The Unicorn in Christianity

Knight Templar Unicorn in East Sussex, England.

Knight Templar Unicorn in East Sussex, England.

The picturing of a virgin and a unicorn together was common during the Age of Faith — the former representing the Virgin Mary, and the latter representing Christ, Who brought forth the “horn of salvation.”

 Left is a three foot sculpture of a Knights Templar Unicorn, which I found laying by the tomb of a Knight in East Sussex, England.

It is said that the British nation is the northern kingdom of  ISRAEL, the UNICORN
The LION, the emblem of the Royal House of Judah.

According to legend a free unicorn was considered a very dangerous beast; therefore the heraldic unicorn is chained.

King James Bible

“God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn.” Num. 23:22.

Num 24:8
God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an
unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows.
Deut 33:17
His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of unicorns
: with them he shall push the people together to the ends of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and they are the thousands of Manasseh.
 
be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?
 with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?
Ps 29:6
He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn

Ps 92:10
But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.

I Saw Jesus

I would like to tell you of the time that my wife and I were giving out tracts in Bournemouth. We came across a very old man, we gave him a leaflet and his face just lit up. I said, “what do you think of it?” he replied, “it’s true every word”.

Then he began to tell us of the time when he was in India during world war two. He said he saw a vision of Jesus standing above a field hospital. His friend also with him saw the same vision of Jesus, he said that Jesus hair was so black, and His teeth were so beautiful, and His smile was so wonderful, “it changed me and I was never the same again”.

He said that he had never told this testimony to anyone, he was so glad that day to share his testimony with us. He then folded the leaflet and put it into his pocket, and repeated, “it’s true, it’s true, every word”. Then he smiled, what an encouragement he was that day, and we to can be an encouragement by telling one another our testimonies.
