If you’re going to say the horses are literal then by what means do you determine that another detail isn’t? So why should one be literal and the other not.
Horses have digestive tracts, they eat and defecate, and unless you are going say these don’t then heaven is going to get quite messy.
That is where confusing the literal with the symbolic leads.
I did not express doubt about Gods’ word, only your what you say it indicates.
Find all the descriptions of white horses as God uses them in Scripture and list them. Then tell me how the descriptions listed differ from how the words are used in Revelation 19.
If something is obviously not to be taken literally, like a sword coming out of the mouth of Jesus, then we know that God has provided the literal meaning of that symbol in Scripture and all we have to do is find it.
Like another poster said, and like I said in a previous post, when you come to Scripture already deceived, with a method of interpreting the Bible that is wrong, you will not understand the correct way when it is shown to you. If you don't have the Holy Spirit indwelling you from accepting Christ as Savior, you will never understand Scripture and will always misunderstand and, even when proven wrong, cling to your erroneous interpretations.
That is why you are simply mystified as to how the book of Revelation can have both literal images and symbolic images and that is why you don't know to search the Scriptures for what the symbols mean.

You're the only one who is confused. I'm not confused at all and I found the meaning of "sword" in Scripture so I know what Jesus is talking about in Revelation when He says that He will come with a "sword" coming out of His mouth.
The confusion comes from not knowing Christ as Savior and not having the Holy Spirit to open up Scripture to you and making it understandable and from depending on the explanations of men who are just as lost and in the dark as you are.
And you obviously have never read Jesus' words on Heaven or you never would have made such asinine statements about it. More darkness and spiritual blindness.

Your exact post:
And bring literal white horses with him? And literally have a sword protruding from his mouth?
People who don't question the validity of something don't bring it up and don't ask about it. Why would you need confirmation on whether Jesus will bring "literal white horses with Him" when He said He will? Why would you need to ask about "literally have a sword protruding from His mouth" when Scripture tells you exactly what a "sword" is when it is used symbolically in Scripture? If you don't doubt it, why did you question the truth of it? And why do you need an explanation from me if you're so sure that that part of Scripture is not really true?
