Arch of Baal emerging again, and again, and again
The replica of the arch of the Temple of Baal has been on a world tour the past few years, having been put on display in London, New York and then Dubai for a global summit. And it was recently rebuilt for yet another global summit, this time the G7 meeting of the leading industrialized nations held in Florence, Italy.
The arch, a reconstruction of an ancient Roman building destroyed by ISIS in Syria, has been promoted by its creators at the Institute of Digital Technology as a symbol of defiance against terrorism and a tribute to world heritage.
But why is a reconstruction of a gateway to a temple of a pagan god whose rites were marked by child sacrifice and ritual prostitution being so persistently publicized at globally important gatherings?
One rabbi, a member of the nascent Sanhedrin attempting to recreate the ancient Jewish legal body, sees dire implications in the repeated use of the arch. Rabbi Daniel Assur told Breaking Israel News the arch is a harbinger of the “New World Order.” He declared the arch’s repeated appearances at prominent locations indicate “a pattern moving toward a specific goal – Messiah.”
The rabbi believes the globalist movement isn’t secular or atheist but, instead, undergirded by pagan spirituality.
“They combine worship of Baal with worship of the Egyptian god, Isis, and also the true name of God,” he told Breaking Israel News. “They need to bring together all of these elements.”
The rabbi believes the arch “is the portal for the new world the Talmud is talking about” and could be used either by the New World Order or the Messiah.
Pastor Carl Gallups, author of the end times examination “When The Lion Roars,” said people are right to ascribe deep spiritual significance to the arch.
“Rabbi Assur is not the only one who sees the spiritual significance in the Palmyra arch’s victory tour,” he told WND.
“I understand the purely cultural, historical and archaeological significance of the arch, which some might find interesting. However, the biblical and spiritual implications cannot be missed, for those who have ‘eyes to see.’ (Click to Article)
