Hundreds of books have been written about the Great Pyramid and the meaning of its inner passageways and chamber system. There have also been nearly as many arguments pertaining to its purpose and date of construction; ranging from its being built as a tomb for the Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops Gr.), a landing beacon for aliens from space, a cosmic reservoir, a temple of initiation, to a bible in stone. In spite of evidences that clearly show otherwise, the Great Pyramid is most often explained as having been built solely as a tomb, with most Egyptologists agreeing that it was constructed sometime around 2600 BC. Adam Rutherford founded the only institute of pyramidology in 1940. This institution’s main objective was to make known the great Divine Revelation that is believed by some to be enshrined within the Great Pyramid — scientific, religious and prophetic.
“Pyramidology is the science which co-ordinates, combines and unifies science and religion, and is thus the meeting place of the two. When the Great Pyramid is properly understood and universally studied, false religious and erroneous scientific theories will alike vanish, and true religion and true science will be demonstrated to be harmonious.”
John Taylor (1781-1864), an astronomer and mathematician, made one of the first and most far-reaching conclusions about the origin and purpose of the pyramid. By taking measurements made by Colonel Howard-Vyse (1784-1853) during his excavations of the pyramid in 1837, Taylor established the pi proportion in the pyramid. It was Taylor’s observations of the pi proportion that led to the discovery of the base unit of measurement — the pyramid inch. It became more and more evident that the builders of the pyramid could not have used the British foot in their calculations, thus he had to find a unit that would fit the pyramid in whole numbers while at the same time retaining the pi proportion.
Fortunately (for Taylor), Sir John F.W. Herschel (1792-1871), a prominent British astronomer, had just suggested a unit half a human’s hairbreadth longer than the British inch as a unit based upon the actual size of the earth. The only standard of measure that could be reliable was the polar axis of the earth that a recent British survey had indicated at 7898.78 miles. This would equal 500,500,000 British inches or an even 500,000,000 using the unit 1.0011 as the standard of measure — the pyramid inch. Half the measure of fifty such inches, exactly one ten-millionth of the polar axis would give a very useful cubit of measurement of 25 inches.
Coincidentally, these were the same cubit and inch that Taylor had found fit the Great Pyramid in multiples of 366. The fact that this figure is not arbitrary was confirmed by the International Geophysical Year 1957-58 geodetic research with orbiting vehicles, which obtained a figure of 3949.89 miles for the polar radius of the earth. Divided by 10,000,000 British inches, this gives 25.02614284, or the length of Taylor and Newton’s sacred cubit correct to the third point of decimal…
Taylor, in presenting his theory that the purpose of the pyramid had been for the preservation and passing on of the knowledge contained therein, was met with incredible criticism. No civilization was known at that time that could have had such knowledge as to the true shape of the planet and its motion. Taylor was also a religious man, deeply studied in Old Testament script and thus came to the conclusion that whoever had built the pyramid did so under Divine guidance. Taylor’s work, The Great Pyramid: Why was it Built & Who Built It? was greatly rejected, until, nearing his death, he found the support of Charles Piazzi Smyth, the Astronomer Royal of Scotland.
Piazzi Smyth was treated no better than Taylor. Smyth concluded that the sacred cubit within the pyramid was the same used by Moses in constructing the Tabernacle and by Noah when he built the Ark, thus the British had inherited this “sacred cubit” down through the ages. Taylor had ventured to say that the British were descendants of the Lost Tribes of Israel, which even today is written about within prophecies regarding the end of days. Smyth’s work contributed greatly to the amount of scientific measurements made. He discovered the granite leaf containing the sacred cubit and the displacement factor of 286.1022, allowing W.F. Petrie to excavate and pinpoint pi. His inability to account for such advanced mathematics contained within a monument of such antiquity led him to attribute this science to Divine Wisdom.
Mixing scientific discoveries with prophetic conclusions led one member of the Royal Society of Edinburgh to publicly ridicule Smyth. “The whole of Professor Smyth’s theory about the Great Pyramid is a series of strange hallucinations, which a few weak women believe, and perhaps a few womanly men, but no more.”
