GOD’S WORD FOR MARCH 22 ~ ~Genesis 47:17a~ ~ “And they brought their cattle unto Joseph: and Joseph gave them bread [in exchange] for horses…”

An interesting story of man’s relationship with the horse is told by the fossilized teeth of ancient horses. You see, domesticated horses have a habit called cribbing, or crib biting – biting the rails in their corral, or walls of their stalls, out of frustration from being confined. Wild horses, of course, don’t do this, being free. Cribbing creates a specific pattern of wear on the teeth. So, when scientists find horses’ teeth that have this pattern, they know that it comes from a domesticated horse.

Since we know from the verse above, that horses were domesticated and used at least by 1876 BC, which was when Joseph was taken to Egypt and enslaved, having been sold by his jealous brothers.

But several instances of horse teeth with the crib biting wear pattern have now turned up in much more ancient sites. Man may have had a partnership with the horse for much longer than this. We know they were used extensively after the time of Joseph, like, during all the wars, and they are mentioned in relation to the divided kingdoms of Israel, (930BC) and at Elijah’s time, (roughly the same time)

And, of course, in that case, the horse would have had to have a good size, not the tiny specimen that the evolutionists depict in their ridiculous drawings that they lie to school children, and adults with. They were used in battle, and to pull chariots, as well as carrying burdens.

The Word always speaks of horses in glowing terms. Always possessing grace, beauty and strength as well as great speed. We are even told in Revelation 19:14 (below) that we will come back with Jesus (to spend the 1,000 years in His kingdom on earth,) on white horses!!! Since we’ll be in our resurrected bodies then, I wonder what the horses’ bodies will be like?

Everywhere archaeologists dig, they find more proof of the truth of the Bible. And why should we be surprised? It’s our God talking to us!

1 Kings 4:26

Solomon had forty thousand stalls of horses for his chariots, and twelve thousand horsemen.

2 Kings 6:17

Then Elisha prayed and said, “Lord, please, open his eyes so that he may see.” And the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he saw; and behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.

Job 39:19-25

“Do you give the horse his might? Do you clothe his neck with a mane? Do you make him leap like locusts? His majestic snorting is frightening. He paws in the valley, and rejoices in his strength; He goes out to meet the battle. …

Revelation 19:14

And the armies which are in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, were following Him on white horses.
