Apparently, people in these two cities have already approved it – in the name of archaeology – because it is to be there in April. It will be set up in Times Square. The arch will be 48 feet high and 23 feet wide.
The group, according to ProphecyNewsWatch, is the Institute of Digital Archaeology. It is a joint venture between the universities of Harvard and Oxford, and the Dubai's Museum of the Future. It is to be part of the UNESCO's World Heritage Week.
Comments: There seems to be little doubt that the ones bringing this abomination to America and England have little knowledge of what Baal worship involved. At least, I can't imagine why they would want to promote this temple, even if it was beautiful at one time.
It was not surprising that God ordered its destruction. Basically, it was a fertility cult that involved displays of public sex of every kind imaginable – and then some – and the public was invited to participate.
In addition to the general debauchery, it seems that one of the most prominent features of Baal worship was the sacrifice of children. This is seen in Jeremiah 10:4,5: "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; 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."
God wanted it destroyed because it could only hurt His people and prevent them from walking with a holy God. Nothing godly can come out of Baal worship or the recollection of it.
To some degree, much of what the cult practiced about 2,500 years ago is openly still practiced today, in America, but in a more "respectable" form! Any kind of sex can be viewed online at any time of day. It is being promoted not only on the Internet, but also in the movie industry all the time. Our unborn babies are being slaughtered in the abortion industry – every day! No wonder that in the very next verse that God promised to destroy those who engaged in its practices!
Christians, it's time to pray! Our nation needs revival! Put away the pornography, the indifference, faithlessness, and the things that grieve our Lord and get revived, then help others to do the same. We still have the promise of II Chronicles 7:14: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
