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). 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).

  1. My dream was about a beautiful white horse with Jesus on it after a few secs it reappeared with an angel riding toward me and looking in my eyes I was happy looking at it showing everyone but they couldn’t see it on a wall as if it was like a movie.

  2. I had a dream last night actually I just woke up from it not even ten minutes ago. My daughter was supposed to be in school but I had walked her to school along with her little brother..I sat down to watch them play at the schools my dream I had fallen asleep and a white horse was playing with my kids watching them as I slept. I woke up in my dream and my daughter’s teacher had asked me why I hadn’t brought her inside to the classroom .I didn’t know I was sleeping until I woke up. The bell had rang the se time and all the kids were leaving I had started to walk up the street to the bus stop to go home and the white horse was walking with us but we were on the side walk but the horse was walking in the middle of a busy street almost like a freeway. Cars were driving fast and close to all of us the horse never got hit and nethier did we I kept calling the horse to come closer but the horse hept walking in odd circle patterns. Eventually I had gotten on the city bus with the kids and when I looked to find the horse it was walking the opposite direction in a beautiful green pasture with wild flowers and a passenger in the bus said that the horse was beautiful; I agreed and the passenger said there’s mine the horse was also white with one brown spot it was directly behind the bus. I thought it was odd because it was following the city bus but I didn’t say anything about it to the passenger but I had seen my white horse in my mind’s eye and the white horse was still with me. I could feel the horses presence and I wasn’t scared I didn’t question anything I just felt content and then I woke up. I’m not sure what my dream means but I did read the other dreams posted about and I started to cry not sad or scared tears but happy tears and I know that this dream is given to me from God and it was beautiful I believe he is with me I love him.

  3. I had a dream of a beautiful winged, white horse with a golden necklace around it’s neck two days ago (big, radiant gold necklace). The horse came out from the sky, flying towards me. My other self was watching while the winged, white horse approached my other self and kissed me. Then the horse told me something that I can still remember up to now but I would like to keep the message a secret, fearing it won’t happen if I tell. But it was something I would like to hear, some kind of reassurance. After the message was delivered, I woke up.

  4. A day after my baptism, I had a dream of a white horse that seemed to act out of control possessed by demons…I started praying in Jesus name for the horse to be freed and then the horse turned in to silky Pearls pearls and I was molding a new horse and when I was asked what I was doing, I said that I was making new pure horse who belonged to Jesus now….I only recently converted to Christianity from Islam after having dreams and visions of Jesus since 2015 and in my experiences Jesus proved He is who Christians say that He is! Someone explain what this dream might mean plz

    1. Welcome Servie – my dearest new brother in Jesus!

      Here’s what I found on “pearls” and “horses” in the bible and from dream interpretation sources.

      What PEARLS mean in the bible —

      Mat 13:45  Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: 
      Mat 13:46  Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. 

      The meaning is, that the proper seeking for salvation, or the proper conduct in reference to religion, is like the conduct of a “merchantman.” In his searches he found one pearl of great value, and sold all his possessions to obtain it. So, says the Saviour, people seeking for happiness and finding the gospel – the pearl of great price – should be willing to sacrifice all other things for this.

      Mat 7:6  Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you. 

      Pearls are used to denote anything especially precious, Rev_17:4; Rev_18:12-16; Mat_13:45. In this place (Mt 7:6) they are used to denote the doctrines of the gospel. [Albert Barnes’ Notes on the Bible]

      Thayer Definition:
      1) a pearl
      2) a proverb, i.e. a word of great value
      Pearls or a pearl can also mean “a word of great value” and a “proverb” (wise saying).

      What HORSES symbolize in dreams —

      Horses are usually a symbol of great passion, desire for freedom, endurance, strength, drive and powerful urges. A horse in a dream might symbolize freedom, energy, strength, endurance, stamina, power, but also hard work. It might signify male sexual energy and masculinity. Horses often appear in dreams of people who work very hard, students that are very driven, people with very strong sexual interests, or anyone who is very motivated.

      Depending on the culture, white horses symbolize purity, heroism or death. White is the rarest color of horse, and white horses have been associated with nobility in chivalry, with the sun in Greek mythology and with the end of the world in Christianity.

      Interpretation —

      The “white horse” in your dream I believe represents strong passions and drives that were “out of control,” seemingly “demon possessed,” and you prayed for the horse to be “freed.” Now that you have come to Jesus your spirit has been “freed” and you belong to Him, but your soul still needs purifying. “Making a new, pure, horse” for Jesus means you are “purifying” and cleansing your soul by the “washing of the water of the Word” [Eph 5:26] so that it too “belongs to Jesus.” “Silky pearls” are the words of wisdom you will find or are finding in God’s Word which you will be speaking forth from your lips. The more you speak God’s words the purer you will become. We are purified as we read, study, meditate, and speak forth God’s words.

      Strong passion can be used for great good but by itself can sometimes steer a person wrong, so we all need the Holy Spirit of God Most High helping us to control and tame our emotions so that God can use us more effectively in the world. I know this is true because I myself am a person of strong passion, especially about matters of faith.

      Now turn your passion towards your new Savior and Lord Jesus Christ, and be willing to do anything He asks of you. Strong passion can serve Him well when it’s not out of control. Ask Him for the Fruit of the Spirit – especially that of SELF CONTROL –

      Gal 5:22  But the fruit of the Ruach (Spirit) is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, Gal 5:23  gentleness, and self-control — against such things there is no law. [Tree of Life Version]

      Servie, let me know if this witnesses to your spirit, or not.

      The Peace of Jesus be with you my brother.


  5. 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.

  6. 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 .

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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.
