Premise: Jesus Christ is preparing a place for His faithful Saints. He will establish a holy city known as Zion, the New Jerusalem. We are to prepare and sanctify ourselves to gather upon the Land of Zion. To help us become a Zion people, Jesus Christ is providing ordinances and covenants in His holy temples. As we honestly and sincerely keep those covenants a sublime miracle is taking place-in us-in others-and in the buildup to the New Jerusalem. This book will inspire you to be part of the miracle!
"Out of Zion," will be "the perfection of beauty, God [will shine]. Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence. . .. He shall call to the heavens from above, and to the earth. . . Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice." -Psalms 50:2-5
"Zion must increase in beauty and holiness. . . and put on her beautiful garments." The stakes of Zion "must be strengthened." How are we individually and collectively to be strengthened? "To put on [Zion's] strength is to put on the authority of the priesthood." -D&C 82:14; 113:8
"Surely Zion is the city of Our God, and surely Zion cannot fall, neither be moved out of her place, for God is there, and the hand of the Lord is there." -D&C 97:19
"Zion cannot be built unless it is by the principles of the law of the celestial kingdom, otherwise I cannot receive her unto myself." -D&C 105:5
