What the Winged Horse Reveals About the Water of the Holy Spirit

by | Nov 1, 2017 | Culture

At this time of year, the winged horse, the constellation Pegasus, takes its place directly overhead at about 9:00 pm. The constellation is easily recognized by the large square formed by its stars, also known as the “Great Square of Pegasus.”

There are three horses pictured in the constellations of the Star Bible, and all of them symbolize spiritual power (see Zech. 6:1-8). The first, Centaurus, (“the despised one”) is a man-horse combination which symbolizes a man of great spiritual power:  Christ. Centaurus stands directly over the Southern Cross, which shows how the despised one of Isaiah 53:3-5 was pierced for our transgressions and brought us peace. The second, Sagittarius (“the archer”) is a man-horse combination announcing the coming of Christ, the arrow of God, the despised one formed in the womb by God to bring salvation to both Jew and Gentile (Isa. 49:1-7).

Pegasus tells a different story, as Christ, the “despised one,” was crucified and “the archer” was raised from the dead and returned to heaven. Pegasus, the winged horse, is a riderless horse. The spiritual man of power has returned to heaven, but the spiritual power represented by the winged horse remains to remind us that Christ promised to send the Holy Spirit to empower the church to carry His message (Acts 1:8). The star Algenib (the carrier) reminds us of how the Holy Spirit carried His people (Isa. 63:8-14). Two other stars, Enif (the water) and Matar (who causes to overflow) make it clear that the winged horse is carrying the water of the Holy Spirit (John 7:37-39).

So, tonight find the great square and the other stars of Pegasus, so you too can be carried along by the Holy Spirit. {eoa}
