Genesis 40:16 (b) This is a picture of the death of the baker. It typifies the absence of life, health, strength and vigor.

Leviticus 13:3 (c) We may consider this as a type of the absence of life, nutriment and power. It fits in with the picture of leprosy as a type of sin and death to GOD.

Ecclesiastes 9:8 (c) By this we may understand the purity and the beauty of the life of that one who walks with GOD in righteousness and godliness.

Song of Solomon 5:10 (c) In this way we may understand the sinless character of the Lord JESUS CHRIST in all His perfection. He was stainless, spotless, harmless and holy.

Isaiah 1:18 (a) The Blood of the Lord JESUS CHRIST removes all the stain of sin that is on the soul, and all the record of sin that is in the book.

Daniel 7:9 (b) Here is a beautiful type of the holiness of the Judge in whom is no spot nor shadow of turning. All His decisions are true, equitable, right and without prejudice. (See also Daniel 12:10).

Joel 1:7 (b) The prophet is expressing his great sorrow because his people have been spoiled and robbed by the invading enemy. Nothing is left of the beauty or the wealth of Israel. The enemy has taken it all.

Zechariah 1:8 (b) It is generally thought among Bible students that the white horse represents famine in some cases, and power in other cases. In this passage, it seems to represent the famine that follows war, pestilence and drought. (See also Zechariah 6:6).

John 4:35 (b) The picture used by our Lord represents the culmination of the life of the sinner, wherein he is ready for the judgment, having run a full course of rebellion against GOD. It indicates also the preparation of a sinner's heart for judgment through the years in which he lived in his sins. It may represent also the sorrow, disappointment, ill health and other such troubles that prepare him for the grave. During all these times he has perhaps read Gospel literature, been prayed for by his friends, and heard sermons which declared the Gospel. All of these things working together have prepared the sinner for the reaping. The Lord indicates that he is ready now for the Gospel, so that he will meet and trust the Saviour when CHRIST is preached.

Revelation 1:14 (a) This white hair indicates that the Lord JESUS is the Judge who is the Ancient of Days. He has had centuries of experience and therefore has knowledge and understanding more than others. He is the Eternal Judge, with omnipotent power.

Revelation 6:2 (b) Some Bible students believe that this represents the Lord JESUS going forth with power to conquer. Others believe it represents the power of famine which conquers men of all ages and positions in life.

Revelation 6:11 (b) These are evidently the robes of righteousness, pure and stainless, which are given to the saints of GOD because they are washed in the Blood of the Lamb. This is quite evidently the meaning found in Revelation 19:8.

Revelation 20:11 (c) No doubt we are to understand that this Throne of GOD was not stained in any way by prejudice, injustice, unrighteousness or bribery. The judgments issued from it will be perfect in every aspect.
