Because of the strength and courage of the horse he has become a symbol of war. He is also a symbol of power, swiftness and spiritual support and power of flesh, as described in the following passage of scripture:
Job 39: 19 “Have you given the horse strength?
Have you clothed his neck with thunder? 20 Can you frighten him like a locust?
His majestic snorting strikes terror. 21 He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength; He gallops into the clash of arms. 22 He mocks at fear, and is not frightened; nor does he turn back from the sword. 23 The quiver rattles against him, the glittering spear and javelin. 24 He devours the distance with fierceness and rage; nor does he come to a halt because the trumpet has sounded. 25 At the blast of the trumpet, he says, ‘Aha!’ He smells the battle from afar, the thunder of captains and shouting.” (New King James Bible)
Zechariah 10: 3 “My anger is kindled against the shepherds [who are not true shepherds] and I will punish the goat leaders, for the Lord of hosts has visited His flock, the house of Judah, and will make them as His beautiful and majestic horse in the battle. ” (Amplified Bible)