There was a succession of pyramidologists who made attempts to prove the prophetic timetable theory or “Bible in Stone” theory of the pyramid to fit in with prophecies of the Bible. This history was said to have commenced with Adam in 4000 BC, ending with the Day of Judgment. According to Morton Edgar, the end of the 1000-year judgment would occur in the year 2914 AD. The entrance into the antechamber was believed to mark the First World War in 1914 and the end of the Kings Chamber indicted the year 1953. However, as various prophetic dates went by with no reappearance of Christ, the theory of the Great Pyramid as a prophetic calendar became widely discredited.
The basic question arose as to whether the Egyptians could have possessed such vast scientific knowledge. Since that question could not truly be answered, Taylor, Smyth, Menzies, and others, put forth the concept that the builders had been divinely guided, thus creating the theory that the pyramid was in fact a prophetic timetable of the history of humanity. From all the information and theories that have been studied and restudied, there appears to be only one conclusion. Who built the pyramid and why remains a mystery.
The answer to this mystery is contained within the problem itself. We may consider our approach to the problem neither from a strictly scientific or religious viewpoint, rather, join the two together, and as Adam Rutherford stated: “…true religion and true science will be demonstrated to be harmonious.”
The Great Pyramid as a Tomb?
Once the pyramid was completed it was entirely sealed. We know this from the exploration of al-Mamoun, the son of the great Caliph Harun al-Rashid. Islam had become a great empire and under the caliphate of al-Mamoun (813-833) began the rapid assimilation of science and technology.
Legends spoke of vast quantities of treasure within the Great Pyramid with a secret door whereby one could enter, said to be on the north face. In 820 AD, al-Mamoun set out to find this storehouse of treasure and knowledge. His workmen searched in vain for the entrance, thus they forced their way through the rock.
“Hammer and chisel would not dent the huge blocks of limestone, no matter how many blacksmiths stood ready to sharpen them, so a more primitive but effective system was used; fires were built close to the blocks of masonry, and when these became red hot they were doused with cold vinegar until they cracked. Battering rams knocked out the fragmented stone.”
[North Face of Pyramid] Excavating a passage nearly 100 feet in length, al-Mamoun was at the point of giving up when one of the workmen heard a sound as if a stone had been dislodged. Renewing their efforts the workmen finally broke through into a small passage. To their amazement they found the passageway blocked by a total of ten limestone blocks that they were able to remove. Moving up the descending passage they discovered the door, which when pushed lightly, was easily opened. They also found what appeared to be another passage that was blocked by a large red granite plug. Unable to hammer out the granite, they dug around and discovered two more red granite blocks. Having excavated around these blocks it was discovered that twelve limestone blocks also blocked this ascending passage. Each of these blocks were easily broken and cleared and the workmen continued in their exploration of the pyramid. Eventually they entered into a room whose walls, floor and ceiling were of highly polished red granite. No treasure was ever found, only a large lidless and empty sarcophagus that was of dark chocolate granite. To appease his men, legend claims al-Mamoun placed some gold in the pyramid equal to the wages due.
The fact that the ascending and descending passageways were completely blocked until the time of al-Mamoun’s entrance into the pyramid, clearly shows that no one else could have entered the tomb and taken any treasure. The fact that the sarcophagus was lidless and empty also clearly shows the pyramid had not been constructed as a tomb. Some centuries later, a series of earthquakes would send the people of Cairo to the pyramid who removed almost the entire 22 acres of outer casing stones. The Mosque of Sultan Hasan, built in 1356, was constructed almost in its entirety from the casing stones.
Architect of the Great Pyramid & Date of Construction
“In that day shall there be an altar to the Lord in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord.”
This verse from Isaiah may indeed refer to the Great Pyramid as well as to the plateau upon which it was constructed — Gizeh, which is the Arabic word for edge or border.
“Since the official name of the Pyramid, the Great Pyramid of Giza means, in English, the Great Pyramid of the Border, the answer to the apparently contradictory definition of Isaiah is found in the Great Pyramid. The only spot on the face of the earth that completely answers this description, both geometrically and geographically, is the precise place where the Great Pyramid stands.”
