Triumphal Arch of Palmyra, Syria

Tadmor - Palmyra
And Solomon built Tadmor in the wilderness,
and all the store cities, which he built in Hamath.

2 Chronicles 8:4

Palmyra is an ancient city of central Syria, located in an oasis 130 miles (210 km) NE of Damascus.
Once dubbed the "Bride of the Desert," Palmyra was a vital stop for caravans crossing the Syrian desert. Palmyra was mentioned in the Old Testament as being fortified by Solomon and it flourished in Roman times.

The Greek name for the city, Palmyra is a translation of its original Aramaic name, Tadmor, which means 'palm tree'.  Tadmor is today the name of a small city next to the ruins, heavily dependent on tourism.  Tadmor is mentioned in the Bible (2 Chronicles 8:4) as a desert city that was fortified by King Solomon.

Tadmor or Tammor: a city built by Solomon 
1 Kings 9:18 - And Baalath, and Tadmor in the wilderness, in the land,
2 Chronicles 8:4 - And he built Tadmor in the wilderness,
and all the store cities, which he built in Hamath.

Ancient Palmyra appears in the Old Testament as ‘Tadmor’, from the Semitic word Tamar meaning ‘palm-tree’. King Solomon, in the tenth century BC, established an outpost at ‘Tadmor in the wilderness’, but it was soon reclaimed by locals. By the third century BC, Palmyrenes spoke a Semitic dialect related to Arabic and Hebrew, though the earliest Palmyrene inscriptions used Greek terminology.   

The history of Palmyra is closely linked to the development of the Silk Road in this region and to the city’s strategic placement between the major powers of the early Middle Ages. A settlement called Tadmor is mentioned as early as the eighteenth century BC, and by the first century AD, Palmyra had become a base for traders crossing the desert.

The Monumental Arch, also called the Arch of Triumph (Arabic: قوس النصر‎‎) or the Arch of Septimius Severus, was a Roman ornamental archway in Palmyra, Syria. It was built in the 3rd century during the reign of emperor Septimius Severus.

The Monumental Arch was built sometime during the reign of emperor Septimius Severus, which lasted from 193 to 211 AD; it linked the main street of the Colonnade and the Temple of Bel.[1]  The arch was meant to integrate the southern and central parts of the Colonnade as its location marks a change of 30° in the orientation of the street.[2]
According to some sources, the structure was built as a triumphal arch to commemorate the Romans' victories over the Parthians.

The Palmyrene Empire (270–273), a splinter state centered at Palmyra, broke away from the Roman Empire during the Crisis of the Third Century. It encompassed the Roman provinces of Syria PalaestinaArabia PetraeaEgypt and large parts of Asia Minor.

Arch of Palmyra destroyed by Isis is reborn in Arona, homage to archaeologist al-Asaad
ARONA (NOVARA), 29 APRIL - The Arch of Palmyra, symbol of the UNESCO-protected archaeological site in Syria destroyed by ISIS, relives for three months in Arona, in Piazza San Graziano, in front of the archaeological museum named after Khaled al- Asaad, the archaeologist-keeper of the site barbarously killed in August 2015 by Islamic terrorists.
At the presentation of the initiative were the two sons of Asaad, Waled and Omar.

