    The Sealing Power and Gathering Israel


    Elijah was the last Old Testament prophet before Jesus Christ to the sealing power of the Melchizedek priesthood, and he restored this power on April 3, 1836. The sealing power is one reason that Elijah’s return was so important: it allows us to be united eternally in families and enables us to receive ordinances on behalf of our ancestors in the temple. It is instrumental to the gathering of Israel.
