The Destroying Angel to Pass By
President J. Reuben Clark

The promise that the destroying angel shall pass by the saints who are walking in obedience to the commandments and keeping the Word of Wisdom means that all those who qualify themselves will be permitted so to live out their lives that they may gain the full experiences and get the full knowledge which they need in order to progress to the highest exaltation in eternity. All these will live until their work is finished and God calls them back to their eternal home, as a reward.

(President J. Reuben Clark, CR, Oct. 1940, pp. 17-18)
