Metaphysical meaning of Noadiah (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Noadiah (mbd)
Noadiah, no-a-di'-ah (Heb.)--Jehovah points out; Jehovah convenes; with whom Jehovah meets; Jah assembles; met by Jehovah. a Son of Binnui, a Levite, one of those who were given charge of the gold and silver and vessels of the house of God that were brought back to Jerusalem from Babylon (Ezra 8:33). b A prophetess who sought to hinder Nehemiah from proceeding with the rebuilding of Jerusalem's wall (Neh. 6:14).

Meta. The attracting, unifying power of the Christ love (Jah assembles, Jehovah convenes, with whom Jehovah meets) as expressing in the religious consciousness of man. (The first Noadiah mentioned was of the Levites, and was one of those who were given charge of the silver, gold, and vessels of the house of God.)

The other Noadiah, a false prophetess who sought to intimidate Nehemiah, and so to hinder the rebuilding of Jerusalem's wall, is this same unifying power of love, but expressing in the carnal phase of the soul consciousness in the individual. Because of the self-condemnation that exists in the human, unredeemed soul, it takes on fear thoughts that work destructively instead of constructively in the regeneration of soul and body. Any great outpouring of Spirit into the consciousness of man always exposes lesser, error thoughts that are ripe for being put out of consciousness entirely, and gives new life and strength to true ideals and their activities.
