Stonehenge, a circular structure of abandoned stones stands in a field two hours south-west of London. Over the years it has been called a temple, a burial ground, a celestial observatory, an eclipse predictor and just a pile of old stones. Many have dug all around and within Stonehenge and postulated on pottery, deer antlers, clay jars and compaction profiles of the dirt and chalk that make up the ground. Books have been written to “decode”, “solve” or “uncover” Stonehenge and yet there is still very much hidden about who designed it and why.
Stonehenge, like the Pyramid of Giza, is a witness in stone. It is a witness in itself of the Architect who designed it. As for why, well, that is really the most important part and where this article will lead you.
Before diving into Stonehenge, let’s get more familiar with what it is. Stonehenge is considered a ‘megalithic’ monument because of the sheer size and weight of the remaining standing stones. The picture above is what remains today, while the image below shows the complete monument. Stonehenge is not the only ‘henge‘. There are many henges throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe, with a large concentration of them in the area of Stonehenge. Take a look at the image below as you step through this abbreviated list of prominent features.
- The Aubrey Circle is just inside the inner ditch. It consists of 56 holes that contained standing stones or posts.
- Adjacent to the Aubrey Circle are four station stones forming a rectangle.
- The Sarsen circle is the prominent stone circle. It was made of 30 stones supporting 30 horizontal lintels forming a ring.
- Inside the Sarsen circle is the bluestone circle made up of much smaller standing stones.
- Lastly, we have the five large gate-like structures called trilithons that straddle the axis in a horseshoe shape.
Stonehenge Solar Alignments
Perhaps the most well known feature of Stonehenge are the solar alignments. The axis of Stonehenge, tilted 51 degrees to the East of North aligns with the Summer Solstice sunrise and the Winter Solstice sunset. For centuries, people have gathered in the center of the circles to observe the first light of the sun as it rises on or around June 21st. The lesser observed alignment on December 21st or 22nd is the setting of the Winter Solstice Sun directly between the gaps of what were the two largest trilithon uprights and their supported lintel. The picture to the right below is of the Winter Solstice sunset gracing the side of the ‘heel stone’ from the ‘avenue’ about 270 feet away from the center of Stonehenge.
These are not the only Solar alignments recorded at Stonehenge. Sight lines through the trilithon gates and Sarsen circle openings also mark the Summer solstice sunset and the winter solstice sunrise.
Determining a Solstice
Determining when a solstice will occur is not easy with only making naked-eye observations. Throughout the year, the Sunrise and Sunset locations on the horizon move. As we near a Solstice, the sun appears to rise in the same location on the horizon day after day. In other words, the Sun stands still, the definition of a Solstice. Think of a pendulum swinging to its highest point at which it stops before it goes back down in the other direction. The point at which the pendulum stops is comparable to a solstice day.
Now, think of the horizon as a flat 360 circle around you. If a person far off in the distance walks one quarter of the circle around you, they will have traveled 90 degrees, an observation you can clearly see. But if they walk less than a fraction of a degree of arc you will have a difficult time seeing the difference between their start and stop locations. As the solstice approaches, the sun rise and set locations on the horizon are less than 1/15th of a degree of arc for about a 16 day window. The change is less than 1/60th of a degree of arc for the 3 days before and the 3 days after the actual solstice. This is exactly why pagan sun worship practices, and the current holidays that stem from them, have their major holidays on or around the winter solstice. It is the ‘re-birth’ of the sun when the days get longer, and the sun rises higher in the sky and the sun starts moving along the horizon back from where it came.
Below is a diagram of the Sun rise and set alignments next to the sun path chart at the latitude of Stonehenge. ‘A’ at the Summer Sunrise location on the left coincides with ‘A’ at the bottom of the sun path chart. The blue curved lines are the paths taken by the sun throughout the year. Notice how the 1 month gaps between blue lines decrease when approaching the solstices. The Architect of Stonehenge has recorded the path of the Sun in the stone structure! The Summer Solstice Sunrise and the Winter Solstice Sunset locations are the axis on which Stonehenge was designed and built.
The Pi Angle
We have just seen that the axis of Stonehenge is based on the rising and setting of the Sun. That axis is 51 degrees East of North. Stonehenge is also just above the 51st parallel. It’s exact latitude is 51o 10′ 44″ North.
