Words paint pictures. But what picture they paint depends not only on the speaker but also on the listener. Unless we listen very carefully we can get a fragmented or jumbled or distorted picture.

Like a television transmission, the picture is only as good as the receiver. In this case, the receiver is in the head of the listener.

The picture is received through the ears and is projected onto the mind. But if our ears (our receivers) are not tuned correctly, then our minds receive a faulty image.

Do you know why some people never get filled with the Holy Spirit? They have never heard enough words to produce the correct image in their minds and hearts.

Do you know why some people never get healed? Because they have simply never gotten the picture...they have never seen the Lord Jesus walk down inside them, take up that disease, bear it on His own back, and walk away with it.

If they could ever get that picture down on the inside of them, they would realize, "Glory to God, it's gone. I don't have it anymore. I'm healed!" And they would be.

Words paint pictures. Many people are constantly in turmoil because we Christians have painted the wrong picture for them. We have not instructed them in line with the Word of God.

People want to receive the Holy Ghost. And we give them confusing and contradictory word pictures. We paint them the wrong image, and get them doing the wrong thing.

This happens all because somebody is saying words to them, utilizing that law over them incorrectly, giving them the wrong mental picture. Because of this they go about trying to receive in the wrong way. And neither of us understands why it isn't "working."
