Metaphysical meaning of Ir (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Ir (mbd)
Ir, ir (Heb.)--confluence; flowing together; welding; kneading; cementing; metropolis; city; encampment; watcher; watchtower; vision; heat; anger; wrath.

A Benjamite, father of Shuppim and Huppim (I Chron. 7:12). Inverse 7, Iri.

Meta. The flowing together and unifying (welding, cementing) of thoughts that are similar in character, to form a consciousness (city, metropolis) of watchfulness, of waiting on God and keeping the mind's eye centered on that which is high and spiritual, that a keen insight into Truth may be realized (watcher, watchtower, vision). Jesus said, "Take ye heed, watch and pray:... And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch" (Mark 13:33, 37).

By continually looking within to Spirit as our light, our all, the true Christ vision or insight into Truth is opened to us. Without this vision, without spiritual understanding, and a keen foresight into the workings of the law, the law is not kept and error results (heat, anger, wrath), hence there is no sure reaping of abiding good (see Prov. 29:19).
