As a teenage boy, one night I sat in my room conversing with the voice of the Lord. I was asking Him questions and He was giving me answers. At this point He had shown me the creation of the Earth and enlightened my understanding in many ways. But I had one other question I was afraid to ask.
The Lord eased my mind through the power of the Holy Spirit and, knowing it was alright to ask, I inquired as to where He came from. I felt joy from the Lord, knowing he wished for me to ask as He answered my question with a vision.
I saw, in vision, a pool of what looked like water. There, intelligences were moving on the face of the water. They began rising up and conversing. Then, they began to glow so bright it was hard to look upon them any longer. These then helped others out of the pool as well.
It was then explained to me that what looked like water was in fact “the face of the waters” found in the deep; a great pool of intelligences (Genesis 1: 2, Moses 2: 2, Abraham 4:2). This pool was where we all came from – we were a part of it. Whether the first to leave were Gods to our God or our Gods alone was not made known to me. What was made known was that our Heavenly Father and Mother left on their own, creating their own spirit bodies, then they created their own bodies of flesh and bone as they have now.
These then helped other intelligences create their own spirit bodes. The first to create His own Spirit body was Jehovah/Jesus Christ. He was literally the first born of the Father. Yet He is co-eternal with the Father and a God, just as the Father is a God. From there, other noble and great ones were born to their own created spirit bodies. It was also clear that the lower the intelligence, the greater they needed the help in the creation of their own spirit bodies, yet all humans on this Earth created their spirit bodies themselves.
This is why God, in books of Genesis and Moses, “moved upon the face of the water” but in the book of Abraham, “the Spirits of the Gods” were “brooding” or better said, incubating. God the Father was self-created. We too are self-created, but only through the help of the Lord.
All that were intelligences understood, to their capacity, what was happening and rejoiced greatly upon leaving the face of the waters in the deep. They understood that this was the first part in creating eternal physical bodies of flesh and bone.
It should be understood that matter and intelligence are both co-eternal. Neither has beginning nor end. The progress of joining these two co-eternal forces is the point of all existence and the end of the first eternity (Doctrine and Covenants 93: 33). It is the priesthood and the law that allows this to happen and only by obedience to the law can the priesthood work.
This helped me to understand the vision I had of the creation. In it I saw that we created the Earth, as we are gods – children of God the Father and a Heavenly Mother. (Whether we are all from the same Heavenly Mother or if Heavenly Father has more than one wife, I do not know, but I believe that all of the people on this planet are from the same Heavenly Mother.) Just as God the Father created His own body, first in spirit then in the flesh, we are now doing the same.
However, His identity is greater than ours, as we need His divine guidance. We cannot do this on our own. Likewise, our obedience of the Law is too weak. We need a Savior. This is the role of Jesus Christ. His perfection is so great that His divinity is also eternally greater than ours. We need a way to converse with them, this is the role of the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit, who’s divinity is also eternally greater than ours. He too was one of the first out of the deep, along with Jesus Christ. This is why they are Gods, worthy of our worship; and we are gods, children of the most high.
We are all self-created, but we need greater support. This is how God is our Father. He and our Heavenly Mother look out for us, lead us guide us and sent their Sons – Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit – to walk beside us so that we can find our way.
This is a record of one of the visions and revelations I have had over the years with my own personal commentary. I have shared this, not to replace scriptures, nor to add to them. These revelations are mine and belong only to me and my family. They are not binding on any church or religion. Nor are they binding on my family. It is included here to be used as the Lord directs me and to help give readers a better look into my world view.
