Beltane - Photo by Stefan SchaferIs it just a coincidence that reproductions of the 48-foot-tall arch that stood in front of the Temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria are going to be put up in Times Square in New York City and in Trafalgar Square in London exactly 13 days before Baal’s biggest day of the year?  In the occult world, 13 is the number of rebellion, and these arches are going to be put on display precisely 13 days prior to the major occult holiday of Beltane on May 1st.  In a previous article, I explained that the chief god of ancient Babylon named Marduk eventually came to be known as “Baal” or “Bel” which both mean “Lord”.  As worship of this ancient deity spread all over the globe, sometimes this language was retained, and this is definitely true when it comes to “Bel-tane” or “Baal-tein”.  Beltane can be translated as “Baal fire”, and even many Wiccans acknowledge that this festival has origins which can be traced all the way back to the Baal worship of the ancient Middle East.  For example, the following comes directly from the website of a Wiccan named Lady Bridget


La Baal Tinne, Beltane, Beltain, all are names for the ritual which was traditionally held on May 1st, also known as May Day. The astrological festival occurs when the Sun reaches 15 ° Taurus, which lately has been happening more towards May 4-6th. Either the traditional date or the astrological date can be used to determine when to hold your festival as both will have significant energies for the season.

And the season is Spring! The lusty month of May is called so for a reason! Watch the animals, they are “rutting” now, looking to attract mates to raise their families. Butterflies and insects are pollenating flowers all over, and trees are bursting into blossoms and new green growth. In spring, “the young man’s fancy turns to love..” and the young girls fancies turn to young men!

Beltane, named for the Celtic Sun God, Bel, or Bal, or Baal, also means Bale, to banish, as in the bale fires, which are lit on Beltane to cleanse and purify. Cattle were led between two fires to cleanse them, and I have heard theories that the Druids quite possibly may have put purifying herbs on the fires to physically help the process along, but there is no actual proof of this.

And here is another example that comes directly from wiccazone.net

Beltane is the second most important sabbath in the Witches’ calendar after Samhain. Again, it is an intercalary day when the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead is thin. But whereas Samhain is a time for greeting and celebrating those who have gone before, Beltane is a time when more mischievous spirits may take advantage. For this reason the results of divinations performed at Beltane should always be approached cautiously, for the Gods also enjoy a sense of humour! Similarly, be very careful of working Magic at this time, for the phrase ‘Be careful what you wish for’ is even more appropriate around Beltane. Many a Witch has found a wish being granted very literally and has received what they asked for as opposed to what they wanted.

This is the festival of the fire God Bel. Bel has been worshipped under many names in all parts of the world for thousands of years; Bel, Beli, Balar, Balor, Belenus, Baal, and Belial. Traditionally, Beltane would be the night on which the old hearth fires were extinguished and the new were kindled from the Bel fire. These fires were placed on the top of hills and produced a chain of beacons which ran across the land. Cattle would be driven between the fires and people would leap over them to ensure fertility for the coming season. In Britain, the tradition of hilltop fires has seen something of a revival lately, although not necessarily associated with Beltane. Fire beacons were lit at the passing of Princess Diana and to mark the Millennium celebrations.

Even the occultists understand that the purpose of Beltane is to honor Baal.

So isn’t it odd that these arches from the Temple of Baal are going up in New York and in London just in time for this high occult holy day?

Posted below is the Wiccan wheel of the year.  You can see that Beltane is opposite Samhain (Halloween) on the wheel, and it has experienced a tremendous resurgence in popularity in Europe in recent years.

Wheel Of The Year - Public Domain

In ancient times, Beltane celebrations involved lots of sex and lots of fire sacrifices.

Sometimes those fire sacrifices involved humans.  The following comes from Wicca expert Patti Wigington

Beltane kicks off the merry month of May, and has a long history. This fire festival is celebrated on May 1 with bonfires, Maypoles, dancing, and lots of good old fashioned sexual energy. The Celts honored the fertility of the gods with gifts and offerings, sometimes including animal or human sacrifice. Cattle were driven through the smoke of the balefires, and blessed with health and fertility for the coming year.