The root forms of the word “pyramid” help us understand the evolutionary trend as found within the passageways and chambers. Py is Hebrew for “foretell” and Pyre is Greek meaning “light or revelation”. This is the Greek form of the ancient Chaldean Ur, also the Hebrew word for “light”. Mid (Midos) is the Greek form of the Chaldean/Hebrew, Middan, meaning “measure”. Therefore, the Great Pyramid contains, in some form, a measure of “revelation or light”.
David Davidson, an agnostic, engineer, architect, mathematician and historian, minutely studied the pyramid in an attempt to discredit any notion that it had been constructed through Divine guidance. His attempt failed. In his book, The Great Pyramid: Its Divine Message, Davidson states that the designer was
…Projecting his knowledge into a future state of civilization that could interpret his intention. He foresaw that the contemporary language in which the facts could be conveyed would lose its meaning and idiomatic significance. It might be lost entirely or at least be capable of mistranslation or misrepresentation. This foresight has certainly been justified.
The “language” used by the architect of the pyramid was of such a nature that it could never be altered — the precise language of scientific mathematical calculations and measurement. Through such measurements we discover a spiritual evolution with the appearance of several Divine Messengers, beginning with Adam.
Taking the extended floor line of the Queen’s Chamber, where it intersects with the ascending passageway, provides the point where measurements begin — a chronological zero point. The number of pyramid inches from the zero point to the intersection of the projected ceiling line of the ascending passage with the outside arris line equals 3999.99999 or the year 4000 BC.
By extending the arris line to a point where the floor line would then intersect with this line there are an additional 121.32143 p”, which when added to 3999.99999 provides the date for Adam in 4122 BC.
Scholars were amazed to find the orientation of construction made precisely to the four cardinal points of the compass. The architect would have had knowledge of astronomy and the geographical length of the earth. This known geographical length could then be linked within a second of movement towards fixed positions of star groups. One such group formed the constellation Draco, whose stars were circumpolar around 5000 BC. The alpha (designation of brightness) star was called Thuban of alpha Draconis, and was within 10’ of the exact pole.
The position of this star was 30 degrees of north latitude and could be seen both day and night from the bottom of the central passage. Alpha Draconis would only be seen in such a position twice during the BC era, 3434 and 2144. Indication within the pyramid showing salt encrusted stones within the Queen’s Chamber, and the writings of Josephus, clearly show the pyramid to be an antediluvian structure.
Pyramid dating shows the advent of Noah to be 2500 BC, thus the only date for the construction of the pyramid would be 3434 BC. There are two separate methods of confirming this date. (1) By taking the ceiling line of the descending passage and projecting it to a point where it would intersect with a vertical line stemming directly from the intersection of the projected ceiling line of the ascending passage and projected outside arris line of the pyramid.
The number of pyramid inches from the zero point to the intersection of the outside arris line and ceiling line of the ascending passage is 3999.99999. Taking the ceiling line and intersecting it with a 90 degree angle to a point where the vertical line meets the base pavement there are 566.56564 p” at its upper point. Subtracting this number from 3999.99999 gives us 3433.43435 p” from the zero point, equaling 3434 BC. (2) The ceiling of the uppermost overlay of the Grand Gallery is comprised of 36 stones, each stone symbolizing one century. The length of the seventh overlay from the north wall to the south wall is 1833.43435 and when added to the 3600 equals 3433.43435. Subtracting this number from 6000, the six spiritual work days equals 566.56564. Again, subtracting this number from 3999.99999 equals 3434 BC.
Meticulous measurements made by Taylor, Petrie, Smyth, Davidson and others, show a remarkable understanding of astronomy, geography and mathematics by the builders. For what purpose would they incorporate such mathematical calculations to provide the value of pi, the number of days in a sidereal, orbital, and solar year, the weight of the earth, distance from the earth to the moon, and the polar diameter of the earth, if not to indicate the importance of the measurements of the pyramids passage and chamber system.
