In studying ancient history the term "The Seven Ancient Wonders of the World" appears many times. These wonders included:
1. The Statute of Zeus at Olympia
2. The Colossus on the Greek Island of Rhodes
3. The Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
4. The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus in Ionia
5. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon
6. The Pharaoh's Lighthouse at Alexandria
7. The Great Pyramid of Egypt
Nothing remain of six of the seven wonders except some pieces of column from the Temple Diana and King Mausolus Tomb. These reside in the British Museum. Only the Great Pyramid at Giza remains in all its glory and mystery, standing as a sentinel for all to wonder at.
Such questions as who designed it, who built it, and why was it built are still unanswered questions. Another question that has risen in the past few years is: "Is it a sign of good or a sign of evil?" The New Age Movement use the pyramid as one of their symbols as do the Illuminati. But does this make the pyramid, or the symbol of the pyramid, evil?
Down through the eons of time many books have been written about the pyramid. The pyramid has been called God's prophesy in stone, the Stone Bible, God's endtime witness, God's plan for the ages in stone, and many, many more too numerous to mention. This book, nor any other book, cannot answer all the above questions, nor will we even attempt to try.
When we think one question has been answered concerning the pyramid, it gives rise to many more questions. The one thing that is absolute: no construction firm on earth, or all of them put together, can duplicate this magnificent edifice. No architect could design it, nor could any engineer say how to build it.
The pyramid contains two million, six hundred thousand hewn stones. These stones weigh from six thousand pounds to one hundred and forty thousand pounds. The total weight of the building is six and one-half million tons. The foundation of the Pyramid was leveled, and is cut eight inches in solid rock. Over the millenniums of time it has not settled one-quarter of an inch.
The pyramid is four-sided. The length of each base is seven hundred and sixty feet long and covers more than thirteen acres of land, or approximately five hundred, seventy-seven thousand, six hundred square feet. The height of the pyramid is four hundred and fifty-four feet without the capstone that was never set in place.
The orientation of the great Pyramid sets true North, South, East, and West. No other building on earth is placed so accurately. Even with today's modern scientific surveying equipment, man is not able to establish their buildings with such precise accuracy which lines up perfectly in all four directions.
The pyramid contains such mathematical wonders as Pi or the figure 3.141592. This figure tells us how to figure the circumference of a circle from its radius. The discovery of PI was credited to the Greeks in the sixteenth century, but this figure was concealed in the construction of the pyramid hundreds of years earlier. Mathematicians determined the distance from the earth to the sun by taking measurements in the pyramid. Many other mathematical wonders are hidden in the construction of the pyramid.
Over the centuries it has been determined that the Pyramid was not a tomb. It contained no hieroglyphic paintings or drawings anywhere in the Pyramid to give a clue of who built it, or why it was built. All the other pyramids built around the world were used primarily as burial sights and contain many writings and drawings. From these writings and drawings, much can be determined as to why they were built, and who they were built for. All this remains a mystery concerning the Pyramid at Giza.
When modern man cannot come to an understanding of something, they assume it is evil and used for evil purposes. We are also aware that man can use that which was created for good for his evil purposes. The basic idea that the Pyramid was evil was introduced when John Taylor published a book called "The Devil is the Author of the Great Pyramid". John Taylor was then president of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, or as we know it today, The Jehovah Witness. The idea of the Pyramid being evil has crept its way into many minds. We need to realize and understand that satan is not an initiator, but an imitator. He only tries to take credit for what God does. Since there is no other structure on earth like the Great Pyramid, satan could not have been its author because he had nothing to imitate.
The Great Pyramid appears on the back of the United States Dollar. The Capstone is portrayed detached above the Pyramid. In the Capstone is an eye. Around the Pyramid appears the Latin words: ANNUIT COEPTIS NOVUS CEDO SECLORUM. This means "A New Order of the Ages Has Begun Anew". Many credit the eye as the eye of the "Illuminati", and that the Latin quotation is the saying of the New Age Movement.
The Dollar Bill was designed during the Civil War in 1862. This was the time when all America was calling upon God, both North and South, to put an end to brother fighting against brother. The eye in the Capstone is the all seeing eye of God overseeing the construction of His body that is growing up into the head. This has been perverted by many who would have us believe this was designed for evil. These have overlooked how far this nation has fallen from their belief in God.
We are informed in God's Word that when His body is complete, He will then set Himself, the Capstone, in place as Head over His body. The New Order of the Ages will then truly begin anew, "His New Order"; and He will rule and reign with His chosen people one thousand years.
One of the unique facts about the Pyramid at Giza is its passage systems. This type of passage system, or any other passage system, is not present in any other pyramid.
I realize when I write this book it is only one in a long list of books that has been written on the Pyramid. This is the third book I have written on the Pyramid. The first two being "Pyramid, Symbol of the Body of Christ" and "White Stone". These books were written about the Spiritual insight of the Pyramid as lined up with the Word of God.
God has revealed His plan for the ages in the passage system in the Pyramid.
We pray the Spiritual insight given in this book will inspire you to seek
God in a new way, a new and living way, as we examine the interior of God's
God's Prophecy in Stone
To gain a basic understanding of the Great Pyramid at Giza, it becomes evident that man could never have designed or built it without divine intervention from God. Man, with all his knowledge and inventions, could not have imagined this structure, let alone designed and built it. The prophet Isaiah penned these words concerning the Great Pyramid:
"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. And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt: for they shall cry unto the Lord because of the oppressors, and He shall send them a Saviour, and a great one, and He shall deliver them." Isaiah 19:19-20
Isaiah records: "There was an altar to the Lord built in the midst of the land of Egypt." Altars were built to offer sacrifices. They were also built as memorials to the builder. The Bible records many great men who built altars to the Lord: Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Gideon, Noah, Solomon, Joshua, Elijah; plus many others.