In particular, children were frequently the victims of these “Baal fires”.  In his 1929 book entitled Magick In Theory, Aleister Crowley explained why small children are often chosen for occult sacrifices…

“It was the theory of the ancient magicians that any living being is a storehouse of energy varying in quantity according to the size and health of the animal, and in quality according to its mental and moral character. At the death of this animal this energy is liberated suddenly. For the highest spiritual working one must accordingly choose that victim which contains the greatest and purest force. A male child of perfect innocence and high intelligence is the most satisfactory and suitable victim.”

In addition to fire sacrifices, wild sexual behavior is also associated with Beltane.

Here is more from Wicca expert Patti Wigington

The Beltane holiday is the time when, in some traditions, the male energy of the god is at its most potent.

He is often portrayed with a large and erect phallus, and other symbols of his fertility include antlers, sticks, acorns, and seeds. You can include any of these on your altar. Consider adding a small Maypole centerpiece — there are few things more phallic than a pole sticking up out of the ground!

In addition to the lusty attributes of the god, the fertile womb of the goddess is honored at Beltane as well. She is the earth, warm and inviting, waiting for seeds to grow within her. Add a goddess symbol, such as a statue, cauldron, cup, or other feminine items. Any circular item, such as a wreath or ring, can be used to represent the goddess as well.

At Beltane celebrations in Europe this year, it will once again be common to see people painted up and parading around naked.  This mirrors what happened in ancient times when huge bisexual orgies would take place around the altars of Baal.

It is also important to note that May 1st is more commonly known as “May Day” around the world.  It is a major holiday for communists and socialists, and it is also the date on which the Bavarian Illuminati was formed in 1776.

Leading up to Beltane is a 13 day period of time that also appears to have special occult significance.  This is something that I wrote about the other day, but I wanted to explore this a bit more.

Admittedly, there are not a lot of mainstream sources that discuss this 13 day period just prior to Beltane, and much of the information on the Internet appears to be speculation.

But there are some authors that have written about this.  This first example is an excerpt from a book entitled The Most Dangerous Book in the World: 9/11 as Mass Ritual by S.K. Bain…

In case you were wondering, April 19 is a Satanic holy-day, requiring sacrifice by fire, most preferably involving the sacrifice of children, and, indeed, multiple children perished in both Waco (more than 20) and Oklahoma City (19 under the age of 6).

And this next example is an excerpt from a book entitled Phoenix Rising: The Rise and Fall of the American Republic by Donald G. Lett Jr….

In the occult April 19th begins the second highest holy day in the occult called the Beltane, which is a 13 day period which ends on May 1st. The first day of the Beltane is the most important day for human sacrifice. Even the ancient Romans honored April the 19th as the conclusion to their holiday Cerealia, the primary festival of Ceres that was accompanied by “Games of Ceres” in the Circus Maximus.

Lett is definitely correct about the significance of April 19th to the Romans.

According to Wikipedia, it was customary to sacrifice a pregnant cow on that day…

In ancient Roman religion, the Fordicidia was a festival of fertility, held April 15, that pertained to farming and animal husbandry. It involved the sacrifice of a pregnant cow to Tellus, the ancient Roman goddess of the Earth, in proximity to the festival of Ceres (Cerealia) on April 19.

All over the Internet, there are reports that the 13 day period that begins on April 19th and that culminates with May 1st is known as “the blood sacrifice to the Beast”.  Many of these reports seem to have gotten their material from an article that was originally posted on the highly respected website cuttingedge.org

Did you know that April 19 is a most important date every year in the Satanic Calendar of High Holy Days? April 19 begins a 13-day period of blood sacrifice to the Beast, culminating on May 1!

And there is a book from 1995 entitled Circle of Intrigue that also made this claim…

“According to the Satanic Calendar of High Holy Days, April 19 inaugurates a period of blood sacrifice to the Beast, culminating in the Grand Climax on May 1st each year. May 1st (May Day), of course, is celebrated in Red Square (note the color, red) in Moscow each year by a huge parade and spectacle. It was also on May 1, 1776 in Bavaria that Adam Weishaupt founded the Order of the Illuminati, and it was May 1st when the ancient Druids honored their great Sun God and Goddess with an uninhibited festival complete with initiations, sex orgies, drunken revelry, and human sacrifice.”

