Metaphysical meaning of Joshah (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Joshah (mbd)
Joshah, jo'-shah (Heb.)--whom Jehovah lets dwell; Jehovah establishes; Jehovah shall stand out; Jah exists in being.

Son of Amaziah, a prince of the tribe of Simeon (I Chron. 4:34-41).

Meta. A ruling thought in the phase of the awakening consciousness of man that is attentive and receptive to higher spiritual ideals (Simeon). This thought, which belongs to the spiritually receptive phase of man's consciousness, is established by Jehovah (Jehovah establishes) in the deeper realms of substance and life (indicated by flocks and pasture) in the organism. Here it aids in overcoming the ignorant, carnal ideas of life and substance. (The descendants of Simeon overcame the Meunim and the descendants of Ham, and "dwelt in their stead; because there was pasture there for their flocks.")
