Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Psalm 34:8 (a) By this is represented the affectionate love of the Christian for the Lord Himself. The believer seeks to appropriate as much as his heart and mind can hold. It is one of those indescribable experiences which cannot be explained. You may taste an orange, and know at once what it is, but you cannot explain it to another. So the sweetness of knowing CHRIST can only be experienced by each individual himself.
Psalm 119:103 (a) This picture represents the blessed effects upon the heart and soul of believing and loving the Word of GOD.
Song of Solomon 2:3 (c) Here is described the complete satisfaction of the believer's heart when he appropriates GOD's provisions for his life.
Luke 9:27 (a) This unusual expression is used to describe the strange experience of the consciousness of approaching death. (See also Matthew 16:28; Mark 9:1; John 8:52).
Luke 14:24 (b) Our Lord gives a solemn warning here to unsaved people, and to hypocrites. They will never have any experience whatever of the blessings of salvation here, nor of the presence of GOD hereafter.
Colossians 2:21 (b) We are being warned to stay entirely away from the pleasures of the world lest the slightest experience with them entice us to seek more of them.
Hebrews 2:9 (a) Our Lord deliberately partook of the experience of death. It did not happen to Him. It was not by accident. It was deliberately planned.
Hebrews 6:4 (b) This is a description of the experience of the unsaved sinner when he is brought under the power of the Gospel. The Holy Spirit deals with his soul, and the things of eternal life are made vivid to him. After such an experience, the person described in this passage turns away and refuses to accept GOD's message, either about Himself, or about the Saviour.
1 Peter 2:3 (b) The Christian has received a little foretaste of the blessings of Heaven, and this makes him hungry for more. GOD gives us glimpses here of the glory that is to follow. We only get crumbs here, but the full loaf will be given when We see His face.
