Priestess unto the Most High God

For many women in the church, the potential to receive an endowment of power and authority from on High is a beautiful blessing. However, the current temple blessing defers to antiquated gender positioning in which a husband rules over his wife and posterity. However, there are a number of sources, including Heber and Vilate Kimball, Phinehas Richards, John Taylor, Eliza R. Snow, and some 20th-century prophets and apostles that point toward the glory of the original promise to become hereafter priests and “priestesses unto the Most High God.”
