE connection within a living cell is patterned after The Mysterious, Sacred, and Holy Ark of the Covenant. The Mysterious, Sacred, and Holy Ark of the Covenant, if you really think about it, is the connection between the ANIMATE (Word of God), and the INANIMATE (the actual physical Ark)
The Mysterious, Sacred, and Holy Ark of the Covenant is the physical manifestation of THE WORD OF GOD ON EARTH. Likewise the cells and seeds of life are the physical manifestation of THE WORD OF GOD ON EARTH. The mysterious white stone will be the manifestation of THE WORD OF GOD ON EARTH.
THE WHITE STONE WILL BE THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD INCARNATE.
The dictionary says of the word "incarnate:"
in·car·nate (¹n-kär"n¹t) adj. 1.a. TO INVEST WITH BODILY NATURE AND FORM. b. Embodied in human form; personified. 2. Incarnadine. --in·car·nate tr.v. in·car·nat·ed, in·car·nat·ing, in·car·nates (-n³t"). 1.a. To give bodily, especially human, form to. b. To personify. 2. To realize in action or fact; actualize. --in·car"na"tor n.
When the rider on the white horse receives the mysterious white stone this conquering Lamb will then become THE WORD OF GOD INCARNATE. The mysterious white stone will transfer the awesome power of the WORD OF GOD to the Rider on the white horse. This transfer of THE WORD OF GOD TO THE RIDER ON THE WHITE HORSE WILL MAKE HIM THE WORD OF GOD INCARNATE.
The Battle of the Seeds
The Devil's Opening Statement:
31 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field: 32 Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.
Jesus Explains the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares
36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. 37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; 38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; 39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. 40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. 41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; 42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
Son of Man
In the Old Testament "son of man" is always translated in the Septuagint without the article as anthropou. It is employed (1) as a poetical synonym for man, or for the ideal man, e.g. "God is not as a man, that he should lie nor as a son of man, that he should be changed" (Numbers 23:19). "Blessed is the man that doth this and the son of man that shall lay hold on this" (Isaias 56:2). "Let thy hand be upon the man of thy right hand: and upon the son of man whom thou hast confirmed for thyself" (Psalms 79:18).
(2) The Prophet Ezechiel is addressed by God as "son of man" more than ninety times, e.g. "Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak to thee" (Ezechiel 2:1). This usage is confined to Ezechiel except one passage in Daniel, where Gabriel said: "Understand, O son of man, for in the time of the end the vision shall be fulfilled" (Daniel 8:17).
"I beheld therefore in the vision of the night, and lo, one like a son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and he came even to the Ancient of days: and they presented him before him. And he gave him power, and glory, and a kingdom: and all peoples, tribes, and tongues shall serve him: his power is an everlasting power that shall not be taken away: and his kingdom shall not be destroyed" (7:13 sq.).
THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND THE BLOODLINE
THE MEROVINGIAN DYNASTY
The coming world leader commonly known as the
Antichrist has at least 33 titles ascribed to him in the Old Testament and
13 titles in the New, yet despite what some may think, he is only called
the "Antichrist" twice in all of Scripture and both times are
found in one book (1John). However, there are two titles in particular
that reappear four times between Isaiah and Revelation which intrigue. The
coming Antichrist is called a "King" in Revelation 17:8
["...the King who was, is not, yet will be again] yet he is also
called a "Prince" [see Daniel 9:26-27 "...the people of the
Prince that shall come shall destroy the City and the Sanctuary"]. In
its initial context, this prophetic warning was certainly referring to the
Roman armies under 'Prince' Titus Vespasian, who did destroy both
Jerusalem and the Temple (both "City and Sanctuary") in 70 AD,
yet it also refers to another Prince/King of the future who will repeat
the same destructive act, again at a much later time. We know this because
of Christ's own message which provided more information found in Matthew
24:3-33 in which he quotes Daniel's prophecy and interprets the
"Abomination of Desolation" to be the endtime Anti-Messiah. This
kind of dual-layered effect where the original fulfillment occurred in
antiquity, centuries ago, yet will again repeat fulfilling the same 'type'
or archetype to meet its final fulfillment is one of several reasons why
most Bible scholars view this future 'Prince that shall come' will mirror
Titus in many respects, yet not necessarily be a literal Roman Prince or
Antichrist is represented by a
single Little Horn admidst older Kings and Kingdoms of history
Revelation 13:1-2 And I stood
upon the sand of the sea, and saw a Beast rise up out of the sea, having
seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his
heads the name of blasphemy. And the Beast which I saw was like unto a
Leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a Bear, and his mouth as the
mouth of a Lion: and the Dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and
THE HINDU SEVEN WHITE HORSES
The Lord who looks after you, is small, but strong. His skin is red or gold. His transportation is two-wheeled cart drawn by seven white horses. Solis is Latin language, which means the Sun. Christians believe that He is the Lord's day. He is the symbol of Medical Science, Majesty, Honor, Punctuality, Charm & Attractiveness, Lots of children will bring you luck, and Love Freedom. You must be the hero of love or the hard-work businessman.
