Metaphysical meaning of Jesse (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Jesse (mbd)
Jesse, jes'-se (Heb.)--upstanding; firm; strong; upright; he will give; Jah exists; Jah is; he who is.

Son of Obed, grandson of Boaz and Ruth, and father of David (Ruth 4:22; I Sam. 16). He was an Ephrathite of Beth-lehem-judah (I Sam. 17:12).

Meta. In the Hebrew the root meaning of the word Jesse is Jah, Jehovah, or I AM, representing eternal existence (Jah exists). When man realizes the eternal existence of I AM, and is firm and strong in this realization, he is in the Jesse state of mind, and out of this state of mind will come God's idea of man, Christ. This is the "shoot," the "fruit" of the root idea that man is the ever living I AM of God (Isa. 11:1). (David, son of Jesse, is representative of the Christ, or of the spiritual seed whence came Jesus Christ, spiritual man expressed and demonstrated.)
