The Arch of Baal Conspiracy
This week, all across the Internet, we are seeing many people in a hysteria over the supposed Arch of Baal going up in NYC. I am going to offer you my opinion and perspective on the matter. Do what you will with it but know this – I do not make money from you clicking on this site. I am not selling a book, DVDs or teachings on the topic. There is no financial motive for me to inspire or debunk this topic. And, unlike most, I am offering the perspective of someone who actively deals with this kind of demonic activity and information.
Yesterday in NYC, the Arch of Palmyra went up with boisterous religious fanfare on the Internet – “hell’s gate” “devil’s portal” “star gates”, etc. blah blah hysterical blah blah. This same arch went up in London’s Trafalgar Square back in July and stayed through August.
Here is a photo of that event in London in July 2016.

From there the same 3D replicated Arch was moved to New York’s Time Square on September 19th. It will be on display in City Hall Park for a week before being shipped to Dubai.
The Institute for Digital Archaeology succeeded in a 3D original reconstruction of the over 2,000-year-old monument with the help of the world’s largest 3D printer. Two robots in Carrara, Italy, then used the 3D modeling to re-create the intricate arch out of Egyptian marble that weighs 30,000 pounds and stands almost 25 feet tall.

This arch is a 3D copy of the of the Arch of Palmyra in Syria destroyed by ISIS destroyed in late August 2015. It is NOT a part of the original Temple of Baal and it has none of the demonic imprint of anything associated with the Temple of Baal. It’s not made of the same stone nor is the stone used in its construction from the same land. It’s essentially assembled like an Ikea furniture according to Giacomo Massari, from the Italian company Torart, that made the arch in Carrara, Italy.
Here is what the original arch of the Temple Baal looks like:
As you can see by comparison below, the Arch erected in London and NYC are not even close in resemblance to the Temple Baal arch.

The original Temple of Baal (also known as Temple of Bel) dedicated in 32 AD was consecrated to the Mesopotamian god Baal/Bel who was worshipped along with the lunar God Aglibol and the sun god Yarhibol as the center of religious life in Palmyra. (Wikipedia)
If you listened to all the “experts” this was the introduction of Baal worship back into America and a tribute to the god Molech, to whom babies were sacrificed.
According to the Holman Bible Dictionary (Paul E Robertson): “Molech” is the name of a pagan deity to whom human sacrifices were made. This deity often is associated with Ammon (compare 1 Kings 11:7 —) “the abomination of the children of Ammon.” Leviticus 20:5 condemns those who “commit whoredom with Molech” (see also Leviticus 18:21; Leviticus 20:3-5; 2 Kings 23:10; Jeremiah 32:35 ). Some recent archaeological evidence points to child sacrifice in ancient Ammon. Many scholars contend that all the biblical texts referring to Molech can be understood by interpreting it as a divine name. In times of apostasy some Israelites, apparently in desperation, made their children “go through the fire to Molech” (Leviticus 18:21; Leviticus 20:2-5; 2 Kings 23:10; compare 2 Kings 17:31; Jeremiah 7:31; Jeremiah 19:5; Jeremiah 32:35 ). It generally is assumed that references like these are to the sacrifices of children in the Valley of Hinnom at a site known as Topheth (“Topheth” probably means “firepit” in Syriac). See Hinnom; Tepheth. Precisely how this was done is unknown. Some contend that the children were thrown into a raging fire. Certain rabbinic writers describe a hollow bronze statue in the form of a human but with the head of an ox. According to the rabbis, children were placed in the structure which was then heated from below. Drums were pounded to drown out the cries of the children.
Now, if you read the articles or listen to the videos inundating the Internet this is what you are being warned of in regards to the installation of the 3D Replica Arch:
TEMPLE OF BEL COMING TO NY AND LONDON
ALTAR OF SATAN AND CHILD SACRIFICE
GATES OF HELL BEING OPENED
DEMON STARGATE ARCHES
Did that actual Temple of Bel/Baal go up anywhere? No.
This is fear mongering for the sake of profiteering and self-promotion, in my opinion.
Altar of Satan and Child Sacrifice?
If this is what the profitcy watchers and end time criers are afraid of, they are a little late. Those altars, now called Abortion Clinics have been erected in America and sacrificing babies to Molech since Roe v Wade became the law of the land in 1973. No arches or temples were needed to appease this spirit as it was fed over 58 MILLION babies according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) since 1973. There are over 3,000 abortions per day in America alone.
As for as the opening of stargates or portals…please, people…stop getting your spiritual information from people who glean from the Syfy network and science fiction movies.
Are there portals and gateways?
Yes, there are and I know personally because SRT has been tasked with closing them for the Kingdom of God since 2007.
Can they open anywhere at any time like these writers would have you believe?
No. They cannot and do not.
It takes adept, in-depth rituals and usually blood sacrifices to open portals/gateways.
In 2016 the fallen and their offspring do not need marble arches or Old Testament type structures to manifest or manipulate mankind. They can do that with electronic and digital technology as well as the rampant pervasive sin that floods our airwaves and infects our lives. And, the fact is, such structures – arches, monoliths, statues, etc. – with original stone from their site of origin have gone up in our cities and nation for many years now. This REPLICA is just another one and the enemy is using it as a distraction from what we as Believers in the King of kings and Lord of lords should be doing right now.
A far better use of time regarding these replicas turning up in cities all over the world would be to share the Gospel and the need for a Savior. A time is coming when the gods that inspired those structures will reappear on the Earth and the only thing worth knowing then is if your name is written in the Lambs Book of Life or not.
None of the other information being sold to you will do you any good when that time comes.
Are you filled with the Spirit that raised Yeshua from the grave and spoke these fallen angels into existence?
THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS!
What you know about arches, portals, gateways, bones, mounds, etc. won’t matter in that moment.
What will matter is DO YOU KNOW HIM and DOES HE KNOW YOU!
That’s my experiential opinion and I am sticking to it!
