Hoofbeats is a song I wrote based off of Revelation 19:7-16 and off of a book series I am reading through called Left Behind the kids. Let me first share with you the Bible passage.
It reads, Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God. And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.”
... Ok, now for the series. ...
In one of the books we're introduced to this evil demonic band which makes fun of believers of Christ. Their called, "The Four horsemen." One of their songs in the book is called Hoofbeats and it's all about how the believers during the tribulation supposedly saw horses and riders but the nonbelievers didn't see them. Sure that's speculation on the part of the authors of corse but, that got me to thinking about what the Bible has to say concerning the army of Christ and Jesus himself. Then I got to thinking about rather the horses would make noise or not as their heavenly beings. So, I guess it's my turn to speculate.
So, I wrote this little ditty as a result of all of that.
