A LIGHT TO THE NATIONS
Old Testament Israel Imports The Gentile Darkness – Part XIII
In chapter XII of the present work, we re-addressed the prophetic parallels architecture of God’s redemptive mediation to the Nations, under both the Old and the New Covenants, through the agency of the entity known as Israel. We will address the cycle of how New Testament Israel sought to export the Light to the Nations in the Christian era, in a future chapter.
Twin timelines are revealed in Daniel’s 2nd and 7th chapters, wherein Israel interacted with the Gentile powers on the land, and in the sea. Israel was to export the Light of God to the heathen empires under the Old Covenant on the allegorical land, New Testament Israel (the Christians) was to export the Light of God to the heathen empires under the New Covenant, in the allegorical sea. Further aspects of the two timelines, and their parallel characteristics, are covered in significant detail in the author’s book The Rise And Fall Of The Romerican Empire.
Under the Old Covenant of the LORD, the physical family of Jacob (who was renamed Israel as he found favor with God), functioned as heaven’s emissaries to the rest of the nations (the Gentiles).
As Israel interacted with the Nations which were described in the Scriptures, the Light of God which was to shine through Israel waned, as the chosen disobeyed the LORD, and gradually adopted the ways of the Gentiles.
“Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven…Neither shall thou make marriages [read alliances] with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly” (Jeremiah 10:2, Deuteronomy 7:3, 4).
King David ruled Israel during the glory days of the house of Israel, and true to His promise, God gave the kingdom victory and rest against all opponents.
“I took thee [David] from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel: And I was with thee whithersoever thou wentest, and have cut off all thine enemies out of thy sight, and have made thee a great name, like unto the name of the men that are in the earth” II Samuel 7: 8, 9).
Despite the fact that God had appointed Israel to be His chosen Light to the Nations, and clearly instructed them to remain apart from the Gentiles as the LORD’s mediators before the Gentiles, David’s son Solomon, brazenly manipulated the institution of marriage in order to extend his kingdom. Starting with Pharaoh’s famous daughter Hatshepsut (seen as the Queen of Sheba in Scripture), Solomon did precisely the opposite of what the LORD had instructed.
“And Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord, and went not fully after the Lord, as did David his father. Then did Solomon build an high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon. And likewise did he for all his strange wives, which burnt incense and sacrificed unto their gods. And Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the ammonites” (I Kings 11:6-8, 5).
Solomon used the wealth he had accumulated through tribute from the Gentile nations which continued to be vassal states through politically arranged marriages (666 talents of gold per year – I Kings 10:14), to build the first great temple to the LORD. However, the temple was tainted with the Spirit of the children of disobedience (Colossians 3:6), as Solomon led Israel into mingling the Light of the LORD with the Darkness of the nations dead in their sins.
As the gods of the heathen wives of Solomon encroached on the temple of the LORD, the prophet Ezekiel tells us God was particularly provoked by an insignia placed in the temple, which he described as the image of jealousy.
“So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry” (Ezekiel 8:5),
Archaeology has unearthed a stone pedestal linked to the temple, which is referred to as the Tyrian Signet – meaning the insignia from Tyre. It was an engraved six pointed star which was given to Solomon by Hiram, the king of Tyre. Incidentally, the inter-marriage with the royal house of Tyre and Sidon became a tradition through Solomon, as Jezebel (the infamously wicked royal princess of Sidon who was a priestess of Baal) was married to evil King Ahab of Israel, one of Solomon’s successors.
The “Tyrian Signet,” the six pointed star, was an ancient Occult symbol related to the many star gods associated with Ashtoreth (note the word “star” is found in the name, along with the parallel names Ishtar, Astarte, and even Easter), whom the text tells us was honoured by Solomon.
“And the children of Israel did evil again in the sight of the Lord, and served Baalim, and Ashtaroth, and the gods of Syria, and the gods of Zidon, and the gods of Moab, and gods to the children of Ammon, and the gods of the Philistines, and forsook the Lord, and served not him” (Judges 10:6).
God specifically singled out the star gods as representing the Gentile heathen deities, when He rebuked Israel through the prophet Amos:
“Hear ye this word which I take up against you, even a lamentation, O house of Israel. They hate him that rebuketh in the gate [where the image of jealousy stood], and they abhor him that speaketh uprightly. I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies. Take thou away from me the noise of thy [praise] songs…But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves” (Amos 5:1, 10, 21, 23, 26)
Recognizing the Scripturally verified link between the six pointed star and the Occult, the Jews and the Christians, unwilling to repent of this abomination to this very day, claim the star which is so widely seen is an invention they call the “Star of David.” The truth is, there is not a single verse in Scripture even hinting at this fraud. Indeed, Amos’ stinging rebuke connected the star with the image of Moloch – the very deity the Bible tells us was worshiped by Solomon:
“And Solomon did evil in the sight of the Lord…then did Solomon build an high place …for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon” (I Kings 11:6, 7).
