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] https://spiritualray.com/meaning-of-star-of-david

Buddhism and their use of the Star of David hexagram:

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.  — www.dharmamemphis.com/images/hexom.gif