NAME: Chandra `the bright'. Candra. Known also as
Soma (which was a drink, but Chandra became so associated with it that
Soma is often confused as his name), also known as Pavamana (liqueur
purifier), Sitamarici (with cool rays), Somanatha (Lord of the Soma),
Kumudapati (Lord of the lotus.)
The Twelve Devas are the guardians of the four
quarters and four semi-quarters, up and down, and the sun and moon.
Nitten is the guardian of the sun, as suggested by the characters for
his name, which mean "sun deva."
THE WILTSHIRE WHITE HORSES
Several horses acquired some fame in the war. General Jan Smuts's horse Charlie took him right across the Cape in his daring commando raid. The elusive General Christiaan de Wet had two horses: Storm, which he rode at night, was dark, while Fleur, which he used during the day, was white.
White horses, perhaps because of their comparative rarity, have always possessed a kind of mystique. Cyrus, King of the Persians in the fifth century BC, regarded them as sacred and was so incensed when a torrential river swept away one of his best that he punished it by instructing his army to dig ditches and lead it away from its original course.
It is not surprising, therefore, that the representation of white horses has occupied the ingenuity of humankind for millennia. One of the most famous - and certainly one of the loveliest - overlooks the eponymous Vale of the White Horse in Oxfordshire. Carved in chalk against the hill below the ancient track of the Ridgeway, it is 110m long and incredibly modern in design.
When you stand on or close to the horse you can scarcely discern its shape so strange and large is it. The horse can best be viewed from the valley below and at a distance on the B4507 road which leads out of the village of Uffington, as Daniel Defoe found in 1725 when he described it as "not ill-shap'd". Its origins are shrouded in a veil of mystery.
Recent dating puts the creation of the Uffington white horse at around 1400 BC and, on more flimsy evidence, its purpose as an emblem for a tribe dotting its territory.
Whatever the case, it probably was the inspiration for numerous white horses etched into the chalk of the nearby county of Wiltshire in the 18th and 19th centuries. Seven survive: at Westbury, Cherhill, Broad Town, Hackpen, Marlborough, Pewsey and Alton Barnes.
The oldest of the Wiltshire white horses was cut in 1778 on Bratton Down, near Westbury, by a Mr Gee, steward to Lord Abingdon and presumably on his lordship's instruction. Unfortunately it obliterated a much older predecessor known as the Westbury White Horse, which locals believed had been cut to mark Alfred's most decisive victory over the Vikings at nearby Edington in 878. It was something of an engineering feat though: it is almost vertical against the hill face and when you stand above it you are courting a terrifying slide to death down its glass-smooth, precipitous slope.
The most beautiful of the magnificent seven is the Cherhill White Horse, located on the road between Avebury and Calne. Its ears are pricked and it is trotting. It was designed by the "Mad Doctor", Christopher Allsop, who laid out its outline with pegs and flags, then directed proceedings from a distance through a speaking trumpet.
