WHO BUILT THE GREAT PYRAMID?

 

The “Great Pyramid” was built during the reign of Cheops, and Herodotus tells us that it took the labor of 100,000 men 20 years to build it, and that during its building the idol temples of Egypt were closed. Manetho, an Egyptian priest, records how at that time – “the Deity was displeased with us; and there came up from the East in a strange manner, men of an ignoble race, who had the confidence to invade our country and easily subdued it by their power without a battle. And when they had our rulers in their hands they demolished the temples of the gods.” This state of things continued during the reign of Cheops and his successor, but when Mycedrius, or Mencheres, began to reign, he re-opened the temples, and restored the worship of the gods. Manetho styled these kings, “HYKSOS” or “Shepherd Kings,” who were reputed to be Arabians, that afterward left Egypt in large numbers and went up to Judea and built a city named Jerusalem.

  

Herodotus tells us that they called the pyramids after “PHILLITION,” a shepherd who at that time fed his flocks about the place. This “PHILITION,” or “PHILITIS,” appears to have been the Architect of the Great Pyramid. He was an Arabian, but went up to Philistia in Judea with those who went up, and was known in Manetho’s time as “PHILITION,” the Philistine. Who then was “PHILITION”? Some have identified him with Shem, others with Melchisedec, but the writer believes he was “JOB.” Job was the greatest man in the East, or Arabia. Job. 1:3. His age (he lived to be nearly 250 years old) places him back before the days of Abraham (B. C.  2000), who lived to the age of 175 years, and locates him as living at the time when the Great Pyramid was built. And in the 38th chapter of Job, The Almighty speaks to Job as if he was the identical person who built the Great Pyramid, laying its foundations, and placing its “Capstone” in position, while the people shouted for joy. That Job has great meteorological and astronomical knowledge is clear from the way God spoke to him about the snow (vs. 22), and the rain (vs. 25-28), and the ice (vs. 29-30), and the heavenly bodies (vs. 31-32), and the weather probabilities (vs. 33-34), and electricity (vs. 35), and there can be no question but what God would impart to such a man as Job, who was so God-fearing and spiritual, that he was both a prince and a priest, all the Scriptural and prophetical knowledge that is embodied in the arrangement of the passageways and chambers of the Great Pyramid. It does not follow, however, that Job knew the symbolic meaning of the construction of the Great Pyramid any more than the Prophets understood their prophecies. 1 Pet. 1:10-12. The Almighty may have given to Job the plan of the Great Pyramid, as Moses was given the plan of the Tabernacle and its furnishing on Mount Sinai.

  

There is no question but what the people of Job’s day were well versed in the mechanic arts. It was not long after the Flood, and the skill of the artisans of Noah’s day, and of the Babel builders had not been lost. This is evident from the Temples and Palaces of Egypt that were built in those days. But the Great Pyramid was unlike any of them. It was a new kind of Architecture, the first of its kind, and such as the world had never seen before. The plainness of its outlines, and the slope and smoothness of its sides, and the absence of all ornamentation, was a striking contrast to the Egyptian style of Architecture. Whence came it? It must have come from some source not Egyptian. Why? Because there was a purpose in its building. It was build to record mathematical, astronomical, and Scriptural knowledge, that should bear witness to the inspiration of the Scriptures in these last days. That accounts for its peculiar architectural shape, and the character of its interior construction. To that end it was sealed up that in the closing days of this Dispensation it might disclose its message to an unbelieving world.
