Is the Star of David a Godly Symbol?

Star of DavidIs the Star of David a Godly Symbol?

As Christians we believe by faith in Jesus Christ. We do not need symbols, signs or trinkets to remind us who Jesus Christ is because we have the Holy Spirit abiding IN US. The Star of David is part of the Jewish faith – a Christian should not be entertaining symbols from other faiths.

This Hexagram is a six-pointed star known as the Star of David. It is also known as “Magen David”, meaning ‘Shield of David’ in Hebrew.  Did King David ever use this star as a symbol, I think not.  Searching history as to the origin of the Star of David leaves us with very little to go by, however if we search the bible it becomes very clear what this star is and who it belongs too.

The Star of David (Hexagon) is not a God given symbol to the Jews. The Israelites chose this star symbol while worshiping ANOTHER god, under a totally different religion – Babylonianism.

Amos 5:26-27 (Amplified Bible)

26 [No] but [instead of bringing Me the appointed sacrifices] you carried about the tent of your king Sakkuth and Kaiwan [names for the gods of the planet Saturn], your images of your star-god which you made for yourselves [and you will do so again].

27 Therefore I will cause you to go into exile beyond Damascus, says the Lord, whose name is the God of hosts.

Acts 7:37-43 (Amplified Bible)

37It was this [very] Moses who said to the children of Israel, God will raise up for you a Prophet from among your brethren as He raised me up.

38This is he who in the assembly in the wilderness (desert) was the go-between for the Angel who spoke to him on Mount Sinai and our forefathers, and he received living oracles (words that still live) to be handed down to us.

39[And yet] our forefathers determined not to be subject to him [refusing to listen to or obey him]; but thrusting him aside they rejected him, and in their hearts yearned for and turned back to Egypt.

40And they said to Aaron, Make us gods who shall [be our leaders and] go before us; as for this Moses who led us forth from the land of Egypt–we have no knowledge of what has happened to him.

41And they [even] made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifice to the idol and made merry and exulted in the work of their [own] hands.

42But God turned [away from them] and delivered them up to worship and serve the host (stars) of heaven, as it is written in the book of the prophets: Did you [really] offer to Me slain beasts and sacrifices for forty years in the wilderness (desert), O house of Israel?

43[No!] You took up the tent (the portable temple) of Moloch and carried it [with you], and the star of the god Remphan, the images which you [yourselves] made that you might worship them; and I will remove you [carrying you away into exile] beyond Babylon

The origin of the Star of David is kind of vague. It was also used by Christians, Hindus, and Muslims at some point of time. It had never been mentioned in the Rabbinic literature till the middle ages. After the middle ages, a deeper spiritual meaning was associated with the star by Kabbalists.

The Magen David was first used as a Jewish symbol in Prague, Czechoslovakia, in 1354. Jews were given the right to have a flag by Emperor Charles IV. The Jews chose the double triangle star as their symbol. When the Emperor was welcomed to the city in the 1500s, they displayed the star on their banners. In the 1600s, Emperor Ferdinand II ruled over Prague and the city was attacked by Swedish forces. The Jews defended the city for the emperor, and as an appreciation they were given the right to adopt a coat of arms. This was an exceptional honor, as it was only bestowed upon the people from the noble families.  [Emphasis added]

HexagrOM symbol:- 

 width=“OM Mani Padme Hum” is the oldest and most important mantra of Tibetan Buddhism, usually translated from Sanskrit as “OM, jewel in the lotus, hum”. The “jewel in the lotus” may be considered as enlightenment arising in the lotus of human consciousness. This is the holiest of Tibetan mantras, associated with the bodhisattva (“enlightened being”) Avalokiteshvara, and is an expression of compassion as well as a longing for liberation and enlightenment.

Each Tibetan character represents one syllable in the mantra, and these six syllables are linked to the six modes of existence in the bhava-chakra (“Wheel of Life”). The Wheel of Life is divided into six segments: the upper half of the Wheel contains the higher realms of gods, antigods (jealous gods) and human beings. The lower half of the Wheel contains the lower realms of animals, hungry ghosts and hell beings. Each being is born into one of these realms of existence according to its karma, and books like the Tibetan Book of the Dead detail ways to ensure rebirth in the higher realms and avoid the lower ones. The syllables of the mantra of Avalokiteshvara are assigned to the realms so that each of the types of beings may be taught the way to liberation from the cycle of existence.  —

  1. Hi Mannny,
    Yes, absolutely correct.

  2. Cody Hoeniges says:

    Deborah, Do you think Amos 5:26 is a prophecy of Israel’s flag and earlier usage or referring to their present state of that writing?

