"Brethren, I bear testimony to the fact that that promise has been realized in the lives of many of us. I know that it has been realized in the life of President David O. McKay, that he has been sanctified by the Spirit unto the renewing of his body, and some of the rest of us are better off today than we were many years ago so far as physical health is concerned-we attribute that fact to His blessing." Hugh B. Brown, "The Abundant Life," [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1965], p. 147

"Who in the name of the Lord can apprehend such language as this? Who can comprehend that, by obeying the celestial law, all that our Father has shall be given unto us-exaltations, thrones, principalities, power, dominion-who can comprehend it? Nevertheless it is here stated. How few there are on the earth today, or in any dispensation, who have been able to abide the celestial law of God. It brings down the hatred of the whole generation in which we live. No man can live the celestial law without bringing upon his head persecution. It cost the Savior his life; he suffered an ignominious death upon the cross. Joseph Smith sealed his testimony with his blood, as also have others connected with this Church and kingdom." Wilford Woodruff, "The Discourses of Wilford Woodruff," edited by G. Homer Durham [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1969], p. 79

"The word 'receive' in these sentences has deep meaning. To receive in this connection seems to mean more than merely to accept casually, but to magnify and develop and make effective. To receive the servants might mean to accept calls and responsibilities and to serve well and faithfully; to receive the Lord would mean loving him and obeying all his commandments; to receive the Father would mean to leave nothing undone toward arriving at personal perfection; and all this means exaltation and eternal life, for the promise is the kingdom and 'all that my Father hath.' A moment's reflection will remind us of the infinite knowledge, power, dominion, kingdoms, exaltations, and joy offered to us here in an oath and covenant which the Father cannot break. If we measure up fully we are guaranteed limitless blessings!" Spencer W. Kimball, "The Miracle of Forgiveness," [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1969]

"These are sufficiently plain to reveal to us that which God has in contemplation for His faithful children. The Latter-day Saints are promised, if they are faithful, that they shall receive the fulness as Jesus received it; and Jesus received it as the Father received it. In the words of Paul they become 'heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ.' (Romans 8:17.) There is nothing that the Savior has attained unto that God's faithful children are not promised. They are promised the same blessings, the same power, the same authority, the same gifts, the same graces." George Q. Cannon, "Gospel Truth: Discourses and Writings of President George Q. Cannon," selected, arranged, and edited by Jerreld L. Newquist [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1987], p. 88

"No honor that will ever come to any of us conferred by men of the world, or any man-made honorable body, will ever approach in importance the great honor and blessing which came to us the day we were ordained to the holy Melchizedek Priesthood. This is a priceless blessing, an eternal blessing, and I hope and pray that we will honor it all the days of our lives. Wealth, power, position are as nothing, by comparison, to the honor and blessing which come through the priesthood of the Living God." Ezra Taft Benson, "Conference Report," October 1952
