Each of the eighty-nine Apostles called since then has been sustained as a prophet, seer, and revelator. We now move forward nobly and boldly, with courage and conviction, led by our venerable prophet, Ezra Taft Benson. He is in every respect entitled to our sustaining action. For forty-six years he has been sustained as an Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ.
He is now the senior Apostle on the earth. He has been ordained and set apart as the prophet, seer, and revelator to the world.
Other ways God can speak through revelation are:
He has been sustained as the President of the Church. He has been given two inspired Counselors to help him.

He is the presiding high priest over all the priesthood on the earth. He alone holds and exercises all of the keys of the kingdom under the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the head of this church and is the chief cornerstone. In his presidency, assisted by his two great Counselors and sustained by the Quorum of the Twelve, he is leading this work forward.
I do not believe members of this church can be in full harmony with the Savior without sustaining his living prophet on the earth, the President of the Church. If we do not sustain the living prophet, whoever he may be, we die spiritually. Ironically, some have died spiritually by exclusively following prophets who have long been dead. Others equivocate in their support of living prophets, trying to lift themselves up by putting down the living prophets, however subtly.
In our lifetime we have been favored with ongoing communication from the heavens, which have been open to the prophets of our time. Major divine pronouncements have included what we now know as section of the Doctrine and Covenants, given in Line upon line and precept upon precept, new knowledge and direction have been given to the Church.
Things to Consider When Receiving a Prophecy
Many other divine instructions have also been received. Much revelation received, in this time as well as anciently, has been doctrinal. Some of it has been operational and tactical. Much of it is not spectacular. These all had revelations for themselves.
In our time God has revealed how to administer the Church with a membership of over six million differently than when there were just six members of the Church. These differences include the use of modern technology, such as films, computers, and satellite broadcasts, to teach and communicate new ways to conduct missionary work in various nations; the location and building of temples; and many others. This process of continuous revelation comes to the Church very frequently. This is necessary for the Church to fulfill its mission.
Without it, we would fail.

In one sense the Church is still being organized. As light and knowledge are given, as prophecies are fulfilled and more intelligence is received, another step forward can be taken. This was well taught by President George Q. They cannot be too highly prized, nor can they be too closely studied. But in and of themselves, with all the light that they give, they are insufficient to guide the children of men and to lead them into the presence of God.
To be thus led requires a living Priesthood and constant revelation from God to the people according to the circumstances in which they may be placed. Jerreld L. When will this promised revelation come?

This continuous revelation will not and cannot be forced by outside pressure from people and events. The Church is governed by the prophet under the guidance and direction of God. Parley P. Pratt disclosed:. He reveals the laws, and he elects, chooses, or appoints the officers; and holds the right to reprove, to correct, or even to remove them at pleasure. Hence the necessity of a constant intercourse by direct revelation between him and his church.
If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him! Receiving revelatory knowledge from the Holy Spirit is a first step in operating in the spiritual gift of prophecy.
It can also be an important lead in to operating in other supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit such as discernment, word of knowledge, healing, deliverance and miracles. Remember that receiving revelatory knowledge is a ministry tool and a helpful means of learning to hear from God for others and us; it should never become a quest in itself. Rather, we should hunger and thirst for God and make the Bible our primary source of instruction and wisdom.
