The Truth Behind the “Star of David”

Being fully aware that I have pushed into uncomfortable territory in several blogs and within my recent video—System of the Beast—I figure that I may as well go all the way with my thoughts on the current state of Israel.

I will be blunt and say that, while I certainly affirm that the nation of Israel represented God’s chosen people throughout the OT, the nation that has existed in the Middle East since 1948 is definitely NOT the same “Israel.” Far from it. I will not rehash my many reasons for taking this stance here and now, but instead will refer you to my article that specifically discussed this matter. Please see, Is Israel God’s Chosen Nation?

At present, I wish to discuss something that has become both an identity marker for the state of Israel and a cherished symbol for those who support it. I am referring to the famous Star of David. Or, as I will show you, the so-called Star of David.

Through much research into the dark world of Freemasonry and its Satanic purposes, I can confidently say that this “holy” symbol is nothing of the sort. Like so many other things, the reality does not match the story we have been told.

Rather, it’s just another piece of evidence confirming that this world is run by none other than Satan himself.


Anyone who has ever investigated the origin and meaning of the Star of David—or the “Magen David” (mah-gen dah-veed), meaning the “Shield of David”—can affirm that the matter is a muddled mess. There is no consensus on how it came to be, or what it’s even supposed to stand for. Yes, you can find a plethora of sources claiming to understand these riddles. However, there is almost never any concrete facts provided, and there certainly isn’t a coherent story.

Historically, this six-pointed star (or hexagram) was associated with King Solomon and is often called the “Seal of Solomon.”

In medieval mystical traditions, the Seal is the signet ring that was possessed by Solomon. Supposedly, it was enchanted with mysterious powers. In the pseudepigraphical (or, falsely attributed) text, the Testament of Solomonwritten by an unknown author/s, perhaps between the first and third centuries A.D.—Solomon receives the ring from the Archangel, Michael. This granted Solomon the power to summon demons and perform all manner of magic spells. Specifically, Solomon was able to control these spirits and command them to erect the Temple of God.

Not surprisingly, the “Seal of Solomon” is used in Witchcraft circles. I will discuss this connection more in the next section. However, it’s worth noting now that, in Witcraft, this symbol is called the “Second Pentacle of Jupiter” and is used as a “magical Seal for acquiring glory, honors, riches, and tranquility of mind.” It often looks like the image below.

Given its unholy origins, this symbol would only become more sacrilegious as time went on.

Concerning its later connection to King David, one of the most popular theories posited—which is made by those who are defending Israel and its sacred symbol—is that the Star was derived from King David’s statements about God being his “shield” (see Psa. 3:3 and 28:7). Supposedly, and at various unknown times, stories developed within the rabbinical communities about David going out to battle with a shield that was either shaped like a six-pointed star or was engraved with one.

How one gets from David calling God “his shield” to David going into battle with a six-pointed star on his shield is unexplained.

Rather than using this convoluted line of speculations, some have attempted to make the connection through evaluating the very shape of the Star itself. As the Board of Jewish Education puts it:

“Many Jewish scholars have attributed religious significance to the symbol. For instance, some believe that the top triangle strives upwards, towards God, while the lower triangle strives downwards, towards the real world. Others note that the linking of the triangles is symbolic of the Jewish people, interlocked and inseparable.”

What information are such conclusions based upon? No one knows.

As mentioned earlier, these theories are almost entirely based on speculation and come from a position that wants to find a perfectly acceptable explanation for the symbol that has come to mark the nation of Israel. Even those who try to explain the Star’s origins in positive terms cannot avoid admitting that its Jewish implications were derived from Kabbalistic practices. This means that ancient mysticism brought us the present day meaning of the Star of David.

Further, many Jewish sources—who defend the Star, mind you—acknowledge that it has only been associated with Israel in modern times. They must admit that the connection is not one that has been firmly rooted in history.

All this is probably why these theories have never satisfied those with strong historical insight or a nose for truth. The greatly esteemed Jewish academic, Gershom Scholem, studied the Star perhaps more than anyone in history and concluded that it is not an ancient Jewish symbol. Rather, it was a magical emblem—a “mystical talisman,” of sorts—that was merely adopted by Jews in the 19th century. Scholem stated his overall view very plainly:

“The Magen David is not a Jewish symbol, and therefore not the ‘symbol of Judaism’.”

Finding concrete ways to link the Star with the ancient nation of Israel has eluded its most ardent proponents. Or perhaps they just aren’t willing to accept what it really means.


If the Star of David is shrouded in historical mystery, what can we make of it?

I have a theory on the matter. Unlike the others mentioned, I will provide concrete reasons why this theory is the most plausible. Nay, that it is simply factual. For the record, I did not enter this topic with an agenda. In fact—and as I have said elsewhere—I used to believe that the current nation of Israel is God’s chosen people and that their iconic symbol reflected that reality.

The first place people of faith should start is with the Bible. Is there any evidence in favor of this six-pointed star being associated with King David or with the nation of Israel in general? The short answer is an emphatic no. There is not a single verse of Scripture making this connection. Nowhere does it associate a star with David or the Jewish people.

The complete lack of evidence linking the “Star of David” with David or the nation of Israel is extremely telling. Since the Old Testament is by far the key source of information about such matters, one would surely expect a symbol of such alleged importance to at least once be connected to David or Israel. It’s simply not.

This leads to another piece of critical evidence. I have discussed Freemasonry—Satanism’s “magic cloak”—at great length in other blogs, and Freemasonry is riddled with signs and symbols. Would it surprise you to know that, among them, is a certain six-pointed star? Yes, the same star that appears on Israel’s flag also shows up within Masonic lodges and on their precious trinkets. Take a look at this video, for example. Below are some of the images taken from it.

