ADAMS AND EVES ON OTHER WORLDS
An Explanation of the Mormon Beliefs Regarding Exalation and Eternal Marriage



Eternal Marriage: Adams and Eves on other Worlds

If you would like to know why people become Mormons, the answer is that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the ONLY Church on earth which claims to have the "sealing power" of Jesus Christ; to bind on earth what shall be bound in Heaven:

"Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." (Matthew 18:18)
What does this refer to? Latter~day Saints believe it refers to Marriage in Heaven. We believe that Jesus gave Peter the sealing power which allowed him to "bind" men and women together on earth who would be "bound" (married) in Heaven, and to "loose" those same marriages if there was divorce.

Mormons believe that Elijah, as an Angel of the LORD, appeared to Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery in 1836, and gave them the "sealing power". With this sealing power, faithful Mormons will--if they are sealed in the Temple--become literal Adams and Eves on other worlds in the Cosmos. All other Christians will become Ministering Angels; like eternal "Monks" or "Nuns".

Eternal Marriage is only for the Elect! Those who are not the Elect (whom Jesus called "The Children of This World") shall become like the angels in Heaven; who marry not nor are given in marriage. Jesus referred to His elect disciples as "The Children of Light" and said: "Ye are NOT of the World" (John 15:19 ).

Those who deny the possibility of Eternal Marriage quote Jesus' response (Matthew 22:30) to the question the Sadducees put to him; that a Sadducee woman had 8 husbands, so whose wife would she be in the Resurrection? The Sadducees did not believe in the Resurrection. They were trying to catch Jesus in a snare. They knew He was teaching Eternal Marriage, so they told of a woman who had 8 husbands, whose wife would she be in the Resurrection? Jesus replied that "the Children of this world" are not married in Heaven, but are as the angels in Heaven. This is true! Mormons also believe that "The Children of This World" shall not be married in the Resurrection, but shall be like the angels in Heaven; eternal monks and nuns. But the "Children of Light" (Jesus' Elect) shall receive a better reward!

The Sadducees were not asking Jesus the fate of HIS disciples in the Resurrection, but the fate of a Sadducee woman and her eight Sadducee husbands! In LDS doctrine, they will become like the angels in heaven (this is what Jesus said), but in Catholic and Protestant doctrine the woman and her seven husbands will burn in Hell-fire for all eternity because they were not Christians.

Only the "Mormon" interpretation can be true! Otherwise, Jesus lied to the Sadducees (by telling them the woman and her seven husbands would go to Heaven and be angels there).

What does the "binding and loosening" in Matthew 16:19 and 18:18 refer to?

a. Demons bound or loosed in Heaven or on earth?
b. Christians being saved or unsaved in heaven or on earth?
c. Angels being chained or unchained in heaven or on earth?
d. Saints (Elect Christians) bound or loosed in heaven or on earth?

What does "bound" and "loosed" mean? In the Greek it says DEO (bound) and LUO (loosed). It must refer to Christians being "bound" or "loosed". Paul wrote, "For the woman that hath a husband is bound [DEO] by Law to the husband." (Romans 7:2). He wrote, "Art thou bound [DEO] to a wife? seek not to be loosed [LUO]. Art thou loosed [LUO] from a wife? seek not a wife." (1 Corinthians 7:27)

Jesus tells Peter:

"And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind [DEO] on earth shall be bound [DEO] in heaven and whatsoever thou shalt loose [LUO] on earth shall be loosed [LUO] in heaven. (Matthew 16:19)
What does DEO and LUO refer to?

Does it refer to demons being bound and loosed on earth and in heaven? Does it refer to angels being bound or loosed on earth or in heaven? Does it refer to the Pope saving or damning those on earth who shall be saved or damned IN HEAVEN? What does the "binding" and "loosening" refer to?

Jesus' words in Matthew 16:19 and Matthew 18:18 refers to marriage in Heaven. It cannot refer to anything else. It cannot refer to "loosening" demons on earth or in heaven, or "binding" angels on earth or in heaven! It refers to marriage, and nothing else.

This "sealing power" was given to Peter by Jesus, and Peter (as an Angel) gave this sealing power to Joseph Smith.


Peter, James, and John, as angels, confirm the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven upon Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery in 1829 near Harmony, Penn.

