“Worlds without number have I created . . . by the word of my power, . . . which is mine Only Begotten Son.”

Moses 1:32–33

32 And by the word of my power, have I created them, which is mine Only Begotten Son, who is full of grace and truth.
33 And worlds without number have I created; and I also created them for mine own purpose; and by the Son I created them, which is mine Only Begotten.

President Marion G. Romney wrote:

“Jesus Christ, in the sense of being its Creator and Redeemer, is the Lord of the whole universe. Except for His mortal ministry accomplished on this earth, His service and relationship to other worlds and their inhabitants are the same as His service and relationship to this earth and its inhabitants. . . . In short, Jesus Christ, through whom God created the universe, was chosen to put into operation throughout the universe Elohim’s great plan ‘to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man’—the gospel of Jesus Christ—the only way whereby man can obtain eternal life.”
