At Bethel Jacob set up a pillar and poured out a drink offering on it; this indicates that the drink offering is for God’s building (Genesis 35:14a). The drink offering typifies Christ as the One poured out as the real wine before God for His satisfaction. The drink offering also typifies the Christ who saturates us with Himself as the heavenly wine until He and we become one to be poured out for God’s enjoyment and satisfaction and for God’s building (Matthew 9:17; Philippians 2:17; 2 Timothy 4:6). Our pouring ourselves out as a drink offering to God brings in the outpouring of the Spirit for God’s building (Genesis 35:14b). [Outline, Crystallization-Study Genesis (3), msg. 4]

The drink offering was in addition to the basic offerings revealed in Lev. 1–6 (Num. 15:1-10; 28:7-10). The basic offerings are types of various aspects of Christ. The drink offering is a type of Christ as enjoyed by the offerer. Christ as the heavenly wine fills the offerer and even causes him to become wine to God. The apostle Paul became such a drink offering (2 Tim. 4:6) by enjoying Christ in this way, so that he could be poured out as a sacrifice to God upon the believers’ faith through the shedding of his blood. (Phil. 2:17 footnote 1 in Holy Bible Recovery Version)
