Deuteronomy 32:35 (a) In this way the Lord is indicating that the enemies of GOD will be cut off and die.

Deuteronomy 33:24 (a) By this we learn that the walk of the Godly man shall be a spiritual one filled with the richness and sweetness of GOD's blessings.

Psalm 68:23 (a) This type is used to describe the victory over their enemies of those who walk in fellowship with GOD.

Psalm 94:18 (b) David uses this type to describe his feeling; that he was drifting away from GOD's path.

Ecclesiastes 5:1 (b) By this figure we are admonished to watch the walk and the manner of life.

Isaiah 1:6 (c) The whole person is evidently wicked and vile in GOD's sight. Men are mad in their walk and their thought. The feet represent our walk, the head represents the thought. There is nothing at all in a human being that is acceptable to GOD until we trust JESUS CHRIST and become GOD's children.

Ezekiel 1:7 (b) These are types of the walk of our Lord JESUS CHRIST. The calf is sure-footed and leaves a definite imprint where it steps. So CHRIST JESUS walked in a sure and certain path without sin, and left the imprint of His holiness wherever He went.

Matthew 5:13 (a) Here we find a type of the actions of the world against the professing Christian who claims that he belongs to the Lord, yet shows no proofs of it in his daily life. Neither the world nor the church has any confidence in that man, and refuses to receive his testimony. This truth is also found in John 15:6.

Matthew 18:8 (b) In this way the Lord is telling us that if we want to walk in the ways of the world so that the feet take us astray to the picture show, the tavern, the dance, it is best to cut off that foot so that such desires cannot and will not keep us away from CHRIST. (See also Mark 9:45).

Matthew 22:13 (c) In many places in the Bible what we do, what we say, and how we walk and work are compared to garments or robes. Evidently the teaching in this passage is that this man wanted to be at the king's banquet in his own self-righteousness. Since this self-righteousness comes from the hands (what we do), and from the feet (how we walk), the Lord is indicating how worthless these are by telling the servant to bind him "hand and foot," and to cast him out of His presence.

1 Corinthians 12:15 (b) This is a type of a Christian, any Christian. The Lord is telling us here that no part of the body is independent from the rest of the body. Every Christian is essential to the entire church of GOD. No, believer, no matter how humble or obscure, is overlooked by the Lord, either as to his care or his usefulness.

Hebrews 10:29 (b) Here is a picture of the hatred that some had and some now have toward the person of our Lord JESUS. It is a picture of utter contempt for CHRIST, and a desire to crush Him.

Revelation 10:2 (b) This figure represents the absolute power and authority of our Lord over all nations and His ability to punish all people.
