The Millennium is One of Four Stages of Earth’s Existence

The Millennium is One of Four Stages of Earth’s Existence

Joseph Fielding Smith

Joseph Fielding Smith 1876-1972

This earth is passing through four grand degrees or stages: 1. The creation and the condition antedating the fall. 2. The telestial condition which has prevailed since the fall of Adam. 3. The terrestrial condition that will prevail when the Savior comes and ushers in the millennial era. 4. The celestial or final state of the earth when it has obtained its exaltation. There is, also, what the Lord has called a “little season,” following the millennium when Satan will be loosed and the last great battle will be fought. (Doctrines of Salvation, 1:82)
