The blood of Jesus was shed for and represents the forgiveness of sin.
~ Bow: (rainbow) KJV Genesis 9:13. I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. 14.

I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.

Thou mayest not eat within thy gates the tithe of thy corn, or of thy wine, or of thy oil, or the firstlings of thy herds or of thy flock, nor any of thy vows which thou vowest, nor thy freewill offerings, or heave offering of thine hand: KJV Isaiah 36:17. Until I come and take you away to a land like your own land, a land of corn and wine, a land of bread and vineyards. KJV Deuteronomy 14:23. And thou shalt eat before the Lord thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the Lord thy God always. KJV Psalms 4:77. Thou hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased. KJV Psalms 78:24. And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven. KJV Genesis 41:49. And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much, until he left numbering; for it was without number. KJV Hosea 2:8. For she did not know that I gave her corn, and wine, and oil, and multiplied her silver and gold, which they prepared for Baal. KJV Hosea 7:14. And they have not cried unto me with their heart, when they howled upon their beds: they assemble themselves for corn and wine, and they rebel against me. Corn was used as an offering to God. God uses the promise of corn as an illustration of the care he gives His people. Corn is also used as tithe. People also used corn as an offering to false gods, a sign of rebellion
~ Crown: KJV Leviticus 21:12. Neither shall he go out of the sanctuary, nor profane the sanctuary of his God; for the crown of the anointing oil of his God is upon him: I am the Lord. KJV 2 Samuel 12:30. And he took their king’s crown from off his head, the weight whereof was a talent of gold with the precious stones: and it was set on David’s head. And he brought forth the spoil of the city in great abundance. KJV 2 Kings 11:12. And he brought forth the king’s son, and put the crown upon him, and gave him the testimony; and they made him king, and anointed him; and they clapped their hands, and said, God save the king. KJV 2 Samuel 14:25. But in all Israel there was none to be so much praised as Absalom for his beauty: from the sole of his foot even to the crown of his head there was no blemish in him. KJV Job 2:7. So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown. KJV Psalms 8:5. For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. KJV Psalms 103:4. Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; KJV Proverbs 14:18. The simple inherit folly: but the prudent are crowned with knowledge. KJV 1 Thessalonians 2:19. For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming? KJV Hebrews 2:9. But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. KJV Proverbs 14:24. The crown of the wise is their riches: but the foolishness of fools is folly. KJV Isaiah 28:1. Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine! KJV Isaiah 28:3. The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trodden under feet: Anointing oil can represent a crown. A crown is a symbol of leadership, such as a king. A crown can also refer to the top of one’s head. A crown can also represent glory, honor, knowledge and rejoicing. A crown can also represent pride.
~ Cup: KJV 1 Corinthians 10:21. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. KJV Psalms 75:8. For in the hand of the Lord there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them. KJV Psalms 116:13. I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of the Lord. KJV Psalms 16:5. The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. KJV Psalms 11:6. Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup. KJV Zechariah 12:2. Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. There are two cups, one of the Lord, the other is the cup of devils. The cup of the Lord is salvation. The cup of devils is fire, brimstone and trembling.
~ Darkness: KJV 2 Peter 2:4. For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; KJV Job 3:4. Let that day be darkness; let not God regard it from above, neither let the light shine upon it. 5. Let darkness and the shadow of death stain it; let a cloud dwell upon it; let the blackness of the day terrify it. KJV Psalms 107:10. Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron; 11. Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High: KJV Psalms 82:5. They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. Darkness is the lack of God’s word, being bound in rebellion that brings on affliction.
~ Darkness: KJV 2 Peter 2:4. For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; KJV Psalms 82:5. They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. KJV Psalms 88:6. Thou hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps. KJV Psalms 107:10. Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron; 11. Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High: KJV Luke 1:79. To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace. Darkness is representation of spiritual chains. Darkness represents a lack of understanding, rebellion and the pit of death.
