Dear Gramps,

I was wondering if you know of any information about the weapons that were used in the War in Heaven. I would certainly appreciate your help. Thank you so much.





Dear LaDawn,

What an interesting question! Of course nothing is revealed in the scriptures concerning any such weapons, but it is fun to imagine, if there were any, what they could be. In the first place, they could possibly be of some spiritual material, for we understand that spirit is matter:

 There is no such thing as immaterial matter. All spirit is matter, but it is more fine or pure, and can only be discerned by purer eyes;


 We cannot see it; but when our bodies are purified we shall see that it is all matter. (D&C 131:7-8)

Or they could be weapons of the mind and will. There is surely a power associated with righteousness and with the priesthood, and faith is a principle of power by which even mountains can be moved. We’ll have to inquire when we get there.
