Bible Verses (More Horse Facts) about Horses
Do you know there are about 150 “horse facts” verses in the Bible that include the word “horse?” It seems to me that if God mentioned horses so many times in the Bible, then he is very fond of one of his most beautiful creatures.
There are some special verses about horses in the Bible that make any horse lover want to shout. Look at this exciting passage from the book of Revelation that tells us about a wonderful time in the future:
“I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean” (Revelation 19:11-14).
The rider who is Faithful and True is the Lord Jesus Christ. The armies of heaven on white horses who follow Jesus are those who have accepted him as their Lord and Savior. I’ve accepted Christ, so I know that some day Ill get to ride a white horse in heaven. Do you think he will be a Lipizzaner, an Andalusian, or an Arabian? Maybe it will be a special new breed of white horses that God is preparing just for that special time.
Perhaps you never realized that there are horses in heaven. Perhaps you never thought about how you could go to heaven one day when you die. You can try to live a good life, but the Bible says that to go to heaven, you must ask Jesus to forgive your sins. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). “For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved” (Romans 10:13).
Do you want to be part of Jesus’ cavalry in heaven some day? Have you ever asked Jesus to forgive your sins and make you ready for heaven? If youve never done so, please ask Christ to save your soul today. If you decide to do this, let me know of this most important decision you have made.
One day in heaven, as I’m riding my prancing white steed with his long wavy mane and tail dragging to the ground, Ill be looking for you!