All these horses, except the original Westbury horse, had relatively peaceful origins but in recent times became associated with battle. During World War Two all had to be camouflaged to prevent them from becoming landmarks for German bombers.
The seven white horses are characteristic icons in the sweeping Wiltshire countryside. But there is another white horse, equally prominent, on a hill in South Africa. Made of rocks painted white, it is planted on the east side of Naval Hill in Bloemfontein. It is about 20m long, from head to tail, and about 12m high.
Like the Uffington White Horse, there is some mystery and controversy concerning its origins. When was it put there? Why was it put there?
There have been several men who have claimed to be its creator. In 1932 Captain R A Ironside of Leeds returned to the scene where he had been wounded (at Winburg) 30 years before. He said that he and Colonel Deacon, both of the Royal Fusiliers, had been stationed in Bloemfontein in 1902 and, having spare time in abundance, had organised a number of equally idle African and Indian troops to construct the horse on the slope of the hill. They modelled it, he said, on the celebrated Uffington White Horse.
Some have claimed that the horse was made by British troops in the likeness of the white horse ridden by General de Wet. Another account has it that it is the work of sailors from the Wiltshire naval regiment.
In 1935 local farmer J D M Lynch (whose family fought on the Boer side) rubbished both these versions. He pointed out that after Lord Roberts captured Bloemfontein on March 15 1900 a military remount camp was established at the foot of Naval Hill (so named, not because it was anywhere close to the sea but because it was fortified with naval guns). At this remount camp, to which were attached the sick lines, or hospital, for horses, the remounts for troops were cared for.
The collectors of these remounts had to travel miles over a strange country to round them up and needed some visual guidance, so it was decided to provide them with a direction marker. "Make for the White Horse" became the instruction given to the men bringing the remounts into the city. Soldiers' efforts to construct a satisfactory horse failed so the task was entrusted to Lynch's cousin William Lynch, who was employed at the remount depot.
Then again, in 1962 E C Holmes said he had laid the horse out but that it was finished by Dan Keys "as I could not get the legs right". He added: "We did not have to quarry the stones: we simply collected boulders and whitewashed them. I may say it was very difficult to get the horse in position."
We must be sceptical about Mr Ironside of Leeds, who does not sound like a Wiltshireman. The Bloemfontein horse is nothing like the Uffington White Horse and 1902 is a bit late for the figure to have been of much real use. Equally, the idea that it represents De Wet's Fleur seems far-fetched even given the average Tommy's wry sense of humour. And Wiltshire, being landlocked, is as likely to have a "naval regiment" as Bloemfontein is to have a submarine.
But Wiltshire did play a significant part in the war in the Free State. Wiltshiremen made up 1 and 2 companies of the senior regiment of the Imperial Yeomanry (as well as 63 Company), which arrived in Cape Town in March 1900. They were moved to the eastern Free State to try to help trap De Wet, Prinsloo and Olivier. They took part in the capture of Bethlehem and fought at Slabbert's Nek, Thaba'Nchu, Ladybrand and Senekal.
In addition, the 2nd Battalion of the Duke of Edinburgh's Wiltshire regiment (disembarked at Port Elizabeth in January 1900) joined General French in his defence of Colesberg, Naaupoort and De Aar, and fought a bitter action near Arundel in February.
The next few months were full of hardship, as the regimental history of 1st I Y pointed out: "It was the African winter, and . . . the nights were bitterly cold, the men's water bottles being nothing but a solid mass of ice in the mornings. There was none of the pomp and glory of war, none of the stirring excitement of a pitched battle and the glorious exaltation brought by a decisive victory. The troops plodded on, through icy winds, dust and rain, snow and hail; ill-clothed, fed on the coarsest food, and not too much of that; sleeping on the ground with no covering but a ragged blanket; under fire night and day from an unseen and elusive enemy, and bearing all with a cheerful and dogged endurance beyond all praise."
Throughout the Free State there are many graves of these Wiltshiremen. The 2nd Regiment was particularly hard hit by enteric fever when they were moved to the Bloemfontein area after Roberts took the city.
