They are working very hard worldwide to endear this satanic city to your hearts.  Here you will find some notes that might help you get an idea of the TRUTH about this place.  You do not want to be any part of the RESURRECTION of this ANCIENT City.  You should not be connected with the rebuilding, refurbishing or repairing of any of these GRAVEN IMAGES or MONUMENTAL STRUCTURES, anywhere around the world.  I will continue to update this page.  Keep Watching.   Check out this link to Temple of Baal Coming to Washington DC

The People:

Amorites, Aramaeans, and Arabs. -Amorites used in the Bible to refer to certain highland mountaineers who inhabited the land of Canaan, described in Genesis10:16 as descendants of Canaan, the son of Ham. They are described as a powerful people of great stature “like the height of the cedars” (Amos 2:9) who had occupied the land east and west of the Jordan. The height and strength mentioned in Amos 2:9 has led some Christian scholars, including Orville J. Nave, who wrote the classic Nave’s Topical Bible, to refer to the Amorites as “giants”.[11]

The Amorite king, Og, was described as the last “of the remnant of the Rephaim” (Deuteronomy 3:11). The terms Amorite and Canaanite seem to be used more or less interchangeably, Canaan being more general and Amorite a specific component among the Canaanites who inhabited the land.  Wikipedia

The Amorites and the Canaanite Phoenicians were not the same people

The Amorites were warlike mountaineers, no one is sure what was their ethnic origin. Their language is unknown. Only one word of the Amorite language survives, “Shenir,” the name they gave to Mount Hermon The Amorites were fierce warriors who were represented on the Egyptian monuments with fair skins, light hair, blue eyes, curved or hooked noses, and pointed beards. They are supposed to have been men of great stature; their king, Og, is described by Moses as the last “of the remnant of the giants” (Deut. 3:11).

The ‘Amorite’ race appeared in the area of the Middle Euphrates, about the time of Abraham (c.1900 B.C. while it should be noted that the city of Tyre was founded in 2,750 B.C.) they had gained control of the whole of Babylonia. Prof. R. B. Dixon, in his Racial History of Man (1923), p. 172, mentions that in the period 2500 B.C. – 1500 B.C. the population of Palestine consisted primarily of ‘Mediterranean’ and ‘Caspian’ peoples.  Source


Do You See the Self-Portrait of SATAN in the Outline of the City?

The City:

Tadmor was located in a fertile oasis in the Syrian desert 140 miles northeast of Damascus.  Its location between Mesopotamia and the western part of the Fertile Crescent rendered it an important caravan city between 2000 B.C. and the early Islamic period in the 7-8th centuries C.E. (i.e. A.D.).  Tadmor reached its height of prosperity during the Roman period and was then called PALMYRA.  The well-preserved ruins tell a detailed story of a wealthy Syrian metropolis.  (Harper’s Bible Dictionary)

PALMYRA’s magnificent ruins reveal much about the reign of Queen Zenobia during the 2nd century C.E.  Palmyra is located near a hot-water spring and was an ideal place for caravans to stop and rest.  These caravans were traveling between Iraq and Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and Jordan—and were trading in silk from China to the Mediterranean Sea.

TADMOR (Heb. תַּדְמֹר; Palmyra), an oasis city at the point of intersection of the caravan roads in the central Syrian desert, halfway between the Euphrates and the Orontes River in the Mediterranean Sea area. Tadmor was situated on the crossroads between Syria-Canaan and Mesopotamia, on the one hand, and between these areas and Arabia on the other. Its resulting importance goes back to the Old Babylonian period. Without doubt, the rich trade between the “West” and Mesopotamia, well known from the *Mari documents and other sources, flowed through Tadmor.

a well-protected central station for commercial caravans, diplomatic envoys, and royal tours, and as a crossroads for cultural influences., being the key point of connection between east and west and north and south, King Solomon rebuilt [fortified and reorganized]… Tamar [ kere Tadmor; cf. below] in the desert [ midbar ] in the land” . In II Chronicles 8:3–4 “Solomon went [in a military-political campaign] to Hamath-Zobah and took it, and he built [see above] Tadmor in the desert and all the store-cities which he built in Hamath.” was all important for Solomon to hold, in order to maintain at least commercial control over the west up to the Euphrates. By holding and rebuilding Tadmor, he assumed control of the flow of commerce for some time, thus giving a new turn to the economic development of the whole “west” that persisted even after his period it was a key point in his north-south control plan.

Palmyra served as a border between the Roman and Persian Empires. The Sassanid Persians, however, had been causing a good deal of trouble for the Romans, as they had access to Eastern trade borders in and out of Rome.

