Logos & Coats of Arms of NCCG
5. The Royal Melchizedek Priesthood Logo
The Royal Melchizedek Priesthood Logo first made its appearance in 1986 and consisted of two traditional elements combined: (a) an interlacing Star of David representing Israel; and (b) a white lamb with red cruciform halo reclining on the Book of Dispensations, with the seventh seal marked red to represent the last dispensation before the Millennium. (For further information, see Royal Melchizedek Priesthood Banner).
Three designs have been in use, the last one being the second of the three, in which the second element (the lamb and the book) was enlarged. The third design, made up of a different lamb-and-book arrangment, was never popular and appeared briefly as an alternate form in about 1990. This is shown to the left.
Before revelation was received changing the Church logo to the sceptered and crowned lion, this logo was that of the whole Church from 1986-92. It effectively disappeared during the early part of the NCCF (New Covenant Christian Fellowship) period (1992-96) though began re-appearing as the Royal Melchizedek Priesthood logo in about 1994-5. In 1995 it was combined with the NCCF Banner (now the banner of NCCG Missions) to create the Local Colonial Banner and the Metropolitan Colonial Banner where it was a common site.
It was utilised in many former NCCG banners, including the Royal Melchizedek Priesthood Banner, the Banner of the Presiding Church Patriarchate, the Banner of the Apostolate, the banners of individidual Patriarch-Apostles, and the banners of the 144 Matriarch-Apostles.
Apart from the Church Lion, the Logo of the Royal Melchizedek Priesthood was one of the most widely used symbols of the New Covenant Church of God, as well as being amongst the oldest, before it was discontinued in 2009.
The use of the Star of David was questioned a number of times during NCCG's history because of its occultic and Illuminist associations. For an early discussion on this, see A Question of Symbols and Magick. In 2009 it was decided, in view of the almost ubiquitous use of the hexagram in occult rituals for summonising demons for cursing people, its use by both Talmudic Judaism and a counterfeit Israelite antichrist state in the Middle East as a national emblem (inspired by the Illuminist Rothschild family), is used by subversive occult organisations like the Free Masons and by others with an anti-Christian agenda, was used anciently in Canaan to represent the pagan deities of Moloch and Remphan, and was adopted by Solomon when he descended into paganism, to cease using the hexagram in NCCG symbology as logos, banners and representations of the Messiah even though our own usage has a totally different meaning to that of the occultists (much as the swastika is used entirely differenly by fascist organisations in the West to philosophical systems in the Orient). Accordingly, for these reasons, as well as to symbolically make a complete break with our early beginnings, all NCCG banners including the hexagram were destroyed on 20 June 2009. For more information on the history of the hexagram, see The Six-Pointed Star: The Mark of the Beast.
