Metaphysical meaning of Baasha (mbd)
Baasha, ba'-a-shå (Heb.)--boldness; offensiveness; bad; vile; loathsome.
King of Israel, and a son of Ahijah, of the house of Issachar. He killed Nadab, son of Jeroboam, and all the rest of the house of Jeroboam, thus fulfilling the prophecy regarding this wicked king (I Kings 15:27-33). But Baasha too was a wicked king, and all his descendants were destroyed later (I Kings 16:3).
Meta. A phase of the will in man (a king always relates to the will) that is aggressive and daring (boldness; of the tribe of Issachar, referring to active zeal). This phase of the will that Baasha represents seeks greater dominion and authority, but, because of being guided by sense consciousness instead of listening to and obeying the voice of the Spirit of wisdom an love, it is offensive, vile, and destructive instead of constructive.