Isaiah recorded an altar and a pillar were built unto the Lord. The word pillar means "a monument, or personal memorial". The Pyramid is not only a monument, but a personal memorial to our Lord, Christ Jesus. The prophet Jeremiah also spoke of the Great Pyramid:
"Which has set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day, and in Israel, and among other men; and hast made thee a name, as at this day;" Jeremiah 32:20
The Great Pyramid was set for signs and wonders unto God's people unto this day. This altar and pillar was to be set in the midst of the land of Egypt, and at the border of Egypt. This would seem to be a contradiction. How could something sit on the border and yet be in the midst of the land?
Egypt is like no other country on earth. Egypt has always been a divided nation. It is divided into Upper and Lower Egypt. Upper Egypt is the Southern part of Egypt and stretches from the border of Sudan to the Giza Plateau. At that point the elevation drops to what is known as Lower Egypt. Lower Egypt ranges from the Giza Plateau to the Northern most point in Egypt including the Nile Delta terminating in the Mediterranean Sea.
The Great Pyramid is located exactly on the border of Upper and Lower Egypt. Therefore it is on the border of Egypt. It stands in the exact center of the land mass of Egypt. In fact many have calculated that there is as much land mass on earth north of the Great Pyramid as there is South, and as much land mass east of the Great Pyramid as there is west. If these calculations are correct then the Great Pyramid stands in the exact center of all the land mass on earth. The Great Pyramid truly stands in the midst of the land.
Both Isaiah and Jeremiah recorded the Great Pyramid would be a sign and a wonder unto the Lord. Certainly all the world has wondered at the Pyramid over the past centuries. The Pyramid has become one of the most visited places on the face of the earth.
Ancient hieroglyphics record a Semantic Shepherd King who visited the Pharaoh's winter palace in Egypt which was located in the vicinity of the Great Pyramid. The Bible records Abraham went to Egypt at the time of the great drought in Canaan. Most likely Abraham witnessed the Great Pyramid in all its glory when it was covered with polished limestone one foot thick.
It was said of the Great Pyramid that it was a "jewel in the desert". It is also known Alexander the Great, Napoleon and many other kings and rulers of the earth have stood in awe and amazement of this monument in stone.
As stated, Isaiah and Jeremiah declared the Great Pyramid would be a sign. The word sign means "to be a signal, an ensign, a standard, an omen and a warning". The Great Pyramid is certainly all these to a dying race on planet earth. The size, shape and magnitude of the Great Pyramid is simply awe-inspiring. All the mathematical wonders contained in the Pyramid are past finding out. These can only be understood as God reveals them to His creation man.
The most amazing fact concerning the Great Pyramid is its intricate systems of passageways and chambers (See cover). As stated before, no other pyramid on earth contains such passageways or chambers. God has set this end-time sign that has withstood the ages and eons of time to record God's original plan, and only plan, for the redemption of His fallen creation man. The intricate placement of these passageways and chambers is God's witness and sign to man that He intends to restore man to his original created condition.
The Great Pyramid contains four passage ways:
The Ascending Passage
The Descending Passage
The Horizontal Passage
The Well Shaft
It contains four chambers:
The Subterranean Chamber called the Pit
The Well Shaft Chamber called the Grotto
The King's Chamber
The Queen's Chamber
The Ascending Passage leads to the King's Chamber. To reach the King's Chamber one must pass through the Grand Gallery and the Anti-Chamber. The Horizontal Passage leads to the Queen's Chamber and the Descending Passage leads to the Pit.
There are two entrances into the Great Pyramid: the original opening and a man-made opening ( See cover ). This opening was made by Caliph Al Mamoun in AD 820. The original opening is in the 17th course of masonry. The forced entry was made in the seventh course of masonry.
Both these numbers are interesting in our study of Bible numerics. They are both prime numbers, meaning they are not a multiple of any other number, and therefore have no factors. Prime numbers are indivisible numbers, meaning they cannot be divided equally by any number larger than 1. These numbers are: 2 - 3 - 5 - 7 - 11 - 13 - 17, etc.
Seven is the fourth (4th) prime number and seventeen is the seventh (7th) prime number. The original opening is located in the seventeenth course of masonry. Seventeen is made up of two numbers: 7 and 10. Ten is God's number of Spiritual order or completeness. Seven is God's number for Spiritual perfection. Seven and ten reveal God's Spiritual perfection of His Spiritual order.
When man forced his way into the Pyramid at the seventh course of Masonry, it reveals that man has attempted to come into God's Spiritual order by his own strength and power. Jesus spoke of those who try to enter His Kingdom some other way then what He has provided:
"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber." John 10:1
Caliph Al Mamoun's sole purpose in the Pyramid was to claim the treasure generally buried with Pharaohs, and removed it for his own gain. From the beginning, man has tried to enter into God's presence and will by his own way. Man's ways are corrupt before God, and nothing can be added to God's perfect way or His perfect will.
