The Hebrew word hallel means ‘to boast,’ ‘celebrate’ and ‘shine.’ The word is found 165 times in Scripture. The word ‘halleluyah’ comes from hallel and means ‘Praise Yah.’ Psalms chapters 113 to 118 are known as ‘The Hallel.’ These Psalms were sung as prayers by worshipers climbing the steps to the Temple to worship Adonai during the three festival gatherings: Pesach, Shavuot, Sukkot and Hanukkah.
The rider on this white horse is the same rider from Revelation chapter 6 that went out to conquest the nations (Zechariah 14:3). When the Conqueror left, he wore one crown; when he returns, he has many crowns. The rider on the white horse is the Lion of Y’hudah, the Warrior King returning wearing the royal crowns from conquering the nations’ kings. His eyes burn like fiery flames; he wears a robe soaked in blood. The blood is not Yeshua’s blood; it is the blood of the enemies of Adonai.
