WHY WE NEED A PROPHET

Why we need a prophet.
.
Sometimes I think we either take this for granted or we don’t understand how blessed we are. For those who don’t understand, pay close attention, and ask questions.
.
Let’s learn a little from Elder McConkie—A prophet is a living witness of the divine Sonship of the Lord Jesus Christ.
.
He is one who knows by personal revelation that Jesus is the Lord who worked out the infinite and eternal atonement by which salvation comes.
.
This ”testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” (Rev. 19:10), and one so gifted and so endowed has power, if need be, to ”prophesy of all things.” (Mosiah 5:3).
.
A prophet is a legal administrator who has been called of God to represent him in teaching the doctrines of salvation to men on earth.
.
He is one who is empowered to perform the ordinances of salvation so they will be binding on earth and sealed everlastingly in the heavens.
.
It is his privilege to receive revelation, to see visions, to entertain angels, and to see the face of God.
.
How can a church be the Lord’s Church unless it receives revelation from him?
