What ¡s The Origin of The 8ix-Pointed 8tar?
The 8tar of David

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

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 5:26, 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.
The Star of David
Another theory about the origin of the shape is that it is simply 2 of the 3 letters in the
name David: in its Hebrew spelling, David is transliterated as 'D-W-D'. In Biblical
Hebrew, the letter 'D' (Dalet) was written in a form much like a triangle, similar to the
Greek letter "Delta" (). The symbol may have been a simple family crest formed by
flipping and juxtaposing the two most prominent letters in the name. The letter "W" in
this case could reference the compositing operation of the two Deltas.

The Hexagram
The hexagram, like the pentagram, was and is used in practices of the occult and is
attributed to the 7 'old' planets outlined in astrology.
The six-pointed star is commonly used both as a talisman and for conjuring spirits in
the practice of witchcraft. In the Book The History and Practice of Magic, Vol. 2, the
six-pointed star is called the talisman of Saturn and it is also referred to as the Seal
of Solomon. Details are given in this book on how to make these symbols and the
materials to use.
Dr. John Dee, the court astrologist of Queen Elizabeth I, in his book Hieroglyphic
Monad, includes the following quote: "'Mahatma Letters,' page 345: 'The double
triangle viewed by the Jewish Kabbalists as Solomon's Seal is...the Sri--Antana of
the Archaic Aryan Temple, the Mystery of Mysteries, a geometrical synthesis of the
whole occult doctrine. The two interlaced triangles are the Buddham-Gums of
Creation. They contain the 'squaring of the Circle,' the 'Philosophers' Stone,' the
great problems of Life and Death--the mystery of Evil. The Chela who can explain
this sign from every one of its aspects is virtually an Adept.'" (John Dee, Hieroglyphic
Monad, Dr John Dee, WEISER BOOKS, Boston MA/York Beach, ME, page 76)
In the Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, we read: "The interlacing triangles or deltas
symbolize the union of the two principles or forces, the active and passive, male and
female, pervading the universe... The two triangles, one white and the other black,
interlacing, typify the mingling of apparent opposites in nature, darkness and light,
error and truth, ignorance and wisdom, evil and good, throughout human life."
(Encyclopedia of Freemasonry, Albert G. Mackey, 33rd Degree Freemason, and
Charles T. McClenachan, 33rd Degree Freemason, p. 801, as quoted from
secondary Source Codex Magica by Texe Marrs.)
Bradley, author of Secrets of the Freemasons, claims: "the hexagram is widely
associated with the occult, and is considered the most powerful of Satan's symbols,
containing '666.' Occultists also call it the 'trud' and us it in necromantic ceremonies
to summon evil spirits." (Bradley, Secrets of the Freemasons, page 45.)