The entrance to the Great Pyramid represents the "womb". All who come into this life come by the way of the womb. When a child is born, his way is set before him. A baby is not born sinful, but is born into sin. From the time the child takes his first breath, he enters the downward passage which leads to death and destruction (See cover). In Jesus' words:
"He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but He that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." John 3:18
All who enter into life are condemned and set on the downward course which leads to the pit. The descending passage is three hundred and forty feet long. It is only three and one-half feet wide and four feet high. Man cannot stand upright, and because the passage is descending and man is bent over, it seems to be even lower in height. The Apostle Paul wrote:
"Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?" Romans 6:16
Those who are servants of sin are bowed under the weight of that sin and cannot walk upright before God. Their pathway is leading them toward, not only the death of their bodies, but eternal death which is separation from God the giver of eternal life.
The downward passage is lighted for some distance by the light of the entry way. But the farther man digresses on his downward path, the dimmer the light until he is groping in utter darkness with no hope in his life.
Only one-fourth of the Descending Passage is in the Pyramid. Three-fourths of the Descending Passage is below the base of the Pyramid. The Pit, or as it is commonly called "The Bottomless Pit", is approximately one hundred feet below the base of the Pyramid. The passage to the Pit descends very rapidly. The floor of the Pit is very uneven and steep with no place to rest. Another shaft continues downward in the floor of the Pit. This shaft leads nowhere. There is no escape for those who enter the Pit. (See cover)
Since the Pyramid is God's promise to man, those who traverse the total distance of the downward passage and end up in the Pit have separated themselves from God's promises to man. They have rejected His plan of total reconciliation and restoration. God has given hope to those on the downward passage who have missed their original calling in God, and that is the "Well Shaft". We will address the Well Shaft later in this book.
In his letter to the Romans the Apostle Paul explained the dilemma of all mankind:
"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:" Romans 5:12
Since all mankind was born with a sin nature because of Adam's sin, God made a way of escape for man in his downward course to death and destruction. About one hundred feet from the entrance in the Pyramid we come to the entrance of the Ascending Passage. But the entrance to the Ascending Passage is blocked with three red granite plugs. Red granite is only used two places in the Pyramid: here at the entrance of the Ascending Passage and in the King's Chamber. Granite is much harder than limestone. So instead of removing the red granite plug, man in his own way, bypassed the plug. (See cover) A tunnel was made around the red granite plug making man's own way into the Ascending Passage.
Red is the color of "blood". Blood has always been used to relieve man's conscience of sin. In the Old Testament, the blood of innocent animals atoned for man's sin. It was not until Jesus shed His innocent blood that man was forgiven his sin. The author of Hebrews relates:
"And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission." Hebrews 9:22
Unless blood is shed, there is no remission (forgiveness) of sin. Those who are going to climb the Ascending Passage in God's proper order, must pass through the blood. But man, through his religious systems, has given the people another way. The people are told that by joining or becoming part of a religious system and by keeping their precepts and doctrines that they are OK with God. But there is no other way except through the blood. The All-Wise Solomon wrote:
"There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 16:25
Many religions seem so right, are so big, and do so many good works. How could they be wrong? There's is the way of death because they speak of no change, no new life, no order, no oneness. All man's righteousness is gauged on attendance and giving. Our example, Jesus, informed us:
"But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved." Matthew 24:13
It is not only necessary to choose the right path, but there is an enduring unto the end if we are to be part of God's universal plan of salvation. The Ascending Passage reveals this enduring unto the end.
As we enter the Ascending Passage it is the same dimension as the Descending Passage; approximately four feet high and three and one-half feet wide. But it seems higher because you are going up, and it is not necessary to bend as low when you are ascending this passage.
The Ascending Passage is dark, steep and slippery. It is hard to walk in this passage without slipping backwards or losing your footing all together. The first part of the Ascending Passage represents the time when we come into God's plan of salvation. We have asked and received forgiveness of sin in our life. We have been baptized in water to put off the old man and received the promise of the Holy Spirit. This is when we begin our upward walk with God.
Many believe this is all there is to God's plan of salvation, and they go no further in their walk with God than forgiveness of sin and water baptism. In his letter to the Romans, Paul reveals the reason for water baptism:
"Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin." Romans 6:6
Paul related that our old man, the old, sinful Adam nature must be crucified that the body of sin might be destroyed, and from the time the body of sin is destroyed, we should no longer serve sin.
When we enter into the Ascending Passage, we have passed Spiritually through the red granite plug, and have begun our walk with God. We have been forgiven our sin, but we are still bowed under the old, sin nature of man. Water baptism brings us into another dimension in God. Apostle Peter, who was given the keys to the kingdom of God, proclaimed:
". . .Repent, and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." Acts 2:38
Peter spoke of the process we must follow to come into our Spiritual walk in Him. First, there must be repentance. Then we must be water baptized. Then, and only then, can we receive the promise of the gift of the Holy Ghost. Is this automatic at the time of baptism? No! There must be a desire and an asking to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Luke recorded Jesus' words:
"If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?" Luke 11:13
Jesus was speaking of our natural fathers who know how to give good gifts unto their children. He compares this to how our Heavenly Father will give the Holy Ghost to His children who ask. Matthew recorded:
"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." Matthew 7:7-8
If we are going to find our way in God, there must first be an asking, seeking and knocking in our lives. Only if we ask, do we receive. Only if we seek are we going to find our way. And only if we knock is God going to open His mysteries that have been hidden from the foundation of the world to our understanding.