51o or 51o51′ is the “pi” angle found in the dimensions of the Earth and Moon! Take the diameter of the earth (7,920 miles) and divide by the radius of the earth and moon combined (5,040 miles) as shown in the left picture below. You will get 1.57 or half the value of pi. The value of pi is 3.14, the ratio between any circle’s diameter to its circumference! Similarly, any isosceles triangle with a width of 11 and a height of 7 or some multiple thereof has an angle of 51o 51′. This exact same ratio is contained in the pyramid of Giza, a 1:43,200 scale model of the earth and moon. That’s an interesting number because the radius of the Sun is 432,000 miles, but we digress! Take a look at the pictures below before we see the connection with Stonehenge.
Stonehenge is also a scale model of the earth and moon relationship in the same way as the pyramid of Giza, except this time the scale is 1:528,000. The bluestone circle has a diameter of 79.2 feet while the diameter of the Earth is 7,920 miles. The mean diameter of the Sarsen Circle is 100.8 feet which makes the radius 50.4 feet. The radius of the Earth and Moon combined is 5,040 miles.
How amazing it is?! When you scale up the size of Stonehenge and then convert those dimensions to miles the numbers are the same! Stonehenge is not just a scale model of the earth and moon, the very scale of 1:528,000 works perfectly with a 5,280 foot mile. These recurring numbers do not work with kilometers and meters. The number 528 is a key to Stonehenge.
Two stone monuments, the Pyramid of Giza and Stonehenge, both contain scaled down measurements of the earth and moon. These two stone witnesses of God’s creations are keyed to a 51o angle, the “pi” angle. 51o is also the same angle required to see a double rainbow. The rainbow is a sign of the Covenant (Genesis 9:13) or in this case a double or second Covenant, the New Covenant.
Stonehenge Points to the Pyramid of Giza
We’ve just seen one connection between Stonehenge and the Pyramid of Giza, but amazingly Stonehenge actually points to Giza, literally. There are four station stones around the largest circle of pits called the Aubrey circle. A line drawn from the western-most station stone to the eastern-most station stone diagonally through the center of the monument is in the direction of 118o from North. If you extend this line 2,236 miles you will land on the Pyramid of Giza. Wow! The architect of Stonehenge is pointing to the Pyramid of Giza! You can test this out for yourself at this website, no affiliation. Another connection, from many more, is the diameter of the outer ditch of Stonehenge. The outer ditch diameter is 378 feet, exactly half the length of one side of the pyramid of Giza at 756 feet.
Stonehenge Lunar Alignments
Stonehenge not only contains alignment with Solar events, but it also links to the movements of the moon. The rectangle formed by the four station stones mark the movements of the moon specific to this latitude. Unlike the Sun, which traverses between its extreme rising and setting locations over a year, the moon has an 18.6 year cycle. The extreme settings form a right angle with the solar alignments only within a narrow band of about 30 miles of the latitude of Stonehenge. At other latitudes such as the linked example in Ohio, they form octagons. The Architect of Stonehenge has perfectly recorded the extreme movements of the moon!
Setting the Pace
So far we have seen that Stonehenge records solar and lunar alignments, points directly to the Pyramid of Giza and is a 528,000th scale model of the Earth and Moon. What we’re about to see is that Stonehenge also contains a standard measurement that confirms the length of a mile in feet and connects to the measurements of men.
One mile equals 5,280 feet which is equivalent to 8 furlongs or 1760 yards. The word mile comes from the Latin phrase of mille passus meaning 1,000 paces. The Roman mile was shorter than the imperial or standard mile of today, but the concept of 1,000 paces is important. Like many things appropriated by the Romans, a measurement of 1,000 paces was most likely a concept going much much further back in history.
Today, many think of pace in terms of speed, but it also refers to your stride or the distance you travel in two steps. Many aim for 10,000 steps a day which is usually 4-5 miles, a pace length of 4.2 feet to 5.28 feet. 1,000 paces in a 5,280 foot mile results in a pace length of 5.28 feet.
