12 Tribes = 12 Parts and/or Sides to the Star of David

 

The star has 12 lines about its perimeter, possibly representing the 12 Tribes of Israel.

Some note that the Star of David is a complicated interlocking figure which has not six (hexogram) but rather 12 (dodecogram) sides. One can consider it as composed of two overlapping triangles or as composed of six smaller triangles emerging from a central hexogram. Like the Jewish people, the star has 12 sides, representing the 12 tribes of Israel.

– Star of David, by Rabbi Shraga Simmons, Aish.com
Some say that one triangle represents the ruling tribe of Judah and the other the former ruling tribe of Benjamin. It is also seen as a dalet and yud, the two letters assigned to Judah. There are 12 Vav, or “men,” representing the 12 tribes or patriarchs of Israel.

Twelve Tribes = 12 Parts and/or Sides to the Star of David

 

There were many ways in Jewish history to order the encampment of the tribes; Dr. Cohen mentions three of them and the third is:

“Jewish folklore describes the encampment of the tribes in the desert as forming a Star of David, twelve focal points being connected one to another, and all of these arranged around a central, thirteenth, focus–the Tabernacle and the tribe of Levi ministering the sacred service. A Yiddish anthology for the holidays describes the unique arrangement of the Israelite camp and its symbolism as follows:

According to this picture, the Star of David is the symbol of tribal unity in Israel, a single formation protecting the Sanctuary shared by all”.

H&M pulls shirt with skull inside Star of David after complaints

H&M pulls shirt with skull inside Star of David after complaints

Shoppers said the top – which appears to show a human skull inside a Star of David – was offensive and could be interpreted as anti-Semitic. H&M was quick to pull the piece and apologize.

Fashion brand H&M yanked a controversial tank top that showed a human skull inside a Star of David, apologizing to infuriated customers.

Shopper Eylon Aslan-Levy of the U.K. brought attention to the shirt when he posted a snapshot on Twitter on Sunday, later calling it an “obviously unfortunate mistake.”

It’s not clear what the shirt means – if anything – but altering religious symbols is still dangerous territory.

A Long, Long Time Ago in a Judeo/Christian Bible Far, Far Away, the Star of David Meant ‘As Above, So Below’

 AsSoDevilstPetersburgLElements

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.

– The Star of David or, Seal of Solomon, by ose Sinclair, The Bible Decoded

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.

A Definitive Star of David Definition

The Star of David or Magen David (Hebrew: מגן דוד; literally, “David’s Shield”) is a six pointed shape, formed by two equilateral triangles; one flipped on top of the other symmetrically…The symbol has been used extensively in Judaism, Christianity and Islam during the first millenium CE. During some periods, it was associated with Christianity or Islam more than with Judaism.

The Star of David above the American Eagle’s Head on the Back of the One Dollar Bill

The Star of David above the American Eagle's Head on the Back of the One Dollar Bill

Curiously, the Great Seal of the United States appears to contain an image of a Star of David. At the top of the obverse side of the Great Seal is a cluster of thirteen stars shaped in a very obvious “Star of David” shape, consisting of 13 smaller American Stars probably symbolizing the 13 original colonies, above the eagle’s head. This image is also found on the reverse side of the U.S. one dollar bill. No-one is absolutely sure today why that is so. Some historians think it was a way of showing gratitude to Haym Solomon (1740-1785) who was Jewish and is acknowledged as the prime financier of the American side during the American Revolution and the American Revolutionary War of 1776, which many are not aware of. Some maintain Solomon designed the great seal himself.

Another reason has been postulated that perhaps it was a way of the Founding Fathers of the United States acknowledging the God of the Hebrew Bible because of their strong devotion to the “Old Testament” as a guide to life. Others have seen more sinister reasons that actually border on anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

Whatever, the reasons may be, there is no question, that the shape of the Star of David is clearly emblazoned on the US’ Great Seal and on all US one dollar bills today.

Comparing Sense and Nonsense about the Star of David

Image

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:

____________________________

ImageIt 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.

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

Image

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.

