Know that you are loved

New Moon over Ojai


Know that you are loved





by Don Bradley



Forward

This may help others, as it has helped me.

Jeremiah 24:7
 
And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am YHVH: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart.



My relationship with our Father, the Creator and God of all this reality of our existence and ever will be, Yahuah, and his Son, Yeshua, is akin to that of a most loving dog that ever was. And not as some dumb animal as the snarkies will instantly declare. When I wake up, my first thoughts are of Him, who is part of myself, and also, is my family, and also my guide, and also Parents, and also my KING. For me, that is just a poor illustration of how to explain this simple, yet complex, reality of which is both a concept, beingness, and understanding, but also a complete reality beyond any doubt. Dad and my Savior are all that and much, much more.



When I think or speak to Dad, which is how I refer to our Creator to others (and so think within my own consciousness and heart) it is always with a child like loving sweetness, as I also, around the clock and every living second, have His presence in my heart, mind, being, and soul. It is something separate but also united with the dufus that is Don. It is both realities at once. When I think of Him, which is constantly, I get this gentle electric shock from the top of my head down through my spine. When I do a formal, “Dear Dad, or Hey Dad” communication as what one calls a “prayer,” like one might write a letter, I see these floating stars, quite bright and beautiful all around me, slowly drifting downward, like falling snow. This also happens when I sneeze, and I don't know why that is.



I tell you all this to set up what is coming next, so you get a sense of this amazing relationship He gave me when I was 16 years old, during a church service in Memphis Tenn, that I wasn't even interested in going to—but that's a story for another day, and frankly, who cares. A relationship that He has demonstrated was always more than just faith, but actual physical plane events, by the thousands, that have no material explanation in the material world of evolution, number, weight, and measure. My spiritual life is quite private and precious to me, and I learned a long time ago to keep it that way. To share my daily was to invite hatred, resentment, and scorn. And, very often, open laughter in my face.



Whenever I express just a fraction of what my daily life is about, there are always the deniers, the doubters, the scorners, and snarky folks who have some kind of useless and weak pop psychology that explains that I am just a delusional fool living in some kind of self composed fantasy life. Because I always test all things, especially my own perceptions of reality, to make sure that reality is real, three weeks ago, upon rising, I went into my private chambers with Dad and prayed the following.



“Hey Dad? I have lived all these years with not only an amazing existence of the paranormal, the fantastic, the miraculous, and the divine—as you have given to me, I must know the truth of things. For not only do I love you dearly, but have dedicated my entire life to finding that straight path that leads to a closeness to you. As you know.



But what if this is all in my mind? What if what the other Christians—like the ones on the internet who have all turned their back on me, and call me crazy, who declare that such a reality is total bullshit, and that REAL Christianity is simply a thing of faith and anything deeper, closer, filled with eyes that see, a heart that knows, and a consciousness that perceives, is really just me projecting some weird, wishful fantasy reality upon myself and YOU. Which means I have been living a lie and that all these experiences are of my own fantastical creation. But how to explain the witnesses that see these things around me, too? Or the thousands of photographs that prove what I am experiencing is not just in my mind, but real? Am I delusional as well as under demonic blather? Then what about all that work exposing the demonic, the hundreds of satanic altars I destroyed over all the states, and exposing their darkest secrets? Is this all just some delusional plan of my own making and not your guidance, as you have guided with so many miracles that frankly, have kept me alive?



But beyond the blessings, as I see them, of these super dimensional experiences, my greatest concern is that I am somehow projecting upon YOU, my delusional fiction. That I have done this, believing what we have together is real, is more than I can stand. It would mean, that all these decades, my adoring love for you and my Savior Yeshua and what I have experienced, with 2 or more witnesses that always seemed to be around to confirm I wasn't just under some kind of psychotic break with reality, as a terrible fantasy that you have had to put up with.

That I have ever brought anything but the truth of myself before your feet, or even the possibility of that, is just more than I can bear. My shame is too much, if it is true, that this relationship and the mystical realm of seeing dimensionally as you've allowed me to have, is really just some kind of huge schizophrenic nonsense as others say it is. And you know what they are saying about me.



Dad, when I even tell others about what we have and show them the pics of your divine reality that are even just a fraction of that, they all roll their eyes, start patronizing me with snarky smirks, and turn their backs on me. And many of them are big guys on the internet and have written many books about the spiritual Holy Word, though it seems mostly from the level of the mundane, the physical and nothing to really do with the world of spirit.



