The Great Pyramid, Part 5

As was stated in our previous post the testimony of the Lord’s stone witness has been kept hidden
from the world, but shortly sometime during the beginning of the Mediatorial phase of the kingdom its
testimony will be delivered to (
Egypt) the world, then and only then will they be prepared to appreciate
the testimony of this particular witness.

It is very possible that sometime during the opening stages of the Mediatorial reign the Great Pyramid
will be completely refurbished with all the beautiful white limestone casing stones which once covered
its exterior, and for the first time [
ever], a Top Stone will cap the edifice to then be an everlasting
memorial to symbolize the oneness of the Kingdom of God.

Then shall the LORD declare:

"
What are you, O Great Mountain? (Babylon; the kingdom of the Evil One) Before Zerubbabel
you will become a plain; and
he will bring forth the top stone with shouts of Grace, grace to
it
!” (Zech 4:7 NAS)

The great mountain of Satan’s Kingdom will be leveled and will become the flat plain of the
Highway of Holiness
. Zerubbabel as you remember rebuilt the typical Temple, so our LORD as the
antitypical Zerubbabel will complete
the spiritual temple, (Compare 1 Pet 2:5a spiritual house
and
Eph 2:21a holy temple) “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this
temple [the Church], his hands shall also finished it
” (Zech 4:9), and then shall all mankind
recognize Jesus with shouts of joy as the
Top Stone.

The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief (or head) cornerstone.” (Luke 20:
17)

[And thus shall] our exalted Lord reign over all mankind, who in turn [shall] endeavor to conform their
lives in harmony to his principles.

During this Gospel Age there has been erected a counterfeit or Antitypical Pyramid, the
workmanship of Satan as in comparison with God’s
workmanshipthe true temple of the
LORD
(Eph 2:10) this counterfeit kingdom claiming to rule by Divine right, has dominated the whole
world for many centuries; but it is not the kingdom for which the Lord taught his disciples to pray:
Thy Kingdom come.” Soon its sins will have reached unto heaven, and God will remember its
iniquities; and its plagues will come in one day, death and mourning and famine; and
it will be utterly
destroyed with
(or in) fire (trouble); for strong is the Lord God who judges it, (Rev 18:5, 8)
This will [take place] during the great time of trouble, which is now begun, and will completely end the
Gospel Age.”
























“On the Chart of the Ages [it will be noticed that], the great time of trouble is represented by the
shaded part at the end of the Gospel Age.
The large imperfect pyramid there shown falling into
ruins, represents the destruction of 'Babylon the Great," the counterfeit Antitypical Pyramid,
which has never been completed
. In the 51st Chapter of Jeremiah, the Lord intimates that for it
there will be neither “
headstone”, nor “foundation-stones.”

Behold I am against thee, O destroying mountain [kingdom], says the Lord, which destroys
the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and
roll thee down from the rocks, and
will make thee a burnt mountain: and they shall not take from thee a stone for a corner, nor
a stone for a foundation; but everlasting ruins shall thou be, says the Lord
" Jer 51:25, 26-
Leeser's translation
. This vivid description of the Lord's judgment doubtless applied to the literal
Babylon of the prophet's day, but as indicated by the many citations in the book of Revelation, it has
its Antitypical fulfillment in the destruction of “
Babylon the GreatRev 17:5; 18 (Great Pyramid
Passages Page 51
)

More specifically we believe that Babylon’s demise will come just prior to Armageddon,
following the collapse of the Confederacy between church and state, when Satan shall be
made clearly manifested to all through the works of his deluded servants
at that time,
revealed as the master mind behind the great false system, which is Antichrist,
(2 Thess 2:8),
[Then, following these events] there was a great earthquake  [a revolution unprecedented],
such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were upon the face of
the earth [a complete and utter collapse of society into total anarchy]
.” Rev 16:18

We believe, that is some Bible Students believe, that the “great earthquake” which is to come,
which shall shortly shake the very foundations of society, “
this present evil world”, is not only in
reference to the great revolution or time of trouble coming, but also is in reference to
a literal
earthquake
soon to come.

“The term earthquake is used to symbolically represent revolution—it is in this sense of the word that
it is used throughout the book of Revelation. What we are to look for then will be great revolution, the
great earthquake, the great shaking of the present institutions, which will overthrow everything that is
not of the Lord’s establishment and approval (
Heb 12:26, 27). Why then should we think of or
speak of literal earthquakes do you ask?
Because in the divine order there seems to be a
harmony between the literal and the figurative
; literal earthquakes have their part to play,
too, in the great program
. Not only are they to serve the church as signs corroborating the
prophecies respecting the approach of the great day of trouble, which closes this age, but they also
serve another purpose—a particular purpose. The scriptures clearly intimate that our physical earth
has not yet attained the grand perfection which the Lord designs it should have, to be fit for the
blessed ones whose home, as the paradise of God, it shall be throughout all eternity.” (
Harvest
Gleanings 3, page 810
)

With this in mind we see the Great Pyramid of Giza as representing the one true kingdom of the Lord
soon to be established throughout the earth, and the two adjoining pyramids, (
along with all the
other smaller pyramids of lesser note
) as Satan’s vain attempts to counterfeit that kingdom, the large
kingdoms of this world (
mountains) and the smaller kingdoms (hills).  

