The point is simple: If you, even in ignorance and with the best of intentions, in your worship of God have the practices and performing of pagan and occult rituals, you will become totally enveloped in paganism if you continue in it's practices. The occult and paganism will take over your heart. It is the spirits, to which the symbols are connected to, that will control and motivate your heart, mind, and actions!
"the term was used by the Rabbis in place of "God" where the anthropomorphic expressions of the Bible were no longer regarded as proper "
This following articles initially claim they do not worship a female god, rather, Shekinah is not separate from the one true God, but a different "aspect" of the one.
However, upon simply reading all of the articles and keeping the whole in context, it becomes very clear, from all of the references to the "She", they are worshiping the same female goddess they did during the prophet Jeremiah's ministry! I recommend you visit the sites themselves so you can see that I am not fabricating nor stretching the truth to lend credence to my statements or beliefs. If you do visit the sites themselves, do not be side tracked for the small comments sprinkled throughout that say the Shekinah is not another God. PAY ATTENTION TO THE WHOLE OF THE ARTICLES, AND ASK YOURSELF "DOES THE WEIGHT OF THEM SUPPORT A SINGLE GOD, OR A GOD AND SEPARATE GODDESS?" (for further confirmation, read about the Shekinah in the Jewish Kabbalah and Zohar. Thank God for Google)
If the Shekinah
Since the worship of the golden calf was brought up in relation to the female (pagan goddess)Shekinah, bear with my flightiness as I make a slight segue, but I feel a necessary one, regarding Apis, the bull god of Egypt:
- Malkut (Primary meaning: Kingdom. Also known as: Atarah (diadem), Kingship, Shekinah (presence), Sabbath, lower Crown, the attribute of justice, Assembly of Israel, Court of God, the oral Torah, Bride, Wife, lower Mother "the Spirit of His holiness," the lesser "hay," ADONAI, the Honorable Name, the non-Lucid Mirror, Hidden Miracles, the etrog [on Succot], earth, moon, queen, Tefillin of the Hand, humility, associated with David)
“Malkuth’s themes are forgiveness, cleansing, health, peace, Earth and balance. Her symbols are yellow-colored items, quartz, cereals and grains and the number 10. Malkuth is the Goddess of the tenth sephira in the Cabalistic Tree of Life. Here She reminds us of the need for positive actions on the physical plane, not simply good thoughts or lofty words, to bring about change. Malkuth also counsels us to always balance our Goddess spirituality with real life and to keep peace with the earth, which She personifies. This is the Jewish new year [Rosh Hashanah] and typically a time for prayer, introspection, and healing the emotional wounds that keep people apart. Take ten minutes out of your morning routine and pray to the Goddess or meditate on recent months."

Back to moon worship:
|THEY MAY OUTWARDLY PROCLAIM THEY ARE NOT WORSHIPING THE MOON, HOWEVER THEIR ACTIONS SAY OTHERWISE|
If you are worshiping God Only, why can a blind person not participate? Why is it necessary to stand under the moon? Is God not omnipresent?This only makes sense in the connotation of pagan god(dess) worship!
The stark truth of the matter is worshiping under the full moon has ALWAYS been associated with the Occult, Witchcraft, sex rituals, paganism and goddess worship. There is absolutely NO WAY AROUND THAT FACT!
Here is one page that tells one aspect of full moon religion
"Every month on the evening of the full Moon, people come together “in perfect love and perfect trust” at Charmed in Marlborough to celebrate and socialize together." "..... reap our harvest upon Witches Thanksgiving (Mabon) and what we would like for the coming new year, The Witches New Year (Samhain),” Lady T explains. Everyone in the circle had the opportunity to tell the group and the Universe what they would like to manifest in the coming month.""The gathering is held on the day of the full Moon, whatever day of the week that might be, at 7:00 pm.".
- even by their own admission, full moon rituals are paganistic!
Why would a HOLY God, who has been condemning the worship of pagan gods and practices for 4000 years, all of a sudden give His approval of worshiping Him the same ways of witchcraft, the occult and paganism? That is not spiritually reasonable, ESPECIALLY in light of His revelation of Himself being THE Holy, righteous God of the Old Testament?
God is not the author of confusion 1Cor 14:33
This single ritual is incriminating enough against the Jewish practices, but when you look at the whole picture of their other practices, symbols and rituals as we find in the Babylonian Talmud, Kabbalah and the Zohar, including the "Star Of David" also known as the "Seal Of Solomon", there is no mistaking their continued practices of pagan practices, worship and false god worship! People, especially as Christians, need to stop our worship of the nation of Israel. We have made them our pagan god!