What if it is even worse, what if, as so many claim, I am possessed which is what most of the “Christians” say about the articles I write, the proof I provide, and the witnesses I say exist because as you know, THEY DO EXIST and can be examined. Though no one seems to want to go there.



So, here is my request. If I am delusional as stated, reveal it to me, in such a way, that only I will know and understand your answer. If our close and loving relationship, which you add to with all these gifts of seeing the world of spirit, and the many other gifts you have provided, that most do not know about, as instructed, then show me that too.



I must know the truth, Dad. If I am deluded or under some kind of satanic spell, I beg you, reveal this to me so I can, with your help, fix my life. A life lived because of the love you have given as well as all this other amazing things I have always known were of you. For you always signed your work, even with me.



But...but...if I am wrong on this and my mind is just a mess of wishful junk, please oh please, answer this prayer and show me the truth of things.



Is our loving relationship real with all you give over or has it all just been me, and my life a waste.



I beg you. Please. Amen.”





Then I went about the day. It was the sabbath 3 weeks ago, and my sons were all here for BBQ and a visit and I was very busy being the attentive, joyful dad happy to have his boys about for chats, food, and fellowship.



About 3:00pm, we were all outside having lunch on the patio and Mike, our black and white cat, came up to Nathan, jumped up into his arms and started purring so loud that it stopped all conversation. Nathan began holding him in his arms, as you would a new born, and Mikey just looked up into his eyes with such adoration and love, that all 7 of us, stopped what we were doing and were completely captivated by the symbiotic exchange. The expression of love between them was of such a degree, that one of son Nick's friend, Andrew, was just staring in amazement and said, “I have never seen anything in my life like that.” Most of us agreed.



Mikey




We couldn't take our eyes off of the two. It was amazing, like some special blessing of divine love, beyond just a guy and cat, was going off. It was so strong that everyone could feel it and was openly saying as much. And it was amazing...none of us, HAD ever seen such a thing. Sure, we've all seen cats and domestics being given love and attention by us humanoids. But this was on a completely different level. The traffic down the road, which we can always hear, seemed to fade into silence. It was just a mesmerized group witnessing a one off event of sublime love that was totally off the charts.



At the height of that moment, with all our mouths hanging open as you do when you see something that impresses the inner soul as to amaze, I clearly heard in my heart and soul,



This is us, my Son. And our love is so much more.



It was all I could do to hold back the tears.



I said nothing, but slowly sat down in a chair.



And that is how it is with Dad; he answers my prayers pretty darn fast, usually same day and in ways no one could plan, fake, or explain away with a bunch of empty mambo-jumbo.



This is shared, unlike my usual policy of keeping my spiritual relationship and life private, as Dad put forward the idea that this whole event, truthfully given over, including all my failings as a soul, would serve some purpose to others out there in the world. I think I understand what that purpose is, but to presume it in writing is to presume how each of you will receive it. 

I'm quite aware that the enemies of Christ will have every hateful and scornful thing to say. That's to be expected from a group of people who kidnap, rape, torture and murder children. But there are those who Dad has yet to call in this life and those who are baptized and saved, and yet may need whatever this experience has to give them, whatever that might be.



Yahua's blessing be upon you all. Yeshua is the way, the path, and the life...that leads to not only salvation and freedom, BUT TRUE LOVE.



For some of us, it's all we have or ever will have.














