Amos 5:26-27 But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves. Therefore will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the LORD, whose name is The God of hosts.
Moloch, Chiun and Remphan are all names for the star god, Saturn, whose symbol is a six pointed star formed by two triangles. Saturn was the supreme god of the Chaldeans.
The hexagram was brought to the Jewish people by Solomon when he turned to witchcraft and idolatry after his marriage to Pharaoh's daughter in 922B.C. It became known as the Seal of Solomon in Egyptian magic and witchcraft. David had absolutely nothing to do with the hexagram and that star most certainly did not, in any way, represent God's people. Solomon gave himself up to satanic worship and built altars to Ashtoreth and Moloch (Saturn).
The hexagram faded from Jewish usage for 2,600 years. Then in the 1800’s, in Germany, it was adopted by Mayer Rothchild to mark his house. The six pointed star was used as the Rothchild coat of arms. It is difficult to pin down the date at which the six pointed hexagram star became known as the so-called Star of David. In fact the earliest Jewish application of the symbol outside the Rothchild banking and financial empire is 1873. That was the year that the Magen David was adopted as a Jewish device by the American Jewish Publication Society. It is not even mentioned in the rabbinic literature searches. Other than that fact, no one seems to know when or how the Occult or Satanic star, became the Star of David. What should a Christian or observant Jew have to do with this symbol, NOTHING, absolutely NOTHING. Keep the symbol out of your house. The evidence is overwhelming that it is a cursed symbol which may give demonic ground or license.
The hexagram has remained in use within the occult and is prominent in the rituals and worship of Druids, Freemasons, Astrology, New Age, and Wicca. Witches often have this hexagram symbol, of the so-called Star of David, tattooed on the abdomens or palms of witchcraft initiates.
The so-called Star of David is essentially a hexagram, nothing more, nothing less. There is no Biblical or Jewish evidence that traces this ancient occult symbol with King David of Israel. However, there is evidence that it was used by King Solomon, after he turned to pagan gods and the occult, late in his life. It is a very sobering thought and strong case against OSAS that Solomon’s soul would end up in hell. Here is a man to whom God appeared twice, whose father was King David, who was used by God to write so much scripture, Proverbs, Song of Solomon, and Ecclesiastes.
I Kings 11:4-9 For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, [that] his wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his heart was not perfect with the LORD his God, as [was] the heart of David his father. For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as [did] David his father. Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that [is] before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon. And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice,
The great goal of freemasonry is to rebuild Solomon’s temple – The OCCULT ONE and NOT THE HOLY ONE.
A Masonic book called The Second Mile, an Eastern Star book, reveals that the "six pointed star is a very ancient symbol, and one of the most powerful." The hexagram is used in magic, witchcraft, sorcery and occultism and the casting of zodiacal horoscopes by astrologers. "It was considered to posses mysterious powers."
The six pointed star is used by magicians and alchemists. The sorcerers believed it represented the footprints of a special kind of DEMON called a trued and used it in ceremonies both to call up demons and to keep them away (O. J. Graham, The Six Pointed Star, New Puritan Library, 1988, p.35).
Bill Schnoebelen, a former Satanist, says, "To the sorcerer, the hexagram is a powerful tool to invoke Satan." In fact, the word "hex" -- as to put a "hex" or "curse" on people -- comes from this word.
If you examine the so-called "Star of David," or hexagram, closely, you will discover something astonishing. It has six points, forms six equilateral triangles, and in its interior forms a six sided hexagon -- thus it reveals the number of Satan’ antichrist beast, -- 6 points, 6 triangles, and the 6 sides of the hexagram -- 666 !!!
This ancient occultic figure is also a pagan symbol of sexual union and reproduction. The triangle pointing downward represents the female sexual organ, and the upward pointing triangle represents the male phallus. Joined together in the hexagram, they represent sexual union, to paganism and the occult, the union of the active and passive forces in nature. Thus the hexagram was a part of Satan's original "sex worship" rites and symbols of the sexually oriented rites and ceremonies of BAALISM -- Nimrod and Semiramis -- Easter (Astarte) and Baal -- Venus (Aphrodite) and Bacchus.
David J. Meyer, a former witch and occult practitioner, now editor of The Last Trumpet newsletter and a Christian, declares, "When the male triangle penetrates the female triangle it produces the six-pointed crest of Solomon or hexagram, the most wicked symbol in witchcraft."
The hexagram was used in ancient pagan Egypt as a tool to communicate with the dead. Of course we know they were actually demons, conjured up, posing as the dead. The dead are not able to communicate with the living. Some of the verses of Ecclesiastes are strong on this point such as 3:19-20 and 9:10.
How did this ancient symbol of the occult, and Lucifer, Satan, the devil, find its way to be a symbol of the Jewish people, and become the major symbol today of the Jewish people, even being on the Israeli flag?
The first martyr of the Christian church, Stephen, in his defense before the Sanhedrin, warned the Jewish nation, as he reviewed the history of Israel. (Acts 7:42-43). God's Word warns us, in the prophecy of Amos. (Amos 5:26). This star was undoubtedly the SIX-POINTED STAR -- the star associated with sexual depravity, and whoring after false gods. It is the Hexagram from occult, magic, and necromancy of Egypt! But, how did this figure become popular in Israel?
