I would like to hear what this means to you guys or gals that come to this forum.

D&C 132: 7
  7 And verily I say unto you, that the aconditions of this law are these: All covenants, contracts, bonds, obligations, boaths, cvows, performances, connections, associations, or expectations, that are not made and entered into and sealed by the HOLY SPIRIT OF PROMISE, of him who is eanointed, both as well for time and for all eternity, and that too most holy, by frevelation and commandment through the medium of mine anointed, whom I have appointed on the earth to hold this gpower (and I have appointed unto my servant Joseph to hold this hpower in the last days, and there is never but one on the earth at a time on whom this power and the ikeys of this priesthood are conferred), are of no efficacy, virtue, or force in and after the resurrection from the dead; for all contracts that are not made unto this end have an end when men are dead.

D&C 76: 53
  53 And who overcome by faith, and are sealed by the HOLY SPIRIT OF PROMISE, which the Father sheds forth upon all those who are just and true.


There are other references to it in the standard works.  Does it relate to a "calling and election made sure"?
