Metaphysical meaning of Gaham (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Gaham (mbd)
Gaham, ga'-ham (Heb.)--flaming; burning; consuming; charring; blackness.

Son of Abraham's brother Nahor, by his concubine Reumah (Gen. 22:24).

Meta. The heat of sense consciousness brought to a climax, a focus, and burning itself out. This is caused by the higher desires (Nahor and Reumah, parents of Gaham) that have been aroused by and accompany the awakening of faith (Abraham) in the individual. Thus a reaction sets in, the whole consciousness revolts against sense beliefs and activities, and a degree of purification is accomplished.