In one word, the answer is Solomon. Solomon, after he became king of Israel, violated all the specific commands of God to kings, on an unprecedented scale. Those special commandments of God to the kings, which Solomon violated like no other, are found in Deut 17:15-19. There is NO Wonder that the goal of freemasonry is to rebuild Solomon’s temple. 1 Ki 3:1 And Solomon made affinity with Pharaoh king of Egypt, and took Pharaoh's daughter, and brought her into the city of David, until he had made an end of building his own house, and the house of the LORD, and the wall of Jerusalem round about. The influence of the daughter of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, was no doubt considerable, as she was pre-eminent and most exalted among all of all his wives.
Solomon who loved the Lord in the beginning of his reign, turned away from the true path of worship as he grew older. 1 Ki 11:1-2 But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites; Of the nations concerning which the LORD said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their gods: Solomon clave unto these in love.
1 Ki 11:9 And the LORD was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the LORD God of Israel, which had appeared unto him twice,
Solomon worshipped, among other gods, Ashtoreth (Eastarte, Isis, Venus, Aphrodite), Milcom or Molech, and Chemosh. These satanic rituals included human sacrifice, witchcraft, and sexual orgies. Solomon built high places, temples, and altars, for these pagan abominations, for all his foreign wives, and joined them to burn incense and do sacrifice to their gods. It was, without any doubt, Solomon, and NOT David, who adopted the Hexagram, which became known as Solomon's Seal, or Solomon’s Shield. He became a wizard, or consulter of demons, and the walked in forbidden occult powers of darkness, of Lucifer, Satan, the devil. Thus the hexagram became a prominent symbol in ancient Israel which can be traced no farther back than Solomon. He adopted it from the pagan nations around him.
There is no evidence to connect the hexagram with David, his father. There is no reason to believe that David, a man after God's own heart, would ever adopt a Satanic, occult, or pagan symbol for his "shield." But Satan the devil, the chief of liars and deceivers, would certainly love to have you think so! (Rev.12:9; John 8:44).
Why and how did the six-pointed star -- the pagan occult symbol -- become connected with the MODERN state of Israel? It was adopted as the family crest or shield by the Rothschild family during the 19th century. The Rothschilds bought a great deal of property in "Israel," from the Turks and Arabs, and were largest financial supporters of the Zionist movement in the early decades. The influence of the Rothschilds and their heavy financial support of Israel, led the Jewish nation to adopt the so-called "Star of David" as their own symbol as a nation.
As God's people, we should have NO PART in the use of these perverted, corrupt, occult, Luciferian symbols, and everything they represent! They are an abomination in the eyes of our Holy, Almighty God!
This popular Jewish symbol, is not as Jewish as people are led to believe. It is very popular. It appears on many synagogues and as well as on THE NATIONAL FLAG OF ISRAEL. The star symbol IS VERY OLD and was used as a decoration by MANY ANCIENT CULTURES. The oldest known example dates back to the time of Noah, almost 4,400 years ago. However, by NO MEANS is this star the oldest Jewish symbol, any more than it should be considered Jewish at all. The oldest known symbol of Israel, is NOT the falsely so-called Star of David; but, THE BURNING BUSH as mentioned in Exodus. Exo 3:2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.
Though not the oldest of the symbols of Israel, the NEW, soon to be, flag of the Nation of Judah, which will emerge when Jewish people look upon Him whom we have ALL pierced. The NEW FLAG will be the 7 branched candle stand, the gold Menorah on a sky blue background. Some say the burning bush symbolized Israel, A NATION NOT CONSUMED. In spite of many nations trying to annihilate the Jews, God has promised to preserve them and this has proven true in history.
The star of Solomon, or Luciferian star, dates back over 4000 years, and was in many ancient cultures. This is very important because THIS STAR HAS BEEN CONNECTED TO FALSE PAGAN WORSHIP and Moses had a very difficult time getting the people of Israel to forsake this false religion. During the Middle Ages the symbol became connected with MAGIC and protection, along with the pentagram or five-pointed star. The connection with magic DATES MUCH EARLIER THAN THE MIDDLE AGES for both stars. This can easily be proven by a quick study on magic and witchcraft.
The so-called Star of David also called the Shield of David, or Mogen David, in reality, is the Seal of Solomon, when he turned reprobate, Luciferian, and was fully given over to the occult. The STAR OF DAVID IS NOT MENTIONED IN SCRIPTURE.
Though the phrase "Star of David" itself does not appear in the Bible, it is obvious that THERE IS A STAR MENTIONED. ALSO WE SHOULD TAKE SPECIAL NOTE OF TWO TABERNACLES MENTIONED IN SCRIPTURE
There always have been TRUE an FALSE tabernacles. There were TWO TABERNACLES in the wilderness. The true and the false. Notice how the Word of God clearly identifies these two tabernacles and places THE FALSE ONE WITH A STAR.
- THE TRUE - Psa 78:59-60 When God heard this, he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel: So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which he placed among men;
- THE FALSE - Amos 5:25-26 Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel? But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves. THE TABERNACLE OF YOUR MOLOCH AND CHIUN your images, the STAR OF YOUR GOD, WHICH YE MADE TO YOURSELVES.
- Acts 7:42-43 Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of forty years in the wilderness? Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon. THE TABERNACLE OF MOLOCH, AND THE STAR OF YOUR GOD REMPHAN, figures which ye made to worship them..."
- Heb 8:1-2 Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens; A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.