The Star of David Symbolism in the First Chapter of the Book of Genesis

The magi’s coming to Jerusalem in order to pay homage to the king of the Jews shows that they seek in Israel, in the messianic light of the STAR OF DAVID, the one who will be king of the nations. Their coming means that pagans can discover Jesus and worship him as Son of God and Savior of the world only by turning towards the Jews and receiving from them the messianic promise as contained in the Old Testament.

– The Catechism of the Catholic Church

    EnochPage180x162

Just about every God-fearing reader of the Bible knows the basic symbolism behind the Star of David which is composed of two opposite-pointing intersecting equilateral triangles perfectly placed on top of each other to create a completely symmetrical six-pointed star. Indeed, even the very name of this geometrical form has a coherent meaning to it, as man throughout the ages has noticed the way the stars and even the sun will sometimes sparkle (or twinkle), thus appearing to have six-points to them, even though they are still obviously round, circular dots in the sky.

Heaven___Heavan

One need not be a believer in Judaism to understand how this symbol provides one of most simple, yet comprehensible, ikons used to represent such concepts as Heaven and Earth, God and Man, Soul and Body, Material and Spiritual, Mountain and Valley, etc. Throughout the Middle Ages, many a Christian Gentile, especially the more learned among them, understand this symbol as, not only representing a unity of opposites, such as the elements of Earth and Air, or Water and Fire, but also as an expression of complementary concepts, much like the ebony and ivory keys to a piano which, when played correctly and by using the correct combinations, was capable of creating something beautiful- like the Latin Mass at its finest and most profound.

Historically speaking, the Catholic Church wasn’t very prone to call the hexagram the Star of David (or Magen David in Hebrew). In fact, for several centuries before the modern term ‘Star of David’ ever became part of everyday vocabulary, and long before this symbol ever became specifically Jewish, the Church preferred to refer to the hexagram as the Star of Creation, or the Creator’s Star. Now the obvious question that might come to readers’ minds is why on earth did the Christian authorities ever refer to this symbol in such a manner. The Star of Creation? Whatever does that mean?

The six-pointed star is the Creator’s Star or Star of Creation. Its six points stand for the six days of creation.

NewEnglishOpenBible200x145

The easy answer is to simply point out that God’s Creation includes both the Heavens and the Earth, Mountains and Valleys, Clouds and Seas, Volcanoes and Tornadoes, so the symbolic representation of BOTH distinctly different items placed together would of course signify the reality that Creation is filled with a diverse array of BOTH phenomenon- not to mention the fact that every snowflake is basically a Star of David, in one form or another.

All of this is true of course, but it doesn’t really truly answer the question completely. Why not call it the God’s Star, rather than the Creator’s Star? Obviously, there must be a reason behind this particular designation and the following analysis of the Creation story in the 1st Chapter of Genesis (Genesis 1:1-27) is a humble attempt to explain the reasons why-

This simple, basic analysis provides one of best ways in explaining the ultimate reason why the Catholic Church, while acknowledging the hexagram as a legitimate family seal for the House of David (including Jesus Chris), has still tended, for literally hundreds of years, to refer to the Star of David as the Star of Creation. Considering the inherent common sense seen in the above interpretation of the Creation story in Genesis 1, it should be fairly easy to understand why.

The Star of David Symbols of the Four Elements- Earth, Water, Air, and Fire

 

Fire: a triangle pointing up.
Air: a triangle pointing up and with a horizontal line through the middle of it.
Water: a triangle pointing down.
Earth: a triangle pointing down and with a horizontal line through the middle of it.

– The Four Elements, Angelfire.com

_______________________

One of the Oldest, yet still the best, most popular, and most misunderstood Symbolic Representations of the Four Elements bases itself upon two sets of opposing equilateral triangles which come together to form the Star of David. All things considered, most especially the fact that Christian Europe has been using this particular Alchemical insignia since the Middle Ages, one can rightfully claim the entire system of symbolizing the Four Elements is a classic example of the Judeo/Christian Tradition, both then and now. What follows is a brief listing of the most common form of triangles as they relate to the Four Elements of God’s Creation:

The Ancient Triangle Symbols of the Four Elements
1) FIRE: Upward Triangle colored Red
2) WATER: Downward Triangle colored Blue
3) AIR: Upward Triangle colored Yellow with horizontal dash through the upper tip of Triangle
4) EARTH: Downward Triangle colored Green with a horizontal dash drawn through the lower tip of Triangle

In essence, the Star of David provides the most simplistic (and easy to draw) method of representing the various combinations of either Air and Earth, Fire and Water, Air and Water, or Fire and Earth.

