I guess I’ve been asking you questions constantly lately, but will we ever know what our spiritual birth names were? Jesus was Jehovah in the pre-earth life, there was Gabriel and Michael, (I can’t remember who they were on Earth though). Will I know mine?





Dear Joey,

I don’t see why that knowledge from the pre-mortal existence wouldn’t be restored to us. When Adam gathered his family at Adam-ondi-Ahman and blessed his righteous posterity, “Lord appeared unto them, and they rose up and blessed Adam, and called him Michael, the prince, the archangel” (D&C 107:54). The knowledge of Adam’s pre-mortal name was revealed to him while he was still alive. The Lord reveals many truths to his children that seek.

(by the way, Noah was the angel Gabriel)
