For almost 5000 years, the pyramids have asked more questions than they have answered.
Many books have been written which have uncovered incredible facts concerning their construction and their astronomical qualities. We have learned that the Pyramids of Giza are aligned with certain star constellations. It has also been discovered that other similar structures in Mexico and Cambodia also have astronomical significance.
The Great Pyramid of Giza consists of circa 2.3 million stone blocks weighing around 2.5 tons each. Some of the blocks weigh up to 50 tons. Yet despite the vast amount of blocks used, and the incredible weights involved, the mathematical accuracy of the layout of the building is breathtaking. Other such puzzling buildings scattered around the world pose the same questions.
Who built them? How did they acquire such mathematical and astronomical knowledge? And what advanced technology did they use in the construction?
To simply say «The Egyptians built them,» is not a satisfactory answer.
For if man began at the stone age, progressed to the bronze and then to the iron age, then we have the oldest pyramids popping up somewhere between the stone age and the bronze age. This is akin to saying that at some point in time past, man invented the wheel. Sometime later, another made a cart. But in between the wheel and the cart we find a brand new Mercedes!
This is a realistic comparison when considering the construction of the pyramids.
Despite all the recent books written about them, the pyramids remain a conundrum wrapped in an enigma and surrounded by a paradox. Yes, these authors have discovered and charted their astronomical significance. They have unearthed their geometric alignments and mathematical accuracies. And the conclusion they have reached is that some lost civilization or race of advanced people were responsible for these mammoth edifices.
But all these writers have one thing in common. They have failed to inform us as to who these people were and from whence they derived their knowledge and skills. When one or two of these esteemed authors do hazard a guess as to who these mystery architects and builders may have been, their speculations amount to little more than sand castles built on the tidal reach of eternity.
It is my contention that the evidence advanced in this volume will provide satisfactory answers to all these questions.
Buried in ancient Hebrew texts, undiscovered and largely ignored by scholars, lies a wealth of information about a mysterious cabal and little known race of people called the Nephilim.
In the first part of this volume, I have provided a detailed study of this unknown race showing,
- Who they were
- Where they came from
- Where they acquired their mathematical and astronomical knowledge
- How they possessed the strength to construct these huge buildings
- Why they chose the pyramid shape
- Why they align with celestial bodies
- Where they went
Analyzing again the ancient texts, I will provide an examination of the prophecies of the Book of Revelation and of the signs we are told would precede these imminent happenings.
In doing so we shall garner the necessary details and information whereby the reader will be able to audition the future. Finally, having traveled back to an epoch dating to before our world began, and having journeyed forward to espy what lies ahead, this volume will culminate and climax in a phenomen never before proposedor explored. – The Pyramid of The Apocalypse
You are now invited on a excursion through time and space that may change your perceptions on life forever
Many people are aware of the phenomenal engineering feats involved in the construction of the Great Pyramid of Giza. For those who are not I would like to give a brief and simple summary of some of these facts.
On the west of the river Nile, not too far from ancient Memphis and almost opposite present day Cairo, stands the last one of the seven wonders of the ancient world THE GREAT PYRAMID. This is the largest of all the pyramids and the first built. It embodies in its construction such a wealth of knowledge of mathematics and astronomy that indicate that it’s builders possessed amazing wisdom.
The original pyramid was built of granite and limestone rock and had a smooth exterior finish of white limestone which would have made it impossible to surmount. Some legends say its capstone was made of gold. In its original form it must have been an awe inspiring sight. But the passage of time and the wear and tear of countless storms have stripped away its limestone exterior and left us with what we have today.
Now one can climb to the top, using the bricks as stairs, a feat which, in its initial form, would have been impossible. The esteemed architect and escatologiest, Clarence Larkin, made the following observations.
The base of the Great Pyramid covers about thirteen acres.
It consists of approximately 2.3 million blocks of stone weighing around 2.5 tons each, some weighing up to 50 tons. Some huge granite blocks, weighing 100 tons, are situated within the pyramid structure at a height of 46 meters. The base of the pyramid is a square with right angles accurate to within one-twentieth of a degree. The sides are equilateral triangles and face exactly to the true north, south, east and west of the earth.
