"PRELIMINARIES: [The second anointing is administered only to married couples, on the recommendation of a member of the First Presidency or the Quorum of the Twelve, and under the direction of the President of the Church. Only the first portion of the second anointing--the anointing itself--can be performed vicariously for the dead.] [Before a couple can receive the second anointing, the husband must receive the ordinance of washing of feet under the direction of the President of the Church. The washing of feet is administered in the Holy of Holies, or in a sealing room set apart for this purpose.]"(The Second Anointing)
PART I: ANOINTING. "[The rite of anointing is administered in the Holy of Holies, or in another room set apart for that purpose. The rite is performed by the President of the Church, or under his direction. Normally, two witnesses are present.] [For this rite, husband and wife wear the robes of the holy priesthood. It is not necessary for the officiator to do so.] Prayer Circle. [The husband leads a prayer circle, using the true order of prayer taught in the endowment. He offers the signs of the tokens of the holy priesthood, then prays at the altar.]." (The Second Anointing)
"Anointing of the Husband. [The officiator anoints the husband's head with oil. The officiator then lays hands on the husband's head and ordains him a king and a priest to the Most High God, to rule and reign in the House of Israel forever.] [The officiator pronounces upon the husband additional blessings as the Spirit directs. Typically he is blessed with the Holy Spirit of promise; the blessings of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; the power to bind and loose, curse and bless; the power to live as long as life is desirable; the power to open the heavens; the power to attain to Godhood; and the sealing up to eternal life.]." (The Second Anointing)
In this second anointing, we read so much blasphemy when it comes to God's Holy Scripture, the Bible. #1. They enter the holy of holies. #2. The husband and wife are wearing robes of the Holy Priesthood. #3. The husband is ordained to be a king and priest to the Most High God, to rule and reign with Christ. #4. The husband is given the power to attain Godhood. #5. The husband is given the power to seal anyone they want to eternal life. There are more than just these five issues, but let's look at the five and see the problems therein. #1. The holy of holies is no more the moment the temple veil was rent in two when Jesus was crucified. Everyone now has access to God and with no need to go through a temple first. #2. Only Jesus holds the priesthood since the importance of priests and sacrificial offerings was done away with, with Christ. #3. There is no person that can ordain us to a king or priest for the afterlife but God. And as the Bible reads, only certain people will be given the right to be a priest during the millennial reign.
John wrote, "but the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years." (Revelation 20:5,6) Nowhere else does the Bible even speak of people becoming a priest unto God, but during the millennial reign of Christ. Now, back to the problems with this second anointing. #4. Nobody is given the power to attain Godhood. Notice the capital "G" in Godhood, which is idolatry. Anybody desiring to be exalted to Godhood is under the power of Satan, for there is only one God. This was the devil's desire from the beginning and the Mormons have fallen for his lies. The devil must be so happy, for they will be thrust down into the lake of fire with him. #5. It is non-biblical and blasphemy to say that a person can seal someone to eternal life. Only the Holy Spirit can confirm this upon our hearts, not a man. Surely, Mormons need to be delivered from the power of Satan, for they are under his demonic power. They need our prayers and more people to witness to them. Amen.