Opposing elements are on opposite sides…and are distinguished by the presence or absence of the crossbar within the triangle…Air and earth are opposites and have the crossbar. Water and fire are also opposites, and lack the crossbar.

– Elemental Qualities, by Catherine Breyer, About.com

Also, even Earth and Water may be drawn using a Star of David, in spite of the fact that both of them have Downward Triangles as their official symbols. Why? Because Water is considered lighter than Earth and so becomes an Upward Triangle so that both together still form a Star of David, just as Fire is lighter is than Air and therefore represented with a Star of David when combined.

The Blatantly Obvious Star of David = Earth + Air = Water + Fire
The Somewhat Obvious Star of David = Earth + Fire = Water = Air
The Not so Obvious Star of David = Earth + Water = Air + Fire

References to the Triangular Symbolism of the Four Elements

Each element is either warm or cold, and this corresponds with a male or female gender…The orientation of the triangle is determined by warmth or coldness, male or female. Male, warm elements point upward, ascending toward the spiritual realm. Female, cold elements point downward, descending into the earth.

Each element has a symbol and color. Common symbols are Fire: a triangle pointing up. Air: a triangle pointing up and with a horizontal line through the middle of it. Water: a triangle pointing down. Earth: a triangle pointing down and with a horizontal line through the middle of it.

– The Four Elements, Angelfire.com

The four classic elements are still essential symbols of the cultures and belief systems of many groups, including Native Americans, pagans and various tribal groups throughout the world…During the Greek Hellenic civilization (323-146 B.C.), the symbols used to represent the four elements of Greek physics were based on the triangle:

Fire: Triangle points up
Water: Triangle points down
Air: Triangle points up with a horizontal line through center of triangle
Earth: Triangle points down with a horizontal line through center of triangle

Understanding the Differences between the Star of David and the Seal of Solomon

In Medieval Jewish, Islamic and Christian legends, the Seal of Solomon was a magical signet ring said to have…the symbol now called the Star of David (hexagram), often within a circle, usually with the two triangles interlaced (hence chiral) rather than intersecting.

______________________________________________

When one looks closely enough at the picture above, the differences between the Star of David (on the Left) and the Seal of Solomon (on the Right) should become readily apparent. By tradition, the Star of David has only 2-Dimensional OVERLAPPING (or intersecting) triangles, while the Seal of Solomon always has 3-Dimensional INTERWOVEN (or interlaced) triangles. Because of this, the Seal of Solomon may also sometimes be called the Star of David, although this remains technically incorrect. On the other hand, the Seal of Solomon, by definition, MUST appear to have interwoven triangles, otherwise it is, by definition, just another Star of David.According to legend, King Solomon supposedly took the rather simple, two-dimensional Star of David he inherited from his Royal father and managed to improve upon it by having the two opposite triangles appear as if they were interwoven with one another. Thus, the Star of David then became the Seal of Solomon and the rest, as they say, is history. A rather interesting take on the very real differences between the Star of David and the Seal of Solomon reads as follows:
______________________________________________

Uniting the Water Triangle [facing downwards] with the Fire Triangle [facing upwards], the Hexagram is formed. It forms a six pointed star also known as the Seal of Solomon. This symbol is a [different type of] Star of David, the national symbol of Israel (God’s chosen nation). The difference between the Star of David and the seal [of Solomon] is the triangles which make up the seal [Solomon] interlock and the two triangles of the Star of David lie flat against each other.