Joseph Spickard is another respected author that has also written about this.

The following is an excerpt from an excellent article that was posted on his website

Sacrifice by fire is required by pagan, occult, and satanic elements on April 19. An emphasis on the sacrificial victims who are children or youth is made. “Passing through the fire” to the fire god, Molech, in the Old Testament of the Bible, described children going through the ritual of fire worship and sacrifice. In this regard, the arms of the god Molech were operated mechanically beyond a veil or curtain in the back of the image by its priests. When a victim was selected or chosen from among those “passing through the fire,” the child was placed on the supporting Molech outstretched hands, pulled over a pit of flame, and then the hands were shifted mechanically sideways, causing the child to fall and be consumed into the very hot pit furnace below.

The child’s screams were muffled by the very low bass sound of drums and music instruments and the corresponding high pitch of tambourines and other music utensils to drown out its cries. This bass sound was exceeding low. This was to be called later, the “Devil’s chord.”

A Molech site was located just outside of Jerusalem during the period of the Kings and Minor Prophets. The Valley of Hinnom, or in Greek called Gehenna, was located on the south and southwest side of the city. Gehenna was later translated as the popular rendition or place, of hell fire. For the hundreds and hundreds of children, if not thousands, that were immolated… this was an apt description. The Valley of Hinnom, or Gehenna, became a garbage dump during the time of Christ which continued to emit flame and fire in burning refuse, dead bodies of animals and common criminals, and offal.

So what are we to make of all of this?

It is hard to say.

What we do know is that a lot of strange events have happened on or around April 19th.  The following list comes from Advent of Deception

  • April 19, 1904—The Great Fire of Toronto.
  • April 18, 1906—The San Francisco Earthquake Fire.
  • April 19, 1943—After trapping the last Jewish Resistance Fighters in a storm drain in Warsaw, and holding them for several days, Nazi Storm Troopers began to pour fire into each end of the storm drain, using flame-throwers. They continued pouring the fire into the drain until all fighters were dead. Blood sacrifice brought about by a fiery conflagration.
  • April 20, 1985—20 April 1985 – ATF raid on The Covenant, The Sword, and the Arm of the Lord compound in northern Arkansas.
  • April 19, 1993—50 years later after of the 1943 Warsaw, to the day, government troops, tanks, and other military equipment stormed the compound of David Koresh and his followers at Waco, Texas. Certainly, this operation fulfilled the basic requirements for a human sacrifice: trauma, fire, and young sacrificial victims.
  • April 19, 1995—Oklahoma City bombing—Once again fire and death on this day.
  • April 20, 1999—The Columbine High School Massacre.
  • April 19, 2005—Joseph Alois Ratzinger elected as Pope Benedict XVI.
  • April 20, 2007—Johnson Space Center shooting and incident of hostages in Building 44.
  • April 19, 2010—In Canada over 400 hundred of straw bales caught on fire and blazed out of control.
  • April 19, 2010—Iceland’s Volcanic Ash Grounds all Airlines in Northern Europe while NATO conducts the largest military exercise of the Year.
  • April 20, 2010—The Gulf Oil Fire.
  • April 20—The Birthday of Adolf Hitler.

In the end, the significance of April 19th is certainly up for debate, but nobody can question the significance of May 1st.  Even occultists acknowledge that Beltane is a festival that honors the ancient Middle Eastern god “Bel” or “Baal”, and today it is celebrated with fire and sex just like it was back then.

And on this “May Day“, millions of children around the globe will once again dance around huge “Maypoles” without even understanding what they originally represented.

Once your eyes are opened, it is easy to see traces of the ancient Babylonian religious system all around us.  Of course this is precisely what we should expect if we have indeed moved into the period of time that the Bible refers to as the last days.  As society continues to reject the God of the Bible, people will increasingly turn to false religion to fill the spiritual void that they feel.