The museum in Arona named after Khaled al Asaad, the beheaded archaeologist from ISIS
ARONA - The barbaric killing of Khaled al Asaad had moved the world on 18 August a year ago,
the conservator of the archaeological site of Palmyra, in Syria, beheaded by the fanatics of Isis at that World Heritage Site that for over 50 had kept and studied for future generations. That place, which is the memory of all the men and women of this planet, the professor defended him with his own blood.
   On the basis of that example, the City Council of Arona had decided, a few days after the 25 August 2015, to propose the title of the Civic Archaeological Museum of the City to Professor Asaad, requesting the appropriate derogation from the Prefecture of Novara. Once the necessary permits have been obtained, the title will be called on September 11th (date not random).
   “Asaad Khaled (1932-2015), direttore del museo e del sito archeologico della città di Palmira, venne catturato e ucciso atrocemente da un gruppo jihadista in quanto si rifiutò di fornire informazioni su dove fossero nascoste le antiche opere d’arte. La scelta dell’intitolazione del Civico Museo Archeologico di Arona è ricaduta sul Professore per l’altissimo valore etico della sua intera esistenza e l’estrema drammaticità della sua morte quando, sacrificando la propria vita in nome dei più alti ideali di altruismo e di rispetto per la cultura e la tradizione, ha offerto al mondo intero un luminosissimo esempio di coraggio, amore per la conoscenza e per il prossimo e fedeltà estrema alla propria missione”, si legge nella nota dell’amministrazione.
   The naming will take place on Sunday 11 September at 12.00, in conjunction with the final day of the Festival "Il Teatro sull'Acqua", an important cultural moment for the City of Arona.

New World Order Forming Under Pagan Temple of Ba’al Arch?
A replica of a Roman arch that once stood near the pagan Temple of Ba’al was erected for the World Government Summit in Dubai this week, creating a scene that one rabbi claims symbolizes the dangerous fusion of Ishmael and Edom against Israel.
This connection between Dubai and Rome is showing that Edom never ended. It just put on a different mask.”

The Arch is now going to Florence to prosper, not to Arona just yet.

Excellent recap and explanation of events in light of scripture. 

As the deer pants for the water brooks,
So pants my soul for You, O God. 
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.

The Mystery Behind The Arch of Baal
Published on Jul 2, 2017 -
The Arch of Baal why has its replica appeared in the US, UK and Italy? It may very well be a sign to the World that Rome has conquered The UK the United States and the European Union, that combined these make up the fourth Kingdom of Daniel chapter 7. Teeth of Iron used to destroy the Nations with their missiles and of course ISIS their priestly army that offered live sacrifices to their god Baal.
See links in description.
Reviewed: Dan. 11, Ps. 83, Jer. 19 
One rabbi, a member of the nascent Sanhedrin attempting to recreate the ancient Jewish legal body, sees dire implications in the repeated use of the arch. Rabbi Daniel Assur told Breaking Israel News the arch is a harbinger of the “New World Order.” He declared the arch’s repeated appearances at prominent locations indicate “a pattern moving toward a specific goal – Messiah.”
The rabbi believes the globalist movement isn’t secular or atheist but, instead, undergirded by pagan spirituality.
He warned that the global leaders are meddling with dark forces.

WHOA!!!  UNVEILING OF "THE END" ON 9TH OF AV!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

July 30, 2020 - The dystopian artwork by British artist Heather Phillipson, titled  ”THE END” was unveiled Thursday on Trafalgar Square’s Fourth Plinth in London after being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemicIt is the 13th Fourth Plinth commission since the programme began in 1998, it is also the tallest to date, measuring 9.4m and weighing 9 tonnes, and follows on from The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist (recreation of a protective deity destroyed by Islamic State in Iraq) by Michael Rakowitz. Both artists were selected in 2017. "Beauty will save the world — and ugliness will ruin it."
The End will stay in place until spring 2022.

Sunday, 9 August - Five Extinction Rebellion (XR) protesters have been arrested after pouring fake blood over the steps of Trafalgar Square in protest against the deaths of indigenous people in Brazil. Marking International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, the activists could be seen lying ‘dead’ on the ground while others held up banners that read ‘genocide [equals] ecocide’ and ‘indigenous emergency’. The group, which also included protesters from HS2 Rebellion, the Articulation of Indigenous Peoples of Brazil (APIB) and the Internationalist Solidarity Network, also turned the water in the fountains red and luminous green for the demonstration.
The protest comes just days after Animal Rebellion, a sister group of XR, turned the water in the Trafalgar Square fountains red to represent the ‘blood on the government’s hands’.

Arona, Italy (Amona is the Israeli settlement near Shiloh...The similarity is interesting!) Not sure why Arona was selected. We'll keep alert of quakes! I added a few more links. Blessings ;-)
