Whoso Remembereth

Immediately after conducting the Nephite crowd through the Worship of the Shalems, in which the shalems ascend into the Holy of Holies, Christ identifies the ordinance for them as what he taught before he "ascended," and assures them that remembering the "sayings" of the ordinance and "doing" them will result in Christ "rais[ing]" them up.

This idea of ascension is at the heart of the teachings of the visionary men.  They ascended in the temple, in vision, teaching and practice, doing the things they had seen the Lord do, so that they could similarly ascend to heavenly mansions after their mortal lives.