Those who have not asked, and are not seeking and knocking, are remaining in the Ascending Passage. They are still groping in the darkness. God's Word is not a lamp unto their feet and a light unto their path, Psalm 119:105. They are groping along in their religious ways, slipping and sliding backwards, never seeming to get anywhere in their walk with God. It all seems up hill with no rest for their weary souls. Many slip and slide all the way back to the Descending Passage. Peter addressed those who have turned from the living way to return to the way of death:
"For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them." II Peter 2:21
The way of God without the Holy Spirit anointing in our life is dark, steep and slippery. Only those who desire more of what God has promised, and are determined to get all that God has promised, will continue asking and seeking until the anointing comes in their life. The coming of the anointing is also shown in the Pyramid.
THE GRAND GALLERY
The Ascending Passage opens into what is called the Grand Gallery. The Grand Gallery is also three and one-half feet wide. There are ramps on each side of this passage. The Grand Gallery Ascending Passage is unique in that it is twenty-eight feet high; seven times higher than the previous Ascending Passage.
Seven is called God's perfect number. The word seven comes from the base root SAVAH which means "to be full or have enough". The word seven then means "to be full and complete". When we come into our walk in the Spirit, then God has begun His work of perfection in our life. Paul addressed the church at Rome about this continuing upward walk into perfection:
"That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit." Romans 8:4
When we begin our walk after the Spirit, then the law of righteousness will be fulfilled in us. This is when we begin seeking God's Spiritual direction for our lives through His written Word. Our mind is changed and we do not think on the things that are alien to God's way of life. We begin to think and act upon the things that produce life. As this change takes place we come into God's redemption plan for mankind. Paul related this upward walk to perfection to the Galatians:
"If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit." Galatians 5:25
When we begin to live in the Spirit, our walk will be in the Spirit. Our walk will change because our thinking has changed, and we will apply His Word, His direction for mankind, to our lives. Paul also related to the Galatians:
"This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh." Galatians 5:16
Our walk in the Spirit becomes evident when we cease fulfilling the lust of the flesh. Fleshly lusts and desires will no longer plague our life. This is when the lust that is in the world will cease. John proclaimed these to be the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. None of these are of the Father. They are all of the world, I John 2:16.
The Grand Gallery is twenty-eight feet high. Twenty-eight is the combination of 7 x 4. The number seven (7) represents God's perfect number, meaning full and complete. The number four (4) represents God's creation. The combination of 7 x 4 then represents God's creation in divine perfection. When man receives the anointing in His life and enters into the Grand Gallery, he begins his overcoming walk in God.
At the entrance to the Grand Gallery Ascending Passage there are two other openings: the mouth of the Well Shaft and the Horizontal Passage that leads to the Queen's chamber (see cover). The Well Shaft connects with the Descending Passage just before the Bottomless Pit. The Horizontal Passage leads to the Queen's Chamber. As we continue up the steep incline, we come to the King's Chamber.
It is at the entrance to the Grand Gallery, man must make a decision. This is where man seeks His calling in God, while those who remain in the Ascending Passage continually grope in darkness, slipping and sliding, never getting anywhere. These regretfully remain as Paul wrote to Timothy: ever learning, but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth, II Timothy 3:7. When they come to the Grand Gallery and a higher calling in God, they choose to stay under the bondage of the precepts and doctrines of men in their denominational systems.
As we read and begin to understand God's Word, it becomes clear that we do not all have the same calling in our life. The book of Revelation declares two sealings of God's people: those who have the Father's seal and those who have been sealed with the name of the Holy City, New Jerusalem. God's Word also speaks of two virgins; the male virgins and the female virgins. The King's Chamber and the Queen's chamber in the Pyramid represent these two virgins and the two sealings.
Those who are called, sealed, and anointed to enter the King's Chamber must travel the steep incline of the Grand Gallery. But something has been added in the Grand Gallery that was not in the first part of the Ascending Passage. The designer of the Pyramid cut hand-holds in the side of the Grand Gallery to help the traveler who is in the process of overcoming the difficulties of this life. The hand-holds represent the promises of God that we have through the Spirit to help in this very difficult journey. Those who are called to be partakers of this heavenly calling never have an easy life. Jesus revealed to John those who have been called to obtain access to the King's Chamber:
"And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with Him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads." Revelation 14:1
Those who will partake of this high calling are the one hundred and forty-four thousand who have their Father's name in their forehead. Who are these one hundred and forty-four thousand?
"And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and He cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, 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 and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel." Revelation 7:1-4
The one hundred and forty-four thousand are those who have the Father's seal in their forehead, the seal of the living God. Jesus revealed those who were sealed were of the tribes of the children of Israel. The scriptures continue that twelve thousand of each tribe were sealed. Comparing this list with the ancient tribes we discover the tribes of Dan and Ephraim do not appear. The tribes listed in Revelation 7 are not the same as physical or ancient Israel. God has revealed His Spiritual tribes, His Spiritual Israel that would be on earth in the last hour of time. God has designated all who are called and chosen into one of these tribes.