The Restoration of All Things in the Last Days includes the restoring of the sealing power of Jesus, that He gave to Peter, who in turns restores this power to the Prophet Joseph Smith in 1829. Currently, the President of the LDS Church has this power, and he ordains deputies (called "Sealers") who perform eternal marriage ceremonies in Sealing Rooms in Mormon Temples throughout the world. If a couple remains faithful and worthy "to the end" then they shall not be angels in Heaven, but become Adams and Eves on other worlds. They shall eventually--over eons--receive the title of "gods". They shall rule over many worlds just as God rules over them and over all universes. The heirs of Exaltation shall never be equal to God! They shall rule over worlds, and God will rule over them.


A typical Sealing Room in a Mormon Temple

The purpose of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is to gather all the Elect Christians from among the other Churches, and indeed all the Elect souls from all other religions, into the Church so that they can enjoy the blessings of the Sealing Power of the Temple, and be united as husband and wives--and as eternal families--for all eternity.


Faithful Mormons become literal Adams and Eves on New Worlds

Anciently, the Levites were the Priesthood of the LORD. His priests. The "Elect" of the LORD. They were called Qadoshiym; which in Hebrew means "separated out for a special purpose". It means "elect" or "chosen" or "special" or even "elite". In Latin, the word for Qadoshiym is "Santos", or, in English: "Saints". Mormons are the Saints of the Latter-days, or Latter~day Saints. We are the Priesthood of God in the Latter-days.

Those who do not hearken unto the Voice of the LORD in the latter-days, and who do not receive the Higher Ordinances of the Temple (endowments and sealings), and who do not "endure to the end" in faithfulness, will become as the angels of Heaven; single and alone for all eternity (like eternal "monks" and "nuns").

Brigham Young said that "Adam and Eve were the names of the first man and woman on every earth that is ever organized." (Joseph Lee Robinson Journal, 6-8 Oct., 1854, LDS Archives). He said:

"After men have got their exaltations and their crowns--have become Gods, even the sons of GOD--are made King of kings and Lord of lords, they have the power then of propagating their species in spirit; and that is the first of their operations with regard to organizing a world. Power is then given to them to organize the elements, and then commence the organization of tabernacles [bodies]. How can they do it? Have they to go to that earth? Yes, and Adam will have to go there, and he cannot do without an Eve; he must have an Eve to commence the work of generation, and they will go into the Garden, and continue to eat and drink of the fruits of the corporeal world, until this grosser matter is diffused sufficiently through their celestial bodies to enable them, according to established laws, to produce mortal tabernacles for their spiritual children." (Journal of Discourses 6:275)
Brigham Young once looked out upon the many sisters (Mormon women) at a Church General Conference in the Mormon Tabernacle in Salt Lake City, and said:
"Before me I see a house full of Eves. What a crowd of reflections the word 'Eve' is calculated to bring up! Eve was a name or title conferred upon our first mother, because she was actually to be the mother of all the human beings who should live upon this earth. I am looking upon a congregation designed to be just such beings." (Millennial Star 31:267)
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is NOT just another Christian church. Rather, it is the One True Church of the Elect of God. Accepting Jesus as your "Lord" can save you, but only His Priesthood can exalt you and your family. And that Priesthood exists only in the Mormon Faith. The purpose of the Mormon Faith is to gather His Elect from the four corners of the earth so they can be sealed in the Temple to their spouses and children into Eternal Families. The missionaries will explain this further to you.

We recognize that many people of Hamitic descent (and others) won't accept the Mormon Faith, and will continue to view the Mormon Faith as "racist". That's ok! The Mormon Faith is not for you! The Mormon Faith is not for everyone. It is not for the proud. It is not for haters. It is not for the resentful. It is for the Elect of God. It is not for the prideful, but for the humble, the sincere Seeker of Truth, the true lowly Servant of God, the Chosen, the Elect, the Pure-in-Heart.

At the top of most LDS Temples is the statue of an angel blowing a trumpet. This is a symbol of the gathering together of the Elect of God from the four corners of the earth.

Jesus said:
"And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to another." (Matthew 24:31)

It is ONLY in Mormon Temples that husbands can be sealed to wives and children to parents for time and all eternity. We invite you to discover more. Contact the missionaries today! You have nothing to lose, and only Eternal Life to gain!
