Revelation, 27–28 December 1832 [D&C 88:1–126]

procedeth forth from the presence of God; to fill the emencity of space; the light which is in all things which giveth life to all things, which is the law by which all things are govorned, even the power of God, who sitteth upon his throne; who is in the bosom of eternity, who is in the midst of all things Now verily I say unto you, that through the redemption, which is made for you; is brought to pass the resurection from the dead; (and the spirit, and the body is the soul of man) and the resurection from the dead, is the redemption of the soul; and the redemption of the soul, is through him, who quickneth all things, in whose bosom, it is decreed, that the poor, and the meek of the earth, shall inherit it; therefore it must needs be sanctified, from all unrighteousness, that it may be prepared for the celestial

glory; for after it hath filled the measure of its creation, it shall be crowned with glory, even with the presence of God the father; that bodies, who are of the celestial kingdom may posses it, for ever, & ever; for, for this intent was it made, and created, and for this intent, are they sanctified, and they who are not sanctified, through the law which I have given unto you; even the law of Christ

, must inherit another kingdom even that of a Terestrial kingdom, or that of a telestial kingdom, for he that is not able to abide the law of a celestial kingdom cannot abide a celestial glory, and he who cannot abide, the law of a Terestrial kingdom cannot, abide a Terestrial glory, he who cannot abide the law of a Telestial kingdom [p. 35]
procedeth forth from the presence of God; to fill the  emencity of space; the light which is in all things  which giveth life to all things, which is the law  by which all things are govorned, even the power  of God, who sitteth upon his throne; who is in the  bosom of eternity, who is in the midst of all things  Now verily I say unto you, that through the  redemption, which is made for you; is bro ught to pass the resurection from the dead;  (and the spirit, and the body is the soul of man)9

Emanuel Swedenborg connected the soul with the body, stating that “the body is the effigy, or form, of its soul”; nevertheless, defining “soul” as consisting of both spirit and body was uncommon. Compare, for example, the definition in Noah Webster’s 1828 dictionary of American English: “the spiritual, rational and immortal substance in man, which distinguishes him from brutes.” (Miscellaneous Theological Works, 148; “Soul,” in American Dictionary [1828].)  


 and the resurection from the dead, is the redemp tion of the soul; and the redemption of the soul,  is through him, who quickneth all things, in  whose bosom, it is decreed, that the poor, and  the meek of the earth, shall inherit it;10

See Matthew 5:5.
