A Spirit Of Violence Rises In America Following The Unveiling Of The ‘Harbinger Of Baal’ In New York

Is it just a coincidence that we have seen violence erupt all over America since the unveiling of the arch that served as a gateway to the Temple of Baal in New York City on September 19th?  First there were the terror attacks in New York, New Jersey and Minnesota, then there were the unprecedented riots in Charlotte, and over the weekend there was a horrific mass shooting near Seattle.  All of these events took place within a week after the Arch of Triumph was put up in New York.  Baal was an ancient deity that was often associated with violence and bloodshed, and those that erected this arch have no idea what they are messing with.

Rabbi Jonathan Cahn was standing in the crowd when “the harbinger of Baal” was unveiled last Monday afternoon, and he posted video of the unveiling on YouTube

In his best-selling book The Harbinger, Rabbi Cahn documented a number of very specific parallels between ancient Israel before it fell and America today, and now he is adding “the harbinger of Baal” to the list.  The following is an excerpt from a WND article that Rabbi Cahn just authored about the unveiling of this arch…

But Israel’s defiance of God was linked to a specific entity – the god Baal. Baal was the god to whom they sacrificed their children, before whom they practiced sexual immorality and called good “evil” and evil “good.” Baal was the god in whose name Israel persecuted the prophets and the righteous of their day.

Baal was their anti-god, their substitute for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the god of their apostasy and the god of their destruction. Baal was their devil god. In fact the name for satan, Beelzebul and Beelzebub, is derived from Baal – meaning “Baal of the flies” and “Baal of dung.”

So in the template of “The Harbinger,” when the judgment finally fell, when the ancient kingdom of Israel was wiped off the earth, the people were worshiping Baal. In the last days of Israel, when the harbingers appeared, they appeared in a land covered with the images of Baal. It was the worship of Baal that ultimately brought about the harbingers of judgment. Thus Baal was the god of the harbingers.

In his article, Rabbi Cahn also included a stunning photograph from the unveiling of a stone slate that the organizers had placed close to the arch that contained an image of the Temple of Bel (Baal).  This was obviously put there to remind people of the connection that this arch has to that ancient pagan temple.

Perhaps it is just a coincidence, but I find it very, very strange that there has been a dramatic outbreak of violence in this country in the week since this arch was put up.

The most recent incident happened over the weekend.  A 20-year-old Turkish immigrant named Arcan Cetin walked into a Macy’s department store in the Seattle area and started firing.  Five innocent people were killed, and this incident immediately made headlines all over America

Surveillance footage from the mall shows the suspect entering the building late Friday without a weapon but walking into Macy’s 10 minutes later with what appeared to be a hunting rifle. He fired in the makeup area, then fled on foot out of range of cameras.

One of the victims was a 16-year-old girl who beat cancer, the Seattle Times and KOMO-TV reported.

Police say that Cetin was in a “zombie-like state” when he was later caught and arrested, and authorities say that his motivation for the attack is “unclear” at this moment.

But we do know that the Somali immigrant that stabbed nine people at a Macy’s in central Minnesota just a few days earlier was a radical Islamist, and it has been revealed that the man that planted improvised explosive devices in New York had actually attended a Pakistani seminary

The alleged New Jersey terrorist charged with trying to blow up Chelsea last weekend with homemade bombs spent weeks getting an “Islamic education” at a Pakistani seminary, according to a report.

Ahman Khan Rahami spent three weeks in Kuchlak, an area described as a longtime “hub” for the Taliban, in 2011, a security official inside the country told the Guardian.

Rahami, 28, attended lectures at the Kaan Kuwa Naqshbandi madrasa.

For a very long time I have been warning that we would see a sharp increase in the number of Islamic terror attacks inside the United States, and it is now happening.

I have also been warning that rioting and civil unrest would get a lot worse in our major cities, and what we witnessed in Charlotte over the past week was absolutely chilling.  Stores were looted, objects were being hurled at passing vehicles from overpasses, one news photographer was almost thrown into a roaring fire, and at least 16 police officers were injured.

And of course this is just the latest in a string of riots which has hit our country in recent years.  The following is from a list of these riots that the Daily Caller has compiled

Charlotte – 2016

Milwaukee – 2016

St. Paul – 2016

Baltimore – 2015

Berkeley – 2014

Ferguson – 2014

Brooklyn – 2013

Anaheim – 2012

Los Angeles – 2012

Los Angeles – 2010

Could it be possible that the violence that we have seen during the past week in Charlotte, New York, New Jersey, Minnesota and the Seattle area has some sort of connection to “the harbinger of Baal” that was just unveiled in New York City?

I am sure that this will be hotly debated by both sides.

But what should be exceedingly clear to all of us is that a spirit of violence is rising in America.  The tensions that are causing riots like we just witnessed in Charlotte continue to intensify, and the growth of radical Islam around the world will continue to motivate jihadists in this country and elsewhere to conduct more terror attacks.

For decades, most of us could just take for granted that we could go about our daily lives in peace without having to worry about some senseless act of violence.  But now that is starting to change in a major way, and “normal life” in America is never going to be the same again.