Who then is the Israel of God in the earth today? What does the word Israel mean? It means "a prince who will rule with God". A prince is the son of a king. We need to understand that Spiritual Israel are those sons of the king who will rule and reign with Him for the one thousand year millennial reign. In his letter to the Galatians, Paul stated:
"For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision availeth anything ,nor uncircumcision, but a new creature. And as many as walk according to this rule, peace be on them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God." Galatians 6:15-16
Circumcision alludes to Natural Israel or Ancient Israel. Uncircumcision alludes to the Gentiles who knew not God. Only those who are part of His new creation man that is created in righteousness and true holiness are part of Spiritual Israel, Ephesians 4:24. Paul wrote of those who were in Christ Jesus:
"Peace be on them and mercy upon the Israel of God." Galatians 6:16
Paul related to the Ephesians:
"That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:" Ephesians 2:12
When we were without Christ (the Anointing), we, too, were aliens (Gentiles) from the commonwealth (nation) of Israel. When we come into the anointing we are no longer strangers and aliens to Israel, but God recognizes us as His nation, Spiritual Israel, and we are sealed. James, who walked with Jesus, and was most likely the disciple called James the less, recognized Spiritual Israel. James began his epistle:
"James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting." James 1:1
James was a Christian, a follower of Christ anointed on the Day of Pentecost. In reading James's letter it is clear he was not speaking to ancient or natural Israel. His letter was written to those who would make up the tribes of Spiritual Israel. The one hundred and forty-four thousand who stand on Mt. Zion make up a portion of God's Spiritual Israel. These have been chosen to make up God's ruling force in the Spiritual realm. Concerning the one hundred and forty-four thousand, Jesus revealed to John:
"And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. "These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God." Revelation 14:3-5
What did Jesus reveal about these one hundred and forty-four thousand who were the firstfruits unto God and the Lamb?
1 They were before the throne of God
2 They were redeemed from the earth (purchased for the Father's private use)
3 They were not defiled by women
4 They were virgins (undefiled)
5 They followed the Lamb wherever He went
6 These were redeemed from among men (they no longer walked among mortal men)
7 These were the firstfruit company that God called unto Himself first
8 There was no guile (deceitfulness) in their mouth (they were without fault) before the throne of God
These who were without fault before the throne of God were not defiled by women. The church is always referred to in the feminine gender. The True Church is spoken of as "woman, singular" because Christ has one church. When the church system is spoken of it is referred to as "women, plural" because there are many. These male virgins have not been defiled by "women, the church system". Jesus revealed His True Church to John when He showed him the woman:
"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered." Revelation 12:1-2
The woman clothed with the sun is the True Church. She is clothed with the righteousness and holiness of God, and the moon (judgment) is under her feet. Upon her head is a crown which means "rulership, kingship, or power". The twelve stars represent government and authority. She was with child and travailed to be delivered.
"And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne." Revelation 12:5
The child she brought forth was the man child or the sons of God who would rule (shepherd) all nations with a rod of iron. This man child company was caught up unto God and to His throne. These are the one hundred and forty-four thousand that sang a new song around the throne of God. These had been redeemed from the earth and from among men.
These are those who must traverse the Grand Gallery to obtain their calling in God. These are called, sealed and anointed to attain to the King's Chamber to rule around the throne of God. Their walk is never easy, as indicated by the steep incline. These must use the hand-holds (all the promises) supplied by God through the Spirit if they are to enter into the His presence.
The Grand Gallery ends at the fiftieth course of masonry. Fifty is the number of the Holy Spirit. Those who enter the King's Chamber are those in whom the Holy Spirit has completed His work. At the end of the Grand Gallery there is a giant step. This is called the Great Step. This is the only step up in the entire Pyramid. This step is quite high and represents a change that must take place in those who are called to the King's Chamber. This change is what is called physical death. These have been redeemed from among men and from the earth, or their earthly existence. Those who are called to the King's Chamber have been redeemed in every generation since Jesus departed His earthly walk, and have gone by way of the grave.
Above the step we enter into the Anti-Chamber. Something has changed. The Anti-Chamber is constructed of red granite. From here on everything is red granite including the King's Chamber. This is the only place in the entire Pyramid where red granite is used except the granite plug at the entrance of the Ascending Passage.
Red symbolizes blood. It was through the shed blood that we entered into the Ascending Passage. But there is another application of the blood, and this is shown in the Anti-Chamber and King's Chamber. In the Old Testament when the animal sacrifice was killed the blood was caught in a basin. The priest dipped his fingers in the blood and sprinkled it toward the tabernacle. He then poured the balance of the blood at the foot of the altar. The pouring of the blood at the foot of the altar was fulfilled when the Roman soldier thrust his spear into Jesus' side while He hung on the cross. When the high priest dipped his fingers in the blood and sprinkled it toward the tabernacle, he cast the blood into the air. This represents the Spiritual application of the blood. The writer of Hebrews referred to this Spiritual application of the blood:
"For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, Moreover He sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry." Hebrews 9:19-21
All that is sprinkled with blood is set apart in the Spiritual realm for God's special use. As we begin to understand these Spiritual things of God, then we can begin to truly understand what the writer of Hebrews meant when he wrote:
"Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water." Hebrews 10:22
Our hearts (minds) should be sprinkled from an evil conscience. Our minds must be set aside for God's Spiritual use and raised from the earthly realm to the heavenly or Spiritual realm. Our bodies, or physical life, must be washed and cleansed by the pure Word of God.
The red granite in the Anti-Chamber and the King's Chamber represent the Spiritual realm of God, and those who enter this realm have gone all the way with their God. They have followed Him wherever He leads them.
Before entering the King's Chamber, there is the Anti-Chamber. This is the place of final preparation before entering into the presence of the King. To get into the Anti-Chamber one must stoop to get under a granite block less then four feet high. After stooping, then one can stand erect again. In the natural, one cannot enter into the presence of a King without being properly dressed, properly advised in court procedure, and of good standing before the King. All this is necessary before we are admitted into the King's presence. Before entering into the King's Chamber one must stoop again under another granite block. No one will enter into the King's presence without bowing or paying homage to their King.
