In Ezekiel’s prophecy of Gog and Magog, all the armies ride upon horses.
“Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord God; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou not know it? And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great company, and a mighty army:” [Ezek. 38:14-15]
In prophecy, horses are symbolic of people with no understanding. David wrote: “Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee.” [Psa. 32:9]
The little horn that arose among the ten horns of the fourth beast in Daniel 7 thinks to “change times and laws.” [Dan. 7:25] It makes war with the saints, and overcomes them.
“I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.” [Dan. 7:8]
Eyes like the eyes of a man depict a fallible human viewpoint.
A great amount of misinformation has been generated about the prophetic “time, times and a half” of Daniel 7:25, and 12:7.
Ezekiel addressed his prophecy in chapter 36 to the mountains of Israel, symbols of God’s promises, and prophecies.
Of these mountains the enemy said, ‘Aha, the ancient high places are ours in possession.’ [Ezek. 36:2]
Matthew associated notable events in the ministry of Jesus with mountains. His references to mountains are listed in the following table.
