“Then I turned and raised my eyes and looked, and behold, four chariots were coming from between two mountains, and the mountains were mountains of bronze. With the first chariot were red horses, with the second chariot black horses, with the third chariot white horses, and with the fourth chariot dappled horses—strong steeds.”
-Zechariah saw a vision of four chariots powered by horses having different colors. An angel then revealed that these chariots represent four spirits of heaven, who go out from their station before the Lord to all parts of the earth. The one ferried by the black horses went to the north country, the one with the white horses followed them & the one with the dappled horses went to the south country. Through this vision, we find mountains of bronze that are unshaken; which can be likened to the two bronze pillars which stood at the entrance to the Jerusalem temple vestibule (1 Kin 7:15) that lead us to our merciful God. Further, according to Revelation chapter 6 the red horse symbolize war, the black horse exemplify death, the dappled horses represent famine & misery while the white horses signify victory & peace. The victory of Christ over death is yet again expressed clearly through the spirit in the chariot with white horses which brings peace & defeats the black one that causes death. Christ reminds us that He will judge the whole world & vengeance belongs to Him, we should therefore run to Him in repentance & faith, & He will secure us peacefully through His everlasting love. Jesus obtained eternal victory over death & through His everlasting love we receive the fruit of the Holy Spirit to strengthen us now & forever when He comes again.
You are good Lord & Your mercy endures forever. You overcame famine, war & death, & through You Jesus we obtain victory over all evil, have mercy on us & bring all people & nations to the fear of You. We thank You Jesus for You have good plans for us, plans to prosper us & not to harm us, plans to give us hope & a future, we exult Your holy name. Guide us Holy Spirit throughout this day & help us to always be devoted to You in faith & love which You have bestowed into our hearts. Remember also Father all the students who are preparing for their national exams, that You may grant them victory & good success. All victory & power belongs to You Jesus now & forever. Amen
