Miscellaneous Pearls — Five important points regarding revelation

by Elder David A. Bednar

Important points regarding revelation, by Elder David A. Bednar

    1.  Revelation often comes concerning things not known beforehand.  (1 Nephi 4:6, Doctrine and Covenants 121:45)
    2.  Revelation is often repetitive in nature.   (2 Nephi 28:30, Moroni’s 4 visits to Joseph Smith in less than a day)
    3.  Revelation can be a concluding event rather than an explanation.  (2 Nephi 28:30)
    4.  Revelation is always based on the Lord’s timing, not our timing.   (Doctrine and Covenants 88:58-60)
    5.  We are expected to keep spiritual experiences confidential.  (Matthew 8:4)
