• is also a place of zero glory, called Outer Darkness, reserved for Satan, his demonic followers and those who had a full understanding of Christ and God Almighty, yet brazenly rejected them.
  • That the relative comparisons between these kingdoms of glory are like unto the sun, the moon and the stars in brightness.
  • That the earth is currently in a Telestial status. However it will be purified and progress first into the Terrestrial kingdom, then later into the Celestial kingdom.

We do not know what life will be like after Judgment Day, nor do we know much about what our powers, capabilities and limits will be within those kingdoms of glory. However, we do know this: with the possible exception of those confined to Outer Darkness, we progress eternally.

The question then becomes: is it possible for those who are assigned lower kingdoms to ever achieve a higher kingdom? Is it possible for, say, someone in the Telestial kingdom to eventually advance to the Terrestrial Kingdom? Or the Terrestial to the Celestial? Based upon the eternal principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the answer would appear to be “yes.”

The question then expands into: how is such advancement accomplished? In seeking an answer to this, there is something else we know: God has created “worlds without end” — and there have been many earths such as this one in this universe. Consider the Lord’s words in the Book of Moses in the Pearl of Great Price, chapter 1 verses 37 to 39:

“The heavens, they are many, and they cannot be numbered unto man; but they are numbered unto me, for they are mine. And as one earth shall pass away, and the heavens thereof even so shall another come, and there is no end to my works, neither to my words. For behold, this is my work and my glory—to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man.”

For those who did not obtain the highest kingdom, could it be possible that they could have another opportunity at mortality — and therefore another opportunity to be awarded the highest kingdom? Could they be permitted to part with their resurrected bodies, then once again enter into mortality to new parents on a completely new earth — thus gaining a precious new opportunity to overcome a fallen world and obtain the highest kingdom?

I must insist that I, the author, have no idea whether this is true or not. If it is true, then it is similar to the concept of reincarnation — yet on an infinitely-organized, multi-galactic scope that stretches out over eons of time and unfathomable depths of creation, instead of a tightly-confined, haphazard, single-earth scope (which nearly all other non-Christian religions teach to their followers).