We have so far noted that the pyramid was not intended as a tomb, and that measurements have provided the year for the advent of Adam, which is the point where all known history begins. Measurements have also provided the advent of Noah and the year in which the pyramids construction was begun. We need to ask ourselves whether the pyramid was actually constructed by the Egyptians or some other group of people. Professor Edgerton believed there were important influences that reached Egypt from Mesopotamia just before the beginning of the First Dynasty. Petrie saw the arrival of people from outside of Egypt. Cyril Aldred stated that “it is difficult to deny that the early Egyptian peasant villages received something very considerable from outside, but not by conquest.” Basil Steward, a theosophist, stated that “there is no more reason to believe that because the Pyramid stands in Egypt it was built by Egyptians than that the modern Egyptians built the Aswan Dam…The seeds of Egypt’s greatness were sown by a few colonists…probably a band of Asiatic or Euphratean travelers with a very advanced scientific and mathematical knowledge, who entered Egypt and organized the erection of the Great Pyramid,” that they were the design of a single individual “who belonged to the Adamic White civilization endowed with moral, scientific and cultural attainments far in advance of all other contemporary civilizations.” Petrie stated it was the skill of one man, which is interesting, as it was he who was skeptical concerning those who suggested the pyramid’s construction as being divinely guided and “arrived at spectacular mystical results by applying very small units of measurement to a very large structure.”
Arabic manuscripts state that the Great Pyramid was constructed prior to the flood and similar traditions of Josephus show it to have been constructed by the Sethites. Using the established date provided in the pyramid for Adam in 4122 BC, we are able to determine the dates for the birth of his descendants, i.e., Seth, in 3992 BC and subsequently thereafter with each succeeding descendant. Thus the date for the birth of Enoch in 3500 BC is 500 years after the advent of the Adamic cycle beginning in 4000 BC. This leaves 5,500 years in the overall 6000-year plan for creation within the Adamic cycle. There are some interesting verses regarding the 5,500 years, or five and one-half days.
God said to Adam, “I have ordained on this earth days and years, and thou and thy seed shall dwell and walk in it, until the days and years are fulfilled: when I send the Word that created thee…Yea, the Word that will again save thee when the five days and a half are fulfilled.” But when Adam heard these words from God, and of the great five days and a half, he did not understand the meaning of them…And Adam wept, and prayed God to explain it to him. Then God in His mercy for Adam who was made after His own image and similitude, explained to him, that these were 5000 and 500 years; and how One would then come and save him and his seed.
Adam had received the full revelation from God, however, due to the peoples lack of understanding, was only able to reveal a small portion of that plan. He was the first of many who would teach a portion of God’s Revelation.
Enoch was a Sethite, the seventh generation of Adam, and according to Josephus, the Sethites were the inventers of that particular sort of wisdom that is concerned with the heavenly bodies and their order. A brief description of Egyptian dynastic history will show that Enoch was the architect of the Great Pyramid.
The unification of Upper and Lower Egypt is said to have occurred between 3500 BC and 3000 BC. Variations in dating the dynastic periods of Egyptian history are not uncommon, Manetho’s list of kings, prepared in the third century BC, cannot be held highly reliable. He does provide the name of the first king as being Atum or Atum-Ra. The infusion of a new and greater knowledge into the Nile Delta Region had not been attained through conquest, rather, by a race of people who had achieved greater moral, scientific and cultural achievements. This whole process was accomplished by what is referred to as the Council of Seven: Atum (Adam) being the first, and Imhotep (Enoch) being the seventh. The area of the Tigro-Euphratean River Valley would evolve into the flourishing Sumerian civilization. It is this same council that goes into Egypt and teaches the revelation of Adam unto the people. The Egyptians name the “seventh” as Imhotep who is credited with the construction of the Great Pyramid. Here was a race of people who had entered Egypt from the east and as stated by D. Davidson; “this fact now identifies the architect or engineer…as belonging to the Adamic race.”
Little information is provided regarding the material used in the construction of the Great Pyramid. There were, in fact, four different types of stone used: limestone, marble, red granite, and chocolate or black granite. The capstone and the sarcophagus were made of this dark granite, which is not native to Egypt.
