Moses’ tabernacle;:

Moses’ tabernacle; 1 AND the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, On the first day of the first month shalt thou set up the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation . (Old Testament | Exodus 40:1 - 2) 34 ¶ Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle . 35 And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle. 36 And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys: 37 But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up. 38 For the cloud of the LORD was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys. (Old Testament | Exodus 40:34 - 38)

Solomon’s temple;:

Solomon’s temple; 1 THEN Solomon began to build the house of the LORD at Jerusalem in mount Moriah, where the LORD appeared unto David his father, in the place that David had prepared in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite. 2 And he began to build in the second day of the second month, in the fourth year of his reign. (Old Testament | 2 Chronicles 3:1 - 2) 1 THUS all the work that Solomon made for the house of the LORD was finished: and Solomon brought in all the things that David his father had dedicated; and the silver, and the gold, and all the instruments, put he among the treasures of the house of God. (Old Testament | 2 Chronicles 5:1)

Herod’s temple:

Herod’s temple 12 ¶ And Jesus went into the temple of God , and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, 13 And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves. 14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple; and he healed them. 15 And when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying in the temple, and saying, Hosanna to the Son of David; they were sore displeased, (New Testament | Matthew 21:12 - 15)

Nephite temples:

Nephite temples 16 And I, Nephi, did build a temple ; and I did construct it after the manner of the temple of Solomon save it were not built of so many precious things; for they were not to be found upon the land, wherefore, it could not be built like unto Solomon's temple. But the manner of the construction was like unto the temple of Solomon; and the workmanship thereof was exceedingly fine. (Book of Mormon | 2 Nephi 5:16)

Nephite temples:

Nephite temples 18 And now, it came to pass that Mosiah went and did as his father had commanded him, and proclaimed unto all the people who were in the land of Zarahemla that thereby they might gather themselves together, to go up to the temple to hear the words which his father should speak unto them. (Book of Mormon | Mosiah 1:18)

Nephite temples:

Nephite temples 1 AND now it came to pass that there were a great multitude gathered together, of the people of Nephi, round about the temple which was in the land Bountiful; and they were marveling and wondering one with another, and were showing one to another the great and marvelous change which had taken place. (Book of Mormon | 3 Nephi 11:1)

Slide 21:

Elder Bruce R. McConkie said: “The inspired erection and proper use of temples is one of the great evidences of the divinity of the Lord’s work. … Where there are temples, with the spirit of revelation resting upon those who administer therein, there the Lord’s people will be found; where these are not, the Church and kingdom and the truth of heaven are not” ( Mormon Doctrine, 2nd ed. [1966], 781).

(Doctrine and Covenants | Section 109:22 - 23)

D&C 109:

D&C 109 59 We ask thee to appoint unto Zion other stakes besides this one which thou hast appointed, that the gathering of thy people may roll on in great power and majesty, that thy work may be cut short in righteousness. (Doctrine and Covenants | Section 109:59)

Slide 31:

The Lord’s glory will be upon his people. The Lord’s servants will leave the temple with the Lord’s power, name, and glory; and angels will have charge over them. The Lord’s servants will take the truth of the gospel from the temple to the ends of the earth. Stakes will be organized so that the Lord’s people may be gathered.

Slide 32:

All of scattered Israel will learn the truth and rejoice. The families of the Saints and all of their sick and afflicted will be remembered before the Lord. The Lord’s kingdom will fill the whole earth. The Lord’s servants will someday be caught up to meet the Lord and will be with Him forever.

D&C 97 15 And inasmuch as my people build a house unto me in the name of the Lord, and do not suffer any unclean thing to come into it, that it be not defiled, my glory shall rest upon it; 16 Yea, and my presence shall be there, for I will come into it, and all the pure in heart that shall come into it shall see God. 17 But if it be defiled I will not come into it, and my glory shall not be there; for I will not come into unholy temples. 18 And, now, behold, if Zion do these things she shall prosper, and spread herself and become very glorious, very great, and very terrible. 19 And the nations of the earth shall honor her, and shall say: Surely Zion is the city of our God, and surely Zion cannot fall, neither be moved out of her place, for God is there, and the hand of the Lord is there; 20 And he hath sworn by the power of his might to be her salvation and her high tower. 21 Therefore, verily, thus saith the Lord, let Zion rejoice, for this is Zion—THE PURE IN HEART; therefore, let Zion rejoice, while all the wicked shall mourn.

But the Lord said unto Enoch: Zion have I blessed, but the residue of the people have I cursed. 21 And it came to pass that the Lord showed unto Enoch all the inhabitants of the earth; and he beheld, and lo, Zion, in process of time, was taken up into heaven. And the Lord said unto Enoch: Behold mine abode forever. (Pearl of Great Price | Moses 7:18 - 21)