During the LAST TWO CENTURIES the six-pointed star has become a distinct Jewish symbol. One motive was the desire to have a common Jewish identification similar to the Christian cross and Islamic moon god crescent. It is important that we know that it has ONLY BEEN THE PAST TWO CENTURIES that the star has become a distinct Jewish symbol.
Though the Nazis used the star as A BADGE OF SHAME during World War II, it is said the symbol came to represent unity and hope. The reality is that the he Jewish people in Hitler's time were not thinking of unity and hope. They were thinking of SURVIVAL.
It really is sad that a symbol of Satan, witchcraft, magic, and the occult, now days represents the Jewish nation. Today, the falsely so-called Star of David almost has pre-eminence over the God ordained and much older MENORAH, or seven branched candelabrum, as a symbol of Jewish tradition. THE BURNING BUSH is slightly older, by a matter of months, than the Menorah, and BOTH have a TRUE and direct connection to the Jewish nation. The Star of Solomon, falsely called the Star of David – DOES NOT. We will soon see God remove the veil. Then we will see this falsely so-called Star of David removed from any association with the people and land of Israel. The nation of Israel will soon become the nation of Judah. We will KNOW when God removes the veil and saves the whole nation in one day. We should KNOW how we will know.
Zec 12:9-11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy ALL the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.
2 Cor 3:14-16 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which veil is done away in Christ. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away.
We will KNOW because we will see the dark symbol of Satan and the occult, replaced on their National flag, with LIGHT from either the Burning Bush and/or the Menorah. Maranatha. Alleluia Yeshua. Burning Bush, or Menorah, or Both, let the symbol of the God who is Light, the God of Israel, be the symbol of Light, rather than darkness.
While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
The Six-Pointed Star: The origin, and history of the six-pointed star (hexagram) by O. J. Graham (Author)
and its mysterious link with mankind from the days of Egypt are intriguing. The six-pointed star has long been used in magic, occultism, witchcraft, and astrology, and has been found at the scene of so many occult crimes that the police in California issued a directive to all schools warning children to be cautious of this symbol. Click here to order a copy. Some years ago, it was reported in the Toronto Sun, that a church, and grave yard had been vandalized and "stars" were painted all over. The newspaper had decided not to say what kind of stars as they did not wish to have people think Jews had been responsible. Firstly, and emphatically, Jews were not responsible for the vandalizing. But as usual, they could have been blamed. Why? Because unfortunately, Jews have often used items and delved in practices that are contrary to Scriptures and the Bible records many such instances.
Why do most Jews use the six-pointed star, which they call the Star of David, the Shield of David, or the Magen David?
Well, here is where it gets intriguing: M. Hirsch Goldberg in his book The Jewish Connection states: " The Star of David is not of Jewish origin - and the ancient Israelites never used it as their religious symbol" (they used the Menorah or Seven Candlestick). So, why did the six-pointed star become known as the Jewish star? This symbol was widely adopted, not because the Jewish people chose it, but ironically because Adolph Hitler forced all Jews to wear a yellow six-pointed star during the holocaust. The word holocaust means burnt offering, and the six-pointed star was used in the past when burnt human sacrifices were offered to Moloch and Ashtoreth in Baal worship. The few Jews who had anything to do with the Six-Pointed star (hexagram) were those who were involved in occult practices. Back to Hitler, would he put anything good on a Jew? Hitler meant to insult and destroy the Jews, and being wrapped up in the occult (read the book, The Nazis and the Occult ), he may have meant the Jews to be his burnt offering for power. Today, most Jews wear this star by choice, and without thinking or checking out its origin and usage through time. Wearing the six-pointed star became a fashion.
The first mention of the six-pointed star in Israelite literature was in Amos 5:6, when YAWEH angrily tells His people that " I hate and despise your feast days…. You shall take up Siccuth, your king and Chiun your images, the star of your God…." Siccuth (Sakkuth) and Chiun (Kaiwan) means "star" and refers to Saturn as a star, and was objects of idolatrous worship, as they were considered to be Assyrian gods. The mixed multitude that went out of Egypt with the children of Israel took the star with them. Like the obelisk, the six-pointed star was an Egyptian idol used in idolatrous worship. In 922 B.C. when Solomon married the daughter of Pharoah, he became involved in Egyptian idol worship and went into magic, and witchcraft. Solomon built an altar to Ashtoreth and Moloch, and the six-pointed star, the chief symbol of human sacrifices in magic and witchcraft circles, came to be called the Seal of Solomon.
Solomon did not heed the subsequent warnings from God to cease from these abominable practices, even after God threatened to rend the Kingdom of Israel from his son's hand. And indeed, the split occurred after Solomon's death. Solomon's idolatry caused the Kingdom of Israel to be split in two. The practices he introduced to the children of Israel eventually caused the House of Israel to go into exile into the Caucasus, and the House of Judah to go into captivity. It was Josiah who later destroyed this forbidden altar. Did you know that the number 666 was connected to Solomon? (1 Kings 10:14) Yes, 666 talents of gold was sent to Solomon each month by none other than the King of Tyrus. After you have read this account in the book of 1 Kings, turn to Ezekiel Chapter 28. Oh, what a tangled web was weaved, when Solomon practised to deceive. King Solomon left many articles which proved his blatant idolatry, such as King Solomon's Mirror, King Solomon's Comb, and the six-pointed star, which became known as the Seal of Solomon in the witchcraft and occult world. Solomon also laid down the foundations of the Craft (Daniel 8:25) which later became known as Freemasonry., and the six-pointed star features prominently in Masonic rituals.
