Metaphysical meaning of Gur (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Gur (mbd)
Gur, gûr (Heb.)--turn aside; sojourn; dwell; stranger; foreigner; gather together; assemble; suckling; whelp; cub.

A place near Ibleam, where Ahaziah, king of Judah, was smitten by the men of Jehu (II Kings 9:27).

Meta. "The ascent of Gur, which is by Ibleam," signifies a going up to victory (Ibleam means victory of the people). It was here that Ahaziah the wicked king of Judah was slain by Jehu's men. Jehu means Jehovah is He. The consciousness that I AM, Jehovah, eternally exists in us as our foundation Truth and overcoming power puts to naught the error rulings of the will guided by sense desires and by selfish, material thoughts, such as King Ahaziah suggests.

Gur represents a sojourning, or dwelling, abiding, in the truth that Jehovah is the one omnipresent king and ruling power. This is the place of overcoming realization, and it leads up to victory.