Taking the Hebrew cubit to be 25.025 inches, the length of each side of the base is 365.2422 cubits, the exact number of days in the solar year (including the extra day for every 4 years).
The slope of the sides of the pyramid is of such an angle that they meet at the apex at the predetermined height of 232.52 cubits. If twice the length of a side at the base, be divided by the height of the pyramid we arrive at the figures 3.14159, which when multiplied by the diameter of a circle, gives its circumference.
The perimeter of the base of the pyramid (365.242 x 4 = 14609.68) is exactly equal to the circumference of a circle whose diameter is twice the height of the pyramid (232.52 x 2 x 3.1416 = 14609.68).
So here we have in these figures the solution to the problem of how to square a circle (See figure 1 below).
The angle of slope of the sides is 10 to 9. That is, for every 10 feet you ascend, you rise in altitude 9 feet. And if you multiply the altitude of the pyramid by 10 raised to the power of 9, you have 91,840,000, which in miles, is the exact distance of the sun from the earth!
The year of the stars is called the ‘Sidereal’ and the year of the seasons is called the ‘Equinoctial’. They differ by about 50 seconds per year. In other words, the stars in their rising and setting are retarded by about 50 seconds each year. In order for the ‘Sidereal’ and the ‘Equinoctial’ years to come around and coincide again would take 25,827 years, which is called a ‘cycle’. If we add together the diagonals of the pyramids base in inches, we arrive at 25,827, or as many inches as the cycle has years.
The Great Pyramid stands at the exact centre of the world. It is midway between the west coast of Mexico and the east coast of China. Between the north cape of Norway and the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa.
It stands at the intersection of the 30th parallel, both latitude and longitude.
The Great Pyramid was the highest buildings in the world for thousands of years until modern man began building skyscrapers such as the World Trade Center.
If it were compared to a skyscraper, the Great Pyramid would be 42 storeys high. It contains enough stone to build a six foot high wall from New York to Los Angeles.
Researchers Alan and Sally Lansberg provide the following statistics regarding this incredible edifice:
«Somehow the builders knew that the world was round but flattened at the poles, which caused a degree of latitude to lengthen at the top and bottom of the planet; that it rotated in one day on an axis tilted 23.5° to the ecliptic, causing night and day, and that this tilt caused the seasons; that earth circled the sun once in a year of 365 and a fraction days.
The designers also must have known that earth’s celestial north pole described a slow circle around the pole of the ecliptic, making the constellations appear to ‘slip backward’ (the precession of the equinoxes), and bring a new constellation of the Zodiac behind the sun at the equinox approximately every twenty two hundred years in a grand circle of about twenty-six thousand years.
These facts, too, were part of the internal measurements of the pyramid».
We are asked to believe that primitive man, dressed in animal skins and roaming wild, constructed the Great Pyramid with all that it entails, yet these same builders had not yet invented the simple wheel.
From an astronomical point of view, we have learned some extraordinary facts. There are four long narrow passage ways or shafts built into the Great Pyramid. Two on the north face and two on the south. The two on the north point to two distinct stars. One at Beta Ursa Minor and one at Alpha Draconis in the constellation of Draco.
And Zeta Orionis, which is the brightest star of three in Orions belt, is identified with Osiris, the high god of resurrection and rebirth in the remote epoch referred to as ‘Zep Tepi’ or ‘First Time‘. (See figure 2 below)
Similarly, ancient monuments in Mexico and at Angkor in Cambodia have celestial connections with Orion, Draco, Leo and Aquarius. Why these astronomical associations? Is it mere coincidence or calculated wisdom? More about this later…
At Nazca in Peru we find a huge combination of strange lines and drawings which only become discernable when viewed from an airplane.
These lines cover a large area of 60 kilometers square and could in no way be the work of mortal man. There are various sketches of the Nazca Monkey, Humming Bird, Whale, Spider, Dog and Condor, all etched into the rugged earth. Scores of perfectly geometric lines and designs populate the landscape.
Some of the lines resemble runways used for aircraft either landing or taking off.
The longest of these lines measures almost 15 miles (23 kilometers).
But what do they mean?
