Metaphysical meaning of Abagtha (mbd)
Abagtha, a-bag'-thå (Pers.)--happy; prosperous.
One of the seven eunuchs, or chamberlains, who served in the palace of Ahasuerus, king of Persia (Esther 1:10).
Meta. A eunuch, in consciousness, represents a thought from which the capacity to increase life and its forms has been eliminated. The chamberlain, in this instance, is a keeper of the king's bedchamber. Abagtha therefore represents a pure, happy, prosperous thought guarding and ministering to the king (the will). This thought is not spiritual (Abagtha was not of Israel), but it is of the outer realm, or realm of phenomena. The Medes and Persians are thought to have been descended from Japheth (one of the sons of Noah), who typifies the intellect or reason. The thoughts that they signify therefore belong to the mental and the psychic in man. Seven signifies perfection or fullness on the natural plane of consciousness.
