"YE HAVE NOT CHOSEN ME,
BUT I HAVE CHOSEN YOU, AND ORDAINED YOU ...
"
--- [partial verse from John 15: 16 - Bible]


"15 A ND HOW SHALL THEY PREACH,
EXCEPT THEY BE SENT? ...
"

"16 BUT THEY HAVE NOT ALL
OBEYED THE GOSPEL
.
For Esaias saith, Lord,
WHO HATH BELIEVED OUR REPORT?"
--- [partial verse from Romans 10: 15-16 - Bible]


" FOR I AM ABOUT TO RESTORE
MANY THINGS TO THE EARTH,
PERTAINING TO THE PRIESTHOOD,
SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS
."
--- [D&C 127: 8]


"3 THY PEOPLE shall be willing
in THE DAY OF THY POWER,
in the beauties of holiness
from the womb of the morning:
thou hast THE DEW
of thy youth.

"4 The Lord hath sworn,
and will not repent,
THOU ART A PRIEST FOREVER,
AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK."
--- [Psalm 110: 3-4 --- Bible]


{Although the book of Hebrews (in the New Testament)
repeatedly talks about
The Melchizedek Priesthood,
only Psalm 110: 3-4
(in The Old Testament) declares
The Melchizedek Priesthood
existed back then as well.}


{Let's analysize the verses.

In verse 3,

THE DAY OF THY POWER,
refers to a period of gospel time,
what is referred to in The Church as,
a 'Dispensation.'
It of course refers to Jesus starting
his Church of Jesus Christ
as found in The New Testament;
but it also refers to a greater
DAY OF THY POWER,
than just the beginning period of time.
It refers to our day:
The Dispensation of The Fulness of Times,
in which The Lord restored His Church,
and everything from all Dispensations
is gathered into this one Church,
which is now called,
The Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-Day Saints.}


{Also in verse 3 is}
"THE DEW"
{which is a simile and a metaphor
used in several places in The Old Testament
that refers to The Melchizedek Priesthood,
as verse 4 also bears witness that it does.
The best definition of }

"THE DEW"
{is found in} D&C 121: 45-46
{which describes}
"THE DEW"
{as}
"THE DOCTRINE OF THE PRIESTHOOD".

{Verse 4 confirms which}
"PRIESTHOOD"
{it refers to:
NOT The Catholic Priesthood
but}

AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK."

{or in other words,}
THE MELCHIZEDEK PRIESTHOOD


"16 Who is made, not after
the Law of a carnal commandment,
BUT AFTER THE POWER
OF AN ENDLESS LIFE.


"17 For He testifieth,
THOU ART A PRIEST FOREVER
AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK."
--- [Hebrews 7: 16-17 - Bible]


"For such an
HIGH PRIEST became US,

{Some assert that only Jesus was
the}
HIGH PRIEST.
{But such a teaching is false doctrine.
All of}
US can and should
become a}
HIGH PRIEST }

"who is holy, harmless, undefiled,
separate from sinners,
AND MADE HIGHER THAN THE HEAVENS,"
--- [Hebrews 7: 26 - Bible]


"Wherefore, holy brethren,
PARTAKERS OF THE HEAVENLY CALLING,

{ THE HEAVENLY CALLING,"
is "THE MELCHIZEDEK PRIESTHOOD"
{which Priesthood even Jesus holds,
which is why it is called a}

"HEAVENLY CALLING,"
{because God Himself
who lives in heaven
also holds it.}


{continuing with Hebrews 3: 1}

"consider the Apostle and High Priest
of our profession, Christ Jesus;"
--- [Hebrews 3: 1 --- Bible]


"9 And being made perfect,
He became the author
of ETERNAL SALVATION
UNTO ALL THEM THAT OBEY HIM:"

{ "ETERNAL SALVATION"
{as spoken in this verse, means,
ETERNAL LIFE,
the highest of the salvations,
or another way of labeling it:
the fulness of salvation.
The Fulness of Salvation
only comes to

THEM THAT OBEY HIM:"
{and are}

{continuing}

"10 CALLED OF GOD AN HIGH PRIEST
AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK."
--- [Hebrews 5: 9-10 - Bible]


"And no man taketh
this honour unto himself,
BUT HE THAT IS CALLED OF GOD,
AS WAS AaRON."
--- [Hebrews 5: 4 - Bible]


"SO ALSO CHRIST GLORIFIED NOT HIMSELF
TO BE MADE A HIGH PRIEST:
BUT HE {God The Father}
THAT SAID UNTO HIM, {God The Son}
THOU ART MY SON,
today have I begotten thee."

