Is it the "star of Rompha” seen at Acts 7:43?
Stephen described a "star" associated with Sun worship.
He said they bowed to it along with the host of heaven.
What was it?
“And you took up the tent of Molek, and the star of your mighty one Kiyyun, images which you made to bow before them. Therefore I shall remove you beyond Babel.” - Acts 7:43
Using casuistry and equivocation, teachers will deceive by claiming
the seal of Daud is a "hexagram," and therefore evil.
Where are hexagrams found? Snowflakes, flowers, crystals, and many
other creations of Yahusha are hexagrams.
SEAL OF DAUD (aka "David")
The star of Rompha - also known as Kiyyun or Topheth - refers to Molok, not the seal of Daud (David). No one has ever bowed to the seal of Daud, but there is another STAR people continued to bow to. The star most common to Sun worship is the crux. Jerome chose the Latin word crux instead of stauro (Latin for stauros, the Greek word) when he worked on the Latin Vulgate. Stauros means beam, pole, or upright plank.
According to Ezekiel (Yekezqal) chapter 8, the leadership of Yisharal was corrupted by the influences of the Zodiac, or living animal signs in the heavens. They had decorated Yahuah's Mishkan (Dwelling Place) with symbols from Babel's mazzaroth, particularly the star patterns known as constellations.

Those who point
to the seal of Daud (aka David, pronounced "da-OOD") as the mark of the beast are chasing the wind,
trying to find a place to stand on. The true
mark of the beast is in direct opposition to the mark of Yahuah, His
In ancient Hebrew, the king of Israel's name was spelled: DALETH-UAU-DALETH (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. What is called "modern Hebrew" is a foreign alphabet, but used by the returned Yahudim after the Babylonian Captivity.
The original shape of the Hebrew letter "daleth" is a simple triangle, a pictograph representing 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, and the authentication of of one's words (see shibboleth).
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 placed the name of Daud in the snowflake.
Yahuah is the only true KING of Israel, however Israel (better "Yisharal") 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 (Filistim, Palestinian) Nephili Pagan "am I a dog?" 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 the Name of Yahuah.
This man is known today as DAVID the son of Yishai (Jesse is the form it took in English).
Yasha 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, Amus 9:9). What is on this banner (like a flag)? Possibly the NAME of Yahuah, or the SEAL OF Daud, dude, used on the flag of Israel today!
Daud 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 DALETH-UAU-DALETH to make it happen.
Yahuah NISSI means Yahuah is my banner.
Aside from being an identifying mark or sign of Israel, the seal of Daud basically represents the king's name (upon which the throne of Daud 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 Shalomoh, 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 Daud 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 Mashiak (Yahusha ben Yahuah, YAHUSHA) will be seated upon the throne of Daud as a King and Kohen, and the house of Daud will be reestablished (Luke 1:32, Acts 15:16). This seal will be used to draw Israel from among the nations like a magnet attracts iron.
Daud is not Yahusha as some have come to believe, but Yahusha will sit on the throne of Daud, a man after Yahuah's Own heart.
The star of Daud (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 matters. Kabbalah, 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. While people may dredge-up their proof of the symbol being used by Satanists or other Pagans in the past, It doesn't mar the original item in the least. The same can be said of wholesome Hebrew words which were adopted by Pagans, like "al, or el." Other words are confused by teachers because they seem to sound alike. Amon-Ra has no association with the Hebrew word AMAN (truly), especially because one is a proper noun, and the other is not.
Pagans named one of their deities AL, or EL, but the word existed as a pronoun before that. If people call on EL as a NAME, that's certainly wrong; however if they simply use the word al or alah as a pronoun as seen in Yahuah's Word, it's fine. The book of Danial refers to the most high ALAH quite often. This word is spelled ALEF-LAMED-HAY.
If Pagans suddenly decided to adopt the 7th day as the day of rest to honor their false deity, that doesn't make our Shabath 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 Yisharal (aka Israel) would be under attack. Scholars both within and without Israel admit that the seal of Daud 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.
BOWING TO SYMBOLS?
The symbol confused by Christians to be the “star of Remphan” or “Rompha” (Molok) is a misinterpretation of Acts 7:43; it is only a seal.
Seals were used to authenticate a document, and at Revelation 5 we read about a scroll written on both sides which was sealed inside as well as on the outside, having a total of seven seals.
The Name of the second king of Yisharal (Israel) was Daud (aka David), and his name was spelled with three letters: DALETH-UAU-DALETH.
No one has ever bowed down to the seal / symbol of Daud, yet at Acts 7:43 that is what Stephen described being done.
Act 7:43:“And you took up the tent of Molek, and the star of your mighty one Kiyyun, images which you made to bow before them. Therefore I shall remove you beyond Babel.”
The symbol is not “religious,” it is a seal of the name, Daud. Shalomoh (Solomon) spread the name of his father by using it as well, but not in any sort of “worshipful” way.
People tend to see evil wherever they look. The geometric shape of the “hexagram” is considered to possess powers of protection by superstitious people, and they find a hexagram inside the shape of the two DALETHS (inverted in the seal of Daud). The pentacle is another geometric shape people with silly superstitious ideas use, originally a design favored by Pythagoras, a mathematician who discovered the “golden section” (a repeating ratio of 1.61 found in all living things). The intersecting lines of the pentacle reflect this repeating ratio.
Yahuah designed many of His living creatures using pentacle and pentagram shapes, from flowers and plants to starfish. Even snowflakes and other crystalline structures reflect this marvelous design. Turning aside to myths, people will hold tightly to them rather than receive Truth.
Using myths from their own imaginations, occultists simply usurped and twisted the things Yahuah created.
2Ti 4:2-4: Proclaim the Word! Be urgent in season, out of season. Correct, warn, appeal, with all patience and teaching. For there shall be a time when they shall not bear sound teaching, but according to their own desires, they shall heap up for themselves teachers tickling the ear, and they shall indeed turn their ears away from the Truth, and be turned aside to myths.” BYNV
When people fear shapes and objects, it’s a sign they have fallen for false teachings. If anyone bows to an object, it defiles them, and the object must be destroyed.
Stephen was telling the Sanhedrin about figures (signs of constellations) they had embraced, and even placed their images inside Yahuah’s Temple (verifiable by reading Ez. chapter 8).
I hope this information is useful to overcome the false teachings and stronghold of fear concerning this and other things mishandled by teachers.
We have to either continue in the true faith, or continue in the traditions. Sincerely believing a lie does not make it true, and we know the majority (wide road) are on a path to destruction.
We are the Natsarim, a growing army of Yahusha-filled teachers.

