What is planet Kolob in the Mormon religion and how do they know about it?

The planet Kolob is mentioned in a less-often used book of scripture called the Book of Abraham, in the Pearl of Great Price. This is everything that Mormons know about Kolob: -Kolob is the greatest of the governing planets and is near to the place of God (Abraham 3:3) -Kolob is according to the Lords time, that is, a day on Kolob is a thousand years on earth (Abraham 3:4) -Kolob governs all the planets in the same order as earth, and is nigh unto the throne of God (Abraham 3:9) -Kolob is the greatest because it is the nearest to God (Abraham 3:16) -The time of Kolob was used on earth during the creation (Abraham 5:13) -Kolob is "the first creation, nearest to the celestial, or the residence of God. First in government, the last pertaining to the measurement of time. One day in Kolob is equal to a thousand years according to the measurement of this earth." (Abraham Facsimile 2 Figure 1) -The sun borrows it's light from Kolob (Abraham Facsimile 2 Figure 5) Kolob is also mentioned in one Mormon hymn, "If you could Hie to Kolob", which is about the grandeur and endlessness of God's creation. The planet Kolob doesn't really hold much doctrinal significance in Mormonism, and is rarely mentioned. It is simply the name of one of the planets mentioned in the Book of Abraham, which discusses astronomy and space as well as the creation of the earth. So, the short answer to "What is Kolob?" A planet mentioned in the Book of Abraham. As for how Mormons know about Kolob, the Book of Abraham was translated by Joseph Smith from papyrus which was believed to have come from the catacombs of Egypt. Mormons believe that it is the actual writing of the Biblical prophet Abraham, and much of it is a retelling of the early chapters of Genesis. You can read The Book of Abraham and the hymn 'If you could Hie to Kolob" at the "Related Links" below.

Where is planet kolob?

The Book of Abraham tells us that Kolob is nearest to the throne of God. Where exactly that is is anyone's guess. Also Kolob in ancient Hebrew means "voice of father." Kol means voice, Ab means father (as in Abraham, pronounced "ob raham"). Kolob could be a reference to Christ.

Kolob the planet of God?

The Book of Abraham states that Kolob is nearest to the throne of God, and that it's time is the same as the Lord's time (one day there is a thousand years here on earth). God also tells Abraham that it is the greatest of the Kokaubeam that he has seen. That is all we really know.

Do Mormons plan on returning to their home planet Kolob?

No, because Mormons do not believe that Kolob is their home planet. "Kolob" is a planet mentioned in only five verses of Mormon scripture. Each time it is called the planet "nearest to the throne of God". It is not the home of God, nor is it the home of mankind or of Mormons. All that has been revealed about Kolob is that it is near to the place of God and that it's time is the same as God's time. (Presumeably 1000 years on earth is a single day on Kolob - see 2 Peter 3:8) Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) do believe believe that our spirits lived with God prior to life on earth, and that the faithful and righteous who have accepted salvation through Jesus Christ will return to live with God after death. However, the place that they will live will NOT be Kolob. Ifthe Celestial Kingdom of God (heaven)is on any known planet, it would be on earth, after it has been cleansed and renewed to recieve its paradisiacal glory following the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and the resurrectionof all mankind.

What is the Planet Kolob to Mormons?

Kolob is mentioned in five verses of Mormon scripture, all in the book of Abraham. These verses are Abraham 3:3, 3:4, 3:9, 3:16 and 5:13. These verses say that Kolob is the greatest star, and is 'nearest to the throne of God'. Kolob follows God's time (1000 years as a single day, according to 2 Peter 3:8).Kolob is rarely brought up in worship services or doctrinal discussions both because very little is known about it, and because it has no bearing on one's salvation. The hymnbook used by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the mainstream Mormon church) contains one hymn about Kolob which is not often sung. You can see that hymn along with all the scripture verses about Kolob at the "Related Links" below.Another answer:Compare the Arabic word Qalb (also anglicized Qolob and Kolob). A star in the Ursa Minor constellation, just barely the second brightest, and appropriately the Beta, star in Ursa Minor, it represents the top front bowl star of the Little Dipper. Just a bit of trivia some might find interesting.
