What caught my attention in this passage, and led to the Lord opening up my understanding of it, is the detail of Jehu's driving. This is seemingly an insignificant historical tidbit. But the point of it is that the people watching could tell it was Jehu coming while he was still a long ways away. They knew who it was before he even came close! Hallelujah! Now what does that remind you of except the Second Coming?
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Mt 24:30
And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Lu 21:27
Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. Re 1:7
So the way Jehu drives is not just some trivial tidbit, but a vital clue that this entire story has end time meaning. The story continues through chapter 9 and into chapter 10 up to verse 28, where it says:
Thus Jehu destroyed Baal out of Israel. 2 Ki 10:28
Here are some other points of comparison between Jehu's Wild Ride and The Second Coming.
