The Six Pointed Star
By, Dr. O.J. Graham

The Six-Pointed Star is going into its fourth edition. There have been thousands of letters over the years and comments are available upon request. The questions which are asked of this author are:

What made you even remotely curious that the six-pointed star might not be "Jewish"? After all, it is called the "Star of David" and has it not become the international insignia of Jewishness and the State of Israel?

The controversy and the challenge are answered in the book. The quest began at York University, Ontario, Canada, when an Orthodox Jewish friend of mine was investigating Messianic Judaism. Our intellectual conversation covered many topics which included the so-called Star of David, which he said he did not use as the symbol G-d really gave the children of Israel was the seven-branched Menorah. Being a journalist, he challenged me to explore the six-pointed star. And I accepted the challenge, with the plan that I would prove its Jewishness. After all, I wore one and felt I had to defend it, even to him.

That was the summer of 1979 and the research took me four years to complete. I found a few Jews who knew it was not Jewish, and these are mentioned in the book. Others did not think about it, and most did not care whether it was orignially occult or not - they did not think it mattered. I checked Jewish sources and all their encyclopaedias attested that it was not originally Jewish and was not used as the symbol for any of the twelve tribes of Israel. Jewish sources said it wasn't originally Jewish. So, what was it? That took four years of research. From archive to archive, library to library...history book to history book.

The first mention of the star was in Amos 5:26 regarding the trek from Egypt to Canaan. Then in 922 B.C., when Solomon married the daughter of Pharoah and went into magic and witchcraft and built an altar to Ashtoroth and Moloch. The book traces the six pointed star from Egypt to Solomon, to Arab Magic and Witchcraft, to Druid use(references are documented). The book traces the star through Freemasonry usage to Mayer Amschel Bauer, who, in the 17th century, changed his name to depict the red six-pointed star (or shield) which he had hung on his door in Germany, and thus began the family of "Red Shield" or Rothschild. The research carried on through this family, to their court of arms, to Cabala, to Astrology, to Hitler and his putting a yellow six-pointed star on all Jews during the holocaust, to the Zionist symbol, and finally to the flag of the State of Israel and beyond.

Because this symbol is comprised of a six within a six within a six (6 points, 6 triangles, 6 sides of the hexagon in the middle) the research also included a look at the 666 prophecies in the Book of Daniel etc., regarding the "wilful King" (anti-Christ) and the "mark of the beast". The Scriptural significance of the number seven and a Biblical description of the real Messiah and the seven-branched Candlestick (Menorah) which God gave to the children of Israel as an everlasting covenant (which is also mentioned in the New Testament) is covered. All the sources are written at the bottom of each page making it easy for readers to see and check for themselves.

I started out to defend this symbol, but ended up shocked and quite devasted with the evidence gleaned from the academic research. It is the only book on the origin and history of the six-pointed star or hexagram. Have a good read, check the references yourself, and I would be happy to hear your comments. All the best to you

The 6-pointed star or Hexagram is a Masonic Symbol. It's non-masonic use was propagated during the 19th century by Freemasons into new congregation construction in Industrial Britain and then it's farflung empire. The Menorah, not the Hexagram is the true symbol of God's covenent with the Jewish people. There is absolutely no proof that the Hexagram was ever used by, or associated with, King David or the Temple he planned and prepared for which was erected after his death by his son, King Solomon.

Brief History of the Hexagram or Six Pointed Star

Acts 7:37-43 This is that Moses...to whom our fathers wold not obey, but thrust him from them, and IN THEIR HEARTS TURNED BACK AGAIN INTO EGYPT... And they made a calf in those days, and offered sacrifices unto the idol, and rejoiced in the works of their own hands. Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the HOST OF HEAVEN: as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to Me slain beasts and sacrifices by the space of FORTY YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS? 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.

Amos 5:26-27 But ye have born the tabernacle of your Moloch, and Chiun (Remphan) your images, the STAR OF YOUR GOD, which ye made to yourselves. Therefore, will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the Lord...

