War has broken out between Israel and Hamas and Christians are looking for signs of the end of the age. At the end of this article, I will share supernatural testimonies connected with this war but first we must identify what is happening. The horrible war is intense and the atrocities instigated by Palestinian terrorists have been beyond the pale. The human suffering has been extreme and believers around the world are praying earnestly for Israel’s protection and swift victory. At this time, Israel is determined to eradicate Hamas. Students of scripture understand that wars against Israel are prophesied in the Bible and it will be during such a time when revival will come and the eyes of God’s chosen people will be opened to recognize Jesus as Messiah. Ultimately the great tribulation begins at such a time as this and it will start with the coming of a white horse.


Lions, eagles, oxen and horses are in heaven. We read about them in Ezekiel, Zechariah, 2 Kings and Revelation. They are not fashioned after animals on earth for they existed long before the earth was created. The lion, eagle, ox and horses, on earth, were designed after angelic spirits in heaven.

Many in the Church have thought that the four apocalyptic horses of Revelation 5 are demonic but this is error. They are the spirits of heaven and are before the throne of God. They are sent to earth by God to do His bidding. It is a terrible mistake to call them demonic or to associate them with the Antichrist. Studying scripture reveals the truth.

“there before me was a man riding a red horse! Behind him were red, brown and white horses. The angel…answered, ‘They are the ones the Lord has sent to go throughout the earth’” (Zech. 1:8-10)

Again Zechariah was shown the horses of heaven. “I looked again – and there before me were four chariots. The first chariot had red horses, the second black, the third white, and the fourth dappled- all of them powerful. I asked the angel…‘What are these? The angel answered me, “These are the four horses of heaven, going out from standing in the presence of the Lord’…so they went throughout the earth” (Zech. 6:1-7)

The horses are ambassadors who come from God’s throne room. They stand in His presence. They are holy, anointed spirits of heaven sent from the Lord.

A white horse is sent to initiate the great tribulation. “I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest (Rev. 6:1-2).

The white horse and its rider are spirits from heaven. They are servants of God. Their task is to initiate war. The rider has a bow and he rides out as a conqueror ready to conquer. He declares war and, all over the universe, the armies of God snap to attention, battle lines are drawn and the enemy is given notice. War begins with a white horse, then as a red horse is released, peace is removed and war and bloodshed follow. 


When Jesus returns, He comes to make war and all the armies of heaven come to fight a war with Him and they are all riding white horses. “I saw heaven open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war…The armies of heaven were following him, riding white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean” (Rev. 19:11-13).


All believers of Christ are spiritually connected with Israel. Many Christians are experiencing intense spiritual warfare and are unaware that it is due to their connection with Israel. What happens to Israel has a direct correlation with what happens to the Church.

I call this time, “The White Horse Awakening.” Many in the Church have been asleep and have not focused on the spiritual condition of the world. The transgender evil, for example, has targeted our children and caused many to wake up and fight back. Christians are standing against inappropriate material and demonic indoctrination at school board meetings. The fight for righteousness is waking up the Church.


Here are some miraculous events in my personal life at this time. For 3 weeks leading up to the Israeli / Hamas war, I was under severe spiritual attacks. A week before the war I posted online, a red sunrise with a warning to be on the alert.


Three nights before the war an angel appeared to me in a dream and gave me a white horse. It was strong and powerful. I mounted the horse and began to ride. I was amazed at the ease with which the horse obeyed me. It was as if the horse and I were one. I know the importance of the dream about my white horse and so many others have now shared about horses in their dreams. The Lord may show you your spirit horse in a dream.


Four days after the war started I saw a supernatural cloud formation. There was a man sitting on a throne with a scroll in his right hand. I took the picture and have now shown it to hundreds of people who are amazed at what they see. The first seal broken off the scroll in God’s hand releases the white horse and releases the great tribulation.


Twelve days after the war began, Joy and I were preaching in Virginia, and staying on a farm in the mountains. My sermon subject was Israel. There is no phone signal there. During the afternoon, we were riding for an hour through the fields and forest in an off-road vehicle. When we got back to the farm house we realized that Joy had lost her phone. We searched for 3 hours tracing our steps 7 times. The phone was lost. That night I had a dream and God showed me exactly where the phone was in the deep grass in the field. The next morning I shared my dream with Joy and the farmer. We immediately drove to that spot and found the phone. Then the Lord told me that Israel is His bride and she has lost her phone connection and has no service. Through miraculous encounters she will be reconnected and it will happen during a time of intense warfare.

Pray, have faith, expect military victory and look for revival in Israel, in America and around the world. Get ready to ride your white horse.
