Metaphysical meaning of Moserah (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Moserah (mbd)
Moserah (A.V., Mosera), mo-se'-rah (Heb.)--bond; band; fetter; yoke; chain harness: correction: chastisement: discipline; admonition; reproof; example; precept; instruction; learning.

A camping place of the Children of Israel in the wilderness. It was there that Aaron died and was buried, and his son Eleazar became high priest in his stead (Deut. 10:6).

Meta. The seeming trial (chastisement) and bondage (bond, fetter) in which the Christian remains so long as he has only an intellectual comprehension of divine law. To such a one, Hebrews 12:6 reads "whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth" instead of "whom the Lord loves, he disciplines." The latter is the correct rendering, according to the Emphatic Diaglott. Divine love must enter into man's idea of God and the divine law, and must fill his life, that he may find in all correction and discipline of Spirit only joy and delight, and that he may know sickness and sorrow to be the direct result of his own errors. Such unpleasant manifestations will pass away as soon as the errors that caused them are corrected; they are not chastisements sent by God, nor do they come from God. Thus Aaron, symbolizing the intellectual understanding and executive power of divine law, must give way to a higher and more spiritual comprehension of Truth.
