What happens when a prophet reveals the truth?

In the last few weeks, I’ve read and listened to several discourses given by Ezra Taft Benson. He’s a powerful speaker and relays the message of the gospel the way I enjoy hearing it.

Here is a thought from President Benson to end our Wednesday.

”As a prophet reveals the truth it divides the people. The honest in heart heed his words, but the unrighteous either ignore the prophet or fight him. When the prophet points out the sins of the world, the worldly either want to close the mouth of the prophet, or else act as if the prophet didn’t exist, rather than repent of their sins. Popularity is never a test of truth. Many a prophet has been killed or cast out. As we come closer to the Lord’s second coming, you can expect that as the people of the world become more wicked, the prophet will be less popular with them.”

I’m thankful for my testimony of a living prophet. Just like President Benson, President Russell M. Nelson is our true living prophet today. I’ve read and listened to every single General Conference talk he has given. He is the mouthpiece of the Lord, and I testify to you that the Lord guides him.