  3. Hi Cody

    Definitely refering to their earlier usage of the 5 pointed star. And definitely looks like a prophecy “that they will go so again”…and use the star of Saturn on their flag (precent) and possibly even engrave it into the coming 3rd temple (future) that needs to be rebuilt during the tribulation after the Antichrist gives Israel the go-ahead to build and start sacrificing again.

    Amos 5:26-27 (Amplified Bible)

    26 [No] but [instead of bringing Me the appointed sacrifices] you carried about the tent of your king Sakkuth and Kaiwan [names for the gods of the planet Saturn], your images of your star-god which you made for yourselves 👉🏻[and you will do so again]👈🏻

  4. Dwight D Osborne says:

    The “star of David” is NOT just a Jewish symbol but even more importantly it is indeed OF GOD AND BIBLUICAL FAITH. It’s astounding that a believer who claims to teach the Bible could be in such ignorance. Even the pagan Balaam recognized the significance of what or rather who it points to. Jehovah spoke through a pagan but He isn’t speaking through you. “17I see him, but not now;

    I behold him, but not near.

    A star will come forth from Jacob,

    and a scepter will arise from Israel.” Numbers 24:17 Take your false notions and deposit them where they belong, in Tartarus where the fallen angels are confined who committed sexual immorality in Genesis 6.

  5. Dwight D Osborne
    The fact that Israel as a nation rejects Jesus Christ as their Messiah unto this very day, proves that the star of David does not in any sense refer to Jesus Christ or is even closely related to Numbers 24:17. Now, let us examine the star to see if your Tartarus judgment does not instead apply to you.

    Star of David: The Mystical Significance Kabbalistic Insights Into the Star of David By Naftali Silberberg.

    The Star of David is a symbol commonly associated with Judaism and the Jewish People. In Hebrew, it is called Magen David (“Shield of David”). A six-pointed star, the Star of David is composed of two overlaid equilateral triangles, one pointing up and the other pointing down.

    Two Triangles in the Star of David

    The Zohar (3:73a) states, “There are three knots connecting [three entities] one to another: the Holy One, blessed be He; Torah; and Israel.” The Jewish soul connects to its Creator through the study and observance of Torah. The triangle represents the connection between these three entities These three entities are each comprised of a pnimiyut (inner dimension) and a chitzoniyut (external dimension). The Torah is comprised of both exoteric teachings (the Talmud, Jewish law, etc.) as well as esoteric teachings (the Kabbalah). G‑d’s “revealed” energy permeates and provides existence to all worlds, but His essence is completely hidden, transcending all of creation. Similarly, the soul (which is a reflection of G‑d) has a revealed element, that level that expresses itself within and vivifies the body, as well as an essence that transcends the body.

    The double triangle of the Star of David (Magen David) symbolizes the connection of both dimensions of G‑d, Torah and Israel: the external level of the soul connects to the external expression of G‑d via studying the exoteric parts of Torah; the essence of the soul.

    Do you see any reference to Jesus Christ or the slightest symbolism of Him in this description? Keep your unmitigated judgments to yourself. You are not welcome here and beware of Tartarus where all the fallen angels and sexually immoral are confined. The worship of a star called the Star of David is worse than sexual immorality. Beware!!!

    And by the way, the star of David which is actually called “Solomon’s Seal” is used in many Masonic Lodges. Now, go and take your Star of David” and worship it to see whether you will make it to heaven or Tartarus.

    Enlightening; amazing how the truth will set you free. Society has been held captive as to Jews and the Jews as a nation. This confirms what I recently heard and read 3-4 days ago from a prophet…. I continue to seek truth & am grateful for you and your studies!! Be safe, healthy & blessed! Selah y Shalom! John

  7. John M Coffey

    Excuse me?

    What do you mean society has been held captive by Jews and the Jews as a nation?

    Listen here, just because the star of David is not actually the star of David as he never had a star does NOT mean you may hate the Jews and the Jewish people as a whole.

    How dare you! Are you born again?
    What were you before you were saved? A heathen! That’s right, no better than any other pagan religion out there.

    What happen to love thy neighbour as you love yourself and loving God first?

    You said you receive this information from a prophet? There are no more prophets..all genuine prophets are mentioned by name in the bible.
