The Key of David

By Warder Cresson (Michael Boaz Israel ben Abraham).

Appendix J

"Mogan David," or the Shield of David.

"The Shield of David:"

HOLO-CAUST to the UNITY of God,

and to


The Flaming Heart, or Soul, burning with Divine Love, through all Eternity, to the Only One Adorable God; consequently without any Rival or Co-Equal.

Is a most beautiful representation, showing how far God is exalted above even the Triangle, which is admitted to be a principle in all nature. Christians, I know, will call it a "Trinity;" and even allowing it to be a Trinity of Fire, Light and Heat, or Spirit,

Are we Persians, that we should be Fire Worshippers?

Are we Hicksite Quakers, believing that Light is the Leading Principle, that we should be Worshippers of the Light?

Or shall we be Jews and worship God, "who is the Great Spirit?" The Omnipotent, Omnipresent, and Omniscient, ever Adorable, One Only Unchangeable God; and as in this Shield of David is represented the Double Triangle of Fire, Light, and Spirit, united and blended with Body, Soul, and Spirit; yet we see God is EXALTED ABOVE ALL THESE, "BLESSED FOREVER and EVER."

The Human heart in the center represents the Burning Ardent Soul, alive in the Celestial Flames of Divine Love, "Loving God with all the Heart, with all the Soul, and with all its Might," and as such, I wish the following cut engraved upon my Coffin, and upon my Tombstone, if I should die before the Great King of Israel and Messiah comes. And should God take away from me these filthy Garments of Flesh and Blood, I feel a Holy Divine Flame, that will burn to all eternity to him the Only One True God. Amen.
