Metaphysical meaning of Megiddo (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Megiddo (mbd)
Megiddo, me-gid'-do (Heb.)--place of many organisms; place of troops, i. e., for predatory incursions; crowded place; rendezvous; place of great abundance; most fortunate place.

A royal city of the Canaanites that was captured by Joshua (Josh. 12:21). It was in Taanach by the waters of Megiddo that Sisera was overthrown, according to Judges 5:19. It was at Megiddo that King Ahaziah of Judah died, after he had been smitten by Jehu (II Kings 9:27); and it was there that Pharaoh-necoh, king of Egypt, slew Josiah, king of Judah (II Kings 23:29).

Meta. The gathering together of the hordes of error thoughts in consciousness (which sometimes seem to be countless) to make war against the truer and higher thoughts and ideals of the individual (place of many organisms, place of troops, i. e., for predatory incursions, rendezvous). If the higher thoughts are not true to their spiritual ideals they are sometimes overcome by these errors, as is suggested by the metaphysical significance of the kings of Judah who were slain at Megiddo, yet it is really a most fortunate place, because it affords an excellent opportunity for the individual to obtain a great and sweeping victory over error (Sisera and his hosts were defeated there), and thus to bring forth precious fruit (place of great abundance) for growth in righteousness and Truth.