King David was Solomon's father, but he was never an idolater. He made it absolutely clear that God Himself was his shield, not only in Psalm 3:3 but in Psalm 28:7, Psalm 119:114, and Psalm 144:2.
The book, The Six-Pointed Star, is the first and only academic work which documents the origin and historical usage of this symbol. From Egypt to Solomon, to Arab magic, and witchcraft, to Druid uses, to freemasonry, to Mayer Amschel Bauer, who in the 17th century changes his name to depict the red six-pointed star which hung on his door in Germany, and thus began the family of "Rothschild" (meaning red shield). The Rothschild family incorporated this symbol in their Court of Arms. The research traced the six-pointed star through the Cabala, to astrology, to Hitler and his putting a yellow six-pointed star on Jews during the holocaust, to the Zionist symbol, and finally to the flag of the State of Israel and beyond.
- Because this symbol is comprised of a six within a six within a six (i.e. 6 points, 6 triangles, 6 sides of the inner hexagon) the research also includes a look at the 666 prophecies in the Book of Daniel etc., regarding the "willful king" (anti-Christ) and the "mark of the Beast." Included too, is the Scriptural significance of the number seven, and the Biblical description of the real Messiah, and the seven-branched Candlestick (Menorah), which God gave to the children of Israel as an everlasting Covenant, which is also mentioned in the New Testament and the Book of the Revelation. All sources are written at the bottom of each page making it easy for readers to see and check for themselves. It is the first and only book published on the origin and history of the six-pointed star. The book contains shocking information regarding the usage of the six-pointed star and its intimidating link with mankind. Have a good read. Click here to order .

by William F. DankenbringA Jewish Orthodox internet website tells us: “The Magen David (shield of David, or as it is more commonly known, the Star of David) is the symbol most commonly associated with Judaism today, but it is actually a relatively new Jewish symbol. It is supposed to represent the shape of King David’s shield (or perhaps the emblem on it), but there is really no support for that claim in any early rabbinic literature. In fact, the symbol is so rare in early Jewish literature and artwork that art dealers suspect forgery if they find the symbol in early works.“Scholars such as Franz Rosenzweig have attributed deep theological significance to the symbol. For example, some note that the top triangle strives upward, toward G-d, while the lower triangle strives downward, toward the real world. Some note that the intertwining makes the triangles inseparable, like the Jewish people. Some say that the three sides represent the three types of Jews: Kohanin, Levites and Israel. Some note that there are actually 12 sides (3 exterior and 3 interior on each triangle), representing the 12 tribes. While these theories are theologically interesting, theyhave little basis in historical fact.”The site continues: “The symbol of intertwined equilateral triangles is a common one in the Middle East and North Africa, and is thought to bring good luck. It appears occasionally in early Jewish artwork, but never as an exclusively Jewish symbol. The nearest thing to an ‘official’ Jewish symbol at the time was the seven-branched “menorah.”In the 17th century, it became a popular practice to put Magen Davids on the outside of Jewish synagogues to identify them as Jewish houses of worship in much the same way that a cross identified a Christian house of worship.The so-called “Star of David” gained popularity as a symbol of Judaism when it was adopted as the emblem of the Zionist movement in 1897, but the symbol continued to be very controversial for many years. When the modern state of Israel was founded in 1948, there was much debate over whether this symbol should be used on the flag.Today, of course, the “Star of David” is a universally recognized symbol of Jewry. It appears on the flag of the state of Israel. Its real origins, however, are not so pure.The HexagramThe so-called “Star of David” is essentially a “hexagram,” nothing more, nothing less. There is no Biblical or Jewish evidence that traces this ancient occult symbol with king David of Israel. However, there is evidence that it was used by king Solomon, after he turned to pagan gods and the occult, late in his life, causing God to become very angry with him .A Masonic book called The Second Mile, an Eastern Star book, reveals that the “six pointed star is a very ancient symbol, and one of the most powerful.” The hexagram is used in magic, witchcraft, sorcery and occultism and the casting of zodiacal horoscopes by astrologers. “It was considered to posses mysterious powers,” says A Concise Cyclopedia of Freemasonry.The six pointed star is used as a “stand-by for magicians and alchemists. The sorcerers believed it represented the footprints of a special kind of DEMON called a "trud" and used it in ceremonies both to call up demons and to keep them away” (O. J. Graham, The Six Pointed Star, New Puritan Library, 1988, p.35).Says Masonic and Occult Symbols Illustrated, by Dr. Cathy Burns, “The Hexagram is formed by united the Water Triangle with the Fire Triangle, which is the Six-pointed Sart, Star of David, Solomon’s Seal, etc. When the two triangles (the ‘Water Triangle’ and the ‘Fire Triangle’) are joined together into one symbol, it forms a six pointed star known as a double triangle, hexagram, Crest of Solomon, star of the microcosm and the Shield of David, among other names. It is even called the ‘talisman of Saturn’” (p.38).Occultists use it as a “stand-by for magicians and alchemists. The sorcerers believed it represented the footprint of a special kind of DEMON called a trud and used it for ceremonies both to call up demons and to keep them away” (ibid.).Bill Schnoebelen, a former Satanist, tells us, “To the sorcerer, the hexagram is a powerful tool to invoke Satan.” In fact, the word “hex” -- as to put a “hex” or “curse” on people -- comes from this word.The hexagram also has a sexual connotation. It represents sexual union. The triangle pointed downward is a female symbol and the triangle pointed upward is the male symbol; when they are interlaced it represents coitus, or sexual union of the active and passive forces in nature. A former witch reveals, “When the male triangle penetrates the female triangle it produced the six pointed crest of Solomon or hexagram, the most wicked symbol in witchcraft” (Burns, ibid., p.39).In fact, the hexagram was also used by the ancient Hindus in the worship of their divine “Trinity” – Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva – as the “unity” of three gods in one. J. S. M. Ward adds that it is “strictly the sign of Trimurti, the Three in One, typifying the creative, preservative and destructive natures of the Deity.”If you examine the so-called “Star of David,” or hexagram, closely, you will discover something astonishing. It has sixpoints, forms six equilateral triangles, and in its interior forms a six sided hexagon -- thus it reveals the number of Satan the devil, or the beast of Revelation -- 66, and 6 -- 666 !!!
