The Arch From the Temple of Baal Planned for New York City has Been Canceled

The Temple of Baal is NOT coming to Times Square in New York City next month.  This is great news, and it represents an incredible victory for Christians in the United States.  As you will see below, the New York Times, Snopes and a whole host of other mainstream news sources reported last month that everything was on track for reproductions of the giant 48-foot-tall arch that stood in front of the Temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria, to be put up simultaneously in Times Square in New York City and Trafalgar Square in London during the month of April. 

But now that will not be happening.  The only arch that will be going up will be in Trafalgar Square, and it won’t be the one from the Temple of Baal.  Instead, the Institute for Digital Archaeology has changed plans and will be putting up a reproduction of the Arch of Triumph which the Romans originally built in Palmyra and that has nothing to do with Baal.  So why has there been such a dramatic change in plans?

On Friday, I received an urgent message from a contact that has been investigating this, and she told me that she had talked directly to someone from the Institute for Digital Archaeology and that she had been informed that no arch was going up in New York during the month of April.

I pressed her for confirmation, because every mainstream source that I could find said that the arch from the Temple of Baal was indeed going up next month.  So her information would definitely change everything, but I needed to be able to confirm this.

Well, confirmation came in the form of an article from the Telegraph, which is one of the most important news sources in the United Kingdom.  On Friday, they reported that the original plan to put up the arch from the Temple of Baal in New York and London simultaneously had been scrapped…

When the IDA revealed last December that it was intending to use its data and expertise to build not one but two replica Palmyra arches – to be unveiled simultaneously in Trafalgar Square in London and Times Square in New York – it generated headlines across the world.

Since then there has been some backtracking on the original idea. There will be no simultaneous unveiling in New York – they may transport the London arch there later, or build another one – and the Palmyra arch that is being reconstructed is no longer the entrance to the Temple of Bel (which survived an attempt to blow it up in August 2015) but the Arch of Triumph (partially destroyed in October) formerly located at one end of the Great Colonnade.

As you can see, this report confirms what they were originally planning to do, and this represents a massive change of direction.

Just a few weeks ago, everything appeared to be all set for this arch from the Temple of Baal to go up in Times Square in April.  For example, the following is what the New York Times reported on March 19th

NEXT month, the Temple of Baal will come to Times Square. Reproductions of the 50-foot arch that formed the temple’s entrance are to be installed in New York and in London, a tribute to the 2,000-year-old structure that the Islamic State destroyed last year in the Syrian town of Palmyra. The group’s rampage through Palmyra, a city that reached its peak in the second and third century A.D., enraged the world, spurring scholars and conservationists into action.

Of course the New York Times was far from alone in reporting about this.  The New York Post had also reported that this was a done deal…

A towering arch of an ancient temple in Palmyra, Syria, that has been mostly destroyed by ISIS terrorists will be recreated by a huge 3-D printer and put on display in New York City this spring, officials said on Monday.

The life-size model of the original 2,000-year-old structure, known as the Arch of the Temple of Bel, will stand approximately 48 feet high and 23 feet wide.

And as I write this article, Snopes is still reporting that the arch from the Temple of Baal is going to go up in New York and London…

While it is true replicas of Palmyra’s Temple of Baal arch are being constructed for temporary display in New York and London, the project solely involves reproducing the structure’s arch and not creating a functional building. Moreover, interest in reproducing the demolished antiquity is archeological in nature, not religious.

The big question is this…

Why has there been such a sudden change in plans?

First of all, why is no arch going up in New York next month?

Secondly, why has the arch in London been switched to an entirely different arch?

Could it be possible that the alternative media has played a role?  Since the original New York Times story last month, a massive firestorm has erupted in the alternative media and this story has gone megaviral all over the Internet.

Could it be possible that they have backtracked because of how much negative attention this story has been receiving?

Of course let us not underestimate the prayers of God’s people.  Once this story went viral, Christians all over America started praying against this arch.  From personal experience, I know that the prayers of righteous men and women are extremely powerful, and we may never know how much of an impact they had on this situation.

So let us celebrate this victory, but let us also understand that what this country is facing is not going to fundamentally change unless there is true repentance.  Because even though a monument to Baal is not going up in New York City next month, we continue to embrace the ways of Baal as a nation.

Since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, more than 58 million babies have been murdered in America, and of course this was a key feature of Baal worship in the ancient Middle East.  One place where we find this in the Bible is in Jeremiah 10:4-6…

4 Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this place, and have burned incense in it unto other gods, whom neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents;

5 They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their sons with fire for burnt offerings unto Baal, which I commanded not, nor spake it, neither came it into my mind:

6 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that this place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son of Hinnom, but The valley of slaughter.

Another key feature of Baal worship that we see reflected in modern society that I discussed in a previous article is the public exhibition of sexual acts.  In ancient times, there would be crazed bisexual orgies around the altars of Baal, and large crowds would gather around to watch.  And of course today we are a nation that is absolutely addicted to watching other people have sex.  In fact, it has been estimated that 68 percent of all Christian men watch pornography on a regular basis.

