That flag called the “Star Of David” has nothing to do with King Daud.
From the Encyclopedia Britannica: In his book Andrew Carrington mentions a date when the Rothschild’s took on a red star as a family emblem. “On February 23rd, 1744 Mayer Amschel Bauer, an Ashkenazi Jew, is born in Frankfurt, Germany, the son of Moses Amschel Bauer, a money lender and the proprietor of a counting house. Moses Amschel Bauer places a red sign above the entrance door to his counting house. This sign is a red hexagram (that geometrically and numerically translates into the number 666), which under Rothschild instruction will end up on the Israeli flag some two centuries later.”
These are some of the more commonly held beliefs about the origins of the Star of David. I found it interesting to find out where all these beliefs originated from.
The Moloch Connection:
Many claim the flags origins are with the Star of Moloch. The young martyr Steven in the book of Acts (Acts 7:43) mentioned that the Jews of his day worshiped the Star of Remphan.
Most scholars draw a connection between the Remphan and Chiun (Amos 5:26) like Nelson’s Bible Dictionary for example. Remphan/Chiun originated in Babylon, was the god of Saturn and possessed a Star. Bruce, F. and Lockyer, H. (1995). Nelson’s new illustrated Bible dictionary. Nashville: T. Nelson, pp.507-513.
Steven before he was executed, made the connection between the Star of the Jews and Moloch worship. But is it the same Star? We can’t be certain, but it appears that way.
“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.” NKJV. Steven was reproducing the entire history of the ancient Israelites up until then.
For a more definitive answer about Remphan and Chiun, I went to the Septuagint (LXX).
Oddly enough it was Steven’s numbering of the Jews who entered Egypt that first made me go searching in the Septuagint over a decade ago. My Septuagint studies have led me to believe that the early Church were reading the LXX and not the Masoretic text. In this instance also, I found Steven to be correct in his reference to Remphan. Amos Ch.5:26 in the LXX as quoted by Steven…” Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Raephan, the images of which ye made for yourselves.” Brenton, L. (2007). The Septuagint version of the Old Testament and Apocrypha. [Whitefish, Mont.]: Kessinger Pub, p.1089.
Why the KJV versions translate this as Chuin in Amos and Remphan in Acts I will never know.
The prophet Ezekiel was also highly critical of Moloch worship in Jerusalem prior to the Babylonian Captivity. The punishment for Moloch worship was outlined in Leviticus Ch.18:21. The penalty for Moloch worship was being cut-off from the land and cut-off from among their people. Leviticus Ch.21:28-29.
Leviticus 18:21 ‘And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the LORD.
Leviticus Ch.21:28-29 “Lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you.
For whoever commits any of these abominations, the persons who commit them shall be cut off from among their people.” NKJV.
It is for this reason the anti-Zionist Orthodox Jews, who protest in their thousands regularly don’t support the modern-day Zionist State of Israel. They believe the people were scattered because of the abominations committed in the land. And, are now destined to live in exile as Lights to the Nations of the world until Messiah returns. When Messiah returns, He will restore the people to the land. That is their belief.
The Rothschild’s Connection:
Others have drawn a connection between the Rothschild family emblem and the Israeli national flag. In his book Andrew Carrington mentions a date when the Rothschild’s took on a red star as a family emblem. “On February 23rd, 1744 Mayer Amschel Bauer, an Ashkenazi Jew, is born in Frankfurt, Germany, the son of Moses Amschel Bauer, a money lender and the proprietor of a counting house. Moses Amschel Bauer places a red sign above the entrance door to his counting house. This sign is a red hexagram (that geometrically and numerically translates into the number 666), which under Rothschild instruction will end up on the Israeli flag some two centuries later.”
Hitchcock, A. (2012). The Synagogue of Satan. 2nd ed. United States of America, p.247.
The Rothschild’s adopted the Red Hexagon, Rot (Red in German) Schild (shield or sign in German). As the Rothschild s were instrumental in the development of the modern-day State of Israel, it is their shield that was adopted on the Israeli flag. Except the Red was replaced by the Blue. That’s what a link from the Jewish Virtual Library which had information to a Rothschild Archive stated, but since then the information has been removed.
