Arch of Baal (Satan’s sneaky project) Introduction   To make a long story short, Palmyra’s Arch of Triumph was built by the Romans in the 3rd century AD, and it served as an entrance to the Temple of Bel, which was built as early as 32 AD.  Bel was one of the many names for the ancient Babylonian god, Marduk, who was created in the Enuma Elish, an ancient mythical tale on 7 clay tablets.  Murduk was portrayed as the victor of a heavenly battle, and thus became the ‘god of gods’.  The name ‘Bel’ simply meant ‘lord’ so it was adapted to many gods.  The Canaanite spelling, Baal, is used in the Bible.  Marduk was also the first god that humans concocted through a story, rather than being a physical object such as the sun, moon, earth, etc, which is why I think Babylon is referred to, in Revelation, as the ‘mother of prostitutes and abominations of the earth’. (Rev 17:5)    Anyway, Palmyra’s Temple of Bel was converted to a Christian church by the Romans and later became an Islamic mosque, used by the Muslims, but it was destroyed by ISIS in 2015.  The Arch of Triumph, at the entrance, was the last to be destroyed in Oct 2015.  Yet, by being destroyed, it has become even more well known and is making a comeback, in the end times, which is not surprising because I’ve always thought that Marduk was the “foreign god” in the ‘post-rapture’ verses of Daniel 11:37-39. Re-creation and connection to God’s riddle of 666   The Institute for Digital Archaeology, based in the UK, along with partners such as Dubai Future Foundation and UNESCO, recreated the Arch of Baal using 3-D technology and a robotic drilling machine to carve a 2/3 scale model out of Egyptian marble.  The original happened to be 27 feet tall so a perfect .666 scale model turned out to be 18 feet (or 6+6+6).  Of course, those same two numbers are used to ‘calculate the number of the beast’ in Revelation 13:18 (i.e. 666/18=37), which leads to God’s timeline of 37’s. (proof of the riddle) Recent history is very suspicious   The construction dimensions are only part of the story because the arch was created to make a world tour and the timing and locations have turned out to be very interesting.  The Arch of Triumph made its debut in London’s Trafalgar Square, on April 19-21, 2016, which coincided with the start of Beltane, an important pagan holiday on the Satanic calendar.  Next, it appeared in New York, at City Hall Park, on Sept 18-24, 2016, which coincided with the UN General Assembly (plus the fall equinox, which is also considered a Satanic holiday).  Finally, it was set up in Dubai, UAE, on Feb 12-14, 2017, which happened to coincide with the World Governments Summit   From there, it went to Florence, Italy, March 27 - April 27, 2017, which coincided with the first ever G7 Cultural Summit (formally the G8 but Russia was dropped).  The culture ministers from US, Germany, Japan, France, UK, Italy, and Canada were in attendance.  From there, it stayed in Arona, Italy, for a long time.    The Arch of Baal was recently displayed on the National Mall, in Washington DC, September 26-29, 2018, which once again corresponded to the UN General Assembly.   From there, according to Breaking Israeli News, it’s supposed to be set up for one month, starting October 17, 2018, next to the International Criminal Court (ICC), which is in the Hague, Netherlands.    Therefore, the Arch of Baal has been set up during a major Satanic holiday and at least 4 world summits.  I don’t know if Satan has accomplished anything with this pagan symbol, but it seems like he’s trying. Speculation on the abomination   The BIG question is: Could the arch possibly make a stop in Israel?  Personally, I think it’s a long shot, but the arch is always promoted as a symbol of ‘peace and unity’ because it re-created something that ISIS’s terrorism destroyed.  Thus, it could possibility happen, to show solidarity with the Arabs.  Besides, a major sponsor is the UAE, which Israel has been getting closer to, along with Saudi Arabia, since they are all against Iran.  I’m not saying that it will happen, but if the Arch of Baal was to be set up in Jerusalem, it would definitely be a candidate for the ‘abomination that causes desolation’.    In my opinion, ‘if’ that was to happen, the Mount of Olives would be the most likely place, because olive branches represent peace and there’s plenty of room.  Plus, since the Mount of Olives is just east of the Temple Mount, it would still be considered a ‘wing’ of the temple. (Daniel 9:27)  As I said, the arch is being promoted as a gesture of solidarity, and Paul said, “While people are saying ‘peace and safety’, destruction will come on them suddenly.” (1 Thess 5:3)  The ‘destruction’ would come in the form of an earthquake, and possible tsunami, which would be the 6th Seal. (Rev 6:13-14)  That is when the rapture will also take place, which will bring unprecedented distress on the whole world. (Matt 24:15-31)    Like I said, I don’t know if the Arch of Baal will be set up in Israel, most less Jerusalem, but I thought I would point out this abomination possibility because the arch has a connection to Babylon, which is mentioned in Revelation 17 & 18.  Of course, the connection is that the Arch served as the entrance to the Temple of Bel (Marduk), who is the patron god of Babylon.  Marduk is likely the “foreign god”, whom the antichrist turns to, during the post-rapture tribulation, in Daniel 11:37-39.
