“Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, Ye shall be holy: for I the LORD your God am holy.”

Lev. 19:2

“Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.”

Galatians 3:24

“…This is the whole meaning of the law, every whit pointing to that great and last sacrifice; and that great and last sacrifice will be the Son of God, yea, infinite and eternal.”

Alma 34:14


Welcome to TheHolyHouse.org!

This website has been created to demonstrate that the Tabernacle from the Old Testament is a representation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  It is my desire that everyone who reads contents of this website will be spiritually nourished, that their faith will increase, that they will gain increased confidence to meet life’s challenges, that they will be motivated to forsake sin and come unto Jesus Christ, to call on His name, obey His commandments, and to abide in His love.  This is exactly what has happened to me as I have studied this sacred structure in relation to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thanks to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, every individual that has ever lived upon this Earth will be resurrected after their physical death.  Meaning their spirit will be reunited with an immortal physical body and will never again suffer physical death.  Thanks to Jesus Christ, and His blood shed in Gethsemane and upon the Cross, every individual that has ever lived upon this Earth will be brought to stand in their resurrected body, in front of the Almighty God to be judged according to their works.  Only those who have made covenants with God and offered sacrifice in similitude of the Lamb of God, will be cleansed by his atoning blood and be found worthy to stand.  The grace of God makes all of this possible.  Blessed be the name of the Almighty God which has provided His children the means to escape from death and from hell!

The tabernacle is a visual representation of the means God has provided to His children in order for them to return back to His Holy Presence.  The tabernacle is a witness of the divinity and mission of the Lord Jesus Christ, and how through Him, we might all partake in immortality and eternal life.  I testify that true happiness in this life, and in eternity, is found in following the example of the Son of the Living God.

This structure was revealed by the Lord in intricate detail for the express purpose of teaching all people of the Earth, how they can prepare themselves before returning to the presence of the Father to be judged.  One of the many ways the Lord teaches His children is through symbolism. This structure can be seen and understood by people of all languages and cultures and by all who choose to enter through its gate. This website is dedicated to the study of the path that leads back to the presence of the Father, as embodied in the Tabernacle, or the House of the Lord.
