"Baal Appears in NYC."

Tom's Journal.

Hi  Friends,
   When ever I try to post anything THESE DAYS, I have to hurdle a few impediments and road blocks because 'some one' doesn't like the truth that I print/ post !   But for true Christians,  that is just part of the 'territory' that we've been traversing for the past 1900 years since Christ walked the earth...   The preacher at church today told us that, 'if we give in to the 'Beast of this system' -- we might have peace for a short time,  but then we will be asked, or forced to give something else up of our God-given FREEDOM ! !  And STD --Satan the Devil has made some serious head way in America in the past 10 years !   Beware,  things will only get WORSE !   It will be that way until we are either dead, or Raptured.  

I got a weird phone call today from a lady, and thought she was playing mind games with me for a while, until I finally convinced her of my real identity.   She turned out to be the wife/ widow of a former Vietnam Vet, Helicopter gunner who served in the same Army Aviation outfit/ Company in Vietnam: 68-70, my 2nd tour.   We were best friends, but sometimes we disagreed and argued a little bit, and then he did about 5 years ago, and so it was a bitter sweet conversation.   We were all in D.C. at the same time and had a super great time !   Sometimes I think that we were both a little crazy in our younger years, but we felt "BLESSED" to still be alive, after Vietnam, and most of our working life, etc.   Well,  the nice lady asked if she could call back some time, and of course I said, 'yes.'   I sense that she is lonely and still hurting from the good man that she lost after spending so many good years with him.   In some ways, he was better and smarter than me !   I know that I could never take his place, and I hope he was 'right with the Lord.'  
     Yet, so many people get it wrong!  It's NOT about leading a so-called, "good life" that entitles a person to go to heaven !!!   It's all about having a solid relationship with Jesus Christ !   With Jesus as our ONLY Mediator [a go-between to get God's Grace], there is no other way that we can possible get to heaven, no matter "how good we,   or others think we are !"   So.... does that mean that we Christians can use that as an excuse to commit every nasty sin in the world?  Answer:  NO!   Ask  yourself:  'World a follower or imitator of Christ, look hard to do all those bad sins, on purpose ??   Shake your head:  NO.   True, all humans sin, and we are all sinners,  but Christians are FORGIVEN our sins, and we of course want to confess them every day or night, and try not to do the same thing over and over.  We will be finally PERFECT after we get to heaven.  
        Friends,  I don't have all the answers, and I continue to learn, even though I have zealously  studied the KJV Bible for over 40 years, and I wish I could read and write Hebrew and Greek.   But life is a long or short journey, and for most of us --- we are truly blessed if we find the One True God of the Bible before we die.   I just heard something today in the book of Jeramiah, that if a human being desires to learn about the true God, somehow, someway, God will get the Gospel to him, no matter where he lives !!   That is so good to know.  

But now,  just because America is doomed to destruction [no matter who gets elected.... sorry, guys],  individuals can still find God and be Saved !   God has not yet told we Christians to stop preaching and sharing the Gospel, so we still try to contact everyone we see and give them the Good News of the Kingdom... the Gospel, and God's mercy and love for all mankind.    Many people are still coming into the fold --- so don't abandon ship, yet, please.

Editor’s note: Jonathan Cahn is one of America’s best-known messianic rabbis and New York Times best-selling author of “The Harbinger,” which remained on that list for more than 100 weeks in 2012 and 2013. In 2014, his “The Mystery of the Shemitah,” also became a New York Times best-seller. His latest, “The Book of Mysteries,” was, once again, one of the best-sellers in its first week in release this month.
Another harbinger has appeared in the land – and this one in New York City.
In the last days of ancient Israel, warnings, prophetic signs and harbingers appeared in the land, foreshadowing the judgment to come. The nation ignored these harbingers and headed to destruction.
In “The Harbinger,” the mystery is revealed that those same harbingers and warnings of national judgment have now appeared on American soil. But in the ancient case, Israel ignored the warnings and plunged even deeper into apostasy, immorality, ungodliness and brazen defiance of God. America is following the exact same template of judgment, the same course and the same progression.
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.

What about America? If America is following in the footsteps of ancient Israel away from God and to judgment, could there be a link to Baal? Of course, no one in America would admit to worshiping Baal. But the truth is American culture is filled with other gods and idols. When a civilization turns away from God, it always ends up bringing in other gods in His place. We just don’t call them gods.
As much as America has driven God out of its life and waged war against His ways, as much as America has sacrificed millions of its unborn children, as much as it has called evil “good” and good “evil,” as much as it has celebrated sexual immorality, and as much as it has persecuted the righteous – it is following after the god Baal, animated by the spirit of Baal.
An ancient altar of Baal.

So could the sign of Baal actually appear on American soil?
The idea that anything linked to an ancient Canaanite god would be erected in America would seem unthinkable. But just as it was with the nine ancient harbingers of judgment, so it has now taken place – the Sign of Baal has manifested on American soil.
It took place on a rainy Monday afternoon, Sept. 19, 2016. It happened in the city of the harbingers of judgment – New York City. No one who erected it or who unveiled it had any idea what they were doing – just as with the harbingers – but they did it anyway.
One of the centers of Baal worship in ancient times was Palmyra, Syria. The city contained not one but two prominent temples to Baal. The Romans erected an arch there to lead to the Temple of Baal. So the worshipers of Baal would walk through the arch and approach the temple in which they would venerate their god. This arch that led to the Temple of Baal was reproduced down to the smallest detail and erected in New York City.
It was erected in the park outside City Hall. It sat covered in a giant sheet to keep it cloaked until the time of its unveiling. Seats were set up around the veiled arch so that leaders and dignitaries could watch.
Before the moment of unveiling, a live band began playing Middle Eastern music. As one listened to the drumbeat, one could imagine similar music being played as worshipers ascended the ancient Temple of Baal.
See Jonathan Cahn introduce the unveiling of the arch in New York:
A black slate of stone sat at the side of the arch reminding the people of the connection. On the slate was an image of an ancient temple with the words “Temple of Bel (Baal).”
This plate was on the ground near the arch.
This plate was on the ground near the arch.
Among the dignitaries and media gathered were a handful of God’s people, a man with a shirt bearing witness to Jesus, another carrying a cross with the inscription Jeremiah 1:5 and still others silently bearing witness.
And then the moment came: to the sound of the Middle Eastern instruments, and to the applause of those gathered, the giant sheet was pulled off of the object to reveal the ancient arch – looking very much the same as it would have to Baal’s ancient worshipers in Palmyra – only now it stood in a new land – America.
As I stared at the ancient object being set up in New York City, I was struck in the same way as I was when I saw the nine prophetic signs of “The Harbinger.” Since 9/11, America has not only not returned to God – it has rebelled against Him in an ever deepening, ever intensifying and ever accelerating apostasy. It is eerily following the judgment template of the harbingers and the footsteps of ancient Israel as it headed to destruction.
And now, against all odds, the sign of Baal has appeared on American soil, the sign of a nation that had once known God, having fallen away, the sign of the god of the harbingers, the sign of national apostasy, the sign of judgment.
When I stood on Capitol Hill, one year earlier, and spoke before leaders and members of Congress, I said this:
As Elijah stood on top of Mount Carmel and cried out to Israel in its hour of decision, in between two altars and two gods, his voice now cries out to America and says to us, “Choose you this day whom you will serve.” Seventy years ago, the chaplain of the United States Senate cried out in the same voice, and said to this nation, “If the Lord be God, then folllow Him! But if Baal, then follow him … and go to hell!”
As I watched the unveiling of the ancient monument in New York City, I feared the coming true of those words – an America now turning to Baal … and going to hell.
