Second Annointing

Second Annointing: A rare temple ordinance whereby a person has his or her “calling and election made sure.” Only Mormons who have received the second anointing can know for sure in this life if they will obtain godhood upon death. Not much is known about the second anointing because of the secret nature of this ceremony.
