1 In the beginning, God was a spirit surrounded by nothingness.
2 As the theologian Saint Thomas Aquinas observed, there are things in motion. And everything in motion must have been put in motion by a mover. And this mover was put in motion by a previous mover. And this previous mover put in motion by another previous mover. But this cannot go on for eternity into the past because then there would be no first mover, and consequently no other mover. There was a First Mover who always existed. And He was God. There can be no beginning to Him as He always must have existed. Otherwise, He wouldn’t be the First Mover. Nothing put Him in motion. (The Argument of the Unmoved Mover, in Summa Theologica)
3 God was always an all-knowing being. In the beginning, He knew everything about nothing because there was nothing. All He knew was that He existed. That made Him all-knowing.
4 In order for God to know everything He knows now, He had to learn everything.
5 God progressed from knowledge to knowledge until he knew everything there is to know.
6 It has been said by the prophet Lorenzo Snow, “As man is, God once was…” (The Teachings of Lorenzo Snow)
7 In the beginning, God was a spirit who learned to make for Himself a body of flesh and bones. He created an earth for Him to dwell on and learn everything there is to know about mortality. As the prophet Joseph Smith said, “…God [H]imself, the Father of us all, dwelt on an earth…” (King Follett Sermon)
8 God progressed from being a spirit, to being like a man, to being like a God — a body of flesh and bones that is parallel to ours but infinitely superior. He has bones like ours, but stronger. He has flesh like ours, but it never dies. He has a brain like ours, but infinitely more intelligent.
9 We are truly parallel to God as far as having a body of flesh and bones. For it is written: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” (Genesis 1:26)
10 In order to preside over the universe, God, a spirit with a body of flesh and bones, created the Holy Ghost. Thus, as the Creeds teach, the Holy Spirit was a force that, from the beginning, permeated everything, for there was nothing but God (an exalted being of flesh and bones). And the Holy Ghost was one with God.
11 For it is written that, in the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth, the Holy Ghost hovered over the waters of the formless earth. (Genesis 1:2)
12 But before God created the heavens and the earth, he created his Firstborn Son named Yeshua — or Jesus. Jesus was a spirit child. God became a Heavenly Father. The spirit Jesus was truly the Son of God.
13 God created Jesus Christ at about the same time He created the Holy Ghost.
14 For it is written: “In the beginning was the Word [Jesus Christ}, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)
15 God loved his One spirit child, Jesus, so much that He was always one with Him — He never let Jesus out of His grasp. God was always in his set. Everything Jesus did God set him to do.
16 And Jesus was always in God’s set. So Jesus was everywhere as God was everywhere. Through the Holy Ghost, who permeates all existence, God the Father and Jesus Christ permeated everything as well. For there was nothing except the God of flesh and bones, the planet he dwelt on, and the Holy Ghost who permeated it all. And, at that, God made for Himself a Son — a spirit who was always in His set and who would act as Him.
17 This Firstborn Son, even Jesus, would start off as a spirit. He would always be in the set of God.
18 Jesus would progress from grace to grace until he had the same exalted body of flesh and bones that His Father has.
19 But he would dwell on the Earth — even the same earth that the billions of God’s spirit children would dwell on — not an earth like the one God dwelt on.
20 And Jesus would be in God’s set as He created the heavens and the Earth where all his spirit children would dwell.
21 As it has been taught by latter-day prophets, Jesus Christ created the heavens and the earth under the direction of God the Heavenly Father.
22 As it is written, “All things were made by [Jesus]; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” (John 1:3)
23 Jesus, our spirit brother, is also our Father who created us. Though he is truly the Son of God the Father, he is also a God.
24 The Athenasian Creed states: “Such as the Father is, such is the Son, and such is the Holy Ghost; the Father uncreated, the Son uncreated, and the Holy Ghost uncreated.”
