“Murmur Ye, Because That Ye Shall Receive More of My Word”

Joseph F. McConkie, Robert L. Millet
It is a simple matter to discern the source of that spirit which protests the announcement that more of the word of the Lord has been restored to us. No one who truly loves the Lord or his word would do other than rejoice in the very thought that we might obtain the same.

“That Ye Shall Receive More of My Word”

All of the earth's inhabitants are the children of God, and as such all have claim upon his words. It matters not where they live or when they live. A just God cannot withhold his word from any who honestly seek it. Indeed, all are entitled to the opportunity, in his providence and economy, to accept or reject those truths by which sins are remitted and eternal rewards obtained.

To grant one people prophets and Apostles is to assure that all might have prophets and Apostles. For God to speak to one is for God to assure that he will speak to all. That faith which opened the heavens in the Old World also opened the heavens in the New World and upon the isles of the sea.