This city was very strategic because of its location and its control over the movement of livestock and merchandise both by land and by water between the East and the West.  This City was located at the central crossroad between the North and South and the East and West.  The city was comprised of four areas, controlled by four families/tribes who each had their own.

Now, this right here gives me a very strong sense that something very big is happening.  I know a lot about spiritual warfare and I know first of all that Gates and Doors are VERY important.  They let things in and they let things out.  Spiritual entities move through Gateways ALWAYS.  Now here, we are talking about a structure that has (4) FOUR Gateways in one.  FACING ALL FOUR Elemental Portals.  When magicians, Wiccans, witches, and Satanists work their magick workings, they use these Four Directions in their movements and their incantations.  I have seen Satan demonstrate his great anger when Christians pray to the North, South, East, and West.  So, it is no small thing this Tetrapylon.  This is not the only place where this configuration is used in connection with Pagan Deity and Roman Authority.  Here are several others I found:

If that is just a remnant of one of the pillars, imagine the massives size of this thing!

Tetrapylon/Milion of Constantinople  Million Stone is considered to Million Stone was  the zero point used to calculate the distance of other cities on earth to the city of Constantinople The distance to any point in the world was measured from the Million Stone, and is the origin of the saying “all roads lead to Rome”.

The Million Monument was originally built as aTetrapylon. According to some historians, it was actually a temple built for Tike in Greek mythology and fortune goddess in Fortism, which is called Fortuna in Roman mythology. This goddess, which means “luck” in ancient Greek language, also gave directions to the fate of the cities. It was built in the 4th century AD and the structure survived the Otttoman Conquest in 1453 for about 50+ years, but what remains today is just the foundation  what once was a colossal building in the heart of Byzantine Constantinople. We’re chasing history now indeed!  Constantinople was the capital of the most powerful empire on Earth at the time so the Milion was much larger, more lavishly decorated back on those days  The Milion now is definitely a far cry from what it was before and travelers usually don’t notice it given that its surrounded by the glorious Hagia Sophia or the famous Basilica Cistern.

Do You See the Size of this THING?

Tetrapylon in Jerash/Ancient Gerasa, Jordan.  Garshu, Gerasa, Jerash: the Everchanging City of the Ancient World-  Jerash originated as an ancient Near Eastern village, called Garshu by its inhabitants. It later became the Greco-Roman city of Gerasa with planned and colonnaded streets, temples to Zeus and Artemis, and open-market places among other elements of Hellenistic and Roman culture. It ended its days as an Islamic city ruled by the caliphs and then the Mamluk sultans. Jerash has been an everchanging city living through many historical epochs and civilizations.


Now tell me, WHO NEEDS a Structure that TALL??

Tetrapylon at the Temple of Aphrodite – The Tetrapylon is the first ancient public building that we see on entry to the Aphrodisias archaeological site. This awe-inspiring structure is the grand gateway to the Temple of Aphrodite, where pilgrims come to worship the cult image of Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty, love, pleasure, and procreation.  Against the clear blue skies of Aphrodisias, the gateway is a stunning sight, but imagine what it was like when Aphrodisias was a living city and there were people milling about and passing through the gateway. To get an idea of its size, people only reach the top of the base of the columns. No matter how many times on sees structures like this, it never ceases to amaze us how such huge constructions take place without the aid of the heavy machinery that we have today. 

The Tetrapylon was built around A.D. 200 and the gateway connects the main Aphrodisias north-south street to a large forecourt in front of the Temple of Aphrodite. Tetrapylon (meaning four gateways) gets its name from the four sets of four Corinthian columns which make up the gateway. The front row of Corinthian columns with diagonal fluting face the north-south street. 

Tetrapylon Reconstructed

Although the marble blocks are mostly original, the gateway itself has been reconstructed, with a total rebuild of the structure completed in 1991. This reconstruction was made possible by the extraordinary preservation of the gateway, with about 85% of its original marble blocks surviving through the ages.

To carry out the reconstruction, the existing standing ruins were dismantled and new foundations were laid. The gateway was then carefully reassembled, using steel reinforcements in the columns and other structural sections, and adding new cast-concrete elements where necessary.

If you are visiting Aphrodisias, this is a symbolic place to start your visit as you will indeed be following in the footsteps of the ancient visitors to the sanctuary of Aphrodite.

Though Palmyra fought hard to maintain their own identity, as time passed they were blended more and more with the influences that surrounded them and the people that were drawn to their city to live and thrive.