25 I will remove the veil so you can see. God the Father was uncreated for He was the First Unmoved Mover. He is the Alpha (and the Omega). These are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. He created the Holy Ghost and Jesus Christ, the Son, in the beginning. He created them so early in creation that they can be said to be just as uncreated as the Father. They share in His existence from the Alpha times (of which there is no beginning) and will continue to exist until the Omega times (of which there is no end),
26 Let me explain further. God has infinite lives. An infinite amount of beings can descend from Him. To descend from something means that you became a separate being from something, yet you can remember being that Being from which you came. One being can be divided into infinite beings. Jesus Christ, the Son, descended from God the Father. An eternal veil was cast over his spiritual eyes, and Jesus could not remember being God the Father. Though he came from the infinite lives of God, He was born as a separate being and became a spirit child of God.
27 And the Holy Ghost descended from God as well. But He can remember being God the Father. He remembers having bodies of flesh and bones that God learned to create for Himself. Because he can remember being the Father, the Holy Ghost is not said to be a spirit child. For this gift of memory, the Holy Ghost will never receive a body of flesh and bones like that of Jesus and the Father. The Father wants the Holy Ghost to be just a spirit.
28 And God the Father created billions more spirit children.
29 It is written: “Man was also in the beginning with God.” (Doctrine and Covenants 93:29)
30 God made all His spirit children from His infinite lives. Again, an infinite amount of beings can descend from the One original being. But, just like Jesus, all of God’s spirit children will never remember being God the Father. This eternal veil is what makes us children of God. Furthermore, we are not as inseparably connected to God the Father as Jesus is. Although we shared in the Spirit of Truth that Jesus fully partakes of at all times, and we will receive it fully in the Eternal Life to come, we did not partake of it fully from the beginning as Jesus did. We were not Gods as God the Father and Jesus are. But we can be gods in the life to come.
31 It was also said by the prophet Lorenzo Snow, “…as God is, man may become.” (The Teachings of Lorenzo Snow)
32 It is written: “Every spirit of man was innocent in the beginning.” (Doctrine and Covenants 93:38)
33 And every spirit child would dwell on the earth that Jesus Christ created. For God the Father learned that we, his spirit children, would love Him more if we had to suffer through mortality. That suffering, that ripple in our hearts, that flinching in our spiritual eyes, would make us appreciate a perfect life with God more.
34 And we would progress from grace to grace until we had the same exalted body that Jesus has also received. This is the same exalted body that God, our Heavenly Father, has.
35 For it is written: “…we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.” (Romans 8:16-17)
36 But in order to be exalted by our Heavenly Father, who learned exaltation all by Himself, we must do His will. We must keep His commandments.
37 Every time we act against the will of God it hurts Him. The only way God will feel better after we sin is by blood being shed.
38 In the Old Testament, God commands His children to kill lambs, to sacrifice them in atonement of sins. God sees the blood being shed and feels better about us sinning.
39 In the New Testament, Jesus, who is one with God the Father, is born on this Earth with a body of flesh and bones so he could be sacrificed as the Lamb of God. He would die for our sins.
40 God has to see something get sacrificed to feel better about sin. For the sin of making us able to sin, God sacrificed His Firstborn Son.
41 God has said that without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. God needs to see something die in the place of the sinner who deserves to die because of their sins. The ancient Jews understood, that when a lamb was sacrificed, they needed to imagine themselves being killed as the lamb gets killed. Likewise, we should imagine ourselves being the ones to die as we recall Jesus dying on the cross for us. And we must repent of our sins.
42 We must repent of our sins and turn away from them and do them no more. And we must invoke the Eternal Sacrifice of Jesus Christ. For he is truly an Eternal Being. He existed with God the Father eternally. He is the Eternal Sacrifice, and his blood being shed cleanses our sins.
43 God will always remember this killing. The wounds that Jesus suffered on the cross are still visible on his resurrected body — an exalted body of flesh and bones. They stand as an eternal sign of God’s sacrifice for our sins. God feels better about us sinning. For he is an angry and jealous God. And he needs some way to feel better.
44 Love Jesus as your spirit brother. Worship Him as the father who created you. Pray to God the Father in his name as he is one with the Father. And if you keep His commandments, you will be exalted with Him as a joint-heir of all that he inherited from God the Father, namely, an exalted body of flesh and bones.
45 For it is written, “if ye love me, keep my commandments.” (John 14:15)
