  • Welcome to another episode of unofficial missionaries. I'm Justin Winch and I'm
  • Izzy. Early, you may have heard us talk before about the plan of salvation. Today
  • we're gonna go a little bit more in-depth into what that is. "How deep? It's
  • classified."
  • And it all starts with the beginning of time. Even before time.
  • Well actually, who knows we are going to talk about though, pre-mortal
  • existence. Meaning pre-people were before mortal earth right so pre-mortal before
  • this earth life existence. Where were you before you were born?
  • Did you exist before you were born? You can probably guess by the context clues
  • that we believe you did. You know I feel like this is an interesting concept that
  • like, you're born as a baby and you live this life but to think that there's a
  • whole bunch that happened. There's something before that yeah some plan put
  • in place. I think what's so unique about
  • the Church of Jesus Christ, is that he does give us this idea that like we just
  • didn't ask oh, you were brave right. That he had prepared us beforehand in this
  • pre-mortal existence to know our purpose, to know who we were. We all existed as
  • spirit children, and Heavenly Father he wanted us to become like him. One of the
  • biggest differences between us a spirit children and Heavenly Father was that
  • Heavenly Father had a glorified body. Like a physical body yeah
  • glorified right and we didn't have that. And so that
  • neat that meant that we needed to come to earth, to receive a body, and live
  • a life so that we can become more like Heavenly Father. And that's where Jesus
  • Christ comes in with with a plan. For us to come to earth have agency make
  • choices learn and grow, and then if we used our agency correctly to be able to
  • return to a heavenly fathers presence. Exactly and we could choose to return to Heavenly
  • Father. But that meant that some people weren't going to make it back by choice,
  • and which is like hard but it was kind of like necessary. Well some of these
  • spirits didn't like that and that's where this guy Satan comes in Lucifer's.
  • Dude was another spirit you know and he's like, well what if we all just came
  • to earth what if we took away our agency, and I made it so that we returned to
  • Heavenly Father. And force them to get back. Yeah
  • and you give all the glory to me because I came up with this amazing plan. So, you
  • have these two plans obviously one of them was right because Heavenly Father
  • like helped make it you know with Jesus Christ. Then Satan's like got his own
  • thing going on so, then all the spirits we had an opportunity to choose. That's
  • what's called the war in heaven. I imagine all spirits with like Spears
  • like gonna be released stabbing people and I'm like I don't know how that
  • works. I think it was more war like ideas.
  • Yeah anyway right one then and then we chose science one third of the hosts of
  • heaven chose to follow Satan, and the other 2/3 chose to follow Jesus Christ.
  • The one third were cast out and remain of spirits forever. The other two-thirds
  • came here you chose to come here, you chose Gods plan in the beginning good job, so
  • why not choose it again? Okay but for real we're not kidding.
  • But there had to be an earth for us to come to. It didn't exist you know
  • everything was spiritual, there was there wasn't an earth yet for us. Yeah
  • Jesus Christ under the direction of God created this earth for us to come to.
  • This very one we're on and this is a place that that we come, and it it has
  • faults and it has happiness as goodness. Yeah I don't know after Christ created
  • that earth it was time for us to actually come to the earth. So, Adam and
  • Eve were sent to the earth you guys know that story. I just want to preface that
  • this isn't like the most exact details, but the moral of the story is that God
  • did create the world. And that Adam and Eve were put on the earth by him, and
  • that they did live in the Garden of Eden wherever that was and they had a choice.
  • To eat of this fruit or not eat of this fruit? And they were tempted by Satan to
  • eat of a fruit and God warned them that if they did eat it through of the
  • knowledge of good of evil that they would have to leave the Garden of Eden.
  • But God knew that like we needed, hardship we needed trials to be able to
  • grow. And so it was kind of all part of
  • his plan for Satan to tempt them, for them to
  • for them to choose to leave the Garden of Eden. And because Adam and Eve that
  • happened does that mean we were able to come here and be born. And I just want
  • to read a scripture out of the Book of Mormon that actually talks about this
  • period that we are supposed to be here on the earth it says, "And the days of the
  • children of men so you and me were prolonged according to the will of God
  • that they might repent while in the flesh wherefore, their state became a
  • state of probation and their time was lengthened according to the commandments
  • with which the Lord gave unto the children of men for he gave commandment
  • that all men must repent for he showed unto all men that they were lost because
  • of the transgression of their parents." So, because Adam and Eve we were sent here,
  • but not unfortunately because that's what we actually wanted to be here. And I
  • love that it talks about repentance a lot, because the whole purpose of us
  • being here is to grow and progress. And there's no way we could do that without
  • Jesus Christ. He gives us the opportunity that when we do mess up, that when we do
  • make mistakes, that when do we feel heartache and pain, we can feel whole
  • again and we can feel like we are making that progress. Because God knew that this
  • life is gonna be hard, God knew that we would be thrown to and fro left and
  • right, and instead of leaving us here to figure it out
  • that's not much progression he gave us his son Jesus Christ and that's my
  • favorite part of the plan of salvation. It's hard to have this attitude but in
  • reality when you're facing a trial, it is like that's kind of the reason we're
  • here to grow. If we never faced anything hard ever it would almost defeat the
  • purpose of this existence. It's like if you want to grow muscle you have to go
  • to the gym and you have to break your muscles so that it can build back
  • stronger. If the biggest and strongest trees in the world are the ones that
  • have been like through hard winds and storms and stuff so that they grew
  • stronger it's just like the story of life is that trials can make you
  • stronger. It's hard and we can't do it on our own and that's what that's like what
  • Izzy was saying is that we can only do it through Jesus Christ. And so I
  • guess that's why we're here like sharing the gospel with you guys, is to help you
  • understand that, and that you can make it throw the trials in your life and you
  • can come out better than you were before but only through Jesus Christ in himself.
  • So, we want to invite you to access that power through prayer and
  • studying the scriptures and getting to know Jesus Christ better. And we hope
  • that this clears up a little bit about what the pre-earth life is pre-existence.
  • And how the earth was created and everything, and we're gonna
  • continue to go more in depth on this plan this plan of salvation the plan of
  • happiness that God has given us. Please like and subscribe the channel to share
  • these videos. Let everyone know I don't know why I thought of Newsies I just like
  • don't like I just start dancing. Seize the day if you have questions
  • about what we've taught and we can like maybe leave links to videos that we've
  • already done. Or answer your questions um we're here for you guys we love bye.
