Son of Shelemiah. He was sent to Jeremiah the prophet, by Zedekiah king of Judah, to ask Jeremiah to pray for the people of Judah, to inquire of the Lord for them (Jer. 37:3); in Jeremiah 38:1 he is called Jucal.
Meta. The inherent belief of the will or ruling ego of the awakening consciousness (Zedekiah the king), that the inner I AM, Jehovah, Christ, is mighty and is fully able to deliver the individual from the inharmonies into which he has fallen because of his not being loyal to Principle. The idea expressed in the name Jehucal is: I can do what I will to do because Jehovah, I AM, Christ in me, is able to do all things; in other words, I can because I AM (Jehovah is able, Jehovah is I can). The will has learned much through bitter experiences. Zedekiah the king had terrible reverses because he was not true to God. He knew the divine law, but he did not depend upon it for his defense. He made an alliance with Egypt (darkness) that weakened his hold on spiritual resources, and he was threatened with entire loss of his throne and dominion. In such times of deep trial (the result of depending on outer means of help instead of looking to God and doing His will) the inherent belief in the almightiness of Spirit to redeem and to save springs up in consciousness and is sent by the will (king, or executive power of mind) to Jeremiah (spiritual faith and sight) to inquire of the Lord--to seek a way out. But full deliverance cannot come until the will becomes centered in the will of the I AM and works in harmony with the divine law of right, of love, and of Truth.
