Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
Genesis 49:11 (b) Jacob used this figure to describe the wonderful wealth that would accrue to Judah. It is similar to the statement by Job when he said "I washed my steps in butter." It is a description of great wealth, comfort and blessing.
Proverbs 9:2 (b) Probably this is typical of the sweet experiences of those who feel their own weakness, and then partake of the truths of GOD, as revealed in His precious Word.
Isaiah 55:1 (b) This symbol represents the joy of the Christian life which GOD gives to those who trust JESUS CHRIST, and honor the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 9:17 (b) This may be taken as a type of the new life which GOD does not put into the old nature. The Lord does not try to fix up "the old man." Instead He gives a new birth so that the new-born soul, with a new life and a new nature may enjoy Heaven's blessings.
John 2:3 (c) We may take this wine to represent that peculiar joy and peace which only CHRIST can give to human hearts. The wedding is the sweetest of all human experiences, but even that could not be completely satisfactory unless CHRIST JESUS came to bring the peculiar blessing of Heaven, which only He can give.
Revelation 16:19 (a) This wine represents the wrath of GOD which emanates from His own righteous heart, and is given to His enemies to drink. It is the product of the holy anger of the righteous Judge.
Revelation 17:2 (a) The wine in this case represents the evil practices of the apostate church. The teachings and the practices of this wicked group offers to the rulers of earth and to the great men of the lands pleasures and comforts in their lives of sin and wickedness. The nations receive the false teachings of this evil church which makes it easy to live in every kind of sinfulness, and yet be comforted by the assurance that the church can forgive, and has the power to send the soul to Heaven.
