"It was night, and I saw there before me a man riding on a russet-colored horse. He stood among the myrtle bushes in the valley; and behind him were other horses, russet,
chestnut-colored and white." (Zechariah 1:8)

The Myrtle Tree…

Myrtle in Hebrew is “Hadas” and is symbolic for peace and justice. The Myrtle tree’s first reference is found in Nehemiah 8:15 in connection to the Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) as one of the Four Species used in the Jewish Festival. In Isaiah 55:13, myrtles grow in place of briers an event that brings great Honor to the Lord’s Name as an everlasting sign of His Power and Love. In Zechariah 1:8 in the prophet’s night vision he sees a man sitting on a red horse standing among some myrtle trees in a small valley and behind him were riders on red, brown, and white horses. He has made everything beautiful in its time. (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

“The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it. You will live in joy and peace. The mountains and hills will burst into song, and the trees of the field will clap their hands! Where once there were thorns, cypress trees will grow. Where nettles grew, myrtles will sprout up. These events will bring great honor to the Lord’s name; they will be an everlasting sign of his power and love.” (Isaiah 55:10-13)
