Metaphysical meaning of En-dor (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of En-dor (mbd)
En-dor, en'-dôr (Heb.)--fountain of Dor, fount of the dwelling; fount of the habitation; fount of the generation.

A city of Manasseh from which the Manassites failed to drive the Canaanites (Josh. 17:11). This city was the home of the woman who had a familiar spirit, to whom Saul sent for advice (I Sam. 28:7). According to Psalms 83:9, 10, En-dor seems also to have been the seat of the overthrow of Sisera, and of Jabin, king of Canaan.

Meta. The life faculty in man unified with and activated by generative and psychic sense thought (fount of the habitation, fount of the generation, the home of a woman who had a familiar spirit). As the Israelites, the true, higher thoughts of the individual, grow stronger in the regenerative idea, the Canaanites are gradually driven out; the old beliefs, desires, and habits give up their substance to the establishing of the uplifting, purifying, and restorative ideas of the Christ mind.