"AS HE SAITH ALSO IN ANOTHER PLACE,

{Not in this world but before The Saviour
was born (in the Premortal World before the world was),
The Savior was foreordained to be The Saviour
of the world, and as part of His foreordination,
He received The Melchizedek Priesthood
so that He could bring it (The Priesthood) to the world -
for if he didn't have it in the first place,
then how could He have brought it:}


{Adam was the first to
receive the Priesthood,
and who ordained Adam?
Since Adam was the first and only man
on the face of the earth,
it had to be either
God The Father, or
God The Son,
Or perhaps even both of them
at the same time.
The Scriptures are not clear on
who ordained Adam,
and perhaps it does not
even matter for us to know?


{continuing, and reiterating the first clause}

"AS HE SAITH ALSO IN ANOTHER PLACE,
THOU ART A PRIEST FOREVER
AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK."
--- [Hebrews 5: 9-10 - Bible]


"And The Lord
{God The Father} said,
Whom shall I send?
And one answered like
unto the Son of Man:
Here am I, send me.
And another answered and said,
Here am I, send me.
And The Lord {God The Father} said:
I will send the first."
--- [Abraham 3: 27 - Pearl Of Great Price]


{The Lord normally in the scriptures
means The Lord Jesus Christ.
But in this verse, The Lord, means
God The Father: (or)

God The Father said,

Whom shall I send?}


"Also I heard the voice
of the Lord, {God The Father} saying,
Whom shall I send,
and who will go for US?
Then said I,
Here I am; send me."
--- [Isaiah 6: 8 - Bible}


"And now verily
I say unto you,
I WAS IN THE BEGINNING
WITH THE FATHER,
and am THE FIRSTBORN;"

"And all those who
are begotten through me
ARE PARTAKERS OF
THE GLORY OF THE SAME,

and are THE CHURCH
OF THE FIRSTBORN.
"
--- [D&C 93: 21-22]


"FOR WE ARE MADE
PARTAKERS OF CHRIST,
{ THE FIRSTBORN; }
if we hold the beginning
of our confidence
steadfast unto the end;"
--- [Hebrews 3: 14 - Bible]


"Even those things which were
FROM THE BEGINNING
BEFORE THE WORLD WAS,
which were
ORDAINED OF THE FATHER,
through His Only Begotten Son,

who was in the bosom
of the Father,
EVEN FROM THE BEGINNING;"
--- [D&C 76: 13]


"Behold, I am He who was
PREPARED FROM THE FOUNDATION
OF THE WORLD
TO REDEEM MY PEOPLE.

Behold, I am Jesus Christ.
I am The Father and The Son.
In me shall all mankind
have Life, and That Eternally,
even they who shall
believe on my name:
and they shall become
MY SONS AND MY DAUGHTERS."
--- [Ether 3: 14 - The Book Of Mormon]


"1 Then the Lord answered Job
OUT OF THE WHIRLWIND,
and said,

"4 Where wast thou when
I LAID THE FOUNDATIONS
OF THE EARTH?

Declare, if thou hast understanding."

"5 Who hath laid the measures thereof,
if thou knowest? or
who hath stretched the line upon it?"

"6 Whereupon are the
foundations thereof fastened?
or who laid
THE CORNER STONE thereof;

{ THE CORNER STONE is The Saviour}

"7 WHEN THE MORNING STARS
SANG TOGETHER,

AND ALL THE SONS OF GOD
SHOUTED FOR JOY?"
--- [Job 38: 1 & 4-7 - Bible]


{ "THE MORNING STARS"
{are} THE SONS OF GOD
{in Premortality -
(Life before this earth life)
we were foreordained to
receive The Melchizedek Priesthood
in our mortal life upon this earth.}



"FOR I THE LORD GOD,"
CREATED ALL THINGS ... SPIRITUALLY,
BEFORE THEY WERE NATURALLY
UPON THE FACE OF THE EARTH
..."
--- [partial verse from Moses 3: 5 - Pearl of Great Price]


{Including The Melchizedek Priesthood}


"31 For by the power of My Spirit
Created I them; yea, all things
both spiritual and temporal ---"

