Let's further explore Chapter 6, using some notes and some trusty Comments of Matthew Henry, 1710
10. Four chariots, Chapter 6
vv. 1-5 — These 4 multicolored chariots are the angels who execute the judgment of God on the gentile nations (see Revelation 7:1-3; 9:14, 15). audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
vv. 9-15 — After the judgment of the nations comes the glory of Christ in the setting up of His kingdom (Daniel 2:44, 45). audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
v. 10 — “Heldai” means robust; “Tobijah” means God’s goodness; “Jedaiah” means God knows.
v. 11 — Joshua is a type of Christ.
v. 12 — “The Branch” here reveals Christ in His glory, the second coming of Christ.
The vision of the chariots. (1-8) Joshua, the high priest, crowned as a type of Christ. (9-15)
1-8 'This vision may represent the ways of Providence in the government of this lower world. Whatever the providences of God about us are, as to public or private affairs, we should see them all as coming from between the mountains of brass, the immoveable counsels and decrees of God; and therefore reckon it as much our folly to quarrel with them, as it is our duty to submit to them. His providences move swiftly and strongly as chariots, but all are directed and governed by his infinite wisdom and sovereign will.'
'The red horses signify war and bloodshed. The black, signify the dismal consequences of war, famines, pestilences, and desolations. The white, signify the return of comfort, peace, and prosperity. The mixed colour, signify events of different complexions, a day of prosperity and a day of adversity. The angels go forth as messengers of God's counsels, and ministers of his justice and mercy. And the secret motions and impulses upon the spirits of men, by which the designs of Providence are carried on, are these four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from God, and fulfil what the God of the spirits of all flesh appoints.
All the events which take place in the world spring from the unchangeable counsels of the Lord, which are formed in unerring wisdom, perfect justice, truth, and goodness; and from history it is found that events happened about the period when this vision was sent to the prophet, which seem referred to therein.'
9-15 /Some Jews from Babylon brought an offering to the house of God. Those who cannot forward a good work by their persons, must, as they are able, forward it by their purses: if some find hands, let others fill them. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Crowns are to be made, and put upon the head of Joshua. The sign was used, to make the promise more noticed, that God will, in the fulness of time, raise up a great High Priest, like Joshua, who is but the figure of one that is to come.
Christ is not only the Foundation, but the Founder of this temple, by his Spirit and grace. Glory is a burden, but not too heavy for Him to bear who upholds all things. The cross was His glory, and he bore that; so is the crown an exceeding weight of glory, and he bears that. The counsel of peace should be between the priest and the throne, between the priestly and kingly offices of Jesus Christ. The peace and welfare of the gospel church, and of all believers, shall be wrought, though not by two several persons, yet by two several offices meeting in one; Christ, purchasing all peace by his priesthood, maintaining and defending it by his kingdom. The crowns used in this solemnity must be kept in the temple, as evidence of this promise of the Messiah. Let us not think of separating what God has joined in his counsel of peace.'
'We cannot come to God by Christ as our Priest, if we refuse to have him rule over us as our King. We have no real ground to think our peace is made with God, unless we try to keep his commandments.'
Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.
My friends, be sure to check all the cross-referenced passages for the understanding of 'symbols' when mentioned later. The 'first mention' of any symbols, will guide you when you see the symbols in other chapters, generally. Like that, you won't go running down a 'rabbit hole of false interpretation'. If you will so do such research, then, the Bible will interpret itself for you. Blessings.
Because Chapters 7-8 are best understood when read together, we will not post on Friday, August 28, 2020, but, will continue on MWF, September 14-16-18, 2020 to keep the thoughts together, and to give you time to really digest all posted to date.
Thank you for returning, as the Lord wills. Amen. Amen.
