The two kingdoms of providence and grace are what
we are all very nearly interested in, and therefore are concerned
to acquaint ourselves with, all our temporal affairs being in a
necessary subjection to divine Providence, and all our spiritual
and eternal concerns in a necessary dependence upon divine grace;
and these two are represented to us in this chapter—the former by
a vision, the latter by a type. Here is, I. God, as King of
nations, ruling the world by the ministry of angels, in the vision
of the four chariots, ver.
1-8. II. God, as King of saints, ruling the church by
the mediation of Christ, in the figure of Joshua the high priest
crowned, the ceremony performed, and then explained concerning
Christ, ver. 9-15.