"The Universal Jewish Encyclopedia declares that the SIX-POINTED STAR...according to the Rosicrucians...was known to the ancient Egyptians." (Graham, p. 13)

"SIX TRIANGLES...is the Egyptian hieroglyphic for the ...Land of the Spirits." (Churchward, p. 177)

"Ancient Egyptian Seal of Solomon" (Churchward, p. 188)

"In the Astro-Mythology of the Egyptians, we find belief in the first man-god (Horus I) ...and his death and resurrection as Amsu"

"This (6-pointed star) was the first sign or hieroglyphic of Amsu"

"Amsu - the risen Horus - was the first man-god risen in spiritual form." (Churchward, p. 3, 65, 38)

The six pointed star is associated with Saturn worship. Therefore, the beast is Saturn, and his mark is the 6-pointed star.
Acts 7:43 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.

Amos 5:26-27 But ye have born the tabernacle of your Moloch, and Chiun (Remphan) your images, the STAR OF YOUR GOD, which ye made to yourselves. Therefore, will I cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the Lord...

Ref. Strong's Concordance

4481 Rhemphan {hrem-fan'} by incorrect transliteration for a word of Hebrew origin 3594; n pr m AV - Remphan 1; 1 Remphan = "the shrunken (as lifeless)" 1) the name of an idol worshipped secretly by the Israelites in the wilderness

"On the first face is engraved...a pentagram or a star with five points. On the other side is engraved a bull's head enclosed in a SIX-POINTED STAR, and surrounded by letters composing the name REMPHA, THE PLANETARY GENIUS OF SATURN, according to the alphabet of the Magi." (Christian, p. 304-5)
Talismans of the Magi
"Theophrastus Paracelsus revived, in the XVIth century, the ancient doctrine of Talismans, which he claimed to be able to use successfully in the treatment of illnesses and accidents. This medical doctrine, derived from the Cabala, or secret tradition of the Jewish rabbis, was said to be borrowed from the ancient occult sciences of Chaldea and Egypt. The talisman (tsilmenaia) signifies an image, a figure, and was engraved in the form of an emblem or symbol on metals consecrated to the genii of the seven planets. This magical task had to be carried out at a fixed time of a certain day, with the firm intention of attracting to the talisman the beneficent influence of the genius which was invoked, whether for health or any other protective measures...

The Talisman of Saturn
Talisman of Jupiter
The Talisman of Mars
Talisman of the Sun
Talisman of Venus
The Talisman of Mercury
The Talisman of the Moon

"These are the principal Talismans whose traditions have been preserved for us by the most ancient monuments of the highest magical art and by the most reliable archaeologists in this type of research. These talismans are recommended under the name of Teraphim by the Hebrew Qabalists of the Middle Ages, who replace the names of the planetary Genii of Egypt by those of: Oriphiel (Rempha), Zachariel (Pi-Zeus), Samael (Ertosill), Michael (Pi-Rh3), Anabel (Suroth), Raphael (Pi-Hermes) and Gabriel (Pi-Ioh). These Cabalists add another seven talismans to which they attribute the power of conjuring the influence of seven demons who, according to their doctrine, share with the seven planetary angels the government of the divine creation. Against the angel of Saturn they set the demon Nabam; against the angel of Jupiter the demon Acham; against the angel of Mars the demon Nambroth; against the angel of Venus the demon Lilith or Naemah; against the angel of Mercury the demon Astaroth or Tharthac; and against the angel of the Moon the demon Sathan, See Judges xvii and xviii in the Bible. The Teraphim appear to correspond to the serpent images or seraphim. which in turn are said to derive from the Kabeiri Assyrian divinities worshipped at Hebron (Beni Anak). The Daimons or male spirits of the planets are now given by esoteric students of the Qabala as: Adonai=sun, Evoe=Moon. Saba=Mars, Astaphoi=Mercury, Eloi=Jupiter. Ouraioa=Venus and Ilde-baoth, or according to the Orphites Jahweh= Saturn."

"Now, the name SATURN in Chaldee is pronounced Satur; but, as every Chaldee scholar knows, consists only of four letters, thus - Stur [ed. Star?]. This name contains exactly the Apocalyptic number." (Hislop, p. 269)

"Sri Aurobindo, a Hindu guru well-known in the New Age affirms that SATURN IS REPRESENTED BY THE NUMBER 6… because the planet Saturn is 6th of the nine planets in distance from the sun." (Marrs: Mystery Mark, p. 68)

The beast out of the sea with 7 heads (Saturn) is actually the earthly incarnation of Satan, the 7-headed serpent.

