Come to the Temple

Our Father’s house is a house of order. We go to His house to enter into that order of priesthood that will entitle us to all that the Father hath, if we are faithful. For, as the Lord has revealed in modern times, Abraham’s seed are “lawful heirs” to the priesthood. (See D&C 86:8–11; D&C 84:33–34.)

When you attend the temple and perform the ordinances that pertain to the house of the Lord, certain blessings will come to you:

  • You will receive the spirit of Elijah, which will turn your heart to your spouse, to your children, and to your forebears.

  • You will love your family with a deeper love than you have loved before.

  • Your heart will be turned to your fathers, and theirs to you.

  • You will be endowed with power from on high as the Lord has promised.

  • You will receive the key of the knowledge of God. You will learn how you can be like Him. Even the power of godliness will be manifest to you. (See D&C 84:19–20.)

  • You will be doing a great service to those who have passed to the other side of the veil. Your work will enable them to be “judged according to men in the flesh, but live according to God in the spirit” (D&C 138:34).

Such are the blessings of the temple and the blessings of frequently attending the temple.

God bless us to teach our children and our grandchildren what great blessings temple attendance brings. God bless us to receive all the blessings that await us by going to the temple. God bless us to receive all the blessings revealed by Elijah the prophet so that our callings and elections will be made sure.

I testify with all my soul to the truth of this message and pray that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will bless modern Israel with the compelling desire to seek all the blessings of the fathers in the house of our Heavenly Father.
