Metaphysical meaning of Geuel (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Geuel (mbd)
Geuel, ge-u'-el (Heb.)--majesty of God; exaltation of God; glory of God; God's lifting up, i.e., salvation, redemption.

A prince, or ruler, of the tribe of Gad, he was the son of Machi, and was one of the twelve men who were sent by Moses to spy out the Promised Land (Num. 13:15).

Meta. A ruling thought in the Gad (power) consciousness in man. Though this thought activity is awakening to a perception of the might and power of God to uplift and redeem the whole organism of man, it is not yet firmly enough established in a consciousness of this truth to be unafraid when "enemies" in the land to be overcome are presented to it. It is still prone to magnify seeming evil and to think that the redemption of the body is too large and complicated a task for man to undertake at present. Some time in the future, after several more incarnations, he may do it, but not now, is the verdict of that which Geuel signifies when only partially awakened, as the case of Geuel indicates. (Geuel was one of those who did not think that the Israelites were able to go up and possess the land. See Numbers 13:31.)
