The White Horse Dream


white horse w cresent moonUpon 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). 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). However, I would find it hard to believe the white horse in my dream symbolized the false Christ because of its regal, noble character, and because of a dream I had about a week earlier….

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)

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 vision a sign of Jesus’s soon return for His saints? 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).

  1. It is 2018, I saw a living presence in the night. A door opened as in the darkness and a man said unto me I have ten thousand angels ready. He meant to do battle with the devil.
    I saw several standing there with him and knew the rest were yet behind the door that he help open. I was confused for mine unbelief. Life has been cold and hard for men. Yet God is holy to me.
    Then later I saw a man with a pierced hand and touched it. He said I was one who had given him this wound. I told him I would do that to no man as I felt it. This was Jesus with his hand that I touched.
    Latter I heard as a person in the Room spoke, Yahweh. So my god who is ” I am that I am” is also Yahweh… I am given this name to pray to.
    Several day latter having a lust that had troubled be most of my life and was a real problem. I asked him to remove this and I heard the running of many feet and hoofs. In my mind I saw myself in a valley in the daylight and saw a mass of people running and chasing something or several something darks over the top of the rim the valley. The motion is very fast. I thought I could never move that fast…
    Those ten thousand angels are moving.
    Several day latter I saw a vision of a horse with a saddle. The voice I perceived in my spirit said I have brought you a horse to ride with us.
    Then I perceived that I could keep up.
    There is more, I wait for God’s communication, I an no one before him. I will pray for Yahweh to allow his angels to move. Perhaps we shall see miracles… Is to ride the horse to pray??? I think so. I learn as I type…

    1. Larry, thank you for sharing. A few impressions I feel about your vision are as follows. (Please take them to Yahweh in prayer). If the horse in your vision was white, white stands for purity and victory (victory over that lust you mention). In Revelation 19:14 it says, And the armies that are in the heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. Notice that all the riders on white horses are also clothed in fine white linen. The ‘white linen’ symbolizes the righteousness of God’s saints, Rev 19:8  And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright: for the fine linen is the righteousness of the saints. 

      So, when you take these verses together, you see the ‘fine, white linen’ symbolizes the ‘purity’ or cleanness of God’s ‘saints’ who overcome their flesh, the world and the devil – Rev 3:5  He that overcomes shall likewise be clothed in white raiment, and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.

      Since the Saints on white horses are overcomers, sounds like you’re being invited to be one of them. You were feeling like you couldn’t keep up with the ‘swiftness’ of the angels who were chasing those devils (besetting sins?) but the Spirit was giving you a swift and powerful horse, ‘saddled’ (ready) for you to ride so that you could ‘keep up’ in the battle against your soul. I think He’s telling you that in Him you can ‘overcome’ your besetting sin(s) – ‘chase your devils’ over the top of the rim until they ‘disappear’ from sight. A horse may symbolize a spirit; your own or someone else’s. The vision might be showing you the qualities (purity & strength) of your own spirit, and that you have the power within you to overcome your besetting sin(s), IF you chose to follow its promptings and those of God’s Holy Spirit. It is by God’s Holy Spirit working in us that we overcome.

      Keep praying, seeking, and ‘waiting’ for Yahweh’s communication. I know He only answers in His timing, not ours, but so often He surprises me and gives me a revelation out of the clear blue which I’ve waited a long time for, or one that I wasn’t even looking for. It’s such an adventure walking with Yahweh! Be blessed in him Larry and if you have any more questions or comments, feel free to leave them.

  2. I just had the a dream the other night and it was very lucid. The most beautiful white horse flying across the sky and it sent out waves of healing light and vibrations. It was like a horse in its spirit body glowing. Turns out it is Pegasus.

    1. Welcome Jay! Your dream (similar to mine) is very interesting. I’m wondering how did you know your white horse was Pegasus? Pegasus is a Constellation I believe. Maybe there’s a message in his appearing to people at this time? If you know more about this, maybe you could post it and I’ll do the same.

      In the future I want to have a page that’s all about dreams; their symbols and interpretations. God speaks to us through dreams and visions yet not all are from Him, so there is need for discernment. Well, hope you find more on this blog to pique your interest or stir your soul. I’m open to suggestions on how to make it better. Blessings to you Jay and hope you visit again. Debra

  3. How uncanny is my dream so similar to those who have posted….. I had a dream where my male friend, a nonbeliever, invited me over to his house. Prior to seeing the night sky, I noticed that he was profusely sweating, and something was wrong with his behavior. A large blow horn went off and then I turned to look up, and I noticed something in the sky lit up in a large area, traveling from west to east. I noticed the image getting larger, and then I recognized a white horse, a rider and a red flowing cape, and what appeared to be a staff in his hand. I said, oh My, do you see that, it’s Jesus!!!! It’s Jesus, he’s returning!!!. When he saw the same image, the horse disappeared into the night sky and the dream had ended. I woke up at around 1:30 and when I arose in bed, my ten year old son, and my 8 year old son had awoke at that lexact same time. I told them of my dream. They are ready for his return too.

  4. I have see many visions of Jesus with His white, iridescent/ shiny rainbow horse, Justice. His horse is ready. Jesus is coming soon.

  5. Mine is not a dream, I still remember the night sky vision as vivid as it has been some 55 years back. I was about 4 years old I suppose, and as I was gazing up in the moon light, I saw a human figure sitting in the sky. I also saw a giant horse standing besides him. The color of the human figure and the horse is white snow cloud like. The human figure wore doctor’s like gown. His face and ears etc are so large , i suppose over 10 times the average facial dimensions of humans .His cloth, face and the horse were snow cloud white. I tried to show my elder sister, but she didn’t look upwards, telling me “don’t look upwards, as it is God’ s residence “. I still couldn’t comprehend whether this real vision represents an Angel or the Lord Jesus Christ .

  6. In my white horse dream, I was watching myself watch myself watching myself watch myself come towards myself astride a magnificent white stallion, mane flying, my white linen garments flowing, and in the air above my head hung the words, “Victory! Victory!”

    As you said above, I knew it meant victory over the flesh.

    And then as the horse reared up on his hind legs, I waved a sword and knew that we, the armies of heaven, dressed in fine linen, white and pure, would follow Him on white horses. It was just like Rev. 19:14.

    Please do consider having a dream page.
