Israel and the New Jerusalem: Symbolic Shofars Tied to Orion, Canis Major, and the Feast of Trumpets

Excerpt from “The Language of God in History”,
Chapter 3, pages 178 thru 183:


Could Stonehenge have been built by the righteous human followers of Yahweh with the aid of holy Watchers like Uriel, and was it made to instruct mankind about their ultimate purpose? This is certainly possible and would explain why it exhibits knowledge that the common people of that time era were generally ignorant of. If so, it is just as likely that the Pillar of Enoch (i.e. Great Pyramid) in Egypt was built by the Sethites with the aid of the Watchers to preserve their knowledge of the coming Messiah for future generations. In addition, this mighty pyramid may stand as a symbol for the ultimate place of the righteous in Christ’s everlasting Kingdom. Indeed, the truth that the Great Pyramid represents the Kingdom of God seems to be encoded in Scripture since Mount Zion appears to refer to the Great Pyramid and its heavenly counterpart:
“Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father’s name written on their foreheads.” - Revelation 14:1 (NKJ)

Could it be that - on one fateful day during the Great Tribulation - Christ will literally stand atop the Great Pyramid with His 144,000 Witnesses just as Revelation 14:1 intimates? If so, will Christ cap and complete that unfinished pyramid at that time? It certainly is possible that Christ and His Witnesses will repair and finish this artificial mountain that was built in Christ’s honor by our righteous ancestors. At that time, they may also reconsecrate that magnificent ancient altar to God. After that, Christ may send His Witnesses to preach in the four corners of the Earth - corners that are appropriately signified by the Great Pyramid’s four corners.

In direct contrast to this, the small Pyramid at Giza attributed to Pharaoh Menkaure signifies the robber that rejected Christ on Calvary and the scapegoat on the Day of Atonement. This goat was also known as the Azazel goat signifying the fallen Watcher Azazel (i.e. Satan):
“When Aaron has finished making atonement for the Most Holy Place, the Tent of Meeting and the altar, he shall bring forward the live goat. He is to lay both hands on the head of the live goat and confess over it all the wickedness and rebellion of the Israelites… and put them on the goat's head. He shall send the goat away into the desert… The goat will carry on itself all their sins to a solitary place; and the man shall release it in the desert.” - Leviticus 16:20-22

The ritual of total abandonment described in the preceding Scripture graphically portrays what Hell will be like for Satan and all those who follow him in rebellion against God. Like the scapegoat, all unrepentant sinners will be abandoned forever in a barren, lifeless place of unending heat, thirst and everlasting torment. And like the scapegoat, they will forever remain spirits whose mortal resurrected bodies will perish in the heat of the Lake of Fire, and whose spirits will never be able to escape from it. This is the horrible fate that awaits all the angels and people who rebel against God without remorse. Indeed, there will be no escape for anyone who refuses to worship the Lamb or humbly accept His sacrifice for their sins. How tragic that so many currently seem destined to dwell in Hell forever. May Yahweh help them all!

Another fact of the crucifixion represented at Giza is that the whole grisly event occurred just outside the walls of the old city of Jerusalem. Likewise, Giza is just outside of the much greater area that the New Jerusalem will one day encompass, which will include all of the Sinai Wilderness to Egypt’s eastern desert border, and all of the land north of modern Israel up to the borders of the Euphrates River as per Revelation 21:16:
“The city is laid out as a square; its length is as great as its breadth. And he measured the city with the reed: twelve thousand furlongs (or stadia). Its length, breadth, and height are equal.”

Note that the New Jerusalem is described as having an enormous square base, with each side of the city being 12,000 furlongs or stadia in length. Now, one stadium is 600 feet long, meaning that the New Jerusalem will have an incredible side length of 7,200,000 feet! Since there are 5,280 feet in a statute mile, the New Jerusalem will measure 1,363.63 miles per side, and its height will equal that length! So, though this could be envisioned as a giant cube-shaped city, it is more likely that the New Jerusalem will mimic the aesthetically beautiful shape of the Great Pyramid - only on a much grander scale!

If so, the Great Pyramid may be a small representation of the New Jerusalem. Also known as the City of God, the New Jerusalem will be the everlasting home of Christ’s Bride, the True Church. It will cover all the territory once belonging to the ancient Kingdom of Israel, stretching all the way to Egypt in the south and Turkey in the north. Like old Jerusalem, the Great Pyramid, Great Sphinx and the Sphinx Temple may also receive a makeover in eternity so that they can forever commemorate Christ’s death and resurrection outside of the New Jerusalem’s sacred walls.