~ Daughter: KJV Isaiah 62:11. Behold, the Lord hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. KJV Jeremiah 6:2. I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman. KJV Micah 4:8. And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem. KJV Zephaniah 3:14. Sing, O daughter of Zion; shout, O Israel; be glad and rejoice with all the heart, O daughter of Jerusalem. KJV Zechariah 9:9. Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass. KJV Acts 2:17. And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: KJV Joel 2:28. And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: KJV Acts 21:9. And the same man had four daughters, virgins, which did prophesy. KJV Zechariah 2:10. Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord. KJV 2 Corinthians 6:18. And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. KJV Psalms 137:8. O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth thee as thou hast served us. KJV Hosea 4:13. They sacrifice upon the tops of the mountains, and burn incense upon the hills, under oaks and poplars and elms, because the shadow thereof is good: therefore your daughters shall commit whoredom, and your spouses shall commit adultery. KJV Zechariah 2:7. Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon. KJV Malachi 2:11. Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of the Lord which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god. KJV 2 Kings 23:10. And he defiled Topheth, which is in the valley of the children of Hinnom, that no man might make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire to Molech. A daughter can refer to Zion, those that follow God. Daughters may also refer to people with the gift of prophecy. There are also daughters that refer to those that rebel against god.
~ Day: KJV Numbers 14:34. After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise. KJV Ezekiel 4:4. Lie thou also upon thy left side, and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel upon it: according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon it thou shalt bear their iniquity. 5. For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. 6. And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year. KJV 2 Peter 3:8. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. A spiritual day can be a literal year or a thousand years.
~ Devil: KJV Leviticus 17:7. And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils, after whom they have gone a whoring. This shall be a statute for ever unto them throughout their generations. KJV Deuteronomy 32:16. They provoked him to jealousy with strange gods, with abominations provoked they him to anger. 17. They sacrificed unto devils, not to God; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not. KJV Matthew 8:16. When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick: KJV Matthew 8:28. And when he was come to the other side into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. KJV Matthew 10:7. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. 8. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. KJV Mark 1:34. And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him. KJV Mark 16:9. Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils. KJV 1 Timothy 4:1. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2. Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron. KJV Hebrews 2:14. Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; KJV James 2:19. Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. KJV Jude 1:9. Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee. KJV Revelation 12:9. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. KJV Revelation 20:2. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, KJV Revelation 20:10. And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. The devil demands sacrifices, has the ability to posses people but the devils can be cast out. The devil has his own doctrine. The devil will be spiritually bound for 1000 years and will be cast into the lake of fire along with his followers.
~ DEVOURED Strong’s Ref. # 2719 Pronounced kat-es-thee’-o from GSN2596 and GSN2068 (including its alternate); to eat down, i.e. devour (literally or figuratively): KJV Isaiah 24:6 Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left. KJV Jeremiah 2:30 In vain have I smitten your children; they received no correction: your own sword hath devoured your prophets, like a destroying lion.
~ Dew: KJV Numbers 11:8. And the people went about, and gathered it, and ground it in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans, and made cakes of it: and the taste of it was as the taste of Fresh oil. 9. And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell upon it. KJV Deuteronomy 32:1. Give ear, O ye heavens, and I will speak; and hear, O earth, the words of my mouth. 2. My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass: KJV Psalms 133:3. As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore. KJV Proverbs 3:20. By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew. 21. My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion: Manna fell down from Heaven with the evening dew. Speech, knowledge and eternal life are also represented as dew.
~ Dove KJV Matthew 3:16. And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:17. And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. KJV Luke 3:22. And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased. KJV Mark 1:10. And straightway coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon him: Dove = Spirit of God
~ Eyes: KJV Genesis 3:5. For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. KJV Genesis 6:8. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. KJV Psalms 17:8. Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, KJV Psalms 19:8. The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes. KJV Psalms 26:3. For thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth. KJV Psalms 146:8. The Lord openeth the eyes of the blind: the Lord raiseth them that are bowed down: the Lord loveth the righteous: KJV Proverbs 5:21. For the ways of man are before the eyes of the Lord, and he pondereth all his goings. KJV Isaiah 32:3. And the eyes of them that see shall not be dim, and the ears of them that hear shall hearken. KJV Isaiah 35:5. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. KJV 2 Kings 6:17. And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. Satan used the temptation of the eyes that allowed sin into the world. God uses eyes as a symbol to show His concern and connection to His people. Eyes are used as a symbol to show enlightenment.
