When I share ordinances with the temple that include I, E, and SS why is the SS ordinance being completed before the I and E? If we didn't share those and did them in person such would not be allowed.
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
[ And, I happen to be a Member of the Church ... ]
The matter, has been canvased, on numerous occasions, in the various 'iterations' for the 'FamilySearch' Forums.
In regards to "Sealing to Spouse" ...
And, also in regards to "Sealing to Parents" of Children, whose Parents, have not had their "Temple" Work either, done; and/or "Completed" ...
One does not really have to be too concerned ...
We have been advised, that regardless if "Ordinances" are done 'Out of Sequence', not to worry; as, those "Ordinances" that are done 'Out of Sequence' simply DO NOT take effect, UNTIL the prerequisite "Ordinances" are "Completed".
And, most importantly ...
"Ordinances" that are done 'Out of Sequence' DO NOT have to be done again; as, they are STILL "Valid".
Here are some "Knowledge Articles" in 'FamilySearch':
Which states, among other things:
Vicarious ordinances performed out of sequence are valid, but they become effective only after the prerequisite ordinances are completed.
Although vicarious ordinances performed out of sequence are valid, they become effective only after the prerequisite ordinances are completed.
Of course ...
Where it states, among other things:
Most IMPORTANTLY ...
In one of the aforementioned "Knowledge Article":
It is preferable to have the ordinances done in sequence
[ Note: The Words ... It is preferable ]
In the other of the aforementioned "Knowledge Article":
It also states, among other things:
The FamilySearch Family Tree website does not clear ordinances if prerequisite ordinances have not been cleared or performed.
[ And ]
[ Note: The Words ... Whenever possible ]
So, basically ...
Do not be too concerned ...
The choice is yours.
I know that this might not give you comfort and address your concerns; but, I hope that this gives you some more perspective.
As such, the "Temples", DO NOT, have; or, need, to "Check", whether or not, the prerequisite "Ordinances" are "Completed"; before, allowing the undertaking of "Sealing to Spouse"; and, nor, do the "Temples", have; or, need, to "Check", whether or not, the "Temple" Work, for Parents, has been either, done; and/or "Completed", before, allowing the undertaking of "Sealing to Parents", of a Child; as, that "Ordinance" relates to the Child; and, NOT, the Parents.
The "Work" is hastening along ...
I may be wrong, but I think that the situation you are describing is directly related to how the Ordinances Ready feature works.
If you have shared ordinances with the temple system, then those ordinances are available for other Church members or members of your family to request and take to the temple.
Specifically, the Ordinances Ready feature looks in the following places for ordinances immediately available. (For instance, a patron may have just walked out the door and is on the way to the temple and wants to take a name from his/her list of ancestors needing temple work.)
While performing ordinances in the proper sequence is preferred, the Ordinances Ready feature and temple system allow for out-of-sequence work. Also, keep in mind that the sealing to spouse family file card does not include any other information about the individuals and their prerequisite ordinances.
I'm "guessing" that the Orlando Temple did not print the card, but that a patron used the Ordinances Ready feature and picked up the sealing to spouse that you recently shared with the temple system.
I hope this further explanation is helpful.
Family Tree may show that a person's ordinances were done out of sequence for several reasons.
The correct sequence of ordinances is as follows:
Thanks for sharing the above article. I am very family with this article. However, it doesn't really answer my question -- why was the SS performed today prior to the Initiatory and Endowment ordinances being completed for a family file card I shared with the temple system a week ago? If the temples enforce the proper order as reflected above (which I fully agree with), why wouldn't the system keep this type of out-of-sequence scenario from being possible?
That is a nicer way of saying -- why didn't the Orlando Florida Temple check the Initiatory and Endowment ordinances before they printed the SS in the first place?
Thanks for this information.
