Barnards star in the bible - Wormwood
Wormwood the shooting star from the bible.
But what is Wormwood exactly?
"The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water--"
"the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter."
Lets take a look at the sumerian tablets which the Bible is roughly based upon:
If you look closely at the image you will also see a shooting star which I have highlighted in white.
So you see it doesnt stop with just the bible, the symbol is everywhere.
The shooting star is none other than the Barnards' star which is a star in the constellation of Orion and is considered a wandering star because of its weird funky orbit.
The shooting star is used alot instead of the all seeing eye which also represents orion, in lots of masonic symbols, but to lower level freemasons they are nothing but gods, but to higher level freemasons they are stars systems and constellations.
As you see the all seeing eye is replaced with the Barnards star because of this fact that it is in Orion, from this we can tell that it is definitely this particular star.
Thats all that I have at the mo, Im still building up my list of masonic barnard star symbols
or in lower level freemasonary, it represents St.Paul ( I think).Filed under: Biblical
