The Ancient Obelisks of Egypt

Last time, we wrote a little on one of the the symbols of Egyptian worship, the obelisk. Obelisks are four sided column, tapered from base to top with its apex in the form of a pyramid. Pyramids are also a well known Egyptian structure for worship and a tomb for departed pharaoh. The obelisk was also used today in the Washington Monument to honour America's first president, George Washington. It is considered the most famous obelisk, next only to Vatican obelisk. The Washington monument is the largest in the world. The Egyptian obelisks were used to worship their sun god, Ra or to the other nations nearby, this god is Baal, same god of Canaan, one of the enemies of Israel in the biblical times. Baal worship was brought to Egypt by the Hyksos in 18th Dynasty of Egypt, around 1550 BC. They also constructed obelisk to honour their departed pharaohs putting inscriptions for idol Baal to keep them through their "journey" in the afterlife.

Hundreds of obelisks were constructed in ancient Egypt. These obelisks were normally carved from a solid stone, usually granite. Writings were also carved out from the four faces that accurately recorded the person to whom an obelisk was dedicated. Most of them survived through the years and through eras of conflicts from Alexander the Great to the Roman rule, many obelisks were transported from Egypt to many places in the world particularly in Europe. Some were carted away by the Romans to Rome where thirteen obelisks were raised up. The most popular of which was erected in front of the St. Peter's basilica, the center of Catholicism. One was also erected in Istanbul Turkey, while two other in Paris and London. In 1881, Egypt also gave the U.S.A. a gift of obelisk and this one was reconstructed in New York City. For more on obelisk, visit Also visit Cleopatra's Needle in Wikipedia. A caption is shown below.

Cleopatra's Needle is the popular name for each of three Ancient Egyptian obelisks re-erected in London, Paris, and New York City during the nineteenth century. The London and New York ones are a pair, while the Paris one comes from a different original site where its twin remains. Although the needles are genuine Ancient Egyptian obelisks, they are somewhat misnamed as they have no particular connection with Queen Cleopatra VII of Egypt, and were already over a thousand years old in her lifetime. The London "needle" is one such example, as it is originally the work of 18th Dynasty Pharaoh Thutmose III but was falsely named Cleopatra's needles. The Paris "needle" was the first to be moved and re-erected, and the first to acquire the nickname.

Why is the study of the obelisk important? It is important for biblical study because they are not simply a stone structures. They were used as object of worship by ancient Egyptian associated with Baal worship. Anything that was used for worship for false gods, our true God hates. Read this warning from the God of Israel to the Hebrews before they entered the Promise Land in Deuteronomy 7:25–26 –

The images of their gods you are to burn in the fire. Do not covet the silver and gold on them, and do not take it for yourselves, or you will be ensnared by it, for it is detestable to the LORD your God. Do not bring a detestable thing into your house or you, like it, will be set apart for destruction. Utterly abhor and detest it, for it is set apart for destruction.

There was no compromise to that. People today may see the obelisks the other way such as they are archaeological treasures, a part of ancient of history that is meant to keep. But objects of worship according to our God should be detested, set apart for destruction. God set an example to Israel when just one man disobeyed this command and the whole Israel suffered.

In the days of Joshua , the Israelites were in great distress why they were defeated by the very small city of Ai. They later found out that one of their men, Achan, kept devoted things taken secretly from Jericho, another city they previously defeated. Read this story in Joshua 6 and 7.

So what is the implication today if we disobey God's command in Deuteronomy 7:25–26? First remember that the four cities possessing the four obelisks known as Cleopatra's Needles, in New York City, London, Paris and Rome all belong to the western world. They are the people of same origin, they were formerly the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. Read chapters 1 and 2 of the book, The Omega Days. Their god is Yahweh, the same god of ancient Israel. Therefore, this rule applies to them. The implication is still the same. Unless those obelisks are discarded and destroyed, these four cities and their whole nations will be ensnared. That means if there will be war against these nations, they will easily be defeated. That time will absolutely come as the Bible prophesied.

These prophecy will reveal all with brackets, mine:

The ten horns [The Ten Lost Tribes of Israel - Europe] are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings [Italy, France, Great Britain]. He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws (Daniel 7:24).

After conquering the three nations, Italy, France and Great Britain, all of Europe or the European Union will fall. Then the Antichrist will invade Israel and then the U.S.A., his price catch. Soon we will witness the New World Order.

He will pitch his royal tents between the seas at the beautiful holy mountain. Yet he will come to his end, and no one will help him (Daniel 11:45).

The U.S.A. is between two great oceans, the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans. It is a blessed nation, the recipient of the physical promise to Abraham. U.S.A. is Manasseh, one of the two sons of Joseph, once a ruler in Egypt-- that is why she is beautiful and holy mountain, mountain being a big nation. Washington D.C. has also a modern obelisk, the largest in the world. New York City possesses also one of the ancient obelisks of Egypt. Manasseh became the modern Egypt in our age.

Soon, we shall see the Antichrist ruling the world as a fierce pharaoh in the United Nations, New York City.

The Antichrist will set his throne in New York City. This City is the prophesied as the new Tyre, and her twin harbour, New Jersey seaport as modern Sidon. Read chapter 5 of the book for details. Tyre and Sidon are always mentioned in the prophecies symbolizing the modern seaports of New York and New Jersey. Soon we will see the Antichrist sitting in the United Nations headquarters ruling the world, also located in New York City.

When you see “the abomination that causes desolation ” standing where it does not belong [let the reader understand] then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains (Mark 13:14).

The four cities mentioned will bear the fiercest anger of the Antichrist against the Christians and in these four cities, he will set up the abomination that causes desolation. That is the consequence of bearing the obelisks of Egypt. Indeed, the coming Antichrist will rule a a Pharaoh in the nation of modern Egypt, the U.S.A. He will make himself as a new god and will abolish all religions. Those days is what we call the Great Tribulation. He will use the same god of ancient Egypt as the new god and he himself as the personification of that god.

In the end, the Lord Jesus Christ will come again and will break apart the kingdom of the Antichrist to finally rule as King of kings and Lord of lords.
