Metaphysical meaning of Adrammelech (mbd)
Adrammelech, a-dram'-me-lech (Heb.) --the majesty of the king; honor of the king; splendor of the king; splendor of Moloch (fire god).

a Son of Sennacherib, king of Assyria (II Kings 19:37; Isa. 37:38). b A god of Sepharvaim (II Kings 17:31).

Meta. A fiery, consuming thought in man. This fiery thought is the offspring of, and destroys, Sennacherib (bramble of destruction), the head of the realm of psychic sense thought, which is represented by the Assyrians. (Adrammelech and his brother Sharezer killed their father, Sennacherib.)

Adrammelech the idol, worship of which was introduced into Samaria by the Sepharites, represents the belief that God (symbolized by the sun) can be discerned and worshiped through the senses; it is the mistaken idea that the psychic, or purely mental soul plane of consciousness, is the source of spiritual understanding and power. Those who hold this belief bring upon themselves fiery trials and experiences, and many of their good and true newborn thoughts (children) are given over to the destroying power of this wrong belief. (Those who worshiped this idol sacrificed their children to it.)
