Exodus 25:33 (c) The almond on the golden candlestick in the tabernacle is a type of the fruitfulness which will characterize that one who sheds abroad the light of life in his life. Each one who dwells in the holy place, holds forth the Word of Life, and brings light to those who sit in darkness, will be a fruit-bearing Christian. This almond is connected with the flower which indicates the beauty of that life and also with the knop which represents the fullness of the Christian life.

Numbers 17:8 (c) Only Aaron's rod yielded almonds. Israel was to learn from this miracle that the family of Aaron was to be the fruit-bearing family in the service of the GOD of Israel. The other families were to have no part in the priestly ministry. He only, as a type of CHRIST, was to be known as the fruit-bearing priest of GOD. All others would be as intruders and thereby rejected. (See under "FLOWER" and "KNOP.")

Ecclesiastes 12:5 (b) In this place the word represents the bitterness that often comes into the experiences of the aged. The almond plant itself is bitter, but the nut is sweet. Many as they enter old age carry with them bitter memories of former injustices and feel a spirit of hatred toward others.