From the Internet


I was almost raped when younger!!! While the man was on me and I couldn't escape, I prayed to Jesus to help me!!! The man's body started to be pulled off mine...His hands were clenched and unable to grab me... His voice struggled when he said "Get up and go NOW!!!"...Almost as if he didn't want to say it!!! I went to grab my purse and coat, and again but louder he said "JUST GO NOW...!!!" I looked back to see him levitating off the bed...FROZEN...WOW!!!
I got to the top of the stairs...There were about 12 of them or more...-Right then the man was able to get up, run after me and swiped at me, pushing me down the stairs. Miraculously, I landed at the bottom on my feet, then quickly ran down another set of stairs. Then I ran out the door of the building and saw a tall, long haired man standing on the sidewalk, 15 feet away, with His arms outstretched to me. Instinctively I ran into His arms. He took off His trench coat and placed it around, as it was very cold outside. He spoke and said "It's alright my daughter...Everything will be okay now...I'm going to call the police to get you and take you home."
I was in shock and didn't say anything, but I remember crying...and I felt so protected by this man...He held me in His arms while walking me to the phone and then called the police for me, as I couldn't speak. Who was this man who waited for me to run out of the building? Why did He call me daughter? How did He even know what happened to me??? He stayed with me until the police came. They pulled up and asked if I was the woman who called them? I explained that I was attacked...but that this man called for me. The policemen looked puzzled and said, " What man???" I turned around to show them this mystery man, but He was gone...The coat was gone...I said "He was just here!!!". 
While being driven home, I pondered everything that happened and decided the man must have been an angel. For many years I thought this...Until I saw the 3 dimensional statue formed from the shroud of Turin...The man who I thought to be an angel, was standing in front of me again...JESUS!!! I cried so much...I felt so bad I didn't ask him anything, thank Him even...I prayed for Him and He came down from heaven to save me.
I am now a Christian and truly owe my whole life to Jesus. He is real...He is God...He loves us so much He died for all of our sins...Please know at his story is factual!!! Jesus wants to help you too...be your friend...come to your aid when life becomes difficult or even dangerous. 
He is LOVE...KINDNESS...GOODNESS!!! HE IS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT IN EVERY WAY...WE ARE NOT!!! NO ONE CAN ENTER GOD'S PERFECT HOLY HEAVEN WITHOUT HIM...HE PAID YOUR WAY AND MINE OUT OF PURE LOVE...TAKE HIS HAND AND WALK WITH HIM...HE WANTS TO LEAD YOU HOME...GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU ALL...HE IS COMING VERY SOON TO TAKE US HOME...YOU DON'T WANT TO BE ON EARTH WHEN THE TRIBULATION COMES...THINGS ARE NOT GOING TO GET BETTER....ONLY WORSE...HE IS OUR HOPE IN A HOPELESS WORLD...MAYBE I'LL MEET YOU SOMEDAY IN HEAVEN...I HAVE HOPE!!!

Hail storms leaving 3 feet in depth, destroying Capitol of Spain, Madrid 2019

Total devastation of the capitol city of Madrid. And other cities. Of course the satanic network is spinning the usual climate change lie, changed from the Global warming lie. Hail so fierce, it creates massive rivers of destruction everywhere and ice layers of hail, several feet thick. 


IN THE MIDDLE OF SUMMER.

Becoming Transgender is not only an abomination, it's a ruined life

Please read carefully, this person's experience is typical of transitioning all the way through surgery.

Government gave her son a sex change without her consent

At age 17, the government considers you so irresponsible that you cannot buy cigarettes, drink alcohol, or consent to marriage. You also cannot vote in any election.

Even if you want to join the military at 17, you still need a parent’s permission.

But a county in Minnesota decided a 17-year-old was capable of making the life altering, irreversible decision to get a sex change. A decision that once made cannot be unmade and leads to a ruined life. For all time. A painful, shove a dildo up your new woman parts twice a day, for four hours a day, to maintain the fake vagina shape. That's how sick transitioning is. For men. For women, it's just put on a strap on dildo and have at it, like ALL the lesbians do anyway. And how about that? If you hate men so much, why do you idolize men's penis's so much you strap one on? Doesn't that make you dykes the worst kind of freakish hypocrites?

Of course it does.

The school district, county, and state agencies, without any legal process, decided the minor was emancipated from his mom. That means he is in charge of his own legal decisions.
This usually requires a court order. But in this case, school and medical officials decided this on their own. They didn’t even inform his mother before giving him drugs and elective medical treatments.

In a few years, when the lad wakes up to what he's done, it will be too damn late. A ruined life. Then who is to blame? The peer pressure he received in class in gender awareness training? The witches who worked on him relentlessly to turn a decent soul into an abomination? The social media who made it sound like the latest thing in cool?

All of the above?


So far, this mom has lost every suit she has filed. Courts say her parental rights were not substantially abridged. That would be the courts filled with satanists in the network, as they are nowadays.

Now she’s asking the Supreme Court to take up the case.

One of the many horrific aspects of those kingdoms during the antediluvian and post flood era was the Nephilim. Men acting and dressing as women, weren't enough. They were advanced enough to change their sex, as the Bible in ancient texts so declare. Far from the bronze age lies modern text books give over, thousands of years ago, there was technology and the dark arts extant that FAR EXCEEDED anything we know about today, though that gap is rapidly closing.

