Metaphysical meaning of Harsha (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Harsha (mbd)
Harsha, här'-sha (Heb.)--artificer; craftsman; worker; magician; enchanter; deaf; dumb; silent.

He was of the Nethinim. His descendants returned from the Babylonian captivity (Ezra 2:52).

Meta. A religious thought in man that tends to the psychical yet seeks to serve God. It is not really receptive to spiritual Truth; it is deaf--meaning not receptive, not responsive. It works in the psychical, or soul, realm; thus it expresses much that seems to be occult, magical, supernatural (magician, artificer, enchanter). This thought belongs to the bond-servant class (Nethinim) in consciousness, and must give way to the true spiritual understanding that comes with the knowledge of divine sonship (see Gal. 4).
