Zec 6:1¶And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains [were] mountains of brass.
Zec 6:2In the first chariot [were] red horses; and in the second chariot black horses;
Zec 6:3And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot grisled and bay horses.
Zec 6:4Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me, What [are] these, my lord?
Zec 6:5And the angel answered and said unto me, These [are] the four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth.
Zec 1:18¶Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.
Zec 1:19And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What [be] these? And he answered me, These [are] the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.
Zec 1:20And the LORD showed me four carpenters.
Zec 1:21Then said I, What come these to do? And he spoke, saying, These [are] the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up [their] horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.
4 beasts and 4 horses
Rev 6:1¶And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.
Rev 6:2And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.
Rev 6:3¶And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.
Rev 6:4And there went out another horse [that was] red: and [power] was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.
Rev 6:5¶And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.
Rev 6:7¶And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see
Rev 6:8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Thought question & proposal: are the 4 horses and the 4 horns/beasts related? If they are, then the meanings can be connected. In the last days, the 4 horses that come against Israel bringing war, famine, false peace, and death originate in the modern countries that represent the ancient enemies of Babylon, Medo-persia, Greece, and Rome. So there is nothing new under the sun, if this theory is true. There is some logic in this. For example, why would Thailand, or Iceland, or the Philippines be warring with Israel, when there has never been any disagreements between them?
horns— horses– meaning
Babylon – red –war
Medo.persian –black –famine
Greece –white –false peace
Rome –dappled, grey — death
What is now history:
The order of the horses in Zechariah : red, black, white, dappled/bay
The order of the horns in Zechariah: Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome
What is still yet to come:
The order of the horses in Revelation: white, red, black, pale
Identity of the beasts in Revelation: Greece, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Rome
Here are ancient maps showing the location of these empires-horns-beastsApproximate borders of ancient empires that ruled in the Near East.
Macedonian Empire - White Beast (Antichrist) of false peace
(During the reign of Alexander the Great (III) 336 – 323 BCE)
Babylonian Empire (609 – 539 BCE) – Red Beast of War
Persian Empire (550 – 330 BCE) – Black Beast of Famine
Rome – Pale Beast of Death
The 2 mountains of Brass (copper)
The next question, if this theory is correct, is exact where is this going to initiate? The scripture says all 4 chariots came out from between 2 mountains of brass. So where can 2 mountains of brass be found in this region of ancient and modern enemies?
This is a map of the region showing mountain ranges. It appears that only Iran has two mountain ranges, if only one country were to initiate the conflict. This seems possible due to Iran’s current threats to blow up Israel.
Here is a summary of countries surrounding Israel, including Israel, and their natural resources. Turkey, Iran Pakistan, and Afghanistan have copper resources. Turkey, Iran and Pakistan have active mines.
Afghanistan has the resources, but no active mines. Israel has copper mines but would not attack itself in the prophecy. In Pakistan, the copper is near the beach in the Balochistan province, but not in the mountains. Only Turkey and Iran have active mining areas that involve 2 mountains, but the scripture does not say the mines have to be active, only that there is copper in the mountains. As of how, Turkey has expressed no desire to attack Israel.
Iran is the only one making threats. The prophecy mentions the chariots came from between 2 mountains. In the Iran map, we see a desert space between the 2 mountains. But, we will have to see which nation is the real one identified by Zechariah But this graph helps us to narrow down who to watch.