Personally, I find it exceedingly suspicious that reproductions of the 48-foot-tall arch that stood in front of the Temple of Baal in Palmyra, Syria are going to be put up in Times Square in New York City and in Trafalgar Square in London just before Baal’s biggest day of the year.

    I wonder if this has anything to do with Bel-Air in Southern California, a very wealthy community.
    Any ideas?

  • Batya Ferrer

    Nothing is new under the sun now for Moshiach!

  • Matthew

    Just another major sign that this present evil world is on the cusp of severe judgment from God and that His Son is soon to return for His bride.

    • Jim Davis

      Please define “soon”. I’ve been hearing what you said since the 70s. And it’s actually been said for millennia.

      • Simon

        Soon: slower than Christians would like, way faster than atheists will ever anticipate.

        But if you would like reasoning that identifies why Christians these days say “soon” a lot, here’s a brief list of things unique to the last century or so:
        – electricity
        – cars
        – global telecommunications
        – the Internet
        – genetic engineering
        – space travel
        – nuclear energy and weapons
        – massively exponential population growth
        – Israel existing as a nation after not existing for almost 2000 years

        Accept Jesus or reject him but we live in a genertation that is in a myriad ways distinct to every previous generation, one in which a whole lot of biblical prophecies about the nations of the world turning against Israel could actually happen now that it exists once again after a pretty lengthy absence. That and the fact that we see all sorts of evils filling the world, evils on a scale that most previous generations would never have conceived.

        The world we are living in today fits very closely with what the Bible describes broadly across its books – in a way that previous generations simply did not.

        Take it or leave it but our reasoning is entirely consistent with our worldview, more so than spending your free time on the comments section of a website run by and frequented by people whose worldview you absolutely reject.

        • Matthew

          Well put and I totally agree with your comment. God bless!

      • Matthew

        Let my put it this way, on top of what is currently happening in the world right now(all signs converging now), just as the Word of God said it would prior to His Son returning, we are much much closer than we were 46 years ago.

  • desert nudist

    And I think the Nazi’s were funded by the same central bankers as the political system in the US.

  • VigilanteCaregiver

    Just an FYI: most of what is known of ancient cultures, religious rites, and daily life is lost to time. Most of the practical things are easy to discern. The specifics, for most cultures and religions, are gone: not everyone can be like the Ancient Egyptians – carving rituals and scripts into tomb walls.

    The Druidic sects lost their astronomy books to the Roman conquests – the majority of their history and rituals were passed down verbally. Almost everyone else suffered the same fate from successive conquests, and corruption of time and social pressures. Only Ancient Israeli texts survived mostly intact, but still absorbed copy and human errors into it.

    Even if these Leftist usurpers wanted to revive the ancient’s occult religions, it’s their own version.

    And what really get’s me is atheist groups are in with this. The occult, anciently, had numerous gods. I thought atheists didn’t go for that? Guess they’re not really atheist: they’re really just Anti-Jew and Anti-Christian, or Anti-Christ… a large group of anti-Christ’s? Well, there’s Isaiah’s prophesy fulfilled.

    • Jim Davis

      Or maybe they are European people who want to go back to their native pre-Abrahamic religions instead of following the Abrahamic ones foisted upon them by devious forces?

    • Gay Veteran

      got any PROOF that atheist groups “are in with this”?

  • Jim Davis

    I see we’re going back to full retard on this site.

  • Jim Davis

    Samhain is the real party and a good band too!

    • Mistanick

      No Jim Davis, the devil is not sweet nor is the band you like. Just so everyone knows where Jim Davis (I double that is your real name) comes from, these are lyrics from the band he likes so much:

      “When they pull out her tongue

      Pull off her face, pluck out her eyes

      Well, the blood runs cold for

      When it drips from the mouth

      Be forewarned, be prepared

      For a grizzly bloodfeast”

      Jim, your soul is damned to hell if you continue on your path.

      • Jim Davis

        Eternal damnation for liking a band? That seems a bit harsh. Although it may be a just punishment for liking the Back Street Boys or Justin Bieber.

