Priesthood keys govern “how the priesthood of God can be used to carry out the purposes of the Lord and bless all who accept the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.”

The keys conferred on Joseph Smith in the Kirtland Temple authorized him (and all successive Presidents of the Church) to gather Israel on both sides of the veil, to bless all covenant children with the blessings of Abraham, and to place a seal of ratification on priesthood ordinances. and covenants, and to seal families eternally.

The keys of the priesthood are what distinguish the Church from every other organization on earth and allow every covenant-keeping man and woman to enjoy “incredible personal spiritual privileges.”

The temple is spiritually strengthening. “Understanding the spiritual privileges made possible in the temple is vital for each of us today.”

The temple is the gateway to the greatest blessings that God has for each of His children. The temple is the only place on earth where people can receive all the blessings promised to Abraham.

“Let us rejoice in the restoration of the priesthood keys that make it possible for you and I to enjoy every spiritual blessing we are willing and worthy to receive.”
