Modern Prophets


“And whatsoever they shall speak when moved upon by the Holy Ghost shall be scripture, shall be the will of the Lord, shall be the mind of the Lord, shall be the word of the Lord, shall be the voice of the Lord, and the power of God unto salvation. Behold, this is the promise of the Lord unto you, O ye my servants.” -Joseph Smith Jr., Doctrine and Covenants 68:4-5

“God made Aaron to be the mouthpiece for the children of Israel, and He will make me to be a god to you in His stead, and the Elders to be mouth for me; and if you don’t like it, you must lump it.” Joseph Smith, History of the Church, 6:319-320


Prophets were until John

Jesus  said, The law and the prophets were until John (no more prophets,): since that time the kingdom of God is preached, (in it’s fullness, no new revelations, no new ordinances, everything necessary for salvation has been revealed.) and every man presseth into it.”  Luke 16:16 (Revelation now comes to us by the Holy Spirit, not by prophets.)


God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;” Heb 1:1-2


“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” John 14:26
