In first Nephi after Lehi receives his vision regarding the tree of life, Nephi says "For he that diligently seeketh shall find; and the mysteries of God shall be unfolded unto them, by the power of the Holy Ghost, as well in these times as in times of old, and as well in times of old as in times to come; wherefore, the course of the Lord is one eternal round".
There are several ways that we are able to receive revelation, as I discussed earlier. The most common way to receive revelation is through the Holy Ghost; however, there are other ways.
As we prepare for general conference, I challenge each and every one of you to enter it with a question, pray with real intent, a sincere heart and faith that you will receive an answer, and then instead of falling asleep or dozing off, listen closely to what these apostles and our prophet have to say. They are in fact sustained as prophets, seers and wait for it... Revelators.
I have always questioned and have had certain edgy feelings regarding HOW Joseph Smith actually translated the Book of Mormon. I knew that he did it and the Book of Mormon is the most correct book and in my opinion should be called "The Book of Answers," but I wanted to know how he actually did it because no man could write a book like that with his own wisdom, especially during that time period.
Brothers and sisters, I have a testimony that as we follow those steps and have that faith we can receive revelation, receive answers to our questions, and gain that stronger testimony we are looking for. I know general conference can have a massive impact in our lives and that those men that speak to us speak through the word of God and everything they say is modern day scripture.
