Metaphysical meaning of Pekod (mbd)

Metaphysical meaning of Pekod (mbd)
Pekod, pe'-kod (Heb.)--visitation; punishment.

A place in Babylonia (or a name that stands for Babylon) against which both Jeremiah and Ezekiel prophesied (Jer. 50:21; Ezek. 23:23).

Meta. The harvest time of error.

There is a law of sowing and reaping. When error thoughts, fears, and beliefs have been sown in our consciousness they must--unless we discern the Truth and root out the errors by means of our true thoughts, words, and acts--come to fruition, and the harvest time will bring inharmonious experiences of some kind. Under the old thought this harvest time of error was looked upon as a visitation or punishment from the Lord. We now understand it to be but the outworking of some phase of divine law that we ourselves have set into action destructively, through our ignorance, and have left to work out into inharmony in our life.
