The Great Pyramid, Part 1
“To the Great, the Mighty God whose name is the LORD of hosts… great in counsel and mighty
in work… who has set forth signs and wonders in the land of Egypt even unto this day…”
As Students of God’s Word it is only natural that we should find ourselves drawn to anything relative to
the divine revelation which we believe in any way would lend aid to our faith and understanding of God’s
plans and purposes toward us, thus it is with great interest that we find ourselves drawn to the Great
Pyramid which many of us have come to understand is a collaborative testimony to the plan of God
as it relates to both the Church and the world of mankind as reveal through the Holy Scriptures.
Pastor Russell once suggested that the purpose of its having been built was “to confirm (collaborate)
the faith of his people at the end of the Gospel Age.” This of course implies that one’s faith has
already been fully established upon the divine revelation, the written testimony.
The collaborative testimony which we receive from the Great Pyramid is NOT meant to be a
substitute or replacement for our faith in the Word of God; it is simply a confirmation or
witness to it. Thus it would only seems prudent that those who would have this additional confirmation
of their faith should make an honest effort to see in just what way the Great Pyramid collaborates the
“It will be noted that all four of the following items teach the plan of God, but each from its own
unique perspective. The Great Pyramid is a scientific (or mathematical) instrument. The
Tabernacle is a symbolic instrument. Ezekiel’s Temple is a literal instrument (but with spiritual
lessons), and lastly The Book of Revelation is a spiritual instrument (but one which will, in the end
have natural or literal effects upon mankind).” The Book of Exodus, Page 153
A good through study of each of these four resources will greatly aid ones overall understanding of the
Divine Plan and purpose, each as seen from a different perspective, but nevertheless all in harmony
one with another.
Now as to the Great Pyramid such a monumental study as this can appear a bit daunting at first,
however like any other subject with a little applied effort and study it will soon reveal its hidden
treasures, and so it is with this purpose in mind that we shall undertake this investigation together, I
say together because although personally I have read the Tenth Chapter of Volume Three in the
Studies in the Scriptures Series on the Great Pyramid, and this with great interest even as others here
have yet still I have not taken the time to fully commit myself to a study of the Pyramid as thoroughly
as I would have liked to, therefore in this presentation together we shall seek for understanding, and
for that wisdom which comes from above in regards to this wondrous subject.
Now where shall we begin? Well for those already familiar with the Great Pyramid convinced of its
divine purpose and institution the obvious answer is that we must first attempt to remove some of the
various “stumbling blocks” which serve to inhibit others from considering a study of the Pyramid of
any value to the true student of God’s Word.
The following are three specific points which we believe contribute to this stumbling.
1) The primary or chief of these stumbling points is the idea that the Great Pyramid has nothing
whatsoever to do with Christianity that it is nothing more than some Egyptian relic, temple or burial
chamber used in connection with heathen worship and practices.
2) Another stumbling block one propagated through the vain imaginings of men, i.e. new age thought,
and etc., is the idea that somehow the Pyramid has some kind of mystical power or occult significance,
3) Lastly is the thought that the Great Pyramid is of Satan’s design intentionally set forth in order to
stumble and lead away the true child of God from the truth provided for us in the Holy Scriptures, a
position taken up by the former president of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society, Judge
With these various obstacles placed before them it is no wonder that the majority are deceived and
disillusioned in regards to God’s “Stone Witness”, once again the Adversary working through his
deluded servants has succeeded in discrediting and bringing into to ill reproof one of the LORD’s chosen
vessels of truth. Thus it is that we must first prove that the Great Pyramid although originally built by
fallible men (even as was the Tabernacle) was nevertheless of divine intention, and under divine
supervision serving a divine purpose, and that its architect was none other than the LORD God
Almighty, and that this is supported by the divine testimony as was expressed in our opening texts
“To the law and the testimony if they speak not according to this word there is no light in
them.” (Isa 8:20)
Understand that in our presentation here on the Great Pyramid it is not our objective to convert the
scoffer or the skeptic, their eyes are closed to the truth on these matters even as they are generally
closed to the testimony of the Scriptures, such see only what they want to see, very little of which is
truth. It is not yet time for the world (or the worldly wise) or for that matter the mere professing
Christian, the un-consecrated to understand these things, to them the secrets of the Great Pyramid like
most of the Scriptures are hidden, seal-up until the time appointed.
