Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
This word in Scripture is sometimes figuratively used, to express the Lord's gracious dealings with his people. Thus (Psalms 81:16) JEHOVAH is said to have fed his people with the finest wheat; meaning, the spiritual and distinguishing blessings he poured out upon them. Hence the consecration of Aaron was with the finest wheat flour. (See Exodus 29:1-2) Hence the meat-offering was of the same. (Leviticus 2:1) The Hebrews called all offerings made by grain, or flour, Mincha. Were not the whole of these offerings with an eye to Christ? Was not Jesus the first of the finest flour? And if the church, while presenting their offerings of the finest flour, with an eye to Christ, were in the appointments of the Lord, may we not, without violence to the original, suppose, that JEHOVAH feeding the people with the finest wheat had an eye to Christ?