As in the days of Noah, to be sure.

They were all over the globe...like now

Freak time in college and if you speak out, you are expelled as a bigot

Over 30% of the planet's surface has burned to the ground since 2017


Revelations
And the seven messengers who are having the seven trumpets did prepare themselves that they may sound;

7and the first messenger did sound, and there came hail and fire, mingled with blood, and it was cast to the land, and the third of the trees was burnt up, and all the green grass was burnt up.

Yellow spots or zones are fires in the last couple of years. Red is current blazes.



A rainfall of blood in on March 19th 2019. It was in every pot, container, the hot tub and all over our valley and beyond. Everyone I asked in southern California if they had pots or such outside their home, did they contain a red liquid? Everyone reported yes. Human blood. Over 9 counties.

And when it dried out and you added water back to it, it reconstituted. Somatid alive but unable to get chromosome count. AB negative. Fortunately, I kept a sample of it in a vial for further testing. When the funds become available and a lab can be found that isn't controlled by the satanic network, which is near impossible to find these days.
Of course nothing on the internet or media, big silence. So much for the truth movement, so called, in California.

Chinese Social Credit Score Prevents 262.5 Million "Discredited Entities" From Buying Plane Tickets

Trial run of Mark of the Beast

Don Bradley
Coming soon to the west.





 

The Communist Chinese government is bragging about its social credit system has prevented 262.5 million “discredited entities” from purchasing plane tickets and 900,000 people from buying high speed train tickets in the month of July alone. For not being a TOTAL COMMUNIST MIND CONTROLLED SLAVE. tweeted the Global Times, a Chinese government mouthpiece. 30,000 people are added to the DEATH LIST each and every month.

Once on it, you cannot buy or sell, own a car, travel abroad, eat in restaurants, or do much else. And they are adding new restrictions, like receiving medical attention, all the time.

DO you UNDERSTAND WHAT I AM SAYING TO YOU.


Pay attention world, this is you very very soon.








Chinese citizens are punished by having their social credit score lowered for engaging in a number of different behaviors, including;

– Bad driving.
– Smoking on trains.
– Buying too many video games.
– Buying too much junk food.
– Buying too much alcohol.
– Calling a friend who has a low credit score .
– Having a friend online who has a low credit score.
– Posting “fake news” online.
– Criticizing the government.
– Visiting unauthorized websites.
– Walking your dog without a leash.
– Letting your dog bark too much.
 as well as buying food grown in gardens, rather than state approved foods. Or singing in public. 

OF COURSE, OPENLY PRAYING IN PUBLIC IS PUNISHABLE WITH THE DEATH PENALTY.

LET THAT SINK IN FOR A MOMENT. OR LONGER. Pray and you die. No court, no trial, just summary execution. By law.

This is coming.

Coming for you.

And yes, you will have to deny Yeshua as the Messiah and renounce Christianity. And thereby lose the seal of YHVH on your forehead. For all time.

Forever.

 
 As of November 2018, 262.7 million Chinese people had already been banned from buying air and train tickets. That number now appears to be surging. The satanic Illuminati is using China as a test bed vehicle to work out their Mark of the Beast laws.

You cannot 

  • buy or sell
  • work
  • rent or own
  • travel
  • no licenses
  • not allowed to leave domicile

The above is the beginning of the Beast laws, coming soon. They started this in earnest in 2017 -no surprise, revelation 12 - and it is now operating full scale for 1.2 billion chinese citizens. When it goes worldwide, and the satanic democrats are already working on similar legislation and are de facto doing it already by blacklisting conservatives and Trump supporters.

It's only a matter of time, and not very much time, as you will see.

While many on the left and in the media decry China’s Orwellian social credit score system, they simultaneously advocate for a similar thing in the west, where people are deplatformed and have their right to engage in commerce revoked because of their political views.

“Big Tech has already implemented their own “social credit score” system where they punish people for their political views by de-platforming them, censoring their websites and closing their PayPal/bank accounts,” writes Chris Menahan.
“On the other hand, media outlets which push propaganda in accordance with the desires of our ruling oligarchs are rewarded by having their content algorithmically artificially boosted and handed millions of dollars.”
Imagine going to buy groceries with your credit card, but then having your payment declined because someone in an office in San Francisco thinks you posted something “hateful” on the Internet.

That’s our collective future.

Full Moon sets in the southwest, as it has done many times before


Nasa and colleges teach that this NEVER happens and is, according to helocentric whatever, quite impossible.


