God’s Plan a Stone Witness Part 2 "In that day there shall be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border,…and it shall be for a sign and for a witness to the Lord of hosts."Isaiah 19:19,20

Great Pyramid-Who,How, When, Why • "The Great Pyramid proves to be a storehouse of important truth--scientific, mathematical,historic and prophetic--and its testimony is found to be in perfect accord with the Bible, expressing the prominent features of its truths in beautiful and fitting symbols. It is by no means an addition to the written revelation: that revelation is complete and perfect, and needs no addition. But it is a strong corroborative witness to God’s plan; and few students can carefully examine it, marking the harmony of its testimony with that of the written Word, without feeling impressed that its construction was planned and directed by the same divine wisdom, and that it is the pillar of witness referred to by the prophet in the above scriptural quotation." Volume 3 -Thy Kingdom Come Chapter(66 Pages), pp. 314-315

THE GREAT PYRAMID AND THE BIBLE • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ac_qGnPX8eI Part 1 Overview http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwAmvFlz3b8&NR=1 Part 2 How Built? • The Great Pyramid of Egypt is one of the most remarkable buildings in the world. But even more important, this ancient structure is referred to in the Bible. • The world's oldest structure is so advanced that it can't be duplicated today, even using current technology • Construction Unequaled by Modern Technology • Like 20th century bridge designs, the Pyramid's cornerstones have balls and sockets built into them. Several football fields long, the Pyramid is subject to expansion and contraction movements from heat and cold, as well as earthquakes, settling, and other such phenomena. After 4,100 years it's structure would have been significantly damaged without such construction. • While the bulk of the Pyramid's core was constructed of 4,000- to 40,000-pound blocks of soft limestone, the outer layer of the Pyramid was made of a beautifully bright, protective layer of polished stone. These outer "casing stones" are missing today because about 600 years ago they were stolen by Arabs, (This accounts for the very worn appearance of the Pyramid today, since the inner limestone blocks are not immune to attack by the elements-wind, rain, and sandstrom.) This protective covering was made up of 100-inch-thick, 20-ton block of hard, white limestone, similar to marble but superior in hardness and in durability against the elements.The prophet Jeremiah 32:30, speaking of God’s mighty works, declares that he hath"…set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day.“ God was the Great Architect! • The Great Pyramid is one of these signs and wonders which remains the only surviving wonder of the seven ancient wonders of the world. Over 4100 years old
Pyramidal Shape, Structure mentioned in Scripture • Size- in sheer mass dwarfs all other buildings-90 million cubic feet weigh almost 700 million tons.Enough stone to build a sidewalk around the world,(3 inches thick, 2 feet wide)Freeway Chicago-NY • A few years ago, the Japanese reportedly tried to duplicate the 4,150 year-old Great Pyramid of Giza at 1/4 scale, employing today's technology and knowledge. They had great difficulty. Indeed, the Great Pyramid seems to resist all efforts to comprehend how it was built, by whom, and for what purpose. • Scriptures that point to the Great Pyramid - Isaiah 19:19-20 • Jer. 32:20 Which hast set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day • Cornerstone,Headstone very special stone,shape, Zech. 4:7 he shall bring forth the headstone • Isaiah 28:16 – Cornerstone,Foundation , Ephesians 2:20 – Chief Cornerstone • 1 Pet 2:5-6 – Chief Cornerstone • Psalms 118:22-Stone,Headstone of Corner- The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
Great Pyramid of Gizeh • So named because workmanship is superior to any other Pyramid. 486 feet high,760 feet long on each side, covered 13+ acres. • Outer casings white limestone polished ,fitted to an angle of 51 degrees ,51 minutes • Whoever built the Pyramid used a technologly that we still do not possess today to cut, move, and cement stones to such preciseness. • Has survived for over 4,000 years thru wars, earthquakes, empires, storms, and pillagers. • Who built it? When built? How? Why? We will find out. Isa.19:19-20 • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Szis8boGCYQ&feature=related Part 3 Who & How? • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHNLC8SJ3n4 Part 4 Scientific Features • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S385vwlRM4c&feature=related Part 5 Architect –God, Builder –Philetus,Shem, Melchizadek, Purpose, Facts, A Story to Tell – The Divine Plan.
Scientific Mathematical Features of GP • Pi π - Twice the height of the Pyramid, divided by the distance around the base equals the mathematical value termed π (pi) to the nearest 1/10,000. Only recently has man been able to calculate pi to this accuracy. Pi=3.141592+ π • • The Great Pyramid’s unique proportions solve one of man’s most difficult mathematical challenges—the “squaring of the circle”. When the radius of a circle equals the height of the pyramid, then the circumference of that circle equals the perimeter of the pyramid’s base. • • The orientation of the Great Pyramid is within 3/4 inch of true north. A modern magnetic compass is usually far less accurate. • • The measurement used by the builders, the “pyramid cubit,” when divided into the base length of the Great Pyramid is 365.242 pyramid cubits. This is precisely the number for the days in one year.
Earth’s Precessional Cycle = 25,770 years Astronomers know the Earth behaves exactly the same as a "spinning-top." It's just that one complete wobble - where the top moved in a backwards circle in maybe a second - takes the Earth about 25,770 years to do. !
Geography • Orientation is important when planning a building, Great Pyramid accurately oriented to True North. • "In that day there shall be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border,…and it shall be for a sign and for a witness to the Lord of hosts."Isaiah 19:19,20 • How can something be in the middle and also be at the border? First of all, the Great Pyramid is a monument situated near Gizeh in Egypt. The word “Gizeh” in Arabic means “border.” Henry Mitchell, Chief Hydrographer of the United States Coast Survey discovered an additional clue to this riddle while working on a report for the Suez Canal in 1868. He noticed that the Nile Delta is pie-shaped. Plotting the sector on a map, he found that the Great Pyramid is at its exact center. situation than any It is at the border of upper and lower Egypt, and it is at the border of the sector-shaped Nile Delta—yet it is in the midst of Egypt. • Great Pyramid’s meridian is natural zero meridian of the Earth. Located exactly at the Center of the Earth’s Mass. Points toward Jesus Birthplace- Bethlehem.
Astronomy • Distance to the Sun If one were to climb the pyramid, for every 10 feet of progress toward the middle of the Pyramid, he would climb 9 feet toward the top. This suggests 10 to the 9th power. Multiplying the total height of the Pyramid by 10 to the 9th, the answer is 91,840,000 miles, the approximate distance to the sun. That is 1,000 million Pyramids would reach to the sun. • Duration of Solar Year The length of the Pyramid’s base side is 761 feet. In the Pyramid measure, that is 365.242 pyramid cubits – precisely the number of days in a year. • Entrance Passage is a pole star pointer that points straight to the North Star.