The King's Chamber is the largest and highest of all the chambers in the Pyramid. The King's Chamber contains the only article of furniture in the entire Pyramid. This is called the Open Coffer. The Open Coffer reveals the open tomb. Those who enter the King's Chamber have entered into resurrection life. Death has no more dominion over them. Since the Pyramid was not used as a burial sight, the open coffer was never used. The King's chamber is not a place for the dead, but for the living.
Further examination of the King's Chamber reveals two air shafts that go from the King's Chamber to the outside. This proves the King's Chamber is a place for the living, not a place of the dead.
The King's Chamber is for the one hundred and forty-four thousand who will rule and reign around the throne of God. Those who are called to this high calling should remember what is at the bottom of the Grand gallery. It is the Well Shaft which falls all the way down and intersects the Descending Passage just before the Pit.
The Grand Gallery is a steep, slippery incline. It is only by the hand-holds that one is able to make it all the way to the top. When one loses his grip on the Word of God, and ceases to apply God's promises in His life, then He will backslide all the way to the Well Shaft. The writer of Hebrews warns those who have this high calling in their life:
"For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
And have tasted the good Word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put Him to an open shame." Hebrews 6:4-6
Those who have this heavenly calling of God in their lives have been anointed and blessed to enter into the King's Chamber. If they lose their grip on God's Word and promises, then it is impossible for them to be renewed again unto repentance. They have crucified the Son of God in their lives, and have put Him to an open shame. When these backslide to the Well Shaft, they fall all the way to the Descending Passage with no chance of repentance. God had prepared the way for them, but they chose the way of the world with its worldly pleasures. Those who enter the Grand Gallery must go all the way with God. There is no turning or looking back. Jesus proclaimed to all who will follow Him:
"...No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God." Luke 9:62
THE HORIZONTAL PASSAGE
At the entrance to the Grand Gallery is the Horizontal Passage. The Horizontal Passage leads to the Queen's Chamber. Those who are called to the Queen's Chamber have another calling and sealing in their life. As the King's Chamber represents the Spiritual realm, the Queen's Chamber represents the earth realm. God has those whom He has called to rule with Him for the one thousand year millennial reign on the earth. The Horizontal Passage represents those who walk on this earthly plain. The Bible also speaks of this group as virgins:
"Then shall the Kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom." Matthew 25:1
Here again we see the number ten (10). The number ten represents divine order. These were virgins which meant they, too. were not defiled by man's order. They took their lamps, signifying the light they were walking in concerning the Word of God. They went to meet the bridegroom.
"And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps." Matthew 25:2 & 4
The wise had an extra vessel of oil with their vessels. This is the Vessel of Preparedness. The foolish went forth to meet the bridegroom, but they were not prepared. The changes required to come into the bridegroom's presence were not in the lives of the five foolish virgins.
"While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps." Matthew 25:5-7
Jesus revealed that as the bridegroom tarried all the virgins slumbered and slept. They remained in their Adam sleep. When the midnight cry came, all the virgins were awakened and arose out of their Adam sleep and trimmed, or lit their lamps. They all had oil in their lamps because they had come through the entrance of the Grand Gallery. These all had received the baptism of the Holy Spirit in their lives. But the five foolish virgins had not allowed the Holy Spirit to accomplish His purpose in their lives. They were directed to go to those who sell, and buy for themselves. The religious system has made merchandise of the Holy Spirit anointing. The Holy Spirit anointing is not for sale. It can only be purchased through a changed life. This comes when we desire to have all God has promised and begin to seek Him with our whole heart.
"And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with Him to the marriage: and the door was shut." Matthew 25:10
Those who travel the Horizontal Passage to enter into the Queen's Chamber will be partakers of the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. When the unwise virgins returned they found their time of entering in had passed and the door was shut.
"Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not." Matthew 25:11 & 12
The Lord confessed that He knew them not. Jesus spoke of those who would be at the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.
"And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.
But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." Matthew 8:11-12
The children of the Kingdom are those who have not come to maturity. They are still desiring the milk of the Word. These will not accept, nor do they desire the deeper things of God. They are content to fill a pew. Their only commitment is to the local church and their attendance record. These will be cast out into outer darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
God has a people who are prepared and will enter into the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. They will come from every corner of the earth, from every walk of life, from every color and language. These are those who have sought a relationship with their God and have been true to their calling. These have been sealed by their God. This sealing was revealed to John on the Isle of Patmos. Jesus told John to write to the church at Philadelphia. The word Philadelphia means "brotherly love". Jesus was speaking to those who have love for their brethren.
"Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and He shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is New Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name." Revelation 3:12
God will write His name and the name of His holy city which is New Jerusalem upon the overcomers in the church of brotherly love. Those who have this "Holy City" calling in their life are those who are called into the Queen's Chamber. These are the female virgins. The church is always referred to as feminine. Jesus revealed to John that the woman called to the Queen's Chamber is the True Church that brings forth the manchild. The Bible declares what happens to the True Church:
"And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days." Revelation 12:6
The woman enters into God's perfect protection during the time of God's judgment upon the earth. God is preparing His virgin church today to go through God's judgment. Jesus revealed much to John about His five female virgins, His True Church.
"And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye His servants, and ye that fear Him, both small and great. And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to Him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and His wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And He saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God." Revelation 19:5-9
Those who are called into the Queen's Chamber will make up the Holy City. Those who have made themselves ready for the return of the bridegroom have come into full maturity. Paul spoke of this glorious church that is being prepared for the bridegroom.
