Zechariah looked ( #7200- consider, discern, make to enjoy) and saw these four chariots. Eureka Vol. 1 pg. 76 'these four chariots are the 'cherubim' of glory, which constitute the Chariot of Yahweh...’…..David styles them in I Chron. 28:18 as 'the chariot of the cherubim.' The spirit of Yahweh rested in the form of a cloud between and upon their wings.. …Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubim, shine forth." 52010 Arkansas Bible School
... Between the cherubim was the typical throne of Yahweh in Jerusalem.. Let the reader peruse these chapters (speaking of Ezekiel chapter 1 & 10) in connection with the Apocalypse chapter 4 & 5 and he will find that the cherubim are representative of the Spirit corporealized and manifested in the Saints, the Elohim of Israel-the One Eternal Spirit in multitudinous manifestation. They represent the resurrected saints in the execution of the judgment written. J.Thomas 72010 Arkansas Bible School
…'to us, then there is but one POWER, -'the Father,' out of whom are all, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Anointed, on account of whom are all, and we through Him.‘…. He is the foundation, the chief and precious cornerstone, of this New manifestation of the Father-Spirit…. The sons of power; spirits born of the Spirit, Israel's Elohim, or mighty ones, who were once Jews and Gentiles in unprofitable flesh; sinners under sentence of Death, but (now) justified by an intelligent and obedient faith. These are the Elohim of the 'Shi'ma Yisreail, (hear oh Israel) the hypostasis[substance, express image] of whom is the One Yahweh-the One Eternal Spirit multitudinously manifested in the Sons of Eternal Power…. J. Thomas, 1869 102010 Arkansas Bible School
~Four are here because this is the military organization of Israel. Judah– Lion -- East Reuben – Man -- South Ephraiam -- Ox--West Dan—Eagle--North ~This is also identified with the four faces of the cherubim, of the Ark of the Covenant, and four living creatures in Ezekiels' vision as well as four living creatures in the Apocalypse. 112010 Arkansas Bible School
“..I looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the mountains were mountains of brass.” 122010 Arkansas Bible School
Mountain ~ Nation, Empire Jeremiah 51 v 24-26, Revelation 17 v 5 -9 to loom up impressively great or exaggerated form Strong’s # 2042 - “… to loom up, …an overshadowing force, as to appear in an impressively great or exaggerated form” 132010 Arkansas Bible School
Mountains are brass ~ Brass is used as a symbol of flesh, as well as for the Kingdom of Greece in the Image Prophecy of Daniel 2 (as the thighs). In Daniel 11:2, we have the realm of Grecia mentioned. 142010 Arkansas Bible School
Eureka Vol 1 pg 81-83 "Thus Zion's four chariots finally overthrow her enemies, and 'consecrate their commerce to Yahweh, and their wealth to the Ruler of all the earth...' Ez 38:16 "...and I will bring thee against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog, before their eyes. A world wide declaration of Peace, now is heard throughout the earth, beginning at the north country and expanding globally. 2010 Arkansas Bible School20

Coronation of the High Priest- The Exaltation of the Anointed Savior ( Yeshua the Messiah) upon the Throne of David. With the Crown placed upon His head, it is then that He takes the office and Authority as King! The vision of the four chariots going into all the earth and the Spirit of Yahweh being quieted because of the victories won, fittingly conclude the night vision's seen by Zechariah. 2010 Arkansas Bible School22
We see he is told to accept the gifts offered by certain exiles from Babylon. Invite them to witness the coronation of Joshua the High Priest, who obviously types the Lord Jesus. He would be called the Branch (vs. 12), and would grow out of His place and build the Temple of Yahweh; By this He will combine in himself the dual offices of King and Priest. 2010 Arkansas Bible School23
Isaiah 60:9-11 " Surely the isles shall wait for me, and the ships of Tarshish first, to bring thy sons from far, their silver and their gold with them, to the name of the LORD thy God, and to the Holy One of Israel, because he hath glorified thee. And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister to thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favor have I had mercy on thee. Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring to thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought. 2010 Arkansas Bible School25
