Calling All “War Horses”

By: Deb Kitchenmaster

On Steven Schneider’s List of “1,001 movies you must see before you die”, is a popular 2011 movie War Horse.

“Joey” becomes a cavalry mount in the British Army. There were 14 horses used to portray Joey during the filming of this movie. However, the main horse was a 15.2 hand Thoroughbred ex-racehorse called Finder’s Key. Due to his spirited nature, he performed specific scenes like rearing when separated from Albert or struggling in the barbwire out between war zones.

Finder’s Key also played the role of Seabiscuit in the 2003 movie about the time of the great depression, where a smaller framed racehorse brought huge doses of hope to humanity through his wins.

This horse, Finder’s Key, appeared in movies other than Seabiscuit and War Horse.  He was in Legend Of Zorro (2005), Did You Hear About The Morgans? (2009), Unstoppable (2010) and Mirror, Mirror (2012).  Do you remember the TV show CSI: Miami (2002-2012)? Yep. There too.

“I’ve never worked with a horse like this. He has such an explosiveness, and this incredible ability to jump around and rear and look the part of a very wild horse, all in a confined space,” said Finder’s owner and trainer, Bobby Lovgren. “He’s like a wild child at times.  He’s a handful, but he just loves being in front of the camera.  Just about the only he’s not very good at is standing still.”

Whether you go by the name “Joey”, as in War Horse or by your foaled name, Finder’s Key, there are 2 characteristics that define this kind of horse. They are strength and a powerful neck.

  1. His strength

“Hast thou given the horse strength?” (Job 39:19) Yes! The war horse’s strength comes from God in order to accomplish the many tasks he is exposed too. In the same way, God gives us all the strength we need through His Holy Spirit to accomplish things that our own strength could not accomplish.

  1. His powerful neck

“Hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?” (Job 39:19) In old time battles, the war horses often had to pull heavy loads. There were needs to move a heavy canon gun or a battering ram which would be roped to a collar or yoke around the horse’s neck.

“I have compared thee, O my love, to a company of horses in Pharoah’s chariots.” (Song of Solomon)  Their neck’s thunderous strength enabled them to see the way forward. God wants our spiritual necks to hold our heads up, to look up, and to move forward in the battle of lies, deceit, and twisted thoughts, ideas, and suggestions.

Let is be said of us, “They’re not very good at standing still.”

War horses please mark your calendars for this Saturday, August 20 and Sunday, August 21.

Starting at 9 a.m. on Saturday, August 20 there will be a 48-hour live stream summit. Go to  You can get a free app if you want. The event is called “THE MOMENT OF TRUTH.”  It is invitation only. All fifty states will have someone reporting on the happenings of their specific state — their policies, their actions, and their stance on voter integrity. War horses, we must fix 2020 so we can go FORWARD! We must remove all machines and go back to paper ballots, timely voting guidelines, and hand counting. We will hear from Lance Wallnau from Dallas, Texas, and Hank Kunneman from Omaha, Nebraska.

If you are a leader of a church or fellowship, please open your doors for TOGETHER listening and praying. Truth will be revealed on what is INSIDE the machines that are being used to count our votes. How they can be and are being used to change our elections into selections. There is also an electronic device, right here in Alabama, being used by the name of ERIC. It has to do with voter’s registration information. War horses, this needs to go! My understanding of MOMENT OF TRUTH SUMMIT being held in Springfield, Missouri, is that the last two hours of this summit will walk us through how to put our shoulder to the wheel and move into action.