"32 First spiritual, secondly temporal,
which is the beginning of my work;
and again, first temporal,
and secondly spiritual,
which is the last of my work ---"
--- [D&C 29: 31-32]


"FOR WHO HATH STOOD
IN THE COUNCIL OF THE LORD,"

{ THE COUNCIL OF THE LORD,
was in Premortal Life,

before the world was,
in which The Lord organized His forces,
His prophets and apostles to be,
(those who were chosen to be born into
this earth life and The Lord foreseeing them
becoming His faithful Priesthood leaders,
even His prophets and apostles):
these were spirit-men who would
become known on earth by the names of
Adam, Abraham, Moses,
Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah,
Peter, James, John, Paul,
Nephi, Alma, Nephi, Joseph Smith,
and the current Prophet, Seer, and Revelator,
Thomas S. Monson.
These and many other holy men,
which we might call,
forever holy men,
were part of the many COUNCILS (or meetings)
which The Lord held in Premortal Life,
so that plans could be made
for this earth, and nothing made
without first planning it.}



{continuing with Jeremiah 23: 18,
reiterating the first clause:}


"FOR WHO HATH STOOD
IN THE COUNCIL OF THE LORD,"

"and hath perceived
and heard His Word?
Who hath marked
His Word, and heard it?

{The Prophet-spirits to be!
The Apostle-spirits to be!
That's who}
"marked His Word,
and heard it!"

"19 Behold, A WHIRLWIND of the Lord
is gone forth in fury,
even a grievous WHIRLWIND:
it shall fall grievously
upon the head of the wicked."

"20 The anger of the Lord
shall not return,
until He have executed,
and till He hath performed
the thoughts of His heart;
IN THE LATTER-DAYS"

{When you learn about}
THE COUNCIL OF THE LORD,"
{Which you learn about only
in the Lord's Church, only
in The Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-Day Saints}


YE SHALL CONSIDER IT perfectly,
IN THE LATTER-DAYS"

{Among the things which
YE SHALL CONSIDER
{is that The Lord did not send the
the Catholic Fathers and the Catholic Cardinals
and even The Pope Himself.
The Popes (who are not mentioned
anywhere in The Bible),
did not take part
IN THE COUNCIL OF THE LORD,"
before the world was.
Nor did Baptist Ministers and Lutheran Pastors.
Nor the clergymen from hundreds of
churches which claim to be of Christ
but are NOT!}



{continuing}


"21 I have not sent these prophets,
yet they ran:
I have not spoken to them,
yet they prophesied.

"22 BUT IF THEY
HAD STOOD IN MY COUNCIL,"

{meaning those COUNCILS

in Pre-Mortal Life in which The Saviour
planned everything for this world
before the world was actually created}


"and had caused my people
to hear my words,
then they should have
turned them from their evil way,
and from the evil
of their doings."
--- [Jeremiah 23: 18-22 - Bible]


"According to that
which was ORDAINED IN THE MIDST
OF THE COUNCIL OF
THE ETERNAL GOD

of all other Gods,
BEFORE THIS WORLD WAS,
that should be reserved
unto the finishing
and the end thereof,
when every man shall enter
into his eternal presence
and into his immortal rest."
--- [D&C 121: 32]


"22 Now the Lord
had shown unto me, Abraham,
the intelligences that were organized
before the world was;
AND AMONG ALL THESE
THERE WERE MANY
OF THE NOBLE AND GREAT ONES;

"23 And God saw these souls
that they were good,
and He stood
in the midst of them,
and He said:
THESE I WILL MAKE MY RULERS;
for He stood among those
that were SPIRITS,

{Before any of us were
born into this life with bodies
of flesh and bone, we first were
spirits in the Premortal Life,
having spiritual bodies, in which we
walked and talked and either
followed Jesus or did not follow Jesus.}


{continuing}

"and He saw that they were good;
and he said unto me:
ABRAHAM, THOU ART ONE OF THEM;
THOU WAST CHOSEN BEFORE
THOU WAST BORN.

--- [Abraham 3: 22-23 - Pearl of Great Price]


"BEFORE I FORMED THEE
IN THE BELLY
I KNEW THEE
,

and before thou camest
forth out of the womb
I sanctified thee,
AND I ORDAINED THEE
A PROPHET
unto the nations."
--- [Jeremiah 1: 5 - Bible]


"55 I observed that they were also
AMONG THE NOBLE AND GREAT ONES;
WHO WERE CHOSEN IN THE BEGINNING TO BE
RULERS IN THE CHURCH OF GOD
."

