The Plan Built Into The Universe (Sacred Sites Part 10)

On the far left of the above illustration we can see the universe as it is divided up into Telestial space, Terrestrial space and Celestial space. The Universe is the Tabernacle of the Lord through which the earth (The Lord's Temple) traverses as she makes her way to becoming a Celestial Kingdom. We see this explained in the following scripture:

D&C 101:23
23 And prepare for the revelation which is to come, when the veil of the covering of my temple, in my tabernacle, which hideth the earth, shall be taken off, and all flesh shall see me together.

Here the Lord declares that his temple, the earth, is covered by a veil which shall be lifted. The next several verses 24-35 describe the Terrestrial order that is created by lifting the veil which moves mother earth into Terrestrial space of his tabernacle.

At the end of the Millennium, mother earth dies and is then resurrected as a Celestial Kingdom as explained in the following verses:

D&C 88:25-26
25 And again, verily I say unto you, the earth abideth the law of a celestial kingdom, for it filleth the measure of its creation, and transgresseth not the law--
26 Wherefore, it shall be sanctified; yea, notwithstanding it shall die, it shall be quickened again, and shall abide the power by which it is quickened, and the righteous shall inherit it.

Our previous blogs have shown how the Tabernacle is a model of this process of both man the the earth progressing through the atonement of Christ to becoming Celestial beings.

Using the illustration at the top of this posting it will be shown how Mount Sinai, and Exodus are also models of this same plan in the next postings.