An Occult Sex SymbolA Masonic author declares that the triangles that make up the hexagram “are symbolic of good and evil, day and night, the Chinese yang and yin, etc.” In the Masonic system, we have the interlaced triangles, one black and one white, the white triangle with its point up, the black triangle with its point down. It represents the male and female elements. The interlaced black and white triangles picture darkness and light, good and evil, error and truth, ignorance and wisdom, and supposedly balance and harmony.In The Gods of India, by Alain Danielou, we read:“The triangle with its apex upward is also taken to represent fire,identified with the male principle, the linga or phallus, symbolof Siva the Progenitor or of the Cosmic Person . . .“The triangle pointed downward represents the force of inertiawhich pulls downward, and tends to suppress activity. It isassociated with the element of water, which always tends tocome down, to equalize its level. It is the passive aspect of creationand thus is represented by the yoni or female organ, the emblemof Energy or Cosmic Nature” (quoted by Dr. Burns, p.35).We see that this ancient occult figure of the hexagram, or Seal of Solomon, or Star of David – as it is also called -- is nothing more than a repulsive pagan symbol of sexual union and reproduction. The triangle pointing downward represents the female sexual organ, the vagina, and the upward pointing triangle represents the male penis. Joined together in the hexagram, they represent the act of sexual intercourse. Thus the hexagram was a part of Satan’s original “sex worship” rites and symbols of ancient BAALISM – the sensuous religion of Nimrod and Semiramis – which began just this side of the Flood!In the book The Gods of India, by Alain Danielou, we also discover: “The two complimentary principles, the linga and the yoni, are graphically represented by the fiery triangle with upward apex and the watery triangle with downward apex. When the triangles penetrate each other to form the hexagon, this is taken to show the state of manifestation. When they part, the universe dissolves” (p.219).Archaeologist E.A. Wallace Budge, an authority on ancient Egyptian mythology, relates: “Those who believed in the physical significance of the Hexagram taught that communication between the living and the dead was possible, and adopted the dogma of reincarnation ” (Amulets and Superstition, p.432).How did this ancient symbol of the occult, and Satan the devil, find its way into Judaism, and become the major symbol today of the Jewish people, adorning the Israeli flag? That is an interesting question, indeed! As God says in His Word, Satan the Devil is “that ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, the deceiver of the WHOLE WORLD”(Revelation 12:9, NRSV). That means virtually everybody – every nation – every religion – the WHOLE WORLD!The Christians have their “cross” – also an ancient pagan symbol of sex worship. And the Jewish people have the Seal of Solomon or hexagram – another ancient pagan sex symbol! See our article, “The Mystery of the Cross.”When did the hexagram become a symbol of the Jewish people?
Egyptian OriginThe first martyr of the Christian church, Stephen, in his defense before the Sanhedrin, warned the Jewish nation, as he reviewed the history of Israel: “Then God turned and gave them p to worship the host of heaven, as it is written in the books of the Prophets: Did you offer Me slaughtered animals and sacrifices during forty years in the wilderness, O house of Israel? You also took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and THE STAR of your god Remphan, IMAGES which you made to WORSHIP” (Acts 7:42-43). Notice! This pagan worship was derived from EGYPT, and even when Israel left Egypt under Moses, some of them brought the Egyptian pagan idols and images with them, secretly!God’s Word warns us, in the prophecy of Amos: “You also carried Sikkuth your king [tabernacle of Moloch] and Chiun, your idols, the STAR of your gods, which you made for yourselves” (Amos 5:26). This star was very likely the SIX-POINTED STAR -- the star associated with sexual depravity, reproductivity, and whoring – already used in ancient Egypt! -- the Hexagram!How did this figure become popular in Israel? Solomon, after he became king of Israel, “made a treaty with PHARAOH king of Egypt, and married Pharaoh's daughter; then he brought her to the city of David until he had finished building his own house” (I Kings 3:1). The influence of the daughter of Pharaoh, king of Egypt, was no doubt considerable -- the foremost and chiefest of all his wives.Solomon who loved the Lord in the beginning of his reign, turned away from the true path of worship as he grew older. The Scriptures tell us, “But King Solomon loved many foreign women, as well as the daughter of Pharaoh: women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Sidonians, and Hittites -- from the nations of whom the LORD had said, ‘You shall not intermarry with them, nor they with you. Surely they will turn away your hearts after THEIR GODS.’ Solomon clave to these in love” (I Kings 11:1-2).“For it was so when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his heart after other gods; and his heart was not loyal to the LORD his God, as was the heart of his father David” (v.4). Solomon worshipped, among other gods, Ashtoreth (Easter, Venus, Aprhodite), Milcom or Molech, the fiery king of gods whose rites included human sacrifice and witchcraft and sexual orgies, and Chemosh (see verses 5-7). Solomon built high places, temples, and altars, for these pagan abominations, “And he did likewise for all his foreign wives, who burned incense and sacrificed to their gods” (v.8).It would appear that king Solomon adopted the Hexagram, which became known as “Solomon’s Seal.” When he went astray from God’s path of truth, and began to consort with evil forces, he became a powerful wizard, or consulter of demons and the occult powers of darkness. Thus it would appear that Solomon made the hexagram a prominent symbol in ancient Israel. He adopted