There is an interesting scripture in Matthew chapter 21 that contains a wonderful mystery about the Great Pyramid, the Christ within, and you! The revelation of this mystery is quite empowering to the soul. Sadly, this revelation remains elusive to the religiously-minded individual who places their trust in man-made doctrine instead of listening to the still small voice within, which is where we are told that truth comes from by the author of 1Kings 19:12 and Jesus in Luke 17:21. The religiously-minded individual still believes the Bible teaches about God who lives “outside” of them because they are focused on the literal interpretations. But the esoteric understanding of Jesus is the very symbol of the God who lives “within” us, and all scripture is meant to show us this truth. To many this sounds arrogant and prideful, and it would be if the truth stopped there. But the inner revelations of the scriptures show us that the person we are living in this life is not our true selves; the person that you think you are is nothing more than a sojourner on this earth. The illusion of the ego is quite deceptive, and the way back to God is to move beyond the ego and into pure light, which is the mystical union with God. As Jesus said:
“…that they may be one, as we…” (John 17:11).
“That they all may be one…that they all be one in us…” (John 17:21).
Becoming one with God through the mystical experience taught by Jesus and others removes the illusion of the separate self as our ultimate reality. What could be more humbling than this truth? For this truly crucifies your ego and uplifts God. And yet those who preach this truth were persecuted the hardest. Unfortunately, up is down, and down is up in religion!
The topic I am going to address today will seek to unveil one of the great hidden truths of the Bible from a perspective you might not have seen before.
I have already mentioned the mystery in Matthew chapter 21. The scripture I am referring to involves Jesus doing what he does best: berating the religiously-minded Pharisees.
“Jesus saith unto them, did you never read in the Scriptures, The Stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner…” (Matthew 21:42).
There is only one structure where the headstone can also be a cornerstone: a pyramid. The head and corner stone could also be referred to as a capstone.
So why is pyramid language in the Bible? And more importantly, what does it have to do with Jesus?
A lot, actually! Pyramids were built throughout the ancient world on almost every continent. Very large ones were made from the earth itself. The extent of this work has not been stressed in history because the spiritual and scientific reasons for these structures conflict with what major religions of the world exoterically espouse today. From the recently discovered stone megaliths off of Okinawa, to the discovery of a great earthen pyramid in Bosnia, the great pyramids of the earth truly represent a great enigma of the ancient world. Fortunately, modern archeology and the internet are slowly bringing the information needed to understand these great structures to light.
A careful study of the pyramids shows us that the peoples of the ancient world shared a universal knowledge and system of ideas about matter and spirit and the soul of mankind. The Bible ultimately reveals the same. The problem with most traditional Christian attitudes today about the builders of these pyramids is to think they were heathens who despised God just because the Bible seems to say so in its literal interpretations. But like all Bible language, the countries and peoples of the Bible were symbols that explained metaphorically the holy temple that is our body and the journey of our soul from heaven to earth and back again.
With that being said, we must ask ourselves this: Was Jesus talking pyramid language because there is something more to the Bible than the institutional church has taught? Yes!
Traditionally, the scriptures that reference the pyramid have been taught as messianic prophecies concerning the coming Christ. Well and good. The problem lies with what the Messiah is supposed to be and represent. If the Pyramids were so important that the Biblical writers included them in their writings as a way of explaining a revelation of the Messiah, we would do well to consider the coming Messiah from two different perspectives:
1) As a literal, external event, where a literal messiah comes to earth
2) A metaphor for an experience which happens “within” you.
Can the scriptures referring to the pyramid help reveal which one is meant? I believe so.
When Jesus uses pyramid language, he is quoting Psalm 118:22. If you analyze the verses directly before 118, the Psalmist is speaking of God’s righteousness and salvation, and the gateway to these concepts. What is the gateway? It is the messiah, but the messiah is metaphorically explained as the capstone of a pyramid. The next obvious question we should be asking is why the capstone of a pyramid is also a metaphorical representation of a gateway to righteous? Jesus represents the gateway to God. Jesus is referred to as a capstone of a pyramid. So what is the correlation of Jesus and a capstone?
To find out, let’s jump to that Old Testament book which is probably most famous for its messianic prophecies: Isaiah! This book contains a direct reference to the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.
“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 a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of hosts in the land of Egypt…and he shall send them a savior…” (Isaiah 19:19-20).
The scripture above says that this altar will be a sign of a savior? So how can we be positive that this sign to the savior is a reference to the Great pyramid at Giza? Look at the above scripture again. How can there be an altar in the midst of a state and at the same time be on the border of a state? An astute person of Egyptian history knows that ancient Egypt was divided into two kingdoms, upper and lower Egypt. The Great Pyramid sits in the midst of this border that once divided the two kingdoms, thus the Biblical author wrote this scripture in reference to this pyramid that was in the midst and border of Egypt.
