A reconstruction of pagan idol Molech who demanded child sacrifice was stationed at the entrance of Rome’s Colosseum as part of a secular historical exhibition.
When we think of things mentioned in the Old Testament, like scripture regarding the pagan god of child sacrifice Molech, we have a tendency to think of it in the ancient, dusty and distant past. Yet, Molech continues to be part of the end times landscape here in the 21st century. In fact, a massive statue of Molech was erected and place in front of the Roman Colosseum of all places, as part of an exhibit on Carthage. You remember the Colosseum, it’s that place where the Roman government, which morphed into the Roman Catholic Church around 325 AD, slaughtered Bible believing Christians and fed them to the lions. Ah Rome, good times.
“And they have turned unto me the back, and not the face: though I taught them, rising up early and teaching them, yet they have not hearkened to receive instruction. But they set their abominations in the house, which is called by my name, to defile it. And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.” Jeremiah 32:33-35 (KJV)
A mere 9 days after Molech was stationed outside the entrance to the Roman Colosseum, the leader of the Roman Catholic Church was conducting a pagan worship service dedicated to Pachamama, the Mother Earth goddess. In my mind, the two events are inextricably intertwined. When Molech is back on the throne in Rome and the Roman pope is blessing pagan idols at the Vatican, you know the end of all things is close at hand. Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines now boarding…
Statue of ancient God Of Child Sacrifice Molech Put On Display In Rome
FROM LIFE SITE NEWS: The statue of Molech, worshipped by both the Canaanites and the Phoenicians, is part of an exhibit dedicated to Ancient Rome’s once-great rival, the city of Carthage. The large-scale exhibition, titled Carthago: The immortal myth, runs until March 29, 2020.
“A reconstruction of the terrible deity Molech, linked to Phoenician and Carthaginian religions and featured in the 1914 film Cabiria (directed by Giovanni Pastore and written by Gabriele D’Annunzio) will be stationed at the entrance to the Colosseum to welcome visitors to the exhibition,” stated a press release about the exhibit.
“We were so excited the day we decided to go to the Colosseum,” Alexandra Clark told LifeSiteNews via email. She and her sister Tiffany were looking forward to visiting the site of Christian martyrdom.
“But the moment we got there the sight that greeted us was horrifying! Standing guard over the entrance was the colossal pagan statue of Molech. It was placed in that prime spot so that everyone that entered into the Colosseum had to pass it,” she continued.
The statue of Moloch was erected nine days prior to the opening of the Amazon Synod, which was plagued with controversy from the beginning after a ceremony in the Vatican Gardens involving the pagan goddess “Pachamama” was held in the presence of Pope Francis and top-ranking prelates. In the ceremony, participants prostrated themselves before wooden statuettes of the fertility goddess indigenous to South America. The statuettes were kept as part of an exhibit in the Church of Santa Maria in Traspontina until they were thrown into the Tiber by Austrian Catholic Alexander Tschugguel on Oct. 21. Afterward, one copy of the mass-produced figures was kept in the church.
The image of Molech is modeled on a representation of the child-devouring demon found in the 1914 Italian silent film Cabiria. In the film the idol of Molech, set up in a Punic temple, has a giant bronze furnace in his chest, into which hundreds of children are thrown. Cabiria, the heroine of the film, is threatened with this fiery fate.
The film’s depiction of the idol has a historical basis. Three ancient Greek historians all attest that it was customary in Carthage to burn children alive as offerings to the deity, whom they called Baal and Cronus or Saturn, the Roman god who, according to myth, ate his own children lest they supplant him. Moloch is also mentioned several times in the Book of Leviticus. Hebrew parents are forbidden to sacrifice their children to the god. READ MORE
Cabiria – The Temple Of Molech
Cabiria is one of the most well-known and influential of these films. Allegedly D.W. Griffith was so impressed by Cabiria that he decided to turn Intolerance (1916) into a epic spectacle. Gabriele D’Annunzio, famed Italian author and WWI hero, wrote the intertitles for this film. This sequence, the temple of Molech, is one of the most famous sequences in the film. It was revered for its elaborate production design and cast of thousands
