Notes for my writing

This blog is made up of notes on the gospel as found in the only true and living church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This includes notes that are either excerpts from or ideas for books I either have in draft or may yet write.

The blessings weren't just opened to blacks and to gentiles then living. Through the temple it was opened to all who had ever lived

The revelation on priesthood meant more than we realize, as did the revelation to Peter that the Gentiles could be baptized into the true church.

The revelation that the priesthood could go to blacks didn't just give the priesthood to those then living. It opened it to them over the whole course of the earth's history through temple work.

It was just like the door to missionary work being opened up by Christ in the spirit world.

When Peter received a revelation about the gentiles, it didn't just open the doors to gentiles here
on earth. It was God opening the door to the gentiles of all ages, as all who ever lived could then receive the gospel through baptism whether here or in the spirit world. That is because even those in the spirit world could now receive the ordinance of baptism, and could now get the gift of the Holy Ghost through temple work done by their righteous descendants.
