Metaphysical meaning of Mirmah (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Mirmah (mbd)
Mirmah (A.V., Mirma), mir'-mah (Heb.)--deceit; fraud; perverse; full of guile; wicked; cast down; fallen; height; a high place, i. e., one consecrated to idolatry.

Son of Shaharaim, a Benjamite, a chief (I Chron. 8:10).

Meta. In Ephesians 6:12 we read about "spiritual . . . wickedness in the heavenly places"--the higher realms of consciousness in man. Paul, in II Corinthians 11:13-15, speaks about "false apostles, deceitful workers, fashioning themselves into apostles of Christ." Then he goes on: "And no marvel; for even Satan fashioneth himself into an angel of light. It is no great thing therefore if his ministers also fashion themselves as ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works."

Mirmah refers to one of these wicked, or untrue, thoughts. It really belongs to the adverse or satanic phase of man's consciousness, but has gotten over into the higher state of mind in the individual and is posing there as a true ideal.

It seems that when new inspiration and illumination come to one, subconscious errors are apt to be revived, and apparently lifted up and glossed over by the light, along with the resurrection of good that takes place. It is thus in the case of the thought that Mirmah signifies. His parents, Shaharaim and Hodesh, bespeak a great illumination in consciousness that reaches to the very depths of the soul. Mirmah, meaning deceit, fraud, height, is a deceptive, error thought that has been raised to expression along with the good and the true ideals by this illumination, instead of being recognized and denied entirely out of consciousness.
