"It is my duty to say to you that the need was never greater [for] new revelation than now. The doctrine of inspiration is lost. … Miracles, prophecy, … the holy life, exist as ancient history [only]. … Men have come to speak of … revelation as somewhat long ago given and done, as if God were dead. … It is the office of a true teacher to show us that God is, not was; that He speaketh, not spake."

What does [the Holy Ghost] do for the education of the children of men?  Far more than our academies do.  Our children have, by hard study, year after year, to acquire their learning in these human institutions; hard thinking is necessary, reasoning, gaining little by little, and it frequently requires many years of close application to become what is termed a learned man--a man that understands the sciences, that has worked his way through the various departments of mathematics, and perhaps geology, and mineralogy, and all the sciences, such as are usually taught in universities.  But the man filled with the Holy Ghost has got the advantage of students who graduate at our universities.  Why?  Because he can learn more in ten minutes, in regard to many things, than another, not so favored, can in all his life.  Indeed, he can learn some things by the operations of the Holy Ghost, which no natural man or woman could learn, however gifted they may be.  You may inquire where they could learn these things?  I answer, by the revelations of the Holy Ghost, which brings to light many things that are past, and shows things that are in the future.  The Lord is just as able to show one of his pupils, who will take the necessary steps to be taught, what will take place a year, or ten years, or a hundred, or a thousand or more years hence, as the principals in our universities are to teach persons concerning things present.  God is not confined to the present, or to things immediately concerning his pupils, or those who may enter into the university he has prepared, but he opens the past and future to the minds of men, just as Jesus promised his disciples, when he was about to leave them.  “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of Truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth; and he will show you things to come” [John 16:13].  (Journal of Discources, 19:284)

A person may profit by noticing the first intimation of the spirit of revelation; for instance, when you feel pure intelligence flowing into you, it may give you sudden strokes of ideas, so that by noticing it, you may find it fulfilled the same day or soon; [that is,] those things that were presented unto your minds by the Spirit of God, will come to pass; and thus by learning the Spirit of God and understanding it, you may grow into the principle of revelation, until you become perfect in Christ Jesus.

The voice of the Spirit is described in the scriptures as being neither loud nor harsh, not a voice of thunder, neither a voice of great tumultuous noise, but rather as still and small, of perfect mildness, as if it had been a whisper, and it can pierce even the very soul and cause the heart to burn. The Spirit does not get our attention by shouting.
