The Integral Part of Horses in the Rapture
Scripture is filled with narratives about horses and chariots, but few have ever realized that horses may play an integral part in the Rapture of the Bride of Yeshua. Other books mentioned in the scriptures also speak of horses and their part in a person’s rapture. Both scripture and the other books clearly show that each of the raptures were witnessed by others. Let’s take a look at these raptures accompanied by horses:
Enoch and The Flying Horse
Genesis 5:24 – “Enoch walked with Yahweh; and he was not, for Yahweh took him.”
Enoch 81:5-6 – “Testify to all thy children; and in the second year they [the seven holy ones] shall take you from their midst.”
Jasher 3:36 – “Enoch ascended into Heaven in a whirlwind with horses and chariots of fire.”
We know from Genesis 5:24 that Enoch was raptured (taken) by Yahweh. We also know from the Book of Enoch 81:5-6 that Enoch was taken from amongst his children. Jasher 3:34 tells us that some of the king’s men remained with Enoch when he went to the place where he was to be raptured, Jasher 3:27 tells us that the horse paced in the air, and Jasher 3:36 tells us that Enoch was raptured in a whirlwind in the accompaniment of horses and chariots of fire! Enoch’s children and the king’s men were witnesses to his rapture accompanied by horses of fire.
Elijah and The Fiery Horses
2 Kings 2:11 – “As they were walking and talking, a chariot and horses of fire appeared and separated Elijah from Elisha. Then Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind.”
When Elijah was raptured (taken up) in a whirlwind he ascended into heaven in the accompaniment of horses of fire! After visiting two schools of prophets, Elisha followed Elijah across the Jordan and then watched him enter the chariot and ascend into Heaven while fifty of the prophets watched from afar (2 Kings 2:7). Elisha and fifty others were witness to this rapture accompanied by horses of fire.
Yeshua and His White Horse
Acts 1:10-11a – “And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel who said, You men of Galilee, why are you gazing up into heaven?”
Acts 1:11b – “Yeshua will return in exactly the same way as you have watched him ascend into heaven.”
When Yeshua was raptured, he rode a white horse. Proverbs 21:31 tells us that “The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but victory belongs to Yahweh.” Revelation 19:11 tells us that Yeshua returns on a white horse to judge and wage war, and Acts 1:11b tells us he ascended the same way. Therefore, there can be absolutely no doubt that Yeshua was raptured on the back of a horse – most likely the same white horse which will carry him back at his second coming. Luke 24:51 agrees, saying: “And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. The apostles were witnesses to his rapture accompanied by his white horse.
The Bride of Yeshua and Her White Horses
1 Thessalonians 4:17 – “Then we who are alive, will be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. So we will be with the Lord forever.”
Revelation 19:14 – “The armies which are in heaven followed Yeshua on white horses . . .”
Scripture tells us that there is an army of people that follows Yeshua, all of whom are riding on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, at his return. Amongst these people are the previously raptured Bride of Yeshua. Since the Bride meets Yeshua in the air, and returns in the air on white horses, it is safe to envision that when they are raptured they will be accompanied by horses, just as were Enoch, Elijah, and Yeshua. No doubt the people who are the Bride of Yeshua will be watched, too, as they ascend on their white horses.
Enoch was the first to be raptured, and that event set the pattern for all future raptures in scripture – all involve horses. Enoch was raptured in a whirlwind in the accompaniment of horses and chariots of fire. Elijah was the second to be raptured in a whirlwind in the accompaniment of horses and chariots of fire. Yeshua was raptured by a white horse. No doubt the Bride of Yeshua will be raptured by white horses as well. Enoch, Elijah, and Yeshua were witnessed as they were raptured. No doubt so will be the Bride. How exciting – I sincerely hope and pray that you are ready to meet your white horse and be raptured to be forever with Yahweh, Yeshua, and the Ruach Ha’Kodesh – I am!
We are always to be ready for Yeshua to return. Are you ready? If not, then get ready. Exercise whatever time you have to repent and trust Yeshua for your eternal salvation. Do not test Yahweh’s patience and wait too long – the dress rehearsals will not continue much longer. May Yom Teruah this year be fulfilled in the resurrection of the dead and the rapture of Yeshua’s Bride.