So the full moon sets in the southwest, but as before, no mention of it by astronomers, of any stripe. And if there is, it is being blocked out by the search algorithms of Google CIA.

Yet the sun is still set northwest. We calculated a 37 degree separation between the two points this morning. Not the "within 3 degrees of the ecliptic" science liars claim it always does.

Not today...not today.

Raising Nimrod...the satanic abomination scheme DIES IRAE

Yeshua defeats Lucifer and every time. Tough skanks.


I was walking through Libbey park, and a coven was putting on a rehearsal for a performance slated for the coming saturday, called DIES IRAE, Day of Wrath
In the center of the stage was a black coffin. and a "lady" was banging on it with rubber mallets and running it through loud speakers setup all over the park and beyond so you could hear it all over downtown.

I asked one of the performing musicians what the point of the piece was about.
"Raising Nimrod, the damned"

I see.

As I was talking to this person, someone in charge came and sat near me, so she could hear what we were talking about. The lesbian didn't look very happy. But, it was about music structure, and was it a new piece? I spoke to him as one musician to another, being classically trained in college. Other than the corpse box in the center stage, that was my only interest.

No, it wasn't, he replied to my query. First time it was to be performed. Ever. And they were turning it into a hate Trump frenzy, as I perceived. The bassist was a soy-boy, omega soul.

Oh. Ok.

Beating on a coffin in time with discordant piano chords. The Beatles or Beethoven, this piece is NOT. In fact, it's a bunch of screaming shit, frankly.

9:00-10:30pm | Libbey Bowl  DIES IRAE (West Coast Premiere of a coven of lesbians doing the Trump Derangement Syndrome)
Staged concert conceptualized by Patricia Kopatchinskaja
Patricia Kopatchinskaja, violin| Anthony Romaniuk, piano and harpsichord | JACK Quartet | Mahler Chamber Orchestra | Tito Munoz, conductor | Maria Urpsprung, Stage Director
Includes music by HEINRICH IGNAZ FRANZ VON BIBER, GEORGE CRUMB, MICHAEL HERSCH, ANTONIO LOTTI, JORGE SÁNCHEZ-CHIONG, AND GALINA USTVOLSKAJA
Global warming, refugee crises, wars over scarce resources: a world out of balance, Trump hate and attacking his family. This staged event features selections ranging from Gregorian chant and 17th-century battle music by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Von Biber to powerful recent works, including the deeply disturbing Dies Irae by the Russian composer Galina Ustvolskaya. The West Coast premiere of a major commentary on the state of our planet, as seen and propagandized by the satanic left. Courtesy of one of the many lesbian covens that have descended upon Ojai valley with vicious intent.


Mt Nebo and the Site Of Moses Burial

Moses is buried under the split rock. It's my contention that YHVH used the split rock, a famous passage from Exodus, Genesis, etc to mark the location. It even looks exactly like the split rock Moses made near Jebel El Laws so the 2 million Hebrews could have a river of water from which to drink and feed the cattle. Both split rocks are still in their respective locations.

Being the first to point this out, I am informed the satanic cabal will rush out a team to dig and also to make videos announcing "their" discovery. Well, August 12, 2019 is the real discovery date.

It was under everyone's noses for thousands of years. And now you have it.

Scholars Finally Confirm Ancient Carthage was Involved in Child Sacrifice

Leviticus 18:21 (ESV)
You shall not give any of your children to offer them to Moloch, and so profane the name of your God: I am the LORD.



This is Part II of our three-part series on human sacrifice and extreme debauchery in the ancient world. See Part I: “Rome’s Own Version of an ‘Eyes Wide Shut’ Cult: Bacchanalia Runs Amok“; and Part III: “Cult Ritual Killings in Ancient Rome.”

One the main purposes of examining hidden histories such as the Roman Bacchic outbreak of 188-186 B.C. or Sabbatean Frankism of the 17th and 18th centuries is to illustrate the pajama-person nature of many of the historical scholars involved. Just as they dismissed Roman historian Livy’s Bacchanalia revelations, they also dismissed Phoenican-Cannanite-Israeli-Carthage accounts of child sacrifice.

Greco-Roman sources have always reported that the Carthaginians burned their children as offerings to Baʿal Hammon. The skeptics opined that this was Roman black propaganda.
human sacrifices baal baalbek worship ancient ritualsBut French-led excavations at Carthage in 1921 and 1923 uncovered a large quantity of urns containing a mixture of bones of animals and children. René Dussaud identified a 4th-century B.C. stela found in Carthage as depicting a child sacrifice. In a single child cemetery, called the Tophet by archaeologists, an estimated 20,000 urns were deposited.
“Tophet” is a term derived from the Bible, used to refer to a site near Jerusalem in which Canaanites and Israelites sacrificed children on alters.
At last, with the evidence mounting in 2014, a number of key researchers swung back to the child-sacrifice view. In a paper published in the journal “Antiquity,” Dr. Josephine Quinn of Oxford University’s Faculty of Classics and author wrote: “It’s becoming increasingly clear that the stories about Carthaginian child sacrifices are true.”
Punic priest with infant in tow
Sites within Carthage and other Phoenician centers revealed the remains of young children in large numbers. Other Phoenician colonies conducted the practice. Sites within Carthage and other Phoenician centers, such as Motya near Sicily, revealed the remains of male children under the age of 5. There was no evidence of disease in the bones that survived cremation.
Tophets have been also found in Sardinia at Sulci, Nora, Monte Sirai, Tharros and Bithia. Since 1963, a cemetery of 3,000 sacrificed children from 1 month to 4 years old has been under excavation in Sardinia, an area of Punic conquest and settlement.
The city-state of ancient Carthage was a Phoenician colony located in what is now Tunisia. It operated from around 800 B.C. until 146 B.C., when it was destroyed by the Romans. Carthage itself was destroyed and 150,000 to 200,000 were put to the sword. The remaining 50,000 were sold into slavery. However, Rome had spared seven satellite cities of Carthage that had sided with Rome and did little to interfere with sacrifice practices with its allies.
Carthage was a racial mix of the Numidians and Libyans who were among the ancestors of modern Berbers and the Semitic Phoenicans.
It was another 50 years, according to Pliny the Elder, until human sacrifice in ancient Rome was abolished by a senatorial decree, in 97 BCE. Although the Romans called human sacrifice barbaric, there is ample evidence that Rome often looked the other way when human sacrifice was practiced in its domains.
If one counts the Tyre, Phoenician and the Canaanite history of the religion, it was ingrained for a millennium. Did it just totally fizzle out? Doubtful. It would merely go more underground to be practiced by secretive societies and cults. Stay tuned for a future article on Roman and post-Roman era ritual killings.

Saturn and the Carthaginian god Ba’al Hammūn are interchangeable. The Roman form of Ba’al was an African Saturn (Hammon or Amunus in Philo‘s work), and it was also a fertility god. The prevailing theory was that human blood was necessary to maintain the supernatural powers of the gods.
The cultural exchange between Rome and debauched Carthage as a result of the Second Punic War may have influenced the development of the Festival of Saturnalia.

Cronus (Kronos)
Carthage derived the original core of its religion from Phoenicia. The system of gods and goddesses in Phoenician religion also influenced many other cultures throughout the Levant. In interpretatio graeca, the Phoenician god was identified with Cronus due to the parallel theme of Cronus devouring his children. The painting at right is illustrative.
Sources suggest that babies were roasted to death on a heated bronze statue. According to Diodorus Siculus, “There was in their city a bronze image of Cronus extending its hands, palms up and sloping toward the ground, so that each of the children when placed thereon rolled down and fell into a sort of gaping pit filled with fire” (Bib. Hist. 20.14.6).
Cleitarchus in his “Scholia” of Plato’s Republic mentions the practice:
There stands in their midst a bronze statue of Kronos, its hands extended over a bronze brazier, the flames of which engulf the child. When the flames fall upon the body, the limbs contract and the open mouth seems almost to be laughing until the contracted body slips quietly into the brazier. Thus it is that the ‘grin’ is known as ‘sardonic laughter,’ since they die laughing.
Plutarch in De superstitione also mentions the practice in Carthage:
They themselves offered up their own children, and those who had no children would buy little ones from poor people and cut their throats as if they were so many lambs or young birds.
Ba’al’s supremacy among the Carthaginian gods is believed to date to the fifth century B.C., after relations between Carthage and Tyre were broken off at the time of the Battle of Himera (480 B.C.).