On the floor of the Main Chamber, on the exact center line of the structure, dividing it into eastern and western halves, stands the famous coffer, the only article of furniture in the whole interior of the structure. An open, lidless empty chest, cut from a single piece of dark or black granite, brilliantly polished and as sonorous as a silver bell. This stone is not native to Egypt, nor for that matter, anywhere within a reasonable distance of the structure. Only two possible sources have been ascertained as a source for this particular stone, the ancient and mysterious Lost Continent of Atlantis, and the Great Lakes region of the United States of America.
At some point during the third millennium BC travelers visited the Great Lakes region from the Eastern hemisphere. Their purpose? To cut and transport specific granite needed in the construction of the Great Pyramid.
Around the perimeter of the pyramid base there has been located at least five boat pits. This puts to rest the notion that the boats were used to carry the pharaoh’s body during the funeral procession, a “day boat” and a “night boat”. While most of the pits were empty, in 1954, a dismantled ship was discovered intact. It was reassembled and is displayed in a specially built museum near the pyramid. This ship does not match the traditional depictions of a day boat. Similar in shape, important details are lacking, such as a box like structure on the bow and appropriate decorations painted on the boat as well as the oars. We also now know that the Great Pyramid was not constructed as a tomb for a pharaoh.
The sarcophagus, made from the dark granite, rests lidless and empty within an empty chamber. Scientific research found that all the passageways are left of the north-south centerline 286.1 p”. This represents humankind’s fall from innocence during the age of Adam. This period of time is given as 6000 years, at which time, humankind may again return to the centerline. The sarcophagus sits on the centerline and extends westward 19.2238 pyramid inches and for a very singular purpose.
A second configuration of stars, in connection with the pole star being directly over the North Pole, occurred only once before the time of Christ in 2144 BC. The star, Alcyone, was within the grouping of stars known as the Pleiades of the constellation Taurus at a 90-degree angle to the pole star. A line drawn from Alcyone would directly connect with the scored line, which is at a right angle to the descending passage with its angle of slope pointing directly to the pole star. In ancient times Alcyone was known as the “foundation stone” and is thus used in providing the date for Abraham. All the Manifestations after Adam have been descendants of Abraham’s seed.
That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven, and as the sand which is upon the seashore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies. And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because thou hast obeyed my voice.
Historically, Abraham had three wives: Sarah, Hagar and Keturah. From Keturah, six sons were born and from their descendants appeared Krishna, Zoroaster and Buddha.
Unto Abraham’s second wife, Hagar, was born Ishmael, from whom descended Muhammad and the twelve princes or Imams. Another descendant of Ishmael was Siyyid Ali-Muhammad, who founded the Bábí faith.
From Sarah comes the Davidic line of descent with Jesus of Nazareth, the suffering Messiah and Bahá’u’lláh, the reigning Messiah.
According to Jewish literature, the restoration of their Temple must be accomplished, as well as the return of their High Priest.
The rebuilding of the temple must always be awaited (Sab.12b and other passages). God will erect the future Temple even before the kingdom of David has been reestablished and his descendants restored to office (Yer.M.S.5:2,56a).
This writing clearly shows that the complete restoration of the Temple will be accomplished prior to the descendants of David being restored to office. This would also include the Covenant and the return of the High Priesthood. When the second Temple was destroyed by the legions of Titus in 70 AD, the Jews were still under the curse as given within the Covenant of Moses. This covenant consisted of three parts: the blessing, the curse and re-gathering, which is depicted in the pyramid at the start of the ascending passage with the three red granite plugs. Further up the passage there are also four distinct “girdle stones” that are made of red granite. The ascending passage opens into a large gallery with seven overlapping courses of masonry. By using distances measured from the granite plugs to the four girdle stones and subtracting that figure from the distance of the overlays in the gallery, we can discover the dates for Moses, Krishna, Zoroaster and Buddha.
The date for the Exodus of Moses may be found in two ways. The first is the distance from the zero point to the beginning of the first red granite plug, which is 1455.78210. This measurement equals 1456 BC, the year of the Exodus from out of Egypt. We can also measure from the first red granite plug to the first girdle stone, which is 422.49259. When we subtract this figure from the distance of the first overlay from the north wall to the south wall, we again are given the same date of 1456 BC.
