Israel's Flag

Why is the symbol on the flag of Israel called the Star of David and what does it symbolize?

David is their conquering hero.  The Lord Jesus Christ is called the Son of David.

Matthew 1:1
The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.

To the Jews, David is a type of Messiah.  If you look at David’s life you’ll see what they were expecting the Lord Jesus (Messiah) to do—defeat their enemies, particularly the Romans.  David was a king and a warrior.  They were looking for their Messiah to also be a warrior King.  The Jews took Jesus by force and tried to force him to be King. But he said, no, I’m the king but I have to die first. 

John 6:15
When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone.

The banner of a country is on their flag.  In the Bible a real flag is called a banner.

Exodus 17:15-16
And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah-nissi [The Lord is our Banner]: For he said, Because the LORD hath sworn that the LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.

Psalm 20:5
We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the LORD fulfil all thy petitions.

Isaiah 13:2
Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles.

When you conquer a territory you put your banner (plant your flag) in the land that you conquer, right?  So the star on Israel’s flag represents David to the Hebrew people.  What they’re saying is, “This land is David’s land.”  It’s his kingdom.  That’s the symbolism behind it.

But to New Agers and in witchcraft, that symbol has been ‘hijacked’  to represent their common saying, “as above, so below” (it points up and it points down). This has to do with the fallen angels that comingled with the daughters of men in Genesis 6.  They were above, and then they came down.

Genesis 6:4
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

So their use of the same symbol is extremely occultic. 

Israel’s star also represents the three pyramids at Giza.  I personally believe because those were prophetic times, the builders got the vision for them from fallen angels, as well as the power and capability to build them.  The architecture is so precise (think laser technology) and other-worldly that even today we can’t understand how they could do it.    And what is interesting is that they have no hieroglyphics in them at all.  They had to have had supernatural help by someone who was more than willing to have them worship him (Satan and his fallen angels).

Interestingly the pyramids built by the Egyptians copy that design, but they actually fall apart.  They aren’t built as well and they’re filled with hieroglyphs to their gods.

Likewise, the tower of Babel also represented ‘something above.’  They built it as a tower to reach into Heaven - not literally to reach to the stars, but as a representation of the way they would reach Heaven; and it wasn’t going to be God’s way, it would be their own way. 

Another counterfeit way to heaven is represented by a gateway (think Hollywood’s Stargate) that bridges earth and heaven.  That is an occult counterfeit of Jacob’s Ladder from Genesis.

Genesis 28:12
And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

The Lord talks about this:

John 1:51
And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

The actual location where this will occur is where Jacob had his dream

Genesis 28:10
And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran.

It’s a like a ladder reaching to heaven literally.  So there is evidence in Scripture that there is an area on earth (in Israel) where the angels actually travel between heaven and earth.

Hopefully this helps...Maranatha!