Their god: 

Ba’al – The wide-spread and primitive Semitic root (“ba’al“) may be most nearly rendered in English by “possess.” The term “Ba’al,” therefore, which is usually explained as meaning “lord,” is properly “possessor” or “owner.  Though Ba’al was the primary Lord of Palmyra, the people had many gods. Due to the many different peoples who traveled to and from the city, it was necessary for the people to accept and embrace the many gods they travelers brought with them.

As a center for shared cult, then, Palmyra served the needs of a diverse population. Many migrated to the oasis from outlying settlements at varying distances and joined the indigenous community, while others, mostly Arabs, were drawn to the settlement as a refuge from the surrounding desert. No doubt their reasons for migration were as diverse as the cultural backgrounds of the migrants themselves. Moreover, by all appearances, each group brought its own gods, as the long list of deities of the Palmyrene pantheon attests. For example, Bel, Belti, Nabu, Nergal, and Nanai are of Babylonian origin; Baalshamin and Belhammon seem to be from Phoenicia; Ishtar and Atargatis are Aramaean; Shadrafa and Elqonera are probably Canaanite; and Arab deities include Shamash, Allat, Abgal, Manawat, and a host of others.12 Also popular were the protecting spirits of a particular place or people, referred to as individual Gad or genii (gny’).

The people of Palmyra were intimately connected to the city as a center for shared religious association, a place where they participated in the religious life,  festivals and feasts. The temple made it possible for the Palmyrenes from diverse backgrounds and different tribal affiliations to locate their religious observances into a one cult center.file:///C:/Users/heave/Downloads/umi-umd-1393%20(2).pdf

It was the worship of Ba’al that first introduced the concept of “High Places” and the fertility symbols of the Obelisk and the Asherah Pole, as well as the sacrifice of children and perverted sexual orgies.

The first record we have the of Temple of Ba’al dedication is 32 BCE.  Certainly, there is plenty of evidence of their worship of Ba’al long before that, the following inscription proves the worship of Ba’al dating back to 44 BCE.

In the month Tishri, the year 269 (October 44 B.C.E.), the priests of
Bel erected this statue to Goraimai son of Nebuzabad, of the tribe of
the bny khnbw[l].30


Due to the nature of the city and its commerce, the worship of Ba’al was spread far and wide.


Their Royalty:

King – Septimius Udaynath, Latinized as Odaenathus (Palmyrene:  (‘Dynt), spelled OḏainaṯArabicأذينة‎‎ (Udhaynah); c.220–267), was the founder king (Mlk) of the Palmyrene Kingdom centered at PalmyraSyria.In 263, Odaenathus assumed the title King of Kings of the East

Queen – Septimia Zenobia (PalmyreneFrom right to left, letters BETH, TAW, ZAYIN, BETH, YODH : 𐡡𐡶𐡦𐡡𐡩 (Btzby), pronounced Bat-Zabbaic. 240 – c. 274 AD) was a third-century queen of the Syria-based Palmyrene Empire. Many legends surround her ancestry; she was probably not a commoner and she married the ruler of the city, Odaenathus. Her husband became king in 260, elevating Palmyra to supreme power in the Near East by defeating the Sassanians  and stabilizing the Roman East. After Odaenathus’ assassination, Zenobia became the regent of her son Vaballathus and held de facto power throughout his reign.

In 270, Zenobia launched an invasion which brought most of the Roman East under her sway and culminated with the annexation of Egypt. By mid-271 her realm extended from Ancyra, central Anatolia, to southern Egypt, although she remained nominally subordinate to Rome. However, in reaction to Roman emperor Aurelian‘s campaign in 272, Zenobia declared her son emperor and assumed the title of empress (declaring Palmyra’s secession from Rome). The Romans were victorious after heavy fighting; the queen was besieged in her capital and captured by Aurelian, who exiled her to Rome where she spent the remainder of her life.

Zenobia was a cultured monarch and fostered an intellectual environment in her court, which was open to scholars and philosophers. She was tolerant toward her subjects and protected religious minorities. The queen maintained a stable administration which governed a multicultural multiethnic empire. Zenobia died after 274, and many tales have been recorded about her fate. Her rise and fall have inspired historians, artists, and novelists, and she is a national hero in Syria.  Wikepedia

(Some believe she may have played a role in her husband’s assassination.  She declared herself “Queen of Egypt” and claimed to be heir to Cleopatra. One of the cities she conquered was Petra)

