Additional Links

Exodus 30:25 (c) Probably we may understand by this perfume that the GOD of Heaven gives to His people the strange fragrance of His presence, which distinguishes them from all other people. No one could use this ointment but those in the tabernacle. Those upon whom it was placed, as well as all the articles on which it was spread, were identified as being holy and belonging exclusively to GOD. Those who walk with the Lord and live in His presence do have a heavenly fragrance about them that no religion can give.

Psalm 133:2 (a) By this we understand the gracious fellowship of GOD's people as they dwell together and serve with one another.

Ecclesiastes 10:1 (b) This definitely is a type of the godly and wise life of a devoted Christian. This good reputation may be easily spoiled by some act or attitude of folly which may come into the life of that person.

Song of Solomon 1:3 (a) This beautiful picture represents the soothing and blessed effects of the name of the Lord upon the hungry, weary heart of that one who trusts in CHRIST.

Isaiah 1:6 (c) Probably this may be a picture of human efforts which are made to cover up human sins and failures. It may represent GOD's provision for the sinner.

Matthew 26:7 (c) Perhaps this is a type of the worship and adoration brought to the Lord JESUS because of His loveliness, and because that He is so precious to the heart.