"That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish." Ephesians 5:27
Those who are prepared to enter in have prepared themselves. They have dealt with the spots or wrinkles in their lives. These are holy and without blemish before their God. How were these prepared? Paul revealed these were sanctified and cleansed with the washing of water by the Word, Ephesians 5:26.
We have access to the Queen's Chamber by the Horizontal Passage. The Horizontal Passage is level. There is no incline nor decline in it. Jesus spoke of those who walk on the Horizontal Passage:
"As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make His paths straight. Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth;" Luke 3:4-5
Jesus quoted the prophet Isaiah when He spoke of those who would walk the Horizontal Passage. Their walk in God is no longer on the mountain tops, nor is it in the valleys. Their's is a level, even walk in God: no more mountain top experiences, nor are their valleys of depression. These know their God and their calling in God. (See "Dry Bones" by G. Kirkpatrick)
The Horizontal Passage begins at the bottom of the Grand Gallery. All who enter the Horizontal Passage must come by way of the Grand Gallery, or they must have the Holy Spirit anointing in their life (See cover). The beginning of the Horizontal Passage is only four feet high. One must bend over to travel through the first part of the Horizontal Passage.
Those who enter into the Horizontal Passage are bowed down. They have humbled themselves in the sight of God. They have exalted God in their lives. Those who are called to the Queen's Chamber can declare as Paul:
"I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me." Galatians 2:20
Those who have crucified the flesh and are no longer living the self-life, but are exalting Christ in every aspect of their lives have humbled themselves in the sight of God. Peter wrote:
"Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time:" I Peter 5:6
When we enter the Horizontal Passage, we must be willing to humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God. Our time of exaltation is ahead of us in the Queen's Chamber. Jesus spoke of this humbling when he spoke of the children:
"Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven." Matthew 18:4
We must enter the kingdom as a little child. We must become childlike in our faith, in our trust, and in our humility. James wrote:
"Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up." James 4:10
If we are to be lifted up then we must pray as Paul prayed for the church at Galatia:
"My little children, of whom I travail in birth again unto Christ be formed in you," Galatians 4:19
When we enter the Horizontal Passage we have entered the realm where we are allowing Christ to be formed in us. When Christ is formed in us, and replaces the old Adamic nature, then we can be lifted up in the sight of God. This lifting up is shown in the Horizontal Passage. When we travel six-sevenths of the Horizontal Passage we come to a giant step down. When we step down then we can stand upright no longer needing to bend down. We can enter the Queen's Chamber standing upright in the last one-seventh of the Horizontal Passage. (See cover)
The Horizontal Passage reveals God's seven periods of time. God's time is broken down into seven of God's one thousand year days. For six of these days, God's people have been bowed down under oppressive governmental rule; either the rule of governmental systems or the governmental rule of the man-made church system. But God is going to loose His people and set them free.
We are coming to the end of the sixth-seventh of the Horizontal Passage, or to the end of the sixth one thousandth year day. We are about to come to that giant step where we will be able to stand on our feet and enter the Kingdom Age. God revealed this time to us Spiritually in the account of the lame man sitting at the Gate Beautiful, Acts 3:2. The Gate Beautiful is the Eastern Gate where the lame man with crippled feet was looking toward the New Day, the seventh day of God's creation.
Peter and John saw the lame man begging for the things of this life. The church is still begging for the things of this life, but God is about to perform a miracle. This man had been lame from his mother's womb. God's people have been crippled from the womb of time, because of oppression and unbelief. Peter looked upon this man and proclaimed:
" . . .Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk." Acts 3:6
Silver and gold are not going to free God's people from the bondage of this life that has crippled their walk. It is only when we begin to operate in the name of Christ that we are going to be healed. Peter reached down and pulled this man up on those crippled feet that had hindered his walk and told him to rise up and walk:
"And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God." Acts 3:8
God is about to heal the crippled feet of His body. We are coming to the end of the low part of the Horizontal Passage ready to enter that New Day where we, too, can stand up and enter His kingdom; walking, leaping, and praising God. This will only happen to those who have humbled themselves before their God. Those who enter the Queen's Chamber will have entered into Eternal Life.
The Queen's Chamber, like the King's Chamber, is a place for the living. The Queen's Chamber also has air vents. The difference between the King's Chamber and the Queen's Chamber is that they represent two different realms. The King's Chamber reveals the Spiritual realm, the Queen's Chamber represents the earth realm. Jesus revealed to John on the Isle of Patmos:
"And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the Word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years." Revelation 20:4
Jesus spoke of those who would rule and reign with him for one thousand years. Where are these going to reign? Jesus also disclosed this to John:
"And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth." Revelation 5:10
Kings and priests are two different callings in God. Those who are kings are those who are called to the King's Chamber. These will rule and reign around the throne of God. Those who are Priests are those who are called to the Queen's Chamber. These will rule and reign on the earth. These will be given dominion over their inheritance. What is their inheritance? Jesus quoted the Psalmist when He spoke:
"Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth." Matthew 5:5
The meek (the humble) are going to inherit the earth. God is preparing those who will again take dominion over the earth. God created the earth for man, and He is going to renew the earth. Those who are prepared will again rule and reign over God's whole creation. This was God's plan for man from the beginning.
As the Anti-Chamber is a place of preparation, so is the last one-seventh of the Horizontal Passage the seventh one thousand year day. This is where God will prepare those who are going to have dominion over the earth for all eternity. These are revealed in the Queen's Chamber. The prophet Isaiah spoke of these that will rule and reign in the Queen's Chamber:
"For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones." Isaiah 57:1
Those who are called to the Queen's Chamber have no less a calling then those who are called to the King's Chamber. Each have a place in God's eternal kingdom.