"56 EVEN BEFORE THEY WERE BORN,
they, with many others, received
their first lessons in the
WORLD OF SPIRITS
and were prepared to come forth in
the due time of The Lord
to labor in His vineyard for the
salvation of the souls of men."
--- [D&C 138: 55-56]


"29 For whom He did FOREKNOW,
He also did predestinate to be
conformed to the image of
His Son, that He might be
THE FIRSTBORN AMONG MANY BRETHREN."

"30 Moreover whom He did predestinate,
THEM HE ALSO CALLED:
AND WHOM HE CALLED,
THEM HE ALSO JUSTIFIED:
AND WHOM HE JUSTIFIED,
THEM HE ALSO GLORIFIED."

--- [Romans 8: 29-30 --- Bible]


"22 AND THE GLORY WHICH THOU
GAVEST ME I HAVE GIVEN THEM
:

that they may be ONE,
even as WE ARE ONE:

"23 I in them,
and thou in me,
THAT THEY MAY BE MADE
PERFECT IN ONE;


{One Atonement, One Saviour, One Church}

and that the world
may know that
THOU HAST SENT ME,
and hast loved them,
as thou hast loved me."
--- [John 17: 22-23 - Bible]


"24 AND THERE STOOD ONE AMONG THEM
THAT WAS LIKE UNTO GOD,


{Jesus had already been chosen by
God The Father to be the Firstborn God-son,
or in other words the First Son of God to
become a God.}


"and He said unto those
who were with Him:
We will go down,
for there is space there,
and we will take
of these materials,
and we will make an earth
whereon these may dwell;

"25 And we will prove them herewith,
to see if they will
do all things whatsoever
the Lord their God
shall command them;"
--- [Abraham 3: 24-25 - Pearl Of Great Price]


{One of the main things
that He commands us is to be
"CALLED OF GOD"
AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK."
To receive the same Priesthood
that The Saviour received from The Father.
To take upon us
The Oath & Covenant of The Priesthood.}



"AS THOU HAST SENT ME
INTO THE WORLD,

{With The Melchizedek Priesthood}

EVEN SO HAVE I
ALSO SENT THEM INTO THE WORLD."

{With The Melchizedek Priesthood}

--- [John 17: 18 - Bible]


"9 And being made perfect,
He became the author of
ETERNAL SALVATION
UNTO ALL THEM THAT OBEY HIM:"

"10 CALLED OF GOD AN HIGH PRIEST
AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK."
--- [Hebrews 5: 9-10 - Bible]


"19 For the Law made nothing perfect,
but the bringing in
of a BETTER HOPE DID;
BY THE WHICH WE DRAW
NIGH UNTO GOD
.


"20 And inasmuch as not without
an oath he was made priest

"21 Aor those priests were made
without an oath; {No Oath & Covenant}
BUT THIS WITH AN
OATH {& COVENANT}
BY HIM {GOD THE FATHER}
that said unto Him, {GOD THE FIRSTBORN SON}
The Lord {GOD THE FATHER} sware
and will not repent,
THOU ART A PRIEST FOREVER
AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK:

"22 Ay so much was Jesus made
a surety of A BETTER TESTAMENT!

."28 For the Law maketh men
High Priests which have infirmity;
BUT THE WORD OF THE OATH,
{& COVENANT OF THE PRIESTHOOD}
which was since the Law,
maketh The Son,
who is consecrated for evermore."
--- [Hebrews 7: 19-22 & 28 - Bible]


"13 For when God
made promise to Abraham,
because He could swear
by no greater,
HE {GOD THE FATHER}
SWARE BY HIMSELF!"

"14 For men verily swear
by the greater:
and an oath for confirmation
is to them
an end of all strife.

