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

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?
April 2016: The Temple Of Baal Will Be Erected In Times Square In New York City
By Michael [Snyder] on March 22, 2016
The Temple of Baal (also known as the Temple of Bel) was a world famous landmark that was located in Palmyra, Syria. In August 2015, this temple was destroyed by ISIS, and most of the world recoiled in terror at the loss of a 'cultural heritage site'. In an attempt to 'preserve history', two exact replicas of the 50 foot arch that stood at the entrance to the temple will be erected in April 2016 in Times Square in New York City and in Trafalgar Square in London. Needless to say, a lot of people are quite disturbed by this. In ancient times, child sacrifice and bisexual orgies were common practices at the altars of Baal, and now we are putting up a monument of worship to this false god in the heart of our most important city.

Life Among the Ruins

Michael Snyder Continues:
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.

# While it is true Septimus Severus had a victory over the Parthians, the Parthians usually won the wars vs. Rome. #

Sept 19, 2016 is Ezekiel 8:3
3 He stretched out the form of a hand and caught me by a lock of my head; and the Spirit lifted me up between earth and heaven and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the entrance of the north gate of the inner court, where the seat of the idol of jealousy, which provokes to jealousy, was located.