For everyone who gets upset over the banner design on the left, the one on the right is an option.
Is the 'star of David" the “star of Rompha” (Acts 7:43)?
See the following article:

And the children of Yisharal shall guard the Shabath, to observe the Shabath throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant. Between Me and the children of Yisharal it is a sign forever. For in six days Yahuah made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.
BYNV Ex / Shemoth 31:16, 17
Sun-day, the day of the Sun, is not the Shabath; that change was made by emperor Constantine, a worshipper of the sun deity, Apollo, the Roman term for the Persian deity Mithras.
THE SOURCE OF ALL SORCERY: BABEL
What’s your sign? A constellation, or Shabath?
It is the apostasy Stephen spoke of to the Sanhedrin, Acts 7:42, spoken about at Yekezqel / Ezekiel 8, as well as in the Covenant 10 Commandments, among many other texts. Some Natsarim teachers are falling for this deceptive, old pattern of wickedness from Babel. There is perhaps no single pattern or way that could enrage our Creator more than to deceive His elect with these signs and wonders!
The new books Nimrod's Secret Identity and Reapers explain how the beast will be annihilated at the coming of Yahusha.
There is no Scripture from which to teach the message of deliverance using the framework of the Queen of Heaven (Babel). There is no white magic or form of Astrology that applies to the message of deliverance. People are being led into false reasoning when taught about a “virgin” in a constellation. The quote in Ayub (Job) is asking him if he can bring forth the sun, moon, and stars: Yahuah is not asking Ayub if he can bring forth Orion as most translations render the term. The Hebrew word "KESIL" means "burly, colossal, immense", so "immensity" might even refer to the whole panarama of the heavens themselves. Translators have interpreted and passed-down their opinions in our English for centuries. The BYNV restores a fresh look at texts like this, without filtering ideas through old ideas.
Orion is not in Scripture, neither is the Pleiades; that word means a cluster, herd, or group.
If there is Scripture that we all need to have that explains how Babel's constellations show us the redemption plan for the world, bring them. If not, I'll have to stick with the redemptive shadows of the festivals that clearly give us the plan, without any mysterious blending of the wine of Babel, which drove the nations mad, and drunk from her golden cup of abominations (the Zodiac, zoo, heavenly beasts).