~ Four: KJV Ezekiel 1:14. And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning. 15. Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces. 16. The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel. 17. When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not when they went. KJV Daniel 3:25. He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God. The number four represents a connection between man and God? On e of references to the number 4 in Ezekiel is the 4 wheels. Notice that one wheel is upon the earth. That would leave 3 in Heaven. A connection between Heaven and earth?
~ FOWLS KJV Genesis 7:14. They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort. KJV Proverbs 6:5. Deliver thyself as a roe from the hand of the hunter, and as a bird from the hand of the fowler. KJV Psalms 91:3. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. KJV Psalms 124:7. Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. KJV Proverbs 27:8. As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place. A bird or a fowl represents a person often in turmoil, facing a trial.
~ FRUIT KJV Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, KJV Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. KJV Psalms 127:3 Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. KJV Jeremiah 17:10 I the Lord search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. KJV 2 Kings 19:30 And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall yet again take root downward, and bear fruit upward Fruit is used to describe people that are converted and the work they do to reach out to help others.
KJV Genesis 37:33 And he knew it, and said, It is my son’s coat; an evil beast hath devoured him; Joseph is without doubt rent in pieces. KJV Leviticus 10:2 And there went out fire from the Lord, and devoured them, and they died before the Lord. Devoured = eat up, destroy
~ Gold: KJV Psalms 119:72 The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver. KJV Psalms 119:127 Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold. KJV Proverbs 8:10 Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. It is simple to see that gold is used to represent the word of God and His commandments.
~ GROUND KJV Isaiah 30:23. Then shall he give the rain of thy seed, that thou shalt sow the ground withal; and bread of the increase of the earth, and it shall be fat and plenteous: in that day shall thy cattle feed in large pastures. KJV Isaiah 44:3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring: KJV Hosea 10:12. Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you. KJV Zechariah 8:12 For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things. KJV Luke 8:15. But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience. Good ground bares the Spirit of God and aids in the growth of those that the substances that nourish people both physically and spiritually.
~ Hot: KJV Exodus 32:10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation. KJV Deuteronomy 9:19 For I was afraid of the anger and hot displeasure, wherewith the Lord was wroth against you to destroy you. But the Lord hearkened unto me at that time also. KJV Psalms 6:1 O Lord, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure. The word hot appears to be associated with feelings such as displeasure and anger. As popular as the word hot can be, it is not often used in the Bible.
KJV James 5:14. Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: The oil in the tabernacle was meant to give light to the sanctuary. See light.
~ Jezebel: KJV 1 Kings 16:31 And it came to pass, as if it had been a light thing for him to walk in the sins of Jeroboam the son of Nebat, that he took to wife Jezebel the daughter of Ethbaal king of the Zidonians, and went and served Baal, and worshipped him. KJV 1 Kings 18:4 For it was so, when Jezebel cut off the prophets of the Lord, that Obadiah took an hundred prophets, and hid them by fifty in a cave, and fed them with bread and water.) KJV 1 Kings 18:19 Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s table. The works of Jezebel. She was a daughter of a Gentile king. A worshipper of Baal. She influenced an already corrupt king of Israel and lead the nation further into idol worship. She attempted to assassinate the prophets of God and set up her own prophets of Baal as the religious leaders over Israel.
~ Lamb: KJV Leviticus 4:32. And if he bring a lamb for a sin offering, he shall bring it a female without blemish. KJV Hosea 4:16. For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer: now the Lord will feed them as a lamb in a large place. KJV John 1:36. And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! KJV 1 Peter 1:19. But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Lamb is a sacrifice and sin offering, Jesus the Son of God. A lamb is also a follower of God. ~
~ Lamp: KJV 2 Samuel 22:29. For thou art my lamp, O Lord: and the Lord will lighten my darkness. KJV Psalms 119:105. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. KJV Proverbs 6:23. For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: Lamp gives light for guidance through the word and law of God.
~ Leaven: KJV Matthew 16:11. How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees? 12. Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. KJV Luke 12:1. In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. KJV 1 Corinthians 5:6. Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? 7. Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: 8. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Leaven is false doctrine, unleavened represents truth.
