The Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ is the heart and core and center of revealed religion.

Elder Bruce R. McConkie Christ and the Creation

One of the Ways that Christ’s Atonement continues to support and sustain us is through the continuous flow of His words and counsel through His prophets and apostles.  As Elder Jeffrey R. Holland has said, “His words never cease.” (see video below)

I have previously posted about the increasing number of times that the Atonement has been mentioned in recent General Conference addresses.

One of the most wonderful testimonies of the steady and unceasing flow of revelation from heaven was given by President Spencer W. Kimball:

Expecting the spectacular, one may not be fully alerted to the constant flow of revealed communication. I say, in the deepest of humility, but also by the power and force of a burning testimony in my soul, that from the prophet of the Restoration to the prophet of our own year, the communication line is unbroken, the authority is continuous, a light, brilliant and penetrating, continues to shine. The sound of the voice of the Lord is a continuous melody and a thunderous appeal. For nearly a century and a half there has been no interruption.

Spencer W. Kimball, “Revelation: The Word of the Lord to His Prophets,” Ensign, May 1977, 76

Elder Holland provided a powerful testimony of continuing revelation in the following video:
