So, Who is Baal?
Baal was one of the most widely worshiped gods in ancient Canaan, where he
was associated with fertility and rain. He was the son of El, the supreme
god of the Canaanites, and the husband and brother of Anat, the ferocious
goddess of war. Worship of Baal was widespread in the ancient Near East. The
clay tablets of Ras es-Shamrah date from about 1500 B . C ., and Baal was
also popular in Egypt from about 1400 to 1075 B . C . In Mesopotamia, Baal
was known to the Babylonians and Assyrians, and he was identified with their
national gods Marduk and Ashur. The Greeks called the god Belos and
identified him with Zeus. Source.

WARNING TO ALL
It is vital that we wake up
and realize that these Pagan gods are not Fairy tales and Myths.
These are very real demonic spirits. They can no longer be
relegated to interesting stories, in an ancient book. There is a
reason why they were clearly illustrated throughout the Old and
New Testament. These entities have not disappeared or gone away.
Infact, they are alive and well and deceiving multitudes, today.
They are being resurrected by their faithful followers and
worshipers, some under modern names and faces, still others by
their ancient identities. There is a WORLDWIDE renewal of Pagan
Worship. They ALL beckon back to the fallen one, Lucifer. There
are many modern
day "Baal Worshippers!
The false god Baal is mentioned in the Bible under a variety of names.
Chief among the names appears to be Baalzebub or Beelzebub (in the New
Testament). He is the prince of demons. 2nd Kings
1:2-3, 6&16 "And Ahaziah fell down through a lattice in his upper
chamber that was in Samaria, and was sick: and he sent messengers, and said
unto them, Go, enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron whether I shall recover
of this disease.3 But the angel of the LORD said to Elijah the Tishbite,
Arise, go up to meet the messengers of the king of Samaria, and say unto
them, Is it not because there is not a God in Israel, that ye go to enquire
of Baalzebub the god of Ekron?....6 And they said unto him, There came a man
up to meet us, and said unto us, Go, turn again unto the king that sent you,
and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Is it not because there is not a God
in Israel, that thou sendest to enquire of Baalzebub the god of Ekron?
therefore thou shalt not come down from that bed on which thou art gone up,
but shalt surely die.....16 And he said unto him, Thus saith the LORD,
Forasmuch as thou hast sent messengers to enquire of Baalzebub the god of
Ekron, is it not because there is no God in Israel to enquire of his word?
therefore thou shalt not come down off that bed on which thou art gone up,
but shalt surely die.
In the book of Matthew, the Pharisees accusingly called Jesus by one of the
names of Baal. Matthew 12:24 But when the Pharisees
heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub
the prince of the devils.