~ Light: KJV Psalms 97:11. Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. KJV Psalms 119:105. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. KJV Psalms 119:129. Thy testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them. 130. The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple. KJV Isaiah 8:20. To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them. KJV Hosea 6:5. Therefore have I hewed them by the prophets; I have slain them by the words of my mouth: and thy judgments are as the light that goeth forth. Light is the word of God, understanding and judgement.
~ Lightning: KJV Exodus 19:16 And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled. KJV Exodus 20:18 And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off. KJV Matthew 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. KJV Matthew 28:3 His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: Just like an approaching storm, lightning announces the fact that something is about to happen. And like a summer rain, the news could be good to one and a disaster to another. That is one meaning for the word lightning in the Bible. There is one more significant application for the word lightning. That is to announce the coming of the Son of man.
~ Lightning: KJV Psalms 97:4. His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled. KJV Revelation 16:18. And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. KJV Psalms 18:14. Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them. KJV Zechariah 9:14. And the Lord shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord God shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south. Arrow = words and arrow = lightning so lightning = words. Lightning enlightens the world, it is the voice and words of God.
~ Lord’s Day: KJV Isaiah 13:6. Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty. 7. Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man’s heart shall melt: 8. And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames. 9. Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. 10. For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine. KJV Isaiah 27:1 In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea. KJV Isaiah 34:8. For it is the day of the Lord’s vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion. 9. And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch. 10. It shall not be quenched night nor day; the smoke thereof shall go up for ever: from generation to generation it shall lie waste; none shall pass through it for ever and ever. Without reservation I would conclude that the Lord’s day is the day of His return.
KJV Mark 6:13. And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.
~ Mountain KJV Exodus 3:12. And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain. KJV Isaiah 11:9. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. KJV Micah 6:2. Hear ye, O mountains, the Lord’s controversy, and ye strong foundations of the earth: for the Lord hath a controversy with his people, and he will plead with Israel. KJV 2 Chronicles 18:16. Then he said, I did see all Israel scattered upon the mountains, as sheep that have no shepherd: and the Lord said, These have no master; let them return therefore every man to his house in peace. KJV Amos 6:1. Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came! God uses a mountain to represent His throne, or a belief in Him. A mountain represents a false religion or belief.
~ Naked: KJV Genesis 2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. KJV Genesis 3:7 And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons. KJV Genesis 3:10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself. KJV Genesis 3:11 And he said, Who told thee that thou wast naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shouldest not eat? KJV Isaiah 47:3. Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man. KJV Ezekiel 16:36. Thus saith the Lord God; Because thy filthiness was poured out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children, which thou didst give unto them; KJV Nahum 3:5. Behold, I am against thee, saith the Lord of hosts; and I will discover thy skirts upon thy face, and I will shew the nations thy nakedness, and the kingdoms thy shame. In just a few verses we see nakedness go from being natural to a sense of shame. Nakedness represents both physical and spiritual shame.
~ Oil KJV Exodus 25:6. Oil for the light, spices for anointing oil, and for sweet incense,
~ Poor: KJV 1 Samuel 2:7 The Lord maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up. KJV Psalms 9:18 For the needy shall not alway be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. KJV Psalms 34:6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. KJV Psalms 140:12 I know that the Lord will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor. KJV Isaiah 29:19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. KJV Matthew 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. To be poor in the sight of God is to be lifted up, protected by God and to hold an open invitation to Heaven. There is quite a difference between the human insight given to the text and the Spiritual interpretation.
~ Rest (death) KJV John 11:11. These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep. 12. Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well. 13. Howbeit Jesus spake of his death: but they thought that he had spoken of taking of rest in sleep. 14. Then said Jesus unto them plainly, Lazarus is dead. Rest represents death.
