  1. In the outer court or telestial kingdom there is glory comparable to the stars. Here we find the altar of sacrifice and the lavar. The outer court was open to the heavens. Those of the telestial kingdom will be required to learn the first law of heaven – obedience, for every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is lord. Both the brazan altar and the lavar of the outer court were made of bronze which is inferior to gold. The altar of incense and table of showbread of the holy place were both made of wood overlaid with gold and the menorah of solid gold. Within the holy of holies the cherubim facing each other across the mercy seat were of pure gold. The value of the materials used in workmanship increase as we go up each degree of glory. Within the telestrial kingdom are shown two major groups, those who are baptized and those who are not. From here arose like incense the savour of sacrifice unto the lord. This represents those who accept the sacrifice made by Christ on their behalf without accepting baptism itself. These are they who are ministered to by others. Within the bronze lavar was living water, the water of baptism. Herein the heavens were reflected. Washing here was necessary before entering the holy place. These are they who accept the need for sacrifice and the baptism of the lord. They minister to the unbaptized of the telestial kingdom.
  2. Just a couple thoughts about what is mentioned concerning the LDS of the terrestial and telestial kingdoms in D&C 76. Terrestial v. 79 These are they who are not valiant in the testimony of Jesus; wherefore, they obtain not the crown over the kingdom of our God. Apparently these are not valiant [showing courage or determination] in church service and so the question becomes, what is valiance – serving until one’s caling and election is made sure? Telestial v. 101 But received not the gospel, neither the testimony of Jesus, neither the prophets, neither the everlasting covenant. Marrying outside the covenant or not marrying [in the covenant even] when opportunity is present is enough to also keep one out of the Terrestial kingdom. If commission of sexual transgression [fornication and adultery] are like unto murder in seriousness, not being married in the everlasting covenant seems to be the sin of omission side of the coin. Any thoughts?
