The LDS Daily WOOL© Archive - The Ninth Article of Faith


(3/3/02)
"By contrast, one of the unique features of the living church of Jesus Christ is its ever-expanding body of fundamental spiritual knowledge about man's identity and purpose, which enlarges 'the memory of this people' (Alma 37:8). In fact, our ninth article of faith declares that God 'will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.' [A of F 1:9] Thus nourished by a menu blending antiquity and futurity, Church members need never 'faint in [their] minds' (Heb. 12:3). Instead, we can be intellectually vibrant." Neal A. Maxwell, "God Will Yet Reveal," Ensign, Nov. 1986, p. 52

"A very encouraging portion of the ninth article of faith we have been considering is its conclusion, 'We believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.' Elder Boyd K. Packer, now Acting President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, stated: 'Revelation is a continuous principle in the Church. In one sense the Church is still being organized. As light and knowledge are given, as prophecies are fulfilled and more intelligence is received, another step forward can be taken' (The Holy Temple [1980], 137)." James E. Faust, "Continuing Revelation," Ensign, Aug. 1996, p. 6

"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints declares boldly that through another type of window, the windows of heaven, we can access spiritual information from the Source of light and truth. 'We believe all that God has revealed, all that He does now reveal, and we believe that He will yet reveal many great and important things pertaining to the Kingdom of God.' In this dispensation of the fulness of times, the revelation superhighway has been carrying heavy traffic of eternal truth ever since that day in the spring of 1820 when the Lord answered a farm boy's fervent prayer in the Sacred Grove and ushered in the restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ." Joseph B. Wirthlin, "Windows of Light and Truth," Ensign, Nov. 1995, p. 75

"The lifeblood of the Church is the Holy Ghost functioning through the holy priesthood. The Church is guided in every move by revelation." James A. Cullimore, "Grieve Not the Holy Spirit, Lest We Lose It," Ensign, May 1978, p. 26

(3/19/02)
"First, we should recognize that the Lord will speak to us through the Spirit in his own time and in his own way. Many people do not understand this principle. They believe that when they are ready and when it suits their convenience, they can call upon the Lord and he will immediately respond, even in the precise way they have prescribed. Revelation does not come that way." Dallin H. Oaks, "Teaching and Learning by the Spirit," Ensign, Mar. 1997, p. 10
