Continuing our discussion from part two, as we have seen, there exists substantial Scriptural evidence which strongly suggests that rather than being shaped like a cube, as some Christians believe, the Heavenly City, New Jerusalem, may actually be a great golden pyramid that measures 1,500 miles on each side of its huge base, and 1,500 miles in height. As I pointed out a moment ago, the Prophet Isaiah appears to be describing the same exact thing as the Apostle John in the Book of Revelation. When Isaiah says "mountain of the LORD's house" and "mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob", he is not referring to the old city of Jerusalem in the nation of Israel, or to a new temple being built in that city, as has been supposed by some Jews, and certain Zionist Christians as well.
That is an utterly false doctrine which is meant to promote the Zionist agenda. Any person who diligently studies the Scriptures can easily expose the fallacy of this erroneous doctrine, beginning with what Isaiah wrote himself. Isaiah would not write that an actual, physical, rebuilt temple in the earthly city of Jerusalem is the house of God, and then turn around and write the following at the end of his Book:
"Thus saith the LORD, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?"
Isaiah 66:1, KJV
It does not make any sense that Isaiah would supposedly say that God needs a house in which to dwell in one chapter, and then turn around later and plainly state that God does not need a house. As I explain in other articles such as "Is the KJV Bible the Inerrant Word of God?", Stephen was stoned to death by the hateful, unbelieving Jews in the Book of Acts, for preaching this very same truth. He quoted right from the Book of Isaiah before they murdered him. Furthermore, even Jesus plainly explained that God does not require or need a physical house or temple, when He spoke to the Samaritan woman at the well, as we see by the following verses which are found in the Gospel of John:
"Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."
John 4:21-24, KJV
You will find similar verses in my KJV Bible Verse List that is called "Our True Spiritual Temple" on the Bill's Bible Basics website.
In the previous verses which I shared with you at the end of part two, Isaiah clearly informs us that New Jerusalem towers above all of the hills and mountains. It is the great City of Light, which is lit by the Lord Himself. That is why in those same verses, Isaiah clearly writes "let us walk in the light of the LORD." Consider these verses that we find in the Book of Revelation which reveal what Isaiah really meant:
"And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal . . . And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it."
Revelation 21:10-11, 22-24, KJV
"And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever."
Revelation 22:5, KJV
That is the light that the Prophet Isaiah is talking about, and it is found in no place but Mount Zion, New Jerusalem, the Heavenly City. It is not Jerusalem, Israel, or a new temple built in that city for the Lord. As the previous verses clearly state "I saw no temple therein." Please get those erroneous thoughts out of your head, because it is Zionist propaganda, and nothing more. It is a deception. No temple means exactly that; no temple. If God does not need or require a temple, then why do the false Jews continue to insist on building a third temple? Exactly which lord will they be building it for, if they even ever really do it? It certainly won't be the Lord who has already told us plainly that He does not need or require a house or temple.
Some of my Christian friends need to wake up and realize that quite a few Bible verses and prophecies have been purposely hijacked and manipulated by certain Zionists -- including the Christian Zionists -- in order to promote Israel, Jerusalem and the supposed superiority of the Jews over the world. For a clear example of what I am talking about, please consider reading the seven-part series entitled "Psalm 83 War False Doctrine Exposed!". If a third temple is really ever built, as I said, it will just be a deception; including for many pro-Israel Christians who have been mesmerized by the false Jews. So watch out! Don't you become deceived!
To reiterate what I shared with you earlier, "the mountain of the LORD'S house" of which the Prophet Isaiah speaks, is the very same house that Jesus spoke about in the fourteenth chapter of John when He said "In my Father's house are many mansions." Let me share those wonderful verses with you one more time to drive the point home:
"In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."
John 14:2-3, KJV
That is the real mountain of the Lord's house, my friends, and it is full of Heavenly Mansions. I can't even begin to imagine how many mansions would fit into a Golden Pyramid of that amazing size, can you? It is interesting to note that the Prophet Micah wrote about the Heavenly Zion as well. In fact, much of it is word for word what Isaiah wrote, which leads me to suspect that Micah may have been quoting from the Book of Isaiah, even though the text does not say this directly. Consider the opening verses of chapter four:
"But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem."
Micah 4:1-2, KJV
As I explain in such articles as "One From Beyond: Hebrew of Hebrews", since the times of the Old Testament period, the Patriarchs and the children of faith have always known about that wonderful City of Light in the sky, which at the present time remains hidden from our view; and they have earnestly sought for it as well. This is made evident by verses such as the following. Please note that these verse are found in the same Epistle which only a chapter later discusses the spiritual Mount Zion and the New Jerusalem:
"These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country. And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city."
Hebrews 11:13-16, KJV
The key -- as we are also told in the Book of Revelation -- is to persevere in our faith, and to not be overcome by the cares and snares of this current life. Consider this verse:
"Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name."
Revelation 3:12, KJV
As I mentioned in part one, this series was the result of one of my Facebook friends claiming that God would never utilize a pyramidal design in the creation of Mount Zion -- that is, the Heavenly City, or New Jerusalem -- because the Egyptians used it as well. Therefore, according to my friend, the Lord would view a pyramid as being evil. While I have explained to you why I do not believe that this is so, as I mention in a number of other articles, it's also important to realize that Satan is both a usurper and a great imitator. In other words, there is nothing original about him. He merely copies, twists and perverts what he sees God do. This is reflected not only in the pyramids of Egypt, but also in the ziggurats of Iraq and Iran -- which were previously known as Mesopotamia and Persia -- as well as in the pyramids which are likewise found throughout Mexico, Central America and other nations of Latin America. As we discussed earlier, many of these pyramids were the site of violent human sacrifices. In my view, this leaves no doubt regarding who inspired these structures, as well as the false religions which were associated with them.
We witness this very same architectural design in a number of modern buildings as well. Following is a partial list of some of the more impressive pyramid-shaped structures in the modern world:
1. Arabian Blade in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (planned)
2. Dubai City Tower in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (planned)
3. Louvre Pyramid in Paris, France
4. Luxor Hotel in the Devil's playground of Las Vegas, Nevada
5. Pyramid Arena in Memphis, Tennessee
6. Ryugyong Hotel in Pyongyang, North Korea
7. Shimizu TRY 2004 Mega-City Pyramid in Tokyo, Japan (planned)
8. Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco, California
9. Walter Pyramid stadium in Long Beach, California
Why is it that modern man is so fascinated by the pyramidal design, and who inspires him to build such structures? If we consider the fact that many of these huge buildings are for the most part devoted to Big Business and making a profit, or else in some way cater to the sinful desires of the flesh, it is not difficult to determine that the entity behind these structures appears to be the false god of this current world; who as we have already seen, is Satan himself. He is in fact the king of corruption and pleasure, who constantly tempts us with the vices of the flesh. The city of Las Vegas, Nevada -- and similar "sin cities" -- are clear evidence of this. I am reminded of the following verses:
"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."
1 John 2:15-17, KJV
"In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them."
2 Corinthians 4:4, KJV
"Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God."
James 4:4, KJV
So the choice is yours. You can choose the ways of the world with all of its fleshly enticements, and maybe earn yourself a gold watch at the end of your long pointless life, or else you can choose to accept Jesus Christ, dedicate your life to the Lord's service, and walk in the wonderful City of Light -- Mount Zion, New Jerusalem, the Heavenly City -- someday when the Lord calls you Home. By God's Grace, I know which road I am following. How about you? Choose wisely, my friend.