~ ROCK KJV Deuteronomy 32:4. He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. KJV 2 Samuel 22:2. And he said, The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; 3. The God of my rock; in him will I trust: He is my shield, and the Horn Of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. KJV Psalms 18:31. For who is God save the Lord? or who is a rock save our God? A number of verses make it clear that the Bible uses the word rock to represent God. This is true in a lot of cases but we need to keep in mind that Satan is the great deceiver. Satan does this by imitating aspects of God and altering them to give people a false belief to follow. We see that this is also true for the rock. KJV Deuteronomy 32:31. For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges. 32. For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter: 33. Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps. 34. Is not this laid up in store with me, and sealed up among my treasures? KJV Deuteronomy 32:37. And he shall say, Where are their gods, their rock in whom they trusted, Rock = God or a false god
~ Sea before the throne of God: KJV Genesis 1:10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good. KJV Genesis 32:12 And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good, and make thy seed as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude. KJV Jude 1:13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. KJV Isaiah 11:9 They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. KJV Habakkuk 2:14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea. In addition to these two verses we find one more that also points us to other verses, and Jesus Himself. KJV Zechariah 14:8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be. To look at the word “sea” in the Bible one will find that this word is used to describe a number of terms and scenes. The first verse shows sea is used is in the creation story. Many other verses tell us of God’s power and control of the seas. One more reference to the word sea is in a promise given to Abraham where sea represents the offsping of Abraham. Twice the Bible refers to the knowledge of God as the waters of the sea. And there are the verses that put the word sea in reference to the evil people in this world.
~ Seal: KJV Nehemiah 9:38 And because of all this we make a sure covenant, and write it; and our princes, Levites, and priests, seal unto it. KJV Esther 8:10 And he wrote in the king Ahasuerus’ name, and sealed it with the king’s ring, and sent letters by posts on horseback, and riders on mules, camels, and young dromedaries: KJV Job 33:16 Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, KJV John 3:33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. KJV Isaiah 8:16 Bind up the testimony, seal the law among my disciples. KJV Isaiah 29:11. And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: We see that the Bible does mention the seals of kings and nobles being used to authenticate agreements of commands. The Bible also used the word seal in the form of a verb. It is possible to be insured or sealed in the faith of God through the knowledge of God.
~ Seven: KJV Genesis 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. At other times, the number six is used as a number of completion and the number seven as a symbol of release. KJV Deuteronomy 15:12 And if thy brother, an Hebrew man, or an Hebrew woman, be sold unto thee, and serve thee six years; then in the seventh year thou shalt let him go free from thee. KJV Jude 1:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, The number seven is mentioned only once as a number of completion. It s interesting to note that Enoch was the first to be translated to Heaven. The first human ever to be taken back up into Heaven. Could this number be a sign pointing us to the return to Heaven? The release from slavery and the return of the rest that we so long for deep inside of us.
~ Shine: KJV Psalms 119:135. Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; and teach me thy statutes. KJV Proverbs 4:18. But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. KJV Ecclesiastes 8:1. Who is as the wise man? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? a man’s wisdom maketh his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed. KJV Daniel 12:3. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. Shine is to have wisdom, to teach and to be on the right path.
~ Silver KJV Psalms 12:6. The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. 7. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. KJV Psalms 119:72. The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver. Silver = The words of God and the law of God
~ Six: KJV Exodus 20:11. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it. KJV Exodus 31:17. It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. KJV Leviticus 25:3. Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof; KJV Deuteronomy 16:8. Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread: and on the seventh day shall be a solemn assembly to the Lord thy God: thou shalt do no work therein. KJV Joshua 6:3. And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days. KJV Mark 9:2. And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them. We have all hear about how the number six represents man. This may be true to a point, but there are few verses that support that theory. The number six is not even associated in a verse with the creation of man. The number six rather, tends to point towards a preparation. The number six is mentioned time and again in association with the Sabbath.
~ SOWER KJV Isaiah 61:11. For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations. KJV Zechariah 10:9. And I will sow them among the people: and they shall remember me in far countries; and they shall live with their children, and turn again. KJV Jeremiah 31:27. Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man, and with the seed of beast. The works of God are compared to things sown. These verses also show that God sows.
~ Sword: KJV Deuteronomy 33:29. Happy art thou, O Israel: who is like unto thee, O people saved by the Lord, the shield of thy help, and who is the sword of thy excellency! and thine enemies shall be found liars unto thee; and thou shalt tread upon their high places. KJV Psalms 55:21. The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords. KJV Psalms 57:4. My soul is among lions: and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword. KJV Ephesians 6:17. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: KJV Hebrews 4:12. For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Can the Bible be any clearer than this? The sword is the word of God. In Psalms, David explains that the words and the tongue are symbolized by a sword.
