Water (The Elixir of Life), Wine (Gladdening the Heart of Man) and Milk (The Spiritual Nourishment)

Isaiah 55:1:
Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.

Water: And he {Jesus} said unto me {John}, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely– Revelation 21:6. And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely– Revelation 22:17.  But whosoever drinketh of the water that I {Jesus Christ} shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life– John 4:14.

Wine:  In Psalms 104:15, we read, And wine that maketh glad the heart of man. Wine according to Scripture was given to make the heart glad which is certainly contrary to some beliefs. I have heard alcoholic beverages referred to as liquid entertainment, but of course, excessive drinking is never best (I Timothy 5:23). The wine of Holy Communion initiates a significant milestone event, representing the shedding of Christ’s blood for our sins (Matthew 26:27-28), and as our sins are truly forgiven, our hearts can absolutely and truly be so very glad, and quite thankful for our benefactor who gave so much.

Milk: As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious– I Peter 2:2-3. There is genuine milk within every ounce of God’s scrumptious, healing Word! God is so wonderful to us in so many abounding ways that are, at times, beyond our comprehension, yet we may assuredly know that we have received from God (II Corinthians 9:15, I Peter 1:8). God’s desire for us is that we take Him at His Word, and allow Him and His Son, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, into our lives. Imagine how many spiritually anorexic people there are in the world who are famished for lack of the fulfilling Word, and even in Christendom many are starving themselves, when all along access to the table of life is bountifully prepared with the fulfilling benefit of the nurturing Scriptures.

In Isaiah 55:1 the waters represent our eternal life; the wine represents our complete forgiveness of our sins, giving us daily gladness to enjoy life, and milk represents the wonderful Word of God.” ~LMJ~
