Of all the ancient wonders, only the Pyramids at Giza remain, they are the oldest of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World and the only ones that were not completely destroyed by man or nature. I am most certain of this, that God in His wisdom allowed them to stand for they are testament to the great escape of the nation of Israel from Egypt, being led out by Moses. They are thus a subject I find hugely fascinating.
The largest of the pyramids was built for Pharaoh Khufu and it is believed that its original height would have been 146.5 metres but currently stand at 138.8 metres due to erosion and the removal of the outer layers reused to build other structures. One of the most interesting facts are that the corners were built to astounding precision to be aligned with the four cardinal compass points. This precision is astounding considering that the pyramids were built around 2500 BC.
Another astounding discovery were the two shafts built in the North and South walls of the King's chamber that run all the way to the outer walls and were believed to be shafts used for the King's spirit to ascend to the heaven's.
Every nation and every King will bow before the Cross of Jesus and these Pharaoh's too will stand before Jesus at the great judgement. The testament of the Pyramids of Giza is not in their great construction but in the power of our Great God to deliver all spirits from slavery!
