Charlie Daniels: “Blood will Flow as High as a Horse’s Bridle”

From the website of country music star Charlie Daniels:

I am a big fan of Bible prophecy and now is a fascinating time to be alive because some of the major Old Testament Prophecies have been fulfilled in my lifetime.

…There is still much Bible prophecy left to be fulfilled, most of it dealing with Israel and the Jewish people and most especially Jerusalem, which will be a point of contention in the very last battle of the age…

According the infallible word of the Living God, He, in His awesome anger will fight for His chosen people leaving 85% or so of the enemy troops dead in the Jezreel Valley, the plains of Armageddon.

Blood will flow as high as a horse’s bridle as an army of two hundred million are divinely caused to fight among themselves leaving but one sixth of them alive to go home and tell the story of what the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob wrought.

In broad outline, this sanguinary vision is standard apocalyptic Christian Zionism, although he glosses over the details that the End-Times scenario also involves most Jews being killed. “Divinely caused to fight among themselves” is a novel element, though – in the Left Behind novels, for instance, God simply “superheats” the soldiers at the Battle of Armageddon and causes them all to explode and/or melt (and for good measure God also smites their horses in the same way).

Daniels’s end-times ruminations have been brought to wider attention by the website WND, and they provide a hook to promote a new DVD documentary featuring the singer:

REVELATION, Dawn of Global Government, is a unique film starring country music legend Charlie Daniels, Special Ops General William Boykin and Mark Collins as “George Washington”. This film reflects a Biblical world view so well illustrated in Revelation by the four horsemen of the apocalypse. The American Republic, Christian faith and liberty are rapidly being destroyed by the Trojan Horse of globalism. As we have slept, “change has come to America”. Awakened late, we will find ourselves suffocated in a global prison planet, controlled by a New World Order. The Republic weeps…listen to her cry!

Once again, conspiracy thinking and eschatology are entangled.

I previously wrote about Boykin here. The documentary also features Alex Jones, and it is the sequel to Behold a Pale Horse: America’s Last Chance, made in 2012. The director of both is a photographer named Chuck Untersee – he and Alex Jones discussed the earlier work on Infowars at the time of its release.

  1. I agree that Biblical prophecy and Conspiracy theory is combined in much of this outlook, but on the other hand, back in 1966 Carrol Quigley wrote a massive tome, ‘Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time” in which he acknowledged that there is in deed a Globalist mindset amongst a global elite, that is working for some kind of world governance, but which wants its activities to be kept secret and behind the scenes! He held that its intentions were NOT malign. This is what Quigley wrote, ‘The powers of financial capitalism had a far-reaching (plan), nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.” Well, there is food for thought.
