Brand new softcover pamphlet! ; In this spectacular recitation of the dedication of the Kirtland Temple, the 'Prophetess' of the early Church, Eliza R. Snow, relates her insightful recollections of this historic event.
After offering some facts available to all (IE "It was commenced in June, 1833, under the immediate direction of the Almighty, through his servant, Joseph Smith,...." ) , she talks about the pulpits on either end of the building. "Four pulpits stood, one above another, in the centre of the building, from morth to south, both on the east and west ends; those on the west for the presiding officers of the Melchisidec priesthood, and those on the east for the Aaronic; and each of these pulpits was separated by curtains of white painted canvas, which were let down and drawn up a pleasure. In front of each of these two rows of pulpits, was a sacrament table , for the administration of that sacred ordinance."
She then goes on to recount, word for word, the dedicatory prayer offered by the Prophet Joseph Smith. Some of the items he address in this prayer include:
stating that Jesus Chrust is the 'son of thy bosom,' speaking to the Father.
Addressing that the 'fullness' of the Holy Ghost could only be obtained in the Temple.
Mentioned that the salutations were made "with holy hands, uplifted to the Most High"
Sis. Snow than paints a verbal picture of the hosanna shout. Says she, "One striking feature of the ceremonies, was the grand shout of hosanna, which was given by the whole assembly, in standing position, with uplifted hands. The form of the shout is as follows: 'Hosanna - hosanna - hosanna - to God and the Lamb - amen - amen, and amen.' The foregoing was deliberately and emphatically pronounced, and three times repeated, and with such power as seemed almost sufficient to raise the roof from the building."
This is an absolutely superb discourse which is offered as a first-hand account of the dedicatory prayer of the Kirtland Temple. ; The FIG Project Series; 5.5" x 8.5"; 20 pages