Faith needed - Bible & Gods Word • "In that day there shall be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border,…and it shall be for a sign and for a witness to the Lord of hosts."Isaiah 19:19,20 • Biblical Faith Definition-A Personal Belief, Mental Acceptance & Acknowledgement Of God’s Existence: • 1. Heb 11:1,6 Assurance of things hoped for conviction of things not seen • 2. 2 Cor 4:18 We look at not the things seen, but at things not seen • 3. 2 Cor 5:7 we walk by faith not sight • 4. Jn 20:27-29 how blessed are they who have not seen but believe • We need faith for our belief in God and Christ • An examination of this wonderful structure—its size, accuracy, and internal arrangement, reveals an outline of the Plan of God, past, present, and future.
GP - 3 Prophetic Conditions Part 2 • Must be in the middle of the Land of Egypt. • Must be at the Border. • Must be a Sign and a Witness unto the Lord in the “Day of the Lord”. Smythe,Taylor,Edgar Brothers, Seiss,Newton,Russell all recognized the measurements as prophetically tied to Bible Chronology. When we investigate the time-measurements of the GP, we find all the time-features or prophetic “days” mentioned by Daniel are “accurately marked.” Daniel saw these things about 1600 years after the GP was built and was told to “shut up the words and seal the book “unto the”Time of the End” Dan 12:4 None would understand until 1799(4000 Years Later). Only those declared to be wise. Symbolisms and Time measurements of GP corroborate the Scriptural Divine Plan in every particular. Most prophetic prominent teaching of the GP is the symbolism of the Top Stone. Clearly referred to as a representation of the Son of God, Jesus Christ.He is the “Stone” builders rejected, but which afterward became the “Head of the Corner”-Chief Corner Stone.
Pyramid Measurements and Calculations Corroborate Bible Chronology • The Great Pyramid shows the following dates of significant Biblical events. They are an exact confirmation of the Bible's own chronology. These dates are arrived at in numerous ways, the details of which can be read in the most definitive book on the subject, "Great Pyramid Passages" by John and Morton Edgar, from which this list was compiled. (Available from Portland Area Bible Students) Many dates, such as Jesus' resurrection in A.D. 33, are shown in several different places. More dates could be given. This is a brief compilation. http://www.youtube.com/user/4jace#p/c/7ED81840A71CB666/5/g3-887UYh-U Part 6 Passages & Chambers Representation, Bible –Pyramid Similarities

Prophetic Proof – Bible in Stone • The striking religious symbolism of the Great Pyramid and it’s amazing corroborations of the Bible and chronology have prompted the name “The Bible in Stone.” The following chart will illustrate this corroborative testimony. • The black lines of the chart break down Bible history and prophesy. When imposed over the passage systems of the Great Pyramid, note the amazing correspondencies of history with these passage systems. The names for these passages provide clues as to the symbolisms intended by the Pyramid’s architect. The most important features of God’s plan were carefully written into the blue print of the Great Pyramid. These ages are not arbitrarily drawn, but precise measurements of the chambers and passageways coincide inch by inch (pyramid inch = one year) with man’s history as detailed by the Bible.

Volume 3 Foreword Page. ii-iii October 1,1916 http://www.youtube.com/user/4jace#p/c/7ED81840A71CB666/6/tlGeVYqwPRo The Great Pyramid of Egypt discussed in this Volume has not lost any of its interest to the author. Its Descending Passage still represents figuratively the downward course of mankind under the reign of sin and death. The First Ascending Passage still represents the Law Dispensation--God's Covenant with Israel made at Sinai and the course of that people under the domination of that Law. The Grand Gallery still represents the lofty heights of the teachings of Christ and His followers during this Gospel Age. The step in the upper end of the Grand Gallery still represents a marked change in the affairs of the world, lifting man to a higher plane. The connection between the top of the Grand Gallery and the spaces above the King's Chamber still represents the spiritual presence of our Lord in the Harvest of this Age, beginning with 1874. We have never attempted to place the Great Pyramid, sometimes called the Bible in Stone, on a parallel or equality with the Word of God as represented by the Old and New Testament Scriptures--the latter stand pre-eminent always as the authority. We do, however, still believe that the structure of this Pyramid, so different from that of all other pyramids, was designed of the Lord and intended to be a Pyramid and a witness in the midst and on the border of the land of Egypt. (Isaiah 19:19) It certainly tells a very different story from any other art or relic handed down from its remote times. Its wonderful corroboration of the Divine Plan of the Ages is astounding to everybody who really grasps it. .