______________________________________________

The traditional understanding that the Star of David and the Seal of Solomon have fundamental differences in both their origins and visual appearances, seems to have been nearly lost in modern times. What’s most frustrating is that more a few modern dictionaries have gotten the essential differences between these two distinct types of hexagrams completely wrong, thus misleading everybody. The biggest visual clue is the way that the Seal of Solomon’s triangular lines look like they are either above or beneath one another without ever truly intersecting. Apparently, this was never the case with the Star of David. To be specific, King David used the symbol as a short form of his written signature and as a battle insignia painted on the shields of his fellow Israelite soldiers. In both cases, the iconographic complexity seen in the Seal of Solomon was never really needed and therefore never developed. In contrast, the Seal of Solomon was thought to have been an actual Royal Seal used throughout King Solomon’s reign, a hand-held device which stamped an image upon either a puddle of wax, or clay, or even a form of paper made with animal skins. These Seals were usually custom-made by professional artists and were thus far more complex in appearance than any written signature or hand-drawn war emblem. In truth, one could say that both symbols were simply different versions of the Star of David. However, the Seal of Solomon has always been depicted with three-dimensional, interwoven (or interlaced) triangles. It is most unfortunate that literally no one these days really knows, or even cares, about what a Seal of Solomon actually is anyway. However, for the sake of precision, one should define the Star of David as being comprised of OVERLAPPING triangles, just as the Seal of Solomon (Solomon’s Seal)should always have the appearance of INTERLACED (or INTERWOVEN) triangles instead. The actual, and factually correct, dictionary definitions of these two emblems are listed below:
______________________________________________

(Star of David) n. – A symbol consisting of two OVERLAPPED equilateral triangles forming a star with six points, used as a symbol of Judaism. It is also called Magen David, Mogen David, and Shield of David, and is shaped identically to the hexagram and Solomon’s seal. It is used on the flag of the modern state of Israel.

– Collaborative International Dictionary of English, Dictionary.net

(Solomon’s Seal) n. – A mystic symbol consisting of two INTERLACED triangles forming a star with six points, often with one triangle dark and one light, symbolic of the union of soul and body. It is shaped identically to the hexagram and Star of David, distinguished only in its usage.

Among the various myths and legends concerning this age-old Biblical symbol, two of them stand out in particular. The first one concerns the reasons behind why the hexagram was ever called a star (or shield), while the second story explains the intricate three-dimensional pattern seen on the Seal of Solomon, but usually never with the Star of David. Now as to why the hexagram was ever called a Star, the main reason should be quite obvious to most observers. As nearly everybody would agree, the six-pointed shape itself bear a striking visual resemblance to the twinkling effect one experiences when looking directly at either a star, or the sun, through a somewhat hazy atmosphere.

Twinkle (Upward Triangle), Twinkle (Downward Triangle) little star, how I wonder what you are (Star of David). Up above the world so high (Upward Triangle), like a diamond in the sky (Downward Triangle)…

– An interpretation of the song ‘Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star’

There is also a Biblical reason why the hexagram has been called a star and it concerns a certain, obscure prophecy found in the Book of Numbers. Keeping in mind that this was written long before King David was ever born, the relevant verse talks about an unknown future leader of Israel who will rise to power and go on to defeat the traditional enemies of the Israelites- the Moabites for example. This future hero is metaphorically described as ‘a Star’ which ‘shall come forth from Jacob’, obviously meaning a yet-to-born descendant from the one of the twelve tribes of Israel. Because of the importance of the Davidic Kingdom, quite a few scholars claim this passage from Numbers should be seen as a direct reference to the later military success and subsequent rule of King David. Indeed, David official founding of the Kingdom of Israel in Jerusalem was the first event of extreme significance which had occurred in Israel since the time period recorded in the Book of Numbers. Yet the question remains as to why the hexagram, rather than David himself, is the ‘Star’ mentioned in Scriptures. The best, and probably only correct answer to this is that the original Star of David served as his personalized signature- comprised of two triangular Hebrew letters written on top of each other with one of them turned upside down. In short, the hexagram was simply a uniquely clever way David wrote the first and last initials to his own name. Therefore, the claim that the six-pointed hexagram used for David’s name was also a perfect symbolic representation of the Biblically prophesied ‘Star’ of ‘Jacob’ happens to be fairly logical, at least in a metaphorical sense. Also, because the Bible just so happens to be filled to the brim with metaphors, this legendary explanation may indeed be the real truth behind the origins of the six-pointed Star.