Confirmed: The Arch Of Triumph Is Going Up In New York City On September 19th

SEPT 19 2016

Do you remember all of the buzz about the arch from the Temple of Baal that was supposed to go up in Times Square back in April?  Well, that project was ultimately canceled, but now it has been resurrected in a new form.  In April a reproduction of a different arch, the Arch of Triumph, was erected in Trafalgar Square in London, and now another reproduction of that famous arch will be going up in New York City on September 19th.  This particular arch is not the same one that once stood directly in front of the Temple of Baal in Syria.  Rather, the Arch of Triumph was constructed at a later date by the Romans, and it served to link the main street of the Colonnade with the Temple.  So there is still definitely a connection with the Temple of Baal, but it is not as direct as had originally been envisioned.

The organization behind this effort is the Institute for Digital Archaeology.  They are extremely excited to be bringing this project to New York next month as you can see from this excerpt which comes from their official website

There are few cities in the world as much defined by their architecture as New York.  The Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge — all symbols of the audacity, strength, technical prowess, diversity and optimism of what Ezra Pound called “the most beautiful city in the world.”  It is also a city that has known terrible loss — first and foremost the loss of life, but also the loss of familiar landmarks that helped inform the city’s identity.   The Triumphal Arch, a symbol of resilience in the face of loss, will be a fitting tribute to America’s great metropolis.  The arch will stand in Manhattan, surrounded by buildings adorned with classical features suggesting the common cultural roots of East and West. We hope that you will visit us this fall to consider the relationship between people and the places they inhabit.

Their website also features a public letter from their executive director which confirms that September 19th is the date when this arch will go up.  You can read the public letter for yourself right here

So we have it directly from the source that September 19th is the official date when the arch will be unveiled.

I find it very interesting that one of the reasons why New York was picked was to remind visitors of “the indomitable human capacity to rebuild what has been lost.”  Of course that is a reference to 9/11, and in his book The Harbinger, Jonathan Cahn has pointed out all of the parallels between America’s bold pronouncements to rebuild in the aftermath of 9/11 and Israel’s defiant statements as recorded in Isaiah 9:10…

“The bricks are fallen down,
    but we will build with hewn stones;
the sycamores are cut down,
    but we will replace them with cedars.”

When a reproduction of the Arch of Triumph was put up in Trafalgar Square back in April, it was also described by a major British news source as “an act of defiance”…

A monumental recreation of the destroyed Arch of Triumph in Palmyra, Syria, has been unveiled in London’s Trafalgar Square.

The 1,800-year-old arch was destroyed by Islamic State militants last October and the 6-metre (20ft) model, made in Italy from Egyptian marble, is intended as an act of defiance: to show that restoration of the ancient site is possible if the will is there.

Many people have never heard of the Arch of Triumph, but it is actually a UNESCO World Heritage site.  The following is some basic information about it from Wikipedia

The Monumental Arch, also called the Arch of Triumph (Arabic: قوس النصر‎‎) or the Arch of Septimius Severus, was a Roman ornamental archway in Palmyra, Syria. It was built in the 3rd century during the reign of emperor Septimius Severus. Its ruins later became one of the main attractions of Palmyra, until it was destroyed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant in October 2015. Most of its stonework still survives and there are plans to rebuild it using anastylosis.

I want to stress that this is not the same arch that once stood directly in front of the Temple of Baal in Palmyra.  But according to Wikipedia it did connect the Temple of Baal with “the main street of the Colonnade”…

The Monumental Arch was built sometime during the reign of emperor Septimius Severus, which lasted from 193 to 211 AD; it linked the main street of the Colonnade and the Temple of Bel.[1] The arch was meant to integrate the southern and central parts of the Colonnade as its location marks a change of 30° in the orientation of the street.[2]

According to some sources, the structure was built as a triumphal arch to commemorate the Romans’ victories over the Parthians.

Once again, I think that there is something important that I need to point out.  The Romans constructed this arch after a victory over Parthia, and in his extraordinary book on the Parthians Stephen M. Collins has shown that the Parthian Empire was largely made up of people that came from the northern tribes of Israel.  So the original purpose of this arch was to celebrate victory over Israel.

Is that really something that we want to put up in New York?

And even though this arch did not stand directly in front of the Temple of Baal in Syria, it was part of the overall complex.  In a previous article, I pointed out the similarities between the child sacrifice that would be done to honor Baal in ancient times and what is taking place in America today.  This is what Jeremiah 10:4-6 says…

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.

Needless to say, we have killed far more of our own sons and daughters than the Baal worshippers of the ancient world ever did.  Since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, more than 58 million children have been murdered in this country.

Another parallel between ancient Baal worship and what is going on in America today is the public exhibition of sexual acts.  While sacrifices to Baal were being conducted, there would be wild bisexual orgies around the altars, and often large numbers of people would gather to watch.  Just yesterday, I wrote about the crazy sexual orgies that are going on at Burning Man right now, and we have become a nation that is absolutely addicted with watching other people have sex.  According to one study that is regularly quoted by Charisma News, an astounding 68 percent of all Christian men watch pornography on a regular basis.

So it somehow seems appropriate that this arch is going up in the heart of our most important city.  We have so much in common with the ancient pagan world, and so it makes sense that we would want to celebrate their culture.

Unless something dramatically changes at the last minute, this arch is going to be put up in New York City on September 19th.

Unfortunately, most New Yorkers are not going to have any idea what the real story behind this arch really is.
