Judaism and the Saturn Cult
All Christians should be aware of the fact that Judaism today is mixed heavily with the worship of the planet Saturn. There is a great deal of Biblical and extra-Biblical evidence in the support of this claim. In rejecting Christ, the Jews have gradually degenerated again into paganism, worshiping heavenly bodies and the hosts of heaven, as they have many times over their history, earning for themselves the wrath of God.
Biblical Evidence for Saturn Worship
>You shall take up Sikkuth your king, and Kiyyun your star-god—your images that you made for yourselves,
Kiyyun is an alternative Hebrew name for Saturn, and it is related to Akkadian names that are rendered variously as 'kaiamānu, kayamānu or kajamānu. This same name is carried over into modern day Persian as 'keyvân'.
So it appears that Amos 5:26 is mentioning to some extent the worship of Saturn. A look at the Septuagint will make this even more clear. Brenton's Septuagint says the following for this verse:
>Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Raephan, the images of them which ye made for yourselves
Instead of Kiyyun, it says Raephan. Who is Raephan? Again, unsurprisingly, it is Saturn. The term used here in the Greek, Raephan, is the Coptic word for Saturn, 'rēphan'.
And this verse from the Septuagint is quoted by St. Stephen immediately before he is stoned to death by the Jews in Acts 7:43 -
>You took up the tent of Moloch and the star of your god Rephan, the images that you made to worship and I will send you into exile beyond Babylon.’
Some translations say 'Remphan', but it is clearly the same entity being spoken about. Not only do Acts and the Septuagint translation mention this Saturn god, they mention that this god has a star, while the Masoretic manuscripts say that this is a 'star-god'. We know that planets in the ancient world were seen as 'wandering stars' as well. The most obvious referent for the 'the star of Rephan' is of course the star that the Jews use, the so-called 'Star of David'. The middle of the Star of David features a hexagon, which is the same as the hexagon on top of the planet Saturn. Another name for this symbol is the Seal of Solomon, and it was also used by Muslims at various stages of Islam, and we all know that Islam is founded on the circumambulation of a giant black cube, which is most likely connected with this same idea of Saturn worship (look at a cube from one of its vertices and you will see a hexagon again). This is not even to get into the fact that 666 is the number of Satan, and that Saturn is the 6th planet from the sun, and that the hexagon on top of Saturn has six sides. Also, was not King Solomon not the one who was importing 666 talents of gold into his kingdom annually? (1 Kings 10:14).
There are just too many coincidences at work here with cubes, star-gods, hexagons, the number six, etc. Christ is the one who breaks open the cube.