There is another group of saints that God has spoken of in His Word. These have never entered into the Grand Gallery. They remain in the Ascending Passage, slipping and sliding back and forth. These depend on their religion and their belief in the precepts and doctrines of man to give them a right standing before God. Paul spoke of these in his letter to Rome:
"For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God." Romans 10:3
These know nothing of the righteousness of God. They have established their own righteousness in their dress codes and moral standards. The prophet Joel addressed these lingering in the Ascending Passage:
"Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision: for the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision." Joel 3:14
Those who are in the valley of decision, who have refused to go all the way with God, are sure to end up on the Descending Passage. Those who refuse to go forward always go backwards.
The Well Shaft
At the beginning of the Grand Gallery is the Well Shaft. The Well Shaft is a two way passage. It is called the well because at times it is almost straight up and down. It is easy to fall down the shaft, but it would be impossible to climb up the Well Shaft without help. This could be physical help, a rope or cable; or, supernatural help that is by the resurrection power of God in our life.
Many in the Ascending Passage have come to the entrance to the Grand Gallery. They have come face to face with accepting or rejecting the Holy Spirit anointing in their life. When they refuse the anointing, they are destined for the Well Shaft. The Well Shaft leads to the Descending Passage or the earthly plain where man is destined for the Pit. In His mercy, God always gives place for repentance. The Apostle Peter wrote:
"The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." II Peter 3:9
God is not willing that any should perish, but that all His creation man should come to repentance.
In the Well Shaft God has provided a Grotto (See cover). The Grotto is an enlarged opening in the Well Shaft. It is a place of refreshment, a place of rest, a place of repentance where man can change his direction. The Grotto is not a comfortable place of ease. It is a place of decision. Once that decision is made, that person returns to the entrance of the Grand Gallery or continues his downward course to the Descending Passage. All men must make their decision once and for all. Those who refuse the Holy Spirit in their life cannot enter into the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. In his second letter to Timothy, Paul revealed:
"But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of His." Romans 8:9
Those who refuse the Holy Spirit anointing are still in their fleshly existence and are given over to their fleshly appetites. They live their lives in the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye and the prideful things of life. The worldly lusts have crowded out God, and those who have not the Spirit of Christ are none of His.
The Descending Passage is the realm of God's judgment, and the multitudes who have refused the anointing will suffer the judgment of God along with the unsaved. After the sealing of the one hundred and forty-four thousand, John was shown this great multitude:
"After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb." Revelation 7:9-10
These who stood before the throne of God could only cry, "Salvation". This is all they knew of God. They had no overcoming power in their life.
"One of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? And whence came they?
And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb." Revelation 7:13-14
These had come out of Great Tribulation. They had washed their robes and made them white. They had been purified and made righteous in the Great Tribulation, the wrath of God. These are those Paul spoke of in his letter to the Corinthians:
"If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire." I Corinthians 3:15
Paul revealed those who's work was wood, hay, and stubble. Their works will not survive the day of fire. But those who have washed their robes and made them white in the Great Tribulation shall be saved as by fire. Jesus revealed to John how these have washed their robes and made them white:
"And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them, And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them." Revelation 11:7-12
Those who have rejected the Spirit of God and have chosen to walk in their earthly existence will suffer the judgment of God in His wrath that will be poured out upon all flesh. Many are looking for an escape plan called the rapture. The only escape plan God has for His people is when we flee unto Him and enter into His protected place.
Where does the multitude fit in God's kingdom plan?
"Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple: and He that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them into living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes." Revelation 7:15-17
These must finish their testimony. These are God's witnesses during the wrath. These stand before the throne to serve Him day and night. These are the "servant saints".
God has revealed those who will rule and reign around the throne (the King's Chamber). He has revealed those who will rule and reign on the earth (the Queen's Chamber). He has also revealed his servant saints who will minister around the throne. These are all called by His name. But what of those who have totally rejected God's call in their life? What of those who have seen and heard and have said no to every unction of God in their life?
"But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;" II Peter 2:12
Those who have never overcome the old beast nature, who wanted nothing to do with God, His Kingdom, or His people will continue their downward course to the Pit. This is the place of total separation from God, a place of eternal darkness and torment. Our God is gracious, merciful, and loving toward His creation. He is not willing for any to perish. But there are those who will perish in their own corruption.
God has provided a way of repentance to the last breath. The Well Shaft ends just before the edge of the Pit. Those who are headed for the Pit can at anytime turn from their wicked ways and, through God's help, ascend the Well Shaft to the entrance of the Grand Gallery to fulfill their calling in God. Jude wrote:
"And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy," Jude 1:22-24
Christ, the anointing, is man's only hope of escaping God's judgment. Christ is man's only hope of escaping the Pit. God has set His plan of redemption in this monument of stone that has stood the eons of time as a witness of His eternal purpose for His creation man. Man still has time to repent and change his direction. God is not slack in keeping His promises.
God's eternal plan and purpose is set forth in the Pyramid at Giza; not some small, insignificant sign, but a magnificent sign that all the world can see and witness for themselves as a brilliant jewel in the sun. Those who heed will stand in God's presence. Those who fail to heed are destined for the Descending Passage and all that goes with it.
God has done His part. The only question everyone must answer is: "Will you be a part?" God has prepared the way. Will you walk in it?