Turning to the Judeo/Christian legends surrounding the Seal of Solomon and the reason behind the change in name from Father (Star of David) to Son (Seal of Solomon), one finds the same basic underlying storyline, regardless of whether or not the specific Star of David folklore comes from Judaism, Christianity, or Islam. First, as previously mentioned, the more complex looking six-pointed star with interwoven triangles simply Solomon’s way of improving upon his father David’s original design for their family coat-of-arms. This three-dimensional hexagram was also a far more appropriate insignia for a King of Israel and his Royal family to have as their personal seal. Even so, there was also a deeper, more profound reason behind the interwoven appearance of the Seal of Solomon’s two interlaced triangles. Apparently, this specific design served as a visual talisman providing spiritual protection and control against the forces of evil. Not only was the Seal thought to ward against, or scare off, demons and other evil spirits, it also helped to trap, contain, and control them- thus rendering them harmless to mere mortals. To truly understand how and why this worked, notice how the Seal’s interlaced lines have an eerie, maze-like appearance to them, going back and forth, above and behind each other, in a ceaseless, never-ending pattern. This infinite sense of complexity was said to cause disorientation and utter confusion in any demon who dared to look directly at the symbol. More than two thousand years later, the Medieval Christians (as well as Jews) also put their trust in the Seal of Solomon, believing it provided ample protection from the forces of darkness. Three different online sources confirm the ‘magical’ history of this symbol:

It was also common to record the seal on a frame or lintel of the entrance door to homes…with the same protective character against the spirits or to potential fires.

______________________________________________

One might apt to conclude that both the form and function of the Seal of Solomon were in perfectly alignment, thus explaining the legendary spiritual powers this symbol was believed to possess. These days, Christians (and Jews) are free to choose to believe or disbelieve in its significance, yet even today, in the 21st century, the Seal’s actual power over the minds of men (and women) has yet to disappear completely. Indeed, look at the dozens and dozens, perhaps even hundreds, if not thousands, of modern, educated adults who still use this symbol to practice magic and/or witchcraft. Even if one doesn’t believe in any magic whatsoever, there still has to be a reason why so many fellow humans have such an on-going obsession with this one particular geometric shape. as if by its very appearance the supernatural will then become possible. A more balanced view concerning the power of the Star of David/Seal of Solomon can be found in the Catholic Church of today. Mentioning the Star of David by name, the official Catechism of the Catholic Church reads as follows:
______________________________________________

The magi’s coming to Jerusalem in order to pay homage to the king of the Jews shows that they seek in Israel, in the messianic light of the STAR OF DAVID, the one who will be king of the nations. Their coming means that pagans can discover Jesus and worship him as Son of God and Savior of the world only by turning towards the Jews and receiving from them the messianic promise as contained in the Old Testament.

______________________________________________

In conclusion, the specific place that the hexagram actually holds in terms of the Judeo/Christian ‘big picture’ shows a long and extensive history of Christian use dating back centuries to the Middle Ages. Hopefully, Christian respect and admiration for this particular emblem will extend itself into an open friendliness, rather than hostility, towards those who still practice and believe in Judaism, This seems to be the general attitude of today’s Catholic Church and the specific and deliberate reference to the Star of David in the most recent edition of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (just cited above) is even further proof that times have changed for the better.

$1 — The Eye of the Pyramid is One-Half the Star of David — $1

Too far by half…

– A common British slang phrase

They are higher than the Heavens Above. What can you do? They are deeper than the depths Below. What can you know?

– Job 11:8

Eye Above the Pyramid + Eye Below the Pyramid = The Star of David


The mystery of the Eye of the Pyramid has both puzzled and intrigued many Americans, and more than a few foreigners, for well over 200 years, since 1782 to be exact. The origins of this design are sometimes believed to be connected to the Freemasons, but even a little bit of research reveals that this is simply not the case at all. At the time, a few, but not all, the Founding Fathers, were members of Freemasonry, but literally every one of them had been baptized and brought up a Church-going Christian, as the tradition of the time dictated. Even the great ‘heretic’ Benjamin Franklin had been raised in a happy, joyous, loving Christian home where he was, quite literally, the only non-believer in the entire family. His relatives would laugh and scold at his alleged atheism.

