Ok, What’s the Difference Between the Pre-Mortal Existence and Earth Life?

Don - January 23, 2008

I realize the obvious answer – mortal body – test by faith because of the veil. But there are so many similar things going on I found it interesting to ponder.

We had some kind of birth there. We came into existence from a different existence to that one. We had spirit bodies. Do spirit bodies feel pain? Since spirit is mater, only more refined does that mean pain is possible? Not just mental but some kind of real pain like we feel? If you fall down does it hurt? Can you (materially) hurt yourself…disrupt the mater from it’s normal form?

What about our experences there. We learned things, we associated with others there and learned from them. That sounds a lot like here. We gained from those experiences, same as we gain from experiences here.

When it was time for us to die there I think those left behind probably felt saddness of some sort. Think about all those people who were close to us, it’s our time to go to earth – so we “die” there, we’re gone – poof! Those left behind don’t get to see us again (at least that we’ll remember here – maybe we’ll reunite as friends after death here, but did we know that there?!). That could actually make it sadder than death here. At least when seperated upon death here, we know we’ll get to see our loved ones again.

It was a time of birth there, it was a time of testing – same as here. We were judged there, same as here. We died there same as here. We went to a different world at death same as here.

I really don’t see much difference. This physical body ads a new dimension, same as our spirit body brought a new dimension to our existence, but that spirit body was “physical” too in some degree.

So, how much effect did our pre-mortal life have on our present existence? Did it have more or less effect than this earth life? And if we die and come back during the Millenium, how much effect will “that” life have on our eternal existence. I would submit that our premortal existence is a whole heck of a lot more important than we normally consider it to be. It might have even more effect on our eternal life than even this existence!?


  1. I am in general agreement with you on all of this.

    So, how much effect did our pre-mortal life have on our present existence?


    I agree that it might be much more important.

    I made a post along these lines here.

  3. If we came to this earth because we kept our “first estate,” then keeping our second estate must consist of something too. We understand that to be 1) to gain a physical body and 2) to live by faith / gain experience. We also understand that those who die before the age of accountability are celestial candidates. That must mean they gained their physical bodies here and gained the necessary experience and faith *prior* to their births into mortality.

    My take is that the exercise of our agency in the pre-mortal existence is the major determinant of the circumstances of our birth here.

  4. Didn’t you pay ANY attention when you watched “Saturday’s Warrior” and “My Turn On Earth”?

  5. I guess to me, the difference is similar to the difference between quantum physics and physical science.

    To many of us in this physical world, physical science (i.e. Gravity, Force, Work) makes sense. We can touch it. We can experience it. We’ve seen it happen in our every day life.

    The majority of us, however, find quantum physics much harder to grasp (i.e. String Theory, Space vs. Time, Wave Particle Duality). We cannot see these things with our own eyes, touch them, taste them, smell them.

    Maybe in our spirit forms, we weren’t able to understand physical science, but we could grasp quantum physics. There are things in each life that we simply have a hard time understanding because we haven’t been able to truly experience them. Maybe we are simply being forced to looking at things from an entirely different frame of reference.

    Oh, and our pre-mortal exitance is what decided weather or not we would gain a mortal body. Not insignificant if you ask me.
