Iron Rod 153 - D&C 94-97

In these sections, the Lord reveals the purpose of the house of the Lord: to prepare the Elders to preach the gospel for the last time. The Lord also commands two identical buildings to be built adjacent to the house of the Lord: one for the presidency and one for the printing establishment. Joseph then told the church in Zion they needed to build the same three buildings in Independence.

    When reading the sections this week related to building houses unto the Lord, I can’t help but think of various meanings of the word house. Without the spiritual change of heart that accompanies true conversion, the building of a physical structure would be meaningless. D&C 29:34-35 tells us;
    “[A]ll things unto me are spiritual, and not at any time have I given unto you a law which was temporal; neither any man, nor the children of men; neither Adam, your father, whom I created. Behold, I gave unto him that he should be an agent unto himself; and I gave unto him commandment, but no temporal commandment gave I unto him, for my commandments are spiritual; they are not natural nor temporal, neither carnal nor sensual.”

    We are familiar with alternate definitions such as “house of Israel” or “both houses of Congress”. When I read the sections about building houses with the perspective of a group of people who are worthy of God’s spirit dwelling in and among them, I can more easily apply the message to our condition today. (Yes, I understand there are actual dimensions described, but when has multiple layers of meaning been discounted in scripture?)
