Etymology of Arch

In English we can have one word spelled different ways and sound the same but have different meanings. Cell, sale, sail, sell. The same is with the word like Arch. It can mean a shelf cloud, a hunting bow or a arch for building purposes. All these symbolise something that is a upside down U shape. It also can mean a ruler or leader or like in Greek, the beginning of something.

“From Middle English arch-, arche-, from Old English arċe-, ærċe-, erċe- (“arch-”), from Latin archi- (reborrowed directly as Modern English archi-), from Ancient Greek ἀρχι- (arkhi-), from ἄρχω (árkhō, “to begin, to lead, to rule, to govern”) (whence also English -arch), from Proto-Indo-European *h₂ergʰ- (“to begin, rule, command”).” In New Testament Greek ἄρχω (archò) means to reign, rule in the sense of being first. So in a Biblical sense, the Arch of Triumph replica can not only mean a Arch as we know it but the beginning of something. That’s why this Arch is such a big deal to everyone, we can all sense its the beginning of the end.

From the section The Arches and the Bridge in my book. Remember Nimrod was a mighty hunter and Artemis the sister of Apollo (Nimrod type) was a archer. The Arch replica was to invoke the divine feminine goddess to bring about their man of sin to the earth.

“The arrow concept that mirrors the quality of the creature in the garden can be extended to the centaur, the mythological bowman whose skill makes the investigation of the etymology behind the word “archer”significant. In Greek, the archi or arch means “the chief or principal leader, the first in rank.” The Nachash was known as the most beautiful of the cherubim. The Latin arche from the Greek “archi” also means “to begin, to lead, rule or govern.” In architecture, the structure known as the “arch” used extensively in stonemasonry actually comes from the Proto-Indo-European word for the bow and arrow. “Archery,” from the Latin arcus, is “the art, practice, or skill of propelling arrows with the use of a bow.” Anyone
known in mythology as a skilled archer was also an effective hunter or warrior…The “illuminated” stonemasons who utilize the structure of the arch symbolically honor and represent their god continually in the form and names of the structures they skillfully
produce.” (Mark Flynn. Forbidden Secrets of the Labyrinth: The Awakened Ones, the Hidden Destiny of America, and the Day after Tomorrow, Page 24)
