“For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble and to revive the hear of the contrite ones.”

Isaiah 57:6

“As thou has given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him.  And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”

John 17:2-3

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, except ye abide my law ye cannot attain to this glory.  For strait is the gate, and narrow the way that leadeth unto the exaltation and continuation of the lives, and few there be that find it, because ye receive me not in the world neither do ye know me…  This is eternal lives – to know the only wise and true God, and Jesus Christ, whom he hath sent.  I am he.  Receive ye, therefore, my law.”

Doctrine and Covenants 132:21, 22, 24


The Most Holy Place

The Most Holy Place was the most sacred spot on earth.  Only the high priest was permitted to enter into this room, and he could on enter on a single day each year.  Leviticus chapter 16 details the procedures the high priest had to go through in order to enter.
