Metaphysical meaning of Ashbea (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Ashbea (mbd)
Ashbea, ash-be'-å (Heb.)--l adjure; I swear; an adjuration; an oath; man of Baal.

Either a man of Judah or a place in Judah (I Chron. 4:21).

Meta. The l, in man's spiritually awakening consciousness, appealing earnestly and solemnly to God, the All-Good, and declaring its highest concept of Truth.

Man of Baal is a possible interpretation of the name Ashbea, but a doubtful one. If this interpretation stands, the significance of Ashbea takes on the nature of an outer or formal prayer--that of beseeching and supplicating a personal God. (Baal refers to a belief in the outer formed world as real, hence an outer God with personal form. See BAAL.)

When an individual knows the Truth he ceases to pray to a far-away personal God; instead he acknowledges the spiritual reality that lies back of all manifestation, and he affirms his own good joyously. Thus he demonstrates abundantly.