The Division of Egypt was for a Spiritual Purpose
Egypt was divided into two kingdoms for a reason. Just as man has two natures, the higher and the lower self, so did Egypt; the whole of the country was divided in such a way as to represent this great spiritual truth of mankind. As satellite images have shown, the Great Pyramid is in the exact middle of the ancient division between the Egyptian kingdoms. The Hebrew word used in Isaiah, midst, has the connotation “within.” Therefore the pyramid was built as a “sign” of the truth in their midst, and it was a truth that was supposed to be realized from “within!”
As a side not, remember Jesus said the kingdom was in the midst of man.
So what is this ultimate truth? Remember in Isaiah the pyramid was a pillar and a “sign.” It was a sign of the ultimate truth, which cannot be understood, but rather explained as a mystical union with God. And the capstone—which was never put in place—represents the pinnacle of this union (more on this later).
As you can see, the Great Pyramid represented the great bridge between man’s two natures. It stood as a symbolic union of the conscious and subconscious, the higher and lower self, and our two natures, also known as the Ying and the Yang or the male and female.
In the New Testament, it is Jesus who represents this truth. He is the mystical union with God. And that’s why he stated that he was the truth, life, and the way. So the obvious question now becomes, was the Pyramid of Giza a sign to the Biblical author of Isaiah for a literal flesh and blood Messiah or for an experience the messiah concept is known to represent?
Before answering that, here are a few more things you should be aware of:
Inside the King’s Chamber of the pyramid is a stone coffer (initiation box) with the exact dimensions as the Biblical Ark of the Covenant. Even more astounding, the stone coffer is too big to get through the door of the King’s chamber, so the entire structure of the pyramid was built with this coffer in mind. This coffer was the only furniture piece in the King’s Chamber, and the Ark of the Covenant is the only piece in the Holy of Holies of God. What’s more, the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid is the same cubic volume of the bronze laver in Solomon’s temple.
Folks, what’s going on here?
Besides the obvious answer that the builders of the Pyramid knew the dimensions of the Ark and Temple of Solomon many hundreds, if not thousands, of years before God gave them to Moses, we have to admit (if were honest with ourselves) that the Bible doesn’t quite contain the literal revelation like we have been traditionally taught it does.
The Ark of the Covenant housed the ten commandments of stone. They were “within” it. God told the people that a day would come where his Laws would be written “within” their hearts. Jesus is the Christian revelation of this truth. But does Jesus magically come into your heart through a “belief” that you have in him, where all you have to do is confess with your mouth and believe in your heart, and try to follow him (where you ultimately fail), or does Jesus represent an experience and metaphysical union with God, something that happens “within” you that truly transforms your conscious nature?
A Few More Things to Consider About the Pyramid:
In ancient times the Great Pyramid was covered in polished limestone that reflected the sunlight in such a way it literally became a light of the ancient world, seen from many miles away. It was truly a light upon a hill!
Did you know the numerical value of the Hebrew letters in Isaiah 19:19-20 equals 5449, the exact height in inches of the great pyramid at Giza! It truly was a sign!
In Jeremiah the Biblical author puts it this way:
“The Great, the Mighty God…has set signs and wonders in the land of Egypt, even unto this day!” (Jeremiah 32:18-20)
The capstone of the Great Pyramid of Giza was never put in place (was rejected, as they say about Christ). The capstone is considered the most important part of the pyramid. Remember that the pyramid was a sign, even to its builders of the ultimate truth and reality. Why then, would they leave off the capstone? Could it possibly represent the mystical union with God, the ultimate revelation or reality beyond the veil of the separate self and physical reality?
It is obvious that the builders of the pyramid understood the fall of man from pure spirit (the heavens) into matter (the earth), just like it is written in the story of Adam and Eve. The missing capstone portrays this revelation.
My thoughts on Jesus
So was Jesus a real person? I absolutely believe that he was. However, Jesus is based on a historical person who achieved the highest spiritual evolution in consciousness one can attain. He was the model for the Jesus taught in the Gospels. But his mission was not about believing in something “outside” of you for salvation. Salvation is a state of BEING, which you enter into when you go “within,” through meditation, prayer, and hopefully, and eventual a mystical union with God. If you go beyond the literal interpretation of the Bible, it is easy to see that this is what Jesus taught in his parables.
How Can This Knowledge Help You?
The Gospel of Thomas—a Gnostic gospel that was scorned by the ancient Roman Church—states that those who believe in a resurrection after death will receive nothing. Rather, they can only receive it in this life. The point is that THIS life IS your opportunity for salvation right HERE AND NOW, not in some future event. So how can the second coming of the messiah be literal? It’s a symbolic representation of something that happens “within” you. So, you have to be honest with yourselves. I am not here to rattle or shake up the traditional Christian foundations you have been taught. That is painful. But I am here to get you to question your deepest beliefs and understandings of who you are. Have you ever looked within yourself, truly? I recommend getting in front of a mirror. Stare at yourself. What do you see? Ask yourself if the real you is the physical reality staring back at you in the mirror, or is there something more significant residing inside of you. Our inner self barely gets the time and attention it deserves within our busy lifestyles and schedules. The inner you deserves at least ten percent, which is what the tithe in the Bible is really about anyway. So do something about it and give it at least ten percent of your time, devotion, and conscious effort. Go meditate and pray!