Uncannily, there are other secrets hidden in this region that will one day serve as the foundation of the New Jerusalem. One of them is found in the shape of the Kingdom of Ancient Israel, which covered about the same amount of land as the New Jerusalem will one day. As shown in the first illustration on page 181, this land area is roughly in the shape of a Shofar, or trumpet made from a Ram’s Horn, as shown in the illustration inset. Why hasn’t anyone seemed to notice this, or comment on the fact that this Shofar appears to follow the same path as the great highway that will reach from Egypt to Assyria during the Millennial Rule of Christ? In addition, it may trace the path that the 144,000 Witnesses will take after meeting Yahshua on Mount Zion during the Great Tribulation, and the path that Yahshua will take when He comes to save Israel in the Battle of Armageddon.

Intriguingly, several Scriptures connected to the Day of the Lord mention the sounding of a great trumpet, a highway stretching from Egypt to Assyria, the city of Jerusalem, and the Lord (Yahweh) coming out of Zion to rescue Jacob or Israel:
“In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrian will come into Egypt and the Egyptian into Assyria, and the Egyptians will serve with the Assyrians.” - Isaiah 19:23 (NKJ)

“In that day the LORD (Yahweh) will thresh from the flowing Euphrates to… Egypt, and you, O Israelites, will be gathered up… And in that day a great trumpet will sound. Those who were perishing in Assyria and those who were exiled in Egypt will come and worship the LORD (Yahweh) on the holy mountain in Jerusalem.” - Isaiah 27:12-13 (NIV)

“Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD (Yahweh) brings back the captivity of His people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.” - Psalm 14:7 (NKJ)

“Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble; for the day of the LORD (Yahweh) is coming, for it is at hand: A day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness…” - Joel 2:1-2 (NKJ)

“And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: ‘The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; For this is My covenant with them, when I take away their sins.’” - Romans 11:26-27 (NKJ) (also see Isaiah 59:20-21)

Israel as Yahshua’s Shofar or Ram’s Horn

Note that the first of the five Scriptures just quoted appears shortly after Isaiah’s prophetic reference to the Great Pyramid as the Altar to Yahweh “in the midst of the land of Egypt” (Isaiah 19:19). These Scriptures make it fairly clear that Zion, Egypt, Israel, Jerusalem, and Assyria are all connected to the trumpet imagery of the Bible surrounding the coming of the Day of the Lord, or the Millennial Rule of Christ. As such, they all may collectively be seen as a part of Zion, though the Pillar of Enoch seems to have been the first place on Earth labeled that way.

Another hidden meaning related to Israel as a symbolic ram’s horn trumpet is found in looking at a new constellation that has been added to the sky between Canis Major, Canis Minor, and Orion. This constellation happens to be called Monoceros, and - as shown in the second illustration on page 181 - it is within the boundaries of the triangle formed by connecting Al Nitak, Sirius and Procyon with lines. Monoceros means “One Horned” as found in a unicorn, and - as shown in Book Four - a unicorn can serve both as a symbol for Christ - and the Antichrist. It can also represent the right horn of Taurus, which is connected to the Tribe of Ephraim representing Gentile Christianity.

Now, if Monoceros were to be depicted on the Earth, its stars would signify various locales within the triangle-shaped Sinai Wilderness between Israel and Egypt. In other words, in the recent past, God saw to it that what I am revealing here would be verified and divinely acknowledged by the creation of a new constellation called “One Horned” in the bowl portion of a symbolic horn or trumpet formed by Israel’s old borders!

This suggests that Yahshua, the One-Horned Ram foreseen by Enoch - as opposed to the One-Horned Goat belonging to the Antichrist seen by Daniel - will come from Zion (i.e. the Great Pyramid) with an army of saints and angels, will go into Israel from that direction, and then will go as far as Assyria to conquer the Antichrist’s armies and re-establish the old boundaries of Israel under King David.

All of this horn and trumpet symbolism that is tied to Israel is also connected to the animal horns blown on Rosh Hashanah, or the Feast of Trumpets, and the animals sacrificed on the Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur. Ideally, animals sacrificed as sin and atonement offerings sported horns. Though Yahshua did not have literal horns on His head like rams or goats, John the Baptist called our Messiah “the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world” (John 1:29).

Indeed, even the very shape of the land of Israel from the air recognizes Yahshua’s symbolic role as the One Horned Ram of Yahweh who died for our sins. In addition, the sounding of trumpets is mentioned repeatedly in connection with the Rapture of the True Church, which will likely occur before Yahshua’s Second Coming (Mat. 24:31; 1 Cor. 15:52; 1 Thess. 4:16; Rev. 4:1).
