So many references to the Great Pyramid lay dormant within the Bible’s pages that it seems surreal that they have managed to stay hidden for so long. And yet they have. In a previous (and short) article entitled Egypt’s Great Pyramid: Built to Represent the Human Body, it was outlined how the human body and the Great Pyramid share much in common in terms of esoteric and religious symbolism. Because things will get pretty hectic from here on, reviewing that article first may be a good idea in order to fully understand the concepts presented here. Also keep in mind that since the original Bible was written in Aramaic, I will use the English version that is the closest to the original source material. Of course, that means we’ll be using the King James version.
And off we go.
An Altar In The Land Of Egypt.
[i]"In that day shall there be an altar to the LORD in the midst of the land of Egypt..."
[/i]Isaiah 19. V 19.
[i]Therefore we said, ‘Let us now build an altar, not for burnt offering, nor for sacrifice: but that it may be a witness between us, and you, and your generations after us.[/i]
Joshua 22. V 26.
Besides its description as an altar, the interesting thing to note in regards to the Great Pyramid, is that unlike regular altars where offerings and sacrifices are expected to take place, this altar was instead meant to be a legacy for future generations and transcend time itself (as the Pyramid certainly has done well). In other words, whoever designed and built the structure knew that it would fulfill a greater purpose in a distant time period. That purpose is unknown at this point, but perhaps that time period is upon us – especially as we approach (groan…yes, I’m going to say it) the end of the Mayan calendar. We’ll just have to wait and see.
The Missing Capstone.
Heated exchanges in regards to the Pyramid’s missing capstone have always existed. Why isn’t it there? Was it put into place at one point and then removed? Was it stolen? Let’s quickly present the following biblical passage for insight:
[i]Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?[/i]
Mathew 21. V 42.
There are two ways that the builders might have rejected the Pyramid’s capstone: either the stone was placed and it was subsequently removed or destroyed, or else it simply wasn’t put there to begin with. My bet is that it was the latter, and the idea isn’t without precedence. In fact, the founding fathers of America already knew this and used this symbolism to design and build the Great Seal of the United States of America (I’m Canadian by the way, so please don’t take my writing as patriotic zeal). The nation’s founding fathers put the Great Pyramid and its ethereal or fiery capstone smack dab on the back of the American dollar bill. The main idea to retain here is that the capstone is indeed there on the Pyramid, but it was never meant to be visible. Instead, it was designed and meant to be invisible and spiritual. Alright, some may say. So what’s the purpose behind an invisible capstone? Why have it at all? The short answer may please (and displease many): the capstone signifies Christ itself. Now, if one can accept that, the obvious question becomes: what exactly is Christ or the capstone overseeing?
Enter the majestic twelve.
The Twelve Disciples.
In Egypt’s Great Pyramid: Built to Represent the Human Body, it was shown how the Pyramid contains the twelve astrological signs of the Zodiac within its design. Basically, each one of Jesus’ disciples represented a particular sign such as Gemini, Taurus, Libra, etc. And since Christ was the thirteenth person of his entourage, he also represented the thirteenth and perfect astrological sign – the one sign that contains the best characteristics of all of them. To say that the Great Pyramid contains the twelve signs or Disclipes may seem like a tall claim, but the proof is right there in black and white within the Bible’s pages:
[i]Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Ephesians 2. V 19 - 22.
This passage reveals explicitly that the apostles are the structure’s foundation. Everything rests upon them, with Christ at top and center overlooking them. The main message? Don’t restrain yourselves to being one sign. Instead, embrace and become all of them at once so that you free yourself of Astrology altogether.
Speaking of being freed…
[i]Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred forty four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
Revelations 7. V 3 - 4.
The current state of the world right now is on a lot of religious minds these days, as is the idea of Rapture and being taken up into Heaven or other dimensions to be saved from worldly chaos. However, it is worth noting that historically speaking, the Great Pyramid was also said to possess exactly 144,000 casing stones (36,000 for each of the structure’s four sides). If the number 144,000 refers to the Great Pyramid instead, then what we are presented with is the idea that rather than being saved from above by a mysterious Deus Ex Machina element, the onus is upon us to at least try to save our own selves by ‘becoming” the 144,000. In other words, if we become the Pyramid, we save ourselves.
