|Star of David - Is it Pagan? Is it the “star of Rompha” (Acts 7:43)?|
THE SEAL OF DA'UD
two triangles, the doubling of the letter dalet in palaeo-Hebrew).
Those who point
to the seal of Da’ud as the “mark” of the beast” are chasing the wind,
trying to find a place to stand on.
“mark” of the beast is in direct opposition to the “mark” of Yahuah, His
“six pointed star” is simply the seal of Da’ud, employing two “daleths”,
the beginning and ending letter in the king’s name.The
seal of Da’ud is not a “religious” symbol of any kind, according to
historical use and the orthodox “rabbi” Kolatch in his Jewish Book Of Why.
In ancient Hebrew, the king of Israel's name was spelled: DALET-UAU-DALET (three letters). Because the Babylonian script (called "modern Hebrew", or Aramaic) is what is typically thought of when people think of Hebrew letters, the original, ancient letters shapes are not widely known today.
The original shape of the Hebrew letter "dalet" is a simple triangle, and signified a "door" (as to a shepherd's tent). The name of a king was an important item, and was commonly used as a seal. The seal of the presidency of the United States serves to do the same today for the office of the president. A seal is the same as a "mark"; a sign indicating the owner's authority or sovereignty.
The seal of the United Nations (world government, New World Jesuit Order) is the Earth encircled with the olive leaf laurel/wreath of Caesar, the laurel wreath being the ancient Roman symbol of world rule. Emblems, animals or names may be seen in seals.
Yahuah is the only true KING of Israel, however Israel requested a human king, to be like the nations.
The 2nd human king of Israel was a fellow with incredible zeal for the Name of Yahuah, and dealt severely with the Dagon-worshipping Philistine (Palestinian) Nephili Pagan dog, named GOLYATH, slinging a stone into his forehead for blaspheming the personal Name of the Most High -- then he removed his head, and allowed the birds of the air to eat his flesh. He did this with no armor; his only weapons were a stone, a sling -- and of course the Name of Yahuah.
This fellow is known today as "DAVID", the son of Yishai ("Jesse" is the form it took in English).
Yesha Yahu (Isaiah) chapter 11 lets us know that the day will come when the wolf will dwell peacefully with the lamb, and dangerous animals will become eaters of straw, and a child will lead them. The Earth will be filled with the knowledge of Yahuah as the waters cover the sea. 11:10 tells us "In that day" (a future time), there shall be a sign of the ROOT (offshoot) of Yishai, standing as a BANNER to the people -- this can refer to the Mashiach and His Testimony also, but could literally be a couple of other things. Then, at 11:12 we see that a BANNER is raised by the Mashiach for the nations, to GATHER the outcasts (diaspora, scattered, lost) of Israel (all 12 tribes sewn into the nations, Amos 9:9). What is on this banner (like a flag)? Possibly the NAME of Yahuah, or the SEAL OF DA'UD, dude, used on the flag of Israel today!
("Da'ud" means "beloved" in Hebrew). It could have been pronounced "DUDE", since if we attempt to transliterate our word "dude" into Hebrew, it has to be spelled DALET-UAU-DALET to make it happen. "Yahuah NISSI" means Yahuah is my banner.
Aside from being an identifying mark or sign of Israel, the seal of Da'ud basically represents the king's name (upon which the throne of Da'ud is to be reestablished). It was (and may be again) used as a signet, to prove authenticity of authority, or for security-sealing documents (bulla). It is synonymous to a "logo" or trademark as we understand it today. This symbol has also been called the "seal of Solomon", and may have been used to mark his property. Several decades ago, a discovery was made about 20 miles from Lima, Peru, in what appeared to be an ancient abandoned gold mine. Deep in the mine, 3 enormous cut stones weighing many tons each contained the seal of Da'ud at one end, cut into them with great skill. Some have postulated that this was one of the mines from which was extracted what is called the "gold of Ophir" in Scripture. Yahuah uses fine gold as a metaphor for His most special treasure, His bride - Israel.
The Mashiach (Yahusha ben Yahuah) will be seated upon the throne of Da'ud as a King and Kohen, and the house of Da'ud will be reestablished (Luke 1:32, Acts 15:16). This "logo" will be used to draw Israel from among the nations like a magnet attracts iron. Da'ud is not Yahusha as some have come to believe, but sits on the throne of Da'ud.
It's my personal opinion that the star of Da'ud (as it is referred to in modern times) was adopted by Pagans, just as the serpent Nehushtan on the pole was, but the original articles remain undefiled. As with many things, it's the use that they are put to that really matters. Kabbala, Masonry, and other symbol-oriented sorceries borrow from all kinds of sources, and interpret the signs and omens of them in order to beguile the fertile minds of the unwary. So, while people may dredge-up their "proof" of the symbol being used by Satanists or other Pagans in the past, It really doesn't mar the original item in the least. The same can be said of wholesome Hebrew words which were "adopted" by Pagans, like "el". Sure, the Pagans named one of their deities "EL", but the word existed as a pronoun before that. If people call on the "name" EL, that's bad; however if they simply use the word "el" as it is used in Yahuah's Word, it's fine. If Pagans suddenly decided to adopt the 7th day as the day of rest to honor their false deity, that doesn't make our Sabbath profaned in the least. The original item remains pure -- Pagans cannot bend what Yahuah has made straight. Hostility against Israel can take on many forms, so we should expect that one of the two most important recognizable symbols of Israel would be under attack. Scholars both within and without Israel admit that the seal of Da'ud is certainly NOT any sort of "religious" symbol in any way; it is merely the symbol that refers to the personal name of the king, and his secular throne.
The other recognizable symbol for Israel IS a religious one; the MENORAH. It represents the Torah, the light of which all Israel and the nations should walk in. The oil that burns in it represents the Name of Yahuah, and the wise will call upon it and depart from all unrighteousness. Yahuah guides the wise in paths of righteousness for His Name's sake.
ISRAEL is a nation of priests (kohanim), and we are to teach the nations the Torah of Yahuah. That is the reason we have preserved the Torah, and the reason we have been preserved until this day.

For everyone who gets upset over the flag on the left, I'm submitting the one on the right above for you to consider as an optional choice.
