Cyrus, there seems to be several points you overlook.
Firstly, a 60 x 20 cubit temple would not be considered a " WONDER " when you compare it to the Great Pyramid.
This 60 x 20 temple was not " HIGH" by any standard, however one would consider the Great Pyramid to be "HIGH"
Further proof of the Great and Wonderful House being "HIGH" is seen in this verse;
2Ch 9:4 And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel; his cupbearers also,
and their apparel; and his ascent by which he went up into the house of the LORD; there was no more spirit in her.
Clearly in that verse it shows that King Solomon "WENT UP" into the house of the lord, it was an "Awesome" sight to behold, the way he "Ascended
Up" into the Great Pyramid.
A little common sense woud tell you that the people would stand in "AWE" of the Great Pyramid as apposed to a 60 x 20 temple, excluding the fact
that you could not fit even the 100,000 tons of Iron in a 60 x 20 cubit space, it is a rediculous assumption that all the materials went into building
a temple 60 x 20 cubits.
To the Talents
A Talent of Gold was twice the weight of a Talent of Silver
A Talent of Gold was equal to approx. 190 lbs.
A Talent of Silver was approx. 95 lbs.
To make the math much easier I rounded them both out so that 100 Talents of Gold equaled 1 Ton, and 200 Talents of Silver equaled 1 Ton.
If you just look at all the materials alone, they would not fit in a 60 x 20 cubit space and this does not include the stone blocks that were used.
King Solomon had the manpower, the resources, the associates necessary, the skilled craftsmen, the abundance of diamonds necessary for the saws they
used to cut the stone blocks. He had the ability and know-how to move the blocks over great distances,
This is what the abundance of timber
was used for, to move the Blocks. The Great And Wonderful House was made of Stone Blocks, the same kind
and size blocks that were used in the Great Pyramid.
He used axle carts to transport the blocks and also the "Tens of Thousands of Tons" of Gold, Silver, Brass and Iron King Solomon possessed, that
went into the building of the Giza Plateau Structures. He also used the wood from the trees of Lebanon to build the carts, the ships and other
equipment necessary to complete this Great Project.
It is clear from the Bible that he built other "CITIES" also throughout the land of Egypt.
He had tens of thousands of Chariots and Horsemen that would bring people up from lower Egypt to BEHOLD the "MAGNIFICENT CITY OF GOD" AND GOD'S
HOUSE, THE GREAT PYRAMID.
King Solomon Built "HEAVEN ON EARTH" Silver was as stones on the ground in this Great City.
All of this is recorded in the Bible.
The Giza Plateau was a Earthly representation and foreshadow of the "New Jerusalem" that we see coming down from Heaven to the Earth in the Book Of
Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I
heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and
God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
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 the City had
a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of
the children of Israel:
And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. And the city lieth foursquare, and the
length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it
are equal. And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. And the
building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
We also know that originaly the Great Pyramid was covered with "White" limestone casing stones with writings over them, just like the "White
Stone" with writings God will give us..
Re 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and
will give him a "White Stone"
, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
To get an Idea of the Grandeur of this City, the Bible tells the story of one particular visitor and her visit to the Giza Plateau for the first
The Queen of Sheba had heard about this Great City and the House King Solomon had built unto the Lord. The stories she had heard of the city were so
fascinating that they were unbelievable. She decided to take the long journey to Jerusalem to see for herself. She brought with her as a gift to the
King, "SIX TONS" of Gold along with an abundance of precious stones and materials. Upon her arrival she was "AWE STRUCK" and "FAINTED"
After she was revived she made these comments: This City far exceeds all that was told unto me and actually, the Half was not told The exceeding Glory
of this City is truly astounding..
The Great Pyramid is 481 feet high which equals 288 Cubits, which is 2 x 144 Cubits
The Sphinx is 240 feet long which equals 144 Cubits. 240 feet also represents 6 x 40, Forty Years Israel wandered in the wilderness before they went
into the land flowing with milk and honey which was the Giza Plateau. 6 is also the number of man and is also encoded in the structures.
The Sphinx is 66 feet high
The 144,000 is the number of the 12 Tribes of Israel, that have the "Everlasting Gospel To Preach To The World befor the setting up of the "Eternal
Kingdom" of the last days, each tribe contains 12,000 Men.
Within the Kings Chamber of the Great Pyramid there is a "Coffer" the measurements of the coffer are 51 inches long by 31 inches high, this equals 2
1/2 Cubits by 1 1/2 Cubit, this is the �Exact� same size as the "ARK OF THE COVENANT"
The width of the Kings Chamber is 34 feet or 20 Cubits.
King Solomon had a pair of Golden Cherubim's made and placed in a inner room of God�s House (The Great Pyramid) The Wings of these Cherubim touched
from one wall to the other wall in this inner room. The Wingspan of the two Cherubim combined side by side equaled "EXACTLY" TWENTY CUBITS or 34
feet, the same as the width of the Kings Chamber.
The Sphinx faces east, towards the rising of the Sun, the dawn of day. WHY ?
It is awaiting the"'DAWN OF A NEW DAY" in which the Giza Plateau will be transformed into a "GREATER GLORY" than that of the Days of King
The Day that the "NEW JERUSALEM" will come down form Heaven and the "KINGDOM OF GOD" will be established on Earth "FOREVER"
