War horses

As Moses was leading the new nation of Israel out of Egypt to the promised land, they were instructed not to take horses for their army.  They were to trust the Lord rather than trust strength.  “Appoint a king from your brothers.  You are not to set a foreigner over you, or one who is not of your people.  However, he must not acquire many horses for himself or send the people back to Egypt to acquire many horses…”  Deuteronomy 17:15

King David rode on mules:  “Then all the king’s sons arose, and every man got him up upon his mule, and fled.”  2 Samuel 13:29  “And they have caused him to ride upon the king’s mule.”  1 Kings 1:44

King Solomon rode horses:  “Solomon had 40,000 stalls of horses for his chariots, and 12,000 horsemen.”  1 Kings 4:26  “Solomon accumulated 1,400 chariots and 12,000 horsemen, which he stationed in the chariot cities and with the king in Jerusalem.”  2 Chronicles 1:14

King Jesus will ride a horse:  “Then I saw heaven opened, and there was a white horse!  Its rider is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war.”
