Flying Horses, Horse-feathers & the End Times

Recently, a flying horse was seen galloping through the air in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.  To most westerners, and to most naturalists, this seems utterly absurd, and surely something done in photoshop.  But I want to suggest that for those who hold a Biblical worldview, this should not catch us so offguard.  Horses running or flying, through the air is not unfamiliar when it comes to Biblical history.  The most famous case of flying horses is when it was time for the prophet Elijah to ascend to heaven.  His chosen successor Elisha would not quit following Elijah, but persisted in staying with him...

2 Kings 2:11 As they were going along and talking, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire and horses of fire which separated the two of them. And Elijah went up by a whirlwind to heaven.
12 Elisha saw it and cried out, “My father, my father, the chariots of Israel and its horsemen!” And he saw Elijah no more. Then he took hold of his own clothes and tore them in two pieces.

Another account in the Bible records a time shortly later, in the life of the prophet Elisha, when he and his servant are surrounded in the city where they live by the king of Aram and his army:

216 And he said, “Don’t be afraid, for moreare with us than are with them.” 17 Then Elisha prayed and said, “O Yahweh, please open his eyes that he may see,” and Yahweh opened the eyes of the servant, and he saw, and look, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. (2 Kings 6).

But even before this, for those familiar with extra-Biblical Hebraic literature, the first account of a horse pacing, galloping in the air before men was during the lifetime of Enoch, who was king of the earth for two hundred and forty-three years, until Adam died (Jasher 3:17).  

After Enoch reigned on the earth, teaching men the ways of God, and teaching kings wisdom, the angels wanted Enoch to come to heaven and rule over them as he did over the sons of men on earth (v. 23).

"27 And at that time the sons of men were with Enoch, and Enoch was speaking to them, and they lifted up their eyes and the likeness of a great horse descended from heaven, and the horse paced in the air;

28 And they told Enoch what they had seen, and Enoch said to them, On my account does this horse descend upon earth; the time is come when I must go from you and I shall no more be seen by you.

29 And the horse descended at that time and stood before Enoch, and all the sons of men that were with Enoch saw him.

30 And Enoch then again ordered a voice to be proclaimed, saying, Where is the man who delighteth to know the ways of the Lord his God, let him come this day to Enoch before he is taken from us.

31 And all the sons of men assembled and came to Enoch that day; and all the kings of the earth with their princes and counsellors remained with him that day; and Enoch then taught the sons of men wisdom and knowledge, and gave them divine instruction; and he bade them serve the Lord and walk in his ways all the days of their lives, and he continued to make peace amongst them.

32 And it was after this that he rose up and rode upon the horse; and he went forth and all the sons of men went after him, about eight hundred thousand men; and they went with him one day's journey."

So we see here Biblically speaking, horses running through the air, or even pulling chariots of fire (ufos?) is not something out of the question.  But still, it is not all that usual.  It seems the horses appear moving through the air when men of God are being summoned, or they are being protected by angelic forces.

The horse that was galloping through the air in Jeddah, S.A., is not given by a Biblical prophecy per se.  Muslims are living, along with Christians, in a time filled with end-times expectations!  No doubt this horse seen in the air is taken (and according to some of the comments posted on the flying horse video) as a sign for Allah, and encouragement for the  Muslims to continue to pursue a global Caliphate (global dominance), subjecting all the world to Sharia rule, (out of which comes the One-World leader)?

The Bible does tell us that in the last days, the deceivers of mankind, the Antichrist (i.e. man of Torah-lessness) and the False Prophet will be able to do deceiving signs and wonders, even calling fire from heaven.
Rev. 13:13 And he performs great signs, so that he even causes fire from heaven to come down to the earth before people. 14 And he deceives those who live on the earth because of the signs that it has been granted to him to perform on behalf of the beast, telling those who live on the earth to make an image to the beast who has the wound of the sword and yet lived.

Another great warning is given. Those who have not loved the Truth (Yeshua said "I AM the Truth, the Way, and the Life" John 14:6) will be given over to the delusion in order that they may be judged! In 2 Thessalonians 2, the Apostle Paul warns the Thessalonians of the Torah-less One, 9 whose coming is in accordance with the working of Satan, with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 and with every unrighteous deception against those who are perishing, in place of which they did not accept the love of the truth, so that they would be saved. 11 And because of this, God sends them ⌊a powerful delusion⌋ e so that they will believe the lie, 12 in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth, but delighted in unrighteousness.

If you have not, call on Yeshua the Messiah.  He is coming at the end of the false Messiah's 7 yr. reign, and King Yeshua will establish his One-Thousand year reign on earth and reign with his saints.  At the end of this time on earth, Satan will be released to deceive the nations again a short time, and then will come the great judgment, and everlasting perfect righteousness and holiness.  Sin and sorrow will be of the past, and everything will be made new. 

Dan. 2: 44 And ⌊in the day of those kings⌋,y the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will ⌊never⌋z be destroyed, and the kingdom will not be left for another nation,a and it will bring an end to all these kingdoms, but it will stand ⌊forever⌋.b