~ Testimony KJV Exodus 31:18. And he gave unto Moses, when he had made an end of communing with him upon mount Sinai, two tables of testimony, tables of stone, written with the finger of God. KJV Revelation 19:10. And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. The word of God, His commandments, prophecy.
~ THORNS KJV Proverbs 22:5. Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them. KJV Numbers 33:55. But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell. KJV Judges 2:3. Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you. Thorns are used to represent the sins that people devise to mislead or irritate others.
~ Thunder: KJV 2 Samuel 22:14 The Lord thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered his voice. KJV Psalms 29:3 The voice of the Lord is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: the Lord is upon many waters. There is one line in the Bible that does show that some people will miss the signs that others will hear so clearly. KJV John 12:29 The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered: others said, An angel spake to him. The word thunder is similar to lightening. They do of course mirror one another. Each plays a role in an announcement. Thunder is of course a product of lightning. There is a bit more of a tendency for the word thunder to lean upon an indication of the word of God.
~ TRODDEN KJV Jeremiah 12:10. Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness. KJV Ezekiel 34:18. Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture, but ye must tread down with your feet the residue of your pastures? and to have drunk of the deep waters, but ye must foul the residue with your feet? 19. And as for my flock, they eat that which ye have trodden with your feet; and they drink that which ye have fouled with your feet. KJV Psalms 8:6. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: Trodden means to destroy or foul. Trodden means to have something under your feet. Psalms 8:6 explains that to have something underfoot, is to have dominion over it. When people teach error or false doctrine, they are treading God’s word under foot, because they are presuming to have power over it, thinking they are free to change it.
~ Trumpet: KJV Exodus 19:19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice. It is also used to gather the people. KJV Numbers 10:2 Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps. To announce or warn of a war. KJV Numbers 10:9 And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the Lord your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies. And among other events, the trumpet is used to announce the day of the Lord. KJV Joel 2:1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand; A trumpet is used to announce the presence of God.
~ Under the Earth: KJV Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. In this text we see that people make idols to those things under the earth. KJV Isaiah 14:9 Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations. KJV Isaiah 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. 15. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. Under the earth represents false idols and death.
~ WAY KJV Psalms 140:5. The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the way side; they have set gins for me. Selah. Strong’s Ref. # 1870 Pronounced deh’-rek from HSN1869; a road (as trodden); figuratively, a course of life or mode of action, often adverb: KJV Psalms 142:3. When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me. KJV Psalms 143:8. Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee. KJV Proverbs 1:15. My son, walk not thou in the way with them; refrain thy foot from their path: KJV Proverbs 2:13. Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; The way represents a path of life, or the direction one’s life is going. Physically a way is a road.
~ White Horse KJV Revelation 19:11. And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. KJV Revelation 19:14. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. The white horse represents Christ
~ Wine KJV Deuteronomy 32:31. For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges. 32. For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter: 33. Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps. KJV Isaiah 28:7. But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment. 8. For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean. KJV Hosea 9:1. Rejoice not, O Israel, for joy, as other people: for thou hast gone a whoring from thy God, thou hast loved a reward upon every cornfloor. 2. The floor and the winepress shall not feed them, and the new wine shall fail in her. KJV Isaiah 65:8. Thus saith the Lord, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants’ sakes, that I may not destroy them all. KJV Joel 1:5. Awake, ye drunkards, and weep; and howl, all ye drinkers of wine, because of the new wine; for it is cut off from your mouth. Wine is to stumble and fall on false preaching, to put one’s faith in a false god. There are two types of wine. The wine that makes one drunk and impairs the judgment and the new wine that is unfermented.
~ Wings: KJV Exodus 19:4. Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself. KJV Psalms 17:8. Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, KJV Psalms 63:7. Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. KJV Matthew 23:37. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! God uses the word wing to illustrate His concern for His people. The protection He is willing to provide and the gifts we should accept.
~ WITHERED KJV Isaiah 40:7. The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit of the Lord bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass. KJV Psalms 102:10. Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down. 11. My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass. KJV Jonah 4:7. But God prepared a worm when the morning rose the next day, and it smote the gourd that it withered. 8. And it came to pass, when the sun did arise, that God prepared a vehement east wind; and the sun beat upon the head of Jonah, that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said, It is better for me to die than to live. Wither = what happens to people that have trouble facing a trial