Also, the most convincing evidence that the Eye of the Pyramid has nothing to do with Freemasonry happens to be the documented historical fact that four out the five men who even had say in the design of the U.S. Great Seal were NOT Freemasons. The only one who was, Benjamin Franklin, was never able to get any of his design suggestions approved by the American government overseeing final approval of the project. In other words, over 80% of those who originally designed the Eye of the Pyramid were NOT Freemasons, thus completely disproving the so-called Masonic influence on the final appearance of the Great Seal of the United States.

So where exactly did the idea for an Eye floating on top of an unfinished pyramid come from anyway? Well, the general notion of God benevolently watching over humanity from up above in the sky (the Heavens) had already a major theme of Christian civilization long, long before the American Revolution. On more than a few occasions, Christian artists and illustrators would use the theme of a giant eye in the sky overlooking the earth, in a symbolic attempt to represent the pervading reality of God’s actual presence in this world. One source explains it in the following manner:

[The All-Seeing Eye’s] meaning in all cases, however, was that commonly given it by society at large – a reminder of the constant presence of God. For example, in 1614 the frontispiece of The History of the World by Walter Raleigh showed an eye in a cloud labeled “Providentia” overlooking a globe….The eye of Providence was part of the common cultural iconography of the 17th and 18th centuries. When placed in a triangle, the eye went beyond a general representation of God to a strongly Trinitarian statement.

– MasonicInfo.com

With this in mind, one can reasonably conclude that historically speaking, the Eye in the Sky was a thoroughly Christian idea, and had absolutely nothing to do with Egyptian Paganism or some other exotic, foreign influence. Therefore, the never-ending parade of conspiracies about the Eye of the Pyramid one hears about and constantly sees on-line should always be taken in stride. When it comes to the back of the dollar bill, the manure tends to get thick and very smelly, This includes some of the absurd claims that the Eye is an inherently anti-Christian symbol, and possibly even Satanic. Indeed, the historical facts speak otherwise.

Anyway, the main point of this post is not to try and dispute the so-called Occult meaning of the Eye of the Pyramid. Instead, it is to clearly show that the real riddle of this symbol, if indeed there is one, has a very, very simple answer. First, if any reader has ever taken out a one dollar bill and then looked carefully enough at the roundish, flower-life design situated directly above the Eagle’s head, then they may well have already noticed the clearly recognizable shape of the Star of David. In other words, those little tiny five-pointed pentagrams, 13 in total, are also carefully arranged into a six-pointed hexagram pattern, obviously a Star of David. As one online reference writes:

Among unanswered questions is if there is any historical significance of the six pointed star pattern formed by the glory of stars above the eagle’s head on the obverse side. Beginning in 1841, the individual stars themselves were drawn with only five points, rather than six.

– Why the Pyramid on the American Dollar?, Answerbag

This same Ikon has also been traditionally known as the Star of Creation, or Seal of Solomon, and was commonly believed to be the royal family coat-of-arms for all of King David and his son Solomon’s many numerous descendants. By this logic, one must concede that the Star which best represents Jesus Christ, the Star of Bethlehem so to speak, should also be a six-pointed star as well. One could tentatively view this star as the guardian spirit of the Gentle Rabbi Jesus, encouraging the United States’ on-going loyalty to the Judeo/Christian tradition- a distinctly American concept.

Now consider the immediate implication of this somewhat obvious little Star of David above the Eagle’s head. This one, simple fact truly helps to bolster the quite reasonable claim that the Eye of the Pyramid is nothing more than the top-half, upward triangle of yet another Star of David. This so-called theory becomes even more plausible due to the exact proportions of the eye itself as compared to the pyramid below it as a whole. In other words, if one carefully places an additional pyramid turned upside down on top of the original pyramid, a near perfect Star of David is created as a result. As the picture shown at the very beginning of this essay clearly demonstrates, the precise intersection of the two pyramids is exactly at the bottom edge of both triangular eyes. As one, independent commentator notes:

The triangular pyramid symbol,,,represents half of the so-called Star of David. Superimpose upon it another upside-down pyramid, and you have the full star. When Solomon’s Seal, the six-pointed Star of [David], is overlaid upon the pyramid on the back side of the Great Seal of The United States (seen on the one dollar bill) the all-seeing Eye…fills the top point (triangle) the position of the chief cornerstone.

