Is the Great Pyramid of Giza the work of Pagans or is it the inspired work of a man of God?
The mystery of the Great Pyramid of Giza has been discussed and made the subject of countless books and documentaries over the years. Brother William Branham speaks about and explains that the Pyramid was built by Enoch.
Enoch and them built it, years ago, and it stands for a symbol. Just the same as the sun rises and sets; just the same as the tree drops its—its leaf, and comes back again; as a fish, and the cattle, and everything else symbolizes it. That pyramid stands as a symbol.

There are several interesting connections that link the Great Pyramid of Giza to the God of the Bible. We find that Josephus, the Jewish historian from the days of Jesus, explains this about the Pillars or monuments created by the sons of Adam.
… Adam’s prediction that the world was to be destroyed at one time by the force of fire, and at another time by the violence and quantity of water, they made two pillars: (13) the one of brick, the other of stone: they inscribed their discoveries on them both: that in case the pillar of brick should be destroyed by the flood, the pillar of stone might remain, and exhibit those discoveries to mankind: and also inform them that there was another pillar of brick erected by them. Now this remains in the land of Siriad (Not Syria, but modern day Egypt-Ed) to this day. ~Flavius Josephus of the Antiquities of the Jews — Book I
The book of Isaiah declares that in Egypt there would be a witness for the Lord.
“In that day there shall be an altar to the lord, in the midst of the land of Egypt, and a pillar at the border thereof to the Lord. And it shall be for a sign and for a witness unto the Lord of Hosts in the land of Egypt;” (Isaiah 19:19,20)
The Great Pyramid of Giza fits the description of being in the midst of the Land of Egypt and on the border thereof.
One might point out that the Bible and Josephus both use the term Pillar, they do not use the term Pyramid. But we find that the word Pillar can mean monument and is not just a term for columns.
For example Absalom’s Pillar in 2 Samuel 18:18
“Now Absalom in his lifetime had taken and reared up for himself a pillar, which is in the king’s dale: for he said, I have no son to keep my name in remembrance: and he called the pillar after his own name: and it is called unto this day, Absalom’s place.”
So the terminology is perfectly alright.
Even the Masons, criticized for their ritual practices, believed the Great Pyramid of Giza was built by Enoch.
The Greek Christians supposed him (Enoch) to have been identical with the first Egyptian Hermes, who dwelt at Sais. They say he was the first to give instruction on the celestial bodies; that he foretold the deluge that was to overwhelm his descendants; and that he built the Pyramids, engraving thereon figures of artificial instruments and the elements of the sciences, fearing lest the memory of man should perish in that general destruction.
Yes, there are certain commonalities that point to the Great Pyramid as being connected to the God of the Bible! But this is just the tip of the iceberg as to how divinely inspired the Great Pyramid is. The Pyramid, a monument in the simplicity of hewn stone, has stood a silent symbol for over 4000 years exactly as the prophet of God stated.