Rev. 12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a GREAT RED DRAGON, HAVING SEVEN HEADS and ten horns…

Rev. 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and SATAN…

Rev. 13:1 And I…saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having SEVEN HEADS and ten horns.

"The 7-headed dragon and BEAST OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION… have their origin in the 7-headed serpent which is MENTIONED IN THE PYRAMID TEXT." (Churchward, p. 210)

"It is 'SATAN who is the god of our planet and the only god'… In the order of divine evolution SATURN (SATAN), astronomically, 'is the seventh and last in the order of macrocosmic emanation'" (Blavatsky, p. 234, quoting Dr. A. Kingsford: Perfect Way, Appendix: The Secret of Satan)

"The SATURNIAN SPIRIT, 'SATAN' …ensouls the Third great major or Primary Ray of Deity." (Marrs: Mystery Mark, p. 69, quoting Vera Stanley Alder)

King of Tyre

Ezek. 28:2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyre, Thus saith the Lord God; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou are a man…

Ezek. 28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus… Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; … Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth…

"In the Pyramid texts the king was regarded as the SON AND EMBODIMENT OF THE SOLAR DEITY. In this capacity he was the EARTHLY REPRESENTATIVE and high priest of his heavenly Father Re - A GOD IN HUMAN FORM." (James, p. 2)

c. King of Babylon
"In Babylonia the…ruler…was regarded as actually the MANIFESTATION OF THE DEITY." (James, p. 7)
Present Use of the Six-Pointed Star


Neither repented they of their...sorceries (Rev. 9:21)

"The HEXAGRAM is used in magic, witchcraft, occultism." (Burns: Hidden Secrets of the Eastern Star, pp. 170-71, quoting Stewart Farrar)

"Halloween...emanates from the 14th century... when the Druids would knock on the doors of the castles demanding the young maiden or princess for their sacrifices. If they were not given the maiden, they would paint a HEXAGRAM on the door to tell...that all should die in that household." (Graham, p. 98)
Secret Societies


"If the two lateral lines of the STAR OF DAVID are removed, leaving the upward and downward pointing arrows...the result is the Freemason's square and compass." (Knight, p. 240)

"The BLAZING STAR IS PROPERLY SIX-POINTED... the sign of the deity, and to make that more evident, in the middle of it is usually inscribed the letter 'G', for God... In Co-Masonic lodges, the usual form... is a serpent curled round with its tail in its mouth... This was the original form, but the head of the serpent was altered so as to form the letter G." (Leadbeater, p. 79)

"I have seen a painting (in which) the BLAZING STAR in the center existed, but it had 8 points instead of 6 or 5. It was called 'the star of the dawn' or 'MORNING STAR'; and represented HORUS of the resurrection, who was pictured as bearing it upon his HEAD and as having given it to his followers." (Leadbeater, p. 7)

[Note: 6-pointed star is located on the RIGHT HAND]

Emblem of the Theosophical Society

"The Interlaced Triangles, one (lighter) pointing upwards and the other (darker) pointing downwards, symbolise the descent of spirit into matter and its emergence from the confining limits of form. At the same time they suggest the constant conflict between light and dark forces in nature and man. When, as in the emblem, the double triangle is depicted within the circle of the Serpent, the whole of manifested nature is represented, the universe bounded by the limitations of time and space. The symbol of the interlaced triangles is known in the Hebrew religion as the Seal of Solomon or the Star of David."

New Age
"A growing number of New Agers have already undergrone an initiation ceremony and received the mark. They almost universally report that although they approach the ceremony with dread and foreboding, after it is over... 'I discovered that the lines on the palm of my right hand had been altered, and a portion of them now formed a six-pointed star about an inch in circumference. It terrified me when I first spotted it... But as time went on, I learned to accept the changes within my body, and I really felt quite special." (Marrs: Mystery Mark, p. 39)
