Families are Eternal!

Families are eternal!
.
To close up a great week, it’s my honor, my blessing, and as the patriarch of my family, I give thanks to an eternal family. How grateful I am to know of the Plan of Salvation.
.
Did you know there is life after death? It’s our Eternal Father in Heaven’s plan of happiness. It’s the message we share with the world as members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—Families are eternal!
.
You may have lost a loved one and thought that was the end. I’m here to tell you; it’s not. You’re going to see them again.
.
When we marry, we go to temples and with the authority of the priesthood, we are sealed.
.
What makes it different than any other marriage? Well, we don’t say, ”till death do us part.” No, with this authority, we are sealed for time and all eternity.
.
How did this authority come to?
.
“Elijah came to restore to the earth, by conferring on mortal prophets duly commissioned of the Lord, the fulness of the power of Priesthood.
.
This Priesthood holds the keys of binding and sealing on earth and in heaven of all the ordinances and principles pertaining to the salvation of man, that they may thus become valid in the celestial kingdom of God.
.
It is by virtue of this authority that ordinances are performed in the temples for both the living and the dead. It is the power which unites for eternity husbands and wives when they enter into marriage according to the eternal plan.
.
It is the authority by which parents obtain the claim of parenthood concerning their children through all eternity and not only for time, which makes eternal the family in the Kingdom of God.” Doc of Sal, 2:117.
.
From the proclamation we read, “In the premortal realm, spirit sons and daughters knew and worshiped God as their Eternal Father and accepted His plan by which His children could obtain a physical body and gain earthly experience to progress toward perfection and ultimately realize his or her divine destiny as an heir of eternal life.”
.
Marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children.”
.
Hear Him!
