“THE WHITE HORSE DREAM”
Upon awakening this morning I recalled dreaming that I had seen a pure white horse in the night sky. It had no saddle, stirrups, or rider. It turned its head and torso one way then another, with mane flying, as it pranced across the sky. Some tree tops obscured my sight of the horse for a moment, but I saw it again in a clear area of sky once it passed them. It was the most splendid, magnificent horse I’d ever seen, having a noble, regal air about it. I was transfixed by it’s graceful, majestic movements which almost resembled a dance. It seemed like it was trying to get my attention with its grand display, or tell me something.
Then as suddenly as it appeared, it disappeared from my sight. I excitedly went to ask some people whom I seemed to know and were spiritual, if they had seen “the white horse” and if they had, would they raise their hands. I think some of them raised their hands. In the dream I recall debating whether I should ask them if they had seen “a” white horse, or “the” white horse, but I decided it was “the” white horse, not “a” white horse. The use of “the” instead of “a” seemed important, like it made a difference in the meaning. While I was dreaming I thought, “Then He (Jesus) must be returning soon!” I associated the vision of the all-white horse with Jesus and His coming to take His own out of this world, or His coming in the fullness of His Presence to His own (Rev. 19:11). There is also a white horse with a rider having a bow in his hand which represents the Antichrist, or spirit of Antichrist (Revelation 6:2). One day last week as I awoke, I heard this Rhema (the Logos spoken from the mouth of God as a living Word in the present moment for a specific purpose, applicable to a specific situation), “I am coming SOON….Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8); “hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown!” (Rev 3:11) The advent of the last Antichrist, the “son of perdition,” is also a sign of the soon return of the true Christ (Mt 24:5,15, 24, 33; John 17:12, 6:70-71 & 13:18; 2 Thess 2:3 &8).
While it would be hard to believe the white horse in my dream symbolized the false Christ because of its regal, noble character it is possible that the white horse could be that of the Antichrist. The bible is clear that the Antichrist must come before the true Christ returns, 2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, touching the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering together unto him; 2Th 2:2 to the end that ye be not quickly shaken from your mind, nor yet be troubled, either by spirit, or by word, or by epistle as from us, as that the day of the Lord is now present; 2Th 2:3 let no man beguile you in any wise: for it will not be, except the falling away come first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, 2Th 2:4 he that opposeth and exalteth himself against all that is called God or that is worshipped; so that he sitteth in the temple of God, setting himself forth as God.
The Antichrist is going to be very convincing and very charismatic; most of the world will believe that he is the true Christ but he will be a devil in disguise. He’ll perform all kinds of miracles by Satanic power, say and do what Jesus did and said when He walked the earth; he will even look like Jesus, so much so that the “very elect” could almost be deceived. In 2019-2020, I had a dream where I saw a being sitting on a throne who looked so much like Jesus that I thought at first it was Him, but upon closer examination, I realized that it wasn’t and said, “You’re not Him, you’re not the real Christ!” then I turned and walked away. As I’ve written in other posts, I don’t believe in a Pre-Tribulation Rapture so Jesus will not return until AFTER the Antichrist is revealed because that’s what the Scriptures tell us in 2 Thessalonians 2. The Antichrist will usher in a temporary world peace that will last but a short time – 3 and 1/2 years, then he will begin his reign of terror, persecuting and killing Christians and Jews who follow the True Christ because he won’t tolerate people worshiping anyone but him!
Symbology for a white horse is primarily positive, indicating a period of success, ease, comfort, overcoming obstacles, good relations, illumination, self-discovery and control over one’s powerful emotions and drives. Seeing a white horse in a dream may symbolize imminent death of the dreamer or someone else, according to some interpreters. People have reported seeing a vision of a white horse shortly before dying. In the Bible riderless horses and chariots were used to transport people from Earth to Heaven (2 Kings 2:1, 11, 12, & 6:17; Ps 68:17; Zech 6:1-8).
Was the white horse dream a premonition of Jesus’s soon return for His saints, or of the Antichrist? You decide. Whatever it signified, it was the most ethereal, beautiful creature I had ever seen.
Heaven is full of beautiful creatures and things beyond the scope of our imagination, things we can see only with the aid of God’s spirit (1 Corinthians 2:9-10; Isa 64:4; Dan 7:9; Ezek 1:16-28; Rev 21:10-27).