1 pace = 5.28 feet just as 1 mile = 5,280 feet. At Stonehenge, a unit of measure equal to 1 pace or 5.28 feet is everywhere. Converting the dimensions from feet to pace often results in a simple whole number, implying, these are the dimensions it was built to! Here are some examples:
- Circumference of Mean Sarsen Circle = 316.8ft = 60 paces
- Diameter of outer Face of Sarsen Circle = 105.6′ = 20 paces
- Diameter of Bluestone Circle = 79.2′ = 15 paces
- Circumference of Outer Face of Inner Bank = 1056′ = 200 paces
- Average length of each Lintel = 10.56′ = 2 paces
- Height to top of lintels from ground = 15.84′ = 3 paces
- Long side of Station Stone Rectangle = 264′ = 50 paces
- Perimeter of square around bluestone horseshoe = 158.4′ = 30 paces
- Area of Square around outer face of Sarsen Circle = 11,1512.36sqft = 400 paces squared
- Largest Trilithon Height = 26.5′ = 5 paces
- Width of Trilithon Lintels = 16′ = 3 paces
- Spacing between Aubrey Circle pits = 16′ = 3 paces
A ‘pace’ of 5.28 feet also results in whole number measurements for many of the other archeological sites around Stonehenge, too many to name here. Recently, three chalk drums were unearthed that are believed to have been used as a standard of measurement. Interesting, the common measurement between them is estimated to be about ten and a half feet. It is most likely 10.56 feet or 2 paces.
Stonehenge is unlocked with the number 528 or you could say it unlocks the importance of 528. The Architect of Stonehenge is recording the importance of a 5,280 foot mile and a 5.28 foot pace with a 528,000th scale model of the earth and moon! You will not see these connections with any other number systems.
The numbers of 144, 108, 216, 432, 528, 792 and 864 are significant to the measurements of the heavenly bodies and Earth, the tracking of time and space as well as within the stone structures of Stonehenge and the Pyramid of Giza. The connections are overwhelming and should make you ask, why and how?! Below is a video that goes through more details on the recurrence of these numbers and it is well worth watching.
The human body has been used as a reference for measurement for millennia. The standard measurement system we use today can still be connected to our bodies. The foot is obviously where the 12 inch foot measurement came from, a yard of 3 feet is the distance from your nose to your finger tips and as we have just seen a pace is two steps. For those of us with feet smaller than 12 inches, we should take two large steps! But two less familiar measurements that are connected to the body are the 18 inch cubit and the 24 inch ‘cubit and a hand breath’ spoken of in Ezekiel. Watch the ‘Proof of the Creator’ video below to see the specifics on the cubit measurement.
Before getting back to Stonehenge, we need to understand more about cubits. A cubit measurement, as shown in the video above is 18 inches, measured from the elbow to fingertips. A 24 inch cubit made up of a ‘cubit and a handbreadth’ is the 18 inch cubit plus 6 inches for the breadth of your hand.
Two Arks, Two Celestial Bodies
“And there shall be signs (indications) in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars…”Luke 21:25
The video above reveals the connection between the two Arks spoken of in the Bible with the Sun and the Moon! A 24 inch cubit is the key! To recap, the dimensions of the Ark of Noah are 300 cubits x 50 cubits. Converting these dimensions to a 24 inch cubit gives a length of 7200 inchs and width of 1200 inches. The area of the Ark of Noah is length times width or 7200inchs x 1200inches equaling 8,640,000 square inches. The sun is 864,000 miles in diameter.
The Ark of Noah has an Area of 8,640,000 square inches
The sun has a diameter of 864,000 miles
This could seam like a coincidence, until you see that a similar connection can be made with the Ark of the Covenant and the Moon!
The Ark of the Covenant was 2.5 cubits long and 1.5 cubits wide. Again, applying a 24 inch cubit, the length of the ark is now 60 inches and the width is 36 inches. To find the area of the Ark of the Covenant we again multiply the length by the width, 60 inches x 36 inches. The result is an area of 2,160 square inches. The diameter of the moon is 2,160 miles!
The Ark of the Covenant has an area of 2,160 square inches
The Moon has a diameter of 2,160 miles
Did Noah and Moses know the dimensions of these Arks contained numbers in inches that are comparable to dimensions of the Sun and Moon in miles? Most likely not, but they did know they were to make the Ark’s to the exact dimensions provided by their Architect, God.
The Apostles knew the Arks as well as the Tabernacle in the Wilderness and the Temple of Solomon were built to very specific dimensions. This was because the Law, the Tabernacle in the Wilderness, Solomon’s Temple and the two Ark’s were a shadow.
“Who serve to the example and shadow of heavenly things, as Moses was admonished of God when he was about to make the Tabernacle: for, See, said He, that you make all things according to the pattern shown to you in the Mount.”Hebrews 8:5
Stonehenge and New Jerusalem
The 24 inch cubit has a direct connection to Stonehenge. In the Book of Revelation there is a city, New Jerusalem, described as having a 144 cubit wall.
“And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of the man, that is, of the angel.”Revelation 21:17
One way to look at the verse above is through an understanding of what are the measurements of men, such as the ones we have just looked at.