"17 Wherein God, willing more abundantly
TO SHEW UNTO
THE HEIRS OF PROMISE
the immutability of His COUNCIL,
CONFIRMED IT BY AN OATH:

{THE OATH & COVENANT OF THE PRIESTHOOD}

"18 That by two immutable things
{The Aaronic Priesthood & The Melchizedek Priesthood}
in which it was impossible
for God to lie,
we might have a strong consolation,
who have fled for refuge
to lay hold upon
THE HOPE SET BEFORE US:

"19 WHICH HOPE
{The Aaronic Priesthood & The Melchizedek Priesthood}
we have as an anchor of the soul,
both sure and stedfast,
and which entereth into that
within the veil;

"20 Whither the forerunner
is for US ENTERED, EVEN JESUS,
MADE AN HIGH PRIEST FOR EVER
AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK."
--- [Hebrews 6: 13 & 16-20 - Bible]


{The following is called,
The Oath & Covenant of The Priesthood:}



"33 For whoso is faithful
unto the obtaining
these TWO PRIESTHOODS"
{The Aaronic Priesthood & The Melchizedek Priesthood}
"of which I have spoken,
and the magnifying their calling,
are sanctified by the Spirit
unto the renewing of their bodies.

"34 They become the sons
of Moses and of Aaron
and the seed of Abraham,
and the church and kingdom,
and the elect of God.

"35 And also all they
who receive this priesthood receive me,
saith the Lord;

"36 For he that receiveth
my servants receiveth me;

"37 And he that receiveth me
receiveth my Father;

"38 AND HE THAT RECEIVETH MY FATHER
RECEIVETH MY FATHER'S KINGDOM;
THEREFORE ALL THAT MY FATHER HATH
SHALL BE GIVEN UNTO HIM.
"

"39 And this is according to
THE OATH AND COVENANT
WHICH BELONGETH TO THE PRIESTHOOD.


"40 Therefore, ALL THOSE
WHO RECEIVE THE PRIESTHOOD,
RECEIVE THIS OATH
AND COVENANT OF MY FATHER,

which He cannot break,
neither can it be moved."
--- [D&C 84: 33-40]


"72 To perform the mercy
promised to our fathers,
and to remember HIS HOLY COVENANT;

"73 THE OATH {& COVENANT}
which He {God The Father}
sware to our father Abraham."
--- [Luke 1: 72-73 - BIBLE]


"8 My name is Jehovah,
and I know the end
from the beginning;
therefore my hand
shall be over thee.

"( And I will make
of thee a great nation,
and I will bless
thee above measure,
and make thy name
great among all nations,
and thou shalt be a blessing
unto thy seed after thee,
that in their hands
they shall bear this ministry
and PRIESTHOOD unto all nations;

"10 AND I WILL BLESS THEM
THROUGH THY NAME;
FOR AS MANY AS RECEIVE THIS
GOSPEL SHALL BE CALLED
AFTER THY NAME,
AND SHALL BE ACCOUNTED THY SEED,

and shall rise up
and bless thee,
as their father;

"11 And I will bless them
that bless thee,
and curse them that curse thee;
and in thee
(that is, IN THY PRIESTHOOD)
and in thy seed
(that is, THY PRIESTHOOD),
for I give unto thee
a promise that this right
shall continue in thee,
and in thy seed after thee,
(that is to say, the literal seed,
or the seed of the body)
SHALL ALL THE FAMILIES
OF THE EARTH BE BLESSED,

even with the blessings
of the Gospel,
WHICH ARE
THE BLESSINGS OF SALVATION,
EVEN OF LIFE ETERNAL."

--- [Abraham 2: 8-11 - Pearl Of Great Price]


"If therefore perfection
were by The Levitical Priesthood,"
{aka, The Aaronic Priesthood}
"(for under it" {The Aaronic Priesthood} "the people
received The Law of Moses),
what further need was there
that ANOTHER PRIEST should rise
AFTER THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK,
and not be called after
the order of Aaron?"
--- [Hebrews 7: 11 - Bible]


"1 THERE ARE, IN THE CHURCH,
TWO PRIESTHOODS, namely,
the Melchizedek and Aaronic,
including the Levitical Priesthood.

"2 Why the first
is called the Melchizedek Priesthood
is because Melchizedek was such
a great high priest.

"3 BEFORE HIS DAY IT WAS CALLED
THE HOLY PRIESTHOOD,
AFTER THE ORDER
OF THE SON OF GOD.

"4 But out of respect or reverence
to the name
of the Supreme Being,
to avoid the too frequent
repetition of his name,
they, the Church, in ancient days,
called that priesthood after Melchizedek,
or THE MELCHIZEDEK PRIESTHOOD.

"5 All other authorities or offices
in the Church are appendages
to this Priesthood.

