A Gesture of Defiance

Image result for temple of bel   Temple of Baal

“For they have forsaken me  and have made this a place of foreign gods …. they have filled this place with the blood of the innocent. They have built the high places of Baal to burn their sons in the fire …so beware, the days are coming …I will make them fall by the sword of their enemies, at the hands of those who seek their lives …” Jeremiah 19:4-7

“The past is never really the past …. it is in fact, our future”  (my words).

Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. History twisting and turning upon itself in ways we often don’t expect – recoiling upon itself like a serpent sleeping in the sun.  A faintly beating pulse that continues to shape the present out of the past and back again.

The all-new Temple of Baal …. coming to a city near you.


In what has been termed “a gesture of defiance” the Institute of Digital Technology has teamed up with Harvard University, the University of Oxford and Dubai’s Museum of the Future to create a 50 foot replica of the entrance to the Temple of Baal that will be erected in Times Square sometime next month.

The Temple of Baal (as you may remember) is the 2,000  year old structure located in Palmyra, Syria that was destroyed by Isis last year. Considered a “cultural treasure” it will be replicated in Times Square next month as well Trafalgar Square in London and ultimately in a thousand different cities around the world.

Oh, and its also the place God hated for its practice of child sacrifice.

I don’t know about you, but this strikes me as a bit strange.

Sure its an ancient structure.  And no one is suggesting any one go about destroying ancient artifacts large or small ….. but some how ….. this just doesn’t sit right. It seems a bit over kill. Over the top. You know what I mean? The Temple of Baal …. of all things. And, why now?

There’s something else at work here and I think I know exactly what it is. And, I have a very strong hunch it has a whole lot less to do with defiance of Isis than it does defiance of God.

For the same spirit that called for the blood of children then …. calls for the blood of children now.  

#Hashtag Shout Out Your Abortion …….

all that’s lacking is a monument.


Because of sin, the past is also our future. Only through Jesus can we break free from the sin we find ourselves so entangled in. The tricks of the enemy are old. What he does is repackage them for a new generation. Don’t be fooled. Real freedom, real life is found in Jesus. Only he can set you free …. only he can give new life ….. the enemy calls for the blood of your children ….. but, God gave the life of his Son, for you …. make sure you know him today.

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6

Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus!  Cindy










  1. Hi Cindy,

    Perhaps you’d appreciate this message by Peter Marshall, Chaplain of Congress. It was delivered in 1945 I think.

    Live for the King!, it’ll make it easier to die for him.

  2. I too Cindy have watched in disbelief as As America the great has become the America the great anything evil.
    Something that has struck me About this temple of baal. Spelled backwards la(a)b= lab?
    I know a man, who will remain nameless, that claimed to work at the lab in Harvard Medical working with a cancer drug and he told me that when the results were not what was being looked for he was to “find” better results. In my findings the medical industry is little more than sorcery.
    What was revealed last year about planned parenthood’s practice of selling the body parts and almost every American has shrugged it off, is evidence of our advanced state of depravity.
    Every single American who has paid even just one dollar in taxes has contributed to the spilling of this innocent blood. It makes me ill to think about my own part in this.
    And then the people who revealed this info were brought up on charges.
    Welcome to Babylon.
