The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints builds temples all around the world where faithful members go to learn more of Jesus Christ and his plan, receive ordinances for themselves, and perform vicarious work for their deceased ancestors. These temples are beautifully constructed both inside and out. They are designed to direct our thoughts heavenward and seal families together for eternity. The redemptive work that is performed here is not to be found anywhere else on the earth. All people are invited to experience for themselves the grandeur and blessings of temple work by qualifying themselves to enter the House of the Lord. In the meantime, I'll be taking you through the A to Z of our temples.
ATLANTA GEORGIA TEMPLE
|The Celestial Room in the Atlanta Georgia Temple. This is typically a place of peace and reflection after receiving instruction and entering into covenants, culminating into entry into the Celestial Room|
Each temple has a Celestial Room. While no ceremonies are actually performed in the Celestial Room, it acts as the final stage of progression in an instructional ceremony called the Endowment. After being taught of God's plan and symbolically passing through the veil, patrons arrive in the Celestial Room. It is a representation of the Celestial Kingdom, the highest degree of glory in heaven, a place where God and Jesus dwell. This room helps us visualise ourselves in such a place. It is a place of peaceful contemplation and meditation, a place to pray and receive inspiration and revelation for issues or struggles we may be facing in life. A person may stay as long as they wish in the Celestial Room at the end of their Endowment Session.