The second girdle stone is for Krishna. Subtracting the distance from the start of the ascending passage to the second girdle stone we have 657.73602, and when subtracted from the distance of the second overlay, 1870.39586, we arrive at 1212.65984 or the year 1213 BC.
The distance from the start of the ascending passage to the third girdle stone is 863.80201. When we subtract this figure from the distance of the third overlay, 18763.80201, we have the date for Zoroaster in 1000 BC. Zoroaster appeared at the mid-way point within the 6000 year Adamic cycle, symbolized within the third overlay by the “V” grooves, which are three inches in and three inches out, each inch representing 1000 years. From the Pahlavi Texts we read:
Nevertheless I have created thee at the present time, in the middle period, for it is three thousand years from the days of Gayomard till now, and from now till the resurrection are the three thousand years that remain; therefore, I have created thee in the middle.
For the advent of Buddha, we subtract the distance from the start of the ascending passage to the fourth girdle stone, 1069.8680 from the distance of the fourth overlay, 1856.77471, which is equal to the year 788 BC.
Jesus of Nazareth, the Suffering Messiah
The Book of Daniel provides the date for the coming of the suffering Messiah.
Seventy weeks are decreed concerning your people and your holy city…from the going forth of the word to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of an anointed one, a prince, there shall be seven weeks…And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week; and for half of the week he shall cause sacrifice and offering to cease.
Each day is equivalent to one year, thus the seventy weeks equals 490 total years Subtracting the date for the restoration and rebuilding of Jerusalem in 457 BC, we have 33 years, the age of Jesus when he fulfilled his mission and was crucified. As there is no zero year, the date then for his crucifixion was in 34 AD. To make sure there can be no mistake regarding this date, the prophecy was also divided into seven weeks (49 years), 62 weeks (434 years), and one week divided in half, making two (2), three and a half year periods. The 49 years was the length of time for the rebuilding of Jerusalem bringing us to the year 408 BC. Adding the 434 years, we arrive at the year 27 AD, the year John the Baptist began his ministry. Three and a half years later, John baptized Jesus, and three and a half years after his baptism, Jesus was crucified on the cross in 34 AD at the age of 33.
The pyramid gives us the same dates. From the zero point, measuring northwards towards the gallery to the first seam in the walls, there are 26.21789 p” or March 21, 27 AD. Another three and a half inches brings us to the year 30 AD, the baptism of Jesus. The crucifixion of Jesus is calculated by a plumb line extended downward from the first overlay in the gallery and is three and a half inches from the north wall or 33.21789 from the zero point equaling the date of March 21, 34 AD.
As in all instances concerning the names of God’s Messengers, Jesus the Christ applied the title of “Praised One” to the next Manifestation. Paracletos or intercessor, as well as Comforter or Counselor, may be applicable to any one of the Manifestations. Such words convey one who is an intermediary, to give instruction, teaching, guidance, forewarning, to refresh or renew. Jesus prophesied the specific name in which the succeeding Manifestation would appear, Ahmad, meaning “Praised One”, or Muhammad, which means “Highly Praised”. Muhammad received the Holy Spirit in a cave at Hira in an area known as Paran; and “he lived in the wilderness of Paran”, which is defined as that area in which Ishmael lived. Ishmael was the son of Abraham by his wife Hagar. Muhammad’s arrival in the wilderness of Paran signaled the spiritual dawn for the Arabian people.
The Great Pyramid confirms the advent of Muhammad within the Gallery of Prophets and the “grotto” that is located along the well shaft. The length of the sixth overlay is 1842.85714, and by multiplying this number by seven and then dividing it by ten, we have 1290. This is the number of lunar years prior to the second advent of Messiah ben David, or the “Christ”, and gives us the date, September 7, 612 AD. This was the year Muhammad made his proclamation to his family. Taking the same overlay measurement and subtracting 1260 years we get 582.85714. Adding the distance from the zero point to the start of the Gallery of Prophets, 29.71789, we have 612.57503. This equals the year of Muhammad’s public proclamation in the city of Mecca on July 30, 613 AD. The reason the above is divided by ten is due to the difference between Muhammad’s proclamation and his flight from Mecca to Medina in 622.