        • Mistanick

          Jim, much of rock music, including and especially music that specifically worships the devil, places the listener under the influence of satan. The music you put into your head must of necessity invade your conscience, heart, your outlook on life, how you see things, how you respond to things. To be a Christian is to be or to strive to be like Christ. If you care about your soul, you will run from that which is evil and do not look back.

        • Wallace B…

          Most religious people say unfounded nonsense and demonize pretty much anything they do not agree with, that’s how fundamentalism and extremism arises….

  • Jim Davis

    And April 20 is George Takei’s birthday!

    Another sign of the apocalypse!

    Oh, myyyy!

    • Gay Veteran

      ROFLOL, now don’t upset the bible thumpers who have their knickers in a knot

      • James Staten

        well when I saw George Takei’s Birthday…I immediately thought of you

    • MaxRockatansky33

      A Japanese Star trek actor and LGBT activist. This is an real apocalypse for corner preachers.

  • Gay Veteran

    jeez, why don’t you list all the bad things that happened on march 19 throughout history, or February 19, or January 19, etc.

    • James Staten

  • Mistanick

    Those who mock the influence of Baal worship and its evil on the land should first research the historical nature of Baal and its alignment with Islam’s false god of Allah. They are one in the same.

    We simply cannot ask God to bless America then allow an evil parade to consume the weak.

    Mockers, satan comes in various forms, but one thing is true. satan hates you and everyone you love AND WANTS TO DRAG YOU TO HELL with him.

    • knifemare69

      “Those who mock the influence of Baal worship and its evil on the land should first research the historical nature of Baal and its alignment with Islam’s false god of Allah. They are one in the same.”

      Soooo when Muslim pilgrims throw stones at obelisk effigies in the Hajj that symbolize ‘the devil’ to their believers, they are somehow worshiping the same god they are insulting? Because in case you didn’t read the article, cultures with large phallic shrines (London, Rome, Washington DC) are the ones that worship Baal. Explain your BS.

      • Mistanick

        Knife, take your argument out of your own context. Go back into history to see the source of satan and and his deceptive evil. Two sides here. Good and evil. You can try to justify this or that, but still two sides. Note, I did not say two Gods, but two sides. You choose whom you will worship Knife.

        I will say that the devil is the master of confusion and deceit. he can move those who are deceived to believe this or that is evil, thereby placing himself at the head of those deceived. Do you need any examples of mere men who have done just that?

        Don’t try to justify evil for what it truly is. Cast your eyes on the one who died on the cross for your soul. There is truth.

  • Preacher62

    Just another distraction to hide the truth. Jesus said if you are not for me you are against me and if you are not gathering with me you are scattering abroad. There is no need for physical gateways as the gateways for evil to enter this world already lay in the hearts of men. How many will fall for this distraction and determine that since they are not Baal worshippers then they have no need to fear? If you are not following Jesus Christ as Lord of all then you already belong to Satan. Repent and believe the Gospel and you can be saved. God Bless

    Thank you!

  • David Hapenney

    Here is a word from the Bible that directly applies (see the well-researched The Unseen Realm): …6 I said, “You are gods, And all of you are sons of the Most High. 7″Nevertheless you will die like men And fall like any one of the princes.” 8 Arise, O God, judge the earth! For it is You who possesses all the nations. The corrupt hosts of heaven know their time is short. Jesus the Messiah is dispossessing the gods of this world.

    Happy Beltane everybody!

  • AtomicMetroid

    where’s the proof of that bogus claim???

    • MaxRockatansky33

      It’s not a bogus. It’s called “pay attention during History class”. If you have a good History professor of course.

      • AtomicMetroid

        Oh you believe that crap in history books??? oh my….

    • Birdie

      What Max states is historical.

      • AtomicMetroid

        The holohoax is a proven scam. But you go on believing those “official stories”.
        I bet you think that muslims did 911 too amirite

  • Jimmy Yost

    It’s as if the human race has come full circle now just before the end. History proves that Baal worship never benefited those who tried it. People who worship Baal are in effect retarded spiritually. In the Bible the Lord said: “… all they that hate me love death.” (Proverbs 8:36). There are physical retards, mental retards, and spiritual retards. Spiritual retards seem to have lost their sense of self-preservation.