"6 BUT THERE ARE TWO DIVISIONS
OR GRAND HEADS
--- ONE IS THE MELCHIZEDEK PRIESTHOOD,
AND THE OTHER IS
THE AaRONIC OR LEVITICAL PRIESTHOOD.
"
--- [D&C 107: 1-6]


"8 The Melchizedek Priesthood
holds the right of presidency,
and has power and authority
over all the offices in The Church
in all ages of the world,
to administer in spiritual things."

"9 The Presidency of the High Priesthood,
after the order of Melchizedek,
have a right to officiate in
all the offices in the church."
--- [D&C 107: 8-9]


"21 Of necessity there are presidents,
or presiding officers growing out of,
or appointed of or from among
those who are ordained to
the several offices
in these two priesthoods."

"22 Of the Melchizedek Priesthood,
three Presiding High Priests,
chosen by the body,
appointed and ordained to that office,
and upheld by the confidence,
faith, and prayer of the church,
form a quorum of
THE PRESIDENCY OF THE CHURCH."
--- [D&C 107: 21-22]


" SURELY THE LORD GOD
WILL DO NOTHING,
BUT HE REVEALETH HIS SECRET UNTO
HIS SERVANTS THE PROPHETS.
"
--- [Amos 3: 7 - Bible]


"19 Now therefore ye are no more
strangers and foreigners,
but fellowcitizens with The Saints"
{even The Saints of}
{The Church of Jesus Christ
of Latter-Day Saints}

"and of the household of God;"

"20 AND ARE BUILT UPON
THE FOUNDATION OF
THE APOSTLES AND PROPHETS,

Jesus Christ himself being
the chief cornerstone."
--- [Ephesians 2: 19-20 - Bible]


"23 The twelve traveling councilors are
CALLED TO BE THE TWELVE APOSTLES,

or special witnesses of
the name of Christ in all the world

thus differing from other officers
in the church
in the duties of their calling."

"24 And they form a quorum,
equal in authority and power
to the three presidents
previously mentioned."
--- [D&C 107: 23-24]


"1 After these things
THE LORD APPOINTED OTHER SEVENTY ALSO,
and sent them two and two before His face
into every city and place,
Whither He himself would come."
--- [Luke 10: 1 - Bible]


"25 THE SEVENTY ARE ALSO
CALLED TO PREACH THE GOSPEL,
AND TO BE ESPECIAL WITNESSES

unto the Gentiles and in all the world,
thus differing from other
officers in the church
in the duties of their calling."

"26 And they form a quorum,
EQUAL IN AUTHORITY TO THAT
OF THE TWELVE SPECIAL WITNESSES
OR APOSTLES

just named."
--- [D&C 107: 25-26]


"10 HIGH PRIESTS
AFTER THE ORDER OF
THE MELCHIZEDEK PRIESTHOOD"

have a right to officiate in
their own standing, under
the direction of the presidency,
in administering spiritual things,
and also in the office of an elder,
priest (of the Levitical order),
teacher, deacon, and member."
--- [D&C 107: 10]


" THE OFFICE OF AN ELDER
COMES UNDER
THE PRIESTHOOD OF MELCHIZEDEK.
"
--- [D&C 107: 8-10]


" AND WHEN THEY HAD
ORDAINED THEM ELDERS
IN EVERY CHURCH


{In the Latter-Days this would be:
"In Every STAKE" }

"and had prayed with fasting,
they commended them to The Lord,
ON WHOM THEY BELIEVED."
--- [Acts 14: 23 - Bible]


"18THE POWER AND AUTHORITY OF THE HIGHER,
OR MELCHIZEDEK PRIESTHOOD,
IS TO HOLD THE KEYS OF ALL

THE SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS OF THE CHURCH."

"19TO HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF RECEIVING
THE MYSTERIES OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN,
TO HAVE THE HEAVENS OPENED UNTO THEM,
TO COMMUNE WITH THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY
AND CHURCH OF THE FIRSTBORN,
AND TO ENJOY THE COMMUNION
AND PRESENCE OF
GOD THE FATHER, AND JESUS
THE MEDIATOR OF THE NEW COVENANT
."
--- [D&C 107: 18-19]


"Verily I say unto you,
I now give unto you
the officers belonging
to my Priesthood,
that ye may hold
THE KEYS thereof,
EVEN THE PRIESTHOOD WHICH IS AFTER
THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK,
WHICH IS AFTER THE ORDER
OF MINE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON."

{And I bear testimony of these truths
about The Melchizedek Priesthood