it from the pagan nations around him.There is no evidence to connect the hexagram with David, his father. There is no reason to believe that David, a man after God’s own heart, would ever adopt a pagan symbol for his “shield.” But Satan the devil, the chief of liars and deceivers, would certainly love to have you think so! (Rev.12:9; John 8:44).However, since the Seal evidently was used in Israel since the time of Solomon, it would not be strange if it was found associated with kings of Israel in later times. James Trimm makes such an assertion saying a bas relief from the time of king Jehu of Israel shows a “Star of David” symbol over the prostrate Israelite king as he pays homage to the Assyrian conqueror. It is found in the book Kings and Pharaohs by David Rohl. He got the title reversed.I found the illustration he mentioned in Pharaohs and Kings: A Biblical Quest, by David M. Rohl (Crown Publishers, New York, 1995). It is on page 33. It is a panel from the Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser III, showing either Jehu or his representative bowing and scraping before the Assyrian king. The so-called “Star of David” high on the wall behind the bowing figure, however, is hardly convincing. It is nothing like two intersecting, interlaced triangles at all. It looks more like a wheel with six spokes – much like a chariot wheel (or even the nautical “wheel” used to steer a ship or boat). This picture hardly proves the Star of David was the seal of state of ancient Israel. If this is supposed to be proof in the eyes of James Trimm that justifies the use of the Star of David, then I shudder to consider what some people consider “proof” of anything.Jehu, of course, was definitely not a righteous king of Israel. He himself went astray from the paths of God and departed from His commands. Jehu started out with great zeal, and slew the house of Ahab, and even Jezebel, and destroyed the temple of Baal, making it a latrine (II Kings 10:27), “But Jehu did not turn aside from the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he caused Israel to commit – the golden calves that were in Bethel and Dan” (verse 28). We read, “But Jehu was not careful to follow the law of the LORD the God of Israel with all his heart; he did not turn from the sins of Jeroboam which he caused Israel to commit. In those days the LORD began to trim off parts of Israel’ (II Kings 10:31, NRSV).
Modern IsraelWhy and how did the six-pointed star -- the pagan occult symbol -- become connected with the MODERN state of Israel? It was adopted as the family crest or shield by the Rothschild family during the 19th century. The Rothschilds bought a great deal of property in Israel, from the Turks and Arabs, and were amongst the major supporters of the Zionist movement in the early decades. The influence of the Rothschilds and their heavy financial support of Israel, led the Jewish nation to adopt the so-called “Star of David” as their own symbol as a nation.How amazing it is! When we look at all the evidence, truly Satan the devil has deceived the whole world – all mankind – both Jews and Gentiles. The Christians, so-called, adore the cross, which is an ancient pagan fertility symbol. And likewise, the Jews cherish the Star of David or Seal of Solomon – the hexagram – which is another powerful occult sex symbol!
What Does GOD Say?What should God’s people do about these things? The prophet Jeremiah states, “Do not learn the way of the nations . . . For the customs of the peoples are FALSE” (Jer.10:1-3, NRSV).Moses wrote: “You must demolish completely all the places where the nations whom you are about to dispossess served their gods [and their symbols] . . . Break down their altars, smash their pillars, burn their sacred poles with fire, and hew down the idols of their gods, and thus blot out their name from their places. You shall not worship the LORD your God in such ways” (Deuteronomy 12:2-4).The apostle Paul wrote: “Do not be mismatched with unbelievers. For what partnership is there between righteousness and lawlessness? Or what fellowship is there between light and darkness? What agreement does Christ have with Belial? Or what does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, ‘I will live in them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore come out from them, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and TOUCH NOTHING UNCLEAN; then I will welcome you, and I will be your father, and you shall be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty’” (II Cor.6:14-18, NRSV).As God’s people, we should have NO PART in the use of these perverted and demonic symbols which have been the trademark of pagans, witches, and practitioners of the occult. That includes both the falsely portrayed “Star of David,” which has nothing to do with David, or the so-called “Christian cross,” which has nothing whatever to do with the true Christ, Yeshua the Messiah, who died on an upright pole and not a cross!As the apostle Paul declared, its time to repent and put away all these pagan emblems and symbols, and become holy and pure before God. “While God has overlooked the times of human ignorance, now he commands all people everywhere to REPENT, because he has fixed a day on which he will have the world judged” (Acts 17:30-31).The apostle Jude declared, it is time we should “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered to the saints” (Jude 3, KJV). Let’s free ourselves from all such unholy influences.
The "Star of David" is not in the Bible.Although it is now the most common and universally recognized sign of Judaism and Jewish identity, both within and outside the Jewish community, it has only achieved this status in the last two hundred years. Before that it was chiefly associated with magic or with the insignia of individual families or communities. While many legends state it was used by David and Solomon, no real historical proof exists. Rather all evidence suggests that early use of it, the hexagram was limited to "practical Kabbalah", that is, Jewish magic, probably dating back to the 6th century.