Unless we change our ways, it is inevitable that the judgement of God is going to hit America extremely hard.  This is one of the topics that I cover in my new book entitled “The Rapture Verdict“.  God keep calling us to repent, but we keep shaking our fists at Him as a nation.

At some point, time will run out.

For the moment, let us celebrate this victory over the Temple of Baal.

But let us not relax one bit, because there is an enormous amount of work that needs to be done to try to wake this country up while we still can.

      Now, if you can only get over your abhorrence to calling Negroes “black”. Ethnic slur some say.

      • 2QIK4U

        Really ? But they ARE black so how is truth a slur? So when European’s are called white ,we can say they’re racist too? Negro’s are the most racist people on the Globe. They flip the script on everything and what’s worse are the black muslim like President Osama. Found out Bin ladins FAKE death photo is a computer compisite of him alive mixed together with another photo of a dead afghani. Hopefully one of these SUPERSLUETH “reporters” here can create an article about it since i cant post the pic here? :idea:

    • The Clucker

      :idea: :idea: 100% BELIEVABLE!

      Just like does anyone know the REAL MEANING BEHING 911? I betcha NO ONE KNOWS WHAT HISTORICAL EVENT HAPPENED BACK IN 1776 ON THE GROUND ZERO land? Everyone only “thinks” about the twin towers, but WHAT WAS THE LAND BEFORE THEY WENT UP?

      It was THE PHYSICAL LOCATION OF THE SIGNING OF THE US CONSTITUTION! Wake the Hell Up People! Washington DC was not always the center of power, but the specific land of the twin towers HELD THE FIRST HISTORIC BUILDING WHERE THE US Constitution WAS PHYSICALLY SIGNED! Understand NOW why America and our Constitution WAS DESTROYED IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD? Only stupid americans don’t know what this scared ground represents! See now how destroying it showen the world that the US WAS BEING DESTORYED TO ITS VERY CORE? And who was president? Yeah, Bush, who Grandpa Prescott Bush was CONVICTED OF AN ATTEMPTED COUP OF THE US and the WHITE HOUSE back in 1933! See how the Bush Family is a crminal family, and how much you the people are being lied to? See how easy it is for the US Gov and those in power to MAKE YOU FORGET YOUR REAL HISTORY?

      Do a 5 second search engine check for “Prescott Bush 1933″ and you will see all the facts of the criminal Bush’s family secrets! Now do you understand who controls the US and is out to destroy it? I ask you to do it yourself so you can learn this FACT of the Attempted Bush’s COUP OF AMERICA ON YOUR OWN! So you don’t think I’m trying to pass off any lie to you.

      Learn your past, to know your future.. Bless all of you and your families in the future…. Pass the truth on to others, and start to wake up on whats going on outside your front door….

        CORRECT. There was also a tree planted, of significance, and a small chapel in 1776. I believe they still exist or was the tree uprooted???

        US Constitution was signed in Philadelphia. Tho the swearing in of Pres Washington happened in NYC if recall correctly

    • chefjim

      I feel guilty because I wasn’t happy for this country. This change of plans is a step in the wrong direction to those who are looking for that Happy Hope and it is a setback for those waiting for Him and longing more and more for their Savior because the whole world has gone so wrong that the ONLY hope is for God to intervene! Forgive me for not wanting REVIVAL of this economy or political system. I have seen enough of this evil world and am vexed to the point of depression every single day that this false system of “things” and money doesn’t change for the better by God Himself coming in the clouds. It is our only hope! Do your homework and learn how the truth has been hidden from most people and the world is under the control of the principalities and powers and rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places and then, after you learn that, tell us all that you still want MORE.

    • Creepy Little Book

      And right on cue it the old “we prayed it away angle” useful for anytime the Rapture fails to happen on a predicted date or any other time the narrative changes based on facts. Oh and lookie loo a book for sale too, more money to be made exploiting the religious beliefs of the gullible for profit. Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!

      This is Great News.

      The Illuminati, will return to God.

      About the Virtual sex culture: Those who control your brainwaves,
      Control your hormones. Hint, They control the $10 trillion porno market.

      Stop patronizing them.

      They don’t like people going to the gym, nor beautiful music, because it limits their mind control.

      Our next Victory has to be, to take down these weaponized cell towers, that are already in use, as attack sites.
      Too many people are kidnapped, under their Evil Eye. MKUltra.

      Why was it to big to stuff up Jew York’s arse.

    • 2QIK4U

      Awwww rats, I was looking forward to legally sacraficing a politician there. It would be legal use of a structure for it’s intended purpose. The sick part is it would be legal !

    • 2QIK4U

      They’ll probably still do it but underground in the exact spot. Just lie to the public again so they can proceed. I predict from the 19th of april there will be mass killing in u.s the date of the blood sacrifices begins on the 19th . David koresh’s compound was burnt to the ground killing over 70 men,women and CHILDREN on that date. Compare APRIL 19th of any year to mass killings in America over a ten to thirteen day period. The results will shock you ! :evil:
