SALVATION: The Horn

The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my GOD, my strength, in WHOM I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. Psalm 18:2

NOTE: The horn is often seen in the Scripture as a symbol of salvation. In the Old Testament, the word horn signifies many things. Of course, one usage of horn was to refer to a pointed bony structure growing out of an animal’s head (Genesis 22:13). Animal horns, used for fighting, protection, and securing dominance, became symbols of strength, power, and victory. Yes, Often, Scripture’s mention of a “horn” is as a literary symbol representing potency and power.

In the New Testament, Luke 1:68–69 was one of the many pointers that “Jesus CHRIST is the horn of salvation.” Thus, a title applied to YAHWEH (GOD) is also applied to Jesus CHRIST (SON of GOD); they are both called “the horn of salvation.” The very name Jesus means “The LORD Is Salvation (which is why GOD inspired the CHRIST earthly Parents i.e. Joseph and Mary.. to name HIM Yeshua from Hebrew ישוע‎).”

See, The salvation Jesus CHRIST offers is strong, triumphant, and powerful. Just like the horns on the altar offered refuge and atonement in time of Moses, Jesus CHRIST offers clemency and cleansing through HIS death on the cross. Therefore, However strong our spiritual foe, the horn of our salvation is stronger still. Peace be unto You!