When the Zionist movement looked for a symbol they chose the "Star of David" because it was so well accepted as a Jewish symbol. Then when Israel became a state, it became the state symbol of its own national redemption. The "Star of David" is not in the Bible.
THE SIX-POINTED STARTHE MARK OF THE BEAST
byJanet MoserAnd he causeth all, both small and great,Rich and poor, free and bond,To receive a mark on their right hand,Or on their forehead.And that no man might buy or sell,Save that he had the mark,Or the name of the beast,Or the number of his name.*Revelation 13:16,17
And I saw…them that had gotten the victory over the beast,And over his image and over his mark…
This study is dedicated to those overcomers during the Great Tribulation period who, because of their love for the Lord and His Word would rather give up their own lives than take the Mark of the Beast. These are the true heroes of the Tribulation period, whom God will richly reward.…and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which did not do homage to the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their forehead, or upon their hand; and THEY LIVED AND REIGNED WITH CHRIST A THOUSAND YEARS. (Rev. 20:4)*We believe that both Israel and Christians have been deceived by occultists who would have them believe that the six-pointed star is a Jewish symbol. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is not a Jewish symbol, but an occult symbol. The six-pointed star is a hexagram - a curse mark - no matter what name it may have: Star of David, Solomon's Seal, Double Triangle, Shield of David, etc. When the occult practitioner puts a curse on someone, he uses the hexagram!Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved. For I bear them record, that they have a zeal for God, but not according to knowledge. (Rev. 10:1,2)The challenge in writing this report was to make a difficult topic easy to understand and inoffensive to Israel, for it is not my goal to condemn the Jewish people, but to condemn the six-pointed star, a curse mark. For God will both bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel:I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (Gen. 12:2,3)It is our hope that the Lord will use this report during the seven years of the Great Tribulation period to help his people know that the six-pointed star truly is the mark of the beast and, upon understanding this, to reject the mark when it comes.I will stand upon my watch and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I will answer when I am reproved. And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because IT WILL SURELY COME, it will not tarry. (Hab. 2:1-3)
A. RESEARCH PROCESS USED TO DISCOVER THE MARK OF THE BEASTBased on five principles, our study will demonstrate that the six-pointed star fulfills all requirements of the Mark of the Beast.1. The study of prophecy covers the past, the present, and the future.Write the things which thou HAST SEEN, and the things which ARE, and the things which SHALL BE. (Rev. 1:19)2. Understanding the future depends upon understanding the past.The thing that HATH BEEN, is that which SHALL BE; and that which IS DONE is that which shall be done: and whereof it may be said, See, this is new? It hath been already of old time, which was before us. (Eccl. 1:9,10)3. Scripture helps us to understand the past.All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: THAT THE MAN OF GOD MAY BE PERFECT, THOROUGHLY FURNISHED UNTO ALL GOOD WORKS. (II Tim. 3:16,17)4. Mythology helps us to understand the end-time deception.For the time will come when they shall not endure sound doctrine, but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (Gr. muthos, or myths) (II Tim. 4:3,4)5. God gives His people discernment to understand the future.Call unto me and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things which thou knowest not. (Jer. 33:3)B. RELEVANCE OF UNDERSTANDING THE MARK OF THE BEAST1. If we are able to understand Bible prophecy, we must be very close to the time of the end.…the words are closed up and sealed TILL THE TIME OF THE END…and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. (Dan 12:9,10)2. Those who understand will not be deceived by the mark, but will learn to recognize it and those who are promoting it.Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness. (II Pet. 3:17)3. The mark of the beast affects the eternal destiny of all who are living during the Great Tribulation period of the end times.And the smoke of their TORMENT ascendeth up FOREVER and ever; and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever RECEIVETH THE MARK OF HIS NAME. (Rev. 14:11)And I saw…the souls of them that were beheaded…which did not do homage to the beast, neither his image, NEITHER HAD RECEIVED HIS MARK upon their forehead, or upon their hand; and they LIVED AND REIGNED with Christ a thousand years. (Rev. 20:4)*
C. RESPONSIBLITY AFTER UNDERSTANDING THE MARK OF THE BEASTAnd I saw...them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image and over his mark... (Rev. 15:2)1. They will obey God's commands (Do not take the mark).The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children, that we may DO all the words of this law. (Deut. 29:29)He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the CHURCHES. (Rev. 2:29)...Hear, O Israel, the statutes and judgments which I speak in your ears this day, that ye may LEARN THEM, and KEEP, AND DO THEM. (Deut. 5:1)THOU SHALT NOT MAKE UNTO THEE ANY GRAVEN IMAGE, OR ANY LIKENESS OF ANY THING THAT IS IN THE HEAVEN ABOVE, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. (Ex. 20:4)...neither shall ye use enchantment... Ye shall not make any CUTTINGS IN YOUR FLESH... nor PRINT ANY MARKS UPON YOU: I am the Lord. (Lev. 19:26, 28)2. They will help others to understand by revealing the mark.And they that understand among the people shall instruct many... (Dan. 11:33)
D. RESOURCES USED TO PROVE THE MARK OF THE BEAST1. Scripturea. The Interlinear Greek English New Testament: King James Version is used as the basis for Scripture verses.b. New Versions are cited which reveal Satan's agenda.2. Occult Sources