Further, here is an incredibly obvious connection from a popular Freemason lodge in Europe.

The Square and Compass in the center of a pentagram gives this away as a Freemason emblem. It’s curious, then, that the “Star of David” has been combined with these symbols.

Unlike the explanation of the Star provided earlier by the Board of Jewish Education , Freemasons—and members of other secret societies—see it somewhat differently. 33rd degree Freemason and author of the Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, Albert Mackey, explains the real meaning behind this star symbol:

Not surprisingly, this male-female symbolism—which is rooted in sexuality, since Freemasonry is fundamentally a sex cult—shows up in the most iconic Freemason symbol: the Square and Compass.

Note that the Square and Compass is formed by two interlaced triangles (though modified), as is the “Star of David.” Coincidence?

It should also be noted that the “secret art” of Freemasonry is none other than Witchcraft. If you recall, the hexagram passing as the “Seal of Solomon” has been used in the black arts. It’s no surprise, then, that Witchcraft books are also chock-full of allusions to the Star of David—which is the same symbol with a different name. Often times, the Star even takes center stage on the front covers.

Even more disturbing is that the all-seeing eye—which is a hallmark of Freemasonry and is undoubtedly a reference to Lucifer (see here)—is frequently placed within the Star, further proving the Satanic connection at play.

Take a look at the following examples, of which there are many more to be found:

Note the “all-seeing eye” in the center of most of these books. It’s the same eye that is often placed within the Square and Compass, which is worshipped by Freemasons and Satanic groups of all stripes.

We must stop and ask the question: why does this symbol—the “sacred” and “holy” symbol of David and God’s people—show up all over Freemasonry lodges and their beloved trinkets, as well as on (and within) Witchcraft literature?

For good measure, just take a look at how this symbol is used in all manner of religions and Satanic causes. Trust me, this is just a small sampling of its uses.

There is something else, too. Unlike the lack of biblical evidence for the Star of David being attached to David or God’s people, there is biblical evidence that the symbol is “pagan” (read “Satanic”).

Acts 7:43 reads as follows:

“You have taken up the tabernacle of Molek and the star of your god Rephan, the idols you made to worship. Therefore I will send you into exile’ beyond Babylon” (my emphasis).

If you don’t think this verse—and the OT passage it’s quoting (Amos 5:26)—is talking about what would later be called the Star of David, then I implore you to see this Google search for the “Star of Remphan.”

If you look at it, you will find exactly the same image that is being passed off as the Star of David.

Remphan (or Rephan) was a prominent pagan deity. He was known as the “star god,” and was also called Saturn or Moloch. Remphan is who is really being honored with this six-pointed star, and it has been utilized and propagated through the innumerable secret (and Satanic) societies of our time, of which Freemasonry is king.

I challenge anyone to find evidence of this symbol being associated with Israel in the ancient past. It isn’t there. Could it be that, yet again, things are not what they seem to be. Have we been lied to about this issue, too? At this point, that should be a rhetorical question.

Personally, I am growing tired of the endless parade of lies. So little of what we are told is actually the truth these days: so very little.


Let’s call the so-called “Star of David” what it really is: the Star of Remphan. Far from being a sign of holiness and purity, the symbol is unholy and impure. In fact, it’s simply Satanic.

You may not want to believe this, and I take no joy in proclaiming it. But such is the way of the world. Satan—the “god of this world” (2 Cor. 4:4)—oversees virtually everything. I have done my best to show this within my many blogs and videos, but I’m afraid that the “hole” is far blacker and deeper than any one person can expose. In fact, it’s blacker and deeper than an entire army of spiritual warriors can expose.

Who can fathom the depths of Satan?

I fully understand how difficult it is to accept much of this, as I had to walk down that forlorn path myself. However, what I came to realize is that the Bible is flat out telling the truth. It’s telling the truth, and most of humanity is not. The world really is corrupt and fallen, and Satan really does control almost every part of it.

With this in mind, is it really absurd to think that Satan has infiltrated the very nation that God once used to bring salvation to the world? I might suggest that not only is this a reasonable proposition, but that it should actually be expected. Nowhere is evil more powerful than when it masquerades as good. False prophets, teachers, and “people of the cloth” have done more spiritual damage to Christ’s followers over the centuries than any ruthless dictator.

As we know, Satan himself “masquerades as an angel of light” (2 Cor. 11:14). And why does he do that? Simply put: he knows that’s how he can wreak the most havoc.

Satan lives to corrupt God’s Creation, His people, and all His holy works.

In this case, Satan has used both the current nation of Israel and its beloved “Star of Remphan” for his own evil purposes. In doing so, he has yet again deceived the world.

I am a Christian teacher, author, and lecturer. Most importantly, I am a truth-seeker. My research has led me to both believe in and defend the veracity of the Bible, evaluating my own personal views in light of its teachings along the way. In addition to my blogs, I have written several books: "The Death Myth," "God Made the Aliens," "Spiritual Things," and most recently, "Missing Verses: 15 Beliefs the Bible Doesn't Teach." My hope in these endeavors is to give skeptics reasons to believe, to strengthen the faith of those who already do, and to challenge each of us to truly evaluate our own worldviews.

    1. I believe no part of that structure is from the time of Jesus or before. It was razed to the ground and parts were rebuilt later by the Romans. But, the swastika–like the “Star of David”–shows up in ancient pagan religions. Both are unholy.
