Battler says “The Third Pentacle of Mars. Psalms 77:13 from the Old Testament is written on it. The effect: ‘Discord. Fan up internal divisions and make the enemy destroy themselves.’”
Psalm 77:13 KJB “Thy way, O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?”
This is just a regular Bible verse. I don’t see anything here explicitly talking about Discord, or fanning up internal divisions. In fact, the LORD hates the act of sowing discord among brothers. Thus, though the Bible is good, the use of this verse to try and sow discord is an abomination to the Lord!
· Proverbs 6:16-19 ESV There are six things that the LORD hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.
Strong's 4090: A contest, quarrel
The second instance of this Hebrew word referring to Discord is used here:
Proverbs 10:12 NIV Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.
This shows us that the love of Jesus Christ covers all our sins, so believe in Him! Why would a person want to use false real life magical spells which is the sin of sorcery/witchcraft like the real Bible verse Psalm 77:13 to create conflict amongst their enemy? Even though our enemies are sinners, hey guess what, we’re sinners too! We must love all people, the sinners, and hate all sins! Let us, rather than stirring up conflict, show them the love of Jesus Christ, which covers all their wrongs my friends!
So I decided to research this “Third Pentacle of Mars” first in order to rebuke it of it’s unbiblical origins.
This website describes it the same way and elaborates that “The divine Names of Eloah, “Our God,” and Shaddai, “the Almighty,” are written on this seal, and in the center is a great letter Vau, the signature of the Kabbalistic Microprosopus. Around is the versicle from Psalm 77– "Who is so great a God as our Elohim?"”
Searching that phrase “Kabbalistic Microprosopus” leads to this Wikipedia link:
start quote “Ze`ir Anpin (Aramaic: זְעֵיר אַנפִּין meaning "Lesser Countenance/Small Face", called Microprosopus in the Kabbala Denudata) is a revealed aspect of God in Kabbalah” end quote. Which then leads to this Wikipedia link:
start quote “Kabbalah (Hebrew: קַבָּלָה Qabbālā, literally "reception, tradition"[a]) is an esoteric method, discipline and school of thought in Jewish mysticism” end quote which then leads to this Wikipedia link:
So this tells us that the concept to be rebuked is Jewish mysticism. We can further see this connection here:
start quote “The third type of mysticism claims an esoteric knowledge (hereafter called esoterism)… This form of mysticism, akin to gnosis (the secret knowledge claimed by gnosticism, a Hellenistic religious and philosophical movement) but purged—or almost purged—of the dualism that characterizes the latter, is what is commonly known as Kabbala (Hebrew: “Tradition”) end quote”
You can see here that it follows the same heresy of Gnosticism, which claims that a person must have secret knowledge to be saved. The problem is that the truth to believe in Jesus Christ is plainly written and obvious, not hidden.
2 Corinthians 4:2 NIV
Rather, we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to everyone’s conscience in the sight of God.
Shows us that it’s not be secret knowledge that we are saved, but rather by knowledge of the truth that is plainly written, to have faith alone in Christ to be saved.
And this Judaism Kabbala comes from the Hebrew word meaning: “Tradition”… tradition that’s an interesting word. It’s like the same word mentioned in the Bible:
Colossians 2:8 ESV
See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.
So, we can see here that Judaism mysticism is a human tradition. This makes sense because if we watch this fictional anime, we see that Psalms 77:13 is, in a sense “emptied out” because it’s used for something that is opposite of it’s meaning. It’s a verse that’s supposed to glorify the God of peace! But now it’s been taken by the false religion of Jewish mysticism to have the opposite meaning of sowing discord amongst people.
2 Thessalonians 2:15 ESV
So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the traditions that you were taught by us, either by our spoken word or by our letter.
Because what is the tradition of God? To believe in Jesus Christ with faith alone to be saved. The problem with Judaism and thus by extension Jewish mysticism is that it rejects Jesus Christ as the Messiah, God the Savior of the world. Only Jesus Christ paid the penalty for our sins, for only He is good.