In the grotto there are 126 polished stones, each representing ten years. This again provides the 1260 years from Muhammad’s proclamation to the appearance of the promised Qa’im in Islam.
Returning to the ascending passage at the north wall of the Gallery of Prophets we come across a large step. Continuing further, there is the antechamber and then the kings chamber where rests the sarcophagus.
When Moses instructed the people to build the tabernacle he had the Temple divided into two rooms. The outer room was the Sanctuary where the blood of an unblemished animal, sacrificed upon the altar, was sprinkled on the walls. The inner room, or Holy of Holies, was where the Ark of the Covenant was kept.
In the twenty-fourth chapter of Matthew, the disciples of Jesus wanted to know when he would return. They asked him three questions: (1) When would he return, (2) what would be the sign of his coming, and (3) when the close of the age would be. Jesus warns them of false “christs” coming in his name and then he tells them to turn to the Book of Daniel (Matthew 25:15, Daniel 8:13,14). A time frame is given of 2300 years and then the sanctuary would be restored to its rightful state. From the order given in 457 to the birth of Jesus there are 456 years. When subtracted from the 2300 years we have the date of 1844 AD.
The pyramid depicts the Temple, with the Great Step or Altar, the antechamber or Sanctuary, the Kings Chamber or Holy of Holies and the Sarcophagus or Ark of the Covenant. Pyramidologists are in agreement that the date given at the base of the altar is March 21, 1844. There were also those who realized that a new time scale began at this point, theorizing that one pyramid inch equaled one month of 30 days.
At the point of the north edge of the Great Step the architect of the Great Pyramid very clearly expanded his scale for the balance of the interior works…Hence from the edge of the Great Step onward a new scale of measurement must prevail in the survey that of one inch to one month rather than an inch to the year as heretofore.
There is also a “hidden step” that indicated a cancellation of the previous scale.
That the ‘hidden step’ does not produce its own floor-scale is evident from the following facts:
(a) it is an upward step whose height has already been taken into account in calculating the upward Great Step’s timescale, and (b)…Thus, the ‘hidden step’ can only have one step-function left to it – the cancellation of the previous floor-scale at the point indicated by the designer…
While some have pointed out a timescale change, they had the scale incorrect. In 1844, the Báb made his proclamation and instituted a new calendar. From the start of the Altar, each pyramid inch represents one Bahá’í month, calculated as 19 days, plus a fraction, thus 19.22328 equals one pyramid inch. When measured from the start of the Altar stone to the entrance of the Holy of Holies, the number of pyramid inches equals 366.93970. Divided by 19.22328, we arrive at 19 years and 31 days. When added to the vernal equinox on March 21, 1844, the date is given when Bahá’u’lláh, the “Glory of God”, entered the Garden of Ridván and made his proclamation – April 21, 1863. This date in the Great Pyramid corresponds precisely to the prophecy given in the Book of Daniel, chapter twelve, verse eleven, as well as to historical documentation of that time period.
The Gallery of Prophets brings us to the Sanctuary and Holy of Holies that represent the reestablishment of the Temple. The Báb and his revelation are represented as the Sanctuary and Bahá’u’lláh and his revelation are represented as the Holy of Holies. These two Manifestations are the Temple referred to by Paul that is not made by hands.
The Great Pyramid of Gizeh brings together science and religion in a manner that can be fully understood by all.
Through scientific measurement, the pyramid shows how the Covenant of Abraham was fulfilled. The entire world has been blessed through the teachings of the Manifestations and the pyramid provides the dates for Their appearance, from Moses through Bahá’u’lláh. The sarcophagus, symbolizing the Covenant of Bahá’u’lláh, sits on the centerline, bringing humanity back to the Everlasting Covenant of God. On April 21, 1879, Bahá’u’lláh completed his “Book of Laws” and by his covenant the Davidic Kingship, promised by God to last forever, was continued.
