    Beautiful and historic. Hopefully, I can plan a trip in the near future to see it.

    The revelation from God is before you.
    It needs 3 witnesses- Pres. Monson, Pres. Eyring & Pres. Uchtdorf.
    Ask them- 'are these words from God?'

    I was called of God to deliver this message and testimony:

    Thus saith the Lord;
    to prepare you for my coming,
    I reveal one of my mysteries.
    Satan is my creation so you can have life.
    Instinct program is Satan.
    Share this with the world now. I come soon.

    given through his Holy Spirit who called me as a witness.
    by Elder Jonathan L. Peterson
    servant of God

    ---
    To prepare for the Lord Jesus Christ. Satan is revealed & will be bound for the righteous sake.

    God offers the righteous power over Satan -
    Satan = Instinct Mechanism, (Artificial Intelligence Program-Entities)
    trillions of copies operating autonomous life on earth.

    750K lawyers- including LDS attorneys some even apostles-
    & not one wrote the obvious proof to end Corp. Shareholder Bribery.
    Because Satan has power to protect current status quo operations = taking choice away.

    Every lawyer knows Corp. Shareholder money must be justified spending =
    proof of intent to commit bribery. We could prosecute them any day we choose.
    Test my logic - ask an attorney-
    like Pres. Eyring knows the answer.

    I just went to the open house yesterday and it's beautiful! I was especially in love with the stain glass everywhere and the beautiful stain glass artwork depicting our Savior. I felt such peace and the spirit while there. I live in Pleasant Grove very close to the Mount Timp temple, but I look forward to going to the Provo City Center Temple after it is dedicated.

    I love the symbolism of this temple. Not only are there symbols throughout the structure itself, but it is also a symbol of the "cleansing by fire" that all can receive after becoming members of the Lord's church. The fire that "destroyed" the tabernacle was the beginning of an amazing change to the celestial structure it is today.

    What a beautiful edifice! While it was burning, Provo City was losing an irreplaceable treasure right before our eyes. Then, after all the fire-fighters and initial excitement left, the building just stood there like a dying princess with all her radiance devastated. It was heart-breaking and I think most of us were waiting for an announcement about her replacement. I was even wondering what they were going to do with all that beautiful brick which seemed to be at the mercy of a strong breeze before crashing down. Then our dear prophet announced that inspired plan. Not only did the Church plan to rebuild; to breathe new life into our "princess", but they would rebuild it as a House of the Lord; a holy temple. No matter the cost, no matter what it took, it was worth it, if for nothing else then to replace spirit, the heart of Provo.

    It's kind of unsightly in my opinion due to the spires trying to be too big for the building. It's as if they took the spires off a building 4 times the size, and plopped them down on the corners. It just doesn't work for me. At least it's not like the Sagrada Familia spires. Those things are horrifying.

    @corvetteRouge West Lake is probably referring to Nathaniel Westlake whose stained glass work was well known during the gothic era. This would make sense as there is a lot of stained glass work through out this temple. So Westlake referring to architectural elements and not furniture.

    "West Lake designs?" Don't you mean Eastlake style named for the Victorian furniture designer Charles L. Eastlake (1833-1906)?

    How much did it cost to renovate? That is an amazing engineering feat they pulled off. Had to cost some major coin.

    It looks absolutely beautiful! Just perfect for the House of the Lord. Many thanks go to all the talented and skilled individuals who were able to create such beauty for all of us to enjoy.