Where did they come from and who made them?
Again the scholars and experts arrive at the same conclusion. They don’t know. Speculation reigns.
There is an ancient temple at Baalbek in Lebanon known as the temple of Jupiter. Incorporated in the foundations are three huge cut-stone blocks weighing 800 tons each. Not far away lies another gigantic stone block called the Stone of the South, weighing 1000 tons. This is the combined weight of three 747 Jumbo Jets. How did the builders cut such huge blocks and, more to the point, how did they move them into place?
Much has been chronicled regarding the building and astronomical parallels and mathematical qualities of the many monuments that populate the globe.
Fine and learned scholars have mapped and measured these buildings and charted their celestial counterparts with minute precision. Many books containing the finer details of their construction and stellar configuration populate bookshops everywhere. In the interest of simplicity I would refer the reader to consider these if further information is required.
What message are these edifices relaying to us? Is there something we can learn from them that has so far eluded us? If the cold walls of these dumb monoliths could speak, what priceless information would they impart? Do they portend coming events? I believe they do.
And we shall now endeavor to unveil the riddle of the pyramids by identifying their likely architects.
Buried in the depths of the Pentateuch and other ancient Hebrew texts, lies a wealth of information that has long been, by and large, invisible to most scholars.
But how reliable are these age old writings? Can we learn anything new from them or is our first instinct to dismiss any likely discoveries as mere fable? Before delving into these hidden scripts, I would like to put forth some interesting vignettes which may have previously been unknown to the reader.
In his best selling book «The Bible Code«, Michael Drosnin sets out his findings on a series of computer based scientific tests carried out by himself and some eminent Jewish mathematicians. It was well known of old by Jewish scribes, that there was a hidden code encrypted in the Hebrew lettering of the Pentateuch, which is the name for the first five books of the Old Testament.
These are written originally in Hebrew. If you take the first Hebrew letter in Genesis, skip 49 and take the next letter, and repeat the skip sequence, then every four letters spells Torh (the Hebrew word pronounced ‘Torah’, meaning ‘The Law of God’ ).
This holds all the way through the first two books of the Bible, Genesis and Exodus. When you get to the middle book of the five, Leviticus, it stops. However, when you do the same skip sequence for Deuteronomy and the Book of Numbers, it spells Hrot, which is Torh backwards.
Go back now to the middle book of the five, Leviticus, use the skip sequence again this time skipping every seven letters, and it spells YHWH (pronounced YAWEH). Which is the Hebrew name for God!
So we have every 49 letters in Genesis and Exodus spelling ‘The Law of God’ and pointing to Leviticus, and every 49 letters of Deuteronomy and Numbers spelling ‘The Law of God’ backwards and pointing to Leviticus.
Every seven letters in this book spells YAWH; God himself…
Genesis Leviticus Deuterony
Torh->Torh->Torh-> YAWH <-Hrot<-Hrot<-Hrot
Because Hebrew lettering is mathematical as well as literal, these scholars were able to put the whole of the Pentateuch into a computer program.
Then they chose differing «skip» sequences and ran them through the program. The results they found astounded them. Encoded throughout the texts, they found messages concerning different aspects of life and history.
For instance, Drosnin himself whilst running through a particular test one day, found the name Yitzhak Rabin encoded in the text.
Written across this name was «Assassin That Will Assassinate». Perplexed and concerned by his findings, Drosnin then wrote to Yitzhak Rabin (who was then President of Israel), telling him of his findings. Rabin wrote back and informed Drosnin that he was a humanist, a fatalist and unconcerned with these findings.
Some time later, while in a railway station in Canada, Drosnin was speaking on the telephone to a friend.
His friend asked him if he had heard the latest news.
«What news?» Drosnin asked.
«Yitzhak Rabin has just been shot dead in Israel»!
With this, Drosnin dropped the phone and began to shake.
Before this, he had known intellectually in his head, that these codes were unique. But now he knew in his heart and his stomach, that these hidden codes were indeed for real.
Michael Drosnin and the Jewish mathematicians that pioneered these studies, have done thousands of these ‘skip’ sequence tests. They have found all manner of information concerning events that have already happened and some concerning the future. And the interesting thing is, there is no way they could have discovered these hidden codes without the use of computers. For the information is so vast, and the permutations so great, that in no way could it be deciphered without the use of our modem day computers.
