Noah Webster’s 1828 dictionary defines “creature” as “that which is created; every being besides the Creator, or every thing not self-existent. The sun, moon and stars; the earth, animals, plants, light, darkness, air, water, &c., are the creatures of God.” (“Creature,” in American Dictionary [1828], italics in original.)

that you may come up unto the crown  prepared for you and be made rulers over many kingdom[s]7

The 16 February 1832 vision stated that those who inherited the celestial world were crowned “kings” and were “given all things.” (Vision, 16 Feb. 1832 [D&C 76:55–56].)  


saith  the Lord God the holy one of Israel Verily Verily I say unto you ye  are little children and ye have not as yet understood how great  blessings the father has put into his own hands and prepared  for you and ye cannot bear all things now8

See Revelation, 9 May 1831 [D&C 50:40].  


nevertheless be of  good cheer for I will lead you along, the kingdom is yours  and the blessings there of are yours and the riches of Eternity are  yours & he who receiveth all things with thankfulness shall be  made glorious in the things of this world even an hundred fold  yea more wherefore do the things which I have commanded  you saith your redeemer even Jesus Christ who prepareth all  things before he cometh and then he will come even with  the church of the first born & receive you in the clowd  and appoint evry man his portion9

The account of the vision of the afterlife that JS and Rigdon experienced in February 1832 stated that those who inherited the celestial kingdom were the “church of the first born.” (Vision, 16 Feb. 1832 [D&C 76:54].)
