Metaphysical meaning of Bithynia (mbd)
Bithynia, b;-thyn'-;-å (Greek)--violent precipitation.
Meta. Mysia means criminal, and Bithynia means violent precipitation. Under the guidance of the Lord the redeeming power of Spirit is not set into action in these dark states of consciousness until neighboring thought centers that are more or less awakened to Truth have been spiritually strengthened.
This dark state of consciousness that Bithynia represents is characterized by its strong tendency to act hastily and impulsively, in a headlong manner. without any forethought, with undue vehemence, force, and lack of reverence and respect (violent precipitation). Peter names the "elect" who are sojourners in Bithynia as some of those to whom his first epistle was written. This shows that later the Truth must have been preached in that place, or state of consciousness, and must have been accepted by some of its inhabitants (thought people) .
