A Long, Long Time Ago in a Judeo/Christian Bible Far, Far Away, the Star of David Meant ‘As Above, So Below’
Well, it appears these early years of 21st century spiritual ignorance and darkness seem to be upon us indefinitely, so let’s have a quick pop quiz review of some simple Judeo/Christian Star of David Arithmetic. Here are the main equations:
As Above + So Below = THE
Mountain Top + Valley Bottom = JUDEO/CHRISTIAN
Up High in Heaven + Down Low on Earth = STAR
Top of the Sky + Bottom of the Sea = OF
Heavenly Heights + Depths of the Earth = DAVID
Skeptical religious scholars may still quibble about the ‘As Above, so Below’ metaphor’s ultimate origins (Adam/Eve/Cain/Abel) and whether it was ever in use among the ancient Hebrew Patriarchs, long before written history ever began. Nevertheless, the fact remains that no one will ever know for sure although the Bible seems proof enough there was on-going symbolic understanding about the Star of David among the Israelite Prophets who followed in Moses‘ footsteps.
Now called The Star of David...the symbol…means, simply ‘as above, so below – the spiritual realm is mirrored by the material’. Westerners say on earth as it is in heaven.

Indeed, the existing evidence strongly suggests it may well have been the Judeo/Christian tradition who initially introduced the ‘As Above, so Below’ linguistic theme into many different emerging Christian cultures who then later adopted it as their own.

Tragically, when it comes to the Star of David, there seems to be far too many Jew-hating, race-baiting, clearly exclusionary voices which almost always seem to come from the Protestant Christian Community. In the end it is quite sad that these clearly hostile, and possibly violent, lunatics literally drown out any and all of the more reasonable voices with their so-called independent Bible ‘research’ which purports to ‘prove’ the inherently evil origins of Jews, Judaism, and of course the Star of David. In order to fight back against these Protestant ‘Christian’ hate-mongers, a three-part comparison between SENSE and NONSENSE as it relates to the Star of David can be reads as follows:
It is not a Jewish symbol, but an occult symbol.
– The “Star of David” is Pagan, Jesus-is-Savior.com
SENSE: The Star of David is a widely recognized symbol of Judaism, named after King David of ancient Israel. (Star of David, New World Encyclopedia)
NONSENSE: It is not a Jewish symbol, but an occult symbol. (The “Star of David” is Pagan, Jesus-is-Savior.com)
EVEN MORE SENSE: Most people today associate the six pointed star (hexagram) with the Jewish Star of David (Magen David), as it is the modern symbol of Jewish identity and Judaism. In 1948 it was even adopted on the official flag of Israel. According to Wikipedia: “Its use as a symbol of the Jewish community dates to the 17th century.” (The Six-Pointed Star of Armenia, WordPress.com)
JUDAS MACCABAEUS: The Star of David is either a Jewish symbol or an Occult symbol. It cannot be both, because the Occult has been opposed to Judaism and also the Jewish people, for literally thousands of years. The claim that it is not a Jewish symbol when Jews around the world say that it is appears to a serious denial of reality.
The “Star of David” is Pagan.
SENSE: The Star of David and the five-pointed star are both symbols associated with Christianity. (Christian Star, Christian Symbols, About.com)
NONSENSE: The “Star of David” is Pagan. (Jesus-is-Savior.com)
A LOT MORE SENSE: While predominately recognized as a symbol of Judaism and Israel, many Christians identify with the Star of David as well. (Christian Star, Christian Symbols, About.com)
JUDAS MACCABAEUS: The Star of David is either a Pagan or Christian symbol. It cannot be both, because Christianity is not a Pagan religion and to say an age-old Christian symbol like the Star of David is Pagan is to basically say that Christianity is Pagan, a contradiction in terms which makes no sense whatsoever.
Star of David OR Star of Lucifer?
– Great Joy in Great Tribulation, MoreSureWord.com
SENSE: Lucifer is a Latin word which signifies the ‘morning star’. (Morning Star – Philologos, Philologos.org)
NONSENSE: Star of David OR Star of Lucifer? (Great Joy in Great Tribulation, MoreSureWord.com)
SOME MORE SENSE: The Star of David is a six-pointed star formed by two interlocking triangles, one pointing up, one pointing down….In the book of Revelation, Jesus is called the Morning Star – Revelation 2:28, Revelation 22:16. (Christian Star, About.com)
A FINAL SENSE: The name Lucifer originally denotes the planet Venus, emphasizing its brilliance…Metaphorically, the word is applied…finally to Jesus Christ Himself (II Peter 1:19; Apocalypse 22:16, “Exultet” of Holy Saturday) the true light of our spiritual life. (Lucifer, by Anthony John Maas. Catholic Encyclopedia 1913)
JUDAS MACCABAEUS: First of all, to even suggest that the Star of David may be the Star of Lucifer is to blindly assume that the Devil, the enemy of King David, Israel, the Jews and Judaism is in fact called ‘Lucifer’. Considering the known fact that Lucifer is simply Morning Star in the Latin language, then it may well be more appropriate to think of Jesus Christ as Lucifer, who is indeed a direct descendant of the Royal House of David symbolized by the Six-Pointed ‘Morning’ Star of David..
REALITY: The Star of David is NOT a symbol of the Occult. It was and is an official symbol of Judaism.
REALITY: The Star of David is NOT a Pagan symbol. It is a Christian symbol.
REALITY: The Star of David is NOT the Star of Lucifer. It is the family Coat-of-Arms of Rabbi Jesus, a genuine symbol of Jesus Christ the bright, Morning Star.
God bless reality and may God bless you all.