After Yitzhak Rabin’s assassin was arrested, Drosnin put his name into the program and ran it through the same sequence he had used before. To his astonishment, right above the place where he had found the original message concerning Yitzhak Rabin, his assassin’s name was encoded in the Hebrew text.
This is just a small snippet from Michael Drosnin’s book. His findings along with those of his Jewish colleagues have been tested and scrutinized by many agencies such as the CIA and the American army and none have been able to contradict or gainsay their conclusions.
This tells us that there is much we do not know and have yet to discover concerning these ancient texts that have been largely ignored for so long. Suppose you are asked to construct a genealogy of real people, but there are certain constraints.
The number of words in this genealogy must:
Be evenly divisible by seven (with no remainders)
The number of letters must be divisible by seven
The number of vowels and consonants must be divisible by seven
The number of words that begin with a vowel must be divisible by seven
The number of words that begin with a consonant must be divisible by seven
The number of words that occur more than once, must be divisible by seven
The number of words that occur in more than one form must be divisible by seven
The number of words that occur only in one form must be divisible by seven
The number of names in the genealogy must be divisible by seven
The number of male names must be divisible by seven
And the number of generations in the genealogy must be divisible by seven
Would it not be next to impossible to draw up such a genealogy?
Yet this describes exactly the genealogy of the Messiah as given in the gospel of Matthew 1 :2-17.
From an academic and literary point of view, the Bible stands head and shoulders above any other book ever written, yet it is largely ignored in academia. It has sold over eight billion copies in more than 2,000 languages. It was written by 40 different men over a period of 1,600 years yet it remains united in its content. It has survived 40 centuries of history. It has more ancient manuscripts to authenticate it than any other ten pieces of ancient literature put together.
In fact there are over 5,000 Greek manuscripts of the New Testament, the oldest dating to around 68AD. Compare this with only nine old copies of ‘Caesar’s Gallic War’ and the oldest of these is 900 years after Caesar died.
Yet nobody questions these?
When copying was being carried out, the Hebrew scribes had enormous reverence for the text of the Bible. Copies were checked, double checked and re-checked many times. If a small mistake was made, the whole page would be re-written. When they came to the word ‘Yaweh‘ meaning God, they would burn the pen and change their clothes.
Only photocopying is more accurate than the methods they followed to preserve the accuracy and integrity of the text. One would think that those who occupy the seats of higher learning would acknowledge the obvious literary merits of the Bible.
It was, after all:
The source of over 1200 quotations used by William Shakespeare in his works
The inspiration for literary giants such as Milton, C.S. Lewis, Sir Walter Scott and Charles Dickens
The Inspiration for Da Vinci’s Last Supper, Michelangelo’s Pieta and Handel’s Messiah which he wrote in 21 days, the entire text coming from The Book of Isaiah
The motivation for the work of Mother Theresa, Abraham Lincoln, Isaac Newton and Martin Luther King
Yet despite its unequalled position as an academic document, the Bible is ignored and withheld from students of literary works.
It is sidelined and boycotted and scoffed at in favor of lesser works of men. You would think that even the humanist non-believer would pay tribute to the academic worth of this mighty tome, and the effect it has had on the history of civilization. But no, all are silent.
Let us now examine those same ancient texts and hear what they reveal concerning a mysterious race which the majority of people have never heard of: the Nephilim.
I would now beg the reader to indulge me somewhat.
For this study, I would ask that you put your mind in neutral.
That is, put aside for the present, your assumptions and prejudices concerning your opinion of the Old Testament scriptures. Allow, for the time being, that they may contain information that is useful and trustworthy and from which we can learn. Think of yourself as a juror awaiting the evidence. After all the facts are heard, you may then reach an informed verdict.
The year is 2348 BC., the year of the Noahtic deluge.
Genesis chapter six provides us with a startling revelation:
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them. That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; And they took them wives of all which they chose.
There were giants (Nephilim) in the earth in those days: and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which where of old, men of renown.