Operating between the remount stations of Bloemfontein and Kroonstad was an Indian whose job it was to round up stray horses and sheep. Those unfortunates who lost their mounts had to submit themselves to the discomfort and ignominy of joining what came to be known with some bitterness mixed with wry humour as Mahoud's Foot Regiment and march, weighed down by their saddles, at the pace of the slowest sheep to the remount stations to get a fresh horse. The white horse was indeed the marker for the Bloemfontein remount station.
What Lynch claimed may or may not be true - that the soldiers who started marking the horse were not happy with it and turned it over to someone else. But I have no doubt who first designed it. A white horse carved into a hill immediately signals a strong suspicion of its Wiltshire provenance. In addition, there just happened to be plenty of Wiltshiremen in the area - the 2nd Regiment was there for two months in April and May 1900, which is when the horse was most likely constructed. Finally, any true-blooded Wiltshireman will tell you immediately that that is a Wiltshire white horse.
In the century that followed the white horse had its ups and downs. During World War Two the Ossewabrandwag adorned it with a swastika, and periodically university students have turned it into a zebra. But it is the most prominent reminder of the AngloBoer War in Bloemfontein and is now a national monument.
It should be treated with reverence. Those impoverished souls who do not necessarily care that it is the eighth white horse of Wiltshire should at least give it the respect it deserves as a memorial to the multitude of horses who died beneath its gaze.
In a dream, to see seven white horses swimming, means that when the spiritual quest is finished would come power and life. When balanced, this energy brings courage, persistence, drive, energy, and patience.
|The Seven white horses of Jim K
In my dream meditation, I saw seven white horses, wild-eyed and impatient, stamping at the embattled earth, each at the beginning of one of the seven paths, awaiting a rider to carry across the black plain, over the mountains that trembled with the concussion of humans perpetrating violence upon themselves.
Six of the riderless horses are nearly identical. The seventh stallion is clearly more spirited, more noble and calm. This most radiant of the seven mounts waits at the start of the path that leads beyond the highest barrier-the greatest obstacle to peace, the Everest of mountains. This magnificent horse and its path across the fearful way are bathed in light.
I struggle to clearly discern the names of the six small mountains that plague modern Humankind and threaten the Earth. I clearly observe, "Ignorance," "Indifference," "Greed," "War," "Racial Prejudice," "Immorality." Even more apparent is the name of the highest mountain, the barrier that dwarfs the other six-and it is, "RELIGION."
I knew that I must mount only one horse.
I understood that one human could not change the world but that two committed people could accomplish almost any task for good.
I trembled with exultation when I saw that the most resplendent horse wore two saddles!

OTHER WHITE HORSE DREAMS
10-8-89 In Meditation, I called the Master named Marcus. He came and his voice said, "Call my Father". So, I then called Babaji. I then saw a white horse coming with a white robed man on it, followed by 12 riders on horseback behind him. I heard the words, "Holy Christ".
I then went back into Meditation and called "Holy Christ". I saw a door open up and saw 4 books open on a shelf. I asked him what he wanted me to do. He answered, "Love mankind".
6-7-99 - DREAM - I was in a series of schools where people were practicing war. One was underwater in a big underground place, one was on the mountaintops and one was on the city streets. I was the observer in all these cases and none of the ammunition was live but pretend for both sides as it was practice.
In one case, some men were on horseback with rubber shields in front of themselves on top of the horses and the enemy was on foot shooting yellow lightening bolts as large as themselves. They seemed very cumbersome because the lightening bolts were also pretend.
It was all practice and nobody was really trying to kill each other for real
6-15-99 - VISION - Two white horses came up out of a river. One was stepping smartly. The other was a warrior on a smaller horse but it was walking on its hind legs, rearing up...and he had a sword in his left hand, prepared to charge ahead.
The scene pulled back and they were actually inside a white toilet coming up out of the water.
NOTE how that fits with the stopped up toilet in the dream I used to create this page.