E. REASONS WE BELIEVE THE SIX-POINTED STAR IS THE MARK OF THE BEAST1. Scriptural supporta. The Textus ReceptusThe King James Version does not always follow the Textus Receptus. The verses pertaining to the mark of the beast are different in each. Our position is that the Textus Receptus was verbally inspired by God and is the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. The Textus Receptus states that the mark will be on or upon the hand or forehead. The George Ricker Berry Interlinear Greek-English New Testament (Textus Receptus) reads thus:And it causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the bondmen, that it should give them a mark on their right hand, or on their foreheads; and that no one should be able to buy or to sell, except he who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of its name. (Rev. 13:16,17)And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man do homage to the beast and his image, and receive his mark ON his forehead, or UPON his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.And I saw thrones; and they sat upon them, and judgment was given to them; and the souls of those beheaded on account of the testimony of Jesus, and on account of the word of God, and those who did not do homage to the beast, nor his image, and did not recieve the mark upon their forehead, and upon their hand; and they lived and reigned with Christ the thousand years... (Rev. 20:4)b. Strong's ConcordanceThe Greek word for "mark" in these verses is charagma. Strong's Concordance defines this word as a mark that is stamped, branded, imprinted or engraved on the individual's forehead or hand, rather than implanted in the skin.AV - mark 8, graven 1; 91) a stamp, an imprinted mark
1a) of the mark stamped on the forehead or the right hand as the badge of the followers of the Antichrist
1b) the mark branded upon horses
2) thing carved, sculpture, graven work
2a) of idolatrous imagesc. Bible prophecyThe book of Revelation places the mandatory reception of the Mark of the Beast in chapter 13, after the seven seal judgments and seven trumpet judgments have taken place. Prior to this, Rev. 11:18 refers to nations which have destroyed the earth: And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged...and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.Our report on Heeding Bible Prophecy reveals that the occult plan for the New Age is to go *back to the future* -- to revert mankind to the pre-flood days of Noah and ultimately to the Garden of Eden. The rationale for destroying the earth is the Gnostic belief that the world was created by an evil Demiurge and that the material world is inherently evil. In order for man to transcend matter, and attain to godhood, the world must be annihilated. It logically follows that the destruction caused by mankind and the severity of God's judgments will disable the current systems of advanced technology that are required for a microchip implant. The chip implant, however, will be promoted by the occult societies as a counterfeit mark of the beast during the first half of the Tribulation period. To further deceive, a *false* Antichrist and *false* False Prophet will be staged and judged at mid-Tribulation by the *real* Antichrist, who poses as *The Christ.* At mid-Trib, after approximately one half of the world has been decimated, mankind will revert to a sophisticated system of barter and exchange, which is already in place. The true mark of the beast -- the six-pointed star -- will then be branded as a tattoo upon those who vow their allegiance to Satan at the Luciferic initiation.2. Occult sources reveal the Mark of the Beast (Lucifer)a. The great seal (mark) of Lucifer is the six-pointed star.
I Sail with the Sealby John M. Tapia*I*am that I am the *I* as I am

MY SYMBOL IN LIGHT IS THE SIX POINTED
STAR THE STAR OF HEAVEN
THIS IS MY GREAT SEAL.b. The six-pointed star symbolizes man's ascent to divinity:"The Septenary Universe unfolds seamlessly from Infinity to the physical plane but it was divided into Seven Planes of Existence--or states of consciousness--by The Hierarchy who released this information through Mme. Blavatsky. The Three Higher Planes--Atma (Infinity), Buddhi (Light) and Manas (Higher Intelligence) constitute the Higher Self. The Higher Self is represented by the triangle pointing upwards. Interestingly enough, everyone and everything in the Universe has the same three principles in their seven-principled bodies and this constitutes the principle of Universal Brotherhood.
"The triangle pointing downwards is representative of the lower self, the three principles of sensient life--the 'breath of life' (which is a reflection of the Highest Principle), the Astral Body and the physical Body.
"When we come into existence, these two triangles are separated, the higher above the lower. In between is a single point of consciousness which represets the soul. The soul is the vehicle of our desires. If we desire the things of the lower principles, the fire of out soul is directed downward and, if our lower desires are strong enough, goes out.
"However, if we direct the fire upwards into our Higher Self, we receive the higher energies necessary to RAISE OUR LOWER SELF into harmony with our Higher Self. Thus the lower and Higher self become locked together in place in perfect Union by the principle of the soul. Thus we attain full consciousness awareness on ALL PLANES of the universe and he have, in effect, spiritualized our lower self, to the point where it has raised its energies into Union with the Higher.
"As the great metaphysician Mme. Helena Roerich said, 'Man becomes simply a god...and then God.'" - GaiaMindc. The six-pointed star is considered by occultists to be the Star of Bethlehem which will precede the Advent of *Christ*.Immediately after the tribulation of those days...shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven... (Matt. 24:29-30)"The Star is the symbol of the perfect life, the perfect balance, of the Christ-man. The six-pointed star is the Star of Bethlehem, which again means the Star of the Son of man...
"The star with the six points represents the star of Light...of brotherhood, the Star of Christ. The love of Christ is represented by this Star. So, we have in that symbol a representation of the Ancient Wisdom, and the love of Christ, the wisdom and love combined, which is to be realized by humanity in this New Age - the age of Aquarius." - GaiaMind
