Metaphysical meaning of Mysia (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Mysia (mbd)
Mysia, my'-si-å (Gk. fr. Heb.)--beyond bounds; beech land; border land; criminal, abominable.

A district or province of Asia Minor by which Paul passed on one of his missionary journeys (Acts 16:7, 8).

Meta. The meaning of Mysia is beyond bounds, criminal, abominable, and the meaning of Bithynia, the place mentioned with Mysia, is violent precipitation. Under the guidance of the Lord the redeeming power of Spirit is not set into action in these dark states of consciousness until neighboring thought centers that are more or less awakened to Truth have been spiritually strengthened. (Spirit would not allow Paul to teach in these two places at this time. "When they were come over against Mysia, they assayed to go into Bithynia; and the Spirit of Jesus suffered them not.")________________________
