Once an ancient wonder, the Great Pyramid has become a modern mystery to most of our progressive society. Most, believing it to be a tomb of a venerated pharaoh, cannot explain the absence of all traditional evidence of such.

When preconceived notions are laid aside, the expression employed by the architect reveals the secrets of the Great Pyramid. The pi proportion, the length of the base, the distance to the sun, the incredible accuracy and workmanship in the passage system, the fulfillment of Bible prophecy, the chronological record of Biblical history, the corroboration of the glorious Biblical promises for the world of mankind, all of these, and many more combine to form the most significant building placed upon this earth.

The significance of the Great Pyramid unfolds as one moves about and studies its separate parts. However, like many art forms, its full meaning is perceived only after the configuration of the total expression is understood. The shape of the Great Pyramid's exterior is simple yet sublime in its proportions—ordinary, yet singularly scientific in it's measurement. The interior passages and chambers symbolically diagram God's divine plan of the ages. The passage goer is made to feel, in moving through the spaces, not only that each passage is related to the one before and after it but that each passage and chamber advances the concept of the whole: a form that is greater than the sum of it's parts.

Consistent with His style employed in the Bible, God has revealed His message to us in a form we can see and understand. Once the purpose of the Great Pyramid is deciphered, the message becomes exciting, for it touches the lives of every one of us!

The message of the Great Pyramid is the same as that of the Bible. Specifically to make known unto the world the 'good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people.'

Poets, philosophers, and prophets have long expressed the profound desire of the human soul for peace, brotherhood, harmony with God and an end to death. The Great Pyramid, which to the casual observer symbolizes the shape of the ancient past, becomes, in the light of the Bible, the shape of things to come.

How the Great Pyramid Pictures God's Plan


This is the 'night of weeping' from which all men groan to be released. {Ro 8:22,19} There is some righteousness in the world, but evil predominates. See The Divine Plan of the Ages, chapter 4.


Symbolizing that life will be provided for all men on earth (Queen's Chamber), and faithful followers of Christ in heaven (King's Chamber). See The Divine Plan of the Ages, chapter 10.


28 feet high, 155 feet long, but only 6 feet wide. Its steep, narrow, but vaulted climb aptly symbolize the privileges and difficulties of the 'narrow way to life' which Christ's faithful followers walk at the present time and throughout the Christian Age. It leads to the King's Chamber, which represents heaven. See The Divine Plan of the Ages, chapters 5, 10.


The first upward corridor in the Pyramid, it represents the promise of life that was given to all Jews who would keep the law. It is blocked at its lower end by an immovable 50-ton granite plug. Granite in the Great Pyramid symbolizes that which is divine. Thus the granite plug demonstrates that none could gain life during the Jewish age because none could keep the perfect requirements of the divine law. See The Divine Plan of the Ages, chapter 12.


A slippery, downhill passage. Jesus called it the 'Broad Way' to destruction. {Mt 7:13} All men have traveled this path toward death, but all men will gain a complete opportunity for life through Christ in the resurrection. See The Divine Plan of the Ages, chapter 11.


Not really a well, but a way of escape for those in the lower reaches of the Pyramid. It symbolizes Christ whose death as a ransom sacrifice will provide a way of escape for all—even those in the 'pit' of death. See The Divine Plan of the Ages, chapter 9.


Its sides and ceiling are finished, but its floor is extremely uneven. Thus it is 'bottomless.' This symbolizes the condition of death. All men will be raised from the dead by Christ. (Read Job 33:24 and Ac 24:15) See The Divine Plan of the Ages, chapter 9.


(wherein dwelleth righteousness) — This is the 'morning of joy' which all men pray for when they utter the words, 'Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth....' The first 1,000 years of this endless age is set aside in God's plan for the restoring of man and the conquering of sin and death. {Ac 3:19-21,1Co 15:25} See The Divine Plan of the Ages, chapters 4, 14.


The largest room in the Pyramid is also the most beautiful. With its granite walls and life-sustaining air passages, the King's Chamber is symbolic of divine life—immortality. This is the condition of Christ's faithful followers in heaven. They will rule and bless mankind. {Re 20:6} See The Divine Plan of the Ages, chapter 5.


This large chamber symbolizes the everlasting home for all men—planet earth. After they reach perfection in Christ's Kingdom, 'there will be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying, nor any more pain.' {Re 21:4} See The Divine Plan of the Ages, chapter 6.


6/7 of its length is cramped and low. The last 1/7 has room for a man to walk upright. This symbolizes the l,000-year rest, or Sabbath which God has in store for his human family, following the 6,000 years of the 'night of weeping.' See The Divine Plan of the Ages, chapter 11.