We are informed that the ‘sons of God’ saw the daughters of men and took them as wives. Who are these ‘sons of God‘ and from whence came they? Our first chore is to garner all information on these individuals and allow the material to define our conclusions.
The term ‘sons of God’ is used eight times in the Old Testament. Let us examine some of these.
The following is taken from a debate Yaweh (God) is having with Job:
«Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? Or who hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? Or who laid the cornerstone thereof? When the morning stars sang together, and ALL THE SONS OF GOD shouted for joy.»
In this discourse between Yaweh and Job, there is an obvious reference to the time of the creation of the world. In this context the «sons of God» refers to what we call angels which are created spirit beings.
This is always the case where the expression «sons of God» occurs in the Old Testament.
Who maketh his angels spirits. His ministers a flaming fire.
This also holds true for the New Testament.
But to which of the Angels said he: «Sit on my right hand…» Are they not all ministering spirits…..
Hebrews 1 :13,14
In the book of Daniel, chapter 3, we are told of three men who were thrown into a blazing furnace by the king, Nebuchadnezzar, who then….
….Rose up in haste and said unto his counselors,
«Did we not cast three men into the midst of the fire?»
«Lo, I see four men walking in the midst of the fire and the form of the fourth is like a son of God.»
Nebuchadnezzar goes on to say:
«Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who hath sent His angel and delivered his servents who trusted in him… »
Daniel 3: 24,25,28
It is clear from the above that the fourth being accompanying the three in the fire and referred to as a son of God, is in the following verse called an ‘angel’.
In this next illustration from the Book of Job, we observe a distant gathering of celestial bodies.
Now there was a day when the sons of God (angels) came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them.
In the Hebrew, the word ‘malak’ is translated angel. In the Greek it is aggelos.
But a truer rendering of both these Hebrew and Greek words is agent or messenger. The word angel occurs over 300 times in both the Old and New Testaments. In all these places the word agent or messenger would, in my opinion, be a better translation, as our minds have been muddied and distorted by the word angel.
For when this word is used we immediately conjure up an image of a naked infant cherubim with tiny wings and no genitalia floating around innocently with a little bow and arrow. Or of a huge glorious being with enormous wings protruding from somewhere between his shoulder blades and illuminated from behind by a huge spotlight!
Nothing could be further form the truth.
Later on in this study I shall present a more detailed evaluation of these messengers or agents. But lest we should stray from our present focus, suffice to say that these messengers always appear as men.
They eat and drink and are mistaken for ordinary human beings. Some are referred to by name and are also called ‘men’. So they look like us. They eat and drink like us, they wear clothes and they speak like us. But enough for now.
Let us return to our original train of thought.
In Genesis 6:2 it says:
The sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all that they chose.
Again it becomes clear from this passage that there is a distinction between the «daughters of men» on the one hand, and the «sons of God» on the other. What this verse is implying is that these «sons of God», who were created spirit beings, had sex with ordinary human women, and produced children.
But these were no ordinary offspring.
There were giants (nephilim) in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
The Hebrew word for giants in the above verse is ‘Nephilim’ from the root word naphal meaning to fall.
So the progeny of this irruption by these spirit beings with human women are called giants or Nephilim meaning fallen ones. The fallen spirit men themselves are referred to as Nephilim also. For they fell from grace, fell from Heaven and fell to Earth.
In the course of this book, I shall examine why these spirit beings or messengers became «fallen». But in order to maintain concentration on this present riddle, we shall continue along our study of the Nephilim and their impact on society at the time.
You will notice from the passages quoted that we are told these irruptions happened on two occasions. ie.
«There were giants (Nephilim) in the earth in those days and also after that».
«In those days» refers to the days of Noah. The expression «and also after that» tells us that these Nephilim were also on the earth after the flood of Noah.
So these two irruptions of fallen spirit beings with women occurred both before the Flood and then again some time later. For reasons which will become clearer as we progress this thesis, I will firstly deal with the second irruption which occurred post the Flood. We are given much information about these giants as they inhabited earth in those days.
After examining the evidence concerning them, we shall return to the earlier incursions of the Nephilim before the deluge and how they left their mark on the ancient civilization at that time.