A Lesson at the Temple of Baal 

Keith W Stump
The temple of Baal 

In ancient Palmyra, Baal was worshiped as Baal-Shamin, “Lord of the Heavens.” He was the equivalent of the Greek god Zeus. (The city also had a temple to Bel, patron god of Babylon.) 
   The temple of Baal in Palmyra was laid out during the time of Rome’s emperor Tiberius (A.D. 14 to 37), but actual construction did not occur until many decades later. It was built about 350 yards north of the city’s amphitheater. 
   In its heyday, Palmyra’s temple of Baal was a magnificent structure. Even today, archaeologists agree that the temple is one of the most attractive and best preserved of all the monuments of the city. As a center of the worship of Baal, it was renowned far and wide. 
   The temple has a portico of six columns. An inscription on one of the pillars states that the temple was built “to the honor of Baal Shamin, Lord of Heaven and God of Fertility and of Storms and Rains.” In front of the portico stands the altar (see photos). 
   The hidden inner part of the temple housed the image of the deity. This innermost sanctuary was open only to priests of Baal. One can mentally picture the priests attending to their various duties: burning incense, sacrificing at the altar, bowing in prayer before the shrine and teaching disciples the ways of the mystery religion. 
   The cult of Baal was extremely popular. Its rituals included animal sacrifices, “sacred” prostitution and licentious dancing.

 Symbol of false religion

Today, the temple of Baal lies abandoned and in ruins, as do temples of Baal throughout the Near East. No priests sacrifice on their altars, pray in their sanctuaries or instruct disciples. 
   But there is still a great lesson to be learned at the temple of Baal! 
   The temple of Baal at Palmyra symbolizes the ultimate fate of all false religion. This once-thriving temple, like the religion it served, today lies desolate and in ruins. Her antique splendor has faded with the centuries. Her pillars are eroded by the ravages of time. Her courtyards lie in disarray. 
   The ruins stand as mute testimony to the worthlessness and vanity of idol worship. 
   Like the desert surrounding the temple, the worship of Baal has proven barren and fruitless. Like ancient Babylon, birthplace of false religion, the temple has become the haunt of stray dogs and desert reptiles (compare Isaiah 13:19-22). Even the sign that today points the way to the temple is worn, scarred and defaced, like the stones of the temple itself. 
   Perhaps most significant, entrance to the inner shrine of the temple is today prevented by a strong door and large iron lock. One may look through the barred door, but may not enter. The way to false worship is obstructed, symbolizing the soon-coming time when the whole world will do what Israel did in the days of Samuel — they “put away the Baals… and served the Lord only” (I Sam. 7:4). 
   The locked temple of Baal also foreshadows the fate of Satan, the father of false religion, who himself will soon be bound by lock and key (Rev. 20:1-3). 
   The temple of Baal sits desolate, in the emptiness of the desert, a strong testimony to the utter futility of false religion.

New Temple under construction

The decaying temple of Baal stands in stark contrast to a different Temple, a Temple under construction even as you read these lines! 
   This new Temple will never decay and fall to ruins. It is being constructed of carefully chosen materials and engineered with unerring precision. 
   That Temple is God’s true Church. 
   God is today preparing a chosen people who will constitute the spiritual Temple to which Jesus Christ shall return in power and glory! This Temple — the Church of God — shall be more glorious than even the illustrious Temple of Solomon (Hag. 2:9). 
   The foundation for this Temple was laid millennia ago. Jesus Christ, Himself is the living Head and chief cornerstone — the main foundation. His apostles, along with the prophets of old, form the remainder of the foundation (Eph.2:19-20). 
   Each individual Christian, begotten with the Spirit of God, is a building block of this new Temple. A Christian’s body is, in itself, a temple of the Holy Spirit (I Cor. 3:16-17,6:19). Taken together, these building blocks members of the Church of God — form the superstructure of the spiritual Temple. 
   “You are God’s building,” the apostle Paul told the Corinthian church (I Cor. 3:9). In II Corinthians 6:16 he repeated, “You are the temple of the living God.” 
   In this new holy Temple, all parts will be “fitly framed together” (Eph. 2:21, Authorized Version) — properly joined and functioning together in harmony. There will be no structural weaknesses to ever threaten its collapse. Eternal pillars

   Moreover, in a special message to Christians of the end-time Philadelphia era of God’s Church, Jesus Christ declares, “He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God” (Rev. 3:12). These pillars will never crumble or decay.
Even now, in these latter days, God is completing the construction of His spiritual Temple.
In the days of Elijah, there was a small group of people “whose knees have not bowed to Baal” (I Kings 19:18Rom. 11:4). “Even so then, at this present time, there is a remnant according to the election of grace” (Rom. 11:5). These undefiled people — the people of God’s Church — are the stones with which God is building His Temple.
The gentiles of old sacrificed to demons (I Cor. 10:20). By contrast, Christians today must themselves be living sacrifices to the true God (Rom. 12:1).
If we sacrifice now for God’s great end-time Work, and overcome, we will very soon take our places as pillars in a Temple that will never waste away!