The Man, Lion, Ox, and Eagle.
[i]Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.[/i]
Ezekiel 1. V 5 and 10.
[i]And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf. And the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.
Revelations 4. V 7.
These four creatures are archetypal symbols depicted by astrology’s four fixed signs: Leo (the lion), Taurus (the bull or ox), Aquarius (depicted by a man), and the ever perceptive and mysterious sign of Scorpio (symbolized by a scorpion in its lesser state but as an eagle in its highest). Since these signs are said to be fixed (as in stubborn and obstinate), one should also look to the top of the Pyramid as their main resting place. Incidentally, one also finds these four creatures in the Tarot on the 21st card of the Major Arcana.
The Great Pyramid And The Book Of Revelations.
If the Bible can be said to mention the Great Pyramid, the Book of Revelations is where the Pyramid really stands out. Two of Revelations’ passages in particular are literally riddled with Pyramid insinuations. We don’t have time to go through all of them here, but here are some of them:
6 - …and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, [were] four beasts full of eyes before and behind. 7 - And the first beast [was] like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast [was] like a flying eagle.
14 - And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15 - And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. 16 - And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
No mention of pyramids in there, right? Look further. They’re there. And it’s in conjunction with one another – like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle – that they take on new meaning. Let’s go through each highlighted section one-by-one:
1) Four beasts (lion, calf, man, and eagle):
Again, this is a depiction of how the Zodiac’s four fixed signs of Leo, Taurus, Aquarius, and Scorpio dwell within the Pyramid's design.
2) Twelve apostles of the Lamb:
Peter, John, Luke, Matthew, and all the rest of Jesus’ disciples are firmly positioned within the Great Pyramid itself. The twelve provide the foundation for Jesus the Christ to sit at the top and unite them as one into a thirteenth and perfected sign. The twelve disciples and signs are the Pyramid, while Christ is the capstone.
3) The city lieth foursquare:
This is easily perhaps the most outright and blatant mentioning of the Great Pyramid within Revelations. All you have to do to see it is mentally project yourself high above the Great Pyramid and look down. If you’re right over the Pyramid’s apex, what you should be looking at is a giant square shape.
4) The length is as large as the breadth:
Another obvious mentioning. The length of each of the Great Pyramid’s four sides is indeed the same.
The Biblical Pyramid And Its Message.
In my opinion, three things can be remembered by reviewing all this. Number one is that the Great Pyramid is relevant. Even today in our hyper high tech world, the structure is not pointless or meaningless. It is fully alive and will one day awaken to speak with us directly. Perhaps sooner than we think.
Number two is that the man known to the world as the Nazarene or Jesus was in all likelihood highly familiar with the Great Pyramid and its esoteric symbolism and meaning. This is quite reasonable to assume, since Giza and Bethlehem are roughly only 200 miles from each other as the crow flies. If Jesus was indeed half the man many say he was (and I strongly suspect he was – and more), then it is safe to say that during his awakening he made one if not several trips to Egypt to become acquainted with Egyptian mysteries and the Pyramid itself. The man probably knew the Pyramid inside and out, which brings us to our last point.
In his fully enlightened and awakened state, Jesus became the Great Pyramid. From then on, he sought to impart his teachings and help us remember that essentially, we are all like him and that we have the powers within us to free ourselves. Again, if we become the Pyramid, we save ourselves.
Perhaps the greatest tragedy of all in this is that because of the controlling and overbearing minds of past leaders, the presence of the world’s greatest architectural achievement has been overly encrypted and hidden from our awareness. Had this knowledge been allowed to flow forth from the start long ago, our current plight as a species might never have come to pass. But the flipside of that is realizing that perhaps we might not have learned all that we have had during our time here if the teachings were simply handed to us. After all, growth doesn’t spring forth from a life of ease. It pushes its way into existence because of trials and difficulties. We’d do well to remember that as we enter the next few years.