The Phoenicans derive from the Canaanites. The evidence for child sacrifice in Greco-Roman and Biblical tradition is also associated with the Canaanite god Ba’al Hammon — which, in addition to a male fertility god, was also associated with the owl and a Minotaur with head of a bull. He is also known as Moloch. Baʿal Hammon was especially associated with the ram and was worshiped also as Baʿal Qarnaim (“Lord of Two Horns”). Ba’al can also be interpreted as “master” or “Lord Master.”

Child given as sacrifice to Ba’al
In the Levant in the early 20th century, scholarly opinion on the topic begins to be informed by the results of archaeological excavations in the Near East, notably those by R. A. S. Macalister at Gezer from 1902 to 1909. Macalister reported evidence of child sacrifice in the Late Bronze Age Canaan. Consensus has shifted toward the assumption of widespread child sacrifice in Canaan. Motifs from the era and region are undeniable.
Canaanite religion was followed by Ancient Semitic religions living in the ancient Levant (modern regions of Israel, the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria) between early Bronze age (3000 BCE) till 1st century of Common Era. IMAGE/TEXT: BooksFact.com
There is ample discussion in the Old Testament about the practice among the ancient Israelis, with the text ultimately condemning the practice. It seems that they were dealing with this issue. It was a regional practice.
Genesis 22:2
Then God said, “Take your son, your only son, Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I will tell you about.”
Wisdom 14:21-23 RSV
Afterward it was not enough for them to err about the knowledge of God, but they live in great strife due to ignorance, and they call such great evils peace. For whether they kill children in their initiations, or celebrate secret mysteries, or hold frenzied revels with strange customs …
1 Kings 13:1-2 NLT
At the LORD’s command, a man of God from Judah went to Bethel, and he arrived there just as Jeroboam was approaching the altar to offer a sacrifice. Then at the LORD’s command, he shouted, “O altar, altar! This is what the LORD says: A child named Josiah will be born into the dynasty of David. On you he will sacrifice the priests from the pagan shrines who come here to burn incense, and human bones will be burned on you.
2 Samuel 21:1-11 (KJV)
  1. Then there was a famine in the days of David three years, year after year; and David enquired of the LORD. And the LORD answered, It is for Saul, and for his bloody house, because he slew the Gibeonites.
  2. And the king called the Gibeonites, and said unto them; (now the Gibeonites were not of the children of Israel, but of the remnant of the Amorites; and the children of Israel had sworn unto them: and Saul sought to slay them in his zeal to the children of Israel and Judah.)
  3. Wherefore David said unto the Gibeonites, What shall I do for you? and wherewith shall I make the atonement, that ye may bless the inheritance of the LORD?
  4. And the Gibeonites said unto him, We will have no silver nor gold of Saul, nor of his house; neither for us shalt thou kill any man in Israel. And he said, What ye shall say, that will I do for you.
  5. And they answered the king, The man that consumed us, and that devised against us that we should be destroyed from remaining in any of the coasts of Israel,
  6. Let seven men of his sons be delivered unto us, and we will hang them up unto the LORD in Gibeah of Saul, whom the LORD did choose. And the king said, I will give them.
  7. But the king spared Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan the son of Saul, because of the LORD’s oath that was between them, between David and Jonathan the son of Saul.
  8. But the king took the two sons of Rizpah the daughter of Aiah, whom she bare unto Saul, Armoni and Mephibosheth; and the five sons of Michal the daughter of Saul, whom she brought up for Adriel the son of Barzillai the Meholathite:
  9. And he delivered them into the hands of the Gibeonites, and they hanged them in the hill before the LORD: and they fell all seven together, and were put to death in the days of harvest, in the first days, in the beginning of barley harvest.
The Talmud goes so far as to put guidelines on Molach sacrifice to be passable in some form. Why are they even having this conversation at all?
Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Sanhedrin 64a
MISHNAH. HE WHO GIVES OF HIS SEED TO MOLECH INCURS NO PUNISHMENT UNLESS HE DELIVERS IT TO MOLECH AND CAUSES IT TO PASS THROUGH THE FIRE. IF HE GAVE IT TO MOLECH BUT DID NOT CAUSE IT TO PASS THROUGH THE FIRE, OR THE REVERSE, HE INCURS NO PENALTY, UNLESS HE DOES BOTH.
Later, in  Deuteronomy 18:9-12 and in Leviticus, dealing with the issue?
When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire … Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you.
Leviticus 18:21 (ESV)
You shall not give any of your children to offer them to Molech, and so profane the name of your God: I am the LORD.
