 What is Revelation?

Revelation is one of the foundational principles of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, and it was one of the topics covered in a #LDSface2face event with Elder Bednar and his wife.

This video clip comes from a discussion with Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Susan. Youth around the world asked Elder and Sister Bednar questions before and during the #LDSface2face event.

Elder Bednar was asked to answer questions regarding revelation – how we can receive it, and how to know whether the promptings come from God or from one’s own thoughts. His answer? “We overcomplicate and overanalyze this.”

One of the questions that came in was, “Can you teach me how to recognize the Holy Ghost when he speaks to me?”

If you have a thought to do something good, it’s prompted by the Holy Ghost.

Watch his full response in the video below. For more from Elder Bednar, check out his book Increase in Learningwhere he teaches more in depth how to get answers for yourself.

What tips do you have for recognizing the Spirit in your life?

Revelation is communication from God to His children. This guidance comes through various channels according to the needs and circumstances of individuals, families, and the Church as a whole.

If you have a thought to do something good, it's prompted by the Holy Ghost.