The identity of the Great Pyramid of Giza to the exclusion of all the other pyramids, as the
one referred to in the Holy Scriptures, is shown by an allusion to one of its characteristic
distinctions, namely, its
socket foundations. This allusion is found in Job 38:4-7, the questions
which Jehovah addresses to Job refers first to the earth, and then, while still appearing to be
connected with the earth,
clearly alludes to the erection of the Great Pyramid, the type of the New
Creation.

The Scripture reads thus: “
Where were thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? Declare
if thou hast understanding. Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou know? Or who hath
stretched the line upon it?
Whereupon are the sockets thereof made to sink? (i.e. Where are its
foundations fastened?
) Or who laid the corner-stone thereof: when the morning stars sang
together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?


The earth’s foundations are invisible unseen to the eye, nevertheless they are very much real and felt
by all they are the very forces which govern the earth’s placement in the cosmos, the solar system,
the universe, invisible forces of motion termed centrifugal and centripetal, they are component forces
of gravity, invisible forces of nature implemented by the architect and creator of natures laws, as it is
written, “
He stretches out the north over empty space; he hangs the earth on nothing.” Job 26:
7
Thus symbolically one might say that the earth’s foundations or sockets are made to sink it into
place establishing its placement in the cosmos, however upon further examination our text appears to
be making a still further allusion to a specific object or structure which not only literally possesses
socket foundations made to sink”, but likewise possesses a “corner stone” at its top.

The Great Pyramid of Giza is such a structure in fact the only pyramid structure possessing
such socket-foundations
. Commenting upon this fact, Dr. Seiss declares: “Nor is it only to the
pyramidal form in general that the allusion is, but to a
particular pyramid. By that strange
reference to the
sunken feet or planting of the foundations in 'sockets,' we are conducted
directly to the Great Pyramid of Giza
. Two socketed “encastrements,” “socles,” shoes, or incised
sinking’s, into the rock were found under two of its base corners by the French savants in 1799, which
were again uncovered and described by Colonel Howard Vyse, in 1837. And as God here speaks of
such a fastening down of the foundations in general, Professor C. Piazzi Smyth was persuaded that
there were corresponding 'sockets' at the other two base corners, and when search was made for
them in 1865, they were found by Messrs, Aiton and Inglis, assisted by Professor Smyth. Here then
are the whole four 'sockets' or fastened foundations.
Nothing of the sort exists at any other
known pyramid
. They are among the distinctive marks of the Great Pyramid of Giza. They are the
enduring tracks of its feet
cut into the living rock, by which almighty God himself identifies it
for us as the original image from which his own description of the creation is drawn
”. (Great
Pyramid Passages page 49
)

What is the significance of this you might ask?
























It is these “sunken feet”, unique only to the Great Pyramid, positioned at the four corners, “cut into
the living rock
” (a “sure foundation) beneath the pyramid that will sustain the great pyramid in the
event of an earthquake.
Thus the Lord has provided for the Great Pyramid of Giza to be an
everlasting memorial
and testament of the one TRUE Kingdom of God.

And in the days of these kings (the various false kingdoms of this world purporting to be Christian
nations, but who in truth are but counterfeits
) the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which
shall never be destroyed…it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and shall
stand forever
. “(Dan 2:44)

Why? Because it has been established upon a “sure foundation”, the Word of God as it has been
given to us in Christ Jesus our Lord, “
For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is
laid, which is Jesus Christ
.” (1 Cor 3:11) To the Church pictured in the Pyramid he is a “sure
foundation
” a sanctuary, to the world “a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence” (Isa 8:14)
The other pyramids (specifically the two adjoining the Great Pyramid) typifying the kingdoms of this
world shall be, we believe as the Lord so stated in
Jer 51:25, “rolled down from the rocks” crumble
to pieces in the great earthquake (
a literal earthquake soon to take place) due to the fact that they
have no sure foundation, they possess no socket foundations to support their great mass in the
event of an earthquake.

With the conclusion of our first five posts we believe we have sufficient evidence which proves
conclusively that the Great Pyramid is of divine intention, that it is biblically supported, and that it was
built to fulfill a divine purpose, thus a study of its testimony would serve only to strengthen the faith
of the Lord’s people. In our next post we shall begin with our examination of the general design and
construction of the Great Pyramid to see how and in what matter its construction relates to the plan of
God
symbolically; upon the conclusion of which we shall attempt to explain the chronology of the
Great Pyramid and how its testimony collaborates the Scriptural testimony.
