130 years ago today - Dec 5, 1882

[Apostle Wilford Woodruff Journal] 5 On the night of June 1, 1882 I Wilford Woodruff dreamed that a Messenger Came to me, and said that no person in the spirit world Could work upon, or preach any ordinance of the gospel to the spirits in Prision that had not been Dedicated upon An Altar by some one having the Priesthood on Earth. This of Course was a Dream.

  1. Since only Jesus preached to the spirits in prison (for 3 days and 3 nights) before his resurrection and that work has been finished forever, the messenger that appeared to WW was an evil spirit.

  2. Seems there could be other ways to describe this dream.
