“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.”

Past, Present, Future

“Most every LDS temple utilizes 3 in some form, normally in their 3-part progression through both sacred space (3 ascending rooms) and through sacred time (past, present and future). And last, when temples are dedicated Saints repeat the sacred Hosana Shout 3 times, sealing the ordinance, as first seen in the modern era at the Kirtland Temple.”
Val Brinkerhoff, “The Day Star: Reading Sacred Architecture” (Book 2), 67


A presidency in the Church consists of a president and two counselors. This may be a pattern of the divine presidency or the Godhead which consists of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


“…3 and 4 and 6 and 8 and 12 are considered structural numbers, the numbers nature builds with.”

Carl Jung, “Dogma of the Trinity,” Psychology and Religion, CW 11, 180


“This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.”
