Star of Messiah

You see, Yacov,” the old rabbi gently instructed, “God has given His people the Star as a sign. Many centuries before, David was given this as a symbol of his kingdom.” Carefully he sketched a triangle pointing up, then superimposed another pointing down on top of it. The lines were intertwined until the six-pointed Star of David was formed. “Here is an arrow that points down from heaven to earth, nu?”

Yacov nodded, and Rachel came to stand at Grandfather’s shoulder. “Is that God?” Rachel asked, staring hard at the Star.

“A good Yeshiva student you make Rachel! You should have been a man! Pay attention to your sister, Yacov. She is bright!” He smiled and slapped his knee. “So,” Grandfather continued, “from heaven God reaches down to man through Torah and the law of Moses.” He tapped the pencil lead lightly to the image. “And what do you suppose this triangle represents, eh? What is the arrow that points up, Yacov?”

“Us, maybe? Reaching up to God?”

“Good! Yes! Very good indeed, Yacov. And you see the two are intertwined…interlocking. And each side of the triangle represents the three sides of God and three sides of man. We have a mind, a body, and a soul, yes?”

“So when you put them both together,” Yacov tested cautiously, “both halves of the star are King David?”

“No,” Grandfather shook his head. “But the One who shall come after. The promised Messiah of Israel who shall be completeness and perfection, when man and God are at last perfectly united. Our Messiah shall be the Star of David. God reaching down to man and man reaching up to God.

Shalom – peace…means completeness in Hebrew

Emanuel – God with us…unity

Yeshua – Salvation…saved from separation from what we are created for; Elohim.

Everything means something…and it all leads to Him…owner, creator, giver of Stars!

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