THE STONE WITNESS
Many false theories are out there and so it is with great caution that the student of God’s Word should
proceed especially in regards to anything suggested as of divine intention found outside the Holy
Scriptures. We are told that “All Scripture is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction and
instruction that the man of God may be thoroughly furnished…” (2 Tim 3:16, 17) thus the
conclusion is that we have no need of anything outside the Scriptures, but what if by chance the
Scriptures themselves point us to the testimony of an “outside witness” proclaiming it to be set forth
as a “sign and a witness to the LORD (to his plans and purposes),” and this at a specific time, that is
to say “in that day” (our day), “it will speak and will not lie” (Isa 19:19; Hab 2:3), would we then
not be negligent if we should chose to disregard this witness?
Did not the same Scriptures point us to the “Faithful and Wise Servant” the “Seventh Messenger”
(Matt 24:45), and to his witness, and to his testimony as being likewise considered a “sign and a
witness to the Lord”, “the sign” which would appear in the heavens (the ecclesiastical heavens) at
the Parousia of our Lord (Matt 24:30), an “outside witness” who would likewise appear “in that day”?
Have we not found it prudent to take heed to his testimony?
Merely because one of the LORD’s witnesses is composed of flesh and blood and the other of
sand and stone does not detract in any way from their testimony, (Compare Luke 19:40) they
are both chosen vessels of the LORD thus would it not be wise to heed their counsels, especially seeing
as one of these two witnesses in his own testimony points us to the other witness.
Now in regards to Point one of our proposed stumbling blocks, there is no evidence whatsoever to
support the idea that the Great Pyramid was ever built as a religious temple to honor or worship any of
the various heathen gods, nor that it was ever used as a burial chamber. Bear in mind that we are
speaking specifically here in regards to the Great Pyramid itself, NOT in regards to the other two
pyramids adjunctive to the Great Pyramid or to any of the other lesser known pyramids found
throughout the world. Now although it’s true that an open tomb was found in the “Kings Chamber” of
the Great Pyramid no evidence was ever found to support the theory that it was ever used as a burial
As for Point two we will not waste time here disputing the various claims of those who dabble in
superstition and occultism with regards to the so-called mystical powers of the Pyramid as there are
plenty enough books and websites to be found to satisfy the curiosity of all who choose to be deceived
in this direction, however we will say that no one thing has cause so much damage and or discredit to
the testimony of the Great Pyramid as has this particular movement instigated no doubt by the
“You therefore beloved since you know this beforehand beware lest you also fall from your
own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked (those deceived by the doctrines
of devils and the vain babblings of men).” 2 Pet 3:17; 1 Tim 4:1; 2 Tim 2:16
Lastly in respects to Point three that the Great Pyramid has some satanic origin we note the following,
“Satan could not have been the designer of the Great Pyramid, for this monument contains
many features corroborative of the Biblical plan of salvation, which could not have been
known to the great adversary when the Pyramid was built over forty centuries ago. Very little
investigation can easily prove this. For instance, when our Lord was asked by his disciples when the
Kingdom of Israel would be restored, he replied: "It is not for you to know the times or the
seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power" (Acts 1:7); and on a previous occasion he
had declared: "Of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels which are in Heaven,
neither the Son, but the Father alone." (Mark 13:32).
Now, when we investigate the time-measurements of the Great Pyramid, we find that not only is the
"Day of the Lord" indicated by them, but so too all the time-features or prophetic "days" mentioned
by Daniel the Prophet are accurately marked. Daniel saw his visions, and wrote regarding these "Days,"
about five and a half centuries before our Lord's first advent, and about sixteen hundred years after
the Great Pyramid was built; and he was commanded to "shut up the words, and seal the book,
even to the time of end." (Dan 12:4).
None would understand these matters until the "Time of the End" -- that is, until the end of the
Gospel Age. And yet we find that the Great Pyramid contains these time-features of Daniel,
corroborating them by accurate measurements. If God did not reveal these features to Daniel until
sixteen hundred years after the Pyramid was built, and if none were to know how to interpret them until
many centuries afterwards, and even then only by those who are declared to be "wise" (that is wise in
the knowledge of the Lord), how then could it be possible for Satan, "that wicked one," to have
known of them at the time the Pyramid was built? It is quite manifestly unscriptural to make any
such claim, seeing the heavenly Father had retained in his own power the times and seasons.
There are many other things, now seen to be incorporated in the symbolisms and dimensions of the
Great Pyramid, which Satan could not possibly have known about when the building was erected, and
about which he probably does not even yet know. For it is only those who have the spirit of the Lord
who are taught of God -- none others have the privilege of understanding the deep things of God.”
