Zechariah 1:18 “Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.”
Zechariah 1:19 “And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.”
When Zechariah lifted up his eyes, he saw four horns. The number four is a very critical number in Bible numerology and generally. That four horns appeared was therefore no coincidence at all.
Genesis 1:14 “And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:”
Genesis 1:19 “And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.”
Four is the number of the earth because on the fourth day the main features of the earth or material universe were completed. Not only that, it was on the fourth day that the great lights were created as well; which gave birth to the seasons and the cardinal points. So, we have the North, South, East and West.
Four as a cardinal number is a sacred and complete number with the Hebrews, it connotes balance, reliability, stability and finality. When you want something to be stable and well grounded, you balance it on four wheels, legs and so on.
The second thing we see here are the horns; these depicts a peak (as of a mountain), power and authority.
Psalms 89:17 “For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.”
Jeremiah 48:25 “The horn of Moab is cut off, and his arm is broken, saith the LORD.”
Psalms 92:10 “But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.”
When we hear of horns, what should readily come to mind is strength, power and ability to defend someone’s domain and territory.
Our focal scripture says there were four horns; in other words, the enemy sent these to cause chaos in the life of a believer by attacking our stability, strength and defence mechanism.
