Metaphysical meaning of Mahavite (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Mahavite (mbd)
Mahavite, ma'-ha-vite (fr. Heb.)--live messenger; marrowy; preservation of life; living substance.

Eliel the Mahavite was one of David's warriors (I Chron. 11:46).

Meta. A messenger is one who brings tidings; in consciousness a messenger is an enlightening thought.

Marrowy suggests one's most secret and innermost thoughts and tendencies, which can be discerned and brought to light only by Spirit through the spoken word (see Heb. 4:12). Marrowy also refers to the inner riches and substance upon which the soul may feed and be satisfied (Psalms 63:5); and abundant supply for the whole man (Isa. 25:6). To "fear Jehovah, and depart from evil" is "marrow to thy bones" (Prov. 3:7, 8; "refreshing, moistening," margin).

Mahavite, meaning live messenger, marrowy, preservation of life, living substance, signifies the enlightening idea of Spirit--man's all-sufficient life, inspiration, substance of supply--as entering into one's ruling love consciousness (Eliel the Mahavite was a warrior of David's, and David represents love as ruling in man).
