The Holy Spirit of Promise Posted: 25 Sep 2008
"The Holy Spirit of Promise is the ratifying power of the Holy Ghost. When sealed by the Holy Spirit of Promise, an ordinance, vow, or covenant is binding on earth and in heaven. (See D&C 132:7.) Receiving this 'stamp of approval' from the Holy Ghost is the result of faithfulness, integrity, and steadfastness in honoring gospel covenants 'in [the] process of time' (Moses: 7:21). However, this sealing can be forfeited through unrighteousness and transgression."Purifying and sealing by the Holy Spirit of Promise constitute the culminating steps in the process of being born again.
