Star of Molech
Star of Molech (Baal), or magen David ('Shield
of David'), is a strong symbol of Jewish identity, and as a
hexagram it represents the interaction of the Divine with
the mortal It
has strong links with the Kabbalah, and is sometimes known
as the Seal of Solomon or the
Creator's Star. This appears to be the
same star figure used on Israel's flag in blue on a white
Did you offer Me slaughtered animals and sacrifices during
forty years in the wilderness, O house of Israel? You also
took up the tabernacle of Moloch, And the star of your god
Remphan, Images which you made to worship; And I will carry
you away beyond Babylon.’ Acts 7:43
Did ye bring unto me sacrifices and oblations in the
wilderness forty years, O house of Israel? Yea, ye
took up the tabernacle of your Moloch, and Chiun your
images, the star of your god, which ye had made to
yourselves; and I will cause you to go into
captivity beyond Damascus, saith Jehovah, whose name is
the God of hosts. Amos 5:25
They go up on their roofs and bow to the sun, moon, and
stars. They ‘follow the Lord,’ but worship Molech too!
I will destroy them. 6And I will destroy those
who formerly worshiped the Lord, but now no longer do, and
those who never loved him and never wanted to.”
Word study from
Smiths Bible Dictionary:
Acts 7:43, and Chi´un, Amos 5:26, have been supposed to
be names of an idol worshipped secretly by the Israelites in the
wilderness. Much difficulty has been occasioned by this
corresponding occurrence of two names so wholly different in
sound. The most reasonable opinion seems to be that Chiun was a
Hebrew or Semitic name, and Remphan an Egyptian equivalent
substituted by the LXX. This idol corresponded probably to
Saturn or Molech.
2. astron (798),
practically the same as No. 1, is used (a) in the sing. in Acts
7:43, "the star of the god Rephan," rv, the symbol or
"figure," probably of Saturn, worshiped as a god,
apparently the same as Chiun in Amos 5:26 (Rephan being the
Egyptian deity corresponding to Saturn, Chiun the Assyrian); (b)
in the plur., Luke 21:25; Acts 27:20; Heb. 11:12.

I could find no research of what is known as
the "mogen david" to be the star of David.
Only the star of Solomon who was very involved in witchcraft
and idol worship.
This symbol is used in many witchcraft and
Masonic rituals because it links back to the terrible things
that Solomon did when he dishonored God.
Since this symbol has so much of a cloud
over it and was used to identify the Jewish people for
destruction and murder during the holocaust, i believe it may
be more honoring to God to use the Menorah. The Menorah
is a clear cut biblical symbol and without any doubts honors
Symbols like "mogen david"
dishonor God because of their use in the occult and the
horrific use it was put
to during the holocaust to mark the Jewish people for death.
My love for God and the Hebrew people
made me chose NOT to have this symbol be the one I chose to
honor Israel and God's people. I am grateful for the
scriptures they kept as a light and a guide to my life.
Instead I use the biblical symbol of the candlestick or lamp
stand of the true Tabernacle. Kathy Black
