Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Exodus 23:19 (c) This is a warning against using the precious Word of GOD to injure or destroy that which it should build up and strengthen. The milk is a type of the Word of GOD. The milk should have been used to cause the kid to grow into a large, strong, healthy animal. Instead it was used to destroy the tender, young animal. GOD is telling us that we should not take that which He gives to us for constructive purposes and use it for destructive purposes. Baptism is an example. It was given to the church as a blessing, but has been used to destroy many churches, homes and lives. The heathen also had a custom of sprinkling the broth made in the above manner over their fields in order to make the fields fertile. The Lord condemns this custom of the heathen, and assures His people that blessing on the fields comes from Himself. (See under "KID." Also Exodus 34:26; Deuteronomy 14:21; Deuteronomy 34:26).
Numbers 13:27 (b) This is a type of the multitude of blessings that abounded in the land of Palestine.
Isaiah 55:1 (b) Here we find a type of the sweet richness which awaits the soul who places his faith and trust in the living Lord.
1 Corinthians 3:2 (a) Here is a picture of the simpler truths of the Scripture which most anyone can grasp without particular study and without much help. These truths are contrasted with the deeper and more difficult truths of the Word which are compared to meat. (See also Hebrews 5:13; 1 Peter 2:2).