– Control Towers, by William Thomas Thompson, Homestead.com

Such a concise pattern of measurement and proportion may well be an indication that the artist who originally drew this picture actually intended it this way, in a clever effort for the viewer to discover it’s true meaning. The Star of David above the Eagle serves as further proof that this could well be case, for if there is already one Star of David in the Great Seal, why not two? Quite a few sources on the internet agree with this basic conclusion. but sadly most of them tend to immediately go off on a tangent, in a raving, hysterical manner about the supposed evil, Occult significance of the Star of David. Before too long their Jew-hating ways are revealed, as they then point the finger at Israel and its flag with the Magen David in the center. Needless to say, they are dead wrong about both the Eye of the Pyramid and its derivative, the Star of David. They are also dead wrong about the Jews and their so-called ‘diabolical’ intentions. Here is a brief synopsis about the historical, factual truth about the Eye of Pyramid.

+ All-Seeing Eye: A common 17th-18th century Christian motif for God and His Heavenly view of mankind.
+ Pyramid/Triangle: An age-old Christian symbol connoting the Trinity of God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost
+ U.S. Great Seal: The front side has the Bald Eagle rising towards the 13-point Star of David directly above, while the back side of the Seal has the Eye of the Pyramid precisely proportioned to fit an additional Pyramid turned upside down- thus creating the Star of David.
+ Star of David: The family Coat-of-Arms representing himself, his son Solomon, and all the rest of his descendants, including the Joseph and Mary, the Earthly parents of Jesus Christ, who is the root and branch of David, the bright, morning Star.

Even though this post has decidedly ignored the many on-line fanatics who remain completely opposed to the Eye of the Pyramid, and to the Star of David, Christian believers should use their common sense first and trust in the simple truth. Basically, this means that when it looks like a Star (above the Eagle’s Head), and acts like a Star (the Eye Above and the Eye Below the Pyramid), then one should stop being silly or stubborn, and finally admit that it is indeed the Star of David, and also the family Coat-of-Arms of his great-great-great-great-great-great….grandson Jesus Christ, the Jew from Nazareth.

As to be expected, this solution to the mystery of the All-Seeing Eye may seem like child’s-play and nowhere near as fun and exciting as the endlessly complex, and nonsensical theories of certain Radio Talk-Show hosts and online conspiracy forums. Nonetheless, it is still far closer to the truth than the WWW dot wackos and the fear-mongering self-opportunists will ever admit to. Surveying the modern, psychological landscape, it seems truly sad that many of these paranoid Christian believers, who listen to conspiracy theories constantly, would much rather gossip and speculate about clearly deluded and mentally ill worldviews, then admit their madness and accept the stupid, dumb, boring truth about the back of the one dollar bill- that it is filled with authentic Judeo/Christian symbolism and nothing more.

In reality, those who worship and believe in the God of the Holy Bible have nothing to fear from this decidedly Judeo/Christian symbol. It seems extremely odd to claim that this unique, one and only Seal, which has symbolized a nation of God-fearing citizens from the very start, is secretly a Satanic symbol meant to destroy the Christian faith. To hysterically insist that the U.S. Great Seal is actually filled with the wicked, evil patterns of the Devil doesn’t seem to match up with the reality of this country, either then, now, or in the future. If history is any clue, then the so-called diabolical aspects of this symbol may actually be nothing more than the mystical insignia of a Christian God and another unexplainable aspect of the Judeo/Christian tradition.

May the LORD God bless you in the name of St. Judas Maccbaeus.

The stone the builders rejected has become the Cornerstone. By the LORD has this been done and it is wonderful in our eyes.

– Psalms 118:22-23

You are Peter, and upon this Rock I will build my Church, and the Gates of Hell will not prevail against it.
