Color is caused by vibrations of light, similarly as sound is caused by vibrations of air. There is a unique relationship between the two causing a specific color to correspond to a particular note in music. The subject is too abstruse to enlarge further upon here. This brief introduction, which is certainly not exhaustive of the meaning of colors through Scripture, is simply an enhancement, adornment of their innate vibrations. All colors are dependent upon light. My hope is for you to be encouraged to research the subject further.
Every day we wear colors resonating frequencies even when we are not cognizant of their language. When we worship with flags or other worship instruments, the colors resonate frequencies. Even though, as human beings, we may see the some of the range of the colors, we cannot physically hear the sound of color frequencies. All truly genuine and authentic worship frequencies are received in heaven.
Definition of Light: 1. Something that makes things visible or affords illumination: All colors depend on light. In other words: No Light No Color. Without Light – the Light of YESHUA, there is no color, in essence there would be no variation in the color of our skin. Humans did not decide to color their skin, God did. And I wonder about the people who decide GOD made a mistake by giving one person a different skin color than another. Perhaps it is not wisdom to criticize or condemn GOD’s decisions.