Applying the 24 inch cubit to the wall of holy Jerusalem gives a wall of 288 feet. 288 feet is the diameter of the the Aubrey circle of Stonehenge.
The city described in Revelation 21 is 12,000 furlongs wide, deep and high.
“And the city lies 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.”Revelation 21:16
12,000 furlongs x 660 feet /furlong = 7,920,000 feet. Remember the diameter of the Earth is 7,920 miles, and the diameter of the Bluestone Circle in Stonehenge is 79.2ft. Stonehenge is a model of the earth and also a model of the City of New Jerusalem in the Book of Revelation. The City in Revelation has a 288 foot Wall, just as the Aubrey Circle around the Bluestone circle is 288 feet in diameter.
A wall usually surrounds a city making it larger than the city. But when converting the wall of Jerusalem to feet, it is smaller than the dimensions given for the size of the city. And yet, here we have at Stonehenge a model of the city and wall with dimensions that match the descriptions in the book of Revelation. Let’s look at this wall a little closer.
“And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high Mountain, and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of Heaven from God, Having the glory of God… And 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 the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of the man, that is, of the angel.Revelation 21:10-17
The wall has 12 gates which represent people, the twelve tribes of Israel. The wall has 12 foundations which represent people, the 12 Apostles. Now it’s no far stretch to conclude that the 144 cubit wall also represents people! The wall represents those who understand God!
“And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the Mount Sion/Zion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s Name written in their foreheads.”Revelation 14:1
Witness of the Creation and Creator
Stonehenge is a witness or record of all that has been created; the Sun, Moon, Earth and Man. It is a witness that there is a Creator.
“And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also. And God set them in the Firmament of the Heaven to give Light upon the earth…”Genesis 1:16-17
We’ve seen connections to the Sun and Moon clearly, but the Stars are also shining through.
“And they that are wise shall shine as the brightness of the Firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.”Daniel 12:3
The numbers contained within theses stone structures represent the Heavenly Bodies and are made up of dimensions designed into mankind like the foot, the cubit, the yard and the pace. The numbers are proof of the Creator. They are one way God is saying “I am that I am” or “I exist!” He is the Creator of all that you see and He is your Creator.
The Creators Scale
Stonehenge and the Pyramid of Giza are three-dimensional objects that should be compared to the scale recorded on an architect’s blueprints. The architect directs the drafters what to draw and how big to make it. The scale pulls it all together. There can be thousands of drawings for one building and those who construct it don’t necessarily have the complete picture while the architect who designed it does. God is the Architect. Stonehenge is the scale, you could even call it a decoder ring. Stonehenge is a scale record of the dimensions of God’s Creations. So far, these have been indications pointing to physical creations, but there is even more to this picture as you started to see with the connections to New Jerusalem. Consider what Jesus said:
“If I have told you earthly things, and you do not understand, how shall you understand, if I tell you of heavenly things?”John 3:12
In the same vain, Abraham took notice of the Sun, Moon and stars. He observed that those around him were worshiping the Sun, Moon, Planets and Stars as gods. He looked to the Sun, Moon and Stars and observed their movements, that they rose and set each day and concluded:
“Abram said to himself, surely these are not gods that made the earth and all mankind, but these are the servants of God; and Abram remained in the house of Noah and there knew the Lord and His ways, and he served the Lord all the days of his life, and all that generation forgot the Lord, and served other gods of wood and stone, and rebelled all their days.”Jasher 9:19
Abraham observed that people were worshiping the creation, not the Creator (Romans 1:25). To this day, people are still rebelling, following religions based on the worship of the sun and not recognizing their very own Creator, the Architect of all that is.
God is the Architect of the Heavens, Earth, Stonehenge, the Pyramid of Giza and People. But His Creation all points to these Heavenly shadows. That is what Stonehenge and the Pyramid all point to, the spiritual manifestation of the City of God, a holy Jerusalem. Jerusalem is not Stonehenge, nor is it in the Middle East, but it is made up of the people who are shadowed in the Sun, Moon and Stars! Heaven is a place on Earth, but one that does not manifest until a set time, and that time is now. You are learning about it just in the ‘nic’ of time!
“After this manner pray, ‘Our Father which is in Heaven, Holy is Your Name.Matthew 6:9-13
Your Kingdom Come,
Your Will be done
On Earth, as we see it in Heaven…
For Yours is the Kingdom, and the Power and the Glory, Forever!”
