The Bible makes no mention whatsoever of King David having ever had an emblem. There’s only one applied symbolic star that’s mentioned in the Bible, and it has to do with the occult.
“You also carried along Moloch your king and Kiyyun, your images, the star of your gods which you made for yourselves.” Amos 5:26
“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.” Acts 7:43
Is the star of Remphan/Kiyyun or Moloch the so-called star of David? It is quite possible it might be one of them, since the Hexagram that supposedly represents King David’s emblem or star has been used in occult practices for millennia.
From The Star of David-Is it Pagan? by William F. Dankenbring:
“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 Cyclopaedia 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).
“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.”
Now why would some Christians make use of this so-called Star of David, especially when it is merged with the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ? It was Jews who, wanting to curse Jesus, combined the Hex (or curse) with the Cross, and propagated it in order to fool gullible Christians into believing that Christianity is an extension of Judaism (previously called Pharisaism or Rabbinism, a satanic cult and not an Abrahamic faith).
Brethren, don’t fall for it. Because if Jesus is forever the same, so is evil. What has Light to do with Darkness?