The Zionist Connection:
The Blue Star could’ve very well been adopted from Rothschild’s Red Star, as Theodor Herzl stated in his book, Der Judenstaat (The Jewish State) that the Zionists did not at that time possess a flag, it was only later, towards the end of Herzl’s untimely death that The Rothschild’s became involved in the development of the formation of the State of Israel. Herzl had this to say…
“THE FLAG We have no flag, and we need one. If we desire to lead many men, we must raise a symbol above their heads. I would suggest a white flag, with seven golden stars. The white field symbolizes our pure new life; the stars are the seven golden hours of our working day. For we shall march into the Promised Land carrying the badge of honor.”
Theodore Herzl, The Jewish State — Der Judenstaat.
Still very much in the period of modern-day Zionism, another contributor was mentioned in an article I read, this article related more to the design of the flag rather than the actual Magen David or Star of David.
“Actually, the flag design that David Wolffsohn came up with was one that had already been in circulation, although he most likely was not aware of it.
In 1882 Jews from Russia founded a town south of Jaffa named Rishon LeZion (“First to Zion”). It was funded in part by Baron Edmond de Rothschild. In the summer of 1885, the community started making plans to celebrate its third anniversary. One of the settlers, Israel Belkind, decided to make a flag for the occasion. Working with another settler, the two of them came up with the idea of a design that would look like a prayer shawl, with the Star of David in the center, between two blue stripes. The flag was adopted as the symbol of the town, and later, the word, Zion, was added in the center of the Star of David.” http://christinprophecy.org/…/the-story-behind-israels-flag/
“Dov Gutterman, “Rishon LeZiyyon Flag,” http://www.crwflags.com/FOTW/FLAGS/il%7Dz1885.html, pp. 1-2. Accessed on March 5, 2008.”
The Kabbalah Connection:
The most comprehensive material I was able to discover recently comes from none other than the founder of Modern-Day Kabbalah, Gershom Scholem. Scholem, was the Professor of Jewish Mysticism at Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
Firstly, he says that “The hexagram is not a Jewish symbol much less the symbol of Judaism.”
Scholem‘s focus appears to be mainly on the pentagram and hexagram, which have a long history in magic. In Jewish circles the hexagram was mentioned by Joshua ben Asaiah (600 B.C). It was also discovered next to a Swastika in a Synagogue in Capernaum. Many Middle Age Churches also adopted and used this emblem in their architecture.
“The Hexagram was made popular by the Kabbalist, Isaac Luria. Max Grunwald wrote in 1973 about how the Kabbalist’s viewed the hexagram resembling the ten spheres of the Sefirot. The lower and upper spheres come together to create Jewish magic.”
“The first mention of the Hexagram in Kabbalah was in (1280-90) Joseph Gikatilla in Gates of Righteousness.”(end https://cherylmasonblogs.com/2019/05/29/the-star-of-david-where-did-it-come-from/).
So there you have it. The flag of Israel is one which addresses demons, a clarion call to them, a “pledge of allegiance”, so to speak.
This has meaning. This flag issue is central to the core values of the nation of Israel. They are almost all unsaved anti-Christs. Darkness is the way of life there. Talmud is their official government, and that is a recent development, followed by the firebombing of
Dresden Gaza and the rape of Nanjing Gaza. Savage, soulless genocide. Yahuah did not send them to murder the Palestinians.
Israel will fall. America will fall with her. The two most Bible-centric nations on earth have been enticed to levels of sin which have reached the nostrils of Yahuah. First Israel and America, and then the rest of the world.

The Origin Of The Star Of Remphan
The star of Remphan, also called the star of Solomon, refers to the god “Saturn,” which was brought to the Jewish people after the promiscuity of Solomon with which he married many wives and turned his face away from that of God as they engaged in idolatry (1st Kings 11 vs. 7 – 8). One of his wives – the daughter of Pharaoh in particular, introduced him to these practices, and despite the misconceptions, David, his father, had nothing to do with this star, nor did it represent the people of God.
