The Imagery of Words.

The human mind, and heart (spirit) does not think in “WORDS” but pictures (imagery). Unlike going to a bank and seeing one of those “board readers” that might say, “Welcome to Bank of America....we have a new home loan just for you....” and we read it while waiting for the next teller, the human eyes see this and converts it to imagery. You might see a new home that you have been hoping, or see your self walking into your bank building or something along those lines.

Pro 25:11 A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.

A word fitly spoken paints an image of apples of gold, in pictures of silver. A picture is a image that contains content related to the words that were spoken. In exactly the same way that “WORDS” paint imagery, imagery speak words describing a image.

Hab 2:2 And the LORD answered me, and said, WRITE THE VISION, AND MAKE IT PLAIN UPON TABLES, THAT HE MAY RUN THAT READETH IT.
Hab 2:3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but AT THE END IT SHALL SPEAK, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

God gave the prophet Habakkuk a “VISION” which would have consisted of a image. The Lord told the Prophet to “WRITE” the vision down so that others can read it, and catch the vision themselves.
The Lord then tells him when the time of the vision comes at it's appointed time the “VISION” will “SPEAK” Images speak, and what the image says is what the words used to paint the image. The Church needs to hear, and see what the Lord is doing through visions. The more of the Word of God we have in our hearts the more vision we will have.

Psa 19:1 To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David. THE HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Psa 19:2 DAY TO DAY POURS OUT SPEECH, AND NIGHT TO NIGHT REVEALS KNOWLEDGE.
Psa 19:3 THERE IS NO SPEECH, NOR ARE THERE WORDS, WHOSE VOICE IS NOT HEARD.
Psa 19:4 THEIR VOICE GOES OUT THROUGH ALL THE EARTH, AND THEIR WORDS TO THE END OF THE WORLD. In them he has set a tent for the sun,

The Heavens “DECLARE” (to tell, to speak) the Glory of God. Every day their SPEECH pours out through out all the earth, and to the ends of the world. But in verse 3 it says, “THERE IS NO SPEECH, NOR ARE THERE WORDS, WHOSE VOICE IS NOT HEARD. In other words we are not hearing these words, or speech with our ears on our head, yet they are speaking loudly to our hearts. The Words God used to create the universe are the same words being proclaimed back that describe his Glory which is his Word. It is by the Word of his power everything is being held together.(Heb 1:3) (Col 1:17) Take away the Word of God and everything will dissolve into nothing.

We see imagery with our physical eyes of what God created, and these images seen speak right back to us about it's creator. Not only does the Word of God paint imagery within man, it also creates things that we see on the outside of man from imagery!!!

It is by faith we believe that God “FRAMED” the worlds........

Heb 11:3 By faith we understand that the worlds [during the successive ages] WERE FRAMED (FASHIONED, PUT IN ORDER, AND EQUIPPED FOR THEIR INTENDED PURPOSE) BY THE WORD OF GOD, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible. (AMP)

Images, visions are “FRAMED” by words, in this case the Word of God, which painted a image of what God wanted, and after it was framed it came into existence. How important are visions, and images painted by the Word of God to us? The Bible says where there is no “vision” the people perish. ( Proverbs 29:18)

The word “PERISH” means, “to let go, to loose. to unbind.” If we do not have vision we will let go of what we had a hold of, and just give up.

Gal 3:1 O YOU poor and silly and thoughtless and unreflecting and senseless Galatians! Who has fascinated or bewitched or cast a spell over you, unto whom--RIGHT BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES--JESUS CHRIST (THE MESSIAH) WAS OPENLY AND GRAPHICALLY SET FORTH AND PORTRAYED AS CRUCIFIED?

There are so many scriptures that talk about this it's not funny. This scripture tells us that the Galatian Church had the Word of God proclaimed to them in such a way they should have, right before their eyes have seen Jesus Christ crucified in a vision form. All Christians should have this vision set forth by the Word of God in them. The living active Word of God paint “LIVING” images, not static or un moving life less images!!! Jesus is the "expressed image" of God in us!!!! (Hebrews 1:3)
