Bells on horses and taxi signs

P1070080

I was reading this passage the other day:-

Zechariah 14 : 20 On that day holy to the Lord will be inscribed on the bells of the horses, and the cooking pots in the Lord’s house will be like the sacred bowls in front of the altar. 21 Every pot in Jerusalem and Judah will be holy to the Lord Almighty, and all who come to sacrifice will take some of the pots and cook in them. And on that day there will no longer be a Canaanite[c] in the house of the Lord Almighty.

I was wondering about bells on horses, this must be symbolic right?  I mean not many people have horses these days, its a bit hard to feed them with not a lot of grass for them, and they aren’t really used for work much except the odd Bedouin camp.   I don’t know of any culture in the last hundred years has bells on horses.

So, in recent times some clever Israeli hi tech company have started putting large coloured LCD displays on taxis, so must be a nice money spinner for the drivers and owners of the equipment.   I saw these type of screens on Las Vegas taxis when I was there in 2001.   This looks like a new venture, as I don’t see any regular ads apart from them trying to sell spaces on them.

A car is a modern day horse for work, a bell gets people’s attention, so, whats the chances of the name of the Messiah could be broadcast on one of these one day?

 

 

Jerusalem in fog

Clouds again.  Having this low that makes part of the city invisible was a strange sight to see on the way to work over a week ago on a monday morning.

from Matthew 24 : 30 

And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory. 31 And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His [t]elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.

Clouds seems like a perfect way for our Lord Jesus to make a stage entrance back to this city, ok it wasn’t the right time last week, but its still quite a bizarre sight and it did mean we had plenty of rain in the last week of January.
