Metaphysical meaning of Harhaiah (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Harhaiah (mbd)
Harhaiah, här-ha'-iah (Heb.)--ardor of Jehovah; zeal of Jah; glowing of Jehovah; heat of the Lord; Jehovah's anger.

Note: The root idea of the word Harhaiah comes from a verb meaning "to be kindled, to burn, to glow"; the meaning of the word has become restricted to anger. Primarily the idea is related to any burning ardor that fires one, or kindles to zeal over anything whatsoever.

Father of Uzziel, a goldsmith, who helped to repair Jerusalem's wall (Neh. 3:8).

Meta. Zeal.

There is still, at this phase of man's unfoldment, a belief in God as a God of wrath, as one who takes vengeance in a personal way on those who sin against Him. Truth students understand that all inharmony is the outworking of divine law in the lives of those persons who do not think and act in harmony with the law.

It means much for man to get entirely away from the thought that there is an anger side to God. Only a clear understanding that God is principle and not a person with outer shape like man, a knowledge of the great law that continually works in the affairs of men, will enable one fully to realize the truth.