Solomon was rich and affluent (1st Kings 3 vs. 1), and he could afford to marry many wives as he deemed fit, and with the lust and power of that magnitude, there was a price to pay as he was led into witchcraft by the lady above – into the worship of Kabala.
As Solomon gave himself and devoted to these practices, he started to build altars for them – for Moloch (Saturn) too. Saturn has been vastly associated with Satan, the color black, and some might even argue that satan was coined from the word Saturn. Also, as we all know that Saturn is a planet that is the farthest from the sun, and surprisingly, the northern part of this planet has the shape of a hexagon.
As this information might come as a surprise, when we piece them together, it’s starting to make sense in the argument that this symbol is indeed evil. There is much evidence to name it so.
Why Is The Star Considered Evil?
There are many arguments as to why this symbol should be considered evil or otherwise. Some consider it just a seal for the Jewish people and not a religious symbol. However, some elements of the symbol have stoked the fire of it being considered evil. You can keep reading to find out more below.
Considered to be associated with witchcraft, occult, and everything demonology right from time, this shape has fallen under scrutiny. It was used in some of the ancient occult to offer a portal/channel dark spirit and forces with their demonic energy, and only people who had given themselves over to dark forces could cast it.
The word “hex,” which means applying a symbol to something or someone, was considered an act to curse the carrier. Anybody who carries such a symbol would be cursed going forward. In this context, anybody carrying the star of Remphan would be considered cursed and a channel for demonic spirit and energy. Some other sects go a step further, by drawing an eye in the middle of the hexagram, which gives off the appearance of a watching evil eye.
As seen in movies – which can be an extension of what people practice in real-life, some groups practice this by drawing this symbol on the ground with candles while chanting to summon an entity into the drawn diagram on the floor.
What Is The Star Of Remphan?
The star of Remphan is a symbol associated with the god Moloch – Saturn. It was first heard of notably in the bible as one of the gods’ King Solomon made an altar to worship after he married the daughter of Pharaoh – one of his many wives and concubines.
Like we said above, the star consists majorly of two equilateral triangles overlaid on each other. To get an idea of what it looks like, you can take a look at the flag of the state of Israel.
Who Was Chiun?
Chiun is another appellation to Remphan – which can be translated into words such as “idol” and “ detestable thing.”
As we have said above Chiun in this case is also Remphan, a god worshiped by the jews. They made small tabernacles for it and carried them along everywhere they went. Chiun, or Remphan in this case, came under heavy scrutiny when Stephen was about to be martyred as he spoke heavily against the idolatry and stiff-neckedness of the Jews who had departed from the laws of God.
Who Is Baal Of The Bible?
According to the bible, Baal is a deity of Phoenician and Canaanite descent. Its shape was like that of a bull or ram, and it was said to be the god of life and fertility, who was said to bring rain and dew to the Canaan area. The Canaanites credited their bounty harvest to Baal whenever they got a good harvest.
However, in the absence of God, people tend to make a graven image for themselves to worship (Exodus 20 vs. 4 – 5), and this was exactly what happened to the Israelites in the bible (Exodus 32 vs. 4).
When the Israelites were freshly freed from Egypt, they mixed with the Moab women, and they were under the temptation to worship Baal – this idol worship rose during the reign of Ahab as King.
Is Saturn Mentioned In The Bible?
Saturn was one of the most expressly mentioned planets in the Bible, along with Venus and Earth. It is also represented by Chiun and Remphan in the bible, and in Hebrew, is expressed as the planet in charge of the Jews. When and Wherever you see the Star of Remphan mentioned in the bible, it is in accordance with Saturn.
With the brief background check and biblical reference we have been able to make about the star of Remphan, we can comfortably say that it was made out as an idol for people to worship. Also, in ancient and recent manners, it has been used in the work of evil and dark power/magic – things that are not of God.
