The Resurrection, Judgment, and Immortality
July 23, 2013

When We Are Resurrected We Will Be Judged By Jesus Christ

Gospel Basics Series: The Plan of Salvation

When we are resurrected, Jesus Christ will summon each one of us individually to a meeting. Jesus Christ will judge us for the final time. In the scriptures it is known as the final judgment. We will have a perfect recollection of all our guilt and wicked works we did. We will also perfectly remember our righteous actions. Jesus Christ will show mercy on us if we repented. The Lord will reward us according to our works and desires.

The resurrection made it so everyone will be immortal- we will live forever. Immortality is a free gift given to everyone, the righteous and wicked alike.

Eternal life is different. Eternal life is also a gift of God but it is not given to everyone unconditionally like immortality is. Jesus will only award eternal life to those who obeyed his gospel and kept His commandments. Eternal life is the highest state that we can achieve. You obtain eternal life through the atonement of Jesus Christ and repenting of your sins.

Eternal life is exaltation. Exaltation is to live with God and Jesus Christ. It is to have the life that God the Father and Jesus Christ enjoy. The life they enjoy is in their family. It is to have your own family and bear children with your spouse forever. Only those who are exalted will have the blessing of having an eternal family. Eternal means unlimited.
