Psalm 32:9 (a) This is a warning that the believer should use good judgment, think for himself, and not be just as an animal that must be guided by another.

Psalm 33:17 (b) This is a type of any human resource in which people trust for deliverance instead of in the living GOD.

Jeremiah 12:5 (c) This is a peculiar type - the footmen represent ordinary Christians living ordinary Christian lives. They make the unsaved man weary and he wishes to get away from their influence and company. The horses represent Christians who have come to full growth even perhaps those who have already been taken to Heaven. If the weak Christian wearies the sinner, how much more will those Christians who have been made like CHRIST and have been brought into perfect manhood and full stature for GOD? The sinner would not be able to stand their presence at all.

The horses in Zechariah 1,6 probably represent great movements wrought by GOD in dealing with men.

Zechariah 6:2 (b) The red horse - a type of the destructive power of war. (See also Revelation 6:4).

Zechariah 6:3 (b) The black horse - represents world-wide famine which naturally follows great wars both international and internal. (See also Revelation 6:5). Each person receives his food by weight.

Zechariah 6:3 (b) Bay horse - probably represents the scourge of pestilence and disease which follows upon the famine that follows the war. (See also Revelation 6:8).

Zechariah 6:3 (b) The white horse - probably represents a man-made peace which will be forced upon the world by the antichrist under the guise of religion and righteousness. It will be a false peace which will not stand. (See also Revelation 6:2).

Revelation 19:11 (b) The white horse - typical of the great power which the Lord JESUS will exhibit in righteousness and justice when He comes forth from Heaven as the Almighty Conqueror.
